Attention Lindsey Graham: you’ve got to beat your Democrat friends over the head with the information from this article. You know who I’m talking about. You told us that you couldn’t find a single Democrat in the Senate willing to co-sponsor your legislation that fixes our asylum laws, fixes the Flores Agreement and closes the gaping loopholes in our immigration laws. We believed you, too.
Sen. Graham, what’s in that article is disgusting. It’s the type of stuff that Democrats should be forced to defend. Daily. When the crew at Fox & Friends asked you what it would take to pass your legislation, you were right in saying that we need fewer Democrats and more Republicans. I couldn’t agree more. Especially after reading this:
Border Patrol agents at the FOB were contacted by Mexican government officials in July regarding two subjects wanted on kidnapping and homicide charges. One of the men was apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol in November 2018 near Eagle Pass, while the other surrendered to Customs and Border Protection Officers at the Eagle Pass Port of Entry in December 2018. Both men made credible fear claims, and were ordered removed by an immigration judge after those claims were denied.
Had those criminals not been rejected for asylum, they would’ve gotten released into the US, where they likely would’ve preyed on immigrant populations. That’s totally unacceptable. Those asylum laws must be fixed. If Democrats won’t participate in fixing them, then their decisions need to become the subject of negative ads against them the next time they run for re-election.
If Democrats think that security moms want these types of predators meandering through their streets, Democrats should think again. If Democrats don’t get serious about fixing the border, they should expect a thumping next November. It won’t be pretty.
The people know that the porous US border is where tons of illegal drugs that kill US citizens come from. They know that the porous US border is also where criminals enter the US. Anyone thinking that we’re ok with this broken system must be a thick-headed Democrat.
If I hear another Democrat insist that “this isn’t who we are” if we don’t enforce the laws that Congress has passed and that the president has signed, I’ll punch that Democrat. Ignoring laws that we don’t like isn’t who we are. Further, telling me that we don’t have the resources to prosecute criminals tells me that those offices aren’t run efficiently or that those people are lying to us.
Thankfully, President Trump’s wall is getting built. That isn’t the total answer but it’s sure to help CBP. There’s already reporting out there that the new wall is a force multiplier. That’s because walls help funnel coyotes, drug smugglers and human traffickers into chokepoints, which increase agents’ efficiency.
If the Democrats don’t do anything to fix our immigration and asylum laws, they’ll pay the price in states like Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Democrats are salivating at the possibility of flipping the Senate seat that Martha McSally currently holds in Arizona. Rest assured that a broken immigration system helps Sen. McSally.
