Francis’s statement disregards not only the sovereignty of the American nation-state, but also ignorance of how generous America has been to the poor and vulnerable of the world.
Whatever their reasons for leaving, a wall or a physical barrier will do nothing to stop immigrants from crossing the border.
After promising again and again to stop illegal immigration, cartel violence, and the drug epidemic, members of Congress are complaining that Donald Trump is now taking action.
Federal officials say they have released more than 107,000 migrant families and children into the United States since December 21, and that arrests of people illegally present in the country are falling as resources are diverted to the border.
When it comes to immigration reform, conservatives tend to put far too much faith in the federal government and central planning.
Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon said ‘just following orders’ is no more an excuse for U.S. border officials than it was ‘back in Germany.’
Democrats have found a sneaky way to tilt the political playing field in their favor without having to reform the immigration system.
Central American families determined to claim asylum won’t be stopped by a wall, nor will cartels that profit big from smuggling them into the United States.
‘[The border wall] has pushed migrants and asylum seekers and refugees to the most inhospitable stretches of the U.S.-Mexico border, ensuring their suffering and death,’ former member of Congress Beto O’Rourke says.
Nancy Pelosi’s flippant wall remarks show that she’s not taking this crisis seriously. Meanwhile, Americans continue to die from illegal drug overdoses and children continue to be trafficked as U.S. entry tickets.
With Beto O’Rourke as a perfect foil, Trump kicked off his 2020 reelection bid by painting Democrats as ‘outside the mainstream.’
The Times is somewhere between misleading by omission and outright lying to their readers about the threats posed by lack of border security.
There is no question that Trump lost the battle of his own making. It is also true that this is not the final battle in whether the country seeks to uphold rule of law at her border.
‘The speaker… said as long as government is shut down we’re not going to be doing business as usual,’ Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said to CNN. ‘The state of the union is off.’
Averaging national public opinion polls conducted in 2018 reveals that 6 in 10 Americans oppose building a border wall. But just a few years ago, at least that many supported a wall.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have left left themselves no fallback position. And that’s why they will lose.
The Democrats’ theme for the evening was ‘facts, not fear.’ Many major media also adopted the same theme.
Trump and the Democrats could agree to more funding for border security in exchange for more funding for processing asylum-seekers, but they won’t.
A series of court rulings, glitches in the asylum system, and well-intentioned (but flawed) legislation have combined to open a gigantic hole in the legal architecture of immigration enforcement.
The left is divided on issues of identity and security. Republicans should realize that there’s an opportunity to appeal to the alienated working class.
