Bernie Sanders Doesn’t Think ICE Should Do Their Job

Published

on

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders declared on CBS’s Face the Nation that is “not appropriate” to deport illegal aliens who have broken American immigration laws.

In response to President Trump’s announcement to crack down on illegal immigration, which entails ICE deporting “millions of illegal aliens”, Sanders pushed back against Trump’s suggestion for stronger enforcement.

Margaret Brennan asked Sanders, “There are ICE raids set to start Sunday morning. Estimates of some 2000 people or so who will be targeted, is this appropriate?”

Sanders then responded, “No, it’s not. It is absolutely not appropriate.”

Brennan poked and prodded Sanders even further:

Specifically on this point, the 2,000 who are supposed to be targeted haven’t should be up for court dates. , they’re not following the asylum process, the legal standard when they’re here. So, should they be prosecuted? Should they be deported?

Sanders pushed back, saying, “I don’t like this deportation thing at all, and I think Trump uses this as a beginning to do worse things to come.”

However, Trump decided to not go through with the raids on Saturday, stating,”I want to give the Democrats every last chance to quickly negotiate simple changes to Asylum and Loopholes.”

He continued:

This will fix the Southern Border, together with the help that Mexico is now giving us. Probably won’t happen, but worth a try. Two weeks and big Deportation begins!

It was later uncovered that the raids might have been pulled back because of leaks originating from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

A Trump administration official commented on this leak:

Leaking the locations and details to stop the operation from happening not only harmed operational integrity, but it put the safety and well-being of his own officers in jeopardy.

The same official added:

The ICE mission is enforcing the nation’s laws and ensuring those who are unlawfully present in the country are removed if ordered by a judge; this will leave an un-erasable mark on his tenure.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offered her own comments on this immigration drama.

In a tweet, she warned illegal immigrants to watch out for ICE raids across the country.

Warning: The Trump admin is expected to begin ICE raids across the country TOMORROW, targeting people for round up.

As the 2020 elections rapidly approach, we can expect the Left to dial up immigration demagoguery and continue pushing for uncontrolled mass migration.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
