BREAKING: Government Will Reopen, Still No Wall Funding

Published

on

President Donald J. Trump spoke at the Rose Garden Friday afternoon, announcing a short-term spending deal which will temporarily reopen the federal government while Democrats and Republicans work out a deal on border security.

“In a short while, I will sign a bill to reopen our government for three weeks, until Feb. 13,” Trump said at the press conference.

The bill will fund the government for three weeks. He said that a bipartisan committee of congresspeople will immediately begin working with U.S. Border Patrol and law enforcement to “put together a border security package.” He said that over the past 36 days, while the government has been shut down, Democrats have recognized the need for a physical barrier at the southern border.

“Walls should not be controversial,” Trump said. “Every Border Patrol agent I’ve talked to has told me that walls work. It’s just common sense. Walls work.”

Trump thanked government employees who have faced “incredible hardship” during the shutdown.

He spent the rest of the speech making an argument in favor of the wall, returning to the basic talking points regarding drugs pouring over the border, violent drug cartels trafficking women across the border, and the litany of other issues caused by open borders.

One quarter of federal employees, deemed non-essential, have been furloughed. Many are still working, but not getting paid after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) rejected a deal offered last weekend by Trump that would have funded a border wall in exchange for an extension of the DACA program. Those employees will be paid in full, but the pressure is on as they miss their second paycheck Friday.

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June

They’re infiltrating the borders again.

Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.

Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.

Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.

Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.

State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
