Congressional Democrats are poised to offer a border wall deal to President Trump and Republicans that includes a mere small percentage of funds necessary to fully construct a ‘big, beautiful’ wall on the southern border.
Leading Democrats have said to arranged a deal with Republican legislators that would provide somewhere between $1.3 and $2 billion for the construction of barriers on the southern border. It appears that these funds would be earmarked for structures more closely resembling bollard fences than the wall that was President Trump’s signature campaign promise.
Estimates gauging the full cost of a comprehensive border wall usually price between $20 and $25 billion, leaving immigration patriots with a mere 10% of the funding required for its construction under the agreement.
The deal is being pitched as a means to avoid another costly government shutdown. If signed into law, it would likely only provide around 200 miles of fencing on the southern border, which spans around 2,000 miles.
It’s likely not a coincidence that Democrats insist on barriers that fall short of a wall. While fencing is an effective anti-vehicular measure, it’s likely the structures funded in the deal wouldn’t be designed to deter personnel from crossing the border, leaving America’s frontier insecure for the increasingly large groups of migrants freely crossing and requesting asylum.
Upon arrival in the United States, migrants would try their luck in the U.S asylum court system. Should they succeed in obtaining permanent residency, leading Democrats and migration advocates would reliably make a political push to provide them with American citizenship and voting rights.
The alternative of declaring a national emergency to construct a wall still remains a possibility according to the White House, enabling President Trump to avoid Democratic obstruction.
SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed
A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
A Tuesday morning crash involving an SUV and a semi truck has killed at least 15 people.
The crash occurred near Holtville, California, a town close to both the Arizona border and the US-Mexico border. The SUV, according to the New York Times, pulled into the path of the semi at an intersection.
14 of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at the hospital. At least six other victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital as well.
It is believed that 27 passengers were packed inside the SUV, which had a maximum legal capacity of seven to eight people. Because of this and the crash’s proximity to the US-Mexico border, it is probable that the passengers were illegal immigrants being smuggled into the United States.
The California Highway Patrol has not officially confirmed their immigration status because it is still under investigation, but Dr. Adolphe Edward of the El Centro Regional Medical Center said he believes the victims to be illegal aliens.
Big League Politics is closely following the illegal immigration crisis that’s been brewing since Joe Biden’s assumption of the White House. We recently reported on how the Border Patrol expects 13,000 illegal alien minors to arrive at the US-Mexico border in just the month of May. We also reported on Biden’s DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that he didn’t think the situation at the border constitutes a crisis:
Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.
Illegal immigration is harmful to both the nation and the migrants. Tuesday’s accident near the border was a tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
