Alaska National Guard Border Wall

Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy offered President Donald J. Trump the use of the Alaska National Guard to protect U.S.-Mexico border, calling the situation at the unprotected border a crisis.

“Today I notified the White House that Alaska and our National Guard, if called upon, stand ready to support the national security crisis at the southern border,” said Dunleavy in a statement recorded last weekend.

He continued, “While the southern border may seem far away and distant, this crisis is real, and a potential threat to every American, including Alaskans.”

“I look forward to our congressional delegation and Alaskans joining me to support our president’s mission to secure our borders.”

The Alaska National Guard includes both the 176th Wing and 168th Wing, offering President Trump the potential addition of 3,000 or more soldiers to guard the border until the wall is built, though reports indicate they have have not yet been called into action.

The statement was published after President Trump declared a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border last week, using the declaration to free up previously unused funds for construction of the border wall.

Other states, including California, have announced lawsuits to prevent President Trump from building the wall or defending the border, causing the president to come out swinging in defense of the national emergency declaration.

Big League Politics reported:

President Donald Trump laid out a strong Oval Office defense Tuesday for his “absolute right” to declare a national emergency to finish building the southern border Wall. Partisan lawsuits will probably lead us to the Supreme Court, where Barack Obama protected his health care takeover in 2012, and where Trump has a pretty good chance of protecting his Wall given the recent seating of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump has even said that he plans to utilize one of Obama’s national emergencies to combat drug cartels as one piece of his comprehensive Wall plan.

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE

CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.

Published

Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.

According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.

It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.

Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.

If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.

Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
