In the wee hours of Thursday morning, a budget bill so awful that it has the likes of #NeverTrump loser Rick Wilson claiming vindication, was introduced to Congress. Fortunately, Wilson is wrong about everything, otherwise this reporter would be a tad miffed.
Regardless, the bill, so bad that only the completely out-of-touch pencil pushers in Congress could have comprised it, is not ideal. That is not an opinion. It is an objective fact for those of us in the America First camp.
The second of the bill’s lowlights, after amnesty for those claiming a relationship with unaccompanied minors, is the fact that the bill provides nearly twice as much funding for “refugee assistance” as it does for building the wall, as noted by several conservative pundits.
“The bill provides $3.4 billion in refugee assistance, which is $74 million more than last year. Remember, a lot of that is not just bringing in refugees but resettling the Central American MS-13 ‘youth’ as refugees,” said Daniel Horowitz, founder of Conservative Review.

In contrast, the bill will provide only $1.3 billion for a border wall, a decrease from the first-demanded $25 billion, and most-recently demanded $5 billion.
As an added bonus, the foreign countries of Israel, Jordan, and Ukraine will receive, in total, about $5.2 billion in foreign aid.
How’s that for America first?

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
