Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s dinner was rudely interrupted by protestors from the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America, eventually forcing her to flee the restaurant.
“Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is in a Mexican restaurant, one of the protestor’s screeched. “The f****** gall! Shame on you!”
We’re in downtown DC disrupting DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s dinner at MXDC. The irony isn’t lost on us that this is a Mexican restaurant. Nielsen has led the program to tear apart familes. We are here to tell her to put an end to separating families, to step down as head of the department, and that ICE and CBP must be abolished #abolishICE #abolishCBP

“Abolish ICE” was a favorite, albeit uncreative, chant of the group.
The group screamed, shouted and chanted at Nielsen for more than 10 minutes without being asked to leave the private establishment.
At one point, one of the protestors yelled at other patrons of the restaurant to “remember what Kirstjen Nielsen’s face looks like” for when she “comes to lock up your children.”
“We’re in downtown DC disrupting DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s dinner at MXDC,” said the group’s post on Facebook. “The irony isn’t lost on us that this is a Mexican restaurant. Nielsen has led the program to tell her to put an end to separating families, to step down as head of the department, and that ICE and CBP must be abolished.”
The protestors, of course, are fact-free.
“Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen revealed Monday that 10,000 of the 12,000 children detained at the border came to the border without parents with him, smacking down the mainstream media narrative that the Trump administration is tearing many families apart out of callous disregard for illegal immigrants.
The illegal immigrant child-detention program that was criticized during the Obama administration is a policy that President Donald Trump is trying to end, pressuring Democrats to get on board with an immigration bill that funds his Wall and creates merit-based immigration among other policy planks.”
BLP Passage Ends.
Interesting choice of civic engagement.
Texas Representative Introducing Legislation for State to Finish “President Donald J. Trump Wall”
The wall can be completed at a state level.
A Texas legislator is pledging to complete sections of President Donald Trump’s border wall, proposing new legislation that would enable the state of Texas to resume construction of the wall system abandoned by Joe Biden.
Bryan Slaton of House District 2 is pledging to name the complete wall the “President Donald J. Trump Wall” in House Bill 2862.
We all know Biden has opened the flood gates at our border. That's why today, I have filed HB 2862 to finish President Trump's wall in Texas.
If the federal government won't do its job protecting American citizens, then Texas will stand in the gap and do it for them.#txlege

“President Trump fought to bring real border security and was opposed by Republicans and Democrats in Congress. While hundreds of miles of new wall were built under his leadership, the Biden administration has already ceased border wall construction,” Slaton said in a press statement announcing the legislation.
“It is time for Texas to stand up and finish the work that President Trump started. Let’s finish building the border wall now.”
It’s likely legal for state governments to take eminent domain measures to acquire land on the border and build a protective wall on it. Contractors already lined up to work with the federal government may even be willing to negotiate rates with Texas, having fully engaged in building more than 450 miles of wall during Donald Trump’s presidency. Slaton’s legislation would also formally request compensation for wall construction from the federal government. The bill is currently awaiting assignment to a committee in the Texas House of Representatives.
Customs and Border Patrol agents have pointed to the border wall system as a lifesaver on the southern border, enabling law enforcement to focus resources in more concentrated areas where illegal immigration and drug trafficking have been focused.
An Arizona Sheriff is pointing to the cessation of wall construction as an invitation of criminality. Likening the border regions of Cochise County to a “crime scene,” Mark Dannels is describing the abandoned construction sites as “roads for the cartels,” pointing to rates of illegal immigration and smuggling that have doubled since Joe Biden ascended to the presidential throne.
Arizona legislators may soon follow in funding border wall construction at a state level, leaving California and New Mexico as Democrat-leaning states unlikely to secure the nation’s borders with states funds.
