Two influential Californians have paired up in an attempt to stop President Donald J. Trump from building that big beautiful wall on the southern border.
“Declaring a national emergency would be fruitless and cynical,” said #NeverTrump pundit Ben Shapiro, linking to an op-ed that he wrote on his own blog.

Shapiro’s piece found an audience in Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), a through and through leftist who, much like Shapiro, has opposed Trump at nearly every turn. Depending on how closely you follow politics, this may or may not be surprising.

Thi dynamic is typical of elite politicians and pundits. Party affiliation really does not make a difference, as long as someone in the D.C. establishment is running the ship.
Shapiro has been an anti-Trump magnate from the start. He wrote a column called “I Will Never Vote For Donald Trump. Here’s Why,” on his blog in March of 2016.
“I will never vote for Donald Trump because I stand with certain principles. I stand with small government and free markets and religious freedom and personal responsibility. Donald Trump stands against all of these things,” the piece said.
Of course, establishment conservatives like Shapiro failed to conserve anything before Trump took office. The principles of small government and free markets are long gone in America, thanks to the constant rolling over of “conservative” politicians of Shapiro’s brand for the past 50 years.
Speaking of religious freedom, Trump has been the most pro-life president president in a generation, and likewise has dissolved the power of the federal government by slashing tens of thousands of unnecessary regulations.
But still, Shapiro finds himself on the side of liberals like Ted Lieu when it comes to the issue of immigration. Shapiro’s blog is funded by fracking billionaires Dan and Farris Wilks, who have a vested interest in cheap labor – hence the open borders advocacy. Lieu is simply a numbskull Democrat toeing the party line in order to keep his cushy Congressional gig. Together, they embody America’s political class.
Forget what the American people have demanded. Shapiro and Lieu are far too invested in their own interests to listen.

Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election
They think they’ll be granted amnesty.
Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.
CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.
Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.
Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.
Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.
Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.
Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
