Leftist Congressman, Ben Shapiro Team Up To Stop Trump’s Plan To Build Wall

Published

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.

“I agree with that declaring a national emergency would be fruitless and cynical. ,” Lieu said, quoting the Shapiro Tweet.

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.

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

on

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.
