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 Arrests More Aliens at Border in February Than Any Year Since 2006
Customs and Border Patrol detained more aliens at the southern border in February than any other year since 2006. Nearly 100,000 aliens were arrested last month, according to CBP officials who spoke to Reuters. February isn’t usually a big month for crossings at the southern border, with migrants instead usually preferring to try to enter the United States in the spring and summer months.
The surge in illegal immigration directly follows President Joe Biden’s embrace of “America Last” border and asylum policies. It’s hard to tell if the majority of the aliens remain in detention, have been set free into the country, or have been deported under coronavirus expulsion policies. Biden has all but abolished immigration detention for illegals who have been in the United States for an extended period of time, but the rules surrounding migrants who have been recently caught at the southern border are entirely unclear.
CBP officials are expecting 13,000 unaccompanied minors to arrive at the southern border in the month of May alone, presenting a crisis for an administration that has refused to respond to a surge of illegal migration with anything other than promises of residency, welfare benefits, and taxpayer-funded services.
On Wednesday, CBP apprehended more than 4,500 migrants on a single day, a figure that may very well represent a March record. Less arrests usually mean less aliens are infiltrating the borders, a phenomenon that President Trump’s “America First” immigration policies deterred through a combination of border wall, ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policies, and swift deportations of illegals.
The Biden administration has refused to consider any buffed border policies to deter new waves of illegal migrants, with ‘caravan’ style formations of thousands of migrants likely to arrive in the spring and the summer. Asylum seekers have appeared at the southern border wearing Biden campaign shirts, touting the establishment politician’s staunch loyalty to illegal immigrants over working and middle-class American citizens.
