Obama Officials Say Trump is Right About The Crisis On The Border

Published

on

Obama-era officials are praising Trump’s border security policies.

Obama’s former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson spoke out in favor of Trump’s national emergency declaration at the southern border. Johnson declared that we are “truly in a crisis” at the border and has broken from from the Democratic Party line of not acknowledging this growing crisis.

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, Johnson gave his thoughts about the current border crisis:

A little bit of context here. When I was in office in Kirstjen Nielsen’s job, at her desk, I’d get to work around 6:30 in the morning, and there would be my intelligence book sitting on my desk, the PDB, and also the apprehension numbers from the day before.

Johnson continued, “My staff would tell you if it was under 1,000 apprehension the day before, that was a relatively good number, and if it was above 1,000, it was a relatively bad number, and I was going to be in a bad mood the whole day.”

The former DHS secretary concluded, “On Tuesday there were 4,000 apprehensions. I know that a thousand overwhelms the system.”

Johnson was not the only ex-Obama official to praise Trump’s border wall. Obama’s Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan lauded Trump for his border wall push during an interview with the Law & Crime Network, declaring that “The wall works.”

Democratic party presidential hopefuls have done everything they can to downplay this crisis so far.

In February, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker asserted in an interview with Fox News that “If there’s any emergency at the border, it’s the one he created, the crisis he created”, pinning the blame on Donald Trump.

Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke told NBC News that he would take down the existing border wall if he were in power because it hasn’t “in any demonstrable way made us safer.”

The Washington Examiner reports that Kamala Harris called Trump’s emergency declaration a “TV stunt”.

Even religious figures like Pope Francis have attacked Trump’s wall plans stating that “Walls, however, are against communication, they are for isolation and those who build them will become prisoners.”

Political elites can complain about Trump’s immigration policies all they want, but everyday American voters have a different view on this issue.

BLP reported how the vast majority of voters place immigration as their #1 issue for the 2020 elections. A look across the pond shows how dangerous mass migration be, with migrants having trouble assimilating and certain areas turning into crime-infested slums.

With Trump securing $1 billion from the Pentagon for his wall, immigration talks will continue to heat up. However, any meaningful reforms will have to wait until 2020 due to the split Congress.

For Trump’s reforms to come into fruition, he will need to have both chambers of Congress in line.

NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor

Published

on

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.

Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
