Pelosi Tries To Postpone State of the Union for ‘Security’

Published

on

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is attempting to block President Donald J. Trump from delivering the annual State of the Union address in the midst of the partial federal government shutdown.

“Pelosi said the partial shutdown has hamstrung both the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security, potentially harming the security planning that precedes the primetime address,” according to Politico.

Pelosi’s security argument is disingenuous at best. This, from the leader of the party that has been advocated for violence against Trump since his campaign? This reporter isn’t buying it.

Rather, Pelosi is likely attempting to block Trump from having the entire nation as an audience to make a case for the border wall. If the government is still shutdown on the date of the speech, Jan. 29, Americans will be more anxious than ever to get the feds back to work. Allowing Trump an audience to bulldoze the uncooperative Democrats who are holding up the deal under those circumstances could have a devastating impact on the for the political left.

“Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th,” Pelosi reportedly wrote in a letter to Trump.

The shutdown remains in a stalemate on day 25, with Trump waiting at the White House for them to accept his terms. He continued to turn up the heat on Twitter Wednesday morning.

“It is becoming more and more obvious that the Radical Democrats are a Party of open borders and crime. They want nothing to do with the major Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border,” he said.

Over 200 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Bust of Human Smuggling Operation in Laredo, Texas

242 arrests.

Published

More than 200 illegal aliens were transferred to the custody of Customs and Border Patrol last week, with the wave of arrests coming as authorities moved upon a human smuggling ring operating in the Laredo, Texas area.

Border Patrol agents most recently recounted finding 25 people hiding within a horse trailer at an immigration checkpoint on Thursday. They’ve encountered other smuggling attempts with the use of commercial tractor-trailers, box trucks, agriculture and fuel containers, and a travel trailer. CBP has reported making 242 arrests last week alone, a figure not seen since before the coronavirus pandemic.

At least two of the men arrested by CBP for attempting to unlawfully enter the country have outstanding arrest warrants for sex crimes in the United States, one of which is said to have targeted a minor. Both of these suspects are currently facing extradition proceedings for their alleged crimes.

The south Texas city appears to have become a hub for cartel-affiliated human smuggling, which has resumed in force following a lull during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. CBP and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on a human smuggling stash house in the city last month, in which 47 illegal aliens were being stashed.

The freeze on illegal immigration that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic appears to largely be over, with criminal smuggling groups now once again attempting to move large groups of unlawful aliens into the United States. It’s very likely that smuggling organizations will attempt to move their customers across the southern border in a greatly increased capacity if Joe Biden is inaugurated in January. The Democrat candidate has already confirmed he only intends to deport illegal aliens who are convicted of a violent felony, which would largely abandon the enforcement of American immigration law.
