President Donald Trump delivered a beautiful, somber monologue from the Oval Office Tuesday night to address the border crisis: “A crisis of the heart, a crisis of the Soul.”
Trump spoke to the American people with seriousness, with respect, with empathy. He spoke of the women and children who are brutal victims of the illegal immigration scourge. He did not speak in platitudes, as his predecessors did, as though Americans are beneath him. He addressed us intellectually. He appealed to our minds.
“This is the cycle of human suffering that I am determined to end.”
The speech was thorough and comprehensive on the facts: the need for $5.7 billion in funding, the human and financial cost of the drug epidemic. But he did something even more powerful, even more resonant. He appealed to us as fellow men. And he made Washington seem very, very small.
“Why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences, and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside,” President Trump said.
“This is just common sense,” President Trump said of the Wall.
“The federal government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only: because Democrats will not fund border security.”
“The only solution is for Democrats to pass a spending bill…This situation could be solved with a 45-minute meeting,” Trump said, noting that he has invited Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer back to the White House Wednesday.
“This is a choice between Right and Wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to our citizens who we serve,” Trump said.
For several years now, President Donald Trump has used jokes, has used attacks, has used trick plays, has used raucous declarations to cheering crowds, to make his point that Washington is corrupt and broken, and must be fixed. These methods have been effective, hilarious, even brilliant.
But tonight he did something so much more profound: He made us understand.
Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
