White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Friday that Democrats have been completely unwilling to negotiate with President Trump for a way to re-open the government, despite Trump’s repeated overtures to Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to make a deal for Wall funding.
“It’s a very sad day when we can’t even get Democrats to show up for work and sit down with us,” Sanders said on CBS, just one day after Congress convened for less than seven minutes and then adjourned until December 31 while the government shutdown continues and no Wall funding comes through the pipeline for President Trump to secure the border.

“Nancy Pelosi is only looking to protect her speakership, and not protect our borders. That’s why she is unwilling to negotiate with us,” Sanders said, noting that “We pick up ten known or suspected terrorists a day coming across our border.”
As for the child who died of influenza in U.S. custody, Sanders was sympathetic, and critical of the process by which illegal immigrant children are dangerously smuggled into the country.
“We’re encouraging people not to make this treacherous journey. It is dangerous,” Sanders said, noting that a will will stop the United States from “incentivizing people to make this dangerous journey.” Sanders also noted that some of the children are seeing doctors for the first time in their lives due to U.S. government intervention at the border, and that one-third of the women making the illegal journey are raped or sexually assaulted.
“It’s a sad day for America when the Mexican government is doing more to help secure our borders than the Democrats are,” Sanders said.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
