Missouri Senator Roy Blunt was uninvited from a Missouri GOP gathering after he voted with Democrats against President Donald J. Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the United States-Mexico border.
The Kansas City Star reports that Wanda Martens, a member of Missouri’s Christian County Republican Central Committee, made clear in an email leaked to the Star that Blunt is not welcome at the local party’s annual Lincoln/Trump Day Dinner on April 6 after he sided with Democrats in an attempt to stop President Trump’s national emergency declaration.
Martens serves as the local party committee’s events chair. She told the senator in her email, which was obtained by The Kansas City Star, that she did not want to see him when the local party holds its Lincoln/Trump Day Dinner on April 6 in Ozark, Missouri, one of the most conservative areas in the state.
Many states hold Lincoln Day Dinner events, but the Missouri Republican Party specifically changed the name to include President Trump to show support and draw more Republicans.
Other Missouri Republicans cited similar disgust with Blunt over his decision to side with Democrats over the president when it comes to border security.
The Star reported that Ed Martin, president of the Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense fund, believes that “Anybody thanking Roy for doing that is probably against Trump,” and another man was quoted as saying “I used to support Blunt. I just can’t do it anymore,” adding, “I’m sorry. He’s not supporting my president in the way that I anticipated.”
Blunt justified his vote using the talking point that says President Trump’s use of a national emergency to stop the endless flow of illegal immigrants, gangs, and drugs across the border would potentially allow future Democrat presidents to use national emergency powers to confiscate guns.
In an earlier article in the Star, Blunt said “Democrats have already made clear that they believe they could use this same authority to impose policies like gun control or the Green New Deal,” which most Republicans seem to agree is naive considering national emergency powers have existed in the United States for generations at this point.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
