SHUTDOWN CITY: What The Starting Players Are Saying About The Border Wall Standoff



President Donald Trump’s stated desire to shut down the federal government over the Democrats’ refusal to fund his border wall galvanized Trump’s supporters after a prolonged stretch of relative malaise.

The shutdown is set for December 22, and the Trump White House is making it pretty clear that they don’t intend on wasting time with a quickie “stopgap” budget measure to prevent the move. President Trump wants $5 billion to complete his Wall to stop illegal immigrants from hopping our border fences, as some members of the media-celebrated caravan recently did.

As the possible shutdown nears, the Washington political class is clamoring for intel on what the Commander in Chief will decide to do. Sadly for them, Trump is refusing to show his hand — much like Generals Patton and MacArthur. Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale said that “fewer reporters know what is going on because @realdonaldtrump has figured out who the leakers are. Isolation is actually cleaning up the leaks.”

There is a lot of media chatter about Trump’s supposed blunder in taking credit for the shutdown, during his awesome trick-play confrontation of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, because the conventional thinking in Washington is that shutdowns are bad and parties should blame the other side for them. Despite the MAGA base’s enthusiasm for the shutdown, President Trump appeared to adopt some of that rhetoric in his recent address without backing off an inch from the concept of shutting it down.

Immigration adviser Stephen Miller appeared on Face the Nation Sunday to proclaim that the White House will do whatever is necessary to get the Wall. Presumably, a government shutdown falls under the umbrella of whatever is necessary.

Cartoonist Ben Garrison spoke for MAGA Nation in celebrating Trump’s maneuver of inviting the press into his White House smackdown of Pelosi and Schumer. Trump supporters are clearly very enthusiastic about the White House’s willingness to go on offense.

“Government shutdowns are the biggest nothing out there,” said Trump 2020 Advisory Board member Tony Shaffer in response to my recent article This Government Shutdown Is Going To Be AWESOME. “When they happen it only shows how much of the government is not needed as life goes on and demonstrates the need to cut ‘services.’ So yeah, bring on the huge shutdown!”

New acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, formerly a conservative congressman, made it clear months ago that a “good shutdown” could fix #ThisTown.

President Trump is Deporting Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors to Prevent Spread of Coronavirus

Left-wing groups are agitating to stop the President from deporting these illegals.



Trump 24 Million Democrats

President Donald Trump has started deporting unaccompanied minors found trying to illegally cross the U.S. border in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and liberals are enraged as a result.

The administration is enforcing a March 20 order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that no unauthorized individual could cross the border during the coronavirus pandemic.

The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that the CDC policy is being applied to migrant children at the border, according to BuzzFeed News.

“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” a CBP official told BuzzFeed News in a statement.

“When minors are encountered without adult family members, CBP works closely with their home countries to transfer them to the custody of government officials and reunite them with their families quickly and safely, if possible,” they added.

Left-wing activists who support the migrant trafficking industry are up in arms that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the law and putting Americans first during an unprecedented pandemic.

“Children arriving at the border, many of whom have endured unimaginable harm at home and on their journey, are the most vulnerable group encountered by border officials. Unaccompanied children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, a policy analyst at the American Immigration Council. “The answer to coronavirus cannot be to put children in harm’s way.”

Eleanor Acer, who works as the refugee protection director for Human Rights First, said that the Trump administration is “using” the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse “to advance their long-standing goal of overturning US laws protecting vulnerable children and people seeking asylum.”

During the crisis, the number of referrals for unaccompanied minors who arrive illegally into the U.S. has dropped precipitously. Referrals from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped 78 percent over the past month, with only four unaccompanied minor aliens being funneled toward the US refugee agency on Sunday.

“This is a drastic drop in referrals, especially compared to 2019, when well over a hundred unaccompanied children were referred to ORR each day,” said Sarah Pierce, an analyst with the Migration Policy Institute.

“While it likely reflects decreased arrivals at the southern border, it also suggests that many are being refused entry, in direct contravention of federal law,” she added.

The administration’s opponents claim that the President is not following the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), a law that was signed by former President George W. Bush in 2008 that allows illegals to flood the border.

“Reports that DHS is not following the TVPRA are deeply troubling,” wrote Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), in a letter issued to acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.

“We have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of these children. Children do not have to be put in harm’s way to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. DHS has the ability and capacity to protect both these children and the public. We request that DHS stop this practice immediately,” they added.

Even during a coronavirus crisis, the far-left Democrats are still refusing to shut down the border even if it means the pandemic will worsen as a direct result.
