President Donald Trump still holds all the cards in his staredown with Washington Democrats, following an epic trip to the southern border to highlight the national emergency that is already upon us.
Whether or not Trump will choose to acknowledge that national emergency is up to him — but his apparent flinch Friday is giving the Democrats some renewed hope. (JUST DO IT: Full List of 31 Active National Emergencies).
“The easy solution is for me to call a national emergency. I could do that very quickly. I have the absolute right to do it. But I’m not going to do it so fast. Because this is something Congress should do,” President Trump said, which makes sense but it also has the whiff of weakness.
Nancy Pelosi already gave Trump a one-word answer when he asked if she would fund his Wall. Her answer was “No.” That meeting adjourned, much like Congress adjourned for the weekend with no Wall-based solutions from their end. So why is the president still waiting for Congress?
Declaring a national emergency is not the work of a “dictator.” In fact, President Trump has already done it thrice, far less than his predecessor Barack Obama, who declared 13 national emergencies, including eleven that are still ongoing. That’s right. America is currently experiencing 31 active national emergencies.
You’d think criminal cartels pushing billions of dollars of heroin into the United States would be enough to warrant #32.
Democrats want the Senate to pass their bills to re-open the federal government without providing Wall funding. The mainstream media will keep agitating for this — as ABC’s Jon Karl did in the White House — and the drumbeat will get louder and louder. President Trump does not really care what the media thinks, but guess who does? Republicans in Congress. Time and again, Republican lawmakers prove that they are the only ones who take media pressure campaigns seriously. If Republicans start breaking ranks, Trump loses leverage.

The unionists showed up outside the White House chanting “Pay Us Now,” which doesn’t present a very uplifting image of America in the eyes of the world. These people are demanding money from the president even though their very lack of employment, at this current time, proves their “non-essential” nature.
Some government workers have gained newfound dignity in the private sector, taking on Uber driving gigs that teach them how to provide value to other people, which is the fundamental building block of our supply-and-demand economy. The shutdown, then, has given them an education and could help them to unlock the talent and potential that the government system works to suppress.
“Thank you, Mr. President, for believing in me,” is what these furloughed government workers should be saying as they cast off the chains of their meaningless employment. What a gift to escape the coffee-stained paper pushing of federal government work and venture out into a new world unencumbered by the low-hanging ceiling tiles of bureaucracy. Oh, the places they will go!
Some people in the administration think that this debate exists in the 2-D Narrative of mainstream media spin. It doesn’t. The divide on this issue exists between the American people — who have almost no voice anymore except through their president — and the Media, which can’t stop imposing itself on us every waking minute of every day.
The American people want a Wall, and the American people want President Donald Trump and Stephen Miller to make good on their slogan: “Whatever It Takes.”

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE
CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.
Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.
According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.
It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.
Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.
Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side. Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement.
— Mayor Eric Garcetti (@MayorOfLA) February 15, 2020
If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.
Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
