SPIKE: Illegal Alien Border Crossings are Soaring in 2019

Published

on

Illegal immigration has been on the uptick so far in 2019.

With unusually high levels of illegal immigration in January and February at the southern border, 2019 is set to have the highest levels of illegal immigration in a decade.

Approximately 58,000 migrants were detained on the border with Mexico. And the numbers have only grown bigger, with 70,000 more migrants apprehended in February.

The Department of Homeland Security expects higher rates of illegal immigrants for March and April, putting 2019 on pace to have record numbers of illegals entering the country.

A Homeland Security Official told The Washington Post that the “numbers are staggering, and we’re incredibly worried that we will see another huge increase in March.”

Detractors of President Trump’s emergency order at the southern border nit-pick the numbers by highlighting how these numbers are historically lower than previous levels of illegal immigration during the early 1990s and 2000s.

But border patrol officials point out a difference in the type of illegal immigration that is generating this crisis.

The large number of Central American migrants making their way to the southern border are not from Mexico or Canada, which don’t allow for quick deportations because of trafficking laws. Many of these migrants are family units, not individuals trying to cross the border. Additionally, these kinds of migrants actively seek border enforcement officials and are simply pleading for asylum.

According to Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost, this profile of migration is overstretching her agency’s resources.

Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost says the combination has stretched her agency to the breaking point.

Provost made her case in front of a House Judiciary committee:

“Each day, nearly 25 percent of my agents are diverted away from our border security mission to care for, transport and process family members and unaccompanied children.”

Provost added:

“We know that when agents are occupied, narcotics smugglers, criminal aliens, gang members and others use the opportunity to violate our borders and our laws.”

Indeed, what’s going on at the border is no trivial matter.

Sadly, the political class has kicked the can down the road since Trump was elected in 2016, and has now forced him to make an emergency declaration.

Beyond the immediate violence human and drug traffickers can bring about, there are very real long-term problems with the U.S.’s porous borders and flawed immigration system.

Large-scale ethnic ghettoes and welfare dependency will soon become the norm in the U.S. should it not address the question of immigration correctly.

Frankly, our political leaders needs to wake up.

Trump Pardons 9/11 Hero & Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik

Published

on

On February 18, 2020, President Donald Trump announced the pardon of Bernard Kerik, the former NYPD commissioner who spent time in prison for tax fraud and lying to the government.

This news came hours after Trump pardoned Edward DeBartolo Jr., the former San Francisco 49ers owner was convicted in a gambling fraud scandal. DeBartolo Jr. built one of the most successful franchises in NFL history.

Kerik was nominated to be the nation’s head of homeland security on one occasion and spent three years in prison before being released in 2013.

He was viewed as a hero for leading the NYPD during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. However, Kerik’s image took a hit when he became the first New York City police commissioner to be imprisoned for federal crimes.

His legal problems spilled over and muddied the political aspirations of other elected officials, such as former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

While leaving the White House Tuesday afternoon, Trump said he “pardoned” Kerik “a man who had many recommendations from a lot of good people.”

After being pardoned, Kerik went on Twitter to thank the president writing that “there are no words to express my appreciation and gratitude to President Trump. He continued by saying that “with the exception of the birth of my children, today is one of the greatest days in my life.”

Kerik proceed to describe his prison experience as “dying with your eyes open,’ citing the “collateral consequences and the permanent loss of many of your civil and constitutional rights are personally devastating.”

Kerik volunteered to be Giuliani’s chauffeur and provided security during his first unsuccessful run for mayor. Once he secured the mayor’s office in 1993, Giuliani promoted Kerik, a high school dropout, to the highest echelons of New York City government.

The mayor eventually promoted his former bodyguard as the city’s 40th police commissioner in 2001.

Kerik almost became President George Bush’s Homeland Security Secretary in 2004, but he was quickly dropped as a nominee.

Two days afterwards, The Daily News reported that Larry Ray, who had been the best man at Kerik’s wedding, had presented evidence of Kerik failing to report thousands of dollars in gifts he’d received while he was an employee of New York City.
