There might be good news for America First patriots.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, arrests of border crossers at the southwestern border have dropped 75 percent since May. ZeroHedge argues that this represents one of the most significant reductions in border crossings in recent memory.
On Monday, December 9, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Monday that 33,510 people were arrested for illegal border crossings in November, which represented the sixth straight month of decline since May. For example, in May, there were 132,000 apprehensions.
In fact, the WSJ points out that the May-November decline is the largest in absolute numbers and second largest in percentage terms of any six-month period in the 21st century.
“This is a direct result due to this president’s strategies to address the historic flood of Central Americans, families, illegally crossing the border,” acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan declared during a press conference on Monday.
“The network of initiatives have worked and continues to work.”
The program in question, “Remain in Mexico,” is one of the largest factors behind the decline of border apprehensions, according to immigration experts. It has prevented some people from entering the U.S. because they figure out that they will likely be left to wait in Mexico for months while their cases are settled.
“I think the big factor has been the Trump administration policies,” stated Randy Capps, director of research of U.S. programs at the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute.
Capps also cited other factors such as crime rates and unemployment in the migrants’ home countries, which haven’t changed significantly in recent months.
The López Obrador government pledged to make the security effort permanent.
This is good news for immigration patriots.
Nevertheless, they should not rest.
Much more reforms will be needed to truly solve the immigration question.
From a potential immigration moratorium to vastly expanding border security, America’s immigration system must be drastically overhauled if it wants to continue functioning as a viable nation state.
Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther
Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.
One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.
While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley”
Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”
However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.
The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed. In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.
Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.
She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.
The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
