Trump Bypasses Congress to Sell Weapons to Saudi Arabia

Published

on

On Friday, the Trump administration bypassed Congress to fast track billions of dollars in arms sales to Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern allies.

This move drew heavy criticism from both sides of the political aisle.

The Trump administration invoked an obscure provision of arms control law to declare a national security emergency that would allow this sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Jordan to go through without Congress’s approval.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated in a letter to Senator James Risch, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, “I have determined that an emergency exists which requires the proposed sale in the national security interest of the United States, and, thus, waives the congressional review requirements.”

According to congressional aid and other reports, the arms packages sent to the Middle East are worth roughly $8 billion and consist of precision-guided bombs and other equipment to countries like Saudi Arabia and the UAE. These two countries are allies of the U.S., who support current policy on Iran and support the Yemeni government’s efforts to put down the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.

This conflict has drawn significant criticism from both sides of the aisle and even resulted in the successful passage of a resolution that would have ended the Yemeni conflict. In the end, the Trump administration ended up vetoing this resolution.

Biden’s Open Border Policies are a Magnet for Incoming Central American Caravans

The mother of all caravans is coming

Some things are simply too predictable.  According to Ben Wildon of SaraCarter.com, a new migrant caravan from Central America is quickly forming, and it’s heading northward to the U.S.

Incoming President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies have become a magnet for migrants who desire entering the U.S. illegally. They know very well that Biden will not drop the hammer when they illegally enter the country. Up to 9,000 migrants have apparently been making their way to the U.S. At least 1,000 of those migrants illegally entered Guatemala on January 15, 2021, according to a report by the Associated Press.

The pro-mass migration group Pueblo Sin Fronteras was ecstatic about the new caravan and urged the incoming Biden administration to welcome them with open arms in a statement that it released recently.

“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the statement said.

In addition, the group stated, ”We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”

Additionally, the group called for immigration reform (amnesty) by scrapping laws that make migrants stay in Mexico as their asylum requests are processed.

“A new United States Government is an opportunity to work with the Mexican Government to develop a cooperation plan with Central America to address the causes of migration, together with civil society organizations, as well as an opportunity to increase regional cooperation regarding the persons in need of protection, and to dismantle illegal and inhuman programs such as Remain in Mexico, the United States’ Asylum Cooperation Agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as well as the Title 42 expulsions by the United States authorities,” Pueblo Sin Fronteras stated.

According to a Fox News report, Biden has vowed to provide citizenship to illegal aliens and do away with a number of Trump era policies such as the enforcement of the public charge rule, the temporary immigration moratorium during the Wuhan virus pandemic, and several restrictions to the H1-B visa system that kept legal immigration in check. Additionally, Bden wants to implement a moratorium on ICE deportations.

Curiously, Susan Rice, a Biden administration policy advisor revealed that the U.S. would not be fully opening the borders to migrants right off the bat.

“Processing capacity at the border is not like a light that you can just switch on and off,” Rice told the Spanish news site EFE. “Migrants and asylum seekers absolutely should not believe those in the region peddling the idea that the border will suddenly be fully open to process everyone on Day 1. It will not.”

These caravans will only grow larger as time goes by. The Biden administration’s weak border policies serve as a magnet for migrants. Border security is a pillar of any coherent political jurisdiction. Failure to secure a border, will inevitably lead to political chaos.

If Republicans are serious about getting back into power, they should unapologetically push for strong border policies, zero tolerance on illegal immigration, and a legal immigration moratorium.
