President Donald J. Trump is said to have recently let loose on two prominent Republicans who have advised him cave to Democrats and re-open in the government without an agreed upon plan for funding a border wall.
First, Trump rebuked a plan offered up by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
Graham suggested on Fox News that Trump reopen the government for a short period of time in an attempt to get the Democrats to move on funding for a wall.
“I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time, like three weeks, before he pulls the plug, see if we can get a deal,” Graham said. ““If we can’t at the end of three weeks, all bets are off; see if he can do it by himself with the emergency powers. That is my recommendation.”
“I’m not interested,” Trump reportedly said in response. “I want to get it solved. I don’t want to just delay it.”
Similarly, Trump’s Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney tried to cut a deal with the Democrats earlier this month, for which he was leveled by Trump.
“President Trump chastised his new Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, over his handling of shutdown talks, creating an awkward scene in front of congressional leaders of both parties, according to two sources who were present,” Axios reported.
Apparently, Mulvaney interrupted Trump’s negotiations with the Democratic Party leaders in the room. Trump reportedly cut Mulvaney off, telling him he “fucked it all up.”
The pair joked about the situation after the meeting, but Axios reported that Trump has not been pleased with Mulvaney since the former budget director since Mulvaney initially inserted a $1.6 billion request for wall funding into the 2019 budget. Trump wants $5.8 billion, and has reportedly questioned Mulvaney on why where he came up the $1.6 billion figure in the first place.
It appears that Trump is battling both parties to get his wall funded. Republicans have not seen spine like this from a member of their party during their entire time in government, which they have spent giving into the whims far-left Democrats in the name of “bipartisanship,” which only seems to work in one direction. Standing up for what they want is new territory for them, but Trump has stayed the course.

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.
