Trump Vows to Build Wall Without Congress

Published

on

President Donald J. Trump vowed Tuesday morning to build his promised Southern border wall even if Congress will not vote to fund it.

“People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country, the Military will build the remaining sections of the Wall. They know how important it is!” he said on Twitter.

The first part of the Tweet is a clear exaggeration. Some parts of an existing border fence have been reinforced situationally, like when members of the migrant caravan from South America stormed the border near the San Ysidro Port of Entry over the past two weeks. By and large, though, and much to the chagrin of Trump supporters, there is no wall, as promised.

But Trump appeared steadfast in delivering on his promise Tuesday.

In fact, the wall would be the perfect job for The United States Army Corps of Engineers. Made up of 37,000 civilian and military personnel, the organization is a division of the Department of Defense (DOD). Since the DOD is a federal agency in the executive branch, the Army Corps of Engineers falls directly under the purview of  Trump. “Infrastructure Support” is one of the primary activities undertaken by the organization, which is one of the largest public engineering and construction firms in the world.

Trump knows that he will need to deliver on his promise of a wall if he wants to maintain support and momentum going into the 2020 election cycle. If Tuesday’s Tweet is to be believed, Americans could see if he has what it takes to defy Congress and get the job done.

Greyhound Gives Amnesty to Illegal Immigrant Riders, Bans Immigration Checks on Their Buses

They have caved to the leftists.

Published

on

Greyhound has announced that they will not permit immigration checks on their buses any longer, effectively giving amnesty for illegals who are using their services to evade ICE and federal enforcement.

“Our primary concern is the safety of our customers and team members, and we are confident these changes will lead to an improved experience for all parties involved,” the company said. “We plan to begin the implementation of these changes immediately.”

Previously, Greyhound had allowed U.S. Customs and Border Protection to come aboard their buses and perform immigration checks. Far-left groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had criticized their policy, saying it harmed the constitutional rights of the individuals in the country illegally.

“We are pleased to see Greyhound clearly communicate that it does not consent to racial profiling and harassment on its buses,” said Andrea Flores, who works as the deputy director of policy for the ACLU’s Equality Division, to the AP. “By protecting its customers and employees, Greyhound is sending a message that it prioritizes the communities it serves.”

Liberal state attorney generals had threatened Greyhound with lawsuits if they kept allowing immigration enforcement on their buses. Far-left Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson is thrilled that his threats made the company capitulate.

“Today’s announcement from Greyhound confirms what should have been obvious to the company since I contacted them a year ago – it has both the power and the responsibility to stand up for its customers, who suffered for far too long from Greyhound’s indifference to CBP’s suspicion-less bus raids and harassment,” Ferguson said in his statement responding to the change in Greyhound’s policy.

President Trump had changed a policy from the Obama administration that relaxed enforcement of immigration law due to concerns over “racial profiling.” Under Obama, agents were forced to stay away from train and bus stations, which are common hubs for illegals, unless they found “actionable intelligence” about an alien, and their actions had to be directly approved from Border Patrol headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Trump gave immigration officers more discretion to enforce the law in order to remedy the national emergency that has resulted from the border being flooded by waves of third-world migrants.

“The U.S. Border Patrol conducts regular outreach with transportation companies to foster good working relationships,” the Border Patrol said in a statement earlier this month.

Left-wing groups will stop at nothing to replace Americans with third-world foreigners who will vote Democrat and usher in a new era of socialism. It may be time for these subversive, anti-American entities to lose their tax-exempt status, or be ejected from the country, like Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orban did with the Soros network in his nation.
