TRUMP: Will Be Easier to Climb Mt. Everest Than Over Border Wall

It’s a high bar.

Published

on

President Donald J. Trump described the wall that he plans to build on the southern border, comparing it to the world’s most notoriously difficult-to-scale mountain.

“It’s a big wall, it’s a strong wall,” Trump told a group of Sheriffs in Washington, D.C. Wednesday. “They would be able to climb Mt. Everest a lot easier, I think.”

Trump is in the midst of a battle with Congress over obtaining funding for the wall, which Democrats have vowed not to support, though there are rumors that a deal will be arranged to avoid a second government shutdown which would go into effect on Feb. 15.

Trump has considered declaring a national emergency and using military funds to build the wall, bypassing Congress.

Big League Politics reported:

10 United States Code 284, “Support for counterdrug activities and activities to counter transnational organized crime,” allows President Donald Trump to direct the Secretary of Defense to secure the southern border with a wall, the Pentagon confirms.

10 United States Code 284, which authorizes President Trump to deploy the military to the Southern border, and to do a lot of other things, and for clarity if you look it up in the dictionary the word fence and the word barrier includes walls of a variety of different materials. So having been said it seems to me that 10 USC 284 can be used by the United States to direct the United States military to build a wall,” Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama asked Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood.

“You are correct,” said Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood. “That use of authority would authorize the Secretary of Defense to erect barriers, roads, fencing, those type of materials to disrupt drug smuggling.”

Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien

Invasion.

Published

on

A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.

CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.

The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.

Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.

Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
