California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is leading the charge to challenge President Trump’s national emergency declaration on the border with Mexico.
16 states have banded to together to stop Trump’s emergency order. As expected, they are seeking the injunction to stop Trump’s order in the Ninth Circuit, which has proven to be a thorn in the Trump administration’s side.
The 16 states include:
All of these states, with the exception of Maryland, are under Democratic governorship
This lawsuit could delay the construction of the wall for weeks or even months.
Of course, this is the open border Democrats’ play, as they would like to drag this process out as much as possible and ultimately kill any possibility of a wall being built.
Ironically, Democrats are accusing President Trump of “an unconstitutional and unlawful scheme” and their lawsuit contends that the states are attempting “to protect their residents, natural resources, and economic interests from President Donald J. Trump’s flagrant disregard of fundamental separation of powers principles ingrained in the United States Constitution.”
This is amusing when we look at the Democrat’s track record of the past few decades, which is one filled with repeated constitutional abuse, especially in areas concerning foreign policy, healthcare, and education. It seems like when Democrats are out of power, they turn into constitutionalists all of the sudden.
At first glance, it looks like Congress will pass a resolution that would end the emergency through simple majority votes in the House and Senate. We can thank a handful of weak-kneed Republicans for this resolution’s passage. Instead of standing for a strong border and a sane immigration system, Republicans like Marco Rubio are content with the open border status quo.
The good news is that Trump is planning to veto this resolution and Senate Democrats are unsure that they have the votes to override Trump’s veto.
DC is clearly more concerned with obstructing Trump at all costs rather than providing an actual solution at the border.
What’s happening at the border is no laughing matter, as drug and human trafficking continue unabated. Not to mention the potential cultural changes the U.S. could face if maintains its open border status quo.
One can hope that this latest obstructionist scheme meets a fiery death once it reaches the Supreme Court.
For the sake of America’s survival as a nation, we need a rational border policy now.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
