A U.S. Congressman from Alabama walked all over CNN host John Berman on Friday morning during a debate about President Donald J. Trump’s planned border wall.
Berman tried to bait Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), asking him why he thought Trump had the authority to build the wall via a national emergency declaration.
“Because the United States code says so,” Brooks said.
After that mic drop moment, Brooks continued, laying into Harmon on his program “New Day.”
“What we are facing today is a national emergency of major proportions, and Congress has delegated to the president of the United States the right in its expressed United States code – you can look it up yourself – the right to declare a national emergency under certain circumstances. This meets that bill,” he said.
Berman asked Brooks what exactly the emergency was, and Brooks hit him with a litany of facts, something with which CNN is unfamiliar.
“With the southern border, we have the loss of at least 15,000 Americans a year. You have 2,000 that are homicides by illegal aliens, according to federal government data. You’ve got another 15,000, 16,000 that die each year from heroin overdoses, 90 percent of which comes across our porous southern border. That’s not counting the 55,000 additional deaths that are caused by overdoses, a significant amount of which comes across the southern border. So, how many dead people do you have to have, John, before you’ll consider it an emergency?”
The interview came in the midst of a raging battle over border security. Trump has shut the government down until the Democrats agree to fund a wall. It has been 21 days since the shutdown began, and Friday was another stalemate.
Border Migrants Demand Biden Grant Amnesty – Wearing Biden Campaign Shirts!
This is America Last.
Asylum seekers demonstrated at the San Ysidro border crossing south of California on Wednesday, urging Joe Biden to provide them with immigration amnesty. The migrants were wearing Joe Biden campaign shirts, in a nod to Biden’s pledges to grant amnesty and citizenship to illegal immigrants.
The Biden administration has already suspended President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy, in which economic migrants trying to game the US immigration system were required to wait adjudication of their cases in Mexico. This prevented rampant immigration fraud, with migrants frequently going missing after lodging their initial claim in the court system.
Biden has already admitted thousands of migrants waiting to enter the US under the Remain in Mexico policy, but the pace he’s moving at is insufficient for the tens of thousands of people waiting at the border. One of the migrants in Biden’s campaign shirts admitted she had come to the border for economic purposes. “What I want is to enter (the United States) and to be given the opportunity for my son to study, to move on.” Low quality of education systems in an applicant’s country is not accepted as a valid claim to asylum in the United States.
Biden has a strong constituency of support with illegal immigrants, who form a strong majority of the economic migrants who cross the southern border and are ultimately deported. However, under Biden’s “America Last” approach of open borders, it’s likely that the migrants will ultimately be granted residency, welfare, and possibly more if they’re granted asylee status.
Biden administration officials have denied the existence of a ‘crisis’ at the border, even with Customs and Border Patrol officials projecting that over 100,000 illegal alien minors will reach the border in May alone, hoping to take advantage of Biden’s open borders and globalist policies.
Under America Last, the interests of citizens are no longer the ultimate priority.
