Border Wall

Extreme Vetting
Hopefully these measures will be more useful - and less perverted - than what the TSA does!

The U.S. State Department is proposing to require all nations to supply extensive amounts of data on their citizens to allow them to properly vet all visa applicants and to be able to successfully determine whether a traveler may pose a serious threat to the United States.

An official for the U.S. State Department stated, “The U.S. government’s national security screening and vetting procedures for visitors are constantly reviewed and refined to improve security and more effectively identify individuals who could pose a threat to the United States.”

According to sources, the United States is looking for all nations to release information about those with a criminal background in particular and on those that could possibly be having ties with terrorist groups.

A cable that has reportedly been sent out to all U.S. diplomats says, “This is the first time that the U.S. Government is setting standards for the information that is required from all countries specifically in support of immigration and traveler vetting.”

The cable requested U.S. diplomats to “underscore that while it is not our goal to impose a ban on immigration benefits, including visas, for citizens of any country, these standards are designed to mitigate risk, and failure to make progress could lead to security measures by the USG, including a presidential proclamation that would prohibit the entry of certain categories of foreign nationals of non-compliant countries.”

It is to be noted that with the new protocol being set in place, all nations shall have fifty days to comply with the request made by the United States, and failing to do so could initiate a travel ban against the nation. “Failure to provide this information in a timely manner will require us to assume your country does not meet the standards,” the stated.

John Sandweg, a former senior Homeland Security Department highlighted that this new request by the Trump administration could strain ties with nations that refuse to provide information beyond what has already been shared with the United States. “I don’t think you can ignore the political aspects of the unpopularity of the current administration. That puts political pressure to stand up to the administration,” said John Sandweg, a former senior Homeland Security Department official.

The memo further mentioned a series of new requirement that the United States shall be expecting form countries in order to further improvise their vetting procedures. It indicated some standards that the U.S. seeks from all countries to issue or show the intent of issuing to ensure that certain individuals “are not and do not have the potential to become a terrorist safe haven.”

Immigration Victory
You know he isn't a politician because he actually gets things done!

The latest figures released by the Whitehouse paint a glowing appraisal for Donald Trump, as it shows that 30,000 criminal immigrants have been arrested by ICE officials in the past 5 months. Almost 90% of the detainees had prior convictions for arson, murder, sexual assault, and domestic violence. These are not the type of people you want coming into the United States, and it vindicates the decision of Donald Trump to tighten security on immigration.

Ever since he became president Trump has been very vocal about the need to step up vigilance on illegal immigration, and he is now carrying out everything he promised he would do. He has already signed up Executive Orders to give control to law enforcement officials about the need to clean up U.S. cities. The illegal immigrants already living in the U.S. are being identified and detained, and any new aliens trying to break into the country must try harder now.

Illegal Immigration Crackdown

Recent reports have revealed that the crackdown on illegal immigration has met with success, with reports showing a 60% fall in the number of aliens looing to cross the South West of the Border. This is indicative of the success Trump has had in only his first 6 months in office, and with stricter laws coming into place soon, the days when immigrants could take advantage of lax border patrol and control are all but over. The increase in security has greatly reduced the number of immigrants, and it has also had an impact on economic migrants and refugees.

Trumps travel ban is already being pushed through by the Supreme Court, and it is only a matter of time before the United States is going to be completely free from the refugee crisis that is threatening Europe. Countries all around the world like Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt, Brazil, Pakistan, and China are also cracking down on illegal immigrants, and have tightened visa laws.

The War on Dangerous Immigration

Donald Trump has got a very clear agenda, which is in stark contrast with the previous administration. He has not been elected to try and please everyone, and make friends. He believes that he is making the right decision by declaring war on immigrants, and his hardline stance has already shown positive results. This is something that the mainstream media is finding hard to fathom, since they are pushing the national consensus on immigration.

However, a recent report released by Politico suggests that 60% Americans, and around 41% Democrats are in favor of his travel ban. Now, all Trump is left to deal with is his Wall, and plans have already been set in motion to see it to completion. Trump has already notified construction architects and firms, and instructed them to come up with a way to build this wall, with an estimated budget of $21.6 billion.

Building Walls

Trump sat next to his Mexican counterpart when he was at the G20 meeting in Hamburg, and he insisted once again that he will ‘absolutely’ see Mexico pay for the construction of the wall. The administration officials have already suggested that there has been massive progress made on illegal immigration, and the discussions surrounding the building of the wall is linked closely to NAFTA renegotiations taking place.

Trump now has momentum on his side, when it comes to immigration, and if it continues its course, then he will have public support and the Democratic Party will be forced to acknowledge he was right. This has placed the Democrats into a tricky situation, because the 2018 elections are just around the corner, and if they don’t get their act together, they will not be able to take back the House from Republicans.

However, they are not concerned about Trump getting his wish with the wall, and pushing through the transfer ban, since Democrats are still going to fight Trump till the end. It confounds belief that the Democratic Party is refusing to see sense, and realize that there is already a legal process in place for immigration in the country.

It is only a matter of time before all of them join the Trump Train, and quickly become united in their efforts to defeat illegal immigration in the United States.

Border Crossing
"Here, I filled this bag with gatorade and chips for your crossing, enjoy your tax-free stay in the USA!"

Despite President Trump’s pledge to tighten border security Border Patrol agents in one of the nation’s busiest sectors for illegal immigrants and drugs were ordered this week to stand back after a surveillance camera recorded a group entering the U.S. from Mexico, federal law enforcement sources told Judicial Watch. The incident occurred in the vast desert terrain between Arizona and Mexico, Border Patrol officials said.

An agency Buckeye camera operated out of a mobile truck recorded the illegal crossers entering through Nogales, a town of around 20,000 adjacent to the Mexican state of Sonora. The video camera is used by the Border Patrol to monitor areas for illegal crossings and can be panned to follow crossers’ movements, sources told Judicial Watch.

Upon crossing the border, the group of illegal immigrants entered what the feds refer to as a “Samaritan camp,” according to a Border Patrol official who spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retaliation from Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly’s management team. The special camps are operated by an Arizona-based open borders advocacy group called No Más Muertes (No More Deaths) and consist of several trailers on private property. The nonprofit’s mission is to end death and suffering in the Mexico-U.S. borderlands and enact immigration reform in America.

Besides the “Samaritan camps” along the Mexican border, the organization leaves water, food, blankets and other supplies along trails used by illegal immigrants to travel north. No Más Muertes also has staff in Mexico to provide phones for deportees and assistance, including first aid, for northbound migrants.

Although the organization’s sanctuary trailers are situated on the U.S. side of the border, federal agents are legally allowed to enter the property and remove the illegal crossers, law enforcement sources confirm. “If agents observe illegal conduct, apprehension does not require a warrant,” a federal law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the matter told Judicial Watch. In this case, probable cause had been established by the unlawful conduct observed by Border Patrol agents via the high-tech Buckeye camera. Instead of entering the property as legally allowed and removing the illegal aliens, agents were ordered to “negotiate” with the occupants,” Border Patrol officials said.

Photos produced by the surveillance camera were also produced to Judicial Watch by outraged Border Patrol officials who say Obama-era, open borders policies are still being implemented by Kelly’s management team. “Instead of proactively patrolling a porous and volatile border, Border Patrol resources are being utilized on the perimeter of the property to thwart any further incursions into or retreats from the sanctuary camp,” according to a law enforcement source involved in the Nogales incident.

Veteran agents say, that although Trump promised to toughen up security along the porous and increasingly violent Mexican border, for unknown reasons his DHS secretary continues to implement Obama sanctuary policies. There is a great concern among rank-and-file agents that these passive, limited enforcement policies increase the risk to agents and decrease the deterrence of the Trump border strategy.

Just a few weeks ago, Kelly stripped Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents of their independent enforcement authority by implementing a new policy that requires a supervisor’s permission to issue a detainer for illegal aliens suspected of crimes. Judicial Watch obtained the document outlining the new policy, which federal agents say is a constraint that creates a bottleneck and hampers their ability to take efficient on-site action against criminals in the country illegally.

To avoid a potential government shutdown over President Donald Trump’s border wall funding, Texas Senator Ted Cruz proposed that the wall be funded by money forfeited from the criminal prosecution of drug kingpins such as the drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

US prosecutors are currently trying to seize over $14 billion worth of assets and profits from Guzman’s criminal operations, which included several drug smuggling rings.

“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border,” Cruz said.

Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will help keep Americans safe:

Cruz named the bill he proposed, the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, or The EL CHAPO act for short. The Texas senator also created a petition to help gather support for his bill, emphasizing that El Chapo’s money should be used to fund the wall, instead of taxpayers’ money.

Build the wall and make El Chapo pay for it

— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) April 25, 2017

Fellow Republican Newt Gingrich was quick to support Cruz’s bill; he called the bill’s intention a “grand and fitting irony.”

Following Ted Cruz’s announcement, Gingrich tweeted, “Ted Cruz is exactly right to focus on confiscating Mexican drug money to pay for the wall. What a grand and fitting irony.”

Guzman, former head of the Sinaloa Cartel, is now awaiting federal trial after being arrested and extradited to the US for trying to smuggle 500 tons of cocaine into the US through the southern border.
