Warren: “Decrimilalize Illegal Border Crossing”

If elected president in 2020, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) will implement a scorched-earth policy on America’s sovereignty and our border security agents, even decriminalizing illegal border crossings. It comes complete with a vow to “reshape CBP and ICE from top to bottom,” create an Office of New Americans, raise the number of refugees by more than 100,000 in her first year as well, and put more than 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship. Warren calls it a “rules-based system that is fair, humane, and that reflects our values.” But if public polling is any indication, the American people say, “Thanks but no thanks.” Good luck with all that, Liz.

Here’s more from Free Beacon…

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has released a new immigration plan that would include decriminalizing crossing the border in a Medium post on Thursday.

“We need expanded legal immigration that will grow our economy, reunite families, and meet our labor market demands. We need real reform that provides cost-effective security at our borders, addresses the root causes of migration, and provides a path to status and citizenship so that our neighbors don’t have to live in fear,” the post reads, “That’s why today I’m announcing my plan for immigration reform — to create a rules-based system that is fair, humane, and that reflects our values.”

Along with decriminalizing border crossings, Warren vows to “reshape CBP and ICE from top to bottom” to focus them on smuggling and trafficking, and to use methods of monitoring migrants outside of detention, such as parole, case management, and surveillance.

Warren: Illegal Aliens Should Not Be Illegal

In her latest open borders remarks, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made it clear she doesn’t believe in American sovereignty. “I think that the whole notion of criminalizing the approach to coming across the border without documentation is not making anybody any safer. We just need to be in a different position on this,” Warren said in an interview this week. Nevermind U.S. Customs and Border Protection data revealing that among the two caravans arriving in the U.S. between October 2018 and January 2019 the “women and children” Warren aims to protect were among some 1,520 previously deported illegal aliens convicted of crimes in the U.S., including murder, rape, and assault. Warren also conveniently forgets intel on ISIS incursions at the Mexican border.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) does not believe it should be a criminal offense to cross the border illegally, she said during an interview with the California Nation podcast, which was posted Monday.

While the presidential candidate hit a number of issues during the broad discussion, Section 1325 of the immigration code, which makes it a criminal offense for people to cross the border illegally, became a highlight.

“Are you in favor of repealing that?” she was asked.

“I am,” Warren said, arguing that “criminalizing” illegal entry does not make people safer.

Democrats Put on Red Alert to Block ANY Border Wall Funds

Democrats are refusing to acknowledge the open borders crisis of their own making and are continuing to deny any federal funding for President Trump’s border wall ahead of federal fiscal year 2020, which begins Oct. 1. “In nearly half of the 12 annual appropriations bills House Democrats have ushered through committee, they have included specific language to block wall-related emergency powers,” reported The Hill. The next big fight is the homeland security appropriations bill, which at this point rescinds $6 million in previous funding and provides zero border wall funding or additional funds for agents or checkpoints.

Here’s more from The Hill…

Democrats on high alert to block any funding for Trump’s border wall
Democrats are doing everything they can to block off any federal funding for President Trump’s border wall amid rising tensions over the crisis at the border.

In nearly half of the 12 annual appropriations bills House Democrats have ushered through committee, they have included specific language to block wall-related emergency powers, limit the use of flexible funds and oppose refilling accounts that could be used to build the barrier.

Their efforts come as anger within the Democratic Party is rising over the treatment of migrants detained at the border. Lawmakers who visited the border on Monday described conditions as “inhumane” and “abhorrent.”

CA State Budget Expands Healthcare for Illegals

Being on the brink of financial collapse is not stopping California officials from expanding healthcare for illegal aliens in its latest budget signed by Governor Gavin Newsom (D). “Newsom last month proposed providing $98 million a year to cover low-income illegal immigrants between the ages of 19 and 25,” according to Fox News, but has now signed off on a “more extreme state Assembly’s bill [which proposed covering all illegal immigrants over the age of 19 living in California]-a proposal that would cost an estimated $3.4 billion.” Then again, that may be just a drop in the bankruptcy bucket considering the Third World diseases flooding into the Sanctuary State.

Here’s more from Town Hall…

I mean it shouldn’t shock us, but for those who are opposed to this nonsense, and there are probably quite a few in California, it’s just another sign that this progressive cesspool only becomes more filthy with the latest $215 billion budget. It’s been signed into law. Nothing we can do now. The California Republican Party is all but dead and virtual single-party rule has allowed for this insanity to flourish unchecked. It’s part of the illegal alien lust that has driven California Democrats for years. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed off on the budget last week (via Fox News):

California’s new budget, signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom … expands health care for illegal immigrants and includes a penalty for people who do not purchase health insurance.
The provisions were among several measures in the $214.8 billion operating budget that Newsom signed before the midnight deadline. It is the largest in the state’s history, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Pelosi: “Shouldn’t be a Crime” to Cross Border Illegally

Nancy Pelosi has gone full open borders, now advocating that illegal immigration into the U.S. should no longer be a crime. “You cannot say anybody coming across the border is breaking the law,” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. According to her logic, no one can be called an illegal immigrant, and the act cannot be called a crime because some may be seeking asylum. That’s curious. Whatever shall we do with the good folks at ISIS attempting to cross into the U.S. and set up terror shops? Should we offer them free health care as well?

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi embraced the view of some Democratic presidential contenders that illegal immigration should not be a crime.

“You cannot say anybody coming across the border is breaking the law,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday in her weekly press conference. “Not until there is a determination whether they can stay or not.”

Pelosi echoed the view of some of the Democrats running for president, including Julián Castro, who called for the repeal of the specific statute during the presidential debate Wednesday night.

Dems Want to Give Health Insurance to Illegals

During the second round of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debates, candidates made it clear that they want to give health care to illegals. When asked to “raise your hand if your government health care plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants,” every single one of them raised their hand. Joe Biden even insisted that illegal immigrants “contribute to the well-being of the country” and should get health coverage rather than jail time for committing a felony. The bottom line should one of these clowns prevail in 2020 is that illegal immigration won’t be illegal anymore, and the hordes of immigrants coming across will get free health care to boot. That ought to work out really well. Just ask Germany.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

In the second round of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Thursday, all ten of the candidates onstage said their government health care plans would provide coverage for illegal immigrants.

NBC News co-anchor Savannah Guthrie asked the candidates — including frontrunners former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg — if they would cover illegal immigrants.

“Raise your hand if your government healthcare plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants,” she said.

Every single candidate raised his or her hand.

Dems Divided over Border Relief

Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic cabal proposed a series of changes to a $4.5 billion relief package allegedly intended to address the humanitarian crisis at America’s southern border with Mexico. Changes include requiring Customs and Border Protection “to establish health standards for children and adults in custody, including for nutrition and hygiene,” according to The Hill. Pelosi emphasized that the bill was not an immigration reform bill “to meet the needs of our [illegal immigrant] children.” In other words, Democrats are still hyperventilating over the notion that our sovereign borders should be-gasp-secured. Yet again, Pelosi has demonstrated why 2020 continues to incline in President Trump’s favor.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote today on a bill that could further send $4.5 billion to alleviate substandard humanitarian conditions in migrant facilities at the southwestern border. However, Democratic lawmakers are divided on the provisions in the bill that many feel give President Trump too much leeway to use the funds to increase border enforcement, as reported by the New York Times.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., met with several congressional Democrats on Monday evening to discuss the rift over the bill which, if passed, could quickly send money to several migrant programs that are running out of cash. Many progressive Democrats wanted further restrictions in the legislation that would stop Trump from being able to funnel the funds toward border enforcement programs.

AOC Defends “Concentration Camp” Remarks

Our favorite socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) refuses to recant and apologize for comparing immigration detention facilities–used by both the Trump and Obama administrations–to Holocaust-era concentration camps, with such egregious remarks as, “The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are.” She then doubled down: “This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. This is not hyperbole.” Amid the outcry, she clarified that the Nazis ran “death camps.” A distinction without a difference, Alexandria? AOC is well on her way to alienating every corridor of the American electorate.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) doubled down on her egregious comparison of the Trump administration’s use of detention facilities on the southern border to concentration camps and the Holocaust.

Ocasio-Cortez made the stunning remarks during an Instagram live video late on Monday night, alleging: “The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever.”

Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her false statement, tweeting: “This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis.”

DOJ Brings Foreign Snitches to U.S., Loses Them

The Department of Justice “sponsored” more than 5,000 foreign nationals to come to the U.S. between 2015 and 2017 to act as witnesses in criminal cases… and then promptly lost track of 62 of them. In 18 of the cases, DOJ components “did not request sponsorship renewal or termination in a timely manner and therefore let the foreign nationals fall into an illegal status,” according to a June audit by the DOJ inspector general. In one instance, “the case agent did not inform FBI headquarters of the foreign national’s status until over 7 months after determining that the individual had absconded.”

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

The Department of Justice “sponsored” about 5,500 foreign nationals to come to or stay in the country between 2015 and 2017 in order to provide assistance to the DOJ in criminal cases, according to a June audit from the DOJ inspector general.

Sixty-two absconded, escaping the DOJ’s monitoring, and in 18 cases, DOJ components “did not request sponsorship renewal or termination in a timely manner and therefore let the foreign nationals fall into an illegal status,” according to the report.

“Failing to report instances of absconsion inhibits DHS’s ability to execute its responsibilities to locate and handle absconders. This is especially problematic for law enforcement-sponsored foreign nationals because these individuals often have criminal histories or are involved with criminal organizations,” the report said.

Hundreds of Africans Arrive in San Antonio

Hundreds of African illegal aliens from the Ebola-riddled Democratic Republic of Congo arrived in San Antonio last week hoping to take advantage of the Left’s open borders free for all. “It really has been a bit of an anomaly for us,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul Ortiz. “I think most of them, you know, obviously are flying to different locations, and then when they find themselves congregating in a location, then they start to formulate a plan just south of the U.S. Mexican border here.” It should come as no surprise that orders from U.S. Customs for them to appear in court are being ignored. In other words, they’re strolling right into the U.S.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Valerie and her son took a walk around this city’s downtown area on Monday after spending three months on a treacherous trek from Brazil, through Central America to Texas.

Valerie, a Congolese woman, fled her war-torn country with her family and is now trying to create a new life here.

“We left the Congo because there weren’t any resources for us…my son has really liked it here. I’ve liked it here, as well. It’s for this reason I’ve come here to figure out my life, to improve my life,” she said in French.

Valerie is one of hundreds of African migrants who arrived in San Antonio last week. City leaders said they weren’t given a heads up and quickly scrambled to accommodate them and quickly recruit several French-speaking volunteers who could serve as translators.
