Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured

…but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. And now, any of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens. –Ben Stein.

How Eisenhower solved illegal border crossings from Mexico

George W. Bush isn’t the first Republican president to face a full-blown immigration crisis on the US-Mexican border.

Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America’s southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond.

President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today’s force. The operation is still highly praised among veterans of the Border Patrol.

Underreported: How Building a Border Wall Changed San Diego

The law already allows Donald Trump to build the wall

There’s no shortage of people telling Donald Trump he can’t build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. And maybe, in the end, he won’t do it. But at the moment Trump takes office, he will have the legal authority and the money he needs to get started on the wall. Yes, there will be obstacles — what’s the over/under on the number of lawsuits that will be filed trying to stop it? — but the fact is, the law is already in place that will allow Trump to go forward.

As in other areas of immigration enforcement, Trump will be able to effect radical change simply by following the law. In this case, it is the Secure Fence Act, passed in 2006 with bipartisan support — 283 votes in the House and 80 in the Senate, including then-Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Mexico wants a wall — and is willing to pay for it

Some Mexicans are demanding their government build a wall to stop illegal immigration.

Into their country.

Despite having tough immigration laws, Mexico finds itself under siege by an invasion of refugees seeking to flee the violence in Central America. Some of them want to get to the United States.

From the Daily Mail:

–SNIP–

The US has sent $75 million for equipment and training to Mexico to help with the crackdown on immigrants, according to the Times.

Typical of our idiot president to worry about protecting someone else’s border instead of our own.

Expert: Amnesty, illegal immigration, hits black wages hardest

Decades of illegal immigration have set back the economic fortunes of African American men, robbing jobs and wages and even playing a role in low marriage rates and putting more blacks in jail, according to a commissioner with the U.S. Civil Rights Commission.

“Illegal immigration has a disproportionately negative effect on the wages and employment levels of blacks, particularly black males,” said Peter N. Kirsanow.

20 Examples of What Liberalism REALLY Is

1) Liberalism is college professors and documentary filmmakers accumulating vast fortunes in a capitalistic system by decrying the evils of capitalism.

2) Liberalism is claiming that the “border is secure” while saying we shouldn’t deport anyone who illegally crosses the border.

3) Liberalism is “environmental activists” flying across the world to ride together in SUVs to posh environmental conferences where they call for everyone else to live like cavemen in order to save the planet.

4) Liberalism is spewing hatred and profanity at conservative women, calling for gun control that leaves women defenseless against rapists and murderers, and celebrating misogynistic pigs like Bill Clinton while accusing OTHER PEOPLE of being engaged in a “war on women.”
