One of the fact of life is that humans generally ignore problems until they become bigger or too big to ignore any longer. A slow drip from the kitchen faucet may be ignored for days or weeks before it gets fixed. A few rabbits hopping around the neighborhood are cute until they start digging holes under your home or eating all the plants in your garden. This weakness in humans tends to be worse in governments.
The situation with North Korea is one such problem. Previous Presidents of the United States did their best to ignore the threats coming out of North Korea or to appease the leader of the rogue state. The threats kept getting worse until Donald Trump became the President. He labeled the dictator – Rocket Man – and isolated him using tactics straight out of Sal Alinsky’s book. When the Rocket Man threatened to hit the United States with rockets, Trump simply said, “My red button is bigger than yours!” Rocket Man did not back down until he came face to face with a leader that would not put up with his tactics any longer.
Another such situation is the southern border of the United States. Illegal aliens have been entering the United States for dozens of years, and several Presidents from Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama talked about securing the border but took little action. The illegal immigrants kept coming, and the numbers have swollen. Finally, we elect a President who is willing to build a barrier to protect the southern border, but Congress fights against it.
We need a strong barrier to stop the hordes of people pouring over our border and to protect our nation and people. There are thousands of people entering our nation every single day who should not be here, and they are committing all kinds of crimes including murder. Democrats do not want to fund a barrier because it would give Trump a win as well as stop potential future Democrat voters.
Things are so bad on the border mow that even Jeh Johnson, former chief of the Department of Homeland Security under Barack Obama, says there is a crisis. In an appearance on MSNBC, Johnson said that the situation now is worse than anything he saw.
My staff would tell you, if [there] were under 1,000 apprehensions the day before, that was a relatively good number. And if it was over 1,000, it was a relatively bad number and I was going to be in a bad mood the whole day.
On Tuesday, there were 4,000 apprehensions. I know that a thousand overwhelms a system; I can’t imagine what 4,000 a day looks like. So, we are truly in a crisis.
Johnson was interviewed by Fox News and said about the same thing. “By anyone’s definition, by any measure, right now we have a crisis at our southern border.” Most Democrats still do not care and consider it a win-win situation for them either way. They can either show that Trump is not capable of keeping Americans safe, or they get thousands or millions more potential voters. They are so drunk on power that they do not care about America or Americans.
Our nation is being invaded, and our President has been trying to get a barrier to stop the hordes. Democrats have fought him every step of the way because a border wall would be bad for the Democrat Party. They need as many illegal aliens here as possible even though there are already upwards of 22 million illegal aliens in the United States. If this river of immigrants continues, it is estimated that 1.5 million more will enter our nation this year.
Illegal immigration is now at the crisis level, and Democrats never allow a good crisis to go to waste! We should have taken care of the immigration problem when it was just a trickle and never allowed it to become this raging river of illegal immigration. The do-nothing Democrats have caused this crisis, and it is time to vote all of them out of office in 2020!
