Our immigration control agencies have once again become plagued by Obama’s still-functioning cadre of globalists.
Indeed, the Washington Times reports shocking news that the Trump administration has reinstated a de facto catch-and-release policy for illegal aliens nabbed crossing the border in Texas, with Border Patrol agents being told Wednesday not to even bother turning the captured aliens over for speedy deportation.
Why is this happening: Congress is dragging its feet on enacting and approving measures and steps to protect America.
Mr. Trump on Tuesday nominated Tom Homan, who had been serving as acting director of ICE, to hold the position permanently.
Kevin McAleenan was nominated months ago and is awaiting action by the Senate and due to this inaction has been forced to assume an interim acting role.
Both men have earned praise from those who want stricter enforcement of immigration laws. But Congress does nothing.
“The moment we start releasing them out our front door, you’re going to see a huge increase take place in the numbers coming across,” said Brandon Judd, an agent and president of the National Border Patrol Council.
Mr. Judd told the Times that the early rhetoric from the president was good and had an immediate effect earlier this year in persuading migrants not to bother making the journey north.
In fact, the Border Patrol set a modern-day record low of slightly more than 11,100 illegal immigrants nabbed in April.
But as catch-and-release continued, word seeped back to Mexico and the effects of Mr. Trump’s rhetoric waned. More than 26,000 aliens were arrested at the border in October, Mr. Judd said.
“The word got back to all of these countries that hey, the catch-and-release hasn’t ended,” he said. “The people that are supposed to be enforcing President Trump’s policy, they’re just not. They’re not following through on the promises he made.”
Why is this happening?
Chris Crane, the president of the National ICE Council, which represents deportation officers in a letter to Mr. Trump this week, first reported by The Washington Times, stated that the president’s top lieutenants were preventing the President from hearing what is really going on.
“While officers view the President’s position on enforcement as courageous, the Trump administration has left all of the Obama managers and leadership in place, a group that ICE Officers know after the last eight years to be completely incompetent, corrupt and anti-enforcement,” Mr. Crane wrote.
In my humble opinion results such as leaving Obama’s henchmen in control of immigration was the exact desired result of tying up the entire federal government with false claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The major players on Trump’s team – and indeed, even The Donald himself – are scurrying around from meeting-to-meeting, lawyer-to-lawyer in an effort to extricate themselves from clutches of public opinion that Trump’s administration has allowed to be shaped by the Democrat #FALSENEWS machine
American voters must stand and insist that the Republican-controlled Congress focus its attention on the Border and divert some of the billions now wantonly wasted in foreign aid payments to countries that hate America to build our own infra-structure of humane housing for the captured alien invaders.
Today, the shortfall of intelligent pro-America spending campaigns is coming to the front, to every city and neighborhood surrounding America. We cannot pay countries like Communist China and Pakistan and India – all of which are able to maintain their own governments even while depriving America of needed infrastructure with the result that American shores are once again the war prize being won by the Democrat’s objective of unlimited illegal invasion.
