For nearly 7 years, American citizens have been told by the Obama administration, the left of center liberal media establishment, pro-Illegal Immigration advocates, La Raza, and the elected Leftists and Socialists in Congress, that it is impossible to deport Radical Islamic Terrorists, drug smugglers, human traffickers, convicted Illegal Alien criminal felons, Central American children carrying infectious diseases, Illegal Alien overstays from 50 countries worldwide, and to prevent the annual massive influx of Mexican Illegal Aliens from entering the United States.
The American citizens have been watching the business as usual & the inaction of the leadership in Congress on Illegal Alien Immigration. They are determined to no longer put up with elected politicians who do nothing about the Illegal Alien Immigration; the problems resulting from illegal Immigration have reached crisis proportions, resulting in the establishment of Sanctuary Cities, the expenditure of hundreds of billions of dollars in the cost of welfare/Social Security/food stamps, and in the release of over 116,000 convicted criminal Illegal Mexican Aliens back into the general population by the Obama administration (resulting in hundreds of thousands of American victims being murdered, robbed, burglarized, and flooded with drugs). The leaders of Congress could employ their legislative powers to build the already funded border wall across the wide open southern border, could employ the power of the purse to cut off financial aid to cities, counties, and states that support Sanctuary City policies, and Congress could file criminal charges in US Federal Courts against employees of DHS, including the Secretary, who continue to violate US Federal Immigration Laws—yet they have not.
During the Great Depression when many Americans were unemployed, according to Wikipedia, President Herbert Hoover’s administration, deported between 500,000 to 2 million Illegal Mexican Aliens or they left voluntarily, in order to avoid apprehension for deportation. The actual numbers has been carefully covered up by the Obama administration; the only numbers of deportees found in research was that 121,067 Illegal Mexican Aliens were deported from the US during the depression. The Mexican government cooperated and accepted their retuned nationals.
During and right after World War II it was reported that President Harry Truman ‘s administration deported 3.4 million Illegal Mexican Alien, or they left voluntarily, in order to avoid apprehension for deportation. The Truman administration’s major considerations in deporting Illegal Mexican Aliens was to assist returning military veterans in filling the jobs that Illegal Mexican Aliens had been employed in. The Mexican government cooperated and accepted their retuned nationals.
After the end of the Korean Conflict, the Eisenhower administration executed “Operation Wetback”, a vigorous federally led effort to deport Illegal Mexican Aliens from the United States, and between 1.5 million to 2.1 million Illegal Mexican Aliens were deported, or they left voluntarily, in order to avoid apprehension for deportation. The Eisenhower administration’s major considerations in deporting Illegal Mexican Aliens was to assist returning military veterans in filling the jobs that Illegal Mexican Aliens had been employed in. “Operation Wetback” ended in 1955 when federal funds ran out. The Mexican government cooperated and accepted their retuned nationals.
Today the deportation of Radical Islamic Terrorists, drug smugglers, human traffickers, convicted Illegal Alien criminal felons, Central American children carrying infectious diseases, Illegal Alien overstays from 50 countries worldwide, and Mexican Illegal Aliens cannot be accomplished until the wide open southern border of the United States has been finally closed with the construction of a secure border wall that has been previously funded, in previous passed federal budgets. The leadership of the Congress should take coordinated action in US Federal Courts to enforce US Federal Immigration Laws, by using of the power of the purse to rein in unauthorized illegal DHS immigration actions, and by passing legislation to restrict continued violation of US Federal Laws by the Obama administration. Congress should cancel welfare payments & other benefits provided to Illegal Mexican Alien so they will return to Mexico, it must threaten employees of DHS who are not obeying Federal Immigration Laws with the threat of prosecution and jailed incarceration for gross violations of Federal Immigration Laws, Federal Quarantine Laws, and for their failure to determine if refugees have terrorist ties because they are not completing required background investigations on refugees entering the US through the UN Muslim only Refugee Program.
The 5500 mile long Great Wall of China that is 21 feet high, was built in 476 BC and was effective for over 1700 years. In 1953, the DMZ was created and spans the 160 mile wide Korean peninsula; it has been an effective border wall for 63 years. The 87 mile Berlin Wall was built in 1961 and was a very effective border wall for over 28 years. In 2004, Israel built a 403 mile border wall that is 25 feet high and has been effective at excluding Radical Islamic Terrorists from entering Israel. Saudi Arabia is well on its way to completing a 600 mile Border Wall that has been very effective at excluding Radical Islamic Terrorists from entering the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Now Tukey is building a 500 mile Border Wall to exclude Radical Islamic Terrorists. Yet the leadership in Congress is still not building the previously funded Border Wall across the wide open southern border, in order to exclude Radical Islamic Terrorists from entering the United States.
For nearly 7 years, the will of American people has been intentionally ignored by weak Congressional leaders on both sides of the isle, the left of center liberal media establishment, La Raza, the US Chamber of Commerce, supporters of Illegal Immigration, and by the Obama administration. They collectively continue to allege that an effective border wall across the wide open southern border would not be effective if built. Yet the US has the capability to build an very effective Border Wall across the southern border; it does not have to build a solid border wall across the entire 2000 mile wide open southern border. There are high traffic areas where a border wall must be built, there are other areas where the southern border can be very effectively controlled by employing mobilized national guard troops, drones, and sophisticated sensors, or a combination of one or more of those measures.
Once the wall is built the United States, like every other country in the world, including Mexico, the US can easily work through the process of deporting undesirable Illegal Aliens like Radical Islamic Terrorists, drug smugglers, human traffickers, convicted Illegal Alien criminal felons, Central American children carrying infectious diseases, Illegal Alien overstays from 50 countries worldwide, and Illegal Mexican Aliens. Then an effective process can be developed to arrange for legal entry of Mexican nationals who should have residence, and the issuance of work permits for Mexican nationals who only want to enter the US to be legally employed. As the Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower administration deported 7.5 million Illegal Mexican Aliens, the US today can also deport millions Illegal Mexican Aliens who should not be in the United States, while arranging for others who should be given residence. The professional political class in Washington and the elected leaders in Congress on both sides of the isle should either accomplish the goal of building a Border Wall across the wide open southern border, remove millions of dangerous and undesirable Illegal Aliens from the United States, and arrange for other Mexican nationals to apply for legal residence, or depart from the scene in Washington so competent elected members of Congress can accomplish the goal of enforcing Federal Immigration Laws that every other country in the world enforces on a daily basis.
American voters have been expressing their anger with Washington career politicians because for nearly 7 years, they have watched the effective elimination of the US Federal Immigration Laws, the failure of the US government to enforce & protect the borders of the United States, and watched while one Federal Law after another and the US Constitution has been violated by the Obama administration, with little or no action by the leadership in Congress. As a result, 45 % of Americans from both parties and independents have been flocking to the banner of non-politicians and conservatives who are seeking their party’s nomination to run for the Presidency. Those non-politicians and conservatives, running for president, have tapped into many of the deep seated concerns of American citizens, because year after year, career politicians have continued to promise to take certain action if they were re-elected, then after they were re-elected, they have refused to take the corrective action they promised the voters they would take following their elections. The American voter does not want nor need a professional political class in Congress who continue to lie to their constituents when they are campaigning for office.
The United States is the only nation in the world that doesn’t secure its borders, doesn’t enforce its Federal Immigration Laws, and doesn’t remove foreign violators of US Federal Immigration Laws. Washington DC is a swamp where the overpaid political class continues to ignore the will of the people and the elected Congressional leaders in Congress continue to ignore what American citizens elected them to do, while at the same time, year after year, they continue to allow waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption to fester in the federal bureaucracy. In the coming Congressional session the American voters will once again witness Congressional leaders increase the ceiling of the national debt, instead of, using the power of the purse to cut back the out of control spending by a bloated, inept, and corrupt federal bureaucracy.
“The death of a nation happens with a whisper and a nudge, patiently and steadily, robbing its unsuspecting citizens of inalienable rights and replacing them with government controls……..for the good of the people, of course. Only when it is too late to turn back the clock does a nation realize that freedom has vanished in the blink of an eye.”
