President Trump blamed Obama’s weak immigration laws at the border, known as “catch and release,” which, instead of deporting illegal aliens, allowed them to be released into the US while they await a court hearing. Trump says that the border will be guarded by the US military until the wall is built. He threatened Mexico with pulling out of NAFTA [which he should do anyway], and Mexico says it will support him. Tucker Carlson says this promise cannot be trusted.
PM Netanyahu said that the electrified fence along its border with Egypt is necessary to ward off African migrants who are a greater threat than Islamic terrorists. Why? His answer is that they threaten the Jewish state’s national character. [Control over immigration is a right of national sovereignty just as much as we have the personal right to keep strangers out of our homes. Europe and America would do well to pay closer attention to this concept.]
San Diego: A reporter covering prototypes of Trump’s proposed border wall unexpectedly caught a group of illegal border jumpers hopping over the existing fence. The Border Patrol agent being interviewed says it’s just another day at work fighting the never-ending battle to secure the nation’s southern border.
