Cartels send Staggering $64B in drugs to US annually

Mexican official: Cartels send $64B in drugs into US annually

President Trump’s proposed border Wall along the southwest border could cost Mexico more than just the price of building it. An official estimated that cartels send a staggering $64 billion worth of drugs into the U.S. every single year.

Mexico’s former Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna dropped the number at a conference in Ciudad Juarez. Luna said drug trafficking organizations have successfully exploited globalization, technology and financial markets to supply America’s appetite for narcotics, according to the Latin American Herald Tribune.

In 2013, Forbes named Luna one of the country’s top 10 most corrupt officials, and he has long been alleged to have ties to Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel.

The Mexican heroin and methamphetamine economy is booming, which is evident in the extraordinary rise of heroin and drug overdoses in the U.S.

Over 99 percent of all marijuana and methamphetamine seized at U.S. borders has come from Mexico, a colossal cache of over 8.2 million pounds since 2013 and a demonstration of the efforts by drug cartels to feed America’s habit.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection seizure figures show that in 2015, 99.8 percent of methamphetamine and 99.9 percent of marijuana seized in the U.S. came from the southern border. Another 61 percent of cocaine seizures were on the West Coast, mostly California, suggesting that Colombian drug cartels are looking for a new route in.

According to a new project from DrugAbuse.com, Border Patrol officers seized a staggering 1.5 million pounds of drugs last year.

The report shows where the drugs have been seized by the Border Patrol. It does not indicate where drugs delivered that eluded capture ended up.

However, it reveals that the Border Patrol has seen tremendous successes in sniffing out drugs.

“Since 2012, the number of traffickers apprehended at U.S. borders has steadily increased from 364,768 to nearly 500,000 in 2014,”

Drug amounts seized at the border from 2012 to 2015 include:

— 8.2 million lbs. of marijuana.

— 32,600 lbs. of cocaine.

— 34,000 ounces of heroin.

— 17,600 lbs. of methamphetamine.

Still, despite the record-high seizures, drug deaths have also surged in the U.S.

According to the DrugAbuse.com report:

Increased drug trafficking in the U.S. has led to an epidemic level of overdoses, surpassing car accidents and firearms as the leading cause of injury and death among Americans. Drug abuse is ending too many lives, too soon.

According to data from the DEA, the number of drug overdoses has climbed more than 50% in the last decade. Death and injury can be traced back to drug-related violence, overdoses from illicit drug use, accidental deaths as a result of drug abuse and injury or death related to smuggling.

While the production of some drugs takes place within our borders, foreign drug trade into the U.S. is largely responsible for the number of dead or injured. Drug abuse has cost the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans, and the government allots billions of dollars each year to counter the growing epidemic.

Building the wall, which President Trump famously said Mexico will pay for, will stop the twin tides of illegal immigrants and deadly drugs.

“Drug smugglers will always get creative and look for new ways to evade law enforcement, but without any kind of infrastructure we’re essentially inviting them to cross the land border either on vehicle or by foot,” Duncan Hunter (R-CA) “In San Diego, the double-fence halted vehicle drug drive throughs—in other words, there haven’t been any.

Hunter said improvements in the fencing and Border Patrol strategies have dropped the smuggling of people and narcotics significantly.

President Trump tied the heroin epidemic gripping suburban white communities to the issue central to the campaign: border security and illegal immigration.

The rate of heroin-related overdoses has nearly quadrupled between 2002 and 2013, with more than 8,200 deaths that year, according to the Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention.

President Trump argues that this too is tied to weak borders.

Southwest Asia supplies heroin to most of the rest of the world, nearly all of the heroin available in the United States comes from Mexico and South America.

“Mexico, and to a lesser extent, Colombia, dominate the U.S. heroin market, because of their proximity, established transportation and distribution infrastructure, and ability to satisfy US heroin demand,” the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration wrote in its National Drug Threat Assessment of 2015.

“Mexico continues as the primary supplier of heroin to the United States,” the White House’s page on the international heroin market reads.

“Estimated cultivation of opium poppy reached 10,500 hectares in 2012, with an estimated pure potential production of 26 metric tons.”

Here’s a chart from the DEA report demonstrating the prevalence of heroin from the southern border:

As you can see, South America and Mexico have been the sources for much of the heroin in U.S. markets for the past two decades.

In recent years, Mexican traffickers have expanded by simultaneously wedging black tar heroin into Northeastern markets dominated by Colombian white powder heroin and increasing production and distribution of white powder heroin themselves.

Mexican heroin accounted for 45 percent of the total weight of heroin the DEA seized and analyzed in 2012 (South American heroin accounted for 51 percent). By 2014, the proportion of Mexican heroin had grown to 79 percent (South American heroin made up about 17 percent), DEA spokesman Russell Baer told PolitiFact.

This market share is also reflected in the amount of heroin seized at the border and the amount grown in Mexico.

From 2013 to 2015, the amount of poppy fields cultivated in Mexico increased by 169 percent from 11,000 hectares to 28,000 hectares, according to Baer.

In 2008, the total amount of heroin seized at the U.S.-Mexico border (about 560 kilograms) surpassed the amount seized from commercial airlines for the first time (about 400 kilograms). Border seizures nearly quadrupled from 2008 to 2015 (2,210 kilograms), according to data provided to us by Baer.

“The majority of the drugs in the U.S. market are trafficked across the Southwest Border from Mexico into the US. Southwest Border seizures conducted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, while not the complete picture, provide insight into trafficking trends,” he said.

Traffickers typically smuggle the drugs in through secret compartments in vehicles across the border (illegally and legally), transport them to stash houses in hub cities like Dallas, Los Angeles and Phoenix, and then distribute to the Midwest and East Coast.

Here’s a map from the Justice Department that shows how heroin moves through the United States:

The vast majority of heroin in the United States comes from Mexico and South America.

Until we erect a real Wall, the War on drugs is just a small band aid as they will just keep pouring in. Call your Congressman today and demand funding for the Wall immediately or sign President Trumps official “Build The Wall” Petition to the US Senate below.


Kid Rock donates his merchandise money to voter registration

Detroit City Cowboy and American Badass, Kid Rock has donated about $122,000 from sales of merchandise from his U.S. Senate campaign to a voter-registration organization.

The Detroit Rockstar Philanthropist, who has been a huge advocate for Michigan and Detroit, teased the public for months. At a September concert, he was introduced as Michigan’s “next senator.” And had a highly successful and supported run up until October, when he confirmed he wasn’t running.

His supporters were happy to see somebody Patriotic, who supported President Trumps America First policies, unlike the radical Dems who hold the Michigan Senate Seats now.

Kid Rock’s publicist, Jay Jones, said in an email to The Detroit News that money raised from political merchandise was sent to CRNC Action, an affiliate of the College Republican National Committee that did voter-registration work last summer at Kid Rock concerts.

Ted Dooley, president of CRNC Action, says the donation was made in December. He says registering voters at the concerts was “pretty much like other voter registration work we do … except a lot more fun.”

The College Republicans will utilize the money to fight the battle against illegal voting and voter registration here in Michigan and across the Country.

DOJ to subpoena 23 jurisdictions over sanctuary city policies

The DOJ on Wednesday threatened to subpoena 23 jurisdictions across the country if they don’t turn over information about their sanctuary city policies toward illegal aliens.

In letters to New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, and other jurisdictions, the Justice Department demanded records relating to whether these localities are “unlawfully restricting information sharing by law enforcement officers with federal immigration authorities.”

“I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law.”

The letters state that jurisdictions that fail to respond will be subject to a DOJ subpoena.

“Sanctuary cities” is a phrase typically used to describe jurisdictions that restrict local law enforcement from sharing information about the immigration status of those in custody with the federal government.

“We have seen too many examples of the threat to public safety represented by jurisdictions that actively thwart the federal government’s immigration enforcement—enough is enough,” Sessions said.

The DOJ letter requests documents “reflecting any orders, directives, instructions, or guidance to your law enforcement employees” about how to “communicate with the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and/or Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

Federal funding could be withheld and the DOJ may demand the return of 2016 federal funding some of the cities have already received if they cannot prove they are complying with Federal Law, Senior DOJ Officials said.

Protesters: “If Chuck won’t let us dream, we won’t let him sleep.”

NEW YORK (AP) – Protesters continue to rally and protest outside Sen. Chuck Schumer’s house in Brooklyn NY to denounce the deal to end the government shutdown without protections for illegal aliens.

About 75 people held signs demanding “Clean Dream Act Now” and “No! Not One More Deportation!” Some chanted “If Chuck won’t let us dream, we won’t let him sleep.”

Senate Democrats – led by Schumer – angered liberal activists and illegals Monday by yielding on GOP demands to reopen the government without an immigration deal to protect from deporting young illegal aliens known as “Dreamers.”

Tuesday’s protest was organized by local groups including Make the Road New York.

Expect Major Tax Hikes in Sanctuary Cities Starting 10/1

You have been warned!

Sanctuary Cities are schedule to lose billions of dollars in federal tax dollars if they continue to ignore, and break federal immigration law.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is gearing up to play a greater role in immigration enforcement.

Sessions recent visit to Nogales, Arizona, was significant because it is at the center of the illegal alien superhighway into Arizona.  The porous Tohono O’odhom Indian Reservation to the west, Tucson is one hour to the north, and the long, flat border that runs over a hundred miles to the east to the New Mexico border, close to the location where U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed in 2010 by smugglers.

He made his case, calling for increased prosecutions of illegal immigrants, pressuring U.S. attorneys to prioritize cases against criminal migrants.

Sessions, a long-time advocate for tougher immigration enforcement, told ICE agents at the Port of Nogales, that more illegal aliens should be prosecuted as criminals.

Sessions made the visit to highlight his focus on enforcing federal immigration laws as dozens of U.S. cities try to shield illegal aliens from stepped-up prosecution and deportation efforts.

“Why are we doing this?” Sessions asked, “Because it is what the duly enacted laws of the United States require.”

Sanctuary Cities that persist in ignoring federal immigration authorities have been told by Sessions that they risk losing federal grant money. Seattle, Washington and its Mayor Ed Murray are suing, calling the Executive Order punishing Sanctuary Cities, unconstitutional.

The Trump administration has threatened to cut off U.S. Justice Department grants to so-called sanctuary cities that fail to assist federal immigration authorities.

Police in such cities have argued that targeting illegal migrants is an improper use of law enforcement resources. Sessions has said a failure to deport aliens convicted of criminal offenses puts whole communities at risk.

Under U.S. law, anyone who harbors or transports an undocumented immigrant, has crossed the border illegally two or more times, resists an immigration officer’s arrest or commits travel document fraud is subject to criminal prosecution.

This drama, with all the feet stomping temper tantrums, is going to play out for the next six months.  The new fiscal year for the federal government begins on October 1, at which time it is expected that federal money to sanctuary cities, counties, states, colleges, etc. will be stopped.

We are talking about Billions of federal tax dollars that will cease to flow to recipients who refuse to help enforce federal immigration law.  And that presents a problem to local government bureaucrats.  Knowing that most bureaucracies are incapable of cutting budgets, the money will have to be found elsewhere, and we know the state and local governments will be looking at the pockets of their taxpayers to make up for the lost federal money.

Expect tax increases to be part of the legislative agenda around the country this year, as elected officials (Democrats) move to fill the substantial gap in their funding when federal money is cut off.

Expect increases in the state income tax, state and local sales tax, gasoline tax, property tax, estate taxes.  Expect bond issues to be suggested to keep the bureaucracy funded, heaping even more debt on future generations.

And with the tax hikes, will come another reality of the result of supporting illegal aliens and thumbing one’s nose at federal law enforcement.

Sanctuary City status will then become more than just an item of debate to most workers, voters,and taxpayers.  When they learn they are paying even more taxes to support illegal aliens, perhaps we will see some pushback against the lawless bureaucrats.

If you happen to be a tax paying citizen living in a sanctuary State or City it would be in your best interest to start calling your congressmen and banning together to fight against these lawless Democrats. Fight to have your voice heard as a legal American Citizen and demand that you be put first before any illegal, or you will soon pay dearly in massive state and local tax hikes.

California AG to persecute American businesses who cooperate with ICE

Woah, woah, woah, let me get this straight! You are threatening “Legal American Citizens and Companies” for following the law, while protecting “illegals who are breaking the law?”…

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra warned employers (Legal American Citizens) of (American Businesses) Thursday of legal repercussions if they assist federal immigration officials in an impending crackdown in the sanctuary state, The Sacramento Bee reported.

Under a new state law – the Immigration Worker Protection Act – employers and businesses could face fines of up to $10,000 if they provide employee information to U.S. Immigration Customs, Becerra said.

If employers “start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office. We will prosecute those who violate the law,” he said at a news conference.

The law prevents workers of any immigration status from being detained at workplaces. Among other stipulations, federal officials must obtain a warrant before searching a worksite and employers are required to notify their workers before a federal audit of employee records.

Becerra said the Department of Justice and the Labor Commission’s office – which hold exclusive authority over enforcement – will give “guidance” to public and private employers on their responsibilities under the new law.

The warning comes amid rumors of mass sweeps that will target illegal immigrants in Northern California. Under California’s sanctuary laws, local police are restricted from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

Upon hearing the rumors, local jurisdictions in Northern California said they hadn’t been notified by federal officials of any impending raids.

ICE’s acting director, Thomas Homan told Fox News earlier this month, “If the politicians in California don’t want to protect their communities, then ICE will.”

New DOJ report says 75% of convicted terrorists in US are foreign born

On Tuesday President Trump cited a new report from the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security revealing that nearly three out of four individuals convicted on international terrorism charges in the U.S. were foreign born and to call for immediate immigration reform.

The DHS and DOJ released the report  to “be more transparent with the American people,” abiding by the guidelines of Trump’s March 6 executive order, Executive Order 13780: Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States Initial Section 11 Report more commonly known as the travel ban.

According to the report, at least 549 people were convicted of international terrorism-related charges in the U.S. between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2016. Of those convicted, 254 were not U.S. citizens, 148 were foreign-born and received citizenship and 147 were citizens by birth.

It also noted that the DHS in 2017 denied U.S. entry to 2,554 people on the terror watch list.

Trump reacted to the report by tweeting: “We have submitted to Congress a list of resources and reforms we need to keep America safe, including moving away from a random chain migration and lottery system, to one that is merit-based.”

The president has made it clear in recent meetings on immigration with lawmakers from both parties that he wants to end the visa lottery program, aimed at increasing immigrant diversity, and chain migration, when immigrants enter the U.S. through sponsorship from family members already settled in the country.

The report also found that from October 1, 2011 to September 30, 355,345 non-U.S. citizens were arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for the purpose of deportation after being convicted of an “aggravated felony” or two or more felony offenses. In addition, 370,098 non-U.S. citizens were deported for the same offenses during that time period.

A senior administration official said Tuesday that the report “is part of the administration’s efforts to illuminate basic statistics that should be at the hands of the American people to inform public discourse on the issue,” The Hill reported.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions reacted to the report on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday.

“We have immigration, we want immigration, but we want to vet these people,” Sessions said. “We want to know who they are and make sure they’re going to be productive people, people who will flourish in America, who are going to not be terrorists, not be criminals and that’s exactly correct for America.”

Sessions added that the U.S. should “tighten up on our admission of people from dangerous areas of the globe, where we can’t vet, where we have high numbers of terrorists that live in those areas. We should certainly be more careful and limit that kind of immigration.”

NJ Gov Plans new Agency for ‘Defensive Protection’ of Illegal Aliens

When former Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy officially takes office on Tuesday as New Jersey’s next governor, he plans to install a tax-payer funded state agency geared toward aiding illegal aliens, the Washington Post reported.

Murphy, a Democrat who held the ambassador post under Obama after several years as a Goldman Sachs executive, said the agency would be called “the Office of Immigrant Defensive Protection”.

Murphy previously vowed to make New Jersey a sanctuary state if President Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“DREAMers… are every bit as American as my four kids,” he said at a debate with outgoing Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R) in Newark.

“We will stand up to this president. If need be, we will be a sanctuary not just city but state. This is America… Mr. President, not in the state of New Jersey,” he said at the time.

Murphy told the Post the new agency will be an office that undocumented immigrants could “call with questions about their status.”

“The rumors that swirl around communities are extraordinary, and it’s literally hard to get, particularly if you’re undocumented, the right answer to your question. That’s when people go back into the shadows,” he said.

Murphy said that he thought the term “sanctuary” had become tainted as a political “buzzword” – saying he preferred the term “welcoming.”

The Post reported Murphy supports offering state identification, driver’s licenses and education-related financial aid to illegal immigrants.

He said he also supports legalizing marijuana and raising the minimum wage, adding that he wants the Garden State to become a “progressive beacon.”

His long-held opposition to the Trump agenda gained him headlines for comparing the New Yorker’s presidency to Germany in the 1920s and opposing the tax reform bill.

Asked why he hasn’t moderated from his left-wing views since his election against outgoing Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) deputy, Murphy responded, “Let me tell you the secret. I believed what I said in the primary.”

The hypocritical History of Mexican immigration Law

Contrary to the beliefs of those on the left, actual facts prove that Mexico’s immigration laws only up until recently, have been historically harsher than that of the United States. And while Mexico’s new immigration laws are quite liberal when compared to their laws of the past, Mexico, ironically, is still deporting mass amounts of illegal Aliens from their soil.

Illegal immigration in Mexico

Illegal immigration has always been a problem in Mexico, especially since the 1970s. Although the number of deportations is declining due to tighter border security, with 61,034 registered cases in 2011, and even less now that President Trump has taken Office. The Mexican government documented over 200,000 illegal border crossings in 2004 and 2005. The largest source of illegal Aliens in Mexico is the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador bordering Mexico to the southeast. In 2014 The Mexican Government said that it would increase enforcement at its southern border where they carried out about 150,000 deportations of unauthorized immigrants from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, a 44% jump over the previous year. These three Central American countries alone accounted for nearly all (97%) of Mexico’s deportations in 2015.

Migration Law of 2011

Prior to May 2011, Mexico’s immigration policy was regulated by the highly strict General Law of Population of 1970, which had been portrayed in hypocritical light when compared to the immigration policies of The United States.

However, on May 24, 2011, President Felipe Calderon signed the new and much more liberal Migration Law. Some of the most significant principles in this new law included new “rights for migrants”. The new law guarantees that foreigners and Mexican nationals will receive equal treatment under Mexican law and decriminalizes undocumented immigration, reducing it to an administrative infraction, punishable with a fine of up to 100 days’ worth of minimum wage. Under this equality principle all immigrants, regardless of status, nationality, or ethnicity, are granted the right to education and healthcare and are entitled to due process.

Although this holds true, we still do not recommend burning a Mexican Flag or beating your chest in protest, screaming and stating in front of the Mexican Capital that you are in fact an illegal like they do here in America. You may come back missing some limbs…

Elements aimed at promoting family unity were also added. Moreover, before the government takes action (deportation) with respect to migrant children and other vulnerable individuals (women, seniors, the handicapped and victims of crime), their specific needs must be prioritized and adequate services must be provided. Illegal Aliens are also granted judicial rights that they were previously denied, such as the right to due process. In addition, the law also calls for establishing a Center for Trust Evaluation and Control which will be charged with the task of training and certifying immigration personnel in hopes of curtailing corrupt practices. All Institute of Migration officials are to meet the same standards as the rest of the country’s security agencies. Government officials found to be violating the law are now subject to penalties, including fines and imprisonment.

General Law of Population

With the Mexican government’s intent to control migration flows and attract foreigners who can contribute to economic development, the new migration law simplifies foreigners’ entrance and residence requirements. First, it replaces the two large immigration categories (immigrant and non-immigrant) with the categories of “visitor” and “temporary resident”. The status of “permanent resident” is maintained. In the General Law of Population the two categories incorporate over 30 different types of foreigners—i.e. distinguished visitor, religious minister, etc.—each with its own stipulations and requirements to qualify for entry and stay. Under the new law the requirements are simplified, basically differentiating those foreigners who are allowed to work and those who are not. The law also expedites the permanent resident application process for retirees and other foreigners. For granting permanent residency, the law proposes using a point system based on factors such as level of education, employment experience, and scientific and technological knowledge. The specifics for the points system were established in the Law’s regulations—Articles 124 to 127 of the Regulations—published on September 28, 2012.

These laws are strikingly similar and are not unlike President Trumps proposed Merit based point system and RAISE Act in the United States that is harshly apposed by the Democrats in DC.

According to Article 81 of the Law and Article 70 of the regulations to the law, immigration officials are the only ones that can conduct immigration procedures although the Federal Police may assist but only under the request and guidance of the Institute of Migration. Verification procedures cannot be conducted in migrant shelters run by civil society organizations or by individuals that engage in providing humanitarian assistance to immigrants.

Texas and Mexico

In the 1820s, some people from the Northern and Eastern United States entered Mexico illegally. Mexico did have legal immigration through empresario contacts. The reason for this was to create a buffer between Mexico and the growing United States. At first they tried to convince Mexicans to move into Texas. However, Texas was dominated by the warlike Comanche Indians. Mexican families did not want to move to Texas and risk their families lives.

Mexico then offered cheap land to Anglos from the United States. These legal immigrants had to agree to live under the Mexican Constitution of 1824. Mexican Texas was bordered by the U.S. frontier areas of Louisiana and Arkansas, had the most settlement by American illegal immigrants.

When Mexico realized that illegal immigration was out of control they attempted to shut it down. Mexican Texas had a population of 3,000 illegal immigrants by 1823; most of those immigrants were from the Southern United States or Appalachia.

By 1825, Mexico and the Coahuila and Texas territory legalized immigration under the condition that settlers convert to Roman Catholicism and not own slaves. However, as the settler population expanded to 7,000 and did not assimilate with Mexican culture, Mexico banned American immigration again in 1830. However, by 1835, American immigration increased to 1,000 per month. Santa Anna did away with the Mexican Constitution of 1824. Many violations under his dictatorship led to tensions and eventually the outbreak of a revolution. Texas became independent from Mexico in 1836.

Foreign relations

In October 2004, the Hechos newscast of TV Azteca reported that the National Institute of Migration (INM) in Mexico raided strip clubs and deport foreigners who worked in such clubs without the proper documentations. In 2004, the INM deported 188,000 people at a cost of US$10 million.


Illegal immigration of Cubans through Cancun tripled from 2004 to 2006.

United States

The Mexican government has been accused of hypocrisy in terms of illegal immigration, criticizing the United States government for its treatment of illegal immigrants whilst their laws have been historically harsher by comparison.


In 2006, Joseph Contreras profiled the issue of Guatemalan immigrants illegally entering Mexico for Newsweek magazine and claimed that while Mexican president Vicente Fox urged that the United Stated grant legal residency to millions of undocumented Mexican immigrants, Mexico had only granted legal status to 15,000 undocumented immigrants. Additionally, Contreras found that at coffee farms in the Mexican state Chiapas, “40,000 Guatemalan field hands endure backbreaking jobs and squalid living conditions to earn roughly US $3.50 a day” and that some farmers “even deduct the cost of room and board from that amount.” The Mexican National Institute of Migration estimated that 400,235 people crossed the Guatemala-Mexico border illegally every year and that around 150,000 of them intended to enter the United States. The illegal immigration from Mexico’s southern neighbors is proving to be a headache for both Mexico and the United States, which has seen an increase in illegal immigration from Central America while Mexican migration has fallen significantly. Most Central Americans in Mexico and the United States hail from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, with a small number from Nicaragua.

Amnesty international indicates that 60% of women “migrants” are sexually assaulted while in transit via Mexico into the United States by the same “migrants” that flood our streets illegally.

Perhaps Mexico should pay more attention to their own laws, History and deportations rather than criticizing and dictating those of other Countries.

5 years ago Democrats supported current Trump policies

Democrats are proving once again that they are indeed the true masters of hypocrisy, double standards and flip-flopping.

Less than 5 years ago, all 54 Democrats in the Democrat-controlled Senate voted to:

• double the length of a new border fence with Mexico

• end the diversity visa lottery

• spend $40 billion on border security

• double the number of border agents to 40,000

• stop family members of U.S. citizens from coming here on reunification visas

• create “merit-based” visas

Before that, in 2006, Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden voted to construct hundreds of miles of fencing along the border. (See: Boston Globe headline: “In 2006, Democrats were saying ‘build that fence!'”)

But terrified of upsetting their militantly-liberal base, Democrats have gone AWOL on the very policies they supported just a few years ago.

Don’t let Democrats forget their long history of supporting many of the same measures President Trump is championing today.
