p4466720163355.png

ㅤ”Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said Saturday that he’s ready to give President Trump his signature border wall if the Republicans will agree to new legal protections for the Dreamers. Furthermore, he said he’d help with the construction.
ㅤ’I’ll take a bucket, take bricks, and start building it myself,’ Gutierrez told reporters in the Capitol. ‘We will dirty our hands in order for the Dreamers to have a clean future in America.’
ㅤThe comments constitute a remarkable concession from the Chicago Democrat, among Capitol Hill’s most vocal immigration reform advocates and fiercest opponents of expanding wall construction at the U.S.-Mexico border.”

OC Sheriff: California’s ‘Sanctuary State’ Bill Is About ‘Sticking it to Trump’

Story at Breitbart, image from blogspot.com.
ㅤ”So this bill would prohibit me as a sheriff from notifying ICE of someone who’s in custody for potential felony driving under the influence, domestic violence, human trafficking, rape of an unconscious person. I would not be able to notify them [ICE]. They would be released to the street. And then what will happen is ICE will go out — they’re not going to let these people go — they’re gonna go out and do search warrants on homes. And then people who are here illegally or undocumented, and have not committed crimes, they’re going to get scooped up too.” — Orange County (OC) Sheriff Sandra Hutchins

[Story at The Daily Caller, image from amazon.com]

ô¿ô
ㅤThis illustrates the problems within the GOP itself. The ideology of some conservatives makes them ignore and corrupt the facts:
ㅤ1) Lawlessness of any kind is public enemy #1.
ㅤ2) They cite disputed theories about drug addiction that can’t be proven.
ㅤ3) It’s likely that heroin use has increased since 1980 because we have not implemented necessary measures to prevent the flow of drugs into the U.S.
ㅤ4) Drug traffickers have continued to grow smarter in bypassing what little effective prevention that currently exists.
ㅤ5) The growth of heroin use and death from overdose has skyrocketed since decriminalization began.
ㅤ6) As tougher immigratation law has slowed the inflow of illegal immigrants, tougher drug enforcement will likely slow the spread of the drug use.
ㅤ7) As nothing else has been truly effective for the last 35 years, law enforcement believes a border wall may be the only cure for America’s opioid epidemic.

To summarize, shut the F’ up and build the border wall !!
