ㅤ”President Trump will soon sign an order to deploy National Guard troops to the United States’ southern border, Kirstjen Nielsen announced Wednesday.
ㅤSpeaking at the White House, Nielsen framed the move as a way to toughen an immigration system that ‘rewards bad behavior,’ including illegal drug smuggling and border crossings.
ㅤ’Border security is homeland security, which is national security,’ Nielsen told reporters. ‘It’s not a partisan issue.’
ㅤIt remains unclear how many troops will be sent to the border, how long they will be deployed and how much the operation will cost.
ㅤ’It will be strong. It will be as many as needed to fill the gaps we have today,’ Nielsen said when asked about troop numbers. ‘We do hope the deployment will begin immediately.’
ㅤ’National Guard troops will serve in a support role and will not actively detain or handle migrants who cross the border illegally, Nielsen said.'”

Omnibus to include $641M in funding for non-concrete border barrier

OMNIBUS TO INCLUDE $641M IN FUNDING FOR NON-CONCRETE BORDER BARRIERp21article100209wp.png

ㅤô¿ô …Pathetic. The President should veto this bill. It’s a total waste of tax-payer dollars. Congress is throwing money at opioid addiction treatment and research, neither of which has ever worked. They’re only funding border fencing, which has never worked. It would be better if Congress did nothing rather than waste my money on horse manure.

Exclusive: GOP Leadership Is Going To Fund Sanctuary Cities

EXCLUSIVE: GOP LEADERSHIP IS GOING TO FUND SANCTUARY CITIESp16article120906wp.jpg

ㅤ”Republican leadership is going to fund sanctuary cities in the must-pass spending bill next week, giving Democrats a huge victory while simultaneously undercutting conservatives who put them in power, a senior GOP aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
ㅤ’House and Senate leadership has rolled over and played dead on border security. When it comes to a border wall, they say it is not our problem. When it comes to funding sanctuary cities, they say it is not our problem. What they are essentially saying is we are going to pass bills with more Democrats than Republicans,’ the aide told TheDCNF. ‘This is a sign to administration that leadership doesn’t care what the White House wants. Even though GOP members ran on these issues. Conservatives mean it. The administration means it.'”

White House says no temporary deal linking DACA with border wall funding

WHITE HOUSE SAYS NO TEMPORARY DEAL LINKING DACA WITH BORDER WALL FUNDINGp14article152350wp.jpg

ㅤ”‘The White House opposes a so-called three for three deal,’ said White House spokesman Raj Shah.
ㅤHe said as a result of a recent agreement in Congress to lift spending caps, ‘the routine appropriations process should yield wall funding in’ an overall spending bill under negotiation.
ㅤ’Securing the border is one of the most vital functions of government and is a core part of any routine funding bill,’ Mr. Shah said in a statement. ‘Separately, we have never stopped working to negotiate an immigration reform package that addresses DACA, stops illegal immigration and secures and modernizes our legal immigration system.'”

ㅤ”Now, the Trump administration can continue waiving environmental regulations to build the border wall.
ㅤThe Justice Department praised the ruling: ‘Border security is paramount to stemming the flow of illegal immigration that contributes to rising violent crime and to the drug crisis, and undermines national security,’ said department spokesman Devin O’Malley. ‘Congress gave authority to the Department of Homeland Security to construct a border wall without delay to prevent illegal entry into the United States, and we are pleased DHS can continue this important work vital to our nation’s interests.'”

Texas GOP lawmaker: Trump wall ‘expensive and least effective’ security plan

TEXAS GOP LAWMAKER: TRUMP WALL ‘EXPENSIVE AND LEAST EFFECTIVE’ SECURITY PLANㅤp10123135.png
Pictured: Texas Republican Rep. Will Hurd

ㅤ”Hurd, whose multi-ethnic swing district includes 820 miles of rugged terrain along the border with Mexico, is the co-sponsor with Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) of the USA Act, which promotes ‘smart’ technology at the border instead of a physical wall, and permanent legal status for DACA recipients.
ㅤ’This is the only legislation that has real bipartisan support in the House and the Senate,’ Hurd said during an interview.
ㅤStill, enactment is a long shot. Hurd argued that fixing DACA before March will requires a narrowly tailored bill with bipartisan support. The prospect of cutting off family-based immigration and the diversity visa lottery — among Trump’s immigration demands — ‘introduces more complications’ in both chambers in Congress, he added.”

ㅤô¿ô …Hurd is defending Mexico’s invasion of the United States and is not concerned about the 100-lane super highway for drugs coming across the our border with Mexico.
ㅤDrug addiction is growing exponentially. We should try EVERYTHING that may help America win the war on drugs. Build the wall !!
