Democrats and NeverTrumpers Sign Letter Opposing Wall Emergency


Apparently having learned nothing from their failed attempts to convince the American public to choose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in 2016, nor anything from their eroding credibility every time they tweet or appear on MSNBC/CNN, a group of “bipartisan” former politicians and intelligence officials released a letter this week condemning President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border.

The use of that word – bipartisan – is meant to evoke some sort of “oh, Trump is really in the wrong this time” kind of feeling in your average voter, but we’re not sure why anyone thought that it would. Trump has been a Party of One since he came on the scene, and everyone is well accustomed by now to seeing a small-but-vocal crowd of useless Republicans criticize his every move.

Let’s look at some of the names on this letter, shall we?

Ah, Madeline Albright, President Clinton’s former secretary of State.

Mmmhmm, John Kelly, President Obama’s chief diplomat and a frequent Trump critic. Oh, and the architect of the disastrous Iran nuclear deal!

John Brennan and James Clapper, the two Obama clowns who allowed their intelligence agencies to be used and abused for the political purpose of bringing Donald Trump, the candidate, down before the election. How’s life without that security clearance, John?

Susan Rice, the Great Unmasker herself!

Hey, we were promised some Republicans. Oh, here we go: John Bellinger, “legal adviser to the U.S. State Department” under the Bush administration. Yeah, really bringing out the heavy hitters. What, you guys didn’t want Bill Kristol’s name sullying your big, important document?

So, the basic point of the letter is to tell Americans that there is no national emergency at the border because, you know, things used to be a lot worse!

“Illegal border crossings are near forty-year lows,” the signatories write. “At the outset, there is no evidence of a sudden or emergency increase in the number of people seeking to cross the southern border. According to the administration’s own data, the number of apprehensions and undetected illegal border crossings at the southern border are near forty-year lows.”

So, two things. One: Exactly how confident are we supposed to be when it comes to estimates of “undetected illegal border crossings?” Sorry, maybe we’re dense, but how exactly are we tracking these border crossings if they are, by definition, going undetected? We’re sure the federal government has a very good, very clever answer to that question, but common sense tells you that no matter how many graphs and figures they throw at the wall, this number is going to be little more than a guess.

Second, what difference does it make that more people used to cross? The very fact that Trump was elected tells you that the American people view illegal immigration as a crisis – an emergency that needs to be addressed immediately. Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do, and he is doing it within the structure of his authority as President of the United States. If we wanted John Kerry’s advice on the matter, we would have put him in the Oval Office.

Build the wall! (And if a few of these signatories accidentally wind up on the wrong side, we won’t cry about it).

What do you think?

  1. So these ignorant fools think they have a future in politics continuing to buck the American people! They continue to believe this is all about Trump! The majority of people in this country want the wall!! They have become anti-constitution, anti-American, Immoral, seditious, obstructionists ,that care nothing about American citizens or the rule of law!! They have sold out to the NWO elitists and the UN’s Agenda 21/30!

    • “The majority of people in this country want the wall!!” <=== YOU may believe this, but it's simply NOT TRUE. There's not a single poll that supports your claim, so it's either a lie or you are deluded by the propaganda poison pill.

        • frisco–You have plenty of insults and nothing of anything else. Bdog is correct polls indicate most people do NOT want Trump’s ugly wall.

      • I guess you missed the part where the Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost, testified to Congress that the situation at the border is indeed an emergency, and the wall is a necessary tool they need in order to do their job. And the amount of citizens that want a wall does outweigh those who do not.

      • You are insane…American people DO WANT THE WALL SICK AND TIRED OF SUPPORTING ALL THESE ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR KIDS! Don’t know what polls you’re looking at probably CNN, MSNBC or ABC you democrat!

      • you are the one who is deluded! All true Americans DO WANT THE WALL, SICK OF ALL THESE ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR KIDS LIVING OFF THE TAXPAYERS OF THIS COUNTRY! When the demorats move you out of your residence because they need room for the illegals don’t say you weren’t warned stupid!

  2. I beg to differ. There is more illegals in this Country than ever before. To the tune of 11 million or more. What no one addresses is the fact that it costs the US Government 100+ billion dollars per year to take care of these people, which is a crisis in itself as we cannot sustain this cost for very long. The other is the funding of these caravans to the US from Central Americas demanding Asylum which they are not asking for in other solvent and safe Countries like Costa Rica or countries in South America. No they all want to come to the US. Why? Because they are getting a free ride and these Caravan’s are being funded by none other than George Soros”s Organizations. This is fact. Crisis in Illegals Crossing, Drugs and Cartels, Gang Members and Criminals and Human Sex Trafficking and also Children who are unaccompanied by adults. Don’t listen to the Democrats on this as they are drunk with power and want these people used as pawns and for votes to defeat President Trump’s Policies which is safety of American Citizens and Legal Immigrants.

  3. He had TWO YEARS with control of the House and Senate and hasn’t built a thing. NOW…. SUDDENLY… it’s an emergency? The true emergency his Trump’s residency in the White House… dozens of indictments, guilty pleas, prison sentences, witness tampering, obstruction, probable campaign law violations, not to mention covering for an enemy who hacked and impacted the 2016 election…. or how about blessing the murder of a reporter, ordered by Saudi Crown Prince MBS…. perhaps to protect their longstanding business interests… or worse.

    Just the smallest light has been shed on these cockroaches…. and look how many have been caught already. But… go ahead and keep covering for their corruption. Seems traitor-ish to me!

    • You full of it….Nothing has been proven about Trump….So he had a few lawyers that went wild after the election…..What about Clintons, the Obamas, Kerry, and on on ….We haven’t had so good…..No killing of people that would have told on the Clintons…36 as of three weeks ago…You don’t like Trump because your swamp is getting dry….You can’t help following people that aren’t going any where ( Jail) Maybe if you look real close at the Demos, you may find that nasty taste in your mouth is donkey turds……from following to close to the Jackasses…..DNC was the first to ask the enemy for help to defeat Trump but you don’e think that’s true….HA!….

    • You and all democrats should be prosecuted for “treason”! None of you are worth the air you breath! We have over 22 million illegal aliens along with over 800,000 visa overstays! From October 2018 til February 2019 there have been over 100,000 illegals crossing into our country! Demorats ARE THE COCKROACHS! STUPID PERSON DOESN’T KNOW SHIT! Go to CNN, ABC, NBC or MSNBC where you are welcomed! We don’t want any traitors on this site!

  4. A must read this will shock you.

    Why Build the Wall?

    California Teacher Explains Why We MUST Build The Wall!

    THIS WAS WRITTEN BY A SCHOOL TEACHER/DEPT. MANAGER IN THE CALIFORNIA SCHOOL SYSTEM. SHE HAS TO DEAL WITH THESE PROBLEMS EVERY DAY.

    THIS ENGLISH TEACHER HAS PHRASED IT THE BEST I’VE SEEN YET.

    THIS SHOULD MAKE EVERYONE THINK, BE YOU DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN OR INDEPENDENT.

    FROM A CALIFORNIA SCHOOL TEACHER – – –

    “As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of:

    I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large Southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels.

    Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park , etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools.

    Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program.. When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking a glass of milk and a roll — but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make the Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten.

    (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!)

    I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids.

    (MORE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!)

    I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later
    , have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America.

    (MORE AND MORE OF OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK!)

    I have had to intervene several times for young substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them putas (whores) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

    Free medical, free education, free food, day care, etc., etc., etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

    To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.

    Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc., etc. For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes.

    Americans, We need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won’t have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?

    It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15, and that refuses to assimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about “political correctness” that we don’t have the will to do anything about it.

    If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know including your Congressman and Senators.

    CHEAP LABOR? ISN’T THAT WHAT THE WHOLE IMMIGRATION ISSUE IS ABOUT?

    BUSINESS DOESN’T WANT TO PAY A DECENT WAGE.

    CONSUMERS DON’T WANT EXPENSIVE PRODUCE.

    GOVERNMENT WILL TELL YOU AMERICANS DON’T WANT THE JOBS.

    But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.”

    * Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return, he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.

    ALSO….

    HE QUALIFIES FOR SECTION 8 HOUSING AND SUBSIDIZED RENT.

    HE QUALIFIES FOR FOOD STAMPS.

    HE QUALIFIES FOR FREE (NO DEDUCTIBLE, NO CO-PAY) HEALTH CARE.

    HIS CHILDREN GET FREE BREAKFASTS AND LUNCHES AT SCHOOL.

    HE REQUIRES BILINGUAL TEACHERS AND BOOKS

    HE QUALIFIES FOR RELIEF FROM HIGH ENERGY BILLS.

    IF THEY ARE OR BECOME AGED, BLIND OR DISABLED, THEY QUALIFY FOR SSI.

    ONCE QUALIFIED FOR SSI THEY CAN QUALIFY FOR MEDICARE. ALL OF THIS IS AT TAXPAYER’S (OUR) EXPENSE.

    HE DOESN’T WORRY ABOUT CAR INSURANCE, LIFE INSURANCE, OR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE.

    TAXPAYERS PROVIDE SPANISH LANGUAGE SIGNS, BULLETINS AND PRINTED MATERIAL.

    HE AND HIS FAMILY RECEIVE THE EQUIVALENT OF $20.00 TO $30.00/HOUR IN BENEFITS.

    WORKING AMERICANS ARE LUCKY TO HAVE $5.00 OR $6.00/HOUR LEFT AFTER PAYING THEIR BILLS AND HIS.

    THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS ALSO PAY FOR INCREASED CRIME, GRAFFITI AND TRASH CLEAN-UP.

    CHEAP LABOR? YEAH RIGHT! WAKE UP PEOPLE!

    THIS HAS GOT TO BE PASSED ALONG TO AS MANY AS POSSIBLE OR WE WILL ALL GO DOWN THE DRAIN BECAUSE A FEW DON’T CARE.

    Any American that is against the wall is against his fellow American

    THIS WILL BE PASSED ON ONLY BY AMERICANS WHO TRULY CARE. Vote Republican.

  5. Know who the enemy is… THERE IS A THIRD PARTY…..R and D mean nothing…….The treason comes from within. A third of all elected favor all the Vatican, not the USA…Half of them call themselves r, half d. ALL C-AT-HOLICS are traitors.
    TREASON! Pelosi, Ryan, Murkowski, McConnell , and a third of all elected support all the hundred failures south of the USA. This is TREASON. A hundred nations, a thousand years and exactly 100% failure….. A vote for ANY of the CATHOLIC treasonous folks is not wise. Vote for ANY CATHOL1C and the wall will never be built.

  6. Democrats are nothing but Communist anymore. Screw every democrat on the planet. You are traitors to this country. Build the damn wall and remove the scum. I don’t owe them anything.

  7. Are the Dumbocrat/Socialists (Not Patriotic Democrats) so “STUPID” as to think there is no evidence of a sudden or emergency increase in the number of people seeking to cross the southern border.? What about the Illegal Caravans? Was that some sort of staged propaganda ??? I am constantly amazed at just what type of “CRAP” those Anti-Americans think the American Patriots both Republican and Democrats will buy into !!!

  8. If this is also passed in the Senate President Trump will veto it.
    *
    What the progressive socialist democrats are doing is putting up a huge sign that says;
    *
    WELCOME TO ALL WHO COME TO OUR COUNTRY WE ARE READY TO PROVIDE YOU WITH;
    *
    JOBS;
    *
    FREE HEALTH CARE;
    *
    FREE EDICATION;
    *
    FREE HOUSING;
    *
    FREE; FREE; FREE; COME & GET IT THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS WILL PAY FOR EVERYTHING

    • You can skip the jobs. The caravans that have been coming to the border, said they wanted all the free stuff Americans get, and they don’t want to work for it. One man interviewed said he wanted to be given money. He said we aren’t looking for jobs. Some of them said they would go elsewhere, if we gave each of them $50,000. Illegals are bleeding the taxpayers dry. They are responsible for a large portion of all crimes committed in the US.

  9. The walll NEEDS to be built to keep these leeches OUT!! Once the wall is up, start deporting the 20+M illegals. Their assets should be confiscated, deduct the cost to have them deported and use any remaing funds to hire MORE ICE agents!!!!!!!

  10. What few people, including the clowns who signed the letter, realize is that the damage caused by illegal immigration is cumulative. Therefore, the number who enter in any given year, which may fluctuate from year-to-year, is not the important metric it is the total number that arrive over an extended period. The estimated number of illegal aliens in the US now numbers anywhere between 12 million and 30+ million. It is also estimated that about 70 % are on some form of public assistance with estimates of cost to the taxpayers over taxes paid by the aliens ranging from $10,000 to more than $30,000 per year. The total cost to the taxpayer is then $120 billion to $300 billion at the low end to trillions at the high end. That’s essentially the deficit and these signatories claim we don’t have a crisis. The country is literately being bankrupted because misguided souls believe that we must save the poor of the world. I can guarantee the signatories that their children and grand children will not thank them 50 years from now.

  11. I cannot believe the ignorance of these people. I say they should ALL be charged with accessory to ANY crimes illegals commit and for any drug deaths. I am so sick of these politicians that DO NOT abide by the wishes of the American people and only act to serve their own agenda.

  12. THERE MOST DEFINITELY IS AN *EMERGENCY* > WITHIN THE *DEM* ! WITHOUT *ILLEGALS* VOTING (unlawful votes) FOR *SLAVE MASTERS* HAND OUTS > *DEMS* PARTY DIES A SLOW DEATH!
