The President has been wholly lambasted by the liberal media in recent years, with their campaign against him starting long before his time in office.
On the campaign trail, Donald Trump explained, as only Donald Trump can, that Mexico’s best and brightest may not be the only segment of the population that we are unknowingly receiving over our southern border. The soon-to-be President said, rather bluntly, that there may be some drugs coming over the border as well – a claim that had the liberal media running to their thesaurus, trying to discover archaic synonyms for “bigot” before their competition would.
Of course, there is only one way to refute the mainstream media: Facts.
The crime rate among illegal immigrants in Arizona is twice that of other residents, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday, citing a new report based on conviction data.
The report, from the Crime Prevention Research Center, used a previously untapped set of data from Arizona that detailed criminal convictions and found that illegal immigrants between 15 and 35 are less than 3 percent of the state’s population, but nearly 8 percent of its prison population.
And the crimes they were convicted of were, on the whole, more serious, said John R. Lott Jr., the report’s author and president of the research center.His findings also challenge the general narrative that immigrants commit fewer crimes. Those past studies usually don’t look at legal versus illegal populations, Mr. Lott said.
Candidate Trump, and now President Trump, have both been adamant about their support for a physical barrier on the border. A “big, beautiful wall”, if you will.
Of course, the democratic liberals in congress, and in the courts, weren’t about to let that happen. Thanks to these “resistance” rats clogging up our political sewer system, the wall has still not been built or funded – even after prototypes have been inspected by the Commander in Chief.
Fed up with this inaction in Washington, President Trump has taken immediate action on the matter.
The Trump administration announced Wednesday that President Trump will sign a proclamation to send the National Guard to the southern border immediately in response to what it described as an “unacceptable” flow of drugs, criminal activity and illegal immigrants.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at the White House press briefing that it would be done in conjunction with governors and that the administration hopes the deployment begins “immediately.”
“Despite a number of steps this administration has taken…we continue to see unacceptable levels of illegal drugs, dangerous gang activity transnational criminal organizations and illegal immigration flow across our border,” she said.
“The president has directed that the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security work together with our governors to deploy our National Guard to our southwest border to assist the border patrol,” she said. “The president will be signing a proclamation to that effect today.”
We can only imagine that more than a few social justice warriors will melt their cellphones this evening as they chain-tweet about how “racist” our President is.
Oh, and should you, dear reader, be accosted by such a Twitter troll, feel free to remind them that #ObamaDidItToo.
