Enough of invaders from Mexico and points south crashing our borders and overburdening our immigration system.
Enough of asking Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador for help in enforcing our immigration laws and stemming the flow of illegals heading to Norteamérica.
Enough of indifferent, lackadaisical Democrats and Republicans refusing to do their jobs and protect our borders but then block the president’s efforts when he tries doing his.
Enough of presidential threats to close the border sometime in the future if the flow of illegals rushing north doesn’t stop soon.
Enough of the immigration madness mess. Here’s a simple 3-point plan to help force immediate action on our southern border.
Close the border – NOW!
Closing the border will get the immediate attention of everyone involved and stress the seriousness of the situation.
Undoubtedly it will cause short term economic pain and incessant whining from different quarters, but that temporary pain and inconvenience will be nothing compared to the long term costs and consequences of housing, supporting, educating and policing hundreds of thousands of people here illegally.
Keep the border closed until…
…Congress works out a feasible, pragmatic immigration solution. Congress grumbles about what the president is proposing and insists immigration policy is their responsibility, so let them take responsibility (for a change) and craft an immigration plan that puts America and its taxpayers first.
If Congress wants open borders, then let them craft a bill saying that and face the voters in 2020.
Petition the Supreme Court for certiorari before judgment
Certiorari before judgment permits the Supreme Court to expedite a case by accepting the case for review before an appellate court has decided it. Our immigration emergency is serious enough to qualify for immediate review by the Supreme Court rather than taking months to weave its way through the legal slalom course of lower courts.
Let federal judges in Hawaii and Washington state who have thwarted Trump’s attempts to address the border emergency issue defend their legal reasoning, and cite legal precedents justifying how un-elected judges forcibly stymied efforts by previous presidents attempting to deal with illegal immigration.
Isn’t it odd that Congress has appropriated millions of dollars in border protection over the years for countries all over the globe, but is unwilling to draft legislation now to defend a porous border in its own homeland?
It’s enough to make you wonder if the drug cartels aren’t the only ones making money off America’s lax immigration security.
Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to all those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country. For those who believe free speech is hate speech, move on – there’s nothing here for you to see.
