Turncoats. The twelve Republican Senators that voted in favor of the Democrat resolution to overturn President Trump’s declaration of national emergency at the United States – Mexico border are turncoats. They have betrayed our country and deserve to be defeated when next they face the ballot box.
President Trump, surrounded by all manner of law enforcement agents and Angel Moms, VETOED the resolution about as fast as he could get a pen in hand.
The excuse the now infamous 12 Republicans give for their vote is they had “Constitutional issues” with President Trump declaring a national emergency.They say they believe this is a case of presidential over-reach. Interesting they had no problem with President Barack Hussein Obama’s 12 National Emergencies, 10 of which remain active. President Bush Jr declared 13 and President Clinton 17. No problem.
The power to declare a national emergency was codified into law by Congress in 1976 as the National Emergencies Act. Some 59 national emergencies have been declare, more than 30 of which remain in effect. It is crystal clear under the law President Trump has the power to declare a national emergency to protect our southern border.
We are seeing hypocrisy at its worst. This country is being threatened with mass migration from Mexico, Central & South America, and many other countries. Tens of thousands of illegal aliens are flooding our country. Listen to those who defend the border: the Border Patrol and ICE. They are clear about the need for a border wall, more technology, more boots-on-the-ground and the need for immigration law reform. Congress does not listen nor act. Congress is allowing an almost open flow of illegal aliens including criminals, human traffickers, and terrorists. They are allowing a flood of illegal and dangerous drugs into the United States. And how about the diseases. Border officials are seeing such as malaria, dengue, hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, leprosy, and parasites.
Who are the turncoat twelve? They are Senators Susan Collins (ME), Rob Portman (OH), Lamar Alexander (TN), Roy Blunt (MO), Mike Lee (UT), Jerry Moran (KS), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), Mitt Romney (UT), Marco Rubio (FL), Patrick Toomey (PA) and Roger Wicker (MS).
It is undeniable that great profits flow from illegal activity at our southern border. It is suspected politicians are among those profiting. If you will remember, El Chapo, the Mexican drug king now under federal trial, blurted out the names of several politicians guilty of corruption before he was silenced. This possibility is not surprising given the shocking level of corruption we have seen in the FBI and Department of Justice. Careful scrutiny is called for. In addition, it is estimated over $50 billion are sent out of the United States each year back to illegal alien countries of origin.
Collins along with Murkowski have frequently been unclear as to whether they are Republicans or Democrats. Rand Paul is Rand Paul. Romney is a “NEVER-Trumper” and creepy. The other Utah Senator, Lee, makes it 100% out-of-step for Utah. Trump’s nickname for Rubio is a well deserved “lightweight choker”. Several of the others are of the RINOs or “NEVER-Trumpers”. Susan Collins is up for election in 2020. We wish her “bye-bye” and happy retirement.
Congressional leaders from both parties are pathetic. They are putting the country at incredible risk. Our immigration laws need to be changed to eliminate anchor babies, chain migration and lottery migration. They need to be changed to institute e-Verify, end VISA overstays, and promote immigration based upon merit. They need to be changed to allow the immediate deportation of illegals; not permit endless legal maneuvering.
We do not need more un-educated, non-English speaking, un-skilled immigrants that arrive in the country expecting to be supported with money, social services, free medical care, education, and more. Any resources available need to be for US citizens, not illegal aliens who have decided it is their right to storm our borders.
The infamous 12 should be ashamed of themselves. Let the flood of illegal immigrants reside with them in their gated communities. Let them take responsibilities they are so eager to shove off on American citizens. And for the Democrats – House and Senate – no words are adequate to describe their treachery. Maybe it will take a terrorist attack by illegal aliens or the release of some biological disease to get Congresses attention.
President Trump is the one taking care of the United States of America.
