Trump deploying token border force to fool conservative supporters


When President Trump said he was deploying the military to our southern border, I thought, "Finally!" Congress has blocked Trump's attempts to build a border wall or hire more border guards, but President Trump has found a unilateral action he can take to finally secure the border!

If only.

It turns out that President Trump is talking about deploying only between 2,000 to 4,000 national guardsmen to the border. That's a tiny token force. How do we know this?

Consider that there are about 18,000 strong Border Patrol agents at our southern border. In light of that, an increase of only about 3,000 is tiny.

Furthermore, it's been tried before.

Past presidents, including George W. Bush and even Barack Obama have sent guardsmen to the border. In "Operation Jumpstart", President Bush sent 6,000 troops to the border--twice as many as our great Presidente is proposing right now!

But even Bush's 6,000 troops were unable to secure the border:

The Administration calls their deployment a success, citing a 24% reduction in illegal entrant arrests during the course of the mission. But what does that 24% reduction really say? Of course no one knows for sure, but up to a million illegal aliens are estimated to infiltrate the U.S. each year across the southern border. So with 6,000 Guardsmen in place, only 760,000 illegal aliens successfully infiltrated the United States.

Let’s review. We deployed the National Guard to secure the southern border against illegal entry. As many as three-quarters of a million unidentified foreign nationals — five times our military deployment in Iraq — got through anyway.

That’s not a success. That’s a colossal failure, unless you count photo ops of the National Guard on the border as the real mission.

[Former Congressman] Norwood’s original call for 36,000 troops to the southern border was researched and published in his 2005 report to the House ImmigrationReform Caucus, “Results and Implications of the Minuteman Project.”

Based on an inspection of volunteer posts and resulting changes in illegal immigration numbers reported by Border Patrol officers in the field during the Minuteman project on the border in April 2005, Norwood reported that an average posting of 18 personnel per mile would virtually end illegal immigration across our southern border.

In comparison, that’s about half the size of the 70,000 troops President Bush ordered out for Hurricane Katrina, and about a third the size of the 100,000 National Guardsmen sent to the border in 1916 by President Wilson to restore order.

So Bush's 6,000 troops couldn't secure the border; but Trump expects to with half that number.

Why doesn't Trump draw on the necessary numbers to secure the border? The troops are there to be drawn on; the President is not limited to calling up troops from border states to guard the southern border. And President Trump certainly has the power to call up 36,000 national guardsmen.

But for some reason, President Trump is only calling up a fraction of the number that President Bush called up.

The only explanation I can think of is that Trump is not serious about securing the border and is taking this action to shore up his political standing with his core supporters.

President Trump is embarrassed that conservative supporters like Anne Coulter have called him out for signing a spending bill which, although funding abortion, Obamacare, and other Democratic priorities, offered him only 33 miles of new fencing, no border wall money, and virtually no money for additional border guards.

This gesture is meant to placate President Trump's low-knowledge supporters who will see the headlines showing President Trump is sending the military to the border but won't be curious enough to find out exactly how many soldiers he is sending.

For me, this is the final proof I need to be convinced that President Trump is not serious about dealing with illegal immigration or securing our southern border.

o The President agreed to end DACA but called on Congress to reinstate it legislatively.

o The President called for amnesty for at least 1.8 million illegal aliens, putting him to the left of Barack Obama.

o The Obama era holdover running ICE is arresting illegals at a somewhat faster pace, but also conducting "show raids" where businesses are warned in advance and arrests are few to none.

o The President signed legislation outlawing his border wall and providing money for only 33 miles of fencing for a 2000 mile border.

And by the way, these guardsmen Trump is calling up? They will be totally unarmed and unable to detain a single illegal without the help of the border patrol. If drug smugglers fire at them they will be helpless to defend themselves. Good thinking, President Trump!

Actions have consequences. And so do elections. Republicans will be demoralized from turning out for the 2018 elections because Congress hasn't moved to secure our borders and the President hasn't fought for it (remember the veto, anyone?). President Trump is positioning himself to be a one term president, by his failure to act in any significant way to secure the border or deal with illegal immigration.

Surge of illegal border crossings corresponds with Trump's mass amnesty offer


There has been a surge of illegal aliens crossing our southern border. A caravan of over 1000 illegals from Central America are trying to enter the country on Easter alone. Breitbart, perhaps one of the strongest supporters of President Trump in the media, finds a direct correlation between the time Trump offered amnesty to 1.8 million illegal aliens and the increasing surge across the border.

Trump's surrender to Dems could cause impeachment, primary challenge


President Trump's decision to sign the spending bill which funds nearly all the Democrat's priorities but gives nothing for border security or reducing domestic spending has disheartened many of his supporters. Even his base on sites like Breitbart are turning against the President, in view of many of the critical comments there. Some people like Ann Coulter think that Trump is depressing his own base, which could reduce GOP turnout in the 2018 Congressional elections and hand the House of Representatives to the Democrats.

Johns Hopkins proudly employs convicted killers


The PBS NewsHour (at the 9 minute mark) last night had an inspiring story about a black church which helped ex-cons get jobs. The program focused on a very sympathetic obese black lady named Cally Thomas. She's soft-spoken, she dresses well, and she even dyed her hair blonde like Beyonce. We're still somewhat sympathetic even after we learned that Cally Thomas is a convicted killer because, as NewsHour assures us, the murder was "domestic violence related", so maybe she won't kill anyone else except boyfriends. But then we learn where Cally has a job; as a janitor at John Hopkins Hospital.
