President Trump has been a busy man the past few days after launching an all-out shock and awe strategy to policy initiatives, with today’s focus being on national security.
A major part of national security is having a secure border, and during his press briefing earlier today, Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the president will be signing two major executive orders to help shore up our southern border. The Daily Caller reported President Trump will be keeping his promise to build a border wall as well as giving the Department of Homeland Security and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement the necessary resources to keep our nation safe.
The first order will focus on building the wall along the Mexican border along with expanding resources for the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Spicer said the wall was “more than a campaign promise” and “common sense first step to securing border.”
“One way or another, Mexico will pay for it,” Spicer said.
The press secretary also said the administration is “creating more detention space for immigrants along southern border” and will end the “dangerous catch and release policy.” Spicer said the first executive order will “prioritize prosecution and deportation of immigrants who have broken American laws.”
Spicer said such illegals will be getting “one-way tickets” back to their countries of origin. He then explained that the second executive order will do what many Americans have begged the federal government to do for quite some time – strip sanctuary cities of their federal funding.
“Federal agencies will unapologetically enforce law,” Spicer said. “No ifs, ands or butts. Americans will no longer have to subsidize this.”
Boom! Shock and awe.
It’s about time we have a president focused on national security and actually enforcing our laws, but you know damn well Democrats aren’t going to be too happy about it. After all, they’ve been relying on illegal immigration to boost the number of electoral votes in their states as well as import new voters, and Trump is about to completely close off that spigot, to which I say, “oh well.”
If you weren’t relying on lawlessness for support, you wouldn’t have to worry about losing it if the law is enforced.
