WASHINGTON: Attorney General Jeff Sessions stopped recusing himself long enough on Monday to finally do his job. In a speech before the National Sheriffs’ Association Annual Conference in New Orleans, he addressed the Trump administration’s decision to abide by immigration laws passed by Congress. Recognizing that Trump’s Zero-Tolerance of America’s open borders may, in some cases, lead to the separation of children from parents entering the U.S. illegally:
“We do not want to separate parents from their children. If we build the wall, if we pass legislation to end the lawlessness, we won’t face these terrible choices.
“We will have a system where those who need to apply for asylum can do so and those who want to come to this country will apply legally.
“The American people are generous people who want our laws enforced. That is what we intend to do, and we ask Congress to be our partners in this effort.”
The bipartisan cabal of open borders
It was an open-borders, bipartisan Congressional cabal that created immigration policies giving immunity from prosecution to illegals crossing the U.S. border with children.
As Sessions noted,
“Word got out about this loophole and the results were predictable: The number of aliens illegally crossing [the border] with children went from 14,000 to 75,000 in just four years.”
At a White House press conference, Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstijen Nielson, noted:
“Since 2013, the United States has admitted more than half a million illegal immigrant minors and family units from Central America, most of whom today are at large in the United States.
“At the same time, large criminal organizations, such as MS-13, have violated our borders and gained a deadly foothold within the United States. This entire crisis, just to be clear, is not new.
“It’s been occurring and expanding over many decades, but currently, it is the exclusive product of loopholes in our federal immigration laws that prevent illegal immigrant minors and family members from being detained and removed to their home countries.
“In other words, these loopholes create a functionally open border. Apprehension, without detention and removal, is not border security.”
Draining the open-borders swamp
Donald Trump’s Zero-Tolerance policy is why he got elected president in 2016. This has set the president and the American people in direct opposition to Republican and Democratic party apparatchiks and their puppet masters in the mainstream media and cheap-labor-seeking big business.
The single greatest issue facing the nation is not North Korean nukes. It’s not the debt ceiling. It is also not trillion-dollar deficits.
It’s whether America remains America or becomes a life raft for the Third World’s failed states. And whether U.S. taxpayers are swamped with the burden of caring for their children.
As a parting middle finger in the face of America’s voting public, retiring GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan attempted to pass a bill granting amnesty to 1.8 million illegals. The measure failed by just two Republican votes.
The good news is that open-borders Republicans are losing their grip on power. Last week, incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) lost his seat to primary challenger Katie Arrington.
As David Hawking at Roll Call observed,
“Sanford has agitated conservatives by questioning the worth of Trump’s border wall… [and] supporting a generous approach to immigrant ‘Dreamers.’”
President Trump described Sanford as “very unhelpful” and “nothing but trouble” on Twitter.
In response to Sanford’s stunning defeat, the Washington Post got it partially right, saying,
“The big takeaway from Sanford’s loss is this: Republican lawmakers who speak out against Trump risk losing their jobs.”
Actually, it is more accurate to say Republican lawmakers who speak out against Trump’s Zero-Tolerance immigration policies are the ones most likely to lose their jobs.
Gimme that new-time religion
And the idea that America may secure its southern border has frightened Democrats into the arms of God – kind of. At the very least, it has led to a new religious movement among the nation’s liberals: the gospel of open borders.
When Trump called the murderous gang MS-13 “animals,” Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was quick to come to their defense. Saying that unlike the president, she and her fellow Democrats see “the spark of divinity” within the tattooed killers.
But Attorney General Jeff Sessions countered Democratic biblical virtue-signaling by quoting Romans 13:
“Obey all the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order.”
Pro-Abortion Democrats quoting Christian scripture about children?
This brought out the open-borders televangelist in MSNBC personality Ali Velshi, a Muslim. Dramatically opening his New Testament, verily Velshi said unto us:
“But Jesus said, ‘Suffer little children and forbid them not, to come unto me: for such is the kingdom of heaven.’”
And the media reached out to its go-to source on matters ecclesiastical, the dower dowager Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton, whose immigration stance in 2016 cost her the election:
“I went to a lot of years of Sunday school. I even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied the Bible, both the Old and the New Testament. And what is being done using the name of religion is contrary to everything I was ever taught.”
It’s odd she never shared her deep and thorough understanding of Biblical truths with her philandering husband Bill or their mutual pal and financial supporter, accused rapist Harvey Weinstein.
A new kind of zero tolerance
But all the aforementioned biblical virtue-signaling among liberals isn’t about moral behavior. It’s about changing the nation’s political demographics. You see, the main tenant of the gospel of open borders is that Americans are not entitled to their own country. And those who believe otherwise must repent.
In response, Americans declared their own zero-tolerance policy on open-borders politicians in 2016.
That is why Donald J. Trump is President of these United States.
