Lou Dobbs has a few thoughts “on a country changing, certainly the United States is no longer a sanctuary nation, certainly not the one the Bush and Obama administrations tried to create. President Trump’s executive orders and his policies have been influential in cutting illegal immigration by as much as seventy percent over the past two months.”
“And now,” Dobbs points out, “the Trump administration is making preliminary funding for the border wall a top budgetary priority. Mr. Trump tweeted this today, ‘The wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)! If the wall is not built, which it will be, the drug situation will never be fixed the way it should be.”
Dobbs says, “Attorney General Jeff Sessions, pointing to the economic benefits of a secure border.” He plays a clip of Sessions on “This Week” describing the billions of dollars in savings, the reduced drug influx and detention facility occupants. Dobbs says, “And look at some of the devastating costs. Each year Mexican drug cartels $64 billion dollars in profits from the sale of heroin, methamphetamine, and other drugs in this country.”
“Latin American drug cartels now blamed,” says Dobbs, “for the unprecedented 52,000 plus drug overdose deaths in this country during 2015 alone. Escalating threats now from MS-13 gang members crossing into this country, the Trump administration appears likely to designate MS-13 as a trans-national terrorist organization.”
He notes, “There are now thousands of the gang members located in forty states as a result of lax immigration and border enforcement over the past decade. The White House wants $1.5 billion in the new spending bill for the wall,” pointing to the statement by AG Sessions that cleaning up the fraudulent tax over payments to Mexicans would amount to $40 billion over ten years – there’s your wall construction fund.
Dobbs says, “If the Dems are willing to shut down the government to leave our borders open to the drug cartels to smuggle methamphetamines, marijuana, cocaine and heroin, to smuggle hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants into the country, to permit terrorists to cross that border unimpeded, then the Dems are doomed to perpetual irrelevance, in my opinion, and everlasting shame for leaving our great nation defenseless.”
