Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders has announced his resignation, effective July 5. The situation at the border is deteriorating and the man in charge is about to abandon ship. Conditions at border facilities have taken over the news cycle after Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) likened the facilities to Nazi concentration camps.
This entire situation goes away if Dems give Trump the humanitarian aid package he requested, but they refuse to give in. Instead of passing clean legislation, the Dems loaded it up with poison pills to block border wall funding as well as enforcing certain immigration laws.
Meanwhile, children in border detention facilities are struggling without many basic necessities. The media, meanwhile, is eating it all up and helping the Dems blame Trump when it is their fault for not passing legislation to provide aid to the children they claim they care about. This is also a pure Saul Alinsky tactic.
When more pictures surfaced showing horrific conditions where children were being held, the pressure became too much for Sanders. As rumors of his dismissal started to surface, he beat them all to the punch and sent a resignation letter to President Trump. To be clear, Trump did not ask Sanders to resign. Sanders is leaving because he is being prevented from doing his job and he does not want to be the scapegoat for the Democrat party.
In an effort to shore up his administration as well as his border policies, Trump has appointed former Fox News contributor Mark Morgan, who is currently acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), to the role of head of Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
Mark Morgan was once a regular contributor on Fox News. If you have seen him, you know he is very much on the same page as Trump when it comes to enforcing border security. Morgan was among those very supportive of ICE raids to send illegal immigrants back over the border that have had deportation orders issued by the court. He is also among those that have little mercy for the “family unit.” As far as he is concerned, you broke the law, period.
Much of the reason that Sanders was more or less forced to resign was because of the deteriorating conditions at border facilities. That mess will fall right into Morgan’s lap on his first day in office.
That situation, unfortunately, may be something Morgan has to live with for some time, as relief funding appears to be getting held up by both sides in Congress. Additionally, Morgan will oversee the processing of asylum claims.
It would not matter who was in charge right now, there simply is not enough money to address the challenges being presented. There are about 12,000 people crowded into an area meant to hold 4,000… and this is just one facility. There are not enough staff, doctors, agents, or supplies because of the overwhelming numbers at our border right now.
We didn’t ask these people to come here they are coming on their own and many are murderers and rapists and doing just that just as Trump said in the beginning when he said “Mexico is not sending their best”. They are also bringing in many diseases that have since been vanquished in this country like measles and chicken pox and not all are from Central America either, but from all over the world like China and the Congo where Ebola is now rampant and they are not being properly checked.
The only way to fix the problem is if Dems work with President Trump and approves legislation without forcing their own agenda.
I have never seen such a bunch of mean, nasty, ugly sore losers and crybabies in my life as these dems. They are so upset that they lost in 2016 that they have become completely unhinged of rational thinking that they try to do everything they can to oppose Trump.
They tried this Russian Collusion hoax to get him impeached and throw him out of office. That didn’t work. They tried this soft coup with the deep state to get him out of office. That didn’t work so refuse to co-operate with him every step of the way all because Hillary lost. Now they want a do over of the Mueller report. They don’t care that they are hurting and destroying the country. They hate the country and want it to be like a third world country like everyone else instead of a leader. They remind me of a verse from a Bob Dylan song called ‘It’s Alright Ma, I’m Only Bleeding’ where it says “While some poor soul with his tongue on fire tries not to come up any higher, but rather pull you down in the hole that he’s in.” That’s what the dems are doing with this country and their socialist agenda.
