In July, 82,049 illegal aliens, mostly from Central America, marched across our southwest border to bring the total for fiscal 2019 to 862,785 [Southwest Border Migration FY 2019, CBP.gov]. That wasn’t “immigration,” it was an invasion—abetted by an internal Treason Lobby called the Democrat Party. But President Donald J. Trump can stop it if he’s willing to use historic precedent. He must act unilaterally, as Lincoln did: ignore Congress, declare state and local sanctuary officials to be in insurrection, then send more troops to the border, and not just to roll bandages and handle email for the Border Patrol. The troops would be there to help stop the invasion and turn the “migrants” away. Above all, he must defy the Kritarchy—the term VDARE.com has popularized (to the great dismay of the Ruling Class) for America’s long-mounting epidemic of Leftist legislating judges.
Consider the latest news. In the five months since March, 543,856 illegals have tramped across the border, more than half the total since October. By fiscal year’s end on September 30, a city larger than San Jose, California, population 1,030,1019, will have moved to the United States.
Except that our “new Americans” are nothing like the residents of San Jose (median income $96,662 in 2017, 41.3 percent college-or-better-educated [Quick Facts San Jose, Census.gov]). They are poverty-stricken, sick and diseased illiterates with flu, lice, Chagas, scabies, mumps, measles, and tuberculosis [Border Patrol agents fall prey to illnesses plaguing migrant holding centers, by Anna Giaritelli, Washington Examiner, June 16, 2019]. Some are Africans possibly infected with Ebola. The Center for Immigration Studies reported in July that more than 35,000 Africans are headed for the U.S. border.[The Next Influx: The Entire World's Poor and Dispossessed, by Todd Bensman, July 1, 2019]. Agents in the Del Rio Sector have apprehended more than 1,100 Africans since May [Del Rio Border Patrol Sector African Arrests top 1,100, CBP.gov, July 19, 2019]
Even worse, border officials release illegal-alien “family units” within 48 hours because they don’t have the facilities to hold them, and the crazy Flores settlement forbids holding illegal-alien children more than 20 days [Border Patrol Chief: 5,800 'Fake Families' Discovered at the Border, by Nicholas Bailey, PJMedia, July 30, 2019]. The administration has published rules to amend Flores, but a Leftist Kritarch will almost certainly sabotage them [Trump administration to allow longer detention of migrant families, by Geneva Sands and Sam Fossum, CNN, August 22, 2019]
More shocking data came from the Texas Department of Public Safety in June and Bureau of Justice Statistics this month.
From Texas we learned that “over 295,000 criminal aliens have been booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011 and June 30, 2019, of which over 200,000 were classified as illegal aliens by [Department of Homeland Security],” TDPS reported. [Texas Criminal Illegal Alien Data] “Over the course of their entire Texas criminal careers, these 200,000 illegal aliens were charged with more than 489,000 criminal offenses,” including more than 1,000 homicides and more than 13,000 sex crimes. They ended in 224,000 convictions, including 500 for homicide and almost 7,000 for sex crimes.
Using our city comparison again, Texas’ illegal-alien jail population over the last eight years was the size of Salt Lake City, Utah.
And that’s just Texas. As Trump noted in January on Twitter, 23 percent of federal inmates are illegal aliens. It’s actually 26 percent, but Trump was close enough [DOJ: 26% of Federal Prisoners Are Aliens, by Preston Huennekens, Center for Immigration Studies, July 12, 2018]
From BJS we get this eye-opener: In 1998, 63 percent of those arrested for a federal crime were Americans. Now, 64 percent are non-citizens [Immigration, Citizenship, and the Federal Justice System, 1998-2018, by Mark Motivans, August 2019]
As well, Mexicans are arrested more often for federal crimes in the U.S. than Americans. In 2018, the feds collared 78,062 Mexicans versus 70,542 Americans. Twenty years so, federal cops arrested less than 30,000 Mexicans. They also arrested 39,858 Central Americans, an increase of more than 3,000 percent from the 1,171 that were arrested in 1998.
Add to those data the previously deported rapists, murderers, and child molesters who jump the border only to be re-arrested [Media Releases (previously-deported), CBP.gov].
Here’s what will stop the invasion:
In a televised address from the Oval Office, Trump must declare the invasion is national emergency and sanctuary officials in insurrection, then assert plenary power over immigration policy. The Executive, he must explain, is a co-equal branch of government over which the Congress and courts have no legal or practical control. As well, Congress conferred the power to control immigration upon the executive.
Then can the undoing of the Kritarchs begin.
Trump’s asserting his lawful authority over immigration is long overdue [What Are the President’s Emergency Immigration Powers? by Dan Cadman, Center for Immigration Studies, Nov. 9, 2018]. Federal law permits him to stop anyone from coming into the country without permission from Congress or the courts.
Yet look at what’s happened.
Though the U.S. Supreme Court backed Trump recently on using military money for wall construction [Supreme Court says Trump can proceed with plan to spend military funds for border wall construction, Robert Barnes, Washington Post, July 26, 2019], the high court upheld the Kritarch who enjoined Trump’s entirely reasonable executive order that blocked asylum claims from “migrants” who cross the border illegally [Supreme Court Won’t Revive Trump Policy Limiting Asylum, by Adam Liptak, New York Times, Dec. 21, 2018].The Kritarchs also enjoined Trump’s forbidding asylum claims from those entering the United States from a country other than their own [Trump’s Latest Attempt to Bar Asylum Seekers Is Blocked After a Day of Dueling Rulings, by Miriam Jordan and Zolan Kanno-Youngs, New York Times, July 24, 2019].
This must end.
When the administration announced that immigration raids would begin July 14 Lightfoot harrumphed that Chicago’s cops “will not team up with ICE to detain any resident. We have also cut off ICE access from any CPD databases and that will remain permanent.” That brazen defiance of federal law is a crime. Federal prosecutors should charge Lightfoot with obstruction of justice for interfering with federal law enforcement and court and administrative proceedings. [18 USC Ch. 73: Obstruction of Justice, U.S.Code.House.Gov]
But obstruction of justice is less important than the other federal crime sanctuary officials commit: again, insurrection. [18 USC 2383: Rebellion or insurrection, U.S.Code.House.Gov]
As the Guard’s own website explains:
Those justifications might even give Trump the excuse to use active duty military at the border, but anyway, the Guard’s mission isn’t just distributing Dasani and blankets when Hurricane Jpod hits Chocolate City. Its mission is national defense.
Guardsman have guns and rifles, and can be provided with ammunition. If we can send Marines across the globe to fight in the Hindu Kush, we can deploy the Guard to our southern frontier to stop an invasion. And the Guardsmen in this new, massive deployment would not do what they do now: secretarial work for the Border Patrol. They would erect a cordon sanitaire from Brownsville, Texas, to the Pacific coast. They can ask the Israelis (or the Indians) for technical advice.
The ACLU, $PLC, and leftist attorneys general will seek relief from the Kritarchs, who will enjoin the arrests and border deployments, and so Trump must then do what Honest Abe did during the War Between the States, which will surely meet with the approval of the neocons and the Democrats, given their voluble admiration for our “greatest” president.
Again, Trump must act unilaterally. Tear up the court orders and toss them in the trash.
When Abraham Lincoln suspended habeas corpus and jailed James Merryman for trying to stop the federal occupation of Baltimore, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Roger Taney ruled that Lincoln acted unconstitutionally. But Lincoln told him to pound sand. For good measure, by the way, he also locked up the mayor of Baltimore, its city council and police chief, and Frank Key Howard, Francis Scott Key’s grandson.
Lincoln averred that “war powers” and preserving the union conferred such authority even though the Constitution gives Congress the power to suspend habeas. The Constitution, he supposedly said, is not a suicide pact. Trump can likewise assert his authority and cite the rail-splitter as precedent—although Trump, unlike Lincoln, would not be acting unconstitutionally. As well, his border initiative won’t start an invasion of his own country but instead stop an invasion by others.
Donald John Trump swore on a Bible to protect this country from “all enemies, foreign and domestic.” As the executive, a co-equal branch of government, he can and must ignore Congress and the courts. Far from harming the Constitution, nearly a dead letter anyway, Trump’s assertion of authority might revivify it.
And such a brassy move would likely stop the illegal infiltrators before they start for the border.
Currently, social media tell them that Congress and the courts have blocked Trump’s immigration initiatives and can’t deport them [Press Briefing—CBP Releases Fiscal Year 2019 Migration Stats, Customs and Border Protection, March 5, 2019]. As CIS’s Bensman reported, even the Africans know it: “Trump wants to keep us out, but he can’t do it,” one said. Yet just as word that the borders are open went viral, so would Trump’s arrest of sanctuary officials and deployment of troops.
Message to the Democrats and their new voters:
