News Roundup! Economy, China, ISIS, Israel, Terrorism, 2020 Election, EO etc……

First and foremost, please take two minutes to watch the video below! This incredible video shows you what it means to MAGA under PDJT.

Our LION promised us that if elected, he would bomb the shit out of ISIS and defeat them. Promises Made, Promises Kept!

From the article linked above:

The caliphate has crumbled, and the final offensive is over. While the official announcement hasn’t yet been made – Fox News has been told that this village, the last ISIS stronghold, is liberated.

It’s the first time since we’ve been here in Syria for five days that the bombs have stopped dropping and the gunfire has disappeared. We have witnessed the end of the caliphate – the brutal empire that once ruled over 8 million people – is gone.

Troops here are now bringing down the black flags of ISIS. The flags no longer fly over the town, instilling fear.

Our President put out the following tweet in reference to the Golan Heights.

Someone that I have my eyes on for 2024 is very quick to congratulate our President and his mentor.

The Economic Train is absolutely loving life under PDJT! She loves to be able to steam across our country picking up passengers and steamrolling over our President’s enemies.

As much as they want to hold to the BS narrative that our President’s real GDP rate was 2.9% for 2018, the Federal Chairman shared the truth in his presser yesterday.

From the article linked above:

Real GDP increased by 2.9% in 2018 when measured from the 2017 annual level to the 2018 annual level. From Q4 2017 to Q4 2018, real GDP gained 3.1%, up from 2.5% in 2017.

“The Business investment components of Q4 GDP were much stronger than consensus,” he added. “Basically, this represents capital expenditures spending at a rate in Q4 that in no way reflects a pending major economic contraction, or recession, as was being fear mongered daily, the entire month of December.”

The Economic Train is flipping key recession indicators on their heads! The only thing holding us back according to the experts is global economic growth. These MORONS still don’t understand AMERICA FIRST!

From the article linked above:

  • The spread between 3-month and 10-year Treasury notes has fallen below 10 basis points for the first time since 2007.
  • An inverted yield curve, where short-term yields are higher than their longer-term counterparts, is considered a reliable recession signal.
  • The Federal Reserve this week said the U.S. economy is still strong but is facing challenges from global weakness.

From the article linked above:

The Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Business Outlook Survey rose to 13.7 for March, nearly triple the consensus forecast. That’s up from a reading of -4.1 in February, which was the only regional factory report to show contraction.

The consensus forecast was 5.5, with forecasts ranging from a low of -2 to a high of 15.

The current new orders index improved modestly, increasing from -2.4 in February to 1.9 in March. The current shipments index increased 25 points to 20.0.

The Chinese are messing with an APEX PREDATOR that has been patiently waiting the past 3 decades to get a shot at them.

The Chinese Economic Train has met her match! The EAGLE has unleashed the America First Economic Train.

From the article linked above:

Since the 2009 global financial crisis hobbled most of the world’s developed countries, China has been the economic locomotive pulling the rest of the world behind it.

But the sputtering Chinese-driven train appears to have pulled into the station. Growth targets have been slashed. Exports have fallen. Debt levels are rising. Some economists even say China is in a recession.

“It is true that China’s economy has encountered new, downward pressure,” Chinese Premier Li Keqiang told reporters last week at the conclusion of the annual National People’s Congress gathering in Beijing. Faced with growing pressures within and without, the government said it plans to create more than 11 million jobs this year to avoid a politically disruptive slowdown.

Mr. Li used unusually stark language to describe the challenges China faces. He said government planners at all levels need to “turn the blade inward” and “cut our own wrists” to carry out the sacrifices needed to keep the economy afloat.

Reality is beginning to slap the MSM, Democrats, RINOs, Globalists, Leftists, CoC, etc. right across the face as they look towards 2020.

From the article linked above:

Economic models point to a Trump blowout in 2020.

But if the election were held today, he’d likely ride to a second term in a huge landslide, according to multiple economic models with strong track records of picking presidential winners and losses.

Credit a strong U.S. economy featuring low unemployment, rising wages and low gas prices — along with the historic advantage held by incumbent presidents.

Our President has his eyes set on the Democrat Indoctrination Capital of the world, college campuses.

From the article linked above:

President Donald Trump will sign an Executive Order on improving free inquiry, transparency, and accountability on campus on Thursday.

The order will demand universities to certify their commitment to free speech in order to receive federal research grants.

“The president strongly supports free speech,” a senior administration told reporters during a briefing. “American institutions of higher education should support open intellectually engaging debate, which is critical to creating the next generation of successful leaders and thinkers.”

You can watch the signing in the link below:


News Roundup! Immigration, the Wall, Economy, ISIS, Terrorism, Special Elections etc……

There is so much that is going on today that I decided to lump it all together.


From the article linked above:

The Defense Department has identified $12.8 billion in possible funding that it could use to fulfill President Trump’s call for a border wall.

Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., released the 20-page spreadsheet on Twitter Monday night.

Trump last month declared a national emergency at the border, and said he wants to use $3.6 billion for border wall projects. The Pentagon’s list said it has found possible funding sources that are “in excess of the amount needed.”

Prior to the announcement about the additional $12.8 billion dollars, our President has already secured enough funds to build 50% of the WALL.


From the article linked above:

So much for Nancy Pelosi’s vow that Democrats would never let President Trump build his “immoral” wall.

The Democratic speaker of the House was adamant that “we’re not doing a wall” in January, when she thought that her new House majority would be able to easily stymie the President’s efforts to secure the border, but it turns out that she was wrong in just about every way possible.

As the Daily Caller reported Thursday, President Trump’s experts have directed enough funds since he took office to build more than half of the 722 miles of wall we need to protect the porous border with Mexico. About 111 miles are either currently under construction or have already been built.


We were able to flip another Democrat seat last night!



Also in Jacksonville, FL, the GOP had a tremendous showing. Florida is turning more and more RED as time goes by.




The Economic Train continues to build speed and pickup passengers as she steams across the country.



From the article linked above:

  • The new facility is scheduled to open in the next two years.
  • It will take new commercial-grade hybrid models and incorporate the self-driving technology needed to turn them into autonomous vehicles.
  • Ford’s development of autonomous and electric vehicles is at the core of CEO Jim Hackett’s plan to remake the automaker.

The new autonomous vehicle, or AV, facility is part of a $900 million investment Ford announced in 2017 to restructure its manufacturing footprint in Michigan. Ultimately, it’s expected to create up to 900 new jobs by 2023. That includes adding a second shift in 2023 at the company’s final assembly plant in Flat Rock, Michigan, to build an all-electric vehicle the company has yet to announce.

Good luck to the Democrats that are running on packing the Supreme Court if they win in 2020. Americans don’t want to see it happen!


From the article linked above:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 27% of Likely U.S. Voters favor increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court. Fifty-one percent (51%) are opposed, but 22% are undecided.

Our President used a visual to show how much territory ISIS occupied prior to his presidency versus what is left today.




You can watch the entire press conference at the link below.


Meanwhile in Italy, this tragedy happened.





Our President is currently delivering remarks at the Lima Army Tank Plant in Ohio. You can use the link below if you are interested in watching.



We are blessed to have PDJT as our President!

WOW! Today’s Decision From the Supreme Court Is Devastating for Illegals, Democrats, CoC, Koch Brothers, RINOs etc……

The Supreme Court decided in a 5-4 decision today to overturn the ruling from the 9th Circuit restricting when illegal aliens could be detained and deported.

The SCOTUS ruling (full pdf below) was in favor of PDJT’s administration, allowing federal officials to detain and deport illegal aliens after they have served their time in the U.S. for other crimes regardless of whether they were picked up immediately or later, after criminal release.

The 9th Circuit Court previously ruled that ICE would have to detain illegal aliens immediately after release or they would be exempt from later detainment. SCOTUS eliminated that restriction and affirmed detainment and deportation at any time after criminal release.

From the article linked above:

The Supreme Court on Tuesday endorsed the U.S. government’s authority to detain immigrants awaiting deportation anytime – potentially even years – after they have completed prison terms for criminal convictions, handing President Donald Trump a victory as he pursues hardline immigration policies.

The court ruled 5-4 along ideological lines, with its conservative justices in the majority and its liberal justices dissenting, that federal authorities could place such immigrants into indefinite detention anytime without the possibility of bail, not just immediately after they finish prison sentences.

Alito wrote that it is not the court’s job to impose a time limit for when immigrants can be detained after serving a prison sentence. Alito noted that the court has previously said that “an official’s crucial duties are better carried out late than never.” Alito said the challengers’ assertion that immigrants had to be detained within 24 hours of ending a prison sentence is “especially hard to swallow.”

Justice Kavanaugh left his mark!

Hispanic Americans are celebrating this win! They are supporting our President in record numbers. Even the BS skewed CNN Poll showed our President’s Approval amongst Hispanics at 34% (don’t forget it was skewed +7 for Democrats when nationally Republicans and Democrats each have 30% of voters).

Our President only got 29% of the Hispanic vote in 2016 and still won! He will be much closer to 40% in 2020.

From the article linked above:

On Monday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, CNN’s Miguel Marquez noted that 34% of Latinos approved of Trump in a recent CNN poll. He said, as a puzzled Erin Burnett looked on, that though a majority of Latinos disapprove of Trump, there are plenty who live along the U.S.-Mexico border who support Trump, believe that there is a “national emergency” at the border, and would like to see the size of the border walldoubledor “tripled.”

Rolando Rodriguez, who lives a mile from the border in McAllen, Texas, said he wants a 2,600-mile border wall that is “longer and taller.”

When asked how much taller he wants the border wall to be, Rodriguez replied, “twice as much at least.”

We are WINNING and it feels so good!

The Magnitude of Today’s Meeting Between PDJT & President Bolsonaro Of Brazil Can Be Felt All Over the World! Especially In China…..

I cannot overemphasize what the visit by President Bolsonaro of Brazil to the White House means for China.

I wrote the following thread and article on March 9th:


From the article linked above:

China is completely reliant on soybeans as a protein-rich animal feed (especially for their pigs) and as a cooking oil.  The U.S. is the worlds largest producer of soybeans at 108 million metric tonnes. Brazil is the second largest producer with around 87 million metric tonnes.

This article was written in 2013. It is relevant today to China’s needs when it comes to soybeans.

From the article linked above:

Four numbers tell the story of the explosive growth of soybean consumption in China. In 1995, China was producing 14 million tons of soybeans and it was consuming 14 million tons. In 2011, it was still producing 14 million tons of soybeans—but it was consuming 70 million tons, meaning that 56 million tons had to be imported.


Brazil would love to have an American military presence in their country.

The White House put the following Press Briefing out yesterday.

From the article linked above:

The U.S.-Brazil relationship has always been one of potential, but yet it always seemed that that potential has never been met. This time, it is different. This is a historic remaking of the U.S.-Brazil relationship, where there’s truly going to be a North-South axis of the two largest economies in the Western Hemisphere and a true partnership of the two largest economies in the Western Hemisphere.

Q: My first question is regarding the use of the Alcântara base. Does the U.S. need to confirm it by the U.S. Congress? And the second question is: What are the concrete steps being taken by the U.S. government to increase trade cooperation with Brazil?

SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL: So, going to the first question, I think that is in line with what we were previously talking about in regards to the Technology Safeguards Agreement. And that was understanding. I’m not sure, in regards to whether — I don’t believe that it needs to go to Congress. We can get you a follow-up after with that, for sure. But, obviously, that is a big development and it goes back to what I was saying in regards to the U.S. commercial space (inaudible) and the closer defense cooperation. And we think that that’s a great development.

President Bolsonaro was on with Shannon Bream last night. You can watch the interview in the tweet below:






You can watch the Joint Press Conference starting at 1:45 PM by using the link below.


President Bolsonaro is described as the Brazilian DJT. Both men are Nationalists and share a similar geopolitical outlook.

The Dragon is messing with the wrong EAGLE 🦅!

Money Talks & BS Walks! CNN Poll Has the Left, Democrats, MSM, CoC, RINOs, Globalist etc. On Suicide Watch…..

Our Economy is absolutely booming! As much as the MSM tries to hide that reality from people, word is getting out throughout the country. Those conversations are taking place at churches, work, amongst families and friends when they gather etc.

Our President is using Twitter to spread the truth!

CNN personnel had to be vomiting earlier today when the data from their survey was shared with them on the Economy.

They can push their BS Approval Rating as much as they want by skewing the sampling (Democrats +8 compared to Republicans).

Here is the real breakdown between Democrats, Republicans & Independents.

From the link above (as of February 12-28):

  • Democrats – 30%
  • Republicans – 30%
  • Independents – 38%

The 71% Economic Approval number tells the REAL story (and that % would be higher if the sampling was not skewed).

Democrats are in for a shellacking in 2020 because of the Economy.

From the article linked above:

According to Republican Party pollster Frank Luntz, Trump “has a greater degree of support within his party than any Republican President has ever had since they started polling.” If enough Democrats aren’t happy with the party’s nominee, overwhelming GOP support might be enough for Trump to win.

The polls may still be against another Trump win, but a resilient U.S. economy, a clever political message and ongoing changes to the ways Americans get their news suggest a fight to the finish.

From the article linked above:

  • Voters think the economy is doing better than they have in nearly two decades, according to a new CNN poll.
  • That could be good news for President Donald Trump as he runs for re-election in 2020.

President Donald Trump has one key factor in his favor ahead of his 2020 re-election bid.

Seventy-one percent of Americans say the economy is good, while only 27 percent rate it poor, according to a CNN poll released Monday. The last time respondents to the CNN poll held such rosy views of the economy was 2001.

U.S. gross domestic product has grown at a healthy rate. While job creation slowed significantly in February, wages have started to grow more after an adjustment for inflation.

Other recent polls have shown general optimism about the economy. In late February, 53 percent of Americans said they think there will not be a recession in the next 12 months, versus 33 percent who believe the economy will contract, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Generally, voters’ contentment with their wallets bodes well for an incumbent president. Trump has repeatedly pointed to a strong economy as evidence of his policy success as he seeks another term.

From the article linked above:

Democratic pollster John Zogby, who weekly grades the president along with conservative analyst Jed Babbin, said that the Democrats aren’t offering a credible alternative.

Trump will be hard to beat,” he said in his grade comments. He noted that the president isn’t polling well in the states he shocked Hillary Clinton in 2016, but that doesn’t mean he’s in trouble of losing.

He is not polling well in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. When did he ever? But you gotta beat him with something,” said Zogby.

Look what else is blowing up in their faces!

From the article linked above:

Amid signs that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference may be near its conclusion, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds that trust in Mueller has eroded and half of Americans agree with President Donald Trump’s contention that he has been the victim of a “witch hunt.”

Support for the House of Representatives to seriously consider impeaching the president has dropped since last October by 10 percentage points, to 28 percent.

Twenty-eight percent say they have a lot of trust in former FBI director Mueller’s investigation to be fair and accurate. That’s the lowest level to date and down 5 points since December.

In comparison, 30 percent express a lot of trust in Trump’s denials, the highest to date.

Overall, Americans by 62 percent-28 percent say the House shouldn’t seriously consider impeaching Trump, compared with 54 percent-39 percent last October.

Money talks and BS Walks! Our President and our country is WINNING!


There Is A Reason They Are Going To Rename the Rust Belt the Trump Belt After 2020! They Are Winning BIGLY Under PDJT……

What I admire most about PDJT is that he is all about the Forgotten Men and Women in our country. That is what drives him and his administration day in and day out. They believed in him and by their sheer numbers allowed him to overcome the BHO Administration, FBI, CIA, DOJ and voter fraud.

He has spent the last two plus years repaying them. They are winning BIGLY on their investment.


From the article linked above:

There’s a reason why President Trump is becoming more popular in important Midwestern battleground states like Pennsylvania: Voters don’t want to lose the ongoing economic renaissance that is transforming their lives.

According to a recent opinion survey from The Wall Street Journal, the president “cumulatively leads a generic Democratic opponent, 46 percent to 40 percent,” in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.

The survey’s findings are not surprising, and it’s no small coincidence that those states are all thriving under the president’s pro-growth economic policies.

Indeed, Trump’s economic agenda has had a profound effect on Pennsylvania: The state’s 4.0 percent unemployment rate is now the lowest it’s been in nearly two decades, and the economy continues to add new jobs at a dizzying pace.

Pennsylvania is prospering under Trump, and the latest opinion polling shows that voters know a good thing when they see it. The Democrats certainly have their work cut out for them in 2020.

Are they ever prospering under PDJT’s Administration! The data absolutely shows it.


From the article linked above:

The recent jump in paychecks has come with an unusual characteristic, as workers at the lower end of the pay scale are getting the greater benefit.

Average hourly earnings rose 3.4 percent in February from the same period a year ago, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report last week. That’s the biggest gain since April 2009 and seventh month in a row that compensation has been 3 percent or better.

What has set this rise apart is that it’s the first time during an economic recovery that began in mid-2009 that the bottom half of earners are benefiting more than the top half — in fact, about twice as much, according to calculations by Goldman Sachs. The trend began in 2018 and has continued into this year, and could be signaling a stronger economy than many experts think.


More than 2.8 million jobs were added last year according to the JOLTS Report.

From the article linked above:


First, available job openings in Durable Good Manufacturing in January 2018 were 261,000 it’s now 305,000. So there’s 44,000 more durable good manufacturing jobs available now than a year ago; again evidence this sector is continuing to expand at a rate higher than the available workforce to fill the jobs.

Second, [also Table-1] looking at all job sectors. While the job growth is regionally strong overall, there’s more job growth available in the South (+500k) and Midwest (+212k), than in the North-east (+143k) and West (+91k).

The “gamble” on our President has payed off! He is returning on the investment each and every single day!

  • All wages are growing, but wages are rising faster for Blue-Collar workers and the middle-class.
  • More jobs are available in just about every sector, but highest job growth is in higher wage durable good manufacturing.
  • More jobs are available throughout the country, but available job growth is highest in South and Mid-West.


From the article linked above:

The Rasmussen Reports Economic Index climbed to 142.4 in March, up seven points from last month  and ranking with 2018’s highs.

Enthusiasm about the economy started to grow immediately following Donald Trump’s election as president in November 2016 and spiked to 145.9 in February 2018. By comparison, in President Obama’s final years in office, this index reached a high of 121.5 in January 2015 and was at 108.1 his last month in the White House.


From the article linked above:

Don’t look now, but productivity might be making a comeback.

After a long decline through the 2000s and then several years of near-zero and even negative growth, the amount of stuff that Americans produce in the average work hour has been inching back upward since late 2016.

Productivity experienced its best growth in years during the fourth quarter of 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last week, rising 1.8% compared with the same period last year.

What’s driving it: Workers have been increasingly expensive and hard to find, forcing businesses to invest in equipment that makes their labor go further.

Those Americans that took a gamble on our President are seeing the payouts each and every day. They aren’t going to bet on someone else in 2020.

As a matter of fact, they will look for a candidate in 2024 that will run on our President’s Agenda.

I think I found the perfect person to carry TRUMPISM forward. Our President’s Legacy will be able to withstand the test of time.


He has and is continuing to learn from the BEST!


The future is once again bright for our kids and grandkids!

It Is the 18th Weekend For the Yellow Vests & They Are Only Growing In Size & Getting Angrier!

While our President decided to tweet earlier today about the Yellow Vests, French President Macron was enjoying some wine with his wife and friends as if everything is just perfect in his country.

Macron can enjoy his weekend getaways for now but he knows the Yellow Vests want one of two things to occur. Either he resigns or he loses his head.

The intensity of the protests are starting to pickup as the Yellow Vests fight back and begin to burn their country.

Here is a photo that shows the difference between a country that allowed itself to be invaded versus a country that said NO to the invaders.

From the article linked above:

Store windows on the Champs-Élysées were smashed on Saturday as the “Yellow Vests” protested for the 18th weekend.

Thousands of protesters began marching in November of last yearto protest a gas tax hike and demanded French President Emmanuel Macron resign.

The French police have used water cannons, tear gas and flash bombs to get the protests under control, but the Yellow Vest protesters refuse to back down, risking their lives to fight against Globalism.

Windows were smashed and looters in black masks [Antifa] were stealing merchandise from many different shops on the Champs Élysées.

From the article linked above:

Saturday’s Yellow Vest protests have escalated in intensity as clashes with the police grew increasingly violent. 

After weeks of more moderate protests, France’s Yellow Vests are back in full swing following the end of President Macron’s unsuccessful ‘great debate’ – during which thousands of town halls were conducted over a two-month period in the hopes of solving national issues through citizen debates. 

And with no meaningful changes after nationwide cathartic venting, the Yellow Vests are back to angry demonstrations as the protests kick off their 18th week with an ‘ultimatum’ rally – marked by lootings, fires, and mayhem that organizers maintain are due to a radical minority.

What will tomorrow bring?

Another Week & More Winning For Americans! The Economic Train Is Having Fun……

What an absolutely incredible week for Americans of ALL colors. The Economic Train has delivered once again.

Lets take a look at the Stock Market this past week.

  • DJIA – went up 1.57% this week & up 10.81% YTD
  • Nasdaq – went up 3.78% this week & up 15.87% YTD
  • S&P 500 Index – went up 2.89% this week & up 12.59% YTD
  • Russell 2000 (my favorite) – went up 2.08% this week & up 15.20% YTD

Our President will be proven right because he is well on his way to being the BEST Jobs President ever.



From the article linked above:

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) JOLTS reported the number of job openings continued to rise to 7.6 million on the last business day of January. The results came in above the high end of the forecast range.

The consensus forecast was just 7.2 million, with forecasts ranging from a low of 6.9 million to a high of 7.34 million.

Job openings increased in a number of industries, with the largest increases in wholesale trade (+91,000), real estate and rental and leasing (+60,000), and information (+41,000).


From the article linked above:

U.S. employers posted nearly 7.6 million open jobs in January, near a record high set in November, evidence that businesses are still hungry for workers despite signs the economy has slowed.

The Labor Department said Friday that hiring also rose and the number of people quitting their jobs picked up. Quits are a sign of a healthy economy, because people typically leave a job for another, usually higher-paying, one.

The tally of available jobs now outnumbers the unemployed by roughly 1 million. Openings began to outpace the unemployed last spring, for the first time in the 18 years the data has been tracked.

“The question now is, will workers be increasingly tempted to switch to new jobs or will their current employers raise wages to keep them?” said Nick Bunker, an economist at job listings website Indeed.



This tweet put such a big smile on my face!



From the article linked above:

The preliminary reading on consumer sentiment for March came in above the consensus forecast at 97.8, up from 95.2 in February. The gain was driven by rising optimism among working families.

The latest results represent a complete reversal as the prior bounce in sentiment was driven by households at the top of the income distribution.

The early March gain in sentiment was entirely due to households with incomes in the bottom two-thirds of the distribution, whose sentiment rose to 97.4 from 90.0 in February,” Richard Curtain, Chief Economist for the Survey of Consumers said.

“Sentiment fell among households with incomes in the top third to 98.5 in early March from 101.7 in February.”

Current Economic Conditions rose from 108.5 in February to 111.2 in March, while the Index of Consumer Expectations rose from 84.4 to 89.2.



The part of the Tax Reform Bill that will pay the biggest dividend for our President, Blacks and Hispanics is the Opportunity Zone Tax Legislation. This photo comes from a very large Democrat base in Tallahassee, FL.


This tweet is like sunlight to a vampire if you are a disciple of the previous POS. The numbers speak for themselves.


Americans are WINNING and the Economic Train continues to smile while picking up passengers and running over her enemies.

The VETO Has Been Signed, Sealed & Delivered! The WALL Is Continuing To Be Built….. UPDATED…….

Earlier this afternoon, our President surrounded himself with Angel moms, dads, brothers, sisters, wives etc. in the Oval Office as he signed the Veto to the resolution passed in the House and Senate against his National Emergency Declaration.

There will not be an override of his veto. The House would need 285 Representatives and the Senate would need 67 Senators. The House Bill only got 240 votes (45 short of what would be needed) and the Senate only got 59 votes (8 short of what would be needed).

Earlier this morning, Hogan Gidley, White House Principal Deputy Secretary, was on with Fox News to defend the President’s decision.

The company that has said they can build 234 miles of Wall for $1.4 billion dollars did a demo for DHS this week.

We need to continue to destroy the BS narrative that is being stated by those that are supposedly on our side that the Wall is not being built.

You can find the thread to my tweet directed at Laura Ingraham below:

We are absolutely WINNING!


To the House of Representatives:

I am returning herewith without my approval H.J. Res. 46, a joint resolution that would terminate the national emergency I declared regarding the crisis on our southern border in Proclamation 9844 on February 15, 2019, pursuant to the National Emergencies Act.

As demonstrated by recent statistics published by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and explained in testimony given by the Secretary of Homeland Security on March 6, 2019, before the House Committee on Homeland Security, our porous southern border continues to be a magnet for lawless migration and criminals and has created a border security and humanitarian crisis that endangers every American.

Last month alone, CBP apprehended more than 76,000 aliens improperly attempting to enter the United States along the southern border — the largest monthly total in the last 5 years.  In fiscal year 2018, CBP seized more than 820,000 pounds of drugs at our southern border, including 24,000 pounds of cocaine, 64,000 pounds of methamphetamine, 5,000 pounds of heroin, and 1,800 pounds of fentanyl.

In fiscal years 2017 and 2018, immigration officers nationwide made 266,000 arrests of aliens previously charged with or convicted of crimes.  These crimes included approximately 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 killings.  In other words, aliens coming across our border have injured or killed thousands of people, while drugs flowing through the border have killed hundreds of thousands of Americans.

The current situation requires our front-line border enforcement personnel to vastly increase their humanitarian efforts.  Along their dangerous trek to the United States, 1 in 3 migrant women experiences sexual abuse, and 7 in 10 migrants are victims of violence.

Fifty migrants per day are referred for emergency medical care, and CBP rescues 4,300 people per year who are in danger and distress.  The efforts to address this humanitarian catastrophe draw resources away from enforcing our Nation’s immigration laws and protecting the border, and place border security personnel at increased risk.

As troubling as these statistics are, they reveal only part of the reality.  The situation at the southern border is rapidly deteriorating because of who is arriving and how they are arriving.  For many years, the majority of individuals who arrived illegally were single adults from Mexico.

Under our existing laws, we could detain and quickly remove most of these aliens.  More recently, however, illegal migrants have organized into caravans that include large numbers of families and unaccompanied children from Central American countries.  Last year, for example, a record number of families crossed the border illegally.  If the current trend holds, the number of families crossing in fiscal year 2019 will greatly surpass last year’s record total.

Criminal organizations are taking advantage of these large flows of families and unaccompanied minors to conduct dangerous illegal activity, including human trafficking, drug smuggling, and brutal killings.

Under current laws, court decisions, and resource constraints, the Government cannot detain families or undocumented alien children from Central American countries in significant numbers or quickly deport them.  Instead, the Government is forced to release many of them into the interior of the United States, pending lengthy judicial proceedings.  Although many fail ever to establish any legal right to remain in this country, they stay nonetheless.

This situation on our border cannot be described as anything other than a national emergency, and our Armed Forces are needed to help confront it.

My highest obligation as President is to protect the Nation and its people.  Every day, the crisis on our border is deepening, and with new surges of migrants expected in the coming months, we are straining our border enforcement personnel and resources to the breaking point.

H.J. Res. 46 ignores these realities.  It is a dangerous resolution that would undermine United States sovereignty and threaten the lives and safety of countless Americans.  It is, therefore, my duty to return it to the House of Representatives without my approval.
