Border Security coyotes David hogg Debate Donald Trump Illegal Immigration Intelwars Jemele hill Leftists

Trump refers to ‘coyotes’ during illegal immigration segment at debate — and Twitter ‘blue check marks’ dazzle with their ignorance

Leftists love to call President Donald Trump names, particularly with regard to his cognitive abilities. Idiot, stupid, moron — yup, that’s the leader of the free world, they say.

But during Thursday night’s debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, Trump apparently really stepped in it when he referred to “coyotes” — i.e., human smugglers — who illegally bring children across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Why? Well, some pretty prominent Trump-haters on Twitter lost their minds — no jokes, please — because they actually appeared to believe Trump was talking about the furry, walks-on-all-fours, looks-like-a-wolf coyotes.

Really.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste

First up is everybody’s favorite scowling, skinny-armed, gun-confiscation poster boy David Hogg:

“Imagine calling the immigrant parents that bring their children to the United States for a better life ‘coyotes,'” Hogg wrote. “The level of xenophobia is sickening.”

His post as of Friday morning was still active — and being ratioed to death. Check it out while it’s hot.

Next up is Jemele Hill, that former ESPN host posing as a sociopolitical raconteur. The Atlantic gave her a shot, if that’s any indication. Anyway, Hill reacted with the following:

For real, dawg.

Or how about Dar’shun Kendrick? She’s not only an attorney but also a member of the Georgia House of Representatives — and the chief deputy whip of its Democratic wing, no less. Kendrick was in total disbelief that an animal could carry a human across the border:

“How the hell does a coyote bring a whole human across the border?!” she responded, dumbfounded. “Lord—–stop talking.”

It’s worth it to note that Kendrick didn’t take kindly Friday morning to contrarians snapping back at her:

And it also may come as no surprise that Kendrick last year infamously touted a “Testicular Bill of Rights” to protest the Georgia House passing a bill banning abortions after fetal heartbeat detection. Her bill aimed to “regulate” men’s bodies, for example, by banning vasectomies and forcing them to get permission from their sexual partners before getting Viagra.

Oh, there’s more. Much more.

The latter three aren’t the only unsharpened tools in the shed, apparently:

Omri Ceren, national security adviser for Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), had the following to say in response to Hill’s unfortunate query:

“It’s not the lack of knowledge,” he wrote, “it’s the confidence in that lack of knowledge.”

Indeed, it would appear that members of the left for so long and so often have told themselves they’re so much smarter than those rubes from flyover country that they’ve ended up utterly convinced of that narrative — to the point of collective ignorance in regard to uncomplicated, easily accessible truths.

Border Security Child separation Department of Homeland Security Illegal Immigration immigration Intelwars Zero-tolerance policy

DHS disputes report that government cannot reunite 545 separated migrant children with their parents

A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday disputed a report that the parents of 545 migrant children separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border cannot be found.

According to a report from NPR, court filings by the U.S. Justice Department and the American Civil Liberties Union indicate that 545 children separated under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy have not been reunited with their families because the government cannot find their parents. Under the controversial policy, the federal government attempted to prosecute each and every migrant who entered the United States illegally. As a result, thousands of migrant children who came to the United States illegally were separated from their parents or adult guardians while the government prosecuted the adults accompanying those minors.

The policy of separating migrant children from parents being prosecuted for crimes did not originate with the Trump administration and was in fact in place during the Obama administration. However, because the Trump administration attempted to prosecute every migrant who crossed the border illegally, more children were separated from their parents than under previous administrations.

In 2018, after a successful lawsuit from the ACLU, a federal court ordered the Trump administration to reunite the separated families and the policy was discontinued that year.

NPR reports that the court order mandating migrant families be reunited did not cover about 1,000 families separated by a 2017 pilot program and that the federal government has thus far been unable to locate over half of those parents.

The DHS claims this is a false narrative, and that in reality many of the parents contacted by the federal government did not want to be reunited with their children.

“This narrative has been dispelled on numerous occasions. DHS has taken every step to facilitate the reunification of these families where the parents wanted such reunification to occur,” DHS spokesman Chase Jennings said in a statement.

“The simple fact is this: after contact has been made with the parents to reunite them with their children, many parents have refused. In the current litigation, for example, out of the parents of 485 children whom Plaintiffs’ counsel has been able to contact, they have yet to identify a single family that wants their child reunited with them in their country of origin. The result is that the children remain in the U.S. while the parents remain in their home country. The reunification process is a whole-of-Government approach involving CBP, ICE, and HHS.”

Jennings further disputed the NPR story on Twitter.

In response to the NPR story, several lawmakers and the Joe Biden presidential campaign condemned the Trump administration without addressing the rebuttal from DHS.

A statement from the Biden campaign called the NPR story’s claims “an outrage, a moral failing, and a stain on our national character.”

Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-Va.), said it was “disgusting that this administration permanently separated families, leaving 545 children alone.” Reps. Jason Crow (D-Colo.) and Judy Chu (D-Calif.) also criticized the Trump administration. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.) said the Trump administration “had no plan for reunification before initiating this cruel & inhumane policy of child separation, and the damage it has done is immeasurable.”

House Majority Leader Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) called the report “outrageous & unacceptable” and accused the Trump administration of xenophobia.

As did Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.).

Border Security criminal aliens ICE Illegal Immigration Immigration and Customs Enforcement Intelwars Law Enforcement

ICE arrests 170 criminal aliens in sanctuary cities

Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Thursday announced the arrest of more than 170 criminal illegal aliens in sanctuary city jurisdictions throughout the United States.

ICE authorities arrested criminal aliens in Seattle, Denver, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., in a targeted enforcement operation that began on Oct. 3 and ended Oct. 9. According to a press release from ICE, the law enforcement actions were directed at illegal aliens who were arrested for crimes and had immigration detainers but were nevertheless released by state or local law enforcement agencies. ICE said more than 80% of those arrested had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges at the time of their arrest.

“Last fiscal year, 86 percent of people arrested by ICE had criminal convictions or pending charges. ICE focuses its resources on those who pose the greatest threat to public safety. The men and women of ICE put their lives on the line every day to keep these individuals off the streets,” acting DHS Secretary Chad F. Wolf said. “The Department will continue to carry out lawful enforcement actions in order to keep our communities safe, regardless of whether or not we have cooperation from state and local officials. Politics will not come before safety when enforcing the law and keeping our citizens safe.”

The ICE statement notes that in the New York City area alone, authorities arrested nearly 50 illegal aliens with histories of crime including sexual assault, sex crime, assault, robbery, larceny, family neglect, and DUI.

Among those arrested include a 29-year-old Mexican citizen who was convicted in 2018 of illegally re-entering the United States and convicted in October 2020 on charges of menacing-real/simulated weapon, child abuse, and violation of bail bond conditions; a 64-year-old Panamanian citizen convicted in 2010 of sexual conduct against a child in the 2nd degree; a 61-year-old citizen of Peru convicted in 2016 of a criminal sex act in the 3rd degree involving a victim younger than 17 years old; and a 25-year-old Guatemalan citizen arrested for commercial sex abuse of a minor in February 2019 who had previously been removed from the United States in 2013 and illegally re-entered the country.

This operation follows the arrest of 128 at-large illegal aliens last week in sanctuary city jurisdictions in California.

“ICE continues to protect communities by taking criminal aliens off the streets regardless of any locality’s cooperation policies – which is part of our Congressionally mandated mission,” ICE senior official Tony H. Pham said. “Officers and agents of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are sworn federal law enforcement officers who enforce U.S. immigration laws created by Congress to keep this country safe.”

New Border Patrol chief says he won’t turn illegal aliens over for criminal prosecution if sanctuary jurisdictions won’t return them

The Border Patrol’s new chief said this week that the law enforcement agency won’t be turning over illegal aliens accused of crimes if the prosecuting jurisdiction can’t guarantee that they’ll be given back to federal authorities for deportation afterward.

“My job is to protect the United States and to secure the borders, not to get prosecutions, so we are deporting people that have active warrants because the state will not give back that person to us, and we have to pick: federal law or state law,” Rodney Scott said recently at a briefing, as reported Tuesday by the Washington Examiner.

The new chief also said it doesn’t matter what kind of crime the illegal alien has been charged with if a jurisdiction won’t cooperate with immigration authorities.

“It doesn’t really matter the charge,” Scott explained, according to the report. “If they will not give confirmation that they are going to return the individual, then we are not going to turn them over. We’ll prosecute them federally, then deport them.”

Scott, a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Border Patrol, was named chief of the agency in late January. Before that, he headed up the agency’s San Diego Sector, which includes 60 miles of land border with Mexico and over 930 miles of coastal border stretching from California to Oregon. The sector also employs over 2,200 uniformed agents, according to its Fiscal Year 2019 report.

In a January statement announcing his selection for the post, acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan called Scott “the absolute embodiment of the U.S. Border Patrol’s motto, ‘Honor First.'”

Fighting against sanctuary jurisdiction policies throughout the United States has been a key component of the Trump administration’s immigration policy since the president took office. For example, earlier this year, Immigration and Customs enforcement called out Cook County, Illinois, in January for releasing 1,070 criminal aliens and immigration violators during Fiscal Year 2019 despite detainer requests.

Last month, acting ICE Director Matthew Albence also slammed sanctuary policies following an inspector general’s report that state and local jurisdictions’ non-cooperation actions since 2013 had resulted in over 17,000 removable aliens still being at large.

Border Security China Chinese nationals Coronavirus Illegal Immigration Intelwars Southern border

Hundreds of Chinese nationals have been caught this year illegally crossing the US-Mexico border

More than 300 Chinese nationals have been apprehended trying to illegally enter the United States through the southern border in 2020, and the acting head of the Department of Homeland Security said the border could be a potential vulnerability for the spread of coronavirus, according to the Washington Times.

The coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, originated in China and has infected tens of thousands and killed thousands of people there. Now that it is spreading worldwide, including in the United States and Mexico, the potential for further spread adds another layer to the issue of border security.

What’s the issue?

Thousands of migrants are caught attempting to illegally enter the United States through the border with Mexico every week, and many more certainly make it in undetected. Just this year, 328 of them have been from China. Coronavirus originated in China in December, and became a world public health emergency shortly after its discovery.

Many Chinese illegal immigrants attempt to get in the U.S. through official border crossing checkpoints by being smuggled concealed in cars. Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, said that presents a problem for coronavirus containment efforts. From the Washington Times:

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad F. Wolf raised the issue Tuesday with the House Homeland Security Committee, saying that illegal immigration presents a unique threat compared to legal travelers from China, who are being screened on arrival.

“The individuals that are coming in at our 11 airports that are being funneled, we have very good information of their travel history, of their medical history. We’re not going to have that same set of fidelity for the individuals if this continues to grow at the southwest border,” he said.

There is a small but growing number of coronavirus cases in Mexico, and Wolf is also concerned that a potential reversal of the policy that requires asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico rather than be released into the United States could make things worse for U.S. coronavirus control efforts.

Border Security College democrats college republicans Corky messner dartmouth college Intelwars Left-wing college students Leftists New Hampshire opioid crisis Threats Violence against conservatives

Threats of left-wing violence lead Dartmouth College Republicans to cancel talk on opioid crisis and need for border security

Citing concerns over left-wing threats of violence, the Dartmouth College Republicans indefinitely postponed a policy talk on the need for border security and New Hampshire’s opioid crisis, NHJournal reported.

What are the details?

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Corky Messner was slated to speak Tuesday on “Building a Wall Against Drugs: The Need for Border Security to End the Opioid Crisis,” the outlet said.

“The security risk has outpaced our capacity to handle the potential protests. Given the reaction and the subject matter, and the threats against our members, we’re facing a security problem bigger than we can handle,” Daniel Bring, chairman of the Dartmouth College Republicans, told NHJournal. “There’s a large contingent of radical leftists on campus who have descended on events in the past in order to shut down speech they don’t agree with. They pound on doors, rush the podium and harass the speakers. The backlash has been so great, we’re not prepared to say we will have the necessary security.”

Bring added to the outlet that group members have received specific threats and alerted campus security and Hanover police: “It’s not just a single comment here or there; it’s the wider situation and the threat of radical, intense protests.”

Griffin Mackey, secretary of Dartmouth College Republicans, told NHJournal that members heard threats directed toward the group as well as Messner.

“We don’t know if they were serious or not, but our first priority has to be an event that’s safe and where people who want to hear our speaker feel welcome,” Mackey said.

Mackey added to the outlet that he was concerned about tactics College Democrats have used in the past, noting that when conservative author David Horowitz spoke in 2018, College Democrats showed up with laptops, sat in the crowd, logged on to porn sites, and cranked up the volume. “I’m not kidding,” he said.

What did Messner have to say?

Messner told NHJournal that he’s frequently “encountered situations where the healthy exchange of ideas is discouraged by those who apparently feel threatened by even the existence of opposing viewpoints” and that “the situation at Dartmouth College is the most egregious example I’ve encountered of this intellectual intolerance. Thanks to the efforts of those agitators who disagree with the planned event topic — the mere topic itself, mind you — we are denied the right to assemble, the right to listen to others’ viewpoints — to even express ourselves. Ironically, freedom of speech is demonized at an institution of higher learning, where expression and exploration of ideas should be exalted, not stamped out.”

No sympathy from College Democrats

“When the College Republicans encounter pushback for hosting racist events, they cry censorship,” Katie Smith, communications director for Dartmouth College Democrats, added to the outlet. “It is not censorship to call out racism when you see it. We encourage everyone to use their right to free speech to voice their opinion on the matter.”

In addition, NHJournal said College Democrats issued a statement denouncing the “xenophobia and racism” of the talk, saying they “unequivocally condemn this illegitimate excuse for a ‘policy talk.’ We won’t stand for the racism and anti-immigrant policies propagated by Corky Messner and endorsed by the Dartmouth College Republicans.”

What did other opponents of the talk have to say?

“The College Republicans can — and I cannot stress this enough — f*** off,” a class of 2023 member tweeted, the outlet said.

“I say Dartmouth Twitter should band together and jump the College Republicans for that email/event. I’m sure none of them can fight,” another commenter tweeted, adding an invitation to a progressive counter-event, NHJournal said.

Anything else?

The New Hampshire Federation of College Republicans issued a statement calling the threats “an insult to the First Amendment,” the outlet said.

“The right to freedom of speech and thought is a unique value in our society that is increasingly under attack from the far left, especially on our college campuses,” the statement continued, according the NHJournal. “This type of behavior should not be tolerated by Dartmouth College or its administration — it’s time for colleges and universities to stand up and denounce this type of egregious behavior by their extreme left students.”

Here’s Crowder to explain the sole purpose for an immigration system to exist and why borders must be observed and protected. Hint: American values.
