RED alert: Illegal immigration on pace to TRIPLE as Dems, RINOs, resist Trump’s attempt to secure border

By Jon Dougherty

Illegal immigration into the United States is rising so fast it is now on pace to triple this year, according to recent figures, even as Trump administration officials sound the alarm bells.

In February alone — a short month — there were more than 76,000 illegal border crossings and inadmissible foreign nations, which is a record for POTUS Donald Trump’s administration and the highest level in a year.

That has led Princeton Policy Advisor Steven Kopits to project illegal crossings along the U.S.-Mexico border will likely be more than three times higher than they were in 2017 and about double last year’s total.

In the month of February, there were more than 76,000 illegal border crossings and inadmissible foreign nationals, the most in this month in 12 years — a record for President Trump’s administration.

His projection of 840,000 illegal crossers this year is astounding but it actually falls short of what Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is projecting: 900,000.

Frankly, say experts, those figures will overwhelm any existing capacity the United States has remaining to deal with them.




“Crossings are now clearly at crisis levels, and the pressure will be on Democrats in Congress to tighten asylum laws if they intend to hold the House in 2020,” Kopits said, Breitbart News reported.

I would note that migrants are also certainly aware of this, and therefore apprehension numbers could rise substantially heading into the summer months as migrants rush to cross the border before new legislation can be prepared.”

The rise in illegal crossings comes as the Trump administration has been stymied by Congress and federal courts in virtually everything it has tried in terms of stemming the tide. The addition of active duty and Guard troops has been about the only thing that the president has been able to do in terms of beefing up border security, and even then, blue state governors have refused to contribute their own Guard forces.

The administration lost another federal court battle this week over its attempt to withhold funding from sanctuary cities.

It’s not as if DHS and immigration officials aren’t trying to get Congress’ attention. Kevin McAleenan, the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that in addition to more resources, Congress needed to change laws as well.

Specifically, he said the Border Patrol should be able to detain families as a unit, which is currently prohibited under the government’s interpretation of existing law. Also, Congress should reform the asylum laws and make it easier for immigration officials to send illegal border crossers back to their home countries.

McAleenan said that “63 percent of our traffic at the border would be addressed by a change in the laws.”



Meanwhile, Nielson told the House Homeland Security Committee that her department is straining under a lack of resources to deal with the human waves.

“Our capacity is already severely strained, but these increases will overwhelm the system entirely,” Nielsen said. “This is not a manufactured crisis. This is truly an emergency.”

Majority Democrats, however, didn’t want to hear that, however.

“The secretary can choose whether to be complicit in this administration’s misinformation campaign, or she can correct the record,” said Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who asked her not to ‘repeat the president’s lies’ on the matter.

The Democrat-controlled House has already voted to rescind POTUS Trump’s emergency declaration along the U.S. border, and the GOP-controlled Senate appears set to pass the legislation as well. That will set up Trump’s first veto, but at this point, there’s no indication the veto will be sustained.

  1. Trump can’t seem to find the courage to use the military to control the border so what difference does any of it make? I’d just as soon see the bottom fall out just like in Venezuela, than live as a vassal of Wall Street and Silicone Valley billionaires. America is becoming a third world bus terminal like the EU.

    That’s where we headed with a border that’s de facto wide open & sanctuary cities subsidizing & shielding illegals. It’s year three & President Trump has failed when it comes to saving America. What we have today isn’t any salvation. It’s national suicide.

    Dear Mr. President, do your job, or go on back up the escalator. We need a challenger in the GOP primary like Ann Coulter to make sure the President understands that some of us are dead serious about preserving America. What Trump is doing amounts to allowing them to steal the radio while leaving the music. We didn’t elect him for more of the same & for all his good intentions & efforts they’re still coming in the windows.

    And don’t bother telling me about the House Democrats, Congress, the judiciary, or the media. We all have that much figured out. The President certainly can do, what it is that he can do and he isn’t. Trump isn’t doing any of it.

    OK sure, I am fine with what he has done, but what he has done doesn’t amount to anything, if he can’t regain control over the border & force the Chinese to play by the rules. It’s cowardly & a betrayal to continue on like this.

  2. Thank you for the timely and essential message. We are losing our country and Trump knows it.
