Border Protection Talks Break Down As Open Borders Dems Demand Cap On Beds For Illegal Aliens

President Trump should say that ICE will no longer have anything to do with a few certain areas that are sanctuaries for illegal aliens, and watch them stream into those places, over-burdening the health system, education system, social safety nets, and legal system. Watch the crime spike. If Democrats love illegal aliens so much, let them take care of the resulting fallout

Time Running Out to Avoid Government Shutdown as Talks Falter

Time is running out to avoid a second partial government shutdown, as congressional talks about border-security funding broke down during the weekend in the latest dispute over detention beds for immigrants.

Negotiations could still get back on track in the next 24 hours, and negotiators may decide that a stopgap funding extension past Friday is necessary. But the prospect of getting an agreement by Friday’s deadline seems to have derailed, just as negotiators had hoped to unveil a deal Monday to set up votes in the House and Senate this week.

The sticking point is over the number and purpose of immigration detention beds. Democrats are seeking a cap to force U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, to detain criminals rather than undocumented immigrants with no criminal history. Republicans are resisting a limit on grounds that criminals shouldn’t count toward it and ICE should have discretion.

They are all criminals for simply crossing the border illegally/overstaying their visas. The minimum penalty is a small fine and deportation, per federal law. How many of them are involved in identity theft in order to work? How many commit misdemeanors like driving while intoxicated? Driving without a license and/or insurance? The very fact is that federal law says they shouldn’t be here.

You can bet these same ICE deranged Democrats would have you arrested if you trespassed on their own property.

There are currently 40,520 ICE immigration detention beds funded by Congress. Heading into the talks, the White House sought to increase the number to 52,000, while Democrats wanted a reduction to 35,520. Democrats have proposed a 16,500 cap on beds to be used for interior enforcement, with the rest to be used for those captured at the border, according to people familiar with the talks.

“For far too long, the Trump administration has been tearing communities apart with its cruel immigration policies,” said Democratic Representative Lucille Roybal-Allard of California, a member of the conference committee.

“A cap on ICE detention beds will force the Trump administration to prioritize deportation for criminals and people who pose real security threats, not law-abiding immigrants who are contributing to our country.”

Every day they’re here they’re breaking the law.

But Republicans are pushing back that Democrats are seeking to limit the number of beds available for violent criminals.

“That would incentivize illegal immigration and undercut anything you did on the wall,” Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Everything Democrats do is to incentivize illegal immigration. The thing is, that reduction in beds would actually mean that as many as 8,300 criminal illegal aliens, the ones who have committed serious crimes, would have to be released.

The letter warned, “Any legislation that reduces ICE’s detention capacity would hinder its ability to perform its national security and public safety missions, but also impact local law enforcement’s ability to protect the communities they serve. In order to meet the cap being tentatively proposed by Congress, ICE would be compelled to release thousands of aliens from custody.”

The correspondence noted, “Over 90 percent of ICE’s arrests are aliens who have a criminal conviction, have been arrested for a criminal, or have been previously removed. Placing a cap on ICE detention beds will undermine the efficacy of the immigration system and reduce the number of aliens who are removed from the United States.”

Release them at the homes of Democratic lawmakers.

    Just because tRump is a hypocrite for hiring illegal workers (he still employs many) doesn’t mean he is wrong on immigration, although he is.

    His bombast directed at immigrants is a ruse to fire up his xenophobic base. Why did tRump choose immigration as America’s most daunting problem, ignoring global warming, the widening gap between rich and poor, flat wages, massive debt…? He correctly saw that 35% of the population would follow him no matter what, as long as he agreed with them on minorities, abortion, science and religion.

      Harvey is beating the drum for something nobody but Yahoo News cares about, plus the fact he has yet to prove Trump is personally responsible.

      Why did tRump choose immigration as America’s most daunting problem, ignoring global warming, the widening gap between rich and poor, flat wages, massive debt…?

      Because most of the rest of the public sees it that way. The public is ignoring global warming because they see it’s a scam and Trump is closing the widening gap between rich and poor, getting people back to work, and doing as much as he can to fix the massive debt Zippy and the Demos gave us until Social Security and the rest of the entitlements collapse.

      He correctly saw that 35% of the population would follow him no matter what, as long as he agreed with them on minorities, abortion, science and religion.

      Well, those are American values he espouses and that 35% (her’s doing better than Zippy was at this point in his Maladministration) is his floor. He will not go below it and he keeps building on it every day.

      All the Demos have a ceiling, but there’s no limit to how low they can go.

      Let’s see-complain about the gap between the rich and poor while at the same time criticizing Trump for focusing on illegal immigration. Of course, letting in more of the un-educated and low skilled will simply increase that said gap, but we’re dealing with liberal economics so that’s no big surprise. And still waiting to hear what the “daunting problem of global warming” is.

    Will tRump shut down the gov’t again in a snit? Maybe!

    Perhaps he will sign a bill keeping the gov’t open but then declare a fake national emergency.

    • formwiz says:

      The snit is Pelosi Galore’s, along with most of the rest of the loonies. Trump tried to make a deal and the Demos, as Teach notes, went looking for an excuse to turn it down.

      He has a legal right to declare a national emergency, thanks to a bill the Demos passed.

      And I still don’t see many Americans complaining about the Feds shutting down.

      Ya love it, right?
