Conservative Review: Trump already has the power to stop anyone at our border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 18, 2018

Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review lays it out for us.  President Trump already has all the power he needs to close our borders.

Presumably inspired by all the news about a now 4,000-strong migrant caravan heading toward Mexico with the apparent aim to assault our southern border (see my post yesterday), Horowitz says this (emphasis is mine):

 

President Trump has full constitutional power to stop the border invasion – even without Congress

 

Just as President Reagan is remembered for ending the Cold War, President Trump can be remembered as the one who ended the war on our sovereignty. Will he rise to the occasion?

trump wall thumbs up

The wall will be meaningless if we continue to allow fake asylum seekers in through the gates!

Here’s the stone-cold truth about our border: We could construct a border wall as high as the stratosphere, and it won’t help much if we continue our self-destructing policies of allowing bogus asylees to come through our front door and legitimizing the opinions of sanctuary judges who “make denizens of aliens.”

President Trump publicly warned the governments of Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala that if they don’t take steps to stop the latest caravan of bogus asylum invaders, he will cut off aid to the countries. While this is a good first step, it won’t deter the invasion unless we stop admitting the invaders and implementing catch-and-release under orders from illegitimate court rulings, as we did with the previous caravan and countless tens of thousands of others coming in with less pomp. And that would hold true even with a border wall. They just come to our points of entry, surrender themselves, get released into our communities, and never show up to their hearings until and unless they wind up committing crimes.

Moreover, the caravan is already in Guatemala and headed for Mexico. Thus, the Honduran diplomacy is moot at this point. And this is much bigger than one caravan. We must first dissect what is actually happening at our border.

This is nothing short of an invasion

Earlier this week, KTAR news in Phoenix, Arizona, sat down with ICE’s Phoenix field director, Henry Lucero. What he revealed should disturb all of us:

See the revelations here.

Then this…..

Thus, it all boils down to bogus asylum and catch-and-release. Either Trump ends those, or everything else is just talk. While Trump is right to ask Congress to step in, we’ve noted before that our statute is already clear that these people do not qualify as asylees and that the unaccompanied teenagers do not qualify as refugees.

With this background in mind, it’s easy to understand why Lindsey Grahmanesty’s idea of trading amnesty for a border wall is so counterintuitive. We only have this border invasion because of the magnet of amnesty, and the magnet of amnesty allows them to come to the entry points, demand asylum, sue for rights, and never get deported. A wall only helps a country that has a strong spirit but a weak frontier; it doesn’t help a weak political system that willingly commits national suicide.

Anyone who tells you that the president doesn’t have the authority to exclude anyone for any reason doesn’t deserve to live in a sovereign nation.

Sovereignty trumps everything. There is nothing in our statutes that forces the president to admit anyone he feels is a problem. In fact, as we’ve noted before, he has inherent executive powers from Article II, as well as delegated authority from Congress under existing law, to stop taking in immigrants at the border or through visas for as much time as he deems necessary.

There is much more here as Horowitz lays out the case.

Conservative Score Card

If you have never seen it, don’t miss Conservative Review’s Congressional score card and see how your representatives rank on issues you care about.  Go here.  You might find that an elected official you thought was conservative might not be voting that way once he or she got to Washington!

  6. Frankly, every American has the Constitutional Authority to protect the borders, especially if that authority AS DELEGATED IN EXPECTATION OF BEING DUTIFULLY RENDERED IN ACTION is NOT taken. So he had BETTER do that, or we will have plain and open proof of one of either of two things (or both):

    He is not faithful to the defense of the Constitution and therefore is a traitor to the people, and a dishonor to the Republic and his office.
    He is not in control of the functions of his office.

  7. I would like to see President Trump point out the fact that we have a limited amount of resources here, and that they have been exceeded.Part of the problem is that there seems to be an attitude that we can keep taking these people in perpetually, and that there should be no limit to either the amount of people who can apply or be taken in. There are simply too many asylum seekers so we should just shut the program down until we can deal rewrite the requirements and restructure the process, or evaluate rather or not to continue to allow asylum at all.

    Very true, I believe President Trump does have the power to end this invasion…from ALL directions.
    The last paragraph gives a link to the Conservative Review’s Congressional score card, something I didn’t know about before.
