Immigration battle puts nail in abortion rights movement

Immigration — and the anti-choice, Ortega/Chavez/Maduro “left” — has already destroyed the U.S. abortion rights movement, since there hasn’t been a major March for Choice in over a decade and the date, Jan. 22, is now remembered by U.S. feminists as the Trump inauguration, instead of the anniversary of Roe.

The immigrant vote has already traded abortion funding for Obamacare maternity care funding and without a major, single-issue abortion rights movement, the immigrant “left” will similarly trade away choice itself. 

The Immocrat refusal to trade the wall for abortion funding makes the end of choice inescapable.

Meadows, Trump praised for standing strong on wall 

President Trump and Congressman Mark Meadows stand shoulder to shoulder with fellow Americans to secure a border wall and for good reasons.  

In 2017 and 2018, roughly 235,000 illegal immigrants were arrested on various criminal charges which included 100,000 for assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 homicides.  

Ninety percent of the heroin in the U.S. that comes through our porous southern border, fuels the opioid epidemic destroys families and kills thousands. In the past two years, more Americans have died from opioid overdoses than in the Vietnam War! 

Worse, human smugglers exploit our immigration system for profit.  One in three migrant women are sexually assaulted on the way to our porous border.  

Then there is the astronomical cost to American citizens. Sixty-three percent of non-citizen households access welfare programs compared to 35 percent of native households. Taxpayers shelled out approximately $134 billion at the federal, state, and local level to cover the costs of more than 12.5 million illegal aliens, and about 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens. 

The taxpayer burden is $8,075 per illegal alien family for a total of $115,894,664 This is the fleecing of the American taxpayer! 

 Obstruction ahead of safety, security, and our nation’s sovereignty is irresponsible, immoral and a breach of the oath to protect and defend our nation.

Thank you, President Trump and my Congressman Mark Meadows — the bulwarks protecting our sovereignty, safety and sacred trust.

Trump’s ‘sky-is-falling’ ploy failing with most in the U.S.

Where are those thousands of terrorists, drug-smugglers and assorted bad guys ready to invade our nation?

Indeed they are a figment of President (Donald) Trump’s imagination.

The American people are waking up to his daily barrage of lies and misinformation.

The president would do well to forget about his Wall and use the $30 billion to restore funding to the EPA, education, veteran affairs, senior citizens, Medicare and Medicaid and other programs so vital to our survival.

Border security?

Use our returning troops to guard against illegal immigration. In his childish manner, Trump sees this Wall as part of his legacy and is willing to let this great nation plunge into chaos if he doesn’t get his way.

Our legislators must not let this happen by standing up to our man-child president and telling him there is no “National Emergency” and then get him to the table or someone with the ability to negotiate a deal that is fair to all sides and especially the American people.

As it looks now, it doesn’t seem feasible given the president’s temper tantrums and unwillingness to sit down and work with both sides simply because “Little Donnie” must have that Wall.

We can’t afford this disgraceful and embarrassing scenario to continue much longer.

Moral decline of America only can be stopped by God

Only intervention from God can stop the moral decline of America. The hoopla about the historical significance of the election of (Nancy) Pelosi as speaker of the House will pass, but there will be consequences, unless there is a change of heart.

Nancy Pelosi, “America’s most powerful woman,” is accountable to God, like everybody else. She has served in Congress for 32 years. Some have probably been there longer!

A new heart from God would make her realize that America murdering over 2,000 unborn babies daily is a horrible thing to be doing!

And since she believes “she is a super legislator,” she should introduce a law to ban abortion. After all, obeying God is what we are to be doing.

American laws are to be made by the legislative branch, not the Supreme Court.

Therefore, when the Supreme Court exceeds their authority, it is the legislative branch which should reverse the intrusion.

But in several other cases too, the Supreme Court has exceeded a much higher authority, God.In those cases, they need to be reversed too.God would have to change many stony hearts to bring that about.
