US gov’t is attempting to seize private land in Texas for border wall


IF PRESIDENT TRUMP WANTS TO BUILD A WALL HELLO WILL HAVE TO BUILD A SOLID LEGAL TEAM FIRST. THE WHITE HOUSE WAS HOPING TO BEGIN CONSTRUCTION ON 966 MILES OF BORDER WALL THIS YEAR, BUT MANY PRIVATE AND LAND OWNERS ARE FIGHTING THE GOVERNMENT ATTEMPT TO SEIZE THEIR LAND. THE STANDOFF COULD LEAVE TO A PROTRACTED COURT BATTLE THAT HINDERS THE PRESIDENT’S QUEST TO FULFILL HIS SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN PROMISE NOT TO MENTION ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR THINGS AT RALLIES. BUILD THE WALL. CAN THE PRESIDENT AND ITS TEXT IS TO CONVINCE TEXAS TO PLAY BALL ON THE WALL? OR WILL HE WIN OR LOSE IN COURT. JOINING ME NOW CHIEF OF EVERYTHING.>>KENNEDY HOW ARE YOU.>>WERE GOING TO LUNCH. HI WELCOME BACK. SO LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS. BECAUSE THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU AND I HAVE TALKED ABOUT AND WE’VE SEEN IT COMING FOR A LONG TIME. BECAUSE TEXAS LANDOWNERS ARE DIFFERENT THAN LANDOWNERS THROUGHOUT THE U.S. TELL ME HOW.>>I’VE BEEN TOLD THAT WE HAVE BEEN TOLD NOT TO MESS WITH THEM. THAT’S WHAT THEY’VE HEARD ABOUT TEXAS. THIS IS A TOTALLY PREDICTABLE FLAW IN A BAD PLAN. THIS IS KIND OF A SIGNATURE MOVE FOR THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO HAVE A TOTALLY PRINTABLE FLAW TO BAD PLAN. BUT THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOUGHT LANDS ON THE BORDER, THESE ARE JUST ORDINARY AMERICANS WHO WANTED TO BUILD A HOUSE, THEY WANT TO LIVE THERE THE NOT BOTHERING ANYONE. AND SUDDENLY THEY ARE BEING TOLD FIRST OF ALL HAPTIC GIVE THE GOVERNMENT TOTAL ACCESS TO THEIR PROPERTY FOR 12 TO 18 MONTHS WHICH IS RIDICULOUS.>>CAN YOU IMAGINE A BUNCH OF PENCIL PUSHERS FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT POKING AROUND YOUR LAND?>>I LIVE IN WASHINGTON D.C. SO I CAN IMAGINE THAT. SO ONCE THAT HAPPENS THEY ARE GOING TO BE OFFERED AN UNFAIR PRICE THAT THEY DON’T WANT TO TAKE FOR A LAND THEY DON’T WANT TO SELL ALL THE NAME OF BUILDING A WALL THAT’S NOT GONNA WORK.>>SO HOW MUCH IS THE GOVERNMENT LEGALLY OBLIGATED TO OFFER LANDOWNERS?>>SO THIS IS ONE OF THINGS THAT IMMEDIATELY DESCENDS INTO AN ABSENTLY MOCK. THEY ARE OBLIGATED TO A FAIR PRICE BUT THAT CAN BE DIFFERENT FOR DIFFERENT LANDOWNERS. AND AN INVESTIGATION WAS DONE THAT FOUND POOR PEOPLE ARE MUCH MORE LIKELY TO JUST TAKE THE INITIAL OFFER. THEY DON’T HAVE RESOURCES TO HIRE LAWYERS, THEREOF WAYS TO FIGHT BACK, THEY DON’T KNOW HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS. SO NOT ONLY IS IT HURTING PRIVATE LANDOWNERS AT THE BORDER WHO DON’T WANT TO OWN THEIR OWN BUSINESS. IT’S HURTING POOR PEOPLE MORE.>>THAT’S NOT SURPRISING CONSIDERING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S TRACK RECORD IN THIS REALM. AND IT’S SAD PEOPLE HAVEN’T SEEN THE MOVIE LITTLE PINK HOUSE.>>IN FACT THEY WISH MORE PEOPLE WERE MORE AWARE OF THIS. EMINENT DOMAIN IS OFTEN CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BASIC POWERS OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THEY IMAGINE SOMEONE WANTS TO BUILD A HIGHWAY AND WOULD LITTLE OLD LADIES HOUSES IN THE WAY, OKAY SHE HAS TO MAKE A COMPROMISE. BUT IN FACT THAT COMPROMISE THAT POWERS BEING USED ALL THE TIME IN A WIDE ARRAY OF SERVICES. IN THIS CASE BUILDING A BORDER WALL AND THE PEOPLE ALONG THAT PROPERTY DON’T AGREE WITH IT.>>NV THINK ABOUT IF THERE ARE SEVERAL TRACTS OF LANDS PUT TOGETHER THEY SAY HAD CHAIN IS ONLY AS STRONG AS ITS WEAKEST LINK, THAT’S WHAT I’M TOLD CATHERINE. SO IF A FEW OF THE LAND OWNERS DECIDE TO SELL TO THE GOVERNMENT IN ONE OR TWO DON’T, YOU JUST HAVE A NICE LITTLE SPOT WITH NO WALL.>>UNFORTUNATELY THAT IS EXACTLY WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS IN A TAKE IT BY FORCE.>>THE GOVERNMENT IS TAKING, AND THE END ALL THIS IS BEEN DONE AT THE END OF A GUN.

How sanctuary cities actually work


When we think about sanctuary cities, we tend to imagine, depending on our political view, either lawless cesspools where federal law is utterly ignored; pretty much the definition of anarchy human sacrifices, rapes, murders, Satan worshippers American lives are being lost they are breaking the law, they are harboring fugitives this is absolutely nuts or havens for one of the nation’s most marginalized groups. You are safe in Chicago. This is about human beings, families. and will continue to be a place of refuge But, in reality, neither of those descriptions quite fit. And to understand why, you have to put yourself in the shoes of a local police officer. These policies are different in different places. In Chicago, it means city employees aren’t supposed to share residents immigration status with other people. In Washington DC, it means police officers are barred from asking residents about their immigration status. But often, it comes down to this: how does the local police officer handle an unauthorized immigrant that he’s already arrested for some other reason? Let’s say a cop pulls someone over for speeding. The cop notices this person has an unpaid speeding ticket, and they missed their day in court. So, the cop arrests the person, books them into the local jail. While they wait for someone to post bail, the person gets fingerprinted. That’s part of the booking process. Those fingerprints then get sent to an FBI database, and then a database kept by Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE. That step is mandatory. Whether or not a city calls itself a sanctuary city, it still has to send those fingerprints through the FBI database. If the fingerprints match up with someone who ICE knows is an unauthorized immigrant, they might send the local cops holding this person something called a detainer request. The detainer request is just that: it’s a request. The federal government is asking, not demanding, that police hold that person for an extra 48 hours after they would normally be released. That gives ICE time to come by, pick them up, start the deportation process. Now, ICE can’t force local law enforcement to hold someone and just by sending one of these detainer requests. The Constitution’s Tenth Amendment prohibits state governments from having to enforce federal law. And some federal courts have decided that detainer requests fall into that category. So, if you’re a local police chief or sheriff, and you get one of these requests, you have a choice. Do you honor the request? Or do you let the person go? Let’s say you honor the request and keep the person in jail for an extra 48 hours. Ice comes to pick them up, and they get deported. Word gets out around the immigrant community: any time you interact with local police, it could mean deportation. Eventually, immigrants will be afraid to call the police, even when they’re the victims of crime, or the witnesses to it. And then, immigrants become easy targets. Because the bad guys know that many immigrants will not call the police. For a local police chief, this is a big problem. It’s impossible to do their jobs when they don’t have people’s trust. Five hundred thousand Angelenos, people who live in Los Angeles, are undocumented immigrants. I need their cooperation. I need them work with their local police stations. I need them to be witnesses to violent crime. What about the other option? What happens if you ignore the order, and let this person go home? First, there’s no guarantee that they won’t get deported anyway. Whether a city considers itself a sanctuary or not, local law enforcement can’t stop ICE from deporting someone. Think of the levels of government like rungs on a ladder. You have the federal government at the top level; that includes agencies like ICE. You have the state government: governors, legislatures, in the middle. And then, at the bottom, you have local government: mayors, police chiefs, sheriffs. If the federal government issues a detainer request, and the local police department refuses to accept it, the state government can step in by taking away one of the state funding streams from the local police. That’s what happened in Texas in 2017. The governor of the great state of Texas, Greg Abbott, has declared he will sign a law banning sanctuary cities. He’s already issued an order that cuts funding to those sanctuary cities. This is dangerous and I will not allow it as governor of Texas. This map shows the counties in red that always cooperate with ICE, and the ones that don’t; those are an orange, yellow, and green. The green counties have the most restrictions on when they cooperate with ICE detainer requests. In late January 2017, shortly after he got into office, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that opens the door to withholding federal funds from sanctuary cities or counties. The wording of that order is vague, and it’s already being challenged in federal court. But if Trump’s plan does move forward, it could put local law enforcement officers across the country in a lose-lose situation. For them, deciding whether to honor a detainer request is often about choosing between financial security on one hand, and public safety on the other. you

Trump suspends tariff threat, criticized for immigration deal with Mexico


COUNTRY. STEVE HARRIGAN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LELAND: ALL RIGHT, DEMOCRATIC RESPONSE ALL OF THIS WE EARLIER HEARD FROM REPUBLICAN, IS BEEN JOHN ROSE, WE BRING IN NEW JERSEY, SMITH, MEMBER OF HOUSE AGRICULTURAL COMMITTEE AND THE BLUE DOG COALITION, NICE TO SEE YOU, SIR. AS ALWAYS, APPRECIATED. YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE PROBLEM SOLVERS COALITION AS I UNDERSTAND IT. PROBLEM SOLVED HERE FOR THE PRESIDENT? HE HAS GOT BIG AGREEMENTS FOR MEXICO TO DO STUFF TO TRY TO STOP THE FLOW OF MIGRANTS. AND NO TARIFFS, WHAT IS TO COMPLAIN ABOUT?>>I’M NOT COMPLAINING. IN FACT, IT MAY BE A LITTLE BIT OF AN UNUSUAL ELECTED OFFICIAL AND UNUSUAL CONGRESSMAN THAT I DO NOT TAKE PLEASURE WHEN SOMEONE ELSE FAILS, PARTICULARLY IN OUR GOVERNMENT. BECAUSE QUITE FRANKLY, IF THE PRESIDENT FAILS AT SOMETHING, THEN WE ALL FAIL IN THE COUNTRY. THIS SEEMS TO HAVE WORKED OUT. MEXICO SHOULD BE PART OF ANY AGREEMENT THAT WE HAVE. MEXICO SHOULD BE HELPING, MEXICO SHOULD BE PART OF THE PROCESS. THEY HAVE STRONG BORDERS THEMSELVES, THEY UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF HAVING A BORDER AND I THINK THE FACT THAT THEY ARE NOW UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT IT TOO IS HELPFUL. THIS WHOLE IMMIGRATION SITUATION FROM BEGINNING TO END HAS MANY PIECES TO IT. I BELIEVE THAT ALL OF IT COULD BE WORKED OUT. FOR THE FOLKS THAT ARE HERE AND UNDOCUMENTED, FOR THE DACA FOLKS, DREAMERS, AND ALSO FOR THE OPEN BORDERS, WE NEED TO DEAL WITH ALL OF THESE ISSUES AND IN A COMBINED WAY. MOST OF ALL, WE REALLY NEED TO HAVE A BETTER IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. THAT IS NOT A REPUBLICAN — LELAND: EVERYONE AGREES THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM, CONGRESSMAN. THE QUESTION, HOW TO GET THE ANSWER AS YOU POINT OUT, YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON THIS IS SHALL WE SAY, UNUSUAL. IN FACT I’VE NOT HEARD THEM DEMOCRATS SO FAR PRAISE THE PRESIDENT FOR HOW HE HAS DEALT WITH THE SITUATION VIS-C-VIS TARIFFS, MEXICO AND IMMIGRATION. IT BEGS THE QUESTION, WOULD YOU SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT GO TO THE BRINK AGAIN AND DO SUPPORT MEXICO TO THE BRINK WITH CHINA RIGHT NOW? ON TARIFFS, AND TRYING TO GET A BETTER DEAL FROM THE CHINESE AS WELL?>>EVERY SITUATION IS DIFFERENT. YOU HAVE TO EVALUATE THEM INDIVIDUALLY. THERE ARE THE DEMOCRATS I THINK WE SHOULD DO SOMETHING. SOME OF THE FOLKS IN THE BLUE DOGS, SOME OF THE FOLKS IN THE PROBLEM SOLVERS TEND TO BE MORE MODERATE. HE JUST CANNOT HAVE OPEN BORDERS WHERE ANYONE CAN COME IN ANYTIME. I LOVE IMMIGRATION, I BELIEVE IN IMMIGRATION. I BELIEVE IN LEGAL IMMIGRATION. AS FAR AS CHINA IS CONCERNED WE DO HAVE TO PLAY HARD BECAUSE CHINA WITHOUT QUESTION WAS TO BE THE NUMBER ONE POWER IN THE WORLD. AND AS YOU KNOW, THEY MANIPULATE THEIR MONEY AND THEY HAVE TECHNOLOGICALLY STOLEN A LOT OF WHAT WE HAVE. AND THEY HAVE CERTAINLY BEEN A FORCE HAS BEEN DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH AND I THINK THAT WE HAVE TO SHOW THEM THAT WE ARE PLAYING FOR REAL. THAT WE WANT TO BE FAIR AND WHAT WE ALWAYS SAY, FAIR AND OPEN TRADE. I DO NOT WANT THE UNISYS ALWAYS GET THE SHORT END OF THE STICK.>>THE PRESIDENT SAID THE SAME THING. HE IS GONE CRITICISM FOR THE DEAL MADE WITH MEXICO TO AVOID THESE TARIFFS AND THAT THE LANGUAGE FROM THE MEXICANS LEAVES A LOT UNSPECIFIED IF THEY’RE GOING TO TAKE NEW AND DRASTIC MEASURES, THEY’RE GOING TO DO ALL OF THE THINGS BIT A LOT OF ADJECTIVES, NOT A LOT OF HARD FACTS AND FIGURES OTHER THAN 6000 TROOPS TO THE BORDER. DO YOU THINK THIS SHOWS STRENGTH TO THE CHINESE? DOES IT SHOW WEAKNESS AS THE CHINA PROBLEM SORT OF DWARFS THE MEXICO PROBLEM AS IT RELATES TO THE ECONOMICS OF THE COUNTRY?>>EVERY TIME WE SHOW STRENGTH, I THINK THAT IS ALWAYS GOOD IF IT IS –>>WAS A SHOWING STRENGTH OR THE PRESIDENT CAVED?>>NO, I MEAN I THINK IS SHOWING STRENGTH. AND I THINK WHETHER IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO WHEN TEDDY ROOSEVELT SAID SPEAK SOFTLY BUT CARRY A BIG STICK OR JFK, WE HAVE HAD, REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTS THAT HAVE UNDERSTOOD AT TIMES, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA MUST SHOW WHAT I WILL CALL INTELLIGENCE STRENGTH. YOU HAVE TO BE THOUGHTFUL BUT WE HAVE TO SHOW THE STRENGTH. THIS IS A REAL ISSUE. CHINA AND RUSSIA ARE REAL ISSUES IN THE WORLD AND REALLY AND TRULY WANT TO MOVE FORWARD AND WANT TO BE THE POWERHOUSES OF THE WORLD. QUITE FRANKLY I THINK IT IS THEIT SHOULD BE. LELAND: CONGRESSMAN, WE THANK YOU. WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE ON THE AGRICULTURAL COMMITTEE WE HOPE TO GO TO THAT. NO MATTER WHAT POLITICAL PARTY PEOPLE ARE IN. WE THANK YOU FOR JOINING US PUTTING ON A SEAT WHILE IT IS NICE AND SUNNY OUTSIDE. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THE REST OF THE DAY.

Brandon Judd: Mexico is becoming true border patrol partners


SUPREME COURT RULING IN FAVOR OF THE ADMINISTRATION’S ENFORCEMENT OF RESTRICTIONS ON ASYLUM SEEKERS TRAVELING THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY LIKE MEXICO. IT REQUIRES THEM TO SEEK PROTECTION THERE INSTEAD OF IN THE U.S. THE PRESIDENT LINK IS A BIG WIN FOR THE BORDER. LET’S BRING IN BORDER PATROL COUNCIL PRESIDENT BRANDON. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. HOW DOES THIS IMPACT IMMIGRATION NUMBERS AT THE BORDER?>>THIS IS A MAJOR WIN BUT NOT SURPRISING. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE DECISION THAT WE ARE ONLY TWO JUDGES, WE KNOW THAT THE SUPREME COURT IS MADE UP OF FOUR LEVELS AND FIVE CONSERVATIVES. YOU ONLY HAD TWO OF THE LIBERAL CONTINGENTS THAT OPPOSE — I’M SORRY, THIS IS GOING TO DRIVE THE NUMBERS DOWN. WE SAW THAT IN APRIL 2017 WHEN WE HIT 45 YEAR LOWS UNDER TRUMP. IT WAS PREDICATED UPON THE FACT THAT INDIVIDUALS THOUGHT THEY WERE TO BE HELD PENDING THIRD DEPORTATION PROCEEDING IF THEY NOW CAN’T ENTER THE U.S., CLAIM ASYLUM AND GET RELIEF FROM THEY ARE JUST NOT GOING TO COME TO THE U.S. THE LOOPHOLES THEY WERE EXPLOITING, WITH A MAGNET THAT DREW PEOPLE HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. NOW THAT THE MAIN THING IS GOING TO BE REMOVED, LESS PEOPLE WELCOME.>>THE PRESIDENT RECENTLY SET IN MEXICO, THREATENED MEXICO WITH TARIFFS IF THEY DO NOT DO SOMETHING ABOUT IMMIGRATION AT THEIR BORDERS AND MEXICO AGREED. I WANT TO ASK YOU WHAT MEXICO HAS BEEN DOING TO HELP THE SITUATION OUT? HOW HAVE THE NUMBERS GONE BECAUSE OF THAT?>>AND THREE SHORT MONTHS, WE DROPPED IN APPREHENSIONS BY NEARLY 100,000. IN MAY OF THIS YEAR, THE BORDER PATROL, NOT THE PORT OF ENTRY FOR THE BORDER PATROL ALONE APPREHENDED CLOSE TO 133,000 INDIVIDUALS. IN AUGUST, WE WERE DOWN TO, RIGHT AROUND 51000. YOU THINK ABOUT MEXICO HAS STEPPED UP, THEY ARE BECOMING TRUE BORDER SECURITY PARTNERS AND THIS IS THE FIRST PRESIDENT IN MY CAREER THAT I’VE EVER SEEN GET MEXICO TO ACTUALLY STEP TO THE PLATE AND DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO TO BE PARTNERS WITH THE U.S. AND TRYING TO SECURE BOTH THEIR COUNTRY AND OUR COUNTRY AS WELL.>>THIS IS A BIG WIN FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. YOU ALSO SEE THE LEVEL OF IMPACT WHICH IN RESPECT TO LEGAL DRUGS CROSSING THE BORDER AND OTHER ISSUES WE EXPERIENCE AT THE BORDER IN TERMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING?>>THIS IS ACTUALLY GOING TO HELP. ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WE FACE IS, WHEN YOU HAVE ASYLUM-SEEKERS COMING ACROSS THE BORDER, THEY TAKE UP ALL LOT OF OUR RESOURCES. WE HAVE TO DEPLOY RESOURCES TO THE AREAS WHERE THEY CROSS THE BORDER. WE TAKE THEM BACK TO OUR PROCESSING CENTERS AND PROCESS THEM. AS ALL TAKES RESOURCES AND WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT THE CRIMINAL CARTELS, THEY FORCE THESE ASYLUM SEEKERS TO HIT US IN CERTAIN AREAS AND WHEN WE TAKE OUR RESOURCES OUT, IT CREATES ARTIFICIAL GAPS IN THE BORDER AND ALLOWS THE CRIMINAL CARTELS TO CROSS THEIR HIGHER VALUED PRODUCTS. OPIOID OR ILLICIT DRUGS THEY ARE ABLE TO GET ACROSS THERE PRODUCT. NOW THAT WE ARE REMOVING ASYLUM-SEEKERS, IT’S GOING TO BE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR CARTELS TO GET THERE PRODUCTS ACROSS THE BORDER.>>THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. THE QUESTION OF LEGALITY, YES, THANK TEMPORARILY IMPOSE IT BUT THEY RULE WHETHER IT’S LEGAL OR NOT, IF YOU LOOK AT THE REQUIREMENT, YOU NEED TO ALLOW COMMENTS, DID YOU THINK THIS COULD BE STRUCK DOWN?>>NO, I DON’T. IF IT WAS GOING TO GET STRUCK DOWN, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN STRUCK DOWN IN THE END. ONE OF THE JUSTICES I BELIEVE IT WAS RUTH BADER GINSBURG, SHE QUESTIONS LEGALITY BECAUSE OF THE PUBLIC REPORTING. NONE OF THE OTHER JUDGES FOUND THAT SO I DON’T THINK IT WILL GET STRUCK DOWN. IF IT IS, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT WITHIN THE LAWS TO DETERMINE HOW THEY ARE GOING TO IMPLEMENT AND ENFORCE THE LAWS AND THE COURTS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE DIFFERENTIAL AS LONG AS THEY DO NOT GO OUTSIDE THOSE LAWS. I DON’T BELIEVE THEY DID GO OUTSIDE WITH THAT NEW ROLE.>>THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US AND THANK YOU FOR DOING ALL YOU DO TO PROTECT US. YOU TALK ABOUT THIS, THERE’S STILL FEWER IMMIGRANTS COMING IN, THINK ABOUT HOW IMMIGRATION HAS MADE CENTURY, ALL IMMIGRANTS, DO YOU WORRY ABOUT PERHAPS SOME OF THE GREAT WORKERS FROM THE GREAT INNOVATORS THAT AREN’T ABLE TO COME IN BECAUSE OF THE WALL OR RULES LIKE THIS THAT MAKE IMMIGRATION DIFFICULT?>>WHEN YOU LOOK AT LEGAL IMMIGRATION, WE ARE ALL FOR THAT. WE ALL WANT LEGAL IMMIGRATION. WE WANT THESE GREAT MINDS TO COME HERE. WE WANT THEM TO DO IT LEGALLY. WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AS FAR AS THIS, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. PEOPLE WERE CROSSING THE BORDER IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW.

Brandon Judd slams dems for backing sanctuary cities


AND MURDERERS WHO SHOULDN’T EVEN BE IN THIS COUNTRY.>>>A CALIFORNIA SHERIFF WANTS IMMIGRATION REFORM CLAIMING SANCTUARY POLICIES ALLOWED A VIOLENT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT TO GO FREE AND THEN LATER SHOOT ONE OF HIS DEPUTIES. MERCED COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE SAYS GUADALUPE LOPEZ HERERA WAS IN THEIR CUSTODY IN JANUARY, BUT BECAUSE STATE LAWMAKERS LIMITED THEIR COOPERATION WITH I.C.E., DEPUTIES COULDN’T TURN HIM OVER FOR DEPORTATION. THE SHERIFF HAD THIS TO SAY.>>OUR IMMIGRATION POLICIES NEED TO BE REVAMPED BECAUSE WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO HAVE MORE OF THIS SITUATION HAPPEN. WE KNEW AHEAD OF TIME THAT THIS GUY’S POTENTIAL FOR VIOLENCE WAS THERE. LOU: JOINING ME NOW, THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL BRANDON JUDD. GOOD TO SEE YOU. THE SHERIFF MAKES A POINT. IT’S A POINT WE HAVE HEARD MADE OVER AND OVER AND OVER IN THIS COUNTRY. SANCTUARY CITIES, ARE WE EVER GOING TO GET IN CONTROL OF THOSE SANCTUARY CITIES?>>WELL, I THINK THE ANSWER TO THAT IS OBVIOUSLY YES, BUT IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOMEBODY THAT IS NOT THE TYPICAL POLITICIAN. IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOMEBODY FROM THE OUTSIDE WHO IS WILLING TO STEP UP AN CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO. — AND CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO. THAT IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THE AMERICAN PUBLIC VOTED SO HEAVILY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. SO MANY PEOPLE FLOCKED TO THE POLLS BECAUSE THEY WERE TIRED OF THE STATUS QUO. THEY WERE TIRED OF TYPICAL POLITICIANS TO LET CHINA MOVE INTO THE BAHAMAS. THEY WERE TIRED OF TYPICAL POLITICIANS THAT ALLOW ILLEGAL ALIENS TO CROSS OUR BORDERS JUST ABSOLUTELY UNFETTERED AND RELEASE INTO THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE TIRED OF POLITICIANS THAT ALLOW FOR THESE SANCTUARY CITIES. LOU: YEAH, YOU WOULD THINK, BUT APPARENTLY CALIFORNIA IS ONE OF THOSE PLACES THAT WILL HAVE — I DON’T KNOW — THEY MAY DEFEND THE SANCTUARY CITIES TO THE DEATH OUT THERE. IT IS PECULIAR TO ME THAT A STATE THAT RICH AND SEEMINGLY WITH CITIZENS THAT SMART CAN BE THIS DUMB. IT’S JUST EXTRAORDINARY WHAT THEY ARE ASKING THEIR PEOPLE TO PUT UP WITH. BUT I WANT TO TURN REAL QUICKLY TO MONTGOMERY COUNTY.>>CERTAINLY. LOU: BLAMING THE CONSERVATIVE MEDIA, THE WHITE HOUSE, TOP IMMIGRATION OFFICIAL, BY THE WAY, FOR DRAWING ATTENTION TO A NUMBER OF SEXUAL ASSAULTS, RAPES, BY ILLEGAL ALIENS, SEVEN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, ALL OF THEM FROM CENTRAL AMERICA, AND THIS ELRICH IS GOING NUTS BECAUSE THE MEDIA COVERED IT, AS IF HE WANTS THEM TO COVER UP THE CONSEQUENCES OF THESE FAILED BORDER POLICIES, THESE FAILED IMMIGRATION POLICIES AND SANCTUARY CITY POLICIES.>>YEAH NORMALLY WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE THE FACTS ON YOUR SIDE, WHAT YOU START DOING IS YOU START NAME CALLING. YOU START TOSSING OUT XENO PHOBIA. YOU START TOSSING OUT THAT THE PRESIDENT IS RACIST. THIS CITY COUNCILMAN, HE HAS NO LOGICAL — I’M SORRY, ARGUMENT TO WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON, BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS IF HE WAS ACTUALLY WILLING TO ACTUALLY DEBATE CUCCINELLI, HE WOULD LOSE MISERABLY WHICH IS THE REASON WHY HE WON’T. LOU: HE WON’T. THERE’S ANOTHER MATTER TOO, INTEGRITY AND COURAGE, YOU DON’T TALK LIKE HE DID AND COME UP AGAINST A GUY LIKE CUCCINELLI.>>CERTAINLY. LOU: IT’S PREPOSTEROUS, BUT THE ARGUMENT THEY POSSESS IS SO PREPOSTEROUS, YOU WOULD BE DELIGHTED THAT IF JUST ONCE ACCIDENT TALLY THEY WOULD ACCEPT A CHALLENGE LIKE CUCCINELLI. SUSAN COLLINS, MITT ROMNEY, MIKE LEE, BRANDON, QUESTION THE PRESIDENT’S AUTHORITY TO USE NEARLY 4 BILLION DOLLARS TO BUILD A BORDER WALL. NOW, ROMNEY AND COLLINS AND LEE FANCY THEMSELVES SMART FOLKS. HOW COULD SMART FOLKS NOT BE AWARE THAT EVERY ADMINISTRATION IN THE RECENT ERA HAS ACTUALLY HAD TO REPROGRAM FUNDING AND HAS DONE SO AND THAT UNDER A NATIONAL EMERGENCY, WHICH THIS PRESIDENT DECLARED, IN FEBRUARY, IT’S ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL TO RESPOND, AND THAT IS WHAT HE’S DOING.>>YEAH, THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS SO DISAPPOINTING TO ME, TO SEE REPUBLICANS FIGHTING AGAINST OTHER REPUBLICANS, INSTEAD OF STANDING BEHIND THIS ADMINISTRATION AND WORKING WITH THIS ADMINISTRATION, TO DO WHAT’S RIGHT FOR THE AMERICAN PUBLIC. INSTEAD, ROMNEY AND LEE, SENATORS ROMNEY AND LEE, WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS THEY ARE LOOKING OUT FOR THEIR OWN STATE, RATHER THAN THE WELL BEING OF THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES. WE’VE GOT BEHIND — THE DEMOCRATS THEY ALL VOTE IN BLOCKS, YOU ALWAYS SEE THAT, YET REPUBLICANS ARE CONSTANTLY INFIGHTING WHICH IS WHY IT’S SO HARD TO GET — LOU: ROMNEY IS A BITTER LOSER FOR THE 2012 ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT. HE HATES THE FACT THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WON AND KEEPS WINNING AND NOW IS A HISTORIC PRESIDENT AND HE’S A HISTORIC LOSER. THAT KIND OF PETTY ENVY ON HIS PART IS NOT THE STUFF OF CHARACTER AND CERTAINLY IT APPEARS THE NATION AVOIDED A REAL DISASTER IF WE PUT THAT — ANOTHER PERSON OF HIS CHARACTER INTO THE WHITE HOUSE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AWFUL. MIKE LEE, HE SUPPORTS SENATE BILL 386. HE’S PUSHING THE BILL TO PROVIDE FAIRNESS FOR IMMIGRANTS RATHER THAN FOR AMERICAN WORKERS. HE WANTS MORE H 1B VISAS, DOUBLE THE AMOUNT. IT IS AN ASSAULT ON THE NATIONAL INTEREST, ON THE AMERICAN WORKER, OUR MIDDLE CLASS, AND SUSAN COLLINS, WHO I ABSOLUTELY COMPLIMENT, CONGRATULATE AND THANK FOR STANDING WITH JUSTICE KAVANAUGH AT HIS CONFIRMATION, BUT MY GOD, WHEN IN THE WORLD IS SHE GOING TO WISE UP AND FOLLOW THIS PRESIDENT?>>WELL, THE GOOD THING IS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT GOING TO TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT GOING TO LISTEN TO THE COMPLAINTS OF THESE THREE REPUBLICAN SENATORS. HE’S GOING TO PUSH FORWARD. HE’S GOING TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH HIS PROMISES, AND HE IS GOING TO SECURE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE’RE SEEING THAT RIGHT NOW. WE’RE SEEING HISTORIC DROPS IN ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION RIGHT NOW. LOU: RIGHT.>>IT IS STRICTLY BASED UPON PRESIDENT TRUMP NOT ACCEPTING NO FOR AN ANSWER, AND HE CONTINUES TO PUSH FORWARD, AND HE’S DOING IT BECAUSE HE CARES ABOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THAT’S WHY HE’S DOING IT. LOU: DO YOU THINK TONIGHT WOULD BE THE APPROPRIATE TIME TO INFORM THOSE THREE SENATORS, COLLINS AND ROMNEY AND LEE THAT THEY MIGHT LOOK TOWARD THE JUDGMENT OF THE SUPREME COURT, WHICH RULED THAT THE TRANSFERS OF SUCH MONEY AS THE PRESIDENT IS APPLYING TO THE BUILDING OF THAT WALL, TO RESPOND TO A NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND TO SECURE THE BORDER AS BEEN APPROVED BY THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES? DO YOU THINK THEY MIGHT HAVE TAKEN THAT INTO CONSIDERATION BEFORE THEY STARTED BRINGING THEIR NONSENSE DISLOYALLY SO? IT WAS A RHETORICAL QUESTION, BRANDON.>>THANK YOU. MIKE LEE WAS A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE IN UTAH. LOU: WAS HE REALLY?>>HE KNOWS ABOUT THAT. LOU: HE MUST JUST BE A — [INAUDIBLE].>>HE MIGHT BE, BUT AGAIN, IT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT GOING TO ACCEPT — LOU: I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT — TO BE CLEAR, THE LAST PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY THAT I WORRY ABOUT IS THE PRESIDENT STANDING FAST FOR PRINCIPLE, BECAUSE HE’S THE ONLY ONE I SEE IN THIS COUNTRY, RIGHT NOW, IN GOVERNMENT,
