Trump Should be Praised for Keeping out 500 criminal invaders

500 felony criminals tried to invade America under cover of “the caravan”. You think the people who stopped them would be praised. The open border crowd only whines that we need to be more compassionate. I say compassion is protecting your own people.

Do I believe in helping refugees, a welcoming immigration policy to those who respect our laws and traditions? Yes. I have the greatest respect for people who leave everything familiar to build a better life for themselves and their families. They make us better. That starts by respecting us enough to do it right. Importing random people including criminals is self destructive.

Many Mexicans feel the same way.

  1. The existing US immigration code pertaining to assylum was most probably intended for individuals seeking refuge — not preplanned organized mass economic migrations abusing the process.

    The entire US immigration system needs a massive overhaul to ensure an orderly process in the greater public interest instead of the current socio- political chaos.

  2. Do. You actually think democrats care? Heck no. It’s worth a chance for votes if you need to be a victim of a crime.

  3. Mr. von Baumgart is right about the need for overhaul, because the system was focused on treating humanitarian refuge.

    Alas, that system didn’t expect the massive flight of people seeking protection from economic forces unleashed by failed Central American governments.

    What to do? You cannot, Mr. von Baumgart, merely decry the flight, you actually have to get down in the trenches and come up with a solution. One of NAFTA’s points was to develop zones of economic activity in Mexico to divert Mexican economic refugees from sneaking across the border. Good idea if that was all that there was to it.

    Of course it wasn’t, alas.

    So where are you, Mr. von Baumgart, with new ideas? The world awaits, with bated breath.

  4. It’ s amazing how many people expect me to be an unpaid advisor when so many overpaid bureaucrats and political types whose job it is sit around and do nothing.

    However, clearly stating the problem is the first step in finding a solution in spite of the Ninth Circuit.

    Who knows? After completing some of my other political research , I might just download the relevant sections of the USC and propose fine tuning.
    The real problem is lobbying our current Congressional Delegation.

    Congress generally talks a good game , but fails to deliver, largely due to their bipolar conceptual limitations.
    [ See : “Limits to Politics” original essay on / Essays . ]

    However, I’d much rather work on alternative energy and chemical information theory. It’s much more fun.

  5. Actually, it did anticipate that. That is why it excluded economic refugees because we have several other programs to deal with them. We have no obligation to take everyone who has job problems It is not our responsibility to take every poor person in the world who wants to come here. Then we would be poor.

  6. Let’s see. Mr. von Baumgart is having more fun doing other things than getting involved in solutions he’s merely unhappy about. David Anderson accepts the value of NAFTA on economic refugees. End of discussion? Hope the newbies you’re bring in are a little more policy-oriented than this.

  7. It’s the classic Lifeboat Problem scaled up ten millionfold.

    “Faithful Skeptic” reminds me of my former Humanities professor who challenged the class to come up with a plan to acheive World Peace and promply left the room. The real irony is that most of the class could not even begin to articulate the problem in the short time allotted.

    I do not dally with major problems.
    In order to come up with viable solutions, I would literally have to drop everything else and concentrate for at least three months of intense unpaid activity only to have original ideas gather dust at the hands of the political establishment.

    Also, good collaborators are in short supply.

  8. Yes, Mr. von Baumgart, finding solutions is hard work. Framing the question is too Try this:

    (1) Analyze the big problem. (2) Break the analysis into smaller issues. (3) Pick one of those issues to work on. (4) Find others who will do the same with the remaining issues. (5) Meet to combine the results.

    You say you want to be paid for your work. No way will taxpayers pay for people who won’t focus on solutions.

    You won’t “dally” with problems, only complain that they’re not being solved to your satisfaction. You’re in the correct business, complaining.

    Here’s what Theodore Roosevelt said of you:

    ““It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

  9. 1) Damn good thing you lost.
    2) how do you know they were 500 felons? What evidence do you have?
    3) Have you ever experienced CS gas before? I did in the military. It’s a horrible thing to expose humans to.
    4) delete all of your online accounts

  10. Maybe we should retrain the CPB to throw rocks and bottles back.

    So, it was OK when tear gas and pepper spray was used during similar border incidents under the Obama Administration ?

    This isn’t new.

  11. They are hypocrites Cynical in Sussex. There are only three options, they are fools who would destroy this nation with open borders policies, they are ignorant of the way it has been done and the nature of tear gas, or they are hypocrites who condemn Trump unconditionally and change their view of right and wrong based upon that perspective. There is no sound basis in reason or history for their position.

  12. @Mathew Martin

    Be warned Mr. Martin, this blogsite does not allow personal attacks about one’s personal appearance.
    Be warned, stay on the subject and you will be fine, otherwise you will be banned!

  13. @Matthew Martin:

    David Anderson’s articles have teeth.

    That’s more than we can say about your comments that are more bark than bite.

  14. How about personal idiocy? We’ll ignore his jagged chompers.

    And there are 2 “T’s” in my name. I served this country. I deserve both consonants.

  15. @Matthew Martin
    Strike two, Matthew, the next ignorant personal attack you write, you will be banned

  16. David Anderson is trafficking in lies and fear-mongering. He won’t answer in regards to if he served or not and experienced CS gas, nor where his evidence of 500 felons is.

    Lastly, they showed up at the proper spot trying to do the right thing and got gassed for their troubles. Anderson doesn’t want to admit that, yet I bet he claims to be “Christian”.

    So threaten me all you want. It won’t change the truth.

  17. @Martin
    See, that was a great comment that included your opinion, which you are entitled to.

    Nobody here is threatening you, just want you to keep it clean.

  18. David Anderson is lying here.

    That makes him a liar.

    He has no honor. This is one reason why he lost. And why he’ll keep losing.

  19. Oh, really?

    Yesterday, an MS-13 member was arrested at the border.

    Statistically, a maximum of ten percent of prospective Central American asylum seekers actually qualify for asylum status.

    Check your facts before you post, Matthew.

  20. The underlying question is :

    Who initially organized and financed the caravans?

    Follow the money.

  21. Mythbuster. Use your real name.

    “an” MS13 Member was arrested at the border. I do not find that at all surprising, but somehow one doesn’t equal 500. And the word statistically doesn’t actually equate real numbers.

    Wolf. THIS ” financing the Caravans” nonsense will need some actual facts and evidence produced from you if you want anybody to take it seriously. You may believe the lies that David Anderson is spreading, but facts don’t care. And I continue to notice the silence from David.

  22. I was simply raising the question. Organized mass movements aren’t generally spontaneous — they are planned and initially financed by persons and/or entities with political agenda.
