Trump May Proclaim National Emergency

President Trump said that if the stalemate over funding a border wall continues–which has caused a partial shutdown of the government–he will consider declaring a national emergency. He affirmed that “We’re looking at a national emergency because we have a national emergency. Just read the papers. We have a crisis at the border. . . . it is national security, it’s a national emergency.” Under such an emergency, the president maintains, he would have authority to direct funding for border security.

‘Violent Mob’ Tries to Enter U.S.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reported that a “violent mob” of about 150 migrants tried to force their way into the U.S. at the San Diego sector of the U.S.-Mexican border on New Year’s eve. DHS spokeswoman Katie Waldman stated, “Once again we have had a violent mob of migrants attempt to enter the United States illegally by attacking our [Border Patrol and Customs] agents with projectiles.” Some of the migrants tried to lift small children over the concertina wire barrier at the border with little apparent regard for the safety of those children.

Enforcement Pushed to ‘Breaking Point’

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen affirmed in a written statement that “Our system has been pushed to a breaking point by those who seek open borders. Smugglers, traffickers, and their own parents put . . . minors at risk by embarking on the dangerous and arduous journey north. This crisis is exacerbated by the increase in persons who are entering our custody suffering from severe respiratory illnesses or exhibit some other illness upon apprehension.” Nielsen cited four particular problems, 

an immigration system that rewards parents for sending their children across the border alone,
a system that prevents parents who bring their children on a dangerous and illegal journey from facing consequences for their actions,
an asylum process that is not able to quickly help those who qualify for asylum,
a system that encourages fraudulent claims, and a system that encourages bad actors to coach aliens into making frivolous claims.

Trump Shifts Back to Shutdown

President Trump, apparently under pressure from his base, reversed his decision not to risk a government shutdown in order to get congressional funding for a border wall. The House passed the wall appropriation in its version of the budget bill, but the Senate did not authorize wall funding. If the two sides cannot reconcile their positions, and provide whatever funding the president will accept, he now appears set on vetoing the budget bill–thus bringing a shutdown.

Carlson Defies Boycott Attempt

A left-wing social media campaign is trying to pressure advertisers to pull their ads from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program. Carlson’s regularly speaks in favor of immigration law enforce and reasonable levels of legal immigration. 

The Fox News commentator spoke defiantly against this effort to silence him:  “It happens all the time–the enforcers scream, ‘Racist!’ on Twitter, until everybody gets intimidated and changes the subject to the Russia investigation or some other distraction. It’s a tactic, a well worn one–nobody thinks it’s real, and it won’t work with this show, we’re not intimidated. We plan to try to say what’s true until the last day.”
