*I had the first night of decent sleep in several days (Yes, Dan is home.) And woke up to my friend whose middle name might or might not be Jefferson (he claims it’s not) burning up the phone line. I had NO EARTHLY what he was talking about, since the last days have been rather busy with household/family stuff.
I know. AOC was born “American” so, yeah, Trump misspoke. Is this worse than 57 states? He’s right in the main. That woman loves the country as she wants it to be, with HER in charge. The country as it is? Not so much.
Can’t she just go to one of those countries she identifies with? (They probably wouldn’t let her in, but–) As for the others? Two also have birthright citizenship. But they are not even remotely American. Which is the problem with taking “refugees” who don’t want to be American, but to get stuff from America.
As for me — first generation immigrant, thank you so much — and my house, we’ll be American.
People who are here and want to talk about how terrible America is? LEAVE. Vamoose. Go. We’re not a socialist state that restricts your ability to leave. That’s the whole point.
Fit in or F*ck off. I’ll help you pack your bags. – SAH*

NEW SOCIALIST “IT GIRL” CONTINUES TO PAY DIVIDENDS:
Former ICE Director Tom Homan Leaves Ocasio-Cortez Speechless On Immigration . Homan noted that, while he did not write the policy, he had made “numerous recommendations” to Homeland Security, including implementing a “zero tolerance” policy for illegal border crossers. “Which includes family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez interrupted. “The same as it is with every U.S. citizen,” Homan shot back. “Parent [who] gets arrested with a child.” After a brief pause, a seemingly rattled Ocasio-Cortez said, “Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated the children from their parents.” “If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car I’m gonna be separated,” Homan said. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from his family.”

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is “getting bolder with her lies” about the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. Crenshaw said Ocasio-Cortez’s colleagues are operating off a false premise and are misinforming the public for “political ends.”
“It’s sad to see,” Crenshaw said of Ocasio-Cortez’s performance at a border facility on Monday. “She’s getting bolder with her lies on this. And this is what is actually happening and this is what the American people need to understand. People like AOC are operating off of a false premise, and it’s deliberately designed to misinform the American people for her political ends.”
“Remember, first there was no crisis at all. Then it was a manufactured crisis, then it was a crisis completely created by Trump, then there were concentration camps, then people are Nazis. Now she’s saying border patrol agents harassed her and forced migrants to drink out of toilets,” Crenshaw said.
“This is insanity,” Crenshaw told FNC host Martha MacCallum. “This is not true. There’s no one else corroborating this kind of reports yet she’s using it to try to make her case that we shouldn’t have any enforcement and that we should have open borders. This is really dishonest behavior from a member of Congress and I honestly can’t believe it.”

The usual caveat up front, i.e. I can’t believe I’m agreeing with Andrew Sullivan. But his piece on immigration and the 2020 candidates restates a lot of the points I’ve tried to make in the last few weeks about this topic. The Democratic Party has long winked at illegal immigration but these days it is openly advocating for open borders.

Obama deliberately encouraged an influx of illegal alien children as a means of circumventing immigration law. Trump is merely reinstating the rule of law.

News outlets seized on the video as evidence of the Trump administration’s cruelty, but it related to actions taken during Barack Obama’s presidency.

How many times have you heard the carefully worded claims from media “experts” about how immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than citizens? If you follow the news at all closely I’m guessing it’s been fairly often. Of course, the careful wording is required so they don’t have to invoke the phrase “illegal immigrants” (i.e. illegal aliens) and ruin their narrative.

Everything about the language and history of the 14th Amendment reveals that it was never intended to grant birthright citizenship to illegal aliens. Trump set off a furor when he said he would use an executive order to end birthright citizenship.
