$12 – 25 BILLION for a Wall built by Corp of Engineers, National Guard or private sector “shovel ready jobs”? Looks possible ….
The military budget is $700 BILLION for 2018 and $716 BILLION for 2019.
Trump is willing to fund shovel ready jobs that start in 90 days.
The Corp of Engineers recently moved a river.
So, yes, the National Guard and or Corp of Engineers can use a shovel, clean out a drug infested tunnel, build a road.
Trump plans to build a military base along the wall.
WASHINGTON—The Trump administration is requesting that the U.S. military build walls for at least one military base along the U.S.-Mexico border, part of President Donald Trump’s plan to fortify the border, U.S. officials say.
“We are looking into options for the military to build a wall on military installations on the border,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told reporters Wednesday afternoon.
Details of the plan, expected to be released later Wednesday afternoon by the White House, come days after Mr. Trump suggested the military could pay for the wall he wants to build along the southern border.
Where might the $25 BILLION to build a WALL come from? The military got $700 BILLION in 2018 and 716 BILLION for 2019.
President Donald Trump and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis have discussed the possibility that the U.S. military front the costs for a border wall, the Pentagon confirmed Thursday.
“The secretary has talked to the president about it,” said Pentagon press secretary Dana White. “Securing Americans and securing the nation is of paramount importance to the secretary. They have talked about it but I don’t have any more details as to specifics.”
President Trump signed the $1.3 trillion budget into law last Friday. The bill provides $700 BILLION in 2018 and $716 BILLION in 2019 to the Defense Department, money Mattis and the service chiefs have repeatedly emphasized is critical to rebuilding military readiness and lethality.
Aptos Psychologist: The “caravan” of 1,200 + coming from El Salvador provided incentive for Trump to send the National Guard. That caravan dissolved after intervention from Mexico providing assistance. What to do abut DACA remains. And what about the 12-20 MILLION illegals who live and work in the USA?
What say you? Immigration was and remains the issue that propelled Trump into the Presidency.
DACA kids, crime, illegal immigration & sanctuary cities …. what to do?
February 21, 2018
But it can sometimes be hard to deport the illegals involved because about half of the crimes detailed in the report occurred in so-called “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
President Trump has pledged to crack down on the gang and deport those in the United States illegally, and report author Jessica M. Vaughan suggested that it can’t happen soon enough.
Detailing how the gang rebuilt itself under Obama’s open-border immigration policies, she said, “this resurgence represents a very serious threat to public safety in communities where MS-13 has rebuilt itself. The resurgence is directly connected to the illegal arrival and resettlement of more than 300,000 Central American youths and families that has continued unabated for six years, and to a de-prioritization of immigration enforcement in the interior of the country that occurred at the same time.”
The research she supervised at the immigration think tank found that MS-13 concentrations were in areas where so-called “unaccompanied alien children” were put under Obama, including Virginia, California, Maryland and New York. They included those participating in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals who Democrats in Congress are fighting for.
She cited an example of a Maryland DACA recipient charged with gang activity who urged pals in El Salvador to take advantage of Obama’s policies:
One MS-13 clique leader in Frederick, Md., who had received a DACA work permit and was employed as a custodian at a middle school in Frederick, Md., and who was recently incarcerated for various gang-related crimes, reportedly was told by gang leaders in El Salvador to take advantage of the lenient policies on UACs to bring in new recruits, knowing that they would be allowed to resettle in the area with few questions asked. Several of these unaccompanied minors now have been arrested and incarcerated for various crimes, including a vicious random attack on a sheriff’s deputy in 2015.
Crime, torture and theft are the trademarks of the gang.
“The MS-13 members identified in the cases we found were accused of very serious crimes, including 207 murders. More than 100 were accused of conspiracy/racketeering, and dozens of others were charged with drug trafficking, sex trafficking, attempted murder, sexual assaults, and extortion,” said the report. Vaughan is the center’s policy director.
“The proliferation of sanctuaries may complicate disruption of MS-13,” said the report. “Many of the hotbeds of MS-13 activity are also places where local officials have adopted sanctuary policies. These policies prevent ICE from working effectively with local law enforcement agencies. There are approximately 300 sanctuary jurisdictions in the country, and they include municipalities, counties, and states.11 About half of the MS-13 arrests in our case set (222) occurred in sanctuary jurisdictions,” said CIS.

Dreamers – are they productive, law abiding and speak English? What Arizona statistics show ….
January 24, 2018
What do we know whether the Dreamers are productive, law abiding and speak English.
A majority (74 percent) of U.S. Protestants and Catholics support “Dreamers” receiving permanent legal status, according to a Pew Research Center report released on Jan. 19. Catholic Hispanics overwhelmingly support the Dreamers (92%).
“Dreamers” are persons brought to the U.S. as minors and who have only known the U.S. as their home.
In Arizona, the Dreamers are 4 times more likely to commit crimes than their numbers would suggest.
Younger illegal immigrants in Arizona make up a far larger percentage of the state’s prison inmates than their share of the population would suggest, according to a new analysis.
While illegal immigrants ages 18 to 35 — a group immigration activists call “Dreamers” — are about 2 percent of of the Arizona population, they are almost 8 percent of the prison population. The over-representation by a factor of four shows that younger illegal immigrants in Arizona are far more likely to commit crimes than U.S. citizens or legal immigrants of a similar age, says John Lott Jr., president of the Crime Prevention Research Center.
Roughly half of the Dreamers are literate in English. Persons who don’t speak English are not able to get jobs that will support themselves and their families.
Aptos Psychologist: America stopped all immigration for 40 years (1924-1965) which allowed for assimilation of all the millions who had come. Perhaps it’s time again to stop immigration and again assimilate those who are here? To be successful here immigrants need to learn English and learn skills so they can be productive members. What say you? Comments welcome.
Firenze Sage: I want my mama … says DACA dance instructor convicted of two DUI’s
January 1, 2018
DACA illegal immigrant Gantulga faces deportation. His parents, who overstayed their visas, returned to Mongolia with two younger children leaving him behind.
The Washington Post published a profile of Gantulga Wednesday that downplayed his two drunk driving charges.
The headline of the piece focused on the illegal immigrant’s work as a dance teacher, stating, “He taught lawyers, vets and more how to ballroom dance. Now his students are trying to save him from deportation.”
Galtsog Gantulga, affectionately referred to by dance students as ‘G,’ was allowed into the United States through the Delayed Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program. However, Gantulga lost his DACA status after he was caught drunk driving in 2016. Twice.
In the first incident, Gantulga hit a parked car. He reportedly fled the scene of the second. Sacchetti notes that Gantulga “took responsibility” for his crimes, spending a month in jail, selling his car, and joining Alcoholics Anonymous. But Gantulga also claims it “definitely wouldn’t have happened if my parents were here.” His parents left the country after they overstayed their visas. Leaving Gantulga behind, his parents returned to Mongolia with two younger children born in the U.S.A.
Firenze Sage: Here we go again.”He took responsibility for his crimes.” Actually he fled the scene of the 2d drunk driving with an accident and then moaned that if his deported parents were here, it all never would have happened. Go and dance elsewhere.
