Use the word invasion and you might make it stick. According to someone who might have been elected with illegal methods, means and influence, there is an emergency on our southern border because HE wants there to be an emergency and is trying to create one there.
Yet Border security employees, US Senators and many residents who live quite near the border say there is not an emergency that a wall, or steel structure, or human barrier would resolve. The true emergency is that our “Dear Leader” (the greatest deal maker of all time) is doing his utmost to uphold his deeply held beliefs that anyone that might be brown should be kept out of our country and he wants to preserve it for whites and only whites. Brown (and black and other colors) scare whitey. How about Muslim, Islam, Hindu and Buddhist religions? They are scary too.
Having to help those in need is not in his DNA. The would=be immigrants coming to our southern border are, for the most part, in great danger and suffering from physical, economic and cultural persecution in their home country. Getting into the Greatest Nation on Earth at least gives them a small chance to live a safe and healthy life. And that Leader wants to close our borders and deny them access, even though our laws state that people can apply for asylum and be allowed to enter and take their chances that they may be allowed to stay. If you don’t agree with him, he leads cheers to say that you want Open Borders. Did I mention that lies are his currency?
There is a small problem with that Leader in that he needs to maximize confusion and distraction from the pressure he is feeling from his corrupt and illegal administration’s mistakes. This emergency makes lots of people forget that he is possibly going to be impeached or go to jail or be forced to resign (he will claim victory and say he was too good for us) for all those deplorable things he has been getting away with. Follow the money and then count how many people from his staff and his orbit are either already guilty (they have admitted as much) or under serious scrutiny for what they have been doing for years. Some have even committed Treason. Manafort, Flynn, Gates, some very close to the Leader would be shot in another era.
We are somewhat reassured that the courts will be brought in to help decide if he can declare this emergency for the narrow reason that he could not get what he wanted from the legislative branch of our government. But what a waste of time and money having to protect the rule of law and our constitution because HE wants something and was unable to get it on HIS terms and timeline. Throw a tantrum, it may help.
