Are We Close To Ending Illegal Immigration Altogether?

Lou Barletta, a Republican Representative from Pennsylvania exclusively admitted to Breitbart News that “We finally have an opportunity to end the problem of illegal immigration.”

He continued by saying, “Well you know, for me this is one of the reasons that I am here in Washington right now. I have been fighting this issue back when I was a mayor in 2006, and here we are in 2018 still talking about it.”

“I am excited because we finally have an opportunity to end the problem of illegal immigration. Hopefully, politics will not once again get in the way.”

Regarding the recent Bill, Barletta stated:

I like the bill a lot; there’s something here for everyone. Most importantly, there’s something here for the American people, and that’s to finally end this problem of illegal immigration. The Democrats need to be on board if they’re serious about DACA, but at the same time, it’s reasonable to make sure the American people will not have to deal with this problem again. The president was pretty clear that we need the Wall first and that we need to secure our borders. To put in terms that people will understand, if you have a hole in your roof, you wouldn’t replace your carpet. Before we begin to talk about DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] and what we are going to do and people discussing something as far away as a pathway to citizenship to make the problem worse, which will only open up the floodgates for people to come here illegally. We need to secure the border and stop the flow of illegal immigration into the country.

The second thing is that you cannot do DACA without ending chain migration. To put in realistic terms, immigrants can bring their kids here, we allow them to stay, and then they can bring their cousins. It just doesn’t make sense. It’s very clear that we can end this problem, secure the border, build the wall, in exchange for DACA we should end chain migration, the diversity lottery, and bring about E-Verify, so that we are protecting American workers, and then end this problem.

When we talk about securing the borders, we cannot forget that nearly 50 percent of the people that come here illegally come through a visa, the visa expires, and then they just disappear. According to the 9/11 Commission Report, that is the preferred method of entry for terrorists, many of the 9/11 terrorists used that way to enter the country. I am interested in solving this problem once and for all and politicians in Washington need to stop playing politics.

If Democrats do not want to solve this problem, then it is clear they do not want this problem to go away. If they are serious about DACA recipients, then they will have no problem with ending chain migration and securing the border, and not allowing the same problem to occur five years from now. If it is so unfair, why would you allow this happen again?

    Rep.Swalwell and liberal democrats are dull cowards failing to admit their vision of no borders, sanctuary cities, opened immigration, no country, no America…..
    Just working people paying for liberal irresponsibility, gangs, prisons, collapsed economies.
    “Strength in our diversity”? Sounds….poetic huh? What does that even mean?

    Yep we do have that opportunity and y’all are THROWING IT AWAY again, as usual! NO DACA, that will only encourage MORE to flood in; assuming that, as USUAL, y’all WILL again cave and give them the same amnesty, just as y’all have BEEN DOING! WAKE UP and smell the coffee and bacon! They ALL HAVE TO GO, NOW; no amnesty whatever and a STOUT wall, with ARMED GUARDS too! That’s how you “solve” DACA, and discourage future illegal invasion! No more just drifting back and forth across the borders willy nilly, because the towns are ON the border. Keep the gates MANNED!

    It isn’t only the Democrats that do not want to solve this problem. There are plenty of RINOs that have jumped on that bandwagon.

    The two biggest campaign promises by Trump and the Republicans in Congress, was the repeal of Obamacare and the securing of the border. Neither has been completed or even really started yet. Starting to look like those promises are turning into a barefaced lie.

    I believe Trump is trying but he is up against a do nothing Congress. They aren’t getting anything done because they don’t want to. As much as I hate to say it, a conservative Majority in Congress is a joke. The Liberals never lost control of Congress. The promise the RINOs made to secure the border and repeal Obamacare was only to make brownie points with the voters to keep their seats. According to RINO Senator Cornyn, there was never any intention of doing either. I think Trump winning the White House caught all of them flat footed because they expected a Hillary win. Right up to Election Day the polls were giving Hillary over a 90% chance of a landslide victory. Now the RINOs are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Their true liberal colors are showing.

    There are 33 Senate seats up for grabs this year. They are 8 Republicans, 23 Democrats and 2 independents. All the seats in the House are up for grabs. Get them in the primaries. By encouraging new candidates to run against the incumbents in the Primaries, you can vote against the incumbent without having to sacrifice party loyalty. That is what happened to Arlin Specter, Tom Foley and Eric Cantor.

    The way the RINOs have been acting this past year, I suspect that one of two things will happen in the midterms this year. Many RINOs could lose their seats to other Republican challengers in the Primaries or lose them to Democrats in the General Midterm. I hope all the RINOs up for reelection all lose their seats in their State Primaries this year by the biggest landslide in their State’s history.

    The GOP has done everything to disappoint me and nothing to impress me. They work hard. I will give them that. They are working hard to make sure that two of the biggest campaign promises of 2016 will not be kept. Remember when George H. W. Bush said “Read my lips” in 1988? We all know what happened in 1992 as a result of that broken promise. This time the RINOs weren’t even smart enough to put it all on Trump like The Democrats did to Bush in 1992.

    Reelect no one. Fire them all.

    I guarantee the Democrats don’t want the problem to go away-they would prefer to grow it. Contained within the problem is their voter base. A recent paper written by a member of Democrat leadership admits it. The Democrats don’t actually care if the US becomes a shit hole, as long as they get to run it. The only path the Democrats have to get back into power is to import a huge batch of Muslims and Mexicans, because these are reliable Democrat voters. If they can get a large crowd of criminals, of every variety, into the country-numbers and voter fraud will take care of the rest.

    Arrest illegal alien criminal usurper Barack Obama aka Barry Soetoro, the Marxist Muslim infiltrator jihadist attacking USA.

    I blame this whole mess on Ronald Reagan and his so-called “One time amnesty.” Reagan started the precedence.
