Worth watching from the start. POTUS announces some permanent appointments. Says the admin has suspended & cut tons/regs, including recently, & has asked depts to determine which regs could be permanently cut. Shout out to Dept/Treasury @SecElaineChao ( wife/ @senatemajldr ).
#CabinetMeeting POTUS thanks @VP & #coronavirus Task Force. Veep summarizes work/the Task Force, thanks Governors, locals, & public-private partnership, for working w/Feds. We grieve as many as 90k lost, yet 12M #coronavirus tests to date, 400k last weekend, more coming.
#CabinetMeeting As/today, all 50 states are at least partially reopening, Big 3 car companies went back to work, other business, but following guidelines for everyone’s continued safety. Task Force will continue as long as needed. #ReOpenAmerica

• Tell the "full truth" and stick to the science.
• The Pew Institute •
Using all available 2018 data concluded that
10.5 to 12 million illegal immigrants live in the #USA

Adding onto the 10.5 children born and given naturalization status = 44.5,000,000

(Southern Boarder)

•2019 there were 977,509 ppl captured entering illegally

•An average of 60,000 a month and 100,000 a month during the 5 month caravan waves

•Without the caravans, there is still an average of 500,000 annually

•Only illegally entered, undocumented immigrants

The problem is NOT immigration it is illegal immigration that costs 200 billion a year

The Niskanen Center, El Paso County, Border Network for Human Rights, and @ProtctDemocracy filed an amicus brief (in a case brought by several states and NGOs) to continue the fight against Trump’s attempt to override Congressional authority to fund his #BorderWall.
We argue that the lower court was correct in holding that Trump cannot legally spend the $3.6B Congress appropriated for military construction funds...because the border wall is neither a “military construction project” nor is “necessary to support use of the armed forces.”
The brief added that spending these funds on the border wall is illegal because #Congress provided that no funds were to be spent on the border wall beyond the $1.375 billion that was appropriated specifically for that purpose.

Outrage over @POTUS Trump's violation of norms, principles, and laws has tended to mask actions his Administration is taking that hurts a large swath of his base. Let's stop reacting to all @realDonaldTrump's #bull$hit and start tweeting about issues:
#Healthcare: Trump has tried since election to trash #AffordableCareAct (b/c it's called "Obamacare"), joining Republican states in suing to overturn ACA, doing away with protection for #Pre_existingConditions. Trump budget cuts Medicaid and ACA subsidies by a trillion dollars.
Trump also wants to cut #SNAP once again calling for reductions in the number of adults who can qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The 2021 budget proposes cutting SNAP funding by about $15 billion from last year. nytimes.com/2020/02/10/us/…

2019 in Review📅Article by @charlottecuthbo (Thread👇)

#BorderCrisis Peak, #Mexico Cooperation, and Judicial Wrangling

The year began with President Trump declaring a #NationalEmergency at the southern #Border. theepochtimes.com/year-in-review…
The #BorderCrisis escalated, and in May, nearly 133,000 #IllegalAliens were apprehended by #BorderPatrol, with a further 11,000 presenting at ports of entry without legal documentation.

By the end of fiscal 2019, almost 1 million people had entered the US illegally.
Over 600,000 of them were either individuals within a family unit or unaccompanied minors—both vulnerable populations that often arrived sick and required more care than #BorderPatrol was set up to provide.

Jeffrey Epstein forces a Trump Vote. Here's why.

Living in Boston has honed my truth-seeking skills. From the moment @POTUS came down the escalator he has been ridiculed, berated, hated and abused, as were all those who considered supporting him. Why? #EpsteinSuicideCoverUp
@POTUS The question plagued me. At first it seemed to be just elitist snobbery - (we have that here). But after the election, the mocking turned into rage. The Washington establishment went crazy - both Rep. and Dem. The hatred was palpable. Anyone who supported him had to whisper. Why?
@POTUS It made no sense. If he was such a buffoon, then why not just defeat him through the normal channels? Stop his efforts in Congress and begin the seemingly easy process of voting him out in 2020. That's how we do things here in the US - we've done it that way forever. #Epstein

Who would've thought a film shot on some mobile phones would take your breath away. #MidnightTraveler is astonishing, heart grabbing, without one dull minute. It's the story of an Afghan refugee family on the run to safety over three years, which they filmed on their own phones.
You can't help feel rage when you see the two little girls trying to play with the soccer ball within what is essentially a maximum-security prison of high concrete walls and barbed wire In Hungary.
But it's not all outrage. The film records the dark humor, danger & boredom of life on the run. The little girls sing & play games in a smuggler's taxi with their dad locked in the trunk for safety as they pass through Taliban territory where dad has a death sentence on his head.

1. The border wall construction is progressing marvelously. 44,000 panels have now been installed already!

#BorderWall's happening!
2. Unable to scale the new #BorderWall & flee back to Mexico, 2 men who entered the U.S. illegally near San Diego were arrested by #BorderPatrol. Barriers give agents the time they need to respond and contain illicit activity at the immediate border. @CBP
3. Many thanks President Trump and all involved with the Great Wall! ❤️🇺🇸

Trump unleashed barrage of racist, anti-immigrant tweets directed at 4 Democratic congresswomen of color. He demanded the 4 “go back to the crime-infested places from where they came.”

Organ Pipe #borderwall update: Well drillers spotted within 5 miles of Quitobaquito Spring. DHS is drilling wells to extract precious desert groundwater to mix concrete for wall construction.

These reckless actions imperil Quitobaquito & all species that depend on it.
Sources say each foot of border wall will require 2 cubic yards of concrete. A yard of concrete takes 39 gallons of water. This means each mile of wall = 411,840 gallons of water.

For the planned 68 miles of wall, DHS would suck up 28 MILLION gallons of desert groundwater.
I’m no hydrologist, but I’m pretty sure sucking 28 million gallons of water out of a rare desert aquifer will have serious consequences.

NPS has long considered groundwater extraction Quitobaquito’s biggest threat. Trump’s wall could be the nail in the coffin.

The activist liberal judge who doesn't want our borders protected. Not surprised at all that he is an Obama appointee living in California. #JudgeGillamHaywood #Borderwall #BuildTheWall #VoteRedToSaveAmerica
Sad that we have judges behaving like activist instead of following the law. I am not impressed at all.
Activist judges. This has to stop.

Silicon Valley's "bi-partisan" lobbying group focused on amnesty for Dreamers and border security policy.

#PropagandaWars
FWD.us was founded by Zuckerberg's Harvard roommate Joe Green and supported by the Godfather of Silicon Valley Ron Conway in 2013.
They produce pro amnesty "stories" about tech executives with the goal of convincing viewers we are turning away top talent if we don't fix our immigration laws.

The real story about the border crisis that the liberal MSM and Democrats don’t want you to know about. They are busy continuing a hoax of Russia Collusion. #BorderWall
Juan Williams and other Democrats need to shut up! He is so biased.
SMH instead of asking about border safety a lone #fakenews reporter ask the president about his tax returns. No wonder people don't know about the crisis.

"Every day, my presidency will defend American families, we will defend America’s workers … we will defend the American way of life and we will always defend America’s borders—because without borders, we don’t have a country…
…The lawless chaos on our southern border provides a lucrative cashflow to some of the most dangerous criminal organizations on the planet. Deadly cartels constantly violate our borders…
…Our Border Patrol, our ICE agents, our law enforcement - the job they do, and they don’t have the backup of a wall in many cases - the job they do is incredible."

Securing the borders primarily falls to CBP, a branch of DHS. Alongside agencies such as the TSA & DEA
