And now, the 2008 Democrat Party Platform as it relates to Border Security... #TrumpAddress #BuildTheWall
"We cannot continue to allow people to enter the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked. The American people are a welcoming and generous people, but those who enter our country's borders illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of the law."
"We need to secure our borders, and support additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on the border and at our ports of entry. We need additional Customs and Border Protection agents equipped with better technology and real-time intelligence."

Tonight, you’ll hear Trump address the nation about his immigration crisis.
Despite his lies, Trump is right about one thing.

We do have a crisis on our border.
A humanitarian crisis involving the mass incarceration of families seeking asylum.

(2) First, let’s address Trump’s manufactured crisis.

In 2017, immigrants entering illegally at the southern border hit their lowest level in 46 years.

America’s current immigration rate is net zero since more people leave than currently enter.…
(3) In fact, recent government data confirms that most of the illegal immigration that occurs in this country doesn’t come across the Mexican border at all, but from those overstaying their visas.…

Before this evening's broadcast, let's talk about Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v Sawyer—the case that struck down Harry Truman's executive order Executive Order 10340, that limited the president's power to seize property in the midst of a national emergency: HERE WE GO! (1/19)
OKAY! So it was April 1952 and the US was in the Korean War, and the steel mills were about to go on strike. To make sure the US has a steady steel supply, President Truman issued EO 10340, that the Secretary of Commerce was going to seize control of US steel mills. (2/19)
(Important to note: Truman could have tried to use portions of the recently-passed Taft–Hartley Act to stop the steel union from striking, bc it was meant to be a way to restrict union activity, but instead chose just to seize the steel mills.) (3/19)

We're so grateful to everyone who donated today as an act of resistance to counter Trump's hate.

One donation did so in honor of "my Great-Great Grandparents who themselves immigrated to this country in search of hope."
Another did in honor of "Jakelin Caal Maquin & Felipe Gomez Alonso", the two children who died in CBP custody over the past few weeks.
We received another donation "in memory of the trump administration's missing heart, empathy and conscience"

The left is in full panic mode about, not only Trump's speech today, but also his speech from the border Thursday. They are terrified that all the people that they have shielded from seeing what's really going on, are finally going to hear and see the reality for themselves
Don Lemon yesterday literally said "People are going to believe him". . of course knowing that what he's saying is 100% true. Trump will probably even have border leaders speak, and of course they will confirm everything he's saying. For many, it'll be their first time hearing it
This is why Trump is so important. He's awoken more patriots than anyone in our life time. And not just in America. There in an Anti-Establishment movement happening across Europe because of him. He has ignited a fire that the establishment thought was long extinguished
