Lindsey Graham to lead group of senators to White House for immigration talks – Fox News

EXCLUSIVE: Top Republican senators, led by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., plan to meetThursday at the White House with President Trump to discuss possible immigration measuresin case the Supreme Court strikes down an Obama-era ruling shielding illegal immigrants from deportation, Fox News has learned -- a push likely to revive concerns among Trumps base of an election-yearamnesty push.

Thelawmakers are set to meet, at the invitation of the White House,with Trump around noon to discuss what would happen should the top court strike down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order, asource familiar with the negotiations said. A decision on DACA is expected in June. The Republicans are said to include Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.; Tom Cotton, R-Ark.;Martha McSally, R-Ariz.;Mike Lee, R-Utah;Ron Johnson, R-Wis.;Thom Tillis, R-N.C. and David Perdue, R-Ga.

SANCTUARY CITIES MAKE ARRESTING CRIMINAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HARDER, PUT OFFICERS AT RISK: DHS WATCHDOG

Graham, on Thursday morning, told Fox News that the meeting was going ahead and it was related to the coming DACA ruling.

"Just to see, you know, where we are in terms of the DACA Supreme Court case, [there's a] pretty good chance that the president will win, being able to set aside the Obama-era DACA regulations and what's the play after that," he said.

The source told Fox News that a comprehensive immigration reform deal was to be discussed, but a Graham spokesman pushed back, saying thatthe meeting is to discuss DACA, andcomprehensive immigration reform was just one of a broad range of topicsthatcould potentially be discussed.

A spokesman for Lee confirmed toFox News that the senatorhad been invited to the White House to talk immigration, but that he hadn't heard anything about a deal for Dreamers. The offices of Sens. Johnson and Cramer also confirmed their attendance at the meeting.

Trump vowed during his 2016 campaign toendDACA but has also said he is open to a broader bill that would allow those affected -- young migrants dubbed Dreamers who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children -- to stay as part of broader immigration plan that sees funding for border security in exchange for a "pathway to citizenship" as well as expansion of visas and green cards. Even as Republicans fight DACA in court, there is some bipartisan appetite for finding a legislative way to protect Dreamers, considering that in many casesthe decision to illegally enter the U.S. was not their own.

An eventual, if elusive, immigration pact, particularly one that succeeds by pickingup Democratic support, could essentially boost the presidents image among moderatesas a deal-maker who can get things done where others have failed. Yet,it is risky and likelyto fuel furtherconcern among immigration hawks in Trumps base.

"It is risky, it makes sense that Graham is the one taking the lead givenhis prominent role in past efforts...but itwould make a lot more sense if someone hawkish took the lead on this," Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for lower levels of immigration, told Fox News.

Krikorian said that Trump risks being seen as "selling out" on his signature campaign promises on immigration, but the White House could deal with thatrisk by coming up with a deal the president can defend, andincluding provisions that no-one beyond the actual DACA recipients, such as their relatives, gets legal status as well.

"A tough enough deal that he could justify it, because there is political support for legalizing people who lived here for years and came here as 8-year-olds," he said.

While the delegation includes a range of immigration hardliners whose involvement could potentially dilute anything too far-reaching, Grahamhas been eyed with suspicion by conservative activistsfor years for his pushes on immigration reform.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh once dubbed the South Carolina senator Lindsey Grahamnesty for his repeated efforts, alongsidethen-Arizona Sen. John McCain, to try andget immigration reform through Congress -- a move that was killed during the Bush administration aftera push by conservative activists.In 2018, conservative commentator Ann Coulter called Graham the "single worst person to negotiate" such a deal.

Pushes for immigration reform have also been blamed for helping doom the presidential aspirations of a number of top Republicans, including Jeb Bush, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and even Graham himself.

ICE CHIEF RIPS NEW YORK FOR SHARING DRIVER DATA WITH CANADA, BUT NOT US IMMIGRATION AGENTS

A call for a comprehensive immigration reform plan was included in a post-2012 election "autopsy" report by the Republican National Committee. The nomination of Trump in 2016 was seen as a rebuke to that call, particularlyby the party base.

"What Lindsey Graham is trying to do isn't only bad policy, it's bad politics. His amnesty agenda is in line with the 2012 GOP autopsy report that should have been dead and buried after President Trump was elected," the source familiar with negotiations told Fox News.

Graham himself has at times taken a tough stance on illegal immigration. Last year, he introduced a bill that would end asylum claims at the border and return unaccompanied minors to their home countries, as part of an effort to end the then-escalating crisis at the border.

Trump has racked up a series of wins at the border, securing funding for the wall, and dramatically reducing border crossings by implementing international agreements with neighboring countries. But there remains in some pro-Trump circles a sneaking suspicion that a betrayal on so-called amnesty for illegal immigrantsis just around the corner, considering the hefty appetite in Washington D.C. for a deal.

While its not immediately clear what the deal could include, there are a number of bills and proposals already circling that could be covered-- in measures both passed by the House or mentioned in prior stabs at immigration reform.

Krikorian said he believes there will likely be enforcement measures in any agreement, butsaid there should also be an offsetting reduction in legal immigration if DACA-recipients are going to end up with legal status.

"If we're giving away 700,000 green cards, that's almost an extra year of immigration, there needs to be some reduction," he said.

The Democrat-controlled House passed a farm bill in Decemberthat granted a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants working in the agriculture industry. While it hasnt yet been taken up by the Senate, it could be brought in to discussions. Other aspects, including green card reform, legal status for DACA recipients and visa reforms, could also be part of the deal, the source said.

Trump too has tried to push a DACA deal before, in January 2019 offering Democrats legal status for DACA recipients in exchange for money for the border wall. He later backed away from the deal after pushback from immigration hawks.

Politico reported last month that a White House proposal was in the works to overhaul America's immigration system to replace it with a merit-based system.But that too has struggled with hawks, as it doesn't make the E-Verify work verification system mandatory, nor does it reduce overall immigration levels.

ANN COULTER:The Boy Scouts have long been on the left’s hate list – MDJOnline.com

Posted: February 23, 2020 at 12:47 pm

HONEY, WE MOLESTED THE KIDS!

I wonder if any liberals are re-thinking their insistence that the Boy Scouts allow gay men to take 13-year-old boys on overnight camping trips.

HEADLINE: Boy Scouts Files Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the Face of Thousands of Child Abuse Allegations

The Boy Scouts of America have long been on the lefts hate list. Any organization that has the temerity to train young men in the virtues of integrity, patriotism and self-reliance is putting itself on the fighting side of liberals!

At the 2000 Democratic National Convention, a little group of Boy Scouts took the stage as part of the opening ceremony and were promptly booed by the delegates.

For decades, the BSA has fended off lawsuits demanding that they embrace the holy trinity of Gs: girls, gays and godless atheists. (If only it had occurred to the plaintiffs to start their own organizations! They could have given them names like The Girl Scouts.)

Why would any liberal want to join an organization that was, according to them, sexist, Bible-thumping and bigoted? They didnt. The lawsuits were kill shots.

For the left, whats not to hate about the Boy Scouts? Their oath is: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Nearly 200 NASA astronauts were Boy Scouts. The great outdoorsman, Teddy Roosevelt, was such a BSA booster than he was made the one and only Chief Scout Citizen, a scout for life.

A Louis Harris & Associates study in 1996 found that men who had been scouts placed a higher value on honesty than those who had not.

But now the lawsuits have killed them. Congratulations, Democrats, The New York Times and corporate America. (I hope all their future employees steal from them, after being raised on Grand Theft Auto instead of the Boy Scout oath.)

From the beginning, BSA has had to deal with child molesters eagerly signing up to go camping with 13-year-old boys in isolated areas away from all observation.

Within a decade of its 1910 founding, the BSA began keeping internal files on ineligible scouting volunteers, known as the perversion files.

Scout leaders were not to be alone with boys and, starting in 1988, all adult applicants were subjected to aggressive background screening. The organization promptly removed any scout leaders based on mere suspicion and alerted law enforcement in about a third of the cases.

Nonetheless, between 1970 and 1991, up to .04% of Boy Scouts may have been molested. Thats about 2,000 out of several million boys.

Given all of this, what sort of escaped mental patient would demand that the Boy Scouts admit openly gay scout leaders?

Yes, we know most gays arent child molesters. How could we not? Its part of our secular catechism, along with the one about most Muslims not being terrorists and most immigrants not being criminals.

But men who molest boys are a small slice infinitesimal really! within a larger category known as gay. Its not two totally different things, like an architect and a dentist. Some men like blondes. Some like brunettes. But theyre all within the category of heterosexual.

No parent is going to send their young sons camping alone in the woods with an openly gay man for the same reason they wouldnt send their adolescent daughters to be alone in the woods with an openly heterosexual man.

And now the BSA has been whiplashed into bankruptcy by liberals demanding, on one hand, that the scouts allow gays to be troop leaders and, on the other hand, filing lawsuits accusing the scouts of not taking strong enough measures to prevent gay troop leaders from molesting boys.

Couldnt liberals get together and decide for themselves whether the Boy Scouts should have been more aggressive in preventing child molestation or less?

For their defense witnesses, the Boy Scouts should call New York Times editors, Democratic politicians and corporate CEOs.

Back in 1980, when a gay guy lost his lawsuit against BSA for dropping him as a scout leader, Wells Fargo, the United Way of San Francisco, Levi Strauss and the Bank of America cut off funding to the organization. San Francisco and Oakland schools prohibited the scouts from using their facilities on weekdays.

After the Supreme Courts disturbingly narrow 5-4 decision in 2000 holding that the Boy Scouts could not be forced to admit gay scout leaders, the Times denounced the decision in an editorial, calling the courts ruling one of its lowest moments of the term.

The following month, the Times ethicist, Randy Cohen, advised a reader to pull her son out of the Cub Scouts, saying it was the ethical thing to do. The ethicist explained: Just as one is honor bound to quit an organization that excludes African-Americans, so you should withdraw from scouting as long as it rejects homosexuals.

Also in response to the Supreme Courts decision, Chase Manhattan Bank, Textron Inc. and dozens more United Way chapters withdrew millions of dollars in contributions. More cities dropped their support of the Boy Scouts.

In his pre-Super Bowl TV interview in 2013, President Barack Obama was still harping on the Boy Scouts refusal to allow gay scoutmasters: Gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does.

On CNN, host Carol Costello haughtily informed a guest opposed to gay scoutmasters, Well, Ill just say that the American Psychological Association has studied the issue that you just mentioned. Homosexuals arent any more likely to molest kids than straight men.

Throughout the lefts 30-year assault on the Boy Scouts for discriminating against gays, the Catholic Church was embroiled in its own molestation crisis. More than 80% of the molester priests were accused of victimizing teenage boys.

Instead of saying, Oh I see what the Boy Scouts are doing, liberals responded to the gay sex-abuse crisis in the priesthood by blaming ... celibacy!

Isnt it a thought crime to question whether sexual preference is determined at birth? But liberals not only believed gayness was the result of an adult lifestyle choice celibacy but they knew how to cure it: Allow priests to marry!

Since the one thing we know is that men molesting boys has nothing to do with being gay, I guess this time its camping that causes sodomy.

UC Berkeley student senator resigns over resolution against Bears for Palestine – The Jewish News of Northern California

Posted: at 12:47 pm


without comments

Jewish UC Berkeley student senator Milton Zerman resigned Wednesday night in protest after a resolution he introduced to condemn a controversial Palestinian photo display was voted down.

In a letter, Zerman said the decision alienated a vast majority of Jewish students, drained the legitimacy and moral authority of the student government and revealed a culture of anti-Semitism at the university.

It was the right decision to resign, Zerman wrote in a text message to J. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get elected to UC Berkeleys student government as an openly Zionist Jewish student. But its come to a point where the ASUC is no longer an institution I can affiliate myself with in good conscience.

The resolution, struck down on Feb. 10 by the ASUC External and University Affairs Committee in a 4-1 vote, called for condemning a photo display that includes photos of two Palestinian women involved in deadly civilian bombings and hijackings of planes going to and from Israel.

The photos are displayed in the shared office space of Bears for Palestine, a campus group that promotes Palestinian history and culture.

In his resignation letter, which was shared with other members of the student senate, Zerman said he will now refocus his efforts on helping more Jews and moderates get elected to the Associated Students of the University of California.

Zerman, a member of the Berkeley College Republicans and Tikvah: Students for Israel, has himself been a source of controversy. At a Feb. 3 vote for his resolution, which was later tabled after the meeting devolved into chaos, Zerman described the Bears for Palestine as godless, according to the Daily Californian.

Though the resolution had the support of some pro-Israel students, a number of Jewish students distanced themselves from Zerman.

In an opinion piece published yesterday in the Daily Californian, Jewish student Josh Burg said Zermans resolution was ironic considering some of his past activities, including last November when Zerman urged students to attend a campus lecture by conservative media pundit Ann Coulter. Coulter has peddled in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, Burg wrote, calling Jews globalists and claiming they are encouraging Muslim immigration to the United States.

Burg described Zermans assertion that Jewish students feel alienated by the vote as ridiculous.

Zerman has been able to co-opt representation of the Jewish community, Burg said in an interview. From the very beginning, the Jewish community wasnt behind him.

Burg also pushed back on Zermans claim that UC Berkeley is anti-Semitic. Jewish life on this campus is thriving in many ways, he said.

Some Jews have been oddly comfortable cozying up to right-wing voices, he continued. What is actually dangerous to Jews? Are a few pictures on the third floor of a room dangerous? Or is cozying up to Ann Coulter? There needs to be a much larger conversation about our values.

On Tuesday night, Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ responded more fully to the turmoil, issuing two nearly identical letters written to both sides those who opposed the resolution and those who supported it.

Christ wrote that the display of Palestinian militants who killed unarmed Jewish civilians is an affront to our Principles of Community. In the next sentence, she denounced an inflammatory comment made by a pro-Israel student during one of ASUCs meetings.

Mick Mulvaney Says America Is Desperate For More Immigrants – The Ring of Fire Network – The Ring of Fire Network

Posted: at 12:47 pm


without comments

During a speech this week, Donald Trumps acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that the United States is desperate for more immigrants to enter this country, though he admits that they only want the legal kind of immigrants. The problem is that the U.S. has become so angry towards immigrants that they simply dont want to come here, and it is going to be devastating for our economy. Ring of Fires Farron Cousins discusses this.

Transcript:

*This transcript was generated by a third-party transcription software company, so please excuse any typos.

Earlier this week at a private meeting in England, Mick Mulvaney, Donald Trumps acting chief of staff, told the people there at that meeting that the United States is actually desperate for more immigrants. Mick Mulvaney coming from one of the most anti-immigrant administrations in recent history telling a crowd in private, obviously, yeah, we actually need more immigrants coming into the United States. Now, he did preface it by saying, obviously Im talking about the legal kind of immigrants, you know, not the illegal immigrants, but either way, we really need these people coming into this country. And the reason Mick Mulvaney said is because, we are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that weve had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants. Those are his exact words, according to the people in attendance. And that just kind of hits on what we have been saying since the start of the Trump administration.

And that is you cannot have sustainable economic growth if we do not have these immigrants coming into our country. Believe it or not, folks, there actually are jobs that American citizens do not want to do and those are the jobs that typically get filled by these immigrants. Great case in point, many years ago, about seven or eight years ago, state of Georgia enacted a tough immigration policy that actually limited and in many instances outright restricted the use of temporary guest workers coming into the state of Georgia. What happened that year was that farmers didnt have anyone to go out there and harvest their crops. You had fruit rotting in trees, vegetables rotting in the fields, farmers losing tons of money because they couldnt find anybody else willing to do it. So when I say that, yeah, sorry, there are jobs some Americans just simply refuse to do or theyre physically not able to do.

I know what Im talking about because weve seen it happen within the past decade. We have seen reports over the last three years of small businesses across this country, typically in the landscaping industry, losing money, some of them having to shut down because Donald Trump has actually clamped down on legal immigration. Limited the number of those temporary guest worker visas that were distributing every single year. And because of that, our economy is suffering and at least Mick Mulvaney understands that, which is actually a more classical Republican approach to immigration. They understand that, yeah, we have to have these people coming over. They do jobs, they contribute to the economy, but if were ever pressed on the issue, of course were going to say that these people are evil, that we need to keep them out, that theyre taking your jobs, even though we know thats a lie. And thats essentially what Mick Mulvaney was admitting in that private room in England.

Thats what happened. The truth is that the United States economy is dependent upon immigrants, and as long as Donald Trump is serving as president of the United States, and hes got Stephen Miller whispering in his ear, were going to continue to suffer because this man knows that he cant give an inch on the issue of immigration. He has backed himself into a corner because of Stephen Miller. If he were to allow more guest workers to come over here to the United States, Miller would erupt. Ann Coulter would erupt as we have seen her do in the past. His base would go into a frenzy, claim that he conned them on the issue of being tough on immigration, and he simply wont risk that. So he would rather see the economy suffer because were not bringing in enough immigrants, as Mick Mulvaney says, than half to anger his base by letting a few more people come in.

Watch Ann Coulter: If We Dont Address Immigration, the Nuttiest of Democrat Proposals Will Come to the U.S. – Breitbart

Posted: at 4:43 pm


without comments

Ann Coulter told Breitbart News on Friday if the Republican Party doesnt do something about immigration, then the worst proposals brought up by Democrats at the Presidential Primary debates will inevitably come to the United States.

If we dont do something about immigration everything the nuttiest things theyre saying on the stage are coming to this country, said Coulter in response to Mayor Pete Buttigieg proposing reparations for illegal aliens at the latest Democrat presidential primary debate.

Coulter spoke to Breitbart News after addressing thousands of students and young activists at Turning Point USAs fifth annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Friday.

You dont know what to think when they say these things, were going to take away everybodys healthcare, and free healthcare for illegals. You watch these debates, and on one hand, I think, surely they are just making themselves un-electable, said Coulter.

I dont know what a politically suicidal position is, but I would think these are that, she added, and then the fear of God goes through me when I think, what if Trump loses and theyve nominated one of these nuts?

But look, if we dont do something about immigration, everything, the nuttiest things theyre saying on the stage are coming to this country, affirmed Coulter.

Coulter went on to say that in addressing immigration, President Donald Trump should build the wall, deport illegals, and sign the executive order on anchor babies.

Watch below:

Hes got to follow through on his promises, said Coulter, and one thing that was occurring to me when I was thinking about what I wanted to say to the kids they havent lived through this chronic problem with the Republican Party that I have lived through, which is idiot overconfidence.

With regards to idiot overconfidence within the Republican Party, Coulter cited Al Frankens senate election in Minnesota and Barack Obamas election to the United States presidency in 2008.

It may give you a sugar rush to imagine or to assume a huge landslide for Trump, another night of Democrats crying. I would like that, too, but dont get stuck on overconfidence, said Coulter.

We should go into this assuming were starting down. The entire media does hate Trump. Theyre not going to be caught sleeping this time, she added. So how does he make sure that he keeps everybody who voted for him last time, and maybe add a few? Keep your promises.

Happy Kwanzaa! The Holiday Brought to You By the FBI – Townhall

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

Kwanzaa, celebrated exclusively by white liberals, is a fake holiday invented in 1966 by black radical/FBI stooge Ron Karenga -- aka Dr. Maulana Karenga, founder of United Slaves, the violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers. Liberals have become so mesmerized by multicultural gibberish that they have forgotten the real history of Kwanzaa and Karenga's United Slaves.

In what was ultimately a foolish gambit, during the madness of the '60s, the FBI encouraged the most extreme black nationalist organizations in order to discredit and split the left. The more preposterous the group, the better. (It's the same function MSNBC serves today.)

By that criterion, Karenga's United Slaves was perfect.

Despite modern perceptions that blend all the black activists of the '60s, the Black Panthers did not hate whites. Although some of their most high-profile leaders were drug dealers and murderers, they did not seek armed revolution.

Those were the precepts of Karenga's United Slaves. The United Slaves were proto-fascists, walking around in dashikis, gunning down Black Panthers and adopting invented "African" names. (I will not be shooting any Black Panthers this week because I am Kwanzaa-reform, and we are not that observant.)

It's as if David Duke invented a holiday called "Anglika," which he based on the philosophy of "Mein Kampf" -- and clueless public schoolteachers began celebrating the made-up, racist holiday.

In the category of the-gentleman-doth-protest-too-much, back in the '70s, Karenga was quick to criticize Nigerian newspapers that claimed that certain American black radicals were CIA operatives.

Now we know the truth: The FBI fueled the bloody rivalry between the Panthers and United Slaves. In the annals of the American '60s, Karenga was the Father Gapon, stooge of the czarist police. Whether Karenga was a willing FBI dupe, or just a dupe, remains unclear.

But the left has forgotten the FBI's tacit encouragement of this murderous black nationalist cult founded by the father of Kwanzaa.

In one barbarous outburst, Karenga's United Slaves shot two Black Panthers to death on the UCLA campus: Al "Bunchy" Carter and John Huggins. Karenga himself served time -- a useful stepping-stone for his current position as the chair of the Africana Studies Department at California State University at Long Beach.

(Speaking of which, the cheap labor lobby certainly was right about how the GOP could easily win over "socially conservative" minorities. Look at how California has swung decisively to the right since whites became a minority there. Good luck winning California now, Democrats!)

Back to the esteemed Cal State professor: Karenga's invented holiday is a nutty blend of schmaltzy '60s rhetoric, black racism and Marxism. The seven principles of Kwanzaa are the very same seven principles of the Symbionese Liberation Army, another invention of The Worst Generation.

In 1974, Patty Hearst, kidnap victim-cum-SLA revolutionary, famously posed next to the banner of her alleged captors, a seven-headed cobra. Each snakehead stood for one of the SLA's revolutionary principles: Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumba and Imani. These are the exact same seven "principles" of Kwanzaa, or "Kawaida," as Karenga calls them. (And here's something interesting: Kawaida, Kwanzaa and Kuumba are also the only three Kardashian sisters not to have their own shows on the E! network.)

Kwanzaa praises collectivism in every possible area of life. It takes a village to raise a police snitch.

When Karenga was asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from "classical Marxism," he essentially said that, under Kawaida, we also hate whites.

While taking the "best of early Chinese and Cuban socialism" (is that the mass murder, the imprisonment of homosexuals or the forced labor?), Karenga said Kawaida practitioners believe one's racial identity "determines life conditions, life chances and self-understanding."

There's an inclusive philosophy for you!

Sing to "Jingle Bells":

Kwanzaa bells, dashikis sell

Whitey has to pay;

Burning, shooting, oh what fun

On this made-up holiday!

Kwanzaa emerged not from Africa, but from the FBI's COINTELPRO. It is a holiday celebrated exclusively by idiot white liberals. Black people celebrate Christmas.

Merry Christmas, fellow Christians!

WatchPanel Featuring Ann Coulter, Brandon Darby: A Nation Led by Paramilitary Cartels Is at Our Southern Border – Breitbart

Posted: at 4:43 pm


without comments

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter and Breitbart Border and Cartel Chronicles Director Brandon Darby spoke on an immigration panel moderated byOANN host Jack Posobiec at Turning Point USAs fifth annual Student Action Summit.

In West Palm Beach, Florida on Friday, the three discussed the various factors involving the crisis on the southern border of theUnited States.

I think what people in Washington, New York, L.A., and San Francisco dont understand is how the country is being so slammed with drugs, said Coulter. Ordinary, sweet little towns out in rural America in fact, I think a lot of the people in L.A., San Francisco, New York, and Washington are happy to know that Americans out in the middle of the country are dying off of overdoses.

Coulter added that 90 percent of the drugs coming into the U.S. are coming from the cartels operating south of the unsecured U.S. border.

This is what Mexico does all the time and the U.S. State Department does this all the time, added Darby. Theyre like, Look, we caught this cartel boss.'

The cartel boss is part of the problem, but the cartel boss is not the problem, he explained.

Theres a cartel boss, and then around that cartel boss, theres this circle of power. Theres politicians, bankers, financiers, lawyers, diplomats those are the real problem. Theyre very happy if you take El Chapo. They dont care, they just replace that part of the pie. They dont care, its this circle. And so, if we cant go after the circle, if we cant go after the people who launder the money, who give the money, who work with them, and meet with them, and give them material support, were never going to actually address the problem.

And if we dont actually address that problem, were never going to do anything about the immigration problem we have in this country, and were going to lose our country, said Darby. So if we want to stop that, yes, we need to change policies here yes, we need to build the wall.

But all of those things are treatments for an underlying problem, he added, and that underlying problem is a nation that is led byparamilitary cartels south of our border. If people from El Salvador wanted to come north to work and Mexico had jobs, they would just stay in Mexico, which would be fine with me thats the kind of thing we have to start looking at.

The Democrats a lot of them think theyre helping other places in the world by allowing everyone to come here, but theyre not helping them, theyre actually hurting those places, and theyre hurting us in the process, said Darby.

Posobiec noted how the U.S. engages in nation-building in other countries but doesnt appear to give Mexico the same attention, despite the nation being so much closer to home.

Howridiculous is it that well do these nation-building projects in Afghanistan, and Botswana, and Burundi, [but] the one where you could at least make the argument that theres a direct benefit to the American citizens is just south of our border? asked Posobiec.

Coulter offered her response.

Its like youre reading my mind, she said. Whenever I see Brandons articles, I want to tweet them out and say, You know, this is two miles from where Americans live. This is 20 miles from where Americans live, not 7,000. Why isnt the media talking about it? I mean, other than Brandon Darby at Breitbart.

Its very, very strange this is happening right on our border, continued Coulter. Its as if you haveISIS andal-Qaeda together, doing their beheadings and mass murders, and itscheek by jowl with us, with no border in between, but no, no, no, tell me whats going on in China. Tell me whats going on in East Timor.

Of course this influences us, added Coulter of the Mexican drug cartels. Why cant we bring the military back and send them to Mexico?

This portion of the panel begins at timecode 08:33 in the video above.
