President Trump unleashed the greatest triggering of 2015 when he pointed out during his presidential announcement speech that illegal aliens were, “bringing drugs and crime” into the U.S.
The left predictably called Trump a racist, sticking to their playbook of throwing legal citizens under the bus to appease their politically correct base.
There is one Democrat in Texas however that’s breaking with his party on illegal immigration.
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) is aghast at the fact that there are 30 countries refusing to take back illegals that have committed crimes in America.
Equally as shocking is that our State Department is refusing to enforce a law on the books stating that the U.S. can stop issuing visas to countries that are refusing to take back deported criminal aliens.
From The Daily Caller:
There are many foreign countries that refuse to retake illegal immigrants convicted of crimes, according to the congressman, including Vietnam, Cuba and China. Cuellar said that diplomacy plays a factor in the government’s refusal to enforce the law, as the Department of State and other federal agencies do not want to upset foreign partners.
But, for Cuellar, diplomacy is no excuse to put American lives in danger.
“But my response is, but we can upset our constituents, we can upset our way of life that we have here by allowing those criminals to be released?” said Cuellar. “And basically the response from the State Department is because you have to work with the State Department and Homeland Security. And the State Department, with all due respect, was focused on diplomacy.”
Rep. Cuellar’s concerns are spot on. It’s not enough for our government officials to simply say that they care about national security. They must act like it and start placing Americans first.
Many citizens have tragically died because of illegal immigrants. These individuals have disregarded our nation’s laws the moment they crossed our border without being properly vetted.
Why should they bother following our remaining laws when they know that Democrats like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will always vouch for them?
It’s time to stop allowing other countries to take advantage of us and for President Trump to force these countries to take back their criminals.
