Tear Gas Good. Migrants Bad.

A senior Trump administration official testified before Congress and not surprisingly, U.S. border agents firing tear gas toward migrants in Mexico near a border crossing is all good.

On November 25th, Border Patrol agents fired tear gas to disperse a group of migrants near the U.S.-Mexico border crossing that separates Tijuana from San Diego, as some migrants tried rushing the fence.

The incident resulted in Mexico’s foreign ministry sending a note to the U.S.government calling for “a full investigation” into what the letter described as non-lethal weapons directed towards Mexican territory. He’s got a point if you think about it.

Kevin McAleenan is the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and because he wants to keep his job, he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that the use of tear gas was within the agency’s regulations and came as agents faced a “difficult situation.”

“Pepper spray and CSgas are authorized to address assaultive behavior.” McAleenan also said the migrants threw rocks at the agents, resulting in four agents being hit and one requiring surgery.

Outrage sparked worldwide as the tear gas landed near the children and it has been reported some children fainted.

Trump Loses Again on Asylum Ban

The U.S. Appeals Court in the Ninth Circuit upheld Judge Jon Tigar’s ruling on banning asylum claims for immigrants that enter the country through the U.S. – Mexico border. The decision was upheld 2-1.

“Just as we may not,as we are often reminded, ‘legislate from the bench’, neither may the executive legislate from the Oval Office,” Judge Jay Bybee, a George W Bush nominee,wrote for the majority.

This case stems from President Trump requiring that migrants must enter through “official ports of entry.”

Give it up on the Sanctuary Cities Trump- Losing!

Losing. Losing. Losing. Losing. Losing. Losing. Losing.

That’s how many times Trump’s administration lost this week in their attempt to withhold federal funding for sanctuary cities.

The Trump administration was attempting to withhold $29 million in federal funding for New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Virginia and Washington.

Manhattan Federal Judge Edgardo Ramos ruled that “the separation of powers acts as a check on tyranny and the concentration of power. These conditions violate the separation of powers.”

“The City believes that these laws and policies are instrumental in maintaining the City’s historically low crime rates by promoting trust and cooperation between the New York Police Department and the public, including immigrant communities that otherwise may retreat into the shadows if they believe that the police will share their information with federal immigration authorities.”

“Conspicuously absent from all of these documents is any discussion of the negative impacts that may result from imposing the conditions, and the record is devoid of any analysis that the perceived benefits outweigh these drawbacks.” Judge Ramos.

The grant money was issued by an act of Congress which the President cannot overrule. How long before Trump attacks Judge Ramos?

State Attorney General Barbara Underwood who continues to beat President Trump in court, especially with her lawsuit on the Trump Foundation, said:

“As we argued, local law enforcement has the right to decide how to meet their local public safety needs — and the Trump administration simply does not have the right to require state and local police to act as federal immigration agents. The Trump administration’s attempt to withhold these vital funds was nothing more than a political attack at the expense of our public safety.”

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said Judge Ramos’ ruling was a slap to President Donald Trump’s “fact-free claims” about immigration. “The courts have spoken: President Trump’s attempt to bully our city into enforcing his draconian immigration policies is unconstitutional.”

New York will receive $4.3 million in funding.

At a campaign rally in Billings, Montana, President Trump said:

“We’re going to win. We’re going to win so much. We’re going to win at trade, we’re going to win at the border. We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning, you’re going to come to me and go ‘Please, please, we can’t win anymore.’ You’ve heard this one. You’ll say ‘Please, Mr. President, we beg you sir, we don’t want to win anymore. It’s too much. It’s not fair to everybody else.’ “And I’m going to say ‘I’m sorry, but we’re going to keep winning, winning, winning, We’re going to make America great again.”

For the record- I’m not tired of winning. I’m actually enjoying it.
