Important headlines for July 11th – Surprise – Enforcing immigration law discourages illegal immigration!
Bottom Line: These are stories you shouldn't miss and my takes on them...
Hot Take: The biggest takeaway from the MSD State Commision is that you can add Cruz's late mother to the list of people who didn't stand in the way of the attack happening. She was labeled an "enabler" for allowing him to purchase firearms despite his long string of mental health concerns.
Excerpt: At 22, Hernandez had dreamed of following the trail of thousands of others who have left this town in central Honduras to head north. As many as 20 percent of Yoro's 90,000 residents have gone to the United States, according to a rough estimate from city officials, though there are no official statistics.
But reports from the U.S. border of mass deportations and migrants being separated from their children had rattled Hernandez.
“We’ve all seen the news about the children locked up and separated from their parents,” she said. “The trip there is so dangerous and you don’t know if you will win or lose.”
According to the Pew Research Center, Honduran migration to the United States increased by 25 percent from 2007 to 2015. About 630,000 Hondurans are living in the United States, many of them without legal documents, according to Pew.
Hot Take: Perfect, more evidence that the policy is starting to work. That's the entire point of the Trump administration's enforcement policy. To ensure that illegal immigration isn't attempted in the first place. Under the Obama administration only approximately 25% of those detained crossing illegally were processed. We saw what that led to with huge spikes in illegal caravans and crossings putting everyone at risk in the process. With 100% being processed – would be illegal immigrants know that if they're caught they'll be deported and likely worse off than if they hadn't attempted to illegally cross in the first place. That's the benefit of law and order. Deterring crime is the most effective form of law enforcement.
Kavanaugh Must Answer the Abortion Question Corey Brettschneider, New York Times
Hot Take: I'm totally onboard with this idea provided that pro-abortionists finally decide that all girls/women are educated about what an abortion is and what will happen based on how far along they are at the time of the abortion. Why wouldn't you want transparency for those considering an abortion and an informed person making the decision? Why have you fought so hard over the years to keep that information from girls/women prior to an abortion?
