The President of the United States has declared a national Emergency over an “invasion” at the southern border Friday morning. Now his administration is allowed to use additional funding for the border wall, which initially Congress refused to fund in full in the bill passed to keep the government from shutting down again.
Presidents Trump’s announcement included many hot topics that have been surrounding the border wall debate. Trump said, “Take a look at our federal prison population, see how many of them, percentage-wise, are illegal aliens, see. Go ahead and see.”
According to studies, the rate for undocumented immigrants in federal prison is higher, meaning that one in five prisoners in federal jails was known or accused of being an undocumented immigrant, suggested a claim made by a 2018 Justice Department report.
However, the report found that Approximately 90 percent of the country’s inmate population is in state prisons and local jails — not federal prisons.
The primary concern for all of America is the flood of illegal substances that are smuggled through legal points of entry, dumping pounds of cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine into the homes and lives of innocent Americans, fueling the addiction problem.
“The big drug loads don’t go through ports of entry, they can’t go through ports of entry, you can’t take big loads cause you have people we have some competent people, the border patrol, law enforcement,” announced the President of the United States.
Just recently the biggest fentanyl bust in history was discovered, reports claim 254 pounds of the lethal drug heroin were seized by Customs and Border Protection, along with enough Fentalyn to kill 50 million people. The drugs were found packed into a loaded trailer filled with vegetables to conceal the drugs and weight, driving through the U.S. port of entry in Nogales, Arizona.
The Drug Enforcement Administration’s 2018 Drug Threat Assessment indicates that the majority of drugs enter the U.S.S through ports of entry at the southwest border.
Despite his claims, many have deemed his facts misleading and incorrect. Data proves that illegal border crossings have been declining for decades, and many of the drugs smuggled in the country are coming from the legal points in our border entries.
Trump concludes his announcement by saying, “We will have a national emergency, and we will then be sued, and they will sue us in the 9th Circuit, even though it shouldn’t be there and we’ll possibly get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling and then we’ll end up at the Supreme Court, and hopefully we’ll get a fair shake.”
