It’s Time For The President To Use His Trump Card On Immigration

When you have a flooding basement, the first thing any sane person would do is immediately work to stop the flow of new water before figuring out a strategy to deal with the water that already got in. That’s exactly how we should handle our flooded border. The president has a trump card, rooted in Article II of the Constitution to control foreign affairs, and reiterated as delegated congressional authority under 8 U.S.C. §1182(f) (Sec. 212(f) of the INA) to shut down all immigration. It’s time for him to pull the trigger and shut down all forms of border migration once and for all.
On Sunday, Trump tweeted out a very succinct point that cuts to the heart of the border problem:
We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order. Most children come without parents…

….Our Immigration policy, laughed at all over the world, is very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally and are waiting on line for years! Immigration must be based on merit – we need people who will help to Make America Great Again!

The president is absolutely right. As long as the cartels and the migrants know that they have the ability to come here and tie up our legal system for years, they will continue coming. Not only does this saddle our communities with crushing costs, dangerous drugs, and high crime, it is terrible for the migrants themselves. Everyone should agree that this must stop. Yet Congress refuses to act.
