The Senate Voted to End Emergency on the Border. But Hezbollah, ISIS, gangs and drug cartels didn’t get the memo.

On September 25, 2019 the Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch posted a disturbing report, “Senate votes to end border emergency under which Trump redirected military funds to wall construction” that began with the following paragraph:
The Senate again approved a resolution to end President Trump’s national emergency at the southern border, with Republicans joining Democrats in a bid to prevent the president from redirecting military funds toward a border wall, though Trump was expected to veto it again.
The report went on to note that the Republicans control the Senate and ended with this sentence:
The vote was an unusual display of Republican rebellion against the president’s quest for his signature policy initiative, which led to the longest government shutdown in U.S. history that ended earlier this year.
The Democrats refused to accept that there was a crisis on the southern border in the first place, and now the Republican-controlled Senate has voted, yet again, to “end the crisis”!
What has not been determined, or reported upon, is how our politicians from either political party have come to the insane conclusion that the emergency on the treacherous southern border has ended.
Certainly the “all clear” has not sounded.
While President Trump has been successful in reducing the number of illegal aliens who are being apprehended by the Border Patrol along the southern border--though a number of tactics including getting Mexico to deploy their forces along the border and with other diplomatic initiatives--tens of thousands of illegal aliens continue to be apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol each month and narcotics continue to be seized along that troubled border.
