In my opinion, and the opinion of the US Supreme Court, 414 clearly allows the President complete control of our Borders (Plenary power, as the Supreme Court has stated) when aliens attempt to enter the US, illegally, to do harm to the US economy as well as do physical damage thereto and to assault our Border Security men and women! Therefore, funding for enforcing 414 must be available lest the Law would be a useless piece of paper. In times of emergency, such as thousands assaulting our Border illegally, there must be funds available WITHOUT declaring a National Emergency or Disaster; keeping in mind the purpose of the funding is to enforce 414 which only requires a Proclamation and not even an EO, let alone the declaration of National Emergency! If the President believes fencing is necessary to enforce 414, then by law he certainly doesn’t need a Judge or Congress permission to do what the Constitution requires…”Protect, Preserve and defend” the Constitution on the US! Barriers stop/slow down people that is why militaries since before Christ have used barriers, of all kinds, to stop people!!!

In my humble opinion, the President should do a Continuing Resolution to keep the Government funded. A shut down again, would be punishing the wrong people. It will be financially tough and also screw up 401 transfers, retirement plans, home purchases, college funding commitments and many more important personal decisions, not just groceries and bills for a lot of people. I don’t believe the Democrat leaders, Schumer or Pelosi, give a shit about Government employees or their constituents! The elite’s only concern is money for themselves, power, and their unbelievable egos. They’ve shown their complete disregard for the citizens they have sworn to protect.

For example, what possible, legit reason can you come up with to form “sanctuary cities”…in complete violation of our Rule of Law? There is no such thing as sanctuary from the law in your country…NONE! Why would they not support laws requiring harsh punishment for illegal aliens who kill or harm US citizens?

Find a way to punish the arrogant left by doing away with programs/Agencies that are no longer of value to the country and gain access to those funds! President Nixon created the EPA by EO, in 1970. If that is all that’s keeping it open, then dissolve EPA by EO and direct all those funds to the Border… to help study the Environmental Impact of Steel Fencing and erecting steel fencing. If possible redirect the $5 billion plus that goes to the UN IPCC for Global Warming studies. They misuse the funds to “prove” Global Warming instead of studying their name sake, Climate Change. NASA called the IPCC’s most quoted study based on the 18 year model, “useless” and of no value. I am sure there are other Global Warming studies that the Democrats have going that are as phony as the IPCC. Find them and shut them down and take their funding! There is no Global Warming only Climate Change…that’s a scientific fact!

Close the Border under the 1952 Immigration and Naturalization Law (Public Law 414) by Proclamation only, until barricades can be built, only allowing in those with current legal access.

In other words, force everybody to abide by our current LAW! Take funds from wherever possible; Congressional Funds that were previously approved but not used, unnecessary funded programs that the President has power to close by EO.

There are places the President can draw emergency funds to enforce Public Law 414! Only allow those into the US who have an existing, legal reason to be here and KEEP THE BORDER CLOSED until all the fences/walls are built…period! That will get the left the incentive they need to come up with PERMANENT INS Laws that make sense. Just CLOSE the damn Border.


Let them run to the 9th Circus and file, have DOJ fight it but ignore the Injunction and start building and keep building the fence. It is necessary for barriers in order to enforce PL 414! They cannot stop the enforcement of that law with any court orders!!! It can only be stopped if the President allows it to be stopped. That was Congress’s intent by making it Enforceable by Proclamation only without an EO, to avoid the cumbersome interference of any judicial jurisdiction!
