President Trump missed an opportunity to attach border security funding to the Criminal Justice Reform Bill that passed both houses overwhelmingly with bipartisan support.
Now, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the left threaten the very success of those who would benefit by the passage of the Criminal Justice Reform Bill by refusing to pass a bill that would fund “the wall” and open the government.
Remember, most of the people being released from prison have drug-related convictions, and 90 percent of heroin flows through our southern border with Mexico. If the drug flow isn’t stopped, our current drug epidemic will pale by comparison, leaving justice reform in a smoldering heap.
Additionally, those being released and seeking a second chance will have to compete for the very jobs that are being taken by scores of illegal immigrants flooding across our southern border.
The talking heads on TV will tell you that most of the drugs come through ports of entry and that may be true, but where do you think they will enter when that avenue is closed? I’m guessing anywhere there isn’t a wall. The same can be said of the endless caravan’s bull-rushing our border.
Speaker Pelosi needs to quit playing games with peoples lives and put an end to the carnage with her open border policy. Americans deserve better!
