Don't mess with Texas

Don't mess with Texas
“The Court gives a green light to a law that will upend the longstanding federal-state balance of power and sow chaos,” Sotomayor wrote in a blistering dissent joined by Jackson.


Yesterday, in a departure for precedent, a
divided Supreme Court allowed Texas to begin enforcing a law that gives police broad powers to arrest illegal migrants. The reason for the departure from precedent must be because of the serious issue of a US president leaving the US border wide open to migration from all over the world. The high court didn’t address whether the law is constitutional. That was left for the appellate Court. The SCOTUS decision was split down ideological lines with the six traditional American Justices voted to allow the Texas law to stand until an appeals Court ruling on the Constitutionality of the law, and the 3 progressive justices voting against the Texas law to remain in play at all.

It didn't take long for the 5th Circuit to issue their ruling. By a 2-1 decision they ruled that only the federal government can enforce immigration law even if the federal government doesn't do a damned thing to enforce our immigration laws. Eventually a Republican congress will have to rewrite all of our immigration laws. In the meantime, Mexico’s government said Tuesday it would not "under any circumstances" accept the return of any migrants to its territory from the state of Texas. Mexico is not required to accept deportations of anyone except Mexican citizens. Of course, the corrupt government of Mexico sings a much different tune when Donald Trump is President. Trump made it simple: No cooperation on the border and no trade with the US. Mexico was very cooperative back then.

The good news is that many of the migrants have gotten the message and are entering other border states to illegally enter the US:

During the first four months of fiscal year 2024, Border Patrol recorded more than 250,000 migrant apprehensions in the Tucson sector, the most of any region patrolled by the agency, according to federal  government statistics . While illegal crossings into Texas are down from last year,  they have remained high  in the Tucson and San Diego sectors, which have been recording 60% of all migrant apprehensions.

Arizona sector becomes No. 1 hotspot for migrant crossings, despite border walls and treacherous terrain - CBS News

Not surprisingly, Arizona now has a progressive democrat governor.


In other news:

Administration leaders came under a blistering attack during congressional hearings on the Afghanistan withdrawal yesterday.

Peter Navarro reported to prison to begin a 4-month prison term as one of very few people to ever be punished for refusal to comply with a congressional subpoena.

Alabama’s legislature passed a bill that would ban funding for diversity programs at public universities and limit the teaching of some topics on race and gender.

Hong Kong passed national security laws that grant the authorities new powers to crack down on dissent. 

Benjamin Netanyahu said the Israeli military would send troops into Rafah in perfect defiance of Joe Biden's bullying.

In a magnanimous act the US returned Japanese artifacts found in the attic of an American World War II veteran, to Okinawa.

Good morning

Today's question:

Have you ever had to come up with half a billion dollars by Monday or forfeit all your real estate assets?

Has anyone in history ever had to do it?

Otherwise know as the Democrat faux legal punitive damages for having the temerity to run against Brandon.

Either the laws apply equally to everyone or no one. What are Democrats going to do when people decide to ignore their two tier justice system- and laws will apply to no one?

Most sane folk would have the wall be built around North Texas.

Abbott and his far right wing fascists are not Americans.

Don't even get me started about Florida being deleted...

That is exactly where Biden's handlers would want the border to be.

Biden takes the floor in Reno and immediately floats the debunked "losers and suckers" hoax.

WASHINGTON, March 20 (Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives seeking to chart a part forward in their impeachment probe of President Joe Biden will on Wednesday question two former associates of his son Hunter.

House Republicans say  the president and members of his family improperly profited from policy decisions in which Biden, a Democrat, participated while vice president from 2009-17.

But they have yet to produce evidence to show that the president personally benefited from the actions of the family. The White House has said the investigation is baseless and politically motivated.

US House panel holds Biden impeachment hearing, but next steps unclear | Reuters

Why hasn't the committee issued a subpoena to Hunter Biden?

Right now, Tony Bobulinski is testifying before congress.

It is already getting hot as he called some of the democrat members liars in his opening statement.

Do you support Donald Trump reversing every single policy and executive order that Biden put in place?

Administration leaders came under a blistering attack during congressional hearings on the Afghanistan withdrawal yesterday.

And naturally the Democrats are taking the opportunity to play victim and protect the incompetent coward who made the call for the retreat that resulted in 13 US Servicemembers and over 100 Afghani civilians to be killed.

It's not like Traitor Joe will ever apologize or take any responsibility for the death and destruction he created.

He'll do the same thing he did for the US citizens that were abandoned in Afghanistan - have pudding and take a nap.

Funny how a US citizen managed to get our civilians out of Afghanistan and Haiti (at least a small portion of them so far); but Brandon with all our US military resources; government money; ambassadors/state department; and intelligence agencies hasn't managed to rescue a single one.

Maybe Brandon should call for Mills charity to be fully funded by the US government? 

Of course Brandon doesn't care about missionaries and volunteers that are trapped there. Unless they all declare themselves transgender, atheists, whose pronouns are they/them. Then he will make sure every last one of those newly minted Democrat votes get home safely.
