Fresh update on "rio grande valley" discussed on Buck Sexton

"Radio You're hearing the most powerful names and talk. Mark Levin on WCBS was a pleasure to have Florida Governor Iran descent us with us. How are you, sir? I'm doing good, Mark. How are you doing? Doing very, very well. Governor. A couple of things I want to cover with you. The border. I read here we have a 900% increase in Covid cases on the border. Particularly the Rio Grande Valley area, which is the heavy concentration. We have 40 Border Patrol agents who have gotten this virus. Um and the CDC is issuing orders about masks. The CDC issued an order about Landlords that they couldn't expel or remove tenants who couldn't pay because of the pandemic over the last year federal courts and you don't have that authority. How come the CDC isn't issuing a rule telling this administration to secure the border? Because people are coming across the border? Who obviously have this virus? They're coming out of poor countries. They want the money to get a vaccine. You've got to believe most of them haven't been vaccinated. How come everything is where masks you know where they just do that and so forth. Okay, But when it comes to the border, it's no holds bar. Well, you're exactly right. I mean, if you've got a kid in kindergarten, they just said today they want the kid muzzled with a mask. Even though the covid not any risk to the kid. Do you have a loved one overseas? They may not let them come and fly. Um, just normal travel because of covid. They'll claim Yet if you want to just come straight across that border and have thousands of people pouring in, they don't give a damn about covid. At that point, they're letting them right in. And I can tell you I've sent people there to help Governor Abbott because the federal government has dropped the ball. So we have Florida another state stepping up to help Texas. Actually took a trip out there about two weeks ago, and, uh, it is unbelievable What's going on out there? And it's you know, you have the drugs, which is important. The criminal aliens, which are going to cause huge problems throughout our country, But the sheer number of people coming through there and all they do is they just give him a citation. They say, Hey, call this number and set up a date for your own deportation hearing. Well, no one's coming for that. These guys are gone. They're going and they're out into our country. And so this goes on for the next 3 3.5 years you're going to have millions and millions of people, and it's not people just from Mexico or even primarily, it's from over 100 different countries. Yeah. When I was there, we saw people from the Middle East. You saw Asians. You saw Haitians, really? From anywhere. People know if you just get to that Southern border. That's your ticket into the United States illegally. And the by the administration just going to let you right in. So how could you possibly have Restrictions on U. S citizens because of covid, but yet have people pouring across and not just people pouring across. They're coming from every part of the globe coming across the Who knows what the hell kind of Pathogens they're bringing in. In addition to Covid, and yet the CDC does not care at all about that, and I think the reason is ideology. You're quite right and neither do the media. I mean, how many shows have Fauci been on? I mean, you know he's on endlessly and I have a little joke. You don't need to respond. He's on TV more than Lindsey Graham and I'm saying Fat and Lindsey Graham's a politician. Fauci is supposed to be a scientist, right? He's supposed to be studying every night their data. Not. One reporter has said to Fauci, Wait a minute you're talking about people need to wear masks here in on these meetings and so forth. You say nothing at all about the border, Not a word about people coming across. Many of whom are here illegally, so they're not being tested. We don't know if they have what they have. And then we have people being released in the community. We have a judge. We have a state judge and one of these towns in Texas that's calling on the federal government and telling them stop releasing people into these communities that have covid 19. In other words. In some cases, governor they know they have the virus and they're still releasing them. Oh, yeah, I think without question And I think that that's uh that's a deliberate choice. For sure, it's interesting. Fauci also didn't have really much to say about the BLM and Antifa riots last summer. Remember all these people? It said you needed to be locked into your home. You couldn't go outside. You couldn't meet with more than two or three people at a time. And yet as soon as these massive demonstrations and riots broke out Lot of the same public health. People justified it, and they said that racism was a public health concern. And so these people needed to be in the streets. And so, uh, so much of this is not science markets, political science. And that's what I think. The CDC unfortunately, has been operating under now for many, many months. And what do you make of Joe Biden's effort to convince people to take the vaccine to get the way he calls them? They're not so smart if they don't do bullet, belittling people. Turning them into second class citizens. Talking to them this way as President, United States is that effective? Is that a way to persuade people to do what you you claim you want them to do, Governor? No, not only that, though. If you look there now saying where Mass. So they say, you have to get vaccinated. Otherwise you're stupid, but those who are vaccinated, you need to be wearing mass. Because they're basically saying the vaccines don't work, so they have terrible messaging on all this. And you know my view on this from the very beginning was when, when it first hit Florida. I said, We're going to give it to elderly first, and there was a huge demand for elderly. We go to nursing homes. We go to senior communities we put in our retail pharmacies. We did a whole bunch of good stuff. But we said it's going to be available for all but mandated for none, and we're going to give you the information and let you make a decision about what you want to do so and the seniors in Florida we have over 85% that have done it. But you know, I was at nursing homes where we brought vaccine. Some of the residents decided not to and that was their choice. We didn't make value judgments on that. We tried to provide information free of mandates free of any type of coercion. Um, and I think what Biden is doing is basically sending the message that you know you're you're somehow less of an American. You know, if you make choices that are different than what they want, and there's mark. There's some people who have medical conditions where they where they can't do some of these. Some of these vaccines. There's men, millions of Americans who have recovered from covid and have immunity and it is good, durable immunity. You have all these different factors, and they really don't show any recognition of that. But I think the more they get on their high horse, the more they try to browbeat people. I think that that they lose even more people, and I think anyone that's on the fence about it. Um, you know well, many of them will decide not to get it at that point. I don't have a lot of time. So I want to move into this BDs movement. Um, we have, uh Unilever. We have Ben and Jerry's, which is really involved in a hideous anti Semitic attack on the state of Israel. Going further than any BDs effort yet, and you have a law in your state. And what have you decided to do about this? So we have a law against against BDs boycott divest sanction of Israel. We also have other ways countries or companies could be viewed as as suspect if they're engaging with with other nefarious regimes or whatever, but when they're targeting Israel, it allows me to put them on a list. So that the state of Florida will not do investments with them. And.

Donald Trump to Visit Texas Border Wall

Both trips come at a time when many Republicans are describing the situation at the border as a quote crisis with unauthorized crossings at their highest level in decades.

He's expected to visit the Rio Grande Valley in Texas on Wednesday, along with Texas Governor Greg Abbott and a group of congressional Republicans, and they're essentially trolling the Biden administration by highlighting the high number of border crossings this year. Here's some of what Trump said last night at a rally in Ohio Illegal aliens are Overrunning their borders. Nobody's ever seen anything like it. Our poor borders was so perfect. They were so good. The rhetoric from that rally should sound very familiar to anyone who's followed former President Trump and the way he often talks about immigrants as a threat. And a burden.

She met with immigration officials in El Paso, also with immigrant advocates there. Here's some of what she had to say afterwards to reporters. The work that we have to do is the work of addressing the cause. The root causes. Otherwise, we'll continue to see the effect what is happening at the border.

Backlog of migrant children in Border Patrol custody soars to 4,200

"Another major challenge for president biden tonight the crisis at the border and a growing number of unaccompanied children making the dangerous crossing desperate to reach the us. Garrett hake has the latest from el paso tonight the federal government surging resources to the border hoping to absorb a record wave of migrants including unaccompanied. Minors making the dangerous journey to america. More than thirty two hundred such children crossing the border last week alone mean. Why are so many kids coming here to the border. Now i think two things number one. The conditions in their homeland have become untenable and number two. Their families want to be with them. Now the biden administration is deploying fema for ninety days to help move arriving children from crowded patrol stations into homes or shelters while their cases work through the system at the border in el paso earlier today. Our cameras captured three migrants using a ladder to climb the fence shortly after border patrol agents took them into custody. If they're adults bill almost certainly be sent back in texas. Rio grande valley video shows some migrants crossing the river in rickety rafts apprehended then held in tent camps. Our cities and counties on the border don't have the resources to deal with this. Republicans called the increase in border crossings. A crisis that they say the biden administration has worsened by loosening. Some trump era immigration policies including no longer requiring would be asylum seekers to remain in mexico. The biden open border policies. That are inviting even more illegal immigration and actually have created this humanitarian crisis. Democrats and immigration activists culture that policy in humane.

Why a private section of the border wall is allegedly failing

Why a private section of the border wall is allegedly failing

"By Iraq war veteran Bryan Cole Fatchett, triple amputee. They wanted to raise a billion dollars to quote build Trump's wall. The targeted mission Texas in the Rio Grande Valley, one of the busiest illegal border crossing areas in the country, all on the border. We're here building. You gotta help out. They had started producing the video's promoting this project and they were on the property. They started clearing the property before anyone really knew what was going on The company Clearing the riverbank to build the private wall was Fisher Sand and Gravel. Tommy Fisher, the company's CEO, had been trying and failing to land a lucrative border wall contract from the government. Since 2017. When the Trump administration began soliciting Wall design concepts. Fisher was one of the companies to put up a prototype. Officials of the Department of Homeland Security said it had design flaws. A second bid was also rejected. Frustrated Tommy Fisher took another approach. We really believe with our patent pending system, we could bring sexy. Back to construction. He became a fixture on Fox News, the president's favorite network at the time, people time sounding less like a contractor and more like a contestant on a reality show pandering to an audience of one, You know, hopefully the president will see this as well. And he's a guy who says he can cut through bureaucracy two weeks after that appearance on Fox In April of 2019. I don't know if you heard about this contractor that said he could build the whole wall for a lot cheaper than anybody else. Yes, I have. We're dealing with him. Actually, Fisher Comes from North Dakota. Recommended strongly by a great new senator. As you know, Kevin Cramer, by May of 2019 Tommy Fisher had the president's attention but still couldn't land a contract to build the government's wall. The Army Corps of Engineers, which oversees border wall construction, pointed to the company's lack of experience building border walls to prove they could fissure teamed up with we build the wall. First in New Mexico and later here on the banks of the Rio Grande admission. On the banks of any rivers difficult. But building on the raging Rio Grande is especially challenging, made more complicated because the U. S Mexico border but straight down the middle of it. So any plans to build on it must be approved by the International boundary and Water Commission for I, B. W C. Sand and gravel didn't get that approval before they started. Bulldozes. What steps did they skip? All of them. What should they have done? They should have gone to the I B W c to the A and presented their plan an actual plan. What about this idea that you know this is private money being used on private land and a landowner could do whatever he wants. They absolutely can do whatever they want on their property. As long as it doesn't affect other people's property. And you think the wall infringes on other clearly does. The way the bollards were built is gonna cause clogging of that wall, So those followed the trash or debris could get stuck in there and then the waters. It's a giant break, just like a rake in your yard. It's going to catch all that debris and redirect that water. Penna filed a lawsuit on behalf of a neighboring wildlife refuge called the National Butterfly Center, which feared the wall would cause flooding to its property. U. S government also suit on behalf of the I. B. W C. Good walls make good neighbours. But this wall did not. We've got rogue priest running around anti Trump anti Won't we build the walls? Bryan Cole fragile, launched attacks against anyone who opposed their wall. Falsely saying the national Butterfly Centre was the site of a rampant sex trade and that the Army Corps of Engineers was part of the deep state even took game and Father Royce Nights a local priest to oppose the Trump wall. Accusing him of promoting child trafficking. Also not true. We build the wall people came after you personally and that's something I didn't even know who they were. They're coming after the local priest. Yeah, I guess you're not from around here comes from around here. We can. Even Mom and Dad can disagree about things without being mean and nasty. Last December, Brian Colfax bragged in an interview that we build the wall had a direct line to the White House. We have Crispo back and Steve Bannon A lot of people that are tied in with the Trump administration, so we're able to back channel things to the Trump Administration and let them know what we're doing, But what they were doing was falling apart. A recent engineering inspection after summer storms revealed deep gashes under the foundation of the wall. That's Mariana Trevino, right, who runs the Butterfly center line underneath it. This was a normal seasonal rainfall and what happened to the wall the foundation washed out from under enormous sections of it, His attorney said after this, that this is just a normal part of new construction if you walked out of your new house And had a 30 FT hole under your home foundation. Would you consider that normal? There's the end of the hall right

"The more. We read this Bill the worse it gets. And we're going to go through it through thoroughly. They've already voted on past it. They've already passed it most most people couldn't even didn't even take the time to read it. The Democrats didn't give anybody any time to read it the Senate could've slowed it down. But it didn't. My solution is a please Mr President veto this please veto this and Mitch McConnell gopher continuing resolution Cleese we should point out that the president president's expected to speak at about half an hour happen to be lifted listening to live to the program, and we do intend on taking the speech. It should be about this expected that he will desire the national emergency and talk about the Bill being signed. So Pat, I want to ask you this Pat gray unleashed, Pat Gray's here. So just a trait here and take out for example. The potential ramifications of the national emergency as far as precedent goes what a democrat might do something like this take out the potential legal issues that are floating around. It's never really been used for this type of thing. We don't know how that's going to turn out take all that out for a second. If I just offered you this trade right now in the Bill that's being that's being the spending Bill it's going on right now he's getting about two percent of the border wall. And if he gets he does the national emergency expected to get about eight percent more of the border wall. So it's a it's a small percentage of the border but wall, but it could put it in important places in it. And I think we all agree that that would be beneficial, but not ideal. But if I were just forget all the other stuff if are just to trade you eight percent of the border wall. But in exchange for no longer in the future will any tax dollars be allowed to be used to arrest or deport any illegal alien child. Any caretaker of a child anyone who lives in the house of a caretaker of child that happens to be legal or someone who could put ten surely be a caretaker of a child that happens to be an illegal alien or someone who happens to be living in a house with someone who could potentially be a caretaker of an illegal alien child. What about somebody who's heard about an illegally? Hobos there. How can you possibly enforce border immigration? I wouldn't take that deal either. No. That is not just ten percent of the wall now, and that is just one tiny piece teen hundred twelve hundred page spending proposal, and nobody like Glenn said, nobody's read it. But I get a kick out of these people who say the Bill. And they don't they never do. Do you remember when a few years ago rand Paul proposed legislation that before you voted on a Bill? You must read it is that not reasonable and not only did not get support from Democrats on that. He got very little back for Republicans. Instead nobody wanted to do that. I'm not gonna read that Bill. No. I'd take two days at a team of lawyers among to read the Bill. Yes. Even Republicans thought that the continually do this without reading anything and there's a ton of bad stuff in the Bill. Yeah. I mean, it's time all the wall is only allowed to be built in the Rio Grande valley. That's the only place. Now. There's also something else in this Bill that it must have local government support. Well, if you look at the grand valley, they are not they don't voters this. Six to one for Hillary Clinton. Okay. There isn't a border town in Texas at least that didn't vote for Hillary Clinton. So they've now put in the Bill, and it appears to be permanent that if you want to build a wall this one only authorizes it in the Rio Grande valley and the Rio Grande valley must be they must vote to do it. And if they don't vote to do it, then it doesn't happen. And if you want to build a wall at any other time, the local government has the right? So in other words, there they're all of a sudden really tenth tenth amendment except not even at state level. Sudden they're like, no local people have all the charge on this. So could they could they essentially block the wall being built out of the emergency declaration anyway. I just the wall. Our sure fifty five miles that they proposed in this in this particular spending Bill you mean, they can only block that one. Right. No. I think if it's anyway, I don't know for sure. But if it's anyway. I think it's you can't block it in the Rio Grande valley, but you can block it any other place in the future. That's the way I read it. Actually, I read it. The worst case scenario. I read I read it as the locals can stop it anywhere you want but go try in the Rio Grande valley. That's how I read it. But it is. It's being said by. By people who read these bills, and our attorneys, they're saying it's intentionally ambiguous. So you don't know if it's just this Bill or if it's forever. You don't know what they do every time right with these bills time and one of the people who like so that he needs to have a signing statement saying that no signing statements. Don't mean anything signing statements. Don't mean anything he needs to veto this Bill. I mean, isn't it isn't as Mr President again same question to both of you guys isn't a new government shutdown much better than this outcome. Oh, yes. Yeah. Except nobody in government. Nobody think don't go there. You don't need to continuing resolution just keep everything the same continuing resolution. We don't need anything. But a continuing resolution. That's what has to happen. This Bill is horrible, absolutely horrible. We are giving what is it ten times this much? We're giving three point one billion dollars in foreign health services, which is more than twice the walls in this Bill. My gosh, did you see what Obama's border chief set about this yesterday? No, he said Trump needs to veto this. Obama's border chief. That you can't he said if you cannot sign this Bill, it's that bad. This Bill is that bad. This Bill is written as if Democrats believe they have Trump over a barrel. They do and they are saying we will they think they won the shutdown thing, which I think they probably did. And so they think they've got all the leverage now, and this is written as if they can not only did they win. But they are it's it's forty seven to three in the fourth quarter. They will have to all you have to call the White House. You must blow out the phones of the White House and say Mr President, please veto and go for a continuing resolution, please veto this Bill. I mean, there's the Bill expands. A does does expand catch and release. It has to it has reduced the number of border beds Ed site ten thousand now. Because you I mean, look a lot of people will say, well, we want the wall, and we're gonna do the national emergency, which you know, I'm not a fan of. But even if you like the national emergency he could do that with or without this Bill. Sure, he can do that. If he doesn't sign this Bill now he's gonna have he would have to get sixty seven senators to step up to overturn that national emergency. And the idea that happening. I mean, you're going to get twenty Republicans against I I don't know where I don't think they're gonna get these got to go to the supreme court. And I hope they must surpreme court turns it over only because of this. Did you see Nancy Pelosi and all of the other Democrats Elizabeth Warren everyone came out yesterday and said, well, if you wanna play a national emergency healthcare is a national emergency guns are a national emergency. They are telling you right now, they're gonna do if you do this fantastic climate change climate Chechen Limor, they'll do it. All. You said it they're telling you right now in advance. If you do this then climate change guns. It's all a national emergency. And they will do it. And since we're proposing trades over and over again, you're you're progressive, you're liberal, right? You want you want to grow the size of government? You want to grow the size of federal power. Would you trade the entire border wall? You give up the entire board. While forget eight percent. Would you trade the entire border wall to get the precedent set that you can now declare a national emergency? Whatever you want over that as a progressive does progressive you. I would I would take that trade in the second the tire border off because you could always override it with another national emergency. The national emergency power is so strong. If used by this they can redirect their Bill, you can say a of dollars, you could redirect over a period of time. You could say it's a national emergency to build the border fence. Oh, it's a national emergency to stop building the border fence because. We're losing workers in our in our country and trade is stopping or there's a humanitarian crisis. It doesn't matter anymore or the walls built, and but we have to let everyone in because of humanitarian crisis that wall does nothing if you're letting everyone in any way, all these things can be overridden this let this happened. This Bill also expands the alternatives to detention program from eighty two thousand to one hundred thousand so instead of housing family units at the border. What it's saying is don't house them there. You can't keep them there. Let them go ease at the interior of the nation. And we're just gonna have them come back to court, and which they never do almost. There's something like two percent of the time. They show up. It prevents it provides forty million dollars for additional staffing. What? Yes. But the ice staffing has to be dedicated overall AT de case management, particularly. The asylum. So what that means is you can hire more ice. But the ice agents are only there to help illegal aliens settle in a non detention center in the country. So you've taken the ice management or the ice mission. And you've completely flipped it. Now, you are helping legal aliens coming into the country and find some place to live. Should really call the White House switchboard at two zero two four five six fourteen fourteen and every point courage, President Trump not sign this Mr President, please don't sign this. Please don't sign this gopher a continuing resolution. You can keep the government over open go for a continuing resolution. The Bill also gives over a billion dollars to the Smithsonian. What does this Smithsonian have to do with it? Three point four billion in refugee assistance. Oh, man. Four point four billion in international disaster assistance. That's one hundred million more. It doesn't eliminate any foundations that Trump wanted to get rid of including the Asia foundation, the US Africa development foundation. The inter American Foundation, the US trade and development agency. This thing is just.

Even Republicans thought that the continually do this without reading anything and there's a ton of bad stuff in that Bill. Yeah. I mean, all the wall is only allowed to be built in the Rio Grande valley. That's the only place. Now. There's also something else in this Bill that it must have local government support. Well, if you ask the grand valley, they are not. They don't vote insist six. Two one for Hillary Clinton. Okay. There isn't a border town in Texas at least that didn't vote for Hillary Clinton. So they've now put in the Bill, and it appears to be permanent that if you want to build a wall this one only authorizes it in the Rio Grande valley and the Rio Grande valley must be they must vote to do it. And if they don't vote to do it, then it doesn't happen. And if you want to build a wall at any other time, the local government has the right? So in other words, there they're all of a sudden really tenth tenth amendment except not even at state level. Yeah. All of a sudden, they're like, no, local people have all the charge on this. So could they could they essentially block the wall being built out of the emergency declaration anyway. I just the wall. Sure. Miles that they proposed in this in this particular spending Bill. You mean, they can only block that one. Right. No. I think it's if it's anyway, I don't know for sure. But if it's anyway. I think it's you can't block it in the Rio Grande valley, but you can block it any other place in the future. That's the way I read it. Actually, I read it. The worst case scenario. I irene. The locals can stop it anywhere you want. But go try in the Rio Grande valley. That's how I read it. But it is being said by. By people who read these bills, and our attorneys, they're saying it's intentionally ambiguous. So you don't know if it's just this Bill or if it's forever. You don't know what they do every time right with these bills probably time, and you know, one of the people like that he needs to have a signing statement saying that nila signing statements. Don't mean anything signing statements. Don't mean anything he needs to veto this Bill. I mean, isn't it isn't as Mr President again same question boots to both? You guys isn't a new government shutdown much better than this outcome. Oh, yes. Yes. Except nobody in government. Nobody will think so don't go there. You don't need to continuing resolution just keep everything the same continuing resolution. We don't eat anything. But a continuing resolution. That's what has to happen. This Bill is horrible, absolutely horrible. We are giving what is it ten times as much we're giving three point one billion dollars in foreign health services, which is more than twice the walls in this Bill. My gosh, did you see what Obama's border chief said about this yesterday? No, he said Trump needs to veto this bomb is border chief. Wow. That you can't he said if you cannot sign this Bill, it's that bad. This Bill is that this Bill is written as if Democrats believe they have Trump over a barrel. They do and they are saying we will they think they won the shutdown thing, which I think they probably did. And so they think they've got all the leverage now, and this is written as if they not only did they win. But they are it's it's forty seven to three in the fourth quarter. And they will have to all you have to call the White House. You must blow out the phones of the White House and say Mr President, please veto and go for a continuing resolution, please veto this Bill. There's the Bill expands. A does does expand catch and release because to it has to it has reduced the number of border beds, Ed site ten thousand. Because you I mean, look, it's a lot of people will say, well, we want the wall, and we're gonna do the national emergency, which you know, I'm not a fan of. But even if you like the national emergency he could do that with or without this Bill. Sure, he can do that. If he doesn't sign this Bill now he's gonna have he would have to get sixty seven senators to step up to overturn that national emergency. And the idea that happening. I mean, you're going to get twenty Republicans to stand up against I I don't know. I don't think they're going to get to the supreme court. And I hope Precourt turns it over only because of this. Did you see Nancy Pelosi and all of the other Democrats Elizabeth Warren everyone came out yesterday and said, well, if you wanna play national emergency healthcare is a national emergency guns are a national emergency. They are telling you right now, they're gonna do if you do this fantastic climate change climate Chechen. They'll do. It all they said it they're telling you right now in advance. If you do this then climate change guns. It's all a national emergency. And they will do it. And since we're proposing trades over and over again, you're you're progressive era liberal, right? You want you want to grow the size of government? You want to grow the size of federal power. Would you trade the entire border wall? You give up the entire board. While forget eight percent. Would you trade the entire border wall to get the precedent set that you can now declare a national emergency? Whatever you want over that as a progressive does aggressive. You will. I would I would take that trading. The second I did tire border off because you could always override it with another national emergency. The national emergency power is so strong. If used by this they can redirect their Bill. You can save a trillion dollars, you could redirect over a period of time. You could say it's a national emergency to build the border fence. Oh, it's a national emergency to stop building the border fence. Because we're losing workers in our in our country and trade is stopping or there's a humanitarian crisis. It doesn't matter anymore or the walls built, and but we have to let everyone in because of humanitarian crisis that wall does nothing if you're letting everyone in any way, all these things can be overridden this letter this happened. This Bill also expands the alternatives to detention program from eighty two thousand to one hundred thousand so instead of housing family units at the border. What it's saying is don't house them there. You can't keep them there. Let them go. He's at the interior of the nation. And we're just gonna have them come back to court, and which they never do almost. There's something like two percent of the time. They show up. It prevents it provides forty million dollars for additional ice staffing. What? Yes. But the ice staffing has to be dedicated overall AT de case management. Particularly the asylum-seekers. So what that means is you can hire more ice. But the ice agents are only there to help illegal aliens settle in a non detention center in the country. So you've taken the ice management or the ice mission. And you've completely flipped it. Now, you are helping a legal aliens coming into the country and find some place to live. She really call the White House switchboard at two two four five six fourteen fourteen and every point courage, President Trump not sign this Mr President, please don't sign this. Please don't sign this gopher a continuing resolution you can keep the government over open go for a continuing resolution. The Bill also gives over a billion dollars to the Smithsonian. What does this Smithsonian have to do with it three point four billion in refugee assistance? Oh, man. Four point four billion in international disaster assistance. That's one hundred million more. It doesn't eliminate any foundations that Trump wanted to get rid of including the Asia foundation. The US Africa development foundation, the InterAmerican foundation, the US trade and development agency. This thing is just.

"You. You said. Your question. You said it. Is an in morality. It's not who we are as a nation. And this is not a wall between Mexico and the United States that the president is creating here. It's a wall between reality and his constituents his supporters. He does not want them to know what he's doing to Medicare, Medicaid and social security in his budget proposal. He just not want them to know what he's doing to clean air and clean water and the rest in his department. Headache? Democrats total capitulation on the border says this article in the week again, it's marketed south SAP center publication. Democrats agree to hand him over one point three seven five billion to build a fifty five mile long barrier in the Rio Grande valley. Now, if the wall is an immorality the wall is racist. How do you justify it fifty five mile long racist wall? That's an immorality. Also, they agree to give the department of homeland security an additional one point seven billion for border security says this article, including technology at ports of entry more officers, and as an afterthought some humanitarian aid. Now, here's what this article says. And this is what's important handing Trump some wall. My might have been worth it. If the Democrats had gotten something in return legalizing dreamers and others who's temporary protected status. Trump scrapped but Democrats fail to even put this on the table, despite many hints by Republicans that they will consider it. Even worse. Democrats capitulated to the administration's demand for maintaining it's inflated detention bed capacity to house unauthorized immigrants, the Lynch pin of its draconian enforcement actions. So they are not happy. And talked about how negotiations broke down because the Democrats were insisting on a cap on the tension beds, Republican says if anything we're going to increase them, and it says that by rating FEMA. And other agencies within the department of homeland security. Argue a violation of this law and that law and this law, they're going to spend more and more money for this border wall. And the article ends this way, quote, Democrats are trying to sell this as a reasonable compromise by claiming that this funding level represents a seventeen percent cut in detention over current levels. But Trump was maintaining those levels using unauthorized funds. In other words, far from calling Trump for your legally exceeding congressional limits. According to this piece in the week Democrats are using Trump's detention levels as their official baseline, so all in all Trump got more money for a border barrier enhanced border security, and increased attention capacity. What are the Democrats get? Absolutely nothing. Zilch. Nada end of quote now, again, I'm not saying that Republicans feel like this. You heard Ann Coulter. She's very upset. And I'm not quite sure what Sean Hannity's position on this isn't anymore. But as far as I'm concerned, given the competition of congress, given the fact that they picked up. Forty seats. This is about the best you're going to do and for Trump to take around some money and move it around you tell me you can't find side billion dollars. Let alone. You can find twenty five billion let alone five billion dollars to do what he wants to do it. It seems to me they ought to be able to do that. Here is Floyd from Minneapolis. Minnesota Floyd in the Larry elder show. Thank you so much for calling. Hi, larry. Hey floyd. I got a couple of issues. I think I think what Trump should do after he'd take Bill fifty nine miles wall with the new money should go back in jail and tell them close in the liberals in California, if you don't want the wall, that's fine. Then over Jake some of the rest of the money and taken down on the southern border of gal mortgage. Jackson. Go in and take the wall down around. Linda, Pelosi's house and tell her, you know, what you didn't want the wall. So we're going to remove all the borders going into California completely. And we're gonna use them where they want them where after all the wall is Amer and immorality, even racist. So I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi would want the walls removed, obviously, she doesn't Floyd. Thank you very much for the call and you called her Linda, Linda Pelosi. Her name is Nancy Pelosi. Isn't it? Linda Pelosi came in my probably know somebody named mainland with somebody last name. Anyway floyd. Thank you very much for that. I appreciate triple eight nine seven one S A G E Howard Schultz, the man who may run as a fierce, centrist or a centrist independent is that what you said centrist, independent says seventy percent tax on billionaires would be punitive. Now, the IRS is back up and running. I hope you're not still ignoring all those letters notices they've been sending folks the IRS is not allowed to threaten you. If they say, they're gonna do something they are going to do it. The only real question is what are you going to do? He thought it was difficult. Getting somebody on the phone at the IRS before imagine them dealing with millions of people calling all at once. What are you gonna do when they clean out your Bank account? What are you gonna do when they take a chunk out of your paycheck?.

"Hundred eighty eight ten on Twitter, some of your tweets at Ethan Bearman. So we're in day twenty of the partial government shutdown the president now is I believe on in route if not already on the ground in Texas to visit the border and joining me on the phone to tell us what the heck is going on in Texas right now at least the president's border. Visit Westwood One correspondent Clayton Neville Clayton. Thanks for coming on the show today. And what is what's going on with those this border? Visit today. Yeah. Thanks. The president is not here. Yes. He should be here within the next hour or so expected to touchdown just before one o'clock central time here as we approach twelve thirty down on the order. There are hundreds and hundreds if not thousands of the crowd continues to gather lined up outside of the airport where I am now, and it's free. Splitting the middle in supportive role in supporting President Trump. And then plenty on the other side opposing order all as well. They have come out in force today as the president arrives here in mcallen, Texas area to speak with those on the front lines with border patrol. He'll be briefed down at the Rio Grande and meet with officials here at the mcallen border station as well it'll be about a three and a half hour trip. So do we know? Okay. So hang I said, I want to make sure that Andrew stand what the purpose is Clayton Neville, Westwood One. Correspondent joining me on the phone right now. He wants to meet with border patrol agents that that's what the purpose of misleading photo ops up. I mean, that's normal. Presidential stuff is the photo op and all that. But, but it's the meet with border patrol people to get their perspective on what a wall would look like in the Rio Grande valley or or what? Well, according to the White House the purpose of this trip is to beat with those on the front lines. And that's as much as we've gotten as far as I know. That's brought a lot of question here with the timeliness of this trip two days after he made that presidential address about the border wall. And right in the midst of the government shutdown with the border wall. The main focus there the question is what is the exact purpose of his will. We learn more certainly possible as the afternoon moves along here. There's a lot of people thinking. This could be one of the final steps that the president takes before declaring that the national urgency wanting to get a glimpse at it first hand. So you know, will that follow this visit to mcallen, certainly before the president left the White House today, he indicated that that was the possibility. So yeah, I'm like you. It'll be interesting to find out what the exact purpose is. But at this point, we'll say it's to get a glimpse of the front lines at to speak with people here who are in the situation every day and whoever better grasp as to what's going on. Now, it's really important. I think Clayton to paint a picture. You know, I used to live in the Metroplex have spent some time in Texas and have been to the border in Texas among other states. Under the two thousand six act that was passed by congress a lot of those urban interface areas do have barriers already in maybe not mcallen specifically. But definitely Brownsville. Definitely laredo. You know, all along at up, Al Paso, those types of places where you are down in mcallen. I don't know if you're close enough to the border, but are there urban interface physical barriers already in place there? There is some fencing in parts of the Rio Grande just outside of McGowan Lennon's but gallon is just to the west of Brownsville so little bit west of the tip of Texas, if you can picture that in your mind. It right. There's not a whole lot of fencing in the rural areas now directly south of mccowan and in areas like mission rate, no side of the big areas. You know, about a hundred fifty thousand people in Harlingen some other areas have sixty seventy thousand as well. So pretty populated area. There's three or four big international bridges for boarder crossings. So this particular area is pretty secure. But it's when you go further out past mission and some of those rural areas that is one of the main spots in the state of Texas for legal border crossings, and there really is not much there when you get into the rural areas as far as fencing as of right now the country is relying on order agents. And that could be part of the reason why that is one of the most popular areas for illegal crossings right now in Texas. Right. Exactly. And and and I think it is important to paint that picture though, because the Rio Grande is a river, and especially. Off in places like big band. You have giant cliffs, it's it's it's a mountainous region, and the actual commerce does travel across these main bridges and main crossing points at our secure, and it's these rural areas that are really the the question Mark that representatives like will heard from Texas who's been giving a lot of interviews in his one of the few Republicans who voted to reopen. The government have been talking about where he represents one of those rural districts. Yeah. That's right. You know in in these rural districts are so much different than some of the bigger urban areas down here on the order. I mean, the rural areas are where the majority of this happens, and that's where it's so hard to control the illegal border crossings. I don't think there's many people down here that I've spoken with that deny the fact that there needs to be some type of protection and that the United States that need this to protect itself from illegal border crossings. There's certainly a lot of debate over how to do that. And I think that's the key here, right? In the middle of of the invective that comes out of DC is they're both sides have talked about border security both sides of voted for border security. The question becomes what does that look like in rural areas? And ultimately, that's what the debate is about. I I'm very curious to see how this is going to go today. And I'm sure you'll be reporting on and we'll get your updates later in reports, but Clayton Neville, Westwood One. Correspondent it is always great check in with you. And thanks for calling in from the border in Texas. All right. Appreciate it. Thanks so much Clayton. And ultimately, that's the key point. Here is rural Texas the urban interface areas already have fences and walls and whatnot where it is appropriate. That was done ten twelve years ago. Now, all of that has not even been finished yet from the two thousand six act. It's the rural areas and people like Representative will heard I heard an interview with him earlier today. Said in the rural areas, it's nonsensical. According to border agents to build large physical barriers, but they need technology. This is a Republican by the way, who represents the largest stretch over two hundred miles of border area in Texas is the Representative and he's Republican who represents the largest stretch in congress, and he's saying reopened the government. It's not all a wall. It's not even all offense use technology get border agents. And by the way, Democrats will get behind that and have been behind that. It's when you start saying, I need a wall and immigrants are horrible. We're crossing the Mark. Now, you're demonizing the other and you make it a moral question when you do that. Boy. All right. So if you'd like to talk about that more, I would love it. Otherwise, I wanna I wanna tell you well, oracle arena too. Because I do not understand. Why people are so upset not arena. It's oracle park. Excuse me. We're not talking about Oko, we're oracle park now instead of AT and T park people are flipping a lid because the name change for money of a ballpark. And I'm curious if you're upset about it and why four one five eight hundred eighty eight.

"Davis. And here's what's happening. President Trump on route to the southern border this hour in hopes of making a new case I border wall before he left Washington on Air Force One. He reiterated his point that a border wall is necessary to keep the country safe. He says he believes he does have the absolute right to declare a national emergency. When it comes to funding his wall. And if a deal doesn't end up working out with Democrats, he says he's almost definite that he'll do it. Mr. Trump met with congressional leaders yesterday. It was a pretty quick meeting. Democrats say the president had a temper tantrum he says, they blew it out of proportion. I didn't I didn't raise void that was a lie over in Washington today. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell pointing fingers at Democrats saying they approved similar structures like the border while under President Obama. But in return, minority leader Chuck Schumer accused the president of holding federal workers hostage is ridiculous. And it's cruel and it needs to end.

Illegal aliens, why not withhold federal funding in the form of aid through those countries in the mount equal to the cost of building the wall. Now, they don't get that much compared to what the cost of the wall is when you're talking about the Central American countries. Tens of millions hundreds of millions. They don't get billions. But there's a lot. There are a lot of things we can do. But right now congress wants to throw up its hands and says, oh, we'll maybe we'll do it after the midterms. Why why do it after the midterms? Do it now while you can. Let's go to Steven Indiana before we get to chief Padilla, Steve. An honor to speak with you again. This morning about that lovely woman who has taken away. Legal supposedly alien. I think we need to change the term around because these people are unlawful. Intruders. Well, there are people shouldn't be in the country. They they can't be here in the first place to commit the crimes. Can't let the people through the door to commit the crimes. A lot of people commit crimes there deported. Then they come back. This happens back and forth back and forth. Back and forth. Joining us now for for some factual perspective. I'm delighted he's with us manual padeas, the border patrol chief of the all important Rio Grande valley sector where we discussed one hundred and thirty illegals and just over twenty four hours were nabbed chief Padilla, it's good to talk to you. I need to get the just the square facts from you on the number of crossings, and whether or not there has been an uptick since we seem to have gone back to catch and release after the family separation debacle the judge ruling now or catching, and we're essentially releasing is there been uptick. Laura. Thank you very much for having me here in regards to the uptick. So when you look at the numbers here in the Rio Grande valley sector, we account for forty one percent, one sector one out of nine sectors. We account for forty one percent of all the apprehensions made along the southwest border. We also account for forty four percent of all the marijuana that it seized between the ports of entry along the southwest border. So we are the busy is by far the busiest sector along the southwest border. I have to date about one hundred and fifty thousand six hundred apprehensions date. Percent of those apprehensions our family units and unaccompanied children. The other fifty percent are people that are trying to evade us MS thirteen gang members criminal aliens. And also people looking for a better life, and it's very very important to understand that because there's two solutions to those two populations for the people that are trying to evade us to include narcotics smugglers, human, smugglers, criminal aliens, we need the wall, we need technology, and we need the right number of personnel. That is for half of my traffic the other half, which is a family unit and the unaccompanied children. We need immigration reform. We need to close the immigration loopholes that currently exist when we talk about catch and release. We are talking about family units. And unaccompanied children Laura this year and the year is not over yet. But we have we have set records when it comes to numbers of family units that have been apprehended by the US border patrol ever. Wow. Matt is that is beyond stunning. The issue of the wall and infuriating issue of the wall keeps coming up the president campaigned on it. Obviously doesn't like Mexico's gonna pay for it. But people want it paid for and Esa veto of Univision came on TV with me last night chief, and we talked about whether the wall was necessary or not, and this is how it went instead of being part of a broader strategy border enforcement has become the only strategy. Why don't we invest more in fighting the root causes of immigration? Why wait until people at our door and try to build the wall something that has to do with structural issues. Like, Barbara deep violence things that we're seeing a lot of violence. I'm going to stop those people. Well, we're. Your reaction. Yes. So almost speaking to the two frozen. I'm talking about Lauren my opinion, anybody that knows anything about the border. I've been doing this for a little while thirty two years we have seen. We have seen areas of the border being transformed. If you look at San Diego of the early nineties, it was extremely chaotic it was just huge groups of people coming across the border. We actually had signs back then that that had a father figure a mother figure pulling a child because so many people were getting killed as a cross the highways, you deployed, or we deployed personnel technology infrastructure. Now, you have a lot of prosperity a lot of businesses right along the border where before he was no-man's-land. So that was San Diego. I'll take you to a pass. In nineteen Ninety-three. We started operation hold the line on nine hundred ninety three you could not have a pickup truck in El Paso. I'll tell you from personal experience. I had in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight Ford stolen twice a third time. I did not recover it. I just gave up on it. So we deployed personnel technology infrastructure and look at El Paso now constantly talking about one of the safest cities in the country. So to say that the wall is not necessary to transform the border. I do not believe anybody can tell you that with a straight face. Well, it's it's now racist to say a wall is something that will actually take pressure off border patrol agents. It's not everything, but it's willow wall. Yes. Or no. Slow the flow across the border. Yes. Yes. Yes. What the wall will do is stop the chaos along the border again, we have transformed chaotic border areas by the deployment of the wall, principally and complemented with technology and personnel. And what do you think about now almost two years into the Trump administration and a little bits and pieces of the wall being fortified in California. But certainly not where you are correct. That is correct. We have plans we'd have the requirements identify. I can tell you from an operator's perspective display specifically south Texas corridor is not going to see great gays similar to the ones we've seen elsewhere without the deployment of the wall. And chief the Laredo sector also seeing a massive uptick in the number of people crossing MS thirteen eighteenth street gang members, tell us about the type of individual beyond the the family units. Who know they're just going to be released into society the makeup of those family units. You don't know whose whose family, and whose just someone they picked up along the way. I'm going to give you a snapshot of the last twenty four hours on September eleventh. Nearly seven hundred illegal aliens arrested in my sector, seven hundred not one hundred and thirty seven hundred. We spoiled nine human smuggling cases, we hit to stash houses, the stash houses are very delapidated homes or trailers where people are kept against their will inside a trailer. And usually we get a lot of claims about physical assaults, extortion and sexual assaults against women. And then we had a convicted sex offender arrested and one eighteenth street gang member arrested. This is I'm going to say is an average day. Some days are way busier than that. So this is the last twenty four hours as far as gang members. We are seeing actually about a two hundred percent increase in MS thirteen gang members. I will call your attention to September third. You had nine MS thirteen gang members were arrested in Houston for murdering five people. And when I see that the only thing that I think of Laura is that these gang members that are cutting Houston committing those atrocities came right to the southwest border and likely through my area of operation. That's absolutely staggering. Absolutely staggering. This is Hannah dryer Panadura Hannah dryer from propublica left wing organization on NPR about MS thirteen thirteen really doesn't have a role in the international drug trade and one of the reasons for that experts say is because the gang engages in so which they're almost too chaotic for the major cartels to work with. So the major cartels are purposely voiding MS thirteen by and large because this is a gang that's built around violence for violence sake. And that is very bad for business. If you're trying to be international drug trade. Reaction about the the MS thirteen description. This is a propublica person. Yes, I will tell you. There is a convergence of the threat, and I tell you very categorically that the cartels MS thirteen criminal organizations have gotten involved in any listed activity that makes them money, and and there's a lot of money in and Laura that makes them money or gives them power. In fact, when I talk about the numbers, if you look at the one hundred and fifty thousand people more or less this year for me, you can put an average about five thousand to six thousand per person. And that is the money that goes to the cartels and to any criminal organization to include MS thirteen abroad or here. Yeah. Well, again, people who have no experience at the border have not seen the damage. This has done who live in there. Bubble communities where their lives are simply not affected this at all their kids. Don't go to public schools. They're they're not living in communities that have seen the scourge of illegal immigrant crime. It's it's easy for them to say, oh, this is all fine. We can just get the bad guys. We just need to focus on the bad guys. That's the other thing. They always say chief focus on the bad guys. Leave these other people just looking for a better way of life alone, leave them alone. How do you respond to that? I I'll tell you from an operator's perspective, I focus on the activity because when we're looking at two hundred percent plus increase in MS thirteen we're looking at, you know, accounting for forty four percent of all the marijuana that is ceased and actually in this corridor about forty percent of all the cocaine seized between the ports of entry along the border. All these things the way, I see it. It's a gateway to the interior of the United States anything that is done by MS thirteen or sex offenders or criminal aliens and the interior United States. Unfortunately, right now, I find myself without the wall without the technology and personnel to be able to close the gateway. To this crime border chief manual Padilla, frio grand valley valley and in Texas. We really appreciate your service to this country. And thank you for giving us the facts, we need to make our own conclusions about what the country needs to do. We're going to close out this hour. Remember, the ingrahamangle tonight? We have a fantastic show on tap all these types of issues, including the new party of chaos. Well, hit that. And that's the Democrats who are sowing chaos. Amidst all this fantastic economic news.

"Building the wall was one of President Trump's biggest campaign promises. So what's the status and what does the administration doing to reunite families separated at the border immigration reporter, Anna jeered Elliot's here now, and let's talk about the current migration crisis. This isn't new. This doesn't new. This is the third migration crisis in four years and customs and border protection department of homeland security. They're very aware of it and the difference this time is they're not treating it as a border problem, treating it as a regional problem. So they're working with the root issue, which is why people are fleeing Central America to get to the US. So besides the humanitarian crisis, we're also looking at a big drug issue. I'm talking about that a little bit. We are so last year in fiscal year twenty seventeen. We saw more than two million pounds throw eggs seized at the border. That's just what was sees plenty more, you know, surely got in. The issue with that is you had a million pounds of marijuana coming in marijuana for a lot less than say heroin or fennel. You had just a few thousand pounds of each coming in. So the border patrol and customs and border protection, they secure air sea and between the ports of entry. They're finding now that cartels or more interested in getting those higher priced smaller items across the border then say, you know, millions of pounds of marijuana recently took a trip down to the Rio Grande valley in south Texas told me about that trip and what's the status of that were ball? We've been hearing so much. We got to see firsthand at the Rio Grande valley border the they're putting in dozens more gates, which essentially you're on the river. You've got ports of entry bridges going through, and then there's there's only dirt roads down there for three hours drove around. We didn't get on a pave road the entire time, but these. Roads take you down to the riverside. So if someone is able to, you know, jump in the river swim across to very dangerous river, but they make it across. All they have to do is just walk up the shore on that dirt road and enter the US. So what these gates do is make it impossible for someone to just come up walk through and it only allows border patrol vehicles to go down there. Lastly, you got to meet the head of border patrol the first female to lead that role. What did you learn from her? So I sat down with her Carla provos for an hour and she talked about her history. She's been in border patrol for decades back when it was a very different situation. Technology was in being used, and she talked about as a woman, they have less than twenty percent of women in the force, and it's been like that for twenty years. So she's working to get more women in the agency, but also obviously qualified people and not just changing it more for diversity. But it's an issue the border patrol continues to face. They're losing more people than they're hiring. And so we talked about how she wants to change that. We talked about the public appearance border patrol law enforcement nationally is really a fighting uphill battle trying to overcome the public image. And certainly federal agents like border patrol agents also are part of that, especially with what they do with immigration right now. So talks about her vision for border patrol as its leader and and as a woman, what that means, you know, in the metoo era, what she's experienced during that man. Thanks so much more of Anna's reporting. Check out this week's Washington Examiner magazine join us next time for more sampling..
