Trump’s ‘Godfather’ moment on immigration

In the last several days President Trump and his consigliere Stephen Miller have settled all family business when it comes to dealing with immigration.

The departures of Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen and head of the Secret Service Randolph Alles along with the pulling of Ron Vitiello’s nomination to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement show the extent of displeasure the White House has with the current staff’s protection of the southern border.

Lee Cissna, director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, could be the next one to be axed or resign. The Secret Service falls under Homeland Security agency, which oversees the US’s immigration and national-security apparatus.

Trump has requested that Miller and other senior White House staff take a more active role in instituting a stronger policy to stop the flow of illegal immigrants from streaming into the country.

Obviously there was a disconnect between what Trump was hearing about Homeland Security from his White House aides and what was actually happening at the border, which he toured late last week with Nielsen.

Trump’s preferred choice to lead Homeland Security is Kevin McAleena, who is currently the Customs and Border Protection Commissioner. However, according to federal guidelines, the deputy secretary for the department, Claire Grady, would have to be named acting secretary when Nielsen officially turns in her resignation sometime this week.

All that’s left is for Trump to tell Nielsen is, “It’s business, it’s not personal.”

Dems new slogan: “When they go out, we go low.”

The left’s black lash against all things Trump is ramping up to a fever pitch.

In the last week we have seen Trump administration officials called out on the street and in their off hours with family by business owners and patrons. A few examples are:

  • Stephen Miller, White House senior advisor called a fascist and heckled by patrons of a Mexican restaurant.
  • Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of Homeland Security, booed & heard chants of “shame” while eating at a Mexican restaurant.
  • Sarah Sanders Huckerbee, White House Press Secretary, asked to leave by the owner of The Red Hen restaurant.

You even have mainstream media saying that Miller and Nielsen should not be eating in a Mexican restaurant because of the White House stand on immigration. Are you people serious?

And who better than Maxine Waters (D-CA) speaking at a rally in DC to spur supporters to “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

And of course this new tact by the left has received plenty of air time from MSNBC and CNN. This brings me to think that there is a new phrase for the Democratic Party:

“When they go out, we go low.”

This comes about a year after Republican congressmen were gunned down on a baseball field in Arlington, VA. by a disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporter.

So who will take responsibility when some fanatic taking this hostile rhetoric to the next level attempts to kill a Trump administration employee? Not Maxine Waters nor MSNBC nor CNN. No they will then say nothing about their call to arms nor the pushing a hateful agenda.

No they will just all call for more gun control, even though they are the trigger.
