Graves: Build the wall or Nancy Pelosi and her friends will bring in more illegals

(From Sixth District Congressman Sam Graves)

Earlier this week, a caravan of Central American immigrants tried to storm the United States border after making their way across Mexico. The point all along was to demand asylum from the United States or simply try to cross the border illegally. They know our laws well enough to exploit the loopholes to gain entry.

President Trump responded to caravan members rushing one of the busiest border crossings by threatening to close the border permanently. In fact, one of our border crossings was closed for a while after our Border Patrol Agents were reportedly hit by rocks thrown by caravan members. Sometimes drastic times call for drastic measures.

As long as we don’t have a wall on the border and our immigration laws aren’t fixed, immigrants will continue to try to find ways to get across the border illegally and stay here. We are encouraging folks to break the law. It’s not sustainable.



Certainly, these Central American countries have problems and I understand that our country offers a better life. However, that isn’t what this is about. If we are to maintain the sovereignty of our nation, we cannot just allow countless folks from other countries to enter our country without going through the legal process that we have in place.

Because of the catch and release loopholes we currently have in place, more than 94,000 Central Americans were apprehended and released into the country last year. Many of them remain in the country today! This is de facto amnesty and it only makes our illegal immigration problem that much worse.

Allowing these catch and release loopholes to remain in place is just another step towards open borders. It should come as no surprise that Nancy Pelosi and her friends are just itching to make these ridiculous loopholes even more generous when she gets power in January. This simply cannot happen and I will join my colleagues in blocking any attempt to loosen our immigration laws. Our immigration laws must strengthen the legal immigration process, not aid lawbreakers.

In the meantime, I’ve got a simple solution. You may have heard of it. It’s known as “the WALL.”

We need to build it right now. No more games, no more dragging our feet - let’s get it built. And while we’re building it, we need to fix the loopholes that force us to spend resources on catching illegals just so we can turn them loose, instead of sending them back to their country.

In North Missouri, illegal still means illegal and I will continue fighting to make sure our broken immigration laws are fixed.

Harvey, I'm still waiting for how your silly wall will stop anyone from coming under the wall or by boat as they already are.

Heck, most are coming in from Canada and just staying here on expired Visas.

Harvey just likes to believe in the Shock and Awe of scaring the public.

All those who are denying that there is a problem with criminal infiltration, we should let them come and live with you and you can care for their needs and accept responsibility for them.
I work hard everyday just to support myself and help my own family.
I don't want to be burdened with any extra expenses. I also don't wish for myself or my family to be murdered by these criminals.

Better check under your bed every night before you go to sleep. I understand that is where all those Muslim terrorists like to hide during the day and then come out at night to kill you.

8:55, very simple on the tunnels; just like coon hunting, fill it full of tear gas, he’ll turn around,

BTW, the Mayor of Tiajuana is going after the organizers of the caravans—Trump enemies right here in the US. It was an election stunt that went bad.
BTW, the US life expectancy has gone down a year due to opioids coming in from Mexico.
Tom Streyer and Warren Buffet better have their money tracks covered.

My biggest concern regarding public safety isn’t legal or illegal immigrants. Just browse through the things Randy has posted on this blog for example. (Child molestors, child porn, felons committing more felonies, child and adult homicide)

Read the local newspapers or listen to local news. There’s plenty of crime right here in the four states. The vast majority are committed by white natural born citizens. I read something mentioning opioids from Mexico. What about all the meth around here? In the national news there’s always crime, crime and more crime.

It’s ridiculous a bunch of old goats argue and try to out insult each other over that stupid wall as if those Mexicans are going to bring crime to our perfect corner of Paradise. It’s already here, brought to you by white people. They’re the reason I lock my doors at night. Fools.

"Opioids coming in from Mexico" So that's where the doctor gets them!

Just so you know, the opioid epidemic has nothing to do with Mexico. Sure some is coming in, but not near as much as is being stolen from medicine cabinets of clueless old folk like yourself.

The opioids that good old Harvey mentions, as usual not knowing what he is talking about, comes from our good old health industry and crooked doctors making millions off of peoples misery. Can we start studying a little bit about what causes these problems Harvey? It is good old white republicans that are shooting up our schools and malls and good old republican drug companies making and encouraging the sale of drugs to the poor. Just really sad that anyone actually voted for him in any election except dog catcher.

Harvey Hutchinson said...

35% of opioids come from prescription 65% comes from street via Mexico ( including those originating from China.

You anonymous imbeciles need to check your facts

BTW, MO is the only state without a prescription monitoring program, make BG Dictor shoppers and out of state abuse a priblyhete

Harvy, a quick Google search proves those numbers are a lie. I see you're just making things up like your hero Trump.
