Our Constitutional Republic operates under the Rule of Law.
Congress makes policy, as per Article I, Section 8: “The Congress shall have Power To…establish [a] uniform Rule of Naturalization”.
The President has the authority and responsibility to execute the laws passed by Congress.
Article II, Section 1: “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.”
Pursuant to his constitutional authority, Article II, Section 2, “He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties,”
Treaties prescribe the processes by borders are established.
Treaties between the US and Great Britain in 1818 and 1846 established our northern border.
A treaty between the US and Mexico established our southern border on February 2, 1848.
President Trump repeatedly points to Congress to make a sound (uniform) immigration policy, but this does not happen. On one hand, Democrats demand sanctuary for the so-called ‘dreamers’ but then refuse to vote for the necessary bills that would protect the ‘dreamers’.
Unlike the 44th president, a Democrat, President Trump does not abuse his constitutional authority using his “pen and telephone”.
In the featured news story, Thomas Homan stated in an interview with Neil Cavuto, “As far as the separating families issue, this is at the doorstep of Congress. I went up on the Hill almost a year ago with the head of CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] and the head of CIS [U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services] asking Congress to fix loopholes, one of them for a settlement agreement we can detain families 20 days to see a judge. They refused to fix those loopholes, so the Attorney General did what he had to do operationally to defend our border because Congress failed to defend it.”
Democrat Senators and House Democrats have acted as obstructionists contrary to their oaths of office “support and defend the Constitution of the United States”.
Remember in November and vote Republican to make America great again.
