President Donald J. Trump – A Message From The White House

President Donald J. Trump Calls on Congress to Secure our Borders and Protect the American People

WhiteHouse.gov

THE CRISIS FACING OUR COUNTRY: We are facing a growing national security and humanitarian crisis at our Southern Border.  

  • This crisis is only worsening as 2,000 inadmissible migrants arrive at our border every day and overwhelm our immigration system.
    • We do not have the resources needed to hold them, and legal loopholes and activist court rulings prevent authorities from promptly returning them.
    • Immigration courts are overwhelmed, with a backlog of over 800,000 cases.
  • We must secure our border to protect our communities and make sure no more Americans fall victim to crimes committed by illegal aliens.
    • Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has arrested 266,000 aliens with criminal records in the last two years.
    • This includes aliens charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, nearly 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.
  • Deadly drugs are flowing across our borders, taking far too many American lives.
    • 300 Americans die every week from heroin, 90 percent of which comes across our Southern Border.
  • We are facing a humanitarian crisis as human smugglers exploit our immigration system for profit and drive migrants to make the treacherous journey north to the border.
    • 1 in 3 migrant women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek to the border.
    • 20,000 migrant children were illegally smuggled into the country last month alone.
RESOURCES NEEDED: The Trump Administration has requested additional funds relative to the Homeland Security funding bill that passed the Senate Appropriations Committee.
  • The Administration has requested $5.7 billion for construction of approximately 234 miles of new steel barrier on the Southern Border, a $4.1 billion increase over the Senate bill.
  • To protect our communities, the Administration requested $675 million to deter and detect narcotics, weapons, and other materials crossing our borders.
  • Among the Administration’s requests for more resources are:
    • $211 million to hire 750 additional Border Patrol agents
    • $571 million for 2,000 additional ICE personnel
    • $4.2 billion for 52,000 detention beds, personnel, transportation, and detention alternatives
    • $563 million for 75 additional immigration judges and support staff
TIME TO ACT: President Trump is calling on Congress to fulfill their duty to the American people and finally take action to secure the border.  
  • The President is calling on Congress to stop the political games and come together and address the crisis we are facing.
  • Congress has a responsibility to protect the safety and security of the American people and it needs to meet that responsibility by providing the funding needed to secure the border.

I'm Marilyn, a Christian, a Heartdweller, and a Truther. I started, Trump-in-action blog in January 2017 to essentially, "Wake Up America & The World", to government corruption, lies, treason, and deceit. America, God is behind Trump's, "MAKE AMERICA Great, Again!" speech. He put Trump and Pence in office to clean up the 'Evil Swamp', at its highest levels and take down the Nazi Deep State, the Shadow Government, and the Military Industrial Complex working (underground under Obama & former Presidents, Bush, senior and junior and Clinton) feverishly to usurp Trump's authority. Jesus 'said, "He wants America & the world in a good place when He comes for us in the rapture". He also said, "Under President Trump, we will experience Heaven on earth!"
