WOW! 15 Senators Call Out Rushed Secret Talks with Dems

Fifteen Republicans sent a letter to Senator Barrasso upon hearing of rushed secret negotiations with open border Democrats.

The letter reads:

Dear Senator Barrasso:

We write to request that you call a meeting of the Conference to discuss Senate negotiations on securing the border. Rushed and secret negotiations with Democrats who want an open border and who caused the current crisis will not secure the border. The American public deserves an open and transparent process which cannot occur until the House returns the week of January 8, 2024. Accordingly, we request this Conference be held the week of January 8th, but not before.

It was signed by Senators Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, Rick Scott, JD Vance, Marsha Blackburn, Tommy Tuberville, Josh Hawley, James Risch, Ted Cruz, Mike Braun, Ted Budd, Roger Marshall, Eric Schmitt, Marco Rubio, and Lindsey Graham.

Democrats are demanding more immigration and asylum for everyone here. They label any measures to secure the border as racist. How do you negotiate with them when their end point is to implement no measures to secure the border. Mitch McConnell is probably looking for some minimal accommodations so he can send pallets of cash and weapons to Ukraine.

There are too few fighting this onslaught. It’s unlikely that even this treachery can compel the Uniparty contingent of the two parties to act for America, but hope springs eternal.

Senator Johnson issued the following statement:

On Sunday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) released the following statement on the letter sent today by 15 Senate Republicans to Conference Chair John Barrasso, M.D. (R-Wyo.) requesting a meeting of the Conference the week of January 8, 2024, to discuss the negotiations with President Biden and Senate Democrats regarding border security.

“Earlier today, I joined 14 Republican Senate colleagues in releasing our letter calling for a meeting of the Senate Republican Conference to discuss the negotiations with the White House and Senate Democrats regarding securing our border.

“The crisis at the southwest border is unlike anything we’ve experienced in American history. The massive flood of illegal migration is an order of magnitude larger than the ‘humanitarian crisis’ President Obama sparked when he abused ‘prosecutorial discretion’ and granted Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants in 2012. In 2019, Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, stated that 1,000 apprehensions per day ‘overwhelm[ed] the system.’ We recently experienced over 12,000 ‘encounters’ in a single day, and it has become common for encounters to exceed 10,000 per day.

“Of the more than 6 million migrants who have entered and stayed since President Biden took office and opened the border, approximately 1.7 million have been what CBP calls ‘known gotaways.’ That’s a misnomer, because we have no idea who these people are or where they went—we just detected them illegally crossing our porous border. With FBI Director Wray confirming that terror threats to our nation are at an all-time high, particularly from Foreign Terrorist Organizations, Biden’s open border represents a clear and present danger to America.

“Unfortunately, President Biden and his Democrat allies in Congress WANT an open border. Biden came into office with the border largely secured, and then immediately reversed all the policies that had successfully stemmed the flow of illegal migrants. The fact that President Biden and congressional Democrats ARE the root cause of the current crisis is a major problem in conducting good-faith negotiations with them.

“Because President Biden has not faithfully executed existing law, lied repeatedly to the public, ignored and violated Supreme Court rulings, and failed to engage in meaningful negotiations on securing the border until only recently, it is impossible for Republicans to trust him to comply with whatever he agrees to. That’s a real challenge for Republican negotiators.

“I appreciate Senator Lankford’s knowledge and tenacity in negotiating the types of policies and legislative language that would provide a president who actually wants to secure the border with the authorities to do so. The essential ingredient will be how to enforce any agreement reached. I have suggested making Ukraine funding contingent on benchmarks being met on a monthly basis. I am open to other foolproof enforcement ideas.

“Conducting rushed and secret backroom negotiations is not the way to address the unprecedented border crisis. That’s the kind of business as usual process that Washington leadership has relied upon to mortgage our children’s future and weaken our country. Whatever negotiators produce will need to be fully vetted, discussed, and understood—by members and the general public. That will take weeks—not hours or days. I look forward to our conference meeting the week of January 8th, where we can begin that vetting and discussion.”

Only question is where are the other 34 Republicans? That’s more than enough to sell us out. Will be forced to depend on house leadership to halt anything traitorous.

Endless debates. Worthless unproductive niceties and courtesy against traitorous influences and people whom would otherwise be immediately arrested for subversion and violations of oaths of offices.

When do the deportations start?

Just WHY are there any secret discussions about the bleeding wound at our southern border? By rights, every member of congress should be on that border repelling the invasion.

There are possibly 20 million illegal invaders having crossed our borders in the past few years. The truth is nobody knows.

What they will refuse to talk about is the coordinated NGO companies (non governmental organizations) like the Red Cross and a myriad of other scheming enterprises and their corrupt managers, whom are making a literal fortune facilitating this migration in areas like The Darrian Gap. We could simply cut off their funding and arrest the company heads for racketeering and embezzlement, but that’s simply too easy and too effective for the bozos in washington dc.

Then we could move on to how much money is being skimmed as ‘processing fees’ by the banksters whom also play a hand in this migration debacle. As they’re likely claiming a 15% surcharge on every single credit card and/or pile of cash that is actively issued to the migrants to facilitate their journey and settlement in the US or beyond. The reported figures are all over the board but we know for a fact they’re handing out a minimum of $3k and cellular phones with pre programmed apps and encrypted messaging systems to help the migrants know where to go, and when to cross. Some of the figures are much higher at $90k per family for just the first year.

To those selling out our country with open border policies the reasoning is simple. Profit. Take those millions of migrants multiplied by the amounts of the subsidies granted, and then keep 15% of all the money, plus an additional several million if not billions of dollars, for the NGO operational and management fees. Unchecked migration is a money making scheme, they’re all getting rich, which is why they are slow walking the issue and not actually doing anything effective. We do not have comptent leadership in this country. They are almost all of them in clear violation of their oaths of offices, presenting clear and present dangers to this country and our national security.

Additionally, there is an ongoing financial incentive to constantly increase the amount of subsidies provided, grow the scope and size of the NGO companies, and increase the migrant count. Because every one of them that steps over the border is a dollar sign. Cha Ching! More people, more profit. Their mission is already accomplished, that’s what most people whom are captivated by propaganda mainstream news fail to recognize. Only until we arrest these people whom facilitated this, and take all their assets and money away, only then will institutional corrections which bring lasting relief actually be possible. The ‘stay in mexico’ policies, although they read well and worked partially, were nowhere near enough in terms of solid lasting solutions. This is embezzlement and racketeering on a massive massive scale. A coordinated conspiracy which has been in the making for decades.

Which is why stories like this although well meaning, are so woefully short of effective journalism. We The People will not accept this slow walking and specific framing of the issue as something we should be patient regarding. It’s time for massive deportations, and time to send the military down to the Darrien Gap to arrest every single NGO manager and worker, then sort things out from there. We could stop this tomorrow, if there was an honest leader within any number of governmental enforcement agencies whom would take these sorts of actions. Apparently they are all corrupt, which is why nothing is being done. So don’t believe your lying eyes when they stand on those podiums and claim they want solutions. The solutions and legal remedies are already in place, the infrastructure, the staff, the funding, the manpower, readily available. They choose not to do anything. We should have a military force at the border right now sending a clear message, not one single more individual is getting across, while we simultaneously engage in mass deportation, while also work on the administrative side to strip all the unearned raked fees from these NGO’s and everyone they worked with.

Here we go again with yet another example of why we should prohibit congress, senate, and judges from having any investments in any company they may even remotely have a hand in ‘regulating’. We the Citizens, stand against Citizens United. They’ll respond by abusing Smith Mundt even more, as we continue to be saturated with state media propaganda to frame the narrative in a way which suits their interests first and foremost with utter and complete disregard for the average American citizen, absolutely guaranteed.

Your pal; Apache Helicopter.

This was and has been by design for years and years. This is just the death throes of willfully ignoring exiting laws and overwhelming the system. There is no such thing as cheap labor. If it’s not payed properly, it subsidized in some fashion. Housing, food stamps , medical insurance. Small farmers get the blame. Small farmers are a thing of the past. Most farming today is corporate farming. What ever you do, don’t turn a blind eye on the Chamber of Commerce. Thier the biggest employers of illegals and or Visa overstays.

We don’t need this explained to us again and again and again, we need you to do something about it. Go to work for a change, stop taking endless time off. The whole world knows you work only 15 days out of a month. It is time to gather up your long lost courage.
