Securing Southern Border is President Trump’s Obligation

“Protecting the sovereignty and security of the United States are responsibilities of the commander in chief and if those elements are being compromised by an influx of immigrants at the southern border, President Trump must use the tools at his discretion to remedy the matter,” the Boston Herald editorial board writes.

Border apprehensions are skyrocketing according to Border Patrol officials, with more than 12,000 people in custody right now.

“Companies work painstakingly to earn consumer trust. But when you purchase brand-name goods through online third-party marketplaces like Alibaba, Amazon and eBay, there’s a good chance you’ll end up with a counterfeit,” Director of the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro writes in The Wall Street Journal. Today, “President Trump will sign a presidential memorandum to help protect American consumers, manufacturers and factory workers from counterfeiting.”

“The left-leaning news media has suffered a serious blow to its credibility and to its influence,” Liz Peek writes in Fox News. “A recent CBS poll revealed just how significant the damage is, showing that 54 percent of the country believes Mueller’s investigation was politically motivated”—despite the “steady diet of baloney [from the media] tying the White House to the Kremlin.”

In the Washington Examiner, Erin Dunne writes that President Trump has taken criminal justice reform in the right direction, including by championing the bipartisan First Step Act. “If the first step was getting more people out of prison, the second step is helping those people get jobs — and that’s exactly what President Trump said he plans on doing.”

“The White House is exploring all executive authorities in existing law that will allow an aggressive crackdown on illegal immigration and legal immigration fraud, senior adviser to the president Stephen Miller told The Daily Caller in an exclusive telephone interview,” Saagar Enjeti reports. “Now that this crisis is upon us, it’s the time to take that effort to the next level,” Miller says.

南部国境の確保はトランプ大統領の義務

「米国の主権と安全を守ることは最高司令官の責任であり、これらの要素が南部国境での移民の流入によって危険にさらされている場合、トランプ大統領はその問題を解決するために大統領の裁量で手段を講じなければならない」と ボストンヘラルド社の編集委員会が書いている。

Editorial: Securing southern border is Trump’s obligation

Scheduling glitches led an immigration judge to deny the Trump administration’s request to order four Central American migrants deported because they failed to show for initial hearings Wednesday, March 20, 2019, dealing a setback to a highly touted initiative to make asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their cases wind through U.S. immigration courts.

Protecting the sovereignty and security of the United States are responsibilities of the commander in chief and if those elements are being compromised by an influx of immigrants at the southern border, President Trump must use the tools at his discretion to remedy the matter.

Border Patrol officials have indicated that border apprehensions have skyrocketed and there are more than 12,000 migrants in the custody of federal agencies. Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan, said, “Two weeks ago, I briefed the media and testified in Congress that our immigration system was at the breaking point. That breaking point has arrived this week at our border.”

“CBP is facing an unprecedented humanitarian and border security crisis all along our southwest border and nowhere has that crisis manifested more acutely than here in El Paso,” McAleenan added. In addition to the revelation that agencies were out of beds and migrants were being released due to the overflow, he warned that health problems had become numerous in the facilities.

“We are doing everything we can to simply avoid a tragedy in a CBP facility,” McAleenan said. “But with these numbers, with the types of illnesses we’re seeing at the border, I fear that it’s just a matter of time.”

Put directly, our border is being overrun. There is indeed a crisis.

President Trump has been making his feelings known via Twitter. “The DEMOCRATS have given us the weakest immigration laws anywhere in the World,” he tweeted, “Mexico has the strongest, & they make more than $100 Billion a year on the U.S. Therefore, CONGRESS MUST CHANGE OUR WEAK IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW, & Mexico must stop illegals from entering the U.S. through their country and our Southern Border.”

He had a stern warning for Mexico.

“Mexico for many years made a fortune off of the U.S., far greater than Border Costs. If Mexico doesn’t immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States through[sic] our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week.”

In February, 76,103 migrants were detained, at the border. The highest number in 12 years. A record number of adults arriving with children are crossing illegally, as well, with over 136,000 coming across so far this year.

On Friday, Trump told reporters he was serious about his threat to close the border. His sharpest comments were directed at Mexico. “Mexico’s tough,” he said. “They can stop them, but they chose not to. Now they’re going to stop them. And if they don’t stop them, we’re closing the border. They’ll close it. And we’ll keep it closed for a long time. I’m not playing games.”

The situation is untenable. There is no more room for migrant families and many of them are sleeping in makeshift holding areas. It is the responsibility of Congress to come up with a legislative fix, at once. Last year Democrats groused about “kids in cages” to no end. Now they refuse to lift a finger to help children and families.

Until Congress acts, President Trump should close the border, if necessary. He must do it in the name of humanity, as well as the sovereignty and security of the United States.

“Companies work painstakingly to earn consumer trust. But when you purchase brand-name goods through online third-party marketplaces like Alibaba, Amazon and eBay, there’s a good chance you’ll end up with a counterfeit,” Director of the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro writes in The Wall Street Journal. Today, “President Trump will sign a presidential memorandum to help protect American consumers, manufacturers and factory workers from counterfeiting.”

「企業は消費者の信頼を得るために骨の折れる仕事をしています。

  しかし、Alibaba、Amazon、eBayなどのオンラインの第三者市場を通じてブランド商品を購入すると、偽造品になってしまう可能性があります。」とホワイトハウス貿易・製造政策局の局長Peter NavarroがThe Wall Street Journalに書いています。

本日、「トランプ大統領はアメリカの消費者、製造業者、工場労働者を偽造品から守るための大統領覚書に署名するでしょう。」

「左寄りのニュースメディアは、その信頼性とその影響力に深刻な打撃を受けました」とLiz PeekはFox Newsに書いています。

「最近のCBSの世論調査では、被害の大きさがどれほど重大であるかが明らかになり、国の54%がMuellerの調査を信じているのは政治的動機によるものであることを示している。

ー「ホワイトハウスをクレムリンに結びつける(メディアからの)しょっちゅう同じようなたわごと」にもかかわらず。

In the Washington Examiner, Erin Dunne writes that President Trump has taken criminal justice reform in the right direction, including by championing the bipartisan First Step Act. “If the first step was getting more people out of prison, the second step is helping those people get jobs — and that’s exactly what President Trump said he plans on doing.”

Washington Examinerの中で、Erin Dunneはトランプ大統領が超党派的ファーストステップ法を支持することを含む正しい方向で刑事司法改革を行った、と書いている。

 「最初のステップがより多くの人々を刑務所から解放することであったならば、2番目のステップはそれらの人々が仕事を得るのを助けることです – そしてそれはまさにトランプ大統領が彼がするつもりであると言いました。

“The White House is exploring all executive authorities in existing law that will allow an aggressive crackdown on illegal immigration and legal immigration fraud, senior adviser to the president Stephen Miller told The Daily Caller in an exclusive telephone interview,” Saagar Enjeti reports. “Now that this crisis is upon us, it’s the time to take that effort to the next level,” Miller says.

  「今、この危機は私たちにあります。その努力を次のレベルに進める時が来ました」とミラーは言います。

きちんとした裁判を行うことで、冤罪をなくし、服役囚の刑期を短縮でき、社会的コストの軽減化につながるというこの社説の主張には、まったく同感です。税金を無駄に使われたら、たまったものではありませんから。

日本でも、同じような議論をすべきです。無能な国会議員や役人どもがのうのうと納税者の血税を無駄使いしているのを見ると、うんざりします。自分たちが、収益を産まないコスト・センターであることをしっかりと自覚し、謙虚に行動すべきです。

納税者の税金を無駄にしない高邁な思想をもった若き政治家・役人の登場を心から待望します。そして、そんな人にはこういう社説を読み、日本の司法・刑務所制度の改善を図ってもらいたいと願います。

The Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act or First Step Actreforms the federal prison system of the United States of America, and seeks to reduce recidivism. An initial version of the bill passed the House of Representatives (360-59) on May 22, 2018,[1] a revised bill passed the U.S. Senate (on a bipartisan 87-12 vote) on December 18, 2018.[2] The House approved the bill with Senate revisions on December 20, 2018 (358-36). The act was signed by President Donald Trump on December 21, 2018, before the end of the 115th Congress.[3]The act, among many provisions, retroactively applies the Fair Sentencing Act, allows for employees to store their firearms securely at federal prisons, restricts the use of restraints on pregnant women, expands compassionate release for terminally ill patients, places prisoners closer to family in some cases, authorizes new markets for Federal Prison Industries, mandates de-escalation training for correctional officers and employees, and improves feminine hygiene in prison.

Donald Trump designated April 2019 as First Step Act Month at a 1 April 2019 ceremony.[4]

 

The First Step Act, Congress’s criminal justice reform bill, explained

Congress may pass actual criminal justice reform — and Trump supports it.

President Donald Trump and Congress may be on the verge of passing actual bipartisan legislation that would ever so slightly ease mass incarceration — after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday announced that he will allow a vote on the measure this month.

The bill, known as the First Step Act, would take modest steps to reform the criminal justice system and ease very punitive prison sentences at the federal level. It would affect only the federal system — which, with about 181,000 imprisoned people, holds a small but significant fraction of the US jail and prison population of 2.1 million.

‘First Step’ on Prison Reform Is the Right Step

Having passed a bipartisan criminal-justice bill, Congress should build on momentum for change.

Congress and President Trump deserve credit. With the bipartisan First Step Act, they’ve taken a meaningful, if modest, step toward evidence-based policies on punishing crime. More ambitious steps should follow next year.

 

The new law, signed by Trump on Friday, gives judges more discretion to skirt mandatory minimum sentences. It makes retroactive a previous reform that better aligned sentences for crack cocaine with those for powder cocaine. It expands inmates’ access to rehabilitation programs and slightly increases the credits they can earn to reduce their time in federal prison.
