Last month over 100,000 illegal aliens crossed the U.S. border. The March figures will exceed that number.

President Trump refuses to stop the invasion by closing the border, which he has the power and responsibility to do. By not doing so, he is committing treason by failing to protect the country and its citizens. He is also playing a dangerous game of politics.

Rather than do his job, the president blames congressional inaction and has declared a national emergency, supposedly to get funding to build a wall. He well knows that by the time the actions attendant upon that declaration get through Congress and the courts, the efficacy of a border wall would be nil even if he were successful.

Congress is clearly not going to act to stop the invasion, which has been made clear by the introduction of the massive amnesty bills. Outlaw judges, often Obama-appointed and virtually untouchable, are defying the rule of law by issuing unconstitutional decrees. They rely on the permanence of the damage that can be done during the time lag between their rulings and those being overturned by the Supreme Court.

President Lincoln famously observed that if the United States were to be destroyed, the impetus would come from within, not from outside forces. It is happening. The southern border is wide open. Unless the American people collectively raise their voices in protest, the United States is doomed.
