LIKE A BOSS: Dan Crenshaw totally SCHOOLS Democrats on border security and illegal immigration [VIDEO]

This is an impressive showing by Rep. Dan Crenshaw from Texas today from the House Homeland Security Committee with Kirstjen Nielsen.

In his 5 minutes of questioning Nielsen, Crenshaw absolutely schools Democrats on the need for a wall, destroying their phony arguments on the wall, drugs, and illegal immigration.

Watch:



I love how he starts by asking Democrats why they aren’t talking about people being trafficked into the US, like a girl from Mexico he met yesterday who was trafficked into New York City and subsequently raped 30 times a day for five years.

He also explained why the Democrat argument of just having ‘technology’ at the border, instead of a wall, is ridiculous. He points out that while agents will be able to see people coming, they’ll still have to chase them around without a wall to prevent illegal entry.

And that’s just some of what he discusses in this five minute video.

Be sure and watch it for more…

THIS is and SHOULD be the Republican Party as soon as those like Rep. Crenshaw remove the RINO’S and Elitists OUT and put them out to pasture to count their millions made on the taxpayers backs by getting relected time after time!!!!! mad

The hypocrisy being displayed by the marxist democrats over building the wall is palpable. In 2013 the democrats were calling for the building of 340 miles of wall. Trump makes building the wall a major campaign issue during the run up to the 2016 election and from the day he first declared that he will build the wall the democrats have engaged in an all out anti wall campaign. Their reason has nothing to do with claims that it’s imoral and unjust. It has everything to do with them losing the hundreds of millions of dollars they were making from the human trafficking, the Mexican cartel drug lords, the children to sell to satanic worshipping pedophiles, the MS13 gang members that Nancy Pelosi thinks are misunderstood and the hundreds of thousands of votes the illegals would give them. The marxist democrats know that they are despised by the vast majority… Read more »

Dan Crenshaw ROCKS! Praying the words he spoke have not fallen on deaf ears. He is Proof that God has a bigger plan for each one of us. Representative Crenshaw did not allow the evil of war to take center stage in his life and define him. He rose above the circumstances to create a better life for he and his family. And, now he is working on OUR behalf to create a better America by defending the President in support of a border wall on our southern border. He should be commended for his efforts to knock down the LIES from the left.

There are pros and cons to that, and they will never vote themselves out of a cushy job with kickbacks. There are states that will always give us crappy legislators to replace the lifers.

To me the problem is with the voters and the ideology of the voters. IMO the media shapes public opinion so that’s the place to win. If we win in that arena the voters will put in different representatives. Unfortunately the media is out of control with misinformation and flat out lies, and it heavily favors the left. Then there’s the problem of indoctrination.

We must first get rid of the marxist control over our education system. The Common Core K-12 shool curriculum must be eliminated. All pro communist college professors must be removed from our colleges and unversities. Once we accomplish that the communist controled MSM will no longer have a steady supply of marxist indoctrinated sycophants to hire.

This is a general question for everyone on TRS, in other words, it’s not directed at anyone person – How many times a month do you contact your representatives? House? Senate? Assembly? Governor? I contact my LIBERAL representatives at least once a month, usually more because, hey…I live in California and there is a lot to complain about here. Making comments on blogs will make us feel better (or not), but they don’t do anything compared to what a call or letter to our representatives can do to chart a new path. Mine don’t listen to me. I get “canned” responses to questions and comments I never even voiced, probably just so they can say they responded. But, I respectfully remind them every time I call, especially the office staff, that they work for me. And my opinion should matter. So, don’t just leave comments on blogs, voice your complaints… Read more »

I commend you for contacting your reps, but you followed up by saying they ignore you. That’s the vibe everyone already gets. The Tea Party was huge and they openly gave us the middle finger and said they would crush it. They didn’t attempt to learn anything and some helped with the IRS scandal.

I always get a reply from my RINO Congressman, it always starts out the same way, with a long winded explanation of the issue I wrote to him about. I don’t need to have that crap regurgitated back to me, I already stated my opinion or opposition to whatever the issue was. He just blathers on about a bunch of nonsense but always, always values “my” opinion. Yeah right. Summing up every letter he’s ever written to me usually ends with a basic F U, I’ll do what I want. Term limits is the only answer to end the useless, endless RINO clown car parade.

That’s the most appalling and bogus argument ever. I apologize for being graphic, but when they drill a hole in the baby’s skull or cut it up into pieces the argument cannot be made that it’s part of the woman’s body. Additionally, as far as I know it’s a rare case where the mother’s health is in jeopardy and I believe the law already considers that.

Democrats aren’t talking about the trafficking because they don’t give a damn. Their power is tantamount to any human suffering and any crisis imported into the U.S. such as MS-13, drugs, and human trafficking. They go on and an and on about children trying to make themselves out to be the compassionate party, but there are children getting raped, mutilated, and killed and they don’t want to put a stop to the problem because it doesn’t help their goal of importing an ever expanding voting bloc.

Democrats are evil.

Two things:
1) It’s not about the wall, efficacy, or need. It’s about Democrats denying Trump a campaign promise fulfilled. Period.

This is an effective and persuasive defense of the need for tightening the border and reforming the badly abused asylum process.

It’s also an illustration of the value of the media covering for progressives, because the majority of the public will never see this video of Crenshaw, and will never hear this presentation of why a border wall is needed, why reform of the asylum process is needed, and why the current situation really does represent an emergency.

How many demonrats stayed to hear him? Common sense references are not facts that interest them and it is far from their narrative in life! I am sure Crenshaw is on AOC’s destroy list, along with any blue dog dems (if there are any left) who would agree with him. Demonrats are the enemies of the American people; they hate the president because he is correct, exudes common sense and vibrancy during rallies, he easily beat Hillary because, despite being the best candidate they have, the people hated her enough to toss her over yet again. Trump put a thorn in their agenda by convincing Americans to elect him POTUS and by actually making good on most promises (despite demonrats AND rinos working against him), thus demonrats also hate the American people. Giving demonrats power in the House is stupid. Just plain stupid.

Some on the left have accused ICE of forcing illegal alien children to take psychotropic drugs. Its an easy way to control children who are seized by the government. They want to go home. These drugs are dangerous and used as a chemical restraint. But this is nothing new to the government. Its sickening that the left only cares about illegal immigrant children when the foster care industry has been shoving these drugs down American children’s throats for decades.

I’m still convinced (until someone proves me wrong) that Obama and a few of his high-level friends cooked up the scheme back in 2013 and 2014 to have children begin migration in large numbers upward through Mexico. It was a way to try and break America’s will to repel border jumpers. The idea was get citizens to relent, via hours and hours of video footage of, “All of those poor children at the border,” and the Death Train to el Norte, and the rapes so common that parents sent young girls with birth control pills, and all of that… All. of. that. cruelty put on those children so that your Christian charity would get you accept them warmly. And then, of course the chain migration rules would mean each of their extended families were admitted. It was Obama at his most racist, exploitative, and ruthless moment, and it was all… Read more »

HidyhoHidyho I hoped the ploy would fail, but all that happened was newer and worse abuse of children. These masses of people bum rushing our border are being pushed into it by the same people who pushed the children back in 2014.

By the way, apparently Steve Bannon flipped on Ted Cruz at about the same time, because he insanely saw the “teddy bears” trip as capitulation, instead of the “expose Obama” moment it was, and he turned Breitbart from pro-Cruz to anti-Cruz overnight.

So Bannon owns a huge part of this children’s crisis, and deserves an extra warm place as a guest of old Scratch for it.

It’s similar to the foster care industry that began with cps removing children for abuse and escalated into children now being seized for neglect with no crime being charged. Missed dental appts and homeschooling have resulted in termination of parents rights. These children are traumatized for life. Drugged by the state and face homelessness, drug addiction, suicide and unemployment at a far greater rate than children not removed from similar “neglectful” homes. Children are more likely to be killed, sexually assaulted, bullied ostracized and turn into school shooters if in foster care or forced adoption than if left in marginal homes. Its a big money racket… From social workers to therapists psychatrists treatment centers group meetings shelters foster parents and on and on. Federal law requires that reunifucatuon services must be given except in severe abuse cases. This rarely happens. Families are set up to fail. I really wish someone… Read more »
