(National Sentinel)Â Danger Signs: The state of Arizona is beautiful, majestic, and full of wonderful people who only want the best for their state and our country.
But because the state’s entire southern border faces Mexico — and because successive administrations have, for decades, neglected our border security infrastructure (fencing, federal immigration patrols, etc.) — Arizona suffers nearly as much as Texas, mile for mile, when it comes toÂ illegal immigration.
Federal courts have ruled repeatedly that immigration enforcement and security of our international boundaries is aÂ federalÂ responsibility.
That said, to our knowledge, there’s never been a federal court thatÂ ordered the government to perform its core immigration enforcement and border security functions by whatever means necessary.
As such, we continue to have aÂ major problem willÂ illegal immigration in our country. Throw in drug smuggling and additional human trafficking issues (child sex slaves, MS-13, etc.), and you can begin to appreciate the gravity of the problem.
Arizona bears much of the bruntÂ of this illegal immigrant and drug smuggling invasion. Therefore, you would thinkÂ all Arizonans would wantÂ more border security, not less.
That’s not the case, apparently.
TheÂ Alt-Left Marxist revolutionary faction of the Democratic Party, which is growing in numbers, seriously believes we can maintain a viable countryÂ without an international boundary.
These fools seriously believe that “No borders” is something thatÂ most Americans want and would benefit from.
So they showed up at a debate forum for Democratic candidates to heckle and booÂ the one contender who not only supports ICE but who also refused to support crank Maxine Waters’ dog-whistle call to physically (violently?) confrontÂ all Trump administration figuresÂ when they are seen in public.
As theÂ Washington Free Beacon reports:
A congressional candidate from Arizona was booed at a debate after she expressed support for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Ann Kirkpatrick, a candidate for Arizonaâ€™s 2ndÂ Congressional District, prompted jeers after raising her hand in response to a question about whether any of the debate participants “would have declared [their] support for ICE agents without any increased oversight.”
Kirkpatrick drew the ire of the crowd again when she raised her hand in support of Democratic leadershipâ€™s condemnation of comments made by Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.).
Waters controversiallyÂ called for supporters to harassÂ Trump administration officials, saying at a rally, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them theyâ€™re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Our border states are awash in illegal activity, from people trying to get into the U.S. improperly to drug and human trafficking.Â
It’s out of control and itÂ has been for decades.
But an increasing number ofÂ Democrats areÂ actually aligning with criminal aliens over the best interestsÂ of American citizens.
LetÂ that sink in.
More from the Beacon:
A number of activists and Democratic politicians have coalesced aroundÂ calls to abolish ICEÂ in protest of the Trump administration’s immigration policies.Â Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) called ICE a “deportation force” and called for its elimination. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.)Â saidÂ “we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works.”
POTUS Donald Trump isÂ the first president to seriously address the problem in modern history.
To oppose anyone who wants better border security andÂ legal immigration to be the rule of the day, as well as one of the few agencies tasked with shoring border security and deporting those here illegally,Â is just not sane.
Watch the madness:
