PoliticsCall Sanctuary Leaders What They Are: Traitors

October 7, 2019

We’ve had enough talk.

Unchecked migration into the U.S. is an existential crisis. The left knows it, which is why they push so hard for open borders and the demographic transformation it will produce. The establishment Republicans know it, too, but they feign naïveté in order to let their masters and friends on the left win.

There are some honest constitutionalists and conservatives in Congress, but even they refuse to accept that it’s time for hardball. Real hardball.

These conservatives wail and condemn whenever Democratic politicians take actions enabling the further invasion of the United States by illegal aliens. They go on Fox News and make clever rebukes that become viral headlines.

But at the end of the day, what do they accomplish?

All around America, we have sanctuary cities and states that lure illegal aliens here with offers of “free” goods and services (paid for by American citizens, of course), then keep those illegals here by preventing immigration enforcement from doing its job.

Remember Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who tipped illegals off about an ICE raid? Her stunt allowed 900 aliens, including 800 public safety threat criminals, to get away.

Now we have New Mexico’s new Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, who on Tuesday ordered the withdrawal of the majority of her state’s National Guard from the border—even as one caravan after another of thousands of migrants tries to force its way into our country.

“New Mexico will not take part in the president’s charade of border fear-mongering by misusing our diligent National Guard troops,” Lujan Grisham said.

These sanctuary mayors and governors are defiant. Unapologetic. And you know what? They’re right to have that attitude.

Why? Because there’s no consequence for what they do. Of course they’re going to keep doing it. Of course they’re going to be brazen.

If you want to stop them, you have to take action against them. Not talk. Action.

You have to call these sanctuary politicians what they are: Traitors. And you have to prosecute them as traitors. That means prison time for all of them.

The Constitution is clear:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

-U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3

Traitors. What else do you call someone who gives “aid and comfort” to foreign invaders, including vicious gangbangers and drug smugglers?

What else do you call someone who acts completely counter to his constitutional obligation to “protect each of [the states] against invasion?”

The Constitution says no one shall be convicted of treason except “on the testimony of two witnesses.” Well, we have millions of witnesses because these sanctuary politicians are betraying their country openly.

That’s how pitiful our political culture is right now. That we have elected officials openly committing treason—and gloating about it—without any consequences.

Again, the only way we can stop this sabotaging of America from within is to actively bring the full weight of the law upon these subversives. Imprisoning them will take away their movements’ power, reduce their numbers, and dissuade other politicians from following in their footsteps.

It’s not going to be a pretty sight. Sending elected officials to prison never is. But here’s what many well-meaning conservatives fail to understand: Sometimes, doing the right thing isn’t pretty. Actually, a lot of times it isn’t.

If Republicans go after the traitors and begin sending them to prison, the media will explode in outrage. There will be protests. There will probably be riots. The GOP leaders who have the courage to go through with this will be called fascists, Nazis, despots, etc.

But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. The name-calling, the scathing New York Times editorials, the calls to resign—none of that matters. What matters is doing what’s right for the future generations of Americans.

The question is: What matters more to you? Getting along with your Democrat colleagues? Receiving praise and adulation from the media? Or protecting the lives, freedom, safety, faith, and finances of your children?

Anyone who’s a real man doesn’t have to think twice about which they would choose.

And if your reputation is so important to you, remember this:

A good reputation in Heaven often comes by earning the scorn of the world.

A good reputation in the history books comes by being the victor. And we can’t win if we lose the immigration battle.
