I always felt like Cassandra, not that I knew what would happen, but that I had the solutions to problems that were easily solvable. We suffered a year of lost control of the border because Department of Homeland Security (DHS) leadership was lying to the President. The surge of asylum seekers could have been stopped in two weeks with my plan of holding Mexico and Mexicans accountable for every third-county national who crossed the U.S.-Mexican border. [Attn: Stephen Miller—Trump Can Win The Border Fight In Two Weeks At No Cost (In Fact, Mexico Will Pay For It), by Federale, VDare, May 19, 2019] I also had a secondary solutions for the asylum problem. [More Options For Trump On The Caravan: Make Applicants For Asylum Wait IN MEXICO, by Federale, VDare, October 30, 2018] and deploying the Brown Water Navy to the Rio Grande. Well, one out of three ain’t bad, but by not using all my advice, a million illegal aliens got in the United States. Not so good for America.
Based Bill Barr, Better Than Sleepy Jeff
However, things are looking up. Based Bill Barr has been apparently reading VDare and my blog. The Department of Justice (DOJ) is going on the offensive against Sanctuary Cities. Included in this is apparent my long advised solution to this criminal activity, prosecuting Sanctuary Cities for aiding illegal aliens, prohibited by Title 8 United States Code Section 1324, Bringing In And Harboring Certain Aliens.
Attorney General William Barr announced Monday that there will be a “significant escalation” from the government against “sanctuary” cities, counties and states, including lawsuits against localities opposed to the Trump administration’s hard-line immigration policies.
The administration is attempting to crack down on local and state governments that have pledged to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation. Barr announced lawsuits against the state of New Jersey and King County, Wash., which includes Seattle.

Besides the lawsuits, it looks like meat is back on the menu. Sanctuary Cities will be prosecuted for aiding illegal aliens under 8 USC 1324.
Barr, speaking at the National Sheriffs’ Association 2020 Winter Legislative and Technology Conference, said the department is “reviewing the practices, policies and laws of other jurisdictions across the country” to see if they follow laws banning the “harboring or shielding” of undocumented immigrants, Axios reported.
Barr will also be using civil rights laws against local prosecutors who give sweetheart deals to illegal and other aliens, deals that are not offered to Americans.
He added the department will be “meticulously reviewing” the action Breat minds s of district attorneys who he said have been “charging foreign nationals with lesser offenses for the express purpose of avoiding the federal immigration consequences,” according to media reports.
I had been meaning to write on this issue, but never got around to it. Great minds think alike. Hopefully Based Bill will also be prosecuting Libby Schaaf as well. He should know that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California and the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General sabotaged a case against Schaaf.
