NYT Uses Tiny New Mexico Town
to Claim There’s No Border Crisis

Washington Free Beacon, by Charles Fain Lehman

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/11/2019 7:10:07 AM

Somewhere along the United States´ 2,000-mile border with Mexico is a town unconcerned by what President Donald Trump has called a border "crisis," and the New York Times is on it. "On the Border, Little Enthusiasm for a Wall: ‘We Have Other Problems That Need Fixing,´" the Times reported. The source for this claim is not polling data, but rather interviews primarily with residents of the tiny town of Columbus, N.M.

Comments:
Population: 1609. Speaking for the entire 2000 mile border. The NYT thinks that is adequate, while saying the border is long and varied.

One local bemoans a labor shortage and said they should have more illegals.

Clearly the residents of the town of Columbus, NM (and the NY Times) don´t remember what Pancho Villa did in 1916.

What are the "other problems that need fixing"? I don´t read the Slimes so I don´t if they were mentioned or not. If that small border town has had one illegal drug related death or one dwi by an illegal then they have a border problem may not be a crisis but it will become one someday. I live near Houston and we have drunk illegals killing and maiming American citizens almost weekly. I´m surprised that the Slimes didn´t find a small town in northern Alaska that claims "there´s no border crisis" Fake News at its finest!

New Mexico isn´t and never has been the border crossing place of choice. Once you crossed the border in NM, there´s literally nothing ahead for miles except wilderness, desert and mountains This is why there´s less of a problem in New Mexico. The illegals want to get to somewhere fast.

Here´s the truth about Columbus New Mexico. I have been there camping a few times there´s a state park there, one store, one Mexican restaurant and a railroad museum. All the people around there besides residents are Border Patrol and state workers Park Rangers at the campground. Going north up the road is a massive Border Patrol roadblock then approximately 18 more miles is the first large town of Deming. A person if they are not caught has to go 30 miles through cactus on foot to get to Deming. I did see illegals in the Rockhound State Park in Deming once using the restrooms and washing then on the hiking trails with small children in tow. Many automobiles with Mexico plates go through the area into Deming and Las Cruses to shop but they have to go through the road block.
The New York Times cherry picked this sleepy town because most of the crossing is west toward Bisbee Arizona on open uninhabited land but it´s still wild in that area but no wall just Border Patrol on horseback and trucks for support.

Come camping with me boys.
I´ll bet you will not be able to sleep for fear. Weenies.
Where I love to go will no longer be fun once the wall is up. The view shall be destroyed.
There is nobody within 50 to 100 miles of my campsites. Nobody but Mexicans on the other side of the River. Yes. They cross. I do too.
Never asking permission. The nearest hospital will be, at least 120 miles away so be careful.

Once we have a wall a lot of beauty and a lot of freedom dies. Enforce the LAW. All the rest is {gag, spit} politics.

Trump should fix the democrats by giving them exactly what they want. He should announce that Chuck and Nancy convinced him that it would be in America´s best interests to declare the border with Mexico wide open and immediately disban ICE and the Border Patrol. Use the money collected to put up huge signs declaring, "Bienvenido a Los Estados Unidos!"

Then announce his retirement, sit back and watch the sparks fly. But then he´s a nicer guy than me. /S of course

Smuggling of illicit drugs and illegal aliens into the USA has been a major unlawful industry operating in and around border towns for many generations. So anyone there who has profited either directly or indirectly from such smuggling activities is bound to oppose an effective borderline barrier that blocks those crimes and profits from continuing. Most illegal aliens who crossed the borderline there unlawfully, were not destined to Columbus, NM, but we’re headed for interior cities and only spent a few hours in so-called “drop houses” in the Columbus area until they were picked up by illegal alien transporters and taken to interior locations.

Everyone knows that a chain is only as good as its weakest link. Thus, America´s borders define USA´s sovereign territory and so MUST be protected & defended. There are elderly people living along the N.M. border right now who used to routinely, easily & safely visit their relatives on Mexico´s side of the border but now they are afraid to because it is too dangerous due to the drug cartels.

The dire situation all along the southern border is tragic in so many ways. The only way to restore civility and peace is to enforce the law!

President Donald Trump said on Friday that he will nominate Stephen Moore, who has been critical of Federal Reserve policy and its current chairman, to one of two vacant seats on the board. "I will be nominating Mr. Moore for the Fed," Trump said. "He´s going to be great." Moore, 59, previously served as a Trump 2016 campaign adviser and is currently a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation. He also co-authored a 2018 book titled, "Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy."

Key Democratic operatives and private investigators who tried to derail Donald Trump’s campaign by claiming he was a tool of the Kremlin have rebooted their operation since his election with a multimillion-dollar stealth campaign to persuade major media outlets and lawmakers that the president should be impeached. The effort has successfully placed a series of questionable stories alleging secret back channels and meetings between Trump associates and Russian spies, while influencing related investigations and reports from Congress. The operation’s nerve center is a Washington-based nonprofit called The Democracy Integrity Project, or TDIP.

The neoconservative movement has always been more of an alternative left than a school of conservatism proper. Hence the right’s main enemy has long been not the left, but the phony, neoconservative right. For the right cannot realize conservative values—nationalist economics, immigration restriction, anti-interventionist foreign policy, opposition to “progressive” social issues like gay marriage and abortion—if the right itself effectively works with the left to advance the opposite values.

Ten suspected terror plotters have been arrested in Germany on suspicion of planning a jihadist attack with a car and guns. German prosecutors said the 10 suspects were under investigation for plotting to ´kill as many people as possible´. The suspects, ranging in age from 20 to 42, were detained in raids conducted by police in the region around Frankfurt earlier on Friday.

Those who doubt the operation of a beneficent, or at least an amusing, providence should consider the case of the British writer Titania McGrath. Margaret Ann Bulkley may have decided to move to South Africa and live her life as a man. But Titania McGrath, a Twitter sensation and the author of the forthcoming Woke: A Guide to Social Justice, is “a radical intersectionalist poet committed to feminism, social justice, and armed peaceful protest. A regular on the live-slam poetry scene, Titania regularly performs at arts festivals, deconsecrated churches, and genderqueer spiritual retreats.” Nice!

“The world,” “the planet,” and “other nations” get a lot of mentions in the speeches of newly elected members of Congress such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). Each of them focuses on what can be done globally, usually at the expense of the United States. This calls into question whether they are here to represent their district constituents or if they are on a mission to submit America to global governance. Like a misguided college undergraduate, Ocasio-Cortez awkwardly intones the alleged merits of socialism, conveniently ignoring

Another week, a new harvest of insane Democratic pre-electoral hobby horses. Various of the numberless swarm of presidential aspirants in that party have glibly chimed in with their views of how to modify American government to assure a permanent “progressive” majority. Gathering steam now are absurd ideas to side-step the Electoral College, pack the Supreme Court, lower the voting age to 16, and divide the political rubble heap of California into three or four states to create more Democratic senators. All of this is nonsense, emanating from the same political fairyland

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.
