Interesting bit in Casablanca Ferrari tells Rick how they could make a fortune in refugees alone ...
Like today millions of refugees are fleeing the globalist carnage ...

It is interesting of because Casablanca means "White House" where Rick runs his casino ...

Travesty of Legal Errors in Immigration EO Lawsuit
http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/02/06/travesty-legal-errors-immigration-eo-lawsuit/



Quote
Washington and Minnesota’s lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s immigration executive order (EO) showcases a cavalcade of legal errors.

First, the lawsuit could have been dismissed by the district court (or the court of appeals) in whole or in part for lack of jurisdiction.

Second, the district court did not give the required legal reasoning in its order to justify the TRO.

Third, the court had no business enjoining the executive order nationwide, instead of just in the two states.

But fourth, once the district court issued the TRO, the appeals court had no authority to touch any other aspect of this legal challenge until it reaches the next stage of litigation.


Drain the swamp of activist lawyers and judges! They are destroying the judicial system! This has to start at the Dept of Justice on down. Professionalism has to return to America!

Watch federal judge James Robart's ‪#BlackLivesMatter‬declaration, plus his challenge to Seattle's police union.

Robart, ALL LIVES MATTER. Did Soros get to you? The globalists? This is activism, it is not being an unbiased true professional Judge!

It seems he is into globalist "social justice" , instead of real American "justice for all."



George Soros' quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice system - Progressives have zeroed in on electing prosecutors as an avenue for criminal justice reform, and the billionaire financier is providing the cash to make it happen.

FWIW, NPR (ugh) commented on section 3c.
http://www.npr.org/2017/01/31/512439121/trumps-executive-order-on-immigration-annotated

So we have the refugee program and the visa waiver program in play.

Visa waiver seemed straightforward enough until I ran in to this wiki entry.

So, if you were, say,  a UK citizen, but had previously traveled to Syria, you suddenly needed a visa where none was required before. Or you would need a written waiver from the  Secretary of Homeland Security for entry.

Same goes for dual citizens. If you lived most of your life in France, but were born in Iran, and retained citizenship there, maybe because a lot of family still lives there, then suddenly no VWP for you.

Combine this with the sheer volume of international travelers and I can see how it all got messy overnight.

There are all sorts of messy complications like this, but I don't think these are being considered by the court. The appellee's submission was due earlier today and Trump's DOJ reply is due by 6pm Pacific, so it will be interesting to see the legal arguments used.

Trump probably has the right to order at least some some of what is in the EO, but his entitled and petulant tweets during this affair have done him no favors, and frankly, he continues to be an embarassment to the country.

Quote
The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned![/b]

What does Trump know about the law and constitution? The Constitution means nothing to Trump - he mentioned it 0 times during his inauguration speech, and during the campaign only seemed to know about the 2nd Amendment.

Quote
Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad!

Ridiculous fearmongering complete garbage. Hey Trump, how many people from those countries have even arrested for any plots against this country, let alone been found to commit any terror acts? This is a question which Judge Robart asked at the hearing:

http://www.voanews.com/a/seattle-judge-travel-ban-conservative-/3706748.html

Quote
Another former Seattle U.S. attorney, Jenny Durkan, called Robart exacting: “We won some in front of him and we lost some in front of him, but we knew anytime we walked into his courtroom we’d better be prepared.”

That was evident Friday when Robart grilled a Justice Department lawyer, Michelle Bennett, asking if foreign nationals from the seven countries named in the order had been arrested for plots in the U.S. since 9/11. Bennett said she didn’t know.

“The answer to that is none, best I can tell,” Robart said. “You’re here arguing on behalf of someone that says we have to protect the United States from these individuals coming from these countries, and there’s no support for that.”

He added that he was tasked with determining whether the president’s order was “grounded in facts, as opposed to fiction.

OBAMA GAO REPORT BACKS TRUMP
ON TOUGHER AIRLINE SCREENING

Security expert warns there's no way to know how many threats slip through
02/06/2017 - LEO HOHMANN

A newly released Government Accounting Office study reveals more than 22,000 U.S.-bound foreign travelers were banned from boarding their flights in fiscal 2015.

These “high risk” travelers were interdicted by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents before boarding planes bound for the U.S. Among that group, 10,648 were deemed permanently inadmissible while the remaining 11,589 were told they could not board with the paperwork presented.

The GAO study goes on to lament that netting 22,000 suspect travelers reveals nothing about the pre-boarding program’s effectiveness. That’s because CPB has failed to develop a baseline system of assessing how many of the overall high-risk travelers are caught before boarding the planes and showing up at a U.S. airport, which is the last line of defense against potential terrorists.

Quote
Here is a key quote from the report:

“CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] data show that it identified and interdicted over 22,000 high-risk air travelers in fiscal year 2015 through its pre-departure programs. CBP officers at Preclearance locations determined that 10,648 of the approximately 16 million air travelers seeking admission to the United States through such locations were inadmissible. Similarly, CBP, through its IAP, JSP, and RCLG locations, made 11,589 no-board recommendations to air carriers for the approximately 88 million air travelers bound for the United States from such locations. While CBP’s pre-departure programs have helped identify and interdict high-risk travelers, CBP has not fully evaluated the overall effectiveness of these programs using performance measures and baselines
.”

.... Dr. Mark Christian, founder of the Global Faith Institute and a former Muslim imam:...
“We appreciate the Atlantic Ocean more than ever right now, because if it weren’t for that ocean many more millions would be crossing the sea in boats like they are in Europe,” he said. “You can see there is a craziness going on in America right now and it’s manifesting in the Arab world because Muslims in these lands didn’t know they had a right to come to America, but they are seeing Sen. Chuck Schumer and these others wiping tears for the Muslims, telling them that they always had a right to come.”

The appellees' arguments, while various in detail, are essentially based on Trump's EO impacting the 'sovereign and quasi-soverign interests of individual States'. So it's a States Rights argument, which will greatly annoy certain so-called libertarians in the alternative media and elsewhere.

My wild guess is that the 9th Circuit will not grant Trump's emergency stay because the DOJ will not be able to show immediate harm or a public interest in not granting the stay, even though the DOJ might be correct in arguing that the TRO is overbroad. See the following part of the brief:

The Emergency Motion for a Stay Should Be Denied Because Granting It Would Cause Further Chaos.
A stay is not a matter of right, but an “exercise of judicial discretion that is dependent upon the circumstances of the particular case.” Lair v. Bullock, 697 F.3d 1200,  1203  (9th  Cir.  2012)  (citations  and internal  quotation  marks  omitted). In evaluating a stay motion, this Court’s discretion is guided by a four factor analysis that asks (1) whether the applicant “is likely to succeed on the merits;” (2) “whether the applicant will be irreparably injured absent a stay;” (3) whether issuance of the stay  will  “substantially  injure”  other  interested  parties;  and  (4)  “where  the  public interest  lies.” 
Id.(quoting  Nken  v.  Holder,  556  U.S.  418,  434  (2009).)  The  party requesting the stay “bears the burden of showing that the circumstances justify an exercise of this Court’s discretion.” Lair, 697 F.3d at 1203(quoting Nken, 556 U.S. at 433-34) (brackets omitted).

As the District Court concluded, Washington is likely to succeed on the merits  of  its  challenge  to  the  Executive  Order.  Indeed,  in  the  ten  days  since  the  Executive  Order  was  signed,  district  courts  across  the  Nation  have  determined—both expressly and by implication—that claims like those advanced by Washington and Minnesota are likely to succeed on the merits.

The stronger argument seems to be to allow the status quo to remain in place pending a proper examination by the district court, which will result in a ruling which can then be appealed if necessary.

My question to those who are strongly in favor of the ban, is why? Given that falling donkeys have harmed more people than visitors and immigrants/refugees from these seven countries, why is this travel ban so important to you? A review of procedures can be carried out without the ban being in place, without a reasonable expectation of harm, whereas the ban being in place does cause harm to families, businesses, states' interests, life in general, and so on. The case for having this temporary ban only makes real sense in the context of it not being intended to be temporary at all.

(CNN)Three federal judges Tuesday evening will hear oral arguments in the challenge to President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration.

The hour-long hearing, conducted by telephone among three West coast judges at 6 p.m. ET, will determine the immediate fate of the nationwide temporary restraining order against Trump's travel ban.
---
The three-judge panel includes Judge William C. Canby Jr, an appointee of President Jimmy Carter, Judge Michelle T. Friedland, who was appointed by President Barack Obama, and Judge Richard R. Clifton, an appointee of President George W. Bush. It is likely that they will make their decisions based on the legal briefs they receive and not ask for a hearing.

Trump Muslim Ban Throws TV Shows into Chaos
2/2/2017 12:50 AM PST

President Trump's immigration order has Hollywood execs and actors freaking out ... because Muslim and Middle Eastern roles are pivotal for a bunch of TV shows.

Casting sources tell us ... the 2 networks hit the hardest by Trump's order are NBC and Netflix. "For God and Country" -- produced by the "Homeland" folks -- have a pilot order from NBC which calls for a number of Middle Eastern actors.

We're told Netflix has a show in the works which also features numerous Middle Eastern characters.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Amazing, 325,000 entrys into the USA the first day of the ban, out of that 109 were detained and questioned.
Obama had a ban , but Trump can't?  The slant is on folks.
  Is it realy about this temporary ban?   Uh Uh, there is much more.
I'll get ragged on this, but I can't help saying it.....Are there a % of citizens that don't want jobs or is that off the wall.
Been watching the MSM, focus on these demos and it is sureal, it's obvious the more violent % of these folks are getting a paycheck.. No earthshaking news, I know.
 Bringing America back  on track will challenge people who have no concept as to  the consitution, their freedoms,
 and the blood spilled that gave us this privledge.
Soros, the face for the globalists is determined to bring down the USA with the pied piper flute, LaLa land is  a no border planet reasoning.  Un mucken real, give them free passage to Saudi Arabia, lets make a deal.
 ( I wouldn't doubt if if these demonstrators ask to be a special rights group).
Bottom line, the mayors & Governors need to have a chat, are they are responsible for this sh**t. The cops do what the mayors tell them, the police chiefs are on orders so tell me who is in fact responsible.
 I have not seen one logical explanation from one demonstrator as to the logic of this sh**t, other than those who have admitted being paid.

We are not at war with ANY of those countries. Congress makes declarations of war. Rule by decree and Executive Order have become rather fashionable in some quarters since the Twitt-in-Chief was installed in office, but it is no less unconstitutional a manner to go about things now than under the Obama regime.

However we know how little Trump thinks of the Constitution, so I fear these concerns will not trouble him much. The very last thing we needed in the White House was a stooge of the zionists and neocons, following orders from his superior Netanyahoo, with very little knowledge and experience of his own and  therefore entirely manipulable; but that is what we have unfortunately.

..and the fact that a large percentage of the "refugees" entering our country, un-vetted, are military age men with facebook pages and twitter accounts that display the ISIS flag... just to get the girls... don't ya know...

Any evidence for that... waffle...? And no, emotive pics and youtube videos do not count.

It's not my argument as it happens, which you would know if you had made sure you understood what was written before replying to it. However you are also wrong (imagine my surprise) about the case being made by the appellees, which of course you haven't read and/or understood.

"We have a federal district judge in Seattle who basically second-guessed the president on the wisdom and propriety of the president's executive order," Napolitano said, adding it's "absolutely not the job of federal judges in our society."

Michelle Friedland Sworn In as Ninth Circuit Judge (Why this rookie on such an important case? )
https://www.mto.com/news/headlines/2014/Michelle-Friedland-Sworn-In-as-Ninth-Circuit-Judge


Quote
Former Munger, Tolles & Olson partner Michelle T. Friedland was sworn in on June 13, 2014 as a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Judge Friedland was confirmed to the Ninth Circuit on April 28, 2014 by the U.S. Senate. She was nominated to the Ninth Circuit by President Obama in August 2013. She ranks fourth among the youngest appointees to the Ninth Circuit bench.

Judge Canby #9

Quote
In 2012, Judge Canby was one of two appeals judges who halted deportation proceedings for seven immigrants and asked prosecutors to explain whether the immigrants could avoid deportation under new directives from the Obama administration. At the time, some judges and legislators criticized the decision as an overreach of judicial authority.

Judge Canby wrote a unanimous ruling in 2006 that barred the deportation of an Iranian man in the U.S.

We are not at war with ANY of those countries. Congress makes declarations of war. Rule by decree and Executive Order have become rather fashionable in some quarters since the Twitt-in-Chief was installed in office, but it is no less unconstitutional a manner to go about things now than under the Obama regime.

However we know how little Trump thinks of the Constitution, so I fear these concerns will not trouble him much. The very last thing we needed in the White House was a stooge of the zionists and neocons, following orders from his superior Netanyahoo, with very little knowledge and experience of his own and  therefore entirely manipulable; but that is what we have unfortunately.

Any evidence for that... waffle...? And no, emotive pics and youtube videos do not count.

It's not my argument as it happens, which you would know if you had made sure you understood what was written before replying to it. However you are also wrong (imagine my surprise) about the case being made by the appellees, which of course you haven't read and/or understood. But in any case, you shouldn't even bother trying to debate the Constitution especially after your performance in this thread:

            Are you suggesting we don't do background check on the entrys?  No matter, forget I wrote that I don't need an argument. There is more behind this than the ban, this is but one step, one message sent to the globalists, the would be terrorists, and the US citizens.  We are wiseing up to the migration, or is it they are  all happy Lil bunny's  anxious to become good lil Americans in total acceptance of our way of life. A step had to be taken, a 1st. step, the Trump cares about the nation, this was not a jackboot step, nothing but a message.
Your remark on Iz.        Benny Netanyahu is well aware a 2 state solution is the only answer, the situation reminds me of a saying, "Don't bite the hand that feeds you", well reverse that,  Palestine has been treated just the opposite. The son of a general wrote a book on the topic. I feel like Im' babbling to make a point, in short the hatred  has been ongoing..

STATE DEPT. INSIDER EXPOSES REFUGEE PROGRAM AS 'FULL OF FRAUD' - Whistleblower shocks with letter defending president's authority to implement reforms

I fully support President Donald Trump's executive order that temporarily halts admissions from the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and bans travel from nationals of countries that potentially pose a security risk to the United States; however, I donʼt think the action goes far enough. Further, I believe there are many people throughout the country who feel the same way.

As a recently retired 25-year veteran of the U.S. Department of State who served almost eight years as a refugee coordinator throughout the Middle East, Africa, Russia and Cuba, I have seen first-hand the abuses and fraud that permeate the refugee program and know about the entrenched interests that fight every effort to implement much-needed reform.

Chris,

He can't, but to him that's okay... he care-less-ly knows everything in his anima anyway... so he's just flailing about saying stuff in a way that was aptly described by Alex on today's show regarding trumps open and instructive adherence to the Law and the affect this is having on the delusional 'left/authoritarian courts, judges, and MSM', "... that is now digging it's own grave in front of everyone and is already basically climbed in and is dumping piles of dirt in on top of itself, uh, with pleasure, uh, with delusional pleasure... so as all that psychosis is going on, Trump continues to basically turn the knife and READS THE LAW..." Title 8 USC, 1182,(f), to the Association of Sheriffs...

We can only hope to keep him scrambling for his search engine...(chuckle)...

A look at the judges who will rule on Trump’s travel ban

http://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/a-look-at-the-judges-who-will-rule-on-trumps-travel-ban-2/

Quote
WILLIAM CANBY

Canby rarely hears cases anymore. Now 85, he told The Associated Press two years ago that he felt sharp and healthy, but didn’t want to risk a job hazard that federal judges with lifetime appointments face: age-related mental decline. So it was unusual for the judge to hear oral arguments over the Trump travel ban.

Quote
Michelle Friedland

In private practice, she represented major clients, including Berkshire Hathaway, Boeing and the University of California.


Quote
Richard Clifton

Of the three judges who heard arguments over the travel ban, Clifton had the toughest questions for the attorney representing the two states — Washington and Minnesota — challenging it.

You've relegated yourself to recalcitrantly lobbing pebbles from the sidelines, which is a bit sad.

Trump can recite 'the Law (duh)' until his fake tan falls off, but it just shows how ignorant he is, since he does not understand the arguments in this case.

Trump and Alex Jones should try reading and understanding my explanation in this post: http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=318855.msg1619311#msg1619311 (you shouldn't even bother though bud).

Chris , I don't want to divert this thread into Israel/Palestine, but my reply to you is pretty much as it was here: http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=318459.msg1615272#msg1615272

I did not say that Trump ignores the Constitution - he would need to know what is in the document first. I said he does not concern himsel with it - he does not care about it. How many times have you heard him talk about the Constitution? If you exclude his demagogic references to the 2nd amendment during the campaign, it is virtually none. Compare that to someone sensible and educated on the subject like Rand Paul, and you get the point. Also, as I have said before,  Trump actively holds the constitution in contempt when, for example, he spoke in favor of the mass surveillance of the American people, which is a violation of the 4th amendment.

This is shaping up to be obstructionist and anti-Trump because....Trump. If Hillary was in the seat and did the same thing we wouldn't  hear a peep about it.

I'm looking at the growing lawsuits and the delays throughout the court system. And, frankly, I see no real argument for striking down a lawful EO like this. It's driven by money and politics.

I predict the 9th circuit will take their time before ruling against Trump. After all, we're still stuck in San Fransicko. And then the whole thing will be appealed. Meanwhile, the civil lawsuits brought by corporations will clog the courts with frivolity and fodder for the MSM.

Tons of videos popping up on YT showing Bill Clinton and Obama calling for greater border control during their reign. Nobody complained about it back then. The “news” was busy reporting on ling-ling, the panda.

You may be right, since this is all happening in such liberal court systems. Very sad!

If they rule the wrong way on this one, it will be for all to see and will give Trump even more credibility saying the courts are political and are not doing their job. When one rogue judge does this, he/she destroys the credibility for all judges. That is shameful and good judges should not tolerate it.

Lets hope Sessions can expose the rogues and elevate the real judges who do their jobs, and Trump can appt some good judges during his term to replace the unprofessional failures.

For those that missed Trump's comments about this yesterday.

Remarks by President Trump at MCCA Winter Conference
J.W. Marriott
Washington, D.C.
9:18 A.M. EST

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you very much.  This is -- great to be with people I truly feel comfortable with.  Please sit down.  They’ll say I didn’t get a standing ovation because they never sat down.  (Laughter.)  And I say, I got one standing ovation because they never sat down. 

But I want to thank you.  I have great, great love for what you do and the way you do it.  And when I’m with the police chiefs and I’m with the sheriffs of our country -- and these are the big ones.  These are the really big ones.  I just want to thank you very much.  And I thought before I spoke about what we’re really here to speak about, I would read something to you.  Because you can be a lawyer, or you don’t have to be a lawyer; if you were a good student in high school or a bad student in high school, you can understand this. 

And it’s really incredible to me that we have a court case that’s going on so long.  As you know, in Boston, we won it with a highly respected judge and a very strong opinion, but now we’re in an era that, let’s just say, they are interpreting things differently than probably 100 percent of the people in this room.  I’d like to almost know, does anybody disagree when I read this.

But I’m going to read what’s in dispute, what’s in question.  And you will see this -- it’s INA 212(f) 8 U.S.C. 1182(f):  “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President” -- okay, now, this isn’t just me, this is for Obama, for Ronald Reagan, for the President.  And this was done, very importantly, for security -- something you people know more about than all of us.  It was done for the security of our nation, the security of our citizens, so that people come in who aren’t going to do us harm.

And that’s why it was done.  And it couldn’t have been written any more precisely.  It’s not like, oh, gee, we wish it were written better.  It was written beautifully.  So just listen, here’s what it says.  This is what they’re arguing: 

"Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens" -- okay, the entry, the entry of any aliens -- "or of any class of aliens" -- so any aliens, any class of aliens -- "into the United States" -- so the entry of people into the United States.  Let’s say, just to be precise, of aliens into the United States. 

So any time -- "whenever the President finds that the entry of any alien or any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States" -- right?  So if I find, as President, that a person or group of people will be detrimental to the interests of the United States -- and certainly there’s lots of examples that we have, but you shouldn’t even have them, necessarily -- he may be -- and "he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary…"  Now, the only mistake is they should have said "he or she."  But hopefully, it won’t be a she for at least another seven years.  After that, I’m all -- (laughter and applause.)  See?  I just noticed that, actually.  I just noticed it.  I’m saying, whoa, this is not politically correct.  It’s correct, but it’s not politically correct, you know, this is the old days.

He may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary -- so here it is, people coming in -- suspend the entry of all aliens.  Right?  That’s what it says.  It’s not like -- again, a bad high school student would understand this.  Anybody would understand this.  Suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens.  Okay, so you can suspend the aliens, right?  You can suspend the aliens from coming in -- very strong -- or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

Okay.  So you can suspend, you can put restrictions, you can do whatever you want.  And this is for the security of the country -- which, again, you’re the chiefs, you’re the sheriffs.  You understand this. 

And I listened to lawyers on both sides last night, and they were talking about things that had just nothing to do with it.  I listened to a panel of judges, and I’ll comment on that -- I will not comment on the statements made by certainly one judge.  But I have to be honest that if these judges wanted to, in my opinion, help the court in terms of respect for the court, they'd what they should be doing.  I mean, it’s so sad. 

They should be -- when you read something so simple and so beautifully written, and so perfectly written -- other than the one statement, of course, having to do with he or she -- but when you read something so perfectly written and so clear to anybody, and then you have lawyers and you watched -- I watched last night in amazement, and I heard things that I couldn’t believe, things that really had nothing to do with what I just read. 

And I don’t ever want to call a court biased, so I won’t call it biased.  And we haven’t had a decision yet.  But courts seem to be so political, and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what’s right.  And that has to do with the security of our country, which is so important.

Right now, we are at risk because of what happened.  General Kelly is an extremely talented man and a very good man -- now Secretary Kelly, Homeland Security.  We are doing our job.  He’s a great man.  (Applause.)  We’re doing our job.  And one of the reasons you probably heard that we did it so quickly -- in fact, I said, let’s give a one-month notice, and then law enforcement -- and General Kelly was so great because he said, we totally knew about it.  We knew about everything.  We do things well.  We did things right.

But the law enforcement people said to me, oh, you can’t give a notice, because if you give a notice that you’re going to be really tough in one month from now, or in one week from now -- I suggested a month and I said, well, what about a week?  They said, no, you can’t do that, because then people are going to pour in before the toughness goes on.  Do you people agree?  I mean, you know more about law than anybody, law enforcement.  (Applause.) 

So I wanted to give, like, a month.  Then I said, well, what about a week?  They said, well, then you’re going to have a whole pile of people perhaps -- perhaps -- with very evil intentions coming in before the restrictions.

So there it is, folks.  It’s as plain as you can have it.  I didn’t -- and I was a good student.  I understand things.  I comprehend very well, okay?  Better than I think almost anybody.  And I want to tell you, I listened to a bunch of stuff last night on television that was disgraceful.  It was disgraceful.  Because what I just read to you is what we have, and it just can’t be written any plainer or better.  And for us to be going through this -- and, by the way, a highly, highly respected judge in Boston ruled very strongly in our favor.  You heard that.

In fact, I said to my people, why don’t you use the Boston case?  And there were reasons why they couldn’t use the Boston case.  This one came later for various reasons.  But use the Boston case.  And I won’t read that, but there were statements made by that judge -- who, again, highly respected -- that were right on.  They were perfect.  They were perfect.

So I think it’s sad.  I think it’s a sad day.  I think our security is at risk today.  And it will be at risk until such time as we are entitled and get what we are entitled to as citizens of this country.  As chiefs, as sheriffs of this country, we want security. 

One of the reasons I was elected was because of law and order and security.  It’s one of the reasons I was elected.  Also jobs and lots of other things.  But I think one of the strongest reasons is security.  And they’re taking away our weapons one by one, that’s what they’re doing.  And you know it and I know it, and you people have been very unhappy for a long period of time.  And I can read the polls maybe better than anybody because it seems that I understood the polls a lot better than many of the pollsters understood the polls -- assuming they were honest polls, which I think probably many of them weren’t.  I really believe that.  (Applause.)

But we need security in our country.  We have to allow you folks to do your job.  You’re great people, great people.  Great men and women.  And we have to allow you to do your job.  And we have to give you the weapons that you need.  And this is a weapon that you need.  And they’re trying to take it away from you, maybe because of politics or maybe because of political views.  We can’t let that happen.

So with that, let’s get on to business, right?  It’s really something.  Thank you.  (Applause.) 

I want to thank Sheriff Sandra Hutchens and Chief Tom Manger for your leadership and, frankly, for the service.  You have had great service.  Everyone has told me about you two legendary people.  All of us here today are united by one shared mission:  to serve and protect the public of the United States.
 

During my campaign for President, I had the chance to spend time with law enforcement officials all across our country.  They are the most incredible people you will ever meet.  And I just wanted to say to all of them right now, from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you.  (Applause.) 

There are many actions we in the federal government can take to help improve safety in your communities.  But I believe that community safety begins with moral leadership.  Our police officers, sheriffs and deputies risk their lives every day.  And they’re entitled to an administration that has their back.  (Applause.) 

The first step in restoring public safety is affirming our confidence in the men and women charged with upholding our laws.  And I’m going to add justices, judges in that category.  And I’m very proud to have picked Judge Gorsuch, who I think is going to be an outstanding member of the Supreme Court -- outstanding.  (Applause.) 

So I’d like to begin my remarks with a declaration issued to all of you, and delivered to every member of the law enforcement community all across the United States.  My message today is that you have a true, true friend in the White House.  You have.  (Applause.)  I stand with you.  I support our police.  I support our sheriffs.  And we support the men and women of law enforcement.  (Applause.) 

Right now, many communities in America are facing a public safety crisis.  Murders in 2015 experienced their largest single-year increase in nearly half a century.  In 2016, murders in large cities continued to climb by double digits.  In many of our biggest cities, 2016 brought an increase in the number of homicides, rapes, assaults and shootings.  In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone, and the rate so far this year has been even higher.  What is going on in Chicago? 

We cannot allow this to continue.  We’ve allowed too many young lives to be claimed -- and you see that, you see that all over -- claimed by gangs, and too many neighborhoods to be crippled by violence and fear.  Sixty percent of murder victims under the age of 22 are African American.  This is a national tragedy, and it requires national action.  This violence must end, and we must all work together to end it.

Whether a child lives in Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, or anywhere in our country, he or she has the right to grow up in safety and in peace.  No one in America should be punished because of the city where he or she is born.  Every child in America should be able to play outside without fear, walk home without danger, and attend a school without being worried about drugs or gangs or violence.

So many lives and so many people have been cut short.  Their potential, their life has been cut short.  So much potential has been sidelined.  And so many dreams have been shattered and broken, totally broken.  It’s time to stop the drugs from pouring into our country.  And, by the way, we will do that.  And I will say this:  General, now Secretary, Kelly will be the man to do it, and we will give him a wall.  And it will be a real wall.  (Applause.)  And a lot of things will happen very positively for your cities, your states, believe me.  The wall is getting designed right now.  A lot of people say, oh, oh, Trump was only kidding with the wall.  I wasn’t kidding.  I don’t kid.  I don’t kid.  I watch this, and they say I was kidding.  No, I don’t kid.  I don’t kid about things like that, I can tell you.  No, we will have a wall.  It will be a great wall, and it will do a lot of -- will be a big help.  Just ask Israel about walls.  Do walls work?  Just ask Israel.  They work -- if it’s properly done. 

It’s time to dismantle the gangs terrorizing our citizens, and it’s time to ensure that every young American can be raised in an environment of decency, dignity, love and support.  You have asked for the resources, tools and support you need to get the job done.  We will do whatever we can to help you meet those demands.  That includes a zero tolerance policy for acts of violence against law enforcement.  (Applause.)  We all see what happens.  We all see what happens and what’s been happening to you.  It’s not fair. 

We must protect those who protect us.  The number of officers shot and killed in the line of duty last year increased by 56 percent from the year before.  Last year, in Dallas, police officers were targeted for execution –- think of this.  Who ever heard of this?  They were targeted for execution.  Twelve were shot and five were killed.  These heroic officers died as they lived -– protecting the innocent, rushing into danger, risking their lives for people they did not even know, but for people that they were determined to save.  Hats off to you people.

These slain officers are an eternal monument to all of the men and women who protect our streets and serve our public.  We will not forget them, and we will not forget all of the others who made that final sacrifice in the line of duty.

God has blessed our nation to put these heroes among us.  Those who serve in law enforcement work long hours.  You work long hours.  I know so many sheriffs, so many chiefs, so many police who work long hours and dangerous hours, oftentimes in difficult conditions and for not that much pay relative to what you’re doing.  They do it because they care. 

We must work with them, not against them.  They’re working against you.  For many years they’ve been working against you.  We must support them, not undermine them.  And instead of division and disunity -- and which is so much disunity -- we must build bridges of partnership and of trust.  Those who demonize law enforcement or who use the actions of a few to discredit the service of many are hurting the very people they say that they want to help.  When policing is reduced, crime is increased, and our poorest citizens suffer the most.  And I see it all the time.  When the number of police goes down, crime goes up.

To build needed trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve, it is not enough for us to merely talk to each other.  We must listen to each other.  All of us share the view that those in uniform must be held to the highest possible standard of conduct -- so important. 

You're the role models to young Americans all across this country, many of whom want to go into law enforcement, many of whom want to be a sheriff or a police chief, many of whom -- they have great respect for you.  Tremendous respect.  You don't even realize it, but I will tell you, they have great respect and admiration for the people in this room and the people that you represent.  And don't let anyone ever tell you different.  Don't let the dishonest media try and convince you that it's different than that, because it's not.  (Applause.)

That is why our commitment to law and law enforcement also includes ensuring that we are giving departments the resources they need to train, recruit and retain talent.  As part of our commitment to safe communities, we will also work to address the mental health crisis.  Prisons should not be a substitute for treatment.  We will fight to increase access to life-saving treatment to battle the addiction to drugs, which is afflicting our nation like never ever before -- ever.  (Applause.)

I've been here two weeks.  I've met a lot of law enforcement officials.  Yesterday, I brought them into the Oval Office.  I asked a group, what impact do drugs have in terms of a percentage on crime?  They said, 75 to 80 percent.  That's pretty sad.  We're going to stop the drugs from pouring in.  We're going to stop those drugs from poisoning our youth, from poisoning our people.  We're going to be ruthless in that fight.  We have no choice.  (Applause.)

And we're going to take that fight to the drug cartels and work to liberate our communities from their terrible grip of violence.  You have the power and knowledge to tell General Kelly -- now Secretary Kelly -- who the illegal immigrant gang members are.  Now, you have that power because you know them, you're there, you're local.  You know the illegals, you know them by their first name, you know them by their nicknames.  You have that power.  The federal government can never be that precise.  But you're in the neighborhoods -- you know the bad ones, you know the good ones. 

I want you to turn in the bad ones.  Call Secretary Kelly's representatives and we'll get them out of our country and bring them back where they came from, and we'll do it fast.  You have to call up the federal government, Homeland Security, because so much of the problems -- you look at Chicago and you look at other places.  So many of the problems are caused by gang members, many of whom are not even legally in our country.
 

And we will work with you on the frontlines to keep America safe from terrorism, which is what I began this with.  Terrorism -- a tremendous threat, far greater than people in our country understand.  Believe me.  I've learned a lot in the last two weeks.  And terrorism is a far greater threat than the people of our country understand.  But we're going to take care of it.  We're going to win.  We're going to take care of it, folks.

Let today be the beginning of a great national partnership.  Let today serve as a great call to action.  And let this moment represent a new beginning in relations between law enforcement and our communities.  I want you to know the American public totally stands with you.  I want you to know the American people support you.  I want you to know how proud we are, truly proud, to know you. 

We applaud your efforts.  We thank you for your service.  And we promise that you will always find an open door at the White House -- an open invitation to our great cops and sheriffs nationwide.  They're great people.  You are great people.

Thank you.  God bless you.  And God bless America.  Thank you very much.  Thank you.  (Applause.)
