Trump Right to Send Fed Law Officers to Chicago and Other Cities to Fight Crime and Save Lives

Tom Homan: Trump right to send fed law officers to Chicago and ...

“By deploying additional federal agents and other resources to communities under attack by violent criminals, the president is carrying out his duty to keep the American people safe,” writes Tom Homan, former Acting Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, for Fox News.

“The only people who should be upset by the president’s actions are the criminals he wants to stop from victimizing innocent men, women and children.”

I have worked in law enforcement for six presidents, and none has done as much as President Trump to protect the American people from dangerous criminals and to support our brave law enforcement officers.

The president understands that nearly all law enforcement officers do an outstanding job. He knows it would be terribly harmful to defund or abolish law enforcement agencies because of the actions of the tiny minority of officers who engage in brutality and criminal conduct.

And the president knows that instead of defunding police, communities need to fire and if warranted prosecute bad cops for wrongful actions, but support the vast majority of good cops. Far greater numbers of innocent people are brutalized and killed by criminals than by police.

Contrary to the claims of his left-wing critics, President Trump does not want to prevent lawful peaceful protests, which are protected by our Constitution.

The president wants to stop lawbreakers who violently attack and sometimes kill people, burn buildings, loot stores, and commit other crimes. These actions are not a form of protest. It is heartbreaking to see so many innocent people — including children — lose their lives to dangerous criminals in communities across our nation.

By deploying additional federal agents and other resources to communities under attack by violent criminals, the president is carrying out his duty to keep the American people safe.

Note that I said federal agents. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other far-left politicians and media outlets call these federal law enforcements officers “troops” or even “storm troopers,” an insulting name that recalls the forces of Nazi Germany.

It’s clear to me that the recent surge in violence is the result of poor leadership from far-left politicians who have failed to protect their communities and who now endorse defunding the police. They have failed on their No. 1 responsibility and duty — to protect lives and property.

Violent crime has drastically increased in major cities led by Democratic officials. That is a fact, not an opinion.

For example, during the last weekend of May, Chicago saw its most violent weekend, with 25 people killed and another 85 shot. As of July 19, 414 people have been murdered in Chicago this year — a roughly 50 percent increase from this time last year.

In New York City, where the mayor has led the anti-police movement and the city has slashed the police budget by a stunning $1 billion, gun violence recently surged a horrific 277 percent compared to last year.

In Minneapolis, where the City Council voted to dismantle the police department, the number of homicides is expected to hit an all-time high.

Instead of condemning the onslaught of violent crime destroying our cities, Democrats choose to ignore, justify, or condone it. While the radical left wants to defund our police, President Trump wants to give them the support they need to keep our communities safe. That action is in our national interest and will benefit every law-abiding American.

Vandals, Marxists, Antifa lay siege to Portland, while Dems decry federal intervention

“After an effort by the legacy media to disappear the story, the nation is finally hearing about the mayhem and violence overtaking Portland, Oregon . . . This story is now only being covered because President Trump realized local Democratic leadership had no real interest in ending the chaos and sent in federal law enforcement to establish the law and order every American wants and deserves,” Tammy Bruce writes in The Washington Times.

But in today’s upside-down world, the federal government coming to the aid of a city under siege has enraged Democratic leadership. That alone should tell you everything you need to know about that party and its malevolent politics, but it’s the reaction and comment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that has proven the most revealing and shocking about the attitude of the perfunctory leader of the party.

Responding to the arrival and actions of federal law enforcement agents in Portland, Mrs. Pelosi tweeted, “Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protesters and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti. These are not the actions of a democratic republic. @DHSgov’s actions in Portland undermine its mission. Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.”

And exactly who are these people Mrs. Pelosi is casting as the same as Hitler’s most notorious and murderous terrorist organization? They are fellow Americans who dared to make a commitment to this country by joining law enforcement. They are our brothers, sisters, husbands, wives and best friends. They are our neighbors and friends. Yet Mrs. Pelosi, with a grotesque excitement, easily declared them Nazis and kidnappers.

She would not have said this as a lark. Everything she and the Democrats do is contemplated, assessed, then implemented. The smearing of Americans in law enforcement is something they decided was a good thing to do.

The Daily Wire reported the team dispatched to Portland to quell the daily riots are a DHS “elite unit of law enforcement operators” with authority under Mr. Trump’s Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal Violence.

“The New York Times confirmed an earlier report that identified the Border Patrol Tactical Unit, or BORTAC,” as that elite unit, reported the website.

In response to the Democrats decrying the assistance in putting down the riots, Mr. Trump tweeted this weekend, “We are trying to help Portland, not hurt it. Their leadership has, for months, lost control of the anarchists and agitators. They are missing in action. We must protect Federal property, AND OUR PEOPLE. These were not merely protesters, these are the real deal!”

Speaking to the press, the president also made clear he has no intention of allowing other great American cities to become victim of either frightened, incompetent or malevolent Democratic leadership.

“We’re not going to let New York and Chicago and Philadelphia and Detroit and Baltimore and all of these — Oakland is a mess. We’re not going to let this happen in our country. All run by liberal Democrats,” he tweeted.

After Mr. Trump’s comments, the Chicago Tribune reported that the city will see the deployment of 150 federal agents in light of the slaughter inflicted upon Chicagoans every weekend.

“The Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, agents are set to assist other federal law enforcement and Chicago police in crime-fighting efforts, according to sources familiar with the matter, though a specific plan on what the agents will be doing — and what their limits would be — had not been made public,” according to the Tribune.

Great American Outdoors Act will deliver critical investments to our national parks, forests

A flock of birds in a perfect V formation flew over Arlington Cemetery as the Army Bugler played Taps at John Dingell’s interment. It was a perfect moment and final goodbye to a man who loved the great outdoors and hunting as much as he was proud to be an American who served his country. John spent a summer as Park Ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park. And had he been hired full time, he would have never run for Congress.

Congress passed the Great American Outdoors Act yesterday, which will achieve “the twin goals of protecting America’s crown jewels and repairing deteriorating infrastructure . . . [it] passed both the Senate and the House with wide bipartisan support and President Trump specifically requested the bill for his signature,” Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) writes in The Hill.

President Theodore Roosevelt, grandfather to America’s system of National Parks, said: “This country will not be a permanently good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a reasonably good place for all of us to live in.”

President Roosevelt, Chairman Dingell, and Congressman Young: we admire you for your leadership, and are finally delivering critical investments in our national parks, forests, state and local parks, wildlife refuges, and public lands for the betterment of American wildlife and people.

Ivanka Trump visited a childcare center in Colorado where she touted the Trump Administration’s policies regarding working families.

Today @SenGardner and I heard impactful stories firsthand from parents and providers at Bright Beginnings childcare facility (& PPP recipient) in Colorado.

Prior to Covid nearly 12 Million children under the age of 5 were in daycare.

The safe reopening of childcare facilities are an essential step in our country‘s return to prosperity.

Over the past 3 years the Trump Administration has fought to vastly expand options for working Americans, surpassing all expectations and delivering major wins for families! ⬇️

✔️Doubled the Child Tax Credit, reaching 40 Million American families
✔️POTUS signed into the law the largest EVER increase in funding for childcare support for governors
✔️Most recently POTUS championed infusing $3.5 Billion in COVID relief to help families and 1st responders access childcare
✔️1st National Paid Leave Credit
✔️Paid Leave for USG workforce
And much more!

The Trump Administration will always fight for hardworking American families! 🇺🇸

How the Trump administration wins on life and religious liberty

How the Trump administration wins on life and religious liberty

The “Supreme Court decision in Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania was a major victory for freedom of religion and conscience in the United States . . . It was just the latest example of aggressive work by President Trump’s Department of Health and Human Services to protect First Amendment freedoms and then win on those issues in court,” Health & Human Services Secretary Alex Azar writes in the Washington Examiner.

From day one of the Trump administration, HHS has made it a priority to protect life and protect the rights of faith and conscience — and we are delivering. The dispute in the Little Sisters case arose out of the Obama administration’s regulation under the Affordable Care Act, which mandated that most employer-provided health insurance include all Food and Drug Administration-approved methods of contraception. The contraceptive mandate exempted a subset of religious groups, such as churches, but required compliance from most other religious organizations.

Nonexempt religious groups, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, were required to comply with the mandate by a so-called “accommodation,” requiring them to sign a document authorizing their insurer to provide contraceptive coverage. In other words, they still had to violate their conscience.

When Trump took office the following January, HHS began working on a way to ensure the contraceptive mandate did not unlawfully burden religious exercise. Our solution was straightforward: We broadened the original religious exemption and created a new exemption for employers with moral-based objections — still a tiny fraction of America’s employers.

Last week, in a 7–2 decision, the Supreme Court upheld the Trump administration’s actions. The court recognized that HHS followed the right procedures and had the legal authority to do what we did. It is remarkable that activists and activist judges forced this simple issue all the way up to our highest court.

Fighting to ensure nuns can carry out their work without having to cover contraception isn’t the only place in which the Trump administration’s efforts have stoked needlessly fierce legal battles. We are fighting similar battles over the implementation of Title X, which provides government funding for family planning services.

Last year, HHS implemented a new rule that no longer permitted Title X family planning services, funded with taxpayer dollars, to occur at the same location where abortions are provided as a method of family planning. That’s a commonsense step to enforce Congress’s existing requirement that no Title X funds be used in programs in which abortion is a method of family planning.

The Title X rule also attracted a torrent of lawsuits but not particularly successful ones. Our Title X rule has now won victories twice at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, notoriously no friend to the Trump administration, first before a three-judge panel and then before a larger, en banc panel. The 9th Circuit actually had to lift several orders put in place by lower courts that attempted to block the implementation of the Title X rule nationwide.

The opposition to the commonsense implementation of the law Congress enacted is dizzying. A number of grantees dropped out of the Title X program altogether in protest (and their funds swiftly awarded to other providers) even as we have added new and important protections to the program for serving vulnerable women and children, such as strengthened requirements around reporting sexual abuse, molestation, and human trafficking.

One of the most important steps Trump has taken to protect religious freedom and the right to life is appointing hundreds of judges — more than 200 at the latest count — who faithfully interpret the Constitution as written. But the Little Sisters decision won support even from Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer.

Every day at HHS, we work to protect the life and conscience rights of all people who need or provide healthcare and social services. It is a department-wide mission, and it’s just as important during health emergencies, such as the one we’re experiencing now.

During the coronavirus pandemic, HHS’s Office for Civil Rights has been taking action to ensure that states and healthcare providers do not discriminate on the basis of disability in the allocation of medical care. We’ve already had five states remove such discriminatory policies from their triage guidelines as a result of our work.

Efforts to protect life at all stages for all people don’t always grab headlines in the way Supreme Court decisions do. But behind every court victory and every successful administrative reform are dedicated people working to protect our lives and freedoms as promised by the Constitution and protected by our laws.

That dedicated work is why we can say Trump is the most pro-life, pro-religious liberty president in American history.
