El Paso mayor denies Trump’s claim that fence helped lower crime

El Paso’s Republican mayor Dee Margo says that President Trump’s claim that his city’s law and order was turned around by building a fence is “not factually correct”. In his State of the Union speech last week, Donald Trump said El Paso used to have extremely high rates of violent crime until a border fence was constructed in 2008.

CrossTalk on U.S. foreign policy: Mixed signals

Donald Trump’s second State of the Union address was conspicuously light when it came to foreign policy. Why was this? Was his aim to avoid disappointing his base while at the same time wishing not to spar with the Deep State? Are these mixed signals an elaborate strategy or an indication of indecisiveness?

CrossTalking with Brian Becker, John Sitilides, and Lew Rockwell.

Trump’s Biggest Enemy In The Courts Gave The Spanish State Of The Union Response (HBO)

Xavier Becerra, the attorney general of California, was an obvious choice to deliver the Democratic Party’s Spanish-language response to the State of the Union address. He’s the child of Mexican immigrants. He represented a heavily Latino district in Los Angeles during his 24 years in congress.

And as attorney general of the most populous state in the union, Becerra has already sued the Trump administration 45 times to block some of its biggest moves on healthcare, the environment, and, most importantly, immigration.

Trump’s address — in spite of its gestures toward reconciliation — repeated the same message on immigration he’s been delivering since his campaign. That set Becerra up to draw a sharp contrast between Trump and the Democrats for the potential Latino voters watching live on Telemundo and Univision.

“Tonight was supposed to be about convincing us that, from here on out, the deceit and dysfunction would stop, and that cooperation would begin,” Becerra said in his speech. “What we heard was the same tired refrain of building walls.”

But distinguishing the Democratic Party from Trump “isn’t tough,” as Becerra told VICE News. Much harder is reconciling the profound divisions that exist on immigration within the Democratic party — between a newly ascendant left wing that’s turned “Abolish ICE” into a slogan, and an establishment that has for decades played an active role in dramatically expanding the immigration enforcement system.

Analysis: Trump will get post SOTU bump with base

President Donald Trump’s second State of the Union address was light on policy and heavy on calls for common ground. And while reviews of the speech tend to fall along party lines, Trump likely did what he needed to get a bump with his base. (Feb. 6)

8 Takeaways From Trump’s 2019 State Of The Union

President Trump delivered his second State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night. Initially scheduled for last month, his speech was postponed because of the partial government shutdown — the repercussion for his demand that Congress pay for a wall along the US-Mexico border.  Trump’s main points focused on unemployment, immigration and border control, healthcare, and foreign policy. If you missed his speech, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know in the video above.

Following is a transcript of the video.

President Trump: Members of Congress: the State of our Union is strong.

[“USA” chants]

Victory is not winning for our party. Victory is winning for our country.

1. More Jobs

In just over 2 years since the election, we have launched an unprecedented economic boom. We have created 5.3 million new jobs and importantly added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs…Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in over half a century. More people are working now than at any time in the history of our country — 157 million at work. 

2. More women in the workforce

All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before. 

3. Prison sentencing reform

My Administration worked closely with members of both parties to sign the First Step Act into law. This legislation reformed sentencing laws that have wrongly and disproportionately harmed the African-American community. The First Step Act gives non-violent offenders the chance to re-enter society as productive, law-abiding citizens.

4. Immigration and border control

Now is the time for Congress to show the world that America is committed to ending illegal immigration and putting the ruthless coyotes, cartels, drug dealers, and human traffickers out of business.As we speak, large, organized caravans are on the march to the United States. We have just heard that Mexican cities, in order to remove the illegal immigrants from their communities, are getting trucks and buses to bring them up to our country in areas where there is little border protection. I have ordered another 3,750 troops to our southern border to prepare for this tremendous onslaught. I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.

5. Lower drug costs

In 2018, drug prices experienced their single largest decline in 46 years. It is unacceptable that Americans pay vastly more than people in other countries for the exact same drugs, often made in the exact same place. I am asking Congress to pass legislation that finally takes on the problem of global freeloading and delivers fairness and price transparency for American patients, finally.

6. Prohibit late-term abortion

To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.

7. Eliminate HIV/AIDS by 2030

My budget will ask Democrats and Republicans to make the needed commitment to eliminate the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years. We have made incredible strides, incredible. 

8. North Korean relations

If I had not been elected President of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea. Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong Un is a good one. Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27th and 28th in Vietnam.

Ex-Trump worker hopes to ‘speak for all’ undocumented immigrants

Victorina Morales, the undocumented immigrant who worked as a cleaner at Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey, speaks to AFP ahead of attending the president’s State of the Union address. The 45 year old immigrant from Guatemala accepted an invitation from a Democratic member of Congress. She says she hopes to be the voice of all undocumented immigrants afraid to speak.
