President Donald Trump is dealing with historic levels of opposition.
No President in history has had to face so much obstruction.
And now Trump is furious after an Obama-era judge smacked him with news that changes everything.
The biggest challenge of Trump’s presidency is the border.
Currently, there are historic levels of illegal immigrants flooding over the border.
And nobody besides Trump and his allies are interested in doing anything about it.
In fact, the Democrat Party wants more illegal immigration.
They are actively downplaying the problem, claiming that the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants that come over the border every month are simply peaceful “asylum seekers.”
This is despite the fact that there has never been a year in U.S. history that has admitted even close to that amount of asylum seekers.
So, in a move that shouldn’t be highly controversial, President Trump is working on limiting the number of refugees allowed in the country every year.
Limiting that number will remove a lot of the incentive for illegal immigration.
But a Federal Judge who was appointed by Barack Obama shut Trump down with a ruling stating that Trump’s rule cannot go into effect.
“The right to determine whether a particular group of applicants is categorically barred from eligibility for asylum is conferred on Congress,” U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar’s order reads.
Tigar goes on to explain in more detail how he believes that it is Congress’s job to make this decision, and not Trump’s:
“Congress has empowered the attorney general to establish additional limitations and conditions by regulation, but only if such regulations are consistent with the existing immigration laws passed by Congress. This new rule is likely invalid because it is inconsistent with the existing asylum laws.”
Trump’s position is not a highly controversial one.
In fact, former President Barack Obama’s former Director of the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, largely mirrored Trump’s position in an interview with The Hill earlier this year.
“As long as they have exhausted their proceedings, as long as they’ve received due process, and they’ve had a fair and full opportunity to adjudicate their asylum claim, they should be deported if they are ordered deported,” Johnson said.
This is not the current position of the Democrat Party, who have become full-on obstructionists when it comes to illegal immigration.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is even working with left-wing figures across the country to prevent deportations by teaching illegal immigrants how to evade federal authorities.
So the opposition to Trump’s policies on illegal immigration has nothing to do with the substance of what he believes.
In reality, their opposition is out of necessity.
The Democrat Party has gone so far left that believing in having a border at all is no longer within their messaging.
Any Democrat who says anything reasonable about the border will get destroyed in the left-wing media.
But most of America understands just how crazy Democrats have become.
So 2020 will almost certainly be a big win for Donald Trump.
Do you think Trump will win re-election in 2020?
