With President Trump signing executive orders to build the wall on the southern border and threatening sanctuary cities with a funding penalty, all hell is breaking loose.

Many on the left simply do not want immigration law enforced.

The cold truth is they want anarchy, they believe that everyone has a right to come to America for whatever reason.

Some of these people advocate open borders with no restrictions on traveling to the USA.

Some of them believe that the poor must be accommodated in every way.

And some people who support illegal immigration do so for political reasons.

Logic dictates if America's immigration laws are unfair, then Congress should change them.

But right now Talking Points believes what we have is reasonable.

You apply to come to the USA, and your application is either accepted or rejected.

If you simply show up with no papers, you are violating U.S. law.

Yet Governor Jerry Brown of California, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, just to name a few, say they will not obey immigration law.

That of course is a violation of their sworn oath to uphold the laws of the United States.

So there really isn't any legal argument; it's all about theory and politics.

President Trump campaigned on ending the illegal alien madness.

So let's take a look at what he wants to do:

Right now there are 654 miles of fencing along the southern border with Mexico.

That leaves 1,300 miles of border without a barrier.

Mr. Trump is going to expand the fencing and rename it a wall.

It will not be constant -- there are areas that don't need barriers, natural barriers prevent crossings.

The primary reason a wall is needed is that tons of narcotics are being smuggled from Mexico into the USA.

That is a scandal and Mexico will not stop it blaming the U.S. for drug consumption.

But it is clear that Mexico is a passive partner in the drug and people smuggling industries, therefore they should pay for at least part of the wall.

I mean here's how bad it is.

The Mexican drug lord el Chapo is here in New York City right now because the Mexican government cannot put him on trial.

He escaped twice from Mexican prisons -- the most notorious criminal in the country escaped twice.

The sad truth is Mexico is corrupt and cannot stop the drug cartels from doing their evil business, and will not stop millions of migrants from crossing its territory and entering into the USA illegally.

Again, that's Mexico's fault.

So if a barrier stops some of the drugs, why would anybody object to that?

And today President Trump suggested Mexico may have to pay a 20% tariff to fund the wall.

This is all way too much for the Mexican president.

He cancelled a meeting next week with President Trump, who addressed the issue this afternoon.

TRUMP: “The president of Mexico and myself have agreed to cancel our planned meeting schedule for next week.  Unless Mexico is going to treat the United States fairly, with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless, and I want to go a different route.”

It really doesn't matter who cancelled what.  What does matter is that last year 560 pounds of heroin were confiscated on the Mexican border, five hundred sixty pounds.

And that's just a fraction of what got through.

As you may know 50,000 people died in 2015 from drug overdoses.

By the way, more than 8,000 pounds of methamphetamine was confiscated at the border.

So again, if you object to a wall designed to prevent drugs from being smuggled here, what is your rationale?

Now on to sanctuary cities. 

It is clear that President Trump is not ready to deport illegal aliens who do not commit crimes in the USA.

He said that again yesterday; it is criminal aliens that are being targeted by Homeland Security.

The left-wing politicians know that, but lie about it.

BILL DE BLASIO (D), NEW YORK CITY MAYOR: “New York City is half a million undocumented people. We want them to come forward and work with the police, if they see a crime, if they're victim of crime.  If they believe by talking to a police officer they will get deported and be torn apart from their family, they’re not going to work with police.”

Mayor de Blasio, an uber leftist, completely avoids the criminal alien subject, always trying to deflect the sanctuary city situation on to house painters and chambermaids.

So dishonest.

In Chicago where the mayor cannot control gang violence, he remains defiant on criminal aliens:

RAHM EMANUEL (D), CHICAGO MAYOR: “We’re gonna stay a sanctuary city. ((EDIT)) There is no stranger among us. We welcome people, whether you're from Poland or Pakistan, whether you're from Ireland or India or Israel and whether you're from Mexico or Moldova, where my grandfather came from, you are welcome in Chicago as you pursue the American Dream.”

So you are welcome in Chicago even if you are criminal alien because sanctuary city policies do not flag undocumented criminals for federal authorities.

That's the crux of this matter, that irresponsible politicians like de Blasio and Emanuel put their own people at risk for political gain.

Neither man would be in office without pandering to people who have recently come to this country and who may not understand the danger of sanctuary cities.

It is political demagoguing at its worst, but it has some support.

NEW YORK CITY PROTESTOR: “You are xenophobic. You are homophobic. You are pitting against Americans against Americans. And fair-minded, smart Americans are not going to stand by passively and let you pit us against one another.”

This week there were demonstrations in places like New York City, Washington, San Francisco and Denver yesterday, protesting against President Trump's executive orders.

But again, what exactly are these people objecting to?

Trying to stop narcotics from coming in here?  Trying to get a handle on illegal aliens who commit crimes?  Are they objecting to that?

Part of Mr. Trump's executive action orders the Homeland Security department to make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens on a weekly basis.

Also, to list jurisdictions that fail to honor federal detainers with respect to undocumented aliens.

The Trump administration wanting the folks – you -- to know the full extent of the problem.

Finally, the Government Accountability Office -- an independent non-partisan agency that works for Congress -- says that in 2015, 22,000 high-risk air travelers were prevented from coming to the USA.

In the same year more than 8,000 known or suspected terrorists tried to get in here but were thwarted.

So if these protesters and these loony mayors think that open borders and lax immigration enforcement are good things, they deserve to be scorned.

Breaking it down, sanctuary cities and counties promote anarchy.

If the left doesn't like immigration law, petition Congress to change it.

If the mayors refuse to obey federal law, President Trump should cut off federal funds immediately.

And that's the memo.
