Cory Booker Doesn’t Care About The Law; Chooses Illegals Over Law Enforcement

Admittedly we have a lot of problems with US Senator Cory Booker. We never voted for him and never will. Recently, on Twitter, he gave us one more reason to despise him.

Bottom line – Cory Booker, like so many other Democrats has decided to side with illegal aliens over law enforcement.

As you know President Trump had announced plans to deport illegal aliens who went through the legal process and received deportation orders. The President later announced a delay in the “Illegal Immigration Removal Process” at the request of the Democrats.

Frankly, we believe if these folks already have received deportation orders they should be gone. Make no mistake, the deportation of illegal aliens was, and is, about the “rule of law. In fact, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Mark Morgan told ABC News in part:

But Morgan told ABC News Live's Devin Dwyer that the "integrity" of the system was in question and that families, in particular, needed to be convinced to stop trying to come to the U.S. illegally.

"This is not about fear," Morgan said. "No one is instilling fear in anyone. This is about the rule of law and maintaining the integrity of the system."

Booker, of course, doesn’t care about the “rule of law.” He re-tweeted a message from the organization United We Stand that encouraged illegal aliens not to cooperate with law enforcement.  The message went as far as to say “ICE lies.”

As if re-tweeting that message wasn’t bad enough, Booker felt it necessary to claim the Trump administration wants to strip folks of their humanity:

No, Senator, we want legal immigration! The folks who were to be deported have already received deportation orders. In other words, they were found to be in violation of the law. Deporting people living in the country illegally has nothing to do with stripping anyone of their humanity. It does have everything to do with enforcing the rule of law.

PRESS RELEASE: Flanagan Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge

GOP US Senate candidate Tricia Flanagan announced today that she signed Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Her campaign’s press release follows:

LAWRENCEVILLE – Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Tricia Flanagan, announced today that she has signed Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) “Taxpayer Protection Pledge.” Flanagan met ATR President Grover Norquist last week at a meeting of the New Jersey Tuesday Group in Parsippany.

“Signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge was a no brainer. It clearly states that I will oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses; and that I will oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates,” Tricia Flanagan said. “Clearly, as the tax and spend liberal he has become, Cory Booker would never agree to sign a pledge promising not to increase taxes.

“This is one more example of how Cory Booker and I differ, he’s so busy pandering to the radical left in his vanity presidential campaign that he can’t say no to higher taxes. As a mom, I know how to say no. Any mom will tell you, it’s not always easy to say no, but in Washington, unlike Cory Booker, I will say no to higher taxes.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Doesn’t Know what Life Is Really Like On The Border And Doesn’t Care

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

When we started the Bob & Steve Show we made a decision to focus mainly on South Jersey, occasionally North Jersey and pretty much leave national politics alone. Well, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) pissed me off with her moronic remarks about concentration camps on our nation’s southern border.

It pisses me off because I used to live in a border state, I have many friends who live in New Mexico along the southern border with Mexico. Bob and I did three radio shows back in January and February (episodes 28, 29 and 30) with folks who live along the border.

Not once did they mention anything about any kind of camps. Quite the opposite, they told stories of drugs stashed on their farms and ranches by cartel drug mules, property damaged in retaliation for calling Border Patrol after the drugs were found on their properties, illegal immigrants breaking into their homes, killing their livestock and even the kidnapping of an employee.

The folks I stay in touch with living in New Mexico tell me things aren’t getting much better. We’ve even heard of folks being turned away from a local clinic in Hidalgo County because they were too busy treating illegal border crossers. There is no hospital in the county.

Trust me, there is no concentration camp or anything of the sort in Hidalgo County, NM nor neighboring Luna County.

AOC has no clue what she’s talking about because, like every other Democrat who has complained about the crisis on our southern border, she has not talked to one single person I know. She has not visited Hidalgo County where the only thing separating the two countries is a three-strand barbed wire fence. In some places there is nothing.

Imagine being out working your family’s ranch and having Border Patrol pull up and ask permission to search an old bunkhouse and, after granting permission, the Border Patrol finding 12 men with backpacks loaded with drugs and carrying AK47's. That’s what life is really like along our southern border. You can read about it in a guest post from a border resident who appeared on our show.

The fact is life along the border with Mexico can be a very dangerous place. Perhaps that’s why our guest blogger wrote, “we all carry guns.”

AOC doesn’t care! In fact, she is standing by her concentration camp remarks and refuses to apologize.

Why let facts get in the way!

And to our friends in NM, stay safe and keep carrying your guns.
