Tremendous pressure is building, like never before, for the Border Wall and an end to crime cradling Sanctuary Cities. Started the Wall in San Diego, where the people were pushing really hard to get it. They will soon be protected!

Just a month after the US began legal proceedings against California’s “unjust, unfair and unconstitutional policies” with regard to illegal immigrants, President Trump is escalating his tweet-attacks against the “crime-cradling” Sanctuary cities Friday morning, correctly pointing out that “tremendous pressure” is building to end sanctuary city policies once and for all.
Trump also touted his administration’s decision to begin construction on part of his promised border wall near San Diego, an area where Trump was welcomed by crowds of supporters during a recent visit.
The DOJ’s decision to sue the state of California over its sanctuary city laws has inspired several California cities to join the rebellion against the state’s ultra-liberal government.
Citizens the state over are refusing to sit idly by while California Gov. Jerry Brown unlawfully protects illegals in their state. Los Alamitos was the first city to take action, voting 4-1 on March 19 to pass a city ordinance exempting it from SB 54.
That vote set in motion a small movement:
Furthermore, the cities of Aliso Viejo and Buena Park have announced they would join the push against the law.
Earlier this month, the Huntington Beach City Council voted to sue the state over SB 54, which protects illegal immigrants by preventing local law enforcement from cooperating with ICE agents
Border Wall Starts With 14 Mile Wall In San Diego; “Anti-Climbing” Mechanism
Construction has just started on a 14-mile section of President Trump’s new border wall along the Mexico–United States border and will include “anti-climbing plates” to deter illegal border crossings.
Despite many obstacles and strong opposition from Democrats, construction of the wall started near San Diego on Friday, June 01, which is excellent news for his conservative base, in regards to border security heading into the midterm elections this fall.
John Gibbins, a freelance reporter, covering breaking news in San Diego-Baja California region, has taken a photograph of the alleged construction zone.

According to Fox 4 News, the new wall will replace 14-miles of an old, rusted metal barrier that was erected in the early 1990s from Vietnam-era scrap metal. The barrier currently stands 10-feet high, which has done very little to thwart illegal border-crossings. The new wall is a bollard-style design measuring 18 to 30 feet tall and includes “anti-climbing plates” welded on the upper half of the structure. Fox 4 News indicates that construction workers have broken ground about a half mile from the Pacific Ocean in Border Field State Park in San Diego, California, and eventually move east to the bottom of Otay Mountain in East County.
Europe’s Mass Migration Becomes New Norm As Issue Persist
“Migration is a priority for all of us here” said EU Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, Dimitris Avramopoulos, at the recent Fifth Euro-African Ministerial Conference on Migration and Development in Marrakesh at the beginning of May. The conference is a part of the Euro-African Ministerial Dialogue on Migration and Development (also known as the Rabat Process).
The Euro-African Ministerial Dialogue on Migration and Development was founded in 2006 to contain migration from Africa into Europe, specifically, at the time, the increase of migrants crossing the Strait of Gibraltar from Morocco into Spain and from there into the rest of Europe.

The 2006 Rabat Declaration established that the purpose of the process was to
“offer a … response to the fundamental issue of controlling migratory flows … the management of migration between Africa and Europe must be carried out within the context of a partnership to combat poverty and promote sustainable development and co-development”.
In other words, Europe would fund development and anti-poverty measures in Africa, so that Africans would stop looking for a better future in Europe. Almost 60 European and African countries, as well as the European Commission (EC) and the Commission of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) are involved in the Rabat Process.
No-Go Zones In France | No Plans For ‘Rehabilitation’
President Emmanuel Macron has substantially scaled back plans to rehabilitate France’s banlieues — poverty-ridden and crime-infested neighborhoods with large Muslim populations — and has instead called on local mayors and civil society groups to find solutions at the grassroots level.
The policy reversal follows weeks of internal debate about whether a top-down or bottom-up approach is the best way to improve life in the troubled banlieues, which are breeding grounds for Islamic fundamentalism and are often referred to as no-go zones because of the dangerous conditions there for police and other representatives of state authority.
In a much-anticipated speech at the Élysée Palace on May 22, Macron announced only modest, non-budgeted, initiatives for the banlieues, including a plan to hire more police officers, a crackdown on drug trafficking and a corporate internship program for underprivileged youths.
Addressing 600 guests, including lawmakers, entrepreneurs, community leaders and residents, Macron said that he would not be announcing yet another “Marshall Plan for the suburbs,” as a 2008 plan for urban renewal was called, because at least ten previous such strategies all have failed:
“I will not announce a city plan or a suburban plan because this strategy is as old as me. The first plan was presented by [former French prime minister] Raymond Barre about the time I was born… we are at the end of what this method is able to produce.”
