LAREDO, Texas (The Adobo Chronicles) – Emboldened by the recent ruling of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court which upheld a lower court decision blocking the implementation of a series of President Obama’s executive orders on immigration, Texas today announced that it will build a wall around the state’s entire perimeter.
A three-judge panel ruled against the Obama administration on a 2-1 vote in Texas v. United States, upholding a lower court’s injunction against two programs. Obama created one of the programs, called Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, or DAPA, and expanded another, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA in a unilateral effort to reshape the U.S. immigration system after the 2014 midterm elections.
Governor Greg Abbott said that the “great wall” will not only prevent Mexicans from illegally crossing the border but also keep undocumented immigrants already in the U.S. out of the Lone Star state. “This will mean millions of dollars in savings on the part of the state government which otherwise would be spent on providing services to undocumented immigrants, including health insurance, food stamps and and housing,” Abbott said.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he fully supports the Texas move and promised to donate $1 Billion of his own money to help in the building of the great wall. He says all he wants in return are giant billboards along the wall with the message: “Built through the generosity of Donald Trump.”
Meanwhile, the Obama administration says it will appeal the Circuit Court’s decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Realizing that he won’t be able to force Mexico to pay for the great wall that he wants to build along the U.S. southern border, Republican presidential candidate and frontrunner Donald Trump has revised his anti-immigration policy proposal.
Trump now wants to sell California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas back to Mexico and use the money to pay for a new U.S. border wall north and east of these states.
Up until 1848, California and its neighboring southwest states were internationally recognized provinces of free Mexico, until the U.S. decided it wanted those provinces, declared war on Mexico and stole them.
“I am a businessman and I make decisions based on what’s good for business,” Trump said. “Americans and Mexicans both will thank me for it. It will finally put to rest America’s dragged-out immigration problem without costing us a cent.”
This new policy could very well be Trump’s ticket to The White House.
LAREDO, Texas (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Every so often, politicians and celebrities are caught in uncompromising situations — in public restrooms.
It is no secret that Republican presidential candidate likes women. That’s why he owns several beauty pageants and has been married three times. But who knew he also likes using women’s public restrooms?
Trump arrived in Texas yesterday to tour the U.S.-Mexico border in Laredo. He tried to be incognito by wearing a white baseball cap to hide his all too familiar faded blond hair as he stepped off his private jet and proceeded to use the international airport’s restroom– the women’s restroom.
It all went without incident until he came out of the restroom to a swarm of television cameras, reporters and photographers.
Asked why he chose to use the women’s bathroom instead of the men’s, Trump simply shrugged his shoulders and said, “I needed to go pee so bad I didn’t realize I entered the women’s bathroom. It was only when I noticed it had stalls but no urinals that I knew I was in the wrong bathroom, but it was too late. I really couldn’t hold it any longer!”
Nothing ever embarrasses Trump, but this incident apparently did.
