I remember 9/11/2001 just like it was yesterday. I was in Phoenix at the time and my hubby was working for the Supreme Court there. The shock and disbelief we felt, followed by anger and sadness were simply immeasurable. After all these years, I am still furious that we have not hit back the way I thought we should at the time.
But my grief was nothing compared to the families who lost those they love on that sunny, Tuesday morning in New York, at the Pentagon in Virginia and in a field in Pennsylvania. At yesterday’s memorial for the almost 3,000 Americans we lost that day, the son of a 9/11 victim went off his memorial script and sent a chilling message to Democrats.
Nicholas Haros, who lost his mother in the attacks, let the Dems and the members of the media really have it for using the terror attacks as “political theater” on Tuesday. I share his anger over it, as do many, many Americans. Haros was one of the volunteers reading the names of victims at Ground Zero in Tuesday’s memorial.
After reading his list of names aloud in remembrance and paying tribute to his late mother, Haros proceeded to rip into Democrats Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Cory Booker and a member of the media for using the 9/11 victims as “props.” Good for him, because that’s exactly what they are doing.
“And one more thing, if I may,” Haros said as the music started that indicated his talking time was about to end. Suddenly everyone was all ears and at attention.
“This year, a representative of the House referred to our loss as just another incident. This year, a network commentator said the president’s performance in Helsinki was a traitorous act as was 9/11,” Haros asserted. “And last week, a senator attacked a Supreme Court nominee and called him a racist for alleged comments after 9/11.”
“Stop. Stop,” he begged. “Please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater. Their lives, sacrifices, and deaths are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize them or us. It hurts.” Yes, it hurts like a knife through your heart and these political opportunists should be deeply ashamed of themselves.
“To my mom and to all of you and your loved ones, never forget,” Haros concluded to thunderous applause. I never have and never will forget and his words brought tears to my eyes.
In a June press conference on Capitol Hill, Pelosi referred to the 9/11 terrorist attack as an ‘incident’. Talk about cold. She was referring to border enforcement policy when she made the tasteless comment.
“When we had the 9/11 incident,” Pelosi said, “the commission was formed and they made the recommendations. They made recommendations to protect America, and some were about our borders, and Republicans would not take them up.” This woman has no sense of decorum whatsoever and she has forgotten altogether how to tell the truth anymore.
Haros also referred to Cory Booker’s lies about SCOTUS nominee Bret Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh worked in the Bush White House at that time.
From The Daily Mail:
“Booker, in his ‘Spartacus’ moment that was later mocked, said last week he would release confidential documents the Senate Judiciary Committee received on the nominee, which turned out to have already been made public.
“One of those documents was a 2002 Kavanaugh email with the subject line ‘racial profiling’ that includes internal White House discussions about whether airport security and other law enforcement should strive for a ‘race-neutral’ system in the wake of the September 11 attacks.
“Kavanaugh had referenced a possible interim policy and wrote ‘the people (such as you and I) who generally favor effective security measures that are race-neutral DO need to grapple – and grapple now – with the interim question of what to do before a truly effective and comprehensive race-neutral system is implemented.'”
On that day 17 years ago, we all swore: “Never again!” We linked arms and were one as a nation. Since that time we have become the most divided we have been since the Civil War. And we are so politically correct that we have hamstrung ourselves and can’t even name who the enemy really is. Not to mention fighting the enemies within that we face here at home – you just heard Haros name a couple of them.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
