CA Gov. Gavin Newsom Visits Highly Secure Part of Border to Declare ‘No National Emergency’ Here

Ultra-liberal California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) visited the San Ysidro Port of Entry, part of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection-designated San Diego sector, on Thursday.

Standing next to border fencing, he declared in the caption of a video he shared on Twitter that at San Ysidro, “the busiest border crossing in the Hemisphere,” he saw “no national emergency.”

You don’t say? It’s probably because it is one of the most heavily secured parts of the border due to the sheer numbers of people who travel across every day.

Even more, the troops recently deployed to the border helped install additional hardening infrastructure at the port of entry, including concrete barriers and razor wire wrapped around the border wall. That might be a contributing factor.

Gov. Newsom attempted to use in his argument against President Trump's national emergency declaration that San Ysidro is “a region of economic vibrancy – of trade and commerce,” and, yes, that is true. San Ysidro is one of the busiest U.S. ports of entry, with over 100,000 people who cross every day. But in terms of how that was made possible, he should give credit where credit is due.

And he even pointed out in the video, legal immigration is key to that “economic vibrancy”:

I’m trying to highlight a different story as it relates to what’s going on here between Mexico and the United States and the economic vibrancy that is demonstrable here at the border ... American citizens going into Mexico. Mexican citizens coming into California – legally – on a daily basis. It is a very different story than the one in Washington.

The issue isn't legal immigration, so it doesn’t sound much different, really.
