It’s always alarming when a story comes out that’s close to home. As we draw closer to the very important midterm election cycle, there’s an issue with which none of us should align. That is the progressive socialist position on open borders, sanctuary states and cities, and abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
Remember the very unfunny leftist comedian, Michelle Wolf, who did the skit comparing our ICE agents to ISIS? As well, we had the private addresses of ICE personnel openly published by a deranged leftist. If you have not voted, remember this.
However, today, I want to share something closer to home for us here in North Texas.
As ICE reported last week:
“A Dallas-area pimp who preyed on teenage girls was sentenced Friday to life in federal prison. This sentence was announced by U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox, Northern District of Texas. This investigation was conducted by the following agencies: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI); the Texas Department of Public Safety; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF); the Shreveport (Louisiana) Police Department; and the FBI.
Allen Nash, 31, was convicted in April of the following charges: sex trafficking children; conspiracy to commit sex trafficking; sex trafficking through force, fraud or coercion; transporting a minor to engage in commercial sex acts; and illegally possessing ammunition after he forced two victims, aged 17 and 19, into the illicit sex trade in the fall of 2014.
During his four-day trial, victims told jurors that Nash lured them into engaging in commercial sex acts by promising a better life. Instead, he joined forces with the owner of the “Doll House” massage parlor, demanding the girls work day and night. He confiscated their proceeds and used violence and threats to keep them from leaving. When one victim dozed off in a motel room, Nash dragged her out of bed and slammed her head into a toilet, cracking the seat with her skull — a warning to other victims about what could happen to them if they failed to earn enough money.
Nash recruited the 17-year-old via Facebook with promises of gifts and trips, evidence showed. One day, he showed up at her mother’s apartment in a Mercedes to drive her to a liaison.
“I was a vulnerable little girl in need of guidance. I was desperate for help. Allen Nash knew that” the young woman, now 22, said in an impact statement read aloud in court today. “I think it’s safe to say the devil lives in him.”
Nash routinely uploaded profanity-laced videos of himself clutching fistfuls of dollar bills, boasting about “ho money,” prosecutors said. Nash, Doll House owner Connie Su Moser, and manager Kum Shugars arranged illicit meetups on Backpage.com, thinly disguised as “body rub” treatments.
“Preying on vulnerable young women is despicable, and this sentence validates that important message,” said Nealy Cox. “I’m proud of the women who came forward to help us bring Mr. Nash to justice. We will continue to prioritize human trafficking cases across the Northern District of Texas.”
The City of Dallas and Dallas County are “blue,” and that is the reason I wrote the book Hold Texas, Hold the Nation: Victory or Death. The leadership of major cities in Texas resembles California more so than it does the Lone Star State. One of the ways it does so is support for illegal immigration and sanctuary city status. Yes, we have that here in this area. That was why Texas Governor Greg Abbott had to sign legislation refuting these attempts by progressive socialists who were enabling this anti-Constitutional action, sanctuary cities.
Consider that here, in Texas, we have someone running to be the senatorial representative who believes in open borders, sanctuary cities, no longer making the illegal crossing of our border a crime, and abolishing ICE. Yes, that would be Rep. Robert “Bob” O’Rourke from El Paso. Did I mention he has an arrest record?
Let’s be honest with ourselves: the progressive socialist left has taken positions that enable the evils of sex trafficking — and yes, murder — to happen to young American women. No, that is not over the top, considering cases such as Kate Steinle and Mollie Tibbetts. I mean c’mon, the left always talks about a “war on women,” then why do they support an ideological agenda that would enable a war on women?
If we abolish ICE and adopt the policies of sanctuary cities, what happens with these young girls who are human and sex trafficked. And yes, I have spoken with some local law enforcement officers who have confided in me just how bad this issue is here in Dallas. I think it is fair to say that the progressive, socialist left in America embraces a lawless policy agenda that is detrimental to the safety and security of Americans, and that includes legal residents, as well as sets the conditions for the most despicable violation of human rights, sex trafficking.
Now, why would anyone support, campaign for, and vote with such a group, a political party? To all of you who joined in the “#AbolishICE” protests, who will then clean up our streets? And no, I am not talking about Hillary Clinton “you mean wiping it down with a cloth” cleaning. Who will keep the evil away from us, and protect our children, all children, from the horrors of human and sex trafficking?
All y’all here in Dallas, and Dallas County, I have a question: do you really want to vote for these progressive socialists running under the Mobocrat banner? Do we want more sanctuary cities, and rampant criminal illegal immigrant activity, along with the proliferation of human and sex trafficking? This is who they are. This is what they would allow to thrive in our society, on our streets. Where are those screeching feminist voices who claim to want to protect women, all women? Hmm, I suppose they, truthfully, do not.
A special hat tip to the men and women of our Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency. Y’all keep protecting us!
