A Patriotic American pro-boxer made quite the political statement for President Donald Trump and his signature campaign promise to Build The Wall on the border between the U.S. and Mexico in an effort to stem the tide of the illegal alien invasion which has been going on for the past 30 years.
With thunderous applause, Rod Salka stepped into the ring with Francisco Vargas during Golden Boy’s ESPN event in Indio, California. Salka, who is an American, was sporting brick-patterned trunks in red, white and blue, with his waistband reading, “America 1st.”
The left of course cheered as Vargas, a Mexican by “heritage” and a Pennsylvanian by birth, also known as “El Bandido” beat Salka in the sixth round. Salka’s trainers stopped the fight at the beginning of the seventh round.
Deadspin reported on the fight:
“Vargas dominated the fight, sending Salka to his knees with an uppercut in the fifth round, and then landing a series of punches in the sixth round that opened a cut around Salka’s left eye. Salka never made it out of his corner for the seventh round, as his trainers stopped the fight.
Vargas stated on Salka’s trunks via ESPN Deportes – “Once we were already in the ring, the wall was an extra [motivation] so I gave it everything. Whatever it is I represent Mexico and I feel that wall is against all my countrymen.”
His countrymen? But wasn’t he born in Pensylvania?
Many on the left insanely believe this fight was some sort of commentary on illegal immigration and are stating that Salka’s loss is some sort of referendum in support of sanctuary policies. They were also quick to remind Salka of his attempt to enter the realm of politics in 2016, running as the Republican candidate for District 38 of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives before losing to Democratic incumbent William Kortz II. The district has been notably represented by a Democrat since at least 1969, and the crime and poverty levels all reflect that fact.
Vargas demonstrated exactly the reason why Patriotic Americans take issue with the majority of illegal immigrants and even some legal immigrants. If you were born in Pennsylvania how on earth could you ever call Mexicans “your countrymen?” Of course, you can be of Mexican heritage, but at what time exactly do you start to consider Americans your “Countrymen?”
But in other news, the awesome update we have about the actual border wall is that since both political parties are against it, the Republicans because of America Chamber of Commerce money and the Democrats because of the need to have more low information voters ready to believe their lies. The President fooled everyone during the last omnibus bill and secured the money to build the wall through military funding.

This, of course, was a huge moment for the president, seeing that the border wall was something he campaigned on passionately during his campaign. And even better is the fact he actually was able to sneak in that funding to be able to keep that promise even though both parties were against it is priceless and typical Trump.
“President Trump’s statement on Tuesday came after he has made increased comments about immigration and border security in recent days, as a caravan of Central American migrants was heading north through Mexico to reach the U.S.
“Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military,” Trump said on Tuesday.
“That’s a big step,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “We really haven’t done that before, certainly not very much before.”
Currently, U.S. Border Patrol is in charge of patrolling and maintaining the border.
Trump on Tuesday also addressed a caravan of immigrants that was attempting to travel to the U.S. from Honduras.
“I told Mexico very strongly that you’re going to have to do something about the caravans that are coming,” Trump said, adding that the caravan was now “breaking up very rapidly.”
“Mexico has very strong immigration laws. We should have those laws,” the President also said. “We have immigration laws that are laughed at by everybody. We need the wall, we need the protection, and we need to change our immigration laws at the border and elsewhere.”
“The caravan makes me very sad that this could happen to the United States, where you have thousands of people that just decide to walk into our country and we don’t have any laws that could protect it,” he said.
“If it reaches our border, our laws are so weak and so pathetic… it’s like we have no border,” Trump said.
Gutiérrez said that even though both Mexico and the U.S. have a desire for border security, the two countries disagree on how to make the borders secure. He also reiterated that Mexico will not be paying for the border wall.
“A relation like the one between Mexico and the United States needs to have spaces in order to agree to disagree,” he said. “The issue of the wall is certainly one of them, and as my government has clearly expressed already, Mexico by no means would be paying for a wall.”
