Frankly, there really is no question if the president has the authority to restrict immigration for national security. The applicable federal law is crystal clear. The “judge”who blocked this order is placing his opinions and feelings above his duty as a judge.
Law enforcement enforcing laws? How will America ever survive? Noted blogger William Teach actually favors enforcing laws. That is like is soooooooo insensitive
Does anyone remember this type of headline while Obama was in office, and federal authorities were raiding workplaces and homes to snatch up illegal aliens? Not from the Credentialed Media. It shows the bias in the media, however, this is actually a good thing with illegals being fearful, as CNN attempts to paint a sob story
Across the United States, some unauthorized immigrants are keeping their children home from school. Others have suspended after-school visits to the public library. They have given up coffee shop trips and weekend restaurant dinners with family.
Some don’t answer knocks on their doors. They’re taping bedsheets over windows and staying off social media. Nervous parents and their children constantly exchange text messages and phone calls.
From New York to Los Angeles, a series of immigration arrests this week have unleashed waves of fear and uncertainty across immigrant communities.
Where’s the downside? People who’ve broken the law should be fearful of law enforcement coming by and picking them up, then sending them back to their originating countries. Because they are unlawfully present. And using up valuable resources that would be best reserved for legal citizens.
Of course, the media paints a false narrative (Fake News) here that hard working people are being hunted down in droves, rounded up, and booted back to their native countries. But, even with false narratives the truth comes out
ICE said Friday that about 160 foreign nationals were arrested during the week.
Of those, 150 had criminal histories, and of the remaining arrests, five had final orders of removal or were previously deported.
So, well over 90% of those picked up had, say it with me CRIMINAL HISTORIES! In other words they are the ones that ought to be apprehended. And their crimes? violent felonies
But, the media paints a picture that is misleading as to who is being targeted. Enough! the media has a job, when they do it it is a wonderful thing. When they don’t? Well………
They want your vote your money, and yeah, they care more about illegal immigrants than they do about you, laws, or America. Wyblog explains
Three New Jersey Democrats think they’ve found a sure-fire way to sidestep President Trump’s plan to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities — have NJ taxpayers make up the difference.
New Jersey lawmakers from immigrant-rich Hudson County on Tuesday announced a bill that would provide state aid to sanctuary cities denied federal funds for failing to comply with immigration rules.
The bill was introduced in both houses of the legislature on Tuesday by State Sen. Brian Stack, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji and Assemblywoman Annette Chaparro, all Democrats from the 33rd District.
The legislation, S-3007 in the Senate and A-4590 in the Assembly, would allow municipalities or counties denied federal funds to apply to the state Commissioner of Community Affairs for a “dollar-for-dollar” match to compensate for the withheld federal money.
So in short, they wish to first break federal laws, then, when hit with penalties, they want you, the tax payers to bend over for them! After all, they want open borders, and screw you if you disagree. Again, from Wyblog
The mayor of Prospect Park, NJ is, and he’s opening the gates and beckoning the barbarians inside.
Prospect Park Mayor, Mohamed T. Khairullah, signed an executive order to reassure residents that they will be protected from President Donald J. Trump’s executive order to ban green card and visa holders, along with refugees, regardless of any resident’s immigration status.
Break the law, we won’t care!
His name’s Mohamed, so I’m guessing if someone breaks Sharia law, he’ll care, a lot. Immigration law, not so much.
In his executive order, he made it clear that all citizens, regardless if immigrant, refugee, green or visa card holder, are safe in Prospect Park and will not turn anyone to the federal government unless they have committed unlawful actions.
These are the clowns who are supposed to represent the people? Frankly, every city official who deliberately breaks federal immigration laws should not only be thrown from office, but should be arrested and forced to stand trial.
I am very proud to live in Texas, and very proud of our governor, Greg Abbott for his ideological clarity in standing up to the special snowflakes who think borders are silly and racist
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has no sympathy for the sanctuary campus movement, declaring his intention to cut funding for any state school that attempts to make itself a sanctuary for illegal immigrants.
In a series of tweets posted on the Republican governor’s account, Abbott assured concerned constituents that “Texas will not tolerate sanctuary campuses or cities,” vowing multiple times that he will cut funding for any state entity that attempts such a plot, which the City of Austin and the University of Texas system have pledged to do.
One of the most cherished dreams of the Left is to do away with borders, national sovereignty, and most of all, America. The left wishes us all to be “equal” you see. Rather than helping countries improve by emulating the United States, and other capitalist nations, the Left always seeks to tear down the United States because “inequality”. It is not “fair” that America is stronger and more successful! So, America must share its success by eliminating its borders. Again because “inequality”. If America offers greater opportunities because of our economic system, then we must throw open our borders to allow people from less successful nations in. This, of course is madness.
If the Left were truly seeking to help Latin American nations they would encourage them to be more like the United States. They would push them to throw off Communism, and corruption, and replace those with free enterprise, and greater liberty for the people. That is how nations succeed, by not standing in the way of ambition and competition. The fact is the more freedom a nation has, the more successful its people will be. But, of course, improving less successful nations is not the Left’s real goal is it? No, because there will still be inequality you see. The egalitarian left cannot not stand that. They seek equality, period! It does not matter if everyone does better in America to them. All they see is America somehow “stealing” from less prosperous nations. America has too much, they say, as if there is only so much prosperity. That is not fair so America must stop being America.
There will always be inequality, of course, it is the natural course of life. And, the fact is this, inequality is not necessarily a bad thing. Yes, inequality in application of laws and natural rights is very bad. The Left, however, fights to redistribute wealth, and to “level” the playing field. This is a fool’s errand. There is no level playing field in the real world. There is only competition, innovation, and differing levels of success, and yes, failures. You cannot change that reality by trying to force some unattainable, one size fits all equality onto successful nations. Nor can you do it by destroying nations by destroying borders.
People are not meant to be equal, they are individuals, unique, different, and crushing individualism by empowering governments to mandate some false equality will never attain anything of worth. And the only equality you will ever achieve will be an equality of depravity.
APPOINT AN ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO WILL PROSECUTE HILLARY CLINTON
Hillary Clinton represents everything that is wrong with the American political class. She epitomizes establishment corruption and wanton criminality, and to ignore her blatantly felonious behavior is to condone it.
REPEAL & REPLACE OBAMACARE
Of all the ruinous policies enacted by the previous administration, none is so egregious and universally despised as The Affordable Care Act. It must be eradicated like the cancer that it is and replaced with a free-market-based alternative as soon as humanly possible.
BUILD THE WALL
This is the primary reason why Donald Trump was elected president, make no mistake about it, and while its construction will not, in and of itself, put an end to illegal immigration, it will symbolize a seriousness of intent with respect to border security that has been sorely lacking in our government for decades.
APPOINT ORIGINALISTS TO THE FEDERAL JUDICIARY
When it comes to our nation’s highest courts, there are essentially two types of judges who oversee them, originalists and activists. Activistic judges believe that our Constitution is a “living, breathing” document that they are free to modify from the bench at any time and for any reason they concoct. As for originalist judges, I think Justice Antonin Scalia put it best when he said: “Our manner of interpreting the Constitution is to begin with the text, and to give that text the meaning that it bore when it was adopted by the people.”
SLASH TAXES ON BUSINESS & RENEGOTIATE INTERNATIONAL TRADE DEALS
Reinvigorating the U.S. economy cannot occur without radically reducing taxes on the companies which make up its foundation. Business taxes amount to taxes on all Americans – be they CEOs, employees, stockholders or consumers – and trillions of dollars have been lost to our economy over the years due to government’s insistence on inflicting punitive taxation upon our nation’s most productive citizens. Adding insult to injury, pro-globalist trade policies like NAFTA have served to accelerate the decline of America’s economic vitality, and any attempts to reverse the trends of the past few decades without addressing these key points will prove futile.
DRASTICALLY CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING & REGULATION
Cutting government spending begins with downsizing the bureaucracies infesting it. This can be done through attrition, which simply means not hiring new federal employees to replace the ones who retire for an extended period of time. Beyond that, there are scores of agencies which should be eliminated entirely, like the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Housing & Urban Development, and the EPA for starters. Furthermore, federal regulations have become so pervasive that reducing their number by 50 percent would still leave the Federal Register with nearly 100,000 pages of growth-killing rules. Yes, certain regulatory powers must be exercised in order to stop bad people from doing harm to the rest of us, but when nanny-state know-it-alls in Washington DC decide to start telling the rest of us how much water we can use to flush our toilets or what sort of bulbs we can screw into our light fixtures, they’ve engaged in the sort of conduct that our founding fathers would have taken up arms to oppose.
By Edward L. Daley
What would Hillary’s immigration stance be? No, I am not referring to a “wall” that is never going to get built anyway, no matter which party s in power. I am not even wondering about our Southern border, which is a crucial issue. No, my biggest concern is immigration by refugees. Refugees whose values are simply incompatible with American values. Daniel Greenfield has similar concerns
The wave of Muslim refugee terror began with a bomb targeting a U.S. Marine charity run in New Jersey. By evening a pressure cooker full of shrapnel has exploded outside a Manhattan building for the blind. An hour later, a rampaging Muslim terrorist began stabbing people inside a Macy’s, asking them if they were Muslim and shouting the name of “Allah,” the genocidal Islamic deity of mass murder.
And that was one Saturday, two Muslim refugees and a wave of national terror 1,200 miles apart.
What did Elizabeth, New Jersey and St. Cloud, Minnesota have in common?
New Jersey has the second largest Muslim population in the country. This isn’t the first time it was used as a staging ground for Muslim terror.
11 of the 19 September 11 hijackers hung out in Paterson (known colloquially as Paterstine). Head toward Jersey City and you can see where Muslim enemies of this country stood on rooftops and cheered the attacks on September 11. It’s also where the World Trade Center bombing mastermind and the Blind Sheikh who provided religious guidance for a proposed wave of Islamic terror operated.
Go south and in Elizabeth you can pass the First American Fried Chicken joint where the Rahami clan made life miserable for their American neighbors before one of their spawn began his bombing spree.
New Jersey is a map of Muslim terror plots because of its huge Muslim population.
Ahmad Khan Rahami came to America as the son of an Afghan refugee. He stabbed a man two years ago. His family was a local nuisance who cried “Islamophobia” at the least provocation. His brother was a Jihadi sympathizer and may have fled the country after assaulting a police officer. By the time Ahmad was done, he had wounded a police officer and 29 other people. If his plot had succeeded, he might have pulled off the largest Muslim terror atrocity in the country since September 11.
And of course Minnesota has similar issues
Minnesota has suffered from the presence of the largest Somali migrant population in the country. And so a state which used to be known for its Swedish and German immigrants instead became a recruiting ground for ISIS and Al-Shabab. Al-Shabab, which is aligned with Al Qaeda, attacked the Westgate mall in Kenya a few years ago. The Somali killers quizzed their victims to distinguish Muslims from non-Muslims.
Dahir Adan, the Somali Muslim migrant who invaded America from a refugee camp in Kenya, attempted to duplicate that attack, asking those he stabbed at the Crossroads Mall if they were Muslims.
Dozens of Somali migrants in America have joined Al-Shabab and ISIS. The only difference between Dahir Adan and them is that instead of getting on a plane back to his native Somalia to join the local Jihadists, he carried out his Jihad against the nighttime shoppers in a Macy’s.
The Crossroads attack was the tragic price paid by innocent people for Muslim refugee resettlement.
Muslim Somali migration dramatically increased under Obama, rising from 2,500 in 2008 to around 8,000 and 9,000 in the last few years. Somali settlers represent almost 1 percent of the population of Minnesota. Most of the “refugees” dumped in St. Cloud were Somalis migrants and Lutheran Social Services has taken the lead in inflicting Somalis on the unfortunate natives of St. Cloud.
From the very beginning of their arrival, the Somali colonists were a problem for the people of St. Cloud. They displaced American workers and clashed with the native population. In this decade, St. Cloud has become 10% Somali. The Crossroads attack was the inevitable result of that demographic growth.
What happened in New Jersey and Minnesota is the same thing that has been happening in Europe. Islamic terrorism is caused by Muslim migration. As the Muslim population grows, so does its terror.
Yes, just like Europe. well, Europe has it far worse, for now, because it has been more heavily engaged in allowing mass immigration of people who, again, hold very different values than the West does. Yes, Europe has it worse, for now. But Europe also grants us a preview what is to come. And that will be sooner rather than later given the Left thirst for more refugees, more Muslim refugees to be specific. The fact is the American Left is turning a blind eye to reality. Anyone who writes what Greenfield writes will be blasted as a bigot, as Islamophobic, or intolerant. Facts be damned, what we see in Europe be damned. We must have tolerance, or at least the Left’s perverse definition of tolerance in America. Even if it kills some, or many of us.
The fact is, there are numerous reasons for our government, yes both parties turning a blind eye to illegal immigration. Some are economic, some are, based on the Left’s version of fairness. But at the heart of both illegal immigration, and the influx of Muslim “refugees” is the Left’s hatred of American sovereignty. If the Left believes anything at all, it believes America must be broken and remade. America was founded on every value and principle the Left abhors. Individual liberty, natural rights, free markets are all despised by the Left, which is Collectivist in nature. So, anything that alters America is and will be supported by the Left.
Immigration, of course is not the problem. Immigration sand assimilation IS the problem. The Left, of course sees assimilation as a bad thing. After all, bringing in immigrants who share America’s Judeo-Christian values, and love of Individualism will not change America will it? Stressing assimilation is never going to really change what America is. Of course not. Your religion, or skin color do not matter so much if you share the basic American values of free markets, individual liberty, respect for the rights of others and self-determination. So, assimilation is undesirable according to the Left. Again, the Left is using immigration, both legal and illegal to change, yes fundamentally change America.
This issue, to me might be the most crucial reason we must never elect Hillary Clinton. We know what her immigration positions will be. Hillary is of the Left, she shares their values, and she will seek to do everything in her power to continue the Obama administration disastrous refugee and immigration policies. And yes, her policies will lead to more, not fewer terror attacks. If you do not believe me ask France how its immigration policies are working out. Or ask Germany, or Sweden. Of course, we must also consider how a President Hillary would respond to increased acts of Jihad. She would likely blame America, who else? And she would be certain to use such attacks to increase pressure for stricter gun laws, which would make us less safer still. She would likely lead a charge to punish “anti-Muslim” speech as well. Again, she, and the Left would eagerly use such a situation to further push their ultimate goal of altering America. Remember, the Left never allows a good crisis to, well you know the rest!
It would seem Team Obama loves releasing dangerous people to prey upon decent Americans
The Obama administration, forced to cut spending under the congressional sequester, ordered immigration officials to slash jailed illegals by over 5,000, including some accused of “terroristic threats,” drunk driving, drug and gun possession and sexual assault, according to newly revealed emails.
Ah, those mean Republicans “forced” the releases because “spending cuts”. So, Team Obama could not find anywhere else to cut? Where are their priorities? I think we know
Hundreds of emails obtained by the Immigration Reform Law Instituteunder a Freedom of Information Act demand showed urgent demands from Washington to Immigration and Customs Enforcement outposts around the country to release illegals after the 2013 sequester went into effect.
The administration tried to prioritize non-criminal illegals for release, but pressure to move fast prompted the release of criminals. Several illegal immigrants detained for terrorist activities were cited in release emails obtained by the Institute.
Again, there was no where else they could have cut? No, no, of course not because optics
“These emails make it crystal clear that the administration was more concerned with the political optics of its immigration enforcement efforts than with its duty to keep Americans safe from criminal and illegal aliens,” said FAIR spokesman Dave Ray. “Unfortunately, some American families paid the ultimate price – the loss of a loved one – for this political theater.”
President Obama’s immigration policies have been plagued with violence and even murder by illegal aliens released from jails instead of being deported.
And the best part? Hillary will be just as bad, if not worse
