Video Podcast – Thank You for Flying ICE Air

Just how are illegal immigrants deported anyway? It turns out there a few ways. One is to hoof-it back across the border from whence they came. Another is a chartered bus that our benevolent federal government provides, and a third is by aircraft.

They call it ICE-Air, owing to the fact that the aircraft is provided by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. They charter many flights a year to ferry illegals back to their homeland where they belong – because they certainly don’t belong here in America.

Today I discuss ICE-Air, how it works and maybe an idea or two on improving the system of deportation. read more

MS-13 Charged with Murder in Maryland

from Breitbart:

Five illegal aliens who are part of the MS-13 gang were charged in connection with the brutal murder of a Maryland woman who was beaten to death and buried in June and unearthed in September.

Maryland authorities discovered the body of 21-year-old Jenni B, Rivera in a shallow grave on the outskirts of Annapolis, the Baltimore Sun reported. The victim was allegedly lured to her death and then beaten by Ervin Figueroa, Brenda Argueta, Ronald Mendez Sosa, Darvin Guerra-Zacarias, and Francisco Ramirez-Pena, all five members of the MS-13 who have immigration detainers on them. Each had varying degrees of participation with two carrying out the actual murder.  read more

Video Podcast – Let me introduce a Real DREAMer

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I liked to introduce you all to man who long ago fell in love with America – the idea and ideals of our great nation.

His name is Jonathon Dunne and he is a foreigner, from Ireland. He’s also a man who has been trying to come here with the “dream” of becoming an American. But, surprise, surprise – he refuses to sneak into our country like so many millions have. He actually has principles and says he loves America too much to defile it in such a way.

I’ll tell you his story and more, as I discuss my favorite topic – illegal immigration. I think I kept it to one official melt-down this time. read more

WND Exclusive – Can we still trust President Trump?

The nation is all a atwitter over this apparent Trump-Schumer-Pelosi triumvirate.

I was personally disappointed that Trump even met with the two dirt dealers. Nothing productive could come of it. And herein lies the problem: We don’t know what was said or agreed upon, yet everyone has an opinion – but based on what?

I suppose, we could base opinion on conjecture or “ifs,” as it were. If Trump did this, then we’re happy – if Trump did that, then we’re mad, etc. read more

Leftist Latinos Demand End to Free Speech

It’s a fact – possibly provable by science – that what little common sense many high school kids have, rapidly fades away when they go off to college. With any and all parental supervision removed, students believe they have license to be stupid.

Such it was at Cornell University, when a student and member of the Zeta Psi fraternity was heard chanting, “build that wall.”

The chant was heard, “near the Latino Living Center early Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump ordered the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program,” writes the Cornell Daily Sun.

To clarify the above statement, as the Cornell Daily Sun will surely not, President Trump did not “end” the DACA program. He suspended it for six months to allow the correct branch of government, the Legislative, to craft a lawful solution.

They, like all other leftist journals, would prefer their readers to believe racist Trump just ended it. I’m not defending Trump’s decision. As it was an illegal action, I think he should have just ended it and left it at that, but I’m not president. read more

Enough Broken Promises Mr. President

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Why are we wasting our time talking about DACA? As much as I hate giving up on an issue, this one is a waste of our energies. The 800,000 (to start) illegal aliens are here to stay. And make no mistake – they are illegal aliens. Whether they are said to be “protected” by an illegal presidential action appears to be irrelevant.

Obama knew, as do the majority of the political left, that it has become easy to just create an entitlement class. Obama simply used a “stop me if you dare” executive memo to do so. With no such authority, he singlehandedly established, what Michelle Malkin describes  as a new “deserving” class.

She frustratingly repeats the tiresome refrain of DREAMer advocates:

“They don’t deserve to be punished.”
“They deserve protection.”
“They deserve the American dream.”
Deserve, deserve, deserve.

And why? Well – there is no why. There no longer has to be. Obama and the left knew that all they needed was time. Enough time for our political class to grow comfortable with idea of a new entitlement group. Time is the friend of all entitlements. They knew that given enough time, the new entitlement would become the new normal. Once it is installed and a little time is allowed to pass, it’s there for good. read more

Nothing More Important than Saving DACA

by: the Common Constitutionalist

President Trump appears to be as good as his campaign promise – to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program illegally instituted by Obama.

Well, he kind of did and kind of didn’t. Although some on the right are praising him for ending the amnesty program, he did so with a caveat.

It seems nothing can be done cleanly in Washington. There must always be an exception or fine print.

Although the DACA program will not accept new arrivals, and that’s good, Trump did give Congress the opportunity, with a 6 month deadline, to “fix it” by way of legislation.

This of course is the way any immigration policy should be defined – by a law – crafted and passed by Congress, which has sole purview over all matters concerning naturalization, and by extension, immigration.

CNN reports that, “Under existing law, before DACA, these children were just as subject to deportation as their parents, even though they were blameless in the decision to cross the border and most have known no other home besides the United States.” read more

Video Podcast – I’m Dreamin of an End to DACA

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

President Trump has plans to end Obama’s signature program this Tuesday. Let’s hope he does. I explain why DACA is unfair to Americans and frankly is illegal and unconstitutional. Recall that the program was cooked up and sent out as a memo, called an Executive Action.

I also discuss Florida Governor Rick Scott’s convoluted position in favoring the DACA program. He wants to make the Dream Act permanent. Good for him – NOT. read more

So the President Pardoned Sheriff Joe – So What

By: the Common Constitutionalist

I don’t often disagree with the Washington Examiner, but I’m afraid I must this time.

They posted an article entitled, “Trump, once the law and order candidate, embraces lawless disorder with Arpaio pardon.”

So now it’s not only the left who are piling on Joe Arpaio and President Trump, but those on the right are joining the chorus.

You would expect that Trump would have received mass-condemnation from the left. After all, they are the soft-on crime party of illegal aliens. However, many on the supposed right, or who at least call themselves Republicans, are also screeching at Trump’s pardon of the former Maricopa County sheriff.

“The speaker does not agree with the decision,” Doug Andres, spokesman for Speaker Paul Ryan said. “Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States. We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon.”

And what is all this hubbub about? Why did Sheriff Joe have to be pardoned? He was found guilty of criminal contempt by a leftist Clinton appointee, U.S. District Court judge Susan Bolton. She found him guilty of defying her order to cease the “profiling” of Latinos. read more

You May be a Conservative American if:

You are wealthy, unapologetic and not racked with guilt.

You don’t believe you gained your wealth on the backs of the poor.

You are not wealthy, but want to be and don’t wish to rob or scam anyone to get that way.

You don’t feel guilty about wanting to keep more of what you’ve earned.

You don’t hate or wish to punish the people who have more than you, simply because they have more.

You are not a racist, but the left says you are.

You are not a homophobe, but the left says you are.

You are not a bigot, but the left says you are.

You are not a sexist, but the left says you are.

You are not transphobic, but the left says you are.

You don’t believe that because men should use the men’s room and women should use the lady’s room makes you transphobic. read more
