Open Borders & the Welfare State Cannot Coexist

from Onan Coca at Eagle Rising:

Can the USA be the World’s Orphanage?

Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) hit the nail on the head in a recent interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota.

Conservatives have often argued that the left is “trying to have their cake and eat it too” when it comes to illegal immigration and the welfare state.

The simple truth is that you, logically, cannot be for open borders AND the welfare state. It’s impossible. The two cannot coexist. read more

Video Podcast – Caravan Migrants Used as Pawns of the Left

by Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Let’s talk caravans, shall we? No – not Dodge caravans. Illegal immigrant caravans. Although I guess they are only migrant caravans, until they cross our border.

I’m talking about the now world famous caravan of 1000 or 1200 or whatever, that crosses Mexico to attempt to get to America.

Oh great – another right wing whacko gonna dump on the poor undocumented immigrants.

Well – no – no I am not.

Now I didn’t realize, but evidently, these caravans have been going on since 2010, yet I haven’t heard of them until this last adventure. And I don’t recall any national and international reports until now.

And I certainly don’t remember a single instance where a reporter has been embedded with the marchers. Wonder why they chose to do it this time?

And did you know that this was not a spontaneous march. It was funded by the one and only George Soros. What a surprise.

Gun-Free London Building a Violent Legacy

Sadiq Khan’s London: Six Stabbings In 90 Minutes

Since Khan took office, crime has increased by 12%. In the months of February and March, for the first time in modern history, London surpassed the homicide rate of New York City. This was mostly contributed to a spike in knife attacks. Moreover, the city has seen “epidemic” levels of acid attacks, which are common in Muslim majority countries. read more

Trump Says Troops on the Border – Not in Syria

from Conservative Review:

Our border is a better place for our military than the Middle East

The purpose of the military begins with homeland security.

Yesterday, the president took us one step closer to reorienting our national security priorities by announcing his intention both to withdraw our troops from Syria in the near future and send National Guard troops to our own border. Isn’t it time to guard our sovereignty rather than the “sovereignty” of Islamic tribal factions in nation-states that no longer exist?

A much stronger case for using our military on our own border than in Syria read more

Look Out for a New Term – Misdocumented Immigrant

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The left has been quite successful at framing the immigration debate. What used to be accepted as an accurate portrayal of those sneaking into our country, is now demonized as near hate speech. I’m speaking of the term illegal alien, which over the years has been intentionally softened into the current term, undocumented immigrant.

Framing a debate or terminology is a psychological technique that can influence the perception of a political or social movement. Leftists are masters at this.

It’s not difficult. At my day job, I may be speaking to a customer and he or she may give a phone number or credit card number, etc. As they begin to dictate the number, I repeat it back for accuracy. They may give me the number zero, yet call it, not zero, but ‘O’, as in the letter O. When I repeat it back, I’m careful to say zero instead. In almost all cases, in an unconscious desire to conform, the next time they say the number zero, they will say zero – not ‘O’. It’s fascinating, and it confirms this desire to conform.

The left knows this better than do we, which is why we on the right fall prey to it so often, by adopting their terminology. read more

Finally – A Reasonable Ruling Against Sanctuary Cities

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

On March 13, 2018, it was reported that the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals handed down a rather stunning panel decision regarding immigration and sanctuary cities. And for once, a federal court, via a three-judge panel, sided with the good guys – mostly. The good guys being us – the law abiding, tax paying American citizen. Considering the make-up of most courts, and the hot potato issue that is illegal immigration and sanctuary cities, any win is encouraging.

The court didn’t rule as the Trump administration and most of us would have liked. They never do. Trump has been demanding that sanctuary cities by stripped of federal funding until they comply with federal immigration law.

However they did rule that, “the federal government’s [ICE] detainer requests, which ask local governments to hold illegal immigrants for pickup, are legal.”

The ruling stemmed from a Texas law that was challenged in court. read more

The Border Wall Works – Let’s Build It

from Constitution.com:

Trump Gets Amazing Proof of Just How Effective Border Walls Can Be

There is an old saying that good fences make for good neighbors and during his recent trip to California, President Donald trump learned how effective even a makeshift border wall can be.

Trump got some shocking news when he visited the southern border near San Diego, California, on Tuesday, March 13. Not only did he learn that a border wall can be highly effective, but he found out that there doesn’t even have to be some elaborate, high-dollar system to make it effective for stopping illegal border crossings.

Trump headed to the People’s Republic of California this week in part to view some border wall prototypes. read more

Media Lies Again About Woman’s Deportation

from The Blaze:

Media vilify Border Patrol over viral video of one mom’s arrest — but ignore why she was arrested

The media had a field day with the U.S. Border Patrol’s arrest of Perla Morales-Luna on March 3 in Southern California.

Morales-Luna is the illegal alien who was arrested on video while her children screamed in the background. The video has since gone viral.

More details behind Morales-Luna’s arrest have emerged, however, and the facts tell a different story from the emotionally charged video that made rounds on the internet. read more

FBI is too Distracted by Watchlists

From Ann Coulter/Breitbart:

Amazing New Breakthrough to Reduce Mass Shootings

As fun as it is to ridicule the FBI for devoting massive resources to chasing down Hillary Clinton’s oppo research while blowing off repeated, specific warnings about school shooter Nikolas Cruz, we’ve put a lot on the agency’s plate.

We’re hauling in nearly 2 million manifestly unvetted Third World immigrants every year, leading to a slew of FBI “Watch Lists” with a million names apiece. In 2015, Director James Comey said that there were ISIS investigations in all 50 states — even Idaho and Alaska! And that’s just one terrorist organization.

Maybe the FBI brass would still be a bunch of incompetent, PC nincompoops if we weren’t dumping millions of psychotic and terrorist foreigners on the country. But even the most efficient organization would have trouble keeping track of the Nikolas Cruzes when our immigration policies require approximately one-third of the country to be constantly watching another third of the country. read more
