What The Left Doesn’t Get About Deportation

A few days ago I read an article on the lefty website The Nation. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, but it’s good to keep up with what the enemy is thinking from time to time. And believe you me – today’s left is our enemy.

The article was entitled, “How Many Presidents Does It Take to Deport 11 Million People?”

I thought, gee, whatever can this be about? Leftist rag plus illegal aliens – couldn’t have anything to do with the Trump and Cruz proposals to deport all illegals, can it? Well, son of a gun – lucky guess, because, sure enough, the subtitle said it all: “There’s nothing realistic about the deportation fantasies of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. But that doesn’t make them any less terrifying.” read more

Four American Presidents Conducted Deportations

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Trump is a blowhard. Let’s just admit it. He’s a loud mouth. But that doesn’t mean one can’t still be a Trump supporter. Frankly, if he’s right on the issues, who cares if he’s a blowhard.

Well, he’s not right on all issues. So why is he still so popular? Why does he remain at the top of the heap despite bashing everyone but his mother? It’s uncivilized they say. Yet none of that appears to matter due to two little words: Illegal Immigration. That’s it.

Although I’m not a Trumpster, I was glad someone finally brought up president Eisenhower and “Operation Wetback,” during the last debate. We “republicans” are supposed to be up on the issues, but I’ll wager 90% in the audience or viewing on TV didn’t know about Eisenhower’s very successful deportation program.

Well, Bill O’Reilly, on behalf of his “folks,” did not take too kindly to Trump invoking the name of Ike. Business Insider writes that the “Eisenhower program has a dark history – including its name, ‘Operation Wetback,’ a derogatory slur. Of course they neglect to mention that in 1950s parlance, the term “wetback” was more factual than merely derogatory, nor did they care a wit about politically correct speech.

And according to CNN, the 1950s-era transfer process resulted in a number of Mexican migrants dying along the way.” They are attempting to make us believe this deportation was the Mexican Trail-of-Tears? read more

Was Eisenhower an Immoral Angry White Man?

By: the Common Constitutionalist

There are things about Donald Trump’s immigration platform I like, and are doable, and things that are kind of absurd and unconstitutional – not to mention progressive.

Building the Trump Wall across the southern border with a few large doors is a good idea. I think most reasonable conservatives would agree. However, making Mexico pay for it is both ridiculous and unrealistic. I suppose he could try, but mostly I think it’s just populist bombast that sells good to the public. I guess is supposed to show how tough he is.

But tariffs, remittance payments and trade restrictions will not nor should they pay for the wall. We can blame Mexico and Central American countries, but we did this to ourselves, so we should pay for it.

What many Republicans are really supporting – what supporters are jazzed about is not just the wall but his idea to deport all illegal invaders. That, and end all sanctuary cities. And on this point, the left, the moderates, and the Chamber of Commerce wing of the Republican Party are spastic.

Ross Kaminsky at the American Spectator echoes the establishment voice quite nicely as he writes: “Mr. Trump wants to remove all illegal aliens from the United States. This is, of course, impossible and, even if it were possible, an outrageous waste of tens or hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars. When asked by Chuck Todd on NBC’s Meet the Press if he should split up families in which one or more of the parents is an illegal alien but their children are US citizens, Trump said no, clarifying in one of the most reprehensible statements I have heard from an American candidate for public office. ‘We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go.’”

While I agree that you can’t just deny the existence of the 14th amendment and deport citizens, I would have preferred that The Donald follow-up his infamous “they have to go” statement with the citizen has a choice. As a citizen, he or she (assuming they are not transgendering) may stay in this country or feel free to leave with your illegal family. It’s your choice. Sure, it’s not their fault that their parents, or whomever is here illegally, but it’s not ours either. Yet both the left and establishment right say, as did Kaminsky, that even the suggestion is immoral. read more

Illegal Immigration – Ike Showed Us the Way

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A couple of days ago, I speculated who else might be crossing into United States via our southern border – besides the “innocent” children. You may review it here.

It certainly appears, at least to me, that no one is being denied entry – which led me to my “Fun with Conspiracy” scenario, where Obama is allowing this to occur (that’s obvious to anyone) and actually encouraging it (again – obvious) to overwhelm the immigration system (Cloward and Piven).

The conspiracy part was that he was also allowing terrorists to freely walk in and set up shop for attacks, as an excuse for him to impose martial law.

Conspiracies aside, we have been hearing for years that we must do something, but that is impossible to seal off the whole southern border, and “do you think we can just round up millions of illegals?”

In fact this problem at the southern border has been plaguing America for well over 50 years.

Enter Dwight D Eisenhower, Supreme Commander – Allied Forces and newly elected President of the United States.

At the time Eisenhower took office in 1953, at least 3 million illegals had already crossed the border and were residing in the United States. read more
