Video Podcast – The Immigration Migration – The Great Abortion Debate

by Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist:

The federal government is planning on dumping up to 1,000 illegal immigrants in two Florida Counties every month. Governor Ron DeSantis had no idea this was going happen. He was given no warning.

I discuss just how wrong this is and how it can possibly still be happening under president Trump.

Democrats are in a panic over several recent State abortion restriction laws.

I discuss the nonsensical arguments of the dems and just why they are in such a panic over an issue they claim is a slam dunk for the left. read more

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Democrat Illegal Alien Platform

A couple of the many dems vying for the presidential nod are unveiling immigration platforms. Kamala Harris and Julian Castro try to outdo each other by pushing the ball further left.

Too Many Candidates

There are currently 25 to 30 democrats vying for the nomination for President. They can’t all think they can win, so why are they running? I discuss the possibly that some are just looking to capitalize on the title of former presidential candidate and parlay it into a second career. read more

Damn the Torpedoes – Cut Foreign Aid

During a time of increased illegal immigration at the Southern border in the summer of 2014, democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein encouraged President Barack Obama to use his “very broad power” to limit immigration as he saw fit.

In a letter sent to Obama, Feinstein noted that she spoke with Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about how to address the immigration “crisis.”

“There is also an argument that there is sufficient flexibility in current law for the government to respond to the current crisis and that further legislation is not needed,” Feinstein said.

She was referring to Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the president to limit immigration that is “detrimental to the interests of the United States.”

Feinstein continued to argue that “no legislation is necessary to give your administration the tools it needs to respond to this crisis, and that any needed temporary measures can be implemented through presidential action.”

My how the democrats are singing a different tune less than five years later. Crisis then – no crisis now. I’m sure it can’t have anything to do with the fact that Donald Trump is now president. Or maybe it’s that Obama was just so darn successful at curtailing illegal crossings that the crisis simply is no more. Yeah, I’m sure that’s it. read more

Don’t Believe the Left Concerning Dr. King’s Stance on Immigration

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday was a day of remembrance for all Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did to advance the cause of racial equality in America.

Unfortunately, over the years his message of unity has been hijacked by the radical left. So much so that a white conservative is no longer even allowed to quote his words verbatim without being pilloried by the media and leftist activists.

Take, for example what Vive President Mike Pence said on MLK day. When speaking of border security, Pence quoted a single line from King. “…now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.” He dovetailed that sentiment into a call to democrats to, “Come to the table in a spirit of good faith. We’ll secure our border, we’ll reopen our government.”

This simple quote sparked a visceral reaction from the left including King’s son, Martin Luther King III. read more

Video Podcast Replay – A Personal Experience of Illegal Immigration

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, there will be no new podcast, Please accept my apologies.

But as the border and illegal immigration is still on everyone’s mind because of the dreaded shutdown, and rather than leave you with nothing, I’m offering up one more popular podcasts I recorded early last year.

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

I took a trip recently and experienced something astounding. While driving between two major Northeast cities I was scanning the FM radio dial. I noticed something rather odd.

First that there was literally no country stations within this metro corridor. And second, that it seemed that almost 50% of all the stations played Latin music and Spanish speaking DJ’s.

Then there was the rather lengthy commercial, where the two DJ’s described free legal services for illegal immigrants as well discussing their rights. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.

Illegals are Surrendering in Record Numbers – Because they Understand Catch and Release

from Conservative Review:

Border reality: A caravan crosses every day

A caravan a day makes our sovereignty go away.

If you want to see what a real government shutdown looks like, look at what is going on at our border. And it’s a much bigger problem than the news-covered caravan parked south of San Diego. It’s the equivalent of a caravan quietly crossing our border every day. Because Pelosi and Schumer refuse to end catch-and-release policies, the drug cartels are using our border agents to complete the criminal conspiracy killing our citizens.

On Tuesday, Kevin McAleenan, commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, testified before the Senate that 3,029 illegals were apprehended at the border on December 3, the biggest single-day number in years. That would be a pace of over 1.1 million a year. The Arizona Republic is reporting that record numbers of Guatemalan families are crossing in the Yuma sector just west of San Luis where the Colorado River has dried up. There are no pedestrian fences in that part of the Yuma sector, and they are coming right over the dried-up river to surrender themselves to agents. read more

Trump Can Use his Veto Pen and Bully Pulpit to End Illegal Immigration

The question is…will he?

from Conservative Review:

The American taxpayer is ALWAYS the Forgotten Man — especially in the immigration fight

The president will never have as much leverage or a better impetus for a budget fight than he does now. Will he finally demand action and use his veto for leverage?

On December 8, the government will face its final budget deadline with Republicans in control of the trifecta of government. A budget, at its core, is an expression of our values. There is no greater value more relevant to this budget deadline than protecting the taxpayers from the high cost of illegal aliens invading our border, draining our schools and communities, and flooding us with the most deadly drugs and gangs that help fund international terrorism. It’s high time for Trump to finally take his case to the American people in dramatic fashion and threaten to veto any bill that fails to address the border crisis, not just from the standpoint of funding the border wall, but also ending the invasion permanently. read more

Democrat Immigration Hypocrisy on Display Yet Again

from the Daily Caller:

FEINSTEIN URGED OBAMA TO USE PRESIDENTIAL POWER TO LIMIT IMMIGRATION: ‘NO LEGISLATION NECESSARY’

  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use broad presidential powers to tighten immigration rules in response to a wave of migration from Central America in 2014.
  • In a letter to Obama, Feinstein cited the same statutory authority that President Donald Trump invoked to make illegal border-crossers ineligible for asylum.
  • That authority comes from Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the president to “impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use the “very broad power” granted to him by Congress to limit immigration in any way he saw fit, according to a letter obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. read more

The Migrant March to Violence

No Audio VersionImage result for Migrants tear down fence

Many are saying we can’t use troops on the border – that they aren’t law enforcement. They’re right – the military isn’t law enforcement. But why are we treating a several thousand strong potential invasion like a law enforcement issue?

Who else would you use to repel an invasion? And don’t tell me this isn’t a planned and orchestrated event.

What would you call a well coordinated throng of thousands of people simultaneously attempting to cross our border without our consent? If it’s not an invasion – you tell me what is.

And it doesn’t need to be an armed invasion. In my opinion, the leftist cheer squad who want this “border crossing” to occur, don’t want these people armed.

They are, I’m sure of it, hoping for another Gaza border incident where the Israelis got almost unanimously admonished by the press for defending their own border. Every world wide leftist condemned them – not the Palestinians and not Hamas.

Those on the left want the issue and nothing more. They want to continue the fairy tale that democrats are the party of immigrants and diversity and Republicans are the party of white privilege and bigotry. In their hearts, every reasonable person knows illegal immigration is wrong, which is why they purposely blur the lines between legal and illegal immigration. read more
