Self-Deportation is Working Again

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A question. What has been the constant and malodorous refrain of both the left and establishment “Chamber of Commerce” right when it comes to illegal immigration? That’s right – “What are going to do – deport them all?”

Early on in the presidential campaign, that’s exactly what president-elect Trump said – that they all must go. Recall he said they he would “keep families together, but they have to go.”

To that the democrats went predictably berserk. How dare he deport them before most got a chance to vote…for democrats.

Unfortunately for our side – the right and legal side – very few, if any ever offer an adequate rebuttal to just how a mass deportation would or could take place. What we heard are diatribes (correct as they be) about the Constitution and the rule-of-law. read more

Are Trump and Universities Headed for a Mexican Standoff?

Things are going to get very interesting, very quickly. At virtually ever post-election speech, Donald Trump continues to emphasize the point of building the wall along our Southern border. He has also reiterated his hard-line stance of ending sanctuary cities. And he’s not the only one. States are following his lead.

On December 1st, Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted  that, “Texas will not tolerate sanctuary campuses or cities. I will cut funding for any state campus if it establishes sanctuary status.”

Two days later, Georgia lawmaker, Earl Ehrhart, said he plans to propose “legislation to defund Universities shielding illegals.”

Meanwhile, major and prestigious universities are girding their loins in preparation for a government crackdown. Harvard University and the University of California have formally announced that they will not comply should Trump follow through with this threat – which, by the way, is not a threat. What it is, is a decision by the president-elect to finally enforce Constitutional and legally passed federal immigration laws. read more

Podcast – Take a Breath Over Trump’s Shifting Rhetoric – Surge in Illegal Crossings

Can we just calm down and take a breath regarding what Trump is now saying compared to what he claimed on the campaign trail and during the debates with Hillary. Trump will be the only complete unknown elected official in Washington. Despite what “experts” claim, no one has a clue what he will do, so why waste time worrying about it. He should receive, by everyone, a 100% clean slate going in. After he makes some actual decisions on policy, we can either applaud him for keeping his word, or call him out for not.

It’s being reported that there has been a huge surge of illegal alien crossing over the past month or so, with almost 50,000 apprehended in the month of October alone. Could it that the flood of illegals is due to the election Donald Trump? Could be. Perhaps illegals read the New York Times and are convinced that if they make it here, all will be forgiven. read more

ILLEGAL INVASION TRANSFORMS SOUTHERN TOWN

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Albertville is a relatively rural community in Northeast Alabama, about 80 miles north of Birmingham. For well over a century this small town of a little over 20,000 was known for one thing – fire hydrants – specifically Mueller Company fire hydrants.

But things have changed in Albertville. Many would say not for the better. One such resident is 42-year-old Sandra Langlois. She would be considered part of the white working class and is unable to find employment. And the reason? “I can’t find a job because I don’t speak Spanish,” she says. read more

Candidate Trump on Immigration – Which One do We Believe

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Trump says he will follow the immigration laws. Actually – no he didn’t. Trump stated in his town hall interview with Sean Hannity: “We wanna follow the laws. You know we have very strong laws…in this country…and I don’t know if you know but Bush and even Obama sends people back. We can be more aggressive in that, but we want to follow the laws.” Want to and will are not synonymous.

Before I go any further, I wish to state that this is not a bash-Trump article. Readers know I am not a Trump guy, but I am not treating Trump any different than I would any candidate, on either side. I am only attempting to be intellectually honest and consistent.

I was all for Trump’s original immigration policy. I’m thankful he brought it up in the first place. And we constitutionalists are still in favor of his original policy. If you are here illegally, you must go – period. There was no time frame attached to his original claim – nor is there a statute of limitations in the myriad of immigration laws on the books.

If The Donald does what he originally said he would do, which earned him the nomination and the dedicated following he has, he would in fact be adhering to the immigration laws. And he would be the first one since Eisenhower in 1954 to do so. On this I defended Trump about this time last year. read more

Mexican Team Gets Home Field Advantage in America

By: the Common Constitutionalist

Anyone who has ever played a sport, or even attended a game understands how important having a home field advantage is. For example, my New England Patriots are virtually unbeatable at home. In fact most teams fare better at home. The players don’t have to interrupt their normal routines and can sleep in their own beds, etc.

But it is the fans which really seem to make the biggest difference. There is nothing more energizing to a player than to have 10’s of thousands of screaming fans on your side – and against the visitors. Just ask the Seattle Seahawks, who fare virtually as well as do the Patriots in their home stadium. Seattle has even coined the phrase, “The Twelve Man,” to pay homage to their fan-base.

There are still other teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers who have both a large traveling fan-base and also, like the Dallas Cowboys, have thousands of converted fans all over the nation.

There is another team however who enjoys an even larger home away from home fan advantage and that is the Mexican National Soccer (futbol) Team. read more

Podcast – HuffPo Loves Government Mandated Overtime – Congresswoman Suffers Swatting Hoax – Zika is Spreading in America

A writer at the Huffington Post is hailing Obama’s latest control issue – mandatory government decreed overtime pay for the private sector. He says it will likely benefit 12 million American families. I disagree.

I speak in segment two of a computer generating swatting hoax perpetrated on a Massachusetts Congresswoman in retaliation for a bill she introduced to prevent online harassment.

The Zika Virus has hit America, but don’t worry – it has nothing at all to do with the huge influx of immigrants streaming across our border. The CDC assures of that. Coincidently, I disagree with this also. read more

One Way for an Illegal Alien to Come Out of the Shadows

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We’ve all heard the identity theft commercials from companies like LifeLock. When you pull up their site, you are treated to the following: “1 in 4 People Have Experienced Identity Theft.”

And they ain’t just whistling Dixie. Several years ago, I too was one of the unfortunate 1 in 4 Identity theft victims. I guess, I should be more specific. Thankfully my identity wasn’t stolen, but one of my bank accounts was hacked and virtually cleaned out in short order. I felt very angry and violated. I still don’t how it occurred, but thank heavens it hasn’t happened again.

So I feel for anyone else who has experienced it. But that was really nothing compared to a true identity theft. Identity theft is as the name describes, where someone can literally become you, for all intents and purposes. And it’s becoming much more common, which is why companies like LifeLock are in demand.

In cases of true identity theft , it can take years, even decades to clear your name completely and in some cases it never happens.

One such hard-case is that of a clean cut, model American citizen from Grand Prairie Texas, Marcus Calvillo who was in his early 20s when his problems began. He is now 46. read more

A Poorly Designed Fence Certainly Can’t Keep Them Out

By: the Common Constitutionalist

You may recall almost exactly three years ago, four politicians, two republicans and two democrats, departed Washington D.C. and headed to Arizona. The four ventured to the Southwest to tour the Mexico/Arizona border.

As Senators John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Jeff Flake and Michael Bennett walked a section of the 18 foot high fence, they witnessed something rather astonishing (at least to them).

No one would have believed it except that Senator McCain tweeted, “Just witnessed a woman successfully climb an 18 ft bollard fence a few yards from us in #Nogales.”

He added: “Border Patrol successfully apprehended her, but incident is reminder that threats to our border security are real.” You don’t say John. Maybe she was just coming over to do a job that an American won’t. Now, who once said that? Oh, that’s right – it was you Johnny.

Still, you’d like to think an incident like that would have had enough of an effect on even the most hardcore democrat to at least cause them to question their pro-illegal stance. But no – not even this harsh reality could convince them we have a “border security” problem. read more

Podcast – Marco Rubio Mega Flip Flop – Mike Huckabee Campaign On Life Support

Marco Rubio is not who he seems. A mere five years ago he was a self-proclaim anti-amnesty, anti-illegal immigration warrior. He said so in a 2010 interview and you’ll hear it for yourself, straight from Rubio’s mouth. So what happen to Marco?

I also discuss poor Mike Huckabee, whose presidential campaign has all but taken its last breath. But who will Huckleberry support? Listen and find out. read more
