A Day Without Illegal Immigrants

You may have heard that yesterday was nationwide, “A Day Without Immigrants” day.

NPR Reported  that, “In cities around America, thousands of construction companies, restaurants and other businesses are bracing for ‘A Day Without Immigrants,’ a combination boycott/strike that highlights the contributions of immigrants to U.S. business and culture.”

“The movement is a response to President Trump’s immigration agenda, which includes a pledge to seal the U.S. border with Mexico and a travel ban on citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries (which is now on hold),” NPR added.

Demonstrations in many major cities throughout the U.S. took place. By sheer coincidence, most of the cities involved, just happen to be of the sanctuary persuasion.

Interestingly, and 100% predictably – of the dozen or so articles I read regarding the “massive” walkouts, from construction companies to schools and restaurants, not one even attempted to make a distinction between legal and illegal immigration. read more

Illegals – We Know Where They are – So Let the Deportations Begin

The latest from Pew Research  is that there are approximately 11.1 millions illegal aliens in America presently. That’s 3.5 percent of our total population.

Of that 11.1 million, Pew states that 61 percent of them reside in just 20 cities, or metropolitan areas. Of those cities, Austin, Texas has the fewest at 100,000, while metro areas like New York City and Los Angeles take the top two spots. That 61% equates to 6.8 million illegals concentrated in a relatively small area.

Surprisingly, the cities of San Francisco and Oakland only came in at number 11. They’ve really got to work on getting their numbers up. They accounted for only 240,000 criminal aliens. Frankly that is an embarrassment for the poster city of undocumented democrats.

The Washington DC/Arlington/Alexandria, Va. area came in seventh at 400,000. Of course I’m sure they need every one of them to cook, clean and mow the lawns of thousands of federal government employees, lobbyists, Senators and Congressman. read more

So Who is Really in Charge of Immigration

It’s obvious and has been demonstrated repeatedly as of late, that the Democrat Party cares less for American citizens than it does for foreign visitors and illegal immigrants.

The Party has also exhibited a willingness to flaunt or outright break the law in doing so.

Being that the Common Constitutionalist is not an actual Constitutional scholar, I cannot say for certain if President Trump’s temporary ban of people from seven foreign nations is or is not Constitutional – anymore than I can say Obama’s was. But I can read…and think.

However, the larger and longer lasting issue is that of illegal immigration, and States and cities refusal to follow federal law. However some would consider this a gray area.

If one were to look to the Constitution, which should always be first consulted, we would see that the word immigration doesn’t appear anywhere. What does is Article I, Section 8, clause 4, which states that, “Congress shall have the Power To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization…” read more

Podcast – Leftist Mayors Whine About Trump Immigration Policy – and So Does Mark Zuckerberg

Leftist Mayors of America’s Major Cities are upset with president Trump over his order to clamp down on “Sanctuary Cities.” Frankly, the entire left is nuts over it. Ain’t it grand?!

Many Mayors are vowing to fight the feds and some on left are calling th

e possible withholding of federal funds as extortion. Funny, but I don’t ever recall these same lefties mentioning anything about Obama’s many threats to extort States if they didn’t comply with his unlawful wishes.

And Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has weighed in on Trump’s Immigration Orders – so I guess there’s nothing more to be said – but I’ll say it anyway. Listen to find to out just what nonsense Mr. Facebook spewed. 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

Liberal Hypocrisy Never Takes a Day Off

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Now that Donald Trump has become the president elect, we should assume no shortage of leftist double standards to come. As the republicans will now have control of the legislative and executive branches, the expectation is that they will use the same governmental procedures to roll back Obama’s oppressive agenda items that the dems used to implement them.

From the democrats, we should then fully anticipate cries of foul play. As Trump rolls back the illegal executive actions thrust on us by Obama, the left will inexplicably conclude that he has not the authority to just write decrees. We’ll have to wait and see on that, but one such double-standard has already surfaced, months before Trump taking office.

I take you back to last spring, when the State of North Carolina had the nerve to pass a law stating that if you were born a male, you must use only the male restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa. I still cannot believe that was and is controversial. To the left however, anything which attempts to maintain American or even reasonable human values is somehow abhorrent, and must be disassembled or destroyed in favor of the lunatic fringe. read more
