Texas Lt. Gov. is right: Sanctuary cities are immoral

Published

on

It is a tragedy that eight people perished from heat exhaustion and lack of water in the back of a tractor-trailer truck in San Antonio. Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick believes that it was a preventable tragedy.

Sanctuary cities entice people to believe they can come to America and Texas and live outside the law. Sanctuary cities also enable human smugglers and cartels. Today, these people paid a terrible price and demonstrate why we need a secure border and legal immigration reform so we can control who enters our country. We continue to pray for the families and friends of the victims.

I agree with him. Illegal immigration of this kind is strongly correlated with a few things. First, the belief that there’s a path to becoming legal in America; and second, the belief that getting to America is worth the risk because of “sanctuary cities.”

Statistics can easily lie, but in this case, they don’t. Southwest border crossing arrests are down by 76 percent, according to numbers released in April.

Overall apprehensions by the Border Patrol dropped to just 11,129 in April, according to numbers released Tuesday, marking the lowest monthly total for any month in decades.

The number of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children nabbed at the border dropped below 1,000 — a level not seen since before the surge that bedeviled President Obama during most of his second term.

Obama’s policies encouraged Guatemalans, El Salvadorans and Hondurans to make their way to the U.S. border. The message sent to those countries is that the U.S. will give a permiso to those who make it into the country. Of course, criminals run the human smuggling rings that ferry people through Mexico and over the border. Border “Mules” frequently force immigrants to carry drugs or other illegal goods into the U.S.

Enhanced enforcement in the southwest moved much of the immigration business to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, where the unfortunate truckload of illegal immigrants came over only for eight of them to die in a Walmart parking lot.

Trump’s continuance of Obama’s terrible DACA policy once again encouraged Central Americans to flock to our border, despite the election rhetoric. Once again, the numbers speak for themselves.

It shows that during the first three months of this year, USCIS has approved 107,524 DACA renewals and 17,275 new applications. Of the 90 days in the January to March period, 70 of them have been on Trump’s watch, or about 78 percent. Assuming a constant rate of processing, that would mean Donald Trump has given access to work permits, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, and more to 13,436 illegal aliens who had not already been amnestied by Obama. That’s an average of 192 new illegals a day granted amnesty by Donald Trump.

By itself, DACA isn’t enough to start a new immigrant flood. But combined with sanctuary cities, counties and states, like all of California; Aurora, Colorado; Travis and Dallas Counties, Texas, and liberal enclaves all over the nation, it creates a strong reason for immigrants to come in…and some die trying.

If San Francisco and other cities really wanted to give humanitarian, moral sanctuary to illegals, they’d charter busses and run their own border crossing operations. They’d take these activities out of the hands of criminals. They can’t claim “but that’s illegal,” because they’re already breaking the law by offering sanctuary.

Going half way only enables criminals and predators, while enticing victims to submit themselves. How can these sanctuary proponents believe that they’re acting in the best interests of those who come to America illegally?

It would be more humanitarian for Trump’s wall to be built–for America to have an impenetrable southern border. At least then people contemplating the journey would realize the peril and not downplay it.

Sanctuary cities and those who run them are complicit in enabling criminals whose primary motive is making money, without regard to the lives in which they traffic. By enabling those criminals, they are active participants in the deaths of those eight victims loaded like cattle in a trailer.

Dan Patrick got it right, and I hope Texas passes a law making those liberal politicians accountable for their immoral actions.

Dr. Michael Brown on Donald Trump fulfilling Bible prophecy with Jerusalem announcement

Dr Michael Brown on Donald Trump fulfilling Bible prophecy with Jerusalem announcement

Many in the Jewish world believe that Jerusalem must be united and a Third Temple built before the Messiah can come. Christians have a similar interpretation of prophecy, except that it pertains to the 2nd coming of the Messiah. Dr. Michael Brown has perspectives on both ideas as a Messianic Jewish believer in Jesus Christ.

In this video, he discusses whether or not President Trump announcing recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel fulfills Bible prophecy. Spoiler: He doesn’t know, but he points to those who believe so. He also points out the hypocrisy of Muslim leaders attacking Jews in Israel for what a gentile in the United States announced.

Inside the Mitch McConnell circus

Inside tMitch McConnell circus

The sad thing is, it is truly a circus.  The grassroots want Mitch McConnell out of the Senate, and he is telling loud and clear that the answer is No.  It’s no different than the “mouse” trying to get the “wolf’ in their place and make a break for it.  Hey, it’s simply just cold outside you know.

There is a group of conservatives that will always protest the likes of McConnell and they were around when Hoover, Ford, and Bush 41 screwed things up.  There just simply is not enough of them.  For real change to happen all Republicans must unite with the good guys and gals that work hard to do what is right, and winning elections regardless is not one of them.

https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/king-mitch-is-the-star-of-the-stupidest-show-on-earthWhat a circus! Everything to tantalize the senses from hearing the pompous moralites, to witnessing a Goldman Sachs carnival barker, to smelling the odor coming from the trunk-to-tail-linked highest echelons of the Republican Party. Listen to that calliope play!

And sex? We got it. Anything you want, allegations abound, and we can spend months talking about it, putting everyone’s focus on it, tweeting hot takes about it — all to make the race a sideshow about who is more moral and ethical. Because that’s how you put on the stupidest show on earth.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy eyeing 2020 with Puerto Rico visit

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy eyeing 2020 with Puerto Rico visit

The newly-elected, progressive Governor of New Jersey (ex-Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy) is already eyeing 2020.

Murphy led a delegation yesterday to visit Puerto Rico, three months after Hurricane Maria. Digging further, a press release listed an extensive delegation including some curious choices, like appointed health officials from small towns with heavy Spanish-speaking (though not necessarily Puerto Rican-heavy) populations. It also includes the head of a leading Northeastern utility, PSE&G.

Last I checked, PSE&G has absolutely no business in Puerto Rico.

Ostensibly, this is for “relief efforts.” But no source document I could find, including that mentions actual relief efforts. No mention of what’s being brought down there. I suspect that’s because they probably aren’t bringing any relief supplies, no medicine, no equipment. Nothing. It’s just meetings, optics, maybe “fact finding.”

It should be obvious what’s really going on here.

Mainland public officials are going to Puerto Rico to recruit people — Puerto Ricans are birthright American citizens, have been since 1917 — to move to the mainland.

Upon arrival, those Puerto Ricans can legally claim “domicile” and register to vote (that is, if they were citizens to begin with) within any of our 50 states.

But Murphy’s team is looking to pack his state — a deep blue New Jersey which went for Hillary by a 55%-42% margin last year — and other likely settlement destinations (count on them also being blue states) with even more likely Democratic voters.

Murphy just got elected by a double-digit margin in New Jersey, ending eight years of term-limited and integrity-limited Republican Chris Christie’s bad beach manners. He does not take office until January 16, 2018.

Murphy does not need more help in re-election.

This is about the next presidential election.

The progressives are already packing the voter rolls.

But this trip is, very likely, using public funds, whether from Murphy’s transition budget or elsewhere. Given New Jersey’s legendary and current budget problems,

Call this what it is: A taxpayer-funded, Democratic voter-registration drive.

This guy is running for President. He’s already working on votes.

And bet that his delegation is recruiting Puerto Ricans to move to the mainland. Of course, those Puerto Ricans — already citizens — would become eligible to vote in the next Presidential election.

How that use of taxpayer money is legally suspect. These expenditures are subjects that are within the jurisdiction of the Justice Department (which has used its discretion to investigate matters of far less potential impact) to inquire.
