‘Undocumented citizens?’ AP invents a new term for ‘illegal alien’

Undocumented citizens AP invents a new term for illegal alien

The AP referred to Chicago students as “undocumented citizens” in a story published Tuesday about Mayor Rahm Emanel’s response to Trump’s DACA rollback.

Emanuel spoke as Chicago Public Schools marked the first day of classes Tuesday. The mayor told students at Solorio Academy High School they “are welcome in the city of Chicago.” The Chicago Sun-Times reports that school officials say about a third of the school’s students are undocumented citizens. Emanuel said Chicago schools “will be a Trump-free zone.”

For the record, there’s no such thing as an “undocumented citizen,” unless the AP means a naturalized citizen whose papers have been lost, or a natural-born U.S. citizen who was born in the woods and never documented.

But that’s not what they meant. They meant “illegal alien.” It’s just another subtle move by a biased press who want America to have an open borders policy and call everyone in the word an American citizen.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see this new term start popping up in the media. We must nip it in the bud. People who are here illegally, under DACA or not, are not citizens. Green card holders are not citizens. Calling them “undocumented citizens” is a slap in the face to every immigrant who stands up before a judge and swears the oath of citizenship.

The AP, single-handedly, has cheapened every American’s citizenship. Nip it in the bud.

Luis Cobos-Cenobio, the star of the Arkansas dashcam shootout, is an illegal immigrant

Luis Cobos-Cenobio the star of the Arkansas dash cam shootout is an illegal immigrant

It’s an odd headline. The lede in this story should the shocking dashcam footage showing suspect Luis Cobos-Cenobio firing on police who were trying to pull him over. Unfortunately, immigration status is either buried or ignored altogether by mainstream media, so we thought it was necessary to point out up front that the man who allegedly tried to shoot and kill police officers is an illegal immigrant.

You can read the details at Fox News, one of the only outlets I’ve found so far that mentions his immigration status:

Dashcam video shows moment illegal immigrant suspect opens fire on Arkansas police officer

https://www.foxnews.com/us/dashcam-video-shows-moment-illegal-immigrant-suspect-opens-fire-on-arkansas-police-officerCobos-Cenobio has been jailed on $500,000 bond, and has had a detainer placed on him by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency spokesperson confirmed to Fox News.

Cobos-Cenobio has been charged with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terroristic act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police.

If he is convicted on any or all of these charges, he’s going to jail for a long time. There’s no way to know at this point how many Americans he’s harmed in the past. Sadly, as a criminal illegal immigrant, there’s no reason for him to be here in the first place.

Mainstream media doesn’t want you to know that part of the story, though. Some went so far as to avoid the topic altogether.

For example, this article from ABC News is nearly 400-words in length and never even hints at his immigration status. Many stories simply noted as deep into the article as possible that he had a “federal hold” or “detainer request” without indicating that almost certainly means he’s here illegally.

Mainstream media is desperate to bury or cover up anything that pertains to illegal immigrants. This story, with its amazing and terrifying video, was too “good” for them to pass up. That didn’t stop them from hiding his immigration status.

Senator who pushes negative perception of ICE badgers nominee over negative perception of ICE

Senator who pushes negative perception of ICE badgers nominee over negative perception of ICE

Only in Washington DC is it okay for someone to complain about a problem they created, then attack someone else for not fixing the problem. It happens on both sides of the aisle but Democrats have become especially adept at it lately. Case in point: Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA).

As one of the frontrunners to go against President Trump in 2020, the California Senator has built much of her short career in DC around attacks on ICE. She demonizing the law enforcement agency any time the topics of border security, deportations, or illegal immigration come up. She has called for the agency to be dismantled and questions anything they do to fulfill their mission of keeping Americans safe.

That’s why it’s so disgusting to hear her badger Ronald Vitiello, President Trump’s nominee to lead ICE, over the topic of negative perceptions surrounding the agency. She went so far as to try to draw parallels between ICE and the Ku Klux Klan during his confirmation hearings.

“Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels?” she asked.

“I do not see any parallels,” Vitiello replied. “That puts ICE in the same category as the KKK. Is that what you’re asking me?”

Harris, a former prosecutor and California Attorney General before becoming a Senator, seemed to be trying to trap the nominee into admitting that ICE is perceived by illegal immigrants the same way the KKK was perceived in the past.

Vitiello should have told her if those perceptions do exist, it’s because of rhetoric she and other Democrats have been spewing since President Trump took office.

Four months ago, the Senator said this:

New litmus test? Dems demand elimination of ICE amid immigration furor | Fox News

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-litmus-test-dems-demand-elimination-of-ice-amid-immigration-furorOn the West Coast, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who has been floated as a 2020 Democratic contender, said that the U.S. should consider “starting from scratch” for ICE — though stopped short of calling to abolish it.

“There’s no question that we’ve got to critically re-examine ICE and its role, and the way that it is being administered, and the work it is doing,” Harris said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. “And we need to probably think about starting from scratch.”

It’s quite rich for the Senator to push anti-ICE rhetoric onto the public, then ask a nominee to lead ICE if he’s aware the law enforcement organization is perceived like the Ku Klux Klan. GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel called it her 2020 campaign launch.

Joni Ernst warns of challenges to push President Trump’s agenda after losing the House

Joni Ernst warns of challenges to push President Trumps agenda after losing the House

Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), the newly elected Republican Senate Conference vice chairman, pointed out two things that are going to be big challenges over the next two years: border security and making the tax cuts permanent. Both centerpieces of President Trump’s agenda will be difficult to achieve now that Democrats control the House of Representatives.

Republicans were able to get the tax cuts they wanted, but without control of the House it will be nearly impossible to make them permanent in the next two years.

They were unable to get border security pushed forward in the first two years of the administration despite having control of the House and the Senate during that stretch. Most notably, they failed to make significant progress towards building a border wall between Mexico and the United States.

With Democrats controlling the House, getting it done now will be nearly impossible.

My Take

It’s indefensible that Republicans didn’t do more for border security when they had the chance. Two years is plenty of time to push through legislation, but their focus on three failed Obamacare repeals drew their attention away.

Don’t get me wrong. Obamacare repeal is extremely important and arguably the reason they were able to win in 2010-2016. But it’s failure is no excuse for delaying border security measures. Now, they’re delayed indefinitely.

In those rare periods when a party controls the House, Senate, and White House, they need to pack all the legislation they believe America needs. Republicans ignored the border and now Americans will pay the price.
