Immigration

Some conservatives are bewildered by Trump’s DACA shift. Others are saying, “I told you so.”

At this point, it’s not even clear what the “deal” is with the alleged DACA deal. Democrats say it’s done and there won’t be a wall attached to it. The White House is saying it isn’t done and it won’t get done without the wall. All the while, both sides are pushing to sell the idea of amnesty to the American people in general and to Trump’s alt-right base in particular.

A mixed bag of conservatives from tried-and-true NeverTrumpers like Caleb Howe at RedState to emphatic supporters of the President until recently like Ann Coulter have lashed out at Trump over reports of him betraying his word. On the campaign trail, he unabashedly proclaimed that DREAMers have to go. Other than a brief period during “the softening” when he tested the Kinder and Gentler waters on immigration, he was consistent with his message. It worked. He’s President.

Now that he’s sitting in the Oval Office, it appears he’s no longer an immigration hardliner. As Jim Geraghty mentioned on National Review, if only someone had warned them…

They did not.

She claims that what the president has been led to believe on illegal immigration — that he must agree to a grand bargain and can’t simply boot out lawbreakers — is pulling him into the trap of passing a comprehensive immigration reform package that includes amnesty.

https://www.redstate.com/absentee/2017/09/14/breaking-trumps-morning-tweet-serious-slap-face-base/Trump’s tweet is the very essence of an amnesty argument. It is the very philosophy upon which the amnesty argument rests. It is exactly the thing his fervent supporters have been arguing against and yelling about for years. Yes, Donald. Yes, people really want to send every illegal home regardless of how they came here.

Conservatives blast Trump for teaming up with Chuck & Nancy on DACA | Alayna Treene, Axios

https://www.axios.com/conservatives-blast-trump-for-reported-daca-deal-2485152549.htmlPresident Trump told reporters Thursday that he won’t “do anything” regarding DACA unless the border wall becomes a reality, not necessarily in the legislation he’s discussing with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to replace DACA, but at some point in the future:

Reactions

With most stories, we like to pull Tweets from a diverse range of people. Big names, small names, and everyone in between fill our Reactions section. For this particular topic, we’re going to leave it all in the hands of Steve Deace from Conservative Review and CRTV. He pretty much nails it across the board.

Final Thoughts

We’ll learn in the coming weeks just how far to the left the President’s immigration stance has migrated. In the meantime, conservatives are wasting no time letting the President know how they feel. He’s demonstrated a willingness to be malleable. Hopefully, this will be one of those occasions if his base starts to turn.

We’re not holding our breath.

Family separation battle will save DACA and lead to citizenship for illegals

Published

on

The latest outrage du jour by the Washington Establishment comes from the news that children are being temporarily separated from their parents as they try to enter the country illegally.

In her latest presentation of the gospel according to Nancy Pelosi, the part-time Catholic and full-time idiot, blasted “all people of faith in our country” for depriving DREAMers of the “respect they deserve” and for “taking babies away from mothers and fathers.” Meanwhile, National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Steve Stivers (R-OH) issued his call for an end to family separations at the border.

In the Senate, GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK) called for an end to the “zero tolerance” immigration policies. On the other side of the aisle, Democrats rushed to the border to grab a handful of election-year photo ops to document what former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro called “state-sponsored child abuse.”

Melania Trump, in addition to four former first ladies, shared how they “hated” to see families separated and called on America to “govern with heart.”

The outrage over family separation is coming from both sides, but it’s fake. These reactions are nothing more than election-year grandstanding by politicians in both parties who have no interest at all at fixing the immigration problem.

As I wrote last week, the GOP-controlled House is already working on an immigration bill that makes DACA permanent and provides a pathway to citizenship for approximately 1.8 million DREAMers. House Speaker Paul Ryan made sure to point out that this legislation also includes a provision ending family separation.

Yesterday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced that he will introduce a bill that ends family separations at the border, which in an amazing bit of coincidence comes at a time when his Democrat opponent for the US Senate, Beto O’Rourke, also called for the separation policy to end. Cruz’s proposal enjoys the unanimous support of Senate Democrats.

For the record, this “for the children” approach to illegal immigration is how we ended up with DACA in the first place. Also note, as this article shows, that Trump is lying when he blames Democrats for the family separation fiasco.

The family separation issue is being used as a primer for the eventual surrender on immigration. And for those who believe that Trump won’t support this surrender, consider this: he allowed Melania to openly oppose his immigration policy, and he recently announced that he’s open to anything that Congress puts on his desk, even if it means doing the opposite of what he promised to get elected.

House proposal makes DACA permanent and grants citizenship to illegals

Published

on

When Donald Trump issued an executive order in Sept. 2017 rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) order issued by Barack Obama, he was cheered by his adoring fans for appearing to keep one of his campaign promises regarding the illegal immigration problem. However, as the old saying goes, appearances can be deceiving.

The reason I call it deceiving is because Trump’s order was merely a technicality—sort of a Rescind-In-Name-Only moment—used to buy the time necessary to make DACA permanent, which has been his “big heart” goal from the beginning.

Of course, any permanent legislation needs to come from Congress, which should have been problematic for Republicans who campaigned for years against Obama’s handling of illegal immigration. But in today’s Republican party—owned and operated by Trump—such commitments have become secondary to the requirement to please Dear Leader.

For example, just days after Trump’s deceptive order, Mitch McConnell went on record in support of negotiation with Democrats and the president—but I repeat myself—to save DACA and create an amnesty plan and eventual citizenship for approximately 1.8 million DREAMers.

Though past attempts have failed, election-season fever is sweeping Washington, so Trump and Republican party loyalists are making another push to get the job done.

After conducting several days of Nancy Pelosi-style meetings behind closed doors, Paul Ryan released an immigration plan yesterday that will legally protect DREAMers while also providing over $23 billion for another Trump promise—a border wall.

Wait a minute! I though Trump promised us that Mexico was going to pay for the wall. I suppose that’s just another in-name-only moment for the New York liberal.

Back to the House proposal. DREAMers can apply for “nonimmigrant status” which is essentially a newfangled way to say visa. The extra visas necessary to handle these requests will be available due to new restrictions that will lower the number of legal immigrant applications, which means legal immigrants will be effectively moved to the back of the line.

But that’s not the worst part.

Once obtained, these visas become the first step on a pathway to citizenship, which means that years down the road, 1.8 million illegals—probably more—will have jumped the line to US citizenship ahead of legal immigrants, despite the rhetoric from Trump and the GOP claiming otherwise.

Though this proposal may or may not pass, making DACA permanent and creating a pathway to citizenship are broken promises. But as I wrote a few days ago, breaking promises has become a job requirement in the age of Trump and today’s GOP.

Illegal alien set to host a communist “People’s Tribunal” outside ICE detention center

Published

on

 

“There has appeared over large parts of the once civilized or semi-civilized world an antique system of justice, masked as something new and progressive. This is the ‘people’s tribunal’…

Communists call this ‘democratic justice’…”

Dorothy Thompson, American Bar Association Journal

 

By now you’re likely aware of the caravan of Central Americans that has arrived at our southern border, hoping to gain entry in to the United States.

The caravan is supported by a coalition of open borders advocacy groups, collectively termed the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project. Coalition members include the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, the American Immigration Council, the Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Three members of the coalition receive funding from George Soros via his Open Society Foundation.

The organizing group on the ground, which is supported by CARA, is Pueblo sin Fronteras (“People without Borders”).

According to research by WND, “Pueblos Sin Fronteras is a member of the National Day Laborer Network, which is affiliated with United for Justice and Peace, Caravan Against Fear, and Freedom Road Socialist Organization.”

A March 23, 2018, press release from Pueblos sin Fronteras stated:

We are a group of people from different nations, religions, genders, gender expressions, and sexual orientations migrating and seeking refuge. We seek to become one collective, supporting each other shoulder to shoulder and demonstrating that by uniting we can abolish borders” (emphasis mine).

On Saturday, May 5th, Pueblos sin Fronteras will be hosting an event outside of the West County immigration detention center in Richmond, CA.

The event is entitled “ICE on Trial: People’s Tribunal at West County”.

Although “People’s Tribunals” have been around for thousands of years, these “trials” remain a favorite means of propaganda for communists old and new.

Sometimes described as lynchings, People’s Tribunals epitomize mod-mentality, utilizing the fanaticism and excitability of “…a mob indoctrinated with its own self-importance and hypnotized by the slogans of its secular-religious credo” (American Bar Association Journal, Vol 40, No 4).

The process is simple:

“The mob is called upon to bear witness, with no challenge to the credibility of the witness if only his testimony serves the end previously ordained” (emphasis mine) (American Bar Association Journal, Vol 40, No 4).

As stated on the group’s Facebook page:

“On Saturday, May 5, 2018, immigrant rights activists, community leaders and people who have been directly affected by the immigrant detention system will gather in front of the West County Detention Facility (WCDF) for a people’s tribunal to hold ICE and the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office accountable for their culture of secrecy and systemic abuse.”

“Survivors of ICE detention will share testimonies about the physical and psychological consequences of being indefinitely caged and abused in intolerable conditions, all while facing the threat of exile from their loved ones and deportation to countries where they may experience further persecution and torture.”

The event will be led by Maru Mora Villalpando, who is an illegal immigrant currently residing in the state of Washington.

In addition to turning US immigration laws into a spectacle, Villalpando, who is affiliated with the NWDC Resistance, has held “People’s Tribunals” at detention centers in the past, including in Tacoma Washington.

In the United States, these “trials” are currently employed as sheer propaganda. As such, a report detailing the findings of the tribunal is generated following the conclusion of said “proceedings.”

You can read the NWDC Resistance’s most recent People’s Tribunal finding by clicking HERE.

Judgments issued by these communist immigration tribunals usually follow the same patterns, as is evident by the below judgments issued by the NWDC Resistance:

Based upon the Testimony taken herein and the Findings of Fact, this Tribunal makes the following recommendations:

  1. Shut down this center and all other immigrant detention centers in the country.
  2. Provide clear and transparent records that reflect all of the abuses that have taken place and continue to take place inside each detention center as well as who has profited from them.
  3. Release all people who are currently detained immediately.
  4. Provide reparations in the form of medical care for both physical and emotional needs for survivors of detention, their families and communities as well as lost wages, lost homes, etc.
  5. Dismantle ICE, CBP, and all other entities that militarize and terrorize communities of color across the country.
  6. Stop the harassment, persecution, and repression of all immigrants and their families.
  7. Once all detention centers are shut down, return this land to their rightful owners, the indigenous communities they were taken from.

Alas, Saturday’s tribunal should certainly be an award-winning show, complete with a – dare I say – token illegal immigrant playing the role of conductor.

In times such as these, it’s best to remain emotionally disengaged, always remembering (in the words of Dorothy Thompson):

“For although communists in non-communist countries are loudest in protesting their legal and constitutional rights, they have no more respect for the Constitution and legal system that protects those rights than they have for the political system that permits them representation. Their object is to undermine and destroy both” (emphasis mine).
