Being in favor of legal immigration means being opposed to illegal immigration

Most Democrats want to have it both ways. They want to to have their cake and eat it too. They want to get legal immigrants to vote for them while also supporting illegal immigration through the open borders policies that are rampant in the party now more than ever.

It doesn’t work that way. Illegal immigration hurts legal immigrants more than it hurts anyone else in America. Legal and illegal immigrants often settle in the same areas. They are therefore fighting for the same jobs. They receive the same scrutiny; the prevalence of illegal immigrants forces law enforcement to determine residency status in places where such things are allowed. They fight for the benefits given in schools, hospitals, and public services, but the legal immigrants are paying taxes to fund these things while their illegal immigrant counterparts do not.

This is why an increasing number of legal immigrants are supportive of Republican efforts to stop illegal immigration. They’re the ones getting hurt the most by Democratic policies.

Most Americans on both sides of the political aisle who are opposed to illegal immigration are in favor of legal immigration. We want the “best people,” as President Trump often calls them, to come to our nation and contribute to the prosperity that is abundant and growing in our country. Legal immigrants do amazing things for America. We need them to keep coming.

I’m not so naive to believe everyone who is against illegal immigration is also in favor of legal immigration. There are plenty of Americans who are against any form of immigration, legal or not. Thankfully, that is a very minuscule amount. Mainstream media and their leftist puppeteers would have you believe all conservatives are against legal immigration. This is a bald faced lie.

But we cannot have proper immigration reform until we address the problem of illegal immigration. We need to increase the number of legal immigrants, improve the screening process of those wanting to live permanently in the United States, and attract the types of people who will come here to both contribute to the greater good and assimilate to the American way of life. None of this is possible while illegal immigration is so rampant.

As you prepare to vote on Tuesday, look to the south at the migrant caravans forming weekly and trekking towards our border with the intention of breaching it. Look to Europe, where rampant illegal immigration has fundamentally changed those countries that temporarily embraced open borders policies without understanding the dangers it brought to their citizens. Look at Mexico which is doing many things to offer safe haven for asylum seekers, but is getting rejected by a vast majority who would prefer to take their chances of getting caught in America than to build their lives legally in Mexico.

The economy is booming, but illegal immigration has been made into the real driving force for this election. So be it. Let’s vote the right way for Republicans in favor of legal immigration instead of Democrats in favor of illegal immigration.

Several injured as first wave of migrant caravan clashes with Mexicans in Tijuana

Several injured as first wave of migrant caravan clashes with Mexican citizens in Tijuana

A portion of the first migrant caravan has arrived at the border city of Tijuana, Mexico. Their first night there resulted in violent clashes with residents that resulted in several injuries, including three journalists.

This group of around 750 migrants is the largest to reach the border. City and Baja California state officials set up shelters to accommodate the visitors, but nearly half of the migrants left, preferring to sleep out in the open. Most gathered on the beach near the United States border where they were met by residents demanding they return to the shelters.

“The message to the migrant population is very clear,” Francisco Rueda Gómez, secretary-general of the state of Baja California. “We are providing them with humanitarian support, health care and food, however the need to take into consideration the rules of the shelters so they can coexist in harmony with the local population.”

This marks the first test of how migrants will react to their situation now that the journey is over and the waiting begins. They could be in Tijuana for months. Their first night didn’t go as planned.

Around 3,000 more migrants are on their way to bolster their numbers at the border city.

My Take

Some of the migrants were interviewed by media and seemed confused they weren’t embraced with open arms. They were cheered on in other cities they’d passed through on their way to the border, but Tijuana is reacting differently.

The reason is obvious. It’s easy to cheer on people who are passing through. It’s more difficult to cheer for people who are going to be living near you for an extended period of time, especially when they scoff at the free shelter, food, and services they are being given on their first night.

If things are this bad on the first night with a few hundred migrants arriving, what will happen when they’re reunited with other factions from the original caravan? Things may get ugly very quickly in Tijuana.

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.
