Being in favor of legal immigration is not racist

Published

on

I am a legal immigrant. It is truly insulting when people tell me my stance against illegal immigration is racist. But I don’t blame many of these people for feeling this way. Society has been systematically turned to the very blatant falsehood that opposition to illegal immigration is opposition to immigration itself.

You will rarely hear me blame anything outside of the individual or family when it comes to something that is a personal responsibility. For example, I don’t blame schools for churning out leftists. I blame parents for not preparing their children for the indoctrination they’re going to receive at school. But when it comes to the topic of illegal immigration, I have a tendency to give most people a pass for believing it’s racist to expect people to utilize the system that allows for legal immigration. It’s hard to fight against the propaganda from leftist mainstream media, the aforementioned indoctrination they’re getting in school, and the incessant talking points uttered by leftist politicians and activists.

That’s why it’s so important to express this view. Stated simply, my opposition to illegal immigration is primarily due to the harm it does to legal immigrants. Said another way, by being in favor of legal immigration, I must oppose illegal immigration. The legal immigration system is greatly harmed by those who circumvent the process. Moreover, illegal immigrants do the greatest harm to individuals, families, and communities that are comprised mostly of legal immigrants.

It’s very confusing that those who are allegedly on the side of immigrants support policies that do them the most harm. Illegal immigrants come in many forms. Most want to come to America for greater opportunities and more safety than they have in the home nations. Some want to engage in criminal activities and are willing to kill American citizens before getting deported again. Others come with the sole intention of doing harm to Americans. In all three cases, it is legal immigrants who are most often harmed by these illegal immigrants.

The latter two are obvious examples of illegal immigrants harming legal immigrants. The first group, those who come to America for opportunity and safety, also harm legal immigrants directly. They compete with them for jobs, services, and space in schools. They often do these things without paying taxes, so not only do legal immigrants have to compete with them, they also have to subsidize their needs through their tax dollars.

Social justice warriors can call me racist until they’re blue in the face, but that doesn’t change the fact that their actions and the policies they support do real harm to legal immigrants. I want to increase legal immigration. I want standards that allow the United States to bring in properly vetted foreign nationals who can improve their own lives while simultaneously aiding in making our country a better place. I want to stop the greatest threat to legal immigrants, namely the open borders that allow illegal immigrants to circumvent our laws and take from legal immigrants.

Calling me a racist for supporting legal immigration is a farce. I would be more accurate if I said those who support legal immigration by opposing border security are treasonous against our sovereign nation. I wouldn’t say that to someone, but if I did, it would be more accurate than calling me a racist for my beliefs.

    There’s a rather famous sonnet on a plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty containing the line “I lift my lamp beside the Golden Door”.
    Libs love to quote the poem without ever actually understanding what it ~really~ says.
    The Golden Door is a portal that must be passed through, not forced open or battered off its hinges and then trampled into the dirt. The Golden Door is the entry point to such places as the modern equivalent of Ellis Island, the starting point for the process of ~lawful~ entry.

    The presence of a ~door~ also implies that there ~ Is~ A Wall, as a door hanging in space might make an amusing comic device for Willie Coyote or the introduction to The Twilight Zone, but in real life is absolutely ridiculous and serves no functional purpose.
    Think about it.

Tomi Lahren, Jesse Watters discuss securing portions of border where walls are impractical

Tomi Lahren Jesse Watters discuss securing portions of border where walls are impractical

Anyone who considers the illegal immigration situation as it pertains to our southern border understands how a border wall makes sense in many areas. Some refuse to accept this notion for political reasons, but common sense tells us where there’s a wall, one of three things will happen. Illegal immigrants will either try to breach the wall in some way, decide not to attempt to breach because of the wall, or find areas where there is no wall.

This last idea is the one that border patrol agents expect the most, which is why a heavy majority of them are in favor of building more wall along the border. It will make them more effective at their jobs because it allows them to put more focus on areas where illegal border crossings are more likely to happen. Right now, the lack of a wall in so many areas means they are spread thin. Moreover, it means they are less likely to capture those who aren’t just entering for the sake of being caught and applying for asylum. When there’s less wall, the actual criminals who want to come into the United States are having an easier time because of a lack of a barrier.

Last night, Jesse Watters interviewed Tomi Lahren about her coverage along the Arizona border. She traveled with and interviewed border patrol agents in the area, seeing the environment in which they’re tasked to protect Americans. They noted how things would be easier for them if there was a wall in some places because it would allow them to focus their efforts on smaller areas of land that aren’t covered by a wall.

It’s time for Democrats to stop listening to the political demons in their head and start listening to the experts who understand the problems and solutions along the southern border. If they don’t, they’ll continue to empower the cartels who currently control the border.

President declares national emergency. Now the craziness begins.

President declares national emergency Now the craziness begins

As expected, President Trump signed the omnibus to keep the government from a second shutdown. Then, as expected, he declared a national emergency at the southern border to allow his administration to free up funds for the building of a wall at our southern border.

Now, the expectations shift to how Democrats will attack this move. During his announcement of the national emergency, the President noted he’s aware of how the process is going to go: lawsuits, appeals, more lawsuits, more appeals… and eventually it will be decided by the Supreme Court.

Reactions on social media were mixed.

My Take

From here, it goes insane. It should be noted the President made what many are considering a mistake when he said he “didn’t have to” declare an emergency but wanted the wall built faster. That seems like grounds to attack the declaration itself.

Losers all around: Untangling the border bill that benefits literally zero Americans

Losers all around Untangling the border bill that benefits literally zero Americans

The Senate and House just put a bill on the President’s desk that he intends to sign. This bill will keep the government funded for most of the year and has many components worth discussing within its 1200 pages. For this discussion, let’s look specifically at the border security components because there seems to be losers across the board without a single winner in sight… at least not from this country.

First, let’s look at the two parties.

Democrats lose the political clout that would have come from a bipartisan agreement to fund the border wall. While most on the left see it as a win that they were able to put together a bill that snuck in so many atrocious immigration loopholes (which we’ll cover below), those loopholes will be used to demonstrate how bad their border policy really is.

But it would all be worth it to them if the wall never got built, at least politically speaking for 2020. The wall is President Trump’s post-midterm achievement if he can get a good chunk of it built, so stopping him from doing so would have been a win. There’s still a chance it can be a win for the Democrats if the White House doesn’t play their cards right. The national emergency declaration may or may not get the wall started before the election, so they’ll need to invoke 10 U.S.C. 284 to get it going sooner rather than later.

Of course, the biggest loss for Democrats is their own policies. It may not have the immediate negative impact necessary to affect them in 2020, but it will have a negative impact nonetheless. As drug cartels and criminal illegal immigrants benefit from the insane policies they put in the bill, the only defense the Democrats will have is that a majority of Republicans backed it as well.

Republicans lose because this deal demonstrates their weakness. They were too weak to fight the border wall battle when they had control of the House, Senate, and White House simultaneously. There’s no reason to expect them to have grown a backbone since the midterms, and this bill proves they did not.

They folded on the border wall dollars. They folded on the restrictions placed on the border wall itself. They folded on the number of beds set aside for detained illegal immigrants. They folded on the allowance of what can only be construed as amnesty for future illegal border crossing unaccompanied minor sponsors (it’s a mouthful, but we’ll get into those protections a bit later).

In short, they folded on nearly everything and put the President in a position where his only viable option was to declare the national emergency. Sadly, it means the GOP not only accomplished nothing since the shutdown began, but also demonstrated the shutdown could have easily been avoided by simply caving then instead of waiting two months to cave.

Now, let’s look at everyone other than the parties themselves.

President Trump loses because this deal makes the shutdown look meaningless. It also exposes him to the wrath of conservatives who are both unhappy with the deal itself and infuriated by the massive overreach the national emergency declaration represents.

The only possible way for him to make it out of this mess with chances still intact for a reelection win are if three very specific things happen:

  1. He has to get a good chunk of the wall built before the election.
  2. Crime and illegal immigration numbers must go down before the election.
  3. Somehow, the negative components of this deal cannot come back to haunt him, though that seems unlikely at this point because the negatives are so numerous and utterly horrendous.

But the worst loss of all for the President is that it will be very hard for him to spin the use of a national emergency and creative appropriations to build a wall when he said literally hundreds of times that Mexico was going to pay for it. Yes, this catchy line helped him win the primaries and possibly even the general election, but it’s turning into such an inaccurate campaign promise that it can’t even be called a broken promise anymore. At this point, it appears to be a bald-faced campaign lie.

Most of all, the American people lose, This will be demonstrated on so many levels over the next couple of years that it will be hard to keep track of every instance that this bill makes us less safe, wastes our money, steals from our prosperity potential, and undercuts our sovereignty.

I’ll let Twitter explain this even further:

And the winner is…

Drug cartels, criminal illegal immigrants, and anyone willing and able to take advantage of Washington DC’s stupidity are the only winners from the border omnibus deal. National emergency declarations cannot take away from how bad this is. In fact, it may make it worse.
