‘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.

Dan Crenshaw: Only six Democrats voted to pay federal employees affected by shutdown

Dan Crenshaw Only six Democrats voted to pay federal employees affected by shutdown

While most were drinking the mainstream media Kool-Aid that Republicans and President Trump are responsible for keeping paychecks out of the hands of federal employees affected by the government shutdown, a bill was brought to the House floor that would have paid them their first paycheck of 2019.

It failed. Despite six Democrats voting in favor of the bill, the Democratic majority shot it down, preventing their political pawns – the 800,000 people directly affected by the government shutdown – from getting paid.

Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) pointed it out and received a good amount of interactions on Twitter, but most in mainstream media refused to run this narrative-busting truth.

It’s crystal clear to anyone paying attention that their anti-wall rhetoric is driven by the good optics they’re getting from the press. If the people would stop being sheep and listen to that quiet voice of reason in the back of their minds, they’d realize two things:

  1. Democrats don’t oppose the wall. They oppose giving the President a win. They will keep the government shutdown going as long as possible and any attempts to help the people affected by it will be shot down.
  2. All of the false claims about the wall are politically motivated outside of the realm of common sense. The latest talking point, that the wall will be ineffective, is contradicted by every statistic that compares illegal immigration with or without a wall.

This is clear proof the Democrats have no desire to help the people if it means taking away their leverage on the President. Given the choice between paying federal employees or harming the President politically, they chose political expediency.

Local communities giving support to border agents during shutdown

Local communities giving support to border agents during shutdown

One of the most prominent stories the media has been pushing since the beginning of the partial government shutdown is that services are being hampered by federal employees calling in sick in large numbers. They are not getting paid (though they’ll receive back pay when the shutdown ends), so whether they call in sick or not makes no difference to their bottom line. The TSA in particular has been highlighted as long wait times at airports hamper travelers.

There’s one government agency affected by the shutdown that doesn’t appear to be having the same problem, and local residents and businesses are being partially credited for making this possible. Border patrol agents aren’t calling in sick or taking leave any more than usual, according to a report by Anna Giaritelli at Washington Examiner:

Locals help border agents survive the shutdown with free meals, zero-interest loans

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/locals-help-border-agents-survive-the-shutdown-with-free-meals-zero-interest-loans“Although I don’t have official agency numbers, it is my understanding that call-outs or sick leave is at or near the same levels as in similar times in years past,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd wrote in an email Monday. “We certainly aren’t experiencing the same level of call-outs as TSA. As far as I’m aware, and again that is without official numbers, we have the same workforce reporting for duty under the shutdown as we regularly do under normal circumstances.”

The kindness and respect residents and businesses are giving to border patrol agents isn’t just a sign of support for those who keep the border secure. It’s a testament to the concept of philanthropy being more powerful than government. It’s often said that government does the job that people won’t. In reality, it’s the people who do the jobs the government can’t. Moreover, it’s the people who are able to do these jobs better than the government in most situations.

While I would never condone the use of civilians for our military defense or even border patrol, there’s one very clear example of how private solutions are beating government solutions, and oddly enough it comes from far-left San Francisco. Unlike most airports in the country, the lines at San Francisco International Airport are no longer or slower than before the government shutdown. This is because their security agents are not federal employees. TSA contracts with Covenant Airport Security. Their agents are getting paid through the shutdown.

My Take

As the government shutdown drags on, we should all be thankful that border patrol continues to do their job and that local communities are pitching in to keep these brave men and women taken care of until DC gets its act together.

Steven Crowder talks to wall protesters with predictable results

Steve Crowder talks to wall protesters with predictable results

The intolerant left really wants to be heard. They just don’t want to listen. That’s not unexpected, as the entire wall issue is one that drives people to contradiction. We saw this in clear display as conservative funnyman Steven Crowder took a second stab at “Build the Wall, Change My Mind.”

There were many telling exchanges as he approached a crowd of protesters who had gathered, holding signs and chanting about racism, tolerance, and immigrants being welcome. One particularly interesting exchange happened when Crowder talked to a woman holding a sign that read, “Immigrants are Welcome, Change My Mind.”

Unfortunately, the sign was a lie. She wasn’t really asking to have her mind changed. She continuously described how she felt uncomfortable talking to Crowder, which is understandable considering he had a mic and there was a camera, but it’s still disingenuous to hold a sign that says “change my mind” when there was no willingness to have a dialogue about the issue.

The difference between conservatives who want a wall and progressives who don’t is that many who support the wall are willing to have civil discourse on the issue. Many who oppose the wall must rely on false accusations of racism to make their point.
