Its not racist to expect immigrants to enter legally or to be concerned about the migrant caravans

The extreme leftist narrative being put forth by mainstream media and Democratic candidates for office is arguably scarier than the massive illegal immigration problem we have in America. This is different from past messages of compassion and security that led to DACA. The new narrative is one that fully embraces open borders.

It’s unfortunate that it came to this based on timing. If it weren’t for the first migrant caravan, illegal immigration wouldn’t be much of a topic for the midterms. Democrats wouldn’t be talking about it except as it’s framed within preserving DACA. Republicans would mention the wall at rallies but otherwise wouldn’t be saying much. A little over a month ago, illegal immigration wasn’t a major election issue.

The caravans have changed this and forced both sides to address it. For Republicans, it’s a welcome addition to the conversation because it takes focus away from their inability to repeal, replace, or even fix Obamacare. For Democrats, they’re being forced into a corner that’s causing them to veer left on the topic so their rhetoric matches the loudest fringe portion of their base that believes opposing President Trump requires an equal but opposite reaction.

Both sides are wrong to an extent.

This might be a good thing for Republicans in the short-term as it pertains to midterm elections, but it has dramatically accelerated the shift in mindset for Democrats. One could argue that the timing was perfect for those pushing for open borders because it forced centrist Democrats to see this as a campaign issue. Politicians are easiest to mold ahead of elections as their views rapidly evolve to match the news cycle.

Time for a brief tinfoil hat moment. The forces pushing for open borders that orchestrated these caravans are using proximity to the election to force moderate Democrats into their camp. They care much less about the results of this election than shifting the mindset on immigration among the impressionable progressives who adamantly oppose President Trump. By creating a situation where Democratic candidates and mainstream media are forced to play the proper foil to President Trump’s predictable responses to the migrant caravans, the orchestrators of the caravans gained years worth or propaganda and open borders indoctrination in a couple of months.

Pro-Immigration, anti-illegal-immigration

It’s safe to take your tinfoil hat off, now.

Most of my family members in the United States are immigrants. I am an immigrant myself; my father was in the U.S. Air Force stationed in the Philippines when he met my mother. I came here when I was 8-months-old.

I am one of millions of conservatives who believe legal immigration is a good thing for our country. When good people are willing to go through the immigration process to become permanent residents of our country, they have the best opportunity to contribute. One of my uncles is an immigrant who was in the U.S. Navy. His wife, my aunt, is an immigrant. She’s a nurse. One of their children is also a nurse. The other works for a U.S. military contractor. They love watching football and having barbecues. They hate paying taxes, but they’ve done so since coming here. Legally.

They contribute. They’re the “best people” that President Trump often describes, the legal immigrants who seized the American dream and give back to our nation as a result.

Illegal immigration steals from them. It belittles the legal immigration process. It takes taxpayer dollars that should be spent on Americans but is instead spent to keep them safe, healthy, and educated. That’s if they’re not caught. If they do get caught, the expense to American taxpayers rises.

Being opposed to illegal immigration is not racism. It isn’t heartless. We are a sovereign nation that must rely on our people, whether born here or legally here as immigrants, to participate in making our own lives, families, and communities better. By doing so, we all take part in making our nation better.

Those who circumvent our laws and accept the benefits of American life are stealing from those who contribute to everything it means to be an American. That’s not a racists statement. It’s a statement of fact. I have no problem with my tax dollars being spent helping people in need and there are millions of American citizens and legal immigrants who fall into that category.

Safety and hope for migrants in the caravans

Part of mainstream media’s narrative is that the conditions the migrants are leaving are so terrible that they need to be helped. I agree that their conditions are horrific. In Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador where most of the migrants originated, their prospects are very dim. Many of them are in grave danger. That’s where the narrative makes sense.

It dissolves the moment we realize the vast majority are passing up on an open invitation to be safe, educated, medically treated, sheltered, and given jobs. Mexico wants them to stay. They have offered them the protections those in the migrant caravan claim to seek. Yet, few are accepting the offer.

They would rather walk an extra thousand+ miles and face a likelihood of being turned away for an opportunity to live in America illegally.

“But, they want to do it legally through the asylum system,” a leftist might point out.

This is a lie. It is well known in these countries that 4 out of 5 applying for asylum do not receive it. That’s acceptable to those in the migrant caravan, not because they like long odds but because they’ve been told how the system works. Asylum seekers are held until they apply. Then, they’re released until their court appearance, which often takes years.

During that time, they’re able to secure a foothold in the United States by living here illegally. Most won’t show up to hear the bad news that their application was denied. They won’t have to. By that time they will have established themselves with a life of living in the United States illegally while being protected by progressives.

It doesn’t matter that 70%-80% within the caravans are young, healthy men. The focus from the media is on the pregnant women trying to get to America before their babies are born. It doesn’t matter that crime is already rampant within the caravan itself. As far as the media is concerned, these harmless migrants aren’t bringing any crime across the border. It doesn’t matter if they’re already getting violent and clashing with Mexican authorities. Even showing such videos is labeled as racist by the left.

If you express valid concerns about any of the migrant caravans trying to enter America at any cost, you’re just a racist in the eyes of the fringe left, their Democratic candidate enablers, and their puppets in mainstream media.

There are real concerns and a majority of Americans on the right and left know it. But the far-left is being given the authoritative voice by mainstream media so the open borders narrative can prevail. Any who voice concerns are instantly labeled a racist.

Are illegal immigrant sex offenders becoming an epidemic?

Are illegal immigrant sex offenders becoming an epidemic

For the last five years, I’ve been visiting the CBP newsroom nearly every day. I also track crimes committed by illegal aliens. Anecdotally, I have seen a sharp increase in both the number of sexual assaults committed by illegal aliens and the number of convicted sexual predators being captured by border patrol.

Last month, I asked a question:

Why are so many child rapists crossing the border illegally?

Even Democrats who are sympathetic of economic migrants seeking a better life must acknowledge that crossing the border illegally makes it easier for child rapists to cross undetected. This isn’t a “right-wing conspiracy.” Based on the facts, this is an indisputable reality.

How many more children must be victimized by illegal aliens before Democrats start giving a damn? They claim to be compassionate, but that compassion does not extend to American citizens and the child victims of these monsters.

We’ve seen increases in the number of sex offenders committing crimes in Montgomery County, Maryland, since July 25. We’ve also seen alarming rise in news reports about sexual assaults committed by illegal immigrants in mainstream media. I say “alarming” not just because of the heinous nature of the crimes but also because it takes a lot to get mainstream media to talk about these things. They generally avoid the topic, even in local media, because it goes against the narrative being pushed by the left.

And yet reports keep coming in…

Border Patrol Agents Arrest Convicted Sex Offender, MS-13 Gang Member

EAGLE PASS, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents in Eagle Pass arrested a convicted sex offender and a confirmed MS-13 gang member this week.

“Agents are making significant criminal arrests along the border and we’ll seek prosecution of these individuals accordingly,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “U.S. Border Patrol agents remain vigilant and committed to safeguarding our communities.”

Agents apprehended Jesus Contreras-Covarrubias, 55, a citizen of Mexico, after he entered the United States illegally. During processing, records checks revealed that he was convicted in 1992 of felony sexual abuse, in Polk County, Oregon.

That was from today. And it wasn’t the only report from the CBP in today’s newsroom about the capture of sexual predators…

Repeat Sex Offender Arrested by Border Patrol in Arizona

TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported sex offender Monday near Sells.

Tucson Sector agents apprehended Adrian Castro-Garcia, a 33-year-old Mexican national illegally present in the country, late Monday evening. Castro-Garcia called 911 after he became lost in the desert after illegally crossing the international border. Agents quickly located him and provided medical attention.

Records checks revealed Castro-Garcia was convicted of sex with a minor in 2013 and again in 2014 by Los Angeles County, California. In both cases he was sentenced to more than 150 days of incarceration.

In both instances, Castro-Garcia was deported after serving time for his conviction.

At some point, the rise in sexual crimes allegedly committed by illegal immigrants will catch the eye of the White House. When it does, we will hopefully see the type of attention given to opioids and vaping. Hopefully.

Supreme victory! Top court backs Trump’s asylum rules change for now

Supreme victory Top court backs Trumps asylum rules change for now

The fight to slow the flow of asylum-seeking migrants (and the criminal illegal aliens who often hide in their midst) gained access to a much-needed rules change Wednesday as the Supreme Court ruled against an injunction placed on the President’s asylum policy. With only two dissenters, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayer, this opens the door for the rule to be applied across the nation.

This is temporary, for now. Lifting the injunction does not make the rule permanent. It only allows the rule to stand while the court hears the whole case against it.

With this rule, asylum seekers can be denied instantly if they did not apply for asylum in the countries through which they traveled to get to the United States. This means nearly everyone from Central America, Africa, or anywhere else who went through Mexico to get to the United States can be denied asylum on the spot if they cannot demonstrate they first applied for asylum in Mexico and were denied.

Mexicans seeking asylum will not be affected by this rule.

The goal of the rule is to close the gap between initial screenings and hearings. Without the rule, the vast majority of those seeking asylum are granted access to a subsequent hearing. But most do not show up for this hearing and those who do are regularly denied because they are mostly economic migrants. Poverty is not a valid reason for granting asylum under U.S. and most international laws.

Asylum-seekers are using the old initial screening rules as a loophole that gets them released into the interior where the vast majority are never seen by the government again unless they’re caught committing other crimes. When they fail to show up for their asylum hearings, a removal order is almost always applied. Rather than playing cat and mouse with hundreds of thousands of migrants, this new rule allows the administration to stop them before they’re released to the interior.

The executive branch is granted broad powers over immigration by the Constitution. Unless the White House fails to make a solid case or a moderate Justice like John Roberts or Brett Kavanaugh decides to go against the President, this rule is likely to be made permanent.

With less hope of gaining access to the interior, this rule is very likely to dissuade many asylum-seekers from making the long journey to the United States border. We can expect border crossing apprehensions to drop in the coming months.

Thomas Homan tears into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Again.

Thomas Homan tears into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Again.

Former acting Director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan is no stranger to dealing with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He took her to school back in July and did so again, as conservative pundit Dan Bongino Tweeted today:

His frustration is evident as he deals with the freshman Congresswoman. She and other radical progressives among Democratic lawmakers have been on a tear trying to abolish ICE, CBP, and any law enforcement agencies who dare to do their job of keeping Americans safe from criminal illegal immigrants.

This latest round of “educate AOC” pointed out that she has a true hatred for the law enforcement agencies that keep us safe. Rather than rail against them constantly, she should be doing her job of legislating. If she has legislative solutions for border security, she has the power to try to get those solutions passed through Congress instead of constantly hate-mongering for social media effect.
