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.

Nevada to seek death penalty for illegal alien Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman

Nevada to seek death penalty for illegal alien Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman

Prosecutors in two counties where an illegal immigrant allegedly murdered four people are seeking the death penalty for his crimes. North Nevada was shaken by the string of murders until the alleged killer was apprehended by law enforcement in January.

Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, 20, was arrested January 19, 2019, by Washoe County Sheriff’s department and charged with multiple offenses while prosecutors and investigators worked on charging him for the four murders. They rarely invoke the death penalty but the severity and heinous nature of the crimes warrant capital punishment, according to prosecutors.

“We reserve the death penalty for the worst of the worst,” Washoe County District Attorney Chris Hicks said last Thursday. “We use it sparingly.”

The illegal immigrant from El Salvador is accused of shooting and killing Gerald David, 81, and his wife, Sharon, 80, in Reno and Connie Koontz, 56, and Sophia Renken, 74, in Gardnerville.

My Take

Just as traffic fines are doubled in construction zones, so too should penalties be increased when illegal immigrants commit crimes. His immigration status was not taken into account, but the crimes themselves were enough for prosecutors to seek the death penalty.

While wall funding jumps through hoops, let’s address Catch and Release immediately

While wall funding jumps through hoops lets address Catch and Release immediately

Last week, the ICE Union sent a scathing letter to the President blaming the administration’s policies for essentially neutering them and turning them into paperwork handlers. Instead of stopping illegal immigrants, their jobs have been relegated to capturing illegal immigrants and giving them paperwork that says they’re free to move about the country.

Catch and Release is in full effect, more now than ever before.

While the debate rages over President Trump’s national emergency to fund the border wall, we’re stuck in limbo. It’s time to get out of limbo and start working on solutions to the problem at hand. Illegal immigration is at its highest level in decades despite GOP control of the House, Senate, and White House for two years. They did nothing, absolutely nothing to address the real issues at the border, including:

  • The wall, of course
  • Legislative loopholes that protect illegal immigrants to the point they often have better rights than American citizens
  • Sanctuary policies that not only enable but encourage criminal illegal aliens to do their thing without fear of deportation
  • The horrible situation border patrol and ICE agents are in where they’re not allowed to do their jobs because they don’t have the resources to keep Americans safe

This last bullet is the one that needs immediate attention. As noted by John Binder over at Breitbart, Catch and Release is in overdrive:

While the Catch and Release program continues, the experts project that illegal border crossings for this calendar year will be more than three times what they were in 2017 and nearly double last year’s total crossings. The projection predicts there to be more than 840,000 illegal border crossings this year, though Nielsen predicts about 900,000 crossings for the year.

This year, there will be more illegal border crossings than the entire population of San Francisco. It’s not just the wall. We need to empower ICE to do their jobs. End Catch and Release now.

Greyhound changes policy to prevent ICE from dropping off thousands of migrants in their stations

Greyhound changes policy to prevent ICE from dropping off thousands of migrants in their stations

For years, it’s been standard operating procedure for U.S. authorities to drop off illegal immigrants at bus stations when the local charitable organizations are too full to accept more of them. But the recent dramatic increase in the number of migrants crossing the border has forced Greyhound Lines Inc. to change its policies. Now, only those with a ticket are allowed to enter their stations.

“Our priority is to safely and efficiently get customers to their destinations,” Greyhound spokeswoman Crystal Booker said in a statement. She cited an “unprecedented increase in individuals” without tickets entering their stations as a reason for the new policy.

My Take

There are plenty of people to blame for this. First and foremost, the migrants themselves, driven by leftist propaganda and encouragement by open borders progressives, must take the bulk of the blame. They were told they would get taken care of if they could bypass the legal immigration and asylum request systems, and they believed it. Second, the President’s administration has been woefully inept at handling the border security crisis. Some will point to the lack of a wall and blame Democrats for the problem, but the government shutdown and subsequent battle over the President’s national emergency declaration didn’t happen until after the midterm elections.

Where was the outrage over the Democrats bullying the GOP when the GOP had control of the House, Senate, and White House for two years?

I understand that most conservative sites are scared to say anything bad about the President, but he promised us a wall and he has failed to deliver. If you say, “that’s on Congress,” then I’m assuming you’re giving Congress all the credit for the tax cuts the President signed. No, despite the selective memory of most, you can’t credit the President with everything Congress does that he signs then blame Congress for everything the President wasn’t able to push them to do.

The President has done many positive things, which I have written about here in the past, but let’s be intellectually honest with ourselves. On this issue, someone gave him bad advice to wait for the wall and he decided to take that advice instead of pressing the issue. We are a crowdfunded conservative news site that relies on the generosity of our readers, but if you’re hoping to support a GOP-loving, Trump-can-do-no-wrong news outlet, we’re not it. We call it how we see it with conservatism and America’s well-being in mind. Neither the President nor GOP has acted on behalf of Americans in stopping the crisis at the border. This is why despite having full control, illegal immigration has increased dramatically since Republicans took over.

The only ones not to blame for any of this is Greyhound. They’re doing what’s best for their customers. As a private company, their rights must be protected. Anyone who tries to force them to allow illegal immigrants into their stations without a ticket is being unAmerican.
