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.

Gavin Newsom’s agenda for illegal immigrants will spread across America if he’s not stopped

Gavin Newsoms agenda for illegal immigrants will spread across America if hes not stopped

For years, Democrats across the country but particularly in California have attempted to control language as it pertains to legal and illegal immigrants. They’ve used terms like “undocumented residents” instead of the prescribed term in the U.S. code, “illegal aliens.” But lately, they’ve changed their preferred phrase to simply “immigrants.” This is conspicuous in its meaning and devious in its purpose.

California Governor Gavin Newsom and Democrats who rule over the progressive state are pushing the term “immigrants” to blanket anyone who enters the country despite legal status because doing so is the fastest pathway to their ultimate goal of de facto citizenship. This is why the state continues pumping out new laws that blur any distinctions between legal and illegal immigrants, granting anyone in the state illegally the same rights as those who go through the proper legal process of entering and remaining in the country. Their latest batch of laws signed this week are the most obtuse yet.

California extends new protections to immigrants under laws signed by Newsom

Undergraduate Dreamers already are eligible for those loans and in-state tuition. The new laws take effect Jan. 1.

Undergraduate Dreamers already are eligible for those loans and in-state tuition. The new laws take effect Jan. 1.

This strategy shift is one designed to blur lines. Instead of calling for amnesty, they’re essentially eliminating the need for amnesty. The only reason an illegal immigrant would want to be granted amnesty and a pathway to citizenship is to enjoy the benefits of such events. But California’s goal is to erase the distinction and allow illegal immigrants to have the same rights as legal immigrants, and thereby the same rights as American citizens.

What’s the point of trying to attain U.S. citizenship if making it across the border is enough to enjoy the same rights?

This should be a grave concern to all who value our citizenship. As a legal immigrant myself, it’s a slap in the face knowing what it takes to go through proper channels, only to have California Democrats dismiss efforts of those who chose to come to America the right way. But it’s more than just an insult. It’s a risk to an already-stagnant economy in a state that should be flourishing. California is the fifth largest economy in the world with a higher GDP than Great Britain or India. High taxes generate such tremendous revenues, it’s impossible to imagine the state can experience budget deficits, and yet here we are.

The state’s poor fiscal management will only be exacerbated by allowing illegal immigrants to participate in even more social programs. From education to healthcare to access to welfare, it is no longer challenging to come to California illegally and live off of American taxpayers. In fact, it makes perfect sense. Why would anyone want to make meager wages in a Central American nation when they can come to California and make more money for doing nothing?

Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be isolated to California for long if Democrats continue to take power in states and in DC. These policies are popular among radical progressives and based on the direction of the Democratic party nationally, the radical progressives are gaining more control. Their agenda of socialism, open borders, gun control, abortion-on-demand and cultural Marxism will drive this nation into the ground as the left follows California’s lead.

And Gavin Newsom is at the center of it all.

The push to recall Gavin Newsom is going strong, due in large part over his incessant push for radical progressive policies. Supporting illegal immigration is at the top of his list. Californian’s have a duty to America to stop his extreme agenda.

Kevin McAleenan out as acting Homeland Security Secretary

Kevin McAleenan out as acting Homeland Security Secretary

When Kevin McAleenan took over the role of acting Homeland Security Secretary in April of this year following the firing of Kirstjen Nielsen, the United States was at the height of its border crisis. Border apprehensions were skyrocketing. Criminal illegal immigrants were flooding across the border undetected. ICE apprehensions were stalled. McAleenan helped make strides in all of these areas, but he is now departing from the Trump administration to spend time with family.

The news comes at a relatively quiet time for Homeland Security as border apprehensions have dipped considerably thanks to a combination of hot summer weather, policy changes, and an agreement President Trump made with Mexico to have them stop migrants before they make it across the U.S. southern border. But it’s also a time when migrants are expected to start making the trek from Central America through Mexico into the U.S. interior.

The President expects to announce a new acting Secretary in the coming weeks.

McAleenan had been accused of leaking information about ICE raids to the press in an effort to stop them in June, prompting an investigation the following month. He denied the accusations and nothing public was disclosed regarding the investigation. But this sudden departure brings into question whether he was involved in leaking or if his disagreements with the President over raids and deportations prompted his departure.

We almost certainly won’t find out.

McAleenan’s efforts were superior to his predecessor’s, but some say it still wasn’t enough. I tend to agree. Hopefully the next DHS Secretary will take all of the tasks of securing our nation, including ICE raids, more seriously.

Citizens made safer by border wall speak out for We Build the Wall

Citizens made safer by border wall speak out for We Build the Wall

When news broke last year that U.S. Air Force Veteran Brian Kolfage started a GoFundMe page to build a citizen-funded border wall, reactions were mixed. Some thought it would never work. Other’s didn’t think they’d have the technical expertise to build a proper wall even if they had enough money to do so. There were even critics who thought any attempts by private citizens to get the necessary permissions, materials, and contractors would turn into a debacle that would cost too much and take forever.

But this is America, and as American citizens have been proving for over two centuries, private enterprise and determination to succeed drives us to accomplish more than expected. We Build the Wall Inc found an ideal location to build their first stretch of wall, a piece of land popular among human traffickers and drug smugglers. It wasn’t a good choice in the government’s eyes as the Army Corps of Engineers declared the terrain too difficult to build a wall.

Undeterred, We Build the Wall secured permissions. The found high-quality contractors and American materials. They built an incredible stretch of wall well under what the government would have paid to have it done. And they did it all in a matter of days.

But this isn’t about private versus public projects. This is about protecting Americans by securing the border in spots that are most heavily trafficked by illegal immigrants and drug cartels, and with that goal in mind, We Build the Wall had an immediate impact.

Four and a half months later, we’re getting to hear stories from Americans who were impacted by the project. This video released by Kolfage isn’t just heartwarming. It delivers hope to those who may also believe the government’s tendency towards politics over solutions has left them stuck in a bad situation.

“This is what border security is all about, protecting the American people,” Kolfage said. “It’s rewarding to see the project come full circle, however, this is just one project, one small section, but as you can see the impact is very large.”

As the Trump administration fights Democrats who are obstructing border security efforts, victories are slowly coming through. Some walls are being built. But it’s not enough. This is why We Build the Wall is such an important charity to support. They’re taking a strategic approach to locating the stretches of unprotected border that need their efforts the most.

It isn’t right that so many American citizens must worry about their property and their safety as thousands of illegal immigrants pour across the border every day. The last fiscal year ended with nearly a million border crossing apprehensions. This doesn’t take into account those who were not asylum-seeking migrants and evaded capture. There’s no telling how many made it into the United States undetected.

Enough is enough.

“We cannot neglect our fellow citizens any longer who are in need of basic security, and We Build The Wall will continue to fight for these people,” Kolfage continued.

As We Build the Wall ramps up its efforts, it’s imperative that Americans support each other in the fight against the crime and drugs flowing across the border. We cannot wait for DC to get its act together. We need the wall now.
