The Leftists Democrats, the socialists and anarchists, never seem to tire in their attempts to destroy our border integrity, what little of it remains, and ensure that the gates of Mexico continue flooding America with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens annually; and, whether or not it was President Trump’s intention, his continued push to legalize 1.8 million Dreamers, in order to highlight Democrats’ refusal to cooperate on border security demands, has actually resulted in a two-hundred percent surge in illegal immigration, from last year. America is currently witnessing a caravan of some 1500 or more illegal aliens heading this way, after being organized and funded by the radical, transnational, leftist group of Pueblo Sin Fronteras [People Without Borders].
Many duplicitous elements are also at play, as just this February, America witnessed a proposal set forth by Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer and Republican Senator Susan Collins, by and large a RINO, that would halt all immigration enforcement against any illegal aliens who arrive before June 2018, in an egregious violation of the four pillars of immigration initially laid out by the president. Not only does this proposal ignore the lessons of 9/11, it increases the risk of crime and terrorism, and it has already ensured a new wave of illegal immigration, effectively turning the United States into a sanctuary nation where the rule of law holds no value.
In March of last year, President Trump’s initial tough stance on immigration seemed to have effectively put the brakes on illegal immigration, but as his stance appeared to soften so too did we see an uptick in movement across the southern border. According to Homeland Security statistics, over 16,000 illegal aliens were apprehended last March, but this March the number jumped to over 50,000, up from 37,000 in February.
President Trump has even suggested the possibility of a DACA deal, although he also called it “dead” in one breath, while he castigated Democrats for not making a deal in the next breath. This ambiguity has now attracted thousands of more illegal aliens, who are currently heading our way from all across Central America and Mexico, a documented fact. Look for many thousands more of young teens and unaccompanied “children” to start arriving again at our ports of entry, within the next few weeks, and perhaps several hundreds of thousands more by years end, but the leftists, Democrats and liberal Republicans don’t care, since MS-13 and other Mexican and Guatemalan drug cartels aren’t swarming through their neighborhoods.
Only in the past two decades has this country allowed the advocates of diversity and multicultural cosmopolitan-one world-order-Marxism to take a firm grip on the reins of our immigration policies. Many Democrats were actually espousing common sense border security as early as the 1990s.
In 1993, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) stated: “The day when America could be the welfare system for Mexico is gone. We simply can’t afford it.”
In ‘Lessons from 1986 Immigration Reform’ [February 4th, 2013], Senator Chuck Grassley noted that Democrat Senator Howard Metzenbaum stated in 1985: ” … there is only one realistic way that you can stop illegal immigration into this country, and that is by making it illegal and being tough enough that illegal immigrants cannot work in this country.”
Even the New York Times, ever more the mouthpiece for the transnationalists and Marxists across the globe, had more sense on this topic, as noted by journalist Ann Coulter and exhibited in an editorial from September 29th 1997, stating: “Fighting illegal immigration is an important and difficult job. But Congress should do it in a way that will deter illegal entry at the border.”
Now, just as lawyers working for the Obama administration coached illegal aliens, who could not speak English, to keep repeating the phrase “credible fear”, so too are the Soros funded organizers using this same tactic. And illegal aliens will soon appear and claim that they face a “credible fear” in their country of origin, and before the first liberal crocodile tear can fall, they’ll be given a court date and “refugee” status, as they disappear into the homeland regions, only to reappear with driver’s licenses at our voting booths, welfare offices, and DACA protests, holding signs that read “No Bigots, No Borders” and waving Mexican flags alongside upside down American flags.
Many Americans and globalists scream that any attempt to stop this current wave of illegal aliens from crossing into the U.S. is illegal. The international court may agree, but we are still a sovereign nation, with all the rights and authority that suggests, and as such, we as a people have every right to stop these folks at the border and make them apply in Mexico, if they are really refugees at all. Upon verifying their refugee status, our government can decide at that point, just how many to admit, if any.
In the meantime, illegal is illegal, whether an elected official wants them here for cheap labor or padding the voting rolls by legitimizing these illegals. The simplest answers, right in front of our leaders faces, if not for their own agendas, would include closing our borders tight to anyone without a visa or a passport, activating E-Verify, moving immediately to deport all 30 million plus illegal aliens, and placing a temporary halt — a moratorium — on all future immigration, until this current generation of immigrants, the illegals who manage to stay and legal alike, have had a long enough period to fully integrate and assimilate.
What will President Trump do, if and when the Democrats call his hand? Will he really follow through with his proposed amnesty, turning at least five more states blue/ Democrat and setting up an avenue for amnesty for 30 million of the other illegal aliens in America? We must not give this amnesty under any set of circumstances, since a very small minority of these illegal aliens have actually been here since being infants or toddlers, and even if they were, they’ve had decades to correct their status.
This invasion of America by illegal aliens represents a strategic threat to the United States’ sovereignty and our American way of life, but our leaders seem content to wallow in their own fatal incompetence, as they have abandoned America to “whatever will be will be”, failing to stand for American lives, property and liberty. These illegal aliens and their leftist supporters are attempting to devastate our moral heart and freeze our national will to defend our nation, and in this sense, Trump is playing a dangerous game on immigration, which, if not handled properly, will certainly be the final nail in the coffin of Our Republic, sending America into a full blown barely functional authoritarian socialist tyranny.
