Open-Borders/Immigration Anarchist “journalists” and politicians howl virtually every time an ICE agent arrests an illegal alien, who is, in fact, violating our immigration laws.
Their high-profile positions cover them while deceiving the American people – with their carefully crafted narratives designed to tug on the heartstrings of millions of trusting people. But Americans are coming to understand how they have been lied to and manipulated.
This realization explains why Donald Trump is now President Trump.
However, die-hard globalist politicians, Democrats, in particular, refuse to acknowledge that President Trump won the election and they deny that he won by promising the American people secure borders and national sovereignty were behind his victory.
Rather than listening to American citizens to meet their demands and expectations about immigration, these globalists have publicly descended into madness, concocting a “Russian collusion” narrative to de-legitimize the election. What’s worse, these globalists demonize supporters of any commonsense immigration law enforcement.
The Democrats have now even openly invited attacks on American voters who want secure borders and ICE enforcement of fair immigration law.
Now, “leaders” of the Democratic Party are demanding the dismantling of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) altogether, launching vicious and vitriolic attacks on ICE agents equating them and their work with Nazi Storm Troopers and terrorists. These public attacks imperil their safety and compromise the agents’ ability to carry out their lawful duties. This has severe implications for national security and public safety in every American community – not merely in towns situated on the border.
ICE also conducts work-site investigations to uncover crooked employers who hire illegal aliens. Democrats decry these needed field operations, but they know damned well that the criminal exploitation of foreign workers is anything but compassionate or helpful to American or lawful immigrant workers.
This issue served as the underlying theme for my article, Sanctuary Cities Protect Crooked Employers, and Human Traffickers.
These field investigations punish unscrupulous employers in the same way that the IRS investigates businesses that defraud the federal government.
ICE’s goal is to detect and hold accountable employers who defraud their workers. The operations also deter other violations of commonsense immigration laws that protect Americans’ jobs, wages and working conditions.
Arresting illegal alien employees frees up the jobs that they essentially stole from lawful immigrant and U.S. citizen workers.
Cuomo and his cohorts adamantly oppose such field investigation that protects national security and public safety and combat exploitation of vulnerable foreign workers while helping struggling Americans.
The outrageous accusation that ICE agents arrest “Law-abiding immigrants” creates the false narrative that ICE agents are acting illegally. Only law-breakers get arrested. Those who are “law-abiding” should have nothing to fear.
These dishonest politicians promise to “protect immigrants from ICE.” Lawful immigrants do not need any protection from ICE. The only aliens who should be fearful of immigration law enforcement are those aliens who violate our laws.
This is true for all law violators. Legitimate customers of a bank do not need to fear the NYPD, but bank robbers most certainly should be afraid- very afraid.
Immigration anarchist refers to illegal aliens as undocumented immigrants. By their reasoning bank, robbers should, perhaps, be referred to customers making “undocumented withdrawals!”
Illegal aliens are illegal because they either entered the United States without inspection or by committing visa fraud and the fraud was subsequently discovered. Alternatively, they may have violated the terms of their admission after being lawfully admitted. For temporary visitors (nonimmigrant aliens) immigration status violations subject them to deportation (removal).
Lawful immigrants and non-immigrant aliens all become subject to deportation if they commit serious crimes.
In each instance, these aliens violate our immigration laws, some of which are serious felonies such as the crime of Reentry After Deportation (8 U.S. Code § 1326).
This is most certainly does not qualify them to be described as “law abiding.”
Our immigration laws have nothing to do with race, religion or ethnicity.Title 8, United States Code, Section 1182 enumerates the categories of aliens who are to be excluded. Among these classes of aliens who are to be prevented from entering the United States are aliens who suffer from dangerous communicable diseases or extreme mental illness, are criminals, spies, terrorists or would otherwise endanger national security or public safety or take the jobs of Americans.
Among those spewing these lies are the “leaders” of the Democratic Party such as Nancy Pelosi, New York City’s mayor Bill de Blasio and New York State’s governor Andrew Cuomo who refers to ICE raids as “reckless” and is suing the Federal government to prevent ICE agents from carrying out their duties by making arrests in state buildings such as courthouses.
I recently addressed Pelosi’s lies and slanderous accusations of ICE agents in my article, The “Greatest Generation” vs Pelosi’s “Delusional Generation”
On April 25, 2018 the New York Daily News reported, Gov. Cuomo says ICE is ‘violating the law’ after recent raids by federal agents.
Here is an excerpt from that report:
Cuomo in his letter said ICE agents also have gone to homes on Staten Island seeking one person but arresting others when that individual was not there.
Because they are in plainclothes, Cuomo said, many in the community believe them to be local law enforcement, with whom they are now afraid to deal.
Cuomo said he was assembling a “statewide” network of “rapid response teams,” including “legal counsel,” who could be quickly dispatched in a crisis situation.
“We should be able to get legal counsel there as quickly as possible,” he said.
Cuomo has since threatened that he would conduct investigations into ICE and seek, when possible, to criminally prosecute ICE agents.
He is now spending New York State’s money on the obstruction of immigration law enforcement activities while demanding that the federal government provide money for law enforcement and counter-terrorism efforts.
When I was an INS agent, my colleagues and I frequently arrested illegal aliens in courthouses. This is one of the safest places to make such arrests because all individuals who enter the courthouse are searched for weapons. Many criminals, including criminal aliens, routinely carry weapons.
It is far safer for all concerned – the alien, the agents and the general public – for these individuals to be unarmed when taken into custody. Under the best circumstances, arrests are made without incident. Courthouses provide the ideal environment for such incident-free arrests.
In fact, the latter report included this important paragraph:
Thus, abuse of the immigration system and a lack of interior immigration enforcement were unwittingly working together to support terrorist activity. It would remain largely unknown, since no agency of the United States government analyzed terrorist travel patterns until after 9/11. This lack of attention meant that critical opportunities to disrupt terrorist travel and, therefore, deadly terrorist operations were missed.
Most alien terrorists who have been arrested in the United States had no criminal histories but had violated our immigration laws either by their methods of entry into the United States and by violating immigration laws after entering the United States.
This is precisely how sleeper agents operate, seeking to keep the lowest possible profile until the day that they are called into action.
Laws are only significant when enforced. Enforcement requires that those who violate the laws face adverse consequences for their actions to punish those who violate the laws and to deter others who might contemplate violating those laws.
The control of the language of the immigration debate has made honest discussions impossible. Many refer to this alteration of language as being a matter of “Political Correctness” when nothing could be further from the truth. The concept of political correctness (PC) was to not use language that insults or denigrates people. This is not unreasonable.
However, when language is altered to achieve thought control, we have entered the realm of George Orwell and Newspeak and censorship. This was, in fact, the prediction for my article, Language Wars: The Road to Tyranny Is Paved with Language Censorship.
This tactic was first applied in the immigration debate by Jimmy Carter: Originator of the Orwellian term “Undocumented Immigrant” when, under his “leadership,” INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) employees were mandated to substitute the term “undocumented immigrant” in place of the legally and factually accurate term “illegal alien.”
Over time all foreigners in the United States have come to be referred to as “Immigrants,” no matter how they entered the United States, not how many crimes they may have committed.
Consequently, today when anyone now so much as suggests that alien criminals or terrorists be denied entry into the United States, or be deported (removed) from the United States the journalists take out their smoking hot branding irons and label that advocate for fair but effective enforcement of our immigration laws “Anti-Immigrant.” These are the same individuals who decry bullying tactics yet are the ones who most frequently resort to that disgusting and un-American strategy.
People who are convicted of crimes are frequently imprisoned to punish them and consequently to deter others from committing similar crimes. People are also sentenced to imprisonment to take them off the street so that they can no longer pose a threat to the safety and lives of others.
Why then is it unpardonable that when aliens pose a threat to public safety that they not be removed from our country to protect potential future victims?
National security and public safety and the lives and livelihoods of Americans and lawful immigrants are secondary to the goals of anarchist politicians who oppose the effective but fair enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws. Those goals are all about their campaign contributions and their desire to maintain political power at any and all costs.
Those costs too high and Americans, and lawful immigrants pay those costs every day.
This betrayal of America and Americans by the immigration anarchists must be stopped.
Election Day is coming.
