Undermining public safety, public health, national security and the jobs and wages of American workers.
I have written ever so many articles about how globalists have used deceptive language to deceive Americans about the true nature of our immigration laws, beginning with President Carter’s edict, issued during his administration, that INS employees, replace the legally accurate term “Illegal Alien” with the deceptive term, “Undocumented Immigrant.”
I focused on this in my article, Language Wars: The Road to Tyranny Is Paved with Language Censorship. Generally we think of immigration fraud as taking two forms – aliens who engage in fraud schemes, such as those who enter into a sham marriage with an American or lawful immigrant, not out of love, but as a ploy to game the immigration system to acquire a green card.
The other traditional form of immigration fraud involves the manufacture of counterfeit or altered identity documents and/or supporting documents such as birth certificates, driver’s licenses or green cards.
However, there is actually a third form of immigration fraud, by which tens of millions Americans have been conned into believing pernicious lies about about our nation’s borders and immigration laws.
Over time, this highly coordinated fraud perpetrated by the mainstream media and globalists in both political parties, has convinced millions of otherwise sensible Americans to accept and even laud politicians and their corrupt immigration policies and practices that undermine public safety, public health, national security and the jobs and wages of American workers.
The immigration con game began in earnest with Carter’s Orwellian use of language I referenced at the beginning of my commentary.
Awhile back I wrote an extensive article about all three forms of immigration fraud in my commentary, Immigration Fraud: Lies That Kill. In that article I also noted that the 9/11 terrorists and other such terrorists exploited immigration fraud to enter the United States and then preparer to launch deadly terror attacks.
Today American’s have been duped into believing that only bigots, racists and xenophobes would want to secure our nation’s borders and enforce our immigration laws. In fact consider that the leaders of the Democratic Party now openly demand an end to immigration law enforcement and vilify immigration law enforcement personnel and have established Sanctuary Cities and even Sanctuary States that refuse to cooperate with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents. These jurisdictions now refuse to honor ICE detainers calling for local law enforcement to not release aliens who have serious criminal histories, so that they could be taken into federal custody to be deported (removed) from the United States to protect communities in the United States. All too often these aliens have gone on to attack more innocent victims and yet, millions of Americans have been somehow convinced that sanctuary policies are moral and appropriate!
On October 25, 2019 ICE published a news release, ICE announces more Mecklenburg County criminal offenders shielded by current non-cooperation policy that began with this paragraph:
CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released additional information Thursday on more unlawfully present foreign nationals facing serious criminal offenses in Mecklenburg County, who under the county’s ICE non-cooperation policy would currently be released back into the local community where they would be free to reoffend.
Among the serious crimes these aliens face include sex crimes against children, drug trafficking and firearms possession. Incredibly, local authorities will not let ICE know when these criminals may be released.
This is not an isolated problem. On October 30, 2019 ICE posted a news release, ICE captures Salvadoran illegal alien released by Buncombe County despite conviction for child sex offense.
My article, Politicians Must Face Consequences For Crimes They Enable focused on the release, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, of two suspected members of MS-13, Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce and Joel Ernesto Escobar. Both are citizens of El Salvador who are illegally present in the United States who had been arrested on May 11, 2019 and charged with, attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery, and other related charges.
On May 16, 2019 these two alleged gang members were arrested and charged with brutally murdering a young girl who would still be alive if the ICE detainers had been honored. That willful lack of cooperation with ICE cost that young girl her life.
I have traveled around the United States participating in various speaking events and frequently folks complain the “Liberals are ruled by the feelings.”
In point of fact, all humans make many decisions that are based on emotions. Being “cold-blooded” or “heartless” are anything but accolades. Don’t we raise our children to be considerate and compassionate?
Empathy is not a vice but a virtue.
The problem is that the massive campaign of misinformation and disinformation conducted by the mainstream media in concert with various special interest groups, have conned tens of millions of our fellow Americans into believing that our immigration laws are unfair and based on racism and xenophobia. In point of fact, our immigration laws don’t only tell us who to keep our and who to kick out, but on who to admit. Our immigration system is the most generous in the world. Currently each and every year Ameria admits more than one million lawful immigrants and naturalizes hundreds of new citizens. These huge numbers are greater than the numbers for all of the other countries on the planet combined.
U.S. Code § 1182 enumerates the categories of aliens who are to be excluded from the United States. Race, religion and/or ethnicity are not factors. 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 convicted felons, human rights violators, war criminals, terrorists and spies are to be excluded as well as aliens who would seek unlawful employment thus displacing American workers or driving down the wages of American workers who are similarly employed and aliens who would likely become public charges.
Feelings and emotions are powerful and make us human. Our challenge, in this particularly dangerous era, is to harness these powerful emotions of those who have been conned by the globalists and radical Left so that they will apply their emotions, particularly empathy and compassion to their fellow Americans first.
No rational person would give money to charity if his/her own children were going to bed hungry. Homelessness is on the rise because of many factors, including the loss of jobs and wage suppression created by flooding America with foreign workers willing to work for substandard wages under substandard conditions, and frequently displace hard-working Americans.
Flooding America with more people increases the demand for housing, thereby driving up the housing costs, often out of the reach of working poor Americans. This contributes to record levels of homelessness.
Children, especially those who are members of ethic immigrant communities, are being accosted, beaten, raped and killed by transnational gang members in their schools and not just from Latin America. Record quantities of dangerous drugs including heroin, meth and fentanyl are pouring into the United States across our all too porous borders- and not just the U.S./Mexican border.
Those who currently oppose immigration law enforcement and secure borders are not our adversaries but our allies, if we can use the facts to win them over to understand that our borders and immigration laws are not only eminently fair, but are our first and last lines of defense.
