Hold the line Mr. President

January 29, 2017

Hold the line : This term alludes to former military tactics, in which a line of troops was supposed to prevent an enemy breakthrough.

The first week of President Donald Trump’s administration certainly has been interesting. The divide between what the press is reporting and what is actually taking place seems wider than ever. European leaders are in a frenzy, trying to figure out what the US President is up to. They see their status quo falling apart. This is not that way it’s supposed to work.

Germany’s Chancellor Merkel says that the fight against terrorism is no excuse for banning refugees. Luckily for the US, Germany’s Merkel doesn’t get a vote on our immigration and refugee policy. If they did we would see the same staggering rise in rapes, murders, and general disregard for western values and laws. (We have enough of that to deal with already)

There is no inherent right for anyone to just migrate to another sovereign country. We have no obligation. Period!

In London, the Mayor asked for the state visit from President Trump be canceled. Well since the British Prime Minister just made that request it doesn’t seem likely to be reversed. But that wasn’t really his point. London has become a safe haven for radical Muslims and Sadiq Khan appears to support this.

He told Sky News: "I am quite clear, this ban is cruel, this ban is shameful, while this ban is in place we should not be rolling out the red carpet for President Trump.”

How exactly how a ban on people coming to the US is cruel he doesn’t explain. The definition of cruel seems very wobbly in this case.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “Donald Trump should not be welcomed to Britain while he abuses our shared values with his shameful Muslim ban and attacks on refugees’ and women’s rights.

Except as Brexit seems to indicate, the Labour party may be in the minority on this issue in Britain. So, it’s no surprise they complain.

The elites are in a tizzy and it is a joy to see. Immigration is an issue that is for the sovereign nation’s own population to decide not foreign agitators. The elites of Europe see their influence diminished with President Trump in office, the Radical Islamist see their potential access to do harm threatened and don’t like Trump in office. The American people we are told by the preening press are divided. We shall see.

The Bloomberg headline says a lot about the coverage.

“Global Criticism of Trump Ban Builds From Germany to Google.”

Google? What country is this?

All the while many in the US and quietly around the world are cheering. Finally, someone with the fortitude to stand for the people. One can only hope he continues and doesn’t lose his spine.

The one note here is that based on the wording of the executive order, legal residents should have been explicitly exempted. While one can assume that was that idea, it was not clear.

Rule of law has been abandoned by too many officials.  It’s not complicated.  Uphold the law.

Incompetence or? Immigration fail

September 19, 2016

Yet we are to believe that we will be able to vet refugees?  We aren’t even trying.  

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud who had pending deportation orders, according to an internal Homeland Security audit released Monday.

The Homeland Security Department’s inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and such discrepancies weren’t caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.

Will Europe wake up before it’s too late?

March 27, 2016

How many will have to die? At what number, or is there even a number, at which Europeans decide enough is enough? The political class in Europe and to a great extent the populations of Europe have asked, no, begged Islamist to take their countries. The indoctrination of the population to “mulita-Culti”, along with 70 years of US protection, have left Europe in a state of defenselessness. They simply can’t bring themselves to defend their own lives or interests.

Some point to the middle east and say, “but what about the dying Muslims”? That is exactly the point. Do you want that culture?

The population has continued to vote into office soft-spoken socialist that simply do not understand the actual world they live in. They can’t imagine that other people around the world don’t operate under the same civilized rules they do.

When acts of terror happen in the United States, the people get mad. In Europe they are confused. It boggles their minds how people could not think and want the same things as they do. The French surprised many with the strong tactics they took after the Paris event. The Belgium police have finally entered into their own no-go zones, but one wonders if they will keep the pressure on. As long as there are segregated communities that police cannot or will not enter to enforce the law, the terrorist will have an advantage.

It’s not that Europe doesn’t have a great intelligence apparatus, it does. It’s also not that the police are not willing to do the hard work, I believe they are. It’s the general population who live in a fantasy world where everyone holds hands and loves each other. Leftist thought has caused this and the real world is now knocking.

Syrian refugee plan is one more bad idea.

February 18, 2015

(Reuters) – The Republican-led House Committee on Homeland Security is challenging an Obama administration plan to admit Syrian refugees to the United States, saying it could allow potential terrorists to sneak into the country.

In a letter sent to the White House, Michael McCaul, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee and Peter King and Candice Miller, who chair subcommittees, said the administration’s plan "raises serious national security concerns."isis

The letter, dated Wednesday, said the United States lacks the resources to fully investigate the backgrounds of refugees from Syria, a base for Islamic State militants, before they are admitted to the country.

Anne Richard, an Assistant Secretary of State, said on Dec. 9 that the United States resettled nearly 70,000 refugees from nearly 70 countries in 2013 and that the administration’s refugee plans would lead to "resettling Syrians as well."

It appears the best way to create a path for jihadist to the west, Europe and the US, is to create chaos in your home country. We have some sort of self destruct mode that feels the need to open the gates to people we have no way to screen and only adds to our ever growing welfare rolls while allowing potential terrorist in. Add to that list those that may not be terrorist but simply won’t integrate into our society and you have a mess.

Denial on border flood

July 16, 2014

Well if Harry Reid says the border is secure who can doubt it? 

 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday asserted the southern border is secure despite the massive surge of illegal minors

“The border is secure,” he told reporters after the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.”

——

Reid said lawmakers need to worry less about border security and focus instead on President Obama’s $3.7 billion request to help process the tens of thousands of children from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador who have been apprehended on the border.

Somebody warned of this type of thing a while back..  Hummm…

MS-13 Recruiting on the border

The infamous gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, is reportedly taking advantage of the immigration crisis along the U.S. border.

“They’re now using the Nogales processing center as a recruitment hub for new members to come in,” Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich reported Friday. “They’re trying to recruit other teenage boys that are sharing cells with them and they’re using the phones that the Red Cross has set up. They’re supposed to be using those to call back home or to call family members in the United States. They’re also using those as a way to communicate with gang members already in U.S. cities.”

Miss Pavlich’s information came from a Border Patrol executive summary obtained by Townhall.com, which confirmed that at least 16 unaccompanied illegal minors have been identified as members of MS-13.

Never fear, our leader is on the job.

POTOMAC, Md. (AP) — President Barack Obama is playing golf at a private club in Maryland with ESPN co-host Michael Wilbon.

Obama played at a different club late last month with Tony Kornheiser, Wilbon’s sidekick on the sports show "Pardon the Interruption"

Obama’s venue Saturday was TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Potomac, Maryland. The club has a championship course on 220 rolling acres in Montgomery County.

Immigration flood a Plan?

July 7, 2014

Illegal immigration is reaching a tipping point. Either we are a country of laws or we are not. I can’t tell you how this will turn out but I suspect that if the American people don’t make some key decisions about what they want this country to look like, the future doesn’t look good. When I say “what this country looks like”, I’m not talking about demographics. I’m talking about common sense laws. I’m talking about law enforcement regardless of political party and holding people accountable for their actions. If we decide the founding principles of this country don’t matter than I hope we are prepared for the consequences.

Immigration is a fine and sometime even noble concept. Do we want hard working people coming here for freedom and liberty, leaving oppression and tyranny behind? Of course but those that make this move must also abide by the ideas that make a free nation. It’s not chaos or who screams the loudest. Rules and processes must be in place and enforced. We now see an administration completely abandon the idea of a secure border. A flood is taking place and we look completely helpless and weak. Another wonderful sign to our enemies and allies alike. Of course that would assume we still have any allies.

Regardless of what you might hear in the media the real numbers are staggering. I recently talked with a person working the border in Texas and the actual numbers are in the tens of thousands a month just in his area alone. With the inability (through inaction) to quickly repatriate we have effectively opened the flood gates. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents are relegated to housing, feeding and tending to sickness rather than enforcing our laws. I don’t know enough of the CBP to give a blanket statement but I would assume most aren’t happy with the situation.

In the past you might have to bribe someone to get across now just walk on by. The Cartels and Gangs must be loving this hall pass. As US law Enforcement are distracted they are saving millions.

I wonder if the those who support this invasion really understand what will happen if this continues. Have they been to El Salvador, Guatemala or Mexico lately? Do we want our country to descend into the chaos that is south of the border? I feel for the peoples of these countries and would gladly help them in their own lands but not here. “But the children, we must help the children”. This is the continual rally cry. Really? Then lets help them in their own country. Not here. It’s not about the children it’s about fundamentally changing America.

Do we need immigration reform? Most likely. As a husband of an immigrant I’m not against immigration at all. But I know what it cost in time and money to follow the rules and laws of our land. I applaud the idea of streamlining this process. But I don’t endorse abandoning the legal process and opening the borders to anyone, anytime for any reason. If we don’t own our borders we don’t own our country.

We are being attacked. Not from poor immigrants but from within by those that wish to tear down this land. The immigrants are simply the tools by which these anti-Americans will assault the foundations of our country. When their usefulness is done they will be abandoned and the working people of our country will foot the bill once again. Now, understand they are not the only tools being applied. Many of our own citizens are also being used to great effect. Our laws are being applied selectively in order to coerce and manipulate the voting public into submission. We are being turned upon ourselves, fighting each other where no fight exists. The vial hate coming from the left all in the name of tolerance is amazing yet unchecked for the most part.

We twice voted for a President that surrounded himself with people who believe America is the enemy so we certainly can’t be too surprised at the current state of affairs.

Immigration and amnesty with no rule of law

May 16, 2014

 

Investors.com

Immigration: After releasing tens of thousands of criminal aliens, President Obama urgently asks law enforcement officials to lean on Republicans to pass amnesty. Will the GOP deport itself out of victory this year?

Congressman Lamar Smith called it "the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the president and perpetrated by our own immigration officials."

According to a document obtained from the Center for Immigration Studies, Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 36,007 convicted aliens last year who were being detained pending deportation. The tally includes 193 convictions for homicide, 426 for sexual assault, 303 for kidnapping, 1,075 for aggravated assault and 16,070 for drunk or drugged driving.

It’s all for the families and children.  Oh, and politics.

Border priorities….

September 10, 2011

Canadians with mental illnesses denied U.S. entry

Can’t tell me our DHS doesn’t know how to stop people from coming into this country.  I’m glad they have their priorities right.  I’d laugh if the situation wasn’t so sad. 

So far, the RCMP hasn’t provided the office with clear answers about how or why police records of non-violent mental health incidents are passed across the border.

Brad Benson from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says medical records aren’t shared between countries. However, "if you have an arrest record, Canada would share that with us," he says.

If a police encounter includes information about mental health, Benson says front-line officers can use it.

"Mental illness is actually under our law as a reason that you may not get admitted," he says. "The issue is always going to be: could someone be a danger to someone [else]?"
