The democrats understand that mass immigration and mass additions to the welfare rolls are their key to registering new voters. Globalists crave the cheap labor and the deterioration in the high standard of living that the west has as a result. When societies are stratified, they are easier to profit off of.
The democrats, the ACLU and other extreme left-wing organizations have gone to the courts in order to interfere with Donald Trump’s efforts to stem the flow of “Refugees” from countries racked by terrorism. Under the guise of discrimination, they sued. Left-wing judges obliged and now the “Travel Ban” is in the supreme court.
The democrats are hopping mad as illegal immigration is down 70%. They are also betting their political future on stopping Donald Trump’s wall (which happens to be very popular) as well.
Starting with this article, 16 States have joined the call to back up Donald Trump on his Travel Ban. Far-Left States like Washington and California were suing in order to keep the door open to potentially dangerous “refugees”. Please note that existing law allows a President to impose a travel ban up to 120 days – yet the liberal activist courts used Trump’s campaign rhetoric as the excuse to impose their will over existing law. The precedent of using political speech to override current law is a new one and a hallmark of the Judicial activists that Obama appointed to the federal bench.
In addition to Texas, the states that signed the brief are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and West Virginia. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant also signed the brief.
(This is another reason why the GOP stuffed Obama’s appointments the last two years, leaving 110 vacancies on Federal Circuit Courts)
General Kelly, the Secretary of Homeland Security has sounded the alarm over Terrorist Travel, especially in light of the terrorist attacks all over the west (in celebration of Ramadan). This underscores the need for extreme vetting and the so-called Travel Ban.
Despite the efforts of the left and democrat appointed judges, Trump administration plows ahead with extreme vetting of immigrants.
The application, which will expire in six months, requires potential immigrants or visitors to give 15 years of biographical information and five years worth of social media accounts. It also asks for travel history for the past 15 years, and phone numbers and email addresses used during the past five years.
Sanctuary Cities are also in the news. They are also a big loser for the democrats in the polls. A sanctuary city is a place where illegal immigrants are protected by local government from deportation or federal action.
Senators said Tuesday they may have a bipartisan way of allowing local police to cooperate with federal immigration agents, saying Congress could pass a law granting the localities protection from liability lawsuits brought by illegal immigrants who claim they were detained too long.
Sen. Ron Johnson said it could be a “pretty simple fix” to much of the sanctuary city fight that’s raging across the country.
“Let’s pass a law to give those local law enforcement officials liability protection,” the Wisconsin Republican and chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee said. “That could clear up this whole difference.”
Despite a court order halting most of his extreme vetting policy, President Trump’s administration has quietly been working toward his goal of a drastic cut in the number of refugees the U.S. will accept this fiscal year.
President Obama had set a target of up to 110,000 on his way out the door, but Mr. Trump tried to reset that number to 50,000. If the pace continues, the final tally is likely to be about 60,000 when the fiscal year ends in September — well below the level Mr. Obama wanted to lock in.
Most striking is the drop in the number of refugees from the seven terrorist-connected special interest countries that Mr. Trump singled out for extra scrutiny in his executive orders: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
Remember, the President and the Cabinet Secretaries have a lot of power despite the attempts of activist judges, the ACLU and others looking to interfere with the law for Political purposes.
Then, there is this:
Newly elected Rep. Clay Higgins is gaining widespread attention for a Facebook post in response to Saturday’s London terrorist attack that called on the United States to hunt down radicalized Islamic suspects and “kill them all.”
“The free world… all of Christendom… is at war with Islamic horror,” the Louisiana Republican wrote Sunday afternoon on his campaign page, which has remained active since his victory. “Not one penny of American treasure should be granted to any nation who harbors these heathen animals. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter. Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied.
“Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all,” he concluded.
Mr. Higgins is not alone in his opinion – the democrats are left to choose Islam over the rest of us.
