America Can’t Save the World

More Misinformation from the Media:

There is much talk about immigration these days, especially concerning the plight of multitudes of Syrians fleeing their country due to war and terror. . . .

First off, can we afford to take in refugees? If not then we should not. But of course we can, we have so much money, and so many resources we can do anything we want to do. Do refugees cost us anything in the long run? [T]hey actually add to our GDP. . . .

Our European allies are taking in many displaced persons. We owe them more relief from the burden of this flood of refugees. We can easily handle the cost and inconvenience. It seems we have to handle the irrational fear that certain politicians have attempted to instill in us. – Immigrants Strengthen and Enrich Our Country, CalCoastNews.com, Pete Evans, 12/18/15

Fact Check: The idea we that “we can do anything we want to do” is the height of arrogant pride, and as the Bible warns it precedes destruction. Unfortunately, this kind of hubris is quite common among immigration enthusiasts. In their self-intoxication of idealism and egotism, they imagine that our country can be the savior of the planet.

The reality is that our country has real limits—and too many problems to pose as savior. Today our middle class is shrinking, wages are stagnant. The economic American Dream is becoming difficult for Americans to achieve—let alone for the huge numbers of immigrants we keep letting in. Currently we have a national debt of 19 trillion dollars. Can we “easily handle” more large-scale expenditures?

On top of our economic problems we have growing national conflict and division, brought in large part by the “diversity” resulting from mass immigration. We can scarcely save the world if we can’t even hold ourselves together.

Certainly, though, we can take in some genuine refugees, people who have a well-founded personal fear of persecution. But increasingly refugees are being redefined as people who, for various reasons, don’t like where they are living. Potentially they could number in the hundreds of millions. No, we simply can’t save them all.

It is interesting how the writer speaks about how “we” have so much money to provide for supposed refugees. Will he provide his own money for that purpose? Most probably not. The generosity he proposes is a forced generosity for the mass of overtaxed American taxpayers to practice. Migrants designated as refugees immediately have full access to U.S welfare programs, and they are long-term users of those programs. It’s hard to see how this adds to our national prosperity. Furthermore, by their use of public assistance, they diminish funds available for disadvantaged Americans.

Taxpayers also get hit by the so-called charities in the U.S. that administer refugee resettlement. They get federal money for each refugee they resettle. Soon after resettlement takes place, they are under no obligation to provide for them—which means that the refugees must turn to public assistance. Some charity.

No, America can’t be the savior of the world. We can help others, but within out limits. That is not irrational fear certain politicians are trying to instill, but simple common sense which anyone should be able to grasp.

Clinton’s Open Border Plan Exposed

Julia Hahn on Wednesday posted the most detailed — and alarming — analysis of Hillary Clinton’s extreme open borders plans yet published. Clinton promises to expand Obama’s amnesty edicts, pass amnesty legislation within her first 100 days in office, freeze deportations, do nothing to secure the borders, close detention centers and free illegals, give Obamacare to illegals, make millions of aliens U.S. citizens, and increase Muslim refugee admissions.

Hungary: Obama Wants Muslims to Fill Europe

Janos Lazar, the chief of staff of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, charged that President Obama wants Europe to be filled with Muslim migrants. He also charged that billionaire currency speculator George Soros is backing this agenda. Soros is an American citizen who came to this country from Hungary as an immigrant. He has consistently used his fortune to weaken the sovereignty of nations and promote globalism. Said Lazar, “Not so long ago while visiting Europe, President Obama clearly spoke out in favor of the importance of migration, settlement and even the forced settlement [of migrants].” He added that “[Obama and America] are following a very strong pro-migration, pro-illegal migration policy in the interests of having as many Muslims as possible in Europe.”

Obama Lawyers Caught Lying to Judge in Amnesty Edict Case

The federal district court judge hearing the lawsuit brought by 26 states against the Obama amnesty edict of November 2014 slapped an extraordinarily strong order on the Justice department lawyers on Thursday.  Judge Andrew Hanen found that the Obama lawyers were intentionally deceptive when they discussed how many work permits had been given to illegal aliens under Obama’s edict.

Hanen wrote in his order filed Thursday: “The misconduct in this case was intentional, serious and material. In fact, it is hard to imagine a more serious, more calculated plan of unethical conduct.”  The judge took the highly unusual step of ordering the administration’s attorneys to take a legal ethics course every year.

Posted 5/20/16 by George Palmer who comments: It seems clear that the Obama administration will stop at nothing in their mission of preventing enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws and importing a huge new Democrat Party-leaning voting bloc.

Border Patrol Releases 80 Percent of Illegal Aliens

Under present rules the Border Patrol has to release 80 percent of the illegal aliens it apprehends, according to Brandon Judd, president of the union that represents Border Patrol agents. In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, Judd stated, “We’re releasing basically everybody as long as you’re not from the country of Mexico. And even if you’re from the country of Mexico and you claim that you have a credible fear and you’re asking for asylum for one reason or another — we’re still releasing those individuals.”

The Seattle Times Promotes Illegal Aliens

More Misinformation from the Media:

The U.S. Supreme Court should uphold President Obama’s 2013 decision to delay deportations for millions of immigrants already living and contributing to American society. Then Congress needs to do its job. . . . Common sense reforms should include an avenue to citizenship for some of the estimated 11 million individuals who have resided in the U.S. for years. . . . Jorge Baron, executive director of the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, says. . . . These are people who are already contributing to our community. They just want to contribute fully. – How Immigration Reform Would Unlock Human Potential, Seattle Times Editorial Board, 5/3/16

Fact Check: If you care nothing about the U.S. Constitution and the freedoms it protects, then you might make an argument for endorsing President Obama’s edict to suspend immigration laws and grant legal status and work permits to millions of illegal aliens. But for what it’s worth, and indeed it’s a lot, the Constitution delegates the task of lawmaking to Congress, the elected representative body of the people. The president is supposed to enforce laws, not make them. If he does, he’s acting as a dictator, not a president. As for Congress “doing its job,” it already has by declining to pass legalization (amnesty) for illegal aliens.

The Times editors think that it’s “common sense” to allow illegal aliens to become citizens. Some argue that it is humanitarian to let them stay in this country. But what humanitarian principle requires that they should have citizenship as well? Citizenship is a privilege a foreigner should earn with good intentions and behavior. Consistently breaking our laws is a poor qualification for that privilege. To give citizenship to illegal aliens is to rewards their lawbreaking and debases the worth and value of our citizenship.

To say that illegal aliens contribute to our community suggests that they are doing what they do out of the purest concern for our country. In reality in most cases they do what they do for their own self-interest. On the other hand, we have loyal patriotic citizens who would like to contribute more to their communities, but they can’t thanks to the jobs illegal aliens take, the wages they suppress, and the public benefits—intended for citizens—that they take. Promotion of illegal aliens makes native-born and naturalized citizens second-class as citizens.
