He promised to overturn President Obama’s unilateral edict granting legal status (amnesty) to five million illegal aliens. He also expressed support for reducing our record-level of legal immigration.

In spite of Fox News’ reputation as a conservative network, it founder Rupert Murdoch is a supporter of mass immigration and open borders. A writer for Breitbart News reports, “[Donald] Trump has shined a spotlight on one of Washington’s best kept secrets: namely, Fox’s role via its founder Rupert Murdoch in pushing an open borders agenda. . . . Well-concealed from virtually all reporting on Fox’s treatment of Trump is the fact that Murdoch is the co-chair of what is arguably one of the most powerful immigration lobbying firms in country, the Partnership for a New American Economy (PNAE).

A number of European countries are beginning to restrict entry to the great surge of migrants from the Middle East and Africa. As reported in The Washington Post, “Increasingly, nations are taking matters into their own hands, putting up policies aimed at cutting the migrant flow and weeding out all but those most at risk from war. This is taking place amid rising security fears in Europe after the terrorist attacks in Paris by assailants that included militants who disguised themselves as migrants, as well as hundreds of sexual assaults in Cologne, Germany, on New Year’s Eve in which asylum seekers are among the suspects.”

In response to the Supreme Court’s announcement that it will rule on President Obama’s edict granting legal status to million of illegal aliens, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton reaffirmed that this edict is “clearly” unconstitutional. Texas is one of 26 states challenging the Obama’s action in court. Paxton stated, “Congress has the constitutional authority to change the law.” If the Obama edict is allowed to stand, he maintained, “then any president can come along and change any law and make Congress pretty much irrelevant.”

TownHall columnist Kurt Schlichter maintains that America’s economic, political, and media elites promote mass immigration in order to feel morally superior to other Americans. As they do so, their privileged positions keep them from having to suffer the disadvantages of immigration such as culture-clash and unemployment. Evidently they don’t view patriotism and solidarity with their fellow Americans as a moral virtue.

The GOP in its replies to President Obama’s State of the Union Speech sent a mixed message. The first one, by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, was in English. The second one, by Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), was in Spanish. The languages were different, and so was the content of each. Haley’s affirmed that “stopping illegal immigration” was one of party’s goals, and she made no suggestion of amnesty for illegal aliens. Diaz-Balart, however, stated that America must offer a “permanent and humane solution to those who live in the shadows.” This language commonly refers to amnesty.
