Zuckerberg Group Pitches Amnesty

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg launched the open borders group FWD.us. Its president Todd Schulte recently stated that efforts to stop illegal immigration “hurt public safety.” He also claimed that amnesty for illegal aliens would “make our country safer.” Although the billionaire Zuckerberg is not partial to walls on our border, he has a large wall protecting his own personal property.

Huge Number of Visa Overstays Now Biggest Source of New Illegal Aliens

The source of illegal immigration into the U.S. has shifted away from the southwest border and into the country’s air and sea ports, where more than 54 million visitors checked in last year — and nearly 630,000 of them didn’t go home, according to new numbers released Monday.  Known as visa overstays, these illegal aliens …

Labor Force Level Declines for Natives without College

The official unemployment rate, 4.9 percent for the first quarter of 2017, is a vast improvement over the high percentages following the recession beginning in 2007. Nevertheless, the official figure minimizes the true picture of unemployment, especially for those of limited education. One way is not counting people of working age who haven’t recently looked for a job. If they are factored in, the labor force participation of all natives of working age without a college degree has declined since the recession began, from 73.8 percent in the first quarter of 2007 to 69.8 percent in the first quarter of this year. In 2000 the total was 76.1 percent. Immigration is one reason for this trend.

Democrats Attack Davis-Oliver Act

House Democrats are expressing strong opposition to the Davis-Oliver Act recently introduced by Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) (See previous news item.) The bill would penalize cities that break federal law with their sanctuary policies while enacting other steps to strengthen internal enforcement of immigration law.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA ) stated, “We have to call it Trump’s mass deportation act. It is a hard anti-immigrant enforcement only proposal. It is a welcome mat to racism. . . . A repudiation of the very values that have defined our great nation since its inception.” Jayapal didn’t explain how enforcing laws against lawbreakers is racist, or why it is contrary to American values to do so.

Enforcement Measure Introduced in House

Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) has introduced legislation to improve immigration law enforcement. It is H.R. 2431, also known as the Davis-Oliver act, in memory of two law enforcement officers who were killed by illegal aliens. Labrador is vice-chairman of the House Judicial Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee.
Among its provisions, H.R. 2431 legally clarifies the right of localities to assist immigration law enforcement, penalizes sanctuary jurisdictions, and authorizes the hiring of 12,500 more ICE officers.

Kobach Appointed to Election Commission

The Trump Administration has appointed Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach as the Vice Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The commission will investigate charges of voter fraud, including voting by non-citizen immigrants and illegal aliens. Kobach has long advocated effective enforcement of immigration laws, which has prompted heavy criticism from illegal alien advocates.

In response to these critics, who often resort to name calling, Kobach observed that “When . . . they don’t have any arguments left. . . . They just attack you as a person. They call you a racist; they call you a vote suppressor. They just come up with these stupid names.”

Emory Covers Illegals’ Tuition

Emory University in Atlanta is offering to cover the full tuition of illegal aliens who enroll there. A legal foreign student would have to pay a total $70,000 to enroll. An Emory spokeswoman stated that “Emory accepts undocumented students for admission and financial aid . . . [in order to have] students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds.” Evidently, the university views lawbreaking as a form of diverse enrichment.

FBI Head Reveals Refugee Criminal Link

Immigration advocates commonly maintain that refugees pose no terrorist threat to Americans because they go through background checks. They neglect to note that background checks are often difficult in their countries of origin. In recent testimony before Congress FBI Director James Comey pointed out that in more than 2,000 “violent extremist investigations . . . about 300 of them [15 percent] are people who came to the United States as refugees.”

Few Visa Overstayers Deported

It is estimated that as many as 40 percent of illegal aliens in the U.S. did not illegally cross the border to get there. They are people who came with legal visas and remained after their visas expired. The Department of Homeland Security has specifically identified 1.2 million individuals who are probably in this category, but in 2015 only managed to arrest about 3,400 of them. The government still lacks the means to check the departures of visa holders, even though this has long been promised. Several of the 9/11 terrorists were visa overstay illegal aliens.
