Sanctuaries Protect Criminals

Conservative commentator Ken Blackwell stated, “President Donald Trump issued an executive order to stop subsidizing cities that obstruct immigration law. Chicago filed suit in response. Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to continue collecting federal dollars while ignoring federal policy.”
“Chicago is a ‘sanctuary city.’ That sounds nice, kind of like Oscar Schindler protecting Jews from the Nazis. It actually means protecting illegal aliens who commit crimes from being punished and deported. When President Donald Trump took office, some 300 jurisdictions, including 106 cities, actively interfered with federal law enforcement.”

California Leads in Poverty

A columnist writing in the San Diego Times asked why California has the highest poverty rate of any state in the union. Twenty percent of the state’s residents are below the poverty level, and another twenty percent live in “near poverty.” This is interesting because California is the state with the largest number and percentage of immigrants. Immigration advocates constantly maintain that mass immigration always brings prosperity. A study by the Heritage Foundation found that our present immigration system “imports poverty.”

Coulter: Media Afraid to Cover RAISE Act

Miller: Mass Immigration Not the Norm

White House Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller defended the defended provision the proposed Raise Act that would cut legal immigration in half. He noted that “We admitted about 300,000 people a year in the 70s. About half a million a year in the 80s. Now it’s over a million a year. So what happening now is not the norm. It’s actually unusual how many people we are letting in  now.”
He continued, “There are segments in the extreme media–I wouldn’t call them mainstream–because it is extreme to want no borders. It’s extreme to want to have unlimited, cheap migration driving down working class-wages. These are extreme positions.

Ryan Raises Bogus Labor Shortage Claim

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) criticized the proposed RAISE Act, claiming that its provision to cut legal immigration by half would aggravate an alleged shortage of American workers. Ryan is commonly s spokesman for the Republican Party’s cheap labor interests.
The congressman’s claim about a labor shortage is oblivious to the fact that the U.S. is now on the brink of a major revolution in automation. Some studies indicate that almost half the jobs done by people in recent years will be done by machines and computers in the near-future. In that situation, finding jobs for native-born Americans will be a leading challenge.

Chicago Sues to Defy Sanctuary Ban

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has filed suit against the Trump Administration’s plan to cut federal funding to sanctuary cities like Chicago that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration law enforcement. Sarah Flores, a spokeswoman for the Justice Department, replied to Emanuel’s action with the following statement, “In 2016, more Chicagoans were murdered in New York City and Los Angeles combined. So it’s especially tragic that the mayor is less concerned with that staggering figure than he is spending time and taxpayer money protecting criminal aliens and putting Chicago’s law enforcement at greater risk.”

Trump Endorses RAISE Act

President Trump endorsed legislation which eventually would cut legal immigration in half. Legal immigration is now that the highest sustained level in our history at more than a million a year.
The legislation, introduced by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA), is called the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act. By cutting immigration, it aims to reduce competition for American jobs. Specifically, it would cut back on immigration based on family connections and favor applications from people with needed skills. “This legislation,” said President Trump, “demonstrates our compassion for struggling American families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and that puts America first.”

King: End Capitol Hill Sanctuary

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has introduced legislation to empower Capitol Hill police to enforce immigration law. This would allow them to arrest illegal aliens who protest in Washington. Said King, “The Capitol Police, a federal law enforcement agency, do not have explicit statuary authority to enforce our immigration laws. Without clear authority, they are not investigating the immigration status of protesters opening claiming that they are here illegally while disrupting committee proceedings and shutting down congressional offices.” The congressman added that it makes no sense to seek an end to sanctuary cities when Capitol Hill offices “serve as sanctuaries for lawlessness.”
