Enforcement Causing Self-Deportation

One study indicates that stricter enforcement of immigration laws under the Trump Administration is causing illegal aliens to “self-deport,” i.e., go home on their own rather than deal with the pressure of added enforcement. Self-deportation is the answer to the claim of illegal alien advocates that we must grant amnesty because rounding up 11 million illegal immigrants is an impossible task. Arrest and deport some of them, and the rest will get the message and go home on their own.

U.S. Elites Trash American Natives

Breitbart has posted a list of quotes from U.S. elites demeaning average native-born Americans. The general message of these bigoted statements is that immigrants are superior to natives in just about every way, including work ethics, family values, and overall moral character. If such claims were true, one wonders why immigrants would want to come here and expose themselves to such a low grade of people.

Trump Affirms Western Values and Borders

President Trump declared during his visit in Poland that “The fundamental question of our time is: whether the West has the will to survive.” He then asked, “Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have the respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”

Chapman’s Column Lacks Evidence

More Misinformation from the Media:

Trump also wants to punish sanctuary cities—where policies bar police from making arrest for immigration violations or asking people about their immigration status. He decries these accommodations as a threat to public safety. In fact, they enhance it—by encouraging the 11 million foreigners living here without permission to cooperate with cops. . . . Chuck Wexler, executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, told USA Today, “If people are afraid to come to the police, that domestic violence incident today will be a homicide tomorrow, and that’s in no one’s interest.” . . .

Most of what Trump says on this topic is lacking evidence. . . . [I]f he expects tougher enforcement to create jobs and raise wages, he’s in for a crushing disappointment. A report last year, commissioned by the National Academy of Sciences . . . found [immigration] has only a minimal impact on wages. – How Trump’s Immigration Crackdown Will Backfire, Chicago Tribune, Steve Chapman, 1/27/17. [Link]

Fact Check: Immigration advocates commonly claim that local enforcement of immigration law will cause a “chilling effect” on the reporting of crimes in illegal alien communities. Supposedly, fear of deportation will discourage witnesses to crimes from coming forward.

The problem with this claim is that there is little real evidence to back it up. The most common reasons for noncooperation with police, according to one respected study, were language barriers, cultural differences, and lack of understanding of the U.S. justice system. Significantly, authorities can shield a witness from deportation who wishes to provide testimony.

The most comprehensive study of the “chilling effect” focused on enforcement in Prince William County, Virginia. Conducted in 2009 by the University of Virginia and the Police Executive Research Forum, it found that the country’s enforcement had not damaged police and community relations. Recently, in testimony before the Senate a high-ranking official in the Justice Department maintained that the “chilling effect” is largely a myth. Evidence aside, immigration advocates keep on repeating it.

The National Academy of Sciences report did say that the “overall” impact of immigration on wages was small, but he neglected to note what else the report said. Namely, some groups within the overall society are feeling a significant pinch in wages. Prominent among them are native-born Americans (as well a previous immigrants) without a high school degree. The report further reveals that wage depression among low-income people, brought about by immigration, results in a large transfer of wealth from them to better-off people. The latter commonly profit from cheap labor.

Certainly it is true that immigrants seldom compete with prominent newspaper columnists for jobs. They can promote mass immigration without fear of personal loss.

Senator: Redirect Funds for Sanctuaries to Wall

Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) has introduced legislation fund President Trump’s border wall by cutting funds to sanctuary jurisdictions. He stated, “My bill has two simple outcomes: Sanctuary jurisdictions can either follow the law or fund the wall. Failure to comply with federal immigration authorities and continued efforts to interfere with the lawful pursuit of border wall contracts by local businesses will be met with the loss of federal transportation and infrastructure grant funding. These funds will go towards the construction of our border wall.”

The senator also posed the following question, “How many criminal aliens have to be released shy of justice being served for the rule of law to be affirmed as the first priority of a functioning society?”

On July 4th Pat Buchanan Asks: ‘Is America Still a Nation?’

Pat Buchanan reflects on what makes a nation and whether the diversity cult of the elites imperils the American nation.  Must reading.  A few excerpts:

In the first line of the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson speaks of “one people.”  And who were these “people”?

In Federalist No. 2, John Jay writes of them as “one united people … descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs…”

If such are the elements of nationhood and peoplehood, can we still speak of Americans as one nation and one people?

Federalist No. 2 celebrated our unity.  Today’s elites proclaim that our diversity is our strength.  But is this true or a tenet of trendy ideology?
