Senators Introduce Pro-ICE Resolution

Senators Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and David Perdue (R-GA) have introduced a resolution in the Senate, “Opposing the targeted harassment of U.s. Immigration and customs Enforcement officers and employees and reaffirming the fundamental principle that public services should be provided without discrimination.”

The National ICE Council, the union representing ICE employees, thanked the senators for the resolution and noted that “National security, or even basic border security, does not exist without the interior enforcement of a nation’s immigration laws, as the horrific events of 9/11 and indeed terrorist attacks worldwide have proven. With over two million criminal aliens estimated to be currently residing in the U.S., our jails and prisons are already dramatically overcrowded, and local police are often overwhelmed, begging for ICE and its resources to assist in making our communities safer. Those calling for the abolishment of ICE don’t understand the significant threat to our nation’s security and the safety of American communities that their ideas present.”

Rep. King Warns of Violence

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) stated that continued high levels of immigration from Central and South America will jeopardize the safety of Americans. He noted that “[Nine] of the most violent countries in the world [and] sixteen of the top 20 are south of the Rio Grande. [Eighty-one percent] who cross the border illegally are young men. Young men in every society are the most violent segment. Importing millions of this demographic means death for Americans.”

An Article Leaves Out Key Detail

The Quote Below: More Misinformation from the Media

“A pregnant woman in California said she had to drive herself to hospital [sic] to give birth because immigration authorities had taken her husband on the way there. . . . The couple had stopped at a petrol station when surveillance footage showed two vehicles with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents question the couple about identity documents. . . .

“The video showed agents asked Mr. Arrona to step out of the vehicle, searched the van for weapons, and then handcuffed Mr. Arrona before taking him away and leaving a bereft Ms. Venegas alone in the gas station.

“Ms. Venegas told the local CBS News station: “My husband needs to be here. He had to wait for his son for so long, and someone just took him away.”

“Mr. Arrona is originally from Mexico and has been in the U.S. for 12 years without legal authorization, Ms. Venegas confirmed. She noted he has never been in trouble with the police before and is the sole provider for the family.” – Immigration Agents Arrest Man While He Is Driving His Pregnant Wife to Hospital – The Husband Is in the U.S. Illegally But Had Simply Forgotten His Identification at Home – The Independent, Mythill Sampathkumar, 8/18/18 [Link]

Fact Check of Quote: This article puts ICE in the worst possible light. The Independent is a British newspaper, but its reporting is quite similar to a number of U.S. media outlets.

The basic narrative is that its cruel and insensitive agents separated a man from his pregnant wife because he left his ID at home, thus forcing the wife to drive herself to the hospital to deliver her baby—with the suggestion that this was a real hardship, one perhaps risking a premature delivery. The article concedes that the man was an illegal alien who had been in the U.S. for 12 years, but quotes the wife as saying that “he had never been in trouble with police”—which makes his handcuffing seem excessive.

The account leaves out one key bit of information. ICE arrested the man in question because he was a fugitive wanted for murder in Mexico. ICE apprehended him specifically on the request of the Mexican government. The addition of this detail puts the incident in an entirely different light.

Why did The Independent and the other outlets leave it out? One explanation is that they are sloppy in their research and reporting. But would they all be sloppy in exactly the same way? Probably not. A more likely explanation is simple bias in favor of illegal immigration.

The Independent also misleads in a smaller way by implying in the lead sentence that it was a real imposition for the pregnant wife to have to drive herself to the hospital. After getting that impression, one could easily miss the brief phrase several paragraphs down that she was going for a “scheduled cesarean section.” Given that fact and the fact that the hospital was only two miles away, she was hardly in any danger of a premature delivery.

The corporate media in the U.S. and other Western countries typically slant news against sensible immigration policies and many other sensible ideas. Then they wonder why more and more people distrust them.

Trump Attacks ‘Abolish ICE’

President Trump took at the movement to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the federal agency that does interior enforcement of immigration law. Prompting this movement is the president’s policy of having ICE enforce the law more aggressively than in the past. “Tragically,” the president charged, “the brave men and women of ICE have recently been subjected to a nationwide campaign of smears, insults and attacks by politicians shamelessly catering to the extreme elements in our society.”

ACLU Sues Administration on Asylum

The radical-left American Civil Liberties has sued the Trump Administration for its “expedited removal” asylum policy. The administration affirms the traditional standards of asylum, admission on the basis of a “credible fear” of persecution on the basis of race, religion, nationality, social group, or political opinion. The ACLU wants asylum include people seeking to flee high crime rates and domestic violence. Critics maintain that this expansion would dilute the concept and meaning of asylum.

Bannon Makes Sense

The Quote Below: More Misinformation from the Media:

“Since his ouster from the White House a year ago Steve Bannon has been barnstorming across Europe meeting with figures like the former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, Nigel Farage; the French Rassemblement National head, Marine Le Pen; and the far-right Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orban. Last month Mr. Bannon announced plans to establish a foundation to support right-wing populist movements on the continent.

“Mr. Bannon isn’t driving Europe’s ever-growing xenophobia. But his ability to plant roots there and the potential that he and others see in tying together country-level anti-immigrant sentiment into a continentwide movement are both alarming and, for those of us in the United States, a reality check.

“Despite the rise of Donald Trump, views around immigration in the United States seem to favor the left. . . . [A 2018 Pew survey found] 2018. In June, only 24 percent said the amount of legal immigration into the United States should be decreased. The situation is different in much of Europe. According to the International Organization for Migration, 48 percent of Europeans believe that migration should be reduced. . . .

“There are several factors at work here, but one is clearly the continued relevance of the civil rights movement and anti-racist struggles, which won a more diverse and inclusive America. That’s no excuse for complacency or discontent about how far that progress has gone. . . .

“If Democrats don’t build an economic message for the working class, black and brown voters won’t turn out for elections, and enough white ones who do might drift toward the siren call of right-wing populism. And then the Steve Bannons of the world won’t have to look to Europe to fulfill their political dreams.” – Fighting Bannonism at Home and Abroad, The New York Times, Meagan Day and Bhaskar Sunkara, 8/7/18 [Link]

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Fact Check of Quote: This article uses the manipulative language so commonly employed by immigration enthusiasts. Thus it is “xenophobia” and “far right” for the people of a country to preserve their historic make-up, character, and culture by democratic means. That is sensible, mainstream, and moderate. The true extremism is the totalitarian effort of the European Union and its lackies to submerge the identities of European countries with mass immigration.

The Pew survey did show that a minority of Americans want legal immigration cut, but a Harvard-Harris poll at the beginning of the year found quite the opposite. Its finding was that 81 percent of Americans wanted legal immigration, now at more than a million a year, to go down to one million or less per year. Perhaps the reason for the difference is that respondents of the latter poll were given specific figures to express their preferences.

The authors linkage of mass immigration is to the Civil Rights movement is most ironic. That movement stressed the importance of American citizenship, affirming that Americans as citizens should have equal rights. Supporters of mass illegal immigration don’t seem to care about citizenship at all, and make little distinction between citizens and illegal aliens. Another goal of the civil rights movement was improving the economic status of minority citizens. Mass legal immigration works directly against that goal by competing with them for jobs and social welfare benefits.

If the Democrats really cared about poor and working minority citizens, cutting legal and illegal immigration is exactly what they would do. But will the Democrats endorse this economic message? Not likely. Their current policy works to keep minority citizens poor and alienated. That bad for them, but good for Democrat politicians who want a reliable voting bloc.

A prominent Democratic strategist has openly endorsed the strategy of mass immigration as a means for his party to seize and maintain power. Many Republicans don’t seem to care, as they push mass immigration to secure cheap labor for unscrupulous business interests.

Sessions to DOJ: Cut SPLC Ties

The Justice Department sometimes works with the radical left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an organization that generally labels support for immigration restriction as “hate.” Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the time has come for this collusion to stop. He  noted that the SPLC uses hate designations “as a weapon [to] bully and intimidate” individuals and groups it doesn’t like. ” Critics have described the SPLC as a neo-communist organization.

Yoder Invites Mass Migration

Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, strongly criticized the amendment to the 2019 spending bill authored by Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS). Yoder’s amendment would reverse the asylum reforms of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and reinstitute the Obama Administration policy of releasing illegal aliens with their promises to show up for asylum hearings. Kirsanow affirmed that the amendment would encourage “massive waves” of foreigners to enter the United States and thereby depress wages of poor American workers.
