Busch Ad Was ‘Fanciful’

During the Super Bowl the Anheuser-Busch beer company aired an advertisement which portrayed the company’s founder, Adolphus Busch, as one subjected to anti-immigrant prejudice. The obvious intent of the ad was to discredit opposition to immigration. In any case, a biographer of Adolphus Busch has described the content of the ad as fictitious and “fanciful.”

l6 Quotes Show America Can Exclude Any Alien

President Trump’s executive order temporarily halting admissions of citizens of seven terrorist-hotbed Muslim nations not only stirred airhead Hollywood celebrities, radical street protestors and liberal editors to new heights of unhinged rage — it has led several liberal federal judges to ignore two centuries of American law and issue orders purporting to block the presidential directives.  Aliens living abroad have no rights under the U.S. Constitution, and a moment’s thought suggests the dire national security threat that would result if any one of over 800 federal judges could prevent the U.S. government from excluding aliens.  Author and commentator Daniel Horowitz explains the well-established, essential law now being ignored by leftist open border judges in his book “Stolen Sovereignty” and a recent article “These 16 Quotes Prove America Can Exclude or Deport Any Immigrant… for Any Reason.”

WaPo Misleads on Immigrant Welfare Use in Its War Against Trump

Immigration expert and columnist Jason Richwine in a post Wednesday, “Opposition Party Misleads on Immigrant Welfare Use,” exposes the flagrant bias in a “news” story published in the Washington Post.  Following are excerpts from that post, which is well worth reading in its entirety:

Media bias is well known, but occasionally a major outlet will publish something that is so one-sided that it surprises even me.  A Washington Post article yesterday by Abigail Hauslohner and Janell Ross meets that standard.  Ostensibly a straight news piece about the Trump administration’s draft order on immigrant welfare receipt, the article instead reads like a brief from the “opposition party” as Steve Bannon would say.

Here is the most objectionable part of the article: “The draft order provides no evidence to support the claim that immigrant households are more likely to use welfare benefits, and there is no consensus among experts about immigration’s impact on such benefits.

Had the reporters googled “immigrant welfare use,” this is what would have appeared at the top of their screens:

In 2012, 51 percent of households headed by an immigrant (legal or illegal) reported that they used at least one welfare program during the year, compared to 30 percent of native households.”

As they scanned further down the results page, they would not see any contrary study claiming that immigrant households use less welfare — because no such study exists.  Even if they were unable or unwilling to learn this information from the Internet, Hauslohner and Ross could have called someone who would give them those facts.  They did not.  Representatives from immigration-boosting organizations are quoted extensively in the article, but immigration skeptics get no say at all.

There’s more.  Trying to give the impression that welfare eligibility rules are already strict, the reporters describe at length how immigrants are barred if they are likely to be “public charges,” and how legal immigrants cannot receive welfare for five years.  A balanced article would note that the public charge rule is virtually never enforced, that Congress has significantly watered down the five-year rule, and that only about 15 percent of legal immigrant residents fall within the five-year window anyway.  But this is not a balanced article.

ICE and Border Patrol Unions Endorse Trump Executive Orders

The unions that represent ICE and Border Patrol agents endorsed President Trump’s recent initiatives on immigration. In a joint press release they stated:

As representatives of the nation’s Frontline immigration officers and agents responsible for enforcing our laws and protecting our borders, we fully support and appreciate President Trump’s swift and decisive action to keep the American people safe and allow law enforcement to do its job. We applaud the three executive orders he has issued to date, and are confident they will make America safer and more prosperous. Morale amongst our agents and officers has increased exponentially since the signing of the orders. The men and women of ICE and Border Patrol will work tirelessly to keep criminals, terrorists, and public safety threats out of this country, which remains the number one target in the world – and President Trump’s actions now empower us to fulfill this life saving mission, and it will indeed save thousands of lives and billions of dollars.

The NYT Pitches a Tantrum

More Misinformation from the Mass Media:

First reflect on the cruelty of President Trump’s decision on Friday to indefinitely suspend the resettlement of Syrian refugees and temporarily ban people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States. . . . The first casualties of this bigoted, cowardly, self-defeating policy were detained early Saturday. . . . breathtaking in scope and inflammatory in tone, was issued on Holocaust Remembrance Day spoke of the President’s callousness and indifference to history. . . . The order’s language makes clear that the xenophobia and Islamophobia that penetrated Mr. Trump’s campaign are a stain to his presidency as well. Un-American as they are, they are not American policy. – Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban Is Cowardly and Dangerous, The Editorial Board, The New York Times, 1/28/17

Fact Check: One reading this unbalanced rant, particularly with its reference to the Holocaust, might get the impression that Donald Trump is contemplating a “final solution” for refugees. Alas, the reality of Trump’s policy is a sensible and moderate plan designed to protect the safety and security of American citizens.

It is not, as the Times article falsely claims, a “ban” on Muslim immigration. Specifically, it places a temporary restriction on the entry of refugees from seven countries, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen in order to establish effective screening to keep out terrorists and other criminals. These are Muslim-majority countries, but the ban applies to all of their citizens. President Trump did not arbitrarily select these countries.

As he explained, “This is not about religion—this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim and are not affected by this order. My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama Administration as sources of terror.”

Trump also capped refugee admissions this year at 50,000. The Obama Administration had projected a total of 110,000 for 2017, a figure far above the average for the past fifteen years. Trump’s limit places the ceiling closer to the norm for that time frame. That lower number will make it easier to ensure that the refugees who come are properly vetted.

The president’s proposals, once again, are moderate and reasonable. To call them bigoted, cowardly, dangerous, and un-American is rank hysteria. It is almost comical that the Times also indicts Trump for using “inflammatory” language. One must wonder what is “un-American” about safeguarding the security of Americans.

The Times editorialists, like many immigration enthusiasts, don’t seem to believe in America as a country which stands for the interests of its citizens, but rather a prototype for some kind of borderless global society. That notion is most truly un-American.

Coulter: Media Lies About Trump ‘Muslim Ban’

Ann Coulter does an effective and hilarious job exposing MSM deception in “Give Me Your Tired Arguments…” published Wednesday.  A few excerpts:

“Everything said about President Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ is a lie — including that it’s a Muslim ban.”

“Amid the hysteria over this prudent pause in refugee admissions from seven countries whose principal export is dynamite vests, it has been indignantly claimed that it’s illegal for our immigration policies to discriminate on the basis of religion.  This is often said by journalists who are only in America because of immigration policies that discriminated on the basis of religion.”

“Americans are weary of taking in these pricey Third World immigrants, who show their gratitude by periodically erupting in maniacal violence — in, for example, San Bernardino, Orlando, New York City, Fort Hood, Boston, Chattanooga, Bowling Green and St. Cloud.”

“While it’s fantastic news that most Muslim refugees aren’t terrorists, the downside is: They’re not refugees, they’re not brilliant, they don’t have a constitutional right to come here and they’re very, very expensive.”

Tax Illegal Aliens to Build Wall

David North with the Center for Immigration Studies has some proposals to raise money for building a border fence on the Mexican border which would not cost American taxpayers or disrupt trade with Mexico. One is to tax remittances on money sent home by illegal aliens. Said North, “Put a 2 percent fee on all outgoing remittances. The rate is low enough to discourage alternative ways of sending money to the homelands, and the paper created will give IRS good leads for collecting unpaid income taxes.”

Malkin: Open Borders Lobby Exposed

Columnist Michelle Malkin comments on the unhinged opposition to President Trump’s initial attempts to restore enforcement of immigration law:

“For years, left-wingers would contest my use of the term ‘open borders lobby’ because, they sternly rebuked me, nooooobody in America seriously believes in open borders….  This weekend, thousands of anti-Trump liberals took to the streets, airports and college campuses chanting ‘all are welcome’ and shrieking ‘let them in’ to protest White House executive orders enforcing our borders.  In case their position wasn’t clear enough, the mobs bellowed;

‘No borders, no nations, f— deportations!’  ‘No walls, no borders, f— executive orders!’

Thirty-three opposed the ban, and ten percent were undecided.
