80% of Illegal Alien Minors Placed in Care of Other Illegals

Eighty percent of the unaccompanied minors caught illegally entering the U.S. in recent months have been placed by the Obama administration in the care of other illegals, according to data obtained by the Associated Press.  The young illegals are directed to return for an immigration hearing, but few bother.

The Globe Endorses Obama as Dictator

The case, filed by Texas and 25 other states, challenges President Obama’s 2014 executive order that would have allowed some unauthorized immigrants to apply for temporary work permits and shielded them from deportation. That policy, now on hold due to the court challenge, would allow federal immigration authorities to focus their resources where they are needed—for instance, on violent criminals. . . . Take student marijuana possession . . . Federal prosecutors hardly ever pursue the crime, even though it clearly violates federal law. . . . Obama, ironically, has overseen the deportation of more undocumented immigrants than his predecessor. . . . Indeed, the paralysis on Capitol Hill only makes it more important for the Supreme Court to protect the president’s authority to direct immigration policy. Editorial, Boston Globe, 1/24/16

Fact Check: This week the Supreme Court began deliberating on the lawsuit of 26 states against President Obama’s unilateral edicts granting legal status and work permits to millions of illegal aliens. This is a blatant violation of the constitutional separation of powers, which provides that the legislative branch (Congress) makes laws and the executive (president) enforces them.

President Obama himself, on a number of occasions, affirmed this position in the past—before the call of political expediency moved him to throw away principles and act in the fashion of a dictator. Here’s one of those quotes:

“America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the president, am obliged to enforce the law. I don’t have a choice about that. . . . With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that just not the case. . . . [W]e’ve got three branches of government. . . . Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”

The pretext Obama uses for his action is that it was “prosecutorial discretion,” an accepted legal principle that government may set priorities of enforcement to make the most effective use of limited resources. For example, a police agency might give higher priority in drug law enforcement to stopping heroin traffic than marijuana possession because heroin is a more dangerous drug. But this doesn’t mean that marijuana possession has ceased to be a crime or that the law against it will never be enforced.

By analogy, that is what Obama has done with his edict. He has proclaimed that the law pertaining to millions of illegal aliens is no longer in effect. And on top of that he is offering work permits to these illegal aliens in flat violation of the law forbidding employment of illegal aliens. To extend the analogy with marijuana, it would be as if pot users were issued official documents allowing them not only to possess the drug but sell it as well.

Prosecutorial discretion prioritizes laws; it does not abolish or change them. That is the task of the legislative branch. Obama twists the meaning of prosecutorial discretion justifies it by claiming that his policy of non-enforcement against millions of illegal aliens has allowed authorities to concentrate on smaller numbers hard-core criminals who pose a significant danger to society. But in reality the Obama Administration has done a poor job even at this task, even releasing dangerous criminals after having them in custody. It is clear that prosecutorial discretion for Obama is just a smokescreen to destroy immigration law enforcement.

Another example of fraud is the claim repeated by the Globe that before his edicts that Obama deported more illegal aliens than his predecessors. This is a big lie which never seems to die. It came about by the administration padding deportation statistics with illegal aliens sent back at the border, a method of calculation not used by previous administrations. The purpose of this statistical sleight of hand, evidently, was to give the impression of toughness in order to help justify the leniency of the edicts.

The Globe claims that the “paralysis” Congress was reason for Obama to act as he did. But this so-called paralysis was simply the refusal of Congress to enact amnesty for illegal aliens. Evidently the Globe’s editorial writers believe that if Congress does not legislate as the president desires, then the president has the right to ignore both Congress and the Constitution. This seems a common viewpoint in the “mainstream media.” It is a viewpoint indifferent to rule of law and its provisions which safeguard our freedom.

Sheriff: Out of Control Border Jeopardizes Security

In testimony before Congress, Sheriff Charles Jenkins of Frederick County, Maryland, stated what without a secure border, every county in the United States will become a “border county.” Said Jenkins, “Open borders, reckless sanctuary policies, and failure to enforce our immigration laws have greatly impacted public safety and national security throughout every jurisdiction of this country. Every single day, more Americans are becoming victims of senseless crimes, being injured and killed by criminal aliens, many are transnational gang members.”

IRS Chief: OK for Illegals to Use Fraudulent SS Numbers

In response to questioning by Sen. Dan Coates (R-IN), IRS Commissioner John Koskinen admitted that the IRS will not take any action against illegal aliens who file tax returns with fraudulent Social Security numbers. Coates stated, “What we learned is that . . . the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns . . . . We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number. . . .”

Tennessee Moves to Sue Feds on Refugees

The Tennessee General Assembly is moving to sue the Obama Administration over its policies to force refugee resettlement in Tennessee. The sponsor of this action in the House is Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver (R-Lancaster) who stated, “As [it] is moving forward, other states will read our actions. I am pleased that seventy-four of my colleagues believe wholeheartedly that Tennessee is responsible for asserting our state’s sovereignty rights under the Tenth Amendment.

“We have seen unprecedented federal overreach during the Obama administration. We need clarity and definition concerning the relationship between the federal government and our state when it comes to appropriations to pay for the federal Refugee Resettlement Program.”

Reason Admits Its Treason

One cannot claim to be a champion of liberty and limited [power of government] while calling for measures to prevent people without papers from finding work and making a home in the United States. . . . Donald Trump makes the most noise about ‘illegal immigration,’ which is merely government-speak for people coming here without the permission of politicians and bureaucrats. . . . So if all people are created equal, why should some have to carry government papers just because they were born on the other side of an arbitrary line on a map. . . . Trump and his rivals insist that if government does not enforce the borders we have no country. Perhaps, but so what? As Patrick Henry said when asserting the rights of Americans before the American Revolution: ‘If this be treason, make the most of it.” – Reason, Justice, Not Amnesty, for ‘Illegal’ Immigrants, Sheldon Richman, 2/7/16

Fact Check: Reason is a flagship magazine of the libertarian movement which unreasonably maintains that humans are (or at least should be) atomized beings with no higher aspirations than self-interest. Ayn Rand, a prominent theorist of libertarians, proclaimed that selfishness is a “virtue,” and that loyalty to anything beyond self is “collectivism”—which is oppressive evil and destructive to self.

Although Rand apparently didn’t come to the following conclusion, quite a number of libertarians have: namely, that loyalty to country—patriotism—is collectivism. And given Rand’s premises, this is an entirely logical conclusion. But it is one totally at odds with human nature as revealed through history. Commonly we find our individual fulfillment in allegiances and loyalties to collective entities beyond ourselves—to our families, our communities, and our nations just to name a few.

As Americans we have loyalty to our country and its defining characteristics. Our border is not an arbitrary line but a defining marker of who we are and where we are. Furthermore, it is not a whim of “politicians and bureaucrats” to enforce our borders and protect our national identity, but rather it is the expressed will of the American people through democratic decision-making. Interestingly, even Richman seems to have an inkling of this understanding when he endorses Patrick Henry’s statement about the “rights of Americans.”

In any case, as Richman speaks of liberty he would deny Americans the liberty to decide what kind of society we want to have. And ironically he would destroy the kind of minimal-government society that libertarians claim they seek. Mass immigration has brought us many people who have little understanding of rule of law and limited government, and their numbers are overwhelming our powers of assimilation. As time goes on, they will start imposing their preferences as they vote.

Richman quotes the phrase “all men are created equal” from the Declaration of Independence to suggest that all men are interchangeable and that we cannot prefer any human to any other. That, of course, is absurd. It’s like telling parents that they must love all children in the world as much as their own children. Similarly, Americans are under no moral obligation to put the interests of foreigners ahead of their countrymen.

That definitely was what Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration, believed. In his Notes on the State of Virginia, he warned of the dangers of mass immigration, stating that “[Immigrants] will bring with them the principles of the governments they leave, or if able to throw them off, it will be in exchange for an unbridled licentiousness, passing, as usual from one extreme to another. It would be a miracle were they to stop precisely at the point of temperate liberty.”

Libertarianism doesn’t abide in the real world, but it is most useful to worldly interests. Specifically, it gives justification to unscrupulous businessmen who want open borders to obtain an endless supply of cheap labor. Libertarians call this “free enterprise,” but it is not free at all to taxpayers who have to provide welfare to this low-wage workforce.

Selfishness and promotion of greed are prominent moral failings of the libertarian creed. And another one is treason—which Richman and Reason blatantly admit. Loyal Americans should make the most of that understanding.

Media Elites Plot Propaganda Campaign

Media elites such as Rupert Murdoch and Michael Bloomberg have created the Partnership for a New American Economy (PNAE) to encourage cities to promote mass immigration. According to WorldNetDaily columnist Leo Hohmann, “The grants [from PNAE] are to be used primarily for ‘educating’ the public on the merits of expanded immigration. PNAE works with the George Soros-funded groups National Immigration Forum and Welcoming America to educate Americans about the wonders of mass immigration. They say it creates economic growth and vitality and the more immigrants and refugees that flow into a city, state or county the more prosperity they can expect to enjoy.”
