Hungarian PM Sounds Easter Warning

In his Easter address Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban affirmed that mass immigration threatens Europe’s identity, particularly its Christian heritage. He stated, “Today we live in a time when international politics is a battlefield. The independence and freedom of European nations are at stake. And at the center of the battlefield is migration. . . .  [W]e want to preserve the foundations. We do not want parallel societies , we do not want population exchanges, and we do not want to replace Christian Civilization with a different kind.”

Orban also expressed strong criticism for billionaire currency speculator George Soros for supporting mass immigration. Said the prime minister, “George Soros must not be underestimated: he is a powerful billionaire of enormous determination who, when it comes to his interests, respects neither God not man. . . . [He] is spending endless amounts of money to support illegal immigration. He wants to keep the pressure on Hungary: the county which expects even the likes of George Soros to obey its laws.”

Millions of Aliens Illegally Registered to Vote in U.S.

As many as 2.2 million non-citizen immigrants in the U.S. are likely illegally registered to vote, according to a report by a non-profit research organization.

James Agresti of the non-profit research group Just Facts said that of the estimated 12 million illegal aliens living in the U.S., as many as  800,000 to 2.2 million are likely registered to vote.

His findings were  bolstered by The National Hispanic Survey survey conducted by McLaughlin and Associates to gauge the opinions of Hispanics living in the U.S. on a wide range of issues.  A shocking 13 percent of admitted non-citizen Hispanic respondents in the survey said they were registered to vote.

“Contrary to the claims of many media outlets and so-called fact-checkers, this nationally representative scientific poll confirms that a sizable number of non-citizens in the U.S. are registered to vote,” Agresti said.

Agresti said applying the 13 percent figure from the survey to 2013 U.S. Census numbers for non-citizen Hispanic adults would amount to 1.5 million illegally registered Latinos.

In 2013, the Census reported that 11.8 million non-citizen Hispanic adults lived here.

As the nation’s immigrant population grows, both legal and illegal, the issue of non-citizens voting illegally has caught the attention of political party organizations. Aliens tend to vote Democratic rather than Republican.

In 2014 two professors at Old Dominion University and one at George Mason University collaborated to produce the first data-driven analysis of non-citizen voting, relying on the biennial Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES), headquartered at Harvard University, with polling by YouGov.

Relying on the CCES responses to citizenship questions, the ODU team estimated that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in the 2008 election. They estimated a range as low as 38,000 and as high at 2.8 million.

The 2013 Hispanic Survey by McLaughlin and Associates confirms the ODU study. The Hispanic Survey’s 13 percent registration rate is right in line with what the CCES data indicates in multiple elections.

Agresti said the ODU study found that in 2008, 2010 and 2012, anywhere between 14.5 percent and 15.6 percent of self-declared non-citizen adults were registered to vote.

In other words, the CCES and National Hispanic Survey came to similar conclusions even though they are based on different sample sizes and methodologies.

Maryland Rejects Sanctuary Status

A bill to make Maryland a sanctuary state failed to pass the State House. Sanctuary advocates in Maryland had hoped that the legislation would be a challenge to the Trump Administration’s anti-sanctuary policy. The case in the state of an illegal alien charged with raping a 14-year-old school girl helped to sway sentiment against the legislation.

NYT Pushes Mexican Propaganda

More Misinformation from the Media:

The United States invasion of Mexico in 1846 inflicted a painful wound that, in the past 170 years, turned into a scar. . . [There is] the need to nourish a debate on the true history of a war the United States has conveniently forgotten or camouflaged and which now, more than ever, should be honestly remembered as it was. It’s a matter of an enormous crime, which leads to a question: how much prosperity of the United States stems from the development of territories originally inhabited by Mexicans and ripped away from Mexico through an invasion and a war of territorial conquest. – Will Mexico Get Half of Its Territory Back?, The Opinion Pages, The New York Times, Enrique Kruse.

But the best and most just reparation would be American immigration reform that could open the road to citizenship for the descendants of those Mexicans who suffered the unjust loss of half their territory.

Fact Check: This article by Mexican Enrique Krauze basically maintains that the United States owes Mexico a tremendous debt for the alleged injustice of the Mexican War. And to help pay off that debt, Kruse recommends that the United States grant amnesty to illegal aliens from Mexico.

Krause relies on the false historical narrative that the Big Bully, the United States, picked a war with poor defenseless Mexico in order to seal her territory. A good corrective to this narrative is Blood Over Texas by Stanford H. Montalgne.

After Mexico won her war of independence from Spain in 1821, the Mexicans laid claim to the territories north of the Rio Grande formerly claimed by Spain. This was sparsely-inhabited land where more Indians lived than Hispanic people, and many of the latter had little sense of identity with the new country of Mexico.

The Mexican government want to populate the territory of what became Texas, but few of their people wanted to go there for fear of Indians. As a solution the Mexican government invited Americans to come in and settle. To entice them it offered them various freedoms and rights. Many Americans took them up on the offer.

Things went well until the Mexican dictator Santa Anna came to power. He revoked the rights previously granted the Texans, both Anglo and Hispanic, which caused them to revolt. Acting as a bully, Santa Anna led an army north to crush them. But the Texans managed to defeat his forces and gain their independence. That was in 1836, and nine years later Texas opted to join the United States.

These events set the stage for the Mexican-American War. Still smarting from their defeat in Texas, the Mexicans looked for revenge. They wanted war, and they believed they could win it. One reason was that their regular army was significantly larger than the American regular army and more combat experienced. Also they believed that impending conflict between the U.S. and Great Britain would divide American forces.

There was a clash on the border. War followed, and it did not go well for Mexico. At the end of the conflict, the Mexicans ceded their claim to territories west of Texas to the coast of California. Many of the inhabitants, particularly California were happy to be rid of Mexican misrule. As part of the treaty ending the war Mexico accepted $15 million from the U.S. With that payment—which the Mexicans could have refused on principle—Mexico relinquished any claim to the northern territories.

The claim that Mexico would be better off economically today if it had those territories is belied by the fact that much land in Mexico is just as rich in resources as those northern lands. The poverty of  Mexico stems from authoritarian rule and a culture of corruption, rather than a lack of resources.

Mexican elites prefer this status quo, and to prevent revolutionary pressures from changing it, they promote the movement of their poor people to the United States in defiance of our immigration laws. One those elites is multi-billionaire Carlos Slim. By interesting coincidence, Slim is the top shareholder of The New York Times. Could this be one reason why the Times runs blatant Mexican propaganda like the article by Mr. Kruse?

Sessions: ‘Catch and Release’ Over in Trump Era

Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared “a new era” in immigration law enforcement on Tuesday, saying his Justice Department will take an active role in stemming illegal immigration by bringing stiffer criminal charges against repeat illegal immigrants and smugglers.  

“For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era,” Mr. Sessions said during a visit to the border at Nogales, Arizona.  “The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our laws, and the catch and release policies of the past are over.”

Higher Crime in Sanctuary Cities

Advocates of sanctuary cities often cite a study by university researchers in California and Iowa which claims that crime rates are not higher in in those cities. That was the official conclusion of the study. But WorldNetDaily found that the data gathered for the study actually indicate that crime rates are higher in sanctuary cities, where authorities shield illegal aliens from immigration law enforcement.

NY Uses Taxpayer Money to Give Lawyers to Aliens

The New York state budget under Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo sets aside a whopping $10 million to provide legal services to immigrants, including deportable illegal aliens.

The 2017-2018 budget funnels $4 million of the funds directly to the New York Family Unity Project, which says its mission is to give free legal services to deportable aliens to protect them from expulsion.

The NYFUP is a project of a radical left-wing group calling itself the Versa Institute of Justice.  The Institute says America’s justice system is “brutal” and that the institute’s purpose is “to drive change” and “build and improve” America’s justice system.

State Sen. Jeffrey Klein said the taxpayers’ money will be used to stop deportations of illegals and help process green card applications.

Other groups that are part of the project’s coaltion hope the program will expand to other states.

“The statewide expansion of [the project] will help thousands of unjust deportations and ensure due process for immigrants targeted by harsh immigration enforcement policies,” said Ana Maria Archila, co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy, a member of the Unity Project. “New York is setting a powerful example that we hope other state and local governments will follow.”

The remainder of the $10 million budget allocation will reportedly be disbursed to other left-wing groups that promote immigration, including the New York Immigration Coalition, the Empire Justice Center, the Northern Manhattan Immigration Coalition for Immigrant Rights, and the Hispanic Federation.

The Versa Institute says that among its main strategies are other efforts aimed at “shrinking the jailed population in the United States” by “reducing police over-reliance on arrest.”

Trump Nominee Is Disappointing

Immigration control supporters were disappointed by President Trump’s nomination of Kevin Hassett to the Council of Economic Advisors. Hassert is a globalist and a mass immigration advocate.

He stated: “With lackluster GDP growth threatening to become our new normal, allowing more immigrants to enter for the sake of employment is one of the few policies that might restore our old normal. If the U.S. doubled its total immigration and prioritized bringing in new workers, it could add more than half a percentage point a year to expected GDP growth.”

Adding more workers will expand the GDP, but expanding it in this fashion does not mean more wealth and better wages for average Americans. But it does mean more profits for economic elites.

A Key Issue: Labor, Automation, and Immigration

A common claim to justify mass immigration is that it is necessary to provide workers. Otherwise, we would have a labor shortage. This is not true, and one reason is that our economy is on the threshold of a major shift to automation. The links below offer perspectives on this pending change. They provide different viewpoints on what the extent it will be, but they agree it will be significant. With automation set to take so many jobs in the near future, we don’t need immigration to provide an adequate workforce. Some say that agriculture is one field where we will always have a domestic labor shortage. The last link shows how automation can overcome this problem.
