Carlson Defies Boycott Attempt

A left-wing social media campaign is trying to pressure advertisers to pull their ads from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program. Carlson’s regularly speaks in favor of immigration law enforce and reasonable levels of legal immigration. 

The Fox News commentator spoke defiantly against this effort to silence him:  “It happens all the time–the enforcers scream, ‘Racist!’ on Twitter, until everybody gets intimidated and changes the subject to the Russia investigation or some other distraction. It’s a tactic, a well worn one–nobody thinks it’s real, and it won’t work with this show, we’re not intimidated. We plan to try to say what’s true until the last day.”

What about America’s Poor?

In response to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s claim that a border wall is “immoral,” Betsy McCaughey of Real Clear Politics states that “Not building a wall is what’ truly immoral.  Allowing destitute, uneducated people with limited job prospects to flood across the southern border into the United States forces taxpayers here to toil longer and pay more in taxes to feed and house them, accommodate their children in public schools and pay for their medical care

“Americans are already maxed out caring for our own needy, including the homeless sprawled on city streets. This nation has 40 million in poverty, 1 out of every 8 people and 1 out of every 6 children. That’s far higher than in Canada or Great Britain. Our country doesn’t need to import more poverty.

“For [this] reason, Trump is also proposing that only immigrants who can support themselves without government handouts be granted green cards and permanent status.

Acting AG Calls for Asylum Reform

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has called for steps to stop the abuse of our asylum laws by illegal aliens. He observed:

“Asylum is only  for those who fear persecution on the basis of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.

“But what happened is that word got out that you could game the system.  People found out that you could apply for asylum and then get a work authorization in the United States while you waited for a court date.  That might take years—and you could disappear before that ever happened anyway.

“Word got out that you could cross the border illegally, live here as an illegal alien—and then, if you got caught, you could just claim asylum.”

Trump: Military Can Build Wall

President Trump said that if the Democrats will not support legislation to build a border wall, we will use the military to accomplish that task. He stated, “People do not yet realize how much of the wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our country, the military will build the remaining sections of the wall. They know how important it is!”

Aliens Use Kids for Fraud

Illegal aliens know that they have a better chance of remaining in the United States if they bring children with them and claim they are the parents of the children.
