Trump caves in?

with 62 comments

Not sure what this means.

Mr. Trump’s executive order directed the government’s lawyers to ask for a modification of an existing 1997 consent decree, known as the Flores settlement, that currently prohibits the federal government from keeping children in immigration detention — even if they are with their parents — for more than 20 days.

But it is unclear whether the court will agree to that request. If not, the president is likely to face an immediate legal challenge from immigration activists on behalf of families that are detained in makeshift facilities.

Lion editorial on immigration

with 140 comments

The fakestream media is going full-bore propaganda mode against Trump’s border immigration enforcement. This propaganda is especially aimed at the soccer-mom voter.

The liberals and their allies in the fakestream media don’t genuinely want to solve the problem of illegal immigration. They think massive immigration, whether legal or illegal, is a desirable thing and not a problem. But Republican voters support the president, so hopefully Republicucks who are not supporting Trump on this will face the wrath of voters the next time there’s a primary election. Like Mark Sanford did.

If Congress would fund the wall, then families wouldn’t be able to cross the border because of the wall, so the problem of illegal immigrants bringing their children with them would go away.

Giving special privileges to illegal immigrants with children would just send a message to the world that there’s a loophole for getting into the country if you bring children with you, and there would be a massive increase of illegals coming to exploit the loophole.

There are more than 2 million people in prison in the United States, and when criminals have children, we tell them “too bad so sad” and send them to prison anyway. Allowing people to get away with crime because they have children would just encourage more crime. It’s the same at the border.

Ultimately, the problem is HBD denialism. Liberals believe that the soil of the United States has magic properties that turn poor uneducated non-Asian minorities into smart college educated people who found the next Silicon Valley company. No, that’s not what happens. People with low IQ have low-IQ genes and they give birth to low-IQ children, and they will make the United States become like Brazil and Colombia and Honduras.

Furthermore, among the right, we have a problem of evangelical Christians who support massive immigration from Latin and South America because they think that it will make America more anti-abortion. Well I say to them the same thing we used to say to communist sympathizers, if you think that Colombia is such a great country because abortion is illegal, why don’t you move there?

Also, I am happy to say that various commenters who insisted, once upon a time, that Trump’s anti-immigration campaign rhetoric was bullshit and that once he became President he’d be just like McCain, well they have been proven to be wrong, Trump is keeping his campaign promises to control illegal immigration.

Racist lawyer proves anti-Semites wrong

https://nypost.com/2018/05/17/racist-lawyers-restaurant-meltdown-wasnt-his-first-rodeo/

Anti-Semites believe that all Jews love immigration, and that the mainstream media protects Jews from scrutiny.

The so-called “racist lawyer” Aaron Schlossberg proves the anti-Semites wrong! Here we have a Jewish man who hates immigrants, and we see that being Jewish gives him no protection from being torn town by the mainstream media.

What will his newfound infamy do for his law practice?

High school imposter in GQ

https://www.gq.com/story/the-great-high-school-impostor

I enjoyed this article about an illegal Ukranian immigrant who posed as an American high school student five years younger than his real age. From the perspective of the government, his biggest crime was having sex with a girl in his high school.

Sweden: crime-ridden because of immigration

https://www.politico.eu/article/sweden-bombings-grenade-attacks-violent-reality-undoing-peaceful-self-image-law-and-order/

Article in Politico about how peaceful Sweden has become crime-ridden because of immigration.

The head of the paramedics’ union Ambulansförbundet, Gordon Grattidge, and his predecessor Henrik Johansson recently told me in an interview that some neighborhoods are definitely no-go for ambulance drivers — at least without police protection.

Neil Gorsuch goes liberal: Sessions v. Dimaya (2018)

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-court-deportation/supreme-court-restricts-deportations-of-immigrant-felons-idUSKBN1HO230

The court, in a 5-4 ruling in which President Donald Trump’s conservative appointee Neil Gorsuch joined the court’s four liberal justices, sided with convicted California burglar James Garcia Dimaya, a legal immigrant from the Philippines.

The court upheld a 2015 lower court ruling that the Immigration and Nationality Act provision requiring Dimaya’s deportation created uncertainty over which crimes may be considered violent, risking arbitrary enforcement in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

He didn’t stay conservative very long. The next Justice Souter?

Justice Thomas writes an excellent dissent. With Scalia dead, Thomas holds the torch common sense. Link to PDF of decision: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/17pdf/15-1498_1b8e.pdf

When the Huffington Post is right

According to this Huffington Post op-ed, the federal government is preventing pregnant refugees in custody from getting abortions.

The last thing we want is baby refugees, who automatically get U.S. citizenship! Really dumb federal policy. The Huffington Post is right!

Calais, not what it once was

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-europe-migrants-france/france-sends-police-as-migrant-gangs-clash-in-calais-idUSKBN1FM1O7

Calais was a place in France that I remember from watching Darkest Hour, where a small force of British soldiers bravely held out against superior Nazi forces.

But today, it’s overrun by “migrant gangs.” What was the point of retaking France from the Nazis only to let it fall to “migrant gangs”?

Trump had better build that wall to prevent (more) cities in the United States from turning into Calais.

What does merit-based immigration look like?

It looks like the IT department of the company where I work, except that employers won’t even have to demonstrate that the position can’t be filled by an American (even though that requirement is barely enforced if at all). The mere fact that they can do some IT job for less money than Americans will demonstrate they have “merit” to immigrate here.

Amnesty for 1.8 million illegal aliens?

Trump’s amnesty plus citizenship plan is not why so many voters boarded the Trump train.

Reagan granted amnesty to 2.9 million illegals in exchange for laws that would supposedly prevent illegal aliens from working in this country.

The laws that were supposed to prevent illegal aliens from working were violated by everyone and barely enforced. The message to the third world was come here and maybe you too will get amnesty and until then you can work and make money. The result was a massive increase in illegal immigration.

It feels like we are making the same mistake again. And the proposed Trump plan doesn’t even contain mandatory E-Verify or any other laws that would put a stop to illegal aliens working here illegally and stealing jobs from American citizens.

* * *

I am not totally against the possibility of amnesty, but first there needs to be PROOF. PROOF that this time we will crack down on illegal immigration. Amnesty should only be granted AFTER we have implemented tough immigration enforcement and PROVEN that we can prevent people from coming here and working here illegally.
