What’s going on that’s not Star Trek

with 13 comments

I can’t think of anything else worth blogging about.

An article in The Atlantic says that it’s racist to be against immigration and therefore Fox News is racist. You will just get aggravated if you read the article. On the other hand, the article admits that Trump and the anti-immigration movement has been winning. This makes me more happy than ever that I voted for Trump.

Judge Kethledge’s liberal pro-immigrant decision in Patel v. USCIS (6th Cir. 2013)

https://www.leagle.com/decision/infco20131011056

District Court said that the illegal alien (an Indian guy who had overstayed his visa and was complaining that a potential employer was denied an H-1B visa to hire him) had no standing to sue.

One of the three judges on the appellate panel (who was appointed by Bill Clinton) agreed with the District Court, but Kethledge overruled and said that the illegal alien has standing.

Ann Coulter supports Kavanaugh

* * *

Amy Coney Barrett, with no judicial track record in this area, but who is a Catholic zealot (remember that the Pope favors open borders) with two adopted Haitian kids, is probably open borders as well.

According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops:

In January 2003, the U.S. Catholic Bishops released a pastoral letter on migration entitled, “Strangers No Longer: Together on the Journey of Hope.” In their letter, the Bishops stressed that, “[w]hen persons cannot find employment in their country of origin to support themselves and their families, they have a right to find work elsewhere in order to survive. Sovereign nations should provide ways to accommodate this right.” No. 35. The Bishops made clear that the “[m]ore powerful economic nations…ave a stronger obligation to accommodate migration flows.”

Furthermore, the Catholic Bishops support expansion of chain migration:

Family‐based Immigration Reform: It currently takes years for family members to be reunited through the family‐based legal immigration system. This leads to family breakdown and, in some cases, illegal immigration. Changes in family‐based immigration should be made to increase the number of family visas available and reduce family reunification waiting times.

Trinitario gang

Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinitario

Article about recent gang violence in New York City: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2018/06/26/trinitarios-street-gang/

So there are about 1.4 million Dominicans in the United States, and this gang has as many as 80,000 members in the United States alone, which means that more than 5% of Dominicans are members of this violent gang, that’s a very high percentage. President Trump is 100% right when he says that we’re letting in a lot of very bad people.

Why do we need more immigration? Fleeing gang violence in the Dominican Republican? Well now we’ve imported the same gang violence into the United States.

Trump v. Hawaii (2018) and Ms. L v. ICE (S.D. Cal. 2018)

The majority says that Trump has the same power to deny entry to foreigners as any other president, and stuff he said while he was campaigning doesn’t change that, and that the standard of review is rational basis.

Sotomayor’s dissent goes off the rails.

The lesson here is that we should thank God that the Republicans in Congress did what Joe Biden would have done if the sides were reversed, and refused to seat Obama’s pick who would have been a fifth liberal justice, eventually leading to the Supreme Court deciding that people in foreign countries have a constitutional right to move here.

Justice Thomas’s concurring opinion was most notable, because he writes about the problem of District Court judges abusing their power in issuing sweeping universal injunctions, and the timing is impeccable because later that same day, a liberal District Court judge in San Diego ruled that Trump isn’t allowed to detain children or their parents. So in other words, the judge has ordered that we return to the catch and release policy of Obama.

It’s not over. Hopefully the other conservative judges on the court will pay attention to Thomas and stomp on these out-of-control District Court judges.

Trump caves in?

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

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.
