Supreme Court rules in favor of Trump on immigration

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/5-4-ruling-supreme-court-allows-trump-plan-deny-green-n1124056

This is why I support Trump. We’re one Supreme Court justice away from Supreme-Court-mandated open borders. If Trump loses in November, we could lose the Supreme Court.

I’d like to say that every other country on the planet would deny permanent residency to an immigrant who would need to depend government assistance, but there could be some SJW-infested country in Europe that it allows it, so I can’t say for sure. There’s a lot of insanity in the world of SJWs.

This is not to say that we, as citizens of the United States, should not endeavor to make the world a better place, or that we should ignore suffering outside of our borders. But the world will not be a better place if hordes of immigrants overwhelm us and we become just another dysfunctional country. Instead, we should do what we can to make the countries these people are coming from better so they don’t have to leave. Plus we need to be alert for grifters and slackers who would take advantage of our soft-heartedness.

I say, go back to China, go back to the Caribbean

Reported by the NY Times:

The candidate, Eric L. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, spoke of how new arrivals to New York were “hijacking” apartments from longtime residents.

“Go back to Iowa,” Mr. Adams, a Democrat, said on Monday at the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network headquarters in Harlem, at his annual Martin Luther King’s Birthday event. “You go back to Ohio. New York City belongs to the people that was here and made New York City what it is.”

Imagine the uproar if a white candidate had said “go back to Puerto Rico” because Brooklyn is too crowded. I may point out that there are 176,528 Puerto Ricans in Brooklyn according to the 2010 census, which is surely a massively higher number compared to Iowans and Ohioans combined.

But the real force behind so many people being in Brooklyn is MASSIVE immigration. According to Baruch College, as of 2017 there were 959,026 foreign-born residents of Brooklyn. Out of approximately 2,583,000 total residents. And who even knows if that includes illegal aliens? He should really have said, go back to China, go back to the Caribbean, go back to Pakistan. U.S. citizens from other states have a Constitutional right to move to Brooklyn. Foreigners don’t. And illegal foreigners don’t even have a legal right to be there and they should be deported ASAP.

Imagine how much less expensive it would be to rent or buy in Brooklyn if the foreign-born, 37% of the population, were suddenly removed.

Old woman murdered by illegal alien

Reported by the NY Daily News:

The NYPD ignored a federal request to turn over an undocumented Guyanese immigrant busted in November for assaulting his father, leaving the twisted suspect free to kill helpless nonagenarian Maria Fuentes six weeks later, charged Thomas Decker, field office director for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement removal operations.

“Clearly the politicians care more about criminal illegal aliens than the citizens they are elected to serve and protect,” said Decker. “It was a deadly choice to release a man on an active ICE detainer back on the streets, and now he faces new charges, including murder.”

Will the next Democratic president destroy the United States?

I can see people thinking that the question is hyperbolic. Obama didn’t destroy the United States, and neither did Clinton.

But it feels to me like things have changed. All of the Democrats seem to have bought into extreme rhetoric on immigration. Any sort of enforcement of immigration laws at all is now seen as immoral, evil, and racist. It’s even immoral, evil and racist to use force to deport someone who has been ordered by a judge to be deported because they committed crimes in the United States. It’s likely that the next Democratic president will create de facto open borders by ordering all immigration enforcement to stand down. This will immediately become well known throughout the world, and I forsee a mass immigration of tens of millions of people that will only stop when it becomes apparent that the United States has become just as crappy as the countries that people are emigrating from.

Unless you think that President Kamala Harris will take back everything she’s said up until now and govern like Obama?

NY Post immigration op-ed

I agree with this excerpt from a NY Post op-ed by Marc Thiessen:

President Barack Obama deported far more illegal immigrants than Trump has. ­Axios reports that “under the Obama administration, total ICE deportations were above 385,000 each year in fiscal years 2009 to 2011 and hit a high of 409,849 in fiscal 2012.”

I don’t recall Democrats in Congress accusing Obama of a “crime against humanity” or actions “outside the circle of civilized human behavior.”

Back then, Democrats agreed, as Sen. Charles Schumer put it in a 2009 speech, that “illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.” Since Trump took office, Democrats have become the party of illegal immigration.

They want to decriminalize illegal border crossings, cut ICE detention beds to force the agency to release illegal immigrants and then refuse to enforce lawful deportation orders.

Excellent Tucker Carlson op-ed

Link

Just a few years ago, even the most liberal Democrats in Congress felt obligated to say patriotic things about America. They may not have felt it, but they said it. Now, it’s routine to hear Democratic presidential candidates question the basic legitimacy of the United States.

Even supposed moderates, like Joe Biden, join in.

That should worry you. No country can survive being ruled by people who hate it.

… [skipping some BS] …

Our country rescued Ilhan Omar from the single poorest place on Earth. We didn’t do it for the money, we did it because we are kind people. How did she respond to the remarkable gift we gave her?

She scolded us, called us names, showered us with contempt. It’s infuriating. More than that, it is also ominous. The United States admits more immigrants more than any other country on Earth, more than a million every year. The Democratic Party demand we increase that by and admit far more. OK, Americans like immigrants, but immigrants have got to like us back.

That’s the key, it’s essential. Otherwise, the country falls apart.

The just-world fallacy and immigration (and abortion)

Part of a comment left about immigration and Democrats:

“At some point eventually Democrats will have to realize that illegal immigration is ruinous for everything they hold dear…”

The ruinous nature of illegal immigration (and of a lot of legal immigration) to America’s future could hardly be more obvious now. WTF are these people thinking?

No, they won’t see the ruinous nature because of the just-world fallacy. As explained at the RationalWiki:

The just world hypothesis, also known as the just world fallacy, is the idea that all actions have predictable and just consequences. The hypothesis implies (although sometimes only subconsciously) a belief in some sort of universal force that ensures moral balance in the world, in such a way that a person who exhibits good and moral behavior will eventually be rewarded, while evil and immoral actions will eventually be punished. It is both a concept in theology and considered to be a cognitive bias in psychology.

Because liberals believe that allowing immigration is morally just, and restricting immigration is evil, they will NEVER believe that bad things can happen by doing the morally just thing.

We see the same fallacy in effect on this blog whenever I point out that abortion brings good results for society. Anti-abortion evangelists refuse to believe any of the statistics or evidence about abortion that disagrees with their worldview that God or some universal force or whatever will reward us for restricting abortion and punish us for allowing it.

The commenter ends by alleging that liberals have an “insane hatred of normal white people.” But liberals believe that pro-life people have an insane hatred of women. According to an article in NY Magazine, “the prevailing sentiment among abortion rights activists is that the anti-abortion movement is just applied misogyny.” So there’s a second fallacy in misattributing your ideological enemies’ motivations.

Trump wins with Mexico

I have to credit Trump’s prole method of diplomacy, Mexico agreed to some concessions.

Trump’s tweet about border security

I agree with this.

And thus my point from yesterday: Mexico, not surprisingly, isn’t eager to help Trump when his own Congress refuses to help him.

Mexican tariffs from another viewpoint

If I were an upper-class Mexican citizen, this is what I would think:

Why is Trump blaming us when illegal immigration is the fault of the U.S. Congress for not passing laws that would allow Federal agencies to deport people who shouldn’t be there? Why does Trump want us to do what his own country won’t do?
