The problem with illegal immigration explained in short order

Via Proof Positive!

“My dad didn’t bring us here to be Mexicans. He brought us here to be Americans. My dad followed the law and the rules, and those rules are there because it weeds out those who really don’t want to truly be Americans, and those who pose a danger to the United States.”

That really says it all

Well, this is encouraging

Seems that our president has had an affect on unvetted refugees entering our country. Pacific Pundit has the details

While we are dealing with border invaders to the south, at least one thing good is happening. Syrian “refugee” admittance to the United States is at a fraction of the rate that it was under Obama’s final year of his reign of terror.

Sorry, but helping illegal aliens break the law should not be something a church does

Let us be honest here, not every illegal immigrant is a bad person or violent criminal. In fact the vast majority are not dangerous. But some are. So, if anyone, or a state, or a church helps those who are dangerous enter, or remain here illegally, then they are, in part responsible for the crimes that person will commit.

What, Ann Coulter is still trying to be relevant to, well, anyone?

When Coulter speaks, all I hear is “LOOK AT ME”! I do not hear principles, or beliefs at all. Here is her latest attempt at carnival barking

Controversial conservative political commentator Ann Coulter offered her two cents about troops on the southern border this week.

First, during an appearance Tuesday on conservative radio show host Lars Larson’s program, Coulter suggested at least one illegal immigrant would have to be shot to teach others a lesson.

She issued the remark while responding to news that President Donald Trump plans to deploy the National Guard to protect the southern U.S. border.

“[W]hat are they going to do, shoot the illegals? I mean, both Obama and Bush did this too. No, there’s a reason the chant was ‘we want a wall.” We don’t want to use the military to process illegals and let them into the country,” she initially said.

Ah yes, a wall, that is all we need, a wall. Build a wall, and do nothing else, just a wall. There are many ways to combat illegal aliens entering the nation, the wall is one, it is a part. Troops on the border is another. By the way Ann, those troops might also aid in building a wall

When Larson pushed back by noting that visible troops along the border might serve as a deterrent, Coulter then dropped her flip remark about shooting an illegal.

“I don’t know, we’ll see,” she said. “If I were an illegal — I mean, unless they’re going to shoot one and send a message to the rest, as Voltaire’s line in Candide is, ‘We hang one to encourage the others’ — if you shoot one to encourage the others, maybe they’ll learn, but otherwise, we’ll see, we’ll see.”

Oh good grief! The reason this was not as effective in previous cases was the rules of engagement that were issued. “Just stand there” did not work true. But I do not believe the Guard will be so handcuffed this time. If the Guard is allowed to enforce the border, and no, that does not mean shoot someone to set an example, I believe this will be a very positive step towards securing the border. 

Allow me to add that any attack on the Guard, say by cartels must be dealt with severely. Again, I believe this administration will allow the military to do its job.

How about a dose of reality for those flipping out about our military securing our borders?

Personally, I would wager that most of those aghast at our troops defending our border are afraid the move will further reduce the flow of illegals, but for those who are genuinely butthurt over the move Daniel Greenfield sets them straight

The United States has 14,000 troops in Afghanistan, 39,000 in Japan, 34,805 in Germany, 23,000 in South Korea, and around 5,200 in Iraq. Our military protects the borders of countless nations.

Except our own.

In 1919, we had 18,500 soldiers on the border. “Twice a day every foot of the border line is patrolled by cavalrymen and infantrymen,” the New York Times noted.

A hundred years later, President Trump’s proposal to use the military to secure the border is controversial even though Marines fighting drug cartels have come under fire from drug smugglers.

El Salvadoran migration has inflicted 207 murderers on this country. The migrant caravan threatening to invade this country includes migrants from El Salvador. Some of them may be MS-13 members. The Pueblo Sin Fronteras caravan of 1,000 migrants is the product of an alliance between international leftists and migrant invaders. Their goal is the invasion, colonization and occupation of America.

And the only ones defending us against them are the members of an outnumbered border patrol, threatened by both drug cartels on the other side of the border and sanctuary states in this country.

That’s why President Trump is mobilizing the troops to do the job that the Democrats won’t do.

“Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military,” President Trump said.

Some of the same politicians who oppose withdrawing our forces from Syria also oppose sending troops to secure the border. But which should be a higher priority?

As usual Greenfield brings it hard and fast to the left. Please go read it all
