Poll: America’s Minorities Oppose Illegal Immigration

A new Harvard/Harris Poll confirms that it’s not just “racist whites” who are against illegal immigration but also a majority of black Americans and 61 percent of Hispanic Americans as well. The poll demonstrates they would be more likely to support an anti-illegal immigration presidential candidate by 63 percent and 61 percent respectively. Overall, the poll revealed seven in ten U.S. voters are more likely to support a 2020 presidential candidate who supports “strengthening our border to reduce illegal immigration.” Read more…

The overwhelming majority of American voters say they are more likely to support 2020 presidential candidates who oppose illegal immigration to the United States, a new poll finds.

The latest Harvard/Harris Poll reveals that about 70 percent, or seven-in-ten, U.S. voters said they would be more likely to support a 2020 presidential candidate who stands for “strengthing our border to reduce illegal immigration” to the country.

Only 30 percent of U.S. voters said they would be less likely to support a 2020 presidential candidate who supported reducing illegal immigration.

ICE Released 218,400 Migrant “Family Members”

New data obtained by the Washington Examiner reveals that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released some 218,400 illegal immigrant “family members” into the United States between December 21, 2018, and July 28 of this year. Of course, many members of that nearly quarter million-strong number may just been unrelated adults traveling with children and benefitting from America’s generous asylum policies and the politics of overcrowded facilities. Now, they are presumably in line with 900,000 other asylum candidates backlogged and awaiting adjudication-assuming they bother to show up in court. Read more…

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The federal Homeland Security agency tasked with removing people illegally present in the country has released a couple hundred thousand immigrant families into the interior of the United States since late December, according to data obtained by the Washington Examiner. Those let loose will not be subject to deportation, at least not until after a hearing they are supposed to attend that is years away.

A total 218,400 people who either illegally entered the country or showed up without proper documentation at a port of entry along the southwest border were let go from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody and set free in the U.S. between Dec. 21, 2018 through July 28.

All of those released were family units, which means each person arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border with a child or parent. Adults sometimes travel with children they are unrelated to and claim to be a family.

Kamala Flips on Decriminalizing Illegal Immigration

Kamala Harris now appears to be flip-flopping on her support for decriminalizing illegal immigration. “I’m not in favor of decriminalizing or not having consequence for, let me be very clear, we have to have a secure border, but I am in favor of saying that we’re not going to treat people who are undocumented cross the border as criminals, that is correct, that is correct.” Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

It appears that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has wavered on her support (or lack thereof) for the decriminalization of unauthorized border crossings.

As noted by Fox News, Kamala Harris notoriously joined her fellow 2020 contenders at the first Democratic Party presidential debate in raising hands in support of decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings. This past Friday, however, the senator seemed to reverse — or, at minimum, muddle — her position when pressed about it on “The View” by Meghan McCain.

“That is not correct. I’m not in favor of decriminalizing or not having consequence for, let me be very clear, we have to have a secure border, but I am in favor of saying that we’re not going to treat people who are undocumented cross the border as criminals, that is correct, that is correct,” Harris told McCain.

Omar Wants Taxpayers to Fund Illegals’ Abortions

Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) clearly thinks taxpayers should foot the bill for illegal aliens’ abortions.”No one should fear receiving medical care because they are undocumented. We must ensure that all people in our country have access to reproductive health care,” Omar tweeted Monday. Her political pandering disregards the fact that the Hyde Amendment prohibits federal funding for most abortions regardless of legal status, and Islam decidedly does not allow abortion. Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar believes illegal immigrants should have taxpayer-funded abortions.

“No one should fear receiving medical care because they are undocumented. We must ensure that all people in our country have access to reproductive health care,” Omar wrote in a Monday night tweet.

Omar has taken hard-line positions on abortion before. Following President Donald Trump’s impassioned plea to end late-term abortion in his February State of the Union address, Omar tweeted: “If Trump thinks pivoting from his failed vanity wall to policing women’s bodies and choices is going to help his 2020 chances he has another thing [sic] coming.”

Hypocrisy of the Media’s Immigration Crisis Coverage

When it comes to examining the immigration crisis dominating the news cycle, Americans must question why there was no public outrage — or widespread media coverage — when the Obama administration deported 3 million illegal immigrants.

It’s not long ago that the former Democratic administration conducted ICE raids, instilling fear in the immigrant community, yet few, if anyone, accused President Obama or Vice President Joe Biden of being inhumane. Nor did Democrats compare U.S. detention centers that are temporarily housing illegal immigrants while their claims are being processed to Nazi concentration camps.

Liberal lawmakers and their supporters didn’t accuse Obama or members of his administration of being racists for upholding the rule of law. Nor did the left call fellow Democrats Nazis, despite hundreds of border deaths on Obama’s watch. “During Obama’s two-term presidency, from 2008 to 2016, border deaths ranged from 251 to 471 each year,” reports American Military News.

Add to it the mishandling of many unaccompanied children while in U.S. custody during the Obama/Biden years and images of migrants sleeping on the floor in controversial detention centers Democrats are now calling “cages.”
But that’s not all. In 2016, the Washington Post reported, “The Obama administration failed to protect thousands of Central American children who have flooded across the U.S. border since 2011, leaving them vulnerable to traffickers and to abuses at the hands of government-approved caretakers, a Senate investigation has found.”
Now contrast that to what’s happening today.

If you turn on any TV channel or examine mainstream media’s coverage of the immigration crisis at the southern border, you’ll see the left is up in arms over the Trump administration’s handling of the crisis, including its deportation raids that are targeting approximately 2,000 families whose immigration cases have been fully adjudicated. Instead of applauding the president for upholding the rule of law — laws that Democratic members of Congress had a hand in crafting — the left is trying to paint the president and his administration as inhumane “white nationalists” who heartlessly break up poor immigrant families.

Never mind that the Obama administration did the same thing — as did prior administrations, going back decades.
What clear-eyed voters see is politics at play, a dual system chock-full of faux “outrage” when it comes to the plight of migrants — depending on which party is in power.

When Republicans uphold the rule of law, they’re quickly painted by the left as “racists,” “fascists” or “Nazis,” but when a Democratic administration deports millions of illegals from similar places of origin, it gets a pass.

Add to it that Barack Obama, Joe Biden and other members of the administration weren’t personally attacked like the Trump administration is every single day, nor were their reputations maligned. To the contrary, they were by and large commended for respecting the rule of law when it came to immigration.

Here’s the deal. In 2015, immigrant advocacy groups including the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona filed a class action lawsuit against the Obama administration for the appalling treatment of illegal immigrants being housed in Customs and Border Protection detention centers. The suit alleges that migrants in U.S. custody were “deprived of beds, bedding, and sleep; denied adequate food, water, medicine and medical care, and basic sanitation and hygiene items such as soap, sufficient toilet paper, sanitary napkins, diapers, and showers.”

If you’re just learning about this years later, there’s a reason: Virtually zero media covered it at the time.
That tells you all you need to know.

Alyssa Milano Compares VP Pence to Nazi Leader, Gets Scorched

Left wing activist actress Alyssa Milano has moved on from virtue-signaling in favor of late-term abortion to comparing Vice President Mike Pence to Heinrich Himmler, the main architect of the Holocaust. Through Twitter she offered up side-by-side images of Himmler at a POW camp during WWII and Mike Pence at an immigration detention center to press her propaganda. Conservatives were quick to blast her for her silence during the Obama days, while others offered up a similar comparison between Planned Parenthood’s president and Nazi eugenicist Josef Mengele.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Fresh off of the apparent failure of her pro-abortion sex strike, former child actress Alyssa Milano has sought to remain relevant in today’s political climate by tweeting an image comparing Vice President Mike Pence to Heinrich Himmler, a powerful leader in the German Nazi Party and a main architect of the Holocaust. The image features side by side images of Himmler at POW camp during World War II, and Mike Pence at an immigrant detention center in Texas during his visit last week.

While her tweet has been “liked” over 10,000 times, and “retweeted” over 4,500 times, the response Milano received for her absurd tweet appears to be mostly negative.

Hispanic Pastor Calls out AOC over Detention Facility Disinformation

Reverend Samuel Rodriquez, a Hispanic pastor and veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., told Fox News in an interview that he’s “shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border” being perpetuated by U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and that his experience at that same El Paso County, Texas, facility was “drastically different.” “We found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions, and no lack of basic necessities,” Rodriguez explained. He said he asked Border Patrol agents if they staged the facility in response to the negative press. “They unequivocally denied it-we were witnessing the identical conditions the attorneys saw when they toured the facility days earlier.” Read more…

Here’s more from Breitbart…

A Hispanic pastor said his tour of the same facility visited by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Costa (AOC) left him with a “drastically different” perception of the facility. The paster said her comments about the Border Patrol detention facility in El Paso County, Texas, left him “full of indignation.”

“Even as a veteran of immigration advocacy in the U.S., I was shocked at the misinformation of the crisis at the border,” Rev. Samuel Rodriguez told Fox News. The pastor serves as president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and senior pastor of the New Seasons Christian Worship Center in Sacramento, California.

Rodriquez places the blame for the broken immigration system that led to the current border crisis on consecutive White House administrations and especially on Congress — both Republicans and Democrats — who he implored to “address the system they created.”

ISIS Suspects Hiding Among “Asylum Seekers”

Just like the Islamic State exploited the Syrian refugee crisis to gain access to Europe, three ISIS-linked terror suspects are now hiding among the Central American asylum seekers in their effort to gain access to America’s heartland. “The three men are believed to have entered through Panama in May, crossed through Costa Rica on June 9, and could be headed to Mexico, a leaked internal security memo revealed,” reported Breitbart News. “The [official Mexican government] documents make reference to BITMAP, the U.S. Homeland Security Investigations’ Biometric Identification Transnational Migration Alert Program, a collection of databases on ‘special interest aliens, violent criminals, fugitives and confirmed or suspected terrorists encountered within illicit pathways.'” Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Mexican law enforcement officials have confirmed that the United States has warned them that there are three ISIS-linked terror suspects traveling through Central America who are potentially trying to reach the U.S. border by traveling through Mexico.

Breitbart border experts Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz exclusively reported on Monday that “Mexican Federal Police are on alert, preparing to encounter or arrest Ahamed Ghanim Mohamed Al Juburi from Iraq, and Ibrahim Mohamed and Mohamed Eissa from Egypt.”

Darby and Ortiz obtained official documents from the Mexican government showing that it was warned by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security late last week about the three suspects.

Trump Announces Deportation of Millions of Illegal Aliens

President Trump tweeted Tuesday that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will be initiating removal proceedings for millions of illegal immigrants in the United States, noting, “They will be removed as fast as they come in.” The President also added that “Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement” and that “The only ones who won’t do anything are the Democrats in Congress.” The move comes hours after the State Department announced that the U.S. will be cutting foreign aid to the three Central American countries whose citizens are invading our southern border en masse.

President Donald Trump revealed late Tuesday U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will initiate removal proceedings for millions of foreign nationals deemed illegally present in the United States.

“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” the president announced late Tuesday. “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”

“Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people long before they get to our Southern Border,” Trump continued. “Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement.

Islamic State Fighter Confirms U.S. Open Borders Plot

The International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE) published a report last week detailing that America’s open southern border is being considered a port of entry into our homeland by Islamist terrorists. According to the report, an Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist captured in Syria claimed that ISIS was planning to sneak terrorists through our open borders to target financial targets and “cripple the U.S. economy.” The terrorist in question, Abu Henricki, had dual Canadian and Trinidadian citizenship and said that he was asked to join a unit of other Trinidadians sent into Mexico by way of Puerto Rico to meet up with an ISIS terrorist already in the United States.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

An Islamic State (ISIS) fighter allegedly captured in Syria claimed that ISIS had concocted a plan to sneak terrorists across the U.S.-Mexico border to attack financial targets and “cripple the U.S. economy,” according to a report published this week by the International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE).

The report is based on testimony from Abu Henricki, an ISIS terrorist with dual citizenship in Canada and Trinidad. Henricki said he traveled to the Islamic State’s “caliphate” in Syria to serve as a front-line fighter for the terror state, but his poor health kept him on the sidelines.

In late 2016, he claims the Islamic State’s intelligence service asked him to become part of a special unit of Trinidadians that would be sent into Mexico via Puerto Rico, cross the U.S. border, and carry out attacks on financial targets like Wall Street.
