United States begins enforcing existing immigration laws, number of asylum seekers/illegal immigrants from South America doubles on Canada’s southern border.
Canada will continue to accept asylum seekers crossing illegally from the United States but will ensure security measures are taken to keep Canadians safe, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Tuesday.
The number of would-be refugees crossing into Canada at isolated and unguarded border crossings has increased in recent weeks amid fears that U.S. President Donald Trump will crack down on illegal immigrants, and photos of smiling Canadian police greeting the migrants have gone viral.
“As a Mexican-American who often identifies more with the “American” side of the hyphen, sanctimonious attempts by Mexican officials to lecture Americans about how to stop illegal immigration over our southern border always grate on me.”
“Illegal immigration into the United States is a complicated and explosive topic that should be off-limits to any Mexican leader, past or current.
Why? Because if the presidents of Mexico had the integrity and courage to tackle corruption, modernize government, create jobs, improve their economy, and reform their legal system, there is a good chance that fewer of their countrymen would leave their families, abandon their communities and risk their lives to cross the border into the United States. Once here, they are at the tender mercies of politicians — in both parties — who too often cynically use the immigration issue for their own benefit.
Fox should stop trying to compete with Trump by fighting tweets with tweets, and instead turn his attention to making Mexico great again. He could even hand out baseball caps.”
“In California, we all know people who have bailed out for places where the taxes are low, regulations are light and the cost of living reasonable. But the evidence here is not just anecdotal.
In a recent piece in the Washington Times, economist Stephen Moore presents an amazing statistic: “Of the 10 blue states that Hillary Clinton won by the largest percentage margins — California, Massachusetts, Vermont, Hawaii, Maryland, New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, New Jersey and Connecticut — every single one of them lost domestic migration (excluding immigration) over the last 10 years (2004-14).”
But here’s the kicker: The exact opposite is true in those states that supported Donald Trump by the largest margin. Those states – including Wyoming, West Virginia, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Dakota, and Idaho — saw net domestic in-migration.
So what are the characteristics of those Hillary-supporting states that are bleeding productive citizens? Here, Moore doesn’t mince words: “They are the loser states. They are all progressive. High tax rates. High welfare benefits. Heavy regulation. Environmental extremism. Super minimum wages. Most outlaw energy drilling. The whole left-wing playbook is on display in the Hillary states. And people are leaving in droves.” here… via Ace
The number of sanctuary cities who will refuse to comply with federal law has grown to 18.
Alright then lets play along. All of the states who don’t want sanctuary cities can post notification in newspapers and other media outlets that law enforcement will continue to enforce federal law and deport illegals that get arrested, the only way to avoid this is to move to a sanctuary city before an arrest can be made.
If the liberal governors and mayors of these cities can hold office, then the people who elected them can live with the consequences.
Ignore them snubbing their noses at federal law, let them reap what the sow.
You don’t get to be all unicorns and glitter in this world, it’s a nasty, mean, dog eat dog world out there. Wanting the US to be a sovereign nation of laws should be embraced not denigrated as Obama just did. His description about nationalism being dangerous explains his eight years in office.
When you see anti-Trump protesters waving flags from other countries and burning American flags you understand these people want the benefits of American life without the pesky patriotism, which is what Obama is saying.
Obama: We have to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism or ethnic identity or tribalism that is built around an us and a them. And I will never apologize for saying that the future of humanity and the future of the world is going to be defined by what we have in common as opposed to those things that separate us and ultimately lead us into conflict.
Illegal aliens = Drugs, crime, and a burden on community services, all on the taxpayers dime and well being Refugees = Drugs, crime, potential terrorism, and a burden on community services, all on the taxpayers dime and well being How can thinking these things are not good = “Dangerous”?
Time to explain to these cities what federal funding means. Obama did it:
Last month, Obama officials sent a letter to Florida’s Medicaid agency, warning that it may not reauthorize $2.2 billion in unrelated Medicaid funding unless the state agrees to expand Obamacare. These actions make the administration’s priorities crystal clear: expanding welfare for able-bodied adults is more important than funding for hospitals treating poor children, seniors and individuals with disabilities.
What Obama did was blackmail, withholding funds from sanctuary cities is following the law…..period. These lefty politicians want a fight, Trump needs to take the gloves off. h/t Weasel Zippers for the image
