Immigration / Illegal Status
Is there something the United States government is not telling the American people? In recent weeks there has been a surge of illegal immigrants especially from Central and South America coming across the Mexico-United States border.
The law states:
Regulation of immigration. Informed by several constitutional provisions and ultimately resting on the inherent right of every sovereign nation to control its borders, the authority to regulate the entry of aliens and the conditions of their stay is a plenary power of the Federal Government. Congress has exercised this authority primarily through the Immigration & Nationality Act of 1952 (INA), as amended (8 U.S.C. §§ 1101 et seq.). Under the INA, an alien, including an unaccompanied minor, who arrives without proper migration documents has no right to remain and, indeed, is regarded as having no constitutional rights within the immigration process.
Articles such as these ones are documenting the invasion:
- Katrina of Illegal Immigrants Flooding into Border States Daily
- Obama, Mexico Facilitate Illegal Immigration: 300 More Illegal Migrant Kids Flood U.S. Border
- After Leaked Photos Expose Unaccompanied Child Crisis, Border Patrol Agents Threatened With Firings
Not to mention the articles, interviews, and documentation being reported by Inforwars about illegal immigration, church and border patrol assistance to these immigrants as well as exhibiting what happens to surrounding areas when the Federal Government does not enforce current and necessary immigration laws.
In the article, Central American Newspapers Encouraging Illegal Immigration, children are being sent northward because of the policies of the United States government:
“During their stay, in addition to accommodations and food, children receive English classes, play sports and participate in targeted programs while immigration authorities contact their families,” La Prensa of Honduras wrote, Newsmax reported Wednesday.
Diario El Mundo in El Salvador, meanwhile, quoted Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson as praising the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“Almost all agree that a child who crossed the border illegally with their parents, or in search of a father or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws and should be treated differently than adult violators of the law,” he told the paper.
President Obama enacted the policy in 2012, granting temporary legal status to many young illegal immigrants and ending the threat of their deportation for two years or longer.
How is Arizona being impacted by loose and impractical immigration policies?
- Arizona orders 2,000 mattresses in rush to provide for swarm of unaccompanied migrant children housed in crumbling air base
- Arizona sends supplies to illegal immigrant children 'dumped' in warehouse
- 300 more immigrant children shipped to Arizona
- Scores of undocumented migrants dropped off in Arizona
- HUMPHRIES: Exclusive interview with Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio
America is not stable. Our economy is in a depression. Our monetary system is rigged. Americans cannot afford new mattresses for themselves, yet other countries feel that the American taxpayer owes them a better life.
People on Visas in America have to be self-sufficient and are unable to collect any type of public assistance. However, if you cross the border illegally, it appears that necessary rules and laws do not apply. Why does the United States Federal Government believe we have the ability to take care of all these abandoned children?
We have laws. We have immigration laws. In the past few decades, these laws have been ignored, bashed, and unused so someone can "reform" our unbroken laws for their benefit. The question is: Who is benefiting?
The American people cannot find jobs, house all their population, feed everyone that already lives here, or correct the financial system against middle class wealth creation.
So who is benefiting from the influx of illegal immigrants that have continued across our borders for the past few decades?
It is not the United States' job to house, cloth, and assist the entire world. There are hundreds of other countries who can be of service instead of the poverty stricken middle class.
In the case of Elian Gonzales: "Asylum under the INA. Under § 208 of the INA, “[a]ny alien who is physically present in the United States . . . may apply for asylum.” At core issue in the Gonzalez case was whether the phrase “any alien” was sufficiently unclear to leave the Attorney General discretion to refuse to accept an asylum application by or on behalf of a minor without parental consent."
As our Federal Government creates this "Humanitarian Crisis" through Free Trade agreements and the North American Union that only benefit wealthy corporations as well as urges the American taxpayers to have "compassion."
Where is the compassion and jobs for the American people?
The only true Humanitarian Crisis is the crisis of poor leadership, abandoning our Constitution and laws, and emotionally blackmailing Americans to usher in a government "Solution" that neither benefits Americans nor the legal immigrants who are already here.
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Maybe the end of that poem should read:
For we have these masses unfree, suspectAlready sleeping in our streets.What will we do with more thanWe have to feed, clothe, and houseWhen we cannot educate themWith one, two, and three?What are we to do, Mr. President?Shall we give up more of our Libertiesfor wars and terrorists of your own making?We have a golden door, but no one is allowed to enter.Unless your name is Bush, Cheney, Clinton, yours?Americans are kind and generousand willing to help those in need.For now, Americans need you to bethe President of Change they voted for.Not the same that asks of them to repentfor injustices you and your elites have sent.
Enough, Mr. President.
Abide by our laws and enforce our laws and border security.
