According to Politico, dated September 28, 2013, an Obama White House immigration adviser opined that October would see a day of "dignity and respect.” This move was meant to establish that illegal aliens have all the rights of American citizens.
American citizens who oppose open borders legislation and citizenship rights for illegal aliens are shamed as racists.
Five years later, illegal aliens are seriously demanding all the rights of citizenship.
The day-to-day events encouraging illegal aliens are meant to change the country. Whether it is tiny Takoma Park, Maryland, or San Francisco, California, Leftist politicians are permitting foreign nationals, including Russians, to vote in elections and obtain entitlements at the taxpayers’ expense.
Russians and other foreign nationals need not bother with “hacking” elections. They can just vote in Leftist-controlled American jurisdictions. No outrage from Progressive Democrats about illegal alien Russians voting.
Today, local elections, tomorrow, federal elections.
The problem is not legal immigration. Support for illegal immigration, open borders, “no person is illegal,” and “non-citizen voting rights” dominates the national news media and Leftist cable networks.
Meanwhile, a storm surge of foreign nationals is crossing U.S. borders illegally or overstaying their visas to disappear into the population.
Thousands of illegal border-crossers are speciously claiming asylum or refugee status aided and abetted by Leftist advocates.
Illegal alien children are the cause celebre of the radical Left and Democrats. A very small number of the illegal alien children are under 5 years of age. An estimated 85 percent are over 13 years of age. A Border Patrol estimate in 2017 is that 25-30 percent of the older children are criminal gang members.
The news media has repeated ad nauseum that “infants” are being ripped from the arms of their mothers. Not true!
Progressive/liberal hysteria about abuses by ICE agents (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) is not true. Evidence demonstrates that the detained children are living better than ever before in their lives.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) background checks are sketchy at best, due to a purposeful effort by foreign countries to confuse DHS personnel. Both “parent(s)” and child(ren) give partial or misspelled names, incorrect or misspelled town names and addresses, and “parents” and child have no valid forms of identification.
Many of the “parents” of the illegal alien children: 1) are not the real parents, 2) have criminal records, 3) are seeking immediate deportation to their homelands, and 4) are sexual facilitators.
Those who are not real parents use the child as a ploy for easy entry into the United States. The “parents” know Democrats will support them. If the child has real parents, the faux “parents” pay the real parents to use the child.
An estimated 20 percent of “parents” have criminal records or other disqualifying histories.
Several hundred “parents” opted for immediate voluntary deportation. The children will be settled in the United States. In the near future, the children will move to have the "parents" come legally into the United States.
Border Patrol agents say not only sexual predators, but terrorists use the children to facilitate their entry into the United States. The real parents sell their children to these criminals.
The news media, whether American or foreign, make vague and unverified statements of the plight supposedly suffered by the incoming illegal aliens and especially the innocent children. Even when the members of the press see a “child” with a gang tattoo it is ignored. The illegal alien advocates also ignore this fact.
On May 17, 2018, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took exception to President Trump calling the sadistic criminal gang MS-13 “animals.” Pelosi said MS-13 are immigrants.
Reported on July 29, 2018, "22 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Identity Fraud Scheme, Stealing Thousands in Taxpayer Money," in Townhall online, people used stolen or bought Puerto Rican identities to obtained government entitlement and welfare benefits.
Today, local elections, tomorrow federal elections.
