No sacrifice to meaningless, gestural politics is too great for the open borders demagogues of this nation. Much like their vaunted leader, they know that emotion-not reason-is their key to victory. Phil Ochs had these folks pegged.
The manifold problems presented by refugee resettlement within the United States have been explored on this website at some length in the past. In addition to the status being accorded to con artists and petty criminals, there is an even more dangerous element posed by the slipshod process by which these individuals are admitted to America. Namely, the threat of Islamic terror transposed from abroad.
The murder of Army Spc. Gennaro Pellegrini Jr. by Al Qaeda-aligned terrorists was one of many tragic deaths which occurred in Iraq while American troops were stationed in that country. However, what transformed this loss into an outrageous example of government incompetence was the decision to grant residency to the men responsible for his death.
Debbie Schussel has the entire story, which I encourage you all to read. It’s an illustration of the profoundly misguided nature of recent attempts at immigration reform, and why entrusting this administration with enacting any widespread legalization program is the height of folly.
One of the depressingly familiar truths about immigration debates in this country-as well as most other liberal democracies in the West-is the inability to gain any useful information from what should ostensibly be a valuable resource, i.e. the mainstream news media. Instead of critically examining the salient facts about the massive sociological experiment we embarked upon five decades ago, we’re treated to an intellectually sterile monologue which is worse than useless; it is actually misleading and destructive.
That is why we should rejoice whenever someone who actually has a thorough, well-grounded understanding of this subject contributes to the public discourse. Such is the case with Harvard professor George Borjas, the nation’s foremost economist when it comes to examining the economic and fiscal impact of large scale migration to the United States. Even though Immigration Economics won’t be published until next summer, it’s worth considering the potentially crippling economic consequences of the legislative amnesty the open borders caucus is currently trying to force through Congress.
We are already experiencing the fallout from another hastily enacted, gargantuan bill which was rushed into law by a partisan majority-heedless of the consequences-let’s not rush headlong into yet another economically ruinous piece of legislation simply because it carries the endorsement of the chattering classes.
Lest you think the grand diplomatic bargain reached in Geneva has deterred the Obama administration from the pursuit of its chief domestic priority, here is some unpleasant news, courtesy of National Public Radio. Whether the President will enact a wholesale amnesty through yet another unconstitutional presidential edict, or manage to persuade the already receptive open borders cheerleaders within the GOP leadership, the fix would appear to be in.
It looks like it’s time to reach out to your congressman once again, dear readers.
Senator Jeff Sessions identifies the true motivation behind immigration reform, which isn’t as noble as Zuckerberg Inc. would like the American public to believe. Just as virtually no member of the mainstream media is crutinizing the angelic-if not wholly accurate-depiction of potential beneficiaries of any future congressional amnesty, so too are they ignoring the incentives Facebook, LinkedIn, among others, have in seeing this “reform” enacted.
In other words, same old same old.
Longstanding immigration reform activist and career Customs official Michael Cutler, whose tireless efforts to defend American citizens our readers well acquainted with, will be appearing later this morning on a radio program which will examine the grave threats posed by our compromised political asylum system. You’ll find all the information necessary to listen to him below the fold.
It should come as no surprise that the lavishly-funded open borders lobby is renewing its push to enact wholesale amnesty. Minting millions of new Democratic voters is the President’s only hope of salvaging a second term whose chief accomplishment to date has been the complete unraveling of the President’s chief first term accomplishment.

The open borders lobby hasn’t had much luck mustering impressive mobs in their national campaign to pressure lawmakers into rubber-stamping amnesty through Congress. However, that hasn’t prevented it from trying to milk publicity from public spectacles attended mostly by those who aren’t even legally entitled to vote. We’ll be seeing another anti-enforcement rally this weekend, but the good news is that New York Ice will be there to challenge the faulty premises and tortured logic used by the treason lobby.

The open borders lobby never rests, and so it comes as no surprise that its cadres in the City have an event planned for next month. The NYIC-along with the usual suspects-has prepared a host to demonstrate the contempt with which the treason lobby views American citizenship. Those of you willing to stand up for the dignity of your fellow Americans can find information on how to rebuke them below the fold. Read More »

Signatures are on a letter to Michael Grimm telling him that he must stick to the strong anti-amnesty position he campaigned on when he was first elected to Congress in 2010. Read More »
