Sanctuary Cities – Intent Follows the Illegal Immigrant

As part of his immigration plan, President Trump pledged during his campaign to block federal funding to sanctuary cities within the first one hundred days of his administration. “Block funding for sanctuary cities. We block the funding. No more funding. Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars,” Trump said last August. States could lose funding as well as counties and cities. Some could face huge penalties for noncompliance. New York City stands to lose $1.8 billion in federal dollars.

I sincerely hope he keeps this pledge.

Sanctuary cities, if you don’t know, have laws or unwritten policies in place to limit how much local law enforcement cooperate with federal immigration officials when dealing with illegal immigrants. Illegals who have been arrested for crimes in sanctuary cities are typically allowed to serve their city jail time and are then released instead of being turned over to the feds for deportation. Some cities will turn over illegals who commit serious felonies but shield all others.

The liberals harboring these criminals are doing so at the expense […] → Keep reading

Trump Is Right and He’s Done Republicans A Huge Service

Donald Trump’s comments about illegal immigrants seem to be dominating the news lately. The media have made it the story and have taken great glee in reporting about the backlash The Donald is receiving for what he said. Macy’s, Serta mattresses, Univision, NASCAR and NBC have all either cut ties with Trump or announced they will be terminating agreements with him. My first thought after reading all that was to wonder how in the world Donald Trump has his own line of Serta mattresses. Who would want that? But I digress. The Donald doesn’t seem to care about all the damage, saying on Fox & Friends, “I think it’s bad for my brand. I don’t care. You know maybe I’m leading in the polls, but this is certainly not good. I lose customers. I lose people.”

But what exactly was it he said that has made him the target of all this backlash? I’ve seen it misquoted on a few sites, so here it is:

“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its […] → Keep reading

Islam: The Evil Invading America

It has been near impossible lately to read any news without seeing Islam mentioned. With so many Islamic terrorist groups spreading their evil, murdering Christians and other non-Islamists in the most horrific ways, more attention has been given to Islam and to the evil for which it stands. You might already be asking yourself, did he just say Islam is evil? Yes, I did.

Certainly there are many nonviolent Muslims in the world, and they may even be in the majority, but the fact remains that the core tenets of Islam are violence, death, murder, rape and pedophilia. That the majority (just guessing) of Muslims do not take part in this evil does not change the fact that Islam is pure evil. U.S. politicians on both sides of the aisle frequently dismiss the evil of Islam, stating that Islam is a religion of peace and that the ‘extremists’ have hijacked it in order to conduct their terrorist activities. They’ve got it exactly backwards. The Muslims who are cutting the heads off of captors, raping women and children, committing mass murders […] → Keep reading

Democrats, Burger King, Illegal Immigration and Hypocrisy

Yesterday, Burger King agreed to buy the Canadian restaurant chain Tim Hortons for about $11.4 billion, creating one of the largest fast-food corporations in the world. As part of the deal, Burger King will move its home up north to Canada where corporate taxes are significantly lower than the United States. Under current U.S. law, a company merging with a foreign company can move its headquarters abroad and take advantage of lower taxes, as long as at least twenty percent of its shares are held by the foreign company’s shareholders once the merger is complete. Management and operations of the merging company are still allowed to remain in the U.S. after the merger.

The news has angered some Democrats, who complain that corporate inversions should not be allowed. Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) has proposed that Congress pass inversion legislation to prevent corporations from moving abroad. He said, “The reported deal with Burger King, an American company, highlights the need for Congress to act with urgency to keep companies in the U.S. rather than moving abroad. We need to seriously examine […] → Keep reading

In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants?

An unsigned opinion piece in The Oklahoman favors allowing illegal immigrants to attend college in Oklahoma at in-state tuition rates. The editorial refers to them five times as ‘undocumented’ but that is just a euphemism for illegal, which is what they are. The editorial takes the position that children “whose parents brought them into the United States illegally shouldn’t bear the legal or financial burden of that decision.”

Also from the editorial: “Fewer than 500 undocumented students attend Oklahoma’s public colleges and universities. Not surprisingly, the school with the highest number of these students is Oklahoma City Community College, with 163. OCCC is in southwest Oklahoma City where many Hispanic families have settled in recent years. Tuition is low at OCCC and other two-year schools compared with four-year schools. Tulsa Community College, also a two-year school, reported the second-highest number of undocumented students, with 94.”

If they have exact numbers on all this then it is obviously known who these illegals are. Why are they allowed to remain here?

“Clearly, undocumented students aren’t overrunning the state’s colleges and universities.“
