I was told yesterday there was some strike by immigrants or businesses against President Trump’s executive order. It seems the left is resorting to the old communist playbook of “workers strikes” — except they’re using identity politics as a guiding principle. The hypocrisy continues to give me such a laugh, as Obama deported and therefore broke up far more families. And actually the Obama administration misled the American people by counting anyone turned around at the border as a “deportation.”
And ya know, who on the left complained when in his final week in office, Obama changed the Cuban immigration policy? In essence, what Obama did was sentence freedom-loving Cubans to life under a brutal communist regime. Well, I suppose you do get to know people by the tactics and friends they embrace…
So, while we have all of this hoopla about the poor refugees and wrongly-condemned illegal immigrants, there a’s story that reminds us out here what’s really happening.
As reported by Todd Starnes, “By all accounts David Kriehn, of Noblesville, Indiana was a good person. He was a gentle and caring man.
“A good person,” Harry Straut told television station WTHR. “They guy you liked to hang out with as well as work with.” Mr. Kriehn was a former missionary – who managed Famous Dave’s, a popular barbecue joint near Indianapolis.
“Dave was an inspirational leader,” Straut told the television station.” He was the kind of leader who put others ahead of himself – a great American.
On Feb. 12th Mr. Kriehn was driving home from work in the wee hours of the morning when he was hit from behind on Interstate 465. The force of the impact flipped over his car – he was ejected. Mr. Kriehn – a father and grandfather – died at a nearby hospital.
Police identified the motorist who struck Mr. Kriehn as Elizabeth Vargas Hernandez – a Mexican national. They say she did not have a driver’s license. They also say she was drunk. And the Marion County Sheriff’s Office tells me Immigration Customs Enforcement has placed a hold on Ms. Hernandez.
She is no stranger to law enforcement. In 2015, she was accused of driving without a license – but she was not arrested. That’s according to the reporting of IndyChannel.com. And WTHR reports a state police investigation “uncovered evidence that the woman entered the country illegally and has never held a driver’s license.”
How many more American citizens must die before our elected leaders take action? Liberals want to protect people like the woman who killed Mr. Kriehn. They want to provide sanctuary to those who live among us illegally – those who would do us harm.”
Will the progressive socialist left come out, protest and speak up on behalf of Mr. David Kriehn? Will the mainstream liberal progressive media run countless stories ad nauseam about this? Will George Soros pay folks to march, protest and decry the injustice down here? Of course these are rhetorical questions, but there is one clear point: the progressive socialist left cares little about Americans who are being killed by illegal immigrants.
Heck, we saw at the beginning of this week the unrighteous indignation of the left over ICE raids that targeted criminal illegal immigrants, a large number with felony offenses. Have we forgotten the fate of young Kate Steinle so fast? Imagine the disrespect, the disappointment of the Steinle family when they have to hear the elected officials of San Francisco tout they’re going to shield all illegal immigrants, criminal or otherwise, in sanctuary.
How demeaning it must be for the Steinle family, and all those who’ve lost their loved ones to illegal immigrants in California, to hear Governor Jerry Brown vehemently take the stance of making the state of California a sanctuary state? As Todd Starnes asks, “how many more American citizens must die before our elected” — I refuse to call them leaders —” officials take action?” The message being sent from the leftist socialists who own the Democrat Party is that they don’t care about American citizens.
That is the message Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel sends to the black community in Southside Chicago. He shows more angst and a protective nature for criminal illegal immigrants than for a community that has descended into a combat zone.
Where is the concern for the two black girls who were shot in the head this past weekend in Chicago? Yet, if they were children of those here illegally, we would be told of the family being broken up, or that they have dreams. Mayor Emanuel, what about the dreams of those two little black girls fighting for their lives?
I’m tired of hearing about building walls from those entertainment elites who live behind very high walls with paid armed security. I don’t need a lecture about love from a pope when the Vatican is surrounded by a wall. What leftist is willing to look into the eyes of the family of Mr. Kriehn and tell them that Elizabeth Vargas Hernandez has a right to be in this country?
Don’t tell me, Governor Brown, that Ms. Hernandez was deserving of a drivers license or that she has some constitutional protections. That dog don’t hunt.
And here in Texas an illegal immigrant was just sentenced to eight years in jail for being here illegally and voting in elections. Per Fox News, ”A Mexican citizen living in Texas was sentenced this week to eight years in prison for voting illegally in elections in 2012 and 2014.
Rosa Maria Ortega, 37, was found guilty Wednesday on two counts of illegal voting after she falsely claimed to be a United States citizen and voted at least five times between 2012 and 2014. A jury sentenced her Thursday to eight years in prison and a $5,000 fine. The Dallas News reported Ortega voted in the November 2012 election and May 2014 GOP primary runoff in Dallas County. According to Fox 4 News, Ortega’s identity came into question after she tried to register to vote twice in Tarrant County. Both applications were denied. She had voted in five elections in Dallas before her registration was canceled in April 2015.”
And we shared with you just last week that the Dallas County Commission voted 4-1, (only one Republican on the commission) for a resolution basically establishing the county as a sanctuary for illegal immigrants. The resolution is non-binding, but the intent, purpose and message are clear.
Let me make myself very clear, this is today’s Democrat Party, and I will challenge anyone: is this what you believe in and with which you desire association?
This is a Party that no longer embraces the belief in American sovereignty, all to the detriment of American citizens. This is a Party that has embarked upon a suicidal ambition to undermine this Constitutional Republic and fundamentally transform it into something antithetical to our true principles and values. This is a Party embracing a scorched earth policy that we’re witnessing in a completely lawless and violent nature, all because they lost an election.
This is a Party that looks at the families of Kate Steinle and David Kriehn and spits in their eyes. This is a Party that believes Elizabeth Vargas Hernandez and Rosa Maria Ortega are victims. This is a Party that aspires to place America into a death spiral and will find blame anyone, save for themselves. This is a Party who, along with a corrupt and complicit media, does not tell us the real stories…that of David Kriehn, Kate Steinle, and so many other Americans who’ve been the real victims of the scourge of illegal immigration. The question is simple: how we will respond to their despicable actions and behavior? To their violence, protests, and intimidation?
I tell you how: we meet them on the ideological battlefield, and defeat them.
Requiem en pace David Kriehn, this nation failed you, and may God bless your family.
Again, how many more Americans have to die at the hands of illegal immigrants before we take this seriously?
