As we draw closer to the federal government funding deadline this Friday, there’s one prevailing question: “what is the priority of the Democrats?” There’s a looming “government shutdown” — actually the government doesn’t shut down, they just identify non-essential personnel and tell them to stay home. And then, when the “shutdown” is over, those employees return back to work, and get back pay for the days they were at home.
The Democrats prefer rewarding illegal immigrant children they’ve labelled as “dreamers” over ensuring our military is funded. Once again, their insidious ideological agenda supersedes our security — national and otherwise. And we’ve got the numbers to prove it.
As reported at Townhall.com, “A new report released by the Department of Homeland Security Tuesday shows 75-percent of convicted terrorists in America were born abroad.
From the data: According to a list maintained by DOJ’s National Security Division, at least 549 individuals were convicted of international terrorism-related charges in U.S. federal courts between September 11, 2001, and December 31, 2016. An analysis conducted by DHS determined that approximately 73 percent (402 of these 549 individuals) were foreign-born. Breaking down the 549 individuals by citizenship status at the time of their respective convictions reveals that:
-254 were not U.S. citizens;
-148 were foreign-born, naturalized and received U.S. citizenship and,
-147 were U.S. citizens by birth.
Many convicted terrorists came to the U.S. through chain migration, a program the Trump administration and Republicans are trying to end. An example: Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan, a national of Sudan, was admitted to the United States in 2012 as a family member of a lawful permanent resident from Sudan. In 2016, he pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to ISIS, and in 2017 was subsequently sentenced to 11 years in prison.”
What has to be disturbing is that when confronted with a policy solution that provides a legal status path, not citizenship, for DACA classified individuals, but an elimination of chain migration and diversity or lottery visas, the Democrats said no. When offered a solution for DACA individuals but an end to sanctuary cities and states, the Democrats said no.
The Democrats want DACA tied to our funding measure that must be passed and signed by Friday midnight, and by the way, I don’t like the further continuing resolution action.
The Democrats want DACA, as it is, to be law, and remember it’s currently an unconstitutional executive order enacted by Barack Obama. But what’s amazing is that the Democrats want DACA and nothing else, include securing our southern border, and no end to these visa programs that have been detrimental to our country’s security. Therefore, the deduction has to be that Democrats prefer their ideological agenda over your safety. Your dreams, and the dreams of your children, to live in a secure America mean nothing to the Democrats.
But it’s not just about our national and border security, the Democrats truly do support the real “war on women.”
“Further, the report details an alarming number of honor killings inside Muslim-American communities. Honor killings are carried out against girls for being “too westernized.” “Although the federal government lacks independent data regarding incidents of honor killings, a study commissioned and provided to the DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics in 2014 estimated that an average of 23-27 honor killings occur every year in the United States,” the report states. “Based on a representative sample studied through open media sources, 91 percent of the victims in honor killings in North America were murdered for being ‘too westernized.’ The study further estimated that approximately 1,500 forced marriages occur every year in the United States.”
I guess this doesn’t fall into the #MeToo category, and there will be no black dresses to protest this. According to Canada’s Prime Miniser Justin Trudeau, bringing something like this to the forefront is an example of “islamophobia.” And this is what the progressive socialists of the Democrat Party call “diversity.” Of course, we know about the increase of sexual assaults in Europe due to the left’s demented definition of diversity. And this is a visa program the Democrats refuse to end.
The GOP needs to stress a simple premise: it’s a privilege, not a right, to be in America. And we, Americans, have the right to determine who enters our country. This belief is anathema to that of the liberal progressive left.
Ask yourself, do you think this DoJ report will be discussed on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, or PBS? Heck, if it were a President Hillary Clinton, do you think this DoJ report would have been made public? Doggone certainly would not have under an Attorney General Eric Holder of Loretta Lynch, true leftist ideologues.
Just posing this question, in the era of transnational criminal organizations (drug cartels) and Islamic jihadism, what idiot doesn’t want to secure their borders? And what chucklehead would want to bring people into their country who possess a belief system that is antithetical to the basic concept of individual rights and freedoms…respect of women?
The answer? Only Democrats…
