Liberal Democrat Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is proposing America pay foreign countries to stop their illegal immigration.
Since the recent death of a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl while in Border Patrol custody, liberals have sought to blamed Trump’s immigration policy and the Border Patrol. But the responsibility of the tragedy must be placed on the father's decision to bring his child on a long dangerous trip and illegally cross the border.
The girl and her father, identified by a Guatemalan official as Jackeline Caal, had crossed into the U.S. with a large group of illegal aliens in a remote stretch of New Mexico. She was flown by helicopter to an El Paso hospital after becoming ill but died early December 8.
The death has caused an uproar among immigrant advocates and Democrats who are demanding answers about how this happened. They also are proposing ideas to prevent further illegal immigrants’ death.
ICE agents in New England detained more than 50 illegal aliens in raids in the last two days (Dec. 4-5, 2018) targeting alleged criminals including drug dealers and murderers. Sadly, many of these illegal aliens had been freed by local liberal judges and jails that followed sanctuary city policies.
The busts occurred in the Boston area, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Connecticut to combat the region’s deadly opiate epidemic. “The target was fentanyl, heroin and cocaine dealers and the illegal immigrants doing it,” the law enforcement official said, adding details of the sweep are due to be made public Thursday.
Among those arrested were three Brazilian illegal aliens who are wanted in Brazil for murder. The sweep netted 50 suspected illegal alien drug dealers and enough fentanyl to “kill half the state,” said one top law enforcement official.
Hungary, Australia, Israel, and several other countries have said that they will not sign the document or have signaled that they will not, following the lead of U.S. President Donald Trump who rejected the compact in December 2017.
Hungary’s foreign minister Péter Szijjártó has condemned the UN Migration Pact for attempting to “legalize illegal immigration,” announcing his country will vote ‘no’ on the agreement in Marrakesh in December.
Mr. Szijjártó told media on Thursday that “The goal of the UN Global Compact for Migration is to legalize illegal immigration, which is unacceptable and violates the sovereignty of member states, including that of Hungary.”
Switzerland's government on Wednesday backtracked from its pledge to support a United Nations migration pact after lawmakers insisted they have the final say on the matter.
The United States, several European countries along with Israel and Australia have already said they would reject the compact, which seeks to open up legal migration and better manage migratory flows.
A Census Bureau report released on December 3, 2018, has proven what many Americans have suspected for decades, that immigrants (legal and illegal) are tapping into welfare programs set up to help indigent and ailing Americans. Welfare programs are a magnet that rewards immigration, including illegal aliens.
The analysis of 2014 figures showed 63 percent of the immigrants are using at least one welfare program, and it grows to 70 percent for those here ten years or more, confirming another concern that once immigrants tap into welfare, they don’t get off it. "Welfare" is addictive, and immigrants lose their work incentive and get hooked on it.
On Monday, Nov. 19, Democrat New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced that his state administration had reached a deal with four pro-illegal alien/open borders groups to pay to them $2.1 million for free legal costs for illegal aliens. This funding means the state is using taxpayer money to fight federal law immigration enforcement that is funded by the same taxpayers. That’s outrageous and ridiculous.
Many county and municipal governments like Los Angeles, Austin, and San Antonio are funding similar programs to defend illegal aliens, even though some city governments like San Antonio claim they are not sanctuary cities. However, any state or local government that protect illegal aliens is a sanctuary community, and they are encouraging lawlessness.
Unfortunately, last August 2018 a federal judge in San Francisco blocked Pres. Trump’s efforts to withhold federal funding from cities and states that don’t comply with immigration law enforcement. Liberal activist judges are endangering American citizens with their rulings.
Sanctuary cities and states openly defy immigration laws by protecting illegal aliens. We cannot encourage and reward illegal immigration in any form or fashion and for any reason. Otherwise, we get more.
