The ridiculous comments by New York Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can be amusing, but she should be challenged, and her stupidity should be exposed. On Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019, Ocasio-Cortez vowed to defund U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and said all Latino people must be exempt from immigration laws because they are “native” to U.S. lands as they are descendants of Native people.
As a member of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez is irresponsible, un-American, and ignorant to make such comments about ICE and Latinos. She raised her hand to swear to swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution, which includes immigration laws and the role of ICE. However, Ocasio-Cortez wants to prevent ICE from protecting the nation against illegal immigration by defunding them.
Ocasio-Cortez also makes the wild assumption that all Latino people are “native” to the United States. Mexicans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and Central Americans IMMIGRANTS, whether legal or illegal, are NOT “native” to the U.S. That’s why they are called “IMMIGRANTS.”
The U.S. Border Patrol in Texas has begun conducting exercises to prepare for the arrival of one or more of the "migrant caravans," containing thousands of mainly Central Americans who want to enter the United States, “one way or another.” Is Texas prepared and what can be done to protect the border?
Sadly, Mexico has proven once again, that it is NOT our friend even though U.S. money was pledged to Mexico and Central America to stop caravans and illegal immigration on Dec. 19, 2018. Once again, last week, Mexico let this Central American caravan through their borders and even helped them with buses when they reached Mexico City yesterday Friday, Feb. 1, 2019.
Meanwhile, we have no border wall, and the Border Patrol is stressed out and stretched-thin. There is little to discourage and dissuade foreigner from entering our nation illegally or under pretenses.
CNN’s Jim Acosta, a liberal posing as a journalist who is one President Trump worst critics, tried to undermine the need for a border wall but his report backfired. However, he unintentionally proved that walls work.
Acosta toured a section of the U.S./Mexico border that has a wall. He stood at the wall and reported, “Here are some of the steel slats that the president’s been talking about. But as we’re walking along here, we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger.”
In other words, a wall on the border works! There is no danger or illegal immigration because there is a wall, a barrier, a strong fence, whatever.
The liberal media continuous expose themselves as agents and allies of the Democrat leftist agenda. They seek to promote their ideas and values through deceit and confusion, such as pushing the narrative that a border wall is racist and unnecessary.
The truth always comes out in end, no matter how hard anyone tries to hide it or stop it. Lies, by politicians or the media, are just a temporary delay to the inevitable.
The recent incidents of media bias including the BuzzFeed false report about Trump and the Covington Catholic school fake news reports about racist students are examples of national media bias. However, there are many examples of local media bias like the article about the Dreamers written by Lomi Kriel that appears in today, Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019 on the front page of the liberal San Antonio Express-News.
Lomi Kriel is the immigration reporter at the Houston Chronicle who owns and manages the SA Express. She is credited with being the first reporter to uncover the Trump administration’s separation of “migrant families” at the border in November 2017. Somehow she misses the point that these illegal alien families would not be separated if they didn’t enter the U.S. illegally, nor questions how many are "real" families.
In her article today, Kriel interviews five liberal pro-illegal alien persons and how Trump is not doing anything to help DACA recipients. She has comments from Sanaa Abrar, director for United We Dream, Houston DACA recipient Jesús Contreras, director of government relations for the American Immigration Lawyers Association Greg Chen, deputy political director at the American Civil Liberties Union Lorella Praeli, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
On the other hand, Kriel has two brief comments from conservatives. She quotes Ann Coulter, claiming Coulter is “influential among Trump’s base.” She also has comments from Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
Kriel ignores that Trump has proposed twice to help DACA recipients, including the current proposal to resolve the government shutdown and build the border wall. She conveniently ignores that Democrats are balking and that liberal activists are demanding open borders and that the abolishment of ICE.
It would be good if Kriel and all other news reporters stopped being agents of the Democratic Party and ceased promoting their liberal agenda. It would also be good if there were a "fair" media at local levels.
We keep hearing from Democrats and the liberal Media that the figures on illegal immigration are exaggerated or overblown for political purposes. If that's true, then please tell me how many ILLEGAL aliens are a tolerable number for you?
Democrats and the liberal Media seem to talk like illegal immigration is not a big deal. They say we must not overreact to “immigration,” but conveniently ignore the word ILLEGAL.
So how much “illegal” immigration is tolerable? How much of any ILLEGAL behavior if excusable to Democrats and the Media? How much crime, in general, is acceptable?
