Deport Illegal Aliens

Forum: Do You Favor Deportation Of Illegal Migrants?

The Watcher’s Council

Deport Illegal Aliens

Every week on Monday morning, the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum with short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture or daily living. This week’s question: Do You Favor Deportation Of Illegal Migrants?

Bookworm Room: I strongly support deportation — and I do not believe that it will require the government hunting down and deporting every single illegal alien in the country. Just as illegal aliens self-deported when the economy sank in 2008, illegal aliens will self-deport if (a) we stop giving them endless benefits and (b) they know there’s a reasonable risk that they will be bundled across the border post haste, taking their children with them. (Clearly, I do not believe that the 14th amendment, which was intended to give citizenship to the descendants of slaves who were forcibly imported into this country, applies to people who violate the law in order to be in this country in time to give birth.)

And speaking of children and the inevitable Leftist cry that “deportation hurts the children,” there will always be children who, sadly, suffer because of their parents’ decisions. At some point, one simply has to say “enough,” and embark upon a policy that prevents people from unilaterally deciding that they have a right to bring themselves and their extended families illegally into America. A strong border and sane immigration policy is also for the children.

A nation has the right to defend its borders. It also has the right to pass laws that control who comes in — even if people subsequently determine that those weren’t the best or smartest laws. If we get control over our borders and realize that “Hey, the Chamber of Commerce was right that we need more super cheap labor to drive down wages for other Americans and to drive blacks out of the market (bad things) — all in the service of making consumer goods cheaper (good thing),” then we should pass laws accordingly. Our laws should not be decided by people who have no legal right to be here in the first place.

Puma By Design: Deport them ALL. The streets of New York City would be a lot more peaceful and safer if illegal immigrants were deported. Adding to that, the prisons would be emptier.

It is a long-standing joke here in NYC that even at a time, back in the day when illegal immigrants were being deported, it meant very little.

There are those who simply walk across the U.S. Mexico border while others cross the Canadian/U.S. border. Simple as that.

About fifteen years ago, a former neighbor and friend, may she rest in peace, an American became involved with a Jamaican fellow who did a year’s stint at Riker’s Island for the illegal possession of a firearm.

Upon the end of his sentence, he was deported, say on a Monday and standing back in my neighbor’s living room the following Friday afternoon.

As far as living standards, they bring their bad habits with them. In residential buildings across NYC, there are fifteen to twenty family members or friends living in a one or two bedroom apartment.

In private homes, often rented out, it is far worse. I recall stepping out one morning to go to work and seeing a plastic bag full of garbage nailed to a tree. WHO DOES THAT?

How does on invest in a house but not a trashcan? Some of the long time homeowners in our area are fighting with their new neighbors who popped up overnight not to throw their garbage on the sidewalk or in the service road, which they never do during the day. Now THAT would imply that they know better, wouldn’t it?

Moving on, we are all aware that illegal immigrants come to country, get an education and all sorts of entitlements, among them food stamps or whatever it is they get today on our dime.

Throughout large immigration (legal and illegal) communities in NYC, there are these storefront shipping businesses.

Immigrants, many illegal, use their government entitlements to purchase everything from clothes to appliances of ALL sizes. The items are stored in huge bins to be shipped back to the individual’s family and friends in their native countries which can be purchased at supermarkets and 99-cent stores that cater to that community.

Immigrants illegal and otherwise who are collecting food stamps purchase perishables, stock the bins with their purchases and again, ship the items back overseas to their families. The worst part is that no one bats an eye.

I only learned of this when my cab driver, a legal immigrant from Guyana complained about it to me one day.Many, legal immigrants who work for a living complain but it never goes further than lip service. Probably because for every person of family who immigrates to the United States legally, at least a dozen, two dozen and more family members follow behind crossing the border illegally.

JoshuaPundit: Why no! Let’s simply allow more and more illegal migrants in until they finish replicating the corrupt, lawless hellholes they left here right in America!

It’s very important to understand that simply deporting 20 million people or so (that 11 million figure is so 1990’s) is only a start and not a remedy in itself. Thanks largely to Ted Kennedy, (please see my obituary of him dated 2009) there is a large legal infrastructure, well funded organizations and a political elite dedicated to exactly what I proposed in the above paragraph. It will be a war to the knife with people like the Democrat Party and La Raza leading the charge, That’s something I don’t think Donald Trump understands fully after reading his immigration plan in full

A fence is a fence, but what is really going to be ultimately involved to cut to the roots of the problem is entirely new laws by which we both make it less tenable for illegal aliens to come here and determine more precisely whom American will extend the privilege of legal migration to. And ideally, these laws will also include a retroactive principal of at least a decade to reexamine who has been allowed to migrate legally as ‘refugees’ using diversity visas and phony asylum claims. That’s unfortunately necessary because of the Obama Administration’s open and long term advocacy for illegal migrants, winking at ‘refugee’s like the Tsaernovs of Boston Marathon fame and serial failure to enforce existing laws.

Immigration worked quite well for America when the applicants were well screened, when there was no extensive welfare state, when the culture of much of the migrants was compatible with our own, and when a certain degree of assimilation was a given.

The Glittering Eye: Yes. However, I think we’ll get more bang for the buck with serious workplace enforcement than we will by building a higher or wider or more closely guarded wall. Nowadays quite a few of our illegal immigrants entered the country legally with tourist or student visas and just stayed. A wall across the southern border will do nothing about those.

Well, there you have it.

There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well. – Booker T. Washington

We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community. – Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia

Bad schools, crime, drugs, high taxes, the social security mess, racism, the health care crisis, unemployment, welfare state dependency, illegitimacy, the gap between rich and poor. What do these issues have in common? Politicians, the media, and our so-called “leaders” lie to us about them. They lie about the cause. They lie about the effect. They lie about the solutions. – Larry Elder

This week’s winning essay, Puma By Design’s Black Lives Matter Hypocrites Oblivious to Epidemic of Black Violence, Genocide, is a forceful eloquent takedown of the hypocrisy of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Here’s a slice:

Last Wednesday night, after returning from a birthday party, Jamyla Bolden, was sitting on her mother’s bed doing her homework when someone walked up to their house and fired five shots into the home killing 9 year old Jamyla and hitting her mother, Kendric Henderson, in the leg.

St. Louis Dispatch:

They also believe the shooter stood close to the front of the house and took aim through the bedroom window. There were five visible bullet holes on the exterior of the house: three in the screens of two windows with shattered glass behind them, and two more in the house’s aluminum siding….

‘When I turned her over I could see the blood coming out of her nose, but I didn’t know where she was shot at. I kept saying ‘I think she’s been shot, call 911,’ Henderson said.

Grieving the loss of a friend, one of Jamyla’s fourth grade classmates asked, “Why did she have to die.”

Where is the outrage?

Where is the Black Lives Matter movement?

HELLO? I CAN’T HEAR YOU, fake Black guy, Shaun King, DeRay McKesson, leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement!

Nothing, just CRICKETS.

The night after Jamyla’s ten-year-old brother witnessed the death of his sister; more than 150 people lead by Black Lives Matter took to the streets of Ferguson to protest the death of an armed black teenager shot and killed by two officers last Wednesday.

According to police reports, just two police officers were preparing to serve a warrant, two black teenagers, armed and in possession of crack cocaine made a run for it out the back door of the home.

The officers pursued the teens and after being ordered to stop, 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey (above) refused to drop his gun when ordered to do so, may have even pointed the firearm at the officers and it was a wrap.

NYDN

Ball-Bey was fatally wounded and pronounced dead at the scene while the second suspect, only identified as being in his mid to late teens, managed to escape, police said.

Police say they found a stolen gun and an extended magazine in Ball-Bey’s possession and that four guns and an unspecified quantity of crack cocaine were recovered at the scene. Several others inside the home were taken into custody without incident….

As usual, Ball-Bey’s death presented opportunity for those with a nefarious agenda and instantly became the next battle cry from Black Lives Matter to create abut chaos, riot, tear and burn down that, which has not yet been rebuilt after they incited last year’s riots that all but destroyed the city of Ferguson, Missouri.

There are elements in the Black community who will white wash an individual fundamentally transforming a thug into a martyr but depending on whom one asks, it has yet to be determined whether or Ball-Bey fits the bill.

According to Ball-Bey’s family, he was a good kid but the following video in which Ball-Bey, a gangster rapper, consorted with gang bangers, possessed guns and bought into the gangster mentality might imply otherwise. (Warning: Raw language)

Pockets of Resistance Fight Back! Demand Local Approval of Refugee Invasion!

Resistance1

“Terrorists have made it known they want to manipulate the refugee program to sneak operatives to the West…” – Mike McCaul

This shocking video describes the imminent threat we face as the State Department moves to secretly bring 65,000 unvetted Syrians to America under Obama’s regime with no local knowledge or control.

The federal Refugee Resettlement (RR) program is operated today by the Global Left, the UN, Islam, and religious frauds. The goal is to Change America by Changing its People.

As a result, we are drowning in refugees who are destroying our Constitutional freedoms, overburdening our welfare system and posing a genuine national security threat.

Will you as an American citizen stand up and fight this national suicide via LEGAL IMMIGRATION?

By signing this petition, you are telling your Governor and state representatives to take specific action to allow City and County Councils to decide if their budgets can support refugee resettlement and if their people want it!

What’s needed is a proviso to your state budget such as this:

No state funds shall be expended to assist in the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program unless the community targeted for resettlement approves.

Sign the petition if these are your words:

I will not tolerate giving my tax dollars to secretly “planted”, unvetted refugees that would otherwise go to aid poor families in my community.

I demand you do your job by representing the Will of The People rather than the Resettlement industry that may be funding your campaigns.

Once you have signed the petition, check to see your signature among your fellow patriots marked on the interactive map.

Use the social media icons on the petition to share it via email, Twitter, Facebook with your friends and watch the map light up as “Pockets of Resistance” like you fight back.

Illegal Aliens

The Invaders: A Parable

By: Lloyd Marcus

Illegal Aliens

Pulling into our driveway after a relaxing month long cruise, my wife Mary yelled, “What the?” Mexican flags, shirtless heavily tattooed men, barefoot children, women (many pregnant) old cars, discarded beer cans and trash were all over our property. I recruited my Spanish speaking neighbor. He yelled over the blaring Mexican music expressing my outrage to the group’s leader. The leader told me to go “f” myself. He said they have a right to a better life.

The invaders had an insane tangle of extension cords plugged into my electrical outlets. Sinking into the mud of my once beautiful lawn, I called the police. Sheriff Bob showed up to inform me that the mayor decreed ours a sanctuary community. He also conveyed the mayor’s zero tolerance for my hateful racist attitude.

Code enforcement cited me for various violations. I was ordered to clean up my property, add bathroom facilities and upgrade my electrical power to accommodate the daily influx of new residents.

Mary yelled from our bedroom, “Oh, my gosh!” Her jewelry including her 30th wedding anniversary diamond earrings, was gone.

A neighbor updated me on our community’s crisis. Beloved elderly, Mr Ben, was beaten and murdered, eight students were raped, numerous neighbors were assaulted and several homes were burglarized. Remarkably, not a word of the crime-wave was mentioned in our newspaper. Clearly, the mayor was behind the media blackout.

As a matter of fact, Community Times reporters flooded us with articles praising the invaders and our loving mayor for welcoming these saintly souls seeking a better life. Me and fellow neighbors who opposed the invasion and complained about the cost were branded haters, selfish and racists. The mayor made us owners responsible for providing food, health-care and education for the invaders occupying our properties.

Widowed Miss Shirley, the community gossip, gave Mary the scoop. She reported to Mary that many of the invaders worked for wealthy contributors to the mayor’s reelection campaign. The invaders were paid peanuts to work as domestics, janitors, laborers and maintaining properties.

My feisty Irish wife said, “One thing for sure, the mayor and his rich pals don’t have to worry about their estates being invaded. Their homes are protected behind 12 foot fences armed with barbwire, electric and cameras. Meanwhile, we’re forced to be their invader’s welcome wagon!”

Folks, the above tale is fiction; a parable I wrote years ago illustrating illegal immigration. I was stunned that so many readers thought my outrageous tale was true; a sad commentary on the insanity we have come to expect from government.

Both political parties have a vested interest in supporting the invasion. Big business gets cheap labor. Democrats have blacks on the path to aborting themselves into extinction. http://bit.ly/1DBeZ9E Illegals offer Democrats’ a fresh crop of future voters http://bit.ly/1U6Cw5w; an underclass unskilled, uneducated and dependent on government.

Insidiously, both parties and the mainstream media prey upon the goodness of the American people. Anyone opposing the invasion is branded racist, heartless and mean.

GOP presidential contender Jeb Bush calls embracing illegal aliens an “act of love.” http://bit.ly/1KxONuA Rush Limbaugh says this is not immigration. We are being invaded. http://bit.ly/1EFg2Bp

For several years, I was honored to sing my original, “Celebrate America” at U.S. Naturalization Ceremonies in Maryland. I took pride knowing my song was the first thousands heard as new Americans after taking their oath of allegiance. Every ceremony was electric, the hall radiating with emotion and excitement; tears flowing down countless faces. Unbelievably, Obama decreed that new applicants will no longer be required to pledge their allegiance. http://bit.ly/1h3olBy

A moving memorable scene. In his 80’s or 90s, family members raised the gentlemen from his wheelchair to his feet. A grandchild held up his right hand. His entire family was tearful as he recited the oath. Folks, these people truly wanted to be Americans. They studied, passed the test and were anxious to assimilate and contribute. After reciting their oath and hearing the emcee say, “Congratulations”, the hall always erupted in applause and cheers of elation.

Obama refuses to obey federal immigration law. http://bit.ly/1I2qkf0 Ordered to break the law, border security allows everyone to enter, including gang members, rapists and murderers. http://bit.ly/1LqIqPE

Obama is endangering and devastating American families, loved ones raped and murdered by invaders. http://bit.ly/1h3WqRX Then, Obama showers the invaders with welfare and government checks. Yes, government checks. http://washex.am/1NMcdQ3

Under-reported (hidden) is the epidemic of strange diseases infecting our kids because Obama forced public schools to take-in invader’s children. http://bit.ly/1EbK853

Obama rolling out the red carpet welcome-mat to invaders is a huge slap in the face to legal new American citizens and those respecting our laws following the legal immigration process.

As practically every Obama policy, his amnesty for illegals is another self-serving evil anti-American agenda item disguised as love. Thank God a few GOP presidential contenders have the backbone to firmly saying, “No!”
