U.S. Immigration System Isn’t Broken – Laws Are Simply Not Being Enforced

illegal-alien-thumb

Politicians, along with their media allies, are constantly parroting the lie that our immigration system is broken. Actually, there is very little wrong the immigration system we have in place, except for enforcement of our current immigration laws, and the fact that our borders are not being protected and secured.

When criminal illegal aliens are detained and their crimes are deemed to be “minor” or “non-violent”, they are summarily released back into the population. During a one month period, between February 1st and March 9th of 2013, ICE released 2,228 illegal aliens, with 629 of them having prior criminal records.

In recent testimony before a congressional committee, ICE chief John Morton revealed the following:

Morton said the freed detainees included not only undocumented immigrants with no criminal records, but also people convicted of theft, financial crimes and drunk driving. “In some cases, multiple DUIs,”

If our current laws are not being enforced, why should the American people believe the any new laws will be enforced? As a matter of fact, there are provisions in the New Immigration Bill which allow criminal illegal aliens, with multiple convictions, to qualify for immediate legal status.

In a recent press release, Senator Jeff Sessions pointed out the many problems with the Gaggle of Eight’s Amnesty Bill, including the Obama Administration’s abuse of prosecutorial discretion to prevent the enforcement of federal law.

It will also provide safe harbor to those who have committed a variety of offenses—ranging from identity theft, to multiple immigration violations, and even those with criminal records.

Another misleading statistic, being reported by Amnesty proponents and major media outlets, is that 11 million illegal aliens will be given a path to citizenship (Amnesty). The actual number is closer to 57 million over the next 10 years.

Sen. Jeff Sessions shows that more than 32 million immigrants would receive legal status over the next decade and an additional 25 million would be granted non-immigrant work visas under the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill.

It is clear that any new provisions pertaining to securing the borders, as well as limiting, prosecuting and/or deporting illegal aliens, will not be enforced. Even the GOP front man for Amnesty, Marco Rubio has admitted that “waivers” in the bill give federal officials discretion in applying any new laws.

The time is now, before this flawed, misguided legislation is passed into law, for all concerned citizens to contact their representatives and urge them to oppose the so called “Immigration Reform Bill”, which is effectively, nothing more than Amnesty without real enforcement.

Tea Party To GOP Establishment: Where are the cuts?

big-gov-th

The phrase; “We need to work together, in a bi-partisan manner, to get things done” is a nice sounding, focus group tested, little sound bite, which usually draws applause from constituents on all sides of the political spectrum, but what does it really mean? Well, it really means that the political class wants to come together to pass new legislation, the purpose of which is to grow the size and scope of government, institute new taxes and fees, pass new regulations or create another unaccountable bureaucracy, which is what politicians do and what most of the ruling class think their job is. This is not what Tea Party backed representatives were elected to do. As a matter of fact, this is just the opposite of what Tea Party backed representatives were elected to do.

Does John Boehner actually think the Tea Party sent representatives to congress so they could negotiate with Democrats to increase the size and scope of Government and capitulate to Obama’s “Tax and Spend” agenda? The TEA in Tea party literally means “Taxed Enough Already”. Where are the cuts, Congressman Boehner? I’m referring to real cuts, not faux cuts, like smaller increases in growth. An increase is not a cut, no matter how you “slice” it. Where is the effort to decrease the size of scope of government and eliminate our massive debt? When was the last time politicians actually eliminated a government agency or decreased the size and reach of the Federal government? In the past, politicians have cut taxes, but they didn’t cut spending. They just ballooned the debt. These destructive policies must end.

The U.S. debt is now over 17 Trillion dollars. I just used this calculator to determine how much of the debt I owe, which is: $175,811. Please feel free to calculate the amount you owe. The average American citizen is now on the hook for approximately $120,000. This kind of outrageous debt is obviously unsustainable.

We all need to realize that there needs to be measurable decreases in the size of government or the entire system is going to collapse. Kicking the can down the road is not a strategy to solve this crisis. The Tea Party sounded the alarm but were demonized by the left, the right and the media. The demonetization needs to end. Politicians and voters need to face up to the crisis at our door and do something about it now, before it’s too late.

Mark Levin On The Ken Cuccinelli Campaign & The GOP’s Anti-Tea Party Agenda

Mark Levin lays out the case as to why the GOP wants to see Ken Cuccinelli lose. Going forward, the GOP plans to blame the Tea Party and promote establishment picks like Chris Christie.

The Real Reason The GOP Establishment Wants To Destroy The Tea Party

The GOP Establishment Mindset

One would think that true conservative “Republicans” would welcome a grass roots effort to push the party toward a smaller, more accountable government, one that’s based on principles of a Constitutional “Republic”. However, it should be crystal clear, at least to those of us who actually pay attention, the entrenched GOP establishment has no real interest in moving away from progressive policies, printing & borrowing money, crony capitalism or costly and misguided interventionist foreign policies. The GOP, and their big moneyed special interests, understand that the Tea Party movement is a real threat to the status quo and can serve to block the progressive agenda of the financial supporters who keep the establishment in power.

In the mind of the political elite, a perfect example of why the Tea Party must be neutralized is the upcoming illegal alien amnesty bill. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who fully supports the amnesty agenda and spends millions lobbying both Democrats and Republicans, trotted out lobbyist Bruce Josten, who, as reported by UPI, recently stated..

One of the most positive things that Congress could get done between now and the end of the year is to get immigration reform up and over the finish line.

Business Lobby -vs- The Tea Party

The Chamber of Commerce is now characterizing the Tea Party as “Anti-Business”, even though that assertion is far from reality. The Tea Party movement supports free markets and free people, not centralized planing and no bid contracts for political supporters. The truth of the matter is that the Chamber is increasingly becoming nothing more than a lobbying firm for big government crony capitalists. The Chamber is spending millions on incumbent RINO “yes men”, in an effort to maintain the corrupt status quo.

The GOP Establishment Will Never Relinquish Power

The progressive neocon wing of the GOP, represented by the likes of Lindsey Graham and John McCain, are happy to go along with the amnesty agenda, mistakenly believing the GOP will be rewarded with Hispanic voters, which is highly unlikely.  Let us not forget the GOP establishment backed Charlie Crist of Florida, who was beaten out by a Tea Party backed Marco Rubio. That race completely debunked the misguided notion that the more conservative candidate can’t win, along with the idea that the GOP needs squishy, middle of the road, candidates in order to appeal to independents. Charlie Crist is now running as a Democrat, proving that he was actually a progressive political hack, all along.

The power elites in the GOP will never accept a majority of candidates who stand on conservative principles, because like Crist, they really aren’t true conservatives. Most of them want to maintain the huge bureaucracy that allows them to maintain power. They have no interest in real spending cuts. The GOP establishment can’t even stomach the small 2% sequester cuts that are now in place. They will be looking to remove those cuts at the first available opportunity. The current GOP plan appears to be an effort to bargain away sequester cuts, for phony promises of future entitlement cuts, which we all know will never happen.

Hate and lies will continue to be directed at the Tea Party, as long as they oppose the central planners who seek to control every aspect of our lives. I believe the establishment would rather see the GOP go down in flames before they would ever capitulate to constitutional principles espoused by the small government wing of their party.


The Unholy Alliance Between The GOP Establishment, The Chamber of Commerce and George Soros

As I’ve already outlined in this article, the Chamber of Commerce is committed to negating the Tea Party movement. Now comes Carl Rove, the poster boy for the GOP establishment, who has created the Conservative Victory Project, an Anti-Tea Party PAC. Mark Levin perfectly articulated the purpose of Rove’s new PAC.

“We’re being stabbed in the back,” Levin declared.

“Here’s a project funded by crony capitalists, funded by corporatists, who are not conservative, funding a group called the Conservative Victory Project,” Levin began. “This is the sort of thing Barack Obama does; this is a thing Marxists do; they give a name to themselves which has nothing to do with what they’re really up to in order to try and control the propaganda.”

“I’m just showing you how diabolical this effort is,” Levin continued.

When it comes to influence from the left-wing Fabian Socialists, it usually gets around to the George Soros connection and this case is no different. Soros is funding the National Immigration Forum, an organization whose purpose is to pressure lawmakers into supporting Amnesty for illegal aliens.

 Breitbart News exposed NIF for being Soros-funded while running a campaign to make it appear as though evangelicals support granting amnesty to illegal immigrants, Noorani admitted his group accepts funding from Soros. Noorani denies that the funding was being used for the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a project that his group runs the operations of, but admits that millions of NIF’s dollars come from Soros and that about 10 percent of its budget this year comes from the leftwing billionaire.

Soros is also intimately connected to Facebook’s Zuckerberg’s FWD.us push for amnesty. Zuckerberg hired Soros’ former chief financial strategist Stanley Druckenmiller. Druckenmiller served as Soros’ chief strategist for more than a decade.

Mitt Romney’s top 2012 campaign donor, Wall Street hedge fund manager Paul Singer, also funds NIF, as Breitbart News has reported.

What voters need to understand is that the real powers that be, the moneyed  interests who fund campaigns and set the agenda, don’t care whether a Democrat or a Republican is elected. They only care about their own interests and they will do anything to keep small government conservatives and libertarians from gaining a majority in the GOP, even if it means destroying the GOP and allowing the left to retain power, in perpetuity.
