UPDATE 9/10/23: Senator Sinema of Arizona thinks it’s a bit outrageous that her state overrun with illegal immigrants is getting $56 million in aid while backpedaling Sanctuary City NYC merits $106 million. Anything wrong with this picture?
UPDATE 9/6/23: Much to the dismay of those fans of sanctuary cities and lawn signs professing “hate has no home here,” reality has set in, and desperate cries of NIMBY!! are too little, too late. Mayor Adams and the clueless New Yorkers who put him in office are this week’s Exhibit A. Meanwhile, bravo to those struggling border governors like Abbott keeping those busses rolling to the Luvvies up north. You asked for it, you got it!!
UPDATE 8/30/23: When questioned about the difference between a Biden or Trump Presidency, the issue of secure borders is at or near the top of the list. Ask property owners in Arizona/New Mexico/Texas or, rather than going that far, ask New Yorkers, newly awakened from Sanctuary City Wokeness when having to deal with the sudden influx of illegals.
UPDATE 7/13/23: If the goal of the Obama-infused Dem Party is permanent civil war (PCW), what better way to foment conflict than flooding communities nationwide with imported illegals? Redirecting city/state/national treasuries away from tax-paying citizens to planted outsiders, many of them criminals and social misfits, has a magically chaotic effect on human camaraderie.
UPDATE 6/22/23: Is there no shame among those champions of unchecked immigration and sanctuary cities like NYC Mayor Adams even after walking back his pledge to house illegals at Gracie Mansion?
UPDATE 5/19/23: Need new permanently Democrat voters? End all border vetting restrictions, flood the country with new welfare recipients! A good plan but a bit “problematic” (one of those newly ubiquitous terms in use by Wokesters) for the communities saddled with handling this deliberate mass invasion.
UPDATE 5/11/23: There was a time when America or Israel were always the final refuges? But after America and Israel, where?
UPDATE 5/10/23: Remember when De Santis was deemed such a monster sending all those illegals to those blessed sanctuary spots like New York and Martha’s Vineyard? Now Eric Adams takes a page out of Ron’s book and is dumping the wretched refuse in the suburbs and, surprise, not winning any popularity contests.
Of course, it’s all about helping folks.
UPDATE 4/22/23: If the sketchy NY Mayor’s outrage about Biden’s open borders is to be believed as a bellwether, Dems and Repubs in “sanctuary cities” all across the land have an issue they can ALL get behind in 2024: Build The Wall! MAGA!….But don’t count on it.
The “pledge” cited below was 2017, and the POTUS=Elect was Donaldus. Then, to no rational person’s surprise, real life (money, crime, chaos) impinged on Leftist delusion.
UPDATE 3/18/23: Under the leadership of an attractive Italiana, the country that gave us Sophia Loren, Puccini, Michelangelo and rigatoni now sets the best example for handling illegal immigration.
UPDATE 2/28/23: One very distinct, horrific consequence of open borders is far removed from the “Dreamers” narrative applauded by the bleeding heart crowd. Think inhuman child labor practices to rival those of 19th/early 20th century sweat shops, all possible thanks to the human trafficking taking place as soon as new illegals arrive. Recall those highly publicized tears shed for the kids separated from their families? Turned over to “guardians” upon entry, children are farmed out to the highest bidders seeking the cheapest, most easily disposable/renewable labor. Somehow, those teary sentimentalists on the Left voting for unchecked, illegal immigration remain blissfully ignorant of the consequences of bad leadership.
UPDATE 2/17/23: Italy’s new PM was elected on a platform of controlled immigration, and her poll popularity after 100 days indicates the people are happy with her. God willing, Americans vote with the same common sense goals in mind and hold their candidates to them.
UPDATE 1/12/23: In their zeal to create a permanent voting majority of government dependents, the Dems are very much against the Trump-era rulings limiting citizenship from those liable to become permanent trough-feeders. Unfortunately, the Texas-led movement to preserve such rulings has been rejected by the Supreme Court.
UPDATE 1/6/23: Perhaps you didn’t hear, but there’s a problem of out-of-control influx of illegals down on the southern border. Not to worry. Joe is heading down there next week to fix the mess caused, of course, by Republicans. Like everything else he says, he’s good for it. He’s a Biden!
UPDATE 1/4/23: To ignore Mayorkas’ (and Biden’s) deliberate creation of our porous southern border is to promote it. Without some concrete action opposing it, the invasion flood will rapidly become a tsunami, exactly what the Woke/Progs want, but the last thing we need to regain control of our future as an autonomous nation.
UPDATE 12/23/22: It turns out America’s worst, most irresponsible President DID consider the border invasion more than a minor little problem among greater problems as he recently claimed. The king actually cursed his lowly courtiers for not instantly solving the problem for him, knowing how badly this might reflect on him. The damage done to the humans involved and the impact the invasion has on communities across the nation to date has yet to gain entry into that pea brain.
UPDATE 12/15/22: Remember Slow Joe has got a lot more important things to do than stop the illegal migrant tsunami on the southern border. For instance, he needs to try out all the new flavors of ice cream when Dr. Jill lets him loose in the malt shoppe.
UPDATE 12/8/22; It’s official according to the fake POTUS when asked about The Border: “There are a lot of more important things going on” than millions of unvetted foreigners pouring in to be fed/clothed/sheltered/contained/bought and owned by the Dem Party with “other people’s money” from the U.S. Treasury. What could be so important about the chaos and suffering such a displaced mob creates in any single community, let alone thousands throughout the country?
“…a lot more important things going on…”
UPDATE 11/24/22: Hearing news of suddenly exploding violent crime in big-hearted “sanctuaries” like Martha’s Vineyard, chuckles abound among those amused by signs that read “All Migrants Are Welcome” and “Hate Has No Home Here.” No doubt it’s all the fault of heartless meanies like De Santis and Abbott. Outbursts of reality like this will become epidemic if similarly deranged politicos like Schumer get their wish granting amnesty for “all 11 million” illegals. How about a trial run of random tempest-tost wretched refuse dropped into and confined to Chuck’s neighborhood before we follow thru on this for everyone else?
UPDATE 11/10/22: With its latest installed leadership, the boot-shaped land of soil, sun, sea, song and now SENSE is showing Europe The Way out of the illegal immigration vortex.
UPDATE 11/5/22: Chuck Schumer, rock-solid Democrat protector of our borders and national integrity, but that was then before he and his Party figured out that New Democrats can be imported.
UPDATE 10/17/22: It’s always helpful when the Dems blame the Repubs for their disasters since it’s admitting THEIR personally created disasters are a problem. If only they could blame someone else… which they always do. The Open Border is no exception.
UPDATE 10/15/22: Mayorkas. Whips On Horseback. See Lies Of The Week.
UPDATE 10/7/22: An dual attack of MVS (Martha’s Vineyard Syndrome) and NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) has hit poor, put-upon Woke NYC with the arrival of some bussed-in illegals. This has created A Real Problem, prompting stalwart Mayor Adams to declare a State of Emergency while undoubtedly feigning ignorance of his own political Party’s WOB (Wide Open Borders) policy creating this Problem. Yet another happy occasion for an acronym: BITA (Bitten In The Ass).
UPDATE 9/30/22: What is the real story of the border crisis? It is a far cry from the spirit of Emma Lazarus and “tempest-tost” immigrants coming here as independent individuals, “yearning to breathe free.” These millions now overrunning the border are the exploited merchandise of a human trafficking industry yielding financial profits and political power, backed by no less than the U.S. Government and the United Nations.
9/24/22: Do any of these Luvvies so keen on open borders and unrestricted immigration have a clue about the brutal dangers and death facing those trying to sneak in courtesy of human traffickers and the harsh natural elements? Perhaps controlled, legal immigration might be the humane approach.
UPDATE 9/21/22: The laughable Martha’s Vineyard “humanitarian crisis” of 50 undesirable, quickly deported illegals is now into its second, giggle-inducing week, and the joke may prove to be a long-running one on Lib/Left hypocrites everywhere. We love you, we welcome you, now goodbye. I termed De Santis’ gesture “inspired” while Black radio personality Charlamagne Tha God gives it a “genius” nod. Maybe the Luvvies will at long last call it “real life” and throw in the towel on this particular part of their whole delusional scam about “caring” from afar while letting others shoulder actual burdens.
One additional wrinkle in the feigned outrage of the MV set at the plight of these Venezuelan “refugees” is their original enthusiasm and support (now probably less vocally) for the Communist Chavez who made Venezuela unlivable. Human rights champion Joe Brandon is even quoted this week as saying that sending illegals back to Venezuela, Cuba or Nicaragua is “not rational.” Makes sense considering he appears to be fully aware and even complicit in Venezuela’s release of the dregs of its prison population into wide-open-border America. And then there’s the little issue of deadly drugs virtually being mainlined into the American population courtesy of the Mexican cartels and China.
Like everything else in LeftWorld, yesterday’s “rational” is today’s “irrational”…and, given enough time, vice versa. They’re just words after all. Whatever reality is convenient for the moment.
UPDATE 9/21/22: New Mexico has come up with one more Orwellian bit of doublethink (holding two entirely opposed views simultaneously) to advance their agenda. In case that agenda be lost in the fog, the goal is a Dem UniParty by importing millions of foreigners as new voters without the trouble of being legal Americans. In the new scenario, the concept of “legal” has been rendered meaningless. This time it’s making it LEGAL for ILLEGALS to practice law. In the handy name of diversity and inclusion, someone breaking a law is still entitled to defend someone else guilty of breaking the same law. In 4 words, there is no law if the lawyers themselves are breaking it without penalty. And where there is no law, there is anarchy.
UPDATE 9/19/22: The good, sensible people of Martha’s Vineyard should be congratulated repeatedly and very publicly honored for the way they’ve handled illegal immigration. One suggestion is to make a verb out of “Martha’s Vineyard.” To MV is what should be done routinely on our southern border every day, only by the thousands, not dozens. Do it the Martha’s Vineyard way! New definition! To Martha’s Vineyard (MV): use rational, legal force without delay to deport illegal aliens.
UPDATE 9/15/22: One thoroughly corrupt, illegal election has enabled the invasion of MILLIONS of illegal immigrants across a wide-open southern border. “You are all welcome here!!” and “We embrace you!” trumpet all those big-hearted liberal yard signs way up north in wealthy, securely guarded communities. Then, 300 illegals are transported to Illinois and 50 to Martha’s Vineyard, and we suddenly have, respectively, an “Emergency Disaster!” and a “humanitarian crisis!” Those feel-good yard signs have quickly come down, and now the message is NIMBY! NIMBY! NIMBY! (Not In My Back Yard!)
Odd how selective the outrage of White Libs is when faced with the consequences of anything they advocate FOR OTHERS, including unchecked immigration. You like “sanctuary cities?” Coming right up! This is not a problem for the political Party they support but a strategy to create a permanent voting majority of imported “new Americans.” But don’t count on comfortable, self-satisfied hypocrites to question their own “humanitarian” motives.
UPDATE 9/15/22: For the really upscale NIMBY crowd, De Santis has made the totally inspired move of flying illegals to Martha’s Vineyard. Oh, what a big meanie he is. Word is that the Obamas are having all those extra bedrooms in their seaside MV McMansion spiffed up for the new arrivals. Or maybe they’ll just abandon the place and hide out in their new digs in Hawaii where the unwashed can’t touch them…yet.
P.S. Breathe easy. No need for Muffy, Tripper, Barry and The Mooch to scurry off to higher ground. The untidy “dreamers” have been shipped off to Cape Cod, so it’s now somebody else’s problem, and everyone can go back to feeling furious about Trump and his awful cages.
UPDATE 8/30/22: The idea of Texas, Arizona and Florida bussing even a measly handful of illegals to NYC and DC is brilliant. ‘Twas not so long ago that those big-hearted “sanctuary cities” cried and cried (at a very comfortable distance) over the heartlessness of those border cities & states begging for immigration laws to be enforced. Typical Lefties: NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard). And the not-so-long-range result is suicide of our way of life.
8/25/22: This Congressman from Louisiana, Mike Johnson, bears watching, This is a public servant addressing the real, pressing problems of the day. Here on illegal immigration below questioning a double-talking, gibberish-spouting Immigration Czar Mayorkas regarding the Brandon administration’s wide open border policy. Likewise, his grilling of a brain-dead abortion advocate.
UPDATE 8/8/22: “Sanctuary City” New York Mayor Adams suddenly panics at the arrival of several dozen illegals from Texas which is overrun with thousands daily. His Honor deems one little busload “horrific” and, wildly projecting, “using innocent people “as political pawns to manufacture a crisis.” But, hey, no problem if those U.S. Treasury funds are redirected to Gotham. Show me the money!!
UPDATE 7/27/22: The influx of drugs through the open border is poisoning communities all over America, not just in the Southwest. One Idaho sheriff is fighting the resultant devastation 2000 miles north of Juarez. In the sheriff’s words, Immigration Czar Mayorkas is “an idiot” to claim the border is “safe” and “secure.” The sheriff’s too tactful, attributing mere idiocy to what is a plague of corrupt liars in Washington.
UPDATE 7/25/22: Pinball machine time for illegals. Texas ships them to DC, DC ships them, not to a Blue State where they don’t need the votes to create a permanent dependent majority, but to Florida. This serves not only to destabilize Florida but to make those rightwing crackers appear to be heartless for not welcoming the illegals with open arms. Win/Win for the Devil.
UPDATE 7/22/22: Peculiar that the Dems would unanimously vote down a bill toughening measures against child sex trafficking…unless that would play havoc with their uncontrolled Open Borders strategy to create a permanent majority, UniParty America. They do have their priorities.
UPDATE 7/14/22: The Brandon administration continues its own form of profitable human trafficking by awarding big bucks to a so-called “non-profit” group thwarting deportation of illegals. All those new Dem votes! Nice work if you can get it.
UPDATE 6/26/22: Illegal immigration aka importing Dem voters, continues apace with the full support of the illegitimate administration in D.C. There is also the little side issue of tortured and dead victims of human trafficking that accompanies “open borders.” Crime most certainly does pay in high political circles and never more transparently than in present day Foggy Bottom.
UPDATE 4/20/22: Texas Gov. Abbott has made DC a destination for illegals overrunning the Texas border. Why stop there? Next stop: Wilmington, specifically Joe & Jill’s doorstep!
]UPDATE 4/15/22: An “unsettling” time for Lone Star illegals and a happy day for Texans as Governor Abbott makes good on his promise to provide a free, one-way ride to our nation’s capital where they can be taken care of DIRECTLY by their most vocally prominent benefactors.
UPDATE 3/18/22: Look! Over there! Covid! Hey! This way! Ukraine! Check it out! Meanwhile, south (and north) of the border, things are going from bad to worse.
UPDATE 1/31/22: With its nocturnal humanitarian missions flying illegals in and dropping them all over the country, the Democrat Party has now officially branched out into human trafficking to beef up their fundraising efforts and swell their voting rolls.
UPDATE 1/29/22: URGENT!! The Ukrainian border is sacrosanct and must be secured by American forces at all costs!
The American border now open wide to roughly two million illegals in just the last year? Not so urgent.
So why advocate an impenetrable wall to keep out Russian barbarians while clandestinely by cover of night flying thousands of totally undocumented illegals into places like White Plains NY and Madison NJ (Murphy’s own personal “sanctuary”) ? Answer: if you can’t get enough legal American citizens here to vote for you, import new voters!
UPDATE 1/13/22: Oh goody! Let’s wait and see what happens to New York now that they’re clearing a million illegals to vote. Things have changed a bit since our grandparents came through Ellis Island a century back.
UPDATE 1/1/21: A typical day of unimpeded human trafficking as a planeload of unvetted, unvaccinated, undocumented illegals are flown by cover of night from El Paso and dropped into Allentown PA and clandestinely bussed away. The transport vehicle is marked “World Atlantic” owned by one Tomas Romero. Who is he? Who/why/where are these people being trafficked? Why is no one stopping them?
UPDATE 10/19/21: Swarms of illegals are coming in by the planeload and being dropped by dead of night all over the country. [NOT “dead of night,” corrects the WH Press Secretary; “early flights” to dispel any mistaken notion of illegal, clandestine activity.] With whose permission, may we ask? Certainly not those Red-voting communities who will be forced involuntarily to shoulder the burden of providing food/housing/everything for these new Democrat voters-to-be. There’s also the faint possibility that buckets of taxpayer money is being ladled out to bribe political leaders in most of the gracious, welcoming communities.
UPDATE 9/23/21: It’s becoming increasingly apparent that the border crisis created overnight by the Biden administration is deliberate and designed expressly to import new government dependents aka new Democrat voters. The careful re-location in key Red states of the thousands/millions pouring in and yet to come only makes the looming nightmare realer. No more walls, no more vetting of terrorists and assorted criminals, no more legitimate elections involving current U.S. citizens.
UPDATE 9/14/21: Despite Biden’s Wide Open Borders policy, Texas forges ahead to continue and complete Trump’s wall. After all, Texans are the ones who have to live with the immediate consequences of this illegal immigrant tidal wave.
8/30/21: The flood of illegals at the southern border has been declared “unsustainable” by the the faux administration’s Immigration Czar; but, unsurprisingly, little or nothing is being done to return it to the pre-Biden Trump era controls.
UPDATE 8/14/21: Immigration crisis? What crisis? After all, if the goal is to overload the American welfare rolls with new trough feeders sure to be permanent New Democrats, what’s the problem with tens of thousands of illegals pouring over the border? When Homeland Secretary Mayorkas is overheard saying “We’re going to lose” any semblance of border control, that’s not an admission of defeat but a celebratory statement of Mission Accomplished.
UPDATE 8/5/21: The deliberately uncontrolled invasion on the southern border is Cloward-Piven applied to immigration in the same manner as its formulators have suggested for the desperate, Democrat-controlled Inner Cities. The numbers to date suggest the DC cabal is well on its way to its goal of an overwhelming Democrat voting electorate. Meanwhile, as tens of thousands of these political pawns pile in illegally on top of one another under insufferable conditions, one notes the deafening silence emanating from those Trump-hating humanitarians once so vocally aghast at “children-in-cages.” Oh…there’s that also little extra bonus of Covid pouring in with them, unchecked.
Golly, even the most feeble-minded are liable to start thinking the present DC gang isn’t all that motivated to do right by the American fools who put them in power.
UPDATE 7/28/21: In case you’ve been away, the purpose of Kamala is to ignore the border, overrun the country with unaccountable illegals. Border Czar Kamal doing a bad job? On the contrary: in doing nothing. she’s creating millions of new Dems-On-The-Dole.
UPDATE 7/22/21: To the vocal luvvies with little chance of ever meeting an illegal immigrant, let alone taking care of him or fending off the damage he might do: try dealing with a literal invasion of your property (including a dead body here and there) near the border for a day, even a half hour. It’s not about “dreamers.”. It’s about permanent dependents, permanent Dem votes, a permanent electoral majority. It’s no mystery that Border Czarina Kamala never showed up at the border if the established default strategy is to do nothing. Flood the country with them, turn everything to chaos, then clamp down, hard.
UPDATE 7/“1/21: How will the Luvvies account for the terrorist attacks from illegals now on their way and already here thanks to porous borders?
UPDATE 6/17/21: Could it be the Dem plan to create a permanent electoral majority via an unending flood of naturalized illegals is backfiring? Is it possible the Latinos coming here have the long-range common sense to know that permanent government dependency is ultimately a dead end for them? Opening eyes and the decisive move of the Latino vote to the GOP is good news for them and everyone in America who thinks earning one’s living is preferable to the deadly tentacles attached to Big Gov largesse (bribery and ownership).
UPDATE 6/3/21: Every state has become a potential site of illegal immigration and human trafficking. These newly acquired U.S. citizens-to-be/government dependents/Democrat voters continue to be delivered to predominantly red states via bus or plane by dead of night. Check out video of a newly Woke Chattanooga Choo Choo.
UPDATE 5/9/21: The Islamic invasion of Europe was prophesized decades ago in a novel entitled “The Camp Of The Saints.” Being considered a tract espousing “White Supremacy” by the Left and a cause for alarm only serves to give it historical validity as a warning about unchecked immigration.
On the domestic front, “Follow The Money” proves to be reliable advice when exposing the profiteering motives of this administration’s Open Border advocates. There is major capital and political power to be accrued in human trafficking.
UPDATE 4/11/21: YA’LL COME! Bienvenidos, nuevo Americanos [aka new tax-subsidized Democrat voters]! Apparently, neither national security nor the level of human suffering created at the border matters to our present administration. Open Borders is an invitation to our worst enemies and the next 9/11. Shockingly, this is not incompetence but The Plan.
Who can forget that Trump’s effective enforcement and long-range plan of LEGAL immigration was branded inhumane? Suddenly, real “Children in Cages” in this golden Biden era has ceased to be an issue now that the compassionate Woke have deliberately created this disaster. Who’s to blame? Trump of course! Count on nothing but lies and obfuscation regarding this particular achievement of The Potemkin/Hologram administration which has no intention of doing anything to protect Americans from the invasion. And you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
On the YA’LL COME European front, the Continental Woke find their self-satisfied state of deep denial annoyingly rocked by the reality of hateful hordes of decidedly ungrateful newcomers from abroad. As one Woke acquaintance sneeringly chided me at the mention of such “fantasized” unpleasantness in his native France, “Where did you hear that? Fox News?”
UPDATE 3/30/21: Regarding the humanitarian crisis now exploding and getting worse by the minute at the border: this is solely, complete, willfully the monstrous creation of the operatives managing the Hologram Presidency, not as claimed, the preceding administration. Remember “Build The Wall!” leading up to the 2016 Election? Remember your outrage and resistance to the very sections of The Wall itself that have gone up in the four years since then?

ORIGINAL POST 8/20/15: In a long, comprehensive article written in 2006, journalist Heather MacDonald faces the immigration debate head-on in exhaustive (and exhausting) detail. Nothing has changed except that immigration has been seized upon in the years since by the Pelosi-Obama Crime Family as yet another way to “transform” America into a giant Welfare State run by the Democratic Party. Their scheme has been basically an unchecked Open Borders policy inviting millions more to the Federal trough, each one a new Democratic Party voter. Pelosi declares there’s no crisis here, only “opportunity.” This is fully in line with her crony Rahm’s cynical dictum about not letting a crisis go to waste. Make it an “opportunity!” Thus far, she has not explained the benefits to the parents of Kate Steinle or to those living with the consequences on the Mexican border.
In our parallel universe where we seek to preserve America for ourselves and for those outside honestly, legally seeking a better life, we must return to enforcement of the law. This requires the replacement of an administration intent on breaking and bending it for political benefit, both here and abroad. If only it were as easy as facing and knowing the facts, but there is nowhere else to start.
