House Dems to Introduce New Bill to Increase “Refugees” Taken Into USA From “Northern Triangle” to 100,000 Per Year

Breitbart.com reports that

As the immigration crisis at the border continues unabated with hundreds of thousands of migrants suffering and even dying on the treacherous trek through Mexico to the U.S. border, Democrats are blaming President Donald Trump and gearing up to introduce legislation to increase the number of refugees admitted to 100,000 a year.

This despite evidence that shows some 500,000 migrants —mostly from Central America— will get across the U.S./ Mexico border without being apprehended, including women and children. The United Nations reports that in 2018 the United States took in around 23,000 refugees from all over the world.

A refugee is an immigrant who gains asylum after the court grants him or her that status because they have met the “credible fear” standard of persecution in their home countries.

In an opinion piece in the Washington Post, the commentator blames President Donald Trump, even though Trump has tried multiple avenues to end the illegal immigration crisis at the U.S. border with Mexico,  including declaring a national emergency at the border, diverting federal defense funds to secure the border, and crafting comprehensive immigration reform legislation.

Thus far, judges and Democrats have thwarted those efforts.

The Post reported:

“Do we want to make it harder for desperate people to legally secure refuge in the United States, or easier for them to legally do so?

The Democratic answer to this question is: Make it easier for desperate people to migrate, provided it is done in a legal and orderly fashion, in as many ways as good policy allows.”

(Trump has blamed the Democrats not only for their inaction on the current border crisis but also for putting in place incentives — like catch and release and special treatment for migrants with children, even children that aren’t their own — that encourages migrants to come to the United States.)

“Now House Democrats are set to roll out a major new proposal on the asylum crisis that will constitute a big down payment on the longer-term argument Democrats are making,” the Post commentary said.

The bill is called the Northern Triangle and Border Stabilization Act — the majority of migrants in this latest border surge come from that Triangle: El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

The new bill would, according to the Post, increase services to minor migrants in federal custody, create more ways for Central Americans to get refugee status before coming to the U.S., expand “dramatically” the support for migrant families while their cases are being processed, and increase financial investment in Central America to address the alleged problems migrants are fleeing.

The Post notes that the 100,000 number is “separate and apart from the refugees we take in from elsewhere.”

The Democrats are playing the emotional card, as evidenced on the House floor last week when Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-CA) expressed the idea that all immigrants are “human beings” who deserve the same rights as citizens.

“The United States of America has been the gold standard and that is the argument that we are making today,” Cardenas said. “This is not a game.”

“We are fighting for the lives of human beings who should have the opportunity to be like everyone else on this floor to be allowed the freedom to be who they choose to be, who God made them to be in the greatest place on the planet,” Cardenas said. “And that’s why we are fighting today.”

This push by the Democrats and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media, to paint the President as a heartless monster is very hypocritical and disingenuous.

Per rewire.news,

The practice of separating immigrant families at the border isn’t new.

The Alien Transfer Exit Program

The United States since 2008 has had a policy called the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP), which detains male Mexican migrants near the border and, instead of repatriating them to their area of origin, leaves them hundreds—and sometimes thousands—of miles away at the opposite end of the U.S.-Mexico border. They are often released from custody at unusual times of day in completely unfamiliar areas where they have no family or other support system. The practice is supposed to deter further border crossing attempts, but instead it subjects migrants to crime and danger.

In 2011, the Alien Transfer Exit Program affected an estimated one-fifth of migrants detained by Border Patrol along the southwest border. That’s because ATEP ramped up under the Obama administration as a way to handle the spike in Mexican migrants attempting to enter the United States.

…“Under the transfer program, many immigrants who are caught in California are flown to Texas border cities, and the flights return west filled with immigrants caught in Texas. In Arizona, immigrant groups are divided, with some deported through Texas and others through California,” the Los Angeles Times reported at the time.

Federal immigration agencies have long claimed that ATEP “breaks the smuggling cycle by physically separating aliens from the smuggling organizations that will repeatedly attempt to bring guide them into this country,” but the program—called “cruel and unusual punishment” by human rights’ advocates—has separated families.

‘Lateral Repatriation’ Is Family Separation

While ATEP targets Mexican men attempting to enter the United States, the program doesn’t just nab men traveling alone. Men migrating with their families are separated from them, detained, and transported to an unfamiliar place in Mexico, while their partners and children are left to languish in detention centers. In 2011, during the height of ATEP, almost none of the reporting about the program focused on family separation.

The Arizona-based organization No More Deaths refers to ATEP as “lateral repatriation,” noting that the program often separates family members and purposely sends them to cities far from one other. Families aren’t notified of where each member ends up, leaving them unaware of where their partners and children are.

In other words, gentle readers, the House Democrats are a bunch of hypocrites who really do not care about these “poor separated children”.

If they actually did, they would have protested ATEP under Obama.

Just like Obama used children as human political props after the Sandy Hook Massacre and Democratic Activists have been using children in school walkouts to try to achieve the taking away of guns from Americans, their “concern” over the welfare of the children of those who wish to illegally enter our Sovereign Nation is nothing but a political ploy.

It is a plan born out of a Democratic desperation to avoid an Electoral Landslide in the 2020 Presidential Election by somehow damaging President Trump.

I mean, they had to do SOMETHING.

Mueller and his investigators produced nothing but a big fat zero in their attempt to prove that the Russians got Trump elected President.

The Dems’ “Stormy” attempt to re-invent a porn actress into a saint fizzled out.

Their recent debates featuring their Presidential Candidate convinced no voters of the “brilliance”of their relabeling of Marxism as “Democratic Socialism”.

So, they decided to prove that they are the “Party That Cares” by trying to “protect the children” through photo ops of them heading down to the border to show how much they “care”, like the image of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez heartbreakingly looking through a fence at those who are detained wen actually there was nothing but a parking lot on the other side of the fence.

Let’s fact it, gentle readers.

The Democrats still want to “radically change” America and to do that they need to import NEW voters.

Those of us already here have already figured out their game.

Heck, if they actually cared about the welfare of children, they wouldn’t advocate for a million of them to be yanked out of their mothers’ wombs every year in America.

Oh, the irony.

God help us.

Largest Caravan Yet Heading This Way, Organized By Norwegian Refugee Council…What is Going on Here?

tral_america_migrant_caravan.jpg_ga3xtzx_t1200

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1085154110108848128

FoxNews.com reports that

As a new caravan that began in Honduras and quickly swelled to an estimated 2,000 people made its way toward Mexico on Tuesday, Mexicans who live along the border towns that will likely be most affected took to the Internet to lash out against another wave of migrants.

“Work? Yes, there might be work for people who actually want to work, not for the lazy bums looking for entitlements,” said one commenter, with the screen name Azucena Santos, in Spanish on a YouTube page belonging to Shialeweb, who was recording the caravan. “Poor Mexicans, what’s in store for you!”

Juan Palomina remarked: “Now look, let’s see if whacko [Mexican President} Lopez Obrador mobilizes the Marines and keeps these idiots from coming to Mexico. Give them enough to eat, at least.”

…By Tuesday afternoon, a caravan that started with about 500 people grew to about 2,000, according to a representative from the Honduras National Commission of Human Rights, which travels with the caravan.

Word of the caravan’s departure was out at least as far back as last week. The newspaper La Prensa, of Honduras, reported on Jan. 9 that a caravan was scheduled to leave from San Pedro Sula on Tuesday – though the first group left the evening before.

The newspaper attributed the information to the immigration advocacy group “Pueblos Sin Fronteras,” or “Communities Without Borders,” as well as to “Dignificacion Humana,” or “Dignifying Humans.” Both groups said that some 4,000 migrants in all would end up being part of the caravan.

The hostile social media comments on Tuesday are the latest reflection of tensions that have simmered since the caravans began last year. The tension is particularly prevalent in Mexican cities like Tijuana, where many of the migrants are being held in overcrowded shelters.

Some say the concerns by people in receiving communities are, even if pointed, understandable. But others say the migrants deserve compassion for trying to flee conditions – often life-threatening – they did not create, and cannot control.

The mix of exasperated migrants in overtaxed shelters and Mexican residents growing increasingly concerned about strains on communities has led to a number of clashes. In November, for instance, about 300 Tijuana residents held an anti-caravan demonstration at the same time Central American migrants were holding a protest. The dueling demonstrations ended in a huge fight, with police stepping in and escorting the migrants to various shelters.

On its website, the immigrant advocacy group “Consejo Noruego para los Refugiados,” which is based in Colombia and has various offices in Latin America, decried the backlash against the caravan on “growing xenophobia in the U.S., as well as in Mexico.”

“The journey north will be extremely dangerous and taxing for thousands of families from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala that will be part of the trips in 2019,” the group said. “Probably the obstacles will increase along the journey, given that there’s fatigue and frustration in the communities that have until now supported the caravans.”

…Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Honduran authorities arrested and detained Juan Carlos Molina, identified by La Prensa, the Honduran newspaper, as a coordinator of the latest caravan.

Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which supports tighter enforcement, said the departure of another caravan was not surprising, considering indications there are individuals or organizations coordinating them. “Probably there are multiple parties involved, who have an interest in challenging the sovereign right of the United States to determine who can enter the country and under what circumstances,” he said.

“You have opportunists and you have people who, understandably, want to come to the United States,” he said, “It’s a situation that’s getting out of hand, and no one is doing anything about it other than an administration that trying to solve things through executive action.”

“Consejo Noruego para los Refugiados” translates into English as “Norwegian Council for Refugees”, otherwise known as the Norwegian Refugee Council.

Per their website www.nrc.no,

The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. We work in crises in 31 countries, where we help save lives and rebuild futures.

We deliver high-quality aid where needs are greatest. When we started our relief efforts after World War Two, humanitarian needs were critical. They still are – and we’re still there, protecting people forced to flee and supporting them as they build a new future. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across 31 countries, where we provide camp management, food assistance, clean water, shelter, legal aid, and education.

We stand up for people forced to flee. NRC is a determined advocate for displaced people. When we witness injustices, we alert the world. We promote and defend displaced people’s rights and dignity in local communities, with national governments and in the international arena. NRC’s Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva is a global leader in monitoring, reporting on and advocating for people displaced within their own country.

The Fox News article above refers to the NRC’s North Triangle Office, which is based in Columbia.

According to an article found on www.nrc.no, posted by the North Triangle Office,

A new caravan heading towards Mexico and the United States is reportedly set to leave San Pedro Sula in Honduras on Tuesday 15 January. “The large number of people expected to leave Central America is a true testimony to the desperate situation for children, women and men in this poor and violence affected region,” said Secretary General of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), Jan Egeland. “Instead of talking about a crisis at the US-Mexican border, North Americans must wake up and address the real humanitarian crisis in Central America”.

The long walk north will be extremely dangerous and exhausting for the thousands of families from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala that will join the caravans planned in 2019. Obstacles on the way are likely to increase, as there is fatigue and frustration from communities who supported migrants during last year’s exodus. There is rising xenophobia in both the United States (US) and Mexico and increasingly tough border regulations in every country on the way.  

“Border controls, guards or walls will never stop people who are hunted by gang violence and flee for fear for their lives. Youth who have lost all hope for a better future in Central America will try repeatedly to reach a better life in the US, Canada or Mexico. To tackle the current crisis, the more affluent American nations need to understand their own neighborhood and invest much more in bringing hope, security and good governance for people who currently see no other option than to flee”, said Egeland, who visited Honduras in December.    

Well, gentle readers, I guess this answers the question as to “Who is organizing these caravans out of Honduras?”

It is already known that big Democrat Party Donors such as George Soros and Tom Steyer are providing monetary support. With this latest discovery, I would not be surprised if the United Nations is contributing a little “spending cash” to the “migrants” for their long journey to el Norte.

This whole mess keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn’t it?

The only “New World Order” I’ve ever thought was real was the professional wrestling one which featured Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall, back in the days of WCW.

What we seem to have, either intentionally or unintentionally, are Progressives both within and outside our Sovereign Nation attempting to radically change America through the use of “migrant caravans” in an attempt to take advantage of America’s benevolence and largess.

With yesterday’s revelation that the Democrats remain unwilling to enter negotiations with President Trump about the construction of “barriers” along America’s Southern Border, and the facts concerning the Norwegian Refugee Council’s involvement in organizing these caravans, it truly appears that I and others were absolutely correct when we labeled the “migrant caravans” as an INVASION FORCE.

Mr. President…this IS a National Emergency.

BUILD THE WALL.

U.S. and Mexico Agree on Plan to Stop “Migrant Caravans”…Dems Hardest Hit

18-honduras-migrant-caravan.w1200.h630

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1053013864244219904

FoxNews.com reports that

U.S. and Mexican officials have agreed on a plan to handle the approaching migrant caravan making their way up from Central America, a senior administration official told Fox News on Thursday.

Under the deal, which was developed over the course of several months, Mexico will request that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) establish shelters along its southern border with Central America, the official said.

Mexican Ambassador to the U.S. Geronimo Gutierrez elaborated on the request, during an interview on Fox News’ “Special Report.”

“Just today, the Mexican government, and this is a very important step, requested the intervention of the U.N., the Office of the High Commissioner on Refugees, to help Mexico review any asylum claims from the members of the caravan,” Gutierrez said. “That will allow us to have a process by which in our border we will make sure that of serving human rights, respecting international law, if there are legitimate claims to refugee, those can be processed in a very clear way.”

Gutierrez also retweeted a news release Thursday detailing Mexico’s request to the UNHCR.

“We welcome the government of Mexico’s statement that they will seek cooperation with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to address immigration issues in the region, including the influx of people arriving in Mexico,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement. “The United States stands ready to assist the Government of Mexico and UNHCR in this effort.”

If an individual manages to evade the new system and travels through Mexico to eventually cross the border into the U.S., Mexico will now allow those persons to be returned to Mexico, the official told Fox News. Currently, the U.S. has had to house those people until their cases could be adjudicated before being removed to their country of origin.

At the established shelters, U.N. officials will vet the refugees to decide which ones have legitimate claims for refugee status, the official told Fox News.

If a person or persons is determined to have a legitimate claim, they will undergo a U.N. process of being placed in a host country, which could ultimately be the U.S. or any other country that has an agreement with the UNHCR, the official said.

All those discovered without a legitimate claim will be sent home, the official said. And those who don’t have correct documentation will be turned away at the Mexico border.

The plan was agreed on by members of Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto’s government, however President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s incoming administration has vowed not to criticize the plan, the official said. After they take office, they have agreed to work together with the U.S. to attempt to make the plan endure long-term.

Just as he has been effectively dealing with the rest of the problems which his predecessor left him, so has President Trump dealt with the problem of migrants from Central and South America attempting to “storm the gates” of our Sovereign Nation.

I question the timing of this current “migration”.

Gentle readers, do remember when all of these “migrants” began arriving from Central America?

It was the spring and summer of 2014 under the benevolent reign of King Barack The first, when 50,000-100,000 unaccompanied minors made the long arduous journey from Central America across Mexico to our Southern border, where they were graciously welcomed to our Sovereign Nation by President Obama.

Even though a significant number of these “unaccompanied minors” were found to be carrying measles and other childhood diseases which our country had all but eradicated, they were spirited away on military transport planes to bases around the country and were later dispersed among our general population.

With an all important Midterm Election happening on November 6th, this present “migration” has a very bad smell to it…and I’m not talking about the migrants themselves.

Just as there has been copious amounts of money spent by George Soros and other financial backers of the Far Left Democratic Party to disrupt the candidacy and presidency of Donald J. Trump, as the video above shows, I believe that there is a political element to this “migration” which sprang up out of nowhere  as an “October Surprise”.

The Godfather of Conservative Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, agrees with me.

…somebody’s paying for this. Somebody. They have to eat. They have to be drinking things. They’ve gotta be using facilities. Somebody has to be buying the gasoline to transport vehicles, to power the vehicles that are being used here. I guarantee you these people are not walking every step of this thousands-of-miles journey. So who thinks that this caravan arriving within a week, say, of the midterm election date helps Democrats, by itself? How does this help? This is what got Donald Trump elected.

This is what turned on the giant Trump coalition: The invasion at the southern border that neither political party took one step to stop. So what’s the calculation here? Well, we had a caller earlier suggesting that the calculation may well be that there has to be something go wrong. You put 4,000 people on a trek; there’s gotta be somebody get sick. There has to be some fights that break out somewhere. Somebody in this gang of people gotta have a gun.

All it’s gonna take is one little incident of violence, maybe an allegation of sexual abuse, and maybe started by Trump law enforcement personnel. I wouldn’t put it past them if that’s the game plan. But I’m struggling to see, other than just the general chaos it’s creating and maybe the Democrats think that people to want stop this chaos and that this chaos is only because of Trump, that if Trump weren’t there, none of this would be happening, and so let’s get rid of the Republicans.

Just as they did during the Obama Administration and the 2018 Presidential Campaign, the Democrats are greatly underestimating the American People and greatly overestimating their own intelligence.

This is the exact sort of political garbage which led to the election of an American Businessman and Entrepreneur as the 45th President of the United States of America.

If this, indeed, was the Democrats’ big “October Surprise”, so far, it has had all of the impact of a wet firecracker.

Sure, the Main Stream Media will play it up, but average Americans quit listening to them years ago.

The only thing that this new “Migrant Caravan” has accomplished is to get a Senior Administration Official to reveal that our nation and Mexico will work together to stop these and future “migrants” before they even reach our Southern Border.

To paraphrase one of my favorites quotes,

“The best laid plans of mice and men (and Democrats) often go awry.”

Trump Asks Why We’re Letting in So Many People From S—hole Countries. Dems Cry “RAAACIIIST!”…Again.

trump immigration meeting

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/951675713089888256

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump lamented “s—hole countries” during immigration negotiations on Thursday with lawmakers in the Oval Office, Fox News has confirmed.

“Why are we having all these people from s—hole countries come here?” the president said, in comments first reported by The Washington Post.

The president was referring to people from Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras and African countries in the temporary protected status program, a source in the meeting told Fox News.

About a dozen people, both Republicans and Democrats, were in the room at the time, including South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin.

Trump made the comments as Durbin was reading a list of temporary protected status countries.

The president also suggested the United States should admit more people from countries like Norway instead, the Post said. Trump had met with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg and held a news conference with her Wednesday.

In a statement, the White House did not deny Trump made the comments.

“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” said Raj Shah, the principal deputy White House press secretary.

Democrats reacted by accusing the president of racism.

“As an American, I am ashamed of the president,” said Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutiérrez. “His comments are disappointing, unbelievable, but not surprising. We always knew that president Trump doesn’t like people from certain countries or people or certain colors.”

Some Republicans also voiced their disapproval. Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, whose district includes Miami, responded: “Language like that shouldn’t be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn’t be heard in the White House.”

Rep. Mia Love of Utah, whose parents were Haitian immigrants, called on Trump to apologize, saying his comments were “unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values.”

The Trump administration announced Monday that as many as 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants living in the United States will no longer be allowed to stay because they have decided to end their protected status. 

The administration’s decision to end special status for Salvadoran immigrants has emerged as a possible bargaining chip for the president as he works to strike a deal with Congress on immigration.

A bipartisan group of six senators said Thursday afternoon they reached “an agreement in principle” with each other on immigration, including a plan to shield illegal immigrations brought to the United States as children from deportation, though it’s unclear if Trump or others in Congress will go along with it.

“The President will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration – two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country,” Shah said.

Shah added: “Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation. He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway.”

The comments followed a recent report in the New York Times that Trump said the people of Haiti “all have AIDS” and the people from Nigeria would never “go back to their huts” in Africa after receiving visas to enter the United States. But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said at the time that the report was false.

Sanders said senior staffers who were “actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims and it’s both sad and telling the New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous ‘sources’ anyway.”

What is it that makes a geographic area, whether it be an American City or a Foreign Country a “s—hole”?

Is it the color of the skin of the area’s population?

Or rather, it is the decades of poor political leadership, resulting from the avarice and lack of stewardship from those who have either been chosen or who have chosen themselves to be the leader of that area?

For example, the city of Detroit has been labeled a s—hole in the past because of decades of poor Democratic Leadership, which resulted in both businesses and taxpayers leaving the city.

Without a strong economic base, the revenue required to bring stability to an area, including providing for those in the population who can’t or won’t provide for themselves ceases to exist, resulting in an impoverished area unable to pick itself up by its bootstraps in order to be a strong and healthy city…or nation.

When it comes to the countries whom the president referred to as s—holes, it is reasonable that their citizens would want to leave them to make a better life for themselves and their families.

The problem is, as found during the previous Administration, these immigrants are coming to out country and taking advantage of our social programs, without, in many cases, contributing anything to the Sovereign Nation which welcomed them with open arms.

By ending the programs like protected status countries, Visa Lottery, and chain migration, the Trump Administration will be able to make it more difficult for those who have no wish to contribute to our nation, but rather to take advantage of or commit terrorist acts within it, to enter our borders.

Ever since Donald J. Trump announced that he was running for President of the United States of America, Liberals/Progressives/Democrats have attempted to paint him as a racist, oblivious to the fact that not only did he employ Americans of every ethnic background in his corporations, he had never been labeled a racist in his long and distinguished life….until he entered politics.

Unfortunately, this will not be the last time that Democrats attempt to portray the president as being racist.

However, have you noticed that they have not uttered a mumblin’ word about the fact that Black Unemployment in America is down to a record low under President Trump’s leadership?

About this Racism Thing…as Michael Jackson used to sing…perhaps Democrats should start with “The Man in the Mirror”.
