MY CORNER by Boyd Cathey
Immigration and Voting, Islamic Terror, and the Marxist Effort to Transform America
Several bits of news came together this morning, and, so, we return to the topic of immigration. First, there is the report of a government border agent brutally murdered along the border with Mexico. The particulars are not yet known, but the fact is that he was killed in a most horrendous manner that may well indicate Mexican gang or drug cartel involvement. You will hear very little about the circumstances or responsibility on CNN or MSNBC.
A few days ago, on Monday, November 20, the United States Federal District Court of Northern California struck down the president’s Executive Order withholding federal funds from sanctuary cities (http://www.jurist.org/paperchase/2017/11/federal-judge-strikes-down-executive-order-to-withhold-funding-from-sanctuary-cities.php). And back in late October an Obama-appointed judge in Hawaii struck down, for the third time, President Trump’s latest travel ban for specifically-named countries. (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/10/17/federal-judge-hawaii-strikes-down-trumps-third-travel-ban/773074001/ ) That is, he struck down a ban aimed at countries where rampant Islamic terror and instability demonstrate the incapacity of those countries to control their domestic affairs and prevent potential terrorists from traveling to the United States.
Add to this the attempt by Democrats and Open Border advocates to sabotage the appointed Presidential Advisory Commission of Electoral Integrity (PACEI). The commission’s requests that states turn over election data have been met by refusals from states dominated by the political Left (e.g., California, Illinois). And Open Borders activist Ari Berman, has ominously warned on National Public Radio (where else?!) that the commission’s work to eliminate illegal voting, “could have a chilling effect on voting rights.” (https://www.npr.org/2017/05/17/528769195/trumps-election-integrity-commission-could-have-a-chilling-effect-on-voting-righ)
Got that? Eliminating illegal voters from the rolls could have a “chilling effect.” Or, in other words, halting illegal voting might inhibit the Left from using hundreds of thousands—potentially millions—of illegal immigrants, dead people and outright fraud a la Chicago under the late Mayor Daley, to win elections and further the cultural Marxist effort to transform the American political and cultural landscape by whatever means, legal or not.
Among Republicans we behold the nauseating specter of far too many GOP solons in Washington who with a wink-and-a-nod give succor to those who would keep our national borders a leaky sieve that enables not only millions of illegals to cross, but also implicitly reinforce ongoing radical change in the nation not just economically, but culturally. Of course, their actual concern is essentially to keep their international corporate supporters happy and a steady supply of cheap immigrant workers coming into the United States. Whatever feigned distress they express at the illegality and long range political and cultural results involved is more than overshadowed by their absolute fealty to their financial cash cows.
In addition to Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham, and Marco Rubio, among the newer and more notable additions to this gang of “culture traitors” is North Carolina’s junior United States Senator Thom Tillis. Tillis is pushing what he calls a “compromise” “bipartisan” immigration bill that would give “Dreamers” a path to citizenship and essentially open the borders of the United States to millions of additional immigrants by chain migration (of course, he denies that, but the import of his proposed legislation in the United State Senate would permit exactly that). (https://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/10/senate-dreamers-immigration-tillis-243628)
Tillis has a long career of supporting essentially open borders that began when he was Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, and he was known to immigration patriots in the Tar Heel State as the “Speaker of the Chamber of Commerce” and a shill for big corporate agri-business interests who stoutly opposed restricting immigration, lest their supply of cheap unregulated labor be diminished. About his proposal, Tillis is quoted by POLITICO that “when you sit down and you talk with left-of-center, reasonable Democrats … then we have people that are having a difficult time opposing it [my bill].” (Italics added)
The cited POLITICO article comments:
“Tillis has emerged as a classic pro-business Republican when it comes to immigration: He believes more workers from abroad help the economy and that there are jobs Americans simply won’t do. He is open to a pathway to citizenship for the broader population of 11 million undocumented immigrants [….]
“Tillis has made himself the ninth member of the Gang of Eight,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, referring to senators who negotiated a comprehensive immigration bill in 2013. “He is trying to make himself a player, but it’s really just putting a Republican gloss on a Democratic policy.”
Running for president, Donald Trump made halting illegal immigration and constructing a “big, beautiful border wall,” centerpieces of his campaign. Since his inauguration he has encountered one road-block after another, and not just from the usual suspects on the far Left—the Chuck Schumers and Nancy Pelosis in Congress and the Mainstream Media—but from Republican legislators like Thom Tillis, who even went so far as to hold up President Trump’s nomination of Lee Francis Cissna to head the US Citizenship and Immigration Services administration until he could get a speeded-up review of additional H-2B visas.
This, then, is the face of the opposition to this country gaining real and substantial control of its borders…indeed, of its very future as a nation. Not just the hard left--It is Republican senators like Thom Tillis, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, John McCain, Orrin Hatch, and James Lankford (Oklahoma) who epitomize the swamp “creatures from the black lagoon” who, through their actions and collaboration and subservience to the Deep State, enable the growth and dominance of the malevolent Progressivist incubus and the eventual and certain demise of the old Republic.
They must be turned out of office, soundly rejected and defeated, for the sake of our republic and for the future of our children.
