How do you undermine America’s long held motto, “E Pluribus Unum,” while systematically destroying America’s sovereignty? One illegal alien at a time.
I believe illegal immigrants are more likely to reject assimilating into American culture and embrace democratic class-warfare – a strategy designed by the left to keep a permanent underclass voting bloc that will remain dependent upon some form of welfare. For this reason, I give kudos to President Trump for signing his latest executive order that will require migrants to apply for asylum at our legal ports of entry. This is important so that we know who’s coming into our country and why and whether they qualify for entry at all.
As it stands now, there are only 5 reasons to grant asylum to migrants that can prove they have suffered persecution or can prove a legitimate fear that they will suffer persecution in their home country, according to our U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (uscis.gov). Those reasons are: 1) race, 2) religion, 3) nationality, 4) membership in a particular social group, and 5) political opinion. In other words, those seeking to come to America for jobs need not apply.
However, as much as I appreciate Trump’s executive order on asylum, for the sake of blacks and other racial minorities, as well as preserving America’s middle-class, it’s time for Donald Trump and the Republican party to put an end to “birthright citizenship,” as leftists wrongfully interpret it today.
There’s been a lot of controversy about what the framers of the 14th Amendment intended when they wrote “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof…” There shouldn’t be. In context, the 14th Amendment is complimentary to the 13th Amendment that freed African slaves in America, and the 15th Amendment which gave former slaves the right to vote. Leftists wrongfully, and I contend purposefully, cite the Supreme Court case of 1898, the Wong Kim Ark decision as their reason for supporting birthright citizenship. However, this case had nothing to do with birthright citizenship at all! In fact, the case granted citizenship to all children of “legal immigrants,” as Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review wrote about in his column “The Originalist Case Against Birthright Citizenship.”
Here are ways President Trump and republicans can make immigration an issue for 2020, without losing their base and even capturing some independent voters.
First, republicans must argue that illegal aliens don’t have the right to piggy-back off the pain and suffering of freed African slaves that were brought to America by force after being sold into slavery by fellow Africans, as compared to those who have willfully broken our immigration laws by entering the country illegally. This will endear them to black voters who may be ready to abandon the democratic party and may not have been open to the republican party before.
Secondly, clarifying the original intent of the 14th Amendment would disincentivize illegal immigration and help us to expedite “legal immigration.” This is the right thing to do for the immigrants who have been pushed to the back of the line by illegal aliens while they’ve waited patiently for the privilege to call themselves an American. There’s nothing the left fears more than blacks abandoning the democratic party and immigrants who embrace American nationalism over socialism.
Lastly, the financial burden that’s placed upon taxpayers would be better served paying down our national debt and securing Medicare and Medicaid entitlements for our most vulnerable citizens who legitimately need the programs.
Additionally, why should low-skilled and middleclass Americans alike have to compete for jobs against illegal immigrants who will drive down our wages? Leftist athletes and entertainers like Lebron James and the women of “The View” that pontificate on the subject will never be financially impacted by illegal immigration. You and I will.
I live in Orlando, Florida. It’s one of America’s most ethnically diverse cities. Do the proponents of birthright citizenship seriously expect me to believe that if a British tourist, who happens to be female, white and pregnant, were to visit Disney World and give birth while here on vacation, that her child would automatically qualify for U.S. citizenship? Of course not.
The left is interested in “importing” new democratic voters from poor countries that will perpetually keep them in power because they’re dependent on government welfare. That means job security for the power hungry in D.C. It’s as simple as that.
Carl attempted to find his way as the youngest of six who were lost without the strength of their matriarch. He moved back and forth between LA and Orlando, FL trying to find his way in life.
With the help of family and friends he was introduced to hard work, faith and family values. However, as a struggling teen he wandered down the path of least resistance, finding himself in jail twice and with a child he had to fight to raise.
By the grace of God and insistence by his brother and friend he attended an Evangelical church and found that there was a better way. Once he accepted Jesus Christ as his savior he began to develop a greater desire to understand who God is and why it mattered.
He began to see that the cultural dependence on government promoted by the Democrat leaders among his community rejected dependence upon God.
As he studied America’s history he discovered that despite America’s flaws, particularly slavery, God used our Founding Fathers to create our Constitution within the context of the Bible and world history. It’s divine and exceptional nature is undeniable.
It was during his newfound love for American history that he discovered the Democrat party perpetuated slavery, formed the KKK, and fought against the civil rights of minorities.
With this hidden history Carl was launched on a journey to help people of all races and backgrounds discover facts of history as well as realize the benefits of utilizing their God-given gifts and talents far outweigh any benefit from a government subsidy.
