The Coming Year-End Immigration Disaster

Until the Democrat and Republican establishments are voted out of office DACA and other programs to benefit illegal aliens will never be stopped and legislation by year-end train wreck will continue to be their preferred vehicle for forcing these policies on an increasingly resistant public.

Why Does President Trump Keep Hiring Anti-Trumpers?

Kirstjen Nielsen, the nominee to replace Gen. Kelly as DHS secretary, doesn’t seem very promising, given her pedigree as a Jeb Bush donor and her lack of experience in, and commitment to, the conservative policy outcomes President Trump promised on immigration and the rest of the Department of Homeland Security mission.

Each Traditional-Nationalist Movement Has Common Cause

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Europe is rejecting, resisting, recoiling from “diversity,” the multiracial, multicultural, multiethnic and multilingual future that, say U.S. elites, is America’s preordained mission to bring about for all mankind. Indeed, increasingly, the indigenous peoples of Europe seem to view as the death of their nations and continent, what U.S. liberal elites see as the Brave New World to come. To traditionalist Europeans, our heaven looks like their hell.

Trump echoes Tom Cotton as immigration position questions mount

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Trump has strongly signaled that he would like Congress to legalize those protected from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. But he has also been echoing Cotton's arguments against "chain migration" — the process by which one group of immigrants sponsors foreign relatives to enter the United States. Cotton has suggested pairing DACA with his RAISE Act, a proposal to limit family reunification, create a point system for employment-based immigration and cut the number of green cards issued overall.

NumbersUSA POLL: Most voters want refugee numbers cut to 25,000 or less

More than half of likely 2018 congressional voters preferred the United States admit 25,000 or fewer "refugees," with 39% preferring to admit no "refugees" with the US instead assisting refugees in safe zones close to their home countries.

President Trump’s Arizona Speech Drives Left Nuts

Trump’s Phoenix speech was good mostly because Trump showed he could still be Trump, and that he wasn’t going to be cowed into abandoning his base – and because along the way he delivered an epic put down to the national media’s Charlottesville narrative.

Democrats, some Republicans slam new Trump-backed immigration bill. But voters like it.

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The Cotton-Perdue bill has, of course, been slammed by Democrats, but it has also been criticized by the Republicans who wrote the Senate Gang of Eight bill in 2013, the last (unsuccessful) effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Such opinions track those of many Democrats. But if the new poll is correct -- and it is in line with similar surveys going back years -- the bill's authors have the voters on their side.

Immigration: How Trump Derangement Syndrome Dumbs Down the Press

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

There are clearly pros and cons to the Trump Administration's immigration arguments, but the press refuse to engage in a similarly adult manner on this significant issue that has not been seriously discussed in decades.  They only attacked. And the attacks were almost as brainless as CNN Jim Acosta's, sometimes more. That's what happens where you're governed by rage and self-centeredness.

Two wins for Trump

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

The Supreme Court’s two rulings mark a welcome setback to the open borders crowd and those secular progressives who view the expression of any religious view in the public square the way a vampire views a cross. It has been a curiosity of mine that some people believe using God’s name as a curse word is speech protected by the Constitution, while claiming the opposite when it comes to speaking well of the Deity at a commencement ceremony.

A Renewed MS-13 — Courtesy of Obama’s Lax Immigration Policies

Mark Krikorian, National Review

Obama’s fecklessness has created an MS-13 crime wave from the Long Island, N.Y., communities of Brentwood and Central Islip to Santa Maria, Calif., and in the many other communities in between where Central American teenagers were shipped. The lesson: The Obama approach of enforcing immigration law only against illegal aliens who have been convicted of violent crimes is a recipe for disaster.

The Perfect Man – You Know Him When You See Him

It is interesting to note that while the billboards don’t mention Islam or Mohammed, the Muslim community knew exactly who it was referring to.  The truth is a powerful weapon, and Truthophobia -- fear of the truth -- is getting a lot of people killed.

Was Rep. Clay Higgins Right About Islam's War Against America?

Louisiana's Congressman Clay Higgins started a firestorm amongst the politically correct establishment when he posted on Facebook "The free world... all of Christendom... is at war with Islamic horror. Not one penny of American treasure should be granted to any nation who harbors these heathen animals. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter..."

President Ryan Takes Over

The spending bill Paul Ryan is about to ram through Congress shows that despite Donald Trump’s historic election win it is Speaker Paul Ryan who is really running the show in Washington, and President Ryan has no intention of fulfilling candidate Donald Trump’s campaign promises.

Opening Our Borders Would Overwhelm America

Dave Seminara, Wall Street Journal

If the U.S. loosened visa restrictions or expanded the sanctuary-city concept to the national level, particularly with no similar moves from any of the world’s other rich nations, we’d see the largest mass movement in human history. It would be an epic economic and environmental catastrophe. And yet in the current political climate, it’s hard to find anyone outside the Trump wing of the Republican Party willing to articulate the need for enforcement.

With Flynn Out Islamist Sympathizers In At Trump White House?

Mike Flynn was clear-eyed about the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty and America’s Judeo-Christian culture. Whoever conned President Trump into saying that he thought Islam has been “kidnapped by radical groups” did so by failing to tell him that he was meeting with a representative of one of the chief kidnappers – the Wahhabis of the Saudi royal family.

Facebook Labels ConservativeHQ “Malicious” Blocks Pro-Trump Content

Right before the election Facebook began to block CHQ content. In responses that sounded like they were written by Lois Lerner, we were assured that the problem had nothing to do with ConservativeHQ’s name or the conservative content of our articles, but the problem has continued to grow and now Facebook has labeled CHQ a "malicious" website.

Trump's better order — and the border

Editors, Washington Examiner

The simple step of announcing and explaining the order was a big, necessary step. The order is more detailed and it contains a thorough legal justification, and the administration also released a fact sheet helping to clarify it yet further. The Cabinet secretaries on Monday laid out the framework and some of the reasoning.
