Trump Administration Pulls U.S. Out Of United Nations Global Compact On Migration

Good!

The US has been a part of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants since it was formed last year. The declaration aims to ensure the rights of migrants, help them resettle and provide them with access to education and jobs. ABClocal10

Puts American borders at risk

United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley announced, over the weekend, that the Trump Administration has decided to pull the U.S. out of a non-binding U.N. agreement calling for a global response to the international flow of migrants.

Ambassador Haley made the decision final on Monday.

In a statement released to media over the weekend, Ambassador Haley made it clear that the U.N.’s Global Compact on Migration, while technically non-binding and host to no enforcement clause that would negatively impact the United States if it failed to fulfill its commitment, violated the Trump Administration’s priorities on immigration and put American borders at risk.

“[Our] decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone,” the statement read. “We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country. The global approach in the New York Declaration is simply not compatible with U.S. sovereignty.”

The Compact was, itself, fairly innocuous, at least on its face, calling for “enhance[d] international cooperation in dealing with present and future waves of immigration,” a more global approach to border security, and a promise not to harass child migrants who may not qualify for refugee status. But in practice, the Trump Administration believes it could be used to shame the United States into loosening its immigration laws.

Sources told Foreign Policy that Ambassador Haley was in favor of remaining as a party to the treaty, but Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was not, and the Trump Administration eventually fell on Tillerson’s side.  DailyWire

Dershowitz: Courts Essentially Saying If Obama Issued Same Travel Ban, It Would Be Constitutional

It’s supposed to be about the law and if it is constitutional.

Alan Dershowitz said on Fox News this morning that because court rulings against President Trump‘s travel ban are bringing up his own past rhetoric, the argument is basically, “If Obama had issued the very same order with the same words it would be constitutional, but if Trump issues it it’s unconstitutional.”

This week a federal judge in Hawaii and a district court judge in Maryland both ruled to block the revised travel ban, with the latter saying in his decision, “The history of public statements continues to provide a convincing case that the purpose of the Second Executive Order remains the realization of the long-envisioned Muslim ban.”

Such statements include President Trump’s initial call during the campaign for a “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on” and Rudy Giuliani saying on Fox a few weeks ago that after Trump announced that call, he asked him for the right way to do that legally.

Dershowitz said this morning that rulings based on campaign rhetoric is “not the way the law is supposed to operate.”

He predicted that the Supreme Court would end up upholding the “major provisions of this ban.”

George Soros Network Pushed “Islamophobia” After San Bernardino Islamic Terror Attack

Robert Spencer:  For years I have wondered why every single mainstream media reporter I have ever encountered was completely in the tank for the “Islamophobia” myth, and wholly unconcerned about jihad terrorism. Now we know why: they were bought and paid for. These revelations should bring the whole elite media superstructure tumbling down. It won’t, but every new push brings it closer to collapse.

It is not only the media that is in this Greek chorus chanting all the same thing in unison: “Islamophobia” “Racial profiling”  “War on Women”…

The Loop:  Talking points from White House – Media strategy -Fake public outcry – Government then claims public support for legislation.

It begins with the White House and the Democratic Party. The White House puts out talking points to groups like Media Matters and the Center for American Progress. These groups contact their allies in mainstream media. Media matters and its allies also pay agitators, launch boycotts of businesses., and massive attacks in the media on people, businesses, and organizations that back efforts or people that disagree and oppose the created narrative, they are targeted, isolated, and destroyed.

In the wake of Islamic terrorist attacks in the U.S. and abroad, grantees of George Soros’s Open Society Foundations mobilized to counter anti-refugee and anti-Muslim immigration sentiment while using the attacks to push gun control and advocate against the surveillance of Muslims in major U.S. cities such as New York.

Hacked Foundations memos reviewed by Breitbart Jerusalem betray the symbiotic relationship between Soros’ grantees and prominent politicians, including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in working to push these agendas.

One December 3, 2015 document, titled “Aftermath of ISIS attacks,” outlined a network of grantees that immediately sprung to action pushing specific policy agendas immediately after the December 2, 2015 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

“Anticipating a backlash against Muslims, advocates swung into high gear,” the memo relates.

The grantee actions included attacks on those who spoke against immigration from Islamic countries, a push for gun control, and a speech by Attorney General Lynch at the annual dinner of a grantee, Muslim Advocates.

Here are some actions, as cited in the document:  JihadWatch

Texas To Withdraw From Feds’ Refugee Program Over Terror Concern

refugees2017Texas, one of the few states where elected officials cares about the well being of it’s residents.

Governor Greg Abbot:  “Texas has repeatedly requested that the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Director of National Intelligence provide assurances that refugees resettled in Texas will not pose a security threat, and that the number of refugees resettled in Texas would not exceed the State’s original allocation in fiscal year 2016 – both of which have been denied by the federal government. As a result, Texas will withdraw from the refugee resettlement program. As governor, I will continue to prioritize the safety of all Texans and urge the federal government to overhaul this severely broken system.”

The state of Texas on Wednesday announced that it is withdrawing from the Obama administration’s refugee resettlement program due to the administration’s inability to ensure that refugees resettled in the state do not pose terror threats, according to an announcement by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.

Texas informed the Office of Refugee Resettlement in a letter that it will be withdrawing from the program on Jan. 31, 2017. The letter comes on the heels of several weekend terror attacks across the United States

The administration has refused to approve a security plan by the state of Texas aimed at ensuring that refugees are only resettled following in-depth security checks.

Texas officials drafted a plan that would require federal national security officials to provide assurances that none of the individuals being resettled pose a terror threat. The administration has declined to approve this plan.

Abbott said Texas would not accept a single refuge until proper security measures are put in place.

“The federal government’s refugee settlement program is riddled with serious problems that pose a a threat to our nation,” the governor said in a statement. FreeBeacon

Federal Immigration Officials Working OT To Swear In New Citizens ‘Due To Election’

approved-stampInstead of checking backgrounds or verifying status and eligibility immigration officials are working overtime to rubber stamp and swear in new Democratic voters.   One wonders about the 1,800 people who should have been deported that were given citizenship, “by mistake”.

An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday.

The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the election year.”

“The Field Office due to the election year needs to process as many of their N-400 cases as possible between now and FY 2016,” reads the email, which was disclosed to FoxNews.com by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who chairs the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

“If you have cases in this category or other pending, you are encouraged to take advantage of the OT if you can,” the email continues. “This will be an opportunity to move your pending naturalization cases. If you have not volunteered for OT, please consider and let me know if you are interested.”

Parts of the email were redacted before it was disclosed to FoxNews.com, but it was sent by the branch chief of the Houston Field Office District 17. It was not clear to whom it was addressed.

“I couldn’t have said it better!” reads the July 21 note introducing the forwarded missive. “It’s the end of the year crunch time, so let’s get crunchy! Go Team Houston! Thanks for all your hard work!”

Johnson and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, in a Wednesday letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, said it appears the agency is trying to swear in new citizens as the election between Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton and GOP choice Donald Trump approaches.

“Your department seems intent on approving as many naturalization cases as quickly as possible at a time when it should instead be putting on the brakes and reviewing past adjudications,” the senator’s letter read. FoxNews

800+ Immigrants Mistakenly Granted Citizenship

Update: The numbers of immigrants mistakenly given citizenship are higher than first reported.

More than 1,800 individuals naturalized who should have been deported from the country.

The number of individuals who were supposed to have been deported but were instead granted citizenship is far higher than was initially reported by media covering the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General’s office report on the matter…

A reason for the underplaying of the number may have been the report’s focus, which was whether the US Citizenship and Immigration Services was using digital fingerprints effectively. The Inspector General determined that the agency granted citizenship to 858 individuals who had been ordered deported or removed under another identity but “their digital fingerprint records were not available” during the naturalization process.  CNN

oops

 

 

 

 

Indefensible.  Truly, a mistake or incompetence?

” the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship…their fingerprints were missing from government databases”

Incompetence.  This establishes the  incompetence of the DHS to vet immigrants.

This is the bunch to trust vetting the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees both Obama and Hillary have brought into the U.S. and plan to bring more into the U.S.?

The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud who had pending deportation orders, according to an internal Homeland Security audit released Monday.

The Homeland Security Department’s inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and such discrepancies weren’t caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases.

Wow!

At least three of the immigrants-turned-citizens were able to acquire aviation or transportation worker credentials, granting them access to secure areas in airports or maritime facilities and vessels. Their credentials were revoked after they were identified as having been granted citizenship improperly, Roth said in his report.

A fourth person is now a law enforcement officer.AP

“credentials were revoked” Why was their citizenship not revolved!

George Soros Group Spent $600K To Mainstream Pro-Refugee Attitudes

Soros’ cash to chaos program.

Rape, assault, pillage, plunder and sale illegal drugs; while receiving welfare benefits, free schools,  free medical, free housing  and the right of family reunification and the same welfare benefits for all your relatives.

Leaked documents from left-wing financier George Soros’s Open Society Foundations continue to reveal the extent to which the group has influenced the political response to Europe’s refugee crisis. Internal documents show OSF used $600,000 in reserve funding in March 2016 to bring pro-refugee positions into the “political mainstream.”

Jordi Vaquer, OSF’s regional director for Europe, approved a $600,000 proposal entitled, “Countering the anti-migrant rhetoric and toxic narratives surrounding migration in Europe.”

According to OSF documents, half of the $600,000 would go towards lobbying efforts. All $600,000 came from OSF’s “Europe Reserve Fund.”

A summary of the proposal notes that “the proposed reserve fund allocation will allow for additional resources to be allocated towards countering xenophobic attitudes in Europe, move parts of the political mainstream towards more pro-refugee positions, and build constituencies around a more progressive approach to migration and asylum.” DailyCaller

Leftist Journalist Compares ‘Angel Moms’ To ‘Hate Group’ At Trump Immigration Speech

How twisted is someone to say people who’s children were murdered by illegal aliens is a hate group.

Donald Trump doubled down on his hardline immigration stance during his highly anticipated speech in Phoenix Wednesday, bringing the mothers of Americans murdered by illegal immigrants up on stage to help make his case just weeks before the November election.

But it wasn’t long before these so-called “Angel Moms” were attacked by journalists who likened them to a “hate group.”  theblaze

Soros Aims To Enlarge Electorate By 10 Million Voters By 2018

George Soros
George Soros

Now the reason Soros, Obama, Hillary, and other democrats want an unrelenting stream of migration to the U.S. – democratic voters.  The flux of immigration has been fast-tracked with no concern about the security of Americans.

A top priority of liberal billionaire George Soros is to enlarge the U.S. electorate by 10 million voters by 2018, according to leaked documents.

The plan to grow the electorate by millions of voters was discussed during a May 2014 board meeting of the Open Society Foundations, a liberal grant-making group founded by Soros. A 220-page guide detailing the plan was among more than 2,500 hacked Soros documents released by DC Leaks, which publishes documents from influential officials around the world.

The guide covers strategies and tactics the group will employ in the United States from 2015 to 2018. The top goals listed by the guide are to “advance electoral reform” and “combat suppression.”

“The following four goals form the scaffolding of U.S. Programs’ work,” the guide states. “1. An American democracy strengthened through increased meaningful participation, inclusive practice, and accountability.” The third strategic goal expands upon this, calling for “Full political, economic, and civic participation of immigrants and communities of color by dismantling the barriers and strengthening the conduits to opportunity.”  FreeBeacon

The Case For Immigrant Vetting ‘As American As Apple Pie’

“The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common National sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits.”
-Alexander Hamiltion

immigrationFrom the colonial era,  Alexander Hamilton, Teddy Roosevelt to the 21st century immigrant vetting is American to the core.

As with practically all of Trump’s policy statements, the over-the-top commentary came swiftly…

If all those pundits had bothered to do just a couple of minutes of googling before reacting, they would have discovered that immigrant vetting, and even extreme immigrant vetting, has a very long tradition in American history,” wrote Borjas

Harvard professor George J. Borjas:  So, regardless of what you think about the Trump candidacy, the next time you hear that Trump’s proposal for immigrant vetting is un-American, the correct response is that it is American to its core. And the next time you hear that Trump’s proposal is crazier than crazy, the correct response is that—given the mess the world is in—it is the notion that we should not vet immigrants more carefully that is certifiably insane.

George J. Borjas has been described by both Business Week and the Wall Street Journal as “America’s leading immigration economist”. CIS

Donald Trump Youngstown Speech

Donald Trump Youngstown Speech:  “In the Cold War, we had an ideological screening test. The time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today.

In addition to screening out all members or sympathizers of terrorist groups, we must also screen out any who have hostile attitudes towards our country or its principles – or who believe that Sharia law should supplant American law.

Those who do not believe in our Constitution, or who support bigotry and hatred, will not be admitted for immigration into the country.

Only those who we expect to flourish in our country – and to embrace a tolerant American society – should be issued visas.”

Teddy Roosevelt On Immigration, Muslim Ban And Assimilation

“In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

-Theodore Roosevelt, from a letter he wrote to the president of the American Defense Society in 1919.

A hundred years ago, Muslims were furious over an immigration bill whose origins lay with advocacy by a headstrong and loudmouthed Republican in the White House.

The anti-immigration bill offended the Ottoman Empire, the rotting Caliphate of Islam soon to be defeated at the hands of America and the West, by banning the entry of “all polygamists, or persons who admit their belief in the practice of polygamy.”

This, as was pointed out at the time, would prohibit the entry of the “entire Mohammedan world” into the United States.

And indeed it would.

The battle had begun earlier when President Theodore Roosevelt had declared in his State of the Union address back in 1906 that Congress needed to have the power to “deal radically and efficiently with polygamy.”  The Immigration Act of 1907, signed into law by President Theodore Roosevelt, had banned “polygamists, or persons who admit their belief in the practice of polygamy.” Continue reading “Teddy Roosevelt On Immigration, Muslim Ban And Assimilation”

George Soros Think-tank Aims To Use Migrant Crisis To Influence Immigration Policies Worldwide

George Soros

Leaked memos shows George Soros funded Open Society Foundations saying “that the refugee crisis is an ‘opportunity’ for influence.”

There is always more money to be made in turmoil.

Left-wing billionaire financier George Soros recently accused Angela Merkel of bringing ‘chaos’ to Europe through her open-door immigration policy.

But it’s emerged through leaked documents that his think-tank Open Society Foundations (OSF) sees Europe’s refugee crisis as an opportunity – a chance to influence immigration policies worldwide and collaborate with other wealthy donors.

In a memo called ‘Migration Governance and Enforcement Portfolio Review’, OSF states that the immigration crisis in Europe is the ‘new normal’.

It has ‘created space to reconsider the governance of migration and the international refugee regime’.

It presents, the Foundation argues, ‘new opportunities for reforming migration governance at the global level, whether through the existing multi-lateral system, or by bringing together a range of actors to think more innovatively’.

The Foundation says that its ‘investment in global work’ means that it has the ‘right partners’ and is in a position to ‘help others navigate this space’.

The memo adds that ‘the refugee crisis is opening new opportunities… for coordination and collaboration’ with other rich organisations.

It was only recently that Soros, who ‘broke the Bank of England’ in 1992, said that the German Chancellor’s decision to ‘open her country’s doors wide to refugees’ was ‘not properly thought out’.  DailyMail
