Pelosi Says Congress Has ‘a Duty and an Obligation’ to Let DREAMers Stay

(CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told the House Rules Committee today that Congress has a “duty” to protect the “DREAMers” by taking action to allow them to stay in the United States.
“Congress has a duty and an obligation to protect these DREAMers--the committee should take this opportunity and take the bipartisan DREAM Act a vote on the floor,” Pelosi said.

Are all DREAMers Students and Soldiers?

Advocates for legalizing the children of illegal aliens try to make the case that most DREAMers are worthy of amnesty. Many are students or members of the military who deserve a chance to succeed in America.
This may be true. But the demographic reality is far different than the media would have us believe. And that reality points to assimilation problems with DREAMers that is rarely discussed.

Are all DREAMers Students and Soldiers?

Advocates for legalizing the children of illegal aliens try to make the case that most DREAMers are worthy of amnesty. Many are students or members of the military who deserve a chance to succeed in America.
This may be true. But the demographic reality is far different than the media would have us believe. And that reality points to assimilation problems with DREAMers that is rarely discussed.
Watching television reports concerning Dreamers, one would think that the DACA program applied only to college-educated immigrants who were just a few years old when their parents brought them into the country illegally. We are led to believe that most are so fully Americanized that they would now have trouble speaking their native language and are all but ignorant of their birth countries’ cultural norms. Thus, we are supposed to believe, returning them to their native lands would be a cruel hardship.
In fact, many DACA beneficiaries came here as teenagers. All were eligible for the program as long as they entered the U.S. before their 16th birthday. By that time, there is no doubt that they spoke the language of their native countries fluently and knew their culture intimately.
DACA had no requirement of English fluency, as evidenced by the application form that had a space to list the translator used to complete the form. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that “perhaps 24 percent of the DACA-eligible population fall into the functionally illiterate category and another 46 percent have only ‘basic’ English ability.”
Unfortunately, many Dreamers are poorly educated. Only 49 percent of DACA beneficiaries have a high school education, even though a majority are now adults. And while military service could also qualify an illegal alien for DACA, out of the current 690,000 DACA beneficiaries, only 900 are serving in the military.
The Obama administration did not check the background of each DACA beneficiary, despite a requirement that they have no felony convictions and pose no threat to national security. Only a few randomly selected DACA applicants were ever actually vetted.
This may explain why, by August this year, more than 2,100 DACA beneficiaries had had their eligibility pulled because of criminal convictions and gang affiliation. Even if a random background investigation produced substantial evidence that an illegal alien might have committed multiple crimes, the alien would still be eligible for DACA if he wasn’t convicted.
Thus, it seems that a significant percentage of DACA beneficiaries have serious limitations in their education, work experience and English fluency. What’s the likelihood that they’ll be able to function in American society without being substantial burdens to U.S. taxpayers?
A minimum requirement for illegal immigrants to be made legal should be an ability to support oneself. That so many cannot master the English language should give Congress pause when considering allowing millions of nearly illiterate, non-English speaking DREAMers to remain in the US with their illegal parents. Not every DREAMer can work at a company where most employees speak Spanish. The English requirement should be non-negotiable or we will end up with another permanent underclass, wholly dependent on the government to live.
This is a situation that calls for examining each case on an individual basis rather than granting mass amnesty to a class of illegal immigrant. Criminals, illiterates, and Spanish-only speaking DREAMers need to be excluded from any consideration for being granted legal status. Otherwise, we literally open the door to more illegal immigration.

Politicians supporting widespread amnesty for illegal aliens, said Coulter, were motivated by either “corruption or stupidity” in their pursuit to “destroy our country.

Ann Coulter: ‘Let’s Start by Deporting the DREAMers!’

“Let’s start by deporting the DREAMers,” quipped Ann Coulter in a Monday-aired interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Dailywith Breitbart News’s Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow.

The status quo of demographic change wrought by immigration — both lawful and unlawful — must change in order to “save the country,” said Coulter.
Describing DREAMers — those targeted by the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy and subsequently proposed bills seeking to codify it as federal law — as “the most annoying people in the universe,” Coulter jestingly recommended prioritizing the most obnoxious cohort of illegal immigrants for deportation:
It has to be said that many of the legal and illegal low-wage workers, they’re incredibly hard workers, they’re really nice people, and it occurred to me … that I actually like all of the illegal immigrants except the DREAMers. They’re the ones I want deported first because they’re the activists. They’re the obnoxious ones. They’re the ones who go to congressional offices and stamp their feet and say, “How dare you not rush to grant us amnesty?” Whereas the other illegals don’t have the time to be protesting; they’re busy working, being polite, being so friendly and nice and saying, “Merry Christmas.”
No. Let’s start by deporting the DREAMers. That’s point one.
Without border security to halt the flow of foreigners illegally immigrating to America and deportations of swathes of foreigners illegally in the homeland, it is “lights out for America,” added Coulter.
“Unless [DREAMers] are not deported, they’re all becoming citizens,” warned Coulter.
“Widespread, unchecked, unfettered immigration,” said Marlow, is an existential threat to the continuity of American values.
Previous efforts to amnesty illegal immigrants — such as the Gang of Eight bill supported by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) — amounted to “kill America” endeavors, said Coulter. Such amnesty proposals are regularly marketed by their proponents under the guise of “comprehensive immigration reform.”
Any legislated amnesty will necessarily extend beyond limiting parameters promised by its supporters, said Coulter, pointing to the broadening of previous amnesties beyond originally stated limits via judicial rulings.
Birthright citizenship must also end, agreed both Coulter and Marlow. Automatic extension of citizenship to “anchor babies,” said Coulter, is “crazy” and “insane.” Existing policy is exploited by a “birth tourism,” in which pregnant foreigners time visits to the U.S. to coincide with their expected due dates.
Demographic change is an existential issue trumping all other challenges, said both Coulter and Marlow.
“All of it is moot if we don’t and end the DACA amnesty talk and if we don’t get the wall up,” said Marlow. “If that doesn’t happen, by the time we get to the polls next November, literally, the country will be on a precipice.”
The absence of a southern border wall will render recent political achievements — such as lessening burdensome federal regulations and taxes, the appointment of quality jurists to the judiciary, killing ISIS terrorists, and deciding to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and undermining popular trust in left-wing news media outlets — naught, said Marlow:
All these wonderful achievements by this president, it’s not going to make a dime’s worth of difference, because not only are we setting our society on a path where we’re just legalizing undocumented Democrats, but we’re not gonna win any elections because we don’t keep our biggest promises. I really do think this is a do-or-die thing, and we’re a year in, and so far, it’s die.
“All of these victories are going to be Pyrrhic victories if we live in a country where no Republican can be elected president ever again,” concurred Coulter, framing to political and partisan shifts associated with the status quo of demographic change.
Politicians supporting widespread amnesty for illegal aliens, said Coulter, were motivated by either “corruption or stupidity” in their pursuit to “destroy our country.”
Demographic change is broadly hidden from the public by both politicians and the news media, said Coulter, while less pertinent issues are given undue focus. Proponents of preserving and/or accelerating the rate of demographic change via both legal and illegal immigration, she said, know they cannot win popular support for their positions on the battlefield of ideas:
By and large, the Third World immigration advocates, they know their best bet is — don’t let anybody talk about it, don’t let anybody think about it, we don’t want people opening the newspaper and saying, “Hmm, where’s the article on immigration?” We just don’t want it even entering their minds — that’s their approach.
“Every time you allow Americans to vote [on issues relating to immigration], every time it’s on the ballot … they vote for less immigration [and] fewer benefits for immigrants,” said Coulter, highlighting popular opposition to the status quo of both legal and illegal immigration.
Coulter rejected left-wing narratives of ethnic “diversity” as a social asset, drawing on comments made by the late Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew: “The more multi-ethnic a society becomes, people stop voting on their social interests, their economic interests; they vote on their ethnic group and I think that’s what the Democrats are counting on.”

Idaho Is Fastest-Growing State in U.S.

Charlie Litchfield/AP

by JOHN BINDER21 Dec 2017Washington, D.C.609

Idaho has the fastest-growing population in the United States, according to newly released data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Over the last year, the Census Bureau concludes, Idaho’s population increased by 2.2 percent, with now 1.7 million residents living in the state that has one of the most racially homogeneous makeups.

Chief of the Population Estimates Branch Luke Rogers said in a statement that domestic migration of Americans is the reason behind Idaho’s population growth between July 2016 and July 2017.

“Domestic migration drove change in the two fastest-growing states, Idaho and Nevada, while an excess of births over deaths played a major part in the growth of the third fastest-growing state, Utah,” Rogers said.

The U.S. Census Bureau found that net international migration to the U.S. has continued growing the country’s population –with 1.1 million foreign nationals being admitted over the last year – with the overall U.S. population growing by 2.3 million individuals.

Every year, 1.5 million foreign nationals arrive in the U.S. The foreign-born population, most recently, has reached historic levels, with now more than 44 million immigrants residing in the country, as Breitbart News reported.


Mexico has the largest group of legal and illegal foreign nationals in the U.S., with 1.1 million immigrants from the country arriving in the U.S. between 2010 and 2016. Mexican nationals make up roughly one in eight new arrivals to the U.S.

The largest increases from 2015 to 2016 to immigration to the U.S. have come from the Middle East, the Carribean, Central America, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The booming foreign-born population is largely due to family-based chain migration, which was established by the 1965 immigration legislation allowing new arrivals to the U.S. to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives with them.

Study: Immigrant Population in U.S. Booms to 44M, Majority from Mexico

by JOHN BINDER3 Nov 2017Washington, D.C.1,028

WASHINGTON, D.C. — There is now a record level of immigrants living in the United States – standing at roughly 44 million people nationwide – who entered the U.S. both  illegally and legally from a foreign country.

Research conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Steven Camarota reveals the massive scope of the U.S. immigrant population, which has contributed to keeping American wages stagnant while driving up costs of social services.
Camarota’s research reveals that in 2016, there were between 43 and 45 million immigrants in the U.S.,  nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000.
Mexico, as noted by Camarota, has the largest group of legal and illegal foreign nationals in the U.S., with 1.1 million immigrants from the country arriving in the U.S. between 2010 and 2016. Mexican nationals make up roughly one in eight new arrivals to the U.S.
Legal and illegal immigrants now make up close to 14 percent of the entire U.S. population, or roughly one out of every eight American residents. Camarota says this is the largest percentage in 106 years.
The largest increases from 2015 to 2016 to immigration to the U.S. have come from the Middle East, the Carribean, Central America, and Sub-Saharan Africa.
The booming foreign-born population is largely due to family-based chain migration, which was established by the 1965 immigration legislation allowing new arrivals to the U.S. to bring their foreign family members, spouses, children, and extended family to the U.S.
For instance, as Breitbart News has reported, on average, for every new legal immigrant from Mexico, the immigrant brings six relatives to the U.S. years later when they obtain U.S. citizenship.
President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, most recently, have called for an end to chain migration, slamming it for its negative impact on American workers and the country’s working-class, who are often forced to compete with new arrivals for blue-collar jobs.
“A merit-based system, by definition, would be safer than a lottery or even extended family-based immigration,” Sessions said during a speech in New York City, New York.  “We want the best and the brightest in America.  The President’s plan is essential to protecting our national security, while also banning drunk drivers, fraudsters, gang members, and child abusers.”
Harvard University economist George Borjas, an immigration expert, recently said the current family-based chain migration system is “really hard to justify as a rational immigration policy.”

CBO Says Senate DREAM Act Would Cost Taxpayers Billions

Friday afternoon bomb
By Andrew R. Arthur
CIS Immigration Blog, December 18, 2017

With respect to direct spending, CBO finds that S. 1615 would increase earned income and child tax credits by $5.5 billion between 2018 and 2027. It finds that the bill would increase spending for Medicaid by $5.0 billion during that period, and would increase direct spending for SNAP benefits by $2.3 billion in that timeframe. Direct spending for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits would increase by $900 million during that 10-year period under the bill. Finally, the bill would increase Social Security spending (which is off-budget) by $600 million, and Medicare spending by $300 million between 2018 and 2027. Federal direct spending for assistance for higher education would also increase, by $500 million in that timeframe under the bill, CBO estimates. Most significantly, however, "CBO and JCT estimate that enacting S. 1615 would increase outlays for subsidies for health insurance purchased through the marketplaces by $11.8 billion over the 2018-2027 period."

In reaching the $0.9 billion revenue increase figure, CBO assumes that more employees would work "on the books", and therefore report their income, increasing revenue, "mostly in the form of Social Security taxes, which are categorized as off-budget." It finds, however, that "increased reporting of employment income would result in increases in tax deductions by businesses. ... As a result, corporations would report lower taxable profits and pay less in income taxes." In addition: "Noncorporate businesses, such as partnerships and sole proprietorships, also would report lower taxable income, which would decrease individual income taxes paid by the partners and owners."

CBO: Young Illegal Immigrants Have Expensive Dreams

By Jason Richwine

CIS Immigration Blog, December 18, 2017

For most Americans, a Friday afternoon in mid-December is a time when work is winding down and holiday plans begin to take center stage. It also seems to be a time, coincidentally or not, for the government to publish reports that run counter to prevailing media narratives. Keeping with tradition, the CBO reported on Friday that the DREAM Act, which would provide amnesty to up to three million illegal immigrants who arrived before the age of 18, would generate a net cost of $26 billion over the next 10 years. Because advocates claim that virtually any loosening of immigration restrictions will benefit taxpayers — even refugees, despite their low earnings and high welfare consumption, are said to be fiscal boons — and because the media have been eager to run with that narrative, the CBO's estimate may come as a surprise.

In truth, however, it's hard to see how the analysis could have come out the other way. Young illegal immigrants — some of whom already have work permits, due to the Obama Administration's DACA program — currently pay most taxes, but cannot receive most federal benefits. Legalization is therefore bound to be costly. Furthermore, as a generally lower-skill population, DREAM Act beneficiaries will use more government services than average. The CBO estimates that the DREAM Act would generate about $1 billion of extra tax revenue from ending "off-the-books" labor, but that gain is swamped by $27 billion in new spending on benefits. The most expensive benefit enjoyed by Dream Act recipients would be Obamacare subsidies ($12 billion), followed by the earned income and child tax credits ($5.5 billion), Medicaid ($5 billion), and food stamps ($2 billion).

‘Dream Act’ Is Taxpayers’ Nightmare

By Bob Dane

ImmigrationReform.com, December 19, 2017
. . .
S. 1615 would expand America’s welfare state by making up to 2 million deportable aliens eligible for a host of federal benefits — health insurance subsidies, child tax credits, Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (a.k.a. food stamps) and higher education assistance, among others.

CBO estimates the bill, introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., would increase the federal budget deficit by $26 billion over the next decade.

The DREAM Act doubles down on a U.S. immigration system that’s out of control, literally. President Donald Trump summed up the problem over the weekend.

“Our current immigration system helps special interests, but hurts American workers, taxpayers and national security,” Trump said in his weekly radio address.

FAIR calls the DREAM Act a prime example of dysfunction on Capitol Hill.

Amnesty for the 'Best and Brightest' Will Still Cost Taxpayers 

By Ira Mehlman

TheHill.com, December 20, 2017
. . .
What the CBO found was not encouraging for proponents of the DREAM Act and downright disastrous to their broader goal of obtaining amnesty for an estimated 12-15 million people living illegally in the United States. Beneficiaries of the DREAM Act are described glowingly by their advocates and many in the media as the best and brightest who, if their full potential could be tapped, would enrich the nation and its treasury.

Not really.

According the CBO’s analysis, granting amnesty to the “best and the brightest” of the illegal alien population would represent an additional expense to the taxpayers who are already bearing a $135 billion annual burden as a result of large-scale illegal immigration. Rather than enriching our country, the CBO concluded that enactment of the DREAM Act would add nearly $27 billion to the deficit over the first decade, based on an assumption that just two million people would gain amnesty under the legislation.

Chain Migration and DACA: An Explainer

By Theresa Cardinal Brown

Bipartisan Policy Center, December 15, 2017

How many individuals could DREAMers sponsor for green cards under DREAMer Legislation?

The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) estimates that DREAMers could sponsor an average of 0.65 to 1.03 family members under the parameters set by the Recognizing America’s Children (RAC) Act, the 2017 DREAM Act, the Hope Act, the SUCCEED Act, and the Border Security and Deferred Action Recipient Relief Act. While other organizations have made claims that these individuals would sponsor as many as six family members, these analyses assume that DREAMers are similar to other green card holders, but DREAMers are less likely to have non-U.S. family members than other immigrants.

First, MPI notes that DREAMers arrived in the United States as children, making it less likely that they would have children living outside the United States to be sponsored; their children would more likely be born in the United States, making them U.S. citizens. Because DREAMers grew up in the United States, it is also more likely that those who are married met their spouses in the United States, and that their spouses are U.S. citizens, green card holders, or fellow DREAMers. The undocumented parents of DREAMers may also have other U.S.-born citizen children who could sponsor them once they turn 21, meaning that the parent, if they were eligible, might be sponsored by someone other than the DREAMer. The most likely family members for DREAMers to sponsor would be siblings who reside out of the country–a category that has extremely large backlogs and decades-long wait times, especially for Mexico, where the most DREAMers are from. In short, demographic profiles of this population would likely lead them to sponsor fewer family members over time.

Will DREAMers Crowd U.S.-Born Millennials Out of Jobs?

By Jeanne Batalova and Michael Fix

Migration Policy Institute, December 2017

The sectoral distribution of employed DACA recipients differs in significant ways from the millennial workforce in general, and White, Black, Asian, and U.S.-born Hispanic workers, in particular. These differentiated employment patterns likely reduce direct competition.

For example, DACA recipients were more likely than millennials overall to work in hospitality (23 percent versus 16 percent) and construction (11 percent versus 6 percent). Shares of Blacks, Asians, U.S.-born Hispanics, and Whites were all lower than the share of DACA workers in these industries (see Figure 2).

DACA participants were less likely than all other millennials, regardless of their race/ethnicity, to work in education, health, and social services. At the same time, Black and U.S.-born Hispanic millennials were more likely to work in retail trade than DACA recipients (19 percent versus 14 percent). In this case, we focus on DACA recipients rather than on DREAM-eligible young adults because the former already have work permits. DACA recipients represent the core of the DREAM-eligible millennial population, and their industries of employment provide a reasonable prediction of future sectoral distribution of other DREAMers.

No DREAM, No Deal

How many Democrats will do what’s right and refuse to pass a budget unless Congress authorizes a clean Dream Act?

By Steve Phillips

Not all Democrats are so resolute, however, and their ambivalence calls into question their conscience and their courage. There are few issues as morally clear-cut as the situation of the Dreamers. These are children, living, in most cases, in the only country they’ve known as home. Even if one accepts this country’s immigration laws as legitimate (something hard to do in a country where the racial superiority of whites was the defining component of immigration policy from 1790 until 1965), these young people are blameless. But the Trump administration has struck fear and uncertainty into the lives of millions of people with its promise to send armed government agents to round up children and ship them out of this country. “Unconscionable” is too soft a word to describe a situation that quite literally evokes prior periods in US history when government-backed slave catchers pursued a different era’s dark-skinned residents.

Watch: DACA Illegal Aliens Turn on Democrat Tim Kaine After Failing to Shut Down Govt over Amnesty


Open borders activists are turning on Democrats for not voting to shut down the federal government to give amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Following the passage of a year-end spending bill that did not include the increasingly unpopular amnesty for DACA illegal aliens, protesters made up of open borders advocates and illegal aliens flooded the office of Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), chanting “Shame on Kaine!” after the Senator did not vote to shut down the federal government.

For months, the open borders lobby has demanded House and Senate Democrats shut down the federal government in order to give the nearly 800,000 DACA illegal aliens an end-of-the-year amnesty before March 2018 when the program will officially end.
After being defeated this month, the Republican establishment has already made clear that they will seek to push an amnesty for DACA illegal aliens in January 2018.

"If the racist "Sensenbrenner Legislation" passes the US Senate, there is no doubt that a massive civil disobedience movement will emerge. Eventually labor union power can merge with the immigrant civil rights and "Immigrant Sanctuary" movements to enable us to either form a new political party or to do heavy duty reforming of the existing Democratic Party. The next and final steps would follow and that is to elect our own governors of all the states within Aztlan." 
Mexican Invasion
By Tom Barrett 

At the current rate of invasion (mostly through Mexico, but also through Canada) the United States will be completely over run with illegal aliens by the year 2025. I’m not talking about legal immigrants who follow US law to become citizens. In less than 20 years, if we do not stop the invasion, ILLEGAL aliens and their offspring will be the dominant population in the United States. 


"Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a large percentage of the nation’s annual income has shifted to investors and away from employees." NEIL MUNRO


The Democratic Party used to be the party of blue collar America- supporting laws and policies that benefitted that segment of the U.S. population.  Their leaders may still claim to be advocates for American working families, however their duplicitous actions that betray American workers and their families, while undermining national security and public safety, provide clear and incontrovertible evidence of their lies…. MICHAEL CUTLER …FRONTPAGE mag

Despite the fact that the majority of documented hispanics oppose illegal immigration, as do the majority of Americans, Aztlan and La Raza race hate groups have become the self-appointed voice for a separatist movement that threatens a violent overthrow of the Constitutional system and a barbaric program of ethnic cleansing. This is held up by the media as 'diversity' and to vociferously oppose it is scorned as racism.

“For decades, the American people have begged and pleaded with their government for a lawful system of immigration that serves the national interest—a system that has as its foremost priorities their safety, their jobs, and their well-being,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said. “The current immigration system is easily abused by fraudsters and nefarious actors, and that’s certainly true of the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. If the fraud is not detected and swift enforcement actions are not taken, chain migration only multiplies the consequences of this abuse. Unfortunately, there are many instances of fraud across our immigration system. The American people deserve a better system that works for them, and the Department of Justice will continue its efforts to deliver one to them.” ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS


“That Washington-imposed policy of mass-immigration floods the market with foreign laborspikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate priceswidens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.” ---- NEIL MUNRO


Time to put the interests of American families first.

It has taken decades of concerted efforts by the immigration anarchists to get America to the dangerous point where it is today.  
Currently America has a population of unknown millions of illegal aliens who entered the United States covertly and without vetting by running our borders. Their presence in the United States and their very identities are unknown and unknowable.
We also have millions of illegal aliens who violated the terms of their lawful admissions into the United States and have gone “missing in America.” 
Incredibly so-called “Sanctuary Cities” and “Sanctuary States” 

harbor and shield these illegal aliens from detection by the 

Department of Homeland Security and its component immigration 

law enforcement agencies, even as mayors of those cities demand 

to be given federal funds to combat crime and protect their 

residents against international terrorists they may be harboring.
Securing our nation’s borders and enforcing our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States has nothing to do with racism, bigotry or xenophobia, the lie most often spewed by immigration anarchists, but has everything to do with national security, public safety and public health.
Our immigration laws have nothing to do with race, religion or ethnicity.  A review of Title 8 U.S. Code § 1182 will quickly lay waste to the notion that our immigration laws are about racism or bigotry.  That section of law enumerates the grounds of inadmissibility of aliens without considering their race, religion or ethnicity.
Among the categories of such aliens to be excluded are those who have dangerous communicable diseases, are seriously mentally ill, are criminals, fugitives, spies, terrorists or have been previously deported from the United States and have not been granted authorization since deportation to reenter the United States.  That section of law also protects American workers from unfair foreign competition.
The primary goal of all five branches of the U.S. military is to keep America’s enemies as far from our shores as possible. However, in this era of terrorism and asymmetrical warfare, terrorists don’t engage in conventional warfare against our military, but seek to enter the United States by whatever means that they can, to carry out deadly terrorist attacks against our civilian population. 
During World War II Nazi saboteurs came to America on German U-boats and used other covert means to infiltrate the U.S. to spy and commit acts of sabotage.  Today, the terrorists most often enter the United States through ports of entry.
However, all means of entering the United States, both legal means and illegal means, can and have provided terrorists and transnational criminals and fugitives with access to the United States.
As I have frequently noted, the United States has fifty “border states.”  Any state that lies along America’s northern or southern borders are border states as are those states that have access to America’s 95,000 miles of coastline.  Finally, any state that has an international airport is also a border state.
Therefore the mission of immigration law enforcement is to back up the military by making the borders of the United States our first and last line of defense against America’s foes and those foreign nationals who would pose a threat to the safety and well-being of America and Americans.
On September 11, 2001 just nineteen terrorists inflicted more casualties on the United States than did the entire Japanese fleet at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and the death toll from the attacks of 9/11 continues to climb.  
On December 14, 2017 the New York Post reported that a 9/11 first responder killed himself after a battle with lung disease.  That “first responder” was Douglas Greenwood, the NYPD Captain who led the first responders who dug through the mountain of rubble at “Ground Zero” that came to be known as “the pile” searching at first for survivors and then for human remains. His disease not unlike so many others, was attributed to exposure to the toxins released with the World Trade Center complex was destroyed by two hijacked airliners on 9/11.
Today much has been made about chain migration and the underlying principle of “family reunification.”  The idea is that if an alien is granted lawful immigrant status and subsequently becomes a United States citizen, he/she may then petition the U.S. government to have their brothers and sisters become resident aliens along with all of their spouses and minor children.
The incredible lie is that it is unfair for aliens to legally immigrate to the United States and thus be separated from their families. The Obama administration went even beyond the provisions of the immigration laws and mandated that so-called illegal alien “unaccompanied minors” be permitted to enter the United States to be “reunified” with their illegal alien family members who were already living illegally in the United States.
Under current immigration laws, aliens who become lawful immigrants are able to bring their nuclear families with them as immigrants.  This means that their spouses and minor children are also granted Alien Registration Cards (Green Cards).  This makes perfect sense.
However, when lawful immigrants become United States citizens, they are then entitled to petition to have their parents and all of their brothers and sisters admitted as lawful immigrants in their own rights.  Furthermore, their siblings are also entitled, as immigrants, to have all of their spouses and minor children granted green cards as well.
Because of this, one newly-minted U.S. citizen can ultimately provide lawful immigrant status to dozens of extended family members.
Under this visa program, the impact that such massive numbers of immigrants will have on job prospects for America workers is not taken into account.  Simply by virtue of a familial 
relationships, the United States admits large numbers of aliens who may compete unfairly with American workers.
Flooding American schools with non-English speaking children creates a hardship for school districts and the students who attend those beleaguered schools.
In December 2007 the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) published an important report, “The Impact of Unauthorized Immigrants on the Budgets of State and Local Governments” that found that it costs between 20 percent and 40 percent extra to educate students who lack English language proficiency. 
We need to take a moment to consider how insane the notion of providing green cards to extended family members of naturalized citizens truly is given how this impacts America and Americans.
To shed light on the absurdity of the false narrative created by the open borders/immigration anarchists that it is reasonable to provide green cards to extended family members to reunite families in the United States, we ought to consider that is not uncommon in America for children to grow up and voluntarily take jobs across the United States and even, outside the United States. 
Those children are free to return home for holidays and to attend family functions.  Similarly, members of their families may opt to travel to visit with them in their new homes across the United States.
This is comparable to the alien who makes the willful decision to immigrate to America.  These immigrants and naturalized citizens are certainly free to travel back to their home countries to spend time with their families whenever they wish.
Additionally --  and this is the part of the immigration issue that is never discussed -- there are two forms of visas that can be granted to aliens: immigrant visas and nonimmigrant visas.
Each year the United States provides approximately one million aliens with lawful immigrant status.  Immigrant visas immediately place the alien on the pathway to citizenship.  However, each year tens of millions of nonimmigrant (temporary) foreign visitors are admitted into the United States as tourists, foreign students and authorized temporary workers.
Family members of naturalized citizens are free to travel to the United States, presuming that they have no criminal histories, or other such factors in their backgrounds, as nonimmigrant visitors.
They can be granted tourist visas or, if they are citizens of one of the 38 Visa Waiver Countries, don’t require visas to spend up to 90 days in the United States to visit with their family members who have become naturalized citizens.
As tourists they may not work in the United States, but they certainly can spend time with their family members here.
Back when I was an Immigration Inspector at the beginning of my career with the INS it was not uncommon form many foreign visitors to travel to the United States on tourist visas to visit for a temporary period with their family members who had immigrated to the United States.
Today the news media and advocates for open border and immigration anarchy refuse to discuss this aspect of the lawful immigration program because it provides a “solution” to a problem that really does not exist.
Current immigration laws are not incompatible with the compassion of our nation.  
Nonimmigrant visas can enable families to be reunited in a way that does not undermine the lives and livelihoods of Americans and the sovereignty and security of our nation.  However, this runs contrary to the immigration anarchists who are often improperly referred to as being “pro-immigrant” by the compliant globalist media.
