“Liberal governing has transformed beautiful California into the poverty capital of America with the worst quality of life. Crazy taxes, crazy high cost of living, and crazy overreaching regulations have crushed the middle class, forcing the middle class to exit the Sunshine State. All that is left in California are illegals feeding at the breast of the state, rapidly growing massive homeless tent cities, and the mega-rich.” LLOYD MARCUS

LA RAZA PELOSI QUESTIONS 'MERIT' OF MELANIA TRUMP'S PARENTS' IMMIGRATION.... But didn't Pelosi make her millions off exploiting "cheap" labor illegals in Mexifornia???
Pelosi Questions ‘Merit’ of Melania Trump’s Parents’ Immigration
House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized President Donald Trump’s support for merit-based immigration policy Wednesday by questioning the “merit” of the immigration of First Lady Melania Trump’s parents.
Speaking to the Commonwealth Club of California, Pelosi also claimed that, when President Trump uses the word “merit,” it’s actually code for “Make America white again”:
"When the president says, 'Merit,' turn it upside down - that means, 'Make America white again.' Export, have people leave, just go back, and we’ll just let in who we like.
"I don’t know if merit counted for when his wife’s family came into the country.
"I don’t know. Maybe, it did. God bless him, if it did. But, he calls that chain migration, which he wants to get rid of, family unification. Instead, call it merit."
Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the twin nutters of Congress, were certain they could
beat Trump at his own game, but have made fools of themselves, as
usual. The stand-off is not over but with each passing day, the
Democrats reveal more of their anti-American, pro-illegal immigration agenda.
Conservatives have been sounding the alarm for years: Democrats do not

securing the border, a confounded news anchor will insist, “Silly fool! Why,
everyone supports border security!”

Vice President Joe Biden’s plan on his website: “We have got to address the root causes of migration
that push people to leave behind their homes and everything they know to
undertake a dangerous journey for the chance at a better life." It says
nothing about halting the obscene numbers of migrants showing up at the border
with bogus claims for asylum or the illegal border crossers with histories
of child sex abuse and violent gang affiliations caught daily. Ah, but it does check the empty
“secure our border and enforce our laws” banality.
Sen. Bernie Sanders calls for expanding protections for illegal immigrants
already in the U.S., “developing a humane policy for those seeking
asylum," and virtually eliminating the deportation and detention of
illegal aliens altogether. Sanders’ website doesn’t even bother nodding to the
“border security” cliché.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren doesn’t mention immigration at all on her website. But in
interviews, she says the same nothing that every Democrat says. “We need an
immigration system that is effective, that focuses on where problems are,” she
said Wednesday on CNN, though Democrats never
seem to find “where the problems are” when talking about the topic. They deny
that even one illegal immigrant might be a rapist or drug dealer, even though
there are scores of them. They deny that there’s a “crisis” at the border,
where five children have died in recent weeks. They deny that illegal
immigrants soak up welfare benefits (even though they do). So where exactly are
the “problems”? Warren said in the interview that “we need immigration laws
that focus on people who pose a real threat,” but how exactly do Democrats
define “real threat”? They apparently see no threat, otherwise they wouldn’t
oppose the construction of a border wall with the fury of a volcano god.
Sen. Kamala Harris has compared Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Ku
Klux Klan, called on Senate Democrats to resist funding any measure or resource
on the border that functions to apprehend and detain illegal border crossers,
and made protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients
among her top issues. I think we know where she stands on
Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg finally got some policy positions on his
website and he proposes “immigration laws to reflect today’s humanitarian and
economic needs” as well as “reasonable security measures at the border.” Well,
I feel better now, how about you? Last month, Buttigieg said he would be happy to welcome an
infinite number of immigrants, legal or not, to his city, where he thought they
would contribute to the snowplowing and need for more firefighters. Aw, shucks!
Is that what the tiny Guatemalan woman who arrived at the Texas border with seven
children wanted to do all along? Why didn’t they say so? Hand them each a
helmet and hose!
Democrats, with the media’s help, will either avoid the immigration issue as
long as possible, or keep repeating “border security, border security, border
security” in hopes that no one notices what they’re really after: Open borders
and unabated immigration.

why President Donald Trump’s plan to resettle “refugees” in sanctuary cities

inviting the refugees now stranded at the border, Pacific Heights would not
only strengthen the sinew of its community but also contribute to alleviating
the humanitarian crisis at the border.
strength is our diversity, and Pacific Heights lacks that strength. It is
culturally homogenous in a city that is diverse.
San Francisco, earning $117,000 a year or less makes you a
low-income earner. Placing refugees in Pacific Heights
where housing and other costs are truly astronomical would require the
compassion and economic assistance of its residents. The former they have long
signaled, and the latter they are more than able to do.

a walled mansion on a large expanse of land with
majestic views. Her mansion could easily house thirty or forty refugee
families, and she is hardly there. The expansive grounds could house dozens of
refugee families in tents.

Pelosi herself nor the community of Pacific Heights can solve the refugee
problem, but they could set a standard that other wealthy and pro-sanctuary
communities could easily emulate.
a few miles away from Pacific Heights, my liberal acquaintances “Ann” and
“Christopher” live in a complex that is more difficult to enter than the
Central Intelligence Agency. They both support the sanctuary status of San
Francisco and think the border wall, but not their complex’s barrier, is
immoral. Ann is a big DACA supporter although she has been seen adroitly
ignoring and bypassing the homeless that proliferate in her neighborhood and
sleep on her streets. Her compassion obviously has its limits.
complex boasts extensive patios between the stacks of apartments. These could
host a dozen or more tents and port-a-potties that could alleviate the cagelike
situations at the border that they lament as deplorable. Although these
facilities would constitute an eyesore and block the light and view Ann and
Christopher currently enjoy, creating a tent community for refugees would
demonstrate the concern and compassion that people like Ann and Christopher
love to remind the rest of us that they possess.
compassion in Western Civilization derives from the Biblical sense of the term
and means to share in the suffering and emotions of others. When Jesus saw his
friends weeping at the grave of Lazarus, He wept with them and acted.
Compassion means to suffer with and to be motivated to take immediate action to
alleviate the suffering of others.
let the virtue-signaling liberals in sanctuary cities who incessantly lecture
us on their commitment to taking in everyone, liberals who find the rest of us
insensitive and heartless, let them manifest in deed the compassion they so
relentlessly embrace in word. Let them fulfill the Biblical imperative to
suffer with and take immediate action.
they will be rewarded for this in knowing that their upscale white communities
can find new strength in the economic and cultural diversity that the refugees
will provide. I am looking forward to the sprouting of tent cities in Pacific
Heights and elsewhere in the upscale parts of San Francisco. Diversity is truly
a community’s strength.

joining a small-town police force in California and working to improve his
English. The day after Christmas, he stopped another immigrant, this one in the

8-year-old Guatemalan boy who died in U.S. custody took his son to the border

pay for itself, if only in the reduced cost of crimes that would be eliminated,
saving both dollars from overburdened social services and the cost of illegal

His death, the death of a
legal immigrant pursuing the American dream, and countless other American
citizens, including children, is on the hands of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck
Schumer. Perhaps Pelosi can attend Singh’s funeral and explain how his death

fault and that not building the wall is the moral thing to do.

guarantee Democratic victories, but it also shifts California's political

It certainly is a good time to be an illegal alien in California.
Democratic State Sen. Ricardo Lara last week pitched a bill to permit illegal
immigrants to serve on all state and local boards and commissions. This week,
lawmakers unveiled a $1 billion health
care plan that would include spending $250 million to extend health care
coverage to all illegal alien adults.
“Currently, undocumented adults are explicitly and unjustly locked out of
healthcare due to their immigration status. In a matter of weeks, California
legislators will have a decisive opportunity to reverse that cruel and
counterproductive fact,” Assemblyman Joaquin Arambula said in Monday’s Sacramento Bee.
His legislation, Assembly Bill 2965, would give
as many as 114,000 uninsured illegal aliens access to Medi-Cal programs. A
companion bill has been sponsored by State Sen. Richard Lara.
But that could just be a drop in the bucket. The Democrats’ plan covers
more than 100,000 illegal aliens with annual incomes bless than $25,000,
however an estimated 1.3 million might be eligible based on their earnings.
In addition, it is estimated that 20 percent of those living in
California illegally are uninsured – the $250 million covers just 11 percent.
So, will politicians soon be asking California taxpayers once again to
dip into their pockets to pay for the remaining 9 percent?
Before they ask for more, Democrats have to win the approval of Gov.
Jerry Brown, who cautioned against spending away the state’s surplus when
he introduced his $190
billion budget proposal in January.
Given Brown’s openness to expanding Medi-Cal expansions in recent years,
not to mention his proclivity for blindly supporting any measure benefitting
lawbreaking immigrants, the latest fiscal irresponsibility may win approval.
And if he takes a pass, the two Democrats most
likely to succeed Brown – Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and former Los Angeles Mayor
Antonio Villaraigosa – favor excessive social
spending and are actively courting illegal immigrant support.

The Gospel According to Nancy: No
Borders, Kill Babies (UNLESS THEY'RE LA RAZA ANCHOR BABIES!)
Tucker Carlson pointed out a few days ago how the
already insufferable leader of the Congressional Democrats has recently been
"ordained….an archbishop in the church of progressive
sanctimony." For a while now, Nancy Pelosi's been the country's
expert on morality (e.g., border wall: immoral; abortion on demand: moral). She's
now taken to telling the country how much she prays, and she's urging others to
do it, too – at least that old sinner, Donald Trump. After last
Thursday's televised squabble in the Oval Office, Pelosi shared with reporters
how she told Trump she was praying for him and urged
the president (whom she also called a "skunk" while
ridiculing his manhood) to accept the Democrats' budget proposal with no
funding for a border wall. "In fact," she said with
stomach-turning piety, "I asked him to pray over it."
When a smug person ends an argument by
telling you to "pray over it," she's really saying, "Ask
God. He knows I'm right!"
Summarizing her and Chuck Schumer's
meeting with Trump, she told the media, "I myself thought we should open
the meeting with a prayer, which I did. I told him about King
Solomon, when he was to become king of the Jews, he prayed to God, he said: 'I
need you to give me great understanding and wisdom, Lord.'"
King Solomon is Pelosi's favorite Bible
character, especially because he proposed solving a problem by cutting a baby
Now Sister Nancy's praying for Trump to keep
the government open so federal employees can finish their Christmas shopping.
It's an axiom that if a conservative
says his faith informs his political decisions, he'll be condemned for
establishing a state religion, while liberals get to veer back and forth over
the church-state centerline as freely as those motorists who love to text while
driving. Right now the liberal media are applauding the way Pelosi
Donald Trump about the Bible," but it's not clear why. It's not
as if they're suddenly in favor of anyone being schooled in the Bible,
especially anyone in a public classroom.
Pelosi never bats an eye without a
political motive. This Saint Nancy act might be her attempt to
occupy the spiritual high ground that, obviously, Donald Trump has shown no
interest in occupying himself. Pelosi wouldn't dare try this with a
president like George W. Bush, who, while he didn't boast about his piety on
TV, was recognized as genuine in his Christian faith – prompting the left's
usual reaction: Ross Douthat wrote in
2006 that "the fear of theocracy has become a defining panic of the Bush
Theology was less of an issue for
liberals during the Obama years; he was their messiah, and they just worshiped
him. Meantime, Obama conspicuously dissed orthodox Christians with
everything from calculated snubs and criticism to
gratuitously tormenting the Little Sisters of the Poor, all the while
devotedly celebrating the unblemished virtues of Islam. In
2015, Hillary bluntly stated that
"[d]eep-seated ... religious beliefs ... have to be changed" to
accommodate the unlimited abortion license. Then, last year,
Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said it is "not negotiable" that
"[e]very Democrat" support abortion. Pelosi tried to
mitigate Perez's remarks by saying "of course" there's
room for pro-lifers in the Democratic Party, but try to find one who's not
actually voting Perez-style.
This year, Pelosi watched the Democrats
lurch wildly to the extreme left. For decades before that, they were
trusted allies in the left's war on conventional morality and religion (except
Islam!) for being repressive, patriarchal, and
counterrevolutionary. It may be that, alarmed that the Democrat
brand has become too materialistic, amoral, and atheist, she thinks she can
give it religion. Maybe she can draw an unfavorable comparison
between the reprobate and undisciplined Donald Trump and herself: the
"ardent, practicing Catholic," who exhorts the President to beg for
"the great understanding and wisdom" that she (and Chuck Schumer?)
have already been granted by God. Haven't Republicans marched under
the banner of morality and Christian values long enough? Now that
they've elected the unholy Trump, why can't the Democrats seize that banner for
For one thing, because no evangelical or
conservative Catholic would ever buy it. Sure, the Democratic Party
is crowded with Catholics, but the serious ones left years ago. The
leading unserious Catholic is Pelosi herself, who professes her devotion to the
faith but does it while living in open, willful defiance of the Church's
crystal-clear teaching against abortion: "It is the teaching of the
Catholic Church from the very beginning that the killing of an unborn child is
always intrinsically evil and can never be justified."
When her duplicity threatened to become
an issue in 2004, Pelosi pretended that, moved by her "ardent"
devotion to the Church, she had been studying the Church's teaching on the
beginning of life "a long time," and she stated falsely to Tom Brokaw
on Meet the Press that the Church has never defined it. Asked when human
life begins, she replied, "We don't know," and that "[t]he point
is, that it shouldn't have an impact on the woman's right to choose" – the
"it" being when a human life begins, which shouldn't have an
impact on the decision to get an abortion. Easy mistake to
make when your catechism is Roe v. Wade.
Later, when a reporter mentioned the
Gosnell infanticides and challenged her own support for partial-birth abortion,
an agitated Pelosi snarled back that "[a]s a practicing and respectful
Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when
we talk about this[.] ... This shouldn't have anything to do with
politics." But as a politician, she never stops talking about
it, and the sacred ground she was talking about wasn't human life, but the
exercise of a mother's "free will" to terminate her
child. In response, New York's Cardinal Egan said, "Anyone
who dares to defend that [the
unborn] may be legitimately killed because another human being 'chooses' to do
so or for any other equally ridiculous reason should not be providing
leadership in a civilized democracy worthy of the name." Her
own bishop reluctantly corrected her misstatements in a public letter, necessitated
by "the widespread consternation among Catholics" of her deliberate
distortions of Catholic doctrine. Pope Benedict counseled
her, in person, on the Church's express teaching, "which
enjoins all Catholics, and especially legislators," to protect "human
life at all stages of its development." Pelosi, " the
respectful Catholic" who presumed to tell Trump to pray for wisdom,
emerged from thatmeeting no wiser
for it, obtusely extolling the "Church's leadership in fighting poverty,
hunger and global warming."
Jesus warned against hypocrites who make
a public display of praying "that they may be seen by
men." The way Pelosi pretends to exemplify
"prayerful" politics, and the way she told Trump "in
private" that she's praying for him – and immediately announced it in a
televised press conference – is pure Pelosi: cynical, addlebrained,
phony. If it might hurt Trump, she'll pontificate how every MS-13
killer retains a "spark of divinity," then goes right back to
her life's work snuffing out that spark from 60 million innocents and
counting. The Bible never says it's intrinsically evil to build a
wall or protect a border, but it's still got that commandment against murder.
Let the Democrats canonize this Pharisee
if they need a patron saint. Her feast day can fall on January 22.

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the twin
nutters of Congress, were certain they could beat Trump at his own game, but
have made fools of themselves, as usual. The stand-off is not over
but with each passing day, the Democrats reveal more of their anti-American,
pro-illegal immigration agenda. Conservatives have been sounding the
alarm for years: Democrats do not care about American
We are an annoying inconvenience,
especially those of us who do not buy what they are selling. We vote
against them, which makes them angry. They lash out at us, call us
names, impugn our intelligence with fervor. All of the late-night
comics, the Bill Mahers of the comedy branch of the entertainment industry, are
especially venal. Jimmy Kimmel has decried those who have
contributed to the GoFundMe page to fund
the border wall as meth addicts. It was begun by a Vet, Brad Kolfage, who lost
three limbs and it's raised nearly $15m.
It appears that Democratic members of
Congress are as snowflakey as millennials on our university campuses. They
assume that anyone who opposes their ridiculous socialist, genderless,
climate-alarmist, virtue-signaling directives is a Neanderthal, unfit to have
an opinion. It is then thoroughly acceptable to malign such people, those
of us who oppose every aspect of their anti-America-as-founded agenda, in
any and every disgusting manner they can devise.
The left is all about identity politics. They
assign all of us to a group -- racial, class, and/or all of their fabricated
gender categories. The right is all about individuals, their
character, their talent, their contributions to society. We do not
care about skin color, economic class or sexual orientation. We do
care about good vs. evil, right vs. wrong. This makes us quite
villainous in the eyes of the left for whom everything is relative. For
example, we do not think poverty causes crime, unlearned values of Western
Civilization do. Try to steal an election? It is moral if it takes
out an opponent. We are, it appears, the left vs. the right, very
different on a neurological level.
Schumer and Pelosi have armed guards
whenever they are amongst the public. But they are both fervent in
their quest to deny us the right to bear arms and to prevent a wall on the
southern border to protect us from the flood of lethal drugs that flow into the
US. They are impervious to the crimes of the barbaric gangs like
MS13, no matter how many innocent Americans they kill. They do not
give a thought to the many illegals from terrorist nations that also seek to
enter the country on a daily basis. Schumer, Pelosi and their
willing subjects in Congress ignore completely the horrific hazards that cross
the border every day. They want cheap labor, no matter how many
Americans are left jobless, and they want, more than anything, a dependent
underclass whom they mean to give the right to vote. They already
vote anyway, thanks to the Left's rejection of Common-sense voter ID.
If there were a television program based
on Schumer and Pelosi, it would have to be a comedy; the two of them are so
inept, so childish. They would be Dumb and Dumber redux. Each
of them seems to believe they run the country and can dictate to the president
how he will govern. They demand that Trump abandon the wall. They
have no intention of compromising; they only want to deny Trump and his
supporters what they want -- border security that works. So enraged,
so benighted, by Trump's presidency, they would rather see us overrun by
migrants from third-world nations, like those who have destroyed the UK,
Germany, Sweden, and the rest of Europe, than protect America as a sovereign
The "government shutdown" is
just a ploy, many times overused by now, relatively meaningless to the lives of
most Americans. The Schumer & Pelosi show will do everything they can to
hype it as a disaster, but we all know it is nothing of the
kind. Trump must hold out for funding of the wall.
While there have been some bad actors in
our government in the past, Schumer and Pelosi are the worst of the
worst. They are equally arrogant, each thoroughly ignorant of
reality beyond the bubble of wealth and privilege they inhabit. They
both believe themselves to be smarter than the rest of us, when in fact they
are both really dim bulbs, long past their sell-by date. Yes, Pelosi
is good at raising money; how and why is a mystery. That each of
them is repeatedly re-elected does not say much for their constituents'
familiarity with the Constitution, the law, American history or the facts in
their own communities.
San Francisco, Pelosi's district is now
a hell-hole but for her walled compound. New York too,
like California, is a state that residents are fleeing as fast as they
can. Both states have been destroyed by moonbatty leftists; high taxes,
dumbing down of education for political purposes, and the sacrifice of common
sense to global warming alarmists. Schumer and Pelosi have for years
been on board with every silly attempt to restructure, to transform, American
society. They both jumped on the Obama bandwagon the moment he was
elected. Along with Obama, they are responsible for incalculable
damage done to this country over the eight years of that
administration. While their constant appearances on television are
so often humorous (Pelosi's silly, practiced hand gestures and
Schumer's relentless badgering of Trump), they are not one bit
funny. They are just loathsome.
The Minuteman Project, founded by Jim
Gilchrist (who is also the co-author of the book Minutemen: The Battle to
Secure America’s Borders), is made up of citizen volunteers who watch our
border with Mexico and report illegal entry to the border patrol. For
performing that thankless task in full compliance with the law, Gilchrist and
his colleagues have been falsely maligned as fascists, racists, and even
murderers. They have been driven off the speaker’s platform at Columbia
University and vilified by Leftist politicians and their handmaidens in the liberal
So it was no surprise that the mainstream
media chose to ignore a recent press release, issued by his publisher, in which
Gilchrist asked the question about Nancy Pelosi’s ethics that should be on the
minds of every law-abiding American – including those immigrants who are
following the law to become citizens here the proper way: “Do we really need a
House Speaker whose every action is calculated to enhance her own financial
interests, instead of focusing on how porous borders will affect the security
of everyday American citizens?”
Gilchrist did not stop there. He demanded
an investigation into Pelosi’s “economic stake in just the kind of illegal
alien exploitation that we deplore in Minutemen.” But you would never know it
from the liberal media, who - while ignoring this demand - have had no
compunctions in calling for Speaker Hastert’s head in the wake of the Foley
Gilchrist was reacting to my report
several weeks ago in FrontPage Magazine that Pelosi – who owns non-union
vineyards in Napa Valley where grape-picking depends chiefly on the
availability of cheap foreign labor – is doing everything she can to help open the
floodgates to more illegal immigration. And she wants the American taxpayers to
pay their way. As even more proof of this than I previously reported, Pelosi
does not want employers like her to be required to pay the cost of illegal
aliens’ hospital care. She voted against a bill that would make employers
liable for the reimbursements if an undocumented employee seeks medical
attention. And she voted in favor of rewarding
illegal aliens from Mexico with Social Security benefits.
At the same time, Pelosi has led the
Democratic opposition to any effective border controls or documentation
requirements. She opposed the Secure Fence Act of 2006, signed into law by
President Bush, and voted against final passage of a border security and
enforcement bill in 2005 which required that all businesses must use an
electronic system to check if all new hires have the legal right to work in
this country. She voted against a bill to bar drivers' licenses for illegal
aliens in 2005. This year she opposed legislation requiring presentation of a
legitimate government-issued photo ID to prove eligibility to vote, claiming
that “there is little evidence anywhere in the country of a significant problem
with non-citizen voters.” She is dead wrong. For example, an accused terrorist
by the name of Nuradin Abdi was just recently reported to have illegally
registered to vote at the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Nuradin Abdi was
indicted earlier this year as part of a conspiracy to blow up the Columbus
How many other terrorist suspects may have
slipped through the system because Leftists like Pelosi oppose any meaningful
screens? Instead she continues to advocate our recognition of the flimsy,
non-validated ID card that the Mexican consulates provide to illegal aliens
before they cross over our border, called the “matricula consular”, which gives
them phony documentation to set up bank accounts, apply for jobs, obtain social
benefits, board airplanes, identify themselves to police, enter buildings that
require IDs, obtain drivers’ licenses and then perhaps use those drivers’
licenses to try to illegally register to vote in our elections.
Pelosi also believes in giving sanctuary
to illegal aliens. She opposed legislation to deny federal homeland security
funding to state and local governments who refuse to share information they
learn about an individual's immigration status with Federal immigration
authorities. Pelosi’s hometown of San Francisco is one of the sanctuary cities
she voted to protect for the benefit of illegal aliens. Pelosi even voted
against strengthening our immigration law with regard to the deportability of
Jim Gilchrist cut to the chase with this
devastating observation that the mainstream media does not want you to read:
"As we’ve shown again and again in
‘Minutemen,’ the Democrats aren’t just hypocrites, but are working actively to
subvert our legislative system to their own ends. Their only goal is votes,
votes and more votes, no matter where they come from, no matter if they’re cast
legally, no matter whether the person casting them is dead, alive, a citizen or
an illegal alien."
Pelosi sees Jim Gilchrist’s Minutemen
Project as a threat to her pro-illegal alien agenda. More illegal aliens mean
more votes for the Democrats and more grape-pickers for Napa Valley vineyards
like hers. So she even voted against a measure that would have cut off the use of
U.S. taxpayers’ funds to tip off illegal aliens as to where the Minutemen
citizen patrols may be located! She obviously wants to see the Minutemen put
out of business – permanently. She can count on the liberal press to distort
the work of the Minutemen and to keep out of the public eye Gilchrist’s pointed
questions about her motivations for helping illegal aliens during the run-up to
the mid-term elections that may make her the next Speaker of the House.
Gilchrist, of course, is accustomed to
being vilified and prevented by the Left from getting his message out. In early
October, he was prevented from finishing his speech at the "Minutemen
Forum" sponsored by the Columbia College Republicans. Gilchrist had spoken
for just a few minutes and managed to utter the words “I love the First
Amendment” when a group of radical protestors took the stage and interrupted
him, displaying a big banner saying "There are no illegals." More
protestors then stormed the stage. Chaos erupted and the audience members who
had come to hear Gilchrist speak never got the chance, which was precisely the
protestors’ objective. As reported online by the staff of Columbia’s
undergraduate newspaper, “a mosh pit of triumphal students and community
members danced and chanted outside, "Asian, Black, Brown and White, we
smashed the Minutemen tonight!" They also put out a statement declaring:
“The Minutemen are not a legitimate voice
in the debate on immigration. They are a racist, armed militia who have
declared open hunting season on immigrants, causing countless hate crimes and
over 3000 deaths on the border. Why should exploitative corporations have free
passes between nations, but individual people not? No human being is illegal.”
We have come to the point in this country
where a bunch of radical protestors get to decide who is and who is not a
legitimate voice in the debate on as critical a public policy issue as
immigration. Such Leftists think that migration in a borderless world is a
basic human right. They want no barriers, no guards, and no proof of lawful
residency. They certainly do not want the Minutemen watching the border and
reporting illegal entry to the authorities.
Leftist slogans like “no human being is
illegal” are red herrings. It is not the human being who is illegal; it is what
the human being does that may be illegal. One’s conduct is the test, not simply
who one is. Immigrants who follow our rules are welcome here. Those who do not
abide by our laws have no right to be here. A person who breaks into your house
without your permission does not deserve room, board and a job as a reward,
even if the intruder may be much poorer than you. He has broken the law and
deserves to be punished for what he has done. Our country’s boundaries and
rules for entry and residency similarly define who is permitted to be here and
how we choose to protect ourselves. We are a land of immigrants, but we are
also a land of laws with certain core values. Those seeking to enter our
country and remain here must learn to accommodate to our laws and values, not
the other way around. That is the way prior generations of immigrants did it,
including those who passed through Ellis Island. Why should the law be thrown
What we are witnessing is a frontal
challenge to our nation’s sovereignty. Mexico’s Foreign Secretary wants to drag
us before the United Nations for intending to build a fence on our side of the
border with our money to keep out aliens who seek to enter our country
illegally. They will probably get a sympathetic ear as some UN bureaucrats
believe there should be no such thing as “illegal” immigrants in the first
place. For the first time in our history, Americans are being asked to cede the
right to decide how we define ourselves as a nation and protect our own borders
to a globalist governance body. Will Pelosi lead her liberal loyalists as House
Speaker to support the UN against America’s right to control its own borders?
Do we really want to risk finding out?
It is high time, as Jim Gilchrist demanded
in the press release ignored by the mainstream media, that Pelosi come clean
under oath as to her personal stake in the illegal immigration issue before she
can do even more damage as House Speaker.
