Democrats, Business-first GOP Senators Block Trump’s Immigration Reforms


Authored by Neil Munro | 15 Feb 2018

60 Democrats and business-first establishment Republican Senators blocked President Donald Trump’s populist immigration reform agenda, pushing the hot-button topic towards the November election.

Democratic leader Chuck Schumer used his brief speech before the vote to blame President Donald Trump for the Democrats’ refusal to accept a reform-for-amnesty deal, saying:

President Trump created this problem by terminating the DACA program last August. Since then, President Trump has stood in the way over every single proposal that could become law …  President Trump has failed his test of leadership spectacularly.

The Trump-backed bill, led by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, lost by 39 to 60, showcasing the political clout of the tacit alliance between pro-immigration progressive Democrats and roughly 12 business-first Republicans, plus at least one anti-amnesty Republican. Many business groups had pressured the GOP Senators to vote against the reforms, largely because Trump promised to cut future legal immigration levels.

The defeat may block pending Senate negotiations over the appropriation of $1.6 billion for the border-wall spending in 2018. The funding decision is slated for completion in late March.

The defeat also invites Trump to make immigration reform a central issue in the November election. White House officials have pushed that strategy in the last few days, noting that polls show that most Americans want immigration rules to favor Americans and their paychecks — instead of cheap-labor companies or immigrants.

The vote showed that several red-state Democrats facing the voters this November joined with the business-first Republicans to maintain wage-cutting immigration, and to preserve the unpopular visa-lottery and chain-migration programs.

Throughout the four-vote series of amendments, few Democrats crossed the line to vote for Trump’s pro-American proposals, while several Republicans backed the cheap-labor amnesty bills.

For example, only three Democrats voted against the Democrats’ main proposal — which would have suspended enforcement of immigration law for migrants who arrived before January 1 (a morning draft of the legislation said the deadline was June 30).

At least two of those Senators only voted no after the 41 GOP Senators had already successfully voted to block the proposal. They were New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall and California Sen. Kamala Harris. The final result was 47 to 54.

Three red-state Democratic Senators voted for the Grassley/Trump measure. They were North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly and West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin. Roughly 14 GOP Senators voted against the reform. 

Also, eight Republicans voted for the Democrats’ main amnesty bill, which was credited to the Democrat-dominated “Common Sense Coalition.” The amnesty GOP Senators were led by Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Jeff Flake, but also included Maine Sen. Susan Collins, South Dakota Sen. Mike Rounds,  Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Tennesee Sen. Lamar Alexander, and Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson. The Democrats’ anti-enforcement measure was also supported by GOP Sen. Cory Gardner, who is actually the chairman of the GOP Senators’ 2018 election campaign.

Media outlets portrayed the GOP’s business-first Senators as “moderates” or “conservatives.”

The 14 GOP Senators who voted against the Grassley-Trump measure included South Dakota’s Sen. John Thune, who is a member of the leadership team with Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell. The no votes included Sen. Ted Cruz, who said earlier he would oppose it because it endorsed an amnesty along with immigration reforms.

The list of 14 Senators also included several pro-amnesty Senators — Collins, Flake, and Murkowski — plus a series of business-leaning Senators, including Sens. Ben Sasse, John Thune, John Barrasso and Mike Enzi from Wyoming, Mike Lee from Utah, Jerry Moran from Kansas, Steve Daines from Montana, and John Kennedy from Lousiana.

Four GOP Senators — Flake, Gardner, Graham, Murkowski — also voted yes for another amnesty bill drafted by Democratic Sen. Chris Coons and GOP Sen. John McCain. That bill was defeated 47 to 52. Sen. Joe Manchin, a red-state Democrat who faces the voters in November, vote against the Coons-McCain giveaway.

Several of the Schumer-allied, pro-amnesty GOP Senators covered their pro-amnesty votes by also voting for the Grassley measure once it was clear that it would fail. They included Alexander, Gardner, Graham, Isakson, and Rounds.

Nearly all Democratic Senators voted against a proposal by GOP Sen. Toomey to financially penalize sanctuary cities. The amendment got 54 votes, which kept it six votes below the 60-vote threshold. Forty-seven Democrats voted against sanctuary-city penalties.

Even without the new laws from Congress, Trump can continue to enforce immigration laws, punish employers for hiring illegals and update visa and security rules to exclude dangerous migrants.

Many polls show that Trump’s 2016 immigration policies are very popular in the polling booth. His proposed amnesty for 1.8 million illegals gets high scores in business-funded polls but is unlikely to shift any votes into the GOP column in November.

Immigration polls which ask people to pick a priority, or to decide which options are fair, show that voters in the polling booth put a high priority on helping their families and fellow nationals get decent jobs in a high-tech, high-immigrationlow-wage economy. Those results are very different from the “Nation of Immigrants” polls which are funded by CEOs and progressives, and which pressure Americans to say they welcome migrants.

Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting roughly 1.1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.

The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via 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.

Dems Lose It as Tweet Suggests Trump Ordered Military Vet Deported… Fail to Realize It Was Actually Obama


Reported By Cillian Zeal | February 5, 2018 at 7:23am

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/dems-lose-it-tweet/

A misleading tweet from a reporter had Democrats and liberals on social media up in arms recently after it announced that a military veteran was being deported to Mexico. However, what the tweet left out was that the man had been drummed out of the military for a drug infraction, that he had served a lengthy prison term after giving drugs to an undercover officer — and that the deportation order had been issued under the Obama administration.

In a tweet last week, a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists posted the sad “travesty” of Miguel Perez:

It didn’t take the left long to pounce and take up the Chicago resident’s case.

Even the Democrats on the House Veterans Affairs Committee got in on the Trump-bashing action, arguing that no veteran should ever be deported:

Heartbreaking, until you consider what Mr. Woodman left out. And, according to the Washington Free Beacon, that’s a great deal.

First, Perez was given a general discharge from the Army on a drug infraction. In 2008, after his military service, according to the Chicago Tribune, he “handed a laptop case containing cocaine to an undercover officer and ended up being sentenced to 15 years in jail.

Perez, 39, was born in Mexico and came to the United States when his father moved the family to Chicago because of a job offer, according to CNN. He is currently on a hunger strike as he faces deportation. He says he mistakenly thought he became a U.S. citizen when he took an oath to defend the United States while in the military. He also contends his military superiors did not help him understand just what he needed to do in order to become a citizen.

After he was released from prison in September 2016, he was placed into the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and ordered deported. This, you may note, happened under the waning months of the Obama administration, which had every opportunity to make sure Perez stayed in the country. It did not.

“Perez’s attorney Chris Bergin said he has filed a stay on two grounds,” the Chicago Tribune reported. “One is based on a medical evaluation finding that Perez needs immediate attention for PTSD and his brain injury. The other seeks retroactive citizenship for Perez to when he joined the military in 2001.”

Perez has previously argued that veterans with combat experience are targeted by drug cartels in Mexico to work for them, although a three-judge panel on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected that argument in late January.

While Perez may have served this country, the fact is that he is being deported for a reason: He is not an American citizen, and he committed a serious crime.

Courts under both the Obama and Trump administrations have upheld his conviction, and if the Democrats had wanted to do anything about it, they certainly had a president who could have done just that. He chose not to, likely for good reason.

To drop this on the Trump administration is the height of deceptiveness. If liberals want to look at who’s really responsible for deciding this, they ought to look at someone else from Chicago: former President Obama.

Illegal Alien Stabbing Suspect Is Seven-Time Deported Felon


Reported by Michelle Moons | 18 Jan 2018

URL of the original posting site: http://www.breitbart.com/california/2018/01/18/illegal-alien-stabbing-suspect-7-time-deported-felon/ 

Weeks after Eulalio Miniz Orozco was arrested in December as the suspect in a California restaurant stabbing, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has revealed that he has been deported seven times and has multiple criminal convictions on his record.

Orozco, 39, was arrested on December 27, allegedly for the December 21 stabbing of a 61-year-old man at Santa Rosa’s Lola’s Supermarket, according to local Fox2 News. The two men had been sitting at separate tables and had not spoken when the elderly man was attacked, according to local authorities. Video surveillance provided authorities with images of Orozco.

Orozco also goes by the alias Ricardo Velasquez-Romero, an ICE official told the Daily Caller (DC).

Similarly, the illegal alien prosecuted for the killing of Kate Steinle in San Francisco was known for months as Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez before ICE officials were able to determine that this was actually just one of the aliases for Jose Garcia Zarate.

In Orozco’s case, ICE placed a detainer request on Orozco on December 28 in connection with the stabbing, ICE spokesman James Schwab told the DC. Schwab added that according to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) databases, Orozco has been deported seven times since 2007 to his native Mexico and has a criminal record that includes felony drug and weapons charges.

Before initially tracking down Orozco, the Santa Rosa Police Department asked for the community’s help in identifying the stabbing suspect in the days after the crime, even offering a description from witnesses of “a large tattoo on one of his forearms of the grim reaper, commonly referred to as La Santa Muerte.” After tracking down leads that led to the arrest of the suspect, the department posted a photo of him. At the time, a motive for the crime was still unknown. The victim’s condition at the time was upgraded to stable.

Orozco was charged with attempted murder for the December 21 stabbing, according to the Santa Rosa Police Department. His Sonoma County Jail booking listed multiple charges in the case, including felony counts.

A DHS report released this week revealed that according to ICE:

From October 1, 2011, to September 30, 2017, a total of 355,345 non-U.S. citizen offenders were arrested by ICE for purposes of removal after previously having been convicted of an aggravated felony … or two or more crimes each punishable by more than one year (felony offenses).

In addition, during that period, “372,09821 non-U.S. citizen offenders were removed from the United States after conviction of an aggravated felony or two or more felonies.”

Border Hawks Offer Cautious Praise for New House Immigration Bill. President and Homeland Security chief get behind proposal to codify DACA in exchange for multiple reforms


Reported by Brendan Kirby | Updated 11 Jan 2018 at 2:23 PM

Immigration hawks mostly gave high marks Thursday to a proposal to codify the quasi-amnesty program popularly known as DACA into law while granting a long wish list of advocates of tighter enforcement. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) unveiled the Securing America’s Future Act of 2018 Wednesday. Five senior Republicans are co-sponsoring the bill, including Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul (R-Texas), whom many border hawks view with suspicion.

“This is a very important bill,” Goodlatte told Fox News host Shannon Bream late Wednesday night. “The president, when he ended DACA, as he should have … said, ‘You have to address the DACA recipients.'”

 

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was created by an executive order signed by President Barack Obama. President Donald Trump withdrew the executive order and asked Congress to approve a permanent legislative solution.

The new bill would keep the current status of people enrolled in DACA, allowing participants to renew their work permits every three years but not have a chance to become citizens.

In exchange, the bill authorizes construction of a wall along the southwest border, adds 5,000 U.S. Border Patrol agents, mandates implementation of a biometric entry-exit system to track foreigners entering the country, improves technology, cracks down on “sanctuary” jurisdictions, requires employers to use the E-Verify system, and increases penalties on illegal immigrants who commit crimes after returning to America following deportation.

The bill also includes significant changes to the legal immigration system, cutting migration from other countries by 25 percent, ending a lottery program that awards about 50,000 green cards each year to people randomly chosen from a large pool of applicants in other countries, ending the ability of new citizens to sponsor extended family members for immigration, and granting preference to immigrants with skills and education.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, said passage of the bill would vastly improve the status quo but noted the proposal is not perfect. She expressed concerns in particular about a provision that expands agricultural guest workers.

“What this is, is a response to what the president and his homeland security officials have identified as needs … This is the bill that comes closest to fulfilling all of those needs, in addition to meeting some needs identified by employers in the agriculture sector, for instance,” she said.

President Donald Trump endorsed the legislation.

 

“The president looks forward to advancing legislation that secures the border, ends chain migration, cancels the visa lottery, and addresses the status of the DACA population in a responsible fashion,” the White House said in a statement late Wednesday night.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen praised the bill, saying it “reflects many of the policy principles and priorities identified by DHS’s frontline personnel which the administration has advocated for this past year.”

Other advocates for reducing legal and illegal immigration also endorsed the bill. NumbersUSA President Roy Beck said in a statement that the legislation “will deliver a significant net improvement to the lives of American wage-earners and communities … By moving us toward an immigration system that better serves the national interest, this bill keeps the promises of candidate Trump and President Trump.”

That view is not unanimous among immigration hawks, however. William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee, blasted the proposal as a “Republican dirty trick.” Gheen said he doubts the courts would ever allow a “second-class” tier of legal residents and would in short order grant them the ability to attain citizenship. He called support by NumbersUSA a “betrayal” of millions of Americans who have supported the organization over the years.

“The enforcement provisions mean nothing when the bill’s amnesty provisions will elect Bernie Sanders, Oprah Winfrey candidates for the next century,” he said.

Even if the House of Representatives passes the bill, it likely would be dead on arrival in the Senate, where supporters would need to win 60 votes to break an all-but-certain Democratic filibuster.

“It’s gonna be tough,” Vaughan acknowledged. “The problem is not only Democrats but some Republicans who are oblivious to these needs.”

Vaughan said the House should pass the strongest bill possible and then negotiate with the Senate. If the Senate were to pass a bill, she said, House Republicans would have to be willing to compromise.

“I’m OK with a good bill if you can’t get a great bill,” she said.

ISIS “Lone Wolf” Taunts New Yorkers With Chilling Selfies Taken in Their Midst


Reported By John Falkenberg | January 3, 2018 at 5:54pm

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/isis-lone-wolf-taunts-new-yorkers/

Authorities in New York are reportedly investigating what appears to be an Islamic State group-supporting young man taking “selfies” around New York City, specifically outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the One World Trade Center.

The images began circulating through social media over the previous weekend, according to Fox News, and their appearance has concerned countless thousands, if not millions.

According to the New York Daily News, “one of the images had the caption ‘We are in your own Backyard,’” said Eric Feinberg, the co-founder of GIPEC, a cyber-intelligence firm that monitors potential terrorist activity on social media. That’s certainly cause for some concern.

The above image from Twitter shows a young man wearing cold weather clothing with Islamic State branding on it. The purpose of such a photo is obvious: to instill fear in the hearts of the American people.

The Islamic State group wants to inspire lone wolves to believe that they are not alone, and that if they attack, they’ll be participating in the take-down of the United States, rather than the final gasps of the shell of a terrorist organization. Should they be foolish enough to believe that, they’ll pay for it dearly. Thanks to President Donald Trump, his administration, and the men and women of our armed forces, the Islamic State group is very quickly approaching “history textbook footnote” status.

Their antics may be slightly intimidating, but it’s important to keep in mind that the image above may well have been doctored.

“Maybe it’s Photoshopped, maybe it’s not. It should be taken seriously,” Feinberg said.

And this potential lone wolf is being taken very seriously. While a NYPD spokesman didn’t call the threat “credible,” he did say the matter was being looked into.

“The NYPD is aware of the photograph. As with all terror related threats, the NYPD is looking into the incident. At this time there are no credible threats related to New York City,” an NYPD spokesman said Tuesday night according to the New York Daily News.

It’s a dumb terrorist who deliberately provokes the boys in blue.

While leftist may crow that the United States has a mandate to keep its proverbial doors wide open to whoever would like to enter, incidents like these tell us a very different — and far more factual — story.

Build the wall, pass Kate’s Law, and tell Democrats to go to hell

Kate Steinle Senate Judiciary Committee hearing | Mark Wilson | Getty Images

President Donald Trump is outraged at the outcome of the Kate Steinle murder trial, in which accused killer Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty by a California jury on Thursday. His outrage is justified.

On July 1, 2015, the 32-year-old Steinle was shot in the back on Pier 14 in San Francisco while she was walking with her father. No one denies that Zarate shot her, but he claimed that he found a handgun wrapped in a T-shirt under a bench on the pier and that it fired accidentally as he tried to extract it.

Zarate was found not guilty of murder and not guilty of the lesser charges of involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon. He was convicted of illegally possessing a firearm, a sentence that carries up to three years. Federal immigration officials have stated that Zarate will be deported for a sixth time after he serves jail time.

Before the shooting, Zarate, an illegal immigrant who was deported five times previously, had been released from jail where he was being held on drug charges. He was released because of San Francisco’s sanctuary city polices, contrary to the will of federal immigration authorities who wanted him detained. He then went on to kill Steinle. 

President Trump called the verdict in Zarate’s trial a “disgrace.” He accused the previous administration of failing to protect the U.S. border and the Democratic party of being weak on crime. He also repeated his call to build a wall on the southern border.

President Trump’s tweets reflect the anger felt among his voters at the injustice of Kate Steinle’s death.

The issue is not that illegal immigrants commit a disproportionate number of crimes compared to American citizens. It is that every crime committed by an illegal immigrant is preventable if the United States would enforce its immigration laws and secure the border.

On the campaign trail in 2016, Trump consistently brought up Kate Steinle’s murder during while giving his pitch to voters on why the U.S. needs stricter immigration laws, tougher border enforcement, and an end to sanctuary city policies. Trump strongly supported the passage of Kate’s Law, which would increase penalties for those who attempt to re-enter the country after deportation, as Zarate did.

Every American with common sense understands that cities do not have the right to lawlessly nullify immigration law and endanger Americans. And someone who enters the United States illegally and commits crimes should be deported and never allowed back.

But that is not the case on the ground today, and so far Congress has been unwilling to act. Kate’s Law remains stalled in the U.S Senate. Funding for border security is hotly contested, as Congress debates extending current government spending levels through Dec. 22 to avoid government shutdown. Meanwhile, some Republicans are instead working to include a deal for DACA amnesty in the spending bill to be passed before the end of this year.

The American people cry out for justice. They want to be protected. They want American borders to be respected. They want illegal immigrant criminals expelled from this country. And instead, Congress is looking for ways to jam an amnesty package into a last-minute spending bill after sitting on its hands all year long and breaking other promises to repeal Obamacare and cut taxes.

President Trump is right that Democrats will pay a big price in the 2018 elections if they continue to obstruct the enforcement of American immigration law, but he doesn’t go far enough. If Republicans fail to deliver on tougher immigration enforcement, if they pass amnesty first instead, they will pay a far greater price for betraying their promises and wasting their time in power.

There are several actions the government can take to address the injustice of this pathetic verdict and ensure that there will be no more deaths like Kate Steinle’s. First, Attorney General Jeff Sessions should indict Zarate as an illegal immigrant in possession of a firearm. This is the action Trump’s executive branch can immediately take.

Next, Congress should unilaterally defund sanctuary cities and tie Kate’s Law to next week’s spending resolution. If the Democrats object to enforcing federal immigration law, if they threaten a government shutdown to stop an effort to prevent another American death at the hands of a deported illegal immigrant, let them.

Let them attempt to defend their indefensible destruction of America.

Today’s Ann Coulter Letter: Yes, Virginia, Immigration Is Turning The Country Blue


Commentary by Ann Coulter  | 

Hey, Republicans! Did you enjoy Election Night last week? Get ready for a lot more nights like that as immigration turns every last corner of the country blue. 

When Ed Gillespie lost in Virginia, liberals crowed about how they’re winning the war of ideas. The country has thoroughly, emphatically rejected Trumpism!  Republicans, being idiots, played along, arguing only about whether Gillespie’s problem was that he didn’t embrace Trump enough or embraced him too much.

Gillespie’s campaign was fine. No cleverer arguments, community outreach or perfectly timed mailings would have changed the result. Contrary to The New York Times’ celebratory article in last Sunday’s magazine, “How the ‘Resistance’ Helped Democrats Dominate Virginia,” it wasn’t Democratic operative Kathryn Sorenson’s savvy use of Facebook, Google and Eventbrites that carried the day. “The Resistance” didn’t win.

What happened was: Democrats brought in new voters. In 1970, only one out of every 100 Virginians was foreign-born. By 2012, one in nine Virginians was foreign-born.

The foreign-born vote overwhelmingly, by about 80 percent, for Democrats. They always have and they always will — especially now that our immigration policies aggressively discriminate in favor of the poorest, least-educated, most unskilled people on Earth. They arrive in need of a LOT of government services.

According to the Pew Research Center, 75 percent of Hispanic immigrants and 55 percent of Asian immigrants support bigger government, compared to just over 40 percent of the general public. Even third-generation Hispanics support bigger government by 58 percent.

Polls show that immigrants are far more likely to support Obamacare and affirmative action than the general public, and are far less likely to support gun rights and capitalism.

It’s one thing not to mention ethnic differences in crime statistics or welfare usage to avoid hurting anyone’s feelings, but if the GOP continues to pretend to see no difference in how different groups vote — while importing millions more foreigners to vote against them — then they should get used to a lot more elections like what happened in Virginia last week.

It’s not as if Republicans are unaware of how demographics can affect elections. They certainly notice when they’re drawing congressional boundaries. We don’t see GOP congressmen saying, No, I don’t mind trading that all-white town for part of a Chicago housing project. Why should I?

Currently, everyone seems to be blaming the total disappearance of the GOP in Virginia on another demographic trend: All those federal workers living in the northern part of the state.

This is a fairy tale, like the one about Proposition 187 turning California blue, or the one about the “complacency of old money” turning Connecticut blue, or the one about a disorganized Republican Party turning Illinois blue. Pay no attention to the millions of Third-Worlders we’ve been dumping on the country!

In the past 40 years, upward of 50 million culturally backward, dirt-poor immigrants arrived in America, and state after state has gone blue, but we’re always told states are flipping to the Democrats for some reason — any reason! — other than immigration.

True, Virginia is home to 322,198 people who are either current or retired federal employees. On the other hand, there are more than 800,000 Virginians who are foreign-born — and that’s not including the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the foreign-born who arrived in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

Moreover, in Virginia, “federal employee” is not as Democratic-leaning as it sounds on account of the state’s numerous military bases. Virginia Beach, for example, the largest city in the state, has a higher percentage of federal employees in the workforce than the entire Washington, D.C., metro area. And yet, Virginia Beach still votes Republican in presidential elections and is represented by a Republican in Congress.

Almost 15 percent of Virginians speak a language other than English at home. If we double the number of Virginians who are now employed by, or have ever worked for, the federal government — and assume that none of them work on military bases — that’s still just 8 percent of the population.

The only reason Democrats want a never-ending stream of Third World immigrants is because they know immigrants will help them win elections, allowing The New York Times to write self-congratulatory editorials like this one last week: “Virginia Rejects Your Hateful Politics, Mr. Trump.”

Well, technically, millions of Third-Worlders living in Virginia rejected Trump’s “hateful politics.” But guess what? They also rejected John McCain’s pusillanimous politics and Mitt Romney’s soft-spoken politics.

They were brought in to vote for the Democrats. That’s the real job immigrants are doing that Americans just won’t do.

As Democratic consultant Patrick Reddy wrote for the Roper Center 20 years ago, the 1965 Immigration Act, bringing in “a wave of immigration from the Third World,” will go down in history as “the Kennedy family’s greatest gift to the Democratic Party.”

There isn’t much time on the clock before it’s lights-out for the GOP. And all Republicans can think to do is argue about how quickly to grant amnesty to so-called “Dreamers” and give the Democrats another 30 million voters.
