Dear CNN: Illegal Immigrant Kills Cop On Christmas Day – Is That ‘News?’


Written by Wes Walker on December 28, 2018

A legal immigrant spent Christmas day apart from his wife and kid, to serve and protect… only to be gunned down by an illegal immigrant.

Does anything explain where Left and Right divide on the issue of immigration in starker terms than this sad tale?

Newman’s police chief broke down in tears while describing what happened to Officer Ronil Singh, who moved here from Fiji lawfully with dreams of being a cop.

Here’s a family photo, taken just hours before his death.

What makes this story all the more tragic was that he was working an overtime shift and responding to a DUI call. Singh was murdered by an illegal immigrant who fled the scene. Singh radioed for help and returned fire, but help arrived too late.

Governor Jerry Brown issued a statement after the shooting.

“On behalf of all Californians, Anne (Brown’s wife) and I extend our condolences to Corp. Singh’s wife, young son, loved ones and colleagues,” Brown said. “Our hearts are with the entire community of Newman and law enforcement officers across the state who risk their lives every day to protect and serve the people of California.”

Newman is a small city off Interstate 5 north of Los Banos. Singh had been a police officer there since 2011. He was married and the father of a 5-month-old son.

Governor Moonbeam should sit this one out. One of the illegal immigrants he works so VERY hard to advocate for and defend just murdered a LAWFUL immigrant who arrived the way Trump and his supporters want ALL immigrants to come into the country.

Isn’t this story exactly what the government ‘shutdown’ showdown is all about in the first place?

Trump wants everyone coming to America to come through what he metaphorically described as a ‘big very beautiful door’ in that wall. Trump just wants a wall there to keep out the miserable bastards who gun down good cops at traffic stops.

Schumer and Nancy WANT those miserable bastards to come in unopposed. Trump does not.

Is this really so hard to understand?

Does Jesus Believe in Immigration Restrictions? Absolutely

In the kingdom of the age to come, documentation is required, a profession of allegiance is required, the borders are patrolled, and intruders are expelled.

– Bryan Fischer; Host of “Focal Point” Connect FollowMore Articles

We have heard endless bloviation from media types who have spent their entire journalistic careers in open hostility to Christianity suddenly pontificating about how un-Christian it is to build walls and restrict immigration to the United States. Why, we’re told, that’s not something Jesus would do! He himself was a refugee! How can you call yourself a Christian and not believe in letting anybody and everybody in? That’s what Jesus would do!

Now we know that people who think and talk like this are wrong. When Jesus came to Earth, he did not come as a immigrationrefugee. He came as the rightful king, intent on reclaiming what had been stolen from him by the Prince of Darkness. When his parents took him to Egypt as a child, they didn’t go as refugees but as exiles who returned to their homeland as soon as they could. When his parents took him to Bethlehem, they didn’t go as refugees, they went as hard-working taxpayers doing their civic duty.

Biblically we know that there is a legitimate place for walls, for physical barriers designed for protection. God sent Nehemiah to Jerusalem to build one around the city to keep the bad guys out. We know that immigration bans under the right circumstances are appropriate, for God permanently banned immigration from the neighboring nations of Ammon and Moab because of their historic and implacable hostility to Israel. 

But we know that building walls and using immigration restrictions are legitimate policies because Jesus will use them in his own kingdom. (I am indebted to my good friend Jeff Reed for this idea, but don’t blame him for anything in what follows that you don’t like. That’s on me.)

The Scriptures tell us that the eternal city of his coming kingdom will be surrounded by “a great high wall with twelve gates” (Revelation 21:12), each guarded by an angel so undocumented intruders cannot enter. Identification papers will be scrutinized carefully before anyone is allowed to enter through one of the great big beautiful doors that are built in this wall that surrounds the city. In John’s vision, “books were opened,” and “if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life” he was not only not admitted but “thrown into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:12; 15). Talk about extreme vetting and deportation.

Only those who “wash their robes” in the shed blood of Christ will be allowed to “enter the city by its gates” (Revelation 22:14). Those who refuse to adopt the values of the eternal city will remain outside its walls. “Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood” (Revelation 22:15). In other words, cultural assimilation will not be optional for someone who desires a place in this coming kingdom. 

Immigration controls will be stout, and deportation for those without proper documentation will be enforced. The king will apprehend those who try to sneak in and pass themselves off as citizens when they are not, and say to them, “Depart from me, you workers of lawlessness” (Matthew 7:23).

How do would-be immigrants get their names written in this register, this book of life, so that they will be admitted through the gates on that day? How do they get the visa, if you will, that entitles them to enter the kingdom of God? 

“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household” (Acts 16:31). All prior allegiances must be renounced, and Jesus must be acknowledged as their new sovereign. They must accept him not just as Savior but as Lord. Once they do, their citizenship is granted, their passport is stamped, and they are welcomed to their new kingdom. This citizenship process is open to anyone in the world, anywhere, at any time. 

We have my great-grandfather’s immigration documents hanging on the wall of our living room. In order for him to become a citizen of the United States, it was necessary for him to “renounce forever all allegiance and fidelity to all and any foreign Prince, Potentate, State and Sovereignty whatever, and particularly to the Czar of Russia, of whom I was a subject.” Then he was required to declare his new allegiance to a new source of ultimate political authority, the Constitution of the United States.

The earthly process of becoming a citizen of the United States is a parable, a reflection, a shadow, of the process of becoming a citizen of the eternal kingdom. Perhaps God even intended it to be just that, and we cloud the picture when we make foolish changes to sound immigration policy. To be sure, it’s a shadow only, since the eternal kingdom is perfect and America is not. 

In the kingdom of the age to come, documentation is required, a profession of allegiance is required, the borders are patrolled, and intruders are expelled. If that’s how Christ governs his heavenly kingdom, earthly kingdoms can be governed in the same way.

Does Christ believe in immigration control and border security? Of course. And if he does, it’s okay for the United States to believe in them too.

And the ultimate lesson for readers of this column is this: be sure you have your visa in hand because no one knows when the day of ultimate migration will come.immigration

70% of Americans Say ‘No More Immigration’

Although 51 percent of Americans think immigrants strengthen the country, an overwhelming majority of Americans do not want to see obama-border-is-open-378x257immigration levels increase, according to a new Pew poll. Just 24 percent of those polled said the U.S. should increase the number of legal immigrants allowed into the country, while 70 percent said the level of immigration should decrease or remain the same. Six percent said they didn’t know. (RELATED: Media Ignores Evidence Americans Want To REDUCE Legal Immigration)

The share of those who believe immigrants strengthen the country by their hard work and talents dropped from a high of 57 percent last year to a small majority of 51 percent this year. And the share of those who believe immigrants are a burden on the economy rose from 35 to 41 percent. The declining share of Americans who view immigrants unfavorably holds across party lines, although most Democrats and Independents still believe they strengthen the country.Only Reason

The share of Republicans who believe immigrants strengthen the country dropped sharply from about 45 percent in 2013 to just 27 percent this year. The share of Democrats who view immigrants favorably dropped a few points to 62 percent, and the share of Independents dropped slightly to 57 percent.

Scott Walker and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum are the only 2016 candidates talking about slowing the rate of legal immigration into the country, for the sake of American workers.

Nearly one in five U.S. residents will be an immigrant by 2060, largely because of legal immigration, not illegal immigration, a Center for Immigration Studies analysis of the Census data found. And immigrants will account for 82 percent of population growth in the U.S. from 2010 through 2060.

The Pew Research Center polled 2,002 adults May 12-18, with a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percentage points.

Study: Mideast Immigrants to US Pose Huge Security Threat


 

Posted By Todd Beamon, Thursday, 25 Sep 2014

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://www.Newsmax.com/Newsfront/Muslim-immigrants-security-threat/2014/09/24/id/596742/#ixzz3OGjmWZWh

A new study shows that the number of immigrants in the United States jumped 3 percent in three years — to a record 41.3 million in 2013 — and that the nearly 300,000 who came from Muslim countries pose a major national security threat, the report’s co-author told Newsmax on Thursday.

“All of that does raise national security concerns, and I don’t think there has been any consideration of that,” said Steven Camarota, research director for the Center for Immigration Studies. The Washington-based nonprofit organization released the study on Thursday. It is based on an analysis of Census data from 2010 to last year. Camarota conducted the study and co-authored it with CIS demographer Karen Zeigler.

“The primary threat from a group like ISIS to the homeland is through our immigration system,” Camarota said, referring to the Islamic State terrorist group that has beheaded three Westerners in recent weeks.

“No one’s suggesting that they’re going to launch a missile and hit New York, but rather they’re going to board an airliner and blow it up,” he added. “They’re going to park a car in a public place, they’re going to go on a shooting spree, or any one of those things.
Our immigration system is a vital part of national security. Everybody doesn’t seem to recognize that,” Camarota said. “The question is, what are the implications of our rapidly growing Middle Eastern population? The numbers certainly raise it.”

The CIS report shows that the United States was home to a record 41.3 million legal and illegal immigrants last year. That was up nearly 1.4 million from the 39.9 million in 2010, while the number was 31.1 million in 2000.com01
By comparison, the U.S. immigrant population stood at 9.6 million in 1970. About 16 percent of the U.S. population last year was foreign-born, whether in the country legally or illegally, according to the data. That’s about one in eight residents, or one of every six adults.  “Those numbers reflect two basic facts: an extremely high level of legal immigration, a very permissive legal immigration system — and they also reflect a failure to control illegal immigration,” Camarota said.Resist AmnestyM13 Gang Members
 “Somewhere between a fourth and a third of those immigrants are here illegally.”

The largest number of immigrants in the United States are Mexicans, with more than 11.5 million living here illegally and legally last year. The number of Mexican immigrants fell by 126,126 — or 1 percent — over the period because of some dying and others leaving the country, Camarota said.

According to the study, the Middle Eastern population grew by 207,758 in the period, or 13 percent, to more than 1.8 million last year. That compared with 1.6 million in 2010 and 1.1 million in 2000. Leading the growth from that region was Saudi Arabia, with 43,878 immigrants — nearly double the number who were in the U.S. in 2010. The analysis shows that 88,894 Saudis lived in this country last year. Iraq was next, with about 41,094 immigrants, for a 26 percent increase to a total of 200, 894. But the total number of immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries totaled 295,743 in the period, according to the CIS study. That was up by 13.5 percent.com02against AmericaObama Muslim collection
The total number of immigrants from primarily Muslim countries in the U.S. was more than 2.4 million last year, compared with 2.1 million in 2010 and 1.5 million in 2000. Camarota attributed the rise in Mideast immigration to myriad U.S. policies, whether they granted asylum or refugee status to people from the region or involved the nation’s defense forces.

“Once there is a presence, the possibility of going to the United States becomes a much more realistic possibility,” he said. “The presence of the United States in a country in a big way, whether it’s Afghanistan or Iraq, tends to spur immigration.” Overall, however, the Middle East is only fourth among regions of the world from where people emigrate to the U.S.

The leader is south Asia, which was up 372,546, or 16 percent, to 2.7 million; east Asia, up 364,909, or 5 percent, to 7.8 million; and the Caribbean, up 223,011, or 6 percent, to more than 3.9 million immigrants. China is No. 1 in east Asia, with 217,305 people coming from that country in the period, or 10 percent, for a total of 2.3 million last year. India is the leader in south Asia, with 254,355, or 14 percent, to more than 2 million. More people came to the U.S. from the Dominican Republic than any other Caribbean country, with 111,859, or 13 percent, to a total of 991,046 last year. From Central America — the nexus of the border crisis that has led to hundreds of thousands of illegals, especially minors traveling alone, crossing the Rio Grande into south Texas in recent months — the number of immigrants jumped by 113,744, or 3.7 percent, over the three years.obama-border-is-open-378x257

The number of immigrants from the region in the U.S. surpassed 3.1 million last year. The biggest number, 71,469, came from Guatemala. That marked an 8.6 percent surge, for a total of 902,293. Next was El Salvador, up 3.1 percent, or 38,018; and then Honduras, up 2.1 percent, or 11,017, to a total of 533,598.

“It just reminds us of how enormous the immigrant population is and what a large share of the population it is,” Camarota told Newsmax.

The data added yet another dimension to the immigration debate as President Barack Obama considers what executive actions he will announce after the November congressional elections.Imperial President ObamaAfter a high-profile Rose Garden ceremony in May in which he vowed to act unilaterally on immigration because of the continued stalemate in Congress, Obama did an about-face earlier this month and said he would postpone any action until after the elections out of fears that his moves could cause Democrats to lose the Senate.

“What he is still considering after the election is not just the legalization of illegal immigrants on his own, but substantial increases in legal immigration on his own,” Camarota said. “He’s going to reinterpret the law that, for the last 20 years, everyone has thought imposed some caps on green cards and other measures. He’s going to say those caps don’t exist, which would make those numbers higher. To accelerate these numbers even further, that’s something there should be a long national debate about,” Camarota continued. “It’s something that’s very hard to argue that the president should just be able to do on his own.”

A senior Republican aide also highlighted the national security concerns posed by the CIS study.

“This report confronts Congress with important national security and community safety questions,” the aide told Newsmax. “We can’t let our immigration system, like that of the U.K.’s, be used as a vehicle for jihadism and growing pockets of radicalism spreading in our own towns.” AMEN

Conservative Activist: Obama-Loving Liberals are Too-Far Gone to Have Rational Discussions

obama-border-is-open-378x257All across America, there remains a divide amongst Americans. Democrats continue to push for amnesty for illegal immigrants, moderate Republicans seek permission to cave to Democrat demands and Tea Partiers and other assorted conservatives who value the rule of law demand a plan to halt illegal immigration- a plan that does not reward those who came here in violation of our laws. 
 
On Thursday, TPNN’s Tim Constantine spoke Dutch Martin of the black conservative group, Project 21, and discussed the debate raging over illegal immigration in America.
 
Martin is married to an immigrant who immigrated to the United States legally and blasted the Obama Administration and those calling for Immigration-Piperblanket amnesty, saying, “[They’re] spitting on my wife’s naturalization certificate and every other foreign-born naturalized citizen who played by the rules and became legal residents and naturalized American citizens. It’s basically a slap in the face to them.”
 
Martin explained that his wife was furious when she discovered that Obama hopes to grant amnesty to those who came here illegally. “They should play by the rules like I did,” Martin recalled her saying. Martin noted that his wife, who served as a paralegal and with suburb professional qualifications, had to jump through hoops to immigrate legally as the Obama Administration welcomes in gang members and other nefarious types from Central and South America.
 
Constantine explained that he was a staunch supporter of legal immigration, but Martin countered that when one tries to explain the distinction, it’s a non-starter for liberals who are guided by zealotry and blind dogma.
 
“You’re trying to have a rational discussion with liberals. I would rather bang by head up against a brick wall rather than try to have a rational discussion with liberals… because you cannot, I repeat, you cannot reason with them. They are zombies; they are so drunk off [Obama’s} Kool-Aid, it’s repulsive.”Never Argue Group
