Immigration Bill--Dead On Arrival? Or, Future Of America?

Yesterday, the New York Times was making the case that we should---we "must" pass this new so-called "bi-partisan" immigration bill.

We need to take a hard, clear look at this bill that President Biden and his enablers claim will fix the border problem, thus fixing America.


Our blessed country hangs in the balance.

Be informed, not misled.

The New York Times said yesterday, "The United States has had a porous border with Mexico for decades, and the situation has worsened in the past few years, with more than 10,000 people entering the U.S. on some days. Many then remain for years, even without a visa or citizenship. Mayors, governors, and immigration experts — as well as voters — have long urged Congress to fix the problem."

The current crisis, then, is not really a crisis; it's "normal," and this administration has brought together a bipartisan group to support the president in fixing what has been happening for a long time.

The NYT continues: "This week, a bipartisan group of senators released a plan for doing so. And for anybody who has grown cynical about Washington, the plan offered reasons for both surprise and further cynicism."

"The surprising part is that productive bipartisanship seems to be alive, even on an issue as divisive as immigration. A wide range of experts say that the Senate plan — negotiated by James Lankford, an Oklahoma Republican; Chris Murphy, a Connecticut Democrat; and Kyrsten Sinema, an Arizona independent — would strengthen border security and reduce illegal immigration."

The Times continues, explaining, "The measure has the support of business lobbying groups as well as the organization representing the mayors of every U.S. city with a population above 30,000. The labor union for border patrol agents, which endorsed Donald Trump in 2020, supports the plan. So do the editorial boards of The Washington Post, which leans left, and The Wall Street Journal, which is deeply conservative."

Deception. The Washington Post does not "lean Left"; it represents the extreme leftist ideologies in our country.

The Times article goes on to make the case for the "bill," concluding, "Republicans are against immigration reform."

The truth.

B.L. Hahn, writing in the Federalist yesterday, said, "The much-anticipated Senate border bill unveiled this week is another example of the destructive and unserious people who lead this nation. President Biden and Democrats are now blaming Republicans for failing to pass the bill, but the reality is that for the “open borders” Democrat Party, everything is going according to plan."

The Democrat Party is well on its way to fundamentally changing America’s demographics, all to secure what they believe will eventually become an unbeatable coalition of new voters. To understand the progress they’ve made, consider that in 2018, research conducted at MIT and Yale determined that the most accurate population estimate of illegal aliens residing in the U.S. was 22.1 million. Given the staggering surge of illegal aliens under the Biden administration, that estimate would now be in the range of 30-plus million. To put that into perspective, if we created a 51st state comprised entirely of illegal aliens, its population would be larger than every state except California, and it would be 77 percent of the entire population of Canada.

Going forward, even if we somehow prevent 100 percent of future illegal immigration, it only buys us time — and not much. Democrats know this, of course. It’s why they continue to accept short-term backlash from our open border in exchange for a long-term payoff. By pointing out that illegal aliens cannot vote, the left claims that this whole thing is a “racist conspiracy theory.”

This disingenuous tactic ignores three things: 1) Democrats have routinely tried to pass some type of amnesty that would eventually allow illegal aliens to vote, 2) Children of illegal aliens born in the U.S. can legally vote when they turn 18, and 3) In 2020, Joe Biden carried Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona by a total of about 45,000 votes, meaning a presidential election could be decided by only 0.15 percent of the illegal alien population voting in the right states.

Two of these three points are hypotheticals — amnesty and illegal aliens voting — but the other is a mathematical certainty. Children are the future, and this is where the left has placed its chips. Assuming we can prevent amnesty from passing while magically stopping all approximately 30 million illegals from voting in perpetuity, children born to illegal aliens are turning 18 every year in tranches. Unless there is a titanic shift in voting demographics, each tranche makes it more difficult for Republicans to win elections. Democrats don’t need to pass amnesty. They don’t need illegal aliens to vote. They just need to wait it out. 

The cost.

Illegal immigration is wreaking havoc on our hospitals, schools, housing, public lands, and budgets while facilitating a drug epidemic that kills scores of Americans. Savvy New York City Mayor Eric Adams has helped craft a plan to dissuade more illegals from coming. The solution? Spoil them rotten.

New York City, under the direction of Mayor Eric Adams, is set to begin a $53 million program that will give illegal immigrant families who have arrived in the Big Apple a prepaid credit card.

The cards will be refilled every 28 days, and families have to sign an affidavit promising to spend the credit card funds only on food and baby supplies. Funds on the credit cards will vary depending on the size of the family, but a family of four could receive up to $1,000 a month, according to the Post.

The Immediate Response Card program, which will be run by New Jersey company Mobility Capital Finance, will begin by giving around 500 illegal immigrant families a credit card to pay for food, The New York Post reported. The pilot program will replace the food service offered to them at the short-term shelter set up at the Roosevelt Hotel.

The illegals are complaining because the food the city has been providing for them is "horrible."

The Post spotted several migrant families arriving back at the Roosevelt Hotel hauling Cheetos, Hawaiian punch, English muffins, and bags full of groceries this week.

Mom, Alexandra Salas — who has been staying at the Roosevelt for seven months — said she, too, won’t feed her kids the cold meals.

“The breakfast and lunch is so cold we can’t eat it, so it gets thrown in the trash,” she said.  

“They serve sandwiches for lunch, but they are freezing cold.”

Many are complaining that the food is not nutritious enough. 

It comes after internal company records obtained by the New York Times revealed one company who serves meals to migrants across the city had to trash more than 70,000 “wasted” migrant meals between October 22 and November 22.

DocGo — who do not provide food for The Roosevelt Hotel where hundreds of the migrants are housed— was awarded a $432 million no-bid contract by the city to help with migrant services.


Hahn says, "For these reasons [including a refusal to assimalate] and more, the next president must mobilize the federal government to deport as many illegal aliens as possible, beginning with violent criminals and the most recent arrivals. Our asylum system, which is scammed by millions of foreign nationals, must be scrapped, and we need a southern border wall."

"Our current trajectory is not sustainable, and while the task will be difficult, it is far better than watching the greatest civilization that’s ever existed go down the drain because we didn’t want to be perceived as “mean.”

It is not righteous or morally defensible to destroy our nation because we don’t want to inconvenience people who break our laws by coming here illegally. We must become a nation that enforces its most basic and necessary feature — its borders.  

This is both biblical and ethical.
