No More Amnesties

Vox Day:

The law is clear, the principle is settled, the American people have been burned by such amnesties before and they are not going to accept another one, no matter how many sob stories about “Dreamers” are waved like red flags before the public.

Damn right. Don’t think that photos of 5-year-old kids with big, soulful brown eyes matter any more. We’re beyond that now. It’s a matter of whether we have a right to survive as a nation.

Day continues:

However, if there is one thing that is clear about Donald Trump, it is that he is capable of learning from his mistakes.

Agreed, and thank God.

His base needs to be very clear about the fact that failing to keep his word on DACA is not acceptable.

Quite. Hey Donald: We love you… but we’re watching.


President Trump, NEVER Cave In on Immigration

Mr. President, this is our last chance to save the country. At least, it is our last chance to save it without literal civil war. It will require a political fight, maybe the most hard-fought political fight in this country of the last 100 years. You must hold fast on all measures pertaining to immigration. This will involve fighting it out, not bluffing your opponents. They won’t be bluffed, they won’t cave in: They really want to destroy this country. So we’ll have to actually fight it out and win, not convince them to yield concessions. Nor will they hesitate to use absolutely any tactic, including blatant outright lying.

Any concession that you think you’ve gotten from them will be a lie. It will be just like the 1986 “deal”:
“Give us an amnesty today, and we promise we’ll start strict border enforcement tomorrow.”

Americans had an amnesty inflicted on them, but never got the enforcement.

The fate of our great nation depends on your not believing anything that Democrats, or treasonous Republicans, tell you about this.

On the subject of Leftist lying about immigration “deals,” here are two recent essays by the incomparable Ann Coulter. Both are short and it’s easy to read them straight through. Some key passages:

We Made Donald %#&@ Trump PRESIDENT — What Else Can We Do?

We already tried amnesty once. The 1986 amnesty under Reagan was supposed to be a one-time fix. We’d forgive the estimated 1 million illegal aliens living here and, in exchange, draconian measures would be imposed on any employer ever caught hiring an illegal again — up to a $10,000 fine per illegal and jail time for repeat offenders.

We never got the employer sanctions.

There weren’t 1 million illegals — it was 4 million.

It wasn’t a one-time fix. In another real-world example of “incentives,” the first amnesty led to a never-ending stream of illegals across our border, confident of getting in on the next amnesty. Today, there are at least 40 million illegals living in the U.S. (Eleven million is nonsense — they’ve been claiming that since the 1980s…)

We’re told the DACA amnesty will apply only to a very small, discrete group of unbelievably fantastic illegals — who melt Ivanka’s heart by refilling her water glass at Cipriani with such alacrity! [Yes, Coulter’s being sarcastic here, Mr. President, but she’s right: We cannot make these decisions based on emotional considerations. And it’s not reciprocated: The people who are flooding into our country don’t have any such tender notions about us.]

Not only that, but there will be strict requirements on who qualifies for a DACA amnesty.

None of which will ever be enforced.

…Every politician swears up and down that he wants a “secure border.” But then these same politicians go absolutely berserk when Trump says he wants to build a wall.

They say we’ll get enforcement right after the amnesty. That’s obviously absurd… As long as both political parties stoutly refuse to build the wall, we know they are not serious about ever stopping illegal immigration. (Luckily, the Constitution gives the commander in chief full authority to protect our borders, with or without congressional approval.)

We know what happened after the Reagan amnesty. We know politicians and the media are lying to us.

The second piece:


To see how DACA will actually work, let’s look at another extremely limited amnesty that was passed in 1986.

Farmers wanted temporary guest-worker permits for their cheap labor, so that they could continue pretending that the Industrial Revolution never happened and refuse to mechanize… The agricultural amnesty was supposed to apply to — at most — 350,000 illegal aliens. It would be available only to illegals who were currently in the country…

In the end, “up to 350,000 farm workers” turned into 1.3 million…

This innocent little amnesty for a small, clearly defined group of illegals quickly became amnesty for anyone who applied. The same thing will happen with any other amnesty, no matter how strictly the law is written. (And it won’t be written strictly.)

In the first few years of the agricultural amnesty, internal Immigration and Naturalization Service statistics showed that 888,637 legalization applications were fraudulent. According to immigration agents, “farm workers” stated in their interviews that cotton was purple or that they had pulled cherries from the ground.

Of the 888,637 fraudulent applications, guess how many our government approved. Answer: More than 800,000.

The agricultural amnesty was so carefully administered that not one, but TWO of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers were in this country because of it.

…The main problem with the farm worker amnesty, the DACA amnesty or any amnesty is that everyone involved in the entire immigration apparatus is feverishly working, on the taxpayer’s dime, to transform this country into a Third World hellhole.

…For two decades after the 1986 amnesty, the federal courts were tied up with dozens of class-action lawsuits brought on behalf of illegal aliens — regular illegal aliens, farm worker illegal aliens and still-in-Mexico illegal aliens — challenging every aspect of the law.

…Lawyers sued over everything — the absence of Creole interpreters, the requirement that illegals have proof of prior farm work and the rare denials of amnesty… Left-wing lawyers just had to pick the right judge, and they won.

In 2005 — nearly 20 years after the 1986 amnesty — the Ninth Circuit was still granting amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who claimed they had been unfairly denied because they were not in the country for the first amnesty. Seriously.

No matter how the law is written, as long as anyone is eligible for amnesty, everybody’s getting amnesty.

President Trump is the last president who will ever have a chance to make the right decision on immigration. After this, it’s over. The boat will have sailed.

If he succeeds, all the p@ssy-grabbing and Russia nonsense will burn off like a morning fog. He will be the president who saved the American nation, its character, its sovereignty, its core identity. But if he fails, Donald Trump will go down in history as the man who killed America.

Hungary Bills EU for Border Fence

Hungary sends the EU a bill for their border fence:

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has been something of a thorn in the side of the EU for quite a while now when it comes to the refugee crisis and questions over terrorism and illegal immigration. While most of the rest of the union has been bending over backwards to keep pace with Angela Merkel’s plans for unlimited immigration and open borders, Hungary has taken a hard line in keeping the illegal migrants out. This has led the EU to recently consider imposing penalties on Hungary for their failure to get with the program.

Orban came up with an even better response of his own. He just sent the European Union a bill for $476 million to cover half the cost of the razor wire fence he put up to keep the flow of immigrants out.

Not only is it perfectly just to present the EU with a bill, given EU “mandates” about immigration, and good politics, it also has the benefit of going on the offensive. Always being on the offensive is indeed the strategy the left used against us the last 50 years, and it certainly has worked for them. As Anon Conserv comments:

The more you go on the attack with the left, the more the left is trapped by having to repel your attack, and the less energy they have to insist on their own initiatives. As Donald insists on making Mexico pay for the wall and deports illegals at a record pace, the left finds itself forced to fight those initiatives, hoping to just diminish the success of one. While they are doing that, they are not lobbying to let illegals vote in our elections, or seek a path to citizenship.

Non-US Citizen Invites Illegal Immigrants into the US

Justin Wolfers, Australian citizen teaching at the University of Michigan:

“My message to #Dreamers at @umich is simple: Welcome to class.”

says the Australian living in the US. According to Wikipedia, his nationality is simply Australian; he didn’t even bother to get dual US-Australian citizenship before he started inviting people to illegally enter our country.

My message to Justin Wolfers: Go fuck yourself.

Then go back to your office, scratch your head, and wonder why Trump won.

American Bar Association: Let Illegals Practice Law

American Bar Association passes resolution urging the permitting of illegal immigrants to practice law:

“RESOLVED, That the American Bar Association supports the principle that bar admission should not be denied based solely on immigration status.”

Action is Argument

We are accustomed to thinking that our arguments support our positions. That we marshal the facts, our dialectic, and our rhetoric, and these things support our proposals. And that’s true, as far as it goes.

But also, action is its own kind of rhetoric, its own kind of argument.

And President Trump, a master rhetoritician, understands this.

It goes like this:

First, action is a kind of argument because it demonstrates that certain things are done, are normal, are within the bounds of our society. Enforcing immigration law is a good example. Enforcing immigration law doesn’t just get illegals out of our country. It also demonstrates that enforcing immigration law is something that is done. Indeed, it is even something that is done by a democratically elected President. Imagine.

This is one of the reasons that the Left is so freaked out by President Trump’s actions on immigration. They are aware of the propaganda value of action. (They should be; propaganda is one of the few items in their core skill set.)

Second, it encourages one’s comrades when one takes successful action. In the case of President Trump, it energizes his base and contributes to morale. One actual accomplishment is worth more than any number of written essays – even if every person were to read them. It’s encouraging to win!

And again, this is another reason the Left has flipped their shit about this particular President. He doesn’t just want to save the country; he is taking action to do so. That by itself would be devastating for the Left, but the actions also matter not only in themselves, but for reasons of rhetoric and persuasion. Actions shift the Overton Window.

No wonder they’re in a panic terror. They simply can’t allow a normal four years of this. Four years of President Trump will undo decades of Leftist subversion. Imagine four years of actually enforcing, and strengthening, immigration law! Imagine that being normalized! (As it should be!) Leftists lie almost constantly, but one of the honest things they started saying after the election was “We cannot allow Trump to be normalized.” In that, at least, they were honestly saying what they were feeling and thinking. Almost everything President Trump does is not only a tactical and strategic defeat for the Left, but a propaganda and persuasion defeat.

President Trump: No Welfare for Recent Immigrants

First, in case you’re wondering why this is necessary:

PROBLEM: Los Angeles Spent $1.3 Billion On Welfare Payments to Illegals In Two Years!

Illegal immigrant families received nearly $1.3 billion in Los Angeles County welfare money during 2015 and 2016, nearly one-quarter of the amount spent on the county’s entire needy population, according to data obtained by Fox News.

SOLUTION: No Immigrant Welfare for First Five Years

Days after announcing his support to a merit-based immigration system, President Donald Trump has said that migrants will not get welfare in the first five years after they arrive in the US.

“You cannot get welfare for five years when you come into our country. You can’t just come in, like in past weeks, years and decades–you come in, immediately start picking up welfare,” Trump said in his weekly web and radio address to the nation…

The importance of this can hardly be overstated. The beneficial effect of reducing the tax burden of real Americans paying for this crap is only one thing. Potentially much more important, as Anon Conserv notes, is the effect on those contemplating invading us, I mean, immigrating. If you were planning on coming here for some of that yummy freebie goodness paid for by other people, you now will say, “Not worth it.”

See how Trump is serious about all this. The increased enforcement of immigration law is the stick. And he’s taking away the carrot. He really wants to solve this problem and save the country.

Bless him, bless him, bless him.
