Unsurprisingly, the Spanish-language media does not like the RAISE Act
(and its companion in the House
). A recent unsigned piece in La Opinión
, the largest Spanish-language newspaper
in the U.S., tells us “Trump wants to end the principle which founded this great nation” and features a scowling, finger-pointing Trump [La nueva guerra migratoria de Donald Trump afectará a todos en EEUU—
“ Donald Trump’s New Migratory Will Affect Everybody in the United States,” December 15, 2017.]
It claims Trump is about to attack a “new victim.”
And who is this victim? “That’s chain migration
, which permits relatives of naturalized immigrants to eventually obtain legal residence
and later their citizenship in the United States.”
The paper warns Trump is preparing an “intense media campaign to influence public opinion and congress with the single goal of ending the immigration system based on the family.”
I hope the paper is right. It’s certainly a more important goal than the tax bill
gives the game away when it tries to denounce the president’s preferred policy.
Trump’s idea is to reverse the migratory policy that has converted the United States into a nation of immigrants. His idea is that the United States only be a nation of the best, based on an elitist immigration system of points that, according to him, would favor education and employment.
Let’s not promote education and employment! That would be unjust or something. Besides, aren’t boosters
of Latin American immigration always telling us how economically beneficial Latinos
are to the United States and how we can’t live without them?La Opinión
The government is assembling data to reinforce the argument that the current legal immigration system not only is wrong but that it is dangerous to the security of the United States and for the country’s workers.
This country’s security and its workers
are not high priorities
for La Opinión
knows what is at stake here. Chain migration
is, to put it bluntly, the mechanism by which this country is being transformed demographically. Expect the paper and other Hispanic activists to fight any threat to chain migration to the death.Illegal Mexicans Have To Go Back—After THIRTY Years!La Opinión
has just reported the deportation of a Mexican illegal alien couple—after almost thirty years.
Better late than never.
A Mexican couple who had resided 30 years in the United States was deported this Friday [December 8th] to their country. [Los 30 años de esta pareja mexicana en EEUU no los salvó de la deportación, —“This Mexican couple’s 30 years in the United States did not save them from deportation,” December 9, 2017]
“Their country.” Exactly. Mexico is their country.
The paper mourns all their time in America was “worth nothing because this Friday… they left the United States from Newark Airport, to Mexico City.”
Why was the time here “worth nothing?” Presumably they made a lot of money and had their children educated by the American taxpayer
. Are they not going to thank America for allowing them to live here illegally for almost three decades?
The sob story quotes Oscar Campos’s last words to “friends and family who accompanied them to bid them farewell.” But don’t worry. The couple is leaving behind its three anchor babies
—“all American citizens,” as the paper gloats.
Once again, we need to immediately abolish automatic birthright citizenship
for children of illegal aliens.
They [the couple] emphasized that “there are many good people, don’t be discouraged and keep fighting.”
Good advice for immigration patriots too .La Opinión
says “the reasons for” the couple’s deportation “have not been specified.” Just a guess—but It could be because they are illegal aliens
. Campos entered the U.S. in 1989. VDARE.COM has many readers who weren’t even born then.
NJ.com suggests the Campos couple went through some kind of process with ICE in order to stay. Senator Cory Booker
even lobbied on the family’s behalf. But the law is the law and they were finally deported [Despite pleas, couple in U.S. for 30 years deported to Mexico,
by Bill Gallo Jr., December 8, 2017]
I can sympathize at a personal level. But they made choices, and finally those choices have caught up with them.
On a national level, illegal immigration has been tolerated
for so long that there’s no easy way to put an end to it. But it must be ended—if our country is to survive.New Book Tells Illegals Reasons They Might Get Deported
Illegal aliens and especially their activist defenders
have an entitled attitude. They somehow believe
it is an injustice they can be deported. They’ve gotten away with for it so long that this attitude only grows with time.
Hopefully this is changing with President Trump. But it hasn’t changed yet.
From La Opinión
Little by little, the government of President Donald Trump seems to be adding conditions to deport thousands of immigrants in the United States, to fulfill his campaign promise and to implement his new rules of immigration ‘by merit.’[Cualquier inmigrante con alguna de estas condicionantes podría ser deportado —“Any Immigrant in any of these situations can be Deported”) November 22, 2017 ]
As a public service to the illegal alien community, there is a new book out to help illegals navigate their way through Trump’s America. It is “written by Univisión
experts and published by Random House Mondadori…..” The book discusses conditions of deportation and is entitled Inmigración, las nuevas reglas
[“Immigration, the New Rules”].
These the things that could lead to deportation—any illegal aliens in these conditions had better beware:
- “Persons who have admitted that they were convicted of a crime.”
- “Those who have been accused of a crime, even when their migratory status has not been resolved by USCIS.”
- “Persons who committed an act that constitutes a criminal offense.”
- “All immigrants who committed fraud or deliberate misrepresentation in relation to some official action or application presented to a governmental body.”
- “Persons who have abused a program related to the reception of public benefits.”
- “Those indocumentados subject to a final order of deportation who have not fulfilled their legal obligation to depart the country.”
- “Those immigrants who, in the judgment of an immigration official, supposedly represent a risk for the public or national security.”
- “Those who have committed a traffic violation, especially DUI.”
Basically, don’t get in trouble.
But aren’t these people already
in violation of the law by being here illegally?
As a matter of fact, the article from The Hill
quotes Tom Homan on that score:
The ICE director, Tom Homan, indicated that the simple act of being indocumentado is a reason to be deported.
Exactly! Maybe I just saved someone the book’s purchase price.
Of course, La Opinión
believes that no illegal Latin American should be deported, so it closes with this bit of advice:
Activists suggest that any immigrant contact a lawyer or organization in defense of civil liberties if they have any of these conditions or are detained by ICE.
Remember, the process doesn’t end until the illegal immigrant wins
