Paul Ryan’s DACA Deal is a Terrible Idea, Here’s The Reason Why

Published

on

House Speaker Paul Ryan has drafted a new DACA plan and it’s a total disaster from start to finish, as it practically hands over amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and puts off the building of a wall that would be used to secure our borders.

Apparently, Ryan still doesn’t get the point that being lukewarm and not standing on principles you claim to espouse results in revolt, a lesson that should have been made clear with the election of Donald Trump to the office of president. Guess Ryan has a hard head.

The bill in question would give 1.8 million DACA illegal immigrants amnesty based on the contingency that Trump’s border wall receive $25 billion in funding.

The Ryan/Goodlatte bill mandates that $25 billion be appropriated for a border wall to stop illegal immigration at the southern border. That funding “must not have been rescinded or transferred to another account” in order for the DACA amnesty to begin, a summary of the legislation provided to Breitbart News reads.

The amnesty for DACA illegal aliens would begin after five years, allowing for the eligible 1.8 million population to obtain Green Cards through a newly created “Merit-Based” immigration category.

This amnesty, though, would be halted if the $25 billion in border wall funding is not available for use at the border. A summary of the legislation notes:

Visa Availability – beginning in the sixth year of the program, the first green cards would be awarded under the new program only if the advanced appropriated funds for border security for that fiscal year have been made available for obligation, have not been transferred or reprogrammed for other non-border security purposes, and have not been rescinded. [Emphasis added]

In addition to fully funding a border wall, the Ryan/Goodlatte legislation closes the various immigration legal loopholes that perpetuate programs like “Catch and Release,” where illegal aliens are released into the U.S. while they await court proceedings.

The legislation would also allow the victims of illegal alien crimes to sue sanctuary cities for protecting criminal illegal aliens, though it does not cut funding to sanctuary cities altogether.

Doesn’t handing amnesty to a million illegals sort of defeat the purpose of building a wall in the first place? Shouldn’t individuals who are breaking our law by crossing the border without legal permission be sent back to their country of origin until such time as they can arrange to come back legally?

We need the border wall because a nation without borders is no nation at all. We have to stop violent criminals from gaining access to our system, our benefits, and most of all our citizens.

Let’s hope Congress finds another way to raise the funds for the wall.

‘The Palestinian Delusion’ Untangles a Web of Fashionable Lies (Opinion)

A thoughtful opinion piece…

Published

on

Chances are that if you know a college student, he or she believes these things: Israel exists on stolen land. Israelis are all just Europeans, anyway. The true inhabitants of the land that is called Israel today are the Palestinians, and their country is Palestine. The Israeli occupation is cruel, and marked by numerous human rights abuses perpetrated against the innocent Palestinians. One day, the occupation will end, and from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. But fervently and passionately believed falsehoods are still just falsehoods. And now, one of the nation’s foremost authorities on Islam and jihad, and author of the unique and groundbreaking The History of Jihad, has turned to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and delivered a concise but comprehensive refutation of all the false claims about this conflict that prevail today on college campuses and elsewhere. In the sharp and factual book The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process, historian Robert Spencer untangles the web of lies that envelop all discussion of this conflict in the international media, and gives us the unvarnished (and often unwelcome) truth. One thing that nobody ever seems to wonder about is why this conflict is still going on so many decades after some of the most renowned and respected leaders in the world began to devote concerted efforts to ending it. Why has every one of the numerous attempts to bring peace failed, and failed consistently for seven decades now? In The Palestinian Delusion, Spencer answers that question and many others about this intractable dispute, and in the process, establishes definitively that Israel, contrary to the claims of so many among the academic, political, and media elites, not only has a right to exist, but has the best claim of any country to the supposedly…

Ilhan Omar: Hateful Rhetorical Is Synonymous With Republican Party, Which Inspires Terror Attacks

Is this what she truly believes?

John Salvatore

Ilhan Omar might’ve been dropped on her head. Not as a child, but as an adult. Okay, maybe both. For someone to be this ignorant about, well, everything, goes to show that too many people don’t understand politics or America, in general. The freshman lawmaker made some very silly comments on radically far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid’s morning program on Sunday. Go figure. But even for Ilhan, this stuff is pretty ridiculous. From Daily Wire: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked Republicans on Sunday during an interview on far-left MSNBC, claiming that the Republican Party is synonymous with hateful and “sinful” rhetoric. […] “Yeah, I mean hate, sinful, [unintelligible] rhetoric is very dangerous and it’s becoming synonymous with the Republican Party,” Omar responded. “They have refused to condemn and distance themselves from members within their party that have threatened my life and the lives of others, that have caused the deaths of people in this country who follow their message, and have put their names, the names of our president, and many of the Republican leaders in their manifestos as they have taken innocent lives.” WATCH: WOW Watch Ilhan Omar say that Hate is becoming “synonymous with the Republican Party” I’m old enough to remember when some Congresswoman Tweeted some pretty Hateful things herself. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1206354899799334912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1206354899799334912&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Filhan-omar-hate-sinful-rhetoric-is-synonymous-with-gop-gop-inspires-terror-attacks Israel can do no right in the eyes of Omar, Rashida Tlaib – any Democrat, really. Never mind that Palestine doesn’t really exist and that multiple nations have threatened to wipe the Jewish homeland off the face of the earth – that doesn’t matter to the left. What matters is that all things America – and American-ally – are badmouthed and trashed. WATCH: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) says that Israel is not a democracy and is not an ally of the United States https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1163551579850412032?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163551579850412032&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F50811%2Fomar-claims-israel-not-democracy-or-ally-lies-ryan-saavedra
