There is Responsibility in Reporting
President Trump’s immigration policies follow economic nationalism. Trump’s “Put America First” program seeks to protect American workers and industries. It also reverses decades of U.S. immigration policy that called for countries to “Send me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free.”
It is of necessity that we allow our readers to know, moreover, be aware that the phrase “Send me your tired, … huddled masses, ….” is the inscription on the base of the Statue of Liberty, which according to most should be construed as an art form from another country that assisted the US during the American Revolution against the British, Prussians, Germans, and many other nations as well.
What is being insisted upon here is that the inscription says a lot more, but it is pro-immigration enthusiasts and special interest groups who tend to say that is somehow related to immigration. As for me, it represents a nation that was founded and built upon the experiment of freedom. Furthermore, for every action, there is a simply corresponding reaction.
A good example of this idiom is within the notion that America is without question the most giving nation in the world. From free land, housing, food stamps, U.S. AIDE, entitlements to whomever, citizenship to whatever and in doing this the country and people have been totally taken advantage of – being an immigrant to any nation is a fine badge of honor; however, it is the intermixture of behavioral attitudes with mouths flapping for more, more, more and now that sickens most Americans.
On January 26, 2018, Trump released an immigration plan. It would offer a 12-year path to citizenship for 1.8 million immigrants who arrived in the United States illegally as children. It would replace President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The plan budgets $25 billion for a wall along the border with Mexico. It ends the practice of “catch and release.” It prohibits green cards for distant relatives of immigrants. Cards would only be available to spouses and children. The plan ends the diversity visa lottery. So, if America is to take on 1.8 new citizens and 25 billion dollars for a new wall, my only question is where is the assistance or help from any of the citizenry or the Mexican government?
On January 9, 2018, the U.S. District Court in San Francisco ruled that “Dreamers” are protected. Those eligible for DACA cannot be deported until the matter is resolved in court. The judgment overrides Trump’s announcement that he would end DACA on March 5, 2018. Trump wants Congress to create a replacement. Seriously, this action by California makes me sick!
If the US Congress has indeed put forth a “vote of no confidence” (failing to pass) it is a very ugly step for an individual state and the political machinery therein to jump in as well. Please, anyone, look up the rate of people moving out of California because of these very reasons.
On April 24, 2018, the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Department of Homeland Security must better explain its reasons for canceling DACA. If it doesn’t do so in 90 days, the department must resume processing DACA applications. It needs to be noted in the extreme here that President Trump DID NOT create DACA. For those who remember, it was former president Barack Obama who created the DACA catastrophe by executive order during the Unaccompanied Minor surge during his last trimester in office.
