Research shows prosecution reduces migrant reentry after deportation
Prosecuting illegal immigrants, or banning them from obtaining a visa, substantially reduces their likelihood of attempting to cross the border a second time, a new study concludes.
Although it only discusses a policy rolled out between 2008 and 2012, the study may have major implications for President Donald Trump’s zero tolerance approach to immigration enforcement, which still requires the prosecution of most childless border crossers. Continue reading
The “Newspeak” of Orwell’s 1984 is here…
On September 12, 2018 the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) posted an article in its official website, Twitter Ads Rejects Tweets for “Hateful Content.”
The CIS article noted:
Yesterday Twitter rejected four Center for Immigration Studies tweets for use in the Center’s Twitter Ads campaign, alleging hateful content. (Several others were approved.) All four tweets use the statutory phrases “illegal alien” or “criminal alien,” and all of the tweets referenced law enforcement, either at the border or in the interior. One of the tweets contained a powerful Daily Caller video showing illegal aliens in camouflage carrying large backpacks across the border unimpeded.
Who created “multiculturalism”? Why did he think it would work? Where does it find fertile ground to flourish? What might be its end result? Who supports it in the face of devastating failures worldwide?
In 1951, Jamaican-born Stuart Hall who studied at Oxford University, described as the “godfather of multiculturalism”, became one of the founding fathers of cultural studies. He became one of the left’s most influential thinkers, placing questions of race, sexuality, identity and the media firmly at the center of academic debate. Continue reading
This has been an unusual 24 hours in my life… I could not sleep well last night, but…
On and off throughout the day while working on-line I find that I must return to music to calm my anxiety – and believe me – with all of the hate and the anger that we are all witnessing in this nation today – my anxiety grows. But this time it was not music which affected me… Last night I visited several web-pages dealing with Trump’s day on Earth yesterday. One event was the official White House welcoming of Judge Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. The second event was the President speaking before a major police organization.
The majority of the comments posted (in a Facebook format) while the events continued, were of a uplifting, positive and congratulatory type, but they were also spattered with notes and messages of HATE, and I thought to myself, ‘doesn’t it ever stop?‘ When does the hate go away? Continue reading
I’m beginning to wonder, has America watched too much Jerry Springer; has it gotten that we can’t do anything without showing our ass to the world? I could go into great detail as to why I say that, but for brevities sake I will focus my attention upon recent events.
I have watched, rotating between perverted amusement and deep despair, the uproar over the Kavanaugh nomination for the Supreme Court. I have seen the victory dance of those on the political right after he was confirmed, and the resulting meltdown of those on the left upon hearing that their efforts to block his nomination had failed. Through it all I have sat back and asked myself WTF has happened to the people of this country? Continue reading
While ur down there….could u maybe polish my knob?
We had such a small government when George Washington was President. There were just three Cabinet positions: the honestly named Secretary of War, who was responsible for both canons on the Hudson being aimed at England; the Secretary of Treasury, who carried the entire budget in his wallet; and the Secretary of Holding the President’s Horse. The Supreme Court only had one wig. And the Washington Monument was exactly the same height as George, and people said it looked exactly like him.
Q: So, how did government get so BIG???
A: By responding to the NEEDS of the PEOPLE!
Don’t forget to Pound MeToo!
“Since when do those accusing others of crimes become ‘survivors’ rather than ‘accusers’? … The shift in language is to message that accusers must always be believed.” ~ columnist Clarice Feldman
Ms. Feldman has succinctly described the antithesis of one of our nation’s most treasured founding principles. Unfortunately, she also described the essence of a rapidly metastasizing #MeToo movement. One where the “presumption of innocence” and “misogyny” have become interchangeable concepts.
A recent incident at the University of Southern California is indicative. Professor James Moore responded to a reply-all email circulated by student Audrey Mechling, who asserted the necessity to “BELIEVE SURVIVORS” (capitals in the original). Continue reading
A federal judge in San Francisco placed a temporary injunction against the Trump Administration’s actions to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for approximately 300,00 illegal aliens. Judge Edward Chen ruled on Wednesday that TPS recipients from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan would suffer irreparable harm and hardship if the status is terminated. Continue reading
Western elite funded communism and socialism are the phony revolutionary ideas behind the corporate new world order.
In all democratic countries, in the United States even more than elsewhere, a strong belief prevails that the influence of the intellectuals on politics is negligible. This is no doubt true of the power of intellectuals to make their peculiar opinions of the moment influence decisions, of the extent to which they can sway the popular vote on questions on which they differ from the current views of the masses. Yet over somewhat longer periods they have probably never exercised so great an influence as they do today in those countries. This power they wield by shaping public opinion.
In the light of recent history it is somewhat curious that this decisive power of the professional secondhand dealers in ideas should not yet be more generally recognized. The political development of the Western World during the last hundred years furnishes the clearest demonstration. Socialism has never and nowhere been at first a working-class movement. It is by no means an obvious remedy for the obvious evil which the interests of that class will necessarily demand. It is a construction of theorists, deriving from certain tendencies of abstract thought with which for a long time only the intellectuals were familiar; and it required long efforts by the intellectuals before the working classes could be persuaded to adopt it as their program.
