(Natural News) Illegal immigration has been a hot-button issue for decades and is now reaching its boiling point — largely at the behest of corrupt and disingenuous Democrat politicians. The Left is on a phony human rights crusade, denigrating anyone who dares to stand up for the rights of American citizens as a “xenophobic racist,” or a “white supremacist.” The irony of pretending to care about the needs and rights for “all people,” while our country’s own citizens are being murdered by criminal migrants would almost be funny, if it wasn’t so tragic. Democrats aren’t just the party that supports illegal immigration — they are the party that supports the total upending of the United States.
When former President Obama said he wanted to “fundamentally change America,” he wasn’t joking: Destroying what makes America great is the underlying message of the Left’s most popular talking points. Whether they’re promoting illegal immigration, or demanding that the First and Second Amendments be dismantled, the call for “fundamental change” has become a party-wide platform for the Left. The preservation of liberty as we know it is on the line.
Democrats give criminal illegals a pass
The notion that the Left is putting illegal immigrants ahead of American citizens is not a foreign one; it’s a sentiment that many people share for good reason. The recent murders of Mollie Tibbetts and Kate Steinle drives this point home — especially given that Steinle’s murderer was ultimately acquitted by California courts.
Illegal immigrant Jose Garcia-Zarate was released by California law enforcement a few months prior to Steinle’s murder, even though Immigration and Customs Enforcement had requested that he be detained for deportation. State officials released him anyway, and Zarate went on to kill an innocent woman. Had the authorities in San Francisco done their jobs, instead of instituting a ridiculous “sanctuary city” policy, this tragedy never would have happened.
Perhaps we should start holding liberal politicians accountable for the deaths that are ultimately on their hands — at the very least, by not continuing to vote for them.
Left-wing dogma persists
Instead of at least acknowledging that local law enforcement officers should comply with ICE detainment requests, Democrats are doubling down on their sanctimonious “sanctuary city” policies. Not only are there more than 400 counties that have enacted similar sanctuary legislation this year, sources report that over 200 jurisdictions refused to comply with ICE requests in a single week. These requests for detainment were reportedly made against people who were charged or convicted of serious crimes.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has even claimed that sanctuary status helps “public safety.” The only people who seem to be safer, however, are illegal aliens. The fact that so-called sanctuary cities are refusing to cooperate with ICE — even when the illegal immigrant in question is guilty of a serious crime — is a major red flag that these politicians care more about appearances and agenda than they do about the American people.
Americans know that no population is perfect. We know that a certain number of legal immigrants will commit crimes, just as a certain number of native-born Americans will commit crimes. But there is a difference between doing due diligence and no diligence at all.
In fact, while it’s difficult to get precise data on the extent or rate of illegal-immigrant crime in this country, information from even the most illegal-immigrant-friendly sources shows that legal immigrants commit homicide at lower rates than illegal immigrants. Screening makes a difference.
Facts like this are maligned by the liberal media as “hate speech.” Americans are tired of being put on the back-burner while liberal politicians ignore real data and continue to promote their agenda. Elected officials are choosing to not enforce existing laws designed to protect American citizens — and liberals denigrate anyone who dares suggest these laws be enforced as a “racist” or a “white supremacist.”
As they say, “When someone shows you who they really are, believe them.” Democrat politicians have shown us they do not care about the United States, its people, or our laws — whether through advocating illegal immigration, the demands to terminate our Second Amendment rights, or the infringement of freedom of speech for conservatives.
The Left has shown what they really stand for — and in the upcoming election cycle, you can show them where you stand, too.
