SEIU to Start Attack Ads in Support of Amnesty

“When viewers tune in for coverage of the Latin Grammys on Thursday, they’ll also see ads from the pro-immigration reform groups SEIU and iAmerica Action targeting Republicans over their opposition to deportation relief for undocumented immigrants,” the Huffington Post says.

GOP Field and Legal Immigration

“It was quickly overshadowed by the terrorist attacks in Paris, but a plan Ted Cruz unveiled last week was a sign that the 1990s Republican debate over legal immigration levels is back,” the Washington Examiner says.

“The latest sign, that is. Scott Walker implied he would view legal immigration through the prism of its impact on American workers, but was vague about what this meant about the number of newcomers admitted each year and was accused of talking out of both sides of his mouth. His campaign is already over.”

Obama Has Opened the OPT Floodgate

“President Barack Obama is quietly opening another immigration door just for foreign professionals —and 120,000 overseas graduates are rationally rushing in to snag U.S. white-collar jobs and the chance to win the greatest prize on the planet: American citizenship,” Breitbart News says.

“The growing rush was highlighted Nov. 16 by the New-York-based Institute of International Education, which showed a dramatic increase in foreign professionals joining the the “Optional Practical Training” visa program.”

Clash of Civilizations

“Daniel Horowitz, Senior Editor of the Conservative Review, says we need to halt Muslim immigration into the western world.
Horowitz tells Steve K. Bannon on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily that ‘we are completely focusing on the wrong issues’ when it comes to the debate over bringing in Syrian refugees into the United States. He argued that ‘this is not about vetting’ but that this is about the Muslim ideology,” says Breitbart News.

Debate at College Over Immigration

“Experts went head to head at the Tivoli on this election’s hot topic of immigration. The Nov. 10 debate was part of the Exploring Economic Freedom Lecture Series organized by MSU Denver economics professor Alexandre Padilla. It was moderated by KUSA-TV 9 NEWS reporter Jonathan Gonzales. Mark Krikorian and Alex Nowrasteh, co-authors of ‘Open Immigration: Yea & Nay,’ took center stage,” Mynetmedia says.

    From an article today:
    Testing the gates? Syrians nabbed south of the border, Arizona arrests stoke terror fears

    —Two separate reports of groups of America-bound Syrians detained below the U.S. southern border and the arrests of six other Middle Eastern men nabbed with smugglers in Arizona in recent days are raising concerns that Islamic State militants could be probing security – and stoking fears some may already be here.

    –“Five Syrian citizens have been detained and will be taken to our offices to be investigated because it is suspected they are carrying false documents, passports stolen in Greece,” Honduran police spokesman Anibal Baca told reporters.

    The men had traveled by air from Syria to Lebanon, then to Turkey, Brazil, Argentina, Costa Rica and on to Honduras. They were planning to make their way over land through Guatemala and Mexico and on to the United States, Baca told AFP.

    –On Wednesday, the House Homeland Security committee released a report that found two Al Qaeda terrorists from Iraq who had killed American soldiers were able to enter the country as refugees. The pair, Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, settled in Bowling Green, Ky., after killing American soldiers. In 2010, they were caught with a machine gun and a missile launcher that they planned to smuggle to insurgents in Iraq.

    “I wouldn’t be surprised if there were many more than that,” said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security. “And these are trained terrorists in the art of bombmaking that are inside the United States; and quite frankly, from a homeland security perspective, that really concerns me.”

  2. SEIU is a Worthless Union

    They heap all their money on foreigners. I know, my daughter was a caregiver for my Autistic son with that union.

    I am an immigrant myself but I completely share the ideas and thoughts expressed in “Clash of Civilizations”. There are many other very important issues that need to be addressed in the area of immigration rules and laws and how they do not work in the country but the “Clash” is so underminded and maybe even forbidden to talk about thing. I just came from visiting Europe – people are scared for their children, their love ones, their lives. No one addresses that in European or American media. In Germany you can end up in jail for telling about the horrors of living with “new neighbors”, people call them occupants. Please, put on your website the information about beating German children in schools, atrocious rapes – group rapes, abuse and humiliation of the very people who let those occupants in. The majority of Europeans didn’t want that occupation but they were betrayed by their leaders. Are Americans ready for the same things? We are turned apart by racial, religious and illegal immigration problems, can we allow an additional burden? Are we ready to be called in public “prostitutes” for walking alone, wearing our clothes, are we ready for hearing that they will change the face of our country within several years by giving birth to as many their children as possible (for our money) and making our women their slaves, making them wear burkas and following sharia law? Are we ready for medieval insanity? Yesterday Neil Cavuto said that the nation is losing it’s identity, it’s DNA, etc. There will not be integration, European officials admit that right now on TV (as I am writing this message). We might have it worse because their actions will be protected here by our PC. They are not ISIS, but they all are the believers and supporters of the same values – look at what happened in Turkey, our NATO ally, when Turkish fans praised Allah during the moment of silence in memory of victims of Paris attacks at the soccer match!!! And also don’t forget – how many of migrants are not political but economical refugees?! All these issues are covered with silence and not discussed!!! We need to bring light to all of the issues mentioned above! Please do!
    Please follow me on Facebook, please share the last video I uploaded, showing the true face of the “migration” and what it brings to civilization. People have to make choices based on full knowledge of the issue, not only the facts, conveniently offered to us by media and politicians.

    Thank you!

      There was a 60 Minutes piece a couple months ago about how Muslims are trying to enforce Sharia law on their British neighborhoods. One part showed a Sharia “patrol” telling 2 English guys that they objected to them drinking beer outside a store in “their” neighborhood. In this country Somali cab drivers in Minneapolis tried to gain the ability to refuse passengers who had liquor in their luggage. Once they are the majority anywhere it’s the end of freedom as we know it.

      You are right about them taking over an area by moving in and having lots of children. Just look at all of the areas around the eastern Mediterranean that were once predominantly Christian and are now Muslim areas and what those countries are like. If it happened there it can happen in other areas of Europe if this mass migration is not stopped.

    There is nothing that shakes Alex Nowrasteh from his worship of open borders. When Mark Krikorian asks if we want “300 million people from abroad to move here all at once”, Nowrasteh has no problem with it. Apparently the fact that the infrastructure needed to be provided for that amount of people would be prohibitively expensive never occurs to him. Traffic on Los Angeles freeways is already at standstill for most of the day and into the evening.

      Given that Alex works for the Cato Institute which was founded by one of the billionaire Koch brothers, we can expect him to be for just about any insane open borders idea, as long he continues to get a big paycheck from the greedy special interests that fund CATO. But there have always been people who will do just about anything for a big pile of money, including destroy their own country.
