The La Reconquista?


Intro to J.O. Smith’s ‘The La Reconquista?’

About a week ago I posted the title, “Isn’t the Key Word ‘ILLEGAL’ in Illegal Immigration?” That is the stark truth that No-Borders Democrats would have you believe is irrelevant. If crossing the border without U.S. permission is illegal, then it is a CRIME. If illegal criminal adopts bring their children or another’s children uninvited across the U.S. border illegally, those children may not be criminal by virtue of being too young to be accountable. HOWEVER, those children need to be detained until their idiot parents are deported or granted some kind of refugee status.

 

And speaking of deportation, the legal system determining deportation or refugee status needs to be streamed to days instead of months or years.

 

Justin Smith writes about how illegal immigration will change the nature of American heritage (which the Dems continuously advocate). As the Hispanic people become on pare to the heritage Americans still honoring the off-shooting from the Mother Culture of the British Monarchy, the Hispanic Culture that influenced the Latin Americas will come into a Multicultural confrontation.

 

I guess confrontation is no big deal to the idiocy of diversity-thinking Dems. The opposite of diversity is E PLURIBUS UNUMOut of many, ONE.

The La Reconquista?

Rid America of Illegal Aliens 

 

By Justin O. Smith

Illegal immigration is immoral, and President Trump, like any good, decent and patriotic American, has rightfully stated that anyone attempting to cross the border illegally should be marched straight back across the border, once it is determined they have crossed illegally, bypassing port of entry stations where they could have registered for either asylum or legal immigration status. He should have also added that these people are not conservatives or just like regular Americans, and as such, before we see one more American dead by the hands of an illegal alien, we must do all within our power to ensure that the border is secured and all illegal aliens deported, along with any children verified to be their own, in order to save our Republic from an ultimate destruction.

 

President Trump stated on Wednesday, June 20th, 2018, “If you’re really, really pathetically weak, the country is going to be overrun with millions of people”, which makes it double troubling that he would follow this on the same day with an executive order that caves to the leftist false narrative surrounding illegal alien families and allows them to stay together, which adds more costs to the U.S. tax-payer. Now America must find or build new facilities capable of meeting this new demand.

 

People ask many conservatives “Don’t You care about the children?” Yes! Most, if not all do. We care enough to allow them to be detained together long enough to see them deported. It is not child abuse to send them back to Mexico or wherever they originated, with their parents, who had every chance to first apply for legal immigration.

 

We should ask the Democrats, “What about the children of low-income American workers who experience lower wages due to illegal aliens working for cash and off the books?” And, what about the children of legal immigrants who have been waiting patiently in line for years, for their opportunity to come to America? What about other migrants attempting to escape violence, who have properly asked for asylum but are seemingly punished for following the rules, like Chaldean and Assyrian Christians?

 

Most truly conservative Americans could care less that these people are largely Hispanic coming across the southern border. What concerns conservatives most is the real differences in ideologies, between them and these illegal aliens. And they are right to  be concerned. Anybody who believes in the U.S. Constitution and the Founding principles had better be getting plenty damned worried and acting to stop these invaders.

At no point in U.S. history has the majority, or even a significant portion, of our Hispanic population voted Republican in any national election, with the trend becoming increasingly Democrat. In 1960, the Hispanic population in America was approximately six million and it has now reached about 60 million; and it is projected to reach 110 by 2048 on its current trajectory. This puts the Hispanic population on track to being one of the most influential in future elections.

A Cato survey from 2017 reveals seventy-two percent of Hispanics agreed with the phrase “hate speech is an act of violence,” and sixty-two percent agree that “people who don’t respect others don’t deserve the right to free speech.” The majority of Hispanics have no real understanding of the concept of “free speech”. How will that change the face of America once Hispanics become a majority in America? They also believe that gun control in society is more important than protecting the right of everyone to keep and bear arms. And only nineteen percent favored a smaller government with fewer services over a big government option.

While the Heritage Foundation and writers like Israel Ortega contend that Hispanics, for the most part, hold values consistent with conservative principles, nothing could be further from the truth, and the GOP, in this sense, is misguided in ever believing that this demographic will be anything more than a boon for gun control, the welfare state and more big government bills, projects and spending. Americans should also consider that within just a few short decades our first two amendments could be in real danger of being repealed by a demographic that largely aligns itself with the illiberal, anti-Constitution and anti-American segments of our country.

Later in the day of June 20th, President Trump appeared at a rally in Duluth, Minnesota, where he told the crowd: “Democrats don’t care about the impact of uncontrolled migration on your communities. Democrats put illegal immigrants before they put American citizens.”

 

Where is the outrage over Ms. Laura Wilkerson’s son, Josh, being brutally tortured to death and set afire by an illegal alien MS-13 gang member? Where is the outrage over Christy Sue Pina, daughter of Juan and a U.S. citizen, being kidnapped, strangled, stabbed and raped and left dead in an artichoke field, by an illegal alien? And the list is long and grows more horrific as the numerous stories were told to the President at the White House on June 22nd.

 

The President noted during his June 22nd meeting with these ‘Angel Families’, that “in Texas alone within the last seven years, more than a quarter million criminal aliens have been arrested and charged with over 600,000 criminal offenses”. He added, “I always hear that, ‘Oh, no, the population is safer than the people that live in the country’. … It’s not true.”

 

Our leaders must regain the strength and the political will to uphold the rule of law, the same strength that Andrew Jackson had to run the Spanish out of Florida and Sam Houston had in winning the day for Texas against Santa Anna’s army, if our nation is going to succeed in halting it’s decline, into nothing more than the “polyglot boardinghouse” for the world that Theodore Roosevelt warned against. They must not force this generation to bear witness to our great American Southwest being reconquered through a deliberate policy of the Mexican regime, that seeks to aid the La Reconquista movement and the detachment of our lands ethnically, linguistically and culturally. A firm and vigorously enforced plan to rid America of illegal aliens and secure our borders must soon be pursued, since tens of millions more potential illegal aliens are poised at the Southern border ready to end the legacy of Jackson and Houston and a host of American patriots, an American legacy, our Republic.

A Ticket to Mexico


S. 744 - Scamnesty sign

Intro: A Ticket to Mexico
John R. Houk
© July 16, 2013
 
 
Justin Smith writes about the negative effects the Senate Immigration Reform Bill will have on America.
 
Here are some subjects within the article that I was not clear on thus I am going to assume many readers may have a lack of clarity as well. I add them for the reader’s benefit; however if you are confident about the terminology simply skip right to Justin’s article below this intro.
 
 
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said in a statement about the CIS analysis that this is yet another sign the Schumer-Rubio amnesty legislation is not good policy. “This report from CIS is a bombshell,” Sessions said.
 
To my surprise, and no doubt the surprise of many, the Gang of Eight Immigration doubles the annual number of guest workers from today’s levels – a much larger increase than any of us had imagined. It adds four times more guest workers than the rejected proposal from 2007. Yet today’s employment situation is far worse than when Congress considered the 2007 proposal.
 
This large increase in guest workers guarantees that Americans’ wages will remain stagnant and that the unemployed will remain unemployed. This legislation surges the number of low-wage workers at the expense of the poor and middle class.
 
Sessions’ Senate colleague, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), expressed concerns with the guest worker program during a Senate floor speech on Wednesday. He argued that the bill’s visa programs for foreign workers are a ploy by big corporations to depress wages of American workers. Sanders particular attention to h-1b visas, and how middle-class Americans cannot find white collar jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. (ANALYSIS: IMMIGRATION BILL WILL BRING 600K MORE GUEST WORKERS PER YEAR; By MATTHEW BOYLE; Breitbart; 6/5/13)
 
Corker-Hoeven Amendment
 
A new 1,000-plus-page bill has just been filed incorporating the changes from the Corker–Hoeven amendment. Initial reports indicate that the amendment calls for:
 
·         A Comprehensive Southern Border Security Strategy to be deployed and operational, including the minimum technology and equipment listed in S. 744;
 
·         An additional 20,000 Border Patrol agents to be deployed, maintained, and stationed along the southern border;
 
·         The Southern Border Fencing Strategy to be implemented and at least 700 miles of fencing to be completed;
 
·         An entry/exit system to track visa overstays to be fully implemented at all airports and seaports; and
 
·         E-Verify to be fully implemented by all employers.
 
This may all sound great on paper, but dig a little deeper and you’ll see that, just like in the language of the bill, none of the border security measures in the Corker–Hoeven amendment have to be in place until illegal immigrants with registered provisional immigrant status are to receive green cards 10 years down the road. (Corker–Hoeven Immigration Amendment: Far from a Game Changer; By Jessica Zuckerman and David Inserra; The Foundry [a Heritage.org blog]; 6/21/13 4:14 pm)
 
Reconquista (Movement)
 
… We noted the rise of radical Latino identity groups composed of both naturalized immigrants and illegal aliens. These groups are being organized by World Communist Party apparatchiks, who are providing the ethnic incitement behind protests in Los Angeles and other cities from coast to coast.
 
What are illegal alliens (sic) demanding in protests on U.S. soil?
 
These were protests not just on behalf of “amnistia” — demanding amnesty and all rights shared by U.S. citizens; for many, they were a means of promoting the reunification of the southwestern United States with Mexico.
 
The “reconquista” movement is marked by the flying of the Mexican flag over the American flag and has all the elements of a violent nationalist movement with the terrorist implications. … (Reconquista: The Movement; The Patriot Post)
 
 
There is a plan, called The Plan Of Aztlan, that’s been in effect for about four decades. The goal, being pursued vigorously by radical, racist Chicano (Mexican-American) groups and the Mexican government, is to reconquer (Reconquista) land lost to America in the Mexican-American War that ended in 1848 with the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo.
 
Mexicans and many Mexican-Americans have never accepted the loss of their land, inhabited long before the gringos (white Europeans) arrived. Chicano groups like MEchA (Chicano Student Movement Of Aztlan) want to reconquer seven states in the Southwestern United States called Aztlan, the mythical home of the Aztecs. They include: California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, plus parts of Colorado, Nevada and Utah.
 
The road to success is based on infiltration (illegal aliens from Mexico) and demographic dominance (like-minded Chicanos being elected to political office by a region overwhelmingly of Mexican origin). What would exist is a de facto alien nation, with loyalty to their Mexican homeland. Efforts would be made to establish a separate government or to rejoin Mexico. Note that Mexico has granted dual citizenship to Mexican immigrants with U.S. citizenship as well as to their children. Kind of speeds the process along. No repatriation needed. (Reconquista: the Invasion of America; TheLastGringo.com; 4/20/06)
 
La Raza
 
 
It is past time for all Americans to know what is at the root of this outrageous behavior, and the extent to which the nation is at risk because of “La Raza” — The Race.
 
There are many immigrant groups joined in the overall “La Raza” movement. The most prominent and mainstream organization is the National Council de La Raza — the Council of “The Race”.
 
To most of the mainstream media, most members of Congress, and even many of their own members, the National Council of La Raza is no more than a Hispanic Rotary Club.
 
 
Radical ‘Reconquista’ Agenda
 
Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.
 
Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.
 
One of America’s greatest strengths has always been taking in immigrants from cultures around the world, and assimilating them into our country as Americans. By being citizens of the U.S. we are Americans first, and only, in our national loyalties.
 
This is totally opposed by MEChA for the hordes of illegal immigrants pouring across our borders, to whom they say:
 
“Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we…should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot…Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas … It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny.” (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)
 
MEChA isn’t at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races. Their founding principles are contained in these words in “El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan” (The Spiritual Plan for Aztlan):
 
“In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. … Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. … We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo [all or everything]. Fuera [Against or Out of] de La Raza nada [nothing].”

A Ticket to Mexico

Much of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act was designed in the 11th hour and presented America with a wasteful and poorly reasoned policy, of which any U.S. Senator should be ashamed to be known as one of the “yes” votes. This recent action in conjunction with the Corker-Hoeven Amendment perfectly illustrates the need to repeal the 17th Amendment and return to the Founder’s Original Intent under Article I: Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, as the majority of Americans in opposition to giving provisional legal status to 30 million plus illegal aliens saw their Senators side with leftist academics, the likes of Reconquista and LARAZA advocates, uneducated do-gooders who have thrown common sense out the window and antinational organizations.

Today in America, some would have us believe that “nationalism”, love of one’s nation and a desire to protect one’s American heritage and a belief in our nation’s right to sovereignty, is somehow comparable to a vulgar swear word. Immigration can be beneficial to the immigrant and the nation, under the right circumstances; however, the U.S. must act through its right and responsibility to ensure only responsible levels of immigration that promote assimilation, self-sufficiency and rising wages. And to date, Congress and the Executive have not remotely accomplished this.

I never thought I would offer the European Union as an example of anything that the U.S. should follow, but even in Europe, the EU nations such as Switzerland [*SlantRight Editor: Switzerland is not an EU member but has set up economic treaties that allows an EU-Swiss interface across borders], Britain and Spain are now realizing the folly of unrestricted movement across borders, as they now fight the guidelines of the Schengen Agreement, which eliminated internal boundaries in 1995. The poorest of immigrants from Bulgaria and Romania have tested the boundaries of most EU nations’ economies in the midst of exploding unemployment, and now many are re-imposing border controls and making it easier to deport foreigners.

Some have suggested that a shortfall for H1B visas for workers exists in many professional fields. If this is indeed the case, it can be addressed independently in the House through a series of smaller bills that focus on the various components of our immigration system, much as suggested by Speaker John Boehner on July 11, 2013. And, as they attempt to play on America’s emotions, the liberals dredge up images of desperate immigrant families who want nothing more than a chance to work and feed themselves without fear of deportation; the H2B visa currently allows temporary workers to stay virtually uninterrupted for three consecutive years, and the Diversity Visa Lottery gives green cards to thousands of foreign nationals annually.

Ex-President George W. Bush has entered the debate again, as he recently called for Americans to “keep a benevolent spirit in mind and…understand the contributions that immigrants make to our country.” This seems to align with David Brooks’ (NY Times) agreement with the American Action Forum’s finding that the Senate bill will increase per capita income by $1700 after ten years.

If these illegal aliens are such entrepreneurs and such a potential economic boon to our economy, why doesn’t that show in the economies of the nations of their origin? Why haven’t they stayed and fought to improve conditions in their native land? Why hasn’t America already experienced great economic improvements, since millions of illegal aliens have been here for decades? Does anyone really believe that the majority of this current massive group of illegals will fight any harder for the salvation of America, politically and economically or otherwise, than they did for their own country?

While I generally believe all people are assets with something to offer any workforce, I must agree with Ms Ann Coulter’s assessment in April 2013, when she stated that legalizing the current illegal alien population would only be an economic boon to people who “benefit from slave labor.” In 2010, Raul Hinojosa-Ojeda at the Center for American Progress released an analysis concluding that unskilled workers in the U.S. would make $400 more annually, if the illegal immigration population were reduced by one-third; another analysis by the Federal Reserve revealed that as illegal immigrant labor increased from 4% to 7% in Georgia, between 2000 and 2007, wages dropped 2.5% overall and 11% in construction jobs during this period.

Typically, low-skilled immigrants do entry-level work, and they do not directly compete with the native born U.S. citizen. But, the current economic recession has changed the jobs market, as 100 million Americans now receive food subsidies and close to 20 million are unemployed, with millions more under-employed. The labor participation rate has dropped from 63% in 2007 to 54% currently, and competition for jobs has increased from 1.5 job seeker per job to 5.0, without accounting for under-employed or discouraged workers. Under these conditions, it is unethical for any Congressman or Senator to grant full job market access and permanent legal status to 30 million largely unskilled illegal aliens at the expense of the American taxpayer and the American worker!

Times have changed, and yet, in many respects, they have stayed the same, as seen in this 1995 quote from the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, still applicable today: “It is not in the national interest to admit unskilled workers, because the U.S. economy is showing difficulty in absorbing disadvantaged workers.” And, eighteen years later, U.S. politicians continue to ignore this warning, as they bow to every corporation and special interest rather than listen to their constituents and taking a realistic look at the illegal alien effect on poverty and the American worker.

Even should I or millions of Americans be compassionate or stupid enough to accept the dire economic consequences for decades that will follow any legitimacy or amnesty granted these illegal aliens, we should not accept Chuck Schumer’s and Harry Reid’s massive pork-spending measures that they placed in the Senate bill, and we should not cower in the face of blackmail and threats, such as the civil unrest and violence Senator Robert Menendez promised would be delivered, if the bill was not passed; many Americans would be more inclined to respond to a request for immigration reform based on humanitarian reasoning, than demands from foreigners holding signs that read in Spanish, “Cuidadania para los 11 millones” and United We Dream activist Lorella Praeli’s statement, “We have come today to claim our citizenship”: As far as I’m concerned, they can claim their damn ticket home to Mexico, Guatemala or wherever!

George W recently echoed the thoughts of Amnesty/Reward proponents, when he stated on July 10, 2013, “The laws governing the immigration system aren’t working. The system is broken.” In 1986 Congress, for the first time, enacted legislation that made it illegal for businesses to hire illegal aliens, and they combined it with border control and de facto amnesty for the illegal alien population, that had been in the U.S. for five years, as Congress hoped to initiate effective immigration control. The system is not “broken”. Congress and the Executive have simply refused to enforce the law, and they have failed the nation and the American people. We have been here before; we are here once again.

Obama does not represent the American people or the Office of the President, as he refuses to uphold his oath to the U.S. Constitution and to enforce any law he does not like. In a July 2011 speech to LARAZA, Obama stated that he would like to “bypass Congress and change the (immigration) laws. So, the House Republican leaders have good reason not to trust any promises emanating from this administration.

As White House directed pressure mounts in the House, the next few months will prove critical in whether or not Amnesty/Reward is stopped. Speaker Boehner has already said that the Republican majority did not intend to even consider the Senate bill. The “comprehensive immigration” issue should eventually die from a lack of new momentum, as long as Republicans approach any immigration legislation in segments and facets of the issue. And actually, doing nothing is better than completely changing immigration law and policy by ingraining “amnesty” into our legal foundation and rewarding thirty (11?) million illegal aliens, who broke U.S. law; allowing any House bill to go to conference with the Senate bill will only result in amnesty, and it will send the message, “If you can get here and stay here, the U.S. will eventually give you provisional legal status.”  Not one single American should be able to acquiesce to the legalization of illegal aliens and placing the illegals’ interests ahead of all legal applicants and the best interest of these United States, in good conscience: Christian compassion should not aid the Leftist “open borders” agenda, and it should not dictate that we all commit national economic suicide!

Confirm thy soul in self-control, thy liberty in law.” – ‘America the Beautiful’
