Will our voices be drowned by big ‘leftist’ money behind Obama and no-borders movement?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 15, 2014

And, special feature:  The Commies at Casa de Maryland are at it again too!

When you read this New York Times article you can pat yourselves on the back for holding off the no-borders leftists for as long as we have with mostly grassroots power and no money.

But, don’t despair!  We can do it again!

George Soros and Hillary. Soros funded “evangelicals” for open borders. http://www.examiner.com/article/soros-funded-evangelical-groups-pressure-congress-for-immigration-reform

The New York Times yesterday gives us a catalog of the Leftwing big bucks flowing into supposed do-gooder pro-immigrant lobbying groups.   And, this doesn’t even include the money coming from big international corporations, like BIG MEAT, looking for cheap laborers.

Who gets screwed (sorry for the language, but how else can you say it)?  Middle and lower class Americans who want to work and love America as it is!

They aren’t just fishing for Democrat voters, they are working for the advancement of a socialist/communist borderless world where people like George Soros, and now his offspring, will control what happens throughout the world to your detriment and their financial advantage. (Of course Soros and his ilk think they can control the Islamists and their migration agenda.)

The pro-open borders/no borders do-gooders (and frankly some of the immigrants themselves) are only pawns.

From the NYT (hat tip: Judy).  We pushed them back in 2007, we can do it again! (Emphasis is mine)

When President Obama announces major changes to the nation’s immigration enforcement system as early as next week, his decision will partly be a result of a yearslong campaign of pressure by immigrant rights groups, which have grown from a cluster of lobbying organizations into a national force.

A vital part of that expansion has involved money: major donations from some of the nation’s wealthiest liberal foundations, including the Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Open Society Foundations of the financier George Soros, and the Atlantic Philanthropies. Over the past decade those donors have invested more than $300 million in immigrant organizations, including many fighting for a pathway to citizenship for immigrants here illegally.

The philanthropies helped the groups rebound after setbacks and financed the infrastructure of a network in constant motion, with marches, rallies, vigils, fasts, bus tours and voter drives. The donors maintained their support as the immigration issue became fiercely partisan on Capitol Hill and the activists intensified their protests, engaging in civil disobedience and brash confrontations with lawmakers and the police.

The donors’ strategy arose in 2007, as immigrant groups nursed wounds from a rout after a bill pushed by President George W. Bush failed in Congress.

Mr. Stein, this is bigger than the Democrat party!  We have been watching the same strategies unfold in our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series.  Did you know they have the ‘unaccompanied minors’ invasion happening there too (see next post this morning).

“The whole apparatus has become the handmaiden of the Democratic Party,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, which opposes legalization for unauthorized immigrants. “These foundations fund activist organizations designed to create ethnic identity enclaves and politically control them for partisan purposes.”

Speaking of ethnic enclaves, predictably here comes Casa de Maryland.  Be sure to read all about the Commies at CASA, here. (LOL! We have to get over our self-censorship and call a Communist a Communist!).

…. now that the White House has confirmed that Mr. Obama plans measures that could shield as many as five million immigrants from deportation, the advocates are mobilized and pushing him to act as broadly as his powers allow.

Last week, two days after the president held a news conference in the wake of the midterm elections, vowing to take executive action on immigration, Gustavo Torres, the executive director of CASA de Maryland and a coalition leader, was protesting once again in front of the White House.

“We expect the president to be big and bold,” he said. “This is his opportunity to make sure we are going to remember him as the president who made a difference for Latino and immigrant communities.”

Bloomberg writer posits that more ingredients in a recipe makes for a better stew and so does more immigration to America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 11, 2014

Huh?

This is just a ridiculous analogy and would not be worth even a mention if it weren’t for the huge number of commenters (with entertaining things to say) blasting the author’s conclusions and demonstrating the good sense of Americans generally.

Here is Noah Smith’s opening paragraph of Best Immigration Policy Is More Immigration (hat tip: Paul):

In my family, we have a cooking technique that is especially useful for making stews and other mixed-ingredient dishes. If there is ever doubt as to whether or not to add more of an ingredient — onions, olive oil, Cholula sauce — we err on the side of adding more. This approach has long been my default attitude toward immigration — more is better.

There is a bunch of mumbo-jumbo about assimilation and whether well-educated immigrants assimilate better than the uneducated.  The author does say that maybe we shouldn’t have so many uneducated ones.  And concludes with this:

So it would seem to be a good idea for us to tilt our immigration policy toward more skills-based immigration. When it comes to the “More!” cooking technique, high-skilled immigrants are the ingredient that goes well with any dish.

Brilliant, isn’t it!

Bloomberg commenters were having none of it.  As of this writing, there are 500 of them.  Some are hilarious!

Here is the latest one (an hour ago as I post this):

Jim:  It’s unbelievable how many idiots there are in the world, and how many of those idiots are in the media profession.

Somalis cook too!

And, LOL!, here is one involving another cooking technique!  Somali refugees in America like cooking too—roast lamb in this case!

Susan Betts (responding to Dave Kelly):

Having been someone that worked with the influx of Somali folks that came in this country in the 90’s these idealistic people have no idea in so far as practical application what they are talking about. Most are very very unskilled, don’t speak English well enough, don’t understand the basics requirements of what a land lord will require of them and don’t care. I had one land lord end his participation in the county program for housing because these people built fires to roast lambs in the middle of the living room and would not stop. It damaged his property so badly that he ended up suing the county. They ignore occupancy laws and many many other things that would take forever to itemize. I think you get my drift. There assimilation was all federal, state and county funded once those dollars were gone it has been a real mess. I am speaking for Ohio and Minnesota.

France’s immigration restrictionist politician, Marine Le Pen, has a bright future

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 10, 2014

Where is America’s Marine Le Pen?

 

Although this Harvard publication works really hard to make sure you have a very negative view of her—right down to the fact (supposed fact) that she had a dispute with her farther-to-the-right father over her pet cat.  Really Harvard Political Review, this is beneath you (well, maybe not!).  Imagine ever seeing a story out of Harvard about a Leftwinger like Hillary or Nancy Pelosi and some petty argument with a family member over a household pet.

Before I get to the news.  This is what I want to know? Where is America’s Marine Le Pen? Or Geert Wilders? Or Nigel Farage? Or Jimmie Akesson?

I know Senator Jeff Sessions is a great leader of the immigration restriction movement, but as a US Senator there isn’t a whole lot he can do as a lonely warrior in that body, or as a member of the Republican Party.

Someone has to actually create a competing political party to focus our immigration problem where it should be (in my view)—America’s number one economic, social and national security priority.

Maybe we just haven’t reached the desperate bottom yet as have France, Holland, England or Sweden.

Here is the Harvard Political Review on Le Pen and what they call the “far-right:”

In a recent poll for the French presidential election in 2017, far-right politician Marine Le Pen is polling ahead of the president of France by a whopping eight percentage points. This is the continuation of a long trend that has skyrocketed her party to the top of French politics. Mrs. Le Pen’s numbers indicate that she is very likely to advance to the runoff of the two-round presidential election. The success of Marine Le Pen and her party, the National Front, is surprising considering the extremity of the party’s rhetoric. However, the root of this success lies in the history of France and, in particular, the failure of the French economy.

The article then gives us a whinny-sounding discussion of how France welcomed cheap labor from Africa and now has problems with it.  There is no mention of Muslim supremacists rising, Muslim no-go zones, Muslim youths burning cars in the streets, demands for sharia law or any of the other lovely things brought to first-world countries from Muslim countries (al-Hijra) that might have caused the French electorate to now have second thoughts about any more immigration.

The far right has effectively used this immigration situation as a tool for political gain.  [NO kidding!—ed]

Although she has an eight point lead on the sitting president, Harvard tells us she will have a tougher go against Sarkozy:

Mrs. Le Pen is incredibly powerful now, but she isn’t quite within reach of the presidency yet. She is currently close to former President Sarkozy in the polls. Voters may be more comfortable with Sarkozy because they’ve seen him in power before, but he has already been elected out of office once. According to Mr. Recoing, if Sarkozy beats Le Pen in the presidential election, but fails to help the ailing economy, the French people may turn to someone new. That new person may very well be Marine Le Pen. The political leadership of someone who wishes to destroy the euro and drastically slow immigration could cause a significant shift in the political landscape of Europe.

Yes, and wouldn’t that just maybe save Europe (if it isn’t already too late).

See our series on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’  There is something new to report almost every day!

Setback! (ya think!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 6, 2014

Look at this incredible map for the House of Representatives published by the National Journal (which says it will update as soon as a few more races become official).  I wonder if these blue areas correlate well with high immigrant population areas (except maybe Vermont which gets very few refugees and immigrants although it brags about being “welcoming.”)

Guess the Dems have a long way to go in turning red states blue!

One caveat:  Having a red Representative does not necessarily mean you have someone with common sense on the immigration issue.

Update:  Map keeps disappearing on me, so if it does, go to the link to view it.

Russia fed up with too many illegal migrants; rights group says xenophobia is rampant

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 5, 2014

It is rare to see news from Russia about its illegal migrant problem, but here is a story from Monday that appeared in my alerts.  Eroding social cohesion there too?

From IPS News (emphasis is mine):

MOSCOW, Nov 3 2014 (IPS) - Immigrants in Russia could face a wave of violence following thousands of arrests in a crackdown on illegal immigration which has been condemned not only for human rights breaches but for entrenching a virulent negative public perception of migrants.

Russia “intimidating migrants” says human rights activist Tolekan Ismailova who apparently wears many hats. http://www.rferl.org/content/uzbekistan-kyrgyz-activist-detained/25027138.html

More than 7,000 people were arrested across Moscow – and more than 800 already served with deportation orders – under Operation Migrant 2014 which ran between Oct. 23 and Nov. 2 in the Russian capital.

The scale of the operation and methods used by the authorities has left international and local rights organisations outraged.

They say police used violence during raids on thousands of locations, including work places, markets, lodgings, hotels and people’s homes. They said that some migrants were forcibly taken from their families with no information given to relatives of where they were being taken.

Some were deported without proper procedures being observed, according to local lawyers while others claim many of an estimated up to 100,000 migrants detained had money confiscated by police before being released without their detention being recorded.

Tolekan Ismailova, vice-president of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), said: “This is simply an institutionalised way of intimidating migrants and their families. The operation violates Russia’s international obligations to respect human dignity and ban the practice of arbitrary detentions.”

But beyond the rights abuses, the highly-publicised raids are, critics argue, also helping foment and entrench a xenophobic attitude to migrants in wider society that increases the risk of violence against them.

Ismailova told IPS: “Operations like this only reinforce negative images of migrants in Russia and increase violence towards them. Once Russians see images of the raids in the news they will rally to support the government’s actions.”

The warnings come amid hardening attitudes towards what some Russian MPs estimate to be as many as 10 million migrants across Russia.

There is more, read it all here.  I wonder what proportion of the illegal migrants are Muslims?

US Census figures way off for Somali population in the US?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 2, 2014

A comment on one of those discussion boards just caught my eye—the statement was that Somalis are the least educated of the African immigrants living in America.  I laughed out loud when I considered how clever they are at schemes to benefit themselves—like the housing voucher scheme in Cheyenne I just wrote about.  Who needs a formal education when you know how to make it without working too hard.

The discussion thread led to this story about the US Census Bureau report from early October about the African population in America which included this graph:

 

I went to have a look at the Census report and followed a link to this information: The Census Bureau says that 76,205 Somali immigrants live in America.  See Report and Supplemental tables here.

However, we have documented almost 120,000 admitted in the Refugee Resettlement Program alone, click here for that data. Our data doesn’t include all those who are here through other legal immigration programs or those who have entered illegally.

LOL! We know a bunch have left the country to join jihadists but not enough to account for that great a difference.

So, why the discrepancy?  Did the Census Bureau not find about 45,000 or more of them?

Romanians living in London subway demand homes

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

It is not just Muslim migrants over-running Europe and expecting services, here is a story from London about Romanians living in the subway system.  They say they will move if given homes.

 

Romanians camp in subway at Park Lane. Notice the nervous-looking Mom and daughter slipping by them.

 

From the Daily Mail which always seems to find the most interesting news! (hat tip:  ‘pungentpeppers’):

A gang of Romanian beggars sleeping rough on one of London’s most exclusive streets today demanded: ‘We’re EU citizens, give us houses’.

The 40-strong group sleeping in a subway under Park Lane have been accused of turning it into a ‘slum’ having lived in various camps near Marble Arch for 18 months.

Local businesses believe they have driven away customers because of the mess and members of the group urinating in the street and fighting with rivals.

Today the group said they are willing to pack up their cardboard boxes if Westminster Council found them homes.

Read it all.  Besides being a nuisance and responsible for an up-tick in petty crime, local businesses say their ‘camps’ are bad for business—check out the photos!

How much time before we see encampments like these in American subways and parks?

End note:  RRW will be taking a break beginning today after we post a few more stories.  Be back on October 20th and will be able to post your comments then.

Canadian demographer predicts secularists are in decline because religious people have more children

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 14, 2014

Professor Eric Kaufmann:

“The cumulative effect of immigration from religious countries, and religious fertility will be to reverse the secularization process in the West. Not only will the religious eventually triumph over the non-religious, but it is those who are the most extreme in their beliefs who have the largest families.”

The Vancouver Sun

 

As we have often argued on these pages—demography is it—change the people in order to change the future of nations (ours being of particular concern to me!).

We know that some demographers have argued that fecund people—like Muslims and Hispanics—reduce the number of children they have as they become more prosperous and live in first world countries, but this London demographer (raised in Canada) doesn’t see that—even if reduced slightly, the birthrate of religious people still outpaces the secularists.

Read this fascinating analysis of London Professor Kaufmann’s work at the Vancouver Sun where the photo above catches one’s eye for sure!

Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and other well-known atheists consider the decline of religion inevitable as the global population becomes more secular, more educated and more urban.

Last month, a Pew Research poll in the U.S., the world’s most-religious industrialized nation, revealed that three out of four Americans also agree religion appears to be in retreat.

But is it? While secularists are making some inroads in North America and Europe, the new atheists and others are missing a crucial demographic shift as the world’s population has swelled to seven billion.

Those who believe the world is inexorably becoming more secular are overlooking the rise in the developing world of Muslims, Hindus, Catholics and Pentecostals, as well as the phenomenally rapid expansion of sects such as the Amish and ultra-Orthodox Jews.

In a challenge to the secularizing proposition, Eric Kaufmann, a noted London-based demographer, projects that religious people, especially conservatives, will win the race against the non-religious in the 21st century.

Why? Basically because religious women are having far more babies than secular women.

Read on.  There is a lot more.  By the way, I’m afraid that all those non-Muslim religious people (noted by the Professor) combined will not out produce Muslims since their numbers are so much greater to begin with!  I guess Professor Kaufmann isn’t going to tell us that.

The Vancouver Sun directs us to an older story about how immigrants high birthrates affect Canadian taxpayers, here.

Mexican government paying legal fees so illegal alien kids can stay in America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 12, 2014

Now why would they do a thing like that?  Wouldn’t you think that they would need these young people in Mexico—aren’t they Mexico’s future?

Yes, they are—right here in the USA!  They are Mexico’s pipeline to American money!

Can you say remittances!

It is cheaper to assure Mexicans can stay and work in America by paying their legal bills than to have them come home empty-handed.

I remember first hearing about the desire of some Central American governments to keep Temporary Protected Status alive for Salvadorans (for instance) during the Bush years.  Bush even acknowledged in one news report I saw (can’t find it now) that the remittances sent ‘home’ to El Salvador kept the country’s economy propped up!

Why do you think Central American governments turned a blind eye when the ‘UACs’ stormed the US border this summer?

Here is the news I’m seeing everywhere about this Mexican dirty trick.  From Breitbart (via Drudge):

The government of Mexico is paying to help its citizens who are living illegally in the United States avoid deportation.

According to a report from National Public Radio, the Mexican government through its 50 consulates around the United States has been helping to fund low-income illegal immigrants to apply for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA — which shields illegal immigrants from deportation and allows them to work in the U.S.

NPR’s report details the story of Tania Guzman, an illegal immigrant who said the cost of applying for DACA worried her, but she was able to afford it after her pro-bono lawyer from Public Counsel told her she could access financial help from the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles.

Mexico paid for all Guzman’s attorney fees and application fees, according to NPR. In the end Guzman told NPR she paid just $50.

The report explains that since 2012, the year DACA began, the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles has assisted more then 260 Mexican illegal immigrants apply for protections under DACA.

Julian Escutia, an official with the Mexican Embassy in Washington, told NPR that it does not keep track of how many illegal immigrants’ DACA applications they fund, and that funding is “on a case-by case basis.”

“Our main objective is the well-being of our nationals wherever they are,” he said. “So what we want for them is that they are successful and really continue contributing to this country [the U.S.],” she told NPR.  [What a joke, it is all about the money for Mexico!—ed]

It is about remittances!  See this detailed report from the World Bank from this past spring entitled:

‘Remittances to developing countries to stay robust this year, despite increased deportations of migrant workers, says WB’

The next time you see one of those economic reports (promoted by the likes of “Welcoming America”) purporting to show that immigrants are an economic plus to a city—that they are working, paying taxes, starting businesses, and drawing federal welfare bucks to a city—check to see if the report includes how many US dollars those same immigrants are sending out of your city to their “home” country.  I wager that figure is never included in the analysis!

Regarding the graph:  Go to this Congressional report and see that in 2010 (a slow economic year!) $48 Billion US dollars in remittances flowed out of the country to the developing world.  I’m sure there are newer figures available, and that the number is much greater, but these graphs give you a good idea.

Also, see this post I wrote at PTPR in 2013—Money the principle driver of foreign governments’ interest in US “immigration reform.”

For all of our coverage of ‘Unaccompanied minors’ go here.

Update of sorts!  It is an older article, but a reader reminds us of this story from last month that is further evidence of Mexico and the Obama Administration protecting Mexico’s workers in America (US Signs Agreement with Mexico to Protect Mexican Workers–Including Illegals).

Comment worth noting: Reverse African out-migration through colonization of Africa by first-world countries

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2014

Isn’t that a novel and sensible idea!

Editors note:  We have a category (comments worth noting) here at RRW where we post comments from readers that you might have missed at individual posts or which came to me directly.  In response to our post From Catalonia to Calais…. reader ‘momodoom’ suggests “historically proven” colonization by advanced countries would make Africa a more appealing place to live.   Yes indeed!

Momodoom:

Africa in the late 19th Century. Is it better-off today? Obviously not! https://resourcesforhistoryteachers.wikispaces.com/WHII15

All these Africans (and Middle Easterners) fleeing their homes for the green grass of Europe! But really – who wouldn’t want to leave Africa? What does it have to make people want to stay there?

Nothing.

Well, what could Africa do to become more appealing to people? What could the world do to make Africa more appealing…?

Colonization! Historically proven to make Africa a more civilized place.

The U.N. should sponsor a program to allow any Western country in to various failed Third World states. They would “conquer” the country insofar as its legal system and enforcement, and the ensuing lack of corruption and greater stability would allow for investment – both from within the country, and from interested parties throughout the world, creating improved economic circumstances which might persuade their youth to stay in-country.

There would be a plethora of details to be worked out, but it would be a far better system than the one currently in place: Western countries propping up failed and corrupted states with aid money, who then produce excess population which then proceeds to leave said failed state to come and invade the Western countries.

I see this as a win-win!!

Can you hear the hissing now from the politically-correct one-worlders?
