Illegal Immigrants and Sanctuary Cities – The Hypocritical Oath

The proposal to release illegal immigrants from detention centers at the border into sanctuary cities is making the Democrats crazy!   Why?   Because they don’t want the immigrants in their cities, they just want everyone to think they do because it is political posturing. Whether Trump releases them in the cities or not was likely not the point, the reaction is likely the point.  All one need do is watch Sarah Sanders smile!  Every Democrat has vocally disputed the idea claiming such an action would put people at risk… And therein they have cremated their entire agenda that illegals present – no risk.

More often than not Trump has taken the position of taunting the media and Democrats into revealing their faces without makeup.  And the sight ain’t pretty.

There are currently 560 sanctuary cities across the US.   California is the only state that has legislation establishing statewide sanction. The concept of sanctuary is stating that all immigrants including undocumented and illegal – are welcome.   The caveat?  Unless they are imported by Trump.   Same people, different outcome.  These cities have also refused to cooperate with ICE for the purposes of detention and deportation.

Various studies have shown that sanctuary cities actually lower crime rate when taking in illegal immigrants. These studies were conducted by three journals: Urban Affairs Review, Justice Quarterly and Center For American Progress. Justice Quarterly has an ‘impact factor’ of 3 which means it has little to no relative value in the academic world.   For comparison, in 2014, an average rating was 41. Urban Affairs has an ‘impact factor’ of 1.8, is owned by Sage Publications which was embroiled in controversy for publishing a completely hoaxed article.   And the Center For American Progress? It is John Podesta’s ‘think tank’, run by a former aide to Obama and Hillary.  Say no more…

Of course if these studies are true, then Sanctuary cities would be desperate for more illegal immigrants so as to lower all crime throughout their city.   But the bluff was called and suddenly the wolves find themselves acting like sheep.

What are some of the actual statistics? San Francisco has a violent crime rate 59% higher than the California average, and 87% higher than the national average. Property crime is 147% higher than the state average and 161% higher than the national average.   The cities with the largest population of unauthorized migrants include: Seattle, Boston, LA, New York City, Atlanta, and Philadelphia.   All of which have relatively high crime rates.   Does this correspond to illegal status? There is no definable report that can say either yes or no.

Part of the statistical issue is that illegals are not convicted of a crime because they are deported. Therefore the statistics are skewed and can not accurately detail a comparison.

During Obama’s presidency, he deported 2.9 million illegal immigrants. Bush – 2 million.

The two largest gangs in Central America are MS-13 and Barrio-18.   They come from the Northern Triangle which includes Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and are said to have the highest murder rate in the world!   It is estimated that upwards of 50,000 Barrio-18 members ‘relocated’ to the US, and about 10,000 MS-13 members. In 2007 it was estimated that there were roughly 800,000 gang members across the US. By 2011, that number had increased to 1.4 million.   Despite their relative statistical numbers, as of 2011 gangs accounted for 13% of all homicides and 50% of all shootings in NYC. In an effort to not profile, given the statistics showed race and ethnicity, many states have since purged all data related to gangs.  Hence today, getting actual information is impossible.  In addition, cities, including LA, have been cited for ‘under-reporting’ of crime in order to reflect a better statistic.  Despite the ‘under-reporting’, gang related crimes increased 63% and then 33% between 2014 and 2016.  Somewhat like – Germany.

It is estimated that 60% of all gang members are illegal immigrants – protected from ICE by Sanctuary cities.

LA, Orange County and Santa Clara County have the highest rate of releasing gang members from possible ICE detention. Five counties in California have the highest number of illegal immigrants, LA, San Jose (Santa Clara County), Riverside, San Diego and San Francisco. They account for roughly 25% of the entire illegal population in the US.

If you are a Sanctuary city, your agenda is to welcome all – therefore to suddenly state that ‘Trump’s proposal’ is fear mongering is stating that illegals are something to fear, not welcome, given the gang statistics and crime rates. Still, the hypocrisy is lost somewhere along the Porky Pig stutter.

The UK provides sanctuary to asylum seekers and per national policy disperses the immigrants to different towns and cities so as to not create a burden to a handful of cities. Essentially, this is the same proposal Trump has asserted.

Of course the obvious terminology that sanctuary cities don’t seem to recognize is ‘illegal’.   As in breaking the Law. By advocating breaking the law, it begs for a discussion as to what other laws are breakable without consequence?

And that’s when Porky Pig makes another entry.

Socialism: The US Military – Lesson 101

The ‘darling’ Socialists are quick to bring to light the US government agencies that they deem to be ‘socialist’ in order to defend Socialism as a defacto solution to all that ails the US.   “The Military is Socialist”.   Really?  

It would appear that few are learned in the definition of Socialism:

“The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.”

If you don’t like that one, here are three more:

  1. any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.
  2. a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
  3. a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

The common denominator of these definitions?  Goods. Property.   Production.   Ownership.

The Military does not provide goods.  Does not designate property.  Does not produce goods.  The Military is a volunteer organization in which they members agree to perform services for a wage.  Within that ‘voluntary service’ they are provided certain benefits to add to their wage base.   And if they do not perform according to the designated rules they may be fired.  Granted, the Military is required to have guns and jets and bombs as an adjunct product of their service.   But it is a product of their service – not a luxury.   Cars, houses, clothes, food, toys, etc.. are luxuries produced on our behalf.  Those are the ‘goods’ referred to in the definition of Socialism.  That is the basis of ‘economy’.

In a Socialist ‘economy’ those luxuries disappear.   Shortages become the norm.   In the 1980’s when Poland was governed into Socialism, the waiting period to buy a car was 7 years.  But you were required to advance that cost and wait.  The waiting period to lease an apartment was 5-7 years, but you were required to advance the rent.   Supermarket shelves were empty save for endless bottles of ‘vinegar’.

In Venezuela, they no longer have drinking water.

That – is – Socialism.

The fact that ‘taxpayers’ are charged for that Military wage is a benefit to taxpayers and has existed since the beginning of militaries.   When the Socialists within the US, Gabbard, O’Casio, Sanders, Beto, Warren, etc… reference their embrace of Socialism, they refer to a different definition and are simply attempting to muddle the truth.  Yes the government operates .  It exists.  It is funded by taxpayers for the express purpose of performing duties and overseeing various organizations including the military, including our public school system, our public universities, our police and fire department.

And it is supposed to be – free from bias, free from prejudice, free from propaganda.   As a taxpayer funded enterprise.

Capitalism:  “Capitalism is an economic system based upon private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Characteristics central to capitalism include private property, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system, and competitive markets.”

The basic – the largess discrepancy between the definition ‘acquired’ by the Socialists in defending their rule is ‘economy’.

Which makes their entire defensive platform a house of cards.

They do not even understand the most basic conceptual definition of the platform they espouse. And that makes them ‘uneducated’.

The fact that the pure definitions have to be even be discussed is further evidence that the Socialist education system adopted in the US and the EU has collapsed into a dummied version of apocalyptic proportions in which history, and current events, are corrupted. The burning of books, the burning of knowledge.

The fact that these individuals would support that FIRE, is even more heinous, for it reveals the soul beneath.

It is wearying trying to educate the minds of those who have chosen to bury their heads in the sand.   It is wearying to try and regurgitate what history has already taught.  It is wearying to listen to people who have never experienced the devastations refuse to listen to those who have…
