Why? Immigration as defined in the constitution is one thing solely handled by the federal gov’t. This means the states really do not have a choice in the matter unless they want to secede…which they won’t do. karl denniger sums it up nicely as follows:
Rick Scott was on this morning going on about his “letter” to the Federal Government, in which other governors have sent as well. This sort of milk toast crap accomplishes exactly nothing.
Here’s the law: Immigration is a federal matter. The States cannot be compelled to act but they are barred by interfering. To do so would be to effectively secede which is an effective threat only if you intend to actually do it, and that means backing up your words with acts, which nobody has the balls for (and incidentally, I’m not convinced there’s any real support for it either.)
These “letters” serve exactly one purpose: Political cover for when, not if, a so-called ‘refugee’ is a terrorist and decides to start shooting up or blowing up things here.
The only answer to this problem comes from the federal side (which won’t happen because neither Congress or Obama will do a damn thing) or a mass movement by the American public.
Make no mistake folks, you either stand up now or you’ll get shot or blown up. ISIS isn’t going away; the group is a creation of our funding and both malfeasance and misfeasance by the west. Our coddling of people who intend to commit mass-murder and are willing to play the long game to do it will be our destruction if we don’t cut it out.
Consider this: We bring these so-called “refugees” into the country and then pay them to live. This means they can sit at home and **** like rabbits, and we will fund that. So guess what they’ll do? Exactly that; producing three, four, five, six or more kids.
Remember that the reason Washington is doing this (along with Europe) is that the cost of having and raising kids has gotten so out of hand that citizens are refusing to do so. That cost is not just economic; it’s also social in that we’ve destroyed the ability of half the population (men) to be reasonably certain they can participate in that creation and raising of their own progeny. This drop in the birth rate by people willing and able to work means that the tax base is threatened especially when you are counting on exponential growth to pay for all the political promises you made.
But there’s a problem with importing “refugees” to “fix” this demographic disaster: Those people have no intention of funding the pension and medical promises made to our citizens nor will they assimilate into our culture. What they will do is take all the handouts we will give them, making as many children as we’re willing to pay them to create, and indoctrinate them with their culture. They will work in the underground economy which not only fails to contribute to the tax base but worse, tends to intersect with criminal elements that we’d rather not stoke (like, for example, running guns to drug lords.)
Germany is on-course to be majority Muslim immigrant and child-of-immigrant within fifty years. So is most of the rest of Europe if they don’t cut this crap out. We’re behind them, but not by much.
It is our social welfare policy that makes this sort of invasion possible and it is foisted on the people in the name of “compassion”; this looks exactly nothing like the sort of positive and functional immigration that this nation was built through.
Your ancestors probably came through Ellis Island but none of them had access to any sort of “social safety net” that paid them to produce children and funded their every life need and want. We did that over the last fifty years and what we got for it is an explosion of Mexicans living off everyone else and now a bunch of so-called “refugees” that are nearly all fighting-age men.
Understand this folks: These policies are nothing more than an attempt by the worms in Washington DC to get out of the corner they painted themselves into through granting medical monopolies and then promising to cover the ever-ratcheting higher costs that those monopolies shove down the throats of our citizens.
That’s what’s behind both the intentional tolerance of illegal immigration and now the importation of hundreds of thousands of so-called “refugees.” The problem is that these people have zero intention of providing the funds necessary to make those promises good and they cannot be compelled to do so; instead, they will take the welfare we hand to them and live off it, cranking out more and more children that will be raised to live like them, sucking off the government teat and increasing cost rather than revenue. Worse, those children will be citizens, at least in the US and once they gain majority status there goes our Constitutional Republic.
I’m sure you think this is alarmist nonsense, but you only need to listen to what’s spoken at a “La Raza” rally to hear it with your own ears. Those folks have no intention of being Americans; their intent is to take America. Likewise, these “refugees” have no intention to assimilate and be Americans; they intend to take from America and, when their numbers are sufficient, to take America.
Our policy on immigration is literally suicidal; no nation can take in people who have no intention of becoming one with that nation but instead come with the intention of exploiting their welfare systems and overrunning the country and its government.
That’s what’s going on here folks — these people are not stupid, but those in Washington (and in the halls of Europe) are. They believe these “immigrants” and “refugees” will assimilate into their cultures and that their welfare handouts are “temporary assistance.” They, and we, are wrong. Those handouts are simply taken as a means of supporting the production of as many children as these “refugees” are able to produce and yet both these immigrants and their children utterly refuse to becomeFrench, German or American — at best they hyphenate their claimed nationality and at worst they don’t even bother with doing that.
