Sheriff Babeu Warns of ICE Fostering Illegal Alien Criminality

On Tuesday, I reported about the administration’s negligence regarding foreigner crime: Arizona Sheriff Condemns Feds for Irresponsible Release of Dangerous Aliens into American Communities. Sheriff Paul Babeu held a presser where he explained the increased lawlessness that the government is now promoting by its criminal-friendly policies toward illegal aliens. Citizens should be furious that public safety is being ignored by the Obama administration, and polling suggests many Americans have been paying attention.

On Thursday, Fox Business’ Stuart Varney was appropriately shocked that violent foreign criminals are routinely released into America by the feds. Yes, it is truly appalling that Washington and its liberal cronies at the local level believe importing a future Democrat majority is worth the harm innocent Americans suffer.

VARNEY: Sheriff, have I got this right, that you arrested people for an offense, but you had to release them because they were foreigners — is that accurate?

BABEU: Well not just that. That happens all the time in my county and the state of Arizona and in fact throughout America. When it comes to immigration law, it appears there is no law because there’s no consequences. And what’s happened in the last two years alone, Stuart, that 67,000 of the most violent criminals in the Western Hemisphere, members of the cartels, people who are kidnapping people, raping them, murdering them — hundreds and hundreds of them that are being released into our community. And I pointed out three just this week that were released: one from Sudan, one from Iraq, one from Russia, all tried and convicted of both kidnapping numerous aggravated assaults in numerous states and also two of them were convicted of murder and they were released into my community here in Arizona.

Rasmussen Poll: Voters Say Deport the Criminals and Build the Wall

It looks like Americans have noticed the shocking and preventable crimes committed by undeported illegal alien offenders over the last little while, like the murders of Kate Steinle and Marilyn Pharis, both residents of enforcement-phobic California.

Kate Steinle was shot dead as she walked with her father on a San Francisco pier by a five-times-deported Mexican criminal.

Interestingly, Rasmussen points to the positive result for “path to citizenship” in a Gallup poll, while noting that the future “requirement” dodge goes unspecified.

Voters Want to Build A Wall, Deport Felon Illegal Immigrants, Rasmussen Resports, August 19, 2015

As far as voters are concerned – and not just Republicans –  Donald Trump has a winning formula for fighting illegal immigration.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 70% of Likely Republican Voters agree with the GOP presidential hopeful that the United States should build a wall along the Mexican border to help stop illegal immigration. Seventeen percent (17%) of GOP voters disagree, while 13% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Ninety-two percent (92%) of Republicans agree that the United States should deport all illegal immigrants who have been convicted of a felony in this country. Only four percent (4%) disagree.

Among all likely voters, 51% favor building a wall on the border; 37% disagree, and 12% are not sure. Eighty percent (80%) support the deportation of all illegal immigrants convicted of a felony; only 11% are opposed.

Trump made both proposals in a policy paper he released this past weekend that calls for getting tough on illegal immigration. He cites a Rasmussen Reports survey to back up his proposal to end automatic citizenship for children born to illegal immigrants in this country. Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters disagree with the current federal policy that says a child born to an illegal immigrant here is automatically a U.S. citizen.

Just 34% favor President Obama’s plan to protect up to five million illegal immigrants from deportation.  
Most voters continue to think instead that the United States is not aggressive enough in deporting those who are here illegally.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on August 17-18, 2015 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Gallup released a new survey last week with the headline, “In U.S., 65% Favor Path to Citizenship for Illegal Immigrants.”  But the actual question shows that 65% of Americans favor a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants “if they meet certain requirements over time.” Unspecified in the question is what those requirements are and the length of time in question.

Valedictorians! Don’t Deport the Valedictorians!

Failed election consultant Karl Rove is still showing up on Fox News to condemn immigration enforcement. On Wednesday, he was energetic during his Trump bashing, stooping to the la Raza argument that illegal alien valedictorians should not be deported, even though Mexico etc. needs them more than we do.

Below, demanding DREAMer kiddies pretend to be scholarly in graduation outfits, though hispanics are school dropout champs.

So Karl Rove had his little whiteboard, with a poll showing that half of Republicans prefer a system of legalization as long as there are requirements for the illegals. Of course, those prerequisites would never happen; instead, the millions of future Democrats would be rubber-stamped into voter-hood, as has happened previously in Clinton’s Citizenship USA program.

And Rove actually used the Raza meme of alien valedictorians, though hispanic academic achievers are the exception and not the rule.

ROVE: Thirty-one percent said deport them all. Now my suspicion is that 31% would be a smaller number if you attach to it what Mr. Trump also says which is that you take children of illegal aliens who were born in the United States and you ship them out of the country as well with their families — you know, they have constitutional right under the Fourteenth Amendment to US citizenship, having been born on US soil, and I think you know we’d have a lot of stories of, you know, you know, here in Texas there was a series of stories about valedictorians of our high schools who would be forced to leave …

Arizona Sheriff Condemns Feds for Irresponsible Release of Dangerous Aliens into American Communities

On Tuesday, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu held a press event to draw attention to the continuing release of violent illegal aliens onto American streets. He chose three diverse characters as examples to demonstrate how little our government cares about the citizens’ safety.

Below, a Sudanese, a Russian and an Iraqi walk out of a prison — that would be (l-r) Musa Salah Abdelaziz Abdalla, Dennis Valerievitch Tsoukanov and Nasser Hanna Hermez. All have lengthy criminal histories but were released by ICE anyway.

Arizona3criminalsReleasedHermezAbdalla

Terrible crimes are occurring because of liberal weakness toward illegal alien criminals. On July 1, Kate Steinle was shot to death in San Francisco by a five-times-deported Mexican drug dealer who had not been repatriated. Marilyn Pharis, an Air Force veteran, was attacked in her Santa Maria CA apartment on Jul 24 by two men, one of which was an illegal who had been released rather than deported.

Yesterday I reported on illegal alien Francisco Chavez who beat a two-year-old girl nearly to death, who nevertheless was released by San Luis Obispo authorities on bond and unsurprisingly didn’t show up for his court date.

Americans pay billions of dollars in taxes to support a system of police, border security, courts and prisons. It’s therefore reasonable for us to expect a first-world level of public safety, but we’re not getting it. Why are illegal alien criminals treated with such deference?

Sheriff Babeu had two crime victim relatives with him to speak, the mother of Brandon Mendoza and the father of Grant Ronnebeck.

Here’s a local news report from Fox 10 in Phoenix:

Arizona sheriff blasts Feds for releasing violent immigrants into communities, Fox News, August 18, 2015

An Arizona lawman blasted the federal government Tuesday over an Immigration and Customs Enforcement policy he said sprang criminal immigrants on the law-abiding public.

With the loved ones of crime victims at his side, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu spotlighted three criminals, including a Russian national who set a police informant on fire, an Iraqi who killed his two-year-old daughter and an illegal immigrant from Sudan who has committed multiple assaults in two states. Babeu said ICE set all three and hundreds like them free in communities such as his, and that even its new “Law Enforcement Notification System,” designed to let local authorities know of pending releases, is too little, too late.

“You don’t have to be a sheriff to realize that this is going to end very badly for people,” Babeu said. “You don’t release murderers into the state of Arizona and somehow think that they are just going to go about their business and try to find a job.”

Babeu said immigrant criminals should be deported after completing prison sentences, especially when they have shown a propensity for violence. The three criminals, who Babeu pointedly noted were not from Mexico, were all released in Arizona in the last week. Continue reading this article

Illegal Alien Child Beater Fails to Appear in Court

FranciscoChavezChildAbuserA violent illegal alien who was released from jail for a charge of bone-breaking assault did not show up for his court date. Whatever did authorities have in mind when they allowed bail for a man who was definitely a flight risk?

That’s a rhetorical question in California, where the most dangerous foreigners like to reside because no other state is so criminal friendly.

The alien in question is Francisco Chavez (pictured), who was arrested a couple weeks ago for beating a toddler nearly to death, yet he was allowed bail. He has a local record too, so San Luis Obispo authorities cannot claim ignorance about him:

Mexican national accused of abusing toddler is freed despite request from immigration officials, San Luis Obispo, August 4, 2015

. . . Chavez similarly has a criminal history in San Luis Obispo dating back to 2006, when he was convicted of felony assault and served about 180 days in County Jail. Court records show he had been arrested at least four other times on suspicion of various offenses, including a 2011 felony conviction for possessing a controlled substance for sale.

According to ICE, Chavez was previously deported in February 2014 following a San Luis Obispo County conviction for drunken driving.

Apparently the Mexican could have been kept in jail if he had been charged with a worse crime. Does this screw-up reveal Chicago-level corruption or California stupidity? Chavez is likely back in Mexico now.

It’s not like the citizens have a right to expect some semblance of public safety for all the taxes we pay.

Illegal immigrant a no-show in court, Cal Coast News, August 17 ,2015

An illegal immigrant whom the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office recently let out of jail did not appear Thursday at his first court appearance for the alleged near-fatal beating of a 2-year-old girl.

Francisco Chavez, 27, is accused of nearly beating to death the young daughter of his live-in girlfriend. The two-year-old reportedly suffered a broken leg, two broken arms, a compressed spine, bruises and a urinary tract infection. She was in the hospital with a 107-degree fever days following the beating.

On Thursday, after Chavez failed to appear, Judge Dodie Harman ordered a warrant for his arrest with bail set at $600,000. Continue reading this article

Robot Restaurants Are Accelerated by Excessive Wage Demands

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot: fast-food workers have not been paying attention to what is happening in their industry — that automation is coming on strong — and their ignorance is about to bite them. Business owners have looked at worker demands for $15/hour versus the cost of burger-making robots, and the machines will likely be brought in sooner than they would have otherwise. This development was obvious and predicted earlier.

Tablets or kiosks for ordering are an easy first step in restaurant automation, being relatively inexpensive, and have been introduced in McDonalds, as shown below.

The brief video below quotes Alexandros Vardakostas, the creator of the robot hamburger maker, who remarked, “The device isn’t meant to make employees more efficient, it’s meant to completely remove the need for them altogether.”

It’s criminal that left-wing activists have sold out the workers over unrealistic pay raises. Seattle required local wages be $15 and small businesses have closed as a result. Doubling the minimum wage will do that.

Teen unemployment is bad and getting worse because of immigration, automation and now crazy wage demands causing more rapid entry of smart machines into the workplace. Youth unemployment keeps young people from getting the first step on the jobs ladder because of the rapidly changing workplace and ignorant reactions to those changes.

The article below provides a brief history of how fast food became less hands-on over decades, requiring fewer workers. The fast-food industry employs millions now, but is on the verge of downsizing considerably.

And remember, the chainsaw reduction of jobs caused by automation is only beginning. The technology is expanding in ways that are hard to imagine. Oxford University researchers estimate that 47 percent of US jobs are at risk for some form of automation by 2033.

Further immigration is therefore unnecessary and unwise. We will need every single one of those remaining jobs for Americans.

Minimum-wage offensive could speed arrival of robot-powered restaurants, Washington Post, August 16, 2015

Crowded. That’s how Ed Rensi remembers what life was like working at McDonald’s in 1966. There were about double the number of people working in the store — 70 or 80, as opposed to the 30 or 40 there today — because preparing the food just took a lot more doing.

“When I first started at McDonald’s making 85 cents an hour, everything we made was by hand,” Rensi said — from cutting the shortcakes to stirring syrups into the milk for shakes. Over the years, though, ingredients started to arrive packaged and pre-mixed, ready to be heated up, bagged and handed out the window.

“More and more of the labor was pushed back up the chain,” said Rensi, who went on to become chief executive of the company in the 1990s. The company kept employing more grill cooks and cashiers as it expanded, but each one of them accounted for more of each store’s revenue as more sophisticated cooking techniques allowed each to become more productive.

The industry could be ready for another jolt as a ballot initiative to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour nears in the District and as other campaigns to boost wages gain traction around the country. About 30 percent of the restaurant industry’s costs come from salaries, so burger-flipping robots — or at least super-fast ovens that expedite the process — become that much more cost-competitive if the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is doubled.

“The problem with the ­minimum-wage offensive is that it throws the accounting of the restaurant industry totally upside down,” said Harold Miller, vice president of franchise development for Persona Pizzeria, who also consults for other chains. “My position is: Pay your people properly, keep them longer, treat them right, and robots are going to be helpful in doing that, because it will help the restaurateur survive.”

Many chains are already at work looking for ingenious ways to take humans out of the picture, threatening workers in an industry that employs 2.4 million wait staffers, nearly 3 million cooks and food preparers and many of the nation’s 3.3 million cashiers. Continue reading this article

Jeff Bezos Predicts Amazon Drones Will Be As Common as Delivery Trucks

The Amazon company has been a leader in replacing human workers with automation. Its Kiva semi-automated warehouse system enables orders to be processed and shipped rapidly. The robots bring the merchandise to human workers who pack the items up in boxes for shipment. Manual dexterity keeps humans employed in that department — for now. The company is looking for robots that can perform that function also.

Now Bezos is talking up his drone delivery scheme, as he first announced on Sixty Minutes in 2013. In a recent interview with the UK Telegraph, he remarked, “One day Prime Air deliveries will be as common as seeing a mail truck. The technical problems are very straight ahead. The biggest issue, or the biggest thing that needs to be worked on, is the regulatory side.”

Below, the Amazon Prime Air drone may soon be infesting American neighborhoods.

AmazonPrimeDrone

It’s surprising how little the safety aspect has come up in the discussion of drones. They have spinning blades and have been known to crash into people. Recent news reports have emphasized the danger of drones colliding with airplanes potentially causing a major crash, but they have already hit a number of people. In June, a woman was struck and knocked unconscious  by an errant drone in Seattle. In Marblehead, Massachusetts, a man was hit on the head by a drone as he attended a Memorial Day parade last May. The March issue of the Scientific American had a list of other injuries in a piece titled, 5 Epic Drone Flying Failures.

If drones were to take over many of Amazon’s delivery chores, that would be a case of flying robots taking American jobs, as opposed to the largely land-based machines up to this point. In any case, UPS drivers should be concerned.

No surprise with the trend toward automation — it’s only going to get worse. Oxford researchers have predicted that nearly half of US jobs are susceptible to being computerized by 2033.

Plus, America won’t need any immigrant workers in the future post-human workforce.

Jeff Bezos: Amazon drones will be ‘as common as seeing a mail truck’, CNN Money, August 16, 2015

Amazon delivery drones are still “years” away, but CEO Jeff Bezos said someday they will be “as common as seeing a mail truck.”

Bezos told the Telegraph in London that the biggest hurdle Prime Air has to clear isn’t related to technology, but regulators. Continue reading this article

Britain Celebrates VJ Day as Invasion Proceeds in Greece with UK as the Goal

How disconnected has the West gotten from the basics of survival? Indications are discouraging. One example is the remembrance of the WWII victory this week while at the same time a future conflict is being created by Europe’s stupid opening its borders to many thousands of likely enemies.

Below, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, danced with a WWII veteran, navy sailor Jim Booth, 94, during a celebration of VJ Day in London.

BritainVJDayCamillaDanceWWIIvet

Meanwhile, on the other end of Europe, an invasion is occurring because the political leaders of the EU are too politically correct to block the entrance of historic enemies. Impoverished Greece has borne a lot of the brunt this year, focused on its island of Kos located just three miles from Turkey, which is happy to wave through the thousands of illegal aliens to make them Europe’s problem.

Greece is struggling just to process the thousands of demanding foreigners who want to get on to Britain which reputedly has the most generous benefits for moochers. The crowd below is waiting to take a ferry from Kos to Athens so they can be on their way to better pickings in the UK.

GreeceMigrantsAwaitFerryToAthens

The video clip below says 140,000 migrants have arrived in Greece so far this year. Many more illegal aliens are taking the Mediterranean route from north Africa to Italy. One estimate is that a total of 250,000 have entered Europe this year. That’s a lot of future trouble that never had to happen.

Many of the incoming Muslims will find that European streets are not paved in gold, nor are there well paying jobs for them because unemployment is a problem on the continent already. Many will hang out at the local mosque which likely preaches jihad against the hated infidel Europeans. Violent conflict is practically guaranteed because of the idiot policy of opening Europe’s borders to one and all — particularly to Muslims who are enemies of 1400 years standing.

In WWII, the West fought against totalitarians; today it welcomes them out of liberal naivete — apparently the idea of having “enemies” is too politically incorrect to accept. In the 1940’s, Britain had Churchill as a war leader who declared, “We shall never surrender.” Last year, Paul Weston was arrested for quoting Churchill about Islam — the current threat — in public.

In a hint of what monsters Europe has welcomed, the sub-tribes of Islam recently rioted among themselves on Kos, chanting “Afghanistan!”, “Pakistan!” and “Iran!” just like the gangsters they are.

Migrants brawl on Greek island as refugee ship lies empty, Reuters, August 15, 2015

Migrants desperate to get off the Greek island of Kos fought each other on Saturday while nearby a passenger ship chartered to house and process refugees lay empty 24 hours after it had arrived.

Outside the island’s main police station, about 50 migrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan andIran threw stones and exchanged blows as tempers boiled over in the intense mid-summer heat. Riot police stood by without intervening.

The migrants have little chance of getting aboard the ship, the Eleftherios Venizelos, as priority is being given to Syrians, who are treated as refugees as they are fleeing their country’s civil war and have greater rights under international law than economic migrants.

All have crossed the narrow stretch of water from Turkey in small boats and dinghies as they try to find a better life in Europe and leave behind either conflict or poverty.

A few hundred meters from the Kos police station, the white-painted ANEK Lines vessel remained at a quayside with only its crew aboard a day after it had docked while Greek officials debated among themselves how the Syrians should be let aboard.

Nearly a quarter of a million migrants have crossed the Mediterranean to Europe this year, according to the International Organisation for Migration. Of these, about half have come to the Greek islands, with numbers surging in the summer when calmer weather makes the crossing marginally less risky.

Early on Saturday, about 300 Syrians had gathered on the quayside in the hope of getting aboard the ship – a car ferry belonging to ANEK Lines which operates routes to the Greek islands and across the Adriatic to Italy – where about 2,500 people are due to be housed and processed.

The Greek government chartered the vessel to ease conditions on Kos, where several thousand migrants are staying in hotels if they can afford it, or more often sleeping in tents or the open. Continue reading this article

How Technology Shrunk the Workforce in One Newspaper

The Argus-Leader newspaper of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has been running a series of articles this week titled Robot Week stories: How technology is changing the workforce. It covers some common topics like fast food jobs and medicine while considering the common skepticism that a jobs revolution is not happening.

One piece is an interview with Martin Ford, the author of Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future, who opined that South Dakota is somewhat atypical but still faces automation performing more jobs.

Agricultural technology is important in South Dakota. Farmers appreciate milking automation that frees them from having to tend to the cows every 12 hours. Plus the increased efficiency is remarkable: a state Agriculture Secretary said his father once employed 45 people and now the farm is bigger with more stock and operates with eight workers because of technology.

The article on publishing technology struck home because I worked in the field for some years while it was changing from paper layout to pages produced entirely on machines. What’s eye-catching here is how the newspaper workforce shrunk from 310 workers to 140 over a period of years, like many other businesses where greater efficiency brought by technology has meant that fewer people were needed to do the work.

It’s another reminder that America shouldn’t continue importing low-skilled foreigners via immigration. Oxford researchers have estimated that nearly half of US jobs are susceptible to automation by 2033, and all evidence indicates that smart machines are creating substantial job loss now and the trend is partially responsible for the jobless recovery.

Computer software journalists are coming after my job, By Steve Young, Argus-Leader, August 13, 2015

Not so many years ago, before the Internet encroached into the journalism industry, I came to work each day here at the Argus Leader with 310 other people.

People laying out the news pages. People working the phones and trying to sell subscriptions. People editing copy and making sure we wrote and spelled correctly. People who took a newspaper out to your house when the delivery boy or girl failed you.

It just doesn’t seem like it was all that many years ago. Yet here I am still coming to work at the Argus Leader every day, but now there are only 140 walking in the door with me.

Where did all the others go?

The layout people work in a centralized hub in Des Moines, Iowa, now. The copy editors? We edit our own copy (and we can debate how well we do that later). The telemarketers working the phones trying to drum up subscriptions? Put out of a job by the Do Not Call mandate. Continue reading this article

Another Muslim Immigrant Is Charged with Jihad Crimes

On Monday, Nader Saadeh, a 20-year-old Jordanian immigrant (or “New Jersey Man” according to the AP) appeared in court to be charged with terror-related crimes. He and some high school friends had big jihad plans to blow up New York City landmarks in the despised America and to help out ISIS with its war in the Middle East. Saadeh and his posse showed up in the July 4 arrests when authorities feared a major attack on the patriotic holiday.

Below, Nader Saadeh hoped to set up his own little jihad army to crush the infidels.

NaderSaadehJerseyISIS

Don’t the instances of “homegrown” jihad seem to be on the uptick? The Independence Day threats, the Chattanooga jihad murders of military personnel, the recent conviction of an Uzbek refugee (“Boise Man”) for terrorism charges have happened in recent weeks.

Investors Business Daily has detected a pattern, particularly in the 70 arrests in this country for ISIS-related plots, and concludes we have a Fifth Column among us. Can we talk about ending Muslim immigration now?

ISIS Organizing Small Armies Inside America, IBD, August 12, 2015

Homeland Insecurity: The FBI’s arrest of a group of New Jersey and New York Muslims trying to organize a “small army” for the Islamic State leaves little doubt we are facing a full-blown Islamic insurgency inside our borders.

According to a just-released federal criminal complaint, five young Muslim men tied to IS were busted conspiring to recruit a small army for the terror group in New Jersey and New York.

The busts bring to 70 the number of IS-inspired terrorists arrested in this country in homeland plots.

Meantime, the FBI reports that all 56 of its field offices have active investigations against other IS suspects.

It’s now clear we’re besieged by a Fifth Column. Yet the White House fatuously insists these are unrelated, unconnected, isolated, one-off “lone wolf” incidents. Continue reading this article

Governor John Kasich Gushes over Illegal Alien Job Thieves as ‘Law-Abiding’

It’s disappointing to see a Republican governor who has dealt closely with the nuts and bolts of the economy swoon over lawbreaking foreigners in the country who are stealing American jobs. He appeared on the Laura Ingraham radio show on Thursday and she tried to pin him down on the job thievery.

Kasich’s job as Governor of Ohio is to provide for the safety and welfare of Americans residing in his state, not welcome illegal Mexicans et al to drive down wages to benefit the wealthy. It’s amazing he can talk so callously when a record number of Americans — 93.8 million — are not in the workforce. Governors should be working to get those dropped out citizens working again rather than speaking cheerfully of cheap-working foreigners who are a big part of the problem.

Kasich is adding to the difficulty by piling on the myth that America needs foreign workers, despite decades of open borders allowing millions of aliens and now automation coming on strong to take even more jobs. He is a sappy advertising magnet for millions more illegals from the third world.

Listen to the 14 minute audio clip here.

Kasich: Illegals are Law-Abiding, Provide Valuable Services, Laura Ingraham Show, August 13, 2015

Today on The Laura Ingraham Show, Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) addressed his controversial views on immigration policy. Yesterday in New Hampshire, Kasich raised addressed the “significant contributions” of illegals to the economy and his support for a pathway to legalization. Today, Kasich emphatically endorsed building a wall to secure the border, but showed little empathy for the American workers displaced by those who are already in the country illegally. Kasich then addressed illegal immigrants as American citizens saying, “we don’t need to be picking one person over the other…let’s not be pitting one American against another,” referencing competition between illegal immigrants and Americans.

Partial Transcript:

Ingraham: Yesterday when you were in New Hampshire you made an appearance in which you said immigrants contribute significantly to the economy and when you spoke about a path to, I guess, legal status for illegal immigrants, it was described in the AP report as you got a “smattering of applause.” Do you think that right now in the country with all these people out of work and 45 million on food stamps that the American Republican voter is really desperate to hear candidates talk about how we need to help all these people who came into the country illegally? [4:30]

Kasich: Well, we’re certainly not going to ship them out of the country. What I’m saying is a lot of these folks who are here, they’re law abiding, they’re God-fearing, they’re family-oriented. And, what do you want to do with them?

Ingraham: That’s what Bush says though. Bush says the same thing. Continue reading this article

Vatican Catholics Tell Italians to Pipe Down about Illegal Alien Invasion

The current pope is a serious anti-borders type and recently called the rejection of migrants fleeing violence “an act of war” — which is an upside-down characterization when Europe is being invaded by many thousands who just want free stuff. Many of the illegal aliens flooding through Europe’s open borders pretend to be refugees, but are actually economic opportunists, encouraged by the fecklessness of the Eurocrats who refuse to defend their homeland.

Below, the pope visited the Italian island of Lampedusa in 2013 to “highlight the suffering of migrants.” The island has been overrun with African illegal aliens because of its proximity to Tunisia and Libya.

Other important cassocks chimed in behind the pope’s anti-nation-state theme, with Angelo Bagnasco, the head of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, denouncing “the indifference shown to the exodus of desperate people forced by poverty, war and persecution to take their chances elsewhere.”

It’s too bad Cardinal Giacomo Biffi is no longer around to speak sanity to power. He died on July 11 but is remembered as warning in a 2000 pastoral letter that the influx of Muslims was a danger to Italy’s Catholic identity and that Christian immigrants should be given preference. He also stated that Islamic notions of family and the status of women were incompatible with Italian culture and that Islamic fundamentalists posed a threat to Christian Europe.

The pope and his cronies are generous with the safety of Europe even though the invasion of historic Muslim enemies presents an existential threat to the continent, now and going forward. Today’s liberal generosity to thousands of moocher migrants will turn out badly as jobs disappear with increasing automation and the young Muslim men become disappointed and angry.

Below, African migrant men disembark from an Italian Navy rescue boat onto the island of Lampedusa in May.

At least the concerned citizens have their heads on straight and are standing up against the destructive catholic elites.

Church clashes with Italy’s right over migrants, The Local, August 11, 2015

High-ranking members of the Italian Church on Monday slammed politicians who peddle anti-immigrant ideas to win votes – sparking a heated row with Italy’s right wing.

“We here hear talk of the ‘unbearable’ number of asylum seekers, an attitude that is unfortunately fed by these salesmen” who are merely pandering to voters, Nunzio Galantino, secretary general of the Italian Bishops’ Conference (CEI), said in an interview on Vatican Radio.

The head of the anti-immigration Northern League party, Matteo Salvini, was quick to lash out at the Roman Catholic Church, saying “those who defend this illegal invasion, which is ruining Italy, either don’t understand or are making money” from the migrant arrivals.

Tempers have been fraying in recent weeks over the reception of migrants and would-be refugees in Italy, with Pope Francis intensifying his pleas for those fleeing war or persecution to be taken in – despite increasing anger over the numbers being rescued. Continue reading this article
