Immigration Reform Should Favor Tradition Over Transformation

Immigration Reform Should Favor Tradition Over Transformation

Former President Barack H. Obama bequeathed a divided nation to President Donald J. Trump. Obama’s executive orders and departmental rules and regulations were meant to bypass regular order — congressional legislation — like opening American borders to under-vetted or unvetted foreign nationals.

Immigration confusion and disorder were just one example of Obama’s legacy of governmental anarchy seeking social and political realignment.

President Lyndon B. Johnson and the Democrats sought to transform America by their 1964 civil rights and 1965 immigration legislation. Obama signed highly questionable executive orders and permitted promulgation of questionable rules, regulations, and policies, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order — to transform America.

Attacks by the mainstream media on President Trump and Republicans were non-stop and vicious even before the election. They continue in 2018. Whether late night talk shows, cable networks, or the print-media, the vitriolic hatred of President Trump spins forth without letting up.

The maneuvers of the Johnson, Clinton, and Obama administrations to authorize entitlement and immigration policies have divided the nation. They are part of a plan to transform America. So far, they've been successful.

The so-called "Dreamers," are in reality foreign nationals here illegally, unvetted, demanding all the benefits granted American citizens. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., created the "Dreamer" idea in 2001. He did so with his proposed "Development Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act" (Dream Act). For 17 years that Act has remained as a proposed — not enacted. As of Feb. 13, 2018, Sen. Durbin is still fabricating reasons for support of his Dream Act. 

Why? To ally with voters for the Democratic Party of the future.

Dreamers are not all academic scholars, full-time employees, nor members of the U.S. armed forces; extremely few are academic all-stars or military members.

Federal, state, and local law enforcement arrest blotters are daily chronicles of crimes committed by illegal immigrants and Dreamers. Here the news media remains appreciably absent.

One in five federal prison inmates is an illegal immigrant — such prisoners are not incarcerated for jay-walking or for traffic citations. It appears that about 13 percent of state prison populations are illegal immigrants. They make up less than 3 percent of the U.S. population.

A January 2018 Harvard-Harris poll reports that 81 percent of all voters support reducing legal immigration levels. Of those polled, 65 percent are for legalization of DACA recipients; but any legalization must include an end to chain migration (family unity), an end to Visa Diversity, and a wall on the southern border. Mr. Trump appears to have these Americans in mind with his purposed immigration legislation.

The Harvard-Harris survey included Hjspanics, African-Americans, Democrats, Independents, liberal voters, and persons voting for Hillary Clinton in 2016. This poll is a surprise to advocates and opponents of open borders.

A U.S. Census Bureau report showed that the California population as of July 2016 was 39, 250, 017, comprised of persons five years and older. Of this population group, 44.6 percent do not speak English at home. This means they do not speak any English.

Nationwide, 21.6 percent of the U.S. population speaks no English at home.

It's a requirement that person seeking citizenship be able to read, write, and understand English. During the Obama administraiton this requirement was ignored. Citizens ask, "How many illegal aliens are voting?"

Meanwhile, in federal and state courthouses and other government facilities foreign language-interpreters are required for official proceedings. In some locations as many as 30 to 40 different language translators are needed.

In school districts nationwide, foreign-speaking parents demand classes be taught in their native languages. Fairfax County, Virginia has been experiencing demands by foreign-speaking parents to have full-time teachers who speak the mother language for their child/children.

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI) prohibits discrimination by entities receiving federal money. Through the years of the Obama administration, Congress, the Department of Education (DOE), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) have expanded the scope and meaning of the Act.

Now school districts must provide for foreign-language speaking children — regardless of how obscure the language or dialect may be. Taxpayers pay for this cost.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) prohibits discrimination in employment practices. Like Title VI, it is wellspring of government regulations, executive orders, and court decisions costing the taxpayer money to transform America.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 are Democratic sponsored gushers of unbridled illegal immigrant entry, of new voters; also of fraud, waste, and abuse. These laws have transformed the demographics of the U.S. while dampening assimilation of legal and illegal immigrants, thus creating the Divided States of America.

These laws have outlived their usefulness and relevance. New immigration and civil rights legislation is needed to address 21st century concerns. Tradition not transformation.
