Ever wonder why immigrants are so insistent on amnesty, even though the consequences couldn’t be any clearer?
Politics, of course. As you’d imagine, practically no illegal immigrants identify with the platform of the Republican Party. According to the Pew Research Center, only 4% of illegal aliens would vote Republican if they were able to vote legally, while 31% would vote Democrat. This gap would undoubtedly increase in the Left’s favor were illegals to be granted amnesty, and thus the ability to vote, as the Democrats would further pander to them. Roughly three quarters of illegals are Hispanic, and in the past presidential election, 71% of Hispanics voted Democrat, compared to 27% voting Republican – a 44 percentage point gap.
The evidence is clear: that the culture of the immigrants we bring in will eventually influence American culture, as they’ll become politically active. And when it comes to America taking in Syrian refugees, Donald Trump isn’t taking any chances.
Trump on Monday outlined a new immigration policy proposal under which the U.S. would stop issuing visas in any case where it cannot perform adequate screenings.
It will be the latest version of a policy that began with Trump’s unprecedented call to temporarily bar foreign Muslims from entering the country — a religious test that was criticized across party lines as un-American. Following a massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in June, Trump introduced a new standard.
“As he laid out in his Orlando remarks, Mr. Trump will describe the need to temporarily suspend visa issuances to geographic regions with a history of exporting terrorism and where adequate checks and background vetting cannot occur,” Miller said.
Trump is also expected to propose creating a new, ideological test for admission to the country that would assess a candidate’s stances on issues like religious freedom, gender equality and gay rights. Through questionnaires, searching social media, interviewing friends and family or other means, applicants would be vetted to see whether they support American values like tolerance and pluralism.
The candidate is also expected to call in the speech for declaring in explicit terms that, like during the Cold War, the nation is in an ideological conflict with radical Islam.
Do you agree? We certainly need to increase screening of refugees if we are going to take them in. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
