Illegal Aliens Are Not “Refugees”

Illegal Alien Criminals

The open borders elite have a new lie they are trying to foist on the American people and all too many in the media are helping them sell it.

And this new lie is to claim that the illegal aliens Obama has invited to flood our southern border are “refugees” and deserving of special treatment, including amnesty and ultimately citizenship.

Democratic Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was joined by Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Representatives Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) recently issued a statement calling on the Obama administration “to address the hemispheric refugee crisis on the Southern border.”

And they are using a UN report to back their claims that the illegal aliens flooding our southern border are refugees because “crime and violence have increased dramatically in Mexico and Central America in recent years…” 

But under US law a “refugee” must meet certain criteria, including:

Is located outside of the United States
Is of special humanitarian concern to the United States
Demonstrates that they were persecuted or fear persecution due to race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group
Is not firmly resettled in another country
Is admissible to the United States

If fleeing a dead job market and gang violence made one a legal refugee, then most of the American citizens living in Detroit, Springfield, MA, or any of the other hundreds of dying communities in the Rust Belt would appear to qualify as “refugees,” and you would think also gain the sympathy of Democrats, such as Menendez, Durbin, Hirono, Gutierrez and Roybal-Allard.

But they don’t qualify as refugees or for liberal sympathy because they are already in the country and firmly in the clutches of the Democrats’ dependency state. These working Americans who are virtual refugees in their own country are the real victims of Obama’s manufactured “refugee crisis” and what Senator Jeff Sessions so correctly called the “pro-amnesty elites who treat people as commodities.”

As Senator Sessions observed in a recent op-ed for Breitbart, “Perhaps no issue better illustrates the current divide between everyday citizens and our political and business elites than the issue of immigration. The latter group draws the financial gains from a generous labor supply without considering the perspective of those on the other side of the ledger: the working people who have to worry about being laid off and replaced with lower-wage workers, about the strain placed on their local hospitals and neighborhood resources, or about cartel violence spilling across the border into their own communities.”

While the open borders elites, such as Mark Zuckerberg, Rupert Murdock, Sheldon Adelson and the US Chamber of Commerce promote the idea that illegal immigrants take jobs Americans won’t do the reality is far different.

As we have observed on many occasions, and Senator Sessions reiterated in his op-ed, the US graduates approximately twice as many science, technology, engineering and math-trained students each year as there are so-called STEM jobs to fill. “There is a large surplus of unemployed Americans with STEM degrees and yet, per the Economic Policy Institute, ‘the annual inflow of guestworkers amount to one-third to one-half of all new IT jobs holders’.” As Rutgers Professor Hal Salzman poignantly asked, “Average wages in IT today are the same as they were when Bill Clinton was president well over a decade ago…if there is in fact a shortage, why doesn't that reflect in the market? Why don't wages go up?"

As Senator Sessions pointed out, “Each year, the US grants permanent legal admission to an additional 1 million immigrants who will be able to apply for citizenship, along with roughly 700,000 guest workers, 200,000 relatives of guest workers, and 500,000 students. These are overwhelmingly not farm workers as activists falsely suggest, but are instead workers brought in to fill jobs in every sector, occupation and industry throughout the US economy.”

It is time, as Senator Sessions said, for Republicans to consider immigration policy from the viewpoint of a middle-aged unemployed American who has to borrow gas money to drive to a job interview 100 miles away. Imagine how his or her life is affected when the company gives that open job to a temporary guest worker hired from 10,000 miles away. Imagine what any of the 58 million working-age Americans who don’t have jobs might have to say to the lawmakers and activists who claim there is a “labor shortage” or as we see it an illegal alien invasion being masked as a “refugee crisis.”

We need to rid Washington of the old school incumbents as Thad Cochran and Charles Rangel. We need new visionaries in Congress, who are not going to sell out or to bow down to Special Interests, to corporate cronies or the big trade unions, agriculture playing the same old continuous record of the Republican elite.

All you have to do is don’t vote Democrat; don’t vote Republican; when you go to the ballot box make your decision on who will balance the federal and state budgets, Remove the Affordable Care Act.

If you want change, then elect Candidates of the National Tea party: removal of illegal aliens; No Amnesty; No Pathway to Citizenship and no drivers licenses; Abolishment of the IRS; introduce a fair or consumption tax, reduction in government itself; Returning the Department of Education, Environmental Protection Agency to State control. Building the Keystone pipeline and making America self-sufficient in Energy and not dependent on foreign oil, gas. Reduce to a minimum of Regulations for growing businesses. Stop the incessant rules and regulation that Americans face every day, by agencies to collect more taxes; Make corporate welfare a thing of the past.
Use the Tea Party agenda of Ron Paul, The One Cent Solution is beautifully simple: If the government cuts one cent out of every dollar of its total spending (excluding interest payments) each year for five years, and then caps overall federal spending at 18 percent of national income from then on, we can: Reduce federal spending by $7.5 trillion over 10 years. Balance the budget by 2019.
I have just heard that House Democrats Introduced a Bill to Provide Taxpayer-Funded Lawyers to Illegal Alien Kids. It’s heartfelt that these kids turned up to be arrested, but we just cannot safe the world. The Southwest for instance there is a water shortage and a population is exploding, the highways are jammed, infrastructure is falling apart; we have an ailing electrical grid and we cannot feed our own people. Americans have a mission and that is to take down this President and his corrupt administration. If you're one of the hundreds of millions of Americans who see the evidence stacking up against Obama—the acts of treason, damn-near terrorist, tyranny and more. Obama has his sights set on destroying America. We have seen him trample the Constitution and blatantly ignore the law time and again. Now he is at it again with his push to grant amnesty to millions of illegal nationals. He already released more than 36,000 illegal aliens who committed on felonies, awaiting deportation. Everything is at stake here.

Have you had enough? Stop Big Brother and this Imperial President from controlling every aspect of our lives. No more spying, targeting conservatives, persecuting the innocent or rewarding those in the administration who commit criminal acts—like Lerner, Holder and Clinton. We can put an end to it once and for all. So join the Nation TEA PARTY in your neighborhood, your community, your town or city and reduce the power and influence of the Republican Establishment and the Democrats.

Our mission is to bring awareness to any issue which challenges the security, sovereignty or domestic tranquility of our beloved nation, The United States of America.

Stop this run away train

This administration is so out of control. It needs to be stopped in order to preserve our last bit of sovereignty.
Where is Congress? Why aren't they bringing Obama and his minions up on charges. There should be a bipartisan effort to stop this train wreck and restore the rule of law in this country.
This whole invasion is an orchestrated effort to overcome and destroy the United States and yet Congress sits there and does nothing.
