Posts Tagged ‘Joe Biden Immigration’

Migrants carry their belongings to a bus after being told to leave New York’s Watson Hotel in New York City.

There weren’t any huge immigration stories in the news last week, but there were several interesting smaller ones.  Let’s take a look at them.

The Land of Freebies…and Discontent

It’s the land of the freebies for NYC’s ‘entitled’ migrants” was the headline in the New York Post on Jan. 31st.  The essence of the story by Michael Goodwin was right in the first two paragraphs.

You can say this for the migrants demanding more free stuff from City Hall: They’re fast learners about the new American ethos of endless entitlement.

Schooled and led by far-left activists, they arrive here within days of illegally crossing the southern border and claiming asylum, then start agitating for better accommodations in pricey neighborhoods. 

The only thing I would add to Goodwin’s statement is that this is simply the umpty-umpth example of Roman Catholic immigration/economic/political theory in action.  Get ‘em in, keep ‘em in, put ‘em on the dole.  That’s Rome’s game plan for “Romanizing America through Illegal Immigration.”  

Note what Goodwin says about “demanding more free stuff from City Hall.”  Whenever Rome starts in with one of its sentimental sob stories about standing in solidarity with asylum seekers and migrants of one sort or another and talking about a nation’s “obligation to accommodate migrant flows,” what they mean is that you have an obligation to fork over your hard-earned money to support people who trash your city and protest they’re not getting enough free stuff from you. 

This in no way, shape, or form is Christian charity.  Christian charity is about giving one’s own goods.  Rome, on the other hand, traffics in stolen virtue.  The Pope, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, etc. all love to talk about humane they are while spending your money to support demanding people who have contempt both for you and your home country., people who are taught by these same bishops, cardinals, and popes that they are entitled to your goods.

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

  • Dr. Samuel D. Burchard, Presbyterian Minister and Union Civil War Veteran

For the first time in his nearly 2 years in office, Joe Biden will visit America’s southwestern border today to lie to the American people once again about what he and his Regime are doing to destroy the nation that he supposedly represents through the policy of mass, welfare migration. 

As America’s second Roman Catholic president, Joe Biden has wasted no time implementing the welfare immigration program of the Antichrist Roman Catholic Church-State, a program designed to weaken and subvert the United States and to strengthen the hand of the Vatican in the internal affairs of the nation.  The goal of this program is to render the United States ungovernable and fold it into a regional, and finally a world government with the Pope – the man who claims to be the father of kings, governor of the world, and vicar of Christ – as the head.

While the lying legacy media portray America’s border crisis as if it, like Melchizedek, were without father or mother or genealogy, the parentage of America’s illegal alien migration disaster is very clearly known.  It is a creation of the Democrats generally, of the Biden Regime more particularly, and of the Vatican ultimately.    

But while the Vatican origins of the current immigration crisis are not hard to see, most Americans, even Reformed Christians who of all people should have the discernment to see the scam for what it is, fail to grasp what is being done to them and by whom it is being done.

The Antichrist Roman Church-State has been active on our southern border for years, decades really, promoting the destruction of America through mass Roman Catholic, welfare migration.  But in the past few years, Rome has stepped up its game.  Jesuit Pope Francis paid a visit to Juarez in January 2016, celebrating a mass that was simulcast in the Sun Bowl in El Paso.  Unsurprisingly, Francis used this occasion to promote his favorite nation-breaking ploy, mass welfare migration. 

The Wall Street Journal reporting on the Pope’s visit to Juarez noted, “While many are expected to cross the border to see the papal Mass at the nearby Juárez fairgrounds, some 600 ‘VIPs’ invited by the Roman Catholic Diocese of El Paso – migrants, labor advocates, nuns and immigration activists – will gather to watch the pope from a levee on the U.S. side.”

In another article on the same subject from February 9, 2016, The Wall Street Journal reported, “Pope Francis arrives in Mexico on Friday for a six-day visit that will end with a highly symbolic and potentially controversial act: the pontiff taking a stand on the fortified U.S. border to show solidarity with the migrants trying to cross it.”  The Journal even went so far as to refer to migration as, “the expected theme of the pope’s Juárez visit.”

With this in mind, is it any big surprise that seven years later El Paso is the epicenter of Antichrist’s illegal alien assault on America?

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

Because there are more important things going on.”  That was Joe Biden’s answer to a reporter who asked him why he wasn’t going to visit the border while he was in Arizona. 

It would be hard to find a single statement from this evil man that would better summarize his entire administration than this.  You may even say it’s his Marie Antoinette moment, the queen of France who is said to have responded “let them eat cake” when told the peasants had no bread.

As her statement was a callous dismissal of the suffering of the poor people of France, the very people for whom she had a responsibility as a member of France’s royal family, so too does Biden’s brusque comment to the reporter show his callous disregard for the suffering his irresponsible immigration policies have caused the American people and will cause them in the future.

Not a few times has this author heard Biden’s policies described as “a failure” by various media pundits.  For example, CNN ran a headline in October that reads “’Hail Mary after Hail Mary’: Biden administration struggles with border policy, fueling frustration.”  Center for Immigration Studies, a group that opposes the sort of mass immivasion that’s taking place on our southern border wrote a piece titled “Biden’s border policy may be 2021’s biggest failure.” Or take this article from the Washington Post, “’No end in sight” Inside the Biden administration’s failure to contain the border surge.” Many other such references can be found in the media, both from liberal as well as conservative sources.

But what if Biden’s border disaster is not a failure at all, but rather a roaring success?  Even before he took office, Biden and the Democrats generally signaled their intention to reverse the Trump administration’s border enforcement policies that had done a great deal to cut down on illegal immigration.  According to this article, on day one of his administration Biden signed seven, seven!, executive orders essentially gutting all the progress Trump had made on immigration during his four years in office.  Did Biden not know what he was doing?  Some people think he’s so senile that he was clueless.  I’m not so sure.  But whether it was Biden himself doing this or whether he was just carrying out the order of his handlers, whoever was responsible for these executive orders had to know full well that they would create chaos at our southern border and were willing to accept that chaos as the price of doing business.  Put differently, these policy changes, and the resulting massive influx of illegal aliens, were not bumbling mistakes on the part of the Biden regime, but the clear intention of the policymakers who drafted these executive orders and, in my opinion, of the president himself.

Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things?

  • Matthew 20:15

A few weeks back, I received a text message from Tim Shaughnessy, a friend and Reformed brother who lives in El Paso Texas, about an emergency with a church he pastors.  El Paso sits in the far west of Texas, right across the US-Mexico border from the large Mexican city of Juarez.  The Rio Grande forms the border between both cities and both countries.  Knowing El Paso’s location, and if you follow the news at all, you won’t be surprised when you hear what the emergency was. 

Tim’s church had been meeting at the Rescue Mission of El Paso, and the chaplain of the mission called up Tim on a Saturday and told him that his church would not be able to use the mission’s building for services on Sunday.  The city had been dropping off migrants at the mission and the entire facility was packed with people and full of cots.  Given the vast scale of the current flood of illegal aliens pouring across America’s southern border, doubtless the loss suffered by Tim’s church could be multiplied many times over.   

The current immigration disaster started with the inauguration of America’s second Roman Catholic president, Joe Biden, in January 2021 and shows no signs of letting up.  Indeed, by some reports, the flood of illegal aliens, far from subsiding, is getting worse.

Since I mentioned El Paso earlier, let’s look at a few immigration-related headlines from just this one Texas city.

These stories all paint a picture of one American city being overwhelmed by illegal aliens with little hope of relief. Indeed, migrant numbers historically are higher as we move into fall and cooler weather comes to the region making passage safer for those seeking to enter the United States illegally.  As Tim said in his message to me, “Our city is overwhelmed right now.” 

That, one could say, is an understatement.

But while America is being overwhelmed with a flood of illegal aliens, it’s important to keep in mind that this flood is not some force of nature, but the result of deliberate policies put in place by the current president and his government.  On his first day in office, Joe Biden signed an executive order pausing the construction of the border wall.  And this was not the only action taken by the president and by other Democratic government officials across the nation to make it easier for migrants illegally to cross America’s southern border, to make it harder to deport them, and indeed, even to reward them once in the United States. 

To give you some idea of how Biden has encouraged illegal immigration to America, a quote from the article “The Border Crisis Comes to a Once-Quite part of West Texas” will suffice.  In this piece, journalist Todd Bensman interviewed a “human smuggling guide” whose name was given as Jose Antonio.  Antonio referred to Biden’s immigration policies as la invitación, the invitation. 

Indeed, one would have a hard time coming up with a better name than la invitación to describe the immigration policies of Joe Biden in particular and the Democrats in general.  To show just how committed the Democrats are as a party to forcing American taxpayers to support illegal aliens, consider the response of the field of democratic presidential candidates in 2019 to a show of hands question about whether their health plan would cover “undocumented immigrants” – the proper term for “undocumented immigrants” is “illegal aliens.”  The response of all ten of the Democrats present was to raise their hands “yes.”  You can see the video here.

There is no provision in the Constitution, the Supreme Court’s ruling notwithstanding, for the federal government to fund anyone’s “health plan,” not even health plans for the American people.  And if it is unconstitutional, and more to the point, immoral for the federal government to use tax dollars to pay Americans’ doctor bills, how much more is it unconstitutional and immoral for the federal government to use tax dollars taken from the American people to pay medical bills for foreigners who have violated America’s immigration laws?

So, ask yourself this question:  If you tell people to go ahead and break America’s immigration laws and we’ll reward you with fabulous cash and prizes, do you think you will get more immigration law-breaking or less immigration law-breaking? If you said, “more immigration law-breaking,” go to the head of the class.

Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

  • Genesis 9:6

No sooner had the terrible news of yesterday’s mass shooting in Buffalo, NY broken than the usual crowd was out on social and legacy media pushing the usual illogical arguments. 

 When I say illogical argument, allow me to provide a few examples.

First up on our list is the tweet from noted Jesuit James Martin (you know he’s a Jesuit by the “SJ” listed after his name, SJ standing for “Society of Jesus). Martin calls for prayers, “for the 10 victims of the racist, white nationalist, terrorist shootings.”  Christians, of course, are not called to pray for the dead.  But this is a teaching of the Roman Church-State. 

Martin then goes on to call, “for an end of gun violence, through stricter gun control laws.”  This an example of the erroneous approach to criminal justice known as “crime prevention.”  The idea is that you regulate – that is, you punish – everyone in advance in hopes of preventing some future criminal action.  An extreme form of this unbiblical approach to criminal justice was depicted in the dystopian science fiction movie Minority Report based on a short story by Philip K. Dick.  In that movie, a Department of PreCrime would arrest people for crimes that they supposedly were going to commit based upon visions of the future by individuals known as pre-cogs.

But Scripture does not countenance crime prevention.  The Scriptural approach to criminal justice is crime punishment, and idea which Martin, at least in part, rejects.  In a 2020 article in America Magazine (America is a publication of the Jesuits), Martin approvingly wrote of Pope Francis decision to change the Church’s teaching on capital punishment.  According to Martin, in his encyclical “Fratelli Tutti,” Jesuit Pope Francis “placed the full weight of his teaching authority behind this statement: The death penalty is inadmissible, and Catholics should work for its abolition.”  Put differently, Pope Francis, James Martin, and the Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) generally have committed themselves to subverting justice in all the nations of the world. 

Perhaps one motive for the Catholic Church’s desire to subvert criminal justice is the horrifying numbers of murders that historians have laid at the feet of Rome.  Scholars have attributed differing numbers of murders to Rome.  One of the more conservative figures this author has seen is found in John Dowling’s book The History of Romanism.  Writes Dowling, “From the birth of Popery in 606, to the present time, it is estimated by careful and credible historians, that more than Fifty Millions of the human family, have been slaughtered for the crime of heresy by popish persecutors, and average of more than forth thousand religious murders for every year of the existence of Popery” (541-42).

So while on one hand Martin attempts to short-circuit Biblical justice that calls for executing murders, on the other hand, he seeks to punish all Americans by taking away their God-given, Second Amendment guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.  That’s very Jesuitical of him indeed.  And Marin is hardly the only Jesuit of this opinion.  Podcaster Christopher Pinot has discussed on his podcast how the Jesuits have advocated banning even handguns such as 9mm pistols.  It seems that their goal is to strip Americans of all their firearms.  Now why would they want to do that. 

Martin denounces “the evils of white nationalism, white supremacy, and the sin of racism,” but does not tell us what he means by these terms.  Perhaps he defines them elsewhere.  I don’t know.  But given the sloppy way such terms as “white nationalism,” “white supremacy” and “racism” used, given the social justice bent of Martin’s tweet and of the Jesuits generally, and given the Jesuit practice of mental reservation, he may mean something very different by these terms than do his readers.

ICE agents forced to coordinate travel for illegal immigrants, some with criminal records: source

The illegitimate Biden Regime continues its all-out effort to put Americans last. 

If you have any doubts about this, the reports from Bill Melugin of Fox News about the illegal alien travel service the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is running should help clear them up. 

Take the following tweet as an example:

Illegal aliens continue to flood our southern border due to encouragement from the Biden Regime.  And once they’re in the country, instead of being deported by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as they should be, they’re being bussed – at taxpayer expense! – to destinations in the nation’s interior. 

According to one ICE agent, “The Biden Administration has turned ICE ERO [Enforcement and Removal Operations] into an unofficial travel coordination agency.”   

American citizenship, a jewel prized throughout the world, continues to be treated like so much garbage by the federal government as it steadfastly refuses to do anything to close the absurd birthright citizenship loophole.  Allan Wall reports that Marina del Pilar Avila Olmeda, governor of the Mexican state of Baja California, deliberately left Mexico to give birth in Brawley, California, 34 miles from the state capital.  Simply by being born on US soil, her son was automatically granted American citizenship to go along with his Mexican citizenship.  That’s what birthright citizenship is.
