A refugee, as defined by Section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), is a person who is unable or unwilling to return to his or her home country because of a “well-founded fear of persecution” due to race, membership in a particular social group, political opinion, religion, or national origin.

The disgrace

The Government at all levels has failed by allowing a significant number of people to reside on US soil with an illegal residency status. The, by allowing them, often aiding them, to put down roots. Drivers licences, free K-12, employment, housing, and more.

Then, if an illegal alien happens to give birth while on US soil, the baby is granted, wait for it … citizenship!

“Pineda arrived in the U.S. illegally in 2006. Since then, she obtained a work visa, a driver’s license and a Social Security number. She wants better for her children. Stacey is 9, Sheyla is 11 and Sherly is 14. The two youngest girls were born here.”

Wait, wait, there’s more. At any time, the illegal alien could then be arrested by ICE and “ripped” from the citizen children. Who the hell thought of this system?

So let’s see, A DL, free K-12, work and housing since illegal to ask about citizenship, actual citizenship for any kids, AND arrest and removal at any time. And just for fun, a little DACA is thrown in too.

Punish Russia through oil prices?

In response to the social media related indictments against Russian citizens now on Russian soil, James Clapper today on CNN TV appeared to recommend the US depress oil prices to the $40 level or below.  The idea being that Russia as a country is heavily dependent on oil and gas sales and profits.

Last Friday’s indictment purports that Russian citizens used indentity theft/fraud to setup accounts on social media websites such as facebook that require the end-user provide some ID during the sign-up process. Once authenticated, the Russians then went on to make both pro and anti HRC, Stein, Bernie, Trump posts.  In addition, the indictment says one anti-Trump and one pro-Trump rally were organized for the same day.

Clapper did not say how the US should or could tank oil prices, artificially, or flood the market.  He also did not say what that might mean for US citizens, Russian citizens, and other countries around the world.  Or, if those other countries should be consulted first.

Russia is not the only country heavily dependent on oil and gas exports.  See Venezuela for example.

Everyone goes or everyone stays

The Democrats have plumbed a new low! If no person is illegal, then mean it, don’t just declare stuff.

It doesn’t matter if this arbitrary, token, political handful of DACA “kids” were dragged here in “chains”.  Having law breaking parents is not an excuse or an accomplishment.  I doesn’t matter if every kid is a Purple Heart brain surgeon or rocket scientist.

Why protect just these kids? What if a child arrived on Jan 1, 2007, kick ’em out?  C’mon man! Who the heck thinks of this stuff to begin with? Why stigmatize these kids as law breakers, line jumpers and free riders?

Everyone goes or EVERYONE stays.  If everyone stays, then anyone anywhere anytime must be allowed in, especially the people waiting LEGALLY.  Nothing else makes any rational, ethical, fair to all, sense. Is there such a thing as an illegal residency status or not?  This is not complicated.

Immigration targets

“If you happened to take a breather over the past few days you may have missed that Donald Trump told the DACA negotiators last Thursday that he didn’t like the compromise they’d come up with because he didn’t want any immigrants from “shithole countries” in Africa and wondered why we couldn’t just have immigration from places like Norway.” —

Is that what Trump said?  Are those his words?
