Emanuel Celler (D – Babel), per his atavistic, paternal nature, made a career of lying. Ted “Leave Her For Dead” Kennedy (D – Old No. 7) told some whoppers too. Like this one:
First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset … Contrary to the charges in some quarters, S.500 will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and economically deprived nations of Africa and Asia. In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think. Thirdly, the bill will not permit the entry of subversive persons, criminals, illiterates, or those with contagious disease or serious mental illness.
Yeah, so that was 1965. History, these past few decades, has kind of proven otherwise.
In America, today – this year, we can expect a million and a half ILLEGAL immigrants flooding into our cities. That’s in addition to the legal arrivals, more than a few from places overpopulated and/or economically deprived.
The United States is projected to add about 1.5 million illegal aliens to the American population by the end of the year, should current rates of Catch and Release, border crossings, and visa overstays pan out.
This year, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Catch and Release policy — whereby border crossers and illegal aliens are readily released from federal custody into the interior of the U.S. — is on track to release roughly 434,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the country by the end of the year. This projection is based on current estimates that more than 36,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have been released from DHS custody every month since the beginning of the year.
Subversive criminals? Got those. Actually, we have the crazies and especially the diseased too. Google “Los Angles” or “San Francisco” and “medieval disease.” See what comes up. But, as for the criminals:
Nearly every illegal immigrant family slated for deportation over the last six months has ignored those orders, according to the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
A staggering 92 percent of family members failed to appear at their deportation hearings in the months since September, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican.
He said he obtained those numbers from Ron Vitiello, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“The system is broken and overwhelmed,” Mr. Graham tweeted. “It is a national emergency!”
Yes. Yes, it is, Senator. 92% of illegals are willing to flout the very processes in place to deal with them. Subversive much? And, really, 100% are criminals. That’s why they’re classified as “illegal.”
The national emergency started 54 years ago. The time for emergency action was 34 years ago. We’re a little behind.
