Anti-American Rallies Disguised as Anti-Trump Rallies
Donald Trump, the Republican Party nominee for the Presidency in the upcoming election, is being met with huge protests on the campaign trail. His messages of populism, definitively closing the southern border, and putting America First, resonate with a large percentage of citizens. Some of these protests originate from student groups and members of the opposition party, who protest against him due to his political ideology, which is to be expected. Democrats and Republicans will always battle one another and are polarized on issues such as birth control/fetal murder, crime and punishment, race relations, taxes and spending, and immigration, both legal and illegal. What's surprising is that for the first time in our history and on such a large scale, illegal immigrants - people who have broken our laws and are in this nation illegally - are standing up and demanding rights and have a high degree of expectation that their voice somehow matters in American politics.
Free From the Shadows
Natural born American citizens are mostly appalled by this notion. No one other than an American citizens should have a voice in American politics. Anyone here illegally should be arrested and deported under U.S. Law. President Obama often talks about illegal aliens or undocumented workers as he likes to call them, living in the shadows. Their actions demonstrate that they are no concerned with being deported and it could be deduced that they fully expect to receive amnesty at some future date. Our Federal Government is neglecting their duties by allowing this to continue and by that neglect actually encourages similar actions.
Mexican Flags at Trump Rally
This is NOT Mexico
Mostly in the Southwest, angry Hispanics, some legal, some illegal, have fixated on Mr. Trump's hardline stance on immigration and have taken their battle to the streets. They "proudly" wave Mexican flags as part of their message and it's drawn the ire of countless actual citizens who express an opposing sentiment. In the United States of America we are united under a single banner, which is the American flag. Anyone flying a Mexican flag obviously is demonstrating loyalty to Mexico, not America. These illegal aliens are nothing more than terrorists - people who incite violence, destroy property, and attack American citizens should be dealt with severely under the law. Yet, the Marxist-leaning mainstream media has taken these protests and repackaged them as anti-Trump instead of anti-American. Hispanics demanding equal rights in a nation which they are not citizens of is totally meaningless and should be treated much differently than how it is being handled. Non-citizens are not entitled to any of the rights citizens have, nor do they have a voice in attempting to change our laws on immigration, border security, or deportations.
Support for the Protesters
American citizens are left to wonder why our media is supporting the protesters so strongly. Donald Trump has made it no secret that he intends to strengthen the southern border by building a wall and expelling all illegal immigrants. Mr. Trump has also expressed that immigration laws will be followed as they are written. Yet, because of this the media and the Democrats are calling him a racist. Protesters that are flying the flag of another nation inside America are calling Trump racist. People who are participating in violence against the United States are calling him racist. Latino's burning the American flag in America are calling him racist. What statements Mr. Trump made were not made based on race, but on facts, and since the left has no way to fight facts, they've employed armies of young people to champion playing the race card.
Trump versus the World
The pressure to see Mr. Trump fail in his bid for the Presidency comes from many groups, but primarily from those who have illegal alien family members present in the United States. With President Obama being overtly welcoming to kids of illegals with the DREAM Act and other programs designed to help them succeed, many of these mixed families were totally relaxed and probably expected to gain amnesty. Obama basically has ignored immigration enforcement and had all of his administration working overtime to downplay all of the criminal acts committed by illegal aliens, most often at the expense of actual citizens. The media, in their support of the open-border policies of the Democrats have attempted to play the emotional card to its fullest. They cite example after example of how families will be broken up, how dreams will be shattered, and how American will somehow lose something valuable if Trump is allowed to execute his deportation plan. Deep-pocketed supporters of cheap labor, Mexican Cartels, and even Mexican politicians are supporting the anti-Trump rhetoric which adds further fuel to the fire.
Why Do Illegals Come
One of the looming questions asked is simply why do people come here illegally when America has a fairly open immigration system? Well, the truth might be painful for some people to hear, but it needs to be said. America welcomes legal immigrants, but only those who are valuable to America. There is NO waiting line for people with low education or few skills to stand in and gain permanent U.S. residency. This may sound harsh, but it's necessary - thus the reason why many choose to break our laws and come here illegally - we wouldn't accept them as immigrants. Truth is, we don't want anyone to come here as a negative contributor to the economy. Generally, gaining permission to live and work in the United States is limited to people who are (1) highly trained in a skill that is in short supply here and offered a job by a U.S. employer, (2) escaping political persecution, (3) joining close family already here, or (4) winners of the green-card lottery. When Mr. Trump says Mexico is sending their worst to cross our borders illegally, he is referring to those who just do not qualify to become citizens.
Donald Trump's enforcement plan is simple, it creates jobs we need, and gives American citizens the confidence that our government is not only creating laws that keep us safe, but also following them as written. Mr. Trump has said he will build a fence, deploy 25,000 additional border agents, utilize Predator drones, and any other means necessary to enforce the southern border. He also pledged to enforce immigration laws - laws that are already in place. He does not believe in using the safety of our citizens as a political tool in pandering for votes in the Hispanic community. He will eliminate detention centers and deport illegal aliens immediately - no hearings, no court appointed lawyers, no access to our judicial system.
Backfire - Perhaps
There are many moving parts to this scenario, with some easier to spot over others. The fact that a Presidential candidate, regardless of party affiliation, is attempting to enforce existing laws and being met with such a high level of backlash demonstrates how flawed our system has become. We are a nation of laws and those laws need to be enforced or changed, not simply ignored for the benefit of special interest groups. This is the United States of America and not the world's hotel. If you break our laws, you deserve to be punished. Let's start calling these protests what they really are - anti-American - and proceed with the deportations sooner rather than later.
