Anti-Immigrant Right Reacts To Trump's 'Softening' With Anger & Denial

Donald Trump confused his supporters and detractors alike this week when, after months of promising to build a “deportation force” to go after every undocumented immigrant in the country, his new campaign manager said that Trump’s stance on mass deportations is “to be determined” and the candidate himself said “there certainly could be a softening” of his immigration position. (Trump, however, continued to insist that he is “not flip-flopping” on the issue.)

This left Trump’s supporters in the anti-immigrant movement, many who have hailed his candidacy as something just short of the Second Coming, confused about how to respond. The reactions have ranged from denial that Trump will actually change his position—a fair assumption given Trump’s track record of saying whatever he thinks his current audience wants to hear—to dire warnings that he got behind “amnesty” to resigned acceptance that whatever Trump does, at least he’ll take a harder line on immigration than Hillary Clinton.

Some activists, like Trump himself, are claiming that he has not changed his position at all. Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson made this argument on CNN today, explaining that the candidate “hasn’t changed his position. He has changed the words he is saying.”

Dan Stein, the head of the anti-immigrant Federation for American Immigration Reform, took a similar tack, telling Newsmax that while Trump probably wouldn’t lose much support from his base if he weakened his hardline immigration stance, given the alternative candidates, he was “very confidant that [Trump’s] positions, in the end, are going to remain substantially intact.”

The Center for Immigration Studies’ Mark Krikorian, meanwhile, claimed that Trump never actually meant what he originally said about creating a deportation force, claiming that the “deportation force” he promised was just “symbolic talk” for stricter immigration enforcement.

"The idea we were ever going to deport all 12 million in two years with deportation squads—or whatever [Trump] popped off about—was never a policy,” Krikorian told The Washington Times. “It was an Uncle George spouting off about the latest thing. I think a lot of people took that as symbolic talk, a way of showing he's serious on immigration and, ‘I'm not Jeb Bush.’’

Anti-immigrant flamethrower Ann Coulter similarly tried to downplay Trump’s attempted repositioning on the issue, telling the Washington Examiner in an interview that took place after Trump’s campaign manager’s comments but before the candidate’s own, that the campaign’s change in rhetoric isn’t “a change in policy.” But she also, stunningly, conceded that it may be “in our interest to let some [undocumented immigrants] stay.”

"It mostly worries me rhetorically ... I mean, what to do with the illegals already here was never really a big part of it," she said. "We're getting a wall. We're definitely getting a wall. That's the one thing we know about a Trump presidency."

She said Trump still offers more than any of the other Republicans had.

"I don't think it is a change in policy," she said of Trump. "The policy is anyone who's here illegally is here illegally, does not have the right to be here. We'll decide whether it's in our interest to let them stay or not. Perhaps it is in our interest to let some of them stay."

Coulter hit a similar note in an interview with The Hill after Trump made his “softening” comment and vaguely outlined a policy in which some undocumented immigrants would have a way forward to legal status. “It's just rhetoric but it's still annoying,” she said. "I think he panicked and he had to say [it] ... I don't think he is softening. I mean the big thing is the wall.”

Coulter, however, who just happened to be launching her new book “In Trump We Trust” last night with a party hosted by Breitbart News, quickly changed her tune, taking to Twitter to accuse Trump of promoting “amnesty”:

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC similarly cautioned Trump against supporting “amnesty,” saying, “If Donald Trump significantly diverges from his promise to deport all illegals, he will end his own campaign or his own presidency. His campaign or his presidency will be wounded to the point of self-destruction.”

Krikorian had a similar warning in The National Review today, saying that if Trump loses to Hillary Clinton now, it will be because of his “softening” immigration views.

Krikorian, however, told The Washington Times yesterday that he trusted Trump’s advisers (who include Krikorian) to steer the candidate back to a hardline position. “I don’t trust Trump, but I trust the people working for him. And I trust Hillary to do the wrong thing without exception,” he said. “He could sell us out on everything and he’d still be better than Hillary.”

William Gheen: Obama Administration-Backed Socialists Will Rig The Election

On conservative radio host Rocky D’s show yesterday, William Gheen of the anti-immigrant Americans for Legal Immigration PAC claimed that polls, the media and the 2016 election are rigged by Democrats and warned listeners that the Black Panthers and “leftist socialists backed by the Obama administration” will soon commit “civil rights abuses” against “older conservative America” to influence the election.

Gheen claimed that Donald Trump is currently leading despite “bogus polls coming from CNN and AOL and all these leftist groups that want everyone to believe that Hillary is being competitive; she’s not.”

“They’re going to try to psych people out with a bunch of disinformation to manufacture consent, as Chomsky would call it, against Trump,” Gheen said.

Gheen claimed that “the polls are rigged, CNN is rigged, Fox News is rigged. You’re only getting bits of the truth through talk radio and the internet, but beyond that, there’s a bigger rigging that we’re going to start broadcasting. Right now, we’re focused on [defeating] Paul Ryan and John McCain, but right after that, we need to start warning everybody the truth of the matter is the heavily criminal Democratic precincts, okay, if you look at crime rates anywhere in the country and you focus in on high crime areas, you’re looking at a Democrat stronghold, okay. You wanna go grab the police reports of who got arrested last night, compare them against the voter files, you’re going to look at a vast majority of Democrats.”

Gheen said that “a lot of criminality and voter fraud” occur in these Democratic “criminal precincts” where undocumented immigrants also reside and vote “in large numbers.”

“Even if by election day, Trump is up 65, 70 percent over Hillary’s 30-something, he could still lose because they’re going to vote the graveyards and the illegal aliens and the nursing homes, and this is gonna be the biggest, dirtiest Chicago-style Democratic robbery election that America has ever seen,” Gheen said.

Gheen continued to blame liberals for Republicans’ election losses.

“What you’re seeing right now with the Black Lives Matter movement and the illegal immigrants getting all stirred up and, you know, all the social — it’s not just protest anymore,” Gheen said. “This is a socialist uprising that is being fomented as we head towards Election Day, and mark my words, before and by the time we get to Election Day, you’re going to see full-fledged violent intimidation and civil rights abuses by these leftist socialists backed by the Obama administration against a mostly older conservative America that’s coming out to vote.”

Gheen continued, “You’re going to see, remember the Black Panthers trying to intimidate people with nightsticks outside the precinct in Philadelphia? You’re gonna see that times two hundred in thousands of locations across the country. They’re going to deploy the Black Panthers and the illegal aliens and all these people to get in people’s faces outside of polls, and it’s probably gonna lead to violence, violence initiated by the socialist rabble-rousers on CNN, including Don Lemon and everybody else who’s been on there pumping out lies for the last several years.”

William Gheen: 'There's A Direct 1:1 Relationship Between Criminal Activity And Being A Democrat'

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC joined Idaho radio host Kevin Miller on his show last Wednesday to discuss the recent sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl in Twin Falls, which some conservative media have blamed on Syrian refugees despite the fact that it was allegedly committed by two boys who are not from Syria, and eventually ended up on a tangent about how Democrats are prone to crime.

“This is what happens all over Europe,” Gheen said, comparing “the socialists” who he said are suppressing reports of crimes committed by refugees in Europe to Democrats in the U.S. He said Democratic precincts are “packed full of minorities, which have been bolstered by more minorities brought in as illegal aliens” by Democrats who want “to make sure that no one who is a conservative or anything like the Americans that have governed the country for 200 years can control things anymore.”

“Have you ever noticed, Kevin, that your highest-crime precincts around the country are your Democratic precincts?” Gheen asked. “It’s not just because people are white, black, Asian, or whatever. It’s because there’s a direct statistical association between Democrat precincts and your likelihood of being a victim of crime. And if you go down to the local police house and you check the registration of the people who are being brought in for crimes or charged every morning, you’re gonna look at a huge percentage of them being Democrats, because there’s a direct 1:1 relationship between criminal activity and being a Democrat or being in a Democratic precinct.”

William Gheen: 'Roots' Remake Part Of Globalist Plot to Spark Anti-White Violence

William Gheen, the head of the fringe anti-immigrant group Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC), told WorldNetDaily yesterday that the remake of the famous 1977 miniseries “Roots” that aired over Memorial Day weekend is part of a globalist plot to “agitate black voters into voting for Democrats” and spark anti-white violence.

“We are under attack,” he said. “The enemy is here. And they are springing a trap from within.”

Gheen said it’s also “no coincidence” that the remake of the 1970s movie “Roots” was released Memorial Day weekend for summer showing.

“In the new interpretation of the novel they removed any remaining positive roles by white Americans and released it on Memorial Day in the run up to the election to agitate black voters into voting for Democrats and/or for violence if needed,” he said.

..

Gheen says it’s the same global factions who were behind the creation of the European Union that are now pushing for violent uprisings in the U.S. and to push the nation over the edge into chaos and, they hope, a new social order.

“They hate the United States and its Judeo-Christian heritage, our Constitution, our gun rights, this is all considered remnants of a white male-dominated, colonial civilization that they want destroyed irrevocably,” Gheen said. “It’s a demographic form of genocide which they believe will have no resurgence in history.”

“And this is going to be the summer of blood. I believe the now-documented spike in violent crime rates in our major cities, and the fact our FBI director ties it to Ferguson, and the unprecedented wave of illegal immigration, and rising death rates for middle-aged whites, all point, these are not random coincidences, all the arrows point in the same direction and all the trails lead back to all the usual suspects. We are under attack. The enemy is here. And they are springing a trap from within.

“Complete civil disorder is now a good probability in the hot summer of 2016,” he added. “We are in a type of national survival twilight zone and anything could happen and a lot of the potential outcomes involve a lot of people being hurt. We want to stand on the side of those who promote American civil liberties and against those who are promoting this coordinated attack, that is going hot, from a sneaky cold-war kind of thing to a hot kind of thing, and we definitely want to pray for the safety and well-being of all Americans out there of every race and walk of life that are loyal to the Constitution.”


 

Even Trump Not Enough Of An Anti-Immigrant Extremist For Numbers USA

Donald Trump, who shot to the top of Republican presidential polls after calling immigrants from Mexico drug dealers and rapists, will have to move even further to the right if he wants to please the prominent anti-immigrant lobbying group Numbers USA.

The group’s leader, Roy Beck, wrote in a blog post that although he appreciated Trump’s “tenacious” comments about immigrants, the candidate “stumbled” when he offered a muddled plan for what Trump called a “merit system” to “work something out” for the undocumented immigrants who aren’t the “bad ones.”

As a result, Beck docked his candidate scorecard for Trump and repeated his praise for Scott Walker and Rick Santorum (the sole recipient of an “A” grade from the organization), who have been consistently extreme on immigration, even without Trump’s attention-getting bombast.

Trump on national TV and on the Arizona border stumbled and let himself get boxed into saying he would offer amnesty to the illegal aliens who aren't the "bad ones." He seemed to be defensive and trying to prove that he isn't hostile to immigrants by also indicating he would like to see legal immigration increased.

But Walker -- ambushed by an illegal-alien family brought to Iowa to confront him in front of the national press corps -- refused to be intimidated, stood strong and unapologetic about the importance of the rule of law, and declined to concede an amnesty..

Rick Santorum in a long interview on PBS also resisted being trapped into talking about immigration issues in the paradigm the mainstream media prefers. Instead, he deftly turned the high-profile TV appearance into an appeal to set immigration policy to benefit workers and poor people.

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC also added Trump to his “blacklist” of “amnesty supporting” politicians in wake of the billionaire’s latest remarks. Gheen explained his decision to WorldNetDaily:

“After coming out strong for a secure border and bringing attention to illegal immigrant crimes against Americans, Donald Trump is now promoting his plan to change America’s existing immigration laws to create a merit system by which illegals currently in America can stay and eventually gain voting rights where they are expected to help Democrats dominate U.S. elections forevermore,” Gheen said.


"Most Americans want to hear that America's laws will be enforced, not make new laws or change the laws to accommodate the law-breakers," he added.  "Americans like us want a constitutional government, not a Republican dictator to take over for the Democratic dictator we have in power now. "
 

William Gheen: Obama Will Give Immigrants 'Badges And Guns' To Go After 'Christian, Heterosexual Male' Population

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) visited VCY America’s “Crosstalk” yesterday to discuss some of his expansive conspiracy theories about immigrants in the United States.

Gheen told host Vic Eliason that when President Obama’s executive actions on immigration take effect, it will be the “death of the United States” because “five, 10, 15 million illegals will then begin to dominate over conservatives in U.S. elections” and “vote for the people that are going to tax and debt American citizens to pay for their cell phones, to pay for their health care, to pay for their education, to pay for the entire socialist state of America that are wrapped around these people.”

“They walked out of Third World poverty jungle conditions in Peru and Honduras and are now living high off the American taxpayer, just like Obama’s aunt Zeutuni Onyango was doing, and they’re going to vote Democrat,” he said.

He added that even liberals will soon “be dismayed to see the things that they cared about denigrated and destroyed by these waves of illegal immigration, but at that point there will be no conservatives to empower anything that will help them get out of the mess. So basically this is the death of the United States, this is the end of the republic to which most of us have sworn allegiance to.”

He told Eliason that the only solution was for anti-immigrant activists like himself to “follow in the tradition of Martin Luther King and Gandhi” and engage in civil disobedience.

Later in the interview, Gheen expanded on this conspiracy theory, telling Eliason that the federal government will start employing undocumented immigrants “as prison guards, social service agents, federal and state employees."

“The Democratic socialists, when they take over, turn the whole country blue with this new army, they’re going to give the illegal immigrants badges, they’re going to give them guns, and they’re going to put them in positions of authority over Americans in every way imaginable. So when you step out your door and there’s a knock at the door, you’re going to be looking at the new face of the state, which is the prior illegal immigrants that now have a badge and a gun and dominion over you,” he said.

When Eliason cautioned him that “some are saying you’re taking this too far,” Gheen responded that that’s just because “they don’t like people like me because I’m a center-right, Christian, heterosexual male, and I am enemy number one in every commercial and movie that you see right now. They don’t like the way the United States has been, they don’t like the constitution, they don’t like the courts, they prefer the social justice movement over the rule of law in this country.”

“And they see that the way to take over the United States is to bring these people in here, legalize them, and once they’re legalized they’re going to start hiring them and putting them in positions of power over you in the federal government with badges and guns and then they’re going to make new laws which you’re not going to like, but it’s not going to matter,” he said.

“And when you go out and you find yourself pulled over on the side of the road, a prior illegal immigrant’s going to be walking up to your car with a badge and a gun.”

Gheen and Eliason also discussed the GOP’s potential plan to shut down the Department of Homeland Security in protest of the immigration actions, which Gheen speculated Obama would use as a cover for “allowing terrorists to walk right in here and attack us to show us how much we need the protection of the crime bosses, the shakedown racket that the people in Chicago, the Chicago mob are fully familiar with.”

He explained that he “wouldn’t put anything past” the administration because “the people who are supporting the organized and well-funded illegal alien invasion of our homeland have the blood of many thousands of Americans on their hands that have been killed, injured raped and robbed by illegal immigrants.”

Anti-Immigrant Groups Demand 'Post Haste' Removal Of Obama, Biden, McConnell And Boehner

Last week, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen unveiled his plan to get Louie Gohmert or Steve King installed as president by removing President Obama and Vice President Biden from office and then getting Gohmert or King named speaker of the House.

Now Gheen is trying to get his fellow anti-immigrant activists on board his plan, spearheading an open letter “to warn as many Americans as possible” that the GOP leaders are “clandestinely working with Obama to perpetrate an unlawful and unconstitutional amnesty plot” and calling for their removal from office “post haste!”

Joining Gheen in signing the letter are anti-immigrant and Tea Party activists including Gheen’s frequent collaborator James Neighbors of Overpasses for America, Maria Espinoza of the Remembrance Project, Belinda Bee of 2 Million Bikers to DC, Darla Dawald of One Nation Rising.

We, the undersigned leaders, hereby agree to warn as many Americans as possible that GOP leaders in Congress such as John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are clandestinely working with Obama to perpetrate an unlawful and unconstitutional amnesty plot despite their misleading public statements to the contrary.

Furthermore, we call on every GOP lawmaker to actively and aggressively seek the removal of Barack Obama, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner from their leadership positions as soon as humanly possible because their deceptions on the issue of amnesty for illegal immigrants equate to the overthrow and nullification of our elections, laws, Congress, Republic, and our Constitution, which each of these corrupt politicians swore an oath to uphold!

We also call on all American lawmakers in Washington and our states, party officials, members of the media, voters, and activists to immediately seek the removal of Obama and his Vice President as well their GOP facilitators and co-conspirators John Boehner and Mitch McConnell from their leadership positions - immediately!

As Americans, it is our duty to take any and all steps necessary to protect the well being of our citizens, laws, and Constitution, which are under threat and duress by the Obama-McConnell-Boehner Amnesty Plot and the millions of illegal aliens they are supporting at the behest of the US Chamber of Commerce, Council on Foreign Relations, big banks, and mega wealth billionaires.

In honor of the thousands of Americans losing their lives each year to this politician supported illegal immigrant invasion of our American homeland, and the millions of unemployed and underemployed Americans struggling to make ends meet, we stand in unity against all of those in power who are betraying Americans by conspiring to deprive American voters of any true voice, choice, or representation on these matters of national and individual survival.

We call on other leaders to join in the signing of this open letter to lawmakers, and all Americans to join our efforts to depose Obama, McConnell, and Boehner from power in the unifying and paramount interest of returning Constitutional governance to America post haste!

William Gheen: Only President Louie Gohmert Can Save Christmas From The Immigrants

Anti-immigrant activist William Gheen, the head of Americans for Legal Immigration, stopped by VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program yesterday to discuss how a coalition of “big tycoons and kings and princes and emperors” is trying to take America down through immigration, thus taking away power from Americans who celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas and the Fourth of July, and his cunning plan to stop this from happening by having Rep. Louie Gohmert or Rep. Steve King ascend to the presidency.

“The megawealth of the planet has never really been happy about the United States of America and this entire concept that we the people are self-governed and in charge and that big tycoons and kings and princes and emperors, like Obama’s acting like, are not in charge,” Gheen said. “And they’ve found a way to take over our corporations, to take over our media, to take over our country by facilitating a very costly and deadly illegal alien invasion.”

He warned that Americans are in “mortal danger” from immigration and from the “growing anti-Christ spirit and anti-Christ movement in this country that is becoming stronger and more emboldened as the traditional conservative center-right Americans are displaced in our jobs and our politics and elections.”

“When you look at a lot of places around the world like China and Cambodia and Vietnam and parts of Africa and other places where leftist-socialist things like this have occurred,” he added, “things have gotten apocalyptically bad for the group of people that had been in power before the socialists took over.” Talk about “demographic change in America as if it’s a natural thing to occur,” he added, is “a constant narrative in the media that has tried to make gun owners look bad, white Americans look bad, gun owners look bad.”

“That type of aggression – some of which you see it around the Ferguson situation, and you saw it around Duke Lacrosse and you saw it around the Trayvon Martin situation — these defamation, these stirring people up,” he said, is resulting in “the over 320,000 violent crimes minorities commit against whites in America.” He warned that America is going the way of London, which he claimed is rife with “prior illegal aliens storming into neighborhoods and bursting right into the houses to rape and pillage because they’ve already disarmed everybody through full gun confiscation.”

Gheen also warned that the goal of immigration reform is to bring in voters who will vote for Democrats, thus displacing Americans who celebrate Christmas, Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July: “Once this happens, the Socialist States of America are fait accompli, and anybody that represents the sort of moderate ground or center-right past Americans that celebrated Christmas and Thanksgiving and things like that, Fourth of July type Americans, will never be in charge of our own country.”

But luckily, Gheen has a solution. When a caller asked about how to “remove Obama from office,” Gheen proposed a simple plan. First, he said, “we’re working on Boehner and McConnell right now because those dominos have to fall and we can move to the next phase.”

The next phase, he said, would be for Congress to impeach and remove both President Obama and Vice President Biden.

Then the final piece of the puzzle comes into place: get Rep. Louie Gohmert or Rep. Steve King elected Speaker of the House, so he can ascend to the presidency until the next election is held.

William Gheen Suggests County Sheriffs Arrest Obama For Immigration Action

A national organization of county sheriffs will be gathering in Washington next month to protest President Obama’s executive action on immigration, and anti-immigrant activist William Gheen has an idea for what they can do in their spare time: arrest the president!

Gheen, the head of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, told WorldNetDaily today that the sheriffs have the “power and ability to arrest the president of the United States” and should consider deciding to “use their power to do this.”

Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who is organizing the event, did not comment on Gheen’s suggestion, but did tell WND that the Obama administration is using immigration to “overburden the existing system until it collapses” in order to replace it with a “socialist system.”

He also suggested that the U.S. government emulate Israel’s intense militarized border security on the southern border.

Hodgson said he has been calling for officials in Washington to bring in Israeli border security officials as consultants to help map out a comprehensive border security plan.

“Frankly … because nobody is better at border security than the Israelis,” he said.

Hodgson said he believes there’s more to it than just Washington lacking the will to do what’s right. He believes the Obama administration has sinister motives.

“They want to build a socialist system,” he said.

And how do you do that?

“You overburden the existing system until it collapses,” he said. “We can’t let it happen. Our Founding Fathers would disown us if we let it happen.”

Gheen, of ALIPAC, said he had a suggestion that he wishes the sheriffs would consider when they pay a visit to the nation’s capital next month.

“If the sheriffs are heading to Washington, how about suggesting the sheriffs take some of their best men to D.C. and they use their power and ability to arrest the president of the United States?” Gheen said. “I think if the sheriffs are going to Washington on Dec. 10 and the president continues to violate the Constitution of the United States, that they should consider arresting the president of the United States. What if the sheriffs decided to use their power to do this?”

Anti-Immigrant Activists: Obama Inciting Civil War By Making Immigration Announcement On Mexico's Revolution Day

Today, President Obama is scheduled to announce that he will grant temporary deportation relief to some immigrants living in the country illegally. Today also happens to be the Mexican holiday of “Revolution Day,” which commemorates the start of the Mexican Revolution in 1910. At least two anti-immigrant activists think this is not a coincidence.

In a press release today — which has already been dotingly covered by the Washington Times – anti-immigrant extremists William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and James Neighbors of Overpasses for America claim that by picking today for his announcement, Obama is creating “a permanent symbolic relationship between his actions and Mexico’s violent revolutionary and civil wars from 1910-1920!”

"Obama is making a powerful and dangerous symbolic declaration to large Spanish media audiences today comparing his new immigration orders to the violent Mexican revolution and civil war!" Gheen writes in the release, claiming that the decisions of major networks not to air the speech are meant to “keep most US citizens oblivious” as Obama sends a revolutionary message to Spanish-speaking viewers.

Unbeknownst to most Americans, Barack Obama currently plans to issue an edict that defies current US Laws and the US Constitution by establishing amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants on Mexican Revolution Day 2014, which is traditionally celebrated on November 20 in Mexico and by Mexicans everywhere.

November 20 is Mexican "Revolution Day" or Mexican "Civil War Day" which is the equivalent of America's 4th of July. Obama's choice of this date for his departure from his Oath of Office and the US Constitution creates a permanent symbolic relationship between his actions and Mexico's violent revolutionary and civil wars from 1910-1920!

"Obama is making a powerful and dangerous symbolic declaration to large Spanish media audiences today comparing his new immigration orders to the violent Mexican revolution and civil war!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Obama is timing his move to thwart the American public's voice in Congress to coincide with Mexican Revolution Day and the Ferguson verdict while CBS, ABC, and NBC will keep most US citizens oblivious tonight!"

In case it wasn't clear what they were getting at, Gheen included this image in an email to supporters promoting the press release:

William Gheen: Immigration Will 'Overthrow The American Republic'

William Gheen of the anti-immigrant Americans for Legal Immigration PAC appeared on Newsmax last week, where he declared that those who support immigration reform are either motivated by “simple greed” or want to “overthrow the American republic” by taking “the current stock of Americans” and replacing them with “a population that I guess is more agreeable to their political agendas or worldview.”

“You have an invasion that’s being conducted here by a lot of different actors who have a lot of different types of things to gain, from simple greed and increased profits for their companies and businesses, to others who see this as a way to overthrow the American republic, to take the current stock of Americans, throw us out of our jobs and homes and elections, and replace us with a population that I guess is more agreeable to their political agendas or worldview,” he said.

 

Right-Wing Activists Promise '60s Era Sit-Ins' To Keep IDs From Immigrants

Anti-immigrant activists William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and James Neighbors of Overpasses for America warned yesterday that if President Obama takes executive action to prevent the deportation of certain undocumented immigrants, they will respond with “60s era sit-ins” and chain themselves to the doors of government offices charged with distributing identification documents.

Gheen and Neighbors, who are teaming up with a number of groups including Numbers USA and the anti-Obama Two Million Bikers to D.C. this weekend to hold a series of protests linking undocumented immigrants to Ebola, appeared on Blog Talk Radio’s “Patriot Nation” show yesterday to promote the event and to warn of a possible executive action by Obama.

“We’re going to need some very brave people who are willing to face arrest by peaceably conducting ‘60s era sit-ins to actually go in and block those offices that will be set up all over the place to start giving ID to these illegal immigrants,” Gheen said. “We’re going to have to march into those offices and try to physically stop them from doing what they’re doing, hoping that that will awake this nation.”

Neighbors one-upped him, promising to “chain myself to the front door” of offices issuing documents to immigrants so “they’re going to have to arrest me.”

“I’ll chain my arm to yours, brother, and we’ll put a big piece of PVC around them so they can’t cut the chain and we’ll chain ourselves to the door and do what we need to do,” Gheen responded.

Anti-Immigrant Coalition To Hold Protests Blaming Undocumented Immigrants For Ebola

William Gheen’s Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and James Neighbors of Overpasses for America, the crack team that brought us this summer’s sparsely attended and unabashedly xenophobic protests against Central American children, are back with another round this weekend, this time attempting to tie undocumented immigrants to the Ebola virus.

In an email alert that went out to Gheen’s activist list yesterday with the subject line “New National Wave of Protests Against Obama, Illegla Immigration, & Ebola,” Gheen and Neighbors announce that a “new twist to this next wave of events will be protesters wearing medical face masks to protest Obama allowing Ebola into America.”

In the email, Gheen implies that undocumented immigrants — including the longtime U.S. residents who would be affected by immigration reform — are bringing Ebola into the United States. "Obama won't stop Ebola from entering America because to do so he would have to stop his immigration reform plans and illegal immigration!" he declares.

After making history in July with more than 300 protests nationwide in a 24 hour period, this next wave is designed to remind voters that Obama's policies are on the ballot in the November 4, 2014 midterm elections and which may become American's last chance to rebuke Obama and put a stop to his plans to decree amnesty for millions of illegal aliens before year's end! A new twist to this next wave of events will be protesters wearing medical face masks to protest Obama allowing Ebola into America.

"We need a Democrat apocalypse on November 4 and then to go after the Republicans facilitating Obama's dictatorial abuses of power and immigration reform amnesty, which are designed to permanently destroy America's borders, the Constitution, and the Republic!" said William Gheen President of ALIPAC. "Obama won't stop Ebola from entering America because to do so he would have to stop his immigration reform plans and illegal immigration!"

Some protesters will carry signs opposing Obama's plans to allow non American Ebola patients to be brought into America while refusing to stop non essential travel from Ebola infection areas. Others plan to wear face masks and bio suits in protest increasing the visual display attracting public attention with American flags and signs! [sic throughout.]

Not only have there been no cases of Ebola among undocumented immigrants in the United States, but there have been no cases in any of the top ten countries of origin of undocumented immigrants.

But, as we noted last week, the anti-immigrant movement has been hyping fears of Ebola in an attempt to tie the virus to immigration. Gheen is especially eager to tie his anti-immigrant activism to the right-wing issue of the day, including organizing rallies in support of the police officer who shot Missouri teenager Michael Brown.

Gheen and Neighbors are fringe activists, but they aren’t treated as such by many in the anti-immigrant Right. Their protests this summer were promoted by right-wing talk show hosts including Mark Levin and the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios, and one protest even included a birther-leaning speech by Rep. Steve King of Iowa.

The Center for New Community has posted a map of this weekend’s planned protests, with the note that many protests that Gheen and his allies announced this summer didn’t actually seem to take place at all.

Anti-Immigrant Zealot William Gheen Boasts Marco Rubio Is Now 'Quoting My Lines'

William Gheen, who runs the one-man anti-immigration group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, is the subject of a fawning profile in WorldNetDaily today that focuses on Gheen’s latest grand scheme: compiling an “America hate group list” of politicians and organizations that have every said or done anything in support of immigration reform.

Claiming that “tens of thousands of Americans have been killed” and “massive atrocities” have occurred because of undocumented immigrants, Gheen tells WND, “These open-borders traitors have opened America and Americans up to every unwanted thing around the globe.”

“There’s a host of motivations,” he adds, including some who “see it as a way to destroy the U.S. and lead to the eventual displacement of our citizens.”

One politician who hasn’t been spared a place on Gheen’s list despite his about-face on immigration reform is Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, even though Gheen boasts Rubio is “out there right now quoting my lines.”

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who like Paul has expressed interest in running for president in 2016, voted in favor of SB 744 but has been talking lately as though he is against amnesty.

“He’s out there right now quoting my lines. He was on Sean Hannity’s show a couple of weeks ago and my lines are suddenly on the lips of Marco Rubio,” Gheen said.

And it won’t take much to get on the list. Even if a candidate has a solid voting record, such as Paul, one comment that is made in favor of granting leniency to illegal aliens will be enough to land him on the list permanently, Gheen said.

“Once you go on the list, you’re always going to be on the list. You don’t get any second chances,” Gheen said. “Once we put you on that list, we are going to do everything in our power to make sure you are never elected or re-elected.”

He added, “Our plan is to make this the most comprehensive amnesty list in the country, so that when loved ones get the bad news that someone’s been killed by an illegal immigrant, or they lose a job, or lose their home, or maybe they lose a local school or hospital resource, they will know who to blame.”


“This is our America hate group list. It’s an America-hating group,” Gheen said. “That’s why the Southern Poverty Law Center will eventually be listed, as well as La Raza.”

Gheen said ALIPAC’s ultimate goal is to create two lists. One with amnesty supporters in business, politics and the nonprofit world and a second showing the victims of illegal immigration.

“We hope if we receive enough support that this list will be married to another list that will be for all those Americans that have lost their lives due to illegal immigration. It will be an online monument to the massive atrocities that have been committed against our citizens by this betrayal,” he said. “We’re now looking at a situation in which tens of thousands of Americans have been killed by this plan that has been furthered by the likes of Marco Rubio, George Bush, Jeb Bush, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg, the Chamber of Commerce and the list goes on. The blood from these victims of the illegal immigration invasion cries from the ground, and we hope to see the American people correcting the injustice.”

Gheen said ALIPAC does not have actual numbers of Americans killed due to the non-enforcement policies of the federal government, but he believes they are in the thousands.

“It’s through murders, drunken-driving deaths, deaths by diseases that have come in through unscreened illegal immigrants, including the Mexican flu,” he said. “These open-borders traitors have opened America and Americans up to every unwanted thing around the globe. We’re wide open to it. The defenses of the United States are down. There’s a host of motivations. Whether it’s corporate greed or liberal socialists with a political agenda, and some see it as a way to destroy the U.S. and lead to the eventual displacement of our citizens.”

William Gheen: Terrorists Not Attacking US Because They're 'Pleased' With Obama

In an interview with WorldNetDaily today, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen insists that “large numbers of terrorists” have come through the southern border but “they are not attacking us is because they are so pleased with the way things are going under President Obama.”

“If there were another 9/11 style attack, it would increase the public pressures to secure the border,” the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC leader explains. “Illegal immigration and Obama are doing more to destroy America than any terrorist attack could ever hope to achieve, so why would any terrorist want to upset what is already happening?”

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC or ALIPAC, said Babeu is just the latest in a long line of sheriffs growing increasingly frustrated by the federal government’s lack of interest in border security.

“Here you have a sheriff trying to do his job with no support,” said Gheen. “Large numbers of terrorists have already exploited the inadequate patrol of our borders, and the reason they are not attacking us is because they are so pleased with the way things are going under President Obama.”

Gheen said he believes thousands of potential terrorists have entered the country but are not attempting any attacks because they are quite happy with current policies coming out of the White House and the feeble Republican leadership.

“If there were another 9/11 style attack, it would increase the public pressures to secure the border. Illegal immigration and Obama are doing more to destroy America than any terrorist attack could ever hope to achieve, so why would any terrorist want to upset what is already happening?” Gheen asked. “The cartels are the same. We know there are thousands of cartel members all around us in America, but they’re not killing in the volumes they do in Central and South American because their agenda is proceeding and they are harvesting billions of dollars of wealth in America by turning our children into addicts of their chemical weapons, primarily cocaine and methamphetamine.”

Gheen said that while the main culprit right now is Obama and his administration, “he is being facilitated and assisted by Republicans in Congress,” such as Rep. John Boehner, R-Ill., and Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., along with the Republican National Committee and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Rhetoric on ISIS Shows the Right Wing Is Out of Touch with Reality

It’s not hard to understand that the Right Wing is out of touch, but sometimes it is hard to recognize just how out of touch its leaders really are.

Take, for instance, ISIS, the group of radical militants committing atrocities across Iraq and Syria, recently beheading two American journalists among many others. It’s a scary organization, but to the Right, it’s not as scary as, say, comprehensive immigration reform.

To Pat Buchanan, the threat of immigration and the “decomposition of this country” is significantly greater than that of ISIS. William Gheen of the anti-immigrant group Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) also claimed that undocumented immigrants are a greater threat to America than ISIS since, according to Gheen, “ISIS could cut off the heads of journalists once a month for the next five years and that’s not going to destroy America, but Obama’s pumping of illegal immigrants into the country will.”

Nor is immigration the only domestic issue the Right thinks bears a resemblance to a vicious foreign threat.

Vic Eliason and Mat Staver last week linked same-sex marriage in the U.S. to the beheadings by ISIS. According to Eliason and Staver, gay rights advocates are destroying morality and biblical values and creating an anything-goes society where people do whatever they need to—killing or beheading—to get what they want, just like ISIS.

What’s terrifying about these comments isn’t that they’re extreme, but that these right wing figures aren’t speaking in a vacuum. Their audience continues to represent an important part of the GOP base, and in some cases these speakers have a direct line to Republican politicians.

As progressives, we can’t ignore this extremism just because it seems disconnected from reality. For the far right, that’s never been an obstacle at all.

William Gheen: Obama Wants ISIS To Attack US So He Can Win Election, Impose Dictatorship

William Gheen of the anti-immigrant Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) told WorldNetDaily yesterday that undocumented immigrants are a greater threat to America than ISIS, but that President Obama will still encourage ISIS to attack America so that his party wins the upcoming elections and he can impose a dictatorship.

Gheen echoed the recent comments of Pat Buchanan, who said on the Laura Ingraham show that Democratic-voting immigrants are a greater threat to the country than ISIS terrorists.

Gheen also told WND that Mexico’s efforts to stop the influx of Central American child migrants to the southern U.S. border are in fact part of a plot to provide political cover for Obama until after the elections.

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration or ALIPAC, also said he believes concerns about ISIS overseas pale in comparison to the threat of rampant illegal immigration. He did not hear the Buchanan interview but made similar statements Monday to WND.

“ISIS could cut off the heads of journalists once a month for the next five years and that’s not going to destroy America, but Obama’s pumping of illegal immigrants into the country will,” Gheen said.

He said the Obama administration was “going into full stealth mode” to continue its open-borders policy as quietly as possible, and may even give the impression to some on the left that it is abandoning its commitment to “comprehensive immigration reform,” which is a euphemism for amnesty. The progressives will shout and scream that Obama is backing away from his pledge to grant amnesty by delaying the inevitable, but this is all political theater, in Gheen’s eyes.

“The only thing I believe that will stop Obama’s next window of completing the dictatorship plans is if there is a massive sweep of conservatives at the election polls in November that outdoes the historic shift of 2010,” Gheen said.

He said Obama is going “deep underground” with unmarked vans full of illegals being transported into the interior of the country. The administration has enlisted the help of various progressive groups, paying nonprofits, faith-based charities and private individuals to resettle the unaccompanied minor children in cities across the U.S.

“These individuals and groups can receive up to $10,000 a month to provide housing facilities and other aid,” Gheen said. “Obama has gone into full stealth mode.”

The government of Mexico is on board, helping to shield the operation, Gheen said, citing recent articles, including one by the Associated Press, that explain how Mexico is cracking down on undocumented Central Americans heading to its border with the U.S.

Mexico has also set up moving roadblocks, checking the documents of passengers on interstate buses.

“Mexico, also a partner in the planned North America Union, has taken steps to stem the flow of illegals until after the election,” Gheen said. “They’ve cleared the Beast (freight train) of illegals. They’re aware of the backlash and they’re trying to turn off that flow for now, until we get past the election.”

Gheen believes the news about the ISIS terrorist group’s atrocities in the Middle East also helps Obama and the congressional incumbents.

“If you look at history, the unfortunate result of terrorist threats and attacks has been to favor incumbents in Washington,” he said. “The American public’s prior reactions to terror threats and acts has been to support incumbents. There is a psychological theory that when citizens feel threatened they will instinctively cling to the devil they know, to the people in power that are familiar to them.

“Which means the Obama administration now has a political incentive for ISIS to threaten or actually carry out attacks because the precedent is that the people will reward you with more power and more money, which is what we did after 9/11, so when I see all this publicity of ISIS chopping off heads, I see it as political theater, I see it as psychological operations and attempts to manipulate the American public in the mid-term election cycle. It benefits all incumbents but because the Democrats control the Senate and White House it benefits them the most.”

The Right Wing's Immigration Hysteria: Round-Up

Here’s a round-up of last week’s Right Wing immigration hysteria:

Anti-Immigrant Leader Warns Response To Obama Executive Action Won't Be 'Peaceful And Political'

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, one of the key organizers of this month’s sparsely attended but prominently endorsed anti-immigrant protests, warned WorldNetDaily today that if President Obama were to issue an executive order preventing the deportation of some undocumented immigrants, that would amount to instituting “martial law” and Americans would face a choice between “subjugation” and actions that are “outside the purview of my peaceful and political efforts.”

Gheen frequently hints thatillegal and violent” means might be needed to push back against Obama immigration policies, although he denies supporting such means .

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, said any acts by the Obama administration to declare amnesty should be shot down immediately.

“That should not be possible because Obama doesn’t have the constitutional authority to declare any such amnesty for any group of people, and any declaration is a declaration of dictatorship and a form of martial law,” he told WND.

ALIPAC is organizing a second wave of national protests against amnesty starting Saturday, Aug. 2, and continuing through Oct. 24-25.

“I’m calling it martial law because it will be a form of law that is not the rule of law, not rule by Congress or the Constitution,” he said. “If Congress does not move to immediately correct the abuse of power, which Boehner has said he will not, then that leaves the American public with some very dire choices.”

Gheen said he didn’t want to discuss what those choices might be.

“One of those choices is subjugation; the other is outside the purview of my peaceful and political efforts, but I hope that people will channel their anger into the 2014 election cycle to politically destroy and remove from office as many Obama allies as possible, every Democrat and every Republican like Lamar Alexander and John Boehner. John Boehner is protecting the president. He is protecting Barack Obama.”

Gheen is now organizing a “second wave” of anti-immigrant protests in the states and districts of Republicans who he sees as too open to immigration reform or friendly to the president.

William Gheen and Alex Jones: Obama Using Obamaphones To Recruit Central American Kids To Become Child Soldiers

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC president William Gheen joined conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on his “Infowars” program yesterday to discuss Gheen’s pathetic nationwide rallies against Central American children fleeing to the southern border.

In just a few minutes, the two conspiracy-theory-minded activists combined their mental powers to develop a grand theory that President Obama is luring Central American kids with “Obamaphones” to recruit them to be child soldiers in a private army that will confiscate guns and crack down “in a totalitarian fashion against American citizens.”

“They’re doing that by bringing in people who have no shared national or cultural experience with us, that are willing to literally say or do anything that their new masters call on them to do to protect their positions,” Gheen said. “Once Obama brings these ‘kids’ in, gives them their Obamaphone, enrolls them in Obamacare, puts them in a public school, pays for their housing, pays for their foods…These people will do anything that their leaders call them to do, and I mean literally anything.”

“The problem about trying to take up full gun confiscation and cracking down in a totalitarian fashion against American citizens is, who amongst the country hates their fellow countrymen and women so much that you can turn them to do that? They only have a small section of people that are willing to do that, and it’s probably going to be the people who remain loyal to Obama to the very end,” he continued.

“These people that come in, if they come to them and say, ‘You must do this for your glorious leader or you’re going back to the jungle and you gotta give the phone back and the food back and the free lodging back,’ they’ll probably, most of them will make the decision to do about anything.”

“That’s like the African child slave soldiers,” Jones responded. “That’s how all those African countries are run is off of poor kids, they grab at 12 and give a machine gun to. Obama talks about his national security force, just as big, just as strong as our military. It’s so bold, but when you look at it, they really are doing that.”
