Steve King: Build Tent City To House Child Migrants

Reps. Steve King and Michele Bachmann recently chatted with Jerome Corsi, the chief reporter of the conspiracy theory website WorldNetDaily, about the increase in unaccompanied minors crossing the border.

King, a Republican from Iowa, told Corsi that instead of “scattering these kids all over the country,” they should house them all in a tent city along the border.

For her part, Bachmann said that “100 percent of the girls coming up from Guatemala were on birth control” because they expected to be raped along the way to the U.S.

Steve Stockman: 'Third World' Obama Wants To Transform America's Culture

Rep. Steve Stockman claimed yesterday that President Obama is using the crisis of unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border as part of an effort to enforce his “Third World view.”

“Obama adopts a Third World view and demands not only we allow these people to remain, but suggests we should start teaching our children Spanish,” the Texas Republican told WorldNetDaily yesterday.

WorldNetDaily notes that Stockman was referring to remarks Obama gave at a campaign stop in 2008, where he was discussing the need for Americans, especially students, to learn more than one language. WND conveniently neglects to mention that Obama began his remarks by saying, “I agree that immigrants should learn English.”

And, of course, teaching children Spanish is nothing new — public schools across the country for decades have included Spanish classes in foreign language education.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, who spoke with WND for the same article, also skewered the Obama administration, alleging that officials “knew back then that this teenager invasion from Central America was on the way” and prepared a “school-in-a-box” to handle the young migrants.

Stockman is concerned Obama’s open-border policies, which have enticed a flood of unaccompanied illegal alien children to come to the border, are intended to push the United States toward a tipping point demographically.



“It’s a bizarre concept when you think about it,” Stockman told WND. “But what Obama is saying is that you have foreign guests in your house, and instead of them learning your language, you are expected to learn theirs.”

Stockman charged that Obama’s goal in allowing the current invasion from Central America is to change American culture fundamentally.

“Obama devalues the principles upon which this country was established,” he said. “He’s angered at Americans, as if we were the people causing the problems south of the border. So Obama adopts a Third World view and demands not only we allow these people to remain but suggests we should start teaching our children Spanish.”

Stockman questioned the political left’s insistence that compassion requires the U.S. to allow the unaccompanied minors to remain in the country even though they have crossed the border illegally.



Bachmann said she found evidence the Obama administration was anticipating the onslaught of young illegal aliens. The huge, DHS-contracted shelter facility operated by a nonprofit group was given was up and running in January.

“The facility was new, all decked-out, with classroom facilities and everything, and it looked to us like it was a ‘school-in-a-box’ prepared in January, evidently because the Obama administration knew back then that this teenager invasion from Central America was on the way,” Bachmann said.

PFAW Challenges Perdue’s Record in New Spanish-Language Radio Ad

Following David Perdue’s win last week in the Georgia GOP Senate runoff, People For the American Way released a Spanish-language radio ad today challenging Perdue’s history on jobs, workers’ rights, and immigration. The ad exposes Perdue’s record of exploiting workers in the private sector and his careless attitude about immigration reform, addressing issues important to voters.

This is the latest effort of PFAW’s award-winning Latino vote program working to mobilize Latino voters in key states, a constituency that can have a significant impact on elections, by highlighting the extreme views of GOP candidates.

Latinos currently make up more than 9 percent of Georgia’s population—enough to play a critical role in choosing the state’s next senator and governor.

The ad is running in Atlanta starting today until August 6. You can hear the Spanish version of the ad here.

Louie Gohmert Claims Central American Youth Are Lying About Violence

During a conference call last week hosted by GOP politician E.W. Jackson, Rep. Louie Gohmert dismissed concerns that young migrants are fleeing Central America due to drug violence, claiming that the children aren’t telling the truth.

“Texas and the United States is [sic] being invaded and we’re in danger,” Gohmert said, before alleging that most of the unaccompanied minors are lying when they tell border patrol agents that they are escaping gang violence in Central America and have been coached to make such claims. Gohmert said minors end up telling officers that “we were told to say that we were fleeing gang violence.”

The congressmen went on to say that “the penetration of criminals and terrorists across our southern border” represents a threat to the U.S. comparable to the threat of a nuclear strike from Iran against Israel.

He likened the immigrant “invasion” to D-Day, warning that undocumented immigrants were responsible for over six hundred thousand crimes in Texas over the past five years, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.

Gohmert called President Obama’s immigration policy the real “war on women” because it allowed immigrants to cross the border to rape women.

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.

Larry Pratt Predicts Immigration Reform Will Lead To 'Communism': 'Kiss Our Republic Goodbye'

Gun Owners of America head Larry Pratt has been insistent that Republicans must oppose immigration reform in order to save gun rights, which he claims are threatened by immigrants.

In an interview with extremist talk show host Stan Solomon that was posted online last week, Pratt alleged that immigration reform would destroy the GOP and therefore the country: “That means kiss our Second Amendment goodbye, it means, really, kiss our republic goodbye, because if you give the Democrats a lock on all of the levels of government, the country goes communist.”

“It’s just the end because they know no limit to the big government that they support,” he said. “It will be extremely dangerous, and gun owners will be early on in the sights of those Democrats that might be voted for by the newly minted voters. So the idea of amnesty is a really bad idea.”

Pratt and Solomon also agreed that Speaker John Boehner and the rest of the GOP leadership have effectively “switched sides” and joined the Democratic Party.

PFAW’s Latino Vote Program: Spanish-Language Radio Ad Challenges Perdue in Georgia

People For the American Way today launched its second Spanish-language radio ad of the cycle, challenging Georgia Senate candidate David Perdue and his extreme stances on jobs, workers’ rights, and immigration. The ad will air starting today in Atlanta. (An English translation of the ad is available below. You can hear an English version of the ad here.)

“David Perdue has an extreme agenda and he’s way out of step with Georgia’s Latino voters,” said Randy Borntrager of People For the American Way. “As a private citizen, he demanded profits at the expense of American workers. Now, as a Senate candidate, he wants to maintain low wages, outsource jobs, hand out tax breaks to corporations, and continue to ignore our broken immigration system. These are the real issues at stake in this election. This is why Latino voters deserve to know about Perdue’s twisted priorities when going into the voting booth this fall.”

This ad is the latest in PFAW’s campaign to highlight the extreme views of GOP candidates to Latino voters in key states. Georgia’s Latino population has grown rapidly in recent years, increasing by more than 110% since 2000. Latinos now represent more than 9% of the state’s population.

“Latino voters hold a tremendous amount of power in this election,” said Borntrager. “We’re making sure that this critical community understands what’s at stake in 2014 and that the Latino voice is heard loud and clear on Election Day.”

This is the second ad of the election in PFAW’s multi-state Spanish language campaign. Early this cycle, PFAW launched an ad challenging North Carolina senate candidate Thom Tillis on his own extreme views.

The script of the ad reads:

RODRIGO: Mientras más conozco del republicano David Perdue más miedo me da y más me doy cuenta que debemos unirnos en nuestro voto contra él este noviembre.
Desde que estaba en el sector privado, el republicano Perdue ha explotado a los trabajadores.
¡Y ahora como candidato al senado quiere seguir con lo mismo: quiere dejar que las empresas manden trabajos al extranjero, donde pagan sueldos tan bajos que son ridículos!
¡Aquí, se opone al aumento del salario mínimo pero está de acuerdo en subirle los impuestos a los trabajadores!
¿Y saben qué dice de la reforma migratoria? Que es una pérdida de tiempo.
¡El republicano David Perdue no lucha por los trabajadores y no luchará por nosotros!
¡Por eso tenemos que unirnos y defender nuestros trabajos, nuestra comunidad, y votar en contra de David Perdue y los republicanos!

Since working in the private sector, David Perdue has been exploiting workers.
And now as a candidate to the Senate, he wants to do the same: He wants to allow companies to send jobs abroad, where they pay salaries so low, they are ridiculous!
Here, he opposes an increase to the minimum wage but he agrees to raise taxes for workers!
And do you know what he says about immigration reform? That it's a waste of time.
The Republican David Perdue does not fight for workers and won’t fight for us!
That's why we have to unite and defend our jobs, our community, and vote against David Perdue and the Republicans!

Anti-Immigrant Rally Speaker Warns Housing Migrant Kids Will Turn 'Massachusetts Into Mexichusetts'

Speaking to an anti-immigrant rally at the Massachusetts statehouse this weekend, Boston radio host Jeffrey Kuhner warned that the state’s plan to take in about 1,000 children fleeing violence in Central America will destroy the country and turn “Massachusetts into Mexichusetts."

A WorldNetDaily report about the protest — which Kuhner called the “Stop The Invasion” rallyclaims that it drew 5,000 people; a local news station estimated that the number was about 1,000.

“As Shakespeare would put it, it is the national question: Shall we be or not be? Shall we exist as a nation jealous of its sovereignty, faithful to its law and its Constitution, protective of its citizens, or are we going to be transformed into a socialist third world banana republic which does what Mini-Me wants to do, what he is in the process of doing, if we don’t stop him now?” Kuhner said. “Because he is going to turn Massachusetts into Mexichusetts. And my answer to him is loud and clear: No mas, no more!”

By “Mini-Me,” Kuhner appears to be referring to Gov. Deval Patrick, who has introduced a plan to temporarily shelter 1,000 of the Central American children who have fled to the U.S. southern border.

Earlier this month, Kuhner devoted a whole episode of his radio show to the “Mexichusetts” theme, railing against Patrick for turning the state into a “dumping ground” and accusing him of “treason.”

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.”

BarbWire Pundit Thinks Obama Is Bringing ISIS Members Into America

Matt Barber’s website BarbWire recently started publishing the insane screeds of ultraconservative columnist Sher Zieve.

In her latest commentary for the far-right outlet, Zieve fails to disappoint.

Zieve writes today that President Obama, whom she describes as a follower of Satan, is set to “replace the current population in the US to incorporate non-English speakers who will vote for anyone who gives them free stuff,” mainly by bringing in “hundreds if not thousands of MS-13 gang members and Islamists…including ISIS/ISIL members” while cracking down on “those who follow the US Constitution and US law.”

As I’ve written repeatedly, the American people–including African-Americans and other Blacks–are being replaced. Obama and the Dems know the onslaught is coming against them this November because of their never-ending attacks against us all. Too many people for the Democrats’ liking have awakened to the truth…as the polls now affirm. Therefore, it’s time to replace the current population in the US to incorporate non-English speakers who will vote for anyone who gives them free stuff; something in which the Obama crime syndicate excels. And don’t think that these are just children. Obama has already brought in hundreds if not thousands of MS-13 gang members and Islamists…including ISIS/ISIL members.

As few seem interested in saving their country–or even themselves–better think about how much ammo you have on hand. The ObamaGestapo won’t go against the criminal element, folks. They’re coming for those who follow the US Constitution and US law. That’s us…

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders”–2 Thessalonians 2:9

Minuteman Project Leader Accuses Religious Groups Of Acting As 'Non-Violent Cartels' To Aid 'Covert Invasion'

In an interview with Newsmax today, Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist accused religious groups that support immigration reform and the humanitarian treatment of children at the southern border of being “non-violent cartels” who are aiding “the 21st century slave trade” and contributing to a “covert invasion” of the United States.

Gilchrist claimed that “criminal cartels and non-criminal cartels, the do-gooders and people who want to save everybody in the world on both sides of the border” are using child migrants as “human shields, not in the sense of warfare but in the sense of ideological warfare between foreign countries and the government of the United States, the people of the United States.”

When host John Bachman asked Gilchrist what he meant by “non-criminal cartels,” Gilchrist replied, “I would say the religious orders, and it’s not only the Catholic Church, and there are the Protestant church or whatever, it’s several religious orders, it’s several individuals who have banded together to allow this to happen, who want this to happen, for either religious reasons or political reasons or ideological reasons.”

Gilchrist is currently attempting to recruit thousands of volunteer militia members to patrol the southern border in a project he’s modestly calling “Operation Normandy,” a mission that Newsmax helped him to promote at the end of the interview.

Michele Bachmann: Children With Ebola And People From 'Terrorist Nations' Part Of Immigrant 'Invasion'

During her stop on Wednesday’s edition of “Faith & Liberty,” Rep. Michele Bachmann not only outlined her inflammatory anti-gay conspiracy theories and reasons why she supports impeaching President Obama, but also weighed in on the increase in unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border.

“People from Yemen, Iran, Iraq and other terrorist nations are making their way up through America’s southern border because they see that it’s a green light, they can easily get in,” the Minnesota Republican warned. “Not only people with potentially terrorist activities, but also very dangerous weapons are going to cross our border in addition to very dangerous drugs, and also life-threatening diseases, potentially including Ebola and other diseases like that.”

Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey, who like Bachmann has spoken out against vaccinations, also stoked fears about the completely bogus threat of Central American children carrying Ebola.

“This is madness,” she said.

Bachmann went on to claim that Obama is deliberately inviting child migrants into the country in order to establish a Democratic voting bloc, a theory also recently articulated by Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, and begin “transforming America into a Marxist economic model.”

“What he is doing by opening up this southern border, frankly, he is establishing a permanent political class that will vote for a big government mentality that will continually offer welfare decency programs,” she said, arguing that it is all part of a Saul Alinsky-inspired plot to bring communism to America.

The congresswoman argued that the House should move to defund the executive branch and impeach Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson over the “invasion” of child migrants, baselessly asserting that the children will bring diseases into the country and undermine the nation.

“We have this invasion because a political decision was made by our president to intentionally flaunt the laws of the land and put at risk the American people, our culture, our way of life, our economic standing, and also he’s willing to allow a pandemic of disease to come into our country,” she said.

William Gheen: Undocumented Immigrants More Dangerous 'Than Anything Al Qaeda Could Blow Up'

In an interview with the Tea Party News Network earlier this month, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen warned that undocumented immigrants are more dangerous than “anything that Al Qaeda could blow up, short of a nuclear detonation.”

Speaking with TPNN host Larry Altman on July 8, Gheen said that undocumented immigrants would “displace millions of American workers, cost untold Americans their lives, cost untold Americans their families and their homes and their mortgage payments” and warned that American children will be turned away from college “because invaders have been brought in the country and put in those seats ahead of” them.

Gheen said he was especially concerned about undocumented immigrants “coming from China,” possibly a reference to his theory that China will recruit immigrants to fight America from within.

Gheen, through his Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, was one of the primary organizers of last weekend’s not-so-successful rallies of anti-immigrant extremists.

Altman: Thousands of illegals crossing our border with basically no control. How many might be affiliated with maybe Al Qaeda, as an example?

Gheen: Well, what the illegals that are coming — and especially the ones that are coming from China — are going to do to America are much more powerful and lasting impacts than anything that Al Qaeda could blow up, short of a nuclear detonation.

You’re talking about millions of people that are going to displace millions of American workers, cost untold Americans their lives, cost untold Americans their families and their homes and their mortgage payments. Hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer resources. And how do you put a price tag on a family, let’s say that’s been in the United States for 300 years, and four or five different members of that family have gone off to World War II and Korea and maybe World War I to fight for the American way of life, and then finally they get to their grandson that’s alive in the year 2020 that doesn’t get to go to the college of his choice because invaders have been brought in the country and put in those seats ahead of him. That child’s life, that negatively impacts that child’s ability to self-actualize, to be all they can be, impacted because the future has been stolen by this usurpation, this treason, this treachery from the highest levels of our own government right here in the United States of America.

It is beyond the pale, it is outlandish, but it is a type of weapon from which the American people can never recover. Once they get enough people in here to get the boat really sinking, and then they get the borders destroyed and they start taking up all the guns and we’ve got wave after wave of future illegal immigrants pouring in and pouring in, the existing stock of Americans are going to be so politically and economically buried under this wave, that it’s a weapon from which we can never recover.

GOP Candidate In Arizona Promises To Fight 'The Gay Lobby,' Stop Illegal Immigration 'Before It's Too Late'

In a campaign ad that began airing last week in Arizona, Republican gubernatorial candidate Andrew Thomas boasts of having “stood up to the gay lobby” and promises to stop undocumented immigrants “before it’s too late.”

“When I enforced the law, illegal immigrants fled this state. Now they stay and protest” Thomas, a former Maricopa County attorney, says in the ad, as he’s flanked by a mostly-white crowd.

Thomas was disbarred in 2012 after facing corruption charges. He isn’t considered a frontrunner in a large Republican field that includes executive Christine Jones, State Treasurer Doug Ducey, Secretary of State Ken Bennett, former Rep. Frank Riggs, and others.

The Right Wing's Inflammatory Reaction to the Border Crisis

Share this article:

As we’re dealing with the refugee crisis on the southern border, right-wing elected officials have amped up their inappropriate, inflammatory rhetoric to dehumanize immigrants and attack immigration reform:

  • Sen. Ted Cruz announced last week that his new “top priority”  in Washington is to end President Obama’s deferred action program for DREAMers and deport undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. While trying to soften his appearance by bringing teddy bears and soccer balls to children at the southern border, he proclaimed that “as long as that promise of amnesty is there, more and more children will come... We need to eliminate the promise of amnesty.”
  • Rep. Louie Gohmert claims children being held are a problem because “we don’t even know what all diseases they have” and added that our healthcare system “can’t withstand the influx,” which, he believes was orchestrated by President Obama to recruit millions of people to cast fraudulent ballots for Democrats.
  • Sen. David Vitter has “had it with undocumented immigrants,” and tweeted on Friday that “enough is enough.” To deal with the crisis, he introduced a bill that would “require mandatory detention for anyone” that is in the U.S. illegally, in order to get “illegal aliens on the next plane home.” (Mother Jones calculated that this effort would require more than 64,000 planes to actually work.)
  • Rep. Tom Tancredo shared a similar plan when he said that President Obama should “sign an executive order saying all these people ought to be returned. Put them on buses or planes, send them back to the countries from which they came and have the governments there take care of it.”
  • Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, claimed that these unaccompanied minors from Central America are probably “gangbangers” and questioned why they are being sent to this county in the first place.

Of course, elected extremists aren’t the only ones making outrageous statements:

  • The Minuteman Project’s Jim Gilchrist said this crisis is “part of a concerted effort to transfer populations of Central America and Mexico into the United States using minor children, illegal immigrants under the age of 18, as human shields… to detour our ability to enforce our immigration laws.”
  • The American Family Association’s Sandy Rios suggested the child refugees should be quarantined like lepers used to be, harking back to “biblical times” when the “lepers were separated” because it was “understood that leprosy was so contagious.” Rios' fretted that these children are transported in the “same planes that you and I fly in… How do we know about lice and disease before they get on public transportation?”
  • Jody Hice, running to replace Georgia Rep. Paul Broun in the U.S. House, suggested that people take up arms in response to “a government that refuses to secure our borders” because “that is the reason we have a Second Amendment.”

The Right Wing's inflammatory rhetoric distorts the reality of the crisis, causing more conflict and damage.

William Gheen Warns Minorities Want To Lynch And Stab Anti-Immigrant Activists

Yesterday, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen explained the abysmal turnout at a string of anti-immigrant rallies that took place over the weekend by alleging that the “liberal media” promoted violence against opponents of immigration reform.

In an appearance on former congressman Ernest Istook’s radio show “Insights, Issues & Istook,” Gheen said journalists put conservatives “in danger of physical assault or harm” and attempted to issue a “threat of implied violence against you or your family members or your children in school.”

The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC president even warned that minorities may attempt to kill conservatives: “If somebody hangs a hood over your head and gags you and ties you to a light pole in a large city’s minority neighborhood, you’re probably going to get beat up, shot or stabbed.”

Gheen quoted Sarah Palin, who said that she was the victim of a “blood libel” in the wake of a shooting at an event featuring Gabrielle Giffords, to claim that the media persecutes immigration reform critics.

Getting people to show up at physical events has been the most difficult thing on the illegal immigration issue because you’re going to have some liberal at the local paper trying to cost you your job and your community standing by defaming you, what Palin called the ‘blood libel.’ When somebody tries to say you’re a racist, they are not saying this because you are a racist. They are doing this because it’s a control word, it’s a command word, it’s like in the Planet of the Apes movie, it’s like, ‘bow your head.’ Somebody comes out and says, ‘racist,’ most Americans will bow their head and kneel immediately, otherwise they risk complete financial and political ruin. It doesn’t matter if you are a racist or not, they will just stick it in the paper and then there you go.

The other thing about this, if they convince minorities or groups of minorities that you’re a racist, you’re in danger of physical assault or harm. It doesn’t matter whether it is true or not. If somebody hangs a hood over your head and gags you and ties you to a light pole in a large city’s minority neighborhood, you’re probably going to get beat up, shot or stabbed. And so there is the threat of implied violence against you or your family members or your children in school if they just lie about you.

The other thing is, all the major networks, CBS, ABC, NBC and now even Fox News are all on the same billionaire, elitist, talking point plan of supporting immigration reform, which translates into changing our laws to accommodate millions of illegal immigrants, which is a form of amnesty. And if that happens, the borders of the United States are gone forever.

GOP House Candidate Suggests 'Second Amendment' Response To Border Crisis

Jody Hice, a Republican candidate to replace Rep. Paul Broun in Georgia’s congressional delegation, told a conservative radio show last week that “we have the responsibility as individuals and as states to step up in those areas where our federal government will not,” and suggested that people might have to take up arms in response to “a government that refuses to secure our borders.”

In an interview with Liberty Conservatives last week, Hice predicted (correctly) that Texas would send National Guard troops to the southern border in response to the crisis of children fleeing violence in Central America.

But then he went further. In response to a question about the border crisis, Hice said, “that is the reason we have a Second Amendment.”

“Ultimately, it’s not about hunting and fishing and that type of thing,” he said. “It’s about our ability as individuals to defend ourselves, be it in our own private property, but most importantly, ultimately, it comes down to the right of defending ourselves against tyranny should our government ever become a threat to our liberties. And when you are talking about a government that refuses to secure our borders, you are talking about a government that is not taking seriously its responsibility to defend us.”

“We have the responsibility as individuals and as states to step up in those areas where our federal government will not,” he added.

Top Anti-Immigrant 'Expert' Says 'Being Hung, Drawn And Quartered' Is 'Too Good' For Obama

A senior policy analyst for the Center for Immigration Studies, which bills itself as the think tank of the anti-immigrant Right, told a Florida-based Tea Party group last week that President Obama not only deserves impeachment, but that “being hung, drawn and quartered is probably too good for him.”

The Center for New Community’s Imagine 2050 blog first reported on Stephen Steinlight’s remarks.

Steinlight also said that John Boehner’s lawsuit against the president is a “political loser” and claimed that while Obama deserves to be impeached, such an effort would backfire on Republicans.

CIS describes Steinlight as “one of the nation’s most insightful voices on immigration” who provides “expert testimony” for government panels.

A rash of opinion polls which have come out, not push polls, real polls, including one by Gallup that showed that 65 percent of the American people don’t want any part of an Obama-style immigration reform. But the idea of this [lawsuit] is vintage Boehner, it’s a political loser. There is no court that is going to stop Obama from doing anything. We all know, if there ever was a president that deserved to be impeached, it’s this guy. Alright? I mean, I wouldn’t stop. I would think being hung, drawn, and quartered is probably too good for him.

UPDATE (7/24): CIS now says that Steinlight has been "reprimanded" for his remarks:

When reached for comment, Steven Camarota, director of research at CIS, distanced the organization from Steinlight's remarks.

"Steve was speaking figuratively and hyperbolically, obviously, for effect. In that respect his intemperate comments were similar to those who are often critics of President Bush, and I would say like those comments, they are ill-advised," Camarota told The Huffington Post. "I would also say that the Center for Immigration Studies does not in fact support drawing and quartering the president."

CIS officials also said Steinlight had been disciplined and instructed to avoid similar rhetoric in the future.

"I reprimanded him and put a reprimand in his personnel file," said CIS Executive Director Mark Krikorian.

CIS is an organization that advocates reducing immigration into the United States. Steinlight has said that Hispanic immigration would lead to the "unmaking of America," and that Muslims should be banned from immigrating to the United States because they "believe in things that are subversive to the Constitution."

"Steve sometimes has used impolitic language and I admonished him to choose his words more carefully in the future," Krikorian said.

Compassionate Conservative Ted Cruz Hands Out Teddy Bears At The Border, Then Moves On To Deporting Dreamers

Sen. Ted Cruz announced last week that his new “top priority” in Washington is to end President Obama’s deferred action program for DREAMers and start deporting undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.

But to show that he is approaching his new top priority in a compassionate way, Cruz made a stop at the border this weekend to help Glenn Beck hand out his truckload of teddy bears and soccer balls to children who have come to the southern border fleeing violence in Central America.

Cruz and some of his fellow Republicans are doing their best to pin the influx of Central American children on Obama's deferred action for DREAMers — although the evidence shows that that is not the case — and to thereby frame deporting DREAMers as the solution to the child refugee crisis.

Cruz told Beck’s The Blaze network that “our country has always been a country of compassion, of humanity,” but “as long as that promise of amnesty is there, more and more children will come.”

“In my view, it is altogether appropriate that private charities and private churches are showing Christian love, are caring for these children,” he said. “But at the same time we need to eliminate the promise of amnesty.”

 

 

 

Is The Border Crisis God's Judgment For Legal Abortion And Gay Marriage? Or A Popish Plot?

Today, Rick Joyner's Oak Initiative sent out an email to activists asking if the crisis along the southern border just might be God's judgment on America for allowing legal abortion and same-sex marriage.

Written by Kenneth L. Carozza, the piece declares that while evangelicals have a lot in common with Catholics, they cannot support calls from Catholic leaders to back immigration reform because Catholics have an ulterior motive: "Rome might see the alien deluge into the U.S. as a quick road to bigger parishes regardless of the form of government that survives."

The crisis, Carozza declared, just might be God's judgment upon this nation and a sign for America to seal its border and implement voter ID laws before conservatives permanently "lose any chance of winning the pro-life, marriage and religious liberty issues":

Does our nation gain God’s favor if officials advocate for children crossing the Rio Grande but fail to guarantee safe passage through the birth canal? Such carnage in the womb occurs within our U.S. borders daily. Additionally, in 2003 Justice Scalia predicted that with the repeal of sodomy laws, sodomy would become institutionalized. Today our little children learn a new euphemism in school, “same-sex marriage.” At the university level, academics are paving the way for pedophilia to be viewed as one more sexual orientation. Closer to home, we have tolerated emergent church leaders who undercut God’s justice by eroding hell. With this modeling, is it any wonder that policy makers undercut just laws and erode U.S. borders?

If the alien invasion is a sign of divine judgment, shouldn’t we still act to minimize the effects? If we experienced a judgment of drought we would still dig wells; if famine, we would still forage for food. While our first task is to humbly call people to repentance through Christ, we should unashamedly cry out that U.S. borders be secured. Exclusion has appropriate precedents.

...

We allow terrorists to become Mirandized, illegals to receive defense counsel (at taxpayer expense) and unbeknown to many, most states do not require a photo ID to vote. How do our military men and women feel about our lax border security and cheapening the requirements for citizenship?

The top public policy issue today needs to be securing the borders now. We have immigration laws. Let’s first restore equilibrium. Secondly, we must insist on a photo ID at the polls. If we lose the integrity of elections, conservatives will lose any chance of winning the pro-life, marriage and religious liberty issues. Losing elections through voter fraud will likely cost us our rights to free speech and assembly. With dagger in hand, political correctness awaits that day.

So is this God’s judgment? Perhaps we will know in time. For now, we need evangelicals confident in a biblical basis for limiting the border deluge. No false guilt trip need dissuade us. Our nation needs protection from lawlessness. Let’s love our alien neighbors with the prudence of a savvy lifeguard who won’t allow herself to be pulled under in the rescue. Let’s enforce and obey the present Constitutional laws of immigration and welcome as new citizens those who respect our laws. Put the “protest” back into Protestant and insist that we secure our borders!
