  • Merkel Praises “Squad” [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 21 July 2019 | John Semmens
    German Chancellor Angela Merkel criticized President Trump’s recent tweets about the four female congresswomen known as the “Squad,” calling his perspective “short-sighted.” “What President Trump is trying to do is a futile attempt to prevent the future from happening,” Merkel said. “Anyone who has a brain has to be aware of the fact that Islam is the wave of the future. In accord with this reality, I’ve overseen the immigration of nearly two million Muslims into Germany since I’ve been chancellor. These fierce and fertile people will restore Germany to its rightful place on the continent and in the world.”...
  • Outpouring of Support From Immigrants For Trump’s ‘You Can Leave’ Comments

    Last week, I published a column for TownHall.com entitled I, Immigrant, Agree With Donald Trump — If You Are Not Happy Here, You Can Leave! To be honest, I did not expect much support for my position after seeing the highly critical initial reactions to Trump’s words from conservative commentators. I strongly disagreed with the commentators who disparaged Trump for voicing what I felt was obvious. Unlike these commentators, I felt elated when Trump spoke the truth, confronted the Islamo-Utopians, and told Ilhan Omar to put her money where her mouth is. I published the column because I felt the American...
  • USCIS Announces Plan to Improve the Naturalization Test

    07/21/2019 8:17:19 PM PDT · by yesthatjallen · 14 replies
    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is revising the current naturalization test with improvements to ensure it continues to serve as an accurate measure of a naturalization applicant’s civics knowledge and that it reflects best practices in adult education assessments. The goal is to create a meaningful, uniform, and efficient test that will assess applicants’ knowledge and understanding of U.S. history, government and values. This spring, the former USCIS director signed the Revision of the Naturalization Civics Test Memorandum (PDF, 202 KB). This memorandum announces the revision of the naturalization test and formalizes a decennial revision schedule of the naturalization...

    At an Onyejekwe family get-together, you can’t throw a stone without hitting someone with a master’s degree. Doctors, lawyers, engineers, professors — every family member is highly educated and professionally successful, and many have a lucrative side gig to boot. Parents and grandparents share stories of whose kid just won an academic honor, achieved an athletic title or performed in the school play. Aunts, uncles and cousins celebrate one another’s job promotions or the new nonprofit one of them just started. To the Ohio-based Onyejekwes, this level of achievement is normal. They’re Nigerian-American — it’s just what they do. Today,...

    The growing ranks of homeless persons and the continued invasion of our country by millions of illegal immigrants have generated a severe shortage of housing across the US. The editors of the New York Times have offered an "outside-the-box" solution that "would tap into the housing surplus currently being squandered by archaic attitudes toward property rights." The editors start off by pointing out that "as a general rule, most Americans have more house than they need. What we are suggesting is that the appropriate public policy could put this surplus to more efficient use by requisitioning this space for the...

    AOC hit the ground screaming when she arrived at the El Paso Station Justice Democrats NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), and her activist sistahs, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan (Marry-your-Brother) Omar and Michigan Rep. expletive-hurling Rashida Tlaib have moved into their own Hoax Huckster Fabrication Factory. The Hoax Hucksters are now sending out hype and lies—coming straight out of the toilet. All three are well-tooled in the dirty art of socialist activism, but AOC, putting into use her casting call background, is the leader of the screaming jackal pack.

    As Chairman of the Otero County Board of Commissioners my heart is heavily burdened for my constituents as they struggle with the crisis on our nearby southern border. It is no accident that New Mexico is now the most dangerous state in the country for both property and violent crimes. Our border crisis has two related elements: narcotics and human impacts. They are two sharp edges of the same sword. The human impact edge. New Mexico ranks last, or nearly last, in every measurement of life quality and we lead in every negative statistical category, including child hunger. Both drive...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 06/12/19 | Jon Brown
    The New York State Assembly passed a bill Wednesday that would allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses. Passing the lower chamber of the New York State Legislature with a vote of 86-47, the bill needs only to pass the New York State Senate before heading to the desk of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has expressed his readiness to sign it. The law would allow residents to use passports from other countries and other foreign-issued documents to prove their identities at the Department of Motor Vehicles. The state's Association of County Clerks is opposed to the law, arguing that its...

    Roughly 350 migrants from the Congo are expected to arrive in San Antonio in the coming days leaving the city scrambling for French-speaking volunteers. "We didn't get a heads up," Interim Assistant City Manager Dr. Collen Bridger told KEN 5 on Thursday. Bridger said the Congolese migrants began to arrive in town on Tuesday. They told Migrant Resource Center workers, they traveled with a group of about 350 migrants through Ecuador to the southern border. "When we called Border Patrol to confirm, they said, 'yea another 200 to 300 from tOn Wednesday alone the migrant center saw a total of...

    NORTH VERSAILLES, Penn. -- Starr DeJesus admits she learned a lot about both the generosity of the American people and her own potential from an immigrant who spoke to her civics class. "I didn't know it was just an America thing to tip servers," the high school senior and part-time Denny's server said. "We rarely emphasize the good things about our culture. The only things you ever hear about on social media are complaints or criticisms." DeJesus said she also didn't consider how much it is within her own power to earn more money. "You gotta push," she said. "Some...

    It hasn’t been China that has been the source of sudden escalation; nor Iran; nor North Korea; nor Turkey, who admittedly gave it a good go in announcing they may install Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missiles in the area of the Mediterranean they are looking for energy in despite protests from the EU’s Cyprus it’s their naval territory; nor even Italy, where Deputy PM Salvini is threatening new elections that would very likely strengthen his hand further has he prepares for battle with Brussels.

    Guatemala’s towns are emptying out as a growing number of migrants head north to accept the Democratic Party’s offer of open-border loopholes and low-wage jobs, say a growing number of local reports. Roughly one percent of Guatemala’s population has migrated to the United States’ border since September 2018, according to the Department of Homeland Security. That adds up to roughly 170,000 migrants, and roughly one-third of those migrants come from the neighboring rural districts of Huehuetenango and San Marcos. The result of this U.S. government policies is that many villages are with empty homes, fatherless families, absent men, and minimal...

    On last night's Game of Thrones, the priestess Melisandre saunters in at the last possible minute to light up the Arakhs of the Dothraki in flames. It both offers the assembled forces of Winterfell and the audience at home a brief glimmer of hope before the next sixty or so minutes of horror film-meets-battle scene tension, and results in a clever cinematic trick. [snip] Narratively however, it also also literally represents the end of what was left of Daenerys' 100,000+ Dorthraki horde. Assumedly, sure, there's the woman and children and possibly a few rogue hoards of Dothraki still left in...
  • On Stephen Moore’s ‘Brainiac’ Immigrants [H1-B]

    National Review ^ | April 25, 2019 | Jason Richwine
    n praising the “brainiacs” who hold H-1B visas, Stephen Moore writes that “the firms that use these visas must affirm that they were not able to find comparably skilled American workers to do the jobs.” That claim is generally false. Most firms are not even required to advertise the position before applying for an H-1B worker. (Recruiting Americans prior to applying for an H-1B is required only for employers deemed “H-1B dependent” or “willful violators.”) Moore’s piece has remained uncorrected on the Dallas News site for six days and counting. The error is important because it touches on a key...

    At least 1,300 mainly Cuban migrants fled on foot from an immigration detention center on Mexico’s southern border Thursday in the largest mass escape in recent memory. The National Immigration Institute said 700 of the Cubans had returned voluntarily, but 600 were still on the loose. The institute said agents inside the compound weren’t armed and “there was no confrontation.” Federal police with riot shields later streamed into the compound to control the situation, as a crowd of angry Cubans whose relatives were being held at the facility gathered outside.
  • Most Illegal Immigrants In US Receive Government Benefits, Costing Taxpayers Billions: Experts

    Fox News ^ | 4-22-2019 | William La Jeunesse
    The case underscores what experts say is a growing cost to taxpayers from the surge of Central American families and unaccompanied minors. "We're talking about billions of dollars in taxpayer benefits over the next few years," said Dan Stein, director of the right-leaning think tank, Federation for American Immigration Reform. "The payout for the taxpayer is enormous and income to the Treasury is miniscule." A FAIR study in 2017 found illegal immigrants are a net consumer of taxpayer benefits worth more than $100 billion a year, not including the cost of enforcing the border. While federal benefits are supposed to...

    CONCORD, Calif. (KGO) -- It appears, at this point, a controversial plan to build an immigrant detention center at the former Naval Weapons Station in Concord is not moving forward. The news came just as the city council there was starting an emergency meeting on the issue. "There will be no relocation camps in Concord or California," announced Guy Bjerke, Concord's Director of Community Reuse Planning, to open the meeting. "Just a few moments ago, Congressman Mark DeSaulnier called the city manager and further informed us he has informal confirmation that there is no intention of establishing detention facilities in...

    Pop icon Cher said Sunday that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants. Cher said she failed to understand how the city of Los Angeles in the sanctuary state of California could afford to admit and take care of any more immigrants when city officials have failed to care for homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans. “I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY?
