The asylum racket

Those newest illegal entrants to this country from Central America have come with the promise of being able to stay and receive benefits. And sure enough, right on schedule, that permission and those benefits are starting to flow.

Did anyone ever doubt this would be the case? Did anyone think that the phrase “expedited deportation process” had anything to do with actually being forced to leave the country? Exactly as expected—and fully expected by the new arrivals, too—what’s being expedited is the liberal (in several senses of the world) granting of asylum to droves of newcomers [emphasis mine]:

The Judiciary Committee says asylum approval rates have “increased dramatically” under the Obama administration. Overall, according to the committee statement, “Approval rates by asylum officers have increased from 28 percent in 2007 to 46 percent in 2013 and approval rates by immigration judges in affirmative cases have increased from 51 percent in 2007 to 74 percent in 2013.” And that does not count appeals.

“Once individuals are granted asylum,” the report notes, “they have access to all major federal welfare programs.

Anyone who followed the Boston bomber case was already aware of the vast amount of aid those granted asylum can and do regularly receive (even, or especially, under false pretenses, which is not at all unusual). When did it come to this? When did the law begin to take nearly all comers and, instead of giving them an opportunity to work, began to give them rewards and handouts for breaking the law and living off others?

    “When did it come to this?”

    My guess is that it started with Clinton.

  2. Oldflyer Says:

    Well, I had a superficial and snarky thought. At what point do we become an “Asylum”?

    Or, it may be a legitimate question.

    Today, William Katz, at http://www.urgentagenda.com, had an entry on the metamorphosis taking place in Europe, and the UK, because of their immigration policies, and feckless response to Muslim cultural demands.

    Unnoticed for the most part, we have been marching down the same road.

    Yes, the Islamification of Europe is proceeding right on schedule.
    Prescient quote from the past:
    “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”
    Algerian leader Houari Boumedienne speaking at the UN, 1974

    Prescient message from today; a popular T-shirt worn by Muslim youth in Stockholm reads: “2030 – That’s When We Take Over.”

    Though our illegal and legal immigration is of Hispanics, how long till La Raza’s ‘message’ becomes the dominant meme among poor Hispanics? Why would they respect a society that on one side is too guilt ridden to protect itself and on the other side, they are told is motivated by racial animus toward them?

    Same thing is going on in England: e.g., polygamous moslems with many wives in two-story houses paid for by the English taxpayers; the natives fulminate, and the Govt. tells them to shut it. Polygamy is still, as far as I know, illegal in Old Blighty, but hey. Can’t be narrowminded about that, and clit cutting, and the odd honor-killing here and there.

  5. n.n Says:

    “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it…”

    The first recording of evolutionary principles is in Genesis. It’s unfortunate that “enlightened” individuals reject both moral and biological principles. While the conspiracy which drives the invasion is a foreign and domestic effort, the unforced error committed by pro-choice Americans (and Europeans) is exclusively their own failure.

  6. Matt_SE Says:

    How is the determination of asylum reached? And can it be revoked?

    There needs to be heavy research over the next two years into the history and legal theory of nullifying a previous administration’s edicts.

    There needs to be a plan for multiple avenues of attack, to expand the justification if necessary for reversing administrative rules.

    As alarming as this sounds, if it is necessary to bend the laws to purge this blight, then so be it. The next administration needs to be anti-Obama.

  7. Matt_SE Says:

    One more thing:

    The next (Republican) administration needs to be willing to purge the 5th column in our party. If establishment types in Congress try to impede the undoing of Obama’s mischief, then they need to be made an example of.

  8. Sgt. Mom Says:

    Other bloggers and commenters at Chicagoboyz are often given to quote Bertolt Brecht:

    “After the uprising of the 17th of June
    The Secretary of the Writers Union
    Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
    Stating that the people
    Had forfeited the confidence of the government
    And could win it back only
    By redoubled efforts.

    Would it not be easier
    In that case for the government
    To dissolve the people
    And elect another?”

    Our establishment pols and bureaucrats are merely dissolving the people, and electing another … one more biddable – so they think. And if the replacement people appear to enjoy insulting and abusing the original people – their laws, cultural understandings and way of life – so much the better, in the opinion of the elite class.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
