DELRAY BEACH, FLORIDA, December 8, 2015 — After a pair of radicalized Muslims murdered 14 people in San Bernardino, California, the immigration debate flared up again.
Conservatives are mostly against allowing more Syrian refugees into the United States. Liberals by a majority are in favor of allowing the Syrians in. A small fringe of the extreme right blames all Muslims for terrorism, while far too many liberals refuse to admit that Islam plays any role in global terrorism. A reasonable middle ground taken by most mainstream conservatives is to clearly distinguish between the evil that is radical Islam and the normalcy of moderate Islam. Adding fuel to the fire, presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested banning all Muslim immigration to the United States.
There is a better solution that Republicans should embrace. America should immediately issue a moratorium on all immigration until after the 2016 election and completion of President Barack Obama’s presidency. Until January 20, 2017, not one new immigrant should be allowed on American soil.
This has nothing to do with Muslims, Mexicans or Mohicans. It has everything to do with the rule of law and attempts by Democrats to rig the 2016 election and every presidential election after that. For Democrats, the immigration has nothing to do with compassion and everything to do with politics, votes, and the ultimate prize of absolute power.
Compassion is not helping Mexicans, Syrian Muslims or anybody else realize a better way of life in America. Compassion is helping these people live better and safer lives in their own nation whenever possible. Does any honest person truly believe that Syrians want to flee the only home they have ever know, travel across several continents, and wind up in a foreign land where they do not know anybody, do not understand the language, and do not have money or a job to feed their family?
Syrians want the killing in Syria to stop.
Does anybody think Mexicans want to live in America? They want to work in America and bring the money back home to their families in Mexico.The old waves of immigrants wanted to be Americans. The new immigrants want their own nations to be better places to live. They do not want to risk disease, starvation and even death trying to make it to America.
Democrats know this but the power brokers do not care. They are hell-bent on importing as many immigrants as possible as quickly as possible. After getting shellacked in the 2014 and 2015 elections, Democrats know they are on the ropes. Barack Obama won his reelection in 2012 with only 51% of the vote. The odds favor Republicans in 2016 because winning three straight election is difficult. The only thing for democrats to do is change the electorate. This can be done in two different ways.
The subtraction method would be for Obama and Hillary Clinton to just kill as many conservatives as possible. Even Salon Magazine has not advocated this approach, although Obama has used the IRS and other government agencies to intimidate conservatives into participating in the political process. Selective political prosecutions have resulted in conservatives being jailed, including Dinesh D’Souza.
The more realistic addition method means bringing in new immigrants and getting them registered to vote as quickly as possible so that Hillary wins the White House.
Republicans have leverage on this issue. They can block every single judicial nominee to prevent Obama from rigging the federal courts. There is no reason for a single open bench seat to be filled right now. Until Obama stops trying to forcibly change the electorate, congress can clip his wings by depriving him of his judicial overreach opportunities.
If the immigration debate is truly about anything other than votes, then Democrats can wait until Obama leaves office to let people in. If liberals truly believe it is wrong for Trump to restrict immigration based on religious considerations, then it is just as wrong for liberals to try and enhance immigration for political and ideological reasons.
