George Will: We Should Say ‘Welcome To America’ To Undocumented Minors

 

 

“I think Kirsten is largely right. My view is that we have to say to the children, ‘Welcome to America. You’re going to go to school and get a job and become Americans,'” he said.

 

“We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county. The idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous,” he continued, mocking Republicans for warning that many of the young immigrants are dangerous.

 

Host Chris Wallace seemed surprised by Will’s take, though the conservative columnist has called for immigration reform before. Wallace asked Will what he would say to someone who feels the U.S. should not have to take care of Central America’s problems.

 

“We can handle this problem, is what I’m saying,” Will responded, adding that the U.S. has accepted larger waves of immigrants before.

A group of about a dozen self-described anarchistic communists started a minor riot at the Murrieta protest against Obama’s illegal-alien trafficking on Independence Day, 2014.

 

One of the communists reportedly crossed the street and slapped a woman on the anti-illegal-immigration side. When the police arrest her, she resists and pandemonium breaks out. Five communists are eventually arrested in total.

Then we have a murderous nation of racist caucasian folks, The “Americans”, killing those Native Americans for “THEIR” land, and stealing that land. Now we have dumbass “AmeriKKKans” telling people who originally owned TexASS, to go “home.”

Jon Stewart Rips Republican Paranoia Over Refugee Children

 

 

 

I listened to a news report this morning that told me the Governor of the state I vote in, Iowa, has made a public statement that immigrant children are NOT welcome in “His” state of Iowa.

 

Just sit back and read along……

 

Terry Edward Branstad (born November 17, 1946) is an American politician who is the 42nd Governor of Iowa, in office since January 2011. Branstad was also the 39th Governor of Iowa from 1983 to 1999, and he was President of Des Moines University from 2003 to 2009. He is a member of the Republican Party. Branstad is the longest-serving governor in Iowa history, and the second-longest serving governor in U.S. history.

 

In his 2010 political comeback, Branstad won a three-way primary election for the Republican nomination to run for governor in the general election. He faced incumbent Governor Chet Culver, a Democrat, and four third party candidates on November 2, 2010. He won the general election in November, defeating Culver by 52.9% to 43.1%.

 

Branstad entered the 2010 race as the front runner for both the primary and general elections. Independent polling in 2009 indicated that his approval ratings hovered in the 70% range. He was widely seen as the front runner for the Republican nomination, and had wide leads in aggregate polling against the scandal-ravaged Governor Culver. He won the Republican primary with 50.4% of the popular vote, 9.5 percentage points ahead of his nearest competitor.

 

On January 15, 2014, Branstad officially launched his re-election campaign for what would be an unprecedented sixth four-year term as Iowa governor, which would also make him the longest-serving governor in U.S. history (breaking the record held by George Clinton of New York, who served 21 years from 1777 to 1795, and from 1801 to 1804).

 

Now I know the above stuff is boring, but here is where it gets interesting………

 

Early life

Born to a Norwegian-American Lutheran farming family in Leland, Iowa, Branstad received his undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa and his law degree from Drake University Law School.  After getting his undergraduate degree, he was drafted and served in the United States Army from 1969 to 1971, serving as an MP (Military Police), and was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service; he once recalled that he arrested actress Jane Fonda for coming onto post at Arlington National Cemetery, where she was planning to attend an anti-war protest. In 1989, he was named an honorary member of Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity at Iowa State University.

 

Allow me to repeat that, in case you missed the facts…..Born to a Norwegian-American Lutheran farming family in Leland, Iowa. Mr. Branstad is himself an immigrant based on the fact that his parents were/are Norwegian, as were his grandparents. The name Branstad is NOT Native Americans, so Mr. Branstad himself is an immigrant.

 

As the opening graphic states, unless your heritage, culture or lineage is Native American, YOU ARE AN IMMIGRANT.

 

One doesn’t even have to learn the history of America during the systematic slaughter and incarceration of the Native American people to know America is NOT the home of the brave or the land of the free…..unless you happen to be wealthy, caucasian and male. America and Americans raped, killed, slaughtered, murdered and enslaved an entire culture to acquire this land that current day protesters claim as “their land.”

 

These disgusting asshats who wrap themselves in the American flag, are themselves immigrants.

“A Native American man criticized protesters at an Arizona rally against illegal immigration, calling them the real “illegals” for invading his country and killing Native Americans when Europeans first settled on US soil.

 

“You’re all f*cking illegal. You’re all illegal,” the Native American man yelled at the protesters, who had gathered in Tucson, Arizona to demonstrate their opposition to illegal immigration by Central and South Americans. “We didn’t invite none of you here. We’re the only native Americans here.”*

 

A Native American man protested an anti illegal immigrant protest in Arizona by pointing out the protestors hypocrisy. “Get on with your bogus arguments. We’re the only legal ones here.”

Have AmeriKKKans lost their minds? Have Black Americans become the new “House Negros” Malcolm X warned us about, beggin for table scraps from massa’s table for recognition & acceptance? Black Americans should be the very last race of humans agreeing with dumbass caucasians on immigration issues. Have you new-age Negroes forgotten from whence YOUR ancestors came?

 

This scenario is a made for TV movie straight from the land of irony…..

Screaming, frothing at the mouth, flag waving AmeriKKKan immigration protesters standing in front of buses that contain groups of undocumented “CHILDREN” as the buses attempt to deliver these “CHILDREN” to immigration reception centers. The signs saying , “go home”, “we don’t want you here”, “this is OUR land.” Do you see the irony? Do you see the dumbfuckery?

 

Just to be clear, so there is no misunderstanding……

Remarks by the First Lady at a Naturalization Ceremony

 

The National Archives
Washington, D.C.

MRS. OBAMA:  Well, let me join Jeh by saying good morning, my fellow Americans.  Sounds pretty good, huh?  (Laughter.)  You like that, right?  All right, I’m going to loosen you up if it takes all morning.  You’re now citizens!  It’s very cool.  (Laughter.)  And I am honored to be here.  This is an exciting day, and it’s just wonderful that I can be among the first to congratulate you on becoming American citizens.

 

And I also want to welcome your family and friends who are here — let’s see the family members who are here.  Where are they?  You guys are here, that’s good, that’s good.  Yes.  (Applause.)  I know how important these people are because I know that they’ve supported you every step of the way.  And I see that they are beaming with pride, so welcome.

 

I want to thank Secretary Johnson, Director Scialabba, for taking the time to be here today and for their tremendous work.  I also want to especially thank David and the incredible staff at the National Archives for making today’s event possible.  This is a beautiful setting.

 

2

 

It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history.  And like the 50 of you, none of them were born American — they became American.

 

Just like you’re about to pledge allegiance to our flag, they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to this extraordinary idea that we now know as America -– the notion that we are all created equal, endowed with fundamental rights and freedoms that no one can ever take away from us.

 

People come from across the globe to see these documents, to read the names and signatures of the very first “Americans-by-choice,” because they know that this room holds the first chapter of our shared history.  And today, it holds the next chapter of our story, as well.

 

3

 

As the newest “Americans-by-choice,” you, too, will play an important part in shaping our history.  Some of you were brought here as children.  Others came here to be with a loved one.  Some of you, like Parish Sapkota, have risked their lives for this country by serving overseas.  Others haven’t worn the uniform themselves, but have served America by supporting a spouse or a child who has.

 

Take Blue Star Mom Zlatka Stefanova.  Her son Marian was wounded in an ambush in Iraq.  He spent 18 months at Walter Reed recovering from his injuries.  And today, with the love and support of his mother, Marian is a proud officer in the Fairfax Police Department.

 

But no matter what your story, from this day forward, for the rest of your lives, you will always be able to say, “Yes, I am an American citizen.”  And I know this is an exciting, hopeful time for all of you, but it’s also an exciting, hopeful time for our country.  Because the fact is, America needs you.

 

Immigration is at the heart of how we developed as a nation.  In every generation, immigrants have earned their place as part of “We the People.”  With the exception of just a few ethnicities, every person in this country can trace their history back to a parent, or a grandparent, or a great-grandparent, or an ancestor who made that choice to be part of this country.

 

And today, much of our success is because we still very much are a nation of immigrants.  Immigrants start roughly one in four of our new businesses.  About 30,000 permanent residents serve in our military.  And according to one study, over the past 50 years, more than a quarter of our Nobel Laureates based in the U.S. have been foreign-born.

 

4

 

So in many ways, it is because of, not in spite of, our immigrant population that we grow stronger every single day.  Yet today, here in Washington, folks are still debating whether or not to fix our immigration system even though just about everyone agrees that it is broken.  But I want you all to know that my husband has made this his top legislative priority, and he refuses to give up the fight.  Because at the end of the day, this fight isn’t just about abstract principles, it’s about real people.  People like you.  People like us — our fellow Americans.

 

That’s who you are.  You came here today as citizens of 44 different countries, and you’ll leave here as citizens of one great nation -– the United States of America.  And I hope that you never take that for granted, because I know how hard you worked for this.  You earned it.  And to be a citizen of this country is an incredible blessing.

 

5

 

And what I hope you always remember is that, as citizens, we do not shut the doors of opportunity behind us.  We preserve the promise of America.  We renew it.  We extend it so that future generations of Americans -– Americans by birth and “Americans-by-choice” -– can do their part to form the more perfect union that our founders imagined so many years ago.

 

So I want to once again congratulate you on this important honor, this extraordinary honor.  And I wish you the very best of luck on your journey ahead as citizens of this great country.

 

2014-06-18t160913z_1866296023_gm1ea6j003u01_rtrmadp_3_usa-immigration

 

Thank you so much, and God bless.  (Applause.)

White House White Board: Why Immigration Reform Is Good For Our Economy

 

Published on Jul 11, 2013

It’s clear commonsense immigration reform is good for the economy as a whole. Don’t take our word for it — study after study has shown that commonsense immigration reform will strengthen the economy, spur innovation, reduce the devotion and increase US trade and exports.

America has always been a nation of immigrants, and throughout the nation’s history, immigrants from around the globe have kept our workforce vibrant, our businesses on the cutting edge, and helped to build the greatest economic engine in the world. However, America’s immigration system is broken and has not kept pace with changing times. Today, too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers and there are 11 million people living and working in the shadow economy. Neither is good for the economy or the country.

 

The Senate’s Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act (S. 744) represents the best chance that our country has had in years to modernize our immigration system. The President urges the House of Representatives to take action and move this bill or similar legislation forward, and stands willing to work with all parties to make sure that commonsense immigration reform becomes a reality as soon as possible.

 

During a meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus this morning, the President released a White House report highlighting the extensive economic benefits of comprehensive immigration reform – and the significant costs to our country and our economy of failing to act at this critical time.

 

Economists, business leaders, and American workers agree – we must take advantage of this historic opportunity to fix our broken immigration system.  At stake is a stronger, more dynamic, and faster growing economy that will foster job creation, higher productivity and wages, and entrepreneurship.

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

 

Commonsense immigration reform strengthens the overall economy and grows U.S. GDPIndependent studies affirm that commonsense immigration reform will increase economic growth by adding more high-demand workers to the labor force, increasing capital investment and overall productivity, and leading to greater numbers of entrepreneurs starting companies in the U.S.

  • The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that enacting the Senate immigration reform bill will increase real GDP relative to current law projections by 3.3 percent in 2023 and 5.4 percent in 2033 – an increase of roughly $700 billion in 2023 and $1.4 trillion in 2033 in today’s dollars.
  • The bipartisan Senate bill will increase the labor forceby 3.5 percent in 2023 and 5 percent in 2033, according to CBO, which will boost capital investment and lead to increased productivity and higher overall average wages.

 

 

Commonsense immigration reform fosters innovation and encourages more job creation and job growth in the U.S.The bipartisan Senate bill makes meaningful improvements to the existing employment-based green card system and strengthens the United States’ ability to attract and retain highly-skilled talent from around the world. Recent studies have shown that immigrants promote productivity and innovation, both directly and indirectly through positive spillover effects on American workers.

  • According to the Fiscal Policy Institute, immigrant-owned small businesses generated a total of $776 billion in receipts and employed an estimated 4.7 million peoplein 2007.
  • The Partnership for a New American Economy found that immigrants started 28 percent of all new U.S. businesses, despite accounting for only 13 percent of the U.S. population in 2011. Notably, more than 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or children of immigrants. These American companies represent 7 of the 10 most valuable brands globally, collectively employ more than 10 million people and generate annual revenue of $4.2 trillion.
  • The Senate bill creates a new Startup or INVEST visa thathelps foreign entrepreneurs build their businesses in the U.S. by creating a temporary visa and a permanent green card option, as well the potential for permanent resident status for those entrepreneurs whose companies create jobs for American workers.

 

 

Commonsense immigration reform increases the productivity of workers and adds new protections for American workers. According to CBO and other independent studies, immigration reform will increase overall U.S. productivity, resulting in higher GDP and higher wages. The bipartisan Senate bill also provides a host of protections for American workers and ensures that new worksite enforcement and border security measures deter future illegal immigration.

  • CBO estimates that real wages will be 0.5 percent higher in 2033 — the equivalent to an additional $250 of income for the median American household — as a result of enacting the Senate bill.
  • The Senate bill raises the “wage floor” for all workers—particularly in industries where large numbers of easily exploited, low-wage, unauthorized immigrants currently work.
  • Studies of the 1986 immigration reform law found thatlegalizing immigrants saw wage increases of about 10 percent, due in part to increases in workers’ productivity that benefited the economy as a whole.

 

 

Commonsense immigration reform would reduce the federal deficit, balance out an aging population, and strengthen Social Security.  According to CBO, the additional taxes paid by new and legalizing immigrants would much more than offset the estimated costs of the bill– enacting the bill would actually improve the federal budget outlook in both the short- and long-term.  Additional immigration would help balance out an increase in retirees-per-worker as the baby boom generation retires, providing essential financial support for U.S. social insurance programs.

  • CBO found that the enacting the Senate immigration reform bill will reduce the federal budget deficit by nearly $850 billion over the next 20 years.
  • Based on CBO’s analysis of the bill’s budgetary and economic effects, enacting the Senate bill would reduce the federal debt as a share of the economy by three percentage points in 2023, relative to current law.
  • The independent SSA Actuary estimates that the Senate’s immigration reform bill will add nearly $300 billion to the Social Security Trust Fund over the next decade and would improve Social Security’s finances over the long run, extending Social Security solvency by two years.

 

 

Comprehensive immigration reform will contribute to our housing market recovery and strengthen the technology, agriculture, and tourism industries, among others. In addition to the benefits described above – increasing total economic growth, boosting worker productivity, increasing innovation, and strengthening our fiscal health – the bipartisan Senate bill would bring specific benefits to a range of economic sectors.

  • A recent study from the Americas Society/Council for the Americas and Partnership for a New American Economy found that the 40 million immigrants currently in the U.S. have created $3.7 trillion in housing wealth.
  • According to a USDA simulation of a similar policy, an expanded agriculture temporary-worker program, wouldincrease long-run agricultural output by between 0.2 percent and 2.0 percent, depending on the crop, and would increase agricultural exports by between 0.2 percent and 3.2 percent.
  • Travel and tourism comprise the largest service-export industry in the U.S., setting a record $165.6 billion in exports and supporting 7.8 million jobs in 2012, according to the International Trade Administration. The industries’ continued growth depends on America’s ability to compete with other countries for international tourists (particularly those from emerging economies), which the Senate bill aims to do through numerous provisions that will facilitate increased travel and tourism to the United States while simultaneously strengthening our national security.

More On Immigration: Cecilia Muñoz Director, Domestic Policy Council The White House

Hi, all!

 

This week, we got some big news about the immigration reform bill. It’s a little wonky, but it’s so great that I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

 

The nonpartisan experts who estimate the financial impact of legislation for Congress concluded that because undocumented immigrants will start paying more in taxes for things like education and Social Security, the immigration proposal in the Senate will make the economy fairer for middle class families while cutting the U.S. deficit by almost $1,000,000,000,000 over the next two decades.

 

With every passing day, it’s becoming clear that we can’t afford not to act. Now we know exactly how much is at stake, and it’s the kind of news that can help to change the policy conversation in Washington.

 

So we’ve put together a graphic that explains exactly how this works, and we need your help to share it. If more people get the facts, it’ll be easier to build a nationwide, bipartisan consensus to get this done.

 

 

Take a look, then share this graphic with folks you know:
