The Spirit of American Immigration and Border Policy

The New Collosus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Emma Lazarus-1883

Word is that the DOJ is finalizing the paperwork to have the Statue of "Illegal Immigration" deported back to where she came from.  Luckily, ICE has already separated her from her children (who are being detained inside of a previously bankrupt casino in Atlantic City.)

Yeah, and my grand parents of Austrian descent passed through Ellis island. They were vetted for health, background checks, ideological compliance with American values, not fucking Communists, and they expected no welfare, food stamps, or entitlement, and they worked their  asses off proud to be American not waving the flag of their country telling everyone that America owed them something! And that's the way it should be instead of the Democrats showboating their bullshit lies about actually giving a shit about illegal immigrant children that they encouraged to come to the borders with their amnesty game when all they're trying to do is build a voter's base made of victims too uneducated to comprehend what American exceptionalism is all about! Yeah, the new illegal immigrant who thinks they are entitled to everything while respecting nothing! The very blossom of Democrat treachery!

I don’t know about your experience, but my experience with Latin American immigrants is that they work their asses off. And it isn’t just liberals condemning this policy of taking kids from their families. The last critic of that policy I read about was Franklin Graham. Only shills are defending this. At least you’re in good company.

Doc, please don't confuse the actions of stealth Republicans (aka most Democrats) with true Progressives.  We actually DO support the things listed below:

Learned today (wikilectual) that

Maquiladora preceded NAFTA by 30 years; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maquiladora.
'Swift Boats on the Rio Grande' potentially would be a good fictional title---wait---or would the scripting be 'new journalism'. Sad not to see UNICEF with a border presence: water water good clean water . . . 95 F in Laredo today . . . . How'd the question 'what's in it for me?' become the de facto knee-jerk determinate for humanitarian compassion and frankly, 'adult behavior'.

APRIL 6, 2018
MEMORANDUM FOR FEDERAL PROSECUTORS ALONG THE SOUTHWEST BORDER
FROM: THE ATTORNEY GENERA(W -----:, ,
~#118"
SUBJECT: Zero-Tolerance for Offenses Under 8 U.S.C. § 1325(a)
On April 11, 2017, I issued a memorandum to all federal prosecutors entitled "Renewed
Commitment to Criminal Immigration Enforcement," in which I directed the prioritization of the
prosecution of certain criminal immigration offenses. I further directed each United States
Attorney's Office along the Southwest Border to work with the Department ofHomeland Security
to develop guidelines for prosecuting offenses under 8 U.S.C. § 1325(a).
Those seeking to further an illegal goal constantly alter their tactics to take advantage of
weak points. That means we must effectively respond with smart changes also. The recent increase
in aliens illegally crossing our Southwest Border requires an updated approach. Past prosecution
initiatives in certain districts-such as Operation Streamline-led to a decrease in illegal activities
in those districts. We must continue to execute effective policies to meet new challenges.
Accordingly, I direct each United States Attorney's Office along the Southwest Border-
to the extent practicable, and in consultation with DHS- to adopt immediately a zero-tolerance
policy for all offenses referred for prosecution under section 1325(a). This zero-tolerance policy
shall supersede any existing policies. If adopting such a policy requires additional resources, each
office shall identify and request such additional resources.
You are on the front lines of this battle. I respect you and your team. Your dedication and
insight into border reality is invaluable. Keep us informed, and don't hesitate to give us suggestions
for improvement. Remember, our goal is not simply more cases. It is to end the illegality in our
immigration system.
This guidance is not intended to, does not, and may not be relied upon to create, any right
or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United
States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
