Our government leaders appear to have little interest in assimilating immigrants into our way of life. They are overwhelming the immigration system with illegals, in part, to prevent assimilation. It is much easier to fundamentally transform a nation of immigrants who are not assimilated and who are invited in for freebies.
Even better if they are criminals. The government recently released 600 illegal alien criminals into our country with only an appearance ticket.

Breitbart reported that there is a new amnesty law which was made public on Friday – any national from one of several countries exposed to Ebola will get immigration benefits.
The president, in keeping with his multiple violations of Immigration Law, has once again rewritten the law. It was completely unnecessary and is just another way to implement amnesty without assimilation.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services announced that immigrants from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone who are in the U.S. will now get immigration benefits. The ruling sets up chain migration. The benefits will be costly and are all courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer.
There is absolutely no legitimate reason to do this. By this standard, any immigrant with any illness could be given immigration benefits. There is no plan for assimilation.
- Change or extension of nonimmigrant status for an individual currently in the United States, even if the request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired;
- Extension of certain grants of parole made by USCIS;
- Expedited adjudication and approval, where possible, of requests for off-campus employment authorization for F-1 students experiencing severe economic hardship;
- Expedited processing of immigrant petitions for immediate relatives (currently in the United States) of U.S. citizens;
- Expedited adjudication of employment authorization applications, where appropriate; and
- Consideration for waiver of fees associated with USCIS benefit applications.
DACA was the most expansive of the president’s illegal amnesty orders and it has been lauded by leftists. NBC published a report celebrating DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and only lamented the fact that some illegals were afraid to take advantage of DACA for fear they would be deported anyway. DACA is in large part responsible for the recent surge on our very open borders.
Many in our Congress are urging Mr. Obama to legalize more illegals via DACA. In other words, Congress is cheering for Mr. Obama to break the law of the land.
Lt. Gov. Dewhurst said that the illegal children will cost Texas alone half a billion dollars. Do people really believe this is affordable?
Watch this segment about what is going on at the border:
Illegal immigrants are now demanding Arizona police stop following their law. Recently, local police stopped an illegal immigrant for making an illegal right turn. He was driving without a driver’s license and was arrested. As the officers tried to turn him over to ICE, they were swarmed by a nasty open borders crowd.
Two of the protesters crawled under the police vehicle to try and stop the turnover by the police to Border Patrol agents.
We should be opposed to this behavior. Why do we allow it?
Carlos Slim, the Mexican billionaire, is CEO of Carlos Slim Foundation, and he is waging a ferocious campaign to integrate the half a million DREAMers into the U.S. workforce. Affirmative Action will no doubt be integral to its success.
Slim wants to unleash their potential, not in his country, but ours, and at the expense of the U.S. worker. People should be outraged by a foreigner forcing its citizens on us. Allegedly, the push is to help them contribute to our economy but it’s also meant to determine our political and societal future. They also tend to send their money home.
The NY Times is pushing Mr. Obama to grant amnesty illegally to millions. The Times staff are fans of breaking the law to favor leftists. Anyone who disagrees is a nativist.
“It would be good to see Mr. Obama join other Democrats and Republicans in making the moral and legal case for compassionate action, to lead a backlash against the nativist backlash,” the Times recently wrote. “And while he’s at it, he can reaffirm his commitment to protecting, through executive action this year, millions of immigrants who have been here for years, who deserve the chance to legalize that Congress has refused them.”
No one mentions assimilation. They intend to indoctrinate the new Americans in leftist ideology by handing out free gifts such as welfare, food stamps, and preference in job hirings. Recently, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) sued an American company for discrimination for firing workers who could not speak English. The EEOC decided for the company that it was not important.
When some Republicans talk about assimilation being a necessary component of any immigration reform, it is always ignored because the point is to bring in foreigners who will not be assimilated. Leftists portray assimilation as an insidious process that robs immigrants of their history and self-esteem. They claim it’s racist to expect immigrants, even illegal immigrants, to become part of our society and our Republic as it stands.
Assimilation is moribund among our leaders.
Critical to assimilation is requiring immigrants to learn English. Our leftist leaders are not only abandoning that, they are doing their best to remove English as our national language.
In the past, assimilation meant that immigrants were expected to be self-sufficient, hardworking, and morally upright. None of that matters as we throw welfare at them and release criminals into the country.
Many of the illegal immigrants come from poor, rural backgrounds and cannot function well in our schools. They come out of them, oftentimes, angry and anti-establishment.
Welfare rolls are ticking up with immigrants, illegal and legal. Fifty percent of legal immigrants and fifty-seven percent of illegal immigrants accept some form of government assistance. It’s a troubling sign. Still, we are encouraging and promoting immigration of more of the people who will follow the same path.
Immigrants were expected to adopt our ideals. No longer. Leftists in this country are attempting to destroy our Constitution, impose totalitarian laws on us, and have little interest in the First, Second, Fourth and Tenth Amendments.
Immigrants are encouraged, thanks to diversity, to maintain their heritage and tack it onto their American identity so, we are not Americans, we are Italian-Americans, African-Americans, Irish-Americans, and so on.
We have put the new Americans from Mexico and Central America into the category of Latino or Hispanic. They didn’t put themselves there, we did.
It is not only people to the south of us or from Liberia and Sierra Leone, it’s from all countries. All immigrants, legal or otherwise are being given preferential treatment and not assimilated into our culture.
The Department of Justice under Eric Holder has ordered a Detroit-area school, Crestwood School District in Dearborn Heights, with a growing Arab population to translate every communication into Arabic, teach classes in Arabic, and hire more Arab educators.
It will allow meaningful participation by students with limited English proficiency according to the DOJ. It will also limit assimilation, a goal of this administration.
Public schools will eventually be foreign entities and students will not be taught loyalty to the United States.
All are being put into the same category as Black-Americans and Native-Americans and are being awarded Affirmative Action, promotions in school and careers based on their race, and so on. There will be no end to the people who will be given preference over citizens.
African-Americans have a special history in the country as do Native-Americans but the new Americans are not entitled to these same benefits though they are being given them just the same.
The new Americans aren’t coming here demanding the entitlements, jobs, and so on. They are being encouraged to do that when they get here.
Assimilation is not automatic or necessarily natural. Leftists, particularly in our government, are assuring it by overwhelming the system and manipulating the newcomers.
Instead of assimilation, we are seeing racialization. Opponents to assimilation say assimilation causes divisive minority groups and racialization because it produces competition among groups. That is a typical socialist philosophy – competition is bad and must be eliminated. In reality, the racialization appears to be coming in part from the left’s obsession with perceived racism and their misguided attempts to end it.
Immigration is heartily encouraged by the overwhelming number of Americans but what we are seeing is not immigration. We are seeing an invasion intended to fundamentally transform us.
