Pelosi: Merit-Based Immigration System Is ‘Condescending’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) rejected the White House’s immigration plan even before its roll-out on Thursday, complaining that the plan’s focus on a “merit-based” system was “condescending.”

“It is really a condescending word. They’re saying family is without merit?,” Pelosi said at her weekly press conference.

Sorry, but if all you bring to the American table is a hungry family, then they are without merit.

Democrats prefer immigrants who are penniless and needy, uneducated, unskilled, and who do not speak our language, because the opposite might not vote Democrat.

Immigrants who can earn their way through life, who made the effort to learn to speak English, they have a trade or skills that show they won’t become a burden to the American taxpayer, is what we should be looking for from immigrants.  They add to our society while Pelosi’s immigrants do nothing but take.

How does Pelosi’s choice of immigrants improve the nation?  What do paupers from third world countries offer to American citizens?  A merit-based immigration system means you bring people in who will add to the American ledger, not take from it.

The administration came out against chain migration where once someone is in the country they get to bring their entire family in.  That type of policy doesn’t take into consideration the economic needs of the country, especially when the whole family are unskilled and have no way to provide for themselves.

Americans are the most generous people in the world, but everyone has a limit.  The money we spend every year on illegal aliens and legal immigrants is staggering.  An immigration system should not be designed to help foreigners over American citizens.  Rather, the system should be designed to better the country.  merit-based systems help the country and the immigrants.  It’s a win-win.

“Are they saying most of the people who have ever come to the United States in the history of our country are without merit because they don’t have an engineering degree?” Pelosi asked.

Pelosi knows Trump is referring to the out of control immigration system we have, which puts immigrants before citizens in many ways.  Now that the economy is booming again, thanks to the policies of the Trump administration, we have more jobs than workers.  We need to bring more immigrants in to fill those jobs, but we want people with skills who speak the language because they would assimilate much quicker than unskilled third-world paupers who wouldn’t be able to work the jobs needed to be filled without the cost of bringing them up to speed starting from scratch.

If you need more doctors you don’t look to bring in more poor people from Honduras, but you do look at doctors from Honduras.  It’s not about who the people are, but whether or not they add to our society.

“Certainly we want to attract the best to our country, and that includes many people from many parts of society. So we’ll see what values are reflected there. We’ve only heard titles like merit, which is non-merit, it means merit in the eyes of Donald Trump.”

Does Pelosi think the hundreds of thousands of illegal border crossers are people of merit? The overwhelming majority of them are costing taxpayers serious money.  Americans do not owe a living to everyone who comes here, and a merit system would add to our country not harm it.

The White House plan drawn up by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, would create a “merit-based” system that would prioritize visas for migrants with certain job skills instead of just relatives of other immigrants, who usually turn out to be just as much of a burden.

From The Hill:

Pelosi said her caucus was open to discussing a White House plan if it “has certain principles,” though she added her members have not yet been briefed on the proposal.

“We have to, I believe, come to comprehensive immigration reform. I think the president knows that. I know that on the Republican side of the aisle there is a recognition that we have to have comprehensive immigration reform, but we have to do it in a way that secures our border, has a path to citizenship (all legal immigration has a path to citizenship), respects the value of family to us, that has certain principles that we would agree to,” she told reporters.

A senior administration official told The Hill Wednesday that Trump would use his plan to hammer Democrats in the 2020 election if they do not “engage” with the White House.

“It’s going to be a very detailed piece of legislation, and it can be what they want it to be,” the official said.  “If they don’t want to engage, then it will be part of the election. If they want to engage, then it could be part of a negotiation. That’s going to be up to them.”

A merit-based immigration system is a sane, rational way of taking into account the needs of the country when deciding who should come in.

42% of All Federal Crimes Committed By Illegal Aliens Which are Made up of 7% of the Population

Illegal Aliens make up just 7% of the population but a federal commission report finds that they commit 42% of all federal crimes. That is way way beyond their portion of the population in this country. Hispanics dominate the statistics, committing 54.3% of all federal crimes. Whites commit 21.2% and Blacks commit 20.6%. So much for the very good people just looking for a better life myth. Many do fit that category, but a large number are just criminals. The report came from the  2018 Annual Report and Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics. These numbers are astonishing and underline the need to vet those who want to come into our country. Imagine how low our federal crime rate would be if not for illegal aliens.

From The Conservative Tribune

“In fiscal year 2018, 54.3 percent of all offenders were Hispanic, 21.2 percent were White, 20.6 percent were Black, and 3.8 percent were of another race. Non-U.S. Citizens accounted for 42.7 percent of all federal offenders,” the government report said.

“Immigration cases accounted for the largest single group of offenses in fiscal year 2018, comprising 34.4 percent of all reported cases,” the government document continued.

Of course, a skeptic might point out that this by itself isn’t so surprising. Illegal immigration is a federal crime and widespread, so it makes sense that aliens — many of them Hispanic — receive a high number of federal sentences.

But the numbers show deeply disturbing trends.

It isn’t just that aliens are being prosecuted for immigration crimes. Actually, they are also committing many other crimes at an alarming rate.

“Cases involving drug possession, for example, were nearly evenly split between citizens and non-citizens with 361 and 339, respectively,” The American Mirror noted. But remember, non-citizens are only about 7 percent of the population.

MS-13 Punks, Not Deported By Obama and Released By Sanctuary City Charged With Brutal Murder

Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce, 16-years-old, and Joel Ernesto Escobar, 17-years-old, were charged with first-degree murder — along with 14-year-old Cynthia Hernandez-Nucamendi in the brutal murder of 14-year-old Ariana Funes-Diaz in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Both Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar came to the country illegally, but instead of deporting them, they were released into the country.

In 2018, the two were released back onto the streets after being charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, and attempted robbery in Prince George’s County, which refused to honor detainers on the pair. More blood on the hands of sanctuary liberals. But Democrats are not concerned with having blood on their hands, whether it be a baby that’s aborted or an American being butchered by MS-13.

From Breitbart News

According to police, the two illegal alien MS-13 gang members and Hernandez-Nucamendi met the 14-year-old victim at an apartment complex before taking her into a wooded area nearby. In the wooded area, police say the three beat the girl with a baseball bat and stabbed her to death with a machete.

Now, the pair of illegal alien MS-13 gang members and Hernandez-Nucamendi have been charged with murdering Funes-Diaz.

Last year, Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar were released from custody by Prince George’s County officials after being charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, and attempted robbery.

At the time, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency had requested that the two illegal alien gang members not be released back into the community and instead be turned over to their custody for deportation.

Prince George’s County, a sanctuary city, released the illegal aliens anyway, and they were never able to be arrested or deported by ICE.

Judge Orders Antifa Leader to Pay Judicial Watch $22,000

Yvette Felarca, the schoolteacher antifa hoodlum that was charged with assault back in 2016 as the result of a physical attack on a counter protester, has just been slapped with a charge of $22,000 to pay the legal fees of Judicial Watch after she filed a frivolous lawsuit against them. Felarca is also affiliated with By Any Means Necessary. (BAMN) Judicial Watch has asked for all communications the school had, along with Felarca’s personnel file. Felarca sued to prevent the transfer and the judge said her case held no water since she was saying that she had 1st Amendment rights but that Judicial Watch didn’t.

 

Judicial Watch reported:

Judicial Watch announced that a U.S. District Judge in California awarded Judicial Watch $22,000 in legal fees in a case filed by an Antifa organizer in an effort to block Judicial Watch from obtaining information about her activities.

Yvette Felarca, a middle school teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD), and two co-plaintiffs were ordered to pay Judicial Watch $22,000 in attorney’s fees and $4,000 in litigation costs. Felarca had sued the BUSD in federal court to keep the school district from fulfilling its legal obligation to provide Judicial Watch with records of their communications mentioning: Felarca, Antifa, and/or BAMN. Judicial Watch also asked for Felarca’s personnel file.

Felarca is a prominent figure in By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), a group founded by the Marxist Revolutionary Workers League that protests conservative speaking engagements. In 2016, Felarca and two of her allies were arrested and charged with several crimes, including felony assault, for inciting a riot in Sacramento. Earlier this year, Felarca was ordered to stand trial for assault.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria, Northern District of California, who had previously ruled that Felarca’s lawsuit was “entirely frivolous,” wrote in his ruling awarding legal fees to Judicial Watch that Felarca and her co-plaintiffs’ First Amendment claims were “premised on the obviously baseless assumption” that the First Amendment condemns the speech of some while condoning the ideological missions of others.

Judge Chhabria added that “The plaintiffs also mischaracterized the documents under review” and that the plaintiffs “failed to grapple with the role Ms. Felarca played in making herself a topic of public discourse through her physical conduct at public rallies and her voluntary appearance on Fox News.”
