Is It “Our Right” as a Sovereign Nation to Choose Who Gets to Live Here? You’re Darned Skippy That It is. (A KJ Analysis)

IllegalImmigrants

On Wednesday Evening, Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump gave a speech on Illegal Immigration, in which he said that

“We have to listen to the concerns that working people have over the record pace of immigration and its impact on their jobs, wages, housing, schools, tax bills, and living conditions. These are valid concerns, expressed by decent and patriotic citizens from all backgrounds.

“We also have to be honest about the fact that not everyone who seeks to join our country will be able to successfully assimilate. It is our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish here.” – Donald J. Trump, August 31, 2016

Gosh. A Sovereign Nation who gets to decide who enters their borders. What a novel idea.

Who would have thought of that?

Well…can you say “Founding Fathers”, boys and girls?”

I knew that you could.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other – John Adams

Isn’t breaking and entering into a Sovereign Nation an “immoral act”?

And, how can we be a “nation” if everyone speaks a different language and remains loyal to the country that they came from?

I’m just sayin’.

What about other Presidents? How did they feel about “multi-culturalism”and it’s role in immigration?

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” – Theodore Roosevelt, 1907

It’s not just the “Undocumented immigrants” crossing over our Sothern Border that is an intolerable situation. It’s also the fact that the Obama Administration has already “relocated 10,000 Syrians with largely undocumented backgrounds into our Sovereign Nation.

Remember when Trump said that he was going to “suspend immigration” until we can figure out a way to better “vet” these Islamic immigrants?

NOTE: I am not stereotyping. The fact is that these “immigrants” that Obama has brought into the country ARE Muslims. He has not allowed any Christians to come.

Suspending immigration is not a new concept.

It’s been done before…for over 40 years.

During the Harding administration, a stop-gap immigration measure was passed by Congress in 1921 for the purpose of slowing the flood of immigrants entering the United States.

A more thorough law was signed by President Coolidge in May 1924. It provided for the following:

The quota for immigrants entering the U.S. was set at two percent of the total of any given nation`s residents in the U.S. as reported in the 1890 census;
after July 1, 1927, the two percent rule was to be replaced by an overall cap of 150,000 immigrants annually and quotas determined by “national origins” as revealed in the 1920 census.

College students, professors and ministers were exempted from the quotas. Initially immigration from the other Americas was allowed, but measures were quickly developed to deny legal entry to Mexican laborers.

The clear aim of this law was to restrict the entry of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe, while welcoming relatively large numbers of newcomers from Britain, Ireland, and Northern Europe.

The 1921 law had used the 1910 census to determine the base for the quotas; by changing to the 1890 census when fewer Italians or Bulgarians lived in the U.S., more of the “dangerous` and “different” elements were kept out. This legislation reflected discriminatory sentiments that had surfaced earlier during the Red Scare of 1919-20.

A provision in the 1924 law barred entry to those ineligible for citizenship — effectively ending the immigration of all Asians into the United States and undermining the earlier “Gentlemen`s Agreement” with Japan. Efforts by Secretary of State Hughes to change this provision were not successful and actually inflamed the passions of the anti-Japanese press, which was especially strong on the West Coast.

Heated protests were issued by the Japanese government and a citizen committed seppuku outside the American embassy in Tokyo. May 26, the effective date of the legislation, was declared a day of national humiliation in Japan, adding another in a growing list of grievances against the U.S.

(The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 upheld the national origins quota system established by the Immigration Act of 1924, reinforcing these quotas.)

In 1965, the Hart-Cellar Act abolished the national origins quota system that had structured America`s immigration policy since the 1920`s, replacing it with a preference system that emphasized immigrants` skills and family relationships with citizens or residents of the United States.

Additionally, in April of 1980, during the Iranian Hostage Crisis, President Jimmy Carter cancelled all visas issued to Iranians for entry into the United States and warned that they would be revalidated only for “compelling and proven humanitarian reasons or where the national interest requires.”

If you were watching Saturday morning cartoons in 1977, during President Carter’s time in the White House, on ABC, you would have seen a Schoolhouse Rock musical cartoon titled The Great American Melting Pot.  It extolled the unique greatness of  our American Heritage.
For a while now, that heritage has been under attack.
The Immigration Act of 1924 was passed because America had experienced an overwhelming flood of immigrants, which strained the resources of our nation.
This act allowed all of these immigrants to be assimilated into American Society and to actually become Americans, in thought, word, deed, and LOYALTY.
An Liberal President Jimmy Carter stopped Iranians from immigrating, because, just like the situation we faced today with Radical Islam, we were AT WAR.
Today, our country is at war on two fronts: We are at war against the Drug Cartels and those who would enter our country illegally to work, and those who are “escaping” a war-ravaged land, or so they claim.
This new batch of “immigrants are unvetted and unwilling to assimilate into American Culture. Their loyalties remain with the country whose conditions were so horrible that they left.
The reason that Obama and his Administration are so “concerned” with Donald J. Trump’s immigration proposals is that they are full of common sense, utilized in defense of our sovereignty.
And, Obama and most Modern American Liberals, from Hillary Clinton to Colin Kaepernick, want to “radically change” this Sovereign Nation that God, through our Founding Fathers, bequeathed to us, into a Modern-day Tower of Babel, for their own ungrateful benefit.
Until He Comes,
KJ
