Stop the Migrant Invasion

Americans don’t have to surrender their country to the millions wading across the Rio Grande and crashing fences to get in.

In Europe, ordinary people are fighting to save their continent and their standard of living from the impact of mass migration. Americans need to watch these Europeans and be encouraged. Resisting the cost of housing, feeding and educating migrants doesn’t make you a racist or bigot.

There is a global movement of people who want the richer life they’ve heard about in the U.S. and Europe. They’re forcing their way in, immigration laws be damned.

Most of these migrants are not destitute. According to the Center for Global Development, they have above-average incomes in their home country and are moving to gain more.

Migration is the hot-button issue in the European Parliament election on June 6-9.

The European Union — a 27-country compact headquartered in Brussels — insists that every member country is obliged to take in migrants or pay other member countries to do it for them.

Not so fast, say populist politicians in the Netherlands, Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk refuses, saying Poland “will not have to accept any migrants … and the European Union will not impose any migrant quotas on us.”

On May 15, after months of politicking, the Netherlands assembled a coalition government that promises to oppose migration and install “the strictest-ever asylum regime.” That sets up a clash with Brussels. The Dutch government will seek to opt out of the EU’s migration quotas.

Dutch activist Eva Vlaardingerbroek bashes the “corrupt elite” in Brussels that “invites the invasion in and makes the native population pay for it.” Just like the Biden administration makes New Yorkers and Chicagoans pay.

Hungary is also expected to opt out, though Brussels has indicated it will resist. “Hungary will never give in to the mass migration frenzy,” vows Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Fifteen EU member countries — more than half the union — petitioned Brussels last week to keep asylum seekers out of Europe until their claims are heard and verified. The petitioners, led by Denmark, propose detaining migrants offshore in non-EU countries. Currently, fewer than half of asylum seekers win their case, but losers stay in Europe anyway, evading the law. They can’t demonstrate a legitimate fear of persecution based on their race, religion or political beliefs. Some call them fakugees.

Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni cut a deal to house asylum seekers in Albania at Italy’s expense while claims are heard. The 15 petitioning countries suggest Meloni’s policy — call it “Remain in Albania” — should be a model across the EU. Sounds a lot like Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy.

Increasingly, Europeans are asking why they should hand over their continent to whoever manages to get in.

Similarly, United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is vowing to “stop the boats” carrying asylum seekers across the English Channel. He insists the British public has the right to determine “who crosses our borders.” Parliament passed a harsh deterrent, allowing the government to detain and deport asylum seekers to Rwanda, where their claims will be processed. Even those who win asylum will have to remain in Rwanda — not exactly paradise — eliminating any incentive to sneak across the channel.

Humanitarian groups are protesting, but on Monday, Austria endorsed the harsh U.K. approach.

On this side of the pond, 77% of Americans regard illegal immigration as a either a “crisis” (45%) or a “major problem” (32%), according to Pew Research Center.

Over two-thirds of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of immigration, according to an Associated Press poll. Black leaders are angry that resources are being diverted from their community to migrants.

The Biden administration has dishonestly portrayed the southern border crisis as unavoidable. Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said last week that it’s important to “contextualize it,” as “the world is seeing the greatest level of displacement since at least World War II.”

Forget the sob stories. Most migrants come for economic gain, jumping in front of legal immigrants and defying a nation’s right to control who enters.

The Left insists migration is a humanitarian crisis. Wrong. It’s a lawless invasion. Europeans are fighting back. Americans should, too.

Most Americans are sleeping zombies…never learn from past mistakes voting for communists. Their eyes and ears glued to 1984-style propaganda of the Lame Street media. Wake up America!!! It’s a deliberate self-inflicted invasion through our borders. It’s a Marxist/Communist/Globalist takeover… that’s why you see the left’s use of our Constitution as toilet paper. Brainwashed americans.

Although it looks nice that some European countries have now recognized the migrant problem and are taking action, it may be too little, too late. The problem has been going for 50+ years, basically the Muslims have replaced the Jews in Europe. The damage has been done and there may be no good solution. As for the USA, the migrant problem has been up and down until the Biden administration opened up the flood gates and we are seeing the same problem. Most of the eyes have been on the southern border but the northern border has been wide open and migrant infiltration has remained secretive as to the true numbers that have come through the northern border — Michigan and Minnesota with Muslim enclaves being refuge for infiltrators. Right now, the administration will continue to ignore the problem while the Czarist gets a new pedicure or outfit.

Corrupt politics are the reason for allowing open borders, not humanitarian reasons.

Hey, just because we have allowed a great many of our CITIZEN seniors to have to chose between buying their medications or eating, well to the Dems it seems that is no reason whatsoever to staunch the malignant hoards streaming across our borders and providing them with MUCH better benefits than our own elders are allowed.
When is it time to go Mr. and Mrs. Mussolini on the current power structure?

I have been seeing signage ONLY in Arabic in Houston. So, the rest of us cannot know what it says. Is that a good development? No. Concern is that this will proliferate- signs only in Chinese too? Somehow, I see it as a security/ safety issue. English is the language of our nation- it is a societal glue of sorts.

The Dem party loves signing onto European progressive agendas because their goals are the same: Replace the existing order with a command economy and socialist model. They especially like the political cover it provides when Euro-leftist policies fail — “It’s not OUR fault, this was forced on us.”
I’d like to say that if you vote Dem you’ll get what you deserve. The problem with that is, then we clear-thinking folk suffer and get stuck with the bill. Lefty’s: If you’re so keen on going the way of the lemming, go right ahead. Just don’t expect us to go over the cliff with you. Think Fleetwood Mac: “Go your own way!”

You betcha, Betsy. It’s way past time to call a halt to the illegal invasion at our southern border. Some states are enacting their own laws regarding this illegal intrusion across their state lines, something they should not have had to do, except for the stupidity of these idiots who call themselves president and vice president, and likewise the idiot named Myorkas (Did I spell his name right?). Oh, never mind, a fool by any other name is still a fool. Let’s not forget the legions of little children (Democrats) who are following these Pied Pipers. Let’s hope the states mentioned above work together along with our own legions of conservatives to thwart the attempts by Biden’ Legions to invalidate these states’ laws.

Millions upon millions of people are simply “country shopping” for where they can get the most largess from taxpayers!

Prior to this invasion, the US already let in too many who came in ready to change what they don’t like about our country. And that would be our history, our culture, our laws and traditions. Too many who will never adapt to our language and reside in their old ways of their countries. And look at us now! Into millions. I’ve said before many times that Muslims should have never been allowed entry. They are one group who will never bend towards this country. Look at Minnesota, Michigan. I say that the UA is in trouble. We need deportation for those here illegally. We do not owe them one US taxpayer cent!

Illegal Aliens coming to a town near you. Seeing them everywhere. About the only place they haven’t invaded in large numbers are the coldest regions of our country. You had better be prepared to repel them. November 5th can not come soon enough. Now Biden is making noises that he is going to “close the border.” What a joke. He is only going to lamely restrict the number of aliens to a daily quota. This is B.S. designed to garner votes. Don’t be fooled

Our border is a joke! We send the National Guard, and they are over run. They don’t have rifles with fixed bayonets. Border agents are trying to prevent illegals from climbing in and they are being shot at and they don’t fire back. We do nothing to protect the USA, and we are the joke of the world today with Biden in charge.

I send E-Mails to my “Representatives” NOT! weekly asking them to STOPPPP give ILLEGAL ALIENS — FREE Phones — Free HEALTH CARE — Free LODGING — ETC ETC ETC. IF THIS WAS ALL STOPPED — THEY (ILLEGAL ALIENS) would STOP COMING!!! Then take all that are here ILLEGALLY and give them a one-way trip to the southern most tip of SOUTH AMERICA. Congress is just as GUILTY as Biden for allowing this fiasco to continue. And before you say — Well the Republicans / RINO’S don’t have a majority in the Senate —- WHEN THE DID THEY DID’T DO ANYTHING WORTHWHILE!!!

America should not accept any migrants from the Middle East. We have a lot of muslims in northern states already and they do not like our constitution. We should not include “freedom of religion” to those that practice religions that believe in a god that rewards those that kill muslims. What kind of person could kill a child/baby or throw it in a fire alive? We cannot risk our country to those that want to turn it into a muslim nation. American is being invaded and we should worry for our children and grandchildren. Stop this madness. It started long ago and the proof is that a muslim was elected president in 2008. Wake up people! Stand up for our Constitution.

European countries have the EU wrecking ball. We have the LEFT wrecking ball. No doubts here both are fostered by the same global elites seeking to destroy national identities for easier control.
