2020 Election and the Radical Left on Immigration

President Donald Trump has done more to enforce our immigration laws and promote sensible legal immigration policies than any other President in the last 75 years.  NC LISTEN has only minor disagreements with a few of President Trump’s immigration policies.

Sadly, the Democratic Party on the issue of immigration has become so radicalized, it has turned against the citizenry of the United States and our Constitution (see below).  Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden and the national Democratic Party leadership, especially the Democratic leadership in the US House and US Senate and to include our NC Governor Roy Cooper, have chosen on purpose to take actions on immigration policies and statutes that hurt their own citizens, especially hurting minority citizens.  In North Carolina, Governor Roy Cooper has behaved more in line with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as it relates to protecting illegal immigrant criminals, sanctuary cities, and allowing non-citizens to vote.

Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden and the Democratic leadership have promised the following policies and actions if they win elections in November:

Democrats have promised open borders…….over 100 million foreigners, 33 million within driving distance of our southern border, have said they want to immigrate to the USA.  Such irresponsible open border policies would literally destroy our nation.  Social services would be overwhelmed. Limited English proficient students (includes ESL) already cost taxpayers twice as much as the average cost for K-12 students.  Our health care system would unravel and costs would skyrocket.  And who is going to pay for all of this?  An uncontrolled and massive population surge is sheer lunacy, since in great economic years the USA only creates 2.4 million jobs, and open borders will cause the most negative impact on the wages of our working poor citizens. 

2020 Immigration Legislation Must Have These Measures – take action Part 2

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Critically Important
Part 2 is contacting your US House member from NC and take action……..

We must continue to press members of Congress to fully fund a wall/barriers on our southern border AND more immigration enforcement noted below.

Contact your US House member from North Carolina.

What to email (copy and paste)…..or say if you make a phone call:

Tell your US House member from North Carolina:
Immigration legislation must include the following measures:
· MUST FULLY FUND the southern border barriers/wall and end asylum loopholes
· MUST MANDATE E-Verify to deny jobs to illegal immigrants
· MUST End all Chain Migration of extended family
· MUST REDUCE current legal immigration of one million per year by a minimum of 50% (preferably no more than 250,000 per year) and make it more skill-based. Mass immigration today is hurting American workers, especially our low-skilled.
· MUST END the Visa Lottery and drastically reduce H-1B and H-2B work visas
· MUST STOP sanctuary cities
Citizens demand the above measures, NOT another amnesty for illegal immigrants.

President Trump’s 10 Point Plan On Immigration

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Below is President Donald Trump’s 10 Point Original Plan On Immigration To Put America First.  President Trump has made a lot of progress in his first term, but the Democratic leadership has tried to stop our President at every turn to enforce our immigration laws.

1. Begin working on an impenetrable physical wall on the southern border.
2. End catch-and-release.
3. Move criminal aliens out of the USA in joint operations with local, state, and federal law enforcement. We will terminate the Obama administration’s deadly, non-enforcement policies that allow thousands of criminal aliens to freely roam our streets.
4. End sanctuary cities.
5. All immigration laws will be enforced – we will triple the number of ICE agents. Anyone who enters the U.S. illegally is subject to deportation. That is what it means to have laws and to have a country.
6. Suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening cannot occur, until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put into place.
7. Ensure that other countries take their people back when we order them deported.
8. Ensure that a biometric entry-exit visa tracking system is fully implemented at all land, air, and sea ports.
9. Turn off the jobs and benefits magnet. Many immigrants come to the U.S. illegally in search of jobs, even though federal law prohibits the employment of illegal immigrants.
10. Reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, keeping immigration levels within historic norms.

Trump and U.S. Supreme Court Justices And Why It Matters

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has incredible powers, although many see it as just one of the three branches of our federal government. With the wrong Justices, the SCOTUS can literally rewrite our U.S. Constitution and take rights and protections away from citizens. The President of the USA elected in November, 2020 will likely have the opportunity to nominate one or more Justices to the SCOTUS, and this will affect our Supreme Court for the next three decades. With additional very liberal Justices, given what is going on today, our nation will become unrecognizable and may never recover.

We watched the SCOTUS vote in a court case to require every citizen to purchase health care (nowhere in the U.S. Constitution), Obamacare, and then the SCOTUS proceeded in another court case to redefine a word, marriage, that had been understood without question since 1300. There are other concerns such as will a Jurist to the SCOTUS honestly interpret the law and be a strict constructionist or attempt to rewrite our Constitution.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (nominated to the Supreme Court by Bill Clinton in 1993) has said we should use the laws of other nations to determine U.S. law. Also, Sharia law is creeping into our lower court system. Justice Elena Kagan (nominated to the Supreme Court by Barack Obama) has made similar comments as Ginsburg about international law having weight when interpreting our Constitution. The U.S. President also nominates numerous federal judges in lower courts.

If Joe Biden were to be elected President, he will likely have the opportunity to nominate one or more Justices to the SCOTUS, but he really only has to nominate one in order to change the balance of the current SCOTUS. A very liberal SCOTUS can change and even overrule actions by the U.S. Congress. A “President Joe” giving an unlawful amnesty with permission by a very liberal SCOTUS to 15+ million mostly poor and low-skilled illegal immigrants and allowing them to vote and bring all of their relatives to the USA…….they will vote for more government spending and more benefits and ever more immigration. Joe Biden has been caught saying he actually favors open borders.

If Donald Trump were to be elected to a second term as President, he has promised to nominate only strict constructionists to the SCOTUS and has given a list of candidates to prove his point. He has promised to enforce our immigration laws.

Should one be more concerned with which candidate for President will nominate the next U.S. Supreme Court Justices, or should one be more concerned with which Presidential candidate has the nicest “tone”?
