Multiculturalists are fond of saying, “We’re a nation of immigrants” when the United States is actually, as is any healthy country, a nation of citizens. But if current trends continue, we may end up being a land of immigrants and not really a nation.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on August 16, presidential candidate Donald Trump said that if he were elected president, he would reverse President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and deport all illegal aliens from the United States.
Officials in Huntington Park, California, a city of 58,000 people in Los Angeles County, announced on August 3 that they would appoint two illegal aliens as commissioners on city advisory boards.
California Governor Jerry Brown, succumbing to the forces of political correctness, signed a bill into law on August 10 that bans the word “alien” from the Golden State’s labor laws. The measure, SB 432, notes that “Existing law defines ‘alien’ as any person who is not a born or fully naturalized citizen of the United States.”
The Obama administration has extended amnesty from deportation to 664,607 illegal aliens by means of executive orders. This has been done through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program, which began in 2012.
