We often complain about the GOP leadership in the House and Senate. We SHOULD be keeping a closer eye on the dunderheads in the states, who can do far more damage at that local level.
[NOTE: anyone wanting to challenge DeWine for the GOP nomination next time, send me a comment.]
This has been reported to be “just” a payback for those brave aliens who worked for the Americans, and now face persecution in their home countries. If these were the only aliens involved, most of us would say, well, OK.
That assertion is, however, a lie.
This action is to facilitate the State Dept. bringing in Yet Another Batch of Leftists (YABL, rhymes with rabble and babble), who will be – after a laughably short time – eligible for ALL benefits, including housing, welfare, EBT, as well as the very lucrative “family reunification” that brings in marginally-related and unrelated aliens, for a price.
Can you say Chain Migration?
It is such a process that enabled Ilhan to enter the USA, and to bring in her husband/brother, as well. Even Snopes cannot label that allegation as False, merely smearing it with the label Unproven. Snopes’ efforts to uncover the truth are laughably weak. Even a cursory look at the facts brings up some eyebrow-raising information.
Look, I’ve known many people from the Middle East over the years. In Lakewood, my hometown, and Cleveland, where I spent much of my adult life, I had Arabs as neighbors and friends. Some of them Christian, some of them Muslim (often only weak adherents). I liked them.
One thing I learned is not to trust the surface. Many of them were kind, genial, and seemingly decent persons.
However, shady business practices, including food stamp fraud, selling stolen or outdated merchandise, and rampant immigration fraud were the norm. Yes, NORM.
They didn’t see it as a crime, just helping out a family member or otherwise-allied person. They regularly engaged in marriage fraud. The Catholic ones would do so by coercing their teens to marry someone who couldn’t get a visa the normal way in a civil marriage. After they received their papers, the American was permitted to get a divorce, and marry the one they had wanted to all along. But, the first marriage was “for the family”.
The Muslims had no such concerns about divorce, and would engage in that practice to further their family’s finances and for political alliances.
So, unlike some bloggers, I’m not suggesting Ilhan and her brother or step-brother or half-brother (any of these are possible) engaged in some sort of incestuous relations. This was NOT about sex.
Understand, sex generally wasn’t involved. They would claim it was, for the INS, but this wasn’t about sex. It was about trading favors, paying off debts, getting some cash for investments, and the like.
Today’s immigrants will often have one or more children, just to solidify their claim on America. They are aware that Americans are reluctant to break up families, so having that connection makes them virtually deportation-proof.
