No Sanctuary for Us
Chiquita Bakes a Spinach and Egg Casserole
Chiquita is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, August 13, 2017. Our noisy friend, Chiquita Cicada, is at the breakfast table this morning. She is puzzled by the number of jurisdictions that have turned their collective backs on the federal government and the rule of law. In her world there are consequences for ignoring the laws. The same should be true of the human world. Please join Chiquita and me this morning for breakfast. Chiquita has prepared a wonderful breakfast casserole for our enjoyment. I have prepared a batch of Irish coffees to up the fun. We hope to see you soon. The lights are on and the door is open.
Unsafe for Americans
Thanks so much for joining us this morning. In the bug kingdom we have a sense of order. We know right from wrong, we are taught to obey the law and we strive to live a peaceful life in a world that can be dangerous. My human friends are on the same page, but there are others who march to a different tune. Sanctuary cities are a prime example of purposeful chaos and danger. America is, indeed, a nation of immigrants, but it is also a nation of laws. People from all over the world come here all the time seeking a better way of life. We welcome them with open arms, but we ask that they follow the law in order to gain admittance to our nation. Our citizens deserve that kind of protection. We need to know who wants to come here, and why they are choosing to leave their native countries behind. There is a process to all of this. It takes patience and money, but in the end it is a system that works. Open borders are a prescription for chaos. In this day and age, not knowing who is entering our country is Russian roulette.
Out of Control
A Problem of Our Own Making
President Trump has decided to tackle the problem of immigration. Presidents who came before him turned their backs on the borders, and in doing so, turned their back on America. Just ask residents living in Suffolk and Nassau counties, Long Island how they feel about the presence of MS-13 in their home towns. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI)and chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee has stated that the Obama administration knowingly admitted MS-13 members into the country and saw to it that they were processed and placed into communities. This last fact bears repeating. Customs and Border Prevention apprehended the teenagers, knew they were gang members and despite this information released them into our communities. The Dems would tell us that it was compassionate to allow them sanctuary in our nation. Their victims would tell us that their lives have been turned upside down by this insane practice.
Its Not Just Mexico
Dangerous people are slipping into this country from Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti and Honduras. Some of them may want to be American citizens in good standing, but many want nothing but trouble. We have a system in place dealing with immigration that works if it is allowed to. When the rules are thrown away, danger ensues. Sanctuary cities make sure this kind of trouble has a safe harbor. Does the left really want amnesty for murderers and rapists? By insisting that cities have the right to offer sanctuary in violation of federal law, they are giving tacit approval to those who come here to harm us and to those in charge who are allowing this to happen.
Short Path to Citizenship
Twenty one U.S. cities have pledged to make 1 million illegal immigrants into American citizens by 2017. Some of these cities are sanctuary cities, the others are just breaking the law. The goal of this endeavor is to prevent illegal immigrants from deportation under the Trump administration. We finally have a president brave enough to tackle this growing problem, and he is being challenged by liberal and progressive groups who want to derail his efforts. Their campaign is called "Naturalize NOW". Clearly, breaking the law is now in vogue. I wonder how all those who entered our country legally feel about this project. If I were one of them, I would be livid. President Trump's plan to withhold federal funding from those cities who disobey the law is a good one. It won't solve the problem, but it is a beginning. What we need now is a middle and an end.
I'm Chiquita Cicada and I'm here to say
Progressives and liberals should just go away!
