Chuck Schumer’s Nonsensical Response to Travel Ban
The progressives who own and operate the Democrat Party are upset by President Trump’s Executive Order banning people from traveling to the United States from countries that are considered breeding grounds for Islamic terrorists; a common sense approach to a problem in desperate need of a solution. Chuck Schumer and the George Soros-funded “protesters” have taken their traveling road show to airports across America to provide a nonsensical response to the travel ban. Schumer and the protesters are seeking to create the illusion that Americans favor open borders over national security because somehow it is the American way.
Schumer proclaims during a rally to protest the travel ban that President Trump’s Executive Orders are “bad for America, bad for humanity, bad for national security, and they are against everything that is American.” In typical Democrat fashion, Schumer does not explain his claims because any explanation would collapse under the weight of history and reason.
Schumer thinks open borders with no restrictions is the American way, but he is wrong. When you evaluate the validity of Schumer’s claims by inspecting The Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, and the writings of the founding fathers, you will not find a shred of evidence that open borders and unlimited immigration are the American way.
Progressives like Schumer continue to push the narrative that America has to accept anybody who wants to migrate to America, including terrorists because it is the American thing to do and has been since America’s founding. Schumer alludes to the statue of liberty as proof that every person around the globe has a right to migrate to America; absurd.
The founding fathers were opposed to unlimited immigration and applied a strict standard for people who sought entrance into the U.S. The following is from a letter from George Washington to John Adams dated November 15, 1794:
My opinion with respect to emigration is, that except of useful mechanic’s—and some particular descriptions of men—or professions—there is no need of extra encouragement: while the policy or advantage of its taking place in a body (I mean the settling of them in a body) may be much questioned; for by so doing they retain the language, habits & principles (good or bad) which they bring with them; whereas, by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, manners, and laws: in a word, soon become one people.
Washington understood that America’s immigration policy must be advantageous to America. Did you notice that Washington rejects multiculturalism for assimilation?
The rational approach to terrorism is secure borders and an immigration policy that includes an application process that applies thorough vetting, including scrutinizing applicants to determine their potential usefulness to America and Americans. 1 Corinthians 13:11 reads: “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” It is time for Schumer and those of his ilk to think and speak like adults, not children.
