Liberal Study Unintentionally Reveals Nationwide Illegal Alien Crime Spree
A report issued by the liberal Migration Policy Institute (MPI) further shreds Chuck Todd’s assertion on NBC’s “Meet The Press” last Sunday that he and his staff, “couldn’t find a single study that links violent crime and immigration.”
Tucked inside a report about President Obama’s new amnesty is the estimation from this liberal think tank there are 820,000 illegal aliens in the United States with criminal convictions, including 690,000 illegal aliens currently residing on U.S. soil who have been convicted of a felony or “serious” misdemeanor.
The 820,000 figure that's "buried deep inside the report" is out of a total of 11,000,000 unauthorized immigrants.
Meaning that only 7% of illegal immigrants are "convicted criminals" ...but we don't know what their crimes are. Petty things like using a stolen social security number to get a job counts as a felony.
Hardly a "crime wave".
And according to this libertarian source
, roughly the same percentage of Americans, native-born non-Blacks, are also convicted felons. (Blacks, of course, have a higher crime rate partly because of lack of opportunity, and partly because they're just more likely to get arrested for the same crime
Breitbart is the poster child for sloppy journalism.
I consider myself an Independent who wants politicians to follow the Constitution and Federal Law...
But notice I said Constitution and Federal Law.
Since the Constitution says nothing about gay rights, gay marriage, non discrimination ordinances, labor unions, etc. then these issues are up to states and local cities.
See, this is why it's obvious you guys are paid trolls (if not the same person). You, Southbeach, Aaron...
And "TomSOCAL" plays "good cop" while "SouthBeach" and "AaronH20" play "bad cop"
First you give us the usual right-wing talking points about the constitution, and how the constitution supposedly upholds "smaller government" and "greater states rights".
(It doesn't. The Constitution merely provides the framework for how laws are passed, enforced, and challenged. And it specifically mentions things that government cannot do; it does NOT
say that anything unmentioned is off limits to the federal government. It only says that the states are free to do anything not barred to them by the federal government.).
And this is a trick that you guys on the right (sorry, "independents") employ to try and make LGBT people -a loyal Democratic-voting bloc- less loyal to the Democratic Party. Because, that's really the reason you guys come here and post all this shit.
Oh, it's all about state's rights then! Oh, whew! Alabama can discriminate against LGBT (and Massachusetts has the right to be LGBT-friendly), and everyone can be happy!
Do you see the baloney?
Further, you contradict yourself here:
However, Obama is a failure since after 8 years he hasn't added "Sexual Orientation" to the discrimination list for housing. We've got every other class protected on that list.
But the Constitution doesn't mention LGBT.
According to you.
(Let alone that the Supreme Court, in its Obergefell v. Hodges
decision, ruled that the 14th amendment applies to LGBT people, at least with regards to marriage).
But according to you
, the federal constitution doesn't mention LGBT.
So then, the federal government -according to your logic- doesn't have the right to enforce LGBT housing fairness in California.
So, how exactly is this Obama's failure? What happened to the constitution and state's rights?
I'll tell you what happened...you're trying to have your cake and eat it too.
You want LGBT RJ members to turn against Obama, for -supposedly- refusing to add LGBT people to this "list" (that you fail to name so that we can look it up) of protected classes for housing.
But you also want LGBT RJ members to believe that when Obama (or the Supreme Court) does
do something to protect LGBT from discriminiation, that it violates the constitution; so that maybe Republicans aren't such bad guys about all this after all.
So which one is it? You can't go with both of these narratives because they contradict each other.
See, this is how you play "good cop". You try attacking Obama from a supposedly liberal perspective. But you do such a bad job at it.
Of course, your accusation that the Obama administration isn't doing anything to help LGBT people with regards to housing discrimination is pure bullshit. The White House has itself has published several memos discussing its efforts on the issue (examples 1 2
But, as a [supposedly] constitutionally-conscious "independent" citizen like yourself should know: the president is only one branch of government, and there's only so much he can do when Republicans hold Congress.
But carry on with your self-contradicting and incoherent bullshit, SouthBeach...errr...I meant TomSOCAL.
