As the country moves on from the tragic mass killings at a Florida school, increased attention is being given to killers in our country who are not from our country. Certainly America has its share of criminals, as does every country and culture. That makes the discussion of importing murder even more important.
The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has just published a report, MS-13 Resurgence: Immigration Enforcement Needed to Take Back Our Streets. MS-13 is credited for having committed 207 murders (that we know of) in California, Maryland, New York, Virginia, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Texas, New Jersey, Ohio and a dozen other states since 2012, with the number growing because of the influx of “unaccompanied children” from Central America during the Obama Administration.
Representative Zeldin’s statement on the issue should have immigration reform activists cheering:
From the vicious machete attack of four young men in Central Islip, to the childhood best friends brutally murdered by MS-13 in Brentwood, our community has witnessed the indiscriminate brutality of gang violence firsthand. Every level of government has a role to play in combating the rise of MS-13 and other gangs, and we must crack down on the aspects of our nation’s broken immigration system and other policies that have allowed MS-13 and other gangs to take hold in our communities and stay there. That is why I introduced this legislation to revoke the naturalization of those involved in gang activity prior to or within 10 years of becoming naturalized. United States naturalization is a privilege not a right, and those who have had this privilege bestowed upon them must respect and uphold the laws of our land.
Ann Coulter has also weighed in with a snarky piece about first and second generation immigrants committing more than 40 percent of all mass shootings since 2000. She provides a list of 16 perpetrators including Omar Mateen, the son of Afghan immigrants, who murdered 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016. She sums it up, thusly:
An immigration moratorium and widespread deportations would not only cut mass shootings in half, but it would also free up the FBI’s time to focus on these delusional young men with the terrifying stare, who hear voices no one else hears.
The federal government is moving in the right direction on immigration enforcement, much to the chagrin of the open borders crowd, which is always a good sign.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
