I knew it! And, now we are seeing it in action!
Update January 8th: Ohio ‘peace and justice’ groups getting ready to break the law and hide aliens from Obama illegal alien raids, click here.
The recent Obama Administration order to round up illegal aliens (a tiny number!) and deport them is simply a ploy to fire up the No Borders movement, the Democrat base, in this all important election year.
Church World Service will be hiding illegal aliens!
Here is a story about the hard Left Church World Service, a federal refugee resettlement contractor, which uses $45 million of your dollars every year to change America by changing the people, is setting up hiding places throughout America where illegal aliens can be placed out of the reach of federal ICE agents.
There should be a law, if you break federal immigration law, you lose your federal funding (come on wimps in Congress!).
They want to resurrect the glory days (as they saw them) where churches broke the law and helped Central Americans get into America and then hid them until they could be spread out to towns across the US. It was called The Sanctuary Movement.***
It is so apparent that this deportation order is part of a Democrat strategy, most likely cooked up in the White House, because (have you noticed!) no one blasts Obama personally (as they would if this were George Bush or Donald Trump).
Here is the story (meme faithfully advanced by the Washington Post):
Religious groups and activists vowed Wednesday to offer refuge to illegal immigrants who are the targets of ongoing federal raids meant to combat a new wave of border-crossing from Central America.
The announcement recalled the sanctuary movement of the 1980s that provided safe haven to several thousand people fleeing civil wars in El Salvador and Guatemala, with churches in Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities sometimes filled with people seeking asylum in the United States.
At the start of the year, the Obama administration launched a large-scale effort targeting those who have already been ordered to leave the country. About 120 adults and children have been apprehended in raids in several states.
Central American illegal aliens are NOT refugees. They do not fit the long-understood definition that a refugee or asylum seeker must prove they would be persecuted if they returned to their home country.
Escaping poverty or run-of-the-mill crime is not persecution, but these NO Borders activists have been for years attempting to blur the definition. And, that is mostly because when someone is defined as a refugee all welfare goodies flow their way and they can then bring in the family they left behind. (Of course the WaPo isn’t going to explain any of that to its readers!).
The effort, which is expected to include several hundred more apprehensions, has drawn sharp criticism from those who advocate for undocumented immigrants. They argue that Central Americans who are entering the country illegally should be offered the same protections extended to Syrian refugees.
Know the enemy: Marielena Hincapié!
Instead, Central Americans are being processed for deportation rapidly, sometimes without legal representation, said Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the Los Angeles-based National Immigration Law Center.
“There is basically a hemispheric bias in our refugee system,” Hincapié said. “These families that are also fleeing violence — the same way as other refugees coming from around the world — are not being welcomed to our country. Instead, we are at risk of deporting them back to their persecutors, deporting them back to their death, deporting them back to rape and sexual assault.”
Noel Andersen, grass-roots coordinator with the Church World Service group for refugees, said his organization has been working to build a network of sanctuaries for the Central Americans being targeted by ICE.
Church World Service (you may know them as the Crop Walk group) is taking the law into its own hands, come on Congress! Cut off their funding! It is an outrage that you and I, American taxpayers, should be paying their salaries as they break the law! Let them get their funding from ol’ moneybags George Soros!
This is one more reason why Election 2016 is so important.
***For those who want to dig deeper, we did extensive research on the Sanctuary Movement at Refugee Resettlement Watch (here is just one of many posts).
And, by the way, Maryland’s premiere No Borders agitation group, CASA de Maryland, grew out of that movement when illegal Central Americans (Sandinistas!) were brought to Maryland by the ‘religious Left.’ Be sure to open that link above on CASA and see all the trouble the do-gooders had as the various church groups squabbled with each other and discovered that some of their lovely migrants weren’t so lovely after all.
