Monday, July 18, 2016: Jamiel Shaw Sr., father of Jamiel Shaw, who was killed by an illegal, speaks at Republican National Convention.
Democrats claim there is no agenda, but we all know that to be completely false. There is always an agenda and they will only talk about the issues they are in favor of, which was made abundantly clear last night at the Republican Nation Convention when CNN would turn off the camera every time one particular subject came up.
Here is how it went down…
CNN cut away from speakers who spoke out against illegal immigration at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on Monday night, turning instead to its daily stable of talking heads, and coming back for a conventional politician’s speech.
Mary Ann Mendoza, Sabine Durden, and Jamiel Shaw, who each lost a child through crimes committed by illegal aliens, spoke from the heart about why they supported Donald Trump’s proposal to enforce immigration law and build a border wall.
Shaw, who is black, told the tearful audience in Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena “You’d think Obama cared, and black lives mattered … Only Trump called me on the phone one day to see how I was doing … Trump will put America first.”
But CNN, which lately fought to rebuild its audience by including more conservative perspectives, filtered out those voices, returning to the speeches in time for Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), who gave a good but otherwise unremarkable address.
This is one they refused to show…
Clearly, CNN has an agenda and certainly did not want their democratic supporters to hear from the families of those who lost loved ones at the hands of violent illegal immigrants. If CNN let the camera roll while these people were speaking, well that would put Hillary Clinton as risk of losing votes and they can’t have that.
Facebook will benefit from illegal immigration
JULY 19, 2016
Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, and Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, have teamed up to launch a website targeting Donald Trump.
“Mark Zuckerberg-backed FWD.us is escalating its attacks on Donald Trump’s immigration policies as the candidate prepares to accept the Republican party’s presidential nomination in Cleveland,” Recode reported on Monday.
Bill Gates is also a founder of FWD.us.
The site will provide propaganda in favor of illegal immigration. Todd Schulte, of FWD.us president, told Recode Trump365 will serve as a “messaging hub” where supporters can download graphics to post on Twitter and Facebook as part of an effort to “amplify the message” and defeat Trump.
“Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly promised that if he is elected he will mass deport 11.3 million undocumented immigrants plus an additional 4.5 million children with U.S. citizenship,” the website claims.
The Trump campaign website does not advocate mass deportation. It does, however, call for deporting criminals.
“All criminal aliens must be returned to their home countries, a process which can be aided by canceling any visas to foreign countries which will not accept their own criminals, and making it a separate and additional crime to commit an offense while here illegally,” the site explains.
It should be noted that Zuckerberg’s support for “comprehensive immigration reform” has an upside for the tech industry. He supports S.744, legislation that would jack up the annual cap on H-1B nonimmigrant (temporary) guest workers from 65,000 to 180,000 and would eliminate the ceiling on green cards for foreign STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) workers. So-called guest workers are routinely paid less than their American counterparts.
“The obstacle to passing a stand-alone STEM bill is that the Democratic Party will only agree to vote for it if it is combined with blanket amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens,” notes the Federation for American Immigration Reform. “This is the real motivation guiding Mark Zuckerberg’s ‘selfless’ pursuit of comprehensive immigration reform.”
While everyone was freaking out about plagiarism in a couple of phrases of Melania Trump speech, no one noticed the quiet announcement of an ethics investigation that found HUD Secretary Julian Castro, touted as a leading contender for Hillary’s Vice President, had violated the Hatch Act. His violation? Using his office and official position to support a political candidate. But what about Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg who did the same thing a week earlier? The media ignores these ethics violations, Obama says he won’t punish Castro and Castro says “mistakes were made”. Haven’t we heard THAT before? Will anyone accuse Castro of plagiarism for his “excuse”? Will anyone point out the judiciary is in fact biased and refuses to recuse itself? No. Instead, there will be a firestorm of indignation when someone points out the unethical hypocrisy as there was when Trump complained of the “La Raza” judge who refused to recuse himself from the Trump University case.

CLEVELAND — Despite a series of crimes committed by illegal immigrants and public polls showing anger at three years of juvenile Latin Americans crossing the border, deportations have dropped to a 10-year low and under President Obama, the eviction of those convicted of criminals has plummeted 60 percent, according to new immigration statistics.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement statistics reported to Congress show that 230,000 illegal immigrants will be deported this year. That is slightly more than half of the 400,000 that were deported in 2012, and come after the country has been flooded with juvenile illegals, a situation continuing today.
In an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies, Policy DirectorJessica M. Vaughan said that the shocking numbers help to reinforce the anti-illegal immigration push here at the Republican National Convention.
The analysis also found that ICE has generally slowed down its work, especially removing illegal immigrants from inside the United States and not just on the border.
For example, while in past years more were deported from the interior of the United States, now the figures show that the biggest deportation numbers of those who simply try to sneak in are turned back.
ICE said that 72 percent of its deportations are of those that just crossed the border. “Interior deportations fell to 46,511 to date, according to the report, putting ICE on pace to complete 63,700 this year. This is approximately one-fourth the number of interior deportations completed by ICE in 2009, the first year of the Obama administration,” said Vaughan.

Plagiarism allegations overshadow Republican convention

She suggested that the figures are being manipulated to make it look like the president is deporting more immigrants.
“In previous administrations, border crossers did not make up a large share of deportations credited to ICE. The inclusion of hundreds of thousands of border cases in ICE deportation totals became the basis for deceptive Obama administration claims of ‘record deportations’ beginning in 2012, when in fact, deportations resulting from interior enforcement were dropping sharply,” she wrote.
What’s more, the deportation of illegals convicted of crimes as bad as murder and rape are way down. So far, 43,005 criminals aliens have been deported from inside the United States. That is a pace of about 59,000 deportations, a decline of more than 60 percent from 2011.
