The Open Border Activists Behind the Illegal Immigrant Caravans
You may have heard about the caravan of immigrants from Central America making its way through Mexico in the hopes of illegally crossing the border into the United States. The group of perhaps 4,000 to 7,000 people has made its intentions clear: entering the U.S., even if it means violating American immigration laws.
But you may not have heard of one of the key organizers behind the caravan: Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or âPeople Without Borders.â And Pueblo Sin Fronteras wants to keep it that way.
Some left-leaning publications such as the New York Times have said that âno group has claimed responsibility for organizing [the most recent] caravan,â perhaps in order to stave off claims by President Trump and other conservatives that it is being aided by left-wing activists in the United States....
I have news for the Pope, the U.S. is not a dumping ground for problems caused by Catholic culture.
It would be much better if they gave aid so these people could to the countries they came from, so the people there can live decentlyâď¸Of course one great Improvement is to provide money to tell the citizens of these countries to: https://tinyurl.com/gmt84eo (Come out of the Catholic Church)đ
Vatican News wrote: US border closed
According to a statement from Peterâs Pence, âIn recent months, thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, having travelled more than 4,000 kilometres on foot and with makeshift vehicles from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Men and women, often with young children, flee poverty and violence, hoping for a better future in the United States. However, the US border remains closed to them.â

I hadn't even heard of Broetje Apples until just a few days ago. I really don't know what quite to think about them. They somewhat remind me of religious Methodists, which they really aren't, but they practice the faith that many a self-centered Baptist say people are supposed to have. A very interesting outfit which grows 6% of the United States Apples

Not only is their approach profitable but also they take faith another step by sharing the profits with people in their orchards, in their community, domestically and around the world.
Cheryl said their faith is ecumenical, working as partners with Catholic and Protestant efforts....

One thing farmers do not like the policies of the present Administration when it comes to foreign workers--or undocumented immigrants.

If youâre in a market and pick up one of the 17 varieties of apples, a pear or a bag of cherries with a âFirst Fruitsâ sticker on it, that comes from Broetje.... .... The Trump administrationâs crackdown on illegal immigration is particularly difficult and confusing for Broetjeâs immigrant employees. Bairstow describes the political climate figuratively as if it were a warning on the U.S. border: âThereâs a âno trespassingâ sign right next to the sign that says âhelp wanted.ââ He points out that the U.S. economy is growing faster than the native population can produce workers. But thereâs more involved than labor economics. Bairstow sees this conflict of needing workers and some people wanting to shut down borders as revolving around a single question: âHow do we show love to our neighbors?â
TMC, thanks for your comment.Â Â Regardless of the reasoning, the fact remains that legal immigration was more or less at a standstill forÂ Â more than 4 decades and one of the results of that was an assimilation of those groups into the US fabric.
JAG, there is definitely a difference between the legal immigrants of yesteryear and todayâs illegal immigrants.Â Â You donât read of sanctuary cities, abolishing ICE, telling people that the US Flag is an offensive to minorities, etc. that you see in todayâs society.Â Â
I never stated that previous immigrants ditched their cultural heritage but what they did do was adopt ours and became Americans with our customs, culture, and language.Â Â
A couple of links to show for you to ponder on this subject.Â Â Thanks.
World Magazine recently did an excellent article on the US and refugees: https://world.wng.org/2018/09/safe_haven_no_more
@US That cut in the amount of immigrants we took in that started in the 1920âs was part of the Eugenics Movement that also brought about forced sterilizations. The Eugenics âexpertsâ advising the cut particularly wanted the amount of Jewish people entering the country cut back because they claimed they had a âlower IQâ and would pollute the purity of the country. Thatâs why we deported a whole shipfull of Jewish Refugees back to Nazi Germany in the 30âs.

"Why should the hard working, seeking a better life majority, be left out because of fear of the minority?"
I've never said or implied anything close to this. My position is that only after extreme vetting, and that being on the level of an FBI background investigation, that anyone seeking a high security clearance would be subject to, should anyone be allowed in for our own safety. I'm not sure how this can be fast-tracked, but in today's climate, and for our own safety, it just can't be. Why should America let it's guard down, and comprimise on its safety, simply because those knocking at its door decide to leave their respective countrys, and want in now, as soon as they ring the bell? I'm not, and never have been against immigration...by legal means; the same process everyone else wanting to live here has had to wait patiently for. Look, we're not talking about a handful of immigrants knocking on the door here and there. How do you securely vet thousands on any given day once the process is compromised to cator to impatienc
US said... Also, it is s myth that thrust are taking jobs that other Americans wonât do"
I don't know about that...
There is a reason that companies like Ford, or Carrier are LEAVING us. Nobody wants the cheap jobs...
Except those who see it as a better choice than where they were (aka immigrants)...
Of course, some are also "taking" jobs from Americans. But all that does is encourage the laws of supply and demand. You want to work, you better be more skilled then the "ignorant" immigrant, or you won't get it. Makes for stronger, more efficient businesses, and lowers the price you pay for your goods...
US says.... Previous immigrants wanted to become Americans and assimilate into our society, adopt our customs and culture. That is not so of the borders breakers"
Not completely true. They retained their own culture with a very tight hold.
Their CHILDREN did not. The older generation that came here back then, many times, never learned English! I am referring to the younger generation of immigrants. Who will become true Americans in a matter of decades...
Just because we are facing different issues with these new immigrants doesn't mean we can't use old but modified ideas. They should be allowed here in a reasonable and speedy method, without compromising our safety and security...
For US and Chris000...
There is not a huge difference between the immigrants of today and yesterday...
MOST come here for better lives (just like back then)...
MANY (but not most) come here simply to destroy us (the new issue we have to face)...
I know y'all don't think that most Latin American immigrants are terrorist, drug dealers, or child molesters.
Why should the hard working, seeking a better life majority, be left out because of fear of the minority?
Having a semi-citizen, trackable class of people here (like we did back then) will help Them and Us h
Christopher000 from Rhode Island writes: "Really tragic to see so many who need our help, turned away because we are under such constant threat by enemies of the West, and Islam which is sworn to convert or destroy anyone who isn't them."
Wise observation and so true. Our various immigration agencies face a very real problem in this way. As you said, most everyone who comes will claim good reasons for doing so. But as has been pointed out, some want to come here to be predators of what freedom and prosperity we have left. As far as I'm concerned, no Muslims (refugees or not) should be allowed here as they are simply socioeconomic dead weight. It would bring me great joy to see our government tenaciously trying to bring in helpless christian families from other nations that are refugees and/or persecuted for their faith in Christ. Thankfully we've seen the Trump administration do some of that, and hopefully they'll do much, much more.
Just kidding,.and yes, things are way different than those good 'ole days of yesteryear. Very unfortunately, the present climate of fear is a huge hindrance for those who truly are running for their lives, or truly want a better life for themselves and their children, etc. Everyone has a story of fear, tragedy, and poverty, but who is really who, is the dilemna we face, and these hoards advancing on our border by the thousands, and growing, really exasperates this nation which really wants to help the sincere, and the down and out, etc. Really tragic to see so many who need our help, turned away because we are under such constant threat by enemies of the West, and Islam which is sworn to convert or destroy anyone who isn't them.
âThis thread could be put back into the late 1800s and look very similar. Some would say don't allow any immigrants in... And others would say let them All in... it's who comes here and how they get here.... If we made the legalization process much smoother and faster, the good ones would have no issue âŚ . Meanwhile, the bad ones would continue crossing the border because they know if they get tracked,âŚ . they'll be caught in what they're doing.

We could use more sound thinking people like you, Just a Guy. Your thoughts are comforting, encouraging, and worthy to be considered by all who claim to have the mind of Christ. There are reasonable and peaceful solutions to the issues we face today. But the proud and unregenerate are unwilling. Their idea of justice is from beneath, and man-made.
People need the Lord and people need to be loved as God in Christ has loved us.
Just have time to make a brief comment. There is a HUGE difference between immigrants of nearly 100 years ago and today. One might even point the severe limitation on immigrants coming here during the stretch between the 1920âs and the mid sixties. Previous immigrants wanted to become Americans and assimilate into our society, adopt our customs and culture. That is not so of the borders breakers Also, it is s myth that thrust are taking jobs that other Americans wonât do.
Plain Old Tim from Possum Hollow, USA writes: "And I take back everything I said about nuking them. Instead I think a hundred thousand ordinary American citizens should stand just inside the border and hurl marshmallows at them until they retreat back into Mexico."
Mexicans like sugar almost as much we southerners do. Just a thousand of em' would wolf down every marshmallow you chucked at them.

Very creative, but no, certainly not Christopher-audio. I just have a lot to say on a certain topic today. I realize it's been a bit overwhelming though.
You forgot to proof-read before submitting your comment, but I figured it out, nonetheless. I had to combine the processing powers of the Summit, here in the US, along with China's, Taihulight supercomputers to decode the complex code, but I got 'er done.
