“Look, we have to stop with political correctness. We have to get down to creating a country that’s not going to have the kind of problems that we’ve had with people flying planes into the World Trade Centers, with shootings in California, with all the problems all over the world. We have to find out what’s going on. And we can’t be the stupid country any more. We’re laughed at all over the world. We can’t let people come into our country and break our borders.”  (Fox Business 2016 Republican 2-tier debate, January 14, 2016)

Confronting Deliberate Lawlessness

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, November 13, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Congress is trying to pass legislation to punish jurisdictions that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws, but so far, they have not been successful. That leaves states in a dilemma about what to do when local jurisdictions openly defy laws and deliberately protect criminal illegal aliens from federal arrest and deportation.

Certainly, everyone should obey the law and, if a law is wrong, there’s a proper way to change it. But, what will be done about those giving sanctuary to illegal aliens who commit crimes, are arrested locally, and then, released by officials that don’t agree with the law?

In an October issue of USA Today, Republican Representative George Cleveland of North Carolina explained the situation this way, “Everyone says, ‘It’s a federal government problem.’ No it isn’t. The federal government is not doing its job, so it’s our problem.” Continue reading

Birth Tourism & Anchor Babies

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, October 23, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

You’ve probably heard the term, “anchor babies,” and you probably know that it refers to babies born to illegal aliens in the United States. Also, they’re called “jackpot babies,” because the illegal alien who delivers a child on U.S. soil has hit the jackpot – citizenship for the baby, and benefits for the family. Pew Research reported 350,000 babies born in the U.S. between March 2009 and March 2010 to at least one illegal immigrant parent.

It’s not unusual for Mexican women to apply for visitors’ visas that allow border residents to travel inside a 25-mile zone in the U.S. for up to three days to shop and visit family, and, while they are here, give birth to an anchor baby. But a CEO of McAllen Texas Medical Center near the border described seeing pregnant women “about to give birth that walk up to the hospital still wet from swimming across the river in actual labor … dirty, wet, cold … here to have a child in the United States.”

But do you know the term, “birth tourism?” Birth tourists are foreigners who travel to this country to give birth to a newborn that receives U.S. citizenship and immediate qualification for a U.S. passport. Some estimate that 36,000 tourists from all over the world come into the U.S. every year to give birth to a baby here. Estimates are that at least 500 companies operating in China offer birth tourism services into the U.S. Continue reading

S.B. 6: No Driver’s License for Illegal Aliens

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, February 27, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

I’m always amazed when I think about giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens; surely, that can’t happen in Georgia under a Republican Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and a General Assembly with a comfortable Republican majority, where the House Speaker and Senate President Pro Tem are both Republicans. In fact, House Republicans are only one vote shy of a two-thirds majority, which means they could pass anything they want to pass. That caused me to wonder why they don’t pass bills that uphold the law and the Constitution, when they could pass anything they want.

Considering their overwhelming majority, I came to this conclusion. They DO pass bills they want to pass, and obviously, they don’t want to stop illegal aliens from getting driver’s licenses. If they did, S.B. 6 would be well on its way to becoming law. But it’s not.

Only 12 of 56 senators cosigned with Senator Josh McKoon when he introduced S.B. 6 on January 28th. It was assigned to the Public Safety Committee, where it’s been stalled ever since. So, I have some questions. Why would duly elected lawmakers hesitate to cosponsor a bill to prohibit the issuance of legal documents to people who break the law to come here and are breaking the law to stay here? Why would the Senate Public Safety committee hesitate to give S.B. 6 a hearing? Don’t they want it to be openly debated? What or who is stopping S.B. 6? Is the lobby for illegal aliens THAT powerful?
