          How Does Immigration Reduce Mass Shootings?

          EXCERPT:
          ...
          Could we look at mass murders from the last decade?

          Those include:

          2016: Orlando, Florida, second-generation Afghan immigrant Omar Mateen — 49 dead;

          2015: San Bernardino, California, first- and second-generation Pakistani immigrants Tashfeen Malik and Syed Farook — 14 dead;

          2015: Chattanooga, Tennessee, Kuwaiti immigrant Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez — 5 dead;

          2014: Isla Vista, California, half-Malaysian immigrant from England, Elliot Rodger — 6 dead;

          2013: The Boston Marathon, Chechen immigrants Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — 4 dead;

          2009: Fort Hood, Texas, Palestinian second-generation immigrant Nidal Hasan — 13 dead;

          2009: Binghamton, New York, Vietnamese immigrant Jiverly Wong — 13 dead;

          2007: Virginia Tech, South Korean immigrant Seung-Hui Cho — 32 dead.

          In the same time period, about a half-dozen mass murders were committed by American white men in their own country, where — despite Teddy Kennedy’s best efforts — they far outnumber Vietnamese, Pakistanis and Afghans.

          All the American shooters were visible nut cases who never should have been let out of a straitjacket. Their psychotic episodes wouldn’t even count as mass shootings if committed by immigrants. Pakistani Naveed Haq’s 2006 mass shooting at the Seattle Jewish Federation, for example, isn’t generally included on lists of terrorist attacks because, according to his parents, he had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and was on lithium.

          Why do we need this? How are our current immigration policies helping the people who already live here? How are they making our country better, stronger, safer?

          The operation to remake our country began with lies and has been sustained with lies ever since. Teddy Kennedy swore up and down that his 1965 Immigration Act would preserve America’s traditional “ethnic mix” and would not “inundate” our country with people from “deprived nations.”

          In fact, his law brought in the poorest of the poor, from the most dysfunctional cultures in the world, and effected the most dramatic demographic transformation of any nation in all of human history.

            Another "maybe deserves it's own thread", but here for now;
            Obama Removes “Bear Arms” Clause from Citizenship Oath
            EXCERPT:
            ...
            However, the Obama administration is removing this clause from the oath, and is thus taking away a huge part of the responsibility associated with being a citizen.

            Rich Tucker at Breitbart reported on this outrageous change:

            Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority, legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance.

            Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service.



            The pledge to help defend America was good enough for the 6.6 million immigrants naturalized since 2005 and good enough for the over 15 million naturalized since 1980, but Obama’s appointees at the USCIS think that is too much to ask of the 18.7 million estimated legal immigrants eligible today for eventual naturalization or the 750,000 who will be naturalized in the coming year.

            This radical change was announced a year ago, in July of 2015. Congress did not enact the change in new legislation. There was no congressional debate, no filibuster in the US Senate, and no sit-in in the House to demand that a bill to repeal the USCIS action be brought to a vote.

            The timing of this change could not be more symbolic of the utter contempt the Obama administration has for the immigration system. Just days after the Supreme Court split a decision on his executive order on amnesty, thus upholding the ruling of the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, all of a sudden there is now less responsibility with becoming an American citizen.

                  Migrants and Smugglers Won’t Be Stopped by Donald Trump’s Wall, Ranchers Say
                  EXCERPTS;
                  ...
                  Mr. Ladd, 61, looks and acts the way a rancher is expected to, with brush mustache, hard squint and matter-of-fact affect, all kept tight under a sweat-stained cowboy hat. Bouncing westward, he points to spots where fencing had been peeled in the past like an upturned can of Spam. In the last four years, he says, more than 50 vehicles have rumbled through fence cuts and across his property.

                  What is the protocol when you encounter armed drug smugglers driving on your land? “You pull over and say, ‘Adiós,’” Mr. Ladd says. “You don’t get in their way, because they’ll kill you.”

                  Here is one aspect of everyday life along the southern border, where national demarcations are blurred by the supply and demand for what the United States continues to crave: drugs and cheap labor. The attendant casualties include human rights, property rights, civil discourse and the security of sovereignty.
                  ...
                  Ed Ashurst, 65, an outspoken rancher who manages land about 20 miles from the border, is more assertive, but he needs to address something else first. “I’ll be straight up with you,” he says with a scowl. “If Hillary Clinton gets elected, I’m moving to Australia.”

                  Time will tell whether the Arizona rancher is forced to blend into the Outback, but his assessment of Mr. Trump’s plan is just as succinct. “To say you’re going to build a wall from Brownsville to San Diego?” he says. “That is the most idiotic thing I’ve ever heard. And it’s not going to change anything.”

                  The solution favored among ranchers is infused with a fatalism that nothing will change — government being government, and the cartels always one step ahead — so why bother. But here it goes:

                  Intensive, round-the-clock patrols along the border are required for a fence or wall to work; otherwise, those determined to cross will always find a way. But, they argue, if you have boots on the ground, you will have no need for anything so beautiful as the Great Wall of Trump.

                  It is easy, from a distance, to dismiss the ranchers along the border as right-wing Chicken Littles whose complaints hint of racism. Too easy, in fact.
                  ...
                  Nice, Mr. Ashurst says, still scowling. “But how would you like it?” he asks, referring to the ebb-and-flow parade of strangers, some armed, past his door. “Do you think you’re more important than the poor moron who has the misfortune to live along the border?”

                  True, the overall number of migrants has plummeted in the last 15 years or so. Here, in what the Border Patrol categorizes as the Tucson sector — about 90,000 square miles, with 262 miles of border — there were 63,397 arrests in the 2015 fiscal year, compared with 10 times that in the 2001 fiscal year.

                  Paul Beeson, the patrol’s chief agent for the Tucson sector, attributes the drop to an increase in officers and tactical equipment, an improvement in the Mexican economy, and the fencing erected along the border about a decade ago.

                  But Mr. Ladd and other ranchers say there has been an unsettling swap: fewer migrants, but many more drug traffickers.

                  Mr. Beeson acknowledges the change in demographics, and the challenge in facing an adversary with comparable intelligence and surveillance abilities. “They don’t have to move their product today,” he says of the cartels. “They can move it tomorrow. They can sit and watch, and they do that. Watching us. Watching us watching them.”

                  But he says the Border Patrol continues to bolster its “tactical infrastructure” — higher resolution cameras, for example, and an increased use of drones. “It’s unacceptable to us that folks along the border should be experiencing this type of activity,” Mr. Beeson says. “We’re doing all we can.”

                  It is telling, though, that Mr. Ladd never used to carry a gun or a cellphone. That changed six years ago, when his friend Robert Krentz Jr., known to help people no matter their nationality, was shot to death on his family’s ranch after radioing his brother that he had come upon another migrant in distress. His unsolved murder caused a national outcry, and it led to state legislation intended to crack down on illegal immigration. It also prompted Mr. Ladd’s wife to demand that he carry a cellphone and a Glock.
                  ...
                  The fear, the frustration, the sense of being forsaken — it can be exhausting. “Nothing seems to work, because we keep buying what they bring to sell,” said Crystal Foreman Brown, 62, an artist and the host of this iced-tea chat. “But Trump’s fence issue at least brings up the issue that there is an issue. For officials in Washington to act like we’re being silly and hysterical — it’s kind of inconceivable.”
                  ...

                    Border Control Council: Clinton will bring cartel violence and terror to America
                    EXCERPTS;
                    ...
                    The council, which has formally endorsed Donald Trump’s GOP presidential bid, represents more than 16,500 men and women who work on the front lines of the nation’s border protection.

                    From their perspective, the vast damage already done to border security under the Obama administration is only going to get worse if Clinton is elected.

                    And they aren’t the only ones worried.
                    ...
                    But if you believe the men and women who spend every day working to secure the nation’s borders are “paying attention,” Clinton’s secure border claims quickly fall apart.

                    As the Border Council noted: “It has been reported that the agency released more than 80,000 illegal aliens with criminal records. This number was significantly larger than what Director Saldana told Congress during her testimony. The Boston Globe reported that 30 percent of those released in New England re-offended and were charged with rape, child molestation, aggravated assault, armed robbery and attempted murder. This is Obama’s true legacy on border security.”

                    And it’s a legacy Clinton has vowed to continue. That, according to the Border Council, should worry all Americans.

                          There is a slight left lean to some of the observations by the author of the following, but otherwise some interesting insight into the history of immigration and race in the USA,

                          The 1965 Law That Gave the Republican Party Its Race Problem
                          LBJ didn’t think the Immigration and Nationality Act would be revolutionary. He was wrong.
