As the angry Left continues to protest President Donald J. Trump’s lawful executive order banning entry of some refugees from terrorism-infested countries, there are certain realities these people are ignorant of or are willfully ignoring.
First and foremost, it needs to be said that had Hillary Clinton won the election, there is little doubt that she would have continued to pursue the very same immigration and refugee policies as President Barack Obama, and in fact, she said as much during and after the campaign.
“If we claim we are for family, then we have to pull together and resolve the outstanding issues around our broken immigration system,” Clinton said in May 2015, according to her campaign website. “The American people support comprehensive immigration reform not just because it’s the right thing to do–and it is–but because they know it strengthens families, strengthens our economy, and strengthens our country. … We can’t wait any longer for a path to full and equal citizenship.” (RELATED: Find out what Hillary Clinton is doing these days at Clinton.news)
Note to Hillary: If our immigration system is broken, it’s because our immigration laws are not being fully enforced.
But she knows that. Indeed, this kind of language is standard fare for every Leftist; it’s code for wall-free, wide open borders, allowing entrance for whomever wants to come and for whatever reason they want to do so.
Were that the case, we would cease to be a country. No nation is a nation if it has no borders.
Beyond that reality, open borders invite terrorism (as well as a host of social and cultural problems). Just take an honest look at what is going on in Europe. Since the “refugee crisis” that some have said was exacerbated, if not started, by the Obama administration’s support for the “Arab Spring,” hundreds of thousands of people from Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Libya and other countries that are destroying themselves (with Western help) have streamed into Europe, bringing with them their Islamic faith and cultural aversion to Western liberalism.
With them have also come terrorist operatives who, on behalf of the Islamic State, have killed hundreds of people while disrupting civil society in a half-dozen European nations, the largest of which is Germany.
And yet, the Left-leaning leaders of these countries continue to invite more of these refugees in, doubling down on bad policy to the point where their own people are beginning to reject them.
Clinton would have adopted these same self-destructive policies, as her carefully-worded code language proves. And the discredited establishment media would have cheered every single one as progressive, forward-thinking, values we can be proud of, and what America really stands for.
But her policies would have been every bit as dangerous and self-destructive as those in Europe have proven to be – and already proved to be in the U.S. during the Obama administration. Clinton’s policies would have led to even more attacks like those in San Bernardino, Calif., at the Boston Marathon, and in Orlando, Fla.
What’s more, terrorists would be gaming our system under Clinton, just as they’ve done in Europe. As noted by M. G. Oprea, writing for The Federalist, “Politically correct platitudes provided cover for ISIS agents to infiltrate Europe inside the refugee bands that swarmed borders.” (RELATED: What immigration actions has President Trump taken lately to protect our country?

“In Germany last week, the vice president of Bavaria’s intelligence-gathering agency, Manfred Hauser, announced ISIS ‘hit squads’ had entered Europe with the flood of migrants that came across the borders over the last year and a half. According to Hauser, there are hundreds of reports that these kinds of terrorist cells have infiltrated European countries, and ‘irrefutable evidence that there is an IS command structure in place’ that will ‘likely’ launch a coordinated attack on Germany.”
Germany’s entrance policy for migrants – especially for those from Syria – are some of the most liberal in all of Europe. But as any clever enemy will do, ISIS has taken advantage of it to infiltrate the Christian West so that it can begin slaughtering people its leaders and supporters view as the enemy.
Had Clinton been in the Oval Office this past week instead of Trump, refugee-related executive orders coming out of the administration would have looked more like those of politically correct Germany and France than a nation with responsible adults at the helm. And while the media would have cheered any Left-wing immigration/refugee policy signed by a President Hillary Clinton, those policies would have done nothing to enhance our security. They would have put more Americans at risk.
