Last week we observed that "The illegal alien invasion is destroying our country - deliberately". If you haven't already read that earlier article, I suggest you do so before continuing with this one.
Arthur Sido makes similar observations, in greater detail, in a recent blog post. I don't agree with Mr. Sido on everything, particularly when it comes to issues of race versus culture (he tends to blame the former and I the latter), but in general he makes pretty good sense. That's particularly so in his latest article titled "Brown plus Black equal Red".
He makes the very important point that private "charitable" organizations are responsible for funding and enabling a very large part of the influx. Highlights in orange are my emphasis.
The whole world is somehow making their way to Central America and then traipsing the length of Mexico to end up on our southern border. Who is paying for their travels? Who is paying for their food and cell phones and providing all of the very new looking clothing they are wearing?
In many cases…you are. Especially if you are Catholic.
Catholic “Charities” is one of the main outfits that are helping to pay for illegals to live in the U.S. and doing so with taxpayer funds through FEMA of all places. In Government using charities to hide just how much money is going to illegal immigration you can read about the scam being perpetrated where the Feds funnel money through groups like the United Way and Catholic Charities:If you’re a taxpayer — in New York or anywhere in the US – you’re getting scammed by groups like United Way, Catholic Charities and the Central American Refugee Center (CARECEN). You may think these are charities. Truth is, these groups are hauling in millions in taxpayer dollars — your money — under government contracts to facilitate illegal immigration.
These illegals aren’t being forced to fend for themselves….Even before crossing the border, migrants still in Mexico are being handed debit cards loaded with $800 a month to enable them to pay for necessities. The gift cards are distributed by the non-profit Organization for Migration, thanks to money provided by the US State Department.
$800 per month times how many hundreds of thousands?
After crossing and surrendering to US Border agents, many migrants are directed to Catholic Charities, which provides them with hotel rooms, meals and clothing, and sometimes pays for their bus or plane tickets to their chosen destinations. Sister Norma Pimentel, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley explains that the mission is merely to “give a cup of water in Jesus’ name.”
Who can argue with that? Except that the money isn’t coming from the Sunday collection basket. Sister Pimentel admits her organization is reimbursed by the federal government. It’s coming from taxpayers, who have no clue they’re supporting this operation.
It is a giant scheme to facilitate and encourage illegal aliens. Where is this Federal money coming from?
Texas and Arizona are busing migrants to the nation’s capital. Meeting the buses there are staff from CARECEN, a far left group funded almost entirely by government contracts, and Catholic Charities. These groups hand out gift cards and food packages, direct migrants to shelters or hotel rooms, or help them buy tickets to other destinations. Who pays for all this? FEMA — the Federal Emergency Management Agency, a government agency that funnels money through the nonprofits.
FEMA’s Emergency Food and Services Program board includes Catholic Charities and United Way, which pass the money to local nonprofits serving illegal immigrants. FEMA has already provided $2.2 million in humanitarian funding for this purpose in the DC area.
. . .
Many of these groups and offices are not just into helping illegals get free money but also to expedite their path to citizenship and of course becoming voters.
[Rep. Lance Gooden] said he brought up the packets with the Transportation Security Administration and the federal agency told him that migrants sometimes show up with “very convincing letters” and are often allowed to board airplanes before anyone else.
Gooden named the Catholic Charities of San Diego and the Jewish Family Service with carrying out these operations.
He showed one of the packets to “Just the News” that included the travel schedule for a Honduran who entered the US illegally in California and was helped by the San Diego Rapid Response Network.
The travel arrangements appear to have been made by Jewish Family Service, “Just the News” reported, citing the packet.
”The state of California, US corporations and nonprofits, and the Biden administration are facilitating human smuggling and child trafficking in our country,” Gooden told the media outlet.
Mr. Sido goes on to cite the Colony Ridge development near Houston, which appears designed to house tens of thousands of illegal aliens and threatens to turn into a slum-like, crime-ridden Third World barrio unless drastic steps are taken. He notes:
It won’t stop with Colony Ridge.
“Think of the chain migration that comes in, think of the criminal elements with the cartels that come in through that chain migration,” J. Michael Waller, Senior Analyst for Strategy at the Center for Security Policy told The Daily Wire. “This is going to be cartel land near Houston and at risk of being a no-go zone.”
Waller said developments like Colony Ridge will “change the entire United States of America,” and to a large extent, already have, going on to suggest that similar settlements are “being planted in pockets around the country.”
“They have no idea of the American founding, of American founding principles, they haven’t taken any training in what it means to be an American or what the American way of life is all about,” he added before lamenting “This is just symptomatic of the destruction of our country.”
Within a short few years, as millions cross the border, the border states like Texas and Arizona are going to become lawless no-go zones replicating the exact sort of conditions that made earlier generations of mestizos willing to face enormous hardships to come to the U.S.. The newer generations flooding the border look more like an invading army than genial carpenters and gardeners. Most are young, military aged men who are precisely the demographic group responsible for most of the mestizo violence both here and in Central America.
. . .
While the move to transport illegals to blue cities has been amusing and red-pilling for some, it won’t ultimately stop the problem. Watch for blue state governors to push to re-re-locate these illegals to sparsely populated red states in the north to “spread the burden”. States like Wyoming, the Dakotas and Montana have at or well under a million people right now, mostly White, and it won’t take many illegals to swamp the locals. If you drop a Colony Ridge style colonia in Wyoming with 100,000 people, it would be 20% of the entire population of Wyoming in one shot and be the largest city in the state.
We are watching the human equivalent of a zerg rush at the border. A few thousand illegals can be managed but millions overwhelm the system.
Like zerglings, the mestizos and various other third world types from Haiti and Afghanistan, will devour their way across the U.S. leaving devastation in their path. Nowhere will be safe but clearly places like Texas will be the first to fall. Sending a thousand illegal aliens to New York City is time consuming and expensive, and those thousand illegals are replaced hourly in many spots on the border.
Social services across the country are already strained and millions of extra mestizos will make it worse. When the cartels really start to get a foothold in major cities, they are going to need to evict the current crop of black gangs and that is going to lead to serious bloodshed.
There's much more at the link. Important reading, IMHO.
As I said above, read Mr. Sido's article in the light of my post last week. As I noted then, the overloading of social services is an integral, essential part of the Cloward-Piven strategy, which is being implemented at the rush by the Biden administration. It's nothing less than a deliberate attempt to destroy the current American way of life, and transform this nation beyond all recognition. It's also, I believe, an effort to transform our political landscape. After all, if a couple of hundred thousand aliens can be transported to each of a dozen sparsely-populated "red" states, then given citizenship and voting rights, they'll effectively swamp the voters already living there, and turn those states purple or blue in a single election. That would completely transform Congress and the Senate into blue hives. Conservative, traditional and constitutional causes will be crushed. If you think the progressive left aren't aiming to do precisely that, then I suggest you're blind to political reality.
Mr. Sido believes we've passed the point of no return. He concludes his article by saying:
The facts are indisputable. We have lost our country, now we just wait for the fireworks to really start. They are coming and soon.
I'm not so sure we've "gone over the edge" yet, but that's only provided the strongest measures are implemented by the next Administration. They will have to include cutting off the flow of government money to all illegal aliens (and those admitted "legally" by the Biden administration), deporting any and all aliens who fail to conform to legal and regulatory requirements (including missing appointments with immigration authorities, which should lead to automatic expulsion), and enforcing strict border security. That won't be easy, and it won't be cheap, and it'll be opposed at every step by the progressive left, just as they did their best (very successfully) to block President Trump's efforts to build a border wall. Can such measures succeed? Perhaps . . . and perhaps not. Either way, it'll take a massive effort, and it won't be a smooth or easy ride.
If such measures can't be implemented very quickly, and maintained, then I fear Mr. Sido's conclusion may be correct. If that's the case, then our future is cloudy indeed. I'm not one of those who believes that armed civil conflict is likely to resolve the problem. That ignores the reality that two can play at that game. If the alien horde swamping us can be persuaded that taking up arms against those who don't want them here is the only way for them to keep their government benefits and resident status, we'll see them lining up in their millions to be issued weapons and get training. Why wouldn't they? In their shoes, most of us would, too. Under those circumstances, if things come to violence, constitutional and legal protections would go out the window, and life will degenerate into a "devil take the hindmost" affair. The best one could hope for is that those responsible for perpetrating such a catastrophe upon America would be made to suffer the consequences in their own persons, just as the rest of us would too. For most of us, resistance will be a matter of ensuring our own security as best we can, rather than a "reconquest" of America.
I do believe that efforts to undermine the First Amendment and freedom of speech in America are part of a program designed to crush such potential opposition before it can become widespread and more determined. I fully expect similar efforts to be made to undermine the Second Amendment, and disarm the American people. After all, disarmed people make the best (and easiest) victims. (We may be sure that the progressive left, and the crime cartels currently driving the illegal alien invasion, would not be among the disarmed. They have more sense than that.)
I'm glad I'm not a young man in today's America. I wouldn't be looking forward to what may be coming. As an older man, I don't expect to survive the coming struggle; nature will take me out of the picture before it's won or lost. Nevertheless, it's a struggle we'll all have to fight, young or old, because there's nowhere else to go. As the late President Reagan pointed out more than half a century ago:
We'd better gird up our loins and get ready, because the struggle for freedom will have to be won all over again. May we live up to the example of our Founding Fathers, and make them proud.
