Conservative commentator and early Trump supporter Ann Coulter called for the United States to implement an immigration moratorium in a tweet on Tuesday.
Coulter is one of the most well-known conservatives to endorse the policy, which recently has floated into the conversation in American nationalist and conservative circles. An immigration moratorium would place a pause on all migration to the United States, thus allowing policy makers to focus on improving the lives of people already living in their communities.
Coulter mentioned the Immigration Act of 1924, a historical immigration reform signed into law by conservative President Calvin Coolidge. The 1924 Act placed strict limits on immigration levels, which had been historically high at the time in a manner not unlike the modern-day United States.
Too often conservatives have allowed themselves to be caught in a rhetorical trap set by the left in which legal immigration is inherently good, while only illegal immigration is worth objecting to. This zero-sum distinction is increasingly obsolete in a legal paradigm where progressives have fundamentally blurred the distinction between what is and isn’t lawful immigration.
The massive ‘caravan’ formations of economic migrants marching to the southern border from Central America demanding residence in America? That’s all nominally ‘legal’ immigration. Most caravan migrants request asylum protection at ports of entry, oftentimes making dubious claims of persecution. Once they’ve logged a claim in the immigration court system, they’re set up for a lengthy and byzantine legal battle in which they stand a good chance of receiving an amnesty with the help of high-powered immigration lawyers and activist judges.
Not to mention, that the United States has allowed record-setting and truly massive levels of legal immigration into its borders in recent decades, demonstrating a level of generosity and hospitality unmatched by any other country in the world. If we were to decide to use our resources to elevate the lives of our own people instead of bringing in millions of new immigrants, no honest observer could claim such a decision is rooted towards antipathy towards others. There are hundreds of millions of Americans of all kinds that would benefit from the immigration moratorium Coulter has proposed.
BIG: Saint Louis Police Detective REFUSED TO SIGN Soros Funded Prosecutor’s Probable Cause Document Against McCloskeys
This could doom the bunk charges.
New developments in the criminal case against Mark and Patricia McCloskey by Soros-funded Saint Louis Prosecutor Kim Gardner reveals that a lead police detective refused to sign a probable cause statement drafted by Gardner’s office. The probable cause statement appears filled with falsehoods and lies, and claims that the trespassing rioters that broke into the private community of the McCloskeys were “peaceful.”
The ‘signature’ element of the probable cause statements against both McCloskeys has been conspicuously left blank, with Curtis Burgdorf leaving off his signature.
KDSK St. Louis reported Tuesday that Gardner’s Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley emailed these documents to Sergeant Curtis Burgdorf the day before a gun confiscation search warrant was served on the McCloskeys, telling the cop that he needed to sign them “now.” Gardner’s office merely went ahead with the gun confiscation, later criminally charging the couple, after falsely trying to put words in the mouth of the St. Louis Police Department.
KDSK is also reporting that Burgdorf had documented numerous threats directed towards the McCloskeys by the Black Lives Matter trespassing rioters, including waving loaded pistol magazines at the couple and warning that they would be “coming back” to the residence.
Gardner’s subordinate Hinckley would go on to leave Sergeant Burgdorf an angry voicemail for refusing to sign off on fraudulent documents alleging crimes against the McCloskeys.
“Curtis, you need to call me back. I wrote a long email to you trying to ask a bunch of questions about whatever it is you said some was (expletive). Now we need to straighten this out because I’m about done with this crap. Call me back.”
Merely weeks after charges were filed, the case against the McCloskeys is already filled with massive improprieties and downright corruption, including a revelation that a prosecutor with Gardner’s office had ordered forensics experts to reassemble Patricia McCloskey’s pistol from its original state as a non-functional courtroom prop to a functional firearm.
It’s well past time for these bunk charges to be summarily dismissed as political prosecution, and for Gardner to be investigated for her resolute willingness to prosecute her political enemies and go easy on left-wing criminals.
