DHS Reports that Citizenship Approvals Increased in 2018

Published

on

In 2018, Homeland Security reached a five-year high in citizenship application approvals.

It also swore in more immigrants as naturalized citizens according to a new statistical report released on the night of July 26, 2019.

These numbers contradict criticism from Democratic officials who claim that there are backlogs at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The Homeland Security branch handles all legal immigration matters.

Additionally, the new report indicates that the government is processing more asylum-seeker petitions than any of the past four years despite talks about a supposed “crackdown” on asylum seekers. This included a 61 percent increase from 2017 to 2018 in asylum applications.

When all categories of humanitarian programs are considered — asylum, refugees, crime victim visas, Temporary Protected Status and screening for credible fear or reasonable fear of persecution — these numbers were 32 percent higher than in 2017.

USCIS has come under fire in recent years, with immigrants’ rights groups accusing the Trump administration of building a bureaucratic “wall” to deny people easy paths to citizenship.

Hispanic Congressional Democrats claim that things are so bad that they’ve requested and have actually been granted an investigation, which is being carried out by the Government Accountability Office.

The chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Congressman Joaquin Castro, said that this supposed backlog is part of “President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.”

According to The Washington Times, the backlog in citizenship applications began during the end of the Obama administration. Yet, nobody complained about this when Obama was in office.

However, Democrats might be complaining now after new evidence has shown that migrants bloc vote for their party.

Beto O’Rourke’s surprising performance in Texas demonstrates how demographic shift has made states like Texas more competitive for Democrats.

For that reason, Democrats are clamoring for all sorts of schemes from amnesty to getting rid of the citizenship exam to get as many migrants into their voter pipeline as possible.

Houston Police Allow Abortion Clinic to Operate Despite Texas Courts Ruling Them Non-Essential

Published

on

On March 30th, a judge ruled that Texas abortion clinics could stay open. This ruling came a few days after the Texas governor, Greg Abbott, deemed abortion servies non-essential.

Since abortions are clearly elective surgeries, the ruling was overturned by a vote of 2-1 in the 5th circuit court of appeals on March 31st. Meaning, the governor’s order stands and abortion clinics must close until non-essential businesses are allowed to open back up.

This hasn’t stopped one abortion clinic in Houston from continuing to kill the unborn.

In a video released on April 1st, via the YouTube channel ‘ProofThatGodExists,’ an abortion clinic in Houston is shown to still be accepting clients.

A couple of pro-life activists are shown in the video standing outside the abortion clinic. Across the street is a police officer, with whom one of the activists eventually talks.

They tell the offiicer that the abortion offices are still seeing clients. The officer acknowledges their concerns and says, “we’ll take care of it.”

A few minutes later, the officer goes to talk to the pro-life activists. The officer informed the activists that he was just there to “keep the peace” and nothing else.

One of the activists again informed the officer of the situation, asking, “Do you know that it’s illegal for them to do abortions today?” The officer replied, “I’m not out here for that.”

The activist then reiterated that he was asking him not why he was there, but if he personally knew of the current order. He wanted to know if the officer was not enforcing because he didn’t know about the order or because his department was choosing to ignore it in this case.

The officer didn’t want to answer directly. So, he again said, “I’m not saying that what you’re saying is wrong…. But that’s not what I’m out here for. I’m out here to keep the peace….”

He then said, “Whoever you need to call to enforce what you’re asking me about…” He was interupted by the second activist, who challenged him, insisting, “When people are breaking the law, we call the police.”

The video continues on with many more women entering the clinic. Eventually the abortion doctor arrived to the clinic, as well.

It’s clear that the clinic is in direct violation of the order that declares abortion services non-essential. Why the Houston police aren’t enforcing the order as it pertains to this particular clinic is still unclear.
