OUT OUT OUT: KY Governor Endorses BAN on Sanctuary Cities

Published

on

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin and some Kentucky Republicans are getting behind a proposal to ban sanctuary cities.

The legislation in question will be sponsored by State Senator Danny Carroll and State Representative John Blanton. The bill’s goal is to prohibit local governments from passing policies that prevent law enforcement agencies from working together with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The bill defines a “sanctuary policies” as orders, ordinances, resolutions or policies that limit or prohibit local government officials from communicating or cooperating with federal agencies when dealing with immigration issues. It also describes these sanctuary policies as those which provide illegal aliens the ability to live legally in jurisdictions. Any law that violates U.S. sanctuary city law also applies to state law.

Local government would have to follow through with requests from ICE to maintain custody of an immigrant or transfer an immigrant into ICE custody. Municipalities would also not be allowed to bar law enforcement officers from asking about a persons’ citizenship or immigration status.

This push for banning sanctuary cities comes after Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton claimed that the city “only assists ICE when there are arrest warrants issued from a judge, or there is a clear danger to public safety” according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Lexington political leadership claims that the city is not a sanctuary city. They say that the current procedures have stayed in place for more than two decades. To allay further criticism, they also assert that federal agencies have a strong presence in Lexington, and generally have sufficient resources to carry out their operations.

Susan Straub, the spokeswoman for Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton proclaimed that “Of course if they request assistance because of special circumstances our local police provide it, but generally they have the resources they need.”

If passed, this bill would keep Mayor Gorton or other city mayors from crafting their own immigration policies.

Governor Bevin contends that local politicians have proposed policies which would discourage cooperation between local and federal authorities. Bevin, however, conceded that Kentucky doesn’t have a problem enforcing the current laws at the federal level.

If passed into law, Kentucky would join 10 other states in passing “sanctuary city” bans if the current proposal receives his signature.

Kentucky has taken a rightward shift lately, especially on issues such as gun rights.

This potential move to ban sanctuary cities would only cement Kentucky’s more conservative drift in public policy.

Mass migration is a major issue with strong social and political implications.

With the federal government at a deadlock now, states will have to take more proactive measures in ensuring that they are safe from the negative effects of mass migration. Kentucky will likely join this growing reaction against mass migration.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

on

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
