Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Flirts with the Idea of Abolishing the Citizenship Exam

Published

2020 presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke believes that eliminating the citizenship test for immigrants is “something for us to think about.”

While on a public panel discussion, O’Rourke was open to the idea of abolishing the requirement that immigrants pass a test before becoming naturalized citizens. This comment was made during a candidate forum this past weekend in Des Moines, Iowa.

During this discussion, the citizenship test mandated by law was described as “another structural barrier” for migrants. Yahoo News reporter Brittany Shepherd reported this comment on Twitter while in attendance at the Iowa event.

In typical fashion, O’Rourke gave a neutral response when pressed about the question of repealing the citizenship exam.

One panelist allegedly said that the citizenship test requirement that immigrants must go through is disrupting the flow of immigration to America. In the panelist’s view, this justifies its removal in order to streamline the process.

In its current form, the citizenship exam consists of two parts where in one section prospective citizens must demonstrate English proficiency in reading, writing and speaking. The second part of this exam tests civics knowledge. Applicants are asked 10 questions out of a pool of 100.  To pass this section, an applicant must get six out of 10 correct.

While such a suggestion to abolish the citizenship exam seems far-fetched, it does make sense from an electoral standpoint.

Based on polling and certain demographic trends, Third World mass migration tends to favor Democrats significantly.

So, any reduced barrier to entry that facilitates mass migration would be welcomed by Democratic elites. Although Democrats would gain tremendously at the ballot box thanks to a looser migration policy, there could be unforeseen social consequences. Europe is Exhibit A of the corrosive social effects of mass migration, as migrant ghettoes are popping up left and right throughout the continent.

Such a scenario could become a reality in America if its current immigration system is kept intact, or in extreme cases, modified to encourage even larger migrant waves. Either way, the average American loses out.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
