Senate Spending Bill Has a Backdoor Amnesty for 4,000 Liberians, Trump Must Reject It

Published

Is President Trump about to sign a backdoor amnesty bill?

On Tuesday, December 17, 2019, the Senate voted for the National Defense Authorization Act of 2020.

Although the bill was originally intended to fund the Defense Department, it had provisions snuck into it that would give permanent residency to thousands of Liberians.

Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed, slipped this provision into the final bill while no one was looking. This bill, S.1790, only had 8 Senators vote against it — four Republicans and four Democrats. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was one of the dissenters.

This bill would provide permanent residency and a pathway to citizenship to about 4,000 Liberian nationals. Without this provision passing, these Liberians would face deportation.

President Trump is expected to sign the NDAA into law when it comes to his desk. However, he was opposed to allowing these Liberians to stay in the U.S. Under the Deferred Enforced Departure program, the Liberians are allowed to stay in America, however.

Trump has made two attempts to end DED status for Liberians, with his most recent attempt dating back to March. Despite his threats, Trump extended the Liberians’ protective status in that same month.

If the NDAA becomes law of the land in its current form, the Liberians in question will receive citizenship. Not exactly the America First platform that voters signed up for in 2016.

Even nationalist commentator Tucker Carlson has noticed this devious aspect of the 2020 NDAA.

One Twitter user posted a video clip of Carlson attacking this bill:

“Tucker on the upcoming spending bill: ‘Thousands of Liberians from Liberia living in this country will get a special pathway to citizenship. Why? How did that happen? Don’t ask. It was never debated. You had no idea it was evening happening. This is your country. You didn’t know.’ “

 

Hopefully, Trump sniffs out the nasty part of this spending bill and sends it back to the Senate so that the amnesty provision is removed.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
