Texas Catholics Want to Flood the Lone Star State with Third World Refugees, Governor Greg Abbott Says No!

Published

on

After Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced on January 10, 2020 that he will not be accepting refugees for resettlement in the state, Catholic organizations were infuriated by his decision.

Abbot’s decision made Texas the first state to reject refugee resettlement after President Donald Trump issued an executive order last year ordering governors to publicly say if they will accept refugees after June 2020.

As of now, governors in 42 states have declared that they wil bring in more refugees. Governors from the five remaining states — Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi and South Carolina — have yet to respond by the January 21, 2020.

Texas bishops were disappointed by Abbott’s course of action and urged him to reconsider. In a January 10 statement, the Texas Catholic Conference asserted that the move to “turn away refugees from the great state of Texas” was “deeply discouraging and disheartening.”

The conference claimed it “respects the governor” but declared that Abbott’s decision in this case was “simply misguided” due to how it denied “people who are fleeing persecution, including religious persecution, from being able to bring their gifts and talents to our state and contribute to the general common good of all Texans.”

In a letter he wrote to Pompeo, Abbott stressed the work Texas has done taking in refugees, saying that since fiscal year 2010 “more refugees have been received in Texas than any other state.”

“Texas has carried more than its share in assisting the refugee resettlement process and appreciates that other states are available to help with these efforts,” the letter stated.

Ashley Feasley, the Director of Policy for Migration and Refugee Services of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told Catholic News Service that Abbott’s decision is a “big deal” because the state has resettled 10% of refugees in the United States during the last decade.

She clarified that the move does not mean that refugees can’t visit the state. It just means they cannot be resettled there.

That decision, she said is troubling. First off, roughly 80% of the refugee cases are described as “follow to join.” In other words, these cases involve individuals who have been vetted, are looking to connect with a family member or friend in the community. Allowing them to resettle with people they already know is something resettlement agencies try to respect, she stated, because it helps with the settlement transition.

She also pointed out how Abbott’s decision, and others to come from remaining state governors who have made a decision on the matter, could be affected by a federal judge’s ruling on Trump’s order expected on January 17, 2020. The judge will be ruling on the lawsuit that three refugee resettlement organizations filed in an attempt to obtain a preliminary injunction to block the executive order.

Abbott, who is also a Catholic, should stand firm and not give in to the pressure that pro-mass migration organizations are placing on him. He should maintain his course as one of the most hardline governors on the issue of immigration.

Research Shows that U.S. Hispanics Reject the Ridiculous Label of “Latinx”

Published

on

Pew Research Center’s Hispanic trends found that Hispanics are categorically rejecting the label of “Latinx.”

The question of pan-ethnic labels to describe people with origins from Latin America and Spain has been a subject of discussion for decades. Over the decades there has been a consensus to label such people as Hispanic and Latino.

However, the political correctness crowd made sure to politicize these labels by introducing the new term Latinx, which is allegedly gender neutral and pan-ethnic. In the Spanish language, nouns, pronouns, and adjectives have feminine and masculine forms. This is way too much for politically correct activists in the West who want to export their politically correct ethos abroad.

That said, only a few Hispanics have embraced this politically correct flavor of the week. Of the U.S. adults who identify as Hispanic, only 23 percent of them have heard of the term Latinx.  A measly 3 percent indicated that they use the term to describe themselves, according to a bilingual survey of U.S. Hispanic adults carried out in December 2019 by the Pew Research Center.

Although only a quarter of U.S. Hispanics claim to have heard about the term Latinx, there is a clear generational gap between its usage among different subgroups. Young Hispanics, between the ages of 18 to 29, are the most likely to have heard of the term, with 42 percent of them being acquainted with the term, whereas 7 percent of those 65 or older have heard of the term.

College-educated Hispanics are more likely to have heard the term Latinx than individuals without a college education. Approximately 38 percent of college graduates have heard of Latinx, in addition to 31 percent of those with college experience. By contrast, only 14 percent of those with a high school diploma or less are acquainted with the label.

Additionally, U.S. born Hispanics are more likely than the foreign born to have heard the term (32 percent to 16 percent). Hispanics who mainly speak English or are bilingual are more likely than individuals who mainly speak Spanish to have heard of the term (29 percent for the former vs. 7 percent for the latter.)

Awareness of the term does not translate into overall usage. Of Hispanic women ages 18 to 29, only 14 percent of them use the term. On the other hand, 1 percent of Hispanic men of that age group use the term.

It’s good to hear that Hispanics are rejecting this politically concocted term. The gender wars that the Left is waging are meant to create disruption. The last thing we need in the U.S. is more divisiveness and social instability brought about by the PC mad scientists.
