The Majority of Asylum Seekers at the Southern Border are Mexicans

Published

on

So far, the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy has been a success.

The number of Central American migrants applying for asylum has dropped considerably because of how asylum seekers must now wait in Mexico for their cases to be heard instead of being released into the U.S.

While the wave of asylum seekers from Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua have fallen, Mexican nationals have replaced them. Many of these Mexican asylum seekers are claiming that cartel violence is getting worse and they are fleeing in fear for their lives.

Regardless of their reasoning, Mexicans now comprise half of asylum seekers at the southern border according to a report from PJ Media. Given that Mexicans are not subject to the “Remain in Mexico” policy, the Trump administration has had to tackle this matter in a unique way.

American authorities are now using a policy known as “metering”, which admits relatively small numbers of Mexican asylum seekers on a daily basis. Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, declared that Mexican nationals requesting asylum in America could be moved to Guatemala instead of being allowed to wait in the United States for their asylum claim to be processed.

Whatever policy the Trump administration pursues, it’s very likely it will be challenged in court.

The White House is currently bogged down in court battles over policies limiting the flow of asylum seekers, which include requiring the migrants to first apply for refugee status in Mexico, or whatever country they decide to enter after they leave their country of origin, before requesting asylum in America.

The Ninth Circuit is currently considering arguments dealing with the constitutionality of the orders, after the Supreme Court ruled back in September that the remain in Mexico policy can stay in place as legal challenges progress

Last year more than 300,000 Central Americans arrived in Mexico illegally, with 80 percent of them heading to the U.S. border, according to Mexico’s interior minister, Olga Sánchez Cordero.

Former acting DHS secretary Kevin McAleenan stated last August that border crossings went down over the summer, with apprehensions falling 43 percent since May. Last May, arrests between ports of entry at the southern border rose for the fourth consecutive month to 132,887.

Although these are solid ways to stem the flow of the current mass migration waves afflicting the U.S., there will need to be more solid reform such as the construction of a wall and the abolition of certain migration magnets such as birthright citizenship and chain migration.

The immigration crisis America is facing is filled with tremendous political implications. Not addressing these matters head on will put the American nation-state on the brink of collapse and  potentially usher in an era of globalist government — a far cry from what the Founding Fathers had in mind for this country.

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.
