VDARE Suing Mayor of Colorado Springs After Police Protection Pulled from Event

The event had to be cancelled after the mayor’s office pulled public services.

VDARE, a non-profit organization fighting illegal immigration and abuse of the legal immigration system in the United States, is suing the mayor of Colorado Springs, Colorado after he pulled city services for VDARE’s private event.

“Mayor [John] Suthers’s statement made clear that Colorado Springs would not provide police protection to a lawful private gathering.  He made plain that his reason for this blatant discrimination was VDARE’s exercise of its First Amendment right to advocate for changes to America’s immigration policies,” VDARE’s attorney Randy Corporon told Big League Politics. 

After Suthers pulled fire and police, the venue was forced to cancel the event, and VDARE was effectively de-platformed.

“This was a flagrant violation of VDARE’s First Amendment rights. And it is especially troubling for those of us who support the constitutionally protected rights of all groups, whether controversial, favored or disfavored in the eyes of governmental authorities or the public, to peacefully assemble and share ideas,” Corporon said.

Corporon drew comparisons between VDARE’s treatment and the treatment of violent, disruptive, and often criminal groups like Antifa, who receive public accommodations every day, despite their penchant for causing chaos.

“Indeed, we see government officials in other jurisdictions, such as Portland, Oregon in October of 2018, aggressively and at significant taxpayer expense, providing government services to support and protect radical, violent, disruptive groups like Antifa as they literally take over city streets,” he said.

Suthers’s office became flustered when BLP called for comment. They directed us to a spokesperson who never returned our comment request.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle

This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.

Published

It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.

Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.

Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.

Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.

The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
