VICTORY: Charlie Kirk Now Opposes ‘Stapling Green Cards to Diplomas’ After Tucker/America First Push Back

The “America First” forces are winning.

Published

Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk has been under siege at his “Culture War” events throughout the country for his support of mass immigration as well as other issues.

Kirk is feeling the heat and has adjusted one of his stances under the pressure from “America First” forces. Kirk rebuked his previous stance of giving green cards to any immigrant who obtains a U.S. college diploma during an appearance on the University of Florida campus on Tuesday night.

“Those laws might make you uncomfortable. Those laws you might disagree with, but illegally entering into the United States is not obeying our laws, and it’s been said once, and it’s been said twice, and should be said again, if you break the laws entering into our country, what’s to say you’re not going to break the laws while you’re in our country?” Kirk asked to applause.

“By the way, this is both sides that have contributed to this, and what it does is it erodes the fabric and the tradition of constitutional law in our country, and it’s very… it’s a very big problem, and it’s not just illegal immigration,” Kirk added.

This is when Kirk readied his capitulation in the hopes that it would keep the army of self-described Groypers in the audience at bay.

“I’m going to do something that not everyone in politics is comfortable doing, but I’m going to say I was wrong about something, and this is something I wish more people did,” Kirk explained.

“I said something a couple weeks ago that was not an opinion I still currently hold where I said something about F-1 Visas where I said that F-1 Visas should be given out basically to every single person who goes through the college education system. I was wrong when I said that. I was wrong when I said that,” Kirk said to massive applause.

“Part of being 26 and traveling the country is I hear lots of different opinions. What I was trying to say, and I didn’t say it, is I want the most qualified people to come to into our country, to come into America. I did not say that, instead, I basically said that… anyone who goes through the highly-corrupt college cartel then all of a sudden they should be deemed entry into the United States,” Kirk added.

The entirety of his response can be seen here:

Kirk caved on the issue after FOX News host Tucker Carlson called his position out during the Monday edition of his program.

“There’s bipartisan consensus in Washington that we desperately need smart people from overseas to do the jobs that Americans are too badly educated to do. No reason to fix our schools, or make sure higher education is serious and non-frivolous, we can just import people from countries that take education seriously, and that’s what we do,” Carlson explained.

“You probably haven’t even heard of the F-1 optional practical training program, but in just four years from 2009-2013, that program replaced nearly half a million American jobs,” he added. “That program allows foreign students who study in American universities to stay in the country after they graduate. In other words, we’re just going to staple a green card to their diploma. You’ve probably heard that phrase recently.”

“How’s that for America Last?” Carlson quipped.

The clip can be seen here:

While Kirk hopes that his surrender will get the “America First” forces off of his back, he is sorely mistaken. Conservative pundit Michelle Malkin smells Kirk’s fear, and is demanding for him to take an even stronger position on immigration.

Based on tonight’s pointed questioning at Kirk’s event, it does not appear that the Groypers are going to take it any easier on him because he modified this position. Until Kirk completely disavows Conservative Inc. and his organization adopts a consistent “America First” platform, he can expect the same type of treatment as he visits campuses nationwide.

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE

CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.

Published

on

Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.

According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.

It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.

Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.

If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.

Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
