There is no doubt that the subject of Muslim immigration is now coming front and center in the debate on how much immigration is too much as was demonstrated by the fact that Fox’s star host, Megyn Kelly invited Gov. Bobby Jindal to explain himself on the subject.
Before getting to the exchange, I want to be clear that refugee resettlement is only a portion of US LEGAL immigration that is bringing thousands of Muslims to the US every month, but it has perhaps a disproportionate impact because the refugees’ hands are being held by the resettlement contractors which are guiding them to small cities and towns throughout the country. Also, the refugees’ start in America is fueled by the federal government (and state governments!) through welfare payments, healthcare, low-income housing and job counseling and training.
In addition to refugee resettlement….
We need to learn more about the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery’s contribution, as well as ‘Temporary Protected Status.’ Also, not to be overlooked are the Investor Visa programs which allow Muslims to enter the country as permanent residents where (as one example) they purchase ‘convenience stores’ (then they set up shop committing food stamp trafficking fraud).
Also, as I said at a meeting last evening, we need a qualified demographer to really nail down the numbers on how many are coming in to the US because, although a country, like Iran, is mostly a Muslim country, our refugees from Iran are mostly NOT Muslims.
And, frankly, there is no way to separate out the so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims and the Sharia-loving ones, so there is only one real solution and that is a MORATORIUM on Muslim migration (the Hijra) to America.
In April of 2013, Laura Ingraham called for a moratorium here, so the words have actually been uttered in public! Wouldn’t you love to see Laura go toe-to-toe with Megyn!
From George Rasley writing at Conservative HQ:
Louisiana’s principled limited government constitutional conservative Governor Bobby Jindal’s presidential aspirations got a major boost from an appearance on Fox News that many in the establishment panned, but that conservatives took as more evidence that Jindal is the only presidential candidate who understands the war that Islamists have declared on America and the West.
Jindal began his exchange with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly defending his remarks that U.S. citizenship rules should be updated to exclude Islamic radicals, such as the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood movement. “It is common sense to say we’re going to prioritize [among immigrants], and if you say you want to be American… we’re going to prioritize you over someone who doesn’t want to be American,” he said at a March 16 event hosted by the American Action Forum.
Under questioning from Kelly Jindal clarified that his comments only referred to “radical Muslims,” like those who “treat women as second-class citizens.”
“Why would I want to allow people who want to kill Americans to come to America?” he said.
Kelly responded that she thought it was “controversial” for the Governor to discriminate against anyone who believes in Islamic Sharia law.
“Who decides how far into Sharia law you have to be?” she asked. “Who decides who’s a radical Islamist and who’s just an Islamist?”
Jindal responded that as long as a person is not causing harm to another person, then they have a right to be in the U.S. They do not have the right, however, to come to the U.S. and impose certain strict beliefs like those regarding women and children, he said.
Jindal was immediately attacked the Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR) various other Muslim organizations dedicated to “understanding and acceptance” that have well documented* ties to the Muslim Brotherhood – a terrorist organization outlawed in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and dedicated to Islamic supremacism, terrorism as a means of achieving political objectives and spreading the misogynistic totalitarian ideology of Sharia.
According to documents seized by law enforcement and submitted as evidence in the largest terrorism finance trial in American history, the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is to wage a “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house…”
First, let’s dispense with the notion that there’s a difference between “radical” Islamists and “just an Islamist.” There is no difference, or if there is a difference it is merely one of timing, not objective.
And as long as mass legal (and illegal) immigration from Muslim countries continues unabated we are losing that war.
Endnote: Short of a moratorium if we could get the Somali, Iraqi and the soon-to-be-opened Syrian pipelines stopped we would be going a long way to staving off the colonization of American towns.
