IN WAKE OF ASSAULTS ON TRUMP SUPPORTERS AT MN RALLY, MEDIA FRET WHETHER SOMALIS FEEL ‘WELCOME’

In Wake Of Assaults On Trump Supporters At MN Rally, Media Fret Whether Somalis Feel 'Welcome'

Whether Trump supporters were made to feel “welcome” wasn’t a question the Star Tribune felt was worth asking

Chris Menahan | Information Liberation – OCTOBER 15, 2019

A host of Trump supporters were violently assaulted by antifa mobs on Thursday night but Minnesota’s largest newspaper’s main concern is whether President Trump’s visit made Somali refugees feel “welcome.”

“Trump supporters are literally fleeing the event after it ended as protestors are waiting around attacking attendees as they leave the arena,” Blaze TV’s Elijah Schaffer commented after capturing one of the mob’s assaults on film. “It is not safe in Minneapolis any longer for Trump supporters.”

Additional video showed Trump supporters being sucker-punched and spit on in the streets.

The Star Tribune chose to either brush over or ignore these assaults.

Whether Trump supporters were made to feel “welcome” wasn’t a question the Star Tribune felt was worth asking, but whether Trump made Somali refugees feel “welcome” is a question they’ve asked twice now in three days.

From the Star Tribune, Oct 12, “Somali-Minnesotans wonder about their welcome after Trump’s speech”:

By Faiza Mahamud and Jessie Van Berkel

Abubakar Abdi skipped his usual after-work stop to visit friends at the local Somali mall on Thursday, heading to his Minneapolis home instead to catch President Donald Trump’s speech.

As he watched, the 22-year-old IT specialist said he was taken aback by the loud boos at the packed campaign rally when Trump mentioned Somalis.

“As you know, for many years, leaders in Washington brought large numbers of refugees to your state from Somalia without considering the impact on schools and communities and taxpayers,” Trump said at the rally. “I promise you that as president, I would give local communities a greater say in refugee policy and put in place enhanced vetting and responsible immigration control, and I’ve done that since coming into office.”

Abdi, born and raised in Minnesota, said the president’s words and the crowd’s reaction left him wondering: “What if my former classmates were among the ones booing? What if it was my former teachers booing?”

“I didn’t know we were hated like that,” he said. “Donald Trump is one man, but what scares me is the amount of support he has.”

Minnesota is home to the nation’s largest Somali population, numbering 57,000 in the latest census, though the current number is believed to be higher. Trump’s remarks about refugee resettlement and about U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, whom he called “a disgrace to our country” during his speech, stung and angered many Somali-Minnesotans, with some using words such as “dangerous,” “disgusting,” and “racist.”

The negative portrayal of people of Somali descent is making it harder for some to go about their lives without fear […]

Try walking down the street in a Trump hat.

[…] Trump’s visit also spurred anxiety and fear for many Somalis here.

The nation’s largest Muslim civil rights group and local Somali-elected leaders were sounding the alarm about the long-term implications of Trump’s visit, suggesting it could spark a fresh surge in hate crimes in Minnesota — home to the nation’s largest Somali community.

“We’re also definitely concerned about his anti-Muslim and anti-Somali language,” said Jaylani Hussein, who leads the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which had urged Muslim-Americans to join protests Thursday.

[…] State Rep. Mohamud Noor, DFL-Minneapolis, said it’s one thing dealing with Trump’s anti-Somali slurs and his hateful posts on social media about immigrants and refugees. But his visit to Minneapolis struck fear close to home, Noor said.

[…] State Rep. Hodan Hassan, DFL-Minneapolis, said she opposed Trump’s visit, asserting that it could have negative blowback on the community.

Hassan and Noor, both Somalis, said they had been going around the community to ease people’s fears. The two now plan to hold community conversations.

“Trump, his hate and his bigotry is not welcome in Minnesota,” Hassan said. “The Somali community here is strong. We know who we are, we know we are a valuable community here and we just want to make sure everyone is safe and protected.”

To address the fear and anxiety in the community, Minnesota Somali leaders said they are working with the FBI, have hired armed security guards to patrol Somali-owned businesses and are urging people to stay vigilant, particularly Muslim women who wear a hijab.

You gotta love how they explicitly say Trump is not welcome.

The Star Tribune publishes nearly this same exact article over and over and over again (and always in the wake of Somali terrorist attacks). Meanwhile, mob assaults carried out by Somalis and antifa rioters assaulting Trump supporters in the streets barely merit a mention.

VIDEOS: Antifa Sucker-Punch Female Trump Supporter Leaving Rally In Minneapolis

New videos have emerged showing antifa rioters sucker punching both a female and a male Trump supporter as they left President Trump’s 2020 campaign rally in Minneapolis on Thursday night.

The new footage was shared by Alpha News MN:

The same rioters appear to have been filmed participating in two unprovoked assaults:

VICE News also shared video of a Trump supporter getting spit on by a rioter during an interview:

VICE had at least two cameras (possibly three) filming this incident but their video doesn’t show the assailant. Many wondered whether or not VICE intentionally spliced it out to protect their antifa allies.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey praised police for their “professionalism” and “excellence” in an email sent to senior police staff on Friday, according to the Star Tribune.

“Those who were tasked with keeping our residents and visitors safe last night did so with excellence,” Frey wrote. “The circumstances were challenging, and they rose to the occasion.”

Frey chose to ignore the assaults and instead criticized Trump in column for the Washington Post on Saturday for allegedly not paying police enough for their “protection.”

“As mayor, I have a responsibility to protect free speech, even from a president whose rhetoric and policies I find reprehensible,” Frey said. “However, it is not my responsibility to subsidize it.”

 

TUCKER PREDICTS WHAT AMERICA WILL LOOK LIKE IF DEMOCRATS WIN

Tucker Predicts What America Will Look Like If Democrats Win

Fox News host Tucker Carlson devoted a Tuesday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment to describe what America will look like if Democrats regain control in 2020

Daily Caller – OCTOBER 9, 2019

Fox News host Tucker Carlson devoted a Tuesday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment to describe what America will look like if Democrats regain control in 2020.

The segment featured clips of various Democratic 2020 presidential candidates and other prominent Democrats explaining their views on key issues from marijuana legalization to gun control to even the abolishment of prisons.

WATCH:

After a segment featuring Democratic views on drug legalization, Carlson set his sights on New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who this week tweeted her belief that prisons should eventually be abolished.

“Of course, there were no prisons before racists in America thought them up,” Carlson quipped. “So with no more prisons, presumably that will mean no more prisoners, right? So with all of those felons back on the street and in your neighborhood – hey, felons – you may suddenly be a little bit concerned about protecting yourself and your family, but tough. In Democratic America, self-defense will be banned because they are taking your guns.”

The Fox News host then played a clip of Democrats talking about taking so-called assault weapons.

“By the way, that’ll make home invasions a little tougher to deal with,” said Carlson. “Lots of luck with that. Let’s hope you don’t get assaulted and need to go to a hospital, because in Democratic America you might find the hospitals a bit overcrowded. Why? Well, the left is giving free health care to the rest of the planet.”

Cue clips of Democrats supporting universal health care, even for illegal aliens.

“Raise your hand if you don’t want a single normal person to even consider voting for you ever,” said the Fox News host. “Free health care for illegal aliens. That’s quite an idea. How’s our already broke country going into pay for that? Here’s a calculator. You figure it out. But don’t even think about heading to a bar to drown your sorrows with a cocktail, and a steak. In the America of tomorrow, that will be banned too.”

Acting DHS Secretary Mobbed by Angry Leftist Protesters, Forced Off Stage at Migration Event

“Cancel culture” is out of control.

By Shane Trejo

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan was forced to cancel his speech at an immigration conference in Washington D.C. on Monday after being shouted down by a mob of angry left-wing protesters.

“When immigrants are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!” the mob yelled before McAleenan left the stage, unable to deliver his keynote address at the Georgetown University Law Center.

The event was hosted by the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) and Catholic Legal Immigration Network. The organizers were troubled that leftists disrupted the event and prevented McAleenan’s speech from being heard.

“We very much regret that the keynote address Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan was to deliver today at the 16th annual Immigration Law and Policy Conference was disrupted by protestors and could not occur,” MPI president Andrew Seele said, adding that “we very much regret” what took place.

“In a democracy, it is important to hear from all sides on public policy issues, including from those who are instrumental in developing and implementing policy, whether or not we agree with them, and MPI remains committed to that belief,” Seele added.

“By drowning out the secretary’s remarks, the protestors deprived immigration attorneys, service providers, journalists, advocates, business leaders, law students, and many others in the public who were in the audience from hearing his point of view and engaging in a meaningful dialogue,” he continued.

Georgetown University offered lip service after being unwilling or unable to properly provide security to the event hosted on their campus.

“We share our partners’ regret that the audience did not get to hear from the Secretary and engage in a dialogue through the Q&A session that was scheduled to occur following his remarks. Georgetown Law is committed to free speech and expression and the ability of speakers to be heard and engage in dialogue,” the notoriously liberal university wrote in a statement.

The left-wing mob also brought up the names of migrants that died during or after they made the dangerous trek up to the United States, including 16-year-old Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez who lost his life in a south Texas detention center.

Strangely, the protesters did not mention the names of the illegal immigrants responsible for the ongoing rape spree occurring in Montgomery County, MD – a sanctuary jurisdiction:

In what has become a disturbingly familiar story over the past couple months, another illegal alien has been charged with rape in the sanctuary jurisdiction of Montgomery County, Md.

Wilder Hernandez-Nolasco, 21, of Silver Spring is accused of raping a six-year-old girl. He was apprehended and charged with the crime last week, and faces 155 years in prison if he is ultimately convicted of the heinous act.

Hernandez-Nolasco, an illegal immigrant who is a Honduran national, reportedly threatened his child victim that he would ground her for “100 days” if she told anyone about the vicious attack. Law enforcement claims he admitted to committing the rape, and he committed sexual assault against the child on more than one occasion.

This is at least the ninth time that there has been an illegal immigrant charged with a sex crime in the sanctuary jurisdiction of Montgomery County since July 25. The area has become a hot bed for illegal aliens to commit vicious sex crimes with law enforcement being ordered by county officials not to comply with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The Department of Homeland Security expressed their dismay about McAleenan being forced off the stage.

“Unfortunately the Acting Secretary and the audience did not get the opportunity to engage in a robust dialogue this morning due to the disruptions of a few activists,” the DHS wrote in a statement about the display.

This is apart of the growing “cancel culture,” a Stalin-esque movement from the Left to shut down anything that they feel is contrary to their Marxist worldview. Michelle Malkin, the conservative founder of #StandWithICE, was also targeted by these repressive, anti-American forces recently.

Heading into next year’s presidential election, the Left will only become more unhinged as they grow more desperate in their efforts to prevent America from being great again.

 

VIDEO: JULIÁN CASTRO ESCORTS ILLEGALS INTO AMERICA – BORDER PATROL DEPORTS THEM IMMEDIATELY

Video: Julián Castro Escorts Illegals Into America - Border Patrol Deports Them Immediately

Democrat stunt fails miserably

  – OCTOBER 8, 2019

Democrat presidential hopeful and former Obama Cabinet member Julián Castro escorted a group of 12 illegal immigrants from Mexico into Texas on Monday, only for them to be instantly sent back to Mexico.

The botched publicity stunt took place near Brownsville, Texas where Castro walked across a bridge from Matamoros, Mexico with eight LGBT illegal immigrants and a deaf Salvadoran woman, accompanied by her three family members.

The presidential candidate was attempting to help the group claim asylum in the United States, but the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy ensures border crossers aren’t released into America and instead are to remain in the country until their asylum pleas are adjudicated.

With nearly half of illegal immigrants failing to appear at their court hearings in 2017, this policy helps the U.S. sort out legitimate asylum claims from those who are taking advantage of our failed border policies.

However, Castro says “cruelty is the point” for Donald Trump.

The Democrat also claimed Trump’s “agenda is killing people – and it’s on purpose.”

Watch below as Castro speaks with CBP agents after accompanying the group across the international bridge.

Hours later, the Texas Civil Rights Project released a statement saying all 12 individuals were sent back to Mexico.

In July, another Democrat presidential candidate, Cory Booker, escorted five illegal immigrants across the border in a similar stunt.

Julián Castro Calls For ‘Not Only Impeachment, but Removal’ of Trump

Democrat presidential hopeful and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro called for “not only impeachment, but removal” of President Donald Trump in a recent interview.

Castro’s remarks came during NPR’s “Off Script” series with host Lulu Garcia-Navarro, where he was questioned on an array of subjects including his campaign and impeachment.

“I believe that Trump is trying to do to Joe Biden what he did to Hillary Clinton, that he’s trying to take a public servant that has served honorably over the years and muddy their reputation with false accusations that, in this case, have been investigated,” Castro told Garcia-Navarro.

“I disagree with Vice President Biden on immigration, on health care, as people saw at the last debate, and a number of other issues,” Castro added. “But I believe that he’s fundamentally an honest and honorable man.”

The interview then shifted towards impeachment, and Castro was asked whether he believed “it’s the best thing for the country.”

“Well, I believe the best thing for the country would be not only impeachment, but removal,” Castro replied. “This president has violated his oath of office. He has abused his power. People can read that in that transcript.”

Castro then claimed Trump had used his position as president to “boost himself” and his own interests.

“In unprecedented ways, he has used the office of the presidency to boost himself and put his own self-interest above the national interest,” Castro asserted. “How much more evidence do people need that this man should not be anywhere near the Oval Office?”

Later in the interview, Castro was pressed on poor polling numbers for his campaign out of Nevada.

“The most recent poll in Nevada showed not good news for you,” Garcia-Navarro told Castro. “You did not have great numbers – in fact, close to 0%. It’s a state with a lot of Latinos. That’s got to have hurt to see that you didn’t do as well as you may have hoped.”

Castro responded and claimed, “Nevada has gotten very little attention.”

“But is it sending a signal to you that perhaps it might be time to move on to something else?” Garcia-Navarro asked Castro.

“Not at all. Not at all,” Castro responded. “We have four months until Iowa votes and 4 1/2 months until Nevada caucuses. And so we’re going to keep working hard in this campaign.”

TRUMP SIGNS ORDER TO PREVENT TAXPAYERS FROM SUBSIDIZING HEALTH CARE FOR IMMIGRANTS

Trump Signs Order To Prevent Taxpayers From Subsidizing Health Care For Immigrants

Move meant to reduce dependency on government benefits

Jason Hopkins | Daily Caller News Foundation – OCTOBER 6, 2019

The Trump administration will require many future immigrant applicants to prove they can afford health insurance, marking the White House’s latest move to restrict immigration from those who could become a financial burden on the government.

President Donald Trump, invoking his executive authority, issued a proclamation Friday evening that will prohibit the entry of immigrants applying for visas unless they prove they can obtain health insurance within 30 days of entering the U.S. or otherwise indicate they can afford their own medical care.

“The United States has a long history of welcoming immigrants who come lawfully in search of brighter futures. We must continue that tradition while also addressing the challenges facing our healthcare system, including protecting both it and the American taxpayer from the burdens of uncompensated care,” Trump said in the proclamation. “Continuing to allow entry into the United States of certain immigrants who lack health insurance or the demonstrated ability to pay for their healthcare would be detrimental to these interests.”

The directive, published on the White House’s website, will go into effect on Nov. 3.

Notably, the subsidized health care plans found on Obamacare exchanges will not qualify as eligible forms of insurance under the new rule.

“While lawful immigrants qualify for [Affordable Care Act] subsidies, they’ll be stuck in a catch-22 because subsidized coverage does not qualify as insurance under the proclamation,” Larry Levitt, executive vice president for health policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation, said Friday on Twitter.

The order will apply to any foreign national who applies for an immigrant visa abroad and cannot obtain health insurance within 30 days of entering the U.S. or does not have the financial ability to cover their own medical care. Those with ties to family members in the U.S. are not exempt from the rule. However, asylees and refugees will not be impacted, and neither will non-citizen children of U.S. citizens. Those who have already obtained immigrant visas also will not have worry.

The health care proclamation is Trump’s latest move to restrict immigration from those who are likely to become dependent on U.S. government benefits.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) acting Director Ken Cuccinelli, for example, rolled out a directive in August that takes into account an immigrant’s use of government benefits when deciding whether or not to grant them permanent status. Known as the “public charge” rule, the directive makes it more difficult for immigrants to obtain permanent status if they have used any number of public benefits, such as Medicaid, food stamps, Section 8 housing, cash assistance or other programs.

“Immigrants who enter this country should not further saddle our healthcare system, and subsequently American taxpayers, with higher costs,” Trump wrote in his proclamation.

 

Elizabeth Warren Endorses AOC’s Plan Allowing Illegal Immigrants to Collect Welfare

By Mark Alan

Elizabeth Warren is the first 2020 presidential candidate to endorse freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s new “Just Society” plan. The controversial legislative package of six bills would allow illegal immigrants to collect welfare. Some political insiders has accused Warren of disingenuously supporting the plan in an attempt to gain an endorsement from Ocasio-Cortez.

Two of the six separate bills would prohibit the federal government from denying welfare benefits to illegal immigrants and convicted felons. The legislation would also control the rate of yearly rent increases for housing, restructure federal poverty guidelines, and introduce a variety of new factors to determine how federal contracts will be awarded.

Perhaps even more controversial than allowing illegal immigrants to collect welfare, the legislation would seemingly establish health care, housing, and access to healthy food as government-provided rights. Unsurprisingly, Republicans have condemned the legislation.

Warren, however, isn’t backing down from her support of the proposal. “It’s going to take big, structural change to tackle poverty and inequality in the U.S., and [AOC’s] “A Just Society” is just the type of bold, comprehensive thinking we’ll need to get it done,” Warren wrote on Twitter.

Pelosi Says Trump Impeachment Necessary to ‘Repair, Heal Country’

Top Dem reveals fear Trump could damage globalist agenda beyond repair

By Dan Lyman – Oct 4, 2019

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) revealed that Democrats are working to impeach President Trump in an effort to derail his reelection bid.

Pelosi claimed that Trump could do “irreparable” damage to the United States, which could indicate that globalists fear the president is effectively dismantling their agenda.

Asked by Good Morning America anchor and Democrat operative George Stephanopoulos whether she would continue moving towards impeachment if it affected Trump’s re-election bid positively, Pelosi claimed she harbored no politically biased motives.

“But I will say this,” Pelosi continued. “The re-election of President Donald Trump would do irreparable damage to the United States. We have some serious repair and healing to do in our country for what he’s done so far. I’m not sure — two terms, it might be irreparable.”

In the same interview, Pelosi was asked if Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) had run afoul when he recited a ‘parody transcript’ of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a Congressional hearing last week.

“I want the American people to know what that phone call was about, I want them to hear it — so yeah, it’s fair,” Pelosi said. “It’s sad. It’s using the president’s own words.”

Stephanopoulos interjected, saying, “Those weren’t the president’s words, it was an interpretation of the president’s words. They’re saying he made this up.”

“He didn’t make it up,” Pelosi responded.

Schiff admitted to fabricating the phony transcript, saying, “My summary of the president’s call was meant to be at least part in parody.”

President Trump has since insinuated Schiff may have committed treason, asking why he hasn’t been “brought up on charges for fraudulently making up a statement and reading it to Congress as if this statement, which was very dishonest and bad for me, was directly made by the President of the United States?”
