If They Delete the Record, Then It Never Happened

The main character in Orwell’s Nineteen Eight-four was in charge of altering historic records. Obama White House Deleted Online Speeches About The Immigration Crisis Hours Before Trump Entered Office: Report.

The Obama administration deleted hundreds of speeches and statements on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website just hours before President Donald Trump officially entered office, according to research released Tuesday.

A collection of 190 transcripts of speeches on ICE’s website was deleted on Jan. 18 and late in the evening on Jan. 19, 2017, according to research conducted by the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan organization that advocates for government transparency. Statements made by high-ranking ICE officials regarding controversial immigration topics such as sanctuary cities, E-Verify, treatment of detainees, and other issues were included in the reported deletions.

Because history is only important if it servers The Party. Of the Left.

This Must Be a Sign of End-times. Or Something

Animal from Animal Magnetism has the surprising news as part of Animal’s Hump Day News.

HOLY CRAP! That notorious right-wing rag, the New York Times, has taken the official editorial position that there is, in fact, a crisis at our southern border. The article still argues against a border barrier and takes some cheap shots at President Trump but the underlying message is still yes, we need to do something.

People Are Worried About the Wrong Thing

Ebola is bad, but it isn’t likely to get here by way of illegal immigration. It takes too long for people to get here that way. 20 Illegal Aliens from Congo Being “Monitored for EBOLA” at U.S. Border.

TB on the other hand is a real problem.

“TB is an ongoing issue in the state of Texas,’ [Laredo Health Director Dr. Hector Gonzalez] explained. “Between Texas, California, and New York, we have 50 percent of the cases of TB and the border has the most. Brownsville has the biggest number of cases.”

Because there is TB, Multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB), and Extremely drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB). Regular TB costs about 100 bucks to cure, if you can give people medicine over time and KNOW they will take it. The other forms require hospitalization, quarantine and whole lot more drugs.

I Like It. I Can Get Behind This Plan

And Trump is Right. The Sanctuary Cities should love a bunch of illegal aliens. Trump doubles down on plan to ship migrants to sanctuary cities, says ‘Radical Left’ should be happy.

President Trump responded to reports Friday that his administration proposed releasing immigrant detainees in sanctuary cities by not only confirming the plan but saying it remains under “strong” consideration.

If we have to send them somewhere, aside from back home, then I think San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, wherever should be pleased at the extra expense.

Billions in Tax Money for Illegal Aliens

Of course they get tax refunds. Tax loophole costs billions. From NBC 13 in Indianapolis.

Millions of illegal immigrants are getting a bigger tax refund than you. Eyewitness News shows a massive tax loophole that provides billions of dollars in tax credits to undocumented workers and, in many cases, people who have never stepped foot in the United States. And you are paying for it!

This is completely insane. But then most things the government is doing these days is insane. (Have you been affected by the .gov shutdown? I haven’t.)

Go read the whole thing, it isn’t too long. (Hat tip to Trigger Reset.)
