NBC is a political bully, and they should hear from their viewers that it is not acceptable. I am not a fan of the Miss USA pageant, but just because the owner of the pageant is Donald Trump, does not give a network the right to pull airing the program. Apparently NBC didn't like Mr Trump's stand on immigration, so they decided to pull the airing of pageant.
Trump has also lost contracts with various vendors, and the mayor of New York City is reviewing all contracts with the Billionaire.
Donald Trump may not be the kind of candidate you would vote for, but he is a litmus test for how a political candidate must weigh his/her words in today's politically correct world. Here is what Trump said that is drawing all the attention and criticism.
"Immigrants from Mexico are “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.” He also maintained the notion there should be a wall along the southern border of the U.S.
When we have illegals coming across the Southern border how do we know what they are bringing? If one checks the statistics, Trump is not all wrong in making that statement.
The 23 percent criminal traffic offenders figure is only part of the overall picture. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, another 23 percent, more than 43,000 illegal aliens, were convicted of drug offenses. The violent crime category of assault, robbery, sexual assault, and family offenses comes to 12 percent. The non-violent crime grouping of larceny, fraud, and burglary totaled seven percent, and on the list goes — equaling 100 percent of illegal aliens who have been through the criminal justice system and inflicted thousands to millions in cost per alien on the system, for issues having nothing to do with their illegal entry into the country.
There is more:
An FBI crime study also shows heavy illegal alien involvement in criminal activity revealed these statistics:
- 75 percent of those on the most wanted criminals list in Los Angeles, Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.
- One quarter of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals, as are more than 40 percent of all inmates in Arizona and 48 percent in New Mexico jails.
- Over 53 percent of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.
- 63 percent of cited drivers in Arizona have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that number, 97 percent are illegal aliens. 66 percent of cited drivers in New Mexico have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 66 percent, 98 percent are illegal aliens.
The mayor of New York city was quick to condemn Trump's remarks.
"Donald Trump's remarks were disgusting and offensive, and this hateful language has no place in our city," de Blasio said in a statement Wednesday. "Trump's comments do not represent the values of inclusion and openness that define us as New Yorkers. Our Mexican brothers and sisters make up an essential part of this city's vibrant and diverse community, and we will continue to celebrate and support New Yorkers of every background."
The problem with illegal immigration is that no one knows who is coming across the borders into this country. No one. It is not until they commit a crime do we begin to see there is a problem with some of the folks that are here. Now, it is true, many illegals are hard working, and have come here to make a new life for themselves and their families, but there is also a high percentage of people that have come to find new opportunities to commit crimes. Anyone can do the research on the statistics, yet we continue to allow the Southern border to be like a screen door, letting in people who can not be documented.
Donald Trump is a lightening rod, and we see how quickly people will line up against issues they find offensive. Yet offensive or not, what is the truth? Did Trump say something that is not true? Did he make up the idea that bad people are entering this country and are committing crimes against our citizenry? No, there is a problem, and Trump was must making a statement to that fact.
There is something more sinister going on here, and it is called the spirit of our age. Truth no longer is relevant to any discussion today. Facts have lost their place at the table of content, and common sense is a lost art among our society. The Bible tells us that there is a movement of evil that will prevail in the last days. That movement is not an organization, but it is a spirit of thought that captures the minds of humanity. John the Apostle described that movement for us.
1 John 2:18
18Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.
Is it any wonder that the Supreme Court made the decision it did? Just wait, with the spirit of antichrist in full operation throughout the world, all foundations will be shaken, and false foundations will replace them.
So what do we do as believers? Keep your mind stayed on Him, it will be your best defense against this movement of deception. Ground yourself in Christ, He is the only secure meaning of truth we have left.
