Arguably no issue has polarized voters more this 2016 election cycle than immigration, particularly illegal immigration, and whoever is elected president on November 8 will address this complex challenge and all its national security and economic dimensions.
Republican Donald Trump has made opposition to illegal immigration a centerpiece of his campaign, while Democrat Hillary Clinton supports offering unauthorized immigrants living in the shadows in United States a pathway to citizenship, if they fulfill certain restitution requirements, as part of a larger package reform measures.
In what has been often quoted throughout both the general election cycle and the primaries, when Donald Trump announced he was running for president, he claimed that Mexico was sending its worst people to America, some of which are rapists and drug smugglers. And, he has repeatedly stated that he intends to build a long wall along the southern border of the United States, and that the Mexican government would foot the bill. more >>
A number of Protestant churches in Austria have slammed a right-wing politician for using God's name in a campaign slogan, arguing that God shouldn't be used as a means to attack other people and cultures.
"God cannot be manipulated for personal intentions or political purposes," declared the joint statement of Protestant leaders as read by Bishop Michael Buenker.
"We consider that mentioning God for one's own political interests and using Him along with reference to the Christian West to indirectly attack other religions and cultures amounts to an abuse of His name and of religion in general," the statement continued, according to BBC News. more >>
A 39-year-old Ghanaian immigrant has been arrested by Italian police following a rampage on four churches in Rome this past weekend, where he demolished several Christian icons, and even tried to destroy a crucifix, before he was stopped by a priest.
Police are still investigating the motive behind the attack, Breitbart News reported, which began Friday evening at the Church of San Martino ai Monti, where the man broke a statue.
The suspect then went to the ancient Basilica of Santa Prassede, where he demolished several more statues of saints, purposefully smashing them to the ground and stamping on them. more >>
WASHINGTON — Human rights activists in 24 cities around the world protested outside Chinese embassies on Friday and delivered petitions calling on the Chinese government to stop killing North Korean defectors by repatriating them back to their home country.
While it is an offense punishable by death or imprisonment for North Korean citizens to defect from the country and the oppressive Kim regime, the Chinese government helps facilitate North Korea's crimes against humanity by refusing to grant North Korean defectors refugee status and by sending thousands of them back to North Korea knowing full well that they will be tortured, forced to do hard labor and even killed in political prison camps.
In 2014, a 400-page United Nations report extensively detailed the widespread torture and abuse that North Korea is responsible for and found that China is violating its responsibility under international human rights and refugee laws. more >>
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Hungary-born globalist billionaire George Soros have squared off on the issue of borders and immigration.
Orban is concerned for the spiritual and cultural survival of his nation and others in the European Union.
In a March speech, Orban decried the globalist political correctness that tries to forbid him and other European leaders from pointing out "that the masses arriving from other civilizations endanger our way of life, our culture, our customs and our Christian traditions." more >>
"Borders are the worst invention ever made by politicians," said European Union (EU) President Jean-Claude Juncker recently.
There are two striking errors in Juncker's view. First, borders are not a "worst invention." They are essential in a fallen world. Second, borders were not the "invention" of "politicians," but given by the world's Designer and Creator.
Juncker reflects a progressive-socialist utopian worldview that long ago rid itself of the niggling notion of God. It lost its reference point and bearings in a chaotic world. Feverishly trying to recover the Garden of Eden through constructing borderless utopia, Juncker and the progressivist globalists are giving us dystopia. more >>
