The Center for Law and Justice (ACLG) has detailed the “does and does not” of the President’s immigration order. The liberal media has spun this, as usual, into a humanitarian issue. It is far from such.
On January 27, 2017, President Donald Trump entered an Executive Order that (1) suspends immigrant and nonimmigrant entry from 7 countries of particular concern; (2)pauses the entire U.S. refugee program for 120 days; and (3) prioritizes claims of people seeking refugee status due to religious persecution from countries where their religion is a minority. Importantly, nothing in the Order bans the entry of Muslims because they are Muslims or even identifies any particular religion or faith. Nor does the text of the order violate the Constitution.
Here are the key points of the Order that impact immigration (not refugee acceptance):
Relying on authority and procedures set forth in 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12), the Order suspends for 90 days the entry of people from “countries of particular concern” (currently Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia – all countriesalready designated as such during President Obama’s Administration). Sec. 3(c). Among other reasons, this 90-day pause is “to ensure that adequate standards are established to prevent infiltration by foreign terrorists or criminals.” Id. Certain diplomatic and governmental visa holders are exempted.
The Order also requires a “determination of the information needed for adjudications and a list of countries that do not provide adequate information, within 30 days”; Department of State (DOS) to request such information from all foreign governments; and a recommendation of countries whose nationals should be prohibited entry due to a country’s failure to provide the information. Sec. 3.
And here are the key points of the Order that impact the United States’ acceptance of refugees:
The Order pauses the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for 120 days, during which the program will be reviewed “to determine what additional procedures should be taken to ensure that those approved for refugee admission do not pose a threat to the security and welfare of the United States, and shall implement such additional procedures.” Sec. 5(a).
The Order also “prioritize[s] refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality.” Sec. 5(b).
The Order suspends the acceptance of Syrian refugees as “detrimental to the interests of the United States” until “sufficient changes” have been made to the refugee program. Sec. 5(c).
The Order sets the overall refugee cap at 50,000, Sec. 5(d), much closer to normal refugee limits before the Obama Administration dramatically increased the number last year. The President clearly has the discretionary authority to make this adjustment.
The Order states the President’s policy that State and local jurisdictions should have “a role in the process of determining the placement or settlement in their jurisdictions of aliens eligible to be admitted to the United States as refugees.” Sec. 5(e).
The Order also requires a “determination of the information needed for adjudications and a list of countries that do not provide adequate information, within 30 days”; DOS to request such information from all foreign governments; and a recommendation of countries whose nationals should be prohibited entry due to a country’s failure to provide the information. Sec. 3.
The Order also grants the appropriate government agencies the authority to grant exceptions to these policies, on a case-by-case basis. This ensures that when exceptions need to be made, they can be.
Finally some sanity coming for the 115th Legislature. Both the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Muslim Brotherhood getting called out for what they are. The time is now to stop the onslaught of this hijra or migration.

This is another reason that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) needs to be called out. They spew vile, unverified or investigated reports and choose to report what fits their leftist agenda. These reports make there way into the law enforcement briefings and become policy. Vilifying innocent public servants that are gathered to speak and teach about our Constitution.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO SUE THESE EVIL LEFTISTS
This is the “Enemy from Within”.
At least 2,000 educators around the country reported racist slurs and other derogatory language leveled against white students in the first days after Donald Trump was elected president. But the group that surveyed the teachers didn’t publish the results in its report on Trump-related “hate crimes.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center partnered with the American Federation of Teachers, which formally endorsed Hillary Clinton, to circulate the questionnaire among its 1.6 million mostly Democratic members. The survey was sent out to K-12 teachers and administrators who subscribe to its “Teaching Tolerance” newsletter.
How is it that our nation’s agencies actually listen to this crap from the Southern Policy Law Center? This is another outrageous spewing of misdirection of the facts and truth about the real threats that face our country. Vilifying our Veterans and Oath Keepers is just as insane.
JOIN IN SUPPORT OF OUR LAWSUIT AGAINST THE SPLC.

Yeah, the truth is hard to swallow. Especially when it is being espoused by such an anti-american org as SPLC. Excuse me, I just pucked even saying the words SPLC. This is just another of the anti-american hit pieces that cause Americans to be vilified because they seek to keep America safe. WAKE UP AMERICA, you are being lulled into believing that we are different than the rest of the world and somehow we can live side by side with those that hate everything about our culture and way of life. Just look what happened to the Coptic people, who still attempt to live amongst the evil. Are you ready to stand up and fight those that wish to kill you for your belief?? Probably not, you are lulled into believing that the SPLC is your voice and that we can sing Kumbaya as we skip along our way to the market. AWAKEN to the fact that we are a free people.
SECURE the BORDER
ENFORCE the LAW
Here is a great piece that explains why we will be in civil war. The left as we know it is seething and chomping at the bit to let loose their aggression. What better reason than the loss of the election and the ability to push the conservatives to the brink of using the government to quell the upheaval.
“We the PEOPLE” must quell any resistance to the Republic.
You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke!
Here we are again, the Southern Poverty Law Center(SPLC), spewing the spin on statistics and creating another report of the atrocities against muslims. I can only imagine which agency will pick up these so-called facts and weave it into their rhetoric about ordinary Americans whom are concerned about the Global Jihad. Creating the false impression that Americans are racist and hateful and that muslims are peaceful and just want to live their lives. Well Marc Potok, we Americans want to live our lives in peace and not have to give up our way of life to appease any group.
AMERICAN BEDROCK FOUNDATION calls on the SPLC to recant its hateful rhetoric towards Americans.
AMERICAN BEDROCK FOUNDATION stands with any whom have been slandered by the likes of this hard-left organization.
Here is a prime example of a group of law abiding, currently and formerly serving, Military, Law Enforcement, First Responders, Firefighters, Politicians, to name a few, being thrown under the bus by the vilifying words from the SPLC and others. This so called American advocacy organization goes along, unchecked and un-vetted, spewing its venom with a very, very broad brush. They have became the go to agency for hate and extremist alerts. They continue to vilify any and all groups that attempt to stop the Left’s agenda.
As you know, American Bedrock Foundation has lent its time and talent to the NJ Oath Keepers to assist their effort to remind the men and women whom serve, that the Oath they swore was to the Constitution, not the company commander.
The order of attack is not as important as the amount of groups that are being vilified and cast down upon by this complicit mainstream media. Using the likes of reports from the SPLC and ADL they have been lulled into passing on the rhetoric instead of investigating these reports.
We have the NJOHSP, New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, publishing on its website that Oath Keepers are a threat to the state. Where is the threat? Are they threatened by the Oath Keepers teaching of the constitution? Their support of Law Enforcement? Their placement of billboards, reminding those that serve that the “Oath” is to the Constitution? The people’s Constitution, that limits our government?
We have Sheriff Clarke, a friend of the Constitution, under attack for his stance on the way thing are.
Just received this from Bergen County NJ for Liberty group. If you recall they had their breakfast “meet and greet” misrepresented by a Bloomberg reporter and his undisclosed attendee. They have sent this to us for posting.
Bergen Liberty Group rejects The Media’s Misrepresentation of Congressman Scott Garrett forum
The Media’s gross mischaracterization and editorial of a Candidates Forum hosted by the Bergen County NJ for Liberty Group on October 1, 2016 is another example of the media’s tactics and mistruths. This time directed at an organization dedicated to the open discussion of our Constitution, both US and State, to better understand the foundations of our history, the laws that protect our country and its citizens.
Instead, various media outlets choose not to research Bergen County NJ for Liberty Group to find its true mission and resorted to distortion and spread an untrue story that Bergen County NJ for Liberty was in some way associated with outside organizations other than the Bergen County NJ for Liberty Group itself. Bergen County NJ for Liberty is a non-partisan group that invites speakers, at the suggestion of its members, from a variety of organizations, to participate in an exchange of ideas and concepts relative to the function of government and its impact throughout history.
Unfortunately, the media editors used the report from an undisclosed reporter, which distorted the group’s purpose, to host Congressman Scott Garrett, in order to better understand his positions during this election year. The Congressman was invited by the Bergen County NJ for Liberty Group and no other group. Requests for guests come from membership and include many diverse backgrounds which are made up of Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Green Movement members, along with many other non-affiliated people.
The Bergen County NJ for Liberty hosted The Libertarian Candidates on October 15th, at The River Edge Diner from 10 am – 12:00 pm and would be happy to invite any other candidate for a breakfast forum.
However, the editorial was an obvious smear tactic by the various media to undermine the candidacy of Congressman Scott Garrett and thus the Bergen County NJ for Liberty Group. The undisclosed reporter should be ashamed of the dark journalism and an apology is in order both to The Bergen County NJ for Liberty Group and Congressman Scott Garrett.
Here is one of the most pro-Constitutional Groups that we support getting slammed by politicos. We helped them in their efforts to fund the billboard and maintain its presence outside the McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) in Lakehurst, NJ. JBMDL is one of the most frequented bases in New Jersey. the NJ Oath Keepers Billboard project was created to “remind their fellows of their “OATH” to the Constitution not the “CO”. This is our conviction to our pro-Constitution groups, to help you help them.Source: Morning Digest: Josh Gottheimer slams Republican Scott Garrett for ties to domestic terror group
Here we have a NJ State Senator libeling the NJ Oath Keepers with her rhetoric. Her only reason, to attack a sitting US Congressman from the opposing party. Well the politicians in New Jersey and the rest of the country had better awaken to the fact that we have had enough. You can call us names, put us on your lists but that will not undo the resolve of love for OUR COUNTRY and its founding principles that WE defend.
A local Liberty Group is being accused of supporting a Domestic Terrorist. One of its members is a member of a group on the Southern Poverty Law Center hit list. This is the type of soft tyranny that we are fighting to defend.
Here is the reason we must defend our principles and values as Americans. The United States Constitution with OUR Bill of Rights, guarantees our “Freedom of Speech”. We are under assault by a complicit main stream media that must be countered.
