Bring it.

On a nice note, my recent moved to the country has gained me moderate buy-in from the wife to arm up a little.  I had a hard time getting her on board when we were city rats.  She even wants a revolver of her own now.

Score.

That sort of thing won't happen down south in the US.  It could happen up north.  Maybe Kazoo will move down south afterall.

It happens here in Seattle.  But it only really happens down where dufus democrats live.  
The concern of course is one day they get excited and head out to republican neighborhoods.  Thankfully they are low largely low nrg, no job, low thinking people so it just does not occur to them.  If they did, a big surprise awaits them. 

They do try to grab weak looking republicans when they have to pass by to go to work.  Those republicans quickly learn to get smarter, toughen their look, carry a weapon.  So mostly what happens is good lessons get learned.

I've only been to Seattle once, and it was gorgeous.  I swear I saw God going up the road to Mt Ranier, saying "I've made this all for you."  It was inspiring.

Back then, the wife wanted for me to look for a job out there and consider moving.

I just couldn't leave the south, so nothing came of it.  Not sure if I'll ever make it back out or not now.

pre-Obama, when I had money, we took a two-week vacation to CA that was outstanding, and is probably our kids' favorite family memory.

Started in LA, went to Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, then Monterrey, then Sequoia National Park, then Pasadena, then La Jolla, then Santa Monica.  It was great.    Our longest stay was Pasadena.  We were supposed to stay 2 nights at the Ritz (no longer a Ritz) there, then go to San Diego.  We liked the Ritz so much that we stayed 4 nights, then went to La Jolla, where we stayed a the La Valencia in what I am not sure wasn't a haunted room.

I got in trouble on that trip, because there was a LL softball field across from our hotel in Paso Robles.  It was all-star time, and they were playing games.  I wandered over there after dinner, and spent a few hours watching games.

The wife and kids were PO'd that we went all the way across the country, and I went to go see LL softball games.  My excuse was that I was scouting, because our all-star season started as soon as we got back.  Nobody bought it.

That trip was the next summer after Seattle.  On that one, we knew that we liked to visit, but could never live there.

The wife wants to get an RV, and go visit the Bush libraries in TX, then the Reagan library, and points in between, so we may make it out there again.

I lived in Paso Robles for 12 year.  Barney Schwartz Park is where you saw those games.  Beautiful facility.  Paso, as it's known, is now a world-renowned wine region but it has a long and continuing history of cattle ranching and other agriculture.  We moved there from OC for a few reasons but it didn't bother me that my kids would be exposed to different cultures in comparison to the lily-white OC.

It is also a red city in a sea of blue.

Where were you in OC and when did you move? Tustin was largely lily-white when we moved there in '69 and it changed over the years as has the rest of OC. The non-Hispanic white population of OC was only 44% in 2010 census (see Wiki excerpt below). Asian and Hispanic population percentages are larger than US average and Blacks are under.

I spent a couple years traveling to central Maine for a project in the '90s and we were struck by how lily-white it is. Being served by someone with blonde hair and blue eyes in a Chinese restaurant was a very unique experience for us.

The 2010 United States Census reported that Orange County had a population of 3,010,232. The racial makeup of Orange County was 1,830,758 (60.8%) White (44.0% non-Hispanic white), 50,744 (1.7%) African American, 18,132 (0.6%) Native American, 537,804 (17.9%) Asian, 9,354 (0.3%) Pacific Islander, 435,641 (14.5%) from other races, and 127,799 (4.2%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1,012,973 persons (33.7%).[31]

The Hispanic and Latino population is predominantly of Mexican origin; this group accounts for 28.5% of the county's population, followed by Salvadorans (0.8%), Guatemalans (0.5%), Puerto Ricans (0.4%), Cubans (0.3%), Colombians (0.3%), and Peruvians (0.3%).[32] Santa Ana with its population reportedly 75 percent Hispanic/Latino, is among the most Hispanic/Latino percentage cities in both California and the U.S., esp. of Mexican-American descent.[33] See also Logan Park (Santa Ana), the city's largest and oldest barrio.

Among the Asian population, 6.1% are Vietnamese, followed by Koreans (2.9%), Chinese (2.7%), Filipinos (2.4%), Indians (1.4%), Japanese (1.1%), Cambodians (0.2%) Pakistanis (0.2%), Thais (0.1%), Indonesians (0.1%), and Laotians (0.1%).[32] According to KPCC in 2014, Orange County has the largest proportion of Asian Americans in Southern California, where one in five residents are Asian American.[34] There is also a significant Muslim population in the county.[35]

I was in Trabuco Canyon near Mission Viejo.  The South part of the county is much whiter than central or north.  Irvine has become very Asian with UCI in close proximity and the northern reaches of the county that abut LA are more Hispanic.

You can't really see Nixon's La Casa Pacifica, but you can buy it for $60+ million.

http://nypost.com/2017/02/21/sanctuary-city-law-let-gang-member-walk-free-from-rikers/


An illegal immigrant gang member from El Salvador was allowed to walk free from Rikers Island under Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “Sanctuary City” law — in defiance of a federal petition to hold him for deportation, officials said Tuesday.

“This man is by his own admission a member of a violent street gang and he was released back into the community,” said Thomas Decker, field office director for the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement unit in New York. “Honoring a detainer request is not about politics, it is about keeping New York citizens safe.”

President Trump is sympathetic to the young undocumented in our Country and will leave them alone.  Mayors and Governors of these cities are sympathetic to the law abiding undocumented in their communities and will leave them alone.  A little love here, a little love there.  No diff.

And who is sympathetic to the family of a loved one killed by one of these previously law abiding "undocumented"?

Here is what galls me.  The media is lying.  Trump is simply enforcing existing laws.  Nothing more.  Previous presidents should have been impeached for not doing so.

And if I see one more story referring to a "Muslim ban", I'm going to lose it.  There is no Muslim ban.  There is nothing being done to legal immigrants.

dewy has wore out the immigration thread with close to 1,000 posts and nothing new to add, so he may move over here now and repeat himself here for 3 years like he has on that thread.

Poll: Vast majority of Americans oppose sanctuary cities

A new Harris poll shows that 80% of voters say local authorities should have to comply with the law by reporting to federal agents the illegal immigrants they come into contact with.  The poll also shows that President Trump enjoys broad public support to crack down on sanctuary cities.

 

The Hill:

As it stands, hundreds of cities across the nation – many with Democratic mayors or city councils – are refusing to do so.

Trump has signed an executive order directing Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to find ways to starve these sanctuary cities of federal funding. A Reuters analysisfound the top 10 sanctuary cities in the U.S. receive $2.27 billion in federal funding for programs ranging from public health services to early childhood education.

Kelly is expected to hire thousands of new immigration enforcement agents with broad authority to detain and deport those in the country illegally, potentially setting up a showdown between the federal government and sanctuary cities.

 

The Harvard–Harris Poll survey found strong support for an overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, with 77 percent saying they support comprehensive immigration reform against only 23 percent who oppose.

"While there is broad support for comprehensive immigration reform, there is overwhelming opposition to sanctuary cities," said Harvard–Harris co-director Mark Penn. "The public wants honest immigrants treated fairly and those who commit crimes deported and that's very clear from the data."

The finding is one of several in the survey that show Trump has support for some of the controversial immigration proposals that were a hallmark of his campaign.

A majority – 52 percent – say they support Trump's two executive orders allowing for the construction of a southern border wall, increasing the number of immigration officers by 10,000 and finding a way to revoke federal funds for sanctuary cities.

The crackdown on sanctuary cities is the most popular feature of those actions, followed closely by the directive to increase the border patrol, which is backed by 75 percent of voters.

The wall is the most divisive element of Trump's plan, with 53 percent opposing its construction.

Meanwhile, 53 percent of voters surveyed said they back Trump's travel ban, which was rejected by the courts. That order temporarily suspended the United States' refugee program for 120 days, indefinitely suspended resettlement for Syrian refugees and imposed a 90-day travel and immigration ban from seven predominately Muslim nations: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia.

Kelly has said the administration will roll out a "tighter, more streamlined version" of the executive order some time soon.

The large number of voters supporting a crackdown on sanctuary cities means that even in the most fervent pro-illegal alien jurisdictions, most residents oppose releasing illegals from custody.  That should make it easier politically for the GOP if President Trump can find a way to cut funding for sanctuary cities that passes muster with the courts.

Finding a way to cut education and health care funding that goes to both illegal immigrants and U.S. citizens will be a problem.  There's no way to dissect this funding so that only money earmarked for illegals is denied by Washington.

That's why the administration and the Republican Congress could have more success if they target grants to cities from various federal departments – especially the Justice Department.  Many of these grants go to local law enforcement in sanctuary cities.  True, ordinary citizens will have to share in the punishment of city governments who defy the law, but that should put political pressure on those governments to change their policies.

The days of these sanctuary cities may be numbered if the political will can be found to deny funds to those governments who thumb their noses at the law.

Who is sympathetic to the wallet sucking tax sound coming from all of this?

Teach her to shoot shoulder mounted weapons. All the women in my family from age 8-85 can operate pump, and semi auto shotguns. The youngest of our family are really very good with AR platforms, and Glock pistols. My 8 year old niece was absolutely on target with an AR-15, and laying down a lead field on target with a 30 round magazine at 50 yards. Then she jettisoned an empty magazine, slapped a fresh one in, and jacked a round into chamber and continued without a hitch. That's my little Redneck Gal. Liberal pukes should take note, we are not raising a generation of triggered pukes that you are. Our children can not only defend themselves and their families, they have the skills to survive when the lights go off in your sh!t hole city.
