America and Immigration

Results of a new poll conducted by Breitbart News/ Gravis Marketing on American attitudes toward immigration will be a shock to many political and media elites. Some highlights: By nearly a 6-to-1 margin U.S. voters want immigration of all kinds decreased. By a 25-to-1 margin voters want unemployed American workers to be given the preference for a job opening over a worker brought in from a foreign country. A whopping 61% of voters believe that any politician who would rather import foreign workers to take jobs rather than give them to current U.S. residents, is unfit to hold office.

  • A whopping 61% of voters believe that any politician who would rather import foreign workers to take jobs rather than give them to current U.S. residents, is unfit to hold office.

  • Almost three out of four voters believe that “instead of giving jobs and healthcare to millions of refugees from around the world, we should rebuild our inner cities and put Americans back to work. (African Americans agreed with this by a 10-to-1 margin and Hispanics agreed by a 6-to-1 margin.)



These are extraordinary results that suggest the leadership of both political parties’ are out of step with the public.




Texas Fights Back On Life



In June the Supreme Court threw out a common sense Texas law designed to ensure that abortion facilities are kept to the same standards of health and safety as other medical facilities, and that abortionists have admitting privileges at local hospitals in case of complications. The court’s ruling in Whole Woman’s Health vs. Hellerstedt was a blow to the pro-life cause, but we pro-lifers are a resilient bunch.



Texas is now contemplating updating a pamphlet it distributes to women seeking abortions within 24 hours of the procedure. The 2003 Woman’s Right to Know law ensures that women will receive information about the risks associated with abortion. Now the Department of State Health Services in Texas is updating the pamphlet. It will include a directory of resources for women who decide to keep their children. It will also inform them that unborn babies after 19 weeks gestation are able to feel pain, which is the basis for Texas’ ban on most abortions after that time. Another section will tell readers about confirmed links between abortion, miscarriage and cancer and that abortion can cause depression.

Predictably, abortion advocates are fighting the changes, just as they fought the original booklet years ago. The booklet was created to help women make more informed decisions based on the fact that many women seeking abortions are not aware that what’s growing inside them is not merely a clump of cells or a tumor, as the left often claims, but a living, feeling human being.

Alexa Garcia-Ditta of NARAL Pro-Choice Texas said the new booklet "is not going to do anything to help inform someone’s decision. If anything, it’s going to shame a patient seeking abortion care and introduce unnecessary and unsupported claims that are ultimately designed to coerce someone.” No, actually it’s designed to help women make better informed decisions based on science. This booklet not only helps to reveal the humanity of the unborn child to abortion-minded women. It has also revealed the lie of the left’s contention that they respect women and revere science.
