After a year of record illegal immigration and a high baseline of third-world legal immigration, Republican governors are now pushing for even more refugee resettlement.

In September, President Trump gave veto power to governors and county officials to halt refugee resettlement in their respective jurisdictions with the full understanding that at least the Republican officials would follow his campaign promises of putting American taxpayers first. Instead, not a single Republican governor has publicly exercised this prerogative, while several of them have given their affirmative support to this travesty.

We understand that Massachusetts is considering a statute to bring Immigration Sanctuary to the entire State, and we have been asked to offer our view of what that could mean realistically. Having several hundred years of combined experience in the field of American Immigration and being a nonpartisan organization, we will be relatively brief in our commentary in comparison to the magnitude of the issue.


More than 100,000 illegal immigrants who requested a special Obama-era amnesty for adults who came to the U.S. as children have criminal histories, according to an alarming report released this month by the government. Offenses committed by the illegal aliens seeking protection, benefits and rights under the policy known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) include murder, rape, weapon and assault charges. DACA has shielded nearly 800,000 illegal aliens under the age of 31 from deportation and allowed them to obtain work permits and drivers licenses. Obama launched the outrageous measure through executive order in 2012 to help children who came to the U.S. “through no fault of their own.” The Trump administration tried to end DACA in 2017 but open borders groups sued to keep it going and now the Supreme Court is set to decide the matter.

Weeks earlier, Senate declared: ‘No emergency on the border.”

On November 5, 2019 ABC News reported, Horrific details emerge in killing of 9 US citizens, including 6 children, in ambush in Mexico.

Once again it appears that the violent Mexican drug cartels have committed a horrific mass murder. Their tactics could have been taken from the playbook of ISIS or al Qaeda. Initially news reports expressed the possibility that the killers may have mistaken those killed for members of an adversary cartel. However, the facts don’t support it. Children, including infants were among those shot and burned while strapped into their car seats.
