Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, shocked the Liberal left and political establishment when he called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” pending a more thorough screening process.
At first, Trump was widely criticized, but in light of the growing terrorist attacks, and the Obama Administration’s inability to properly screen radical Islamist’s from entering the U.S., he quickly gained overwhelming support.
A prominent legal team submitted a brief to the State Department concerning Obama’s 2017 U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, asserting that not only are limits on Muslim immigration legal and proper, it is very likely are essential for the continuation of the great experiment in freedom known as the United States.
Bob Unrah, WND reported that they cite John Adams’ letter to the officers of the militia of Massachusetts: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
That means, according to the brief submitted by William Olson of William Olson P.C. on behalf of the United States Justice Foundation, if ever there comes a time when mass numbers in the country fail to follow Judeo-Christian teachings, their freedom will be forfeited.
“There is a reason that most people in the Middle East and other parts of the world seek to emigrate to the United States: they seek a better life,” the brief explains. “It is the fact that our nation was based on biblical principles that has allowed our experiment in freedom to continue for over two centuries.
“While secularist elites in the corporate-controlled media, academia, internationalist corporations, and government and those of currently prominent Eastern and Middle Eastern faiths often deny the significance of that biblical foundation of our nation, the American people understand that we need to hold these principles in common.”
The brief warns: “Massive immigration by peoples who do not share these values threatens the survival of our American constitutional Republic.”
It also was Adams who said, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net.”
The brief states: “If this country admits persons who cannot or will not govern themselves, people who do not believe that when they die they will face judgment by a righteous God, we will see our police state grow to adopt such powers as necessary to control the people, and our experiment with liberty will end. It is in this area that we have a near complete disconnect between the great swath of the American people who would agree with John Adams, and those Intellectual Elites who would ridicule him and his Christian faith. The vast majority of those holding federal office have no understanding of what has made the American experiment successful, as they employ various tactics to open our borders.”
The brief was submitted in compliance with a federal requirement to allow for public comment on the State Department’s mandated annual report to Congress on the refugee settlement program.
It comes as thousands of Muslim refugees are being settled by the Obama administration in U.S. communities. In Europe, meanwhile, massive Muslim immigration has threatened the welfare state amid reports of crime, including sexual assault, by migrants.
The USJF comments, addressed to Simon Henshaw, deputy assistant secretary in the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration in the State Department, noted that the founding documents of the U.S. acknowledge the Judeo-Christian God.
“One of our nation’s earliest political documents – the 1620 Mayflower Compact – begins with an acknowledgment of the sovereignty of God over the affairs of men. The Pilgrims proclaimed that their voyage to a new land was taken for the glory of God and advancement of the Christian faith. And it was that Christian faith upon which they created a new civil order” the brief says.
USJF says the entire crisis of immigration actually was triggered by the U.S.
“U.S. Army General Wesley Clark served as the Supreme Allied Commander for Europe – no doubt the most important military position outside of the Pentagon. Shortly after the events of 9/11, in 2001, General Clark visited the Pentagon where he learned that the United States was planning to begin wars to topple seven Middle Eastern governments in five years. Those seven countries were Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.”
But now, “the U.S. government, having worked covertly for the past 15 years to destabilize the Syrian government, it is utter disinformation for the government now to tell the American people that there is a refugee crisis of unparalleled proportions because of flaws in the Syrian government. The U.S. government created this crisis and cannot now demand that the American people accept massive immigration from the Middle East, under the cover of a humanitarian program to address a ‘refugee’ crisis.”
Previous generations of Americans chose to welcome those whose “religious beliefs and cultures were harmonious with the foundational principles of the American experiment,” the brief explains. Now, however, modern politicians “have a visceral hostility to the nation state conceptually, as they believe they have found a better way. But the way of internationalism is as old as the Tower of Babel, where the world’s peoples rebelled against our Creator God.”
USJF says the “easiest way for the Internationalist Elites to achieve their objective of a ‘borderless’ world is to change the demographics of our nation.’”
“Open borders, and the admission of millions of persons from other nations, cultures, and religions, is their goal. Loose immigration and refugee policy is the current tactic. … Such persons care little about the economic well-being of Americans. They certainly do not care about the physical safety of Americans. And least of all do they care if Americans continue to live in a relatively ‘free’ state. Indeed, freedom must be extinguished in order for the Internationalist Elites to have the power to force on the American people what they believe to be best – meaning, best for these elites.”
Specifically, Muslims do not share a belief in the best for society, as non-Muslims are second-class citizens in Muslim nations, women “fare ill” and all Muslim rules are enforced by Muslim courts composed of Muslim clergy.
That leaves America, and likewise Europe, as targets of “jihad.”
“And one of the most prominent means to achieve the jihadist goal is emigration from Muslim nations in north Africa and the Middle East to Europe and North America, including the United States. In Dearborn, Michigan, we have seen the stoning of Christians holding up signs promoting their Christian beliefs at a city-sponsored Arab Festival. The police did nothing to protect the Christians or to arrest those throwing rocks,” the brief says.
“Since then, we have seen the violence caused by Muslim immigration on other Western nations. The Swedish government, like the United States, has embraced multi-culturalism, which has resulted in the near-destruction of the nation. Only an Internationalist Elitist would not react in horror to the stories of rapes, and gang rapes, of Swedish women by Muslims in Sweden. The story is similar in Germany.
“For these reasons, the United States Justice Foundation urges the Obama administration and Secretary John Kerry to cease and desist in allowing any immigration or refugees from Muslim countries from now through the end of FY 2017. … A study by the United States Justice Foundation demonstrates the constitutionality and legality of this step, as well as precedents for this action.”
