NEW COLUMN IS “A Global ‘Right Of Return’ To The U.S.? Who Knew?” It’s now on Townhall.com. An excerpt:
No good deed goes unpunished. Jeff Sessions wants to restore to America the “sound principles of asylum” and long-standing tenets of immigration law, abandoned by American leaders over the decades.
That makes the attorney general a Hitler, to use liberal argumentation. Condemned for all eternity.
As the left sees it, if America isn’t going to police the world; it must at least provide shelter to all people from unpoliced parts of the world.
That’s the left’s reason du jour for opposing the restoration of American immigration sovereignty.
And now, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is piling on.
By narrowing promiscuously broad asylum criteria—the system is being gamed, attests Andrew Arthur, a former immigration judge—Sessions stands accused of flouting the “right to life” of the women of the world.
No matter that America has its own share of abused women “persecuted by their husbands and ignored by their own governments.” The last, parenthetic remarks were uttered by immigration lawyers, who mask greed with prattle about values.
This legal club is looking out exclusively for the women of the world, not the women of America. To them, we are the world.
Over the objections of such rent-seekers, Sessions has dared to say “no!”
“Asylum was never meant to alleviate all problems—even all serious problems—that people face every day all over the world,” reasoned Sessions, quite sagaciously.
To manipulate Americans, politicians (save the likes of President Trump and his attorney general) use the values cudgel.
With respect to immigration, the idea is to impress upon pliable Americans that the world has a global Right of Return to the U.S. Fail to accept egalitarian immigration for all into America; and you are flouting the very essence of Americanism. …

Trump tells Shinzo Abe, “You don’t have this (immigration) problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon.” Brilliant audacity.
