During President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress on Tuesday night, one political nemesis, Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, invited a Muslim refugee from Iraq to sit with her as a non-verbal statement of her opposition to Trump’s attempt to prevent Muslim terrorists from entering the country without first undergoing an “extreme vetting” process.
The fulfillment of Trump’s promise to revamp and enforce immigration laws this year has met with an enormous amount of press coverage by a news media that opposes immigration control, along with the political leaders the ladies and gentlemen of the press appear to serve. While most Americans support their warfighters, a large number of the population buy into the Democratic Party’s narrative.
The media’s and political left’s dirty, little secret is the fact that far too many military veterans are living on the streets in cities that proudly proclaim they are “sanctuaries” for illegal aliens, some of whom are breaking laws other than merely immigration statutes. In addition, while illegal aliens are receiving free healthcare, food stamps, housing assistance and other necessities, America’s war veterans are dying because of limited medical assistance.
On Monday morning, representatives of the non-profit group Veterans Assisting Veterans (VAV) appeared on the top-rated show “Fox & Friends” to discuss their reasons for opposing the immigration proposals of leftist Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, and other Democrats who view the daily increase of illegal aliens in the U.S. as a promise of more voters for their party.
VAV’s spokesman John MacDonald told the show’s anchors: “The point is this: Elizabeth Warren and people like her seem to have a very hard time understanding the difference between legal and illegal. And you know what, there’s been plenty of immigrants who have served in the U.S. military and our hats are off to all of them, and of course we love their service and their contribution to our country. But, I find it very hard to believe that Elizabeth Warren wants to lump all immigrants into the same category. It seems to be the fact that she’s more interested in creating political theater than she is actually helping Americans.”
MacDonald is an Air force veteran and radio talk show host at WCAP in Lowell, Massachusetts. “This is a call to action, to our fellow veterans, so they can understand we need to speak out. People need to understand these politicians work for us, we don’t work for them. It was legal immigrants and United States citizens that voted for Elizabeth Warren. Illegal immigrants didn’t vote for her,” he said during his Fox News Channel appearance.
Meanwhile, VAV’s President Dennis Moschella said during the same show: “There’s hundreds of veterans dying every day. … Why don’t we address those problems first, and then we’ll worry about other people coming into our country.”
Moschella, who now serves as the Revere Police Department’s community resource officer, said, “There’s hundreds of veterans [who] are dying every day, whether through illness, old age or suicide. Why don’t we address those problems first, then we’ll worry about other people coming into our country.”
“We’re not trying to be political with this,” MacDonald insisted. “We’re here trying to mobilize our fellow veterans to say, ‘You know what, instead of working on illegal activity, instead of finding ways to bring people in who are illegal … how about you help the people that are standing in line, some people that are here legally who are trying to obtain their citizenship? And how about you run to the microphones and help the veterans who provided you the opportunity to speak this way?’ ”
