Democrat and RINO leaders want America to officially stop enforcing its immigration laws, that is, to let all those who come into America stay in America forever if they claim asylum, refugee, parole, etc. status. That will elect Trump.

If/when Democrats and/or RINOs try to officially make your county, your township, your municipality, and/or your school district official sanctuaries for illegals, who will lead the fight against that? I will lead the fight against that in DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, and Wheaton Warrenville School District 200. Previously, in Wheaton, I successfully led fights against video gambling and pot.

Wheaton is holding a special meeting on bus regulations Monday, January 29, 2024, 7:00 PM.

Deerfield’s bus ordnance is at: https://deerfield.il.us/DocumentCenter/View/3731/Ordinance-Amending-Chapter-22-of-The-Municipal-Code-of-the-Village-of-Deerfield-Illinois-1975-As-Amended-Regarding-Unscheduled-Bus-Stops

I ask that the following speak out against Democrat/RINO orchestrated illegal immigration: a) the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), b) your representative on the IRP State Central Committee, c) the leaders of your county/township/ward Republican party organizations, d) your Republican congressman, state senator, and state representative, e) the Republican leaders of your county, township, municipality, and school district, f) the candidates on the March 19, 2024 Republican primary ballot in your precinct, g) conservative leaders and activists in your area, and h) religious leaders and activists in your area.

— Orland Park officially declares it is not a sanctuary city – Jeff Vorva
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For years, Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau has been saying the village is a non-sanctuary municipality. On January 15, the board of trustees made it official. The board voted 6-0, with Joni Radaszewski absent, on an ordinance declaring that the village will not be a sanctuary city. In past meetings, Pekau said that allowing migrants into the community was unfair to the residents of the community and unfair to the migrants themselves as Orland Park is not equipped to handle them. He added that sanctuary cities go against federal law even though it’s being encouraged on the state and county level. “We are clearly not a sanctuary city,” Pekau said. “We will not aid and abet the state, the county, or the city of Chicago in violating federal law. “And it’s really unfortunate that we have to pass something like this. We shouldn’t really have to say that we need to pass an ordinance saying we’re going to follow federal law. But it seems like in this current environment, we do.” On the problems caused by migrants and illegal immigrants, Pekau paraphrased former President Ronald Reagan. “The beauty of America is that if you come here from somewhere else you can become an American,” Pekau said. “No other country takes people in, and they become Americans like America does. “But it must be done legally and it seems absolutely nuts that we have to pass an ordinance that we will follow U.S. law. Now Chicago has reached out and asked us to help them violate federal law.” The mayor said that there is $450 billion being spend nationally on “non-citizens illegally crossing our borders” and that money can be better spent on the local level.)


— Naperville migrants: City scraps plan for residents to house new arrivals
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville is not moving forward with a plan to have residents house migrants in their homes. The city was considering putting together a list of residents willing to bring migrants into their homes. But city staff decided there are other state and federal agencies putting together lists of shelters to house migrants, so it’s not necessary for Naperville residents to pitch in. The decision came just one week from Chicago’s deadline for when migrants will start being evicted from shelters. The city said it’s continuously looking at that 60-day shelter stay policy, but no changes in the eviction date have been announced.)

— FRONT PAGE WITH PICTURE: Naperville will not consider volunteer list for housing migrants – Alicia Fabbre
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a memo to city council members Wednesday, Naperville City Manager Doug Krieger said the city received significant feedback following a Jan. 16 city council meeting where Councilman Josh McBroom suggested the idea. At that time, city staff was directed to look into the suggestion and report back to the council. “Based on initial staff research, migrant housing lists are currently being maintained by government agencies at the federal and state level, as well as through private charities,” Krieger writes in the memo. “As a result, it has been determined that it is not necessary for further city consideration and therefore this matter will not appear on a future city council agenda.” The message will be part of a “manager’s memorandum” expected to be posted to the city’s website, city spokeswoman Linda LaCloche said. At the Jan. 16 council meeting, McBroom floated the idea of a volunteer list of residents willing to house migrants and had the support of three council members – Nate Wilson, Jennifer Bruzan-Taylor and Paul Leong – to have staff look into the suggestion and report back to the council at a later date. Though McBroom said last week he was sincere in his proposal, he said Thursday the suggestion was a “polite challenge” to those who support an open border policy. “It was a sincere challenge because the city of Chicago clearly cannot handle this crisis anymore, and they’re putting pressure on the cities,” McBroom said. “The way I see it, we’ve got one of two options. Individuals can contact their state representatives to pressure them to get the border secure. Or, if you supported this policy and you believe an open border is a good policy, then are you willing to house a migrant family? There are a lot of them who are homeless right now in the dead of winter.” McBroom’s proposal quickly drew national attention, and McBroom on Thursday appeared on a Fox News program. It also sparked a flurry of emails to council members with reactions ranging from outrage from conservatives who blasted McBroom, a Republican, for suggesting people house new arrivals to a local church inquiring how families could help. McBroom brushed off some of the reaction from fellow conservatives, saying he could “take a few arrows” and said his challenge at least got people talking. Others, however, didn’t see his actions in the same light. “I don’t appreciate Naperville becoming a national laughing stock or just being used for political points,” Councilman Ian Holzhauer said. As the city faced increased scrutiny, Mayor Scott Wehrli said he had a discussion with McBroom late last week about his proposal. “I suggested to him if he had a change of heart, he should contact the city manager and let him know,” Wehrli said. McBroom on Thursday acknowledged he contacted Krieger about the proposal and asked to have it removed from future agendas. Wilson, who initially supported the measure, also requested the same. Krieger reached out to Taylor and Leong, who also supported ending further inquiry and removing it from the agenda. According to council policy, the support of three council members is needed to add an item to the agenda. To remove an item, two of those council members must support its removal. Wehrli, who said he did not support McBroom’s initial proposal, said the city will continue to ensure the safe passage of new arrivals to the landing zone in Chicago. Residents who want to help new arrivals are encouraged to visit chicago.gov.)

— McBroom: ‘I haven’t had a single person’ in Naperville sign up to house illegal aliens
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville City Council Member Josh McBroom said he hasn’t had any Naperville residents volunteer to house illegal aliens who have moved to the Chicagoland area. McBroom made the comments Thursday on AM 560’s Chicago’s Morning Answer with Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson. “It’s weird. During the last presidential race, we had thousands of Biden signs in Naperville. We’ve got houses all over town that advertise support for this mass migration of illegals. They say ‘no human is illegal,” McBroom said. “Since I’ve proposed this, I’ve haven’t had a single person ask me, ‘Where’s the sign-up sheet. I want to sign the sign-up sheet, I’m ready to sign my house up for the signup sheet’ It’s shocking.” “These are the people that voted for this. We’ve got thousands of illegals coming into the area. And they’re homeless— in the middle of winter,” McBroom said. ”You voted for this. You sign up. Be the change. Open your house. At the Jan. 16 Naperville City Council Meeting, McBroom suggested the city create a “signup sheet” whereby residents who support illegal immigration to the Chicagoland area could volunteer to house now homeless illegal aliens to live with them. “We hear from people that we should do more,” McBroom said. “We do have a very affluent community, a lot of big homes.” McBroom earned his Bachelor’s degree from Purdue University. He and his wife Emily settled in Naperville in 2001. McBroom is a Financial Advisor and owner of McBroom Financial Group in Naperville. He was elected to the Naperville city council in 2023. His current council term ends in 2027.)

— Reparations resolution lists 130 reasons for handing out $14 trillion – Steve Jordahl
(COMMENT: Reacting to the resolution, GianCarlo Canaparo of the Heritage Foundation says the resolution claims slavery created “lasting harm” on black Americans. Among the poorest Americans, he says, there was little difference between struggling blacks and whites through most of the 20th century until the 1960s. Echoing a view of many others, such as black economist Thomas Sowell, Canaparo says the structure of the black family changed for the worse when President Lyndon Johnson introduced his “war on poverty” in 1964. What was supposed to end dependence on government instead created what is now known was the “welfare state” that hurt black families the most. “It is the family, staying in the family above all else,” Canaparo says, “that determines your economic, educational success in America.” Bush, 47, fits that description herself. The daughter of a local politician, Errol Bush, she graduated from a private Catholic prep school then graduated from nursing school.)

Virtually all of them were female and/or minority. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sheer volumes of admissions now exceed national need, capacity, and manageability — a far cry from a rational, and limited, immigration approach designed to aggregate national purpose with mutual benefits. Instead, today’s immigration has often become a zero-sum game, the proposition that a gain for one side entails a corresponding loss for the other side…notably each and every American. Of course, it’s been evident for a long time; FAIR has been reporting regularly on the rising cost and impact of immigration. But while politicians have been able to conveniently ignore consequences and “kick the can” down the road for decades, the money is now running out, space is unavailable, and social resources are drained. The result has been a marked increase in the immediate shifting of resources and a displacement of Americans to accommodate surging migrant needs.)

— Cultural Replacement: Why The Immigration Crisis Is Being Deliberately Engineered – TYLER DURDEN
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Cultural Replacement Theory “Replacement Theory” is often denigrated by the media as a racist conspiracy held by white people who are “afraid to lose power.” This is nonsensical for a number of reasons, including the fact that if “white people” were a monolith and we had all the power, then we would simply snuff out any threats to that power and lock down our borders. There would be nothing anyone could do to stop us. The truth is, there is no white monolith, there is no patriarchy and there is no such thing as systemic racism. Do some leftist activists clamor for mass migration to replace white people in the US and Europe? Absolutely. They call it “decolonization.” Is this the real purpose of mass migration? Probably not. The replacement going on is not so much about replacing white people as it is about replacing western culture. The goal, I believe, is to open the floodgates to foreign elements because most of them come from more socialist systems that have no understanding of individual freedom. In this way, the establishment can dilute the American culture of independence and use the tyranny of the majority (democracy) to erase our values and principles forever. This is why you will hear Biden and his ilk constantly pontificate on “democracy” and the “defense of democracy’ and the conservative “threat to democracy.” This is very deliberate terminology. When they say “democracy”, they are talking about the rule of the mob; the tyranny of the majority. They are talking about collectivism, socialism and ultimately authoritarianism for the “sake of the greater good.” Migrants are being used to phase out the pillars of western civilization. This is why the borders must be secured now and illegals must be kicked out of the country with haste. No martial law, no FEMA detention facilities, no amnesty, no asylum, no welfare and no subsidies. They just need to be removed and sent back to where they came from and if they return illegally they should be severely punished. In order for this to happen it would appear that southern states will have to enforce their own border security. But how to do this without federal interference? The American public will have to step in and step up to help states like Texas. The movement will have to be so overwhelming that the federal government is afraid to intervene. The shape of this secure border action will require trial and error, but as long as Texas is willing to continue arresting illegals and shipping them out of the country, all that is needed is a contingent of deputized Americans to help watch the border and catch people trying to cross. There may also be a need for people to defend border walls and fences from federal sabotage. Some will argue that this constitutes a violation, a defiance of federal authorities, and I would say yes, it is, and that’s a good thing. The Biden Administration is in dereliction of its duty to keep the country safe from foreign invasion. Doing nothing and leaving borders undefended from mass immigration is no different from refusing to defend the border from a foreign military. If the current trend is allowed to continue, the stage will be set for a host of emergencies that will be exploited to give elites the excuse to erase what constitutional protections we have left. This cannot be tolerated. It’s time to end it.)
