Mexicans - Hell Yeah... Poles - Hell No

WASHINGTON, June 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An amendment to the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations bill that would add Poland to the list of countries currently covered by the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) would result in significant increases in immigration, legal and illegal, and heighten national security risks, warned the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). 

The VWP currently allows citizens of 38 countries to enter the U.S. for up to 90 days without having to obtain a visa or be interviewed, face-to-face, by a U.S. consular officer. [Strange, since Obama allows Hispanics to illegally enter.] To participate in the VWP, federal law requires that the sending country demonstrate that their visa refusal rate is 3 percent or less. 

Poland, however, represents a high risk for illegal immigration. In 2014, 6.4 percent of visa applications from Polish nationals were rejected. Poles are among the top 20 nationalities of illegal aliens in the U.S. Moreover, since joining the European Union in 2004, some 2 million Polish citizens have settled outside that country, mostly in other EU countries.

Compounding the risk of increased illegal immigration from Poland is a 2013 Obama administration policy memo allowing VWP overstays to apply for green cards if they are immediate relatives of U.S. citizens. Given the large number of Polish immigrants in the U.S., adding Poland to the VWP program practically invites people to enter under fraudulent pretenses.

"The decision to include Poland under the VWP is purely a political one that will further exacerbate the nation's illegal immigration crisis," charged Dan Stein. "The charge to grant VWP status to Poles is led by Sens. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), who is facing a tough reelection campaign in a state with a sizeable Polish-American population, and Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), another state with a substantial Polish community. Regardless of what ethnic group is pressing for special immigration benefits, American jobs and American security should not be put at risk based on narrow political interests."

FAIR supports repeal of the VWP because the program poses an ongoing threat to homeland security. International terrorist organizations, including al-Qaeda, ISIS and others openly recruit citizens of VWP countries because these passports make it easy for them to gain access to the U.S. and other western nations.

"In an age of massive global migration and global terrorist networks, VWP is a post 9/11 luxury we can no longer afford," declared Stein.  "Adding a country, known to be a source of significant illegal immigration to the United States and other countries, would only compound the problem.

"The United States should continue to welcome people from around the world who wish to visit our country for legitimate purposes, but only after we establish with reasonable confidence that they do not pose a danger and that they intend to return home before their visas expire. Given Poland's exceptionally high visa refusal rate and the large number of Polish illegal aliens in the U.S., we must continue to require that Polish citizens obtain a visa before entering our country," Stein concluded.


Founded in 1979, FAIR is the country's largest immigration reform group.  With over 250,000 members nationwide, FAIR fights for immigration policies that serve national interests, not special interests.  FAIR believes that immigration reform must enhance national security, improve the economy, protect jobs, preserve our environment, and establish a rule of law that is recognized and enforced.

The new Holocaust

Pro-Choice activists who are liberals, progressives and mostly Democrats have a Facebook partition where you can lend your backing for the notion that the Virgin Mary should have aborted the birth of Jesus Christ.

And now, the pro-abortion group Women on Waves who in the past used boats to smuggle potentially dangerous abortion pills called RU-486 into countries that prohibit abortions has a new battle plan. On Saturday, the group will have an abortion drone fly for the first time to deliver abortion drugs from German to Poland, which protects unborn babies from abortions since 1993. The drone will start its journey at 11 AM from “Am Winterhafen” in Frankfurt and fly to Słubice. The exact location will be announced on Friday evening. There will be opportunity for the press to ask questions after the landing of the abortion drone in Poland.

Germany Killing Poles Again

Of all European countries only in Poland, Ireland and Malta is abortion illegal. But, Women on Waves appears to have found a way to fly drones inside pro-life countries with abortion pills in a manner that doesn’t violate the sovereign airspace of the pro-life nations.

“As the Abortion drone weighs less than 5 kg, is not used for any commercial purposes, will stay within the sight of the person flying it and does not fly in controlled airspace, no authorization is required under Polish or German law,” it claims.

he minister also underscored that NATO plays a major role in the current situation. "We must know how to defend ourselves. Our goal is to maintain order.

Well regulated militia

A lesson well understood in Poland:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, . . .

Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak has called on Poles between the ages of 18 and 50 to undertake voluntary military training to defend their homeland.

Young Poles training

Fears that the annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region is just the beginning of Russian leader Vladimir Putin's expansionist plans, Poland needs to prepare for the worst.

After Putin's defiance of international law by invading eastern Ukraine, Poland has embarked on an 18% increase in defense spending in the last year - the biggest increase of any country in Europe.

The more than $10 billion budget will fund replacement and a revamp of its aging Soviet-era military equipment.

Though conscription is not currently the law in Poland,  next door neighbor Lithuania has instituted a measure to draft young men into the military to defend their country against possible Russian aggression.
