Those of us who pay attention are aware of the Nov.19, judicial decision resulting in a nationwide restraining order barring President Donald Trump from denying asylum to caravans of illegal aliens who cross over the southern border between legitimate points of entry.
After advocates for the thousands of foreign invaders from Central America did some judge shopping, they found their ideal black-robed decider on the United States District Court for the Northern District of California,
How much do any of us know about Judge Jon Steven Tigar? He fits the metric for an Obama appointee. The former San Francisco public defender graduated from UC Berkeley School of Law. And as an immigrant himself, his bias is clearly with the illegal border crossers. The difference is, he arrived legally from London, England, where his father was a law professor.

Previous generations of immigrants came legally — often processed through Ellis Island. They were eager to learn English, acclimate and became proud Americans taking our nation‘s history as their own.

Americanization is now a contemptible goal. We are no longer a “melting pot,” but rather a “salad bowl,” of distinct ethnicities where diversity, rather than unity, is celebrated. Hyphenated Americans have become the norm. And a single Obama-appointed judge like Jon S. Tigar wields more power than our elected president.
