Billionaires Support Welfare Immigration

Organisations funded by the billionaire Koch brothers have denounced President Trump’s proposal to prevent immigrants from settling in the U.S. who are likely to go on welfare. A spokesman for one of these groups, Freedom Partners, said that allowing likely welfare recipients to settle was “morally right.”

The Koch brothers support mass immigration to provide cheap labor for business interests. Immigrants getting welfare allows employers to pay them lower wages. Welfare for immigrants is a tax-paid subsidy for business.

Carlson: Dems Once Cared About U.S. Workers

Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson notes that it wasn’t so long ago when Democrats often opposed illegal immigration and sometimes high levels of legal immigration because the influx of of foreign workers was harmful to the wages and working conditions of American workers.

He observes that “As late as 2006, there were still liberals who cared about the economic effects of immigration. “Immigration reduces the wages of domestic workers who compete with immigrants,” explained economist Paul Krugman in The New York Times. “We’ll need to reduce the inflow of low-skill immigrants.” That same year, Hillary Clinton voted for a fence on the Mexican border. So did Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and 23 other Senate Democrats.”

Today, Carlson maintains, Democrats support mass immigration, legal and illegal, as a means to build the electoral clout of their party.

We Don’t Need Mass Immigration

The Quote Below: More Misinformation from the Media

America would not be what and where it is today without immigration and multiculturalism. Donald Trump has enacted stricter policies and rules regarding certain minority groups coming into the United States, and this way of thinking is against much of the early foundation of this country. In fact, American identity is defined by a slew of different groups and ideals. This country would not be here today without cultural exchange. . . .

There have been quite a few moments where this country has limited immigration rates. Many scholars, historians and politicians today are active in stating how this has prevented progress and prosperity, stagnating the country’s growth. When we have encouraged more immigration, the country experienced tremendous growth as a country economically and socially. . . .

American identity has been inherited around a realization that we made our way in this country, and all people deserve that opportunity. Multiculturalism is extremely important and a vital component in our identity. Americans need to be extremely careful in their mindset of limitation.– America’s Foundations Rooted in Immigration, Cultural Exchange, Daniel Stoll, easttennessean.com, 10/8/18 [Link]

Fact Check of Quote: To say that America would not be what it is today without immigration and multiculturalism is not to say that what we are today is completely desirable. Immigration can provide some beneficial diversity, but immigration advocates refuse ever to concede that we might have too much diversity brought about by the highest sustained level of immigration in our history. In point of fact, we do, with research showing that cities with the most diversity have the weakest civic and social ties.

The idea that limiting immigration has always harmed our progress and prosperity is simply false. A perfect example to the contrary was the ending of mass immigration in 1924. The consequence was greater opportunity for immigrants and their children to assimilate as a tighter labor market made it easier for them to rise into the middle class.

The period between 1924 and 1965, which preceded the present cycle of mass immigration, was one of the most creative and innovative periods of American history, with a surge of industrial might that made America the envy of the world. Our creativity and innovation were manifest in our space program which put a man on the moon.

Since the end of the sixties our sense of national purpose has declined, and our economy has lost much of its vibrancy. Our wage levels have stagnated, and our middle class has shrunk. If mass immigration is the unsurpassed social and economic elixir that its proponents claim, surely we would be in better circumstances.

An excellent illustration is California, the state with the highest number and percentage of immigrants. In the sixties it was the epitome of the American Dream with abundant opportunities and a thriving middle class. Now it increasingly resembles the Third World homelands of many of its immigrants, with a relatively small number of wealthy people at the top and lots of poor people at the bottom.

The notion that “all people” should have the opportunity to come to America is a flight into pure insanity. Each year, world population grows by about 80 million, mostly in poor countries. Does anyone really think that we could accept just this increase of humanity for even a few years without being totally swamped?

Immigration enthusiasts don’t seem to care about the practical consequences of their position. Much more important to them, it seems, are the warm fuzzy feelings and sense of moral superiority they derive from tossing a welcome mat to the world. Such gross irresponsibility and narcissism are anything but moral.

McCarthy Supports Border Wall

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will introduce legislation to provide full funding to build President Trump proposed border wall. He stated, “President Trump’s election was a wakeup call to Washington. The American people want us to build the wall and enforce the law. Maintaining strong borders is one of the basic responsibilities of any nation. For too long, America has failed in this responsibility.

Trump Warns of ‘Tidal Wave’

President Trump said that America will face a “tidal wave” of illegal immigration if the Democrats take control of Congress after the midterm elections. Trump made his statement at a speech in Topeka, Kansas, where he was supporting the gubernatorial campaign of Kris Koback, a strong advocate of measures to stop illegal immigration.

One in Five U.S. Births to Immigrant Mothers

The Center for Immigration Studies recently did a report on the birth rates of legal and illegal immigrants. Below are some of the findings of the report.

  • In 2014, one in five births (791,000) in the United States was to an immigrant mother (legal or illegal). Our best estimate is that legal immigrants accounted for 12.4 percent (494,000) of all births, and illegal immigrants accounted for 7.5 percent (297,000).
  • The 297,000 births per year to illegal immigrants is larger than the total number of births in any state other than California and Texas. It is also larger than the total number of births in 16 states plus the District of Columbia, combined.
  • The estimated 28,000 births to illegal immigrants in just the Los Angeles metro area is larger than the total number of births in 14 states and the District of Columbia.
  • Among the native-born, a large share of new mothers (42 percent) are either uninsured or on Medicaid. The rate is even higher among new mothers who are legal immigrants (47 percent) and higher still for new mothers who are in the United States illegally (67 percent). Almost all of these births are likely paid for by taxpayers.

Judge Blocks Deportations

A federal district judge has blocked the Trump Administration from deporting 240, 000 immigrants. They are here under Temporary Protected Status (TPS) which allowed them to stay in the U.S. temporarily due to natural disasters and violent upheaval in their countries. The administration ordered them to go home because conditions in their homelands are now suitable for them to return.

Judge Edward Chen maintains that the administration cannot enforce the law because he thinks it may be motivated by racial bias. The Justice Department replied that Chen’s decision “usurps the role of the executive” in handling matters elated to immigration and promised to challenge that decision in court.

Globalism Isn’t Phony

The Quote Below: More Misinformation from the Media

“[Donald Trump at the United Nations]: ‘Each of us today is the emissary of a distinct culture, a rich history and a people bound together by ties of memory, tradition and the values tha5t make our homelands like nowhere else on earth. . . . That is why America will always choose independence and cooperation over global governance, control and dominion.’.  .  .

“Just what the president meant by ‘global governance’ is unclear. But he seemed intent on conjuring up the phony black helicopter vision of international institutions as an “unelected, unaccountable, global bureaucracy” intent on erasing borders and eliminating national governments.” – President Trump Addresses the United Nations (Laughter), Editorial, The New York Times, 9/25/18. [Link]

Fact Check of Quote: The reality of global elites working against national sovereignty is not “black helicopter” delusion or a conspiracy theory. The activities of globalists are for the most part are in plain view for anyone to see, as outlined in a recent issue of Social Contract magazine. A perfect example is the European Union whose unelected bureaucrats are pushing for unending mass migration from Third World countries which will obliterate the historic nations of Europe. Here in America the advocates of mass immigration, particularly the illegal variety, seem indifferent to importance of our national sovereignty and the significance of our citizenship.

Globalism, as it manifests itself today, is completely incompatible with the right of peoples to determine their destiny in a democratic fashion. Globalism is elitist and authoritarian to its very core. President Trump so rightly affirmed in his UN speech that “We [Americans] reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.”

Economics Push Central American Migration

Immigration advocates often claim that the main reason that Central Americans come to the U.S. illegally is that they fear violence in their home countries. A study of El Salvadoran migrants indicates otherwise. Conducted by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), it found that economic considerations were the main reason the Salvadorans left. Specifically, 48.2 percent of survey respondents said they left for better living conditions, and an additional 22.3 percent said they left in order to send remittances back to El Salvador. Only 16.3 cited insecurity as they reason for their departure.
