Migrant Caravan Moves Toward U.S.

A caravan of four thousand migrants is moving though Central America with the aim of crossing into the United States without authorization. The caravan is organized by group calling itself Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders). President Trump has urged the Mexican government to halt the caravan at Mexico’s southern border. If that fails, he warned that he would deploy U.S. troops at the U.S.-Mexican border to stop the caravan.

Pelosi: No Wall

House Minority Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked, if her party regains the House, would she be willing to accept a border wall in exchange for some legislative concessions from the Republicans. She replied that she would trade “nothing” for a wall. She explained that securing our Mexican border in this fashion would be “immoral .  .  . not something people do between countries.” Pelosi added that a border wall is a “manhood issue for [President Trump].”

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.

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.

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.
