The tax cuts and wage hikes have come to the American people as a godsend. More money in a working man’s pocket is always a positive event. But there is a movement afoot being pushed by the GOP establishment, and their corporate donors that support them, to align with the progressive socialists on a push for amnesty.
A discharge petition written by the GOP, and spearheaded by Florida GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo, is demanding that amnesty should be “as high a number as possible,” according to what Curbelo told Roll Call.
The donors are calling the shots in an effort to assure a steady stream of immigrants, both legal and illegal, to fill the low wage jobs that the donors create for a profit and at the expense of the American working man and the rule of law.
Part of this agenda is the attempt to convince the American people that this influx of low skilled low educated workforce is good for America. The polls being paraded across the televisions of America show poll after poll of American approval of immigrants. What it does not make clear is the same people they use in their polls adhere to President Trumps’ ideology of America First. Those same respondents have clearly shown that Americans should be hired first at prevailing wages before hiring migrants. It’s not that they are jobs that Americans won’t do, but Americans need a living wage to do them.
Illegal immigrants actually wind up costing the American taxpayer more than hiring an American in the first place. Total up all the benefits that an illegal can get, and the cost is prohibitive to the taxpayer. But to the corporations and farmers that hire them, illegals are a steal. They can pay them under the table, pay no taxes, and have a profit margin through the roof. These are the people who are driving the GOP establishment today.
And they are driving the GOP right off the cliff. Once again the floodgates will be open to the likes of San Fran Nan and her band of globalist progressive socialists to run this country back into the ground. The GOP, in the mold of Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Curbelo, GOP Rep. Jeff Denham, and many others, are willing to force the “discharge petition” onto the Presidents desk. They wish to defeat any opportunity for the conservative base to follow Donald Trump in his quest to make the job market active and growing. Wages will once again stagnate, and jobs in this country will go to those who will accept the least money while the American taxpayer kicks in what they may need to live.
Although the “discharge petition” is supposedly about DACA, there is more to it than that.
Chain migration will be allowed to continue. This importation of even more illegal immigrants will be many times higher than the American citizen birthrate. According to the Center of Immigration Studies Director of Research Steven Camarota, seven to eight million is the estimated number of foreign-born people that will arrive through chain migration. There have already been close to nine million chain migration recipients since 2005, changing demographics in many districts. Texas, Florida, and Arizona have all started sliding to the blue Progressive socialist side, because of chain migration and illegal immigrants, and the voting bloc that the leftists have carved out for them.
But this is what the progressive socialists are counting on. Those foreign-born people will be Democrat voters because the Democrat party will use the largesse of the country to shower them with benefits and then tell them that the only way to keep those benefits is to vote Democrat.
Studies have shown that immigrants prefer a significant protective government. Combined with the incessant drumbeat from the progressives about “income inequality,” the fact that many immigrants refuse to assimilate and the minor children they bring here, are entirely one-fourth of those in poverty, and one-third of the uninsured. The taxpayer once again is expected to supply all that the indigent people need. The redistribution of wealth and the expectation of these immigrants will bankrupt our country and do lasting damage, as the leftists use it to snowball the American economy and culture into socialism.
And believe it or not, the Koch Brothers are at the forefront of the push for amnesty. A letter was sent to both progressive socialists and GOP lackeys demanding amnesty for 1.8 million DACA eligible immigrants, claiming that the “DREAMers” are among our best and brightest and are only here through someone else’s illegality.
