Seven House Republicans decided to join mass migration-supporting Democrats by voting for an amnesty bill that would protect illegal immigrants from deportation and give millions a pathway to permanent citizenship.

The seven Republicans who voted for amnesty were:

Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick

Texas Rep. Will Hurd

Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse

New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith

Michigan Rep. Fred Upton

Interestingly enough, Brian Fitzpatrick, Fred Upton, Chris Smith, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Will Hurd voted for H.R. 8, the universal gun registration bill back in February. This bill was the largest expansion of gun control at the federal level since the passage of the Brady Act in the 1990s.

The American Dream and Promise Act went through the House with a 236-187 vote. This legislation was introduced by Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard and will grant permanent status to illegal aliens who entered the U.S. illegally as minors, as well as to aliens living in America under Temporary Protected Status.

Not only are the chances of this bill dying in the Republican-controlled Senate high, but it will likely receive Trump’s veto as well. Trump claims that this bill would undermine “key administration immigration objectives and policy priorities, such as protecting our communities and defending our borders.”

This latest vote count demonstrates that there are still Republicans in Congress that cannot be relied on for key issues such as gun rights and immigration. Grassroots activists should have these names on file come primary season so that they can put up more conservative alternatives to challenge these politicians.

Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel

Post-pandemic America will not look the same.

Published

on

Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.

In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates. 

Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.” 

Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.

According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:

If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.  

Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain. 

If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
