As Alabama approaches election day in a contentious GOP primary to challenge Democratic Senator Doug Jones, former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville is facing questions over his track record on immigration policy.
The football coach, who moved full-time from Florida to Alabama in order to campaign in the state, has faced criticism for hiring a former aide to Facebook oligarch Mark Zuckerberg’s pro-mass immigration lobbying group as a campaign strategist. Rob Jesmer is a former lead Republican consultant for FWD.us, a handsomely funded pro-amnesty group that has spearheaded attempts to ram through numerous cheap labor giveaways to corporations such as Zuckerberg’s Facebook.
Jesmer was tasked with whipping up support for amnesty and new visa programs among GOP legislators as Mark Zuckerberg’s Republican point man. Why he’s managing the campaign of a Republican candidate who claims to oppose amnesty is unclear.
Tuberville’s own statements on immigration policy have made his conservative bona fides even more questionable. He’s appeared to endorse policies that tacitly permit illegal immigration as long as those come up sign up for some sort of government identification program.
Tuberville alluded to this in a July campaign speech.
“We got 100,000 people a month coming across the border. We don’t know who they are. We need them. But at least we got to know who they are.”
It’s probably safe to assume that Alabama’s Republican voters don’t think the United States “needs” a massive influx of 100,000 people crossing the national borders illegally every month.
Tuberville seemed to endorse a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants when speaking at another campaign event in August.
“There are people coming across the border that need jobs, okay, and we want them to come over here, we just need to know who’s here, okay. Put the wall up, then we let them come in, and become citizens like we all became citizens.”
Tuberville does claim to oppose amnesty, but such vague talking points- that one could easily expect to hear from corporate lobbyists or even open borders advocates- make him hard to take seriously on the topic.
Starkly contrasting with Tuberville’s questionable track record is former Republican Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, running in the race to return to his old U.S Senate seat. Sessions’ conservative track record on immigration- which runs across decades in the Senate- is in all likelihood the strongest that any Senator in the country can claim.
Sessions holds a nearly perfect grade of A+ over the course of his 20 year Senate career from NumbersUSA, a conservative immigration policy think tank and watchdog organization, almost singlehandedly defeating numerous amnesty proposals spearheaded by an alliance of big business and Democratic political interests. He’s the only senator to hold such a grade, and such a nearly flawless track record is almost unmatched among members of the House of Representatives.
Polling on the heated primary shows Sessions with a small lead. The primary election for the nomination will be held on March 3rd. If no candidate receives 50% of the vote, a runoff between the first and second place winner will be held on March 31st.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
