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.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
