Bernie Dominates Iowa Among Latinos Rooting for Open Borders and ‘Free’ Healthcare

Published

on

Although Iowa is generally not seen as diverse to Democrats, one city, West Liberty, stands out.

The school district in this city is one of the few with a majority minority population. According to the Iowa Department of Education, 55 percent of public school students were Hispanic.

For two residents of West Liberty, Sylvia Gutierrez and her boyfriend, Kevin Fernandez, immigration is a major issue, among others, that got them to support Sanders.

“I like his health care plan and his immigration plan,” Fernandez, expressing his discontent with how migrant families at the Mexico border have been treated. “We’re a big country, we should be able to help people out.”

142 people were in attendance at the caucus precinct in the West Liberty Community Center, where Sanders was able to pick up five delegates.

According to The Gazette, “Sanders had the clear bulk of support from the Latino community in the room, many of them caucusing for the first time.”

California Assembly member Ash Kalra sang praise about Sanders’ strong Hispanic support in Iowa.

He tweeted, “In a mostly Latino caucus site with 185 voters, “@berniesanders wins 94% of the vote! Here’s the Sanders precinct captain going through the process of selecting the 9 delegates for the campaign they have earned with the big win. ¡Sí se puede! #NotMeUs #UnidosConBernie

Based on multiple decades of voting trends, it is no surprise why Hispanics are gravitating toward Sanders, the most economically progressive of all candidates.

Many of the post-1965 Immigration Act migrants hail from countries with notorious levels of corruption and are largely acclimated to despotism and government overreach. A candidate like Sanders fits their voter profile almost perfectly.

For that reason, Trump must put severe forms of immigration restriction in place in order to prevent the U.S. from importing a new electorate that could radically transform American institutions.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.

Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.

On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.

“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019.  Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.

The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago.  According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.

Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.

However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
