They were gathered for the Iowa caucuses in overwhelming support of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
This caucus was catered to immigrants and non-English speakers.
The Des Moines Register reported that the caucus room “was almost exclusively non-white.”
Sanders received 129 of 142 supporters after the first alignment. One more person supported him in the second and final alignment.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren were not able to reach the 15% viability threshold.
The attendees consisted of non-English speakers and immigrants.
In fact, one of the observers complained when the caucus started only in English.
“How can they vote when they don’t know their language?” the woman commented. “This is wrong. You need to speak to them in their language.”
Zlatka Kendic, the caucus chair, praised the caucus for its diversity, which included people from Bosnia and Bhutan or of Mexican or Asian descent.
The caucus took place at a mosque, so attendees had to remove their shoes before entering.
“The mosque is considered your home, so it’s important: You wear your shoes outside where it’s dirty, so when you come into your home, you’re supposed to take your shoes off out of that respect,” Kendic, a Bosnian native, said.
Hari Pokhrel, a native of Bhutan, said she liked Sanders’ “Medicare for All” healthcare plan and debt-free college.
“I want to vote for Bernie Sanders because (of) ‘Medicare for All’ and college for all,” the 34-year-old said.
Natasha Fernandez-Silber, a volunteer with the Sanders campaign, claimed that the results from this caucus disproved the “Bernie bro” stereotype. This refers to the common perception that Sanders only gets support from white men.
“We have the most working-class base, we have the most diverse base. We obviously have the most enthusiastic supporters,” she said.
Indeed, Sanders’ dominance is to be expected given the voting trends of migrants.
It’s no secret that the post-1965 Immigration Act migrant wave is basically a solid voting bloc for the Democrat Party.
Sanders is very likely aware of this.
While mass migration makes for great electoral politics in the Democrat Party, the social outcomes are a whole different story. From depressed wages to decreasing social trust, mass migration is a major burden for America.
Donald Trump was elected to push back against the mass migration trends of the last 50 years. It’s imperative that he slow down immigration.
If not, the Republican Party risks becoming irrelevant at the national level and the very fabric of the American nation could potentially be ripped apart thanks to multiple decades of uncontrolled migration.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump
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.
