Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs took President Donald Trump to task for his comments on increased legal immigration.
Trump called for legal immigration to be increased beyond the 1.2 million legal immigrants that are admitted every year.
During a White House meeting with Ivanka Trump, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, Trump said:
We want a lot of people coming in … We want to have the companies grow and the only way they’re going to grow is if we give them the workers and the only way we’re going to have the workers is to do exactly what we’re doing.
Naturally, these comments made Dobbs’s blood boil.
According to Dobbs, Trump’s changing tune on immigration would do away with all the job gains and wage increases that the country’s working class has enjoyed thanks to Trump’s pro-worker policies.
Tonight I’d like to share a few thoughts, however, about the what I fear is a new direction for the president and his administration and what could very likely a catastrophe for our working men and women … our middle class and the American family — the very people this president has represented from the moment he announced he would run for the presidency.
In Dobbs’s view, Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue should have never been extended an invitation to the White House due to big business’s efforts undermine Trump’s “Hire American” agenda.
Dobbs went on Donohue’s attendance:
To be clear, the presence of the Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue is impossible to misinterpret. D.C.’s biggest lobbyist wants to reverse the direction of rising labor costs and return to the cheap labor policies of the 20 years that preceded the Trump presidency. I don’t even know why this White House would let him in the door. He is the enemy of this administration and absolutely tries to reverse every policy in business and economics that this president has advanced.
The TV host warned the Trump administration to avoid the multinational corporate agenda which aims to supply a never-ending flow of foreign workers to depress and stagnate wages while simultaneously outsourcing American jobs to reduce labor costs.
Dobbs went on:
If this White House thinks that listening to the beguiling prattle of Tim Cook, Tom Donahue, RINO Senators like Susan Collins is helpful to this president, then the battle for the forgotten man and woman in this country will be decided by the very establishment this president ran against — an establishment that spends vast sums of money and energy every single day trying to destroy him and his policies and his historic presidency. That Mr. Trump would advance the interests of the globalist elites ahead of our citizens would be a tragic reversal on any day. But today … that the southern border is being overrun by a record number of illegal immigrants, it all means that the White House has simply lost its way.
It seems like the mass importation model of legal immigrants continues in effect. Since former President H.W. Bush signed the Immigration Act of 1990, immigration has expanded substantially into the U.S. If this trend continues, there will be 69 million foreign-born individuals residing in the U.S by 2060.
In addition to economic effects, there are very real social and political consequences of permitting mass migration under a welfare state context. Europe has shown that mass migration in conjunction with a generous welfare state facilitates the creation of immigrant ghettoes and impede assimilation into general culture. Politically, third world migration tends to bring immigrants that are more likely to end up on the public dole and perpetuate the status quo of big government in the U.S by voting for more government goodies.
Instead of trying to pass sensible reforms like building a wall or ending birthright citizenship, Republicans did their best Houdini Act from 2016 to 2018, when they had control of all 3 branches of government and sat on the immigration issue. Now, there are talks of a Jared Kushner-backed amnesty bill being introduced in the next week.
All in all, things are not looking well for Trump’s immigration agenda. It seems that the Conservative Inc. approach to governance is making headway in the Trump Administration.
And that does not bode well for America First advocates.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
