Betrayal? Lou Dobbs Calls Out President Trump for Plan to Increase Immigration

Published

on

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.

Dobbs added:

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.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
