Big Issues like the Flood of Illegal Aliens and the National Debt Were Ignored at CPAC

Published

on

Several organizations were disappointed following the 2020 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

The theme of this year’s CPAC was “America vs. Socialism.” After all, this is an election cycle with a self-described democratic socialist in Bernie Sanders running for office.

Billy Binion of Reason wrote “notably absent from the CPAC agenda was anything pertaining to the debt, deficit, or current levels of absurd government spending—an odd choice for a conference that sought to position itself as a banner carrier for responsible fiscal policy.”

Instead, the conference focused around “incendiary characters like Diamond and Silk, Charlie Kirk, and Candace Owens, who do more to caricature the Right than provide constructive policy ideas. “

When it came to substance, this conference did not deliver whatsoever.

Binion highlighted what was truly missing about America’s growing deficit:

“Trump has ‘fully embraced the idea that deficits don’t matter,’ writes Steven Greenhut for Reason, with fantastical budget proposals that fail to right America’s fiscal ship. His 2021 budget, for instance, requests $4.8 trillion in spending—a 21 percent increase from when Trump took office.”

Binion concluded by stating that “’America vs. Socialism,’ it turns out, was real-life clickbait.”

Reason posted a brief snippet of this article on Twitter, tweeting “Notably absent from the CPAC agenda was anything pertaining to the debt, deficit, or current levels of absurd government spending.”

This tweet prompted a response from the Twitter account of Center for Immigration Studies who said “Also absent was anything about the excessively high level of immigration.”

Indeed, both immigration and mass migration are some of the biggest issues confronting America.

According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, there are 14.3 million illegal aliens, which cost American taxpayers $132 billion annually.

The national debt stands at $23 trillion at the moment.

However, the immigration question has a civilizational quality to it.

Based on the voting patterns of migrants coming to America after the 1965 Immigration Act, traditional American freedoms such as private gun ownership and freedom of speech could be potentially under threat once these migrants and their descendants become full-blown political participants.

For that reason, GOP voters view immigration as the #1 issue heading into November 2020, according to a BLP report.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
