Bolivian President Evo Morales is Out, His Supporters Want Civil War

Published

on

On November 11, 2019, the former president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, who resigned due to pressure from protestors and the military, received asylum from Mexico.

To say that Bolivia is going through political chaos is an understatement.

Morales left office on Sunday and was granted refuge “for humanitarian reasons and in light of the urgent situation Bolivia is facing,” according to Mexico’s foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, during a televised statement on Monday.

Now, there is a major power vacuum in Bolivia where various politicians are vying to succeed Morales.

Supporters of Morales are now coming to the former president’s defense.

In fact, Aurora Intel highlighted how “Thousands of Morales supporters (some of which are armed) are currently marching through El Alto towards La Paz while chanting “Now yes, civil war” #Bolivia

 

Morales originally said he was deposed in a “coup”, but then softened his rhetoric on Monday afternoon and called for an end to violence in Twitter messages.

“We can’t have a confrontation between Bolivian brothers,” he stated. “I am making an urgent appeal to resolve any differences with dialogue.”

The entire political crisis started when Morales claimed an electoral victory during the October 20 elections, which protestors and international observers believe was rigged.

Following the election results, demonstrators filled the streets and put the country at a political standstill. Eventually, the general of the Bolivian armed forces Williams Kaliman called for Morales to step down.

Morales was a staunch ally of the Venezuelan regime — the standard-bearer for Latin American socialism — and positioned himself as one of Latin America’s most charismatic leaders after the death of Hugo Chávez.

Having served in office since 2006, it appears that Morales has worn out his welcome.

Bolivia will need a genuine right-wing government to move forward.

As the U.S. Elections Approaches, Thousands of Immigrants are Gaining U.S. Citizenship

Published

on

America’s foreign voter base continues to grow ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

John Binder of Breitbart News noted that this is “adding a bloc of first-time foreign-born voters to the electorate.”

The last few months has seen delays in naturalization ceremonies thanks to the Wuhan virus pandemic. As of June, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency restarted ceremonies, with 2,000 immigrants being naturalized according to a report published by Camila DeChalus on June 10.

Other immigrants, who were expected to receive citizenship in 2020, are now pressing legal action against the federal government.

Prior to the crisis, USICS was naturalizing immigrants to the tune of 60,000 monthly.

Binder broke down the overall legal migration numbers:

Legal immigration levels — where 1.2 million immigrants secure Green Cards and nearly a million obtain naturalized citizenship annually — has driven up the nation’s foreign-born voting population to record levels.

The Breitbart writer highlighted another demographic trend that is taking place across America:

In February, Pew Research Center revealed that for the first time since 1970, one-in-ten U.S. voters will have been born outside the country in the 2020 election. High legal immigration levels have also ensured that Hispanic voters will replace black Americans as the largest voting minority for the first time in U.S. history.

According to research from The Atlantic, the New York Times, and Axios, Democrats tend to benefit from an increased foreign-born population.

Binder gave an overview about what these foreign voter numbers look like:

The Atlantic‘s Ronald Brownstein reveals nearly 90 percent of House congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average are won by Democrats. This means every congressional district with a foreign-born population exceeding 14 percent has a 90 percent chance of electing Democrats and only a ten percent chance of electing a Republican.

Exit polling data indicated that Trump won 49 percent of native-born Americans’ votes, whereas Clinton won 45 percent of the vote. As far as foreign voters were concerned, Clinton trounced Trump by raking in 64 percent of the immigrant vote, while Trump got only 31 percent.

At the moment, the Binder points out that the “U.S. is on track to import about 15 million new foreign-born voters in the next two decades due to existing legal immigration levels.”

Binder continued:

Those 15 million new foreign-born voters include about eight million who will arrive through chain migration, where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.

The U.S. is undergoing a massive demographic transformation thanks to public policy.

In previous eras, migration waves would at least be contained by legislative pauses that allowed for assimilation.

But now, elites are content by keeping the illegal and legal migration gravy train going without any pause in sight.

Given immigrant voting trends, many freedoms such as the right to bear arms and free speech could be in jeopardy thanks to Democrats gaining a new voting bloc that will help them stay in power for a long time.
