DACA Recipient is Endorsing Houston Republican Candidates

Published

on

Why is a DACA recipient endorsing 2020 Republican Congressional and judicial candidates for the Texas GOP primary?

According to sources close to BLP, Hilario Yanez, a beneficiary of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, has endorsed candidates in the Houston area as an Advisory Board member of the Houston Business Realty Coalition PAC.

Yanez came illegally to the United States as a young child.

He is now authorized to say and work in the U.S. thanks to DACA, which then-President Barack Obama implemented without congressional approval, while Republicans objected to the process on constitutional grounds.

Establishment GOP types have generally promoted Yanez as a way of hitting back at Democrats for their obstructive ways.

Yanez was invited to speak before a Congressional hearing last year to talk about his experience which was played on C-SPAN.

Although Yanez supports DACA’s aim of letting young immigrants who entered the country illegally as children stay in America, he doesn’t think the process is legal.

“I believe what former President Obama did was the right thing to do but the wrong way to do it, which is why I believe DACA is unconstitutional and why President Trump has every right to get rid of it,” Yanez said during a testimony before the judiciary committee last year. “The best way then and today is action by Congress.”

“Let’s stand behind a permanent solution to DACA and border security reform and fix it once and for all,” Yanez concluded in his testimony.

Although Yanez has supported Republican causes, U.S. immigration laws should still be respected.

The GOP should have thought twice before giving the DACA recipient a platform and letting him join their ranks.

If the GOP wants to be taken more seriously and maintain its political viability, it must stand against illegal immigration and take a much more restrictive approach to legal migration as well.

And all of this starts with who they let in to the party.

Conservatives would be wise to vet the people who work within their favorite organizations.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

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.
