Published

on

In 2018, Homeland Security reached a five-year high in citizenship application approvals.

It also swore in more immigrants as naturalized citizens according to a new statistical report released on the night of July 26, 2019.

These numbers contradict criticism from Democratic officials who claim that there are backlogs at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The Homeland Security branch handles all legal immigration matters.

Additionally, the new report indicates that the government is processing more asylum-seeker petitions than any of the past four years despite talks about a supposed “crackdown” on asylum seekers. This included a 61 percent increase from 2017 to 2018 in asylum applications.

When all categories of humanitarian programs are considered — asylum, refugees, crime victim visas, Temporary Protected Status and screening for credible fear or reasonable fear of persecution — these numbers were 32 percent higher than in 2017.

USCIS has come under fire in recent years, with immigrants’ rights groups accusing the Trump administration of building a bureaucratic “wall” to deny people easy paths to citizenship.

Hispanic Congressional Democrats claim that things are so bad that they’ve requested and have actually been granted an investigation, which is being carried out by the Government Accountability Office.

The chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Congressman Joaquin Castro, said that this supposed backlog is part of “President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.”

According to The Washington Times, the backlog in citizenship applications began during the end of the Obama administration. Yet, nobody complained about this when Obama was in office.

However, Democrats might be complaining now after new evidence has shown that migrants bloc vote for their party.

Beto O’Rourke’s surprising performance in Texas demonstrates how demographic shift has made states like Texas more competitive for Democrats.

For that reason, Democrats are clamoring for all sorts of schemes from amnesty to getting rid of the citizenship exam to get as many migrants into their voter pipeline as possible.

Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election

America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
