They highlighted a tweet that Cotton posted on, where he expressed his happiness with meeting up with Immigration Voice, a legal immigration advocacy group.
Great to see friends from @immivoice. I’m proud to cosponsor the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act. Skilled immigrants should be able to earn green cards in a timely manner, regardless of the country they came from—enabling them to further contribute to our communities.

The bill in question, H.R. 1044, would enable Indian nationals, among other groups, to displace American workers in the tech sector. The bill overwhelmingly passed the House. Although it has not made much progress in the Senate, H.R.1044 has a similar companion bill in S.386, which is currently facing roadblocks
That said, Cotton has reversed course —to some extent — since his 2019 legal migration boosting. A few months ago, he signed on to a letter calling for the Trump administration to suspend all new guest worker visas for sixty days and likewise suspend some types of guest worker visas for at least a year or until unemployment goes back to normal levels. Grassroots pressure is clearly making a difference, as politicians now recognize there is a strong demand for immigration patriotism.
This goes to show the importance of citizen pressure in changing elected officials’ behavior. The only way that patriotic immigration reform can be taken up by the GOP is through relentless grassroots activism. For an issue as high stakes as immigration, the grassroots must be ready to turn up the heat on politicians, no matter what they say on immigration. The failure to do so could see America radically transformed into an amorphous political blob, where traditional freedoms are no longer respected.
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.
