For nearly two decades, FOX News has gained the reputation of being a conservative-leaning outlet, but that is rapidly changing in the age of Trump. They are going increasingly globalist, leaning in a more leftist, pro-Islam direction, and pushing for Trump to admit more immigrants to the US.
FOX News published an op/ed written by Liberty Vittert, the Visiting Assistant Professor at Washington University in St. Louis, arguing in favor of more immigration. This academic, who also serves on the board of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, claimed that socialist programs pushed by FDR like Social Security and Medicare need to be propped up by admitting foreigners in the US due to lagging birthrates.
“If the birthrate continues to decline and we don’t see an increase in immigration, we have a real problem. America won’t be able to sustain basic government programs like Medicare and Social Security,” Vallert argued.
Because “we simply won’t have enough people to pay taxes” in the years to come due to government overspending, this means it’s time to open up the flood gates so immigrants can keep the federal ponzi scheme going a little while longer.
“Right now, legal immigration stands at 800,000 people per year. If it stays at that level, we’ll add eight million foreign-born workers over the next ten years. Couple that number with the 35 million new American-born workers, and we won’t even come close to paying our bills or filling our jobs,” Vallert wrote.
“We must increase immigration or risk an economic disaster,” Vallert concluded.
Vallert claims that we “have unprecedented levels of low unemployment in America” but that is not necessarily the case as manufacturing and construction jobs are already beginning to stagnate.
The Associated Press reported on Wednesday that Trump’s latest jobs report shows the slowest growth in 18 months. The job increases plummeted from 197,000 in Feburary to 129,000 in March. The gains came primarily from the education and health care fields, which added 56,000 jobs in the month.
“It’s fair to say that the job market is throttling back meaningfully from where it was months ago,” said Mark Zandi, the chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, to the AP.
Small businesses added a mere 6,000 jobs in March. Manufacturing and construction companies actually cut jobs during the month. The Trump economy is faltering for the blue collar workers most responsible for putting him in the White House in 2016.
The job market has certainly improved since Trump came into office, but pro-immigration activists may be exaggerating the progress to push for more cheap foreign labor.
Trump seems to be buying into it, as he has softened his immigration stance considerably in recent months:

University academics like Vallert want to bring in scores of new immigrants to further squeeze American workers out of the contracting job market. It may prop up socialist federal policies for a little while longer, but saving big government will ultimately come at the expense of blue collar workers in the US.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
