A group of Republican senators and congressmen are requesting that President Donald Trump expand his recent executive order to halt visas for foreign workers as over 33 million Americans are out of work.
Breitbart News reported that Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Representatives Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Lance Gooden (R-TX), Mo Brooks (R-AL), and Matt Gaetz (R-FL) sent Trump a letter urging him to keep unemployed Americans from having to compete with foreign workers during a time when shutdowns in response to the Wuhan virus pandemic have thrown millions out of work
In April, Trump issued an executive order which slowed visa processing for foreigners looking for work and extended family green cards. When taking these groups’ numbers into consideration, they only represent less than ten percent of total legal immigration on a yearly basis.
John Binder of Breitbart highlighted some of the elected officials’ demands:
- Suspend admissions of all foreign visa workers for at least 60 days
- Suspend visas to foreign workers for at least a year or until national unemployment levels return to normal
- Suspend the EB-5 visa program that provides green cards to wealthy foreign investors, primarily from China
The senators wrote:
That suspension should, at a minimum, include H-2B visas (nonagricultural seasonal workers), H-1B visas (specialty occupation workers), and the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program (extension of foreign student visas after graduation). We also urge you to suspend the EB-5 immigrant visa program, effective immediately.
There are millions of high school and college students who, if not for the coronavirus pandemic, would be walking across a graduation stage in front of their families and friends over the next few weeks. Instead of celebrating their hard work, most will be receiving their diplomas in the mail while worrying about whether they will be able to find a job in this market. For many high school graduates and college students, they will spend the next few weeks at home making tough decisions about delaying or foregoing college this fall due to their limited family resources. There is no reason why these young people, especially, should not have access to seasonal, nonagricultural work such as summer resort employment or landscaping before those positions are given to imported foreign labor under the H-2B program.
Additionally, the congressmen are pressing Trump to “suspend the issuance of guest worker visas until unemployment returns to normal levels” in addition to implementing a permanent suspension of the EB-5 visa program.
“With the unemployment rate at levels unseen since the Great Depression, our government should not be importing the competition of American workers,” the elected officials stated.
“We urge you to further use your legal authority and suspend substantially all temporary guest worker programs,” the federal representatives wrote. “Such action would provide the greatest possible protection for American workers and further exemplify your commitment to the economic prosperity of our great nation.”
Recent surveys indicate that there is massive support for halting legal immigration. According to a recent Washington Post/University of Maryland poll, about 65 percent of all Americans said they support suspending all legal immigration during the Wuhan virus pandemic.
The U.S. generally admits approximately 1.2 million legal immigrants on an annual basis, who can permanently reside in the country. Additionally, foreign nationals receive another 1 million work visas. Binder notes that “These visa programs — like the H-1B visa, the J-1 visa, the EB-5 visa, and the F-1 student visa — hugely benefit China.”
Binder notes some other unsettling facts:
Even as more than 33 million Americans have filed for unemployment in recent weeks, the Department of Homeland Security, State Department, and Agriculture Department have waived visa requirements for H-2A visa farmworkers and H-2B visa nonagricultural workers to help fast-track their entry into the U.S.
In addition to the socio-economic aspects of mass migration, there are several alarming aspects of mass migration.
Should such mass migration trends continue, the right to bear arms and free speech could be in jeopardy.
Trump should take this letter seriously and go above and beyond by implementing further restrictions.
America desperately needs to put an end to the post-1965 mass migration status quo.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
