Under everyone’s noses on December 3, 2019, the U.S. House passed a bill that would open up a backdoor for wealthy Chinese nationals to buy their way into U.S. citizenship by lending money to the U.S. real estate industry.
Democratic Congressman David Cicilline depicted the bill as a trade boost between the United States and Portugal. However, the bill allows Chinese oligarchs to enter America after first buying Portuguese citizenship.
“Congress is getting duped. … [The bill is] creating a new path for Chinese people,” a Capitol Hill source told Breitbart News.
Wealthy Chinese nationals have the ability to buy “golden visa” citizenship from Portugal’s government after just residing in Portugal for 35 days. If House bill H.R. 565 gets the Senate’s approval and becomes law, then new Chinese citizens of Portugal will be able to move into America by acquiring E-1 Treaty Trader or E-2 Treaty Investor renewable visas.
The EB-5 program allows wealthy foreigners to buy green cards by lending money to American businesses, primarily to real estate investors.
Neil Munro of Breitbart notes the implications of visa expansion:
The EB-5 bill is just one small part of Washington’s immigration policies which widen the wealth gap between coastal and heartland states.
For roughly 30 years, immigration has supercharged the economic growth in the coastal states. The vast supply of visa workers and legal immigrants arriving at Los Angeles International Airport, for example, means that California investors can ignore the pool of American labor in heartland states. The coastal investors can fund new job creation centers close to their neighborhoods, and fill those jobs with the legal immigrants who arrive daily from India, Africa, South America, and Asia.
The flow of government-supplied labor denies jobs, investments, opportunities, and wealth to many Americans in slower-growing, lower-priced, interior towns.
States, communities, and families expend a massive effort to birth, rear, and educate millions of young Americans — but coastal investors can ignore them and simply hire workers imported from around the world.
Indeed, these visa programs cause economic disruption in the U.S.
In addition, they serve as an entry point for corrupt international oligarchs from predatory states such as China who wage corporate espionage and use their own companies and economic actors to advance their interests at the expense of American interests.
Migration waves that are seen in the U.S. at the moment can be potentially disruptive to the U.S.’s functionality as a nation state.
This, among many other reasons, demonstrates why policymakers must put a pause to overall migration to the U.S.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
