IDIOTS: Cato Calls for Expanding Mass Migration as the Wuhan Flu Spreads Across the U.S.

Published

on

David Bier, immigration policy analyst at the Cato Institute, is calling for protecting legal migration during the Wuhan Flu outbreak.

He claims that “President Trump initially kept reasonable travel restrictions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, but with the virus spreading inside the United States, he is already shifting from minimizing its threat — his first instinct — to use it to justify restrictive immigration policies that he wanted anyway.”

The Cato analyst added that “A broader move to general nativism at this time would be disastrous, as so many immigrants are leading the U.S. response to the virus.”

According to Bier, “eight of the major companies developing treatments and vaccines for the virus are heavily reliant on foreign workers.”

He added that from “2010 to 2019, we found that the Department of Labor approved the companies developing treatments or vaccines for coronavirus to hire more than 11,000 immigrants and H-1B high skilled foreign workers.”

Bier is of the opinion that “Without these workers, America’s hope of treating and saving thousands of lives at risk from the coronavirus would greatly diminish.”

He ultimately calls for “completely exempting all pharmaceutical researchers and scientists as well as doctors and physicians from the H-1B and green card limits and expediting their processing. It should specifically enact legislation to permit in more foreign doctors to underserved areas—particularly in rural areas.”

Whatever legal migrants we have should not be the subject of our ire. They’re here and we should be thankful for their efforts in combatting this pandemic alongside native-born American professionals. We should salute them for their help and encourage their assimilation efforts. But any type of suggestion that Trump’s policies to restrict immigration are xenophobic or nativist is asinine at best. It’s what any rational national entity has done throughout history. Migration generally comes in waves and is then paused to promote assimilation, social cohesion, and economic rebalancing.

Not to mention, the H-1B visa program is known for its notorious levels of economic displacement.

John Binder of Breitbart News noted the following:

There are about 650,000 H-1B visa foreign workers in the U.S. at any given moment. Americans are often laid off in the process and forced to train their foreign replacements, as highlighted by Breitbart News.

The desire to bring in migrants to help out with our healthcare is all good and well, but we have to ask ourselves what are the actual costs of these policies?

Let’s face it, America’s mass migration charade has gone on for too long. Many of the neoliberal, globalists think that importing thousands if not millions of people to fix some of the problems we have in America will be a viable solution. This ignores that radical mass migration policies come with second and third order effects that many policymakers don’t perceive when crafting the policy. For libertarian mass migration boosters, they fail to recognize that many of the migrants once they and/or their kids end up receiving citizenship inevitably vote for the big government policies they frequently deride. It’s an exercise in suicidal collapse, but for organizations obsessed with cheap labor, this doesn’t enter equation.

For a libertarian organization like Cato, they have to get their priorities straight and understand there are multiple ways to skin a cat. They should be asking themselves the following:  Why not roll back the insane maze of medical regulations that prevent countless American doctors from entering the medical field? While we’re at it, they should also be directing their focus on the absurd levels of regulation the FDA has enacted which has stifled the entrance of life-saving drugs. It would behoove Cato to spend more of their time scaling back the regulatory state — which is what they purportedly claim to do — rather than clamoring for more immigration.

None of these reforms require having to import more migrants. The U.S. is clearly reaching a breaking point on this front.

Cato policy analysts should think about other alternatives to these policy issues instead of putting out pieces shilling for more mass migration in such sensitive times.

The Department of Homeland Security Has Plans to Undermine Immigration Enforcement

The Biden administration is working towards a de facto abolition of ICE.

Are Democrats going to appease their radical base by abolishing ICE?

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is now putting forward a plan to restructure the federal deportation agency in a way that effectively guts its traditional role of arresting and deporting criminal aliens in the country. 

According to a Washington Times report by Stephen Dinan, Mayorkas revealed the idea last week in a telephone meeting with ICE personnel in Texas. In this call, Mayorkas proposed taking 4,000 members of ICE off the streets and transitioning them into roles of criminal investigators.

As a result of this proposed change, ICE agents would no longer be working to enforce laws against aliens illegally residing in the U.S. This entails reducing arrests and deportations.

A number of deportation officers said this move was similar to a major city police department shifting its beat cops into detective roles. As a result of this change, no one would be left to patrol the streets for lesser crimes.

“This is an administrative abolishment of ICE as we currently know it,” an ICE source told The Washington Times.

After the phone call, there were still many questions regarding Mayorkas’ intentions with ICE. Questions about what new training ICE agents would have to go through and the pay structure they would be subject to were not addressed.

According to The Washington Times, Mayorkas was of the opinion that ICE officers were in the wrong pay system. Mayorkas allegedly said that deportation officers are in the wrong pay scale but did suggest the idea of a pay raise.

Under the current federal government job system, deportation officers are categorized as GS-1801 jobs and usually fall under GS-12 pay scale. Criminal investigators hold GS-1811 jobs and fall under the GS-13 pay scale.

Mayorkas’ ploy is to use the promotion offers as a way to get ICE agents on board with his plan to gut deportation enforcement plans.

However, one source revealed that many officers feared that they were being forced out of their original jobs.

“It’s all spin,” the source declared. “We’re not going to abolish ICE, but we really are going to abolish ICE as you know it.”

The abolition of ICE is one of the chief slogans for the multicultural Left in recent years, which is committed to importing destabilization levels of migrants.

How ICE’s abolition would look is “tougher to pin down” as Dinan outlined.

Dinan continued:

They usually aren’t talking about investigating smugglers, street gangs or child pornographers. Homeland Security Investigations, with its 7,000-strong force of GS-1811 criminal investigators, perform those duties.

So far, the “Abolish ICE” crowd is in opposition to the Enforcement and Removal Operations, which is generally tasked with arrests, detention, and deportation of people illegally in the country.

Dinan listed off where the majority of these arrests came from: 

Most of those arrests come from deportation officers picking up people who end up in local prisons or jails. But some fraction are at-large arrests in the community — particularly in areas where state and local sanctuary policies block access to prisons or jails.

The administrative tweaks Mayorkas is implementing are indeed a way to defang ICE in a subtle manner. A traditional legislative effort would likely cause massive backlash from voters who would likely take their anger out on politicians at the polls in 2022.

Border security is crucial in maintaining a stable polity. Republicans who have any iota of nationalism in their bones would take this issue and run with it.

Immigration still remains an issue that resonates well with the grassroots.
