Christy Shaw, the Member Services Manager for immigration restriction group NumbersUSA, recently penned a piece highlighting Latin American countries latest moves to restrict migration.
She alluded to a piece by Andrew Selee, President of The Migration Policy Institute, discussing how mass migration is changing in the Caribbean and Latin America.
One of the most notable mass migration waves has been the one coming from Venezuela. Thanks to economic destabilization brought about by its government’s socialist policies, Venezuela has experienced an unprecedented refugee crisis. So far, 4.5 million Venezuelans have escaped to neighbors in South America. Additionally, thousands of Nicaraguans are fleeing their country due to economic insatiability and political repression.
Selee noted the following in his articles:
As a result of these shifts, many Latin American and Caribbean countries find themselves having to develop coherent immigration policies to respond to significant inflows… increasingly, governments have started imposing tighter requirements for entry.
It is interesting how foreign governments can casually implement immigration restriction, but the U.S. immediately gets attacked when it even floats the idea of attempting to control its borders. In her piece Shaw argued “that similar efforts to reform and tighten our own U.S. immigration system is completely demonized. Bottomline, a responsible U.S. immigration system sets a powerfully positive example for other countries to follow, and many countries have stricter immigration laws than the United States!”
Although there are legitimate causes for people to pursue refugee status, countries ultimately have national interests and constraints. They simply can’t accept everyone and allow for destabilizing levels of migrants to come in.
Countries like Colombia and Chile have already had to make immigration reforms because of the large influx of Venezuelans and other migrant groups to their respective countries. The U.S. should take note and actually begin to restrict migration given how its promoted mass migration since 1965.
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.
