Later this week, the U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether the 2020 U.S. Census’s question over citizenship status is constitutional.
Mass migration advocates worry that adding a citizenship question to the census would undercount 6.5 million people. Their concerns center around both political power and federal funding for states.
According to a Fox News report, advocates of border security argue that mass migration is costing American taxpayers a hefty sum of money
Dan Stein, the director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, says “We’re talking about billions of dollars in taxpayer benefits over the next few years.”
Stein argues that “The payout for the taxpayer is enormous and income to the Treasury is miniscule.”
A study that FAIR conducted in 2017 found that illegal immigrants “are a net consumer of taxpayer benefits worth more than $100 billion a year, not including the cost of enforcing the border.”
In theory, federal benefits are supposed to be off limits to illegal immigrants. However, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reports that more than 25,000 illegal immigrants receive subsidized housing. Children also receive free education and most of them qualify for English lessons and school lunch programs.
Under federal law, hospital and clinics are forced to provide urgent care to anyone regardless of their legal status.
Pregnant women are also able to receive prenatal and postpartum care through the Women, Infants and Children program. Medicaid pays for infant delivery costs.
A Journal of the American Medical Association study discovered that a federal-state immigrant insurance program costs $2 billion annually in emergency treatments. On top of that, infant delivery expenses totaled $1.24 billion.
Although illegal immigrants can’t receive food stamps, their children, through birthright citizenship, can. The Center for Immigration Studies found that 31 percent of these families use the SNAP program and more than 50 percent of Central American families are on at least one welfare program.
BLP reported that migrant crossings are on the verge of exceeding Bush-era levels.
Taking all these factors into consideration, GOP voters see immigration as the #1 issue during the 2020 elections.
With border crossings on the rise, immigration will continue to be a hot-button issue in American politics.
White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt
The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.
And they did so because of white guilt.
VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.
I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.
Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.
President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.
“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.
Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”
None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.
Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.
America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
