Mayor Pete Wants to Bring in Over 100,000 Refugees Annually

Published

Although he has not been as vocal on the immigration issue, 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg unveiled an immigration plan on December 22, 2019.

Vox reported that it “would reverse the Trump administration’s enforcement policies, push for a pathway to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants, and streamline the process of applying for asylum and other forms of legal immigration.”

Buttigieg is perceived to be the “moderate” in the race due to him not supporting radical migration policies like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who support the decriminalization of unauthorized border crossings and fundamentally restructuring immigration enforcement agencies such as the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and ICE.

One of the most notable features in Buttigieg’s immigration platform is how it raises the cap on annual refugee admissions to 125,000 during his first year in office, and he backs legislation that would establish an annual floor of 95,000 admissions.

Mass migration has become a religion of sorts in American politics.

Buttigieg is faithfully doing his part by championing the latest refugee craze.

Although not as extreme, BLP has reported on Republicans doing their part in trying to resettle refugees in their own states, thus showing how out of touch both political establishments are with the American people.

In President Trump’s defense, he set the refugee cap at 18,000, which although much smaller than Obama era numbers, should still concern immigration patriots.

Real immigration patriotism would involve ending these refugee programs and putting pressure on other countries to settle these refugees themselves.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
