According to new figures released by the Department of Labor on April 30, 2020, more than 3.8 million people filed for unemployment last week.
Taking into account the recent surge in jobless claims, total claims for unemployment now exceed 30 million in a matter of six weeks.
Per the Labor Department’s data, new unemployment claims reached 26 million last week with 4.4 million Americans making new claims in the previous week. Tristan Justice of The Federalist noted the following:
More than 5.2 million Americans had filed the week earlier, 6.6 million had filed the previous week, 6.9 million had filed the week before that, and 3.3 million people filed between March 15–21. Each week since the start of the pandemic stemming from the novel Wuhan coronavirus pandemic had shattered the previous record set for the most unemployment claims within a single week in 1982 with 695,000 new claims.
The national unemployment rate is expected to reach 15 to 20 percent when the new jobs report comes out May 8. According to the latest unemployment rate highlighted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate was at 4.4 percent in March before the Wuhan virus pandemic did most of its damage.
Congress has greenlit nearly $3 trillion in stimulus spending to bolster unemployment insurance at a time when the U.S. economy has been completely dislocated by government-imposed shutdowns.
Additionally, Congress established the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to provide crucial financial assistance to small businesses who are on the ropes thanks to the lockdowns. Justice broke down the numbers of the PPP:
The popular program was replenished with fresh cash in another nearly $500 billion stimulus bill earlier this month after a week-long partisan battle on Capitol Hill. Democrats stalled the bill, blocking clean-funding of the program to demand money for long-advocated programs. While small businesses received $310 billion in new relief, Congress also allocated money to hospitals, testing efforts and emergency disaster loans.
Although unemployment claims now surpass 30 million, a large segment of state and local leaders are hesitant about reopening the economy until mass testing is readily available or a vaccine is brought on the market, both developments are years away from likely emerging.
In the meantime, certain residents and representatives are getting restless with their state government’s inaction on re-opening as in the case of Texas.
Policymakers will have to re-open sooner or later, or they will have to deal with considerable unrest.
The White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now
Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.
She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.
Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.
Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.
However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.
She told BLP:
Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.
Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive. It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.
Kushner, an unelected individual, certainly should not negotiate to keep illegal aliens in our country! Illegals, by the way who have shown no regard for our laws, and have had ample time to become legal continue to snub our law.A Kushner Amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients will ensure that millions of Americans will stay home in November, which will quash President Trump’s re-election.
DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.
Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.
This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.
Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.
Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.
In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.
Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.
This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.
The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
