-Denies that refugee resettlement contractors make money off the racket

-Claims refugees are starting businesses & aren’t a drain on taxpayers

-Asserts that all legal immigration is a net benefit to the country

 

Lankford went on the Pat Campbell show to justify taking in refugees.

He believes that the refugees to Oklahoma have been “beneficial to Oklahoma’s economy” and are generally small business owners that are able to contribute.

Campbell asked Lankford “Does legal immigration adversely impact American citizens?”

Lankford responded, “No. Legal immigration helps us as a nation as well.” He cited the growing economy and the need to “maintain it” because of America’s low birthrates. In order to maintain this growth, Lankford believes that legal migration must fill in the void.

Under Governor Kevin Stitt, Oklahoma has been one of the states that has fallen for the refugee resettlement craze.

And it hasn’t come cheap.

John Binder of Breitbart News reported that “refugee resettlement costs American taxpayers approximately $9 billion every five years.”

However, mass migration shouldn’t just be viewed in a transactional sense.

Due to cultural differences and political outlooks, mass migration can fundamentally alter a country’s character if mass migration waves are not kept in check.

That’s why pauses —natural or legislative — should be implemented to ensure assimilation, socio-economic stability, and national integrity.

Hopefully, Republicans like Lankford can get the memo.

Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued. 

According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued. 

Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”

The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”

Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.

Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.

2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
