President Donald Trump has apparently had a change of heart regarding open immigration following a massive corporate lobbying push to import more foreign workers into the US that would boost multinational profits at the expense of US workers.
“We want to have a very strong border, but we want to have a lot of people coming in,” Trump said at a White House summit this week with the corporate elite. “A lot of people don’t understand that. They think we’re shutting it out. We’re not shutting it out. We want people to come in, but they have to come in through a process.”
Trump credits his marvelous economy, sitting currently at about 3.6 percent, for why all this foreign labor is necessary.
“We’re going to let a lot of people come in because we need workers,” Trump said yesterday. “We have to have workers. These are low numbers, and in one way I love it, but in another way I don’t want to make it hard for you to get those companies rolling … with really great people.”
While Trump acts like this is a sudden change of heart spurred by the fact that his economy is doing well, it is more likely that his flip-flop has come as the result of a well-funded globalist lobbying campaign engineered by Trump’s son-in-law and international poster child for the dangers of nepotism, Jared Kushner.
McClatchy DC reported on Kushner’s scheming with individuals from the Koch-affiliated Libre Initiative, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and other open border groups as he exploited the government shutdown crisis to push amnesty:
“Top White House adviser Jared Kushner told members of Latino advocacy organizations on Thursday that President Donald Trump was willing to give 1.8 million Dreamers permanent protections from deportation and to reopen the government in exchange for $25 billion in border security, including some wall funding, LULAC President Domingo Garcia said.
Officials from the League of United Latin American Citizens, Libre Initiative and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce met with President Donald Trump’s son-in-law — and briefly, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen — on Thursday to discuss ways to find a compromise in order to reopen the government…
Garcia said Kushner spent an hour with the group and was very engaged. Kushner cited Trump’s State of the Union address in 2017 where he indicated his support for a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers…
Garcia said Kushner made it clear that this was their opening bid and they were asking for the Democrats to come back with a counter, but they had not heard anything.”
The situation worsened in February when Kushner allowed globalist organizations to dominate talks on immigration reform. Breitbart News exposed organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, George W. Bush Center, and several trade groups pushing for cheap labor were given seats at the table while patriotic, ‘America First’ organizations were sidelined from discussions. As the lobbying continued, Trump’s rhetoric has gotten weaker and weaker on immigration.
“We need an immigration policy that helps all Americans thrive, flourish, prosper. We need an immigration policy that’s going to be great for our corporations and our great companies,” Trump said during an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. “We need an immigration policy where people coming into our country can love our country and love our fellow citizens.”
This is a far cry from what Trump was saying in 2017 when he supported the RAISE Act. Introduced by Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue’s (R-GA), that legislation would have reduced legal immigration limits by half to give higher-waged employment to American workers rather than undercutting them for corporate profits.
With President Kushner firmly in control over immigration, the Trump of 2017 is a distant, fading memory. More capitulations are to be expected in the months to come, as Trump wants big business firmly in his corner heading into what is sure to be a brutal 2020 election cycle.
OPINION: Joe Biden is Too Old to Be President
He would be the oldest President to be sworn in on Inauguration Day, by far.
Joe Biden is too old to serve as President of the United States.
He would be the oldest President to be sworn in on Inauguration Day. By far. President Trump currently holds the record for the oldest President to be sworn in, entering office at the age of 70.
Biden would smash that record by almost a decade, assuming the presidency at the ripe age of 78 in the event of a November victory. He’s 77 right now and turns 78 in late November. President Trump is a full presidential term younger than Biden, and would stand to leave office in 2025 at roughly the approximate age that Joe Biden is now.
No President has even served in the office in their 80’s. Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan left office at the ages of 70 and 77 respectively, with the natural process of aging beginning to show itself at the end of the Gipper’s second term. American Presidents have generally left office in their early-to-mid 60’s or even fifties, a pattern that endures even into the late 20th century when advancements in medicine considerably increased the life expectancy of Americans.
Some commentators have lamented that the 2020 election is a final showdown between politicians of the Baby Boomer generation. But that analysis ignores that Joe Biden is actually too old to qualify as a Baby Boomer, having been born in 1942, making him a member of the Silent Generation.
The argument for Biden’s advanced age as a disqualifier stands independently of the former Vice President and career politician’s serious, enduring and consistent indications of cognitive decline. Even the healthiest of individuals in Biden’s age demographic are often and suddenly liable to health challenges, a burden that would be improper to place upon Biden and the American public.
Opposing Biden’s candidacy on the basis of his age is not a slight to senior Americans. Many Americans of his age demographic would admit their sharpest years are behind them. There’s a reason why tens of millions and Americans have saved and worked for decades for purposes of retirement in their elder years, and why American society is broadly supportive of Social Security benefits that enable our elders to enjoy the lifestyle they deserve in their 70’s and 80’s.
Joe Biden is too old to be President.
