After a strong performance in the 2019 elections for Virginia’s General Assembly, Democratic Governor Ralph Northam has volunteered to take in more refugees.
Northam is following in the footsteps of former Massachusetts governor (and now Democratic presidential candidate) Deval Patrick.
The Virginia Governor responded to President Trump’s Executive Order 13888. Pawel Styrna of Immigration Reform pointed out that “the presidential order was dated September 26, but Northam waited two months (until November 25) to respond and roll out the welcome mat for more refugees.”
Under EO 13888, the federal government will no longer resettle refugees in areas where either the state or local governments have disapproved new refugee resettlement under the State Department’s Reception and Placement Program (RPP).
This marks a considerable break from Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, and his policy of overriding the objections of state governors and local communities to the inflow of new refugees.
In Northam’s letter, he stated his objective was to “reaffirm Virginia’s position that we welcome refugee resettlement in the Commonwealth.”
Northam then lectured Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about the flaws of America’s refugee policy, despite the fact that Northam nor any state governor determines how many refugees the U.S will admit and what countries they should come from.
Additionally, Northam complained about Trump’s decisions to reduce the number of refugees resettled in states like Virginia. Northam stressed that “we have the capacity to accept and help more refugees than we currently have.”
Styrna asks an important question:
Moreover, why are the preferences of refugees – who are receiving both the benefits of a new life in a safe, secure democracy and thousands of dollars of taxpayer assistance – more important than the needs of Americans?
He notes that Northern Virginian is already facing considerable problems:
After all, suburban Northern Virginia is already facing many of the problems associated with urban/suburban sprawl, including: a high cost of living, high rents, heavy traffic, and overcrowded public schools.
The points Styrna makes are valid.
However, Northam’s enthusiasm with mass migration may have electoral implications.
Certain outlets like the Washington Post boast about a “younger, more racially diverse electorate combined with a backlash against President Trump” to create a massive political shift in counties like Prince William and Loudoun.
On top of that, white voters now account for less than 70 percent of Virginia’s electorate, thus indicating a growing demographic shift. BLP reported that over 90 percent of congressional districts with foreign populations above the national average ended up going Democrat in the 2018 elections.
Should these trends continue, Democrats will likely dominate Virginia. On top of that, laxer immigration standards could overwhelm basic public functions of the state and create massive social upheaval.
Now more than ever, immigration reform — moratoriums, ending chain migration, ending birthright citizenship, etc. — must be carried out to preserve the viability of the U.S. as a functioning nation state.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
