Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke wants to open the floodgates of immigration amnesty.
In an exchange with an Iowa voter, O’Rourke endorsed an amnesty plan that would legalize virtually all of the 11 to 22 million illegal immigrants residing in the country. Breitbart reports that the former Congressmen argued that a blanket measure would make America “demonstrably safer” for Angel Families.
Angel Families refers to people who have had family members killed by illegal aliens. This topic came about during a town hall in Iowa last week. He was specifically asked about Angel Families and how his open border policies would make Iowans safer.
O’Rourke backtracked and claimed he was not in favor of open borders and believed some kinds of protection along the border are needed. However, he dismissed Trump’s Wall as a “12th Century” solution and instead advocated for amnesty.
Over the past few years, illegal immigrants have been responsible for numerous high profile homicides. One of those was the murder of Washington state police officer Ryan Thompson, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant who had been living stateside since 2014.
Several figures in the immigration reform community, like Maria Espinoza of the Remembrance Project, believe that walls can help contain illegal entry. The good news is that Trump administration has now secured $1 billion in wall funding to help combat this wave of illegal immigration.
However, the amnesty angle that Democrats push is seen as a trap according to some immigration reform advocates. BLP reported how Michelle Malkin was one of the few individuals to point out that even legal immigration has several socio-economic pitfalls such as depressed wages and increased government dependency among migrant communities.
The European immigration experience, of both legal and illegal mass migration, is a raw demonstration of how mass migration in all of its variants can create negative social outcomes for countries.
But to O’Rourke and the oligarchical Democrats that’s not an issue.
O’Rourke is now filling out the mass migration check box without issue.
Voters should expect nothing more than the maintenance of the open border status quo from O’Rourke.
Thanks to Spineless, Establishment Republicans, Senate Panel Delays Vote to Subpoena Big Tech CEOs
Republicans Continue to Show Pathetic They are on the Issues that Matter Most
America First nationalist’s hopes of having Big Tech CEOs testify before Congress about allegations of censorship directed towards the Right were temporarily dashed on October 19, 2020.
Politico reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed plans to vote on subpoenas to force the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook to go before the Senate and be questioned about their anti-Right wing censorship policies.
Some Republicans ended up having cold feet and decided to postpone the vote much to the disappointment of right wing activists who have complained about Big Tech’s anti-free speech policies.
President Donald Trump and a number of nationalist Republicans have sharply criticized Facebook and Twitter over their censorship of a controversial New York Post report that exposed Hunter Biden, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, and his corrupt behavior.
Originally, GOP officials in the Judiciary Committee announced plans to hold a markup on October 20 to determine if they would subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to get his perspective on allegations concerning his company’s policies that muzzle conservative viewpoints. Twitter denies claims regarding Twitter’s censorship policies.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, revealed that the planned vote would also call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify.
The panel stated on October 19 that it would determine whether they would issue subpoenas during a executive session on October 22 where it will also allegedly approve Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The committee declared in a statement that it will maintain negotiations with the companies “to allow for voluntary testimony” by the CEO. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the panel will proceed to take a vote on the subpoenas “at a date to be determined.”
The subpoenas would compel the tech big wigs to testify on the reports of “suppression and/or censorship” of New York Post stories and on “any other content moderation policies, practices, or actions that may interfere with or influence elections for federal office,” according to a committee document released on October 19.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is the chair of the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution said to reporters that he’s expecting the committee to preside over testimonies from the Twitter and Facebook chiefs “shortly” regardless of whether they come to the decision on their own volition.
“One way or another, either voluntarily or pursuant to subpoena, they will testify and they will testify before the election,” Cruz stated.
In a separate hearing for the Senate Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will join Google CEO Sundar Pichai on October 28 for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which generally shields Big Tech companies from a liability.
Cruz, who is a member of both Judiciary and Commerce committees, wants each panel to carry out their own hearings with the tech chiefs before election day. “I believe we need a separate hearing in Judiciary because the issues being discussed in the two committees are different,” Cruz remarked.
Big Tech has become too powerful, especially during a time when social media has become the de facto public square. Republicans will need to get serious about making online speech receive the same treatment as general political speech.
