Establishment Republican Senator Marco and 23 Democratic Senators want to open the immigration floodgates to Venezuelans.
These bipartisan forces are scheming to grant asylum to Venezuelans, even though these migration incentives may actually impede Venezuelans’ ability to overthrow their socialist regime.
In a March 7 letter, the Senators expressed their intentions to extend asylum to Venezuelans:
“We respectfully request that your Administration promptly designate Venezuela for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to ensure that Venezuelan nationals currently present in the United States are not forced to return … [because a return] is not in the best long-term interest of the United States or our partners in the region.”
Despite the good intentions, offering asylum to Venezuelans does come with several pitfalls. David North, a researcher at the Center for Immigration Studies, pointed out that offering asylum to Venezuelans could derail their efforts topple the Maduro regime. North drew the example of Communist Cuba exploiting U.S. immigrations laws to deport regime opponents.
North pointed out that “Successful revolutions are rarely pulled off by people who are not there.”
Democratic Senators Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer are pushing this asylum letter. Both Senators are strong advocates for open borders and have worked diligently to hamstring President Trump’s immigration reforms. Some of these reforms that they have tried to derail include the construction of a border wall and a much-needed overhaul of the pro-migration asylum rules which have now become a migration magnet for potentially millions of Central Americans.
This recent TPS letter comes at a time when Democrats are trying to obstruct Trump’s plan to rescind TPS protections for many former illegal immigrants coming from countries like Honduras, Haiti, and El Salvador.
TPS protections have been in effect since 2001 and were granted to illegal immigrants whenever their countries of origin were afflicted by earthquakes and floods. The temporary benefits they enjoyed—legal residency and work—were repeatedly extended during the Obama and Bush administrations.
With how ingrained open borders are in DC, we can expect these protections to be extended and expanded if Venezuelans are added into the mix.
Immigration is more than just economic numbers and figures. It deals with real life humans who bring their cultures with them. Often times, these immigrants’ cultures are diametrically opposed to the recipient country’s culture.
In the Venezuelan case, we’re dealing with a country that has become monolithically socialist over the past fifty years. The current Venezuelan crisis is one of hardcore socialists (Maduro government) vs. the socialist lite opposition. In the short term, there is no easy way out for Venezuela.
Cultural habits die hard. Venezuelans, just like the rest of their Latin American counterparts, will likely bring their cultural and political baggage with them. In turn, their open entrance into the U.S. will only perpetuate the big government status quo.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
