The International Rescue Committee has plans to start giving gifts to migrants crossing the Southern border according to certain reports.
The IRC receives millions of taxpayer funds through the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement. Now the organization is asking for money to pay for gifts for migrants at the Southern Border.
The committee’s website says “When families flee their homes, they often leave with nothing but the clothes on their backs.”
The IRC also notes that at “the U.S.-Mexico border and in crisis areas around the world, we provide families with emergency support and the basic necessities they need to survive and recover.”
The website adds that “Emergency kits can include food, water, diapers, hygiene items, clothing, and other critical supplies.”
The Trump administration has threatened to close the Southern border which has worried the IRC.
“As the White House continues to pursue its policy to close the U.S. southern border and push asylum-seeking families into Mexico, the IRC is urging the Administration to uphold asylum protections for desperate asylum-seeking families,” the IRC said on its website.
The IRC is urging the Trump administration to take action on the recent migrant wave.
The IRC also is calling on the Administration to support Central American countries in their efforts to reduce the violence that is driving people from their homes.
The committee CEO David Miliband asserts that Trump is “manufacturing a crisis at the US-Mexico border to justify his hardline immigration plans.”
Miliband, who is a British citizen, said in an interview “The US government is failing in its most basic responsibilities, never mind as a global leader but as a local example of how a civilized country should behave.”
The IRC CEO blames the Trump administration for the migrant surge and its failure to provide aid to Central American countries. Breitbart News, however, noted that under Trump’s watch, the U.S. pledged to give out $10 billion in economic aid to Southern Mexico and Central America.
BLP reported on the financial costs of bringing in migrants, which has raised fiscal concerns among policymakers. Not only that, there are legitimate social concerns as well, given the nature of mass migrant waves congregating in enclaves that impede assimilation.
As reported by BLP, immigration continues to be the number #1 issue going into the 2020 election season.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump
Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.
Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.
On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.
“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto. “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not, he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”
Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil. No, no, it’s not true. I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”
“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019. Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.
The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago. According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.
Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.
However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
