The Border is in Chaos, But Jared Kushner Has Other Immigration Priorities

Published

on

Jared Kushner continues his plans to derail President Trump’s border security measures.

Even after Trump has secured $1 billion for wall funding and has threatened to shut down the southern border, Kushner is working to sneak in a plan that would bring greater legal immigration to the U.S.

According to POLITICO, Kushner has been working for months on an immigration proposal that would increase the number of workers, both low- and high-skilled, into the country.

Despite Trump’s originally tough rhetoric on illegal immigration, he entertained the idea of bringing in more legal migrants during CPAC, which got him significant criticism from the likes of political commentators such as Lou Dobbs and Michelle Malkin.

These efforts to expand legal immigration reportedly started in January when Kushner gathered various interest groups in the business and agricultural communities to discuss immigration reform. A good portion of them supported the expansion of legal immigration.

Some immigration hawks fear that Trump is falling for Big Business’s influence. RJ Hauman, government relations director at the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), stated “The president must remember that he was elected to implement an immigration system that serves national interests, not business interests.”

In a BLP report last month, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC was one of the few groups to expose Kushner’s latest immigration expansion plot. Now other groups are starting to become aware of this backdoor immigration expansion scheme.

Jessica Vaughan, the Director of Policy Studies Center for Immigration Studies, raised concerns about the Trump administration’s focus on legal immigration rather than tackling the crisis at the border:

They should be 100 percent on fixing the border crisis and not on other parts of the immigration system.

GOP voters will likely be worried about Kushner’s growing policy influence in the Trump administration.

After all, as BLP reported, tackling immigration is the number #1 issue for GOP voters.

Across the pond, the Trump administration being one-upped by European stalwarts like Interior Minister Matteo Salvini. European populists know firsthand what the socio-economic effects of mass migration are like.

Instead of suffering the same no-go zone fate that has befallen countries like Germany and the U.K., Salvini has put the clamps on illegal immigration.

For Trump to keep the America First base on his side, his will likely have to keep Jared Kushner’s policymaking influence to a minimum.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
