There might be good news for America First patriots.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, arrests of border crossers at the southwestern border have dropped 75 percent since May. ZeroHedge argues that this represents one of the most significant reductions in border crossings in recent memory.
On Monday, December 9, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Monday that 33,510 people were arrested for illegal border crossings in November, which represented the sixth straight month of decline since May. For example, in May, there were 132,000 apprehensions.
In fact, the WSJ points out that the May-November decline is the largest in absolute numbers and second largest in percentage terms of any six-month period in the 21st century.
“This is a direct result due to this president’s strategies to address the historic flood of Central Americans, families, illegally crossing the border,” acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan declared during a press conference on Monday.
“The network of initiatives have worked and continues to work.”
The program in question, “Remain in Mexico,” is one of the largest factors behind the decline of border apprehensions, according to immigration experts. It has prevented some people from entering the U.S. because they figure out that they will likely be left to wait in Mexico for months while their cases are settled.
“I think the big factor has been the Trump administration policies,” stated Randy Capps, director of research of U.S. programs at the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute.
Capps also cited other factors such as crime rates and unemployment in the migrants’ home countries, which haven’t changed significantly in recent months.
The López Obrador government pledged to make the security effort permanent.
This is good news for immigration patriots.
Nevertheless, they should not rest.
Much more reforms will be needed to truly solve the immigration question.
From a potential immigration moratorium to vastly expanding border security, America’s immigration system must be drastically overhauled if it wants to continue functioning as a viable nation state.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
