Trump Plans ‘Birth Tourism’ Ban, Will His Admin Follow Through?

Published

on

The Trump administration is on the verge of announcing a plan to limit “birth tourism”, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.

This plan aims to reign in the practice of automatically granting American citizenship to people born in the United Sates whose parents are noncitizens visiting the country.

The move targets “birth tourism,” referring to an underground market where pregnant women travel to the U.S. to have a child that will instantly receive citizenship. According to the 14th Amendment, any child born on American soil is a citizen, no matter the parents’ status.

The State Department has spearheaded the initiative. However, Axios reported that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at the Department of Homeland Security administers visa protocols. So far, the administration has not decided how to directly tackle the issue of birth tourism. However, it is looking into giving the State Department the ability to restrict visa provisions to people visiting on short-term business, as well as limiting tourism visas to women the administration believes may be trying to have children in the U.S.

This speculation comes in the wake of President Trump divulging in August and also in October that he wanted to issue an executive order to revoke the right of any child born in America from becoming a citizen if the child’s mother entered the country illegally or is not a citizen. Trump also entertained the idea back in September 2018.

Birth tourism has been one of the key planks of the Trump administration’s immigration agenda.

Birthright citizenship is one of the most controversial issues in American politics. It is also one of the highest stake aspects of mass migration. BLP previously reported that 400,000 anchor babies are born in America annually.

To maintain the relevancy of the Republican Party and keep the historic American nation intact, Trump must at least get something done on birthright citizenship.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

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.
