Trump White House Chief of Staff Claims America “Desperate” For More Immigration

Safe to say that’s not what the President’s supporters voted for.

President Trump’s White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney sharply departed from previous Trump administration policy on immigration when speaking at an event in England on Wednesday, according to new reporting from the Washington Post.

Mulvaney claimed that the United States is “desperate” for higher levels of legal immigration.

We are desperate — desperate — for more people. We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we’ve had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants.

Mulvaney framed his call for additional levels of legal immigration by merely stating the process had to be lawful. It wasn’t a consideration that unauthorized immigration is already illegal for a reason- it drives down wages of American workers, raises costs of housing and utilities, and places burdens on communities unprepared for elevated levels of population growth.

Unfortunately, Mulvaney’s perspective on immigration policy- one that prioritizes a desire for more cheap labor for American corporations- is widely held among the donor class elite of the Republican Party, who ignores concerns on the impact of such policy on American workers. Charles Koch, a notable political enemy of President Trump, bankrolls influence efforts to massively increase annual legal immigration levels, putting himself on the same page as Mulvaney on the topic.

President Trump has given mixed messages on legal immigration policy, running on a strong pro-American worker restrictionist platform as a candidate and flirting with the idea of increased levels as President. Immigration levels broadly have decreased during his presidency, a development likely linked to the increase in wages among America’s blue collar workers.

Early Trump supporters such as Stephen K. Bannon and Stephen Miller have proved instrumental to blocking plans suggested by those such as Jared Kushner to buff immigration levels. Unfortunately, it appears as if the Chamber of Commerce crowd has an ally in a high place within the White House, who seeks to deliver the cheap labor programs they need to avoid paying higher wages to American workers.

Mulvaney’s desire to push the policies of the Chamber of Commerce and Koch Brothers raises serious questions about his high-ranking place within the administration.

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment

Cuomo has refused to resign.

Published

A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.

Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.

Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”

Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.

I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.

Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.

Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
