Before Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) started running for President, he had an “America First” labor policy regarding mass immigration. He opposed mass immigration because of the ruinous effects it has on the wages of U.S. workers.
Sanders led the charge in 2007 against former President George W. Bush’s push for amnesty for illegal aliens, much to the ire of the establishment wings of the Republican and Democrat parties. Back then, the avowed socialist actually cared for the American worker.
However, Sanders has changed with the times as his ambitions for power have grown. As the Democrats have adopted anti-American policies such as open borders, Sanders is no longer willing to stand for the American worker. He has effectively slurped up the mass immigration kool-aid.
“A moratorium on deportations for the 99 percent of the people is nothing to be cynical about. I think that is a significant step forward, and the undocumented community would be very proud of that,” Sanders said on the campaign trail while running for president.
“On day one, through an executive order, we will repeal all of Trump’s racist immigration executive orders. We will end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across America,” Sanders also said while trying to gain the Democrat presidential nomination.
“When I talk about healthcare being a human right — last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings as well. We need the best educated population in the world: that means we’re going to make our public colleges and universities tuition-free and open that to the undocumented as well,” Sanders said about his idea to give all kinds of taxpayer-funded goodies to illegals.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson took Sanders to task for his hypocrisy during a segment on his titular prime-time program last week.
“For decades Sanders had what would now be considered conservative views on immigration: he cared about higher wages for workers — that was his issue,” he said.
“Mass immigration lowers wages, so Sanders was against it. It’s that simple. Then Sanders ran for president and his views changed completely. Now Sanders is as radical on immigration as anyone else in the race,” he added.
Carlson made the argument that Sanders is even worse than Fidel Castro, and would do more damage to the country as president than the deceased former Cuban dictator could have ever dreamed of doing while he was alive.
“People are jumping up and down on both sides on television because Sanders praised Fidel Castro, because Sanders is a self-described Democratic Socialist — that’s bad, there’s no doubt. But is it worse than what he believes on policy? It’s not even close,” Carlson said.
“You know what’s way worse than anything he’s ever said about Fidel Castro? His belief, his argument that anyone on the planet who sneaks into the United States should get free healthcare and free college tuition. That’s the case he’s making,” he added. “So here’s the obvious question — what would that do to our medical system and our universities? How long before they collapse? Not long.”
Carlson is going to devote substantial time on his program to expose every tenet of Sanders’ radical agenda, as the radical, open borders socialist has taken the reigns as the presumptive front-runner for the Democrat Party nomination this year.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle
This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.
It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.
Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.
Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.
Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.
The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
