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.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
