University of Maine College Republicans released an emergency resolution on March 25, 2020 calling for immigration restriction in light of the current Wuhan Virus pandemic.
They released this resolution with other College Republican chapters across the nation voicing their support for tougher migration restriction measures.
This America First segment of College Republicans called on President Donald Trump “to pass an indefinite moratorium on all immigration to the United States of America.”
They highlighted the gravity of the situation noting “The need for secure borders–air, land, and sea–could never be greater to prevent the disease from being reintroduced to our country.”
The College Republicans added that “Most overseas flights have been halted and tourist destinations shut down, but a porous land border combined with continued importation of refugees, guest workers, and foreign students render these policies ineffective.”
To address this problem effectively, the Maine College Republicans called on President Trump to “implement a moratorium on all immigration and re-dedicate its efforts to complete the border wall, preempting the spread of the virus.”
As a coalition of College Republicans, they are also demanding that President Trump use emergency powers to implement the following policies:
- Stop all resettlement of unaccompanied minors claiming asylum status on the southern border;
- Suspend the refugee resettlement program;
- Suspend issuance of any and all new foreign student visas under the F-1 student visa program;
- End the Optional Practical Training program allowing hundreds of thousands of F-1 foreign student visa holders to extend their stays and gain employment in the U.S. displacing U.S. workers.
- Suspend the H-1B visa lottery for foreign tech workers from China and India who are displacing American tech workers and undercutting American STEM undergrads and grad students whose livelihoods have been upended by the Wuhan Virus pandemic;
- Suspend the EB-5 citizenship-for-sale program that primarily benefits wealthy Chinese investors;
- Block any “DACA deal” granting amnesty and work permits to 800,000 illegal alien “DREAMers;”
- Tax all alien workers’ remittances (cash transfers back to their home countries which totaled more than $573 billion in 2019); and
- Finish the southern border wall and shore up air, land, and sea assets on our northern border as well.
The other co-sponsors of this resolution were Bruin Republicans at UCLA, America First Bruins, Berkeley College Republicans, College Republicans United at Arizona State University, San Diego State University College Republicans, and Hussan University College Republicans.
Jeremiah Childs, the Vice Chairmen of the Maine Federation of College Republicans declared that the Wuhan Virus saga “has been a great wake up call for College Republicans” and serves as a reminder to why immigration is the #1 issue heading into the 2020 elections.
Childs said it “makes no sense to bring foreign workers who will likely bring the Wuhan Virus.”
For him, it only makes sense to implement stiff restrictions on migration during this pandemic and climate of economic uncertainty.
Maine has been one of the laboratories for some of the mass migration and refugee resettlement experiments the Historic American Nation is being subjected to by its globalist elites, so it’s only fitting that right-wing youth groups are revolting against these schemes.
The youth will undoubtedly play a critical role in making sure that America First principles stay alive during the Trump presidency and beyond.

Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
