Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk has been under siege at his “Culture War” events throughout the country for his support of mass immigration as well as other issues.
Kirk is feeling the heat and has adjusted one of his stances under the pressure from “America First” forces. Kirk rebuked his previous stance of giving green cards to any immigrant who obtains a U.S. college diploma during an appearance on the University of Florida campus on Tuesday night.
“Those laws might make you uncomfortable. Those laws you might disagree with, but illegally entering into the United States is not obeying our laws, and it’s been said once, and it’s been said twice, and should be said again, if you break the laws entering into our country, what’s to say you’re not going to break the laws while you’re in our country?” Kirk asked to applause.
“By the way, this is both sides that have contributed to this, and what it does is it erodes the fabric and the tradition of constitutional law in our country, and it’s very… it’s a very big problem, and it’s not just illegal immigration,” Kirk added.
This is when Kirk readied his capitulation in the hopes that it would keep the army of self-described Groypers in the audience at bay.
“I’m going to do something that not everyone in politics is comfortable doing, but I’m going to say I was wrong about something, and this is something I wish more people did,” Kirk explained.
“I said something a couple weeks ago that was not an opinion I still currently hold where I said something about F-1 Visas where I said that F-1 Visas should be given out basically to every single person who goes through the college education system. I was wrong when I said that. I was wrong when I said that,” Kirk said to massive applause.
“Part of being 26 and traveling the country is I hear lots of different opinions. What I was trying to say, and I didn’t say it, is I want the most qualified people to come to into our country, to come into America. I did not say that, instead, I basically said that… anyone who goes through the highly-corrupt college cartel then all of a sudden they should be deemed entry into the United States,” Kirk added.

Kirk caved on the issue after FOX News host Tucker Carlson called his position out during the Monday edition of his program.
“There’s bipartisan consensus in Washington that we desperately need smart people from overseas to do the jobs that Americans are too badly educated to do. No reason to fix our schools, or make sure higher education is serious and non-frivolous, we can just import people from countries that take education seriously, and that’s what we do,” Carlson explained.
“You probably haven’t even heard of the F-1 optional practical training program, but in just four years from 2009-2013, that program replaced nearly half a million American jobs,” he added. “That program allows foreign students who study in American universities to stay in the country after they graduate. In other words, we’re just going to staple a green card to their diploma. You’ve probably heard that phrase recently.”
“How’s that for America Last?” Carlson quipped.

While Kirk hopes that his surrender will get the “America First” forces off of his back, he is sorely mistaken. Conservative pundit Michelle Malkin smells Kirk’s fear, and is demanding for him to take an even stronger position on immigration.

Based on tonight’s pointed questioning at Kirk’s event, it does not appear that the Groypers are going to take it any easier on him because he modified this position. Until Kirk completely disavows Conservative Inc. and his organization adopts a consistent “America First” platform, he can expect the same type of treatment as he visits campuses nationwide.
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.
