Republican Governor and GOP candidate Scott Walker recently said that our entire immigration system, legal and illegal, needs to be overhauled and that even legal immigration may need to be reduced because the influx of cheap foreign labor is hurting the American middle class.
“In terms of legal immigration, how we need to approach that going forward is saying – the next president and the next Congress need to make decisions about a legal immigration system that’s based on, first and foremost, on protecting American workers and American wages,” Walker said Monday in an interview with Glenn Beck. “It is a fundamentally lost issue by many in elected positions today – what is this doing for American workers looking for jobs, what is this doing to wages, and we need to have that be at the forefront of our discussion going forward.”
MSDNC quickly jumped in to denounce this “hardline” position. John McCain and Orrin Hatch … very old and wealthy men who never need to worry about anyone in their families losing out on a job or an educational opportunity to an illegal immigrant… denounced the “hardline” radical position of favoring Americans over illegal immigrants. Voters who have actual skin in the game tend to see the issue differently.
There are over 42 million immigrants in the USA. Legal and immigration add nearly 2 million more people per year. That’s adding a city larger than Dallas to the American landscape each year; with the attendant demands on resources, infrastructure and services. This is on top of an economy that is stagnant at best. Like everything else the political class supports, this is an unsustainable situation unless turning the USA into a Third World country is the actual goal.
And the politicians remained baffled why no one trusts them with “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” One clue might be that in 2006, Congress passed and President Bush signed a law requiring them to build a fence and secure the border. The law was gutted the very next year and only 37 out of 900 miles of actual fence was actually built. And they profess to be baffled that the public does not trust them to follow the next border security law they pass.
Donald Trump’s reforms would end “birthright citizen,” the notion that a person in the country illegally can still claim welfare and other benefits by dint of giving birth on American soil. There is no reason being born in the USA should automatically entitle one to citizenship, unless such citizenship means nothing. Which is how Obama, Jeb, Hillary, McCain and anyone else who would hand out citizenship at the border like it was a library card treats it. These politicians find it hateful and “rayciss” that some citizens actually want to save what’s left of the American culture and the American standard of living.
California is already well on its way to third world status; with a disappearing middle class, a swath of extreme wealth along the coast, a growing impoverished underclass, and a permanently embedded one-party government. This is the endgame of unrestricted immigration.
