America surrenders its borders to the MEXICAN FASCIST PARTY of LA RAZA, now masquerading as UNIDOSus.

An American immigrant is not someone supported by government funds in a "relocation" center; flown over here at government expense; given a cash allowance, free housing, and medical care; and then eased onto local public assistance: Section 8 rental grants, food stamps, WIC, AFDC, clothes from one government-sponsored charity or another, Medicaid, and public schooling, with free lunch and breakfasts and even help with furniture. That's not an immigrant.  That's a future Democrat voter.  ----- RICHARD F. MINITER – AMERICAN THINKER         COM

Literally, LA RAZA DEM Gov Jerry Brown headed down to the open border with NARCOMEX to meet the dictator of Mexico and proclaimed “California is Mexico’s second home!”

Gov. Jerry Brown, on a trip to Mexico, seeks to position California as a more welcoming place for immigrants... $35 BILLION PER YEAR IN WELFARE NOT WELCOMING ENOUGH?!?

We’ve got an even more ominous enemy within our borders that promotes “Reconquista of Aztlan” or the reconquest of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas into the country of Mexico…. AND IT IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY!



 How the Democrat party surrendered America to Mexico:

“The watchdogs at Judicial Watch discovered documents that reveal how the Obama administration's close coordination with the Mexican government entices Mexicans to hop over the fence and on to the American le.”  Washington Times

Open The Floodgates: California Becomes A Sanctuary State

Open The Floodgates: California Becomes A Sanctuary State

Well, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown is about to make the entire state of California one giant safe space for illegal aliens. Over the weekend, the Democratic-controlled state legislature passed the California Value Act, which would bar state and local law enforcement from working with federal authorities on enforcing immigration laws. There was a minor tweak concerning when the state would work with federal law enforcement. The exception would be if an illegal were convicted of a violent crime. State Republicans and the state’s sheriffs were opposed to this measure. It passed along party lines (via NPR):
In a move apparently meant to counter the Trump administration's tough approach to immigration enforcement, the California legislature approved a so-called "sanctuary state" bill Saturday that would establish new protections for people living in the country illegally.
The California Values Act would forbid state and local law enforcement agencies from providing information to or acting as the deputies for federal immigration authorities. The bill also prohibits police and sheriff officers from inquiring about a person's immigration status.
The bill was introduced just before President Trump's inauguration and met opposition from some in California law enforcement, including many local sheriffs who lobbied California Gov. Jerry Brown to intervene, as KQED's Scott Shafer reported.
The changes allowed state and local law enforcement to communicate with federal immigration authorities if a person has been convicted of certain crimes. Corrections officers would also be permitted to work with federal agencies.
The bill now heads to the governor's desk where he is expected to sign it.
Democrats used supermajorities in the state Capitol to pass the bill they saw as an expression of their support for California's estimated 2.3 million undocumented immigrants.
The fight over sanctuary status concerning immigration law is yet another legal battle facing the Trump administration. Last Friday, a federal judge ruled that the Attorney General Jeff Sessions couldn’t withhold grant money from cities that had adopted this policy. The rationale behind the policy was so that it could afford illegal aliens protections from deportation if they came forward with information about a crime. There’s literally zero anecdotal evidence to prove this, as stated by the National Sheriffs’ Association. 
California is degrading citizenship, degrading our borders, and our laws. Then again, it’s what would you expect from a liberal cesspool. The state is opening the floodgates.



''California is going to be a Hispanic state," said Mario Obeldo, former head of MALDEF. "Anyone who does not like it should leave."

And M.E.Ch.A's goal is even more radical: an independent ''Aztlan,'' the collective name this organization  gives to the seven states of the U.S. Southwest – Arizona,  California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Utah." 

BECOME INFORMED! Should America be a country of borders and laws for LEGALS or merely a place for "cheap labor" to jump our borders, jobs and welfare offices?

The Dregs of Higher Education Damage Our Immigration System
By David North

CIS Backgrounder, September 2017

Excerpt: This Backgrounder reports on these 55 institutions, the very dregs of higher education in this country, the Compromised Colleges. They rarely offer first- or even third-rate educations, but all still have the power to admit foreign students. The report's four parts cover: the admissions process for foreign students; the characteristics of the 55 institutions; the impact they have on various aspects of American life; and conclusions and recommendations.

Congress's DACA Tango Is About to Begin
By Andrew Arthur
CIS Blog, September 14, 2017

Excerpt:The last major immigration legislation occurred in May 2005, with the passage of "The REAL ID Act", Pub. L. 109-13 (2005). It should be noted as an aside that "REAL ID" is not an acronym, and therefore it is not clear to me why it is in capital letters. Despite the fact that I drafted major portions of it as well as most of the conference report as it related to that bill, I did not get to name it.

That act should provide important insight into how the DACA dance will go.

Fascinating Takeaways from California's DACA Lawsuit
By Andrew Arthur
CIS Blog, September 14, 2017

Excerpt: Much of this is political posturing, the weaponization of the legal process for purely partisan purposes. It cannot be gainsaid, however, that DACA was intended from its inception to have a "ratchet effect", so that once it was implemented, it would create its own constituency that would mass to oppose its "revocation", as this suit demonstrates.

Foreign Student 'Visa Mill' Faces Shutdown by State Agency
By David North
CIS Blog, September 13, 2017

Excerpt: The fact that this visa mill is still alive reflects badly on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which has not lifted a finger in the case, leaving all the heavy lifting to an obscure arm of Virginia's state government, the State Council on Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV).

ACCT's president and, until now, part-owner, William Schipper, is said to have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with an unknown party or parties, to sell the college. Such a sale might cause a postponement, perhaps a protracted one, of the scheduled decision of the state agency, on the apparent grounds that the change of ownership should cause the state agency to re-think any decision on its termination.

DACA Fix vs. DREAM Act: Moving the Goalposts
By Mark Krikorian
CIS Blog, September 13, 2017

Excerpt: When the administration announced last week that it was winding down Obama's illegal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (that gives two-year renewable work permits to illegals who claim to have arrived before age 16), it threw the issue over to Congress, where it belongs.

But fixing the specific problem of 690,000 people who applied in good faith for Obama's illegal program, and whose work permits will start expiring after March 5, is very different from passing a DREAM Act amnesty from scratch. (Another roughly 100,000 received a DACA work permit at some point but no longer have one, either because they failed to renew, they were deported for criminal activity, or they finagled a permanent green card.)

Mexico Is Ready to Welcome Dreamers ... or Is It?
By Dan Cadman
CIS Blog, September 13, 2017

Excerpt: So just how serious is Mexico about its willingness to reintegrate the percentage of the "Dreamer" population that is Mexican (about three-quarters of all DACA recipients) back into its society?

Is this just one of those games by politicians, Mexican politicians in this case, to play the "optics and atmospherics" of public opinion in order to appear sympathetic while at the same doing all they can to ensure that they don't, in fact, need to do anything to accommodate "Dreamers"?

Why Expedite Citizenship for Refugees?
By Nayla Rush
CIS Blog, September 12, 2017

Excerpt: Humanitarian assistance is necessary, but granting the most advanced legal status to refugees in an expedited manner is not. It is best to allow for wounds to heal and desires to progress.

The U.S. resettlement program needs to be reformed in essence, not just by arbitrarily lowering the number of admissions. As the program is paused for reassessment, now is as good a time as ever.

How Not to Plead a Case
By Andrew Arthur
CIS Blog, September 12, 2017

Excerpt: At no point does the University of California assert that there were no United States citizens or lawful permanent residents who were available to take the jobs described. Nor is there any suggestion that these jobs would remain unfilled except by the DACA recipients who filled them, or that only DACA applicants had the necessary qualifications those jobs required.

Bill Would Move to Control Gang Violence
By Andrew R. Arthur and Jessica Vaughan
CIS Blog, September 11, 2017

Excerpt: Alien gang members in the United States illegally are especially vulnerable to law enforcement. Immigration authorities have been very effective in addressing this phenomenon in the past, taking tens of thousands of gang members off the streets and out of American communities over the past 10 years. But today, the transnational gangs are not only more violent than we have seen in the past, they are more sophisticated and more organized. For this reason, federal immigration agencies need updated tools in order to be successful in suppressing this phenomenon.

Fortunately, on September 7, 2017, Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) introduced H.R. 3697, the "Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act", with the support of powerful House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte. If passed, this crucial piece of legislation will provide the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with additional weapons to address the growing issue of alien gang violence.

Open-Borders Types Use Forked Tongues on Migration and Hurricanes
By David North
CIS Blog, September 11, 2017

Excerpt: The open-borders people would never agree that their position suggests that rebuilding Houston (a victim of Harvey with a largely white population) is more important than rebuilding Haiti (a victim of Irma with a completely black population), but that's a logical consequence of their posture. Their point about the Haitians is that forcing illegal entrants to return will be hard on the individuals, but that the forced departure of some illegals from Houston would not meet some community needs, two non-parallel notions

The Truth About One-Sided DACA Reporting
By Jason Richwine
CIS Blog, September 10, 2017

Excerpt: Over at the Washington Post's Wonkblog, reporter Tracy Jan has a piece entitled, "White House claims 'dreamers' take jobs away from blacks and Hispanics. Here's the truth." The truth, according to the immigration advocates interviewed for the article, is that DACA has no undesirable effects whatsoever on the U.S. labor market.

Ms. Jan apparently did not reach out to any immigration skeptics for comment. Had she done so, they would have told her several things. First, DACA recipients are not a high-skill group. The 15 percent of DACA recipients over the age of 21 who have a four-year degree is far from the 34 percent among natives in the same age range. Furthermore, as Alan Tonelson points out, the occupations held by DACA recipients seem to be primarily working-class. The idea that they are not competing with less-educated natives, as the advocates in the Wonkblog article claim, is unlikely.

How to Help Storm-Battered Islands Without Another Round of TPS
By David North
CIS Blog, September 10, 2017

Excerpt: These offers would be limited to people living in independent nations; they would not be offered to citizens of colonies like St. Martin, a Caribbean island divided between the Netherlands and France. In those cases, the colonial power is rich and the size of the colonial populations is tiny. At the most, we could buy one-way tickets from the United States to those colonial islands for their migrants in this country, whether here legally or illegally.

Let's not make yet another exception to our migration laws on behalf of people who are here illegally — let's make it easy for the same people to return home and be useful there

The Compassion Behind Ending DACA
By Benjamin Dierker
CIS Blog, September 10, 2017

Excerpt: People think ending DACA was a policy made out of order, that we should stop the flow before dealing with those already here. What those people miss is that DACA is part of the flow. We must address long-term incentives.

Whether the blame lies with President Obama for making the false promise, with President Trump for revoking it, or with Congress for inaction is still up for discussion. But the parents who made the difficult choice to violate the law also bear considerable fault for the legal peril their children are in today. The compassionate decision may not feel great in the moment, but ending the incentive for more illegal and dangerous immigration is the only compassionate option currently on the table.

DHS Allows F-1 Visas for Students Going to Ghost Colleges
By David North
CIS Blog, September 9, 2017

Excerpt: Here's the scenario: A U.S. consular official at an overseas location is facing an alien who wants a student (F-1) visa. The alien has a piece of paper from an American graduate school that says he has been admitted and is eligible for the visa. He also has documentation of his graduation from a local college.

The first problem: The officer has never heard of (as most people have not) the American College of Commerce and Technology (ACCT) in Falls Church, Va., the entity that has issued the Form I-20 needed by an F-1 applicant. ACCT is a for-profit entity with an almost completely alien student body, and last year its only shred of accreditation disappeared when its accreditor was de-recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

And, in the Fine Print ... EB-5 Gets Another Three Months
By David North
CIS Blog, September 9, 2017

Excerpt: Overlooked by the media — but not by Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) — the immigrant investor (EB-5) program won another three-month extension as an element in the agreement between the president and the Democrats over the national funding package.

According to an excellent source on Capital Hill, the main part of EB-5, due to expire on September 30, will be extended through the life of the continuing resolution, which will fund the government at current spending levels.

It will be, in the odd language of the Hill, a "clean extension", meaning that all efforts to reform the corruption-ridden program will be ignored yet again.

Equifax and the National Security Threat of Offshoring
By John Miano
CIS Blog, September 9, 2017

Excerpt: The big offshoring disaster I have warned about may have finally occurred. In July 2017, the credit bureau Equifax discovered that it had compromised the personal information of 143 million customers. Only now is the public finding out about the incompetence at Equifax — incompetence that affects nearly half of all Americans.

By now the first lawsuits seeking class action status have already been filed and there is a good chance that discovery will turn up that Equifax had all kinds of warning signs that something was amiss before the breach.




Sittin' Pretty in Sanctuary City

Timothy Meads

Sittin' Pretty in Sanctuary City
Lefties continue to defy the Federal government as Democrat politicians pass into law asinine policies that place American citizens at risk. 
Democrats cheered Friday when a Federal judge placed an injunction on the Department of Justice, blocking Attorney General Jeff Sessions from withholding federal dollars from Sanctuary Cities such as Chicago. While in California the state legislature moved one step closer to deeming the entire state a “Sanctuary State”, requiring police forces to limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities. 
Earlier this year, AG Sessions threatened to with hold federal dollars from Sanctuary Cities that refused to enforce simple laws such as reporting the immigration status of suspects in custody to immigrations agents. The city of Chicago sued the Justice Department, claiming that the order from Sessions violated an individual’s Fourth Amendment right to not be held in custody without being charged with a crime. Chicago also argued that this provision infringed upon separation of powers principles, in other words the city argued in favor of States’ rights. 
Chicago refuses to report illegal aliens because not doing so “promotes cooperation between local law enforcement and immigrant communities.”
Indeed, many in the legislature of California want this policy for the entire state. On Friday, California’s state Assembly passed a bill deeming the state “Sanctuary State.” This bill drastically decreases required police cooperation with federal immigration authorities. 
Yet, not even a month ago in San Francisco, another California citizen died at the hands of an illegal immigrant who federal authorities were tracking for deportation. 18 year old Erick Garcia-Pineda was detained by authorities in December of 2016, but released on a judge’s order.  As part of the judge’s order, Garcia-Pineda was required in April to wear an ankle tracking bracelet while authorities reviewed his case. He also was required to check in with immigration officials.
But on August 19th, an ICE contractor received an ankle bracelet tampering notification from Garcia-Pineda's device. Authorities could not find the illegal alien, but local sheriffs arrested the man on September 3rd on misdemeanor battery charges that occurred that day. Deputy officials refused to listen to ICE’s request and released him from jail that day.
Several days later, the illegal immigrant was arrested in the connection of an August 15th killing. Authorities say that he killed 23 year old Abel Esquivel during a robbery, with a stolen police weapon.
The unfortunate death of Kate Steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant in San Francisco several years ago sparked Congress into action. This past July, they passed Kate's law which mandates a minimum five-year prison sentence for anyone who reenters the country illegally at least twice after being deported
Still, Federal judges continue to overrule the Constitution while State legislatures place illegal immigrants before American citizens. The Department of Justice has not indicated any motion to appeal the injunction and California representatives seem oblivious to the havoc in their communities caused by illegal aliens.
It remains unclear why Pineda was wearing an ankle monitor by immigration officials, but was not previously arrested for his illegal status.

Report: DACA Amnesty May Trigger Flood of 4-6M Foreign Nationals, Not 800K


Should President Trump follow through on a deal where nearly 800,000 illegal aliens are allowed to remain in the United States and eventually obtain U.S. citizenship, research shows it would create a flood of four to six million chain migrants coming to the United States.

Trump, who adamantly opposed the amnesty for illegal aliens protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, is now defending the recipients of the program, as well as leveraging a deal where the foreign nationals could seek a pathway to citizenship through legal status, as Breitbart News reported.
Today, Trump signaled to his supporters that he opposed any sort of chain migration that would follow a DACA amnesty deal, though the deals the White House and Congress are reviewing would all cause such an immigration crisis:

Latest data from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) shows that 618,342 illegal aliens from Mexico currently have DACA status. If they were amnestied into the U.S., it would give them the opportunity to bring adult parents and relatives to the U.S.
“There will be chain migration. There always has been in amnesties,” Center for Immigration Studies Policy Director Jessica Vaughan told Breitbart News.
According to Princeton University researchers Stacie Carr and Marta Tienda, for every one new Mexican immigrant to the U.S., an additional 6.38 Mexican nationals come to the U.S. through family-chain migration.
Based on the Princeton research, the 618, 342 illegal aliens from Mexico who are coveredby DACA would be able to bring upwards of four million additional relatives and family members to the U.S. in the years to come.
If the remaining estimated 180,000 DACA recipients brought in three family members each after being amnestied, it would result in additional 540,000 immigrants. Should the remaining 180,000 DACA recipients bring four family members each to the U.S., it would result in more than 700,000 new immigrants.
But if the remaining roughly 180,000 DACA recipients were to bring the same number of family members as Mexican DACA recipients are expected to bring to the U.S., it would result in nearly 1.2 million more legal family-based immigrants coming to the country.
On top of the legal chain migration that could occur following a DACA amnesty by Trump, there is also the potential for a massive border surge, like the one that occurred following former President Obama’s creation of the DACA program.
As the Migration Policy Institute has chronicled, previous border surges from amnesty programs have brought hundreds of thousands across the U.S.-Mexico border:
While the flow of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) has been climbing steadily since 2012, a dramatic surge has taken place in the last six months, with the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas as the principal place of entry. The Border Patrol there has converted entire stations to house unaccompanied minors and families.
According to the Border Patrol, apprehensions of unaccompanied children increased from 16,067 in fiscal year (FY) 2011 to 24,481 in FY 2012 and 38,833 in FY 2013. During the first eight months of FY 2014, 47,017 such children were apprehended by the Border Patrol. If the influx continues apace—and it shows no signs of slowing—the administration predicts that by the end of the fiscal year on September 30, totals could reach 90,000.
Ninety-eight percent of unaccompanied minors currently arriving at the border are from Honduras (28 percent), Mexico (25 percent), Guatemala (24 percent), and El Salvador (21 percent). This breakdown represents a significant shift: prior to 2012, more than 75 percent of UACs were from Mexico.
“There’s one thing for sure: it’s not going to be 800,000 illegal aliens amnestied,” Vaughan said, alluding to the fact that an amnesty would surge both legal and illegal immigration.

Immigration Hawks Licking Their Wounds After Trump's About-Face
Jonah Goldberg
Immigration Hawks Licking Their Wounds After Trump's About-Face
"At this point, who DOESN'T want Trump impeached?" -- Ann Coulter tweet, 7:05 a.m., September 14, 2017.
"If reports true 100%. I blame R's. They caused this. They wanted him to fail and now pushed him into arms of political suicide -- IF TRUE." -- Sean Hannity tweet, 12:11 a.m., September 14, 2017.
"Flounder, you can't spend your whole life worrying about your mistakes! You (fouled) up... you trusted us! Hey, make the best of it!" -- Eric "Otter" Stratton, "Animal House," 1978.
Before I continue, let me answer Ann Coulter's question: Me. I don't want Trump impeached, at least not until he does something clearly impeachable. Impeaching him for policies you don't like or even for political malpractice would simply be a time-wasting tantrum. And I say that as a consistent critic of Donald Trump, going back to his flirtation with running on the Reform Party ticket in 2000.
That said, Coulter's reaction is understandable and even a little praiseworthy. After all, she wrote a book -- a whole book! -- in 2016 called "In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!" But unlike a lot of her compatriots in the Trump Army, Coulter was driven by a policy position, not an infatuation. Or perhaps she was infatuated, but her commitment to the policy was greater than her commitment to the man.
The policy in question: immigration. To wit, Coulter thinks we've had enough of it. That goes for the children brought here by illegal immigrants, commonly referred to as "Dreamers." President Obama created a program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, that unconstitutionally (according to most conservatives, including the attorney general) granted a kind of de facto amnesty to the Dreamers, giving them work permits and legal residence.
On Wednesday night, Trump had dinner with the Democratic leaders in the House and Senate, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer. These two famously partisan Democrats came out of the dinner announcing that they had struck a deal with the president to make DACA permanent without providing any funding for Trump's cherished border wall.
Trump, witnessing the blowback, which included the new nickname "Amnesty Don" in a headline at Breitbart News (which until recently had been the Pravda of MAGAland), insisted in a tweet that no deal had yet been made. But then he went on to sing the praises of DACA in a series of tweets, making it clear to all that he wants the Dreamers to be legalized and the DACA program made permanent.
In other words, he threw his biggest supporters under the Trump train.
Now I should say, I think Trump is right on the policy. It would be stupid and cruel to deport a bunch of people who came here as little kids and have since assimilated into the only country they've ever known. A large majority of Americans, including a majority of Trump voters, agree with Trump (and Schumer and Pelosi) on the policy. A poll this week found that only 12 percent of registered voters want these people deported. Coulter and former Trump adviser (and current Breitbart publisher) Steve Bannon speak for that 12 percent.
The majority of immigration hawks, however, considered DACA to be the president's most valuable negotiating chip. He could have gotten funding for the wall -- or perhaps E-Verify, or portions of Sen. Tom Cotton's immigration reform legislation, the RAISE Act -- passed in exchange for making DACA permanent. Instead, the author of "The Art of the Deal" essentially tossed his best chip into the pot as if it were the ante.
This poses a crisis for two different kinds of Trump true believers. The "nationalists" honestly believed he was one of them. Meanwhile, the super-fans honestly believed Trump was the greatest negotiator and strategist the world had ever seen. Both of these notions were delusions. Oh, I'm sure Trump believes much of his America First talk, but that's talk. What really matters to him is praise. It was only a matter of time before the moth flew to glow of public opinion.
The sad thing is that both delusions were obvious from the moment he descended his golden escalator at Trump Tower. It will be interesting to see how the true believers follow Otter's advice and make the best of their foul-up.


"Still, black America remains steadfastly loyal to a party that supports the endless importation of workers who compete directly for jobs with them and their families. Writes Kaus, "The median hourly wage (of DACA recipients) is only $15.34, meaning that many are competing with hard-pressed, lower-skilled Americans."

A 'Read-My-Lips' Moment for Trump?

Patrick J. Buchanan
 By Patrick J. Buchanan | September 15, 2017 | 4:38 AM EDT

John Kelly, left; Homeland Security and Counter Terrorism Adviser Thomas Bossert, right, and Deputy Homeland Security Adviser John J. Daly, seated, in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, D.C. ( Official White House Photo by Shealah Craighead)
"Having cut a deal with Democrats for help with the debt ceiling, will Trump seek a deal with Democrats on amnesty for the 'Dreamers' in return for funding for border security?"
The answer to that question, raised in my column a week ago, is in. Last night, President Donald Trump cut a deal with "Chuck and Nancy" for amnesty for 800,000 recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program who came here illegally as youngsters, in return for Democratic votes for more money for border security.
According to preening Minority Leader Pelosi, the agreement contains not a dime for Trump's Wall, and the "Dreamers" are to be put on a long glide "path to U.S. citizenship."

Trump denies this is amnesty, and says the Wall comes later.

Fallout? Among the most enthusiastic of 

Trump backers, disbelief, disillusionment 

and wonderment at where we go from here.

Trump's debt-ceiling deal cut the legs out from under the GOP budget hawks. But amnesty would pull the rug out from under all the folks at those rallies who cheered Trump's promise to preserve the country they grew up in from this endless Third World invasion.
For make no mistake. If amnesty is granted for the 800,000, that will be but the first wave. "There are reasons no country has a rule that if you sneak in as a minor you're a citizen," writes Mickey Kaus, author of "The End of Equality," in The Washington Post.
"We'd be inviting the world. ... (An amnesty) would have a knock-on effect. Under 'chain migration' rules established in 1965 ... new citizens can bring in their siblings and adult children, who can bring in their siblings and in-laws until whole villages have moved to the United States.
"(T)oday's 690,000 dreamers would quickly become millions of newcomers who may well be low-skilled and who would almost certainly include the parents who brought them — the ones who in theory are at fault."
Trump is risking a breach in the dam. If the populists who provided him with decisive margins in Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania feel betrayed, it's hard to blame them.
Why did Trump do it? Clearly, he relished the cheers he got for the debt ceiling deal and wanted another such victory. And with the rampant accusations of a lack of "compassion" for his cancellation of the temporary Obama administration amnesty, he decided he had had enough heat.
It is not easy to stand up for long to the gale force winds of hostile commentary that blow constantly through this city.
Trump's capitulation, if that is what turns out to be, calls to mind George H. W. Bush's decision in 1990 to raise the Reagan tax rates in a deal engineered for him by a White House-Hill coalition, that made a mockery of his "Read my lips! No new taxes!" pledge of 1988.
For agreeing to feed the beast of Big Government, rather than cut its rations as Reagan sought to do, Bush was called a statesman.
By the fall of '92, the cheering had stopped.
Can Trump not know that those congratulating him for his newfound flexibility will be rejoicing, should Bob Mueller indict his family and his friends, and recommend his impeachment down the road?
What makes pre-emptive amnesty particularly disheartening is that the Trump policy of securing the border and returning illegal immigrants to their home countries appears, from a Census Bureau report this week, to be precisely the prescription America needs.
In 2016, paychecks for U.S. households reached an average of $59,039, up 3.2 percent from 2015, a year when they had surged.
U.S. median household income is now at its highest ever.
Yet there are inequalities. Where the median family income of Asian-Americans is above $81,400, and more than $65,000 for white Americans, the median family income of Hispanic families is $47,675, and that of African-American households far less, $39,490.
Consider. Though black Americans are predominantly native-born, while high percentages of Hispanics and Asians are immigrants, from the Census numbers, Hispanics earn more and Asians enjoy twice the median family income of blacks, which is below where it was in 2000.
Still, black America remains steadfastly loyal to a party that supports the endless importation of workers who compete directly for jobs with them and their families. Writes Kaus, "The median hourly wage (of DACA recipients) is only $15.34, meaning that many are competing with hard-pressed, lower-skilled Americans."
Looking closer at the Census Bureau figures, Trumpian economic nationalism would appear to have its greatest appeal to the American working class, a huge slice of which is native-born, black and Hispanic.
The elements of that policy?
Secure the border. Halt the invasion of low-wage workers, here legally and illegally, from the Third World. Tighten the labor market to force employers to raise wages in our full-employment economy. Provide tax incentives to companies who site factories in the USA. Impose border taxes on the products of companies who move plants abroad.
Put America and American workers first.
Will any amnesty of undocumented workers do that?

OBAMA’S CRONY BANKSTERISM destroyed a TRILLION DOLLARS in home equity… and they’re still plundering us!

Barack Obama created more debt for the middle class than any president in US

history, and also had the only huge QE programs: $4.2 Trillion.

OXFAM reported that during Obama’s 

terms, 95% of the wealth created went 

to the top 1% of the world’s wealthy.

US Census report shows increasing social inequality

By Eric London
15 September 2017

US Census data from 2016 released on Tuesday shows increasing social inequality amid a small gain in household income that is offset by a massive growth of personal debt and rising living costs.
The data tracks the ongoing redistribution of wealth from the working class to the wealthy as a result of the pro-Wall Street policies of both the Republican and Democratic parties. It substantiates the oligarchic character of the United States.

Social inequality

The Gini index, used to measure social inequality, with higher figures indicating a wider economic divide, rose slightly from 2015 (.479) to 2016 (.481). The 2016 figure, according to rankings in the CIA World Factbook, makes the US slightly more equal than Madagascar and less equal than Mexico.
In terms of aggregate income share, the shift from 2015 to 2016 is as follows:
The growth in inequality is even starker when traced from 2007, the year before the Wall Street crisis.
The data reflects income and not wealth, thereby providing an incomplete and conservative indication of the scale of inequality. Even within the highest quintile, the income share increased only for the top 10 percent, and, in particular, the top 5 percent.

Household income

The corporate media has portrayed the report as a sign of positive income growth, since it shows a slight rise in median income of 3.2 percent from 2015 to 2016.
But according to the Census data, the earnings of “full-time, year-round workers” remained stagnant. For men in this category, a total of 63.9 million people, earnings declined by 0.4 percent, from $51,859 in 2015 to $51,640 in 2016. For women in this category, 47.2 million people, there was a minor increase, 0.7 percent, from $41,257 in 2015 to $41,554 in 2016. In other words, families with 2 adults working full-time saw a paltry $78 increase in their yearly earnings from 2015 to 2016.
Claims of rising incomes mask the growth of inequality. The Census data shows that the household income of the 90th percentile (the 100th being the highest) was 12.53 times higher than the household income of the 10th percentile in 2016, up from 12.23 times higher in 2015 and 11.18 times higher in 2007. The degree to which income is concentrated in the richest 10 percent of the population is exemplified by the fact that the 5th percentile boasted a household income 3.82 times higher than the 50th percentile in 2016, up from 3.79 times in 2015 and 3.52 in 2007.
As Bloomberg News reported Wednesday, “Since 2007, average inflation-adjusted income has climbed more than 10 percent for households in the highest fifth of the earnings distribution, and it’s fallen 3.2 percent for the bottom quintile. Incomes of the top 5 percent jumped 12.8 percent over the period.”
For the working class, any income increase was transferred to the corporate elite in the form of rising debt payments and increasing living expenses, especially for health care.
According to figures from eHealth, a large private health exchange, average deductibles for families rose 5 percent from 2016 to 2017 (a year after the period covered by the Census report) and average individual premiums rose 22 percent over the same period.
The rising cost of student debt alone largely erases income increases seen by some young people. According to the Census, those aged 15 to 24 saw an income increase of 13.9 percent, from $36,564 in 2015 to $41,655 in 2016, while incomes for young people aged 25 to 34 rose 4.9 percent, from $58,091 to $60,932, nearly double the percentage increase for older age groups.
However, in 2016, student debt rose to an average of $30,000 per young person, up 4 percent from 2015, eliminating over 80 percent of the income rise for 25-34 year olds. For 15 to 24 year olds, the $4,000 increase in median income would hardly cover one sixth of the average debt payment, let alone make up for the fact that young people face a future in which they are unlikely to receive a pension, Social Security or Medicare.
Rising debt levels are not a phenomenon limited to young people. A Bloomberg report from August 10 notes that credit card defaults increased from the beginning of 2015—when roughly 2.5 percent of debt holders defaulted—to the end of 2016, when the total hit 3 percent. This figure subsequently climbed in 2017 to reach 3.49 percent.
Bloomberg notes: “After deleveraging in the aftermath of the last US recession, Americans have once again taken on record debt loads that risk holding back the world’s largest economy... Household debt outstanding--everything from mortgages to credit cards to car loans--reached $12.7 trillion in the first quarter [2017], surpassing the previous peak in 2008 before the effect of the housing market collapse took its toll, Federal Reserve Bank of New York data show.”
“For most Americans,” the report continues, “whose median household income, adjusted for inflation, is lower than it was at its peak in 1999, borrowing has been the answer to maintaining their standard of living. The increase in debt helps explain why the economy’s main source of fuel is providing less of a boost than in the past. Personal spending growth has averaged 2.4 percent since the recession ended in 2009, less than the 3 percent of the previous expansion and 4.3 percent from 1982-90.”
The Bloomberg report explains that income from wages minus household debt trended downward in 2015, meaning that debt is rising faster than wages, causing a loss of roughly $500 billion across the US economy in the space of just one year.

Poverty rate

Though the Census report shows that the poverty rate declined from 13.5 percent of households in 2015 to 12.7 percent in 2016, this figure is substantially higher than the 11.3 percent level that prevailed in 2000. In reality, individuals and families must make 2.5 to 3 times the official poverty rate of $12,000 for an individual, $15,500 for a married couple and $25,000 for a family of four just to make ends meet.
What the data really shows is that the poorest half of the country--over 150 million people--is in a desperate financial position, with the next poorest 40 percent facing constant financial strain and a declining share of the national income. In regard to poverty, the Census Bureau maintains figures that go up only to 200 percent of the official poverty level. The latest report shows that 95 million people—29.8 percent of the population—fall into this category. The share of those under the age of 18 in this category is much higher--39.1 percent.
This is the context for the drive by the Trump administration and both big business parties to slash corporate taxes, impose a health care “reform” that will increase costs for millions of people, and accelerate the transfer of wealth from the working class to the financial aristocracy.
