THE TRUMP AMNESTY: Partnering with the La Raza Democrats for No Enforcement - Mexico endorses the Trump Plan

“Where aliens and jobs are concerned, even many categories of non-immigrant aliens (temporary visitors) including aliens who lawfully enter under the Visa Waiver Program or with tourist visas may not work in the United States and immediately become subject to removal (deportation) if they seek gainful employment.”  ----MICHAEL CUTLER – FRONTPAGE mag



It's as easy as child's play.
So much of what has come to pass for “common knowledge” is actually an example of how the principle of “The Big Lie” can alter the public’s understanding of critical issues. Immigration has proven to be particularly vulnerable to this tactic.

Under that principle, officials intentionally concoct falsehoods and repeat them at every possible opportunity to convince the masses that the lies are the truth.  This principle was adopted by Nazi Germany in order to con the German populace into accepting the unfathomable depravity of the Third Reich.

Because humans think with words, control of language ultimately results in control of thought.  This was the underlying principle of my recent article, Language Wars, The Road to Tyranny is Paved With Language Censorship.

Today the attention span of most Americans can be measured in minutes, if not seconds, further exacerbating the susceptibility of folks to fall victim to language manipulation tactics. The tactics employed by the open-borders/immigration anarchists to further their cause are so easy to disprove that even a child could see through their warped logic.

First off, consider the game of “Musical Chairs,” which most children are familiar with.  In this game, as music plays,' kids circle a line of chairs that alternate in the way that the chairs are facing.  When the music stops each child scrambles to sit in one of the chairs.  What makes the game challenging is that there is one fewer chair than the number of kids playing.  Consequently, one child is unable to find a chair and is removed from the game along with one chair.  Once again there is one chair fewer than the number of participating children.  The music starts again and the kids circle the remaining chairs until the music stops.  Each time one chair and one child are removed until the contest comes down to two kids and one chair.  Whichever kid manages to sit is declared the winner of the game.

If you wonder what this has to do with immigration, imagine that during the game one of the adults supervising the game opens a door and allows many more children to flood into the room, however, the number of chairs is not increased.  This way the odds of the children already playing the game will succeed in grabbing a seat has just been decreased due to the number of new players introduced into the game.

It should be expected that the children will scream that what has just happened is unfair and of course they would be right.

Now let’s imagine that we are not talking about a childhood game and that the chairs are available jobs and the children are adult workers who are desperate to find a job.  The “doors” that have been flung open are America’s borders and those entering the room (labor pool) are many foreign workers, deleteriously impacting jobs and wages across a wide spectrum of industries and skill levels.

Incredibly, many Americans cannot figure out the parallel between these two situations.  The Democrats who refused to stand for the State of the Union Address when President Trump noted how unemployment levels for American blacks and Latinos were at the lowest point in years were clearly unhappy. Could it be that they have been depending on making Americans more dependent on the “crumbs" that they offer? I use the term “crumbs” because this was the very word used by Nancy Pelosi to describe the thousand-dollar bonuses a number of companies provided to their employees because of the Trump tax cuts.

Next let’s think back to the days of “Hide and Seek” where one child covers his/her eyes and counts to ten and then attempts to find another child who went hiding when the first child closed his eyes.

Today that game is being played by illegal aliens with great success because the number of ICE agents, and the number of INS agents that preceded the creation of ICE, has always been insignificant when compared with the huge number of illegal aliens who have entered the United States without inspection or violating the terms of their lawful admissions.

Sanctuary city policies make it ever more difficult for the overwhelmed ICE agents to track down and apprehend illegal aliens, even when those aliens are engaged in criminal or terror-related activities.

Of course, the mayors of sanctuary cities and governors of sanctuary states hypocritically draw parallels between their actions and the actions of leaders of the Civil Rights movement who put their lives on the line to right the wrongs of slavery, racism, segregation and discrimination.  

Although this parallel is an enormous falsehood, it has been repeated in the news media and by a long list of immigration anarchists and consequently many have fallen for this outrageous analogy. Illegal aliens are certainly protected by due process when they are charged with a crime.  But due process is not the same as Civil Rights. The entire point to Civil Rights laws is to guarantee all Americans, particularly American blacks, equal opportunities to be successful in America and be full participants in American society. Elements of this include access to quality in education, job opportunities and housing.

Illegal aliens are not supposed to work, and knowingly providing shelter for illegal aliens can be construed as harboring and shielding, elements of a felony under federal law, Title 8 U.S. Code § 1324.

Where aliens and jobs are concerned, even many categories of nonimmigrant aliens (temporary visitors) including aliens who lawfully enter under the Visa Waiver Program or with tourist visas may not work in the United States and immediately become subject to removal (deportation) if they seek gainful employment.  

Prior to WWII the Labor Department was in charge of immigration.  The greatest concern, back then, was to shield American workers from foreign competition.  This is how the middle class was nurtured and grew to become the envy of the world and came to be known as the “American Dream.”

Incredibly when President Trump, in his State of the Union Address proclaimed, “American are dreamers too” the members of the Democratic Party reacted with sheer hostility, not only towards the President, but hostility and contempt for Americans.

Awhile back I wrote an article about the veiled attack on the middle class.  In that article I reported on how on April 30, 2009, Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, testified at a hearing advocating the passage of Comprehensive Immigration Reform legislation, conducted by Chuck Schumer, then Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee.

Greenspan was “all in” on legalizing illegal aliens, creating a guest worker program for aliens and for hugely increasing the number of H-1B visas as Bill Gates, whom he quoted, recommended.

As for the impact on American workers and American cities where illegal alien workers were concerned, Greenspan said:

Some evidence suggests that unskilled illegal immigrants (almost all from Latin America) marginally suppress wage levels of native-born Americans without a high school diploma, and impose significant costs on some state and local governments.

That “marginal suppression of wages” for America’s working poor is likely a significant cause of unemployment of Americans and a record levels of homelessness of Americans.

Greenspan’s advocacy for greatly increasing the number of H-1B foreign worker included this justification:

The second bonus would address the increasing concentration of income in this country. Greatly expanding our quotas for the highly skilled would lower wage premiums of skilled over lesser skilled. Skill shortages in America exist because we are shielding our skilled labor force from world competition. Quotas have been substituted for the wage pricing mechanism. In the process, we have created a privileged elite whose incomes are being supported at noncompetitively high levels by immigration quotas on skilled professionals. Eliminating such restrictions would reduce at least some of our income inequality.

Greenspan actually had the unmitigated chutzpah to refer to high-tech American workers as the “privileged elite” who are being shielded from foreign competition.  As an economist Greenspan understand “supply and demand” and seeks to greatly increase the supply of compliant and exploitable foreign workers in the labor pool to drive down everyone’s wages.

The Democrats frequently equate providing a minimum wage of $10.10 per hour or $15.00 per hour with “wage equality.”  This is clearly not about wage equality but about establishing a “standard wage” which would eradicate the middle class.  

The "reforming" of our immigration laws for Greenspan and his globalist cohorts is an effort to actually re-form our immigration system to speed the destruction of the middle class.

Since that hearing Greenspan has persisted in his calls for re-forming the immigration system.

Hypocrisy is usually a clear indicator of a con job.  Schumer has called for creating a federal law with a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison for those who trespass on critical infrastructure or national landmarks.  Yet Schumer demands that aliens who trespass on America be granted United States citizenship.

A child could see through their lies.


“The greatest criminal threat to the daily lives of American citizens are the Mexican drug cartels.”

“Mexican drug cartels are the “other” terrorist threat to America. Militant Islamists have the goal of destroying the United States. Mexican drug cartels are now accomplishing that mission – from within, every day, in virtually every community across this country.” JUDICIALWATCH
“Mexican authorities have arrested the former mayor of a rural community in the border state of Coahuila in connection with the kidnapping, murder and incineration of hundreds of victims through a network of ovens at the hands of the Los Zetas cartel. The arrest comes after Breitbart Texas exposed not only the horrors of the mass extermination, but also the cover-up and complicity of the Mexican government.”

“Heroin is not produced in the United States. Every gram of heroin present in the United States provides unequivocal evidence of a failure of border security because every gram of heroin was smuggled into the United States. Indeed, this is precisely a point that Attorney General Jeff Sessions made during his appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on October 18, 2017 when he again raised the need to secure the U.S./Mexican border to protect American lives.” Michael Cutler …


Not long ago, both Democrats and Republicans advocated safe, secure borders and an immigration policy of admitting immigrants who benefit, not burden, Americans. Que pasó? ….. LARRY ELDER – FRONT PAGE MAG


154,430,000: U.S. Hits Record Employment in January; But Record 95,665,000 Not in Labor Force
By Susan Jones | February 2, 2018 | 8:42 AM EST

( - The new year is off to a strong start on the employment front.
The Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday that a record 154,430,000 people were employed in January, a gain of 309,000 from December.
The number of employed Americans has broken seven records since Donald Trump took office.
The nation’s unemployment rate remained at a 17-year low of 4.1 percent for a fourth straight month in January, but the number of Americans not in the labor force also set a new record at 95,665,000 – the fourth such record since Trump took office.
In January, the nation’s civilian noninstitutionalized population, consisting of all people age 16 or older who were not in the military or an institution, reached 256,780,000. Of those, 161,115,000 participated in the labor force by either holding a job or actively seeking one.

The 161,115,000 who participated in the labor force equaled 62.7 percent of the 256,780,000 civilian noninstitutionalized population.
The labor force participation rate has been stuck at 62.7 percent for four straight months.
Congressional Budget Office Director Keith Hall told Congress last week that the nation's labor supply is growing slowly because of the aging population.
In other positive news, wages are rising: In January, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 9 cents to $26.74, following an 11-cent gain in December. Over the year, average hourly earnings have risen by 75 cents, or 2.9 percent.
And the economy added a strong 200,000 jobs last month. After revisions for the December and November jobs-added totals, job gains have averaged 192,000 over the last 3 months.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for Blacks increased to 7.7 percent in January, up from last month's record low of 6.8 percent; and the rate for Whites edged down to 3.5 percent. The jobless rates for adult men (3.9 percent), adult women (3.6 percent), teenagers (13.9 percent), Asians (3.0 percent), and Hispanics (5.0 percent) showed little change.

Trump expects ‘numbers that get even better’
“Already since the election, we've created 2.4 million jobs,” President Trump told Republicans gathered in West Virginia on Thursday.
“That's unthinkable. And that doesn't include all of the things that are happening. You're going to see numbers that get even better.

“The stock market has added more than $8 trillion in new wealth. Unemployment claims are at a 45-year low, which is something. After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages.
African-American and Hispanic unemployment have both reached the lowest levels ever recorded. That's something very, very special.”
Trump noted that upon hearing that news at the State of the Union speech, “There was zero movement from the Democrats. They sat there stone cold, no smile, no applause. You would've thought that on that one, they would've sort of at least clapped a little bit.
“Which tells you perhaps they'd rather see us not do well than see our country do great, and that's not good. That's not good.”

What's Wrong with This Picture: Three-Quarters of Silicon Valley Workers Are H-1Bs?

By Dan Cadman

CIS Blog, January 24, 2018

Excerpt: It looks more to me like a classic public relations campaign to put the best face possible on the industry's addiction to cheap, pliable foreign workers who are less likely to complain over their working conditions, or about having to live in communities where the cost of living is so high that they are the equivalent of indentured apprentices surrounded by incomprehensible, unachievable, wealth

“Everybody gets in,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “It will be eight to 10 years before there’s any reduction in immigration numbers.” 


WH Plan: Big Amnesty Now, Nothing for Americans Until 2027

President Donald Trump’s new “framework” amnesty 

plan would provide citizenship to at least 1.8 million 

illegals — but would not allow any beneficial reduction in 

cheap-labor immigration until 2027.

The pro-business plan, leaked to Washington insiders this afternoon, asks progressive Democrats and business-first Republicans to accept a trade-off: Amnesty for at least 1.8 million illegals in exchange for a border wall, end chain-migration and ending the visa lottery.
But the loopholes are huge — and those loopholes will flood the labor market for another decade, so helping Wall Street by cooling the current worker shortage which is now raising Americans’ wages.
For example, the lottery program would be ended, but the 50,000 lottery visas per year would be given to other migrants, so doing nothing to reduce the wage-lowering inflow of cheap labor.
More importantly, chain-migration would formally end immediately, but everyone on the huge waiting list would be allowed into the United States. That pipeline of pending chain-migration immigrants includes roughly 4 million people — many of whom will depend on taxpayer funds because they are either unskilled or too old to work. That population is enough to keep the chain-migration pipeline open for another ten years, which means the public only gains a benefit if the alliance of business groups and progressives somehow fails to expand other areas of the immigration system during the next ten years.
“Everybody gets in,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “It will be eight to 10 years before there’s any reduction in immigration numbers.” 
A one-year grace period for chain-migration people is understandable, he said. “But for everybody on the waiting list to be able to come? That is absurd.”
The continued inflow means that pro-amnesty forces have a decade to reverse the workplace benefits and taxpayer benefits that Americans could gain from ending chain migration, he said. Krikorian added:
There’s no way to know the future but it is certainly plausible that the promised immigration cuts will never actually happen … if some Democratic Congress and Democratic President take over seven, eight years from now, they can easily change all of that and the result would be no reduction in immigration … Who knows what the heck President Kamala Harris will do at that point?
The plan fails because it front-loads the amnesty, but delays the gains and safeguards, he said. “That is exactly the same thing that the Gang of Eight bill did, and the [2006, 2007] McCain/Kennedy bill did.”
Under the framework plan, the population to be amnestied is set at 1.8 million by expanding the number of people beyond the 700,000 people now enrolled in the DACA program.
That expansion also means the federal government would have to correctly identify each claimant, verify their weak or disputed claims of eligibility — and also successfully defeat a myriad number of lawsuits suits by fraudsters trying to win the huge prize of American citizenship. In the 1980s, a similar plan to provide green cards to an estimated population of 400,000 farmworkers eventually provided green cards to 1 million people who claim to be farm-workers, including an Egyptian cabby in New York who used his green card to train overseas for the first bombing attack against the Twin Towers in 1993.
“If they go beyond the population enrolled in DACA, they’ve got to start from scratch in verifying those people, so it will be a burden on USCIS, and it is going to make it easier for people to defraud the system,” said Krikorian. 
If fully completed, the $25 billion border wall might halve legal immigration, so keeping roughly 150,000 foreign workers from sneaking into the labor market. But that inflow is far below the continued legal inflow of 1.1 million legal immigrants, not counting the population of roughly 3 million short-term visa workers. 
Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.
But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting roughly 1.1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.
The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign laborspikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate priceswidens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.
The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment and job creation in many interior states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a new report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs and businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.
Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a large percentage of the nation’s annual income has shifted to investors and away from employees.

NumbersUSA’s Rosemary Jenks: E-Verify Ignored in DACA Negotiations Because ‘Members of Congress Know It Will Work’

Members of Congress broadly oppose a legislative nationwide E-Verify mandate for employers because “they know it will work,” said NumbersUSA’s Rosemary Jenks, explaining why E-Verify is not being pushed in congressional negotiations for an amnesty deal for recipients of the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Jenks further noted that both parties are beholden to special interests supportive of “mass migration.”

Jenks offered her analysis during a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with Breitbart News’s Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.
Mansour asked Jenks why most Republicans were not supporting a legislative nationwide mandate for E-Verify use by employers. “Why do you think that this isn’t being pushed, then? It seems like a no-brainer. Why is this not being included in all the negotiations?” she said.
“I think [E-Verify] is not being pushed precisely because members of Congress know it will work,” said Jenks. “I think that is exactly the reason it’s not being pushed. Democrats, for sure, don’t want mandatory E-Verify because they know it will discourage illegal immigration, which will discourage the push for the next amnesty. And, let’s face it, the establishment Republicans don’t want it because they know it will be effective and eliminate their cheap labor pools.”
Special interests, including “big business,” “organized religion,” and “ethnic advocacy groups,” subvert popular American will via their funding and political agitation, said Jenks, adding, “It’s about the donors and about the Democrat Party wanting mass immigration. Those are the two factors that rule every immigration debate. It’s always the big business donors, organized religion, the ethnic advocacy groups. All of the money is behind mass immigration, and then, there’s the American people on the other side. That’s the problem we have had. That’s why we haven’t controlled immigration in the last five decades.”
Legislating a national mandate for E-Verify use by employers is more important than construction of a southern border wall, argued Jenks. “In our view, mandatory E-Verify is more important than a wall. So that is the one place where we’re hoping that we can move the administration to saying E-Verify is a must-have.”
Approximately half of “the illegal population” is composed of foreigners who lawfully entered the homeland and overstay their visas, said Jenks. An E-Verify mandate on employers, she added, would “mostly shut down” the lure of employment for illegal aliens.
E-Verify usage by employers would facilitate more effective enforcement of immigration law by allowing federal authorities to target businesses abstaining for its use, said Jenks. “They have a clearer target for enforcement measures.”
Jenks listed the following elements as “must-haves” for any legislative amnesty proposal: 1) limiting the amnesty to the DACA population; 2) ending chain migration; 3) ending the “Diversity Visa Program” lottery; 4) implementation of effective border security and interior enforcement measures; and 5) implementation of a national mandate for employer use of E-Verify.
Breitbart News Tonight airs Monday through Friday on SiriusXM’s Patriot channel 125 from 9:00 p.m. to midnight Eastern (6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Pacific).


Mitch McConnell Is Throwing The Democrats All The Rope They Want On DACA

I’ve been seeing some pleasantly shocked responses (or at least expressions of puzzlement) from mainstream journalists over Mitch McConnell’s plans for bringing a DACA bill to the floor for debate. Unlike his normal, carefully calculated approach, the Senate Majority Leader is offering up a free-for-all where everyone, Democrats included, will be able to bring up their own amendments for debate and a vote. The way things stand now, as Politico reported this morning, nobody really knows what’s going to be in the bill. And as far as Chuck Schumer’s caucus is concerned, that’s a good thing.
Mitch McConnell is taking the reins of an immigration debate that may prompt a fix for “Dreamers” — or quickly spiral out of control.
Usually careful with his every move, the Senate majority leader is taking a gamble this week with his pledge for a free-for-all debate over the fate of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants.
No one knows the GOP leader’s endgame, nor how he personally prefers the stalemate over Dreamers be resolved. It’s highly unusual for a Senate majority leader, particularly one as calculating as McConnell, to bring a divisive issue to the floor with no clearly intended result in sight.
Isn’t this awfully, er… messy compared to what we’ve seen in the past? Normally, the party holding the majority approaches these types of debates warily, limiting the options of the minority and trying to get something done with the least media damage possible. But these negotiations may be a horse of a different color precisely because this open floor food fight works for McConnell on two levels.
Mitch McConnell is throwing the Democrats all the rope they want on DACA
First of all, he made a promise to Chuck Schumer about this. If the Democrats allowed the recent spending bills to go through and didn’t shut down the government again, the GOP would give them an open debate and a vote on DACA, coming up with something to do about the Dreamers. (And, at least according to the President, millions more who were never in the program. (#sigh)) If McConnell went back on that promise, Schumer would be beating him up over it straight through the midterms. This way Mitch comes off as being “an honest broker” in these talks, as John Thune said last night.
Second, and perhaps more importantly, the Senate Majority Leader believes (probably correctly) that he has a winning hand to play. Schumer will be coming in trying to oppose anything and everything that Trump wants, fighting him at every turn, while pushing for the biggest DACA package he can get. But we’ve got enough polling on the subject over the past year or so to know that many of the points the Democrats will be trying to make (and forcing their members to vote on) are not really very popular with the public. Most people want lower legal immigration quotas, or at least not to have an increase in them. They do want something done for the Dreamers, but the public has already signaled quite clearly that they weren’t willing to support a government shutdown over it. And prioritizing illegal aliens over the safety and security of American citizens is never going to be a popular selling point.
The only thing the Democrats have managed to sell the public on is that they don’t want to spend all that money on the wall. Not that people actually oppose a stronger border… it’s just the money. (Because the party out of power always pretends to care about spending, even when it’s the Republicans.)
I’m willing to bet that this is just what Mitch McConnell is thinking. By allowing all these amendments and votes, he demonstrates that he was good to his word on the budget deal. Simultaneously, he allows the far left wing of the Democrats to put up a bunch of proposals that have slim support among the voters and take votes on them that they will then have to defend in the midterms. And in the end, the majority can still shut down any amendments that are completely out of whack.
It looks to me like McConnell is throwing Chuck Schumer as much rope as he’s willing to take and inviting the Democrats to go hang themselves with it. From that point of view, it really doesn’t look very risky at all.
