Pete Buttigieg Gave Special IDs to Illegal Immigrants in South Bend

Illegal Immigrant ID Card, South Bend
La Casa de Amistad

Mayor Pete Buttigieg created a way for illegal immigrants to get a special identification card in South Bend, Indiana.

Working with a Hispanic community organizing group, La Casa de Amistad, Buttigieg created a special “community resident card” for illegal immigrants and then signed an executive order requiring the town to accept them for local goods and services.
The card is created and issued by La Casa, instead of the town, to make illegals feel more secure about getting one. Anyone can get one provided they prove they have proof of an address in South Bend and other documents such as an ID from any country.
The program was recently highlighted by NBC News as a “big accomplishment” for the city.
The card can be used to access city buildings, public schools, librariesl and the South Bend police department, but does not allow you to drive.
“Something like a municipal ID or city ID, that allows you to be a card-carrying member of the city of South Bend, is an important thing that allows people to be better included and to be more empowered,” Buttigieg said at the time to the South Bend Tribune. “We have got to make sure that the city is supporting everyone who lives here.”
Buttigeig even had a card made for himself to help promote the ID program.
Buttigieg supports the idea of offering amnesty to illegal Americans if elected president.
“Comprehensive immigration reform must include a pathway to citizenship for immigrants living, working, paying taxes, and contributing to our American story, including DREAMers,” Buttigieg wrote on his website under his immigration proposals.

Biden, Trump duel for blue collar votes in Iowa

Biden, Trump duel for blue collar votes in Iowa

Washington (AFP) – Donald Trump and his leading Democratic challenger Joe Biden were to deliver dueling speeches Tuesday across the important 2020 battleground state of Iowa in a foretaste of what promises to be a bad tempered and volatile presidential election.
Biden, 76, called his presence in the midwestern state on the same day as Trump, 72, a coincidence.
But his speech will aim at the core of the Republican president’s narrative, branding Trump “an existential threat to America.”
Far from championing American blue collar workers and farmers, as he repeatedly claims, Trump has made them “pawns” in tariff wars with countries ranging from rival China to close trading ally Mexico, Biden is due to say.
“He thinks he’s being tough. Well, it’s easy to be tough when someone else is feeling the pain,” Biden says of Trump, according to the advance text of the speech he will deliver during an intense tour of the state.
Biden, who spent decades in Congress and served as vice president under Barack Obama, describes Trump as an out-of-touch “rich guy.”
“Trump may think Wall Street and the super rich built this country. I don’t. I think this country was built by you, by the working people of this nation, by America’s great middle class,” Biden says in the text of the speech.
A real estate developer who has always burnished his image as a high-living tycoon, Trump relies heavily on blue collar voters buying into his nationalist slogan of “America First.”
In his trip to Iowa, the president will visit an ethanol plant to tout his backing for the biofuel, supplied by Iowa’s politically important farmers. Later, he will address a Republican party dinner.
Somewhere along the trail, he will almost certainly lay into the man he likes to insult as “creepy” and “sleepy Joe.”
According to Trump, Biden and the nearly two dozen other Democrats vying for their party’s nomination to seek the presidency next year, are the ones out of touch with left-leaning economic and social policies.
And far from regretting his bruising trade war strategy, the president is on something of a high after Mexico said it was agreeing to his demand for more action against migrants flocking to the United States in order to avoid threatened tariffs.
Calling himself “very happy” with the deal, Trump tweeted Tuesday that his far bigger tariffs war with China would be equally successful.
“China is similar, except they devalue currency and subsidize companies to lessen effect of 25% Tariff. So far, little effect to consumer. Companies will relocate to U.S.,” he tweeted.
– Country for old men? –
Trump officially kicks off his reelection campaign next week at a Florida rally.
In reality, he has never stopped campaigning since he entered the White House after a shock win over the widely predicted winner of the 2016 race, Hillary Clinton.
Backed by the incumbency and a booming economy, Trump should be a heavy favorite in 2020. But his presidency has so polarized the country and energized opponents that previous electoral patterns could be upended.
Biden, meanwhile, holds a strong lead in the Democratic nomination contest, but that is partly due to overwhelming name recognition — an advantage that will steadily erode.
He is also struggling to maintain his centrist platform when the most active section of the Democratic Party veers strongly to the left, boosting the likes of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
An issue facing both Trump and Biden is their age. Trump revels in boasting about his energy.
“I am a young, vibrant man,” he said in April, baiting the slightly older Biden.
But Democratic candidates in their 40s and 50s — and even 37-year-old Pete Buttigieg — could yet seize the momentum and make their youth an issue in a country where many Democrats yearn for radical change.

Can California Be Saved, or Is It Too Late?

Mark Levin appeared at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California on Saturday night.  The event was a celebration of his new, bestselling book,Unfreedom of the Press.  It was a glorious evening.  The auditorium was packed with several thousand fans with an overflow crowd in another room.  Levin delivered not a speech but a conversation.  John Heubusch, the director of the Reagan Library introduced Levin then the two of them sat down.  Heubusch asked  questions and Levin answered in his usual inimitable fashion.  The crowd loved it.  But as we were all sitting in that spectacular library in California, the state of our state was the initial topic of discussion.  How did this state, once the envy of all others, become the pathetic, indebted loser state it is today?  The answer is simple, single-party Democratic rule.  Levin worked for the Reagan Justice Department and, like everyone else in the room, reveres the man.  But the state that Reagan once governed (1967-1975) has become  the prime national example of the abject failure of Democratic policies, all of them. Jerry Brown's imaginary high-speed rail that was to initially run from Bakersfield to Merced in Central California is a bust.  The cost was projected to be $77b but has forecast to be $98b!  It most likely will never be completed.  Billions have been wasted.
Our state debt is over $1.5t.  We have the highest gasoline prices in the nation.  Oh, and we are a sanctuary state that protects all manner of illegal immigrants, no matter how serious the crimes they've committed.  Think Jose Garcia Zanate who killed Kate Steinle. He had been deported seven times but was out and about on the streets of San Francisco with the blessings of SF law enforcement; they aim to protect the criminals at the expense of the law-abiding. ICE is the enemy in sanctuary cities and states, the thugs are victims.
State taxes in California are the highest in the nation, as are our sales taxes.  We fall nearly last in education.  We have the most homeless, the most illegal migrants.  The state spends $30.b on illegal immigration per year.  Like all cities run by progressives, our entire state is a disaster of Democratic making.  San FranciscoLos Angeles, and San Diego have been overrun by homeless people, most of them drug addicted and/or mentally ill.  Entire areas of these cities are befouled by used needles, feces, trash, garbage, rats and now diseases long-thought to be extinct in the West.  Persons who work in downtown Los Angeles have contracted typhus!  As true in other cites long run by Democrats (Chicago, Baltimore, Seattle, Detroit, Flint) it is the implementation of  ridiculous utopian Marxist policies so beloved by progressives that has destroyed these once grand cities.  Socialist strategies always fail.  Democrats cheat, (ballot harvesting) are re-elected, and the state continues to decline.  Venezuela is the current example of the massive failure of socialism on the world stage.  What is happening there is beyond tragic; the people are starving in every sense of the word.  But will our own Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez condemn socialism? Absolutely not.  She, Bernie Sanders and their fellow travelers mean to take this country the way of Venezuela, the road California has already been on for too long; possibly too long to ever recover.  This state is slowly becoming a third-world nation. But, as in Venezuela, the rich and politically powerful stay rich, keep their mansions and their private planes unperturbed by the devastation they generate.
Donald Trump may have lost the popular vote in California; too many illegals vote thanks to the motor voter bill that was passed to do exactly what it did, let noncitizens voteBut he won the 2016 election to stop the destruction our self-appointed progressive betters have wrought and mean to  escalate.  They want to control how we all live our lives by pretending we are causing global warming, as if we mere humans are more powerful than the sun!   They seek to destroy capitalism, the one economic system that has  elevated more people out of poverty and tyranny than any other in human history.  They have successfully  indoctrinated two generations of malleable young people with the false notion that America is a racist nation, illegitimately founded by white men so it must be destroyed and rebuilt according to their monstrous, failed progressive policies.  They loathe our founding documents, our anthems, our families, our traditions.  They want to do to the nation what they've already done to California.  They must be stopped. 
As Levin's extraordinary and profound book pounds home, our mainstream media is part and parcel of the progressive plan, in Obama's words,  to "fundamentally transform America."  One has only to watch a few minutes of  CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, or read the NYT and the WaPo to know this is true.  Fake news hardly describes the rubbish they spew and call news.  They lie, they calculate, they agree on a phrase of the day and all repeat it like the puppets they are; they seem to think they are masters of neuro-linguistic programming but they are just  parrots who repeat what they've been directed to say.  Since the moment Trump became a candidate for the presidency, they set out to demolish him.  Once elected, they shifted into high gear, devised a full-on conspiracy to frame him for crimes he never committed.  They are still at it, even though the Mueller Report cleared him.  While the facts of their grand plan are being revealed, they still hope to defeat the man.  But they will not.  The American people are on to them, enough of them anyway.  We see our left for what they are, America-hating control freaks who lay waste to everything they touch. 






Now the outlines of a Watergate-like conspiracy are emerging in which a sitting Democrat president apparently used the apparatus of the state to spy on a Republican presidential candidate. Watergate differed in that President Nixon didn’t get involved in the plot against the Democratic National Committee until later as an accomplice after the fact. Here Obama likely masterminded or oversaw someone like the diabolical Benghazi cover-up artist Ben Rhodes, masterminding the whole thing.


"Cold War historian Paul Kengor goes deeply into Obama's communist background in an article in American Spectator, "Our First Red Diaper Baby President," and in an excellent Mark Levin interview.  Another Kengor article describes the Chicago communists whose younger generation include David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and Barack Hussein Obama.  Add the openly Marxist, pro-communist Ayers, and you have many of the key players who put Obama into power." Karin McQuillan

So when cities across the country declare that they will NOT be sanctuary, guess where ALL the illegals, criminals, gang members fleeing ICE will go???? straight to your welcoming city. So ironically the people fighting for sanctuary city status, may have an unprecedented crime wave to deal with along with the additional expense.

Senate Democrats: Americans ‘Have Obligation’ to Give Amnesty to Foreigners

The Associated Press

A group of Senate Democrats say American citizens “have an obligation” to give amnesty to potentially millions of foreign nationals living in the United States who they say have “earned the right” to be in the country.

After House Democrats and seven House Republicans passed an expansive amnesty to any illegal alien claiming to have arrived in the U.S. as a child, Senate Democrats are now demanding the Senate do the same.
Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Tim Kaine (D-VA) are urging the GOP-controlled Senate to pass their amnesty plan, which gives nearly half a million foreign nationals living in the U.S. on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) a pathway to American citizenship.
Cardin said in a statement that Americans are obligated to give foreign nationals permanent legal residency and eventually U.S. citizenship via an amnesty. According to Cardin:
These individuals have lawfully lived and worked in the U.S. as our neighbors, as they sought refuge in the U.S. We have an obligation to take action and give needed predictability and safety to people who are in an uncertain statusWe need to stand up for the American values of compassion and diversitythat have made this country stronger. [Emphasis added]
Feinstein said the 440,000 foreign nationals who would receive the amnesty have “earned the right” to permanently stay in the U.S.
“The Senate needs to follow the House’s lead and pass these important protections for immigrant families who have been living and working in the United States for decades,” Feinstein said. “After fleeing wars and natural disasters, these families have established deep roots in our communities and earned the right to remain together here in the United States.”
TPS has become a quasi-amnesty for otherwise illegal aliens created under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1990 (INA) that prevents the deportation of foreign nationals from countries that have suffered through famine, war, or natural disasters. Since the Clinton administration, TPS has been transformed into a de facto amnesty program as the Bush, Obama, and now Trump administrations have continuously renewed the program for a variety of countries.
Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.2 million mostly low-skilled legal immigrants who compete in the labor market for jobs against poor, working, and middle-class Americans. About 70 percent of legal immigrants enter through the process known as “chain migration,” where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country with them. Chain migration, alone, has brought about 10 millionforeign nationals to the U.S. since 2005.

Homelessness surges in southern California

A report released this week by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) chronicles a drastic rise in homelessness in the Los Angeles area over the last year. In 2019, the homeless population of the city increased by 16 percent to 36,000, while the homeless population of the county increased by 12 percent to 59,000. The figures in the report contradict the official narrative that the economy has recovered and that the working class is, despite this or that issue, faring well.
In Los Angeles the growth of homelessness is driven by an exorbitantly high cost of living, dominated by rent. The majority of the homeless people surveyed in this study pointed to economic hardship as the main cause of their vagrancy. Because of the high cost of living, a worker earning the minimum wage of $13.75 per hour would need to work 79 hours per week for a median one-bedroom apartment in the city to be considered “affordable”—defined as costing no more than one third of an individual or family’s income.
Many of those on the streets today have only recently lost their homes, with a quarter of the homeless people in the city reporting becoming homeless for the first time in 2018. Young people have been disproportionately affected by the housing crisis, with homelessness increasing among the youth by 24 percent. A net 1 million people have left the state in the last decade for cheaper destinations like Texas, Arizona or Nevada, with the majority of them being working class youth. In 2017, the Los Angeles Unified School District estimated that over 17,000 of its students were homeless.
However, it is not only the scale of the housing crisis that has expanded. It has done so in spite of much vaunted programs promoted as the solution to the crisis. With programs enacted in the last few years such as measure H and proposition HHH, a sales tax and a loan program meant to fund homeless assistance, the LAHSA expanded its activity and provided record levels of support this year.
They were able to provide permanent housing to 21,600 people in 2018, more than double the number for 2014 and up by 4,000 since last year. In a number of other categories including prevention and interim housing, their work has also markedly expanded. In 2018 homelessness in the county decreased by 4 percent.
However, the expansion of the housing crisis has far outpaced relief efforts. The LAHSA says that 1,400 units are scheduled to open this year and that 10,000 will open in the coming years, in accordance with the initial targets of these funding programs. This is barely enough to support a sixth of the county’s homeless population.
But despite this modest goal, homelessness has still grown significantly this year. While unemployment is officially low, many workers find themselves in multiple, low-paid, and casual jobs, one reversal away from finding themselves on the streets.
Perhaps more telling than the conditions in Los Angeles are those in the neighboring counties, where the rise in homelessness has been even more drastic. In these less urban areas, statistics are not methodically collected in the same detail, but figures are still available: In neighboring Ventura County the number of homeless people increased this year by 28 percent, in Orange 43 percent, and in Kern 50 percent.
The LAHSA report is also a devastating indictment of the politics of the Democratic Party. Despite being the wealthiest state in the US, and in addition to that being home to more billionaires than any other state, California has the highest poverty rate when the cost of living is accounted for. There is no question that there is an enormous amount of wealth locked up in the bank accounts of the super-rich, but the Democratic Party rejects any moves to use this wealth for the benefit of the working class.

Instead, as prices are driven up, workers are unable to afford to continue living in their old neighborhoods, and many leave the state. Any relief that exists is funded primarily through regressive taxes and loans whose repayments will come from the city’s coffers, and ultimately from the working class. Any serious attempt to deal with the housing crisis will by necessity have to confront the ruling class and threaten its immense wealth.

US job growth down 

sharply, wages stagnate

The US jobs report for May, released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), showed an increase in non-farm payrolls of only 75,000, far below the 223,000 jobs added in April. While the official unemployment rate remained at 3.6 percent, the lowest figure in half a century, this has not translated into significantly higher wages.
Wages continue to stagnate, with workers seeing an average hourly pay raise of only six cents, or 0.2 percent, in May, the same as in April. Over the last 12 months, average hourly wages have grown by only 3.1 percent. With an annual inflation rate of two percent, the increase in real wages for US workers over the past year is a mere 1.1 percent.
The virtual freeze in real wages has been constant feature of the so-called economic recovery since the Great Recession. In fact, real wages for American workers peaked 46 years ago, in 1973.
The reported net gain of 75,000 jobs in May was offset by a reduction of 75,000 in the BLS’ job estimates for April and March. Factory employment is up just 30,000 this year, compared to a gain of 110,000 in the first five months of last year. Overall job increases are likewise sharply down in 2019. In the first five month of this year, the US economy added an average of 164,000 jobs, down from an average gain of 223,000 for all of 2018.
“Following an overly strong April, May marked the smallest gain since the expansion began,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute, which surveys the payroll data of nearly half a million employers.
ADP said goods-producing employers cut 43,000 jobs in April, including 4,000 in mining and natural resources, 36,000 in construction and 3,000 in manufacturing. The retail sector lost jobs for the fourth month in a row and employment in that sector has dropped by 50,000 since January. Gains in employment were limited to professional and business services and health care.
In a separate report released last week, the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that non-farm business sector labor productivity increased 3.4 percent in the first quarter of 2019, while unit labor costs decreased by 1.6 percent due to negligible increases in wages. Labor productivity rose less in the manufacturing due to a fall in overall output and fewer hours worked, both signs that the US economy is slowing.
Despite the claims of “full employment,” the number of workers officially listed as unemployed remained unchanged at 5.9 million in May. Just short of a quarter of these workers—1.3 million—are listed as long-term unemployed because they have been jobless for 27 weeks or more.
Not included in the official unemployed numbers are the 4.4 million workers who were forced to work part-time in May because their hours were reduced or they were unable to find full-time work. Another 1.4 million workers, also not counted as jobless, were those defined by the government as marginally attached to the work force because they had not searched for work in the four weeks preceding the survey, although they wanted and were available for work and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months.
Anemic job growth in the US and a decline in retail sales and factory orders in April all point to a slowing of the US economy. This, along with slowing growth in Europe and China, have led to mounting predictions of a looming global recession. These trends have been exacerbated by the trade war the Trump administration has launched against China, the world’s second largest economy, along with protectionist threats against Mexico, Germany, Japan, Australia and other countries.
The US Federal Reserve has made clear its willingness to reduce interest rates to keep the speculative bubble on Wall Street inflated. Last Tuesday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell signaled that the central bank was prepared to cut rates if trade conflicts adversely affected the stock market. This triggered a jump of 512 points on the Dow Jones Industrial Average that day and further gains on Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, the markets responded to the unexpectedly poor jobs report with another surge, confident that the Fed would use the slowdown in job growth to justify a rate cut, possibly as soon as its next meeting later this month.

Nancy Pelosi Opposes Mexico’s Promise to Keep Migrants

The top Democrat in the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, is opposing Mexico’s comprehensive immigration reform deal with U.S. President Donald Trump.

The deal expands the “Remain in Mexico” policy which returns illegal migrants back to Mexico until they can be bussed to their asylum-court hearings in the United States. The policy is now keeping just 8,000 migrants in Mexico, out of roughly 330,000 who crossed the border in the last three months.
“We are deeply disappointed by the Administration’s expansion of its failed Remain-in-Mexico policy, which violates the rights of asylum seekers under U.S. law and fails to address the root causes of Central American migration,” said the statement from House Speaker Pelosi.
But it is not clear how Pelosi can block Mexico’s agreement with the “Remain in Mexico” policy. It has already survived one review by judges, and Mexico’s offer of jobs and healthcare to the migrants will make it difficult for pro-migration lawyers to argue that Trump’s deal violates the legal asylum rights of illegal immigrants.
The expanded Remain in Mexico plan is a political blow to Democrats, who welcomed the Central American migration because it pressured Trump to get a fix with a deal that also offered some form of amnesty for the millions of illegals in the United States.
Trump has used his power over tariffs to cut the deal with the Mexican government, so denying political leverage to Democrats and the cheap-labor lobbies in Capitol Hill’s many disputes over migration and wages.
Pelosi’s statement showed frustration over the Democrats’ loss of political leverage:
President Trump must stop sabotaging good-faith, constructive, and bipartisan efforts in Congress to address this complex problem in a humane manner that honors and respects our most cherished national values.
Pelosi also complained about Trump’s successful use of tariffs to cut Democrats out of the deal with Mexico, saying ,”President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor to the south … Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy.”
The Democrats’ leader in the Senate, Sen. Chuck Schumer, sneered at Trump’s success:

Pelosi wrapped her partisan complaint in high-minded claims about Trump’s supposed refusal to resolve a “humanitarian” emergency. The deal “fails to address the root causes of Central American migration … [so] Congress will continue to hold the Trump Administration accountable for its failures to address the humanitarian situation at our southern border.”
In fact, the humanitarian emergency in Central America is subsidiary to the rational recognition by the migrants that the D.C. establishment is inviting them to enter the United States via the various catch-and-release policies.
Trump’s deal with the Mexican government likely will allow border officials to end the catch-and-release of Central American migrants.
Ending catch-and-release is a huge win for Americans and Trump because it means border officials now have a legal alternative to the catch-and-release rules that normally allow migrants to legally enter the United States if they bring children and claim asylum.
Those catch-and-release rules are set by Congress and the courts, and they allow the migrants to get work permits before their asylum court hearings, which are now backlogged for two or more years. Instead of catch-and-release, border agencies can now return migrants to Mexico until their asylum claims can be heard by a judge.
The end of catch-and-release will likely wreck the cartels’ labor trafficking business, which depends on migrants getting U.S. jobs to repay their smuggling debts. Few poor people in Honduras, El Salvador, or Guatemala will go into debt with the cartels, or mortgage their farms and homes to the cartels, once they know they will be forced to remain in Mexico prior to their asylum hearings.
In 2017 and again in 2018, the cartel’s labor trafficking business provided U.S. businesses with roughly 400,000 extra low-wage workers.
That is a ten percent inflation of the nation’s annual new labor supply, on top of the four million young Americans who enter the workforce each year.
If Trump blocks the flow of illegal migrant workers, then companies will face greater pressure to compete for American workers by offering higher wages, more training, and better conditions.
Trump’s compromise deal allows Mexico to dodge the escalating tariffs that he promised, and it also means that Mexico does not have to formally declare itself a “safe third country.”
Trump and his deputies wanted Mexico to declare itself a safe third country because that would give U.S. border officials the permanent legal authority to reject migrants who cross through Mexico. But the Mexican government strongly feared and opposed the “safe third country” proposal, yet their agreement to host the migrants before their U.S. court hearings provide similar legal authority to U.S. border agencies.
Immigration Numbers:
Each year, roughly four million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university.
But the federal government then imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants and refreshes a resident population of roughly 1.5 million white-collar visa workers — including approximately one million H-1B workers — and approximately 500,000 blue-collar visa workers.
The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, tolerates about eight million illegal workers, and does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year.
This policy of inflating the labor supply boosts economic growth for investors because it ensures that employers do not have to compete for American workers by offering higher wages and better working conditions.
This policy of flooding the market with cheap,

foreign, white-collar graduates and blue-

collar labor also shifts enormous wealth 

from young employees towards older 

investors, even as it also widens wealth 

gaps, reduces high-tech  

investment, increases state and local tax 

burdens, and hurts children’s schools 

and college educations. It 

also pushes Americans away from high-tech 

careers and sidelines millions 

of marginalized Americans, including many 

who are now struggling with fentanyl 

addictions. The labor policy also moves 

business investment and wealth from the 

heartland to the coastal citiesexplodes rents 

and housing costsshrivels real estate values 

in the Midwest, and rewards investors for 

creating low-tech, labor-intensive workplaces.

Congressional Democrats are apparently fine with catch-and-release policies because they see the likely electoral benefits. According to Customs and Border Protection (CPB), of the 94,285 Central American family units apprehended last year, 99 percent of them remain in the country today. CPB also reports that 98 percent of the 31,754 unaccompanied minors from the Northern Triangle of Central America remain in the country. CAL THOMAS

Last year in fact, that game was going full speed. El Salvador's remittances hit arecord $5.47 billion. Literally one out of six Salvadorans now lives in the U.S., and 680,000 of those make their home in benefit-rich California. Salvadoran politicians actually campaign for office in California, owing to the sizable number of Salvadoran voters, many of whom are here illegally., signaling that there's a lot of work to be had for the newest (and least likely to be legal) migrants in the states now, most of which is coming from California.
Here come Big Daddy, the California governor, the gringo who's already laid 
out a banquet of goodies for Salvadorans in California, from free health care to free education, to sanctuary state protections to enable illegals to work, coming there supposedly to find out how he can offer ... even more goodies to Salvador's uneducated lower middle classes. The idea of course is to get even more of them to come over. Big Daddy comes down with the Santa sack full of goodies. MONICA SHOWALTER
