Immigration Crisis Should Give GOP Upper Hand But Will They Act?

Immigration Crisis Should Give GOP Upper Hand But Will They Act?

By Joe Guzzardi

With seven weeks remaining before the 2022 mid-term election, Republicans and Democrats have drawn their battle lines, and staked out what each party considers their opponents’ political vulnerabilities.

Last week, the GOP released what it called a “Commitment to America” that included many oft-made, unfulfilled promises to its base. GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) vowed to fund border enforcement, end catch-and-release and mandate E-Verify, the online program that confirms whether a newly hired employee is legally authorized to work in the U.S.

President Biden swiftly rebutted. Speaking to the teachers’ union in Philadelphia, Biden called the “Commitment to America” thin gruel, and chided McCarthy for omitting references to issues that, in his view, voters most care about like a woman’s right to choose, Medicare, Social Security, gun violence and LGBT discrimination.

Enforcing immigration laws may help give Republicans a winning hand – border patrol agents have apprehended an estimated 4.9 million illegal immigrants during the 20 months since Biden’s inauguration. The variable in the November election is whether the GOP can unify behind its promises, traditionally a huge problem for Republicans, and press their advantages into a congressional majority against what will be solidly determined, no defectors allowed, Democrats.

Key to the Commitment to America is E-Verify. At first glance, the program should have universal congressional support – no one from either party can intelligently argue that citizens and lawfully present immigrants shouldn’t be protected against illegal immigrant employment. But the donor-base wants illegal immigrant employees, cheaper and more subservient. And because the corporate elites are so influential with U.S. representatives and senators, E-Verify has hit a congressional brick wall for nearly 30 years. Thus, E-Verify has never had the benefit of a full floor vote.

Sadly, the Biden administration has moved dramatically away from E-Verify’s intention. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ October 12, 2021 memo prohibits Immigration and Customs Enforcement from conducting worksite enforcement raids that might turn up employed illegal aliens. Mayorkas’ memo is an administrative subversion of immigration law, and an open invitation for employers, penalty-free, to hire illegal aliens who will also be protected from enforcement consequences. Under existing but ignored law, employed illegal immigrants could be deported.

Despite insistence from immigration advocates that Americans won’t do most of the jobs that aliens are hired to do, the evidence proves the contrary. In 2017, ICE audited an industrial bakery in Chicago which forced the employer, Cloverhill Bakery, to fire 800 illegal aliens. The terminated employees were quickly replaced by mostly black Americans. Similar ICE cases targeted illegal employment at Mississippi chicken plants, at a trailer manufacturer in Texas and a meatpacker in Tennessee. Not only were hundreds of Americans hired to fill the now-vacant jobs, but the government indicted some directly involved managers. The cases’ common denominators were the aliens’ presence in the labor market, a problem that E-Verify would have averted.

The Commitment to America is encouraging, but skeptics wonder if there’s muscle behind it or if it’s more GOP smoke and mirrors. McCarthyScalise and Stefanik have what’s generously described as tepid voting records on reducing illegal presence and jobs. In the same illegal presence and jobs category, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell scored a zero. About a week ago on the Senate floor, McConnell delivered a squishy speech about immigration’s importance; his tone didn’t reverberate with the Commitment to America theme.

During the campaigning, certain to be contentious, GOP leaders may have an awakening, and persuade undecided voters that American jobs and sovereignty must be saved. Time is short. At Biden’s current pace of admitting the world – including got-aways – the U.S. could have more than 7 million illegal aliens added to its population by 2024, an unsustainable total that will adversely affect every aspect of Americans’ lives.

Russ Vought Sics IRS On Zuck For Election Violations

Russ Vought Sics IRS On Zuck For Election Violations — Russ Vought, the director of  Office of Management and Budget for President Trump from July 2020 to January 2021 and who now heads the Center for Renewing America, has filed complaints with the IRS concerning Mark Zuckerberg behavior in the 2020 election.

Zuckerberg is the filthy-rich, 1-percenter, OK, .01-percenter, who owns Meta formerly Facebook.

Vought says that Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan made $500 million in tax deductible donations to “nonprofits”in the run ups to the election.

This money was managed by former Obama campaign manager David Plouffe.

Yeah, it’s illegal.

Vought explains things on the Sept. 22 edition of “Mornings with Maria” features anchor Maria Bartiromo here: https://rumble.com/v1lw5sa-russ-vought-sics-irs-on-meta-for-zuck-for-election-violations.html

Survival Mindset Should Be In Every Home

Survival Mindset Should Be In Every Home — A retired Green Beret living in Chester County, Pa. has written a must-read book for all who are used to a corner Wawa open 24/7.

Peter Crittenden’s Survival Mindset, A guide on What to do When Things Go Wrong, Bushcraft/Survival, Emergency Planning and Situational Awareness focuses on the mindset.

Yes, it includes very good how-tos. It describes what plants can be eaten (dandelions, yum); and animals, yes the flesh of all frogs is tasty and wholesome. It tells how water can be purified in a clear plastic bottle left in direct sun for six-hours. There are directions on building fires, tying necessary knots, and other things.

Crittenden’s main point, though, is the mental aspects summed up by the acronym S.U.R.V.I.V.A.L: Size up the situation; Use all senses; Remember where you are; Vanquish fear and panic; Improvise; Value living; Act like the natives; Live by you wits/Learn basic skills.

He gives three real life examples of average people surviving likely fatal events by using parts of S.U.R.V.I.V.A.L.

Survival Mindset is unique among fieldcraft or survival guides in that the principles of emergency planning and priorities for survival tasks and preparation are identified and clearly presented

Crittenden retired as a sergeant first class after 25 years in the U.S. Army. He was a SERE school instructor; tracked war criminals in Bosnia and evacuated missionaries from Côte d’Ivoire during its first civil war.

Crittenden was born in Australia and grew up in ex-pat communities in Thailand, Indonesia and Bangladesh due to his father’s engineering jobs.

He described killing cobras — the little ones — in his backyard in Bangladesh, and experienced coups-d’etat and civil wars in Indonesia, Bangladesh and Thailand.

He emigrated to the United States and became a draftsman but didn’t see a future in it so he joined the Army in 1983.

“I found a home,” he said.

He started off in infantry in the 82nd Airborne Division, then Special Forces where he served as an engineering sergeant and then an intelligence sergeant.

After retirement, he worked as a security consultant. This is what inspired the book, which is based on military manuals and his experiences.

He says his clients often enthused about training sessions.

Survival Mindset is published by Blacksmith Publishing and can be found on Amazon. The Kindle edition is less than half the price of the traditional book but this might be a case where you want to splurge.

One never knows when the power might go out.
