Create A Catastrophe By The Numbers

Create A Catastrophe By The Numbers

By Joe Guzzardi

850,000 visitors who overstayed their visas and remained in the country in 2022. Included in visa overstays are tourists, H-1Bs, J-1s, and F-1s as well as assorted other visa categories of which dozens are State Department-approved.

More executive branch overreach: the Biden administration has expanded its migrant program to accept up to 522,000 asylum seekers into the U.S. per year. In January the president announced he would let up to 360,000 asylum seekers into the country annually, provided they apply through the CBP One phone app. That program has since been expanded from 1,000 appointments per day to 1,450, meaning up to another 162,000 migrants could be ushered into the U.S. In Biden’s view, these are legal immigrants even though the vehicle he created that allows them to enter, the CBP app, has not been congressionally approved and is illegal. Meanwhile, the CBP app entrants will be using their work authorized status to displace low-skilled black, Hispanic and other diverse Americans from the job market.

What’s certain is that the border surgers’ and visa overstay totals, whatever they may be, represent record levels of illegal immigration that’s Biden’s unlawful agenda. Neither Biden nor DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas have the authority to authorize releasing aliens, or as happens in most cases, to grant them parole with work authorization. Despite the cooked-books style of revised DHS accounting, Southwest border encounters are still roughly four times the level at which President Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said constituted a crisis. Federal law requires that all these illegal aliens be detained throughout their asylum proceedings, but most are being released. Immigration lawyers call CPB’s subversion aiding and abetting illegal immigration a federal felony subject to fines and imprisonment.  

The fall-out from Biden’s lawless immigration agenda is well underway. Every day, an estimated 1,000 needy migrantsarrive in New York. The city, by its own admission, doesn’t have adequate housing or food to properly care for them. Tent cities abound. Mayor Eric Adams is pleading for federal assistance. Other big city mayors in Chicago and Washington D.C.  also begged for funding to cope with the migrant overflow. In Massachusetts the alien emergency is so dire that Governor Maura Healey and Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll have implored residents to share their homes with aliens. Their desperate refrain: “Become a sponsor family…. Have an additional family be a part of your family.” Taxpayers are subsidizing illegal aliens most every move once they’ve crossed the border. One estimate puts the aggregate cost to date at $20.5 billion./p>

With 18 months to go in Biden’s presidency that will include a lame duck session when any immigration outrage is possible, the nation’s intake of illegal immigrants could approach ten million, roughly the size of Los Angeles Country. Remember too that legal immigration continues on autopilot, and brings in annually more than one million lawful permanent residents with lifetime valid work permission. Those new LPRs can petition their immediate and non-nuclear family members, a total that Princeton University conservatively calculates as three persons per new immigrants. Today’s one million LPR’s is tomorrows three million new U.S. residents. Chain migration drives most U.S. population increases, and arriving migrants may be pregnant and could eventually grow his existing family.

From 1990 to today, the U. S. grew by 82 million people, and the nation is on a reckless course to match or exceed that unsustainable pattern. In 2022, all immigrant classifications included, the nation added 6.9 million people—the state of Indiana’s population. Those that entered legally, 1.1 million, may have job and English language skills. Illegal immigrants, however, are poor, unskilled, and will be dependent on affirmative government assistance programs. They’ll need the basics—housing, medical care, education, all of which will be taxpayer provided.

Absorbing the new arrivals will adversely alter Americans’ quality of life. The American Farmland Trust reported that over the last 20 years, the U.S. has lost more than 11 million acres of farmland to development to accommodate the nation’s soaring population. Housing hasn’t kept up with immigration-driven population growth, and prices have spiked. Over the past two decades, immigrants currently account for about 33 percent of all U.S. household growth, and have been a critical factor in the housing market’s recent boom. Blue collar workers and citizens aspired to own their first homes have been most adversely affected.

Unquestionably, new immigrants arrive in the U.S. to become consumers; their intention to buy goods and services is the main reason corporate America is so welcoming. But immigrants will also consume natural resources, most importantly water. The U.S., beset by relentless drought, is drying up, especially in the nation’s Western states, and rain isn’t falling fast enough to offset increased water consumption.  When water supplies are limited, and more people consuming the essential resource, shortages will get acute. Ask the 40 million residents of the seven states that rely on the Colorado River for water what their feelings are about more and more immigrant water consumers lowering the reservoirs.

A final, important note:The White House’s hell-bent-for-leather welcome-the-world immigration agenda is unarguably a disaster for sovereign America. The media coverup is nearly as criminal and corrupt as Biden’s governance. America’s future is in your hands—you the voters. When Congress returns after Labor Day, the election 2024 cycle will begin in earnest. As you evaluate the White House, Senate and House of Representative candidates, focus on whether the incumbent has stepped up in an effort to protect the American nation or supported and encouraged Biden as illegal immigrants overwhelm the country. Immigration is the most critical issue on the ballot. Fight back with the most important tool you have—your vote.

Confucius Classrooms Confusing US Kids

Confucius Classrooms Confusing US Kids

By Bob Small

Recently Scott in Vermont alerted me to the “Confucius Classrooms” aka Confucius Institutes, sponsored by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). This sounded like conspiracy theory.

This is not a conspiracy theory and is occuring nationally.

According to Newsweek, these “Confucius Classrooms are funded by the CCP’s Propaganda Department of the CCP” and that “nobody in Washington warned the school districts not to accept the freebie”

Yes, these programs were supported by the State Department.

Then Secretary of State Mike Pompeo designated the Confucius Institute as “a foreign mission” in 2020 leaving open the question of what it was before then.

The Daily Beast sees it as a “China Conspiracy Theory”.

This article, all 20 pages of it, is the most extensive on this phenomenon, listing all schools in Pennsylvania and 32 other states where this program is operating.

Germantown Academy in Ft. Washington, Pa boasts being the first Confucius Classroom in Pennsylvania.

Note that there are five other Pennsylvania school sistricts involved, including the School District of Philadelphia.

Here are my questions;

  1. Shouldn’t there be a reciprocal program with schools in China?
  2. Is there any oversight on what is taught by the Confucius Classrooms?
  3. Should we be allowing these classes to be taught by the CCP in the first place?
  4. What officials have been aware of this?

Let me also say that our schools need to have lessons taught by persons from other cultures, but one wonders if the CCP, which views Nepal and Taiwan differently than our official government policy, is exactly whom we need to be doing this.
