Big news this week: Republican Senators have sold out America again. They just passed a new bill that will no-doubt bring millions of new immigrants and eliminate thousands of American jobs.
Should we even be surprised anymore?
Republicans have been complete pushovers on immigration since at least the 1980s when Ronald Reagan made the single mistake of his presidency: CAVING ON IMMIGRATION.
Reagan granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants!
He did so in exchange for increased border security and a lot of patriotic promises to favor American labor. Neither of those things happened for Reagan.
40 years later and they still haven’t happened.
Even in the midst of a global pandemic, our Republican Senators are jumping at the chance to crush the soul of the American worker and haul in new labor.
Because, OF COURSE THEY ARE.
Senator for Google, er, Utah, Mike Lee introduced the bill is called the “Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act” and it passed the Senate unanimously.
Apparently, a bunch of so-called “Republican” senators truly believe that a great way to recover from a self-imposed recession is to import cheap labor that will take jobs from Americans and drive down the wages of those still employed.
And unlike Ronald Reagan, these idiots didn’t even pretend to get a promise for something in exchange for their total acquiescence to one of the most destructive liberal policies there is.
It seems they’re hoping Americans are not paying attention. Or maybe it’s that they’re the ones who can’t pay attention?
President Trump gained massive popularity in 2016 with one key, three word phrase. Not “import cheap labor.” Not “more immigrants, please.” It was “BUILD THE WALL!”
And no matter what you think of the election – that Donald Trump still might win – there’s no disputing that 74 million Republicans stood by the guy who promised to build a wall and put America First.
How many of those voters do these Republicans think they’ll win with an immigration policy that makes it easier to get into our country but harder to get a job?
Maybe it’s time for these RINOs to stop playing for the wrong side and start fighting for Americans. Especially if President Trump isn’t around to do it any more.
