Democrats have always been staunch supporters of immigration. Is it because they want to help the poor and needy across the world by giving them a chance at the American dream, or is there a more sinister reason behind their actions?
In truth, Democrats want exactly the opposite of what is good for immigrants. “The result is over half of immigrant households are in our social welfare system,” said Sen. David Perdue (R-GA). “Any time a liberal politician starts fear-mongering, you know you’re onto something good,” he said, arguing that the reform is based on what Canada has enacted successfully, as reported by Fox News.
Perdue and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), introduced a proposal to change the legal immigration system to be based on merit – and were instantly met with derision from liberals in the Senate.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), would start with the demagoguery almost immediately. Fox News reported on her remarks, “From the start, President Trump has pushed a hateful, senseless anti-immigrant agenda that instills fear in our communities, weakens our nation, and dishonors our values. Whether unleashing a deportation force to tear apart families, or threatening the protections of DACA, or backing the tired cruelty of this bill, the Trump Administration continues to choose discrimination over smart policies that strengthen and enrich our nation.”
Aside from the inflammatory language, these remarks serve as nothing more than political demagoguery meant to incite emotion rather than an understanding of the facts.
Perdue noted that only one in 15 legal immigrants have the skill to enter the workforce, meaning a massive portion of immigrants end up on welfare. Does growing the social welfare base constitute “strengthening and enriching our nation?” In reality, the Democrats’ desire for unrestrained immigration isn’t so much about improving the country as it is about creating an indentured voting block that will forever vote them into power.
Ann Coulter, a prominent conservative author, stated during the Obama administration “immigration is the one overriding issue for the entire country for all-time,” and that “if immigration continues the way it has been going, we are looking at 100 years of President Obamas,” Breitbart reported. Coulter also pointed out “the American people are being out-voted, we can’t win anything…So tell me how you are going to win on any of these issues then?”
Democrats have lulled undocumented immigrants to the United States only to see them put on our welfare roles. Do you agree with Trump that work-ready, skilled laborers should be a priority in our immigration policy?
Her comments at the time echoed a worried sentiment that many conservatives shared regarding the future of the country. While Trump would end up getting elected president only one year later, Coulter’s remarks still loom in the background of many people’s minds.
Should the Democrats come back into power again, how long will it take for them to tilt the scales of immigration so much that Republicans lose any realistic shot of winning the White House?
Hopefully, we won’t be in a position to find out anytime soon.
