Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) introduced an immigration reform bill — with six House Republicans co-sponsoring — in the House on Tuesday that would give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants residing in the U.S. Despite a section of the bill dedicated to enhancing “Border Security and Enforcement,” Salazar’s Dignity Act would put millions of illegal immigrants and ‘dreamers’ on a pathway to citizenship. I’m going to have a deep dive on Salazar’s bill this week but the main part to understand is that most of the promises of border security are already federal law and just not enforced. It is already federal law to build 800 miles of double fence barriers on the border, which was never created. Likewise, Salazar’s bill would make it a federal crime to return to the US after already being deported - but that’s already the law currently. Many parts of her bill talk about giving legalization but not citizenship to certain classes of illegal aliens, however that has been tried and failed before after activist judges waived the legislation process and put them on the pathway to citizenship. The bill is garbage through and through.
According to John Binder at Breitbart News, Salazar’s bill has received support from many elitist organizations, including the US Chamber of commerce — who have donated to Salazar and her co-sponsors — and the Niskanen Center — which is “heavily funded by multinational corporations like Google and mass immigration groups like the Facebook-linked FWD.us, the Shapiro Foundation, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, among others.”
Reuters Investigates released a feature of a 16-year-old girl who illegally immigrated from Guatemala — after borrowing $10,000 for human traffickers to bring her through Mexico — in search of a better life in the U.S. Instead, this teenager is working in slave labor-like conditions for a poultry factory in Alabama after she was released from a shelter for unaccompanied minors due to overcrowding issues.
The feature also documents that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP caught 169,000 unaccompanied minors at the Southern border in 2021, five times more than the previous year. Similar to the teenager in the featured article, they are brought to an unaccompanied minor shelter that is run by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), where they are often released into the mainland due to overcrowding.
President Joe Biden’s immigration and border policies are creating a situation where “every state is a border state,” as Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt describes it. Just The News documents that many mainland states have experienced an uptick in crime relating to illegal migrants this past year. There has also been an increase in fentanyl overdose deaths — particularly in Missouri — where the substances were made in China and trafficked through Mexico by cartels.
According to Breitbart News, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation — the largest shareholder in the Kellogg Company — is bankrolling a $500 a month basic income program for illegal alien families residing in the U.S... Specifically, two non-profit organizations — New Mexico Economic Relief Working Group and UpTogether — are working with the foundation to give 330 illegal alien families, across 13 New Mexico counties, “monthly payments of $500 for 12 months beginning in March.”
According to Fox News, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) data shows that deportations significantly went down over the last fiscal year due to Biden administration policies restricting ICE agents from arresting illegal aliens. In FY 2021, there were only 55,590 deportations compared to FY 2020, where there were 185,884 deportations.
According to Breitbart News, the Biden administration is dropping the 1950’s motto that America is a “Nation of Immigrants” for the more radical phrase “Nation of Welcome.” The new phrase is being adopted by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency (USCIS), overseen by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The new motto is perhaps a retaliation against the Trump administration for dropping the “Nation of Immigrants” motto in order to redirect the mission of the USCIS by implementing an “immigration system to be for the benefit of America.”
According to Breitbart News, the Biden administration is seeking to award a federal contract to put an organization in charge of running a program that would monitor low-risk 18 to 19-year-old illegal migrants. These illegals would be monitored by “community-based services” and would not be monitored via GPS tracking. The likely recipient of the contract is the Biden-linked federal contractor ‘Endeavors.’
According to Breitbart News, consumer prices are up by 7.5 percent, a 0.6 percent climb from the month before; the most prices have ever jumped in nearly four decades. The rise in inflation may cause the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates in March, much earlier than economists were predicting last year.
In an op-ed for the Financial Times, Martin Wolf opines that since the Federal Reserve has kept interest rates low during pandemic recovery for a longer period of time than they needed to, it may be too late to implement stricter controls in order to remedy the inflation crisis.
According to a report from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), southern states that mainly vote ‘red’ in presidential elections, have the lowest life expectancy rates in the country. In contrast, states who generally vote ‘blue’ in presidential elections have some of the highest life expectancy rates in the country.
Furthermore, data from the CDC also shows that states with the highest “obesity rates” also tended to vote ‘red’ in Presidential elections. Here is a breakdown of obsesity from whites, Hispanics, and blacks:
While black Americans had the highest level of obsesity in the US with Hispanics trailing, which is a leading cause of many cormorbidities, life expectancy in many predominitaly working-class white areas was still very low. This county level data shows an estimate life expectancy and many working-class white areas in Applachia, the South, and throughout rural America shows the difference between working-class white communities and wealthier cosmopolitian counties.
