Michael Bloomberg’s Ready-Made Network of Cities in Support of His Open Borders Agenda

Bloomberg this week: US needs many more immigrants, not less as battle shapes up with Trump over major issue of our time! https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/472218-bloomberg-calls-for-more-immigrants-rather-than-less

In 2010, the forward-thinking mayor of New York created the National Partnership for a New American Economy.  I say forward-thinking because now 9 years later, he has what amounts to a local government network of cities that favor more immigration as he launches his bid to defeat Donald Trump in 2020.

Bloomberg’s pals: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partnership_for_a_New_American_Economy#cite_note-NYC.gov-1

He and his cohorts have been awarding prizes, including grants and cataloging cities by their willingness to welcome an ever increasing number of immigrants with his special desire to legalize more of the illegals.

Really what you see here is a list of (bipartisan) corporations that say they can’t live without immigrant laborers.

In between your turkey and stuffing and parade watching, take a look at the extensive website and operation Bloomberg has put in place.

I don’t see anything like this kind of organization anywhere in the immigration control movement.  Well, maybe NumbersUSA could come close on the other side of the argument about workers.

It really is a no-brainer, too many foreign workers depress wages of Americans including African Americans, but for moneybags like Bloomberg there is no such thing as too many low skilled and low wage immigrants!

Here, earlier this month, Bloomberg’s gang is chortling about bringing Midwestern cities into the light of their understanding.

New ranking of top 100 cities shows Midwestern cities are becoming more welcoming to immigrants

(You can read it yourself).

And, since we are talking about mayors and city leaders falling in line, don’t miss RRW today and see if your mayor is one of 88 telling the President that they want 100,000 refugees and want the feds (with their taxpayer funded contractors) to continue to decide which lucky cities will welcome the stranger.

Oh….and lest I forget….

…..Happy Thanksgiving from me to you!

Illinois: Edgar County Watchdogs Show How it Should be Done!

A couple of days ago, I told you that you must become community organizers and fight to save your towns and cities. By re-electing Donald Trump you buy four more years to get to work!

Reader Judy came across an inspirational story that, although five years old, tells us what is possible when just a few people get together, investigate, and then hold elected officials accountable.

From Take Back Our Power:

Entire county board arrested following citizens arrest by 2 military veterans

 

Clark County, Illinois — Sometimes citizens can be so frustrated with county board members they wish someone could just place them under arrest. Well, that is exactly what citizens in Clark County, Illinois did.

Illinois’ number one manufactured product is corruption. More than 95 percent of the Illinois legislature is safe in gerrymandered districts. The incumbent governor has three current federal investigations of his administration, but the Attorney General/state’s attorney class can’t find public vice anywhere.

Residents that voted in the recent election said they are hoping officials have learned from the past mistakes of others.

So what can the law abiding citizen do? The answer is coming from some regular guys in southern Illinois who decided to hold public officials accountable. They call themselves the “Watchdogs.”

Kirk Allen and John Kraft — two military veterans — live in Edgar County which just might be the most corrupt county in the country. For a couple of watchdogs, it’s a target rich environment.

In an effort to take back their government from self-serving politicians and bureaucrats, Kraft and Allen established a group called the Edgar County Watchdogs. Through a combination of public pressure, Freedom of Information filings, lawsuits, and media exposure, they have created a system that deeply threatens Illinois’ corrupt, entrenched political establishment. They operate a blog called Illinois Leaks that exposes corruption at the state and local levels. The blog is so popular that, it is trusted more than the local paper.

Considering the fact that, according to Forbes, their home county’s government has racked up over $79 million in debt all on its own while serving only 18,000 residents, Kraft and Allen have their work cut out for them.

By relentlessly pursuing justice for even the smallest infractions by bureaucrats and politicians, the Edgar County Watchdogs have driven 102 public officials to resign from their posts, including 33 officials in Edgar County alone.

The pair busted the mayor of Redmond for attempting to hold office while living out of town. They represented themselves in court and beat Illinois Assistant Attorney General Emma Steimel in a lawsuit seeking access to state e-mails. Officials who have resigned due to the Watchdogs’ efforts include a property tax assessor, the Edgar County board chairman, an entire airport board and its manager, the attorney for Kansas Township’s fire department, Shiloh’s superintendent of schools, and Effingham’s health department administrator, among others. After they exposed corrupt, illegal, and self-serving spending habits by the Ford-Iroquois County health department, the entire bureaucracy was dissolved. In some cases, federal agents have even stepped in to investigate and issue subpoenas to local officials after receiving tips from Kraft and Allen.

Since the story is old, I checked to see if their blog is still up and running and it is, see it here.

Their facebook page is up-to-date.

There is no reason that you can’t do this where you live!

Bernie’s Immigration Plan Goes Full Bore Open Borders

I know most of you reading this don’t care a bit about Bernie and his huge move to the Far Left on the issue of immigration, but since I have a category here at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ for “politicians as frauds” I want to tell you about Democrat candidate for Prez, Bernie Sanders.

Bernie: America for all!

This also gives me an opportunity to warn you about the growing call for America to ‘welcome’ so-called “climate refugees” which I have written about extensively for ten years.  (See 53 posts going back to December 2008 on climate refugees at RRW by clicking here.)

It is very interesting to see how the Left plants seeds and nurtures them for years and years (helped by the mainstream media) until the idea surfaces, in this case, as a plank in a Presidential candidate’s platform.

Bernie is now throwing American workers under the bus….

Before I get to the news about Bernie’s plan, I guess we have to conclude that Bernie is now throwing American workers under the bus.  When he ran for President four years ago he was still getting some praise for his stance in defense of American workers and his earlier opposition to the failed 2007  comprehensive immigration reform bill.  See Time magazine story here in January 2016.

Here then is Fox News on Bernie’s immigration platform:

Sanders’ immigration plan: Halt deportations, abolish ICE, welcome 50K ‘climate migrants,’ give welfare to all

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on Thursday released a sweeping immigration plan that would impose a moratorium on deportations, “break up” existing immigration enforcement agencies, grant full welfare access to illegal immigrants and welcome a minimum of 50,000 “climate migrants” in the first year of a Sanders administration.

Climate refugees coming your way if Trump is not reelected! (No matter which Dem wins!)

The plan effectively establishes Sanders at the far left of the immigration debate,as he aims to energize a base that helped drive his 2016 primary campaign amid competition from other liberal candidates in the field this time around.

[….]

The plan was written in conjunction with several illegal immigrants who were shielded from deportation by former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

In the plan, Sanders pledges to extend legal status to those eligible under the DACA program, as well as to grant relief for their parents.

He also promises to use executive authority to allow illegal immigrants who have lived in the country for five or more years to stay “free from threat of deportation.”

On day one of a Sanders presidency, he would also place a moratorium on deportations until there was a full audit of “current and past practices and policies.” He would also end the so-called Trump travel ban, as well as other Trump policies such as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), action against sanctuary cities and the public charge rule that restricts green cards to those immigrants deemed likely to rely on welfare.

Sanders then wants to provide a “pathway to citizenship” via Congress for all illegal immigrants living in America — which he says is currently around 11 million — and would ensure that “old or low-level contacts with the criminal justice system” do not prevent illegal immigrants from walking along that path.

[….]

He would also create a new program to “welcome migrants displaced by climate change” and push to accept a minimum of 50,000 “climate migrants” in his first year in office.

Bernie is just following the tribe….

House Democrats introduce climate refugee bill

Here is a story from the day before the bill was introduced. Imagine the fraud this will create—yikes! the weather has changed where I live so I can now move to America!

At Grist (hat tip: Joanne):

House Democrats are set to introduce the first major piece of legislation to establish protections for migrants displaced by climate change, ramping up a push for a long-overdue framework for how the United States should respond to a crisis already unfolding on its shores.

The bill, called the Climate Displaced Persons Act,would create a federal program separate from the existing refugee program to take in a minimum of 50,000 climate migrants starting next year.

The legislation, a copy of which HuffPost obtained, directs the White House to collect data on people displaced by extreme weather, drought and sea level rise and submit an annual report to Congress. It also requires the State Department to work with other federal agencies to create a Global Climate Resilience Strategy that puts global warming at the center of U.S. foreign policy.

Nydia Velázquez,has been in Congress for 25 years!

The bill, set to be introduced by Representative Nydia Velázquez, a New York Democrat, is a companion to legislation proposed by Massachusetts Democratic Senator Ed Markey, one of the leading advocates for a Green New Deal. Its introduction in the House of Representatives marks an escalation as Democrats start to flesh out what a sweeping federal plan to eliminate emissions and prepare the country for more climate catastrophe would look like.

The 21-page proposal looks unlikely to become law while Donald Trump, who rejects climate science and slashed the country’s refugee cap to a historic low of 18,000 last month, remains president.

Yup!

And that is why everyone reading this post needs to find some place to direct your energy to get Donald Trump reelected for four more years.

 

Will Immigrant Voters Sway 2020 Presidential Contest?

Opinions vary!

No wonder Hillary HATES the Electoral College—it dilutes the immigrant vote!

Of course Open Borders, Inc. is assuming that and at every corner of their movement they are driving the naturalization process and making it easy for the ‘new Americans’ to register to vote.

But, will the new voters turn out, and are they located in the right places? 

Those are just some of the questions raised in a very informative piece at a Middle Eastern news outlet (MENAFN) entitled:

Immigrant voters stand in Trump’s re-election path

Of course it is self-evident that the primary drive to flood the US with immigrants is to ultimately get them voting because at this point in time, a large majority will vote for the Dems.

Republican optimists think they can persuade a growing number who came here legally to support the rule of law, after all the legal immigrants did follow the law.  However, that won’t be nearly enough to counter what they fear is an anti-immigrant message from the President.

The Democrat Party message of free stuff is pretty persuasive as well!

But perhaps the most interesting nugget of information in here that I hadn’t thought of (duh!), and explains the enormous hatred the Electoral College holds for Dems, is that most immigrants choose to live in states like New York and California that the Dems have already sown-up.

In other words, more immigrant voters in NY and CA won’t change the Electoral map.

By encouraging more Democrat-voting immigrants to go to Texas, Georgia, Arizona and Florida (to name a few), they hope to get those states in line as well. Others to follow!

I guess that is why the US Refugee Program and its Leftwing resettlement agencies sought to bring the ‘joys of diversity’ to as many rural states and small towns as they could—so those refugees might someday be joined with other immigrants to change most of America.

Here is just some of the article you should read:

(MENAFN – Gulf Times) This is where a nation changes: a public school auditorium that moonlights as a veritable citizenship factory.

At the M O Campbell Educational Centre, where murals honouring the arts and sciences adorn the walls, US immigration officials routinely hold packed naturalisation ceremonies.

Immigrants approved for citizenship walk in, take the oath of allegiance, and walk out as Americans and as a small army of new voters.

‘It will never, ever be easier to register than it is this morning, US district judge Keith P Ellison [NOT Minnesota Ellison—ed], who presided over a ceremony last month, told the 2,155 immigrants from more than 100 countries who had just taken their citizenship oaths.

‘The record for registrations is 89% of those who are sworn in. … Let’s see if we can break that record today.

Amish Soni, a 34-year-old radiologist from India holding a small American flag, was one of the 85% who registered to vote that morning, aided by a volunteer from the League of Women Voters. He ‘definitely plans to vote in 2020, partly because he thinks the healthcare system should be fixed, but also: ‘I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump. And he’s far from the only one.

At ceremonies like these across the country, hundreds of thousands of immigrants are expected to receive their US citizenship and become eligible to vote before November 2020, gently reshaping and threatening the electoral path that President Donald Trump must thread to win re-election.

Over the last two decades, naturalised immigrants have grown into a force at the ballot box, with the US recently swearing in more than 700,000 foreign-born US citizens each year.

[….]

Surveys show that many of the new citizens are liberal-leaning, which is one of several demographic trends helping put some historically red states such as Texas, Arizona and Georgia closer to Democrats’ reach.

[….]

Diego says they will come out in opposition to Trump: “A lot of folks are responding to the climate of fear and division and general intimidation against immigrant and refugee communities.” You can be sure Diego and his pals are making sure that a climate of fear is sufficiently whipped-up!

According to data collected by the New Americans Campaign, a coalition of non-profits, almost a third of US immigrants hoping to naturalise this year were most interested in gaining the power to vote the ‘top reason by far, said Melissa Rodgers, the director of programmes at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, which runs the coalition.

[….]

Filing an application does not necessarily lead to naturalisation; the denial rate is usually about one in 10. Immigrant advocacy groups have complained that the Trump administration has allowed a backlog to pile up, putting some applicants at risk of missing the 2020 election.

Latino and Asian immigrants are particularly potent additions to the electorate, with turnout rates that are often five to eight percentage points higher than their natural-born counterparts, according to Census estimates.

[….]

At the presidential level, naturalised immigrants’ voting power is largely diluted by the electoral college. New citizens most commonly settle in Democratic bastions such as California and New York, where their votes are not expected to affect the next presidential election.

Along with Texas, Florida is a key exception. The battleground state adds between 70,000 and 100,000 naturalised citizens each year, with more than 20,000 born in communist Cuba, a more conservative voter bloc that has helped Republicans maintain razor-thin majorities in the state.

There is much more here!

I am by no means an election strategist.  What do you think?

I do know this:  The take away message for at least this next Presidential election cycle should be—save the Electoral College—and you better VOTE!

Reminder!  Almost every day there is new news at Refugee Resettlement Watch. Check it out!

DC and Virginia Do NOT Want Federal Shelters for Unaccompanied Alien Children

This is an update of a story I posted here in August where we learned that even the Washington Post was calling out local Leftwing politicians for their hypocrisy!

It is your classic ‘Not-in-my-backyard’ tale.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has rolled out new regulations in a bid to block the project!

Washington, DC and its wealthy (Democrat-run) bedroom communities of northern Virginia do not want shelters for the mostly teens coming across our borders illegally.

Send them to Arizona and Texas instead!

From the Washington Business Journal:

Trump administration drops plans for Northern Virginia immigrant shelter

The Trump administration has called off its plans to bring a new shelter for unaccompanied immigrant children to Northern Virginia.

Federal officials are “no longer conducting exploratory assessments of vacant properties to lease” in the region, according to an email from spokespeople with the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement. The agency revealed in August that it was considering a variety of Northern Virginia jurisdictions for a new, 110,000-square-foot facility.

But that move prompted fierce pushback from local leaders…

[….]

The HHS officials did not say why they ultimately declined to pursue a shelter in the region. They added in the email that they’ve also stopped searching for space in Atlanta, Central Florida and Los Angeles, and will likely pursue new facilities in Texas and Arizona instead.

The mayor of Alexandria, Virginia, Justin Wilson, said if the feds send some bucks to the city he might consider discussing it further.

“If the federal government wished to provide the city with the resources to care for these children, in partnership, I would be open to discussing such a scenario,” Wilson wrote. “But as it has been presented to the city at this point, I do not believe this is something the city should be a part of.”

The Trump administration’s plans for a similar immigrant shelter in D.C. are considerably more unsettled.

Separately from the search for space in Northern Virginia, HHS also plans to work with Maryland-based contractor Dynamic Service Solutions to open a new shelter in Takoma. Mayor Muriel Bowser, however, has rolled out new regulations in a bid to block that project, though it remains unclear whether federal officials have a way to sidestep her efforts.
