Democrats are going all-out to deny POTUS Donald Trump the resources he and his administration have been demanding in order to deal with the burgeoning illegal immigrant and humanitarian crisis along our southwest border.
Left-wing judicial activists placed on the federal bench by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are ignoring statutory and case law in order to thwart the Trump administrationâ€™s efforts to enforce all immigration laws.
Meanwhile, in states, cities, and other jurisdictions they control, Democrats are refusing to assist federal immigration agents or are preventing them from doing their jobs outright â€“ quite simply becauseÂ Democrats see millions of new immigrants as their way to perpetual power.
And this, despite the fact that nearly 20 percent of the worldâ€™s migrant populationÂ alreadyÂ resides in the United States.
According toÂ a new study by the Pew Research Center, the U.S. has allowed more foreign nationals in than any other country in the world and is nowÂ at about 18 percent of the global migrant population.
Citing the study,Â Breitbart NewsÂ said that roughly 44.5 million foreign nationals reside in the U.S. now, far above Germanyâ€™s 12.2 million and Russiaâ€™s 12 million.
Combined, however â€“ and to put the figures in perspective â€“ the number of foreign nationals living in the United States exceeds the number living in Germany, Russia, France, and the United KingdomÂ combined. Also, the 44.5 million figure is the highest number of foreign-born living in the U.S. in nearly 108 years, Pew noted.
The last time our foreign-born population was so high in comparison to our native population was 1910; then, immigrants made up some 14.7 percent of our population.
And for the record, though most immigrants back then were white Europeans, native-born Americans were not very accommodating to them. Irish wereÂ depicted as trolls or apesÂ and denigrated in the same manner as blacks, andÂ others including Germans and ItaliansÂ were â€˜frownedâ€™ upon and openly called derogatory names.
The Democrat Party, in particular, was harsh on new arrivals. Period political cartoons dominated by Democratic newspapers often depicted white immigrants as slovenly, ape-ish, monster-like, ill-mannered, poverty-stricken, and needy (as in on the public dole).
Today, however, the Democratic Party uses immigrants as a means of changing the political dynamic in the country â€“ away from the constitutional republic of our founders to a socialist/Marxist nightmare in which they control all levers of power (and the masses).
As Breitbartâ€™s John Binder notes:
Mass immigration has come at the expense of Americaâ€™s working and middle class, which has suffered from poor job growth, stagnant wages, and increased public costs to offset the importation of millions of low-skilled foreign nationals.
Four million young Americans enter the workforce every year, but their job opportunities are further diminished as the U.S. imports roughly two new foreign workers for every four American workers who enter the workforce. Even though researchers say 30 percent of the workforce could lose their jobs due to automation by 2030, the U.S. has not stopped importing more than a million foreign nationals every year.
It should be noted that once upon a time, this very demographic â€“ working and middle-class Americans â€“ was the Democratic Partyâ€™s political power base. Increasingly, this group has swung towards Republicans, which have (once again) become theÂ realÂ party of the American worker under POTUS Donald Trump.
Corporations have played a role in the importation of cheap labor via immigration â€“ illegal and otherwise. But rather than bastions of conservatism, most large companies, especially in the tech industry, are more often run by Democrat-aligned Leftists whoÂ engage in crony capitalismÂ to move into the â€˜elite.â€™
There are far too many Republicans who refuse to see the dangers inherent in limitless immigration. But for the most part, whenever we see political support for open borders, importation of cheap labor, and pushback against any attempt to â€˜Americanizeâ€™ our immigrant population, the Democratic Partyâ€™s filthy hands are all over it.
