    In 2004's preachy, much panned leftist mockumentary, A Day without a Mexican, the supposedly hypothetical scenario, about how California would fall apart if all its Mexicans, including illegals, somehow disappeared, was acted out.  The film had a grand old time portraying white people as a bunch of soft, privileged fools, unable to clean even their own toilets. This is annoying because it lumps most Americans into a stereotype of a typically feckless, over-monied limousine liberal, such as you might really find in Hollywood circles. But it did raise the question of U.S. dependence on illegal foreign labor. Seems we might just be experiencing that now with the big meat...
  • Trump: ‘We’re Not Going to Have Farms’ Without H-2A Foreign Visa Workers

    President Trump says he has committed to American farmers to continue admitting large numbers of H-2A foreign visa workers to take agricultural jobs, even as jobless claims are set to climb above 3.3 million in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis. During a press briefing on Wednesday, Trump suggested United States farms would not survive without a continuous flow of H-2A foreign visa workers who are brought to the country by farmers. There is no limit to how many H-2A foreign visa workers can be admitted to the U.S.
  • Corporations Embark on Mass 'Firing Sprees,' but Want More Foreign Labor

    For years now, corporations in the United States have clamored for more foreign-born workers. The main reason for this need, they insist, is to remedy an alleged labor shortage. Indeed, by examining the unemployment trend line, every year since 2010 has brought progressively lower jobless numbers, and since President Trump took office, businesses are reporting record profits and growth. Furthermore, acting White House chief of Staff Nick Mulvaney recently declared that the U.S. labor force is “desperate — desperate — for more people” to immigrate into the country. So, this surface examination of the U.S. economy tells us that we’ve...

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers, mega-donors to the GOP establishment, helped market endless free trade policies to Democrat politicians, a new book details. A report by the Intercept outlines a recently released book titled Kochland by Christopher Leonard where the author alleges that brothers Charles and David Koch funded a 2007 report by the left-wing Third Way organization to warn Democrat politicians against the populist, economic nationalist arguments made by Lou Dobbs at the time. Though aligned for the last few decades with Republican lawmakers, the Kochs were major supporters of the economic policies of the Obama administration which sought...

    CLINTON, SC (WSPA) – Officials with Shaw Industries confirmed to 7News that some of the workload following the closure of their Clinton facility in August will be absorbed by two area correctional institutions. We reported earlier that Shaw announced Monday that the company will close its engineered hardwood flooring manufacturing plant on Torrington Road on Aug. 24, leaving 120 employees without a job. The plant’s production will move to other Shaw operations in the Southeast. The company said the move is being made to “most effectively meet customer needs.” On Wednesday, Mark Hartline, senior director of human resources at Shaw...

    A bipartisan deal to bring millions of immigrants out of the shadows, and pay for a secure border. Americans are frustrated by the inaction of their federal government on comprehensive immigration reform and border security. So are we. We both represent districts on Long Island, and we have both worked on immigration-related issues for over 25 years — one of us, Representative Suozzi, from the perspective of immigrant’s rights as a mayor, as a county executive and now as a member of Congress; the other, Representative King, from the perspective of border security as a former county comptroller, and now...

    South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham issued a statement Thursday calling for President Donald Trump to invoke national emergency powers to fund his border wall. "Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi's refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier -- even if the government were to be reopened -- virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier," Graham said in a statement. "It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier."

    I’ve been blogging since the Bush presidency, through the war on terror, the rise of Obama, and the rise of Trump. I thought I’d seen it all.I never imagined an Ann Coulter/Lindsey Graham convergence on immigration.Is the man known to righties as “Grahamnesty” turning over a new leaf or is he working an angle here? The question answers itself. “He’s not going to sign a bill that doesn’t have money for the wall. I can tell you exactly how this is going to end. The president is going to challenge Democrats to compromise and if they continue to say...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the media and Trump critics for their attacks on the administration's use of tear gas on groups of migrants trying to cross the southern border. Graham (R-S.C.) said that their "narrative that Trump is a cruel, heartless bastard only works if he uses tear gas on kids." He referenced the Obama administration's repeated use of tear gas at the border, including in late November 2013. "When he uses tear gas, he's protecting the country," Graham said of the left's coverage of Obama's actions.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of President Trump’s most vocal allies on Capitol Hill, endorsed the White House demand for $5 billion in border wall funding in order to avert a partial government shutdown on Friday at midnight. “It’s right to fight for wall funding. The House-passed bill is reasonable. Let’s Dig in!” Graham tweeted, referring to the House measure that includes $5.7 billion in wall funding. That legislation is unlikely to pass the Senate. The South Carolina Republican was echoing remarks he made earlier this month. “He needs to dig in and get the very Democrats who voted for...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned Sunday that a legislative fix to the partial government shutdown won't be passed by the Senate without border security funding. "At the end of the day, there's a deal to be had," Graham said during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union." "But everybody is changing their position here and most Americans are pretty tired of it. So to my Democratic friends, there will never be a deal without wall funding and many Republicans are going to offer something as an incentive to vote for wall funding that you have supported in the past."...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that President Trump is "open-minded" but non-committal about a potential deal that would include border security funding and offer protections for young immigrants that he has floated to resolve the ongoing government shutdown. Graham said Trump remained adamant that any agreement must include money for the president's desired wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Graham told reporters outside the White House that he spoke with Trump about a possible arrangement that would include $5 billion for border security, renewable work permits for beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and visas for...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Sunday said a deal that combines $5 billion for President Trump’s border wall with an extension of legal status for “Dreamers” and people fleeing conflict or natural disasters back home could “save the day in the Senate” and reopen the government. “We need to start talking again,” the Republican told CNN’s State of the Union. “To my Democratic friends: There will never be a deal without wall funding.” He said in return, immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children should be eligible for legal status and authorization to work for three years...

    Fourteen of the 23 GOP members who signed the cheap-labor Discharge Petition amnesty in June will be gone from Congress in January. The group’s wipeout came after they worked with House Speaker Paul Ryan to block the pro-American, compromise immigration reform bill prepared by Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the chairman of the House judiciary committee.

    Romaine lettuce is unsafe to eat in any form, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday in a broad alert in response to a new outbreak of illnesses caused by a particularly dangerous type of E. coli contamination. The CDC told consumers to throw away any romaine lettuce they may already have purchased. Restaurants should not serve it, stores should not sell it, and people should not buy it, no matter where or when the lettuce was grown. It doesn’t matter if it is chopped, whole head or part of a mix. All romaine should be avoided.

    During a town hall event on Wednesday night, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) — running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the Senate seat — told a black American who questioned his support of illegal immigration that illegal aliens from Central America and Mexico are today’s cotton pickers. O’Rourke’s remarks were made after a black American asked the congressman if he supported illegal aliens being given U.S. citizenship despite breaking the country’s immigration laws. O’Rourke responded by saying that it is illegal aliens who are working at cotton gins today.
