The border crisis didn’t stop just because of the Wuhan virus.
Coyotes are still trafficking illegal aliens into the country.
But one state has made the border crisis worse with an insane decision.
The Democrats’ policies on immigration make absolutely no sense.
They throw out meaningless slogans like “diversity is our strength” and “we’re a nation of immigrants” that have nothing to do with actual immigration law.
America takes in one million legal immigrants a year, so illegal immigration isn’t needed for the purposes of “diversity.”
And America has had far more restrictive immigration policies in the past like the moratorium on immigration for decades.
But with endless flows of people coming into the country, assimilation has become much more difficult, particularly when leftists are teaching immigrants that America is a terrible place.
And New Jersey is making the problem worse with a new policy that Democrat Governor Phil Murphy is prepared to sign into law.
The new policy would allow illegal aliens to acquire occupational licenses.
In the middle of a pandemic with millions of Americans out of work, New Jersey Democrats thought it was important to pass this legislation.
Meanwhile, the governor is arresting citizens for operating their businesses.
The Federation for Immigration Reform ripped the move made by New Jersey.
FAIR State and Local Engagement Director Shari Randall said of the move:
“Allowing those in the country illegally to get occupational or professional licenses takes jobs away from American citizens and legal immigrants…Already there are more than 1.3 million unemployed individuals in New Jersey who are suffering as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdowns.”
This is of course correct.
Donald Trump has taken steps to shut down the border in light of the pandemic and ensure that Americans get first crack at job opportunities.
“Providing occupational or professional licenses to those in the country illegally incentivizes more illegal immigration. With high unemployment, the legislative focus should have been targeted to unemployed citizens and legal immigrants in New Jersey who desperately need to go back to work, instead of encouraging more illegal immigration.”
Randall hits the nail on the head.
Encouraging illegal immigration in this current climate is asinine, but Democrats are determined to entice people to flood into the country.
During the primary process, Democrats called for policies such as tearing down the existing border with Mexico, granting amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens in the country as well as free abortions.
This is a sign of a party that’s gone completely off the reservation.
They’ve forgotten that their job is to serve the American people, not globalists who want open borders.
