COVID-19 (the grand daddy of all problem-reaction-solution events) has killed 30 million America jobs. So, why on earth would any sane leader of the USG allow immigrants to enter the nation during a time of crisis and economic uncertainty to polish off the last of the remaining work?
Republican lawmakers are pushing Trump to suspend the H-1B and OPT programs for a year or until the unemployment rate, which has reached almost 15 percent, returns to a normal level.
“Given the extreme lack of available jobs for American job-seekers as portions of our economy begin to reopen, it defies common sense to admit additional foreign guest workers to compete for such limited employment,” Sens. Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Chuck Grassley, and Josh Hawley wrote in a letter to the White House on May 7.
My favorite thing about President Trump is that he’s not a huge fag.
Trump does not pretend that more diversity and immigration is a good thing for America. Real Americans have always understood the inherent danger that is always present when peoples of irreconcilable cultures and traditions find themselves side-by-side.
For example, let’s read this quote from founding father and German-scolder Benjamin Franklin. He wrote this is 1751 (14 years before the American Revolution) in an essay called Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind:
Why should the Palatine Boors be suffered to swarm into our Settlements, and by herding together establish their Language and Manners to the Exclusion of ours? Why should Pennsylvania, founded by the English, become a Colony of Aliens, who will shortly be so numerous as to Germanize us instead of our Anglifying them, and will never adopt our Language or Customs, any more than they can acquire our Complexion?
Why should they be suffered indeed!
The most interesting part of Benjamin’s passage is that today it is now estimated that their are as many as 300,000 German speakers in Pennsylvania. That’s more than 5 times the number of German speakers that lived in Pennsylvania at the time that Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind.
It makes you wonder, how many people living in the United States in the year 2289 will prefer Spanish to English?
