As taxpayers do we pay to crack down on illegal workers or do we pay to protect America’s immigrant workforce? The answer is both. We fund enforcement to control illegal labor. Then we pay again because Congressional Democrats obstruct our efforts.
24 Democrats have lots to offer in this pre-election year. Their promises will be piled high on your plate before the real theatrics even get started. The stage is set with twin House and Senate bills calling for universal health care and election-stealing changes for the people to “renew Americans’ faith in our democracy.”1
I don’t know about you, but I never lost that faith even though I’ve heard that I should have.
An In the News post from Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) accuses ICE of being a “rogue, corrupt agency.”1 Pressley and other Democrats oppose funds to ICE and Customs and Border Protection on principle despite new reports from CBP of “unprecedented volumes of aliens”2 streaming into the Texas Rio Grande Valley Sector.
Democrats wrapped up their April 2019 Issues Conference with effusive praise for their fight for the people:
This was the best, the most exciting because we really had an opportunity to reflect on the work that we’ve done in the first 100 days – which I daresay is more than was done in the last eight years for the American people…1
That’s a pretty big boast.
Candidates running for office aren’t known for telling the truth when they make promises. Despite bitter experience we overlook that fact and vote for them anyway. That’s one of the reasons that offering bribes to millions of people that will never be paid is such a popular, legal, and unethical campaign strategy.
