Any time “daddy Trump” tries to remove candy from the spoiled children used to having all they want in Washington, they throw a tantrum and cry racism!
A couple of weeks ago, the President generously offered a path to citizenship to 1.8 million people who were brought here as children, the offer was refused by democrats because part of the deal was funding for the border wall and the end of unlimited chain migration.
We all know why some people don’t want border security, but why the outcry over limiting chain migration, the refugee program and the diversity visa?
As usual, follow the money!
I’ve talked about VOLAGS before. VOLAGS are Voluntary Agencies, charities that receive government funding for bringing and taking care of refugees. And it is a profitable business, so profitable that they even have lobbyists!
All Volag expenses and overhead in the Washington, DC HQ are paid by the U.S. government.
The Volag pockets 25% of every transportation loan it collects from refugees it “sponsors”. Yep, you’ve read this right, even the transportation from their country of origin is paid by our government as a loan, which most never pay back.
The Volag gets up to $2,200 for each refugee by participating in a U.S. DHHS program known as Matching Grant. To get the $2,200, the Volag needs to only show it spent $200 and gave away $800 worth of donated clothes, furniture or cars.
And they get $1,850 per refugee per month (including children) from the State Department.
Now, start adding this up… we take in an average of 112,000 refugees a year, each refugee brings at least 3 relatives after being here, and we give 50,000 diversity visas away each year.
UN personnel often sell access to the program and once here, refugees make false claims of family relationship in order to facilitate wider immigration…. and that’s where the issue with chain migration comes from. These refugees have been bringing relatives that they’ve never seen in their lives, and friends falsely claimed as relatives and every single one costs tax payers an average of $60,000 a year for 5 years, and if after the 5 years they are still unemployable we just keep taking care of their needs. This program desperately needs changing! It’s costing us a fortune and bringing in people who we cannot properly vet.
Democrats and some Republicans found themselves in a tough spot when asked to give up chain migration for amnesty for 1.8 million DACA recipients, which lobbyist should they satisfy? The ones from the big companies who benefit from cheap labor, or the charities who benefit from chain migration connected with the refugee program?
Due to lack of a better way to buy time to figure out how to attend to the needs of different interest groups, while Trump is not negotiable on the border wall, they’ve decided to throw DACA recipients under the bus (at least for now) so they could have enough time to call the entire immigration reform package racist and convince the public that Trump only wants white people to immigrate to the U.S.
And since most democrat voters will never take the time to research the plan presented by the White House, they will never know that the plan was not even close to being white supremacist as I hear them repeating like mindless parrots.
The plan allows for chain migration to continue until the backlog is exhausted, that will probably take another 6-8 years. Probably because all the leeches (VOLAGS) living off this program need some time to find another job. It also maintains the same number of immigrants allowed to come to the U.S. from Mexico, India, China, Dominican Republic, and even s*hole Haiti. And it doesn’t reduce the total number of 1.2 million green cards issued every year.
The border wall and more funding for border security is still the one major change proposed by the President, one which is so important to him that he was willing to allow 1.8 million illegals to gain a clear path to citizenship. But the same democrats who voted YES for a border wall in 2006, now have received a personal revelation that a wall is definitely racist! And just in case you haven’t heard it today: If you want a border wall, the visa lottery gone, end of chain migration, or merit based immigration… regardless of the color of your skin or heritage – You are definitely a white supremacist and a racist!
I’m glad we got that clear
