Botox Barbie puts a cosmetically crafted smile on matters:Smitty has more faith in divine retribution than I do.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will travel to the southern border of the U.S. on Saturday to be briefed by Customs and Border Protection on the flood of unaccompanied minors entering the country.I guess there is probably some fool in Portland, Oregon who doesn’t think this so-called “humanitarian crisis” isn’t some kind of manufactured Cloward-Piven event. I sincerely hope that nothing bad happens to Princess Pelosi while she’s getting her photo op on. She’ll get her justice before the Almighty, and she certainly doesn’t deserve any martyrdom.
The California Democrat will also meet with a group of children held at the South Texas Detention Facility.
“The humanitarian crisis unfolding across our nation’s southern border demands Congress come together and find thoughtful, compassionate and bipartisan solutions,” Pelosi said. “We must ensure our laws are fully enforced, so that due process is provided to unaccompanied children and the safety and well-being of unaccompanied children is protected. We must also work to address the root causes of the problem.”
I've been watching the events on the border, and thinking Cloward-Piven thoughts, and chastising myself for thinking that democrats could be evil enough to flood the country with illegal immigrants in hopes of making enough of them wards of the state/citizens to cement their demographic advantage with them forever. I will no long chastise myself:
Dems block GOP bills to verify status, block tax credits to illegal immigrants
Senate Democrats blocked Republicans on Thursday from passing two bills that would require companies to verify the legal status of people before they hire them, and stop the government from handing out child tax credits to illegal immigrants.American Born Workers Struggle To Compete With Immigrants
Sessions tried to get approval for the two bills after saying illegal immigration is swamping the U.S., which is leading to reduce wages for Americans and higher costs as these immigrants start improperly receiving federal tax benefits.
The Center for Immigration Studies released a study to mark the one-year anniversary of the passage of the Senate Gang of Eight immigration bill on Friday, discrediting the notion that adding millions more workers through comprehensive immigration reform is necessary due to a coming labor shortage.Rahall comment on coal miners stirs GOP ire
Analyzing statistics from the Census Bureau, the report found that native-born U.S. citizens have struggled to compete with both illegal and legal immigrants for more than a decade.
“The findings show that employment growth has been weak over the last 14 years and has not kept pace with population growth and new immigration,” the report said. “Among the working-age (16 to 65), what employment growth there has been has entirely gone to immigrants (legal and illegal).”
A comment Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., made to political blog Politico has sparked fierce backlash from conservative groups.His argument has a certain circularity to it; miners take drugs because they can't find work, and miners can't find work because they take drugs.
Rahall, speaking to reporter Erica Martinson for a series on how national policy issues are affecting 2014 midterm elections, said substance abuse is a big reason coal miners can’t find jobs in Southern West Virginia.
“Times are tough,” he told Martinson. “People turn to drugs — no question about it. Our coal companies can’t hire coal miners because they can’t pass a drug test.”
