Trump: No More Welfare for Illegals / Cortez Rips Capitalism

Democrats fear president Trump because he tells truths that have not been spoken before. For instance he is publicly contradicting the narrative that illegal immigration is all good for America.

By fighting for The Wall on the Mexican border Trump is making more and more Americans aware of the true nature of illegal immigration with criminals, drugs and diseases flooding into our country. Democrats don’t want us to think about those issues.

The president went a step further recently. Breitbart News reported:

President Donald Trump, in an exclusive Oval Office interview with Breitbart News on Monday afternoon, said he does not want immigrants coming to the United States to be dependent on welfare programs.

“I don’t want to have anyone coming in that’s on welfare,” Trump told Breitbart News in the more-than-40-minute interview in the Oval Office on Monday afternoon. “We have a problem, because we have politicians that are not strong, or they have bad intentions, or they want to get votes, because they think if (illegal immigrants) come in they’re going to vote Democrat, you know, for the most part.”

… “But I don’t like the idea of people coming in and going on welfare for 50 years, and that’s what they want to be able to do—and it’s no good.”

Amen. No major politician has been so bold before. Congratulations to president Trump. And he is absolutely correct. Breitbart continued:

Trump’s answer came in response to Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alexander Marlow citing a statistic from a report the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) published in December that over 60 percent of non-citizen families entering the United States end up on welfare. The report found that 63 percent of non-citizen households end up on welfare, whereas just 35 percent of native-born American households end up on welfare—a major disparity.

The report also shows that in non-citizen households with children, welfare usage skyrockets to 79.6 percent.

Wow. Once you see the actual numbers, it is shocking. Because we have been led to believe that all illegal immigrants contribute to our country, work hard, don’t take anything away from us, and make us better. That is false.

So how do illegal aliens get welfare?

Answer: They are given it by the Welfare State built by the Democrat party over the last century.

Meanwhile The Washington Times reported in August 2017:

A stunning 22 percent of inmates in the federal prison population are immigrants who have either already been deemed to be in the country illegally or who the government is looking to put in deportation proceedings, the administration said Tuesday.

President Trump requested the numbers as part of his initial immigration executive orders.
The 22 percent is much higher than the population of foreign-born in the U.S. as a whole, which is about 13.5 percent.

All told, the government counted more than 42,000 aliens in federal prisons as of June 24.

About 47 percent already face final deportation orders, making them illegal immigrants, and 3 percent are currently in immigration courts facing deportation proceedings.

Shocking numbers… worked with Mexican illegal immigrants in 1985 when I picked pears at a farm in Oregon for several months. They were humble, hard-working people. I remember that they sent large amounts of money back to Mexico from their paychecks.

But that was a different era when illegal immigrants were a vastly smaller part of the population – about 3 million. Today there are estimated to be as many as 25 million illegals in the US and many of them don’t work but they sure commit lots of crime (as above, or like MS-13 members) and they get government handouts to fund their families here and in their home countries.

According to one recent report, up to 45% of illegals come here not by walking over the Mexican border but by flying in from all over the world on visitor visas and staying, secure in knowing that their chances of being caught are slim to none. Thus for the cost of an airplane ticket, and almost no effort, they get a free pass to America.

But then you might wonder where they get thousands of dollars for the airline ticket, for instance if they live in impoverished Pakistan.

And the answer is that they often get it from relatives who come to the US and who get on welfare. The relatives then send them money that they get from US taxpayers. It is an insidious system.

Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango flew in from Africa in 2000 on a visa, defied a 2004 deportation order and died in Boston in 2014 while living in public housing and on the public dole. Breitbart News continued:

Trump added that while it is his belief that some industries need more workers brought in in various capacities, the Democrats and the left are pushing to bring anyone and everyone into the country regardless of the consequences.

“They’ll take anybody into this country and we’re not allowing it, but because of the success of the country economically, some people say—I blame myself, but that’s a good blame not a bad blame—but because of the country’s success and you need workers here,” Trump said. “You do need workers. You have homes in Houston, and they can’t get people to build the homes—and lots of other places. But because of what’s happened, and because of the people coming up, they want them to come in and they don’t care how they come in.”

There are plenty of workers in the US who could be doing construction but won’t like lazy black males who have been shunning work and personal responsibility – like running away from the children that they have fathered – by the millions since they got on the dole in big numbers starting in the 1960s.

Crazy Cortez Rips Capitalism

Radical Democrat radical congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is just a puppet figure for a left-wing cabal that includes sleazy globalists like currency manipulator George Soros. She just says what they tell her to say.

PJ Media recently reported about Cortez:

At an appearance before an enthusiastic crowd at (the South by Southwest Festival in Texas), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez referred to capitalism as “irredeemable” …

“Capitalism is an ideology of capital –- the most important thing is the concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit,” Ocasio-Cortez said. And that comes at any cost to people and to the environment, she said, “so to me capitalism is irredeemable.”

… “we’re reckoning with the consequences of putting profit above everything else in society. And what that means is people can’t afford to live. For me, it’s a question of priorities and right now I don’t think our model is sustainable.”

She conveniently ignores the mass misery of socialism/communism in places like North Korea, Venezuela and Cuba and in the past in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. That misery is worse than poverty in America where poor people can have middle-class standards of living (food, clothing, nice apartments, medical care, nice cars, cable TV, pets, electric scooters, etc.) as has personally witnessed many times.

Cortez also conveniently ignores the fact that Americans have been migrating over the last 50 years by the tens of millions OUT OF liberal states like California, New York, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Vermont and running at top speed INTO low-tax, low-regulation states like Texas, Georgia and Florida. Even Cortez’ own mother moved to Florida to escape New York taxes. Cortez added:

Instead of conservative politicians scaring people that socialism means the government is going to take over their business, “we should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government,” she said.

And she is absolutely correct in her own backhanded way – left-wing companies like Google and Facebook and media companies like CNN, The New York Times and NBC control much of what is said and seen in America and they are colluding closely with Obama and the Democrats. The Hill website reported:

Google and its affiliates have had at least 427 meetings at the White House during President Obama’s tenure, according data from the Campaign for Accountability and The Intercept (website).

The data, gleaned from White House meeting logs, showed that in all, 169 Google employees have met in the White House with 182 government officials. Not surprisingly, Google’s head of public policy, Johanna Shelton, had the most White House meetings of any Google employee, with 128.

Meanwhile General Motors is in the process of laying off 15,000 workers after Obama bailed out GM in 2009 with tens of billions of taxpayer dollars.

The list of business/White House/Democrat collusion goes on and on. Cortez than said about political ‘moderates’:

“Moderate is not a stance. It’s just an attitude towards life … We’ve become so cynical, … we view cynicism as an intellectually superior attitude, and we view ambition as youthful naivete when … the greatest things we have ever accomplished as a society have been ambitious acts of visions…”

Yes, ambitious acts like building a border wall. She is correct. Let’s build The Wall. It is Trump’s bold vision.

Ironically the only “moderates” left in America anymore are Republicans. It is hard to say what she is complaining about. The Democrat party is either radical like Pelosi or further to the radical left like Cortez. PJ Media reported:

A recent Harris Poll found 73% of millennials and Gen Z favor socialized medicine with almost 50% preferring to live in a socialist country. With those age groups making up 37% of the electorate in 2020, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s popularity and her dangerous ideas could play a big role in the election.

This is true. But then again, young people are always attracted to socialism because they have been told about it in glowing and abstract terms by their college professors and their uninformed friends, but have never experienced it, studied it or seen the other side of it as taxpayers.

Or they don’t understand how our economy works, i.e., when we cut taxes, it creates jobs and wealth and increases revenue to the government and reduces government dependency, as is happening under Trump.

When president Ronald Reagan cut taxes on the wealthiest Americans by 60% revenues to the federal treasury over the next 7 years actually increased by 91%. The Reagan economic boom continued for 25 years, from 1983 to 2008.

Yet when president George HW Bush signed into law a steep increase in taxes on luxury yachts in 1990, the yacht-building industry collapsed and thousands were thrown out of work.

Pelosi Cools on Impeachment

After seeing the Democrats’ fake Russia collusion story melt like a snowbank under the Spring sun, House speaker Nancy Pelosi has decided that perhaps impeaching president Trump is not such a great idea. The Daily Caller reported:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi expressed opposition to filing articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Monday claiming that he is not worth the effort, despite being unfit to hold the office.

“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before,” Pelosi said while being interviewed by The Washington Post. “But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”

“And he’s just not worth it,” she continued.

This comes after hints have been dropped for weeks in the Fake News media that the Mueller investigation has turned up nothing on collusion between president Trump and the Russians and that the public had better prepare for that.

So it is great to watch Pelosi try to wriggle out of this one.

Another Corrupt Democrat

Here is a final word about yet another corrupt Democrat. They should have their own Hall of Fame. I saw his name mentioned in a video and looked him up. Wikipedia reports:

Jacob Franklin Butcher (May 8, 1936 – July 19, 2017) was an American banker and politician. He built a financial empire in East Tennessee, was the Democratic Party nominee for governor of Tennessee in 1978. He was also the primary promoter of the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee and lost his business and his personal fortune after he was found to have engaged in bank fraud.

Here is one more. Fox News reported:

An embattled Democratic mayor from Massachusetts was re-elected on Tuesday, the same night that voters recalled him from duty amid federal indictments.

Mayor Jasiel Correia, 27, faced a recall vote after refusing to step down last year when he was charged with filing false tax returns and stealing $231,447 from investors to fund a lavish lifestyle.

The recall ballot contained two questions: whether Correia should be recalled and who among five candidates, including the embattled Democrat, should become the new mayor of Fall River. Voters were able to choose any mayoral candidate regardless of how they voted on the recall question.

Correia was recalled with 61 percent of the vote on the first question, WPRI-TV of Providence reported, citing uncertified results. But 35 percent of voters then chose to re-elect Correia on the second question, with the incumbent narrowly beating out runner-up Paul Coogan by about 1 percent, the station reported.
