His topic of course is international migration. Schwartz for those who don’t know is the Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration and was appointed to that position by President Obama. He oversees the Refugee Resettlement Program and is, as we have noted before, one of the many George Soros puppets spread throughout the government. See here, here, and here.
Coincidentally last night, Glenn Beck began his series of investigative reports on George Soros. See here Beck’s initial research on the man he calls the puppet master with the implication that Soros also controls the Obama Presidency.
Albeit only a tiny portion of the strategy, the refugee program is an ideal place from which to work on a one-world government scheme all the while hiding behind a humanitarian smoke screen. [Note to readers, I am not talking about the lower level staff people and volunteers who are motivated by a wish to help the less fortunate of the world. I am talking about the driving force behind leaders like Soros and Schwartz.]
So here is Schwartz’s speech on international migration on Monday entitled, ‘Respecting the Dignity and Human Rights of People on the Move: International Migration Policy for the 21st Century.’ I probably could find something to say about every line, but here are a few points that jumped out.
Just for a feel of what is to come, here is an opening paragraph:
The starting points for a discussion of common principles and policies are our own history, perspectives and posture. Migration has played – and continues to play — a critical role in our national experience. Of more than 200 million people who are outside the country of their birth today, one in five resides in the United States. President Obama has said that “the steady stream of hardworking and talented people” who have immigrated to the United States over the years “has made the United States the engine of the global economy and a beacon of hope around the world.” And this perspective is hardly unique among our political leaders, past and present. Former President George W. Bush expressed a similar view, when he said that “[e]very generation of immigrants has reaffirmed the wisdom of remaining open to the talents and dreams of the world,” and added that “[o]ne of the primary reasons America became a great power in the 20th century is because we welcomed the talent and the character and the patriotism of immigrant families.”
Did you happen to hear George Bush on Rush Limbaugh yesterday? Rush asked what he was thinking to back that Amnesty bill in 2008. Former President Bush said he was persuaded that we couldn’t economically advance without a ready supply of cheap immigrant labor. He probably didn’t say cheap but that is what he meant! So much for humanitarianism.
In 2000, immigrant business owners generated an estimated $67 billion of the $577 billion in U.S. business income.
I laughed, do you think he means those immigrant run convenience stores doing the food stamp scams I’ve been writing about (like the one this morning)? Or how about those immigrant run home health care businesses that have been ripping off medicare and medicaid?
Immigration has also helped the United States avoid many of the very troubling demographic trends that bedevil other industrialized countries less hospitable to immigrants. As populations age, birth rates decline and the revenue streams needed to sustain social security programs shrink, new entrants and their families have played a critical role in helping the United States to sustain our capacity to maintain social programs.
Sustain our capacity to maintain social programs! What is he talking about? He thinks that immigrants add to social programs when leading economists believe that new immigrants take more from welfare programs then they return to the economy. Looks like its the redistribution of wealth that appeals to Schwartz.
And speaking of redistributing wealth, Schwartz actually believes that the millions of dollars of remittances immigrants send out of the US each year is a positive thing:
Our immigration policies have also had financial benefits to communities around the world, even as they have bound us more closely to those communities. In 2008, immigrant remittances from the United States amounted to $96.8 billion, representing nearly 30% of the total $336 billion in remittances worldwide.
I’m too bored with Schwartz of the silver tongue to go on, but you get the drift. Read the speech.
