The LA Times posted a piece yesterday entitled:
Where do Democratic presidential candidates stand on immigration policy?
But strangely it only reports the number of refugees each candidate wants per year for a couple of the candidates. Why the silence on some others when the numbers are available?
Remember that President Trump has the level set at 18,000 (under the Refugee Act of 1980, the President sets the ceiling/cap each fiscal year).
The Dems want to change that and have Congress set a minimum ceiling of 95,000. If the Dems win the White House, and hold the House, there is an excellent chance that will happen.
The LA Times lists numbers for only Biden and Warren:
Grandpappy of the US Refugee Admissions Program, Joe Biden: 125,000
Elizabeth Warren: 175,000
We know that Michael Bloomberg is at 125,000.
Amy Klobuchar is floating 110,000.
Tom Steyer also has not given a number that I can find but would welcome climate refugees in the mix.
I find it incredible that the Democrats want to inject hundreds of thousands of competitors into the job market who will drive down wages for American workers. Don’t African Americans and other minorities get that?
