My alerts have been filled to overflowing with the good news Open Borders advocates have been waiting for.
The dark days are over, the sun is shining, Joe has been installed, the borders will open and soon the masses who will “enrich the fabric” and “enhance the American mosaic” in your (racist) towns and cities will be on the way.
Trump’s efforts to keep us safe, keep Americans in their jobs and prevent more cases of the costly Chinese virus entering the US are out the window.
And, move over American workers the Chamber of Commerce is jumping for joy as an influx of New Americans want your jobs!
They will work for less, complain less, and vote for socialist Democrats!
U.S. Chamber to Joe Biden: You Can Help Americans by Importing Foreign Workers
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce says its corporate members can create jobs for Americans if President Joe Biden’s amnesty and migration bill provides them with “the world’s most talented and industrious people.”
The chamber made the January 20 press statement as it applauded Biden’s draft “U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021” that would dramatically accelerate the inflow of foreign workers into Americans’ blue-collar and white-collar jobs.
If you are still living back in the day when big business supported Republicans, wake up.
The party of corporate CEOs is the Democrat party!
In the 2020 election, the U.S. Chamber backed numerous Democratic candidates, largely because the Democrats promised to inflate the labor supply with cheap foreign workers.

Now here is Time magazine heavily quoting from Islamic supremacist Linda Sarsour.
Activists Praise Biden’s Reversal of Trump-Era ‘Discriminatory’ Travel Ban. But the Work Isn’t Over Yet
It isn’t enough to lift the ban, they want a law banning any future bans.
Even after Biden’s reversal, advocacy groups are continuing to push for congressional action to ensure no future president can revive the ban.
The most recent version of Trump’s ban included more countries than the original, and drew scrutiny for its inclusion of six African countries, leading critics to call it the “Muslim and African ban.” It placed varying degrees of restrictions on U.S. visas for citizens from a large group of countries, including Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, North Korea, Nigeria, Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Sudan and Tanzania.
More than 42,000 people have been unable to enter the U.S. because of the travel restrictions since 2017, according to the Brennan Center for Justice’s analysis of state department data.
“The executive order is just the first step,” she [Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American activist and executive director of MPower Change, a Muslim grassroots movement] says. “It’s the intention to make a wrong right. But there’s also work that comes with that.”
In order to ensure no president has the power to enact such sweeping restrictions again, they are continuing to pressure Congress to pass the No Ban Act.
The law would limit executive authority to prevent any future presidents from issuing similar bans. Such restrictions would only be allowed to apply to cases in which the Secretary of State has identified particular circumstances and credible facts that justify exclusion.
The bill passed the House last July but then stalled in the Senate. With Democrats recently taking control of both chambers, the measure is more likely to be successful.
The No Ban Act is part of a sweeping immigration bill—which Biden sent to Congress Wednesday—that also includes creating pathways to citizenship for undocumented people, cracking down on family separation and providing new funding intended to help immigrants and refugees integrate into the U.S.
“The rescinding of the Muslim ban is temporary and it’s based on the philosophy, the ideology of the current president,” Sarsour says. “We need the No Ban Act because we need this to be on the record forever because we do not know what’s going to happen in 2024 or 2028.”
And, here is one more, writer Joshua Cohen at a Jesuit publication manages to work in all the usual platitudes on the subject of refugees.
But, my main reason for posting this (besides laughing at his jargon-filled piece) is that he flat out lies and no one but me will call him on it. His lie is featured in a pull quote:
What the hell! Can’t these ‘journalists’ do some research? I showed you two days ago the refugee admissions numbers at a State Department data base going back to 1975. (While you are there, look at St. Obama’s numbers that never reached 100,000, while Biden has promised 125,000!).
In 2020, 11,814 refugees were admitted and that doesn’t include the scores of other special refugees from Afghanistan.
But, why muddy-up a good piece of propaganda with the facts!
From America The Jesuit Review:
After four years of Trump, it’s time to reset the U.S. refugee policy
LOL! Look at this one section of Cohen’s piece:
Refugee resettlement in the United States should not be a conservative or liberal issue. At its core, it is a humanitarian issue, and one that reflects our aspirations to be a compassionate and generous people. Most Americans have immigrant roots, and many can trace their family histories to include refugees. These refugees have built new lives here and enriched the fabric of their communities. In recent years, they have included Bosnian and Somali refugees who have further enhanced the American mosaic.
As an affluent nation, the United States has a moral duty to assist people in desperate situations. Closing doors to those who have suffered unthinkable horrors demonstrates fear and weakness.
