Ready or not, here they come. Thanks to Joe Biden, America the Weary will soon open its doors to another 62,500 low-skilled foreigners from the Third World. The sovereign citizens in neighborhoods across our nation where these newcomers will be dumped will have no say in these decisions. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Open borders judges made sure that the wants and needs of ordinary Americans would be subordinated to those of the refugee resettlement racket. There is no recourse under U.S. law to reestablish local control of the process.

Instead, the United Nations, the U.S. State Department and their globalist partners in the “faith” community (who rake in billions of dollars in tax subsidies off the backs of refugees and at the expense of voiceless citizens) will dictate who gets in and who moves where. It will be mostly young low-skilled Americans forced to compete with the influx of 22,000 Africans, 6,000 East Asians, 4,000 Europeans and Central Asians, 5,000 Latin Americans and Caribbean nationals, 13,000 Near Easterners and South Asians, and another 12,500 refugees from unspecified countries. (Hint: Look for a “Green New Dealer” to ram a bunch of future Democratic-voting “climate refugees” into the mix.)

The numbers don’t lie. Replacement theory isn’t a theory. It’s a grim reality.

Reminder: Long-term unemployment for young Americans has remained more than double that of adults during the global pandemic chaos. Current Bureau of Labor Statistics show the unemployment rate at 10.3% among 20- to 24-year-olds and 13.3% among 18- to 19-year-olds (compared with the 5.3% unemployment among those 25 and older). Nearly a quarter of all unemployed Americans have been out of a job for over a year.

So, why is the importation of 62,500 refugees “justified by grave humanitarian concern” and “in the national interest” as Biden proclaimed Monday. Wasn’t this the same champion of the forgotten who decried the “worst pandemic in a century” and the “worst economic crisis since the Great Depression”? Wasn’t this the same savior who promised Americans “jobs, jobs, jobs” — especially for those with less than a college education?

The refugee resettlement racketeers have gaslit American citizens into believing that putting our own economic, cultural and demographic interests is un-American. In Biden’s refugee admissions announcement, he insisted that “it’s a statement about who we are, and who we want to be.” Subsidizing the permanent refugee pipeline of generations of welfare recipients and job-takers, we are brainwashed to believe, represents “American leadership and American values.”

ORDER IT NOW

This is self-defeating hogwash. What is “American” about subverting American control and bullying citizens into financially supporting waves of refugees competing with their own hard-hit progeny? According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the average estimated refugee’s lifetime fiscal cost, expressed as a net present value, is $60,000, with those entering as adults (ages 25 to 64) costing $133,000 each. Only one-third of those adult refugees have completed more than a sixth-grade education before landing in the U.S. They are granted immediate access to government welfare programs including Medicaid, housing, food stamps and cash assistance. Once they land (and the refugee resettlement contractors collect their paychecks), many of the dumpees often relocate to ethnic enclaves to join friends and family where they take low-wage, low-skilled jobs in manufacturing, meatpacking, retail and the trades — exactly the kind of jobs the Beltway politicians promise they are creating for Americans first.

If the swamp creatures were truly committed to protecting Americans while serving “humanitarian” interests, they’d spare us all the globalist expenses of virtue signaling and help refugees back in their home countries. CIS research director Steven Camarota concluded that for “what it costs to resettle one Middle Eastern refugee in the United States for five years, about 12 refugees can be helped in the Middle East for five years, or 61 refugees can be helped for one year.”

We have enough of a manufactured crisis here at home without throwing open the doors to the rest of the world’s wretched refuse. I can hear the cries of “nativist” ululating as I type — to which I say: You’re damned right. “Nativist” is simply the “America last” gaslighters’ euphemism for “America first.”

  1. It is obvious that Republicans are in favor of Biden’s plans. Of late, one cannot help but notice that Republican business owners are complaining that food stamps, unemployment benefits and other safety net programs are too generous and small business owners cannot fill minimum wage jobs. As those low wage jobs go unfilled, Biden is coming to the rescue with lots of new undocumented immigrants. We know they will fill minimum wage jobs and not complain–they may even work two or three such jobs. The cause of the undocumented immigrant problem is Republican small and medium sized business owners who hire them. If there were no jobs, they would not come.

    You are correct on all counts.

    The only thing that has repeatedly held back Democrat aspirations is the AOC flank of the party.

    With AOC dictating open borders / amnesty policy, she was like a college kid borrowing Uncle Bernie's Lincoln and immediately totaling it out a few blocks down the road. Her mass amnesty plans brought Bernie no new votes in the primary, but ruined his cred with the loyal following he already had.

    She has since borrowed Uncle Joe's Lexus, and totaled that too. The Democrats had to do little but act as populists to run the tables. The Republicans - who actually hit the self-destruct button that opened all the gates for this flood of cheap labor / illegal immigration at its origin - handed them an easy win by eagerly attacking the unemployed and calling them lazy welfare recipients during a shut down no one asked for..

    Its hard to establish who is most culpable,
    the party that cant take yes for an answer,
    or the party that can't say yes to those most in need.

  2. Thanks to Joe Biden, America the Weary will soon open its doors to another 62,500 low-skilled foreigners from the Third World. The sovereign citizens in neighborhoods across our nation where these newcomers will be dumped will have no say in these decisions.

    If the swamp creatures were truly committed to protecting Americans while serving “humanitarian” interests, they’d spare us all the globalist expenses of virtue signaling and help refugees back in their home countries.

    If we are honest with ourselves, this did not start with the Democrats, although they will eventually finish us off as a nation, with the tactic. In the upper South, it was a hallowed tradition to hold a discussion with teens as they neared voting age, explaining ‘why we never vote Republican’. I got this lecture from adults on both sides of my family, along with local family history of betrayals, murder and invasion.

    I always voted Republican anyway, since I had convinced myself that this betrayal was a long time ago, and I despised like Bill Clinton.

    Anyone who lived through the 90’s in any of the rust belt manufacturing cities can personally recall the impact of NAFTA outsourcing on family / friend’s, who were tossed out of work and left to find some way to financially survive.

    I remember my dad on unemployment for the first time in his life, and the Republican’s nonsense assurances at the time that we were not losing employment for Americans – everyone would simply soon have a high-wage, white-collar job while only the work that Americans did not want to do anyway was being sent to Mexico and China.

    Many of these American workers, betrayed by the corrupt ruling class in both parties, thought that the worst had hit them, but soon found that Republican ‘in-sourcing’ of foreign labor on a massive scale was completely overwhelming communities across the nation.

    In truth, it was the Republicans who opened the cheap labor floodgates for the payoff from the CoC, and they have never stopped – even under Trump, the H1b’s and work permits were handed out like candy to the donor class.

    In the end, it was the greed and duplicity of the opportunistic Republican managerial class who brought us to this point – much of the Democrat machinery did not board the bandwagon until the racial-ization of its platform into a grievance caucus, and by then, the damage was already long since irreparable.

    People who wish to take advantage of one another, or who literally hate, despise, or loath one another are not suitable for inclusion in a single government – which is the current state of affairs – and we are now casting about for some simple solution to the divisions of irreconcilable, alien peoples competing against one another in an economic plantation that once was a nation.

    Disagree.

    I do not believe there were ever any economic reasons for opening the borders.... I firmly believe that
    the main agenda is the replacement of white Christian people.....the "never again" program of organized jewry......that decided long ago they would never get kicked out again.....so the way to assure no more evictions is to destroy white people.

    This is normal. I know whenever I feel like a landlord is going to evict me.....my first thought is to exterminate the landlord.

    I agreed with you, and have my own memories and experiences of much of this, Mr. Wombat, but only until you got to "even under Trump". No, I don't worship the guy as our savior and, in fact, think he was a bumbling bullshitter for the most part. However, Trump brought many of these visa numbers WAY DOWN, steadily and particularly over the last couple of years. The "refugee" numbers especially were down from near 100,000 a year to 20,000 or so. (I gotta say +/- 20% on this, as I'm going completely by memory of VDare information here.)

    The problem was that Trump had no ability to make political strategy, so rather than getting any changes made into law, it was just bureaucratic diktat or E.O.s, or what-have-you. Every bit of it could be reversed the first day or month of the Bai Dien Administration, and it was.

  5. US immigration is simply neoliberalism. (as is off-shoring industry & jobs) It’s a free market in Labour — a free-for-all for business, that is.
    If you are a patriot you would likely define it as treason.
    And thanks Michelle for this — “If the swamp creatures were truly committed to protecting Americans while serving “humanitarian” interests, they’d spare us all the globalist expenses of virtue signaling and help refugees back in their home countries.”
    Indeed.
    Most people don’t want to leave home & family. Most or many do not want to immigrate.
    So, rather than exploit other countries, try helping them with win-win economic exchange….
    Fat chance. Neoliberalism is Imperialism & imperialism is in essence exploitation.
    The US is merely a large node in a tangle of global exploitation.
    As if US elites could give a tuppney-fuck for its own people or any people. There’s nearly 8 billion humans out there, of which perhaps only a few 1000 are indispensable (ie the 600 or so elite families who literally rule this world).

  6. How do the governors of Southern border states live with themselves? Protecting one’s people is the whole point of their existence. They should build barriers, post warning signs and proceed to shoot border crossers. When the choice for the invader is “tough it out in my corrupt shithole” or death, many will make the logical choice.

    Let fraudsident biden send federal stormtroopers to stop them. Not even he and all his (((fakenews))) minions can spin firing on the Border Patrol.

  7. Thank you for another good column, Mrs. Malkin. As John Derbyshire said he suspects, the latest immigration invasion threats down south may be just a distraction from all the again-increasing legal immigration threat.

    I am puzzled as to why there is no link in either the VDare post or in this Unz Review post of this column to the wonderful Ann Corcoran with her Refugee Resettlement Watch site. (VDare is nothing if not link-happy, so especially I was surprised there.) Now you all have it here, at least. Mrs. Corcoran has been following and documenting this “refugee” stupidity for many years now. Her site on some commercial “blogspot” or equivalent was shut down, so she has here own URL (the one I just linked to) now.

    Visit it, people, if you want to learn what a racket this whole thing is. It is shameful that the Lutherans and other supposed Christians are damning their own people to more miserable lives in order to make money and feel so, so virtuous. For whatever reason, logistical, I’m sure, these church people don’t put up these nice foreigners in their own homes. Maybe nobody thought of that … I dunno?…

    Thanks for the link to that site. Yes, I had heard that the churches were helping run these illegals into the country. Shame on all of them!

    These churches - all of them - are corrupt, just like the politicians, out for power. Always have been. It's fine to believe in God, but do not believe in organized religion.

    These churches are in league with the powers that control the money, enriching themselves while holding the peasants down. Look at the wealth, corruption and sexual deviancy in the Catholic Church!

    The politicians (both sides), corporations, NGO's, churches, Chambers of Commerce, bankers - all in league. Not one of them care about their fellow man.

    @Achmed E. Newman

    Many Lutherans and Episcopalians left the church when practicing gays and lesbians were approved to become clergy members. Obtaining money through refugee resettlement is a method used to replace the money no longer coming in through the collection plate. Decent Christians left years ago. Many churches are now nothing more than virtue signaling left wing social clubs. The Catholic Church has always welcomed Hispanics as the Catholic Church has a fair sized religious presence in those countries.

    I voted for Trump in his first campaign, enthusiastically, but this was before before Jared, before the market / derivatives bailout, before PPP looting on behalf of anyone who owns an LLC, before the endless strategic Fed pumping that was designed to send the markets methodically higher on completely artificial Fed interventions.

    What do the USCIS data actually say reference EAD (employment authorization) 'work permit' issuance to foreign nationals? -

    2017 - 1,134,293 initial employment authorizations - 74,514 initial EAD denials - 1,007,872 EAD renewals - 2,157,244 employment authorizations

    2018 - 984,537 initial employment authorizations - 93,129 initial EAD denials - 966,997 EAD renewals - 1,969,657 Million employment authorizations

    2019 - 841,921 initial employment authorizations - 130,253 initial EAD denials - 1,031,346 EAD renewals 1,888,395 Million total employment authorizations.

    ("In May 2019, Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan confirmed that agency officials were giving work permits to “100 percent” of adult border crossers arriving in the U.S. with children.")

    2020 - 893,916 initial employment authorizations - 893,916 intial EAD denials - 912,518 EAD renewals - 1,820,394 Million employment authorizations
    (2020 data does not appear to include final quarter of the year)

    There is some flux, however EAD remained near the '2 million' neighborhood across the Trump term. The Trump first year, with the highest level of work permit issuance could also capture actions already in the pipeline from the Obama admin, however that is a guess on my part.
    The Trump final year of 2020 appears to lack 4th quarter data, meaning it will almost certainly run significantly higher than USCIS reports -

    https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/reports/I-765_Application_for_Employment_FY03-20.pdf

    Notably, as relates to H-1b and related work permit categories -
    'You do not need to apply for an EAD if you have a nonimmigrant visa that authorizes you to work for a specific employer (for example, you have an H-1B, L-1B, O, or P visa).' https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/employment-authorization-document

    So,.. even these statistics fail to capture a very significant percentage of work permit categories allotted to foreign nationals entering the US during this period.

    I think that at this point, those paying any attention at all are aware that the last barrier to official malfeasance, the media, now acts almost entirely as an information gatekeeper, not an information illuminator. Relying on perceptions from media coverage, which is now structured to almost entirely 'sell' a perception as opposed to inform, is largely molding opinion instead of challenging the actions of those in power, or fact-checking their own reporting / narrative. You have to hunt your own statistics/conclusions, at this point.

    The reason I keep directing back to NAFTA, for instance, is that unless you remember where the con began, most people only see the present, and fail to connect the progression of events back to the source.

  11. The media isn’t even allowed to investigate what is going on in these camps. Is the democratic party a dictatorship with comrade Biden as the premiere??? Where is the phony so called opposition party known as the Republicans?

  12. Cheap Labor Uber Alles.

  13. It’s not about “labor.”

    If you think that…..you’re an idiot.

    If they really cared about labor they wouldn’t have aborted sixty million babies.

    The borders were opened by the nose…..because the nose wanted to make the western world
    more “user friendly” for their tribe……while totally wrecking all of Christendom.

    We already had plenty of cheap labor from blacks, veterans, the disabled, and teens. The single and ONLY area that actually needs mexican labor is agriculture….and the demand is seasonal.

The "refugee" numbers especially were down from near 100,000 a year to 20,000 or so. (I gotta say +/- 20% on this, as I'm going completely by memory of VDare information here.)

    The problem was that Trump had no ability to make political strategy, so rather than getting any changes made into law, it was just bureaucratic diktat or E.O.s, or what-have-you. Every bit of it could be reversed the first day or month of the Bai Dien Administration, and it was.

    I voted for Trump in his first campaign, enthusiastically, but this was before before Jared, before the market / derivatives bailout, before PPP looting on behalf of anyone who owns an LLC, before the endless strategic Fed pumping that was designed to send the markets methodically higher on completely artificial Fed interventions.

    What do the USCIS data actually say reference EAD (employment authorization) ‘work permit’ issuance to foreign nationals? –

    2017 – 1,134,293 initial employment authorizations – 74,514 initial EAD denials – 1,007,872 EAD renewals – 2,157,244 employment authorizations

    2018 – 984,537 initial employment authorizations – 93,129 initial EAD denials – 966,997 EAD renewals – 1,969,657 Million employment authorizations

    2019 – 841,921 initial employment authorizations – 130,253 initial EAD denials – 1,031,346 EAD renewals 1,888,395 Million total employment authorizations.

    (“In May 2019, Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan confirmed that agency officials were giving work permits to “100 percent” of adult border crossers arriving in the U.S. with children.”)

    2020 – 893,916 initial employment authorizations – 893,916 intial EAD denials – 912,518 EAD renewals – 1,820,394 Million employment authorizations
    (2020 data does not appear to include final quarter of the year)

    There is some flux, however EAD remained near the ‘2 million’ neighborhood across the Trump term. The Trump first year, with the highest level of work permit issuance could also capture actions already in the pipeline from the Obama admin, however that is a guess on my part.
    The Trump final year of 2020 appears to lack 4th quarter data, meaning it will almost certainly run significantly higher than USCIS reports –

    https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/reports/I-765_Application_for_Employment_FY03-20.pdf

    Notably, as relates to H-1b and related work permit categories –
    ‘You do not need to apply for an EAD if you have a nonimmigrant visa that authorizes you to work for a specific employer (for example, you have an H-1B, L-1B, O, or P visa).’ https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/employment-authorization-document

    So,.. even these statistics fail to capture a very significant percentage of work permit categories allotted to foreign nationals entering the US during this period.

    I think that at this point, those paying any attention at all are aware that the last barrier to official malfeasance, the media, now acts almost entirely as an information gatekeeper, not an information illuminator. Relying on perceptions from media coverage, which is now structured to almost entirely ‘sell’ a perception as opposed to inform, is largely molding opinion instead of challenging the actions of those in power, or fact-checking their own reporting / narrative. You have to hunt your own statistics/conclusions, at this point.

    The reason I keep directing back to NAFTA, for instance, is that unless you remember where the con began, most people only see the present, and fail to connect the progression of events back to the source.

    I agreed with you, and have my own memories and experiences of much of this, Mr. Wombat, but only until you got to "even under Trump".

    2020 USCIS figure should be 117,507 initial EAD denials – system would not let me edit.

  16. It’s every president’s legal, Constitutional responsibility to protect the borders from illegal everything.

    If a president does not do this (in this case as a matter of policy), and as few as ONE American is harmed or killed as the result, is said president guilty of a crime and can be arrested or SUED by the victim(s), families?

    Michelle, we met for a moment in North Palm Beach, Florida, just before you spoke at the anti-Big Tech rally.

    I gave you one of my Fake News Propaganda Bells, LLC, tm. Thanks for making such a scene with it. I was delighted.

    Connecticut (that’s right, I’m back in fascist land) 🙁
