The Politics Behind The Immigration Reform Movement
by Bob Livingston / Personal Liberty Digest
To the average person, the political class can be a conundrum. How, most people will ask, can a politician say during election time he is for or against a particular thing or policy in an effort to gain favorability among the electorate and then, once he’s elected, do an about-face and say or do the exact opposite? The answer is very simple. Politicians — with few exceptions — owe their existence to the moneyed elites. You cannot try to rationalize their actions with logical or moral behavioral standards. Those rules do not apply to them.
Members of the political class are often treated as if they have achieved some special standing based on the positions they hold. But remember, they hold their elected positions solely because they are good at closing a sale, have a charming smile and can turn a phrase. They are most often gregarious and outgoing and charming. They do not necessarily have greater than average intelligence (see Joe Biden), but they are good liars because they are emotionally shallow, have an inflated sense of self-worth, are egotistical and lack empathy. In short, most of them are psychopaths lacking any morality whatsoever.
The elites bankroll their campaigns and promise them lucrative seats on boards of major corporations once they have used up their political capital. In return, the elected class must sell their souls to the moneyed elites and promise to do their bidding when it’s time to pass new laws or begin new programs. They happily do this because power and prestige are their primary motivators.
The elected class lose their political capital only when they grow old and senile or transgress the bounds of normal decorum (i.e, get caught in a sexual, financial or political scandal) so egregiously that they become toxic or when the electorate becomes so agitated by their continued lies and turnabouts that they come out en masse to vote against them. Oftentimes, even this is overcome through voter fraud and manipulation; but occasionally the bums are thrown out on their collective ears. They then move on to their job-in-waiting and receive six- and seven-figure salaries to continue hobnobbing with their old buddies and to pass around more political graft in exchange for legislation that benefits the companies they represent.
The immigration reform movement is case in point. Notice there is a bipartisan movement to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. You might ask yourself why this is. Why would a gang of eight Senators — and “gang” is the operative word — with supposedly disparate political philosophies band together to craft a bill that will destroy America and then go on record as trying to get their 92 cohorts to pass it? Why would they also try to sell it to the American people as being beneficial to the country when common sense tells you that is not so?
The changing demographic resulting from giving voting rights to millions (some same say as few as 10 million to as many as 30 million) of collectivist-minded individuals — most of them from Third World countries and who align with the Democrat Party’s stated socialist, wealth-redistributionist policies — will destroy the Republican Party’s chances of winning national elections for decades. It will also be the final nail in the coffin of republicanism and will cement socialist/fascism as America’s future. So why would Republicans agree to such a thing?
The answer is the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and businesses in manufacturing, construction and food service and their lobbying organizations. They are backing this bill because it will provide for businesses millions of legitimate workers content with slave wages. And as Pat Buchanan points out: “U.S. corporations and agribusiness also want the right to import foreign workers. And under this new immigration bill, H1-B visas for highly skilled engineers and computer programmers will double to 110,000 a year, and the cap can rise to 180,000. Visas for H-2A agricultural workers will go to 337,000 over three years.”
In addition to gaining millions of new prospective Democrat voters, Democrats support granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens because the labor unions do. Labor unions, the Democrat Party’s sugar daddy, have seen their memberships decline and are desperate to find more dues-paying workers to enslave. More dues is more money to prop up the cushy lifestyles of the union’s leadership and to use to keep their tickets to the White House policy-making sessions.
Obama has turned immigration policy over to the National Council of La Raza. His director of the Domestic Policy Council and face of his immigration policy is Cecilia Muñoz, a former lobbyist for La Raza. And according to Chris Crane, the head of the National ICE Council, the union representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, LaRaza agents are embedded in ICE and setting their policies, many of which are now prohibiting them from doing their jobs. The immigration bill also gives unprecedented authority to the Department of Homeland Security Director, Janet Napolitano. For his part, Obama believes ICE agents are terrorists.
La Raza is an Hispanic separatist/supremacist organization that has advocated for blanket amnesty, open borders and the establishment of a separate area or State in the southwest populated solely of Latinos and free of Caucasians. The motto for La Raza, Spanish for “The Race,” is “For the Race, everything, outside the Race… Nothing!”
According to the Heritage Foundation, granting amnesty — which is the primary purpose of the bill, despite protests to the contrary — to the estimated 11 million illegal aliens will cost taxpayers at least $6.3 trillion.
Overall, the immigration bill accomplishes a much larger goal: the de facto elimination of the southern boundary, a goal of the globalists. The leaders of the United States, Canada and Mexico have been working toward eliminating North American borders for several years.
This is but one step toward one-world governance, a major goal of the elite world power brokers.
Once again, you might ask why American politicians would support such a thing. They all believe they are entitled to and destined for prime seats in the halls of power in the new world order. They are perfectly content with that to the detriment of their own country and its Constitution, which they swore to uphold.
