Sens. David Perdue (R-GA) and Tom Cotton (R-AR), with White House adviser dead-eyed dick Stephen ‘American Carnage’ Miller, have a plan for fixin’ up America’s immigration system: stop immigrants from bringing their families with them, and only let in people with skills and who speak English good, you morans!
The MAGA mouth-breathers love it! Let’s see what Miller says about it, and maybe we can figure out what they love so hard about it:
As a result of [current] policy, we’ve seen significant reductions in wages for blue collar workers, massive displacement of African American and Hispanic workers, as well as displacement of immigrant workers from previous years who often times compete directly against new arrivals who are paid even less. So its a policy that has actually exacerbated wealth inequality in the country in a pretty significant way. So you’ve seen over time, as a result of this historic flow of unskilled immigration, a shift in wealth from the working class to wealthier corporations and businesses and its been very unfair for American workers, especially for immigrant workers, African American workers and Hispanic workers and blue collar workers in general across the country.
At the same time, it’s cost taxpayers enormously because roughly half of immigrant-headed households in the United States receive some type of welfare benefit.
American Carnage Miller said that it is immigrants who are causing wealth inequality in this country. Now Possum Hollar probably doesn’t care about the people of color part, but damn! One of them pointy-heads in the Swamp done unnerstands us!
So, according to the GOP, the poverty in the Rust Belt has nothing to do with corporate greed (or racism), it’s because of them swarthy immigrants. Not only that, them immigrants is mooching our welfare Ameros that should be going to buy everyone in Possum Hollar a Bud in one of them longnecks!
But here’s the good news:
It has zero chance of making it through Congress.
Democrats are not going to support it, and that means The New Confederacy has a margin of losing two GOP Senators to stop this thing deader than Mike Grassley’s deer.
And as we saw in the South when they got rid of immigrant farm workers, their crops rotted in the field (weird how no white people took those jobs, huh?), and so it would be a YUGE mistake for the economies of Big Ag states, which oddly happen to be red. What a coinky-dink!
Bidnesses in those red states would not like to see their supply of cheap labor cut off, and one can guess that they would be willing to spend Ameros to defeat Wingnuttia for raising their costs. Two GOP Senators, remember? There will be more than that voting against this.
Comrade Preznint Stupid might not know/care that the bill has no chance of becoming law. He will rant about it at his Leni Riefenstahl-style Triumph of the Will and Der Sieg des Glaubens rallies, and blame Congress for not passing it.
And he will hire some more immigrant workers (bed makers and bed soilers?) at Mar-a-Lago.
