    GOP Legislators Grab More Cheap Labor, Give Democrats Policy Wins

    GOP Legislators Grab More Cheap Labor, Give Democrats Policy Wins

    GOP legislators won some extra cheap labor for their donors while letting Democrats insert many anti-wall, pro-migration and anti-enforcement policy riders into the 2019 border spending package.


    “They sold out the President and their own voters because the President won’t ever get the 55 miles [of border fence] he wanted,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies.


    Trump “was willing to play ball with Congress and to take less than his full demand [of $5.7 billion], but even on that, they screwed him. The broader public that wants the border enforced also got the shaft in this bill,” he said.


    “I don’t think it is because of malice on the part of Republicans,” said Krikorian. “They were duped, they were distracted by [the offer of more] H-2B visa[s] which is what they care about, and by being able to say there is some money for the fence, even if it will never be built,” he said.


    The pending bill is being rushed through Congress by GOP and Democratic leaders, but it is being opposed by pro-American groups, including the Federation for Amerian Immigration Reform, ALIPAC, and the small-government Club for Growth.

    There's no coming back from this. No "emergency" or presidential powers will allow him to build the wall, ever, after he signs this bill. Trump has just agreed to fully open borders.

    The GOP legislators were duped by Democrats because they wanted to be duped, Krikorian said, adding:

    They fooled themselves because they said “We’ve got money for 55 miles of wall, and all the rest are just details and we can’t be bothered with that.” … They aren’t interested enough in the details of enforcement to know what [the Democrats were] up to. They just don’t think it is important and they did not focus on it.

    The business-first Republicans “keep stepping on rakes and they are surprised every time it happens,” he said. “They will pay a price,” he added.


    The Republicans on the 17-member panel include Alabama Republican Sen. Richard Shelby, West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven, Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, Texas Rep. Kay Granger, Tennesee Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, Georgia Rep. Tom Graves, and Mississippi Rep. Steven Palazzo. Most of them are business-first Republicans who normally defer to business claims about claimed shortages of workers.

    On Tuesday, Shelby touted the pending bill to Trump, who announced via tweet:
    Was just presented the concept and parameters of the Border Security Deal by hard working Senator Richard Shelby. Looking over all aspects knowing that this will be hooked up with lots of money from other sources….
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2019

    Trump did not say if Shelby told him about the paragraph which gives Texas Democrats a veto on the $1.4 billion on wall spending until September 2019.


    The cheap labor H-2B expansion sought by Republicans was added in the last ten pages of the 1,169-page border security bill, and it pressures the Department of Homeland Security to raise the annual inflow of cheap H-2B workers, which are used to cut pay to seasonal and full-time employees by the owners of resorts, hotels, landscapers, and forestry companies.


    The GOP’s H-2B gain said:

    Notwithstanding the numerical limitation set forth in section 214(g)(1)(B) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act (8 U.S.C. 1184)g)(1)(B)), the Secretary of Homeland Security …may increase the total number of aliens who receive a visa under section 101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b).

    The business groups pushed hard for the cheap labor because they are being forced to raise wages to Americans amid Trump’s booming economy and his “Hire American” low immigration policy. In 2013, nationwide wages rose by three percent. Wage raises were low in areas with lots of migrant workers but were higher in areas with fewer migrants. For example, wages rose in the Minnesota region by 5.2 percent.

    Conference Report to H.J. Res. 31 would nearly double the available FY 2019 H-2B low-skill visas. Wages in H-2B industries have only barely begun to increase after many years of stagnation. Americans need jobs and a raise!

    In 2017 and 2018, similar language caused the Department of Homeland Security to add 15,000 extra H-2B work visas.


    Republicans have worked with Democrats and business allies to import a resident population of roughly three million cheap visa workers. Roughly 1.5 million of the visa workers work in white-collar jobs sought by U.S college graduates. Those 1.5 million visa workers will accept less pay than U.S. workers, partly because they hope to get a deferred bonus of green cards from the U.S. government.

    Sen Mitch McConnell just announced @realDonaldTrump plans to sign the nightmarish budget deal Amnesty bill and then declare a state of National Emergency probably because Trump's own voters are going to politically riot over #Trump's betrayal + our taxation without representation

    — William Gheen (@ALIPAC) February 14, 2019

    Democrats approved the H-2B payroll cut to smooth the closed-door negotiations, Krikorian said.


    The Democratic wins in the 2019 spending package include a de-facto amnesty for migrants who say they will “sponsor” the teenagers and children who are being smuggled to the U.S. border by cartel-backed coyotes. That section of the law creates a legal reward for Central American illegals who smuggle their own children into the United States.

    "If this bill is enacted, expect the largest surge of unaccompanied minors this country has ever seen. If this bill is passed by Congress, President Trump must veto it." – Dan Stein, president of FAIR. https://t.co/6GEW7xAMWQ
    — FAIR (@FAIRImmigration) February 14, 2019

    The draft also gives Texas city officials a de facto veto on the construction of Trump’s border wall until at least September 2019. Krikorian said:

    Extra fencing is only in South Texas and the local governments — which are monolithically Democratic — have a veto over any fencing that is built, so there won’t be any fencing that is built. The claimed 55 miles is a fake — there won’t be anything built because the local government will veto construction. If this goes through, it will be the starting point for the next year’s budget bill, and the Democrats will argue that [the local government veto] has to stay in place.


    The Democratic wins also deliver hundreds of millions in spending to encourage migrants to cross the border, plus rules which constrict and stigmatize ICE enforcement.

    The 2019 DHS spending bill provides $1.4 billion for the border wall – and also encourages migrants by promising aid, busses & legal advice/shields, plus favorable future media coverage & Dem cheerleading. Overall, GOP gains on $ and Dems gain on policies https://t.co/rxFzl8Fas0

    — Neil Munro (@NeilMunroDC) February 14, 2019

    In contrast, “there are no policy wins for people who are concerned about controlling the border,” said Krikorian. “None.”


    There is no evidence, Krikorian added, that GOP staff experts on immigration were allowed to advise the GOP members of the spending panel.



    Democrats win these closed-door immigration fights because they really want to expand immigration, while the business-first Republicans really want to aid donors and are not interested in developing an immigraiton policy which helps ordinary Americans, he said, adding:

    The Democrats want to maximize the number of Central Americans who can move to the United States … They do not think the numerical caps in the [immigration] law should apply to people in Central America, They will do whatever it takes to enable every Central American who wants to move here. [They see] this as payback for the civil war in Central America, that we ‘re obliged to every Central American who want to move here because we funded the contras, the anti-communists in El Salvador and Guatemala. In other words, they think those people have a right to move here.

    Gallup reported in February 2019 that five million Central Americans want to move to the United States in 2019.

    The 2019 border security bill gives Trump & GOP an apparent win on the border wall $ — but it also chokes ICE enforcement with a wide variety of curbs, rules and exemptions while it also encourages offers of migration with offers of aid and lawyers. https://t.co/DfZZJE3SwN

    The American people are again betrayed by Congress and a president. From 1986 forward, all we have gotten is more amnesty and increased immigration in general. We never see real interior enforcement or have secure borders. Cartels, smugglers, whoever can cross the border can still cross and continue to cross. Send for a child and you may get immunity.

    On Laura Ingraham's (Ingraham Angle - FOX News) show last evening, it was mentioned the possibility of 30,000 being encouraged to caravan our way, including Cubans, those from Venezuela, others. What is seriously stopping anyone? All come.
