Leaked Dem memo: DACA ‘critical’ to ‘future electoral success’

 Quote:
The Democrat-supporting Center for American Progress Action Fund (CAPAF) admitted in a leaked memo that passage of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program – that would protect nearly 800,000 illegal aliens from deportation and grant them amnesty – is a key ingredient in the Democratic Party’s future election success.

“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” the CAPAF memo reads. “Donald Trump and the Republican Party continue to jeopardize the futures of millions of Dreamers and their families and throw up roadblocks to meaningful legislative reform, and it is up to Democrats to stand up for them.”


DEMS USING ILLEGALS TO GAIN POLITICAL POWER?

Former Hillary Clinton official Jennifer Palmieri co-authored the document issued to Democrats at a time when President Donald Trump is mulling over what left-inspired immigration policies he must consider in order to fund his border wall spanning the United-States’ southern border with Mexico.


“The leaked memo comes as the Trump administration has endorsed a DACA amnesty plan that trades legalizing the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens in exchange for mandatory E-Verify, which bars employers from hiring illegal aliens, ending chain migration, where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. with them, ending the Diversity Visa Lottery program, which randomly imports 50,000 foreign nationals a year, and authorizing the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border,” Breitbart reports.

In the memo, Palmieri blames Trump for trying to enforce U.S. law by deporting immigrants who remain in the country illegally, and she is witnessed playing the race card in an attempt to turn the immigration debate into a civil rights issue.

“As with all of the chaos in 2017, Donald Trump created this problem – it was entirely within his power to leave DACA intact,” she asserted. “If a legal challenge to the program had been brought, he could have allowed it to be addressed by the courts. The current crisis could have been averted. Instead, Trump seized an opportunity to play to the racists in his base by proactively and abruptly ending the program.”

The liberal group is urging Democrats to not give up any ground – and not concede to fund Trump’s border wall – and fully push for the continuation of former President Barack Obama’s left-leaning DACA program that is the hallmark of amnesty activists’ political agenda.

“Now, Trump and Republicans are refusing to restore protections for Dreamers – unless Democrats meet a series of absurd demands, including Trump’s infamous and unnecessary border wall and drastically slashing long-standing avenues for illegal immigration,” the memo continues. “Throughout 2017, Trump repeatedly cheered the notion of shutting down government if his demands aren’t met, going so far as to promise in August, ‘If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall.’”

Palmieri then sounded off a battle cry for Democrats to tout in their attempt to remain the champion of those who support illegal immigration into the U.S. that has proven vital to the party’s success in states such as California, Arizona and New York at the ballot box … using the argument that “hundreds of thousands of Dreamers live in perpetual fear” every day because of Republicans – not because they are simply breaking the law.

“This time, Democrats need to stand with Dreamers and do whatever it takes to ensure they remain in this country,” she stressed. “Democrats should refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”



CATERING TO ILLEGALS

The immigration activist then impressed that it is imperative for Democrats to align politically with illegal immigration supporters – if they want to remain in office – by gleaning from racial divisions on the West Coast in the 1990s.

“Voters want to know that politicians and leaders are with them and ultimately one of them,” Palmieri explained. “That is the key lesson to draw from the political realignment that took place in California in the years following the enactment of Proposition 187. Although support for Republicans among California Latinos had been on the rise in the years preceding that ballot initiative, the anger and alienation felt by Latino residents – and by some white Republican voters, as well – led to a rapid seismic shirt in the political landscape of the state.”

It was then stressed that Democrats seize this opportunity to latch onto the sentiments of Mexican American voters who support unbridled Mexican immigration into the U.S. via California’s border with Mexico – noting that the party must continue to polarize itself from Trump and Republicans and play on racial divisions to achieve its political agenda of attaining dominance among Latino voters.

“Despite Donald Trump’s fantastical assertions, Latino support for Republicans will only continue to wane,” Palmieri claimed in the document. “The Republican Party – particularly with Trump as its leader – has been plainspoken about its disdain for immigrants and is more interested in bashing immigrants to cater to its base than it is in acknowledging that immigrants are an important part of America’s social fabric. As a result, Republicans have – in all likelihood – lost the overwhelming majority of Latino voters for at least a generation.”

She then pointed to polling statistics from leftist sources to contend that an “amnesty or bust” attitude is imperative if Democrats wish to pull in every possible Latino vote out there.

“A September poll by Latino Decisions found that 91 percent of Latinos want Congress to pass a Dream Act with a path to earned citizenship,” Palmieri informed. “But public support for Dreamers extends far beyond Latinos. For some context, a fall Washington Post-ABC poll found 86 percent of Americans support protecting Dreamers. Similarly, a Politico/Morning Consult poll found that only 15 percent of Americans believe that Dreamers should be deported – the ultimate result of Trump’s decision and continued congressional inaction.”

Her assertion from these recent polls could hold some truth, as a Pew poll taken during Obama’s last term divulged that only a small trace of Latino illegals – 75 percent of illegal aliens in the U.S. are Latino – identify as Republican.

“In 2012, the Pew Research Center’s National Survey of Latinos found that among Latino immigrants who are not U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents – and therefore likely unauthorized immigrants – some 31 percent identify as Democrats and just 4 percent as Republicans,” Pew divulged in July 2013. “An additional 33 percent say they are political independents, 16 percent mention some other political party and 15 percent say they ‘don’t know’ or refuse to answer the question.”

Palmieri then drew her plea to Democrats to an end by warning them about the consequences of not opposing Trump’s tough-on-immigration policies tooth and nail.

“Dreamers may not be equally represented in every state, but Latinos are a critical part of the progressive coalition and progressive leaders have to step up and fight for them,” Palmieri impressed. “If Democrats can’t even stand up to Trump and Republicans in defense of Dreamers – whose moral case is unassailable – they will leave a lot of progressives wondering who Democrats will fight for. At that point, Latinos may not be the only constituency within the Democratic base that becomes dispirited and disengaged.”

Her closing argument incited Democrats to fully endorse every pro-immigration issue out there – or concede a vital sector of the vote, which she argues would prove disastrous for her party at future elections.

“If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond,” Palmieri concluded her memo to Democratic leaders. “In short, the next few weeks will tell us a lot about the Democratic Party and its long-term electoral prospects.”





Wow.

Too bad Lenin and Trotsky lost in Nov 2016, and were not in place to carry their flag across the finish line.

DACA Migrants Have One-Quarter College-Graduation Rate of Americans


 Quote:

by Neil Munro, 13 Nov 2017

Only four percent of ‘DACA’ recipients have completed college, far below the roughly 17 percent of similar-aged young Americans who have college degrees, according to data released by the Migration Policy Insitute, which favors immigration.
The data means that average DACA beneficiaries are far less educated and less productive than Americans, and if ever awarded an amnesty, will be far more likely to rely on taxpayers’ aid throughout their lives. According to the MPI report:




While DACA recipients are almost as likely as U.S. adults in the same age group (15-32) to be enrolled in college (18 percent versus 20 percent), they are far less likely to have completed college (4 percent versus 18 percent).

However, the DACA beneficiaries comprise only one-third of the roughly 1.78 million young illegals who are aged 15 or older in September 2017, according to the MPI data. If the roughly 30,000 DACA beneficiaries with four-year college degrees are compared to this larger group of 1.78 million, then only 1.7 percent of young ‘dreamer’ illegals aged 15 to 32 hold four-year college degrees.

That ‘dreamer’ graduation rate is just one-tenth of the 17 percent of similar-aged Americans who hold four-year college degrees.

The new data contradicts media-magnified claims by Democrats and business groups that the 690,000 young DACA illegals and the at least 2 million ‘Dreamers’ can rejuvenate the U.S. economy and culture in ways that mere Americans cannot accomplish. For example, FWD.us, a lobbying group created by Silicon Valley investors, declared in September 2017 that:


Dreamers are vital to the future of our companies and our economy. With them, we grow and create jobs. They are part of why we will continue to have a global competitive advantage.

The FWD.us group was formed to increase the supply of foreign white-collar workers, and it is using the DACA controversy to attack political support for President Donald Trump’s popular pro-American immigration reform principles.



Similarly, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, insisted in September the DACA amnesty is “the biggest issue of our time,” that Americans are inhuman for not supporting a no-strings amnesty, that DACA illegals are better Americans than Americans, and each illegal is as useful to the economy as billionaire Mike Bloomberg:


This is the biggest issue of our time because this goes to the values of being American. This is ‘Are we human’? ‘Are we acting in a track of morality?’ right? These people … At Apple we have many … they love America deeply. When you talk to them, I wish everyone in America loved American this much. They have jobs, they pay taxes, they are pillars of their community, They’re incredible people, and so, to me, it would be like someone coming to Mike [Bloomberg] and saying ‘Mike, I just found out you aren’t really a citizen here, you need to leave.’ This is unacceptable. This is not who we are as a country, and so I am personally shocked that there is even a discussion of this.

Democrats want to provide a ‘Dream Act’ amnesty to at least 3 million of the younger illegals, which would also allow them to bring in roughly 10 million chain-migration relatives from Mexico and other countries. In September 2017, the two top Democratic leaders in the House and Senate — Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer — declared:


In our home communities, there are Dreamers like Jessica and Javier. Jessica was brought to the United States at the age of 2 and did not know she was undocumented until middle school. In 2011, she secured a full-merit scholarship to the Macaulay Honors College at CUNY and started on her journey to becoming a doctor.

Javier studied economics and biotechnology at California State University in Northridge. He worked as a software engineer in Silicon Valley and is now a young entrepreneur. What kind of country would we be if we closed the door on Dreamers? What kind of country would we be, if we say that Jessica, Javier, and 800,000 hard-working young people just like them, are not welcome here?

We have both met Dreamers and heard their stories. We know that these young people represent what’s great about our country and they should be allowed to stay. They are an integral part of our communities, and their stories, their tenacity and fearlessness make them as American as apple pie.

The MPI data shows a much more modest contribution by the 382,000 illegals who hold jobs because of their DACA work-permits.


The occupations most commonly employing DACA holders are food preparation and servicing (16 percent, or 60,000 workers), dales (14 percent, or 54,000 workers) and office and administrative support (2 percent, or 47,000 workers) … About 5,000 work as health-care practitioners…. Almost 3,000 each work in business operations and in computer or mathematical operations.

The MPI’s data shows that only 6,000 — or 1.6 percent — of the 382,000 DACA job-holders work in white-collar technology-related occupations. That number is 0.9 percent of DACA holders, and 0.34 percent of the ‘dreamer’ population aged 15 to 32. Another 9,000 DACA-holders work as teachers or teachers’ aides, says the MPI estimate.



Also, a website run by the education-sector trade group reports that only 5 to 10 percent of the young illegals even enroll in college, even though the illegals face few restrictions in most states. The percentage estimate means that only 6,000 young illegals sign up for college each year, according to the American Council on Education.

The low academic performance of the DACA recipients likely has many causes, including their parents’ inability to pay the financial costs of U.S. college, the low quality of schools in the migrants’ home countries, and the limited ambitions and abilities of their parents, many of whom were peasants or uneducated urban workers who were admirably determined to build a better lives for themselves and their children.

Other studies show that most migrants perform very poorly in Americans schools. For example, a study released November 1 by the Anne E. Casey Foundation showed incredibly poor reading and math proficiency of fourth grade and eight-grade immigrants. According to a report in Breitbart News:


“On most of the measures we track in Race for Results, children in immigrant families fare worse than those in U.S.-born families,” the study authors purport. “Especially troubling are the large gaps in many of the education measures of both children and their parents.”

For children in the 4th grade living in immigrant families, only eight percent scored at or above the proficiency level in reading. In math, the proficiency rate is even worse, with only five percent of 8th graders in immigrant households scoring at or above the proficiency level.

Compare these statistics to that of children who are born in the U.S. to non-foreign families, where 38 percent of 4th graders scored at or above the reading proficiency level and 34 percent of 8th graders scored at or above the math proficiency.

Poor education levels translate into slower productivity growth, ensuring that Americans and their children remain poorer than otherwise and that American’s economy remains smaller that is possible with higher productivity growth.

Federal data shows that the low educational level of migrants also ensures lifetime dependence on taxpayers’ aid and welfare, including Obamacare. For example, a 2015 report by the Center for Immigration Studies showed:


In 2012, 51 percent of households headed by an immigrant (legal or illegal) reported that they used at least one welfare program during the year, compared to 30 percent of native households. Welfare in this study includes Medicaid and cash, food, and housing programs …

Welfare use varies among immigrant groups. Households headed by immigrants from Central America and Mexico (73 percent), the Caribbean (51 percent), and Africa (48 percent) have the highest overall welfare use. Those from East Asia (32 percent), Europe (26 percent), and South Asia (17 percent) have the lowest …

The large share of immigrants with low levels of education and resulting low incomes partly explains their high use rates. In 2012, 76 percent of households headed by an immigrant who had not graduated high school used one or more welfare programs, as did 63 percent of households headed by an immigrant with only a high school education …

The high rates of immigrant welfare use are not entirely explained by their lower education levels. Households headed by college-educated immigrants have significantly higher welfare use than households headed by college-educated natives — 26 percent vs. 13 percent.

The MPI study differs sharply from prior estimates issued by advocacy groups, such as the Center for American Progress.



Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting 1 million new legal immigrants, by providing almost 2 million work-permits to foreigners, by providing work-visas to roughly 500,000 temporary workers and doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.

The Washington-imposed economic policy of mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor, spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment and job creation in many interior states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a new report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs and businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.

Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a growing percentage of the nation’s annual income is shifting to investors and away from employees



Definitely statistics you won't see on CNN, MSNBC or MediaMatters.

Tucker Carlson's Jan 17th program again blasts the elitist mentality of admitting or giving amnesty to illegals. Then he mops the floor with a lawyer advocate of "shithole countries" immigration.

Giving great examples from the poverty and destruction to California from unrestrained immigration.
