(Tea Party PAC) – Well, if little Mayor Pete manages to somehow not only secure his party’s nomination but to defeat Donald Trump, we can expect the Democrat establishment status quo to make a full return to Washington DC, or rather, to small-town America.
This is what this supposed Midwestern Hero wants to do to the heartland.
Buttigieg is touting a new visa program which would flood small American towns with legal aliens to grow the population in the region (wait, what about overpopulation?) which would be a boon to corporate investors, housing developers, and big business.
Congratulations, Mayor Pete, you’ve officially reminded us that it is corporate America, not genuinely desperate refugees, who benefit from mass migration.
During a campaign stop in Merrimack, New Hampshire, Buttigieg said, according to Breitbart:
I’m proposing what we call “Community Renewal Visas” that when a community that is very much in need of growing its population, recognizes that, and makes a choice to welcome more than its share of new Americans that we create a fast-track, if they apply for an allotment of visas, that goes to those who are willing to be in those areas that maybe are hurting for population but have great potential.
Breitbart explains that:
Buttigieg’s population growth agenda mimics a plan by the Economic Innovation Group, an organization led by investors, that seeks to create a “Heartland Visa” to flood small American towns with more legal immigration to increase the population.
More residents in the U.S. through immigration deliver huge returns for Wall Street, big business, developers, and investors who benefit from the addition of millions of new consumers, as well as residents in need of housing and jobs.
For years, investors and the pro-migration lobby have sought to increase the nation’s population via legal immigration to drive up the need for additional housing, which in return provides developers and contractors with a series of new work while increasing housing prices for Americans.
The US population is already expected to grown an unprecedented 404 million residents by 2060 at current legal immigration levels of about 1.2 million admissions a year which will lend itself to increased vehicles on the road, more urban sprawl, additional housing and commercial development, and a higher living density for Americans.
Mayor Pete has also hinted that he would support Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) S. 386 which would ensure that only Indian nationals would obtain the majority of the nation’s employment-based green cards over the next ten years.
This legislation is a boon to firms like Cognizant and Infosys, as well as commercial tech giants Amazon and Facebook, as it would solidify a green card system in which only foreign workers on H-1B visas would be able to obtain employment green cards by creating a backlog of seven to eight years for all foreign nationals.
“And so a couple of steps I think would help make [the legal immigration system] better: One is these country caps that exist that create a longer and longer clock on family reunification and other ways to make sure folks can get through that process,” Buttigieg said. “It’s based on numbers that were settled on in the 1980s. It makes no sense. And it has no relationship to our economic reality. So when we have work-based visas, those pathways to come to the country, it should be something that can be revisited and revised every two years in an administrative process instead of literally taking an act of Congress to go clear up.”
Currently, there are 62 million immigrants and their US-born children living in the United States, which is a record high.
Nearly half of the residents in the country’s five largest cities speak a language other than English at home.
