A report out of the Washington Post has stated that a Trump Executive Order will “deny admission to any alien who is likely to become a public charge” and set up standards for “determining whether an alien currently residing in the United States is deportable … for having become a public charge within five years of entry.”
As to whether this is more Fake News from the Post is debatable, time will tell if the Order actually exists. But what is truly strange is that there could be any reasonable objection to a proposal like this. The media and political narrative from the Left tells us that migrants are a net benefit to our economy so we should encourage more of it, but those that are demonstrably not a benefit don’t fit into this category. Many Americans will be asking themselves why the state should be supporting people who either cannot or will not work.
When we consider that 55% of young African Americans are out of work, that hundreds of thousands of people can’t make ends meet, and that the National Debt stands at $20 trillion and rising, the idea that the US should be the welfare provider for non-US citizens is ludicrous.
The America First policy posed by Donald Trump, is a good one. Once the US has taken care of its citizens (native and migrant alike), then it can start looking at helping others. But not before.
“Disinformation” by the mainstream media for decades had always been assumed, however the left always attempted to dispute that premise, until this past campaign season when “FAKE NEWS” actually became a campaign issue, as those within the mainstream media doubled down and attempted to overtly rig the news in favor of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. And almost all of the mainstream outlets including New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, CBS, and ABC, “all” to some degree manipulated the news in favor of the Democratic Presidential Candidate.
However perhaps the most egregious incident took place at one of the Democratic debates, when CNN actually gave questions to one of Hillary’s surrogates before the beginning of the debate with Bernie Sanders. And of course just a few weeks ago CNN again knowingly reported a bogus story from an unreliable source, attacking President Trump.
So once again this report by one of the major players of “FAKE NEWS” the Washington Post, should be taken with a healthy dose of caution.
The “information” obtained reportedly will “deny admission to any alien who is likely to become a public charge” and set up standards for “determining whether an alien currently residing in the United States is deportable … for having become a public charge within five years of entry.”
The article points out that the underlying goal is designed to make our U.S. Immigration policy more “merit-based,” so that those immigrants who have exceptional skill sets and can contribute to the overall benefit of the country would be welcomed, while those who burden our welfare system are kept out, or deported
Sounds harsh? And yet most common sense Americans would agree that with a $20-trillion dollar debt and with a GDP at currently 2% and where better than 95,000 Americans are out of work, and where almost 55% of young African-American youths are unemployed.
America can least afford more drag on our economy…no doubt the Washington Post article, whether it’s “FAKE NEWS” or not, most relational and reasoned individuals would first attempt to get our own “house’ in order.
