  • June 11 - Virginia Secedes

    Comment: Virginia Secedes

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated in the Republican Primary in Virginia's 7th district yesterday, marking the first time ever that a Majority Leader of the House has been defeated in a primary since that office was created in 1899, 115 years ago. The Washington Post reports "The defeat of the second-ranking Republican in the House by an ill-funded, little-known tea party-backed candidate ranks as the biggest Congressional upset in modern memory and will immediately generate a series of political and policy-related shockwaves in Washington and the Richmond-area 7th district."

    Immigration Daily hears the anti-immigration opinion of Republicans in Mr. Cantor's district - we hear it, but we do not respect it - we do not respect it because such an opinion flies in the face of the facts of today's globalized world. Wishing that the tide relent will not make it so - we thus acknowledge the opinion of Republicans in Virginia's 7th district, but things have now come to such a pass, that such opinion is beyond respecting. The deliberate and malicious infliction by southern racist Republicans of unrelenting suffering on undocumented Americans can no longer be treated as within the vicissitudes of normal politics.

    Regardless of how immigration legislation fares in the balance of the 112th Congress, we encourage pro-immigration advocates to realize that the regularization, legalization and eventual citizenship of undocumented Americans is a foregone political conclusion - the issue is when, not if. We further encourage pro-immigrationists to commence planning punitive actions against southern racist Republicans, to be taken at a future date (such actions should of course be lawful, punishments are not outside the bounds of following legal process). By purposes of illustration, we believe that the time has come to consider a future Constitutional amendment for deporting (exiling) people such as former Rep. Tom Tancredo. It is now clear that carrots will not be enough to move immigration goals forward, sticks will also be needed.

    Sen. Graham's outright win in his Republican primary in South Carolina, despite a barrage of attacks by anti-immigrationists, shows both that southern racists are not entirely crazy (yet), and also shows that the South still has statesmen. It seems however that future immigration progress will have to come without attempting to persuade most southern Republicans, since their minds appear to be closed to political forms of persuasion.

    Yesterday's primary results put the final nail in the coffin of any further delays by President Obama for wide-scale immigration relief through executive action. Waiting for legislation is now a fool's errand, and any excuses by the White House will only prove that some Democrats hate immigrants as much as some Republicans do. If Mr. Obama wants to guarantee a Republican win for President in 2016, he merely has to sit on his hands and let the immigration issue slip out of the grasp of the Democratic Party. We encourage the White House to take forceful and prompt action to ameliorate misery among undocumented Americans.

    • Organic leads: we ensure to only invite brand new attendees for our events in order to exclusively provide our clients with fresh leads as opposed to recycling contacts made from past.
    • An intimate ambiance: we purposely guarantee a minimum number of attendees ranging between 25-30 attendees in total per event in order to ensure all questions are answered thoroughly and that direct contact is established between the presenter and potential investor. In addition, we ensure that each potential investor has an opportunity to sit down with the presenter in a private 1 on 1 sit down in immediately after the presentation portion which increases transparency for the potential investor.
    • A unique opportunity for professionals that participate in this service to convert as many possible investors without paying a single cent in commission or any relative fees as typically witnessed in the Beijing EB-5 industry.
    • Fully ethical and SEC compliant services related solely to marketing which does not involve the selling or facilitation of security placement.
