  • November 7 - We Endorse

    Comment: We Endorse
    Immigration Daily has not endorsed any candidate of any Party for any elected political office "national or local" in more than 16 years of continuous daily publication. This is, in large part, due to the fact that immigration has never been central to any national election until the current Presidential race, and in small part, due to the fact that for most elections the two Parties have not historically had insurmountable differences over immigration policy.

    For the election tomoro, both Presidential candidates have laid out their respective visions for immigration in no uncertain terms, offering a significant contrast to each other in approach to immigration policy, and are openly asking the American people for a mandate to carry forth their particular vision into immediate implementation in American policy, law and practice early in 2017. This is the first time since the 1920s, in nearly a century, that immigration has risen to an apex position in the national debate, reflecting no doubt the fact that immigrants as a percentage of US population are now at peaks last seen in the 1920s.

    Mr. Trump's rhetoric has focused on undocumented immigrants, and many of our readers can be forgiven for feeling that his actions, if elected President, would therefore focus on the undocumented. However, nothing could be farther from the truth in fact, if elected, Mr. Trump would devastate both documented and undocumented immigration, both temporary and permanent. As examples, H1B and EB5 would both be wiped out from America's immigration system should Mr. Trump be elected. We offer below Mr. Trump's own words, taken from his own position statement on immigration on his website (https://www.donaldjtrump.com/policies/immigration/) on H1B and EB5, translated as they apply to H1B and EB5.

    The first 3 bullets from Mr. Trump's vision statement appear below together with the true and correct translation:
    "Prioritize the jobs, wages and security of the American people."
    Translation: Make H1Bs impossible through a draconian prevailing wage regime
    "Establish new immigration controls to boost wages and to ensure that open jobs are offered to American workers first."
    Translation: Institute labor certifications for H1Bs, making H1Bs impracticable (in other words, put the US Department of Labor in charge of all H1Bs guaranteeing multi-year delays in visa issuance, thus killing the H1B program)
    "Protect the economic well-being of the lawful immigrants already living here by curbing uncontrolled foreign worker admissions."
    Translation: Cut H1B quotas down to four figures to, in effect, abolish the H1B

    Point number 10 in Mr. Trump's 10-point immigration plan appears below together with the true and correct translation:
    "Reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, keeping immigration levels within historic norms."
    Translation: Reduce all permanent immigration quotas (including EB5 quotas) down by 80% or more, in effect killing the EB5 program.

    We assure our readers that the above translations are not hyperbole. Mr. Trump's statement on immigration was crafted, as he has repeatedly acknowledged, with the assistance of Sen. Sessions (R-AL). Immigration Daily has observed (and occasionally commented on) Sen. Sessions' actions for well over a decade, we are quite familiar with his ideas. Sen. Sessions's vision of immigration is profoundly reactionary, he wants America to revert to immigration levels seen from the 1920s to the 1960s, in other words, to levels when the openly racist National Origin Quota system was in place in America. He has no love lost for either H1B or EB5, and would gladly throw both programs away in his pursuit of a whiter America. Immigration is the one real asset America has against its major trade and military competitors across the world, but Mr. Sessions cares about race over every other consideration. Mr. Trump is using Mr. Sessions' blatantly racist blueprint for his Presidential campaign immigration policy statement. Immigration Daily strongly condemns Mr. Trump's immigration vision.

    Ms. Clinton's immigration policy statement (https://www.hillaryclinton.com/issue...ration-reform/) offers tremendous hope, not just for the undocumented, but for H1B and EB5 too. Her promise of Comprehensive Immigration Reform guarantees massive increases in temporary and permanent numbers for both H1B and EB5 practically every Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill introduced in Congress over the last decade has featured stupendous increases for H1B and EB5. Immigration Daily strongly commends Ms. Clinton's immigration vision.

    Immigration Daily doesn't just preach non-partisanship, we practice it. As proof, we have proudly carried, over the last 16 years, more Republican-authored immigration policy articles than any publication in the USA covering all sides of the immigration debate (we have just as proudly carried a huge number of Democratic-authored articles). Since some of our readers have only been with us a few years, we remind them that among Republican luminaries who have written for Immigration Daily are Patrick Buchanan, Newt Gingrich, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rupert Murdoch. We obtained our non-partisan credential the old-fashioned way: we earned it.

    As this election season progressed, we have not minced words in our disdain for Mr. Trump this disdain stems from our abhorrence of Mr. Trump's immigration vision - we reject his racist immigration viewpoint as profoundly un-American. We believe many of our Democratic readers agree with our contempt for Mr. Trump. However, we are well aware that many of our readers, particularly those who are Republicans, believe Ms. Clinton to be a crooked lying witch, and see in Mr. Trump the only instrument by which she can be stopped from ascending to the Oval Office. We address all our readers - Republicans, Democrats, and Independents: Due to the unprecedented anti-immigration vision embraced by Mr. Trump, and due to the poisonous vehemence by which he promises to pursue his anti-American immigration ideas, even should you believe Ms. Clinton to be a crooked lying witch, she is preferable to Mr. Trump in this election. Immigration Daily proudly endorses Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.
