Chuck Schumer Blames Open Borders on Native Workers Not Breeding

In calling for amnesty for the tens of millions of persons who illegally reside in the United States, Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat from New York, said, “We have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to. The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the Dreamers and all of them, because our ultimate goal is to help the Dreamers but to get a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many undocumented there are here” (emphases mine).

For years, Schumer and the Democrats have dodged the truth about their position with respect to illegal immigration—that they want to legalize anyone who has crossed our borders for any reason, including those who overstay their visas. Now they’re admitting it: the Democratic Party does not really believe in national sovereignty. Why?

Schumer admits in his remarks that the path of citizenship for illegal immigrants is about legitimizing the strategy of replacing native workers with cheap foreign labor. Domestically, every year, half a trillion dollars is transferred from the native-born working class of the United States of America to the capitalist class in wages, wages that otherwise would have been paid to native and resident workers to meet their needs.

But there is also a political goal. That the District of Columbia City Council voted overwhelmingly last month to advance a bill that would allow non-citizens to vote in local elections telegraphs the goal: Democrats want to expand the voting base with immigrants because they believe those given amnesty and a path to citizenship will vote for them (see The Democratic Party and the Doctrine of Multiculturalism). If you call our Democrats for this, they will smear you as nativist, racist, and xenophobe (see Smearing Labor as Racist: The Globalist Project to Discredit the Working Class).

But who is the racist here? Has anybody mentioned to Chuck and his party that the millions of black Americans who sit idle in the progressive-run cities suffering from crime, disorder, and inter-generational poverty? Jobs and marriage are the two greatest factors in establishing the conditions necessary for leading a law-abiding life—and this effect works across generations. It’s not native workers failing to hit some theoretical replacement number by not breeding (think about what Schumer is saying). Corporate state policies pushed by the Party for decades have driven millions of blacks out of the workforce and replaced them with foreign labor. You have seen this with your own eyes. The statistical findings confirm your perception.

How about instead of open borders, which will only encourage more migration, we secure our borders, massively invest in neighborhoods devastated by globalization, re-shore industrial production, provide jobs for black men, and start rebuilding the black family? That would be the right thing to do. But doing the right thing is bad for Democrats because doing the right is bad for the oligarchy.
