Trump Indicates End of ‘Hire American’ Policy, May Invite More Foreign Workers
Breitbart ^ | 2/7/2019 | Neil Munro

President Donald Trump suggested that he is ready to ditch his Inauguration Day promise of a “Hire American” economic policy — even though thousands of auto workers are being laid off, millions of Americans do not have jobs, and many millions of Americans cannot get better-paying jobs.

The huge policy shift in favor of employers and investors is emerging after Congress blocked his border wall and his border security reforms, and after the GOP-led Congress passed Trump’s tax cut.

“It is fair to say that the President is abandoning his Hire American policy,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

One of the draft visa-worker expansions is dubbed “country caps.” It would remove diversity provisions in immigration law to allow employers to offer citizenship to roughly 100,000 Indian outsourcing workers each year if they agree to cheaply replace the American graduates who are now working in well-paid software, accounting, design, engineering, medicine, and education careers. The panel is expected to draft their plan by February 15.

On Wednesday, Trump reaffirmed the pro-migration statement when he was asked by a reporter “So, you’re changing your policy officially, then? You want more legal immigration?”

Trump answered “I need people coming in because we need people to run the factories and plants and companies that are moving back in. We need people.”

“Our unemployment numbers are so low,” Trump said.

On February 1, the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed the unemployment rate was at 4 percent. But it also showed that 12.5 million Americans are either unemployed or want to get jobs. In the 1960s, roughly 97 percent of men aged 25 to 54 worked — but that percentage dropped to 80 percent in 2009 and was still only at 86.2 percent in December 2018.

So wages are finally starting to increase and Trump wants to kill that by bringing in more labor.

I tell my son and his friends that if they plan on going into tech to expect to have a shorter career than other options. It pisses me off but I accept that it’s part of the industry. The youth bias is very difficult to overcome. The H1-B program and available staff offshore definitely makes it easier for employers to dump older tech workers.

New Mexico governor orders withdrawal of National Guard troops from borderWashington Examiner ^ | February 06, 2019 10:08 AM | Caitlin Yilek Posted on 2/7/2019, 8:08:29 PM by E. Pluribus Unum

The Democratic governor of New Mexico ordered a partial withdrawal of the state’s National Guard troops from the U.S.-Mexico border while also taking a shot at President Trump.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, a Democrat, made the announcement a few hours before Trump delivered his State of the Union address in which he renewed his call for a wall along the southern border.

“New Mexico will not take part in the president’s charade of border fear-mongering by misusing our diligent National Guard troops,” Lujan Grisham said in a statement Tuesday.

National Guard troops were deployed to the border in April 2018 and 118 remained there before Lujan Grisham’s announcement. The governor has also directed Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Wisconsin to pull out their troops.

She said some troops will remain in the southwestern part of the state to address humanitarian needs.

“I recognize and appreciate the legitimate concerns of residents and officials in southwestern New Mexico, particularly Hidalgo County, who have asked for our assistance, as migrants and asylum-seekers continue to appear at their doorstep,” she said.

The withdrawal follows the Pentagon’s announcement Sunday that it would send an additional 3,750 troops to the border.

SO much winning!!

The people of New Mexico get exactly what they deserve for voting in a libtard


dummocrap governor. They are playing dummocrap games, while letting dummocrap illegals into their dummocrap state and thus dummocrap  into the dummocrap country.

FIFY.   Needed moar cowbell  dummocrap.

States who do not allow strict control of who gets into our country should be heavily penalized at the federal level. Put a tax on them, punish them in every way possible. You can’t have one or more states setting themselves up as “sanctuary” states which sit on our border. Illegals will just waltz into the States in those states and continue on to others.

“I’m guessing her chances of re-election are nil.”

And you would be guessing very wrong. Dems won every statewide election in 2018. They went for Hillary about as heavily as Texas went for Trump.
The “nil” chance is ever seeing a republican congressman or governor again.

No, not really. NM would be a great state were it not filled with so many lefties. Ever think of giving it back to PedroLand? I have.

So, CA, AZ and NM are reverting to anti-American Mexico. Let them secede or we can push them out. All 3 soon to become 70% Dem, anyway.

Sounds like a plan.


Insane, but a plan.


What could possibly hold it up?

Problems: FR headquarters is in CA, Freepers live in the embattled CA,AZ and NM and we are not supposed to support insurrection and civil war.

So I guess the 3 states stay.

John Roberts joins liberal justices as Supreme Court blocks Louisiana abortion clinic law Washington Times ^ Posted on 2/7/2019, 9:51:10 PM by MNDude

WASHINGTON — A divided Supreme Court stopped Louisiana from enforcing new regulations on abortion clinics in a test of the conservative court’s views on abortion rights.

The justices said by a 5-4 vote late Thursday that they will not allow the state to put into effect a law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

They own Roberts.

That law is a no brainer.

Much like your post…

Blocking it is a criminal act IMO.
