Alejandro Mayorkas, the border director for President Joe Biden, was questioned this week about whether or not the enormous and continuing influx of economic migrants is beneficial for American salaries and rents. He said that our country is a “Nation of Immigrants.”
The pro-immigration border director, who was born in Cuba, answered a few procedural questions from selected media as he discussed some of his fresh initiatives to get more migrants into American jobs and communities. Mayorkas addressed a newsroom that was mostly empty and remarked, “Our president has overseen the most significant growth of legitimate pathways ever.”
However, Breitbart News questioned the fairness of Mayorkas’s policy on immigration during a period of declining incomes, increasing rents, and escalating public disorder.
“BBN: How will the new immigration routes you are creating benefit Americans, sir? The question of whether Americans benefit from all the immigrants you bring in, despite the fact that wages are down and rent is increased,” is never raised by journalists.
“Mayorkas: Sir, we are an immigrant-based country. We are a country of laws. People who are eligible for relief through our laws have a reason to stay in the country. It is obvious how much immigrants have contributed to our nation.”
The population of the country has increased by at least six million as a result of the Biden migration, which includes four million workers. Three migrants enter the country for every four babies born in America, on average. After Mayorkas removes the Title 42 border restriction this week, millions more are anticipated.
The “Nation of Immigrants” assertion made by Mayorkas relates to the Cold War lobbying myth that the United States is a country for immigrants rather than for native-born people. Despite the fact that Americans’ main concerns still revolve around fellow Americans, the narrative was developed by commercial interests and advocacy groups with ties to the Democratic Party.
The fiction has nothing to do with history from the 20th century and no legal foundation. Furthermore, several surveys demonstrate that majorities and pluralities of different Americans favor accepting fewer immigrants.
In D.C. politics, the majority choice is becoming more apparent.
Business organizations advocated and supported Mayorkas’ flood since it lowers both white-collar and blue-collar wages for Americans. Businesses also embrace the movement since it eases the pressure from the market to invest in markets abroad, heartland states, and technology that boosts productivity. Additionally, it lessens the political and economic pressure on the federal government to address the drug and “Deaths of Despair” issues.
Mayorkas is a fervent supporter of immigration.
Mayorkas said to those in attendance at the Aspen Institute around July 2022, “I am, to a large extent, aligned according to the expectations” of the immigrant population.
