Writing at Vdare.com, Allan Wall revisits the fantabulous 2010 gathering of global elites for the Mexico City wedding of the son of Carlos Sims, the world's richest man to make the following well-reasoned observations (links from the original).
The Amnesty/immigration Surge drive comes from an international financial elite that is not just post-national, but anti-national—and especially anti-American. What can Bill or Hillary Clinton know of conditions South of the Border if they’re spending their time hanging around with the Slims?
When America’s Senator Jeff Sessions spoke out against the Obama Administration’s proposed Amnesty/Immigration Surge, he thundered,
The administration is meeting with the elite, the cosmopolitan set, who scorn and mock the concerns of everyday Americans who are concerned about their schools, jobs, wages, communities, and hospitals. These great and powerful citizens of the world don’t care much about old-fashioned things like national boundaries, national sovereignty, and immigration control — let alone the constitutional separation of powers.
[Sessions’ Address: Don’t Give “Masters of the Universe” Their Amnesty, September 12, 2014]
Mass immigration is simply a successful example of class warfare by the rich against the poor, with the sanctimonious rhetoric about immigrants concealing the reality that open borders is the most regressive policy imaginable. Sessions rightly points out that these pro-immigration plutocrats are exempt from the effects of their own policies and can isolate themselves from soaring crime, deteriorating public schools, and collapsing neighborhoods.
As the latest issue of The Social Contract (Billionaires for Open Borders) shows, it is precisely the most privileged people in the world who control our suicidal immigration policy. The roll of infamy includes familiar names such as George Soros, the Koch Brothers, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer and Michael Bloomberg.
But what’s worse: even foreign billionaires like Slim have greater control over American immigration policy than American citizens. Slim is one of the owners of the New York Times, which may explain something about the MSM Top Dog’s increased support for immigration treason.
What’s the solution? As Senator Sessions said in his “Masters of the Universe” speech,
Immigration policy is supposed to serve the national interest and the people of the United States, not the interests of a few activist CEOs and the politicians who are catering to them. We have had 40 years of mass immigration combined with falling wages, a shrinking workplace, and exploding welfare rolls….It is time for a shift in emphasis. It is time to get our own people back to work, and our communities out of poverty, and our schools back on their feet.
This kind of populist message can win votes from working class voters of all races. The opportunity is there for whatever politician or movement can seize it.
But who can break with the wealthy donors who seem to control American political parties and policies? (And where are the Progressives who are supposed to care about such things?)
America is essentially under occupation by a class that has nothing in common with the people it rules.
As the partnership between Zuckerberg, Slim, and the Clintons shows, American immigration patriotism isn’t just about standing up to destructive policies. It’s about standing against a parasitical and insulated elite that sees our country as just another resource to be exploited.
