Exit Stage Left (Zuckerberg’s Wingman Gets The Ax)

Exit Stage Left (Zuckerberg’s Wingman Gets The Ax)

One of the chief failings of the open borders movement is its persistent myopia. The people who would transform this country into a large scale hotel-complete with the scanty wages paid to those working at the lower end of the hospitality industry-can’t look beyond their own narrow goal of boosting their profits and/or political...

Working For A Living

In a gubernatorial race where both candidates are to a greater or lesser degree beholden to the open borders lobby, notwithstanding the requisite pre-election posturing of the GOP standard-bearer, a genuine debate about the impact of  mass immigration upon California has not materialized, alas.

Disemployment And The Open Borders Agenda

Disemployment And The Open Borders Agenda

The proponents of the Gang of Eight amnesty repeatedly invoke the “labor shortage” allegedly afflicting the American economy. This, despite the  worst economic recovery in modern history and protracted underemployment and unemployment, to say nothing of persistent wage stagnation.
