Identity Politics and Class Warfare Define Julian Castro 2020 Campaign

Perhaps it was fitting that in the moments that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam first came under fire late last week for a yearbook photograph portraying two men in racially insensitive manners–one in blackface, the other donning Ku Klux Klan robes–former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julian Castro was the first 2020 Democrat hopeful to call on Northam to resign. Castro was out with a statement before any of his 2020 rivals—declared or considering—and was perhaps the boldest, directly calling on Northam to resign immediately. “It doesn’t matter if he…

Reformers Worry DACA Work Permit Amnesty-for-Wall Funding will Encourage More Caravans

Pro-American immigration reformers say President Trump’s plan to offer a work permit amnesty to about a million illegal aliens and foreign nationals could encourage more caravans of Central Americans to come to the United States at the U.S-Mexico border. In a weekend announcement, Trump offered Republicans and Democrats a plan to give amnesty in the form of three-year work permits to a little more than 700,000 illegal aliens who are enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The deal gives the roughly 325,000 foreign nationals living in the U.S.…

WashPost: Another Honduran Caravan Starts Next Week

Hondurans who want to escape poverty and corruption are launching another caravan of migrants towards the Californian border, according to the Washington Post. The caravan report says: In much the way last year’s Central American caravan originated, a flier is circulating on Honduran social media. “We’re looking for refuge,” it says. “In Honduras, we are being killed.” It advertises a 5 a.m. departure on Jan. 15 from the northern city of San Pedro Sula. … “We don’t know how many people this will be, but it’s a lot,” said Walter Coello, a taxi driver…

Lonergan: The Immigration Debate’s Forgotten Children

When the latest migrant caravan was marching toward America, the media focused on mothers accompanied by small children even though they were only a small number of the total group. During the media frenzy over illegal alien parents separated from their children at the border last summer, outrage was stoked by images of children behind metal fencing. TIME magazine ratcheted up the anger with a shamelessly disingenuous cover image of Donald Trump coldly staring down a sobbing child.  See a trend here? The plight of children, particularly those of illegal…

Donald Trump Claims Victory over Caravan Migrants; Demands Wall

President Donald Trump asserted Tuesday that border enforcement agents had successfully turned back the caravans of migrants trying to enter the United States, despite reports of increased illegal border crossings. “Despite the large Caravans that WERE forming and heading to our Country, people have not been able to get through our newly built Walls, makeshift Walls & Fences, or Border Patrol Officers & Military,” Trump wrote on Twitter. In November 2018, there were nearly 52,000 border crossings on the southern border, the highest number of illegal immigrants in the month…

Gavin Newsom Ready to Call CA National Guard Back from Border

California Governor-elect Gavin Newsom revealed on Thursday that he will call back the California National Guard from the border when he is sworn into office in January. After visiting the Otay Mesa Detention Center, Newsom said California’s National Guard presence “seems pretty trivial” with 1,800 “military representatives” at the border. Newsom said he would formally make the announcement to call back the National Guard once he becomes governor. “I have every desire to pull those Guardsmen back and assist in other capacities,” Newsom, the state’s current lieutenant governor, said. “It’s…

Jorge Ramos: Migrants Becoming More ‘Intelligent,’ Exploiting Porous Border to Enter U.S. Illegally

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos on Wednesday evening said that the caravan migrants seeking asylum are becoming more “intelligent” and sneaking into the United States illegally because they have discovered how porous the U.S.-Mexico border actually is. Speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Ramos, who has been on the ground in Tijuana, Mexico, revealed that the Mexican government is expecting 9,000-15,000 more migrants and thousands more after Christmas. “More are coming,” said Ramos, who said this week that the United States had a responsibility to “absorb” the caravan migrants. Ramos said since…

Migrant Caravan Leaders Hold Presser, Demand U.S. Speed Up Asylum Process

Central American migrants in the caravan held a press conference in Tijuana, Mexico, on Tuesday and demanded that the United States speed up its asylum process to allow more migrants into the country. Migrants who have spoken to establishment media outlets in recent months have cited economic reasons for coming to the United States. Economic claims, though, as even numerous establishment media outlets have noted, do not qualify migrants for asylum. As a CBS Evening News report recently acknowleged: “Most tell us they are fleeing extreme poverty, but that’s not a condition for…
