The legislation seeks to provide cheap labor for the agricultural industry.
In the midst of tedious impeachment proceedings, the House of Representatives united beyond party lines to mass an amnesty bill for more than a million illegal immigrants Wednesday.
The Farm Workforce Modernization Act passed by 260 votes to 165, receiving 34 votes from Republicans. Three Democrats voted no.
The bill creates a process for illegals to apply for legal residency in the United States on the basis of their employment in the agricultural sector. Individuals who have worked in the industry for six months in the past two years will be able to apply for residency, should the legislation be signed into law.
The bill’s supporters claim it is necessary in order to solve a supposed labor shortage affecting the American agricultural industry and lowering the profit margins of business owners. However, they ignore that many farmers would be able to hire American workers if they were willing to pay better wages.
More than a million illegals would be eligible for residency and eventually a path to citizenship under the law’s rules.
The illegals that are often employed in California’s agricultural industry are willing to work in uncomfortable conditions for wages that are far lower than what Americans would typically be willing to work for. Bureau of Labor statistics reveal that the median hourly wage in the agricultural industry in 2014 was a paltry $10.55, hardly a wage that Americans can afford to live on.
It’s no surprise that entrenched corporate interests are hoping to bend the rules of the American immigration system in order to get more cheap labor. Lobby groups for Big Agriculture closely pushed the bill.
One Republican supporter of the Amnesty legislation even took the opportunity to take a shot at American workers upon its House passage, falsely claiming that Americans simply want to stay at home and play Xbox all day instead of working arduous jobs.
The legislation now goes to the Senate. It’s unclear if it’ll be taken up by Senate Majority Leader, who has a mixed record on opposing amnesty legislation and cheap labor giveaways for big corporations.

Representative Bradley Byrne told his Congressional colleagues during a hearing on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 that American taxpayers pay over about $60 billion to educate illegal alien students and the children of illegal aliens.
Byrne highlighted that the burden of paying for the education of more than 1.5 million legal and illegal immigrants coming into the country annually is shouldered by American citizens.
“In 2016, the Pew Research Center estimated that 3.9 million — or 7.3% — of kindergarten through 12th grade students in the United States were either here illegally or were the children of at least one parent illegally present in the United States,” Byrne stated. “Can anyone tell me how much we spend on public education for that population of students? It’s around $60 billion.”
The Republican congressman detailed that while the federal government requires English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for approximately 9.6 percent of American students who have Limited English Proficiency (LEP), state and local governments must bear the majority of the costs.
“What percentage of ESL programs are paid for by the federal government that requires them? Just over one percent,” Byrne declared. “Who pays for the rest? States and local school systems.”
So, we require it and we push 99 percent of the costs on state and local school systems. That costs a lot of money for these state and local school systems. Many of them, like my state of Alabama, just don’t have it. But because the federal government requires it, they have to put that money in there to the detriment of other programs.
That cost is not being borne by those of us in Washington. It’s being borne by men and women and the states and local school systems around the United States of America. But really the cost is being borne by children who are being denied the programs that they should have. Children who are citizens of the United States, whose parents are citizens of the United States, they’re being denied programs because we’re forcing their state and local school systems to take on an expense that we should be taking on because we’ve failed to enforce our own laws.
Steven Kopits conducted a study that showed the United States could have up to one million new migrant children by the November 2020 election — about 800,000 of those would need to be enrolled in local school districts.
The 2020 election will likely feature immigration as one of the top issues, which the Trump campaign likely recognizes given its popularity among GOP voters.
They don’t want the Saudi national’s Islamist manifesto to get out.
A Fox News host has been banned from Twitter after sharing the manifesto of a Saudi military trainee-turned Islamist terrorist who carried out a mass shooting at a Pensacola, Florida Naval installation.
Pete Hegseth shared screenshots of postings on Saturday made by Saudi national Mohammed Alshamrani shortly before the attack. Alshamrani espoused on his motivations for the terrorist actions, in which he killed three U.S Navy sailors and wounded eight more.
Alshamrani created a manifesto in which he referred to the United States as a “nation of evil,” attacked Israel, and praised Osama bin Laden.
Hegseth shared elements of his manifesto, only to go dark on Twitter sometime shortly after. He posted on Instagram on Sunday revealing that he had been banned from the platform for exposing Alshamrani’s manifesto, slamming the platform’s censorship tactics that leave the public in the dark after terrorist attacks.
Hegseth is appealing his permanent ban from Twitter, but he expressed doubt the platform would let him back on
Twitter has banned individuals who have posted writings made by terrorists before, such as the El Paso Walmart mass shooter and the New Zealand anti-Muslim terrorist. But it seems as if the platform is merely keeping the motivations of violent individuals in the dark and creating confusion by its broad policy.
In another concerning development, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has confirmed that other Saudi nationals present at the Pensacola Naval Air Station filmed Alshamrani’s attack.
Alshamrani’s terrorist attack against U.S military personnel, and the apparent involvement of other Saudi military trainees, raises serious questions about ongoing programs that facilitate the training of Saudi military personnel in the United States.

Four boats bearing dozens of migrants were intercepted crossing the English Channel on Sunday, according to reports.
A total of 39 migrants, all identifying themselves as Iranian nationals, were apprehended by authorities with U.K. Border Force and Kent Police.
“The first boat, which was stopped by the Border Force at 4.40am, contained nine people with the second incident happening at 6am – with five more people being detained in a rigid hulled inflatable boat (Rhib),” the Evening Standard reports.
Another two vessels carrying 11 and 14 migrants, respectively, were located and stopped at 7 am and 7:30 am.
“Border Force dealt with four incidents on November 17 after being alerted to small boats travelling across the Channel towards the U.K.,” a government spokeswoman said in a statement.
“The people from all boats were taken to Dover where they were medically assessed before being interviewed by immigration officials.”
The number of migrants crossing the English Channel has been steadily rising, with over 1,500 successfully completing the journey so far in 2019, a 500% increase from 2018.
In September, U.K. authorities intercepted 86 migrants illegally crossing the English Channel during a record-setting day.
British authorities revealed that migrants have become so emboldened by the lack of disciplinary action being taken against illegal crossers, some are simply calling police from their boats to arrange pick-up.
“Illegal migrants are ringing police to collect them from boats in the Channel because they are so sure of avoiding being returned to their countries, MPs have been told,” the London Times reported in February.

In February 2017 President Trump held a rally in Florida in front of thousands of supporters.
During his speech President Trump referenced the increased violence in Sweden due to the tremendous influx of refugees.
President Trump: “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden — Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden — they took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris.
The media immediately pounded on President Trump.
They ran attacks all day Sunday claiming Trump said there was a terrorist attack in Sweden.
But Trump was right.
Migrants are changing the face of Sweden.
But Trump was right.
The bombings and violence have continued to escalate in once peaceful Sweden.
On Monday Denmark closed its border with Sweden as bombings spread.
Denmark will temporarily reinstate border controls with Sweden and step up police work along the border after a series of violent crimes and explosions around Copenhagen that Danish authorities say were carried out by perpetrators from Sweden.
The checks, which start Tuesday for six months, will take place at the Oresund Bridge between Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmo and also at ferry ports.
Lene Frank of Denmark’s National Police said there will be both random and periodic checks of people crossing the border and officers will focus “particularly on cross-border crime involving explosives, weapons and drugs.”
Since February, there have been 13 blasts in Copenhagen. Authorities believe an Aug. 6 explosion at the Danish Tax Agency “was committed by criminals that had crossed the border from Sweden.” Two Swedish citizens are in custody.
