President Joe Biden’s border policy has invited 1.15 million migrants to cross the border since October 2021, despite the maintenance of the Title 42 epidemic border barrier, according to data released by the Department of Homeland Security.
The 1.15 million economic migrants were allowed to cross the border under a series of legal excuses. They were accompanied by about 500,000 additional job-seeking migrants who snuck past or rushed past Biden’s small force of distracted border guards.
The 1.15 million migrants represented more than half of the two million migrants who arrived at the border. Few were flown back – so many rejected migrants were then able to sneak across the border.
Another 150,000 migrants are expected to be welcomed this month.
At the same time, Biden lawmakers admitted another million legal immigrants, visa seekers and job seekers posing as short-term tourists. These migrants carry green cards or H-1B, L-1, J-1, TN, F-1 or B-1/B-2 visas.

So the massive Biden flood adds about three migrants for every four Americans who will be born this year.
Its flood delivers three foreign migrants for every four Americans who turn 18 this year.
In contrast, President Donald Trump only allowed 253,000 migrants to cross the border in 2020. He also reduced the influx of legal and visa immigrants.
This low-migration policy gave more than 100 million American workers the tight labor market they needed to earn extra wages, more technology investments and better treatment in the workplace in 2020 and 2021.
Predictably, Biden’s migration is driving down Americans’ wages. It also pushes up rents and house prices, and pushes up inflation for a wide variety of goods, such as used cars and food.
Mass migration also distorts normal politics. For example, Democrats say racism drives Americans’ attempts to protect their economic and civic rights amid the flood of foreign economic migrants.
Likewise, GOP lawmakers are ignoring the economic hit of migration on Americans and trying to focus voters on other issues, such as migrant crime, chaos and drug trafficking.
The massive influx is supported by the economic beneficiaries – the country’s political and business elites.

He is also supported by many of his college-educated supporters in the media and professional sector. University-level supporters, however, are paying heavily for their support of the migration. Many are earning lower wages amid the huge influx of white-collar migrants, and many are choosing to buy homes or rent apartments in low-diversity neighborhoods where they expect schools and crime better than in neighborhoods damaged by the influx of migrants.
The least productive groups of American citizens also lose out to enthusiastic, hard-working, and grateful economic migrants in the national economy.
For example, the left-leaning DC Fiscal Policy Institute reported on Sept. 15 how less-educated Americans are struggling in DC’s economy:
Affording the basics, such as rent, food and utilities, is a daily challenge for many DC residents. This is disproportionately true for black residents, one in five of whom live in poverty. Income support programs help people make ends meet and improve long-term educational and health outcomes for children.
One of the migrants who was handed over to DC by Biden’s semi-open border policy, Lever Alejos, spoke with Miriam Jordan, a reporter at the New York Times:
A solid member of the middle class in Venezuela, he struggled to keep his machinery repair shop afloat amid the country’s economic collapse. In Venezuela these days, many people only earn a few dollars a day.
Within a few days [of arriving in D.C.], Mr. Alejos found work in construction. By the second week, he was sending money home to support his 7-year-old son, Christopher, and saving to buy a cell phone. At the end of the fall, he plans to leave the shelter to settle in his home.
“There are so many opportunities here,” he told Jordan. “Just enjoy it.”
Almost all nonprofit migration advocates ignore the economic bias created by migration, just as they ignore Biden’s massive migration death toll.
But this policy of seeing no problem is risky, in part because it could lead to a massive political correction in November that would undermine many other Democratic priorities and ideological claims.
Polls show that Biden’s migration is a very high priority for Americans, even as pollsters claim immigration is not tied to the economy or inflation.

For example, the GOP has 46% support — a 17-point advantage — on immigration, and 56% support — a 36-point advantage — on border issues, according to a September NBC poll of 1 000 registered voters.
The GOP also has 47% support for the economy, giving it a 19-point edge over the Democrats.
The poll also showed that ‘jobs and economy’, ‘cost of living’ and ‘immigration and border situation’ were seen as the most important issues by 44% of respondents.
Government officials want to grow the economy, and immigration is an easier tool than incrementally increasing exports, productivity or the birth rate.
Thus, federal governments extract millions of migrants from poor countries and use them as additional workers, consumers and tenants.
This extractive migration policy grows the national economy but also skews it in favor of employers and investors. For example, migration tends to ensure that employers do not lack labour. The absence of “tight labor markets” ensures that migration moves great wealth from employees to investors, billionaires and Wall Street. This, in turn, makes it difficult for ordinary Americans to advance in their careers, get married, raise a family, or buy a home.
Extractive migration also slows innovation and reduces Americans’ productivity. This is happening because it encourages employers to raise stock prices by relying on disposable workers rather than uncapturable American professionals and technology.
This migration policy also reduces exports by minimizing the economic pressure on American companies to accumulate complementary trade with people in poor countries.
Migration undermines employee rights in the workplace and widens regional economic gaps between the Democrats’ cheap-labor coastal states and the Republicans’ central and southern states.
An economy fueled by extractive migration also drains American political influence on elites. It alienates young people and radicalizes the democratic civic culture of Americans because it gives wealthy elites and progressives an excuse to ignore Desperate Americans at the bottom of society, like drug addicts.
This economic strategy is being pushed enthusiastically by progressives who wish to transform the United States from a society ruled by European-descended civic culture into an economic empire of jealous identity groups overseen by progressive controllers. “We are trying to become the world’s first multi-racial, multi-ethnic superpower,” Rep. Rohit Khanna (D-CA) said. New York Times in March 2022. “It will be an extraordinary achievement. … We will eventually triumph,” he boasted.
But the colonialist-style economic strategy of the progressives is killing many migrants. It exploits migrant poverty and divides foreign families by extracting human resources from poor home countries to serve wealthy American investors.
progressive to hide this extractive migration economic policy behind a wide variety of lofty-sounding narratives and theatrical programs of border security. For example, they claim that the United States is a “nation of immigrants”, that migration helps migrants and that the state must renew itself by replacing populations.
Likewise, establishment Republicans, corporate media, and major GOP donors hide the bias caused by migration. They remove any acknowledgment of the impact on the wallet and instead tout border chaos, social spending, migrant crime and drug trafficking.
Many polls show that the public wants to welcome some immigration. But polls also show deep and broad public opposition to labor migration and the influx of temporary contract workers into the good jobs America’s college graduates need to raise their families.
This “third rail” opposition is growing, protesting, multiracial, heterosexual, non-racist, class, bipartisan, rationalpersevering, and recognizes the solidarity that American citizens owe to each other.
