Earlier, by Michelle Malkin: A Day Without American Tech Workers

"We're full, our system's full, our country's full!" That was President Donald Trump last year at our southern border.

"Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families." That was Trump in January 2017 at his inaugural address.

"The influx of foreign workers holds down salaries, keeps unemployment high, and makes it difficult... to earn a middle class wage." That was presidential candidate Trump in 2016.

Contrast those clarion "America First" statements with the apparent hysteria of Trump's current acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, who was caught on tape telling a private audience of elites in England last week: "We are desperate—desperate—for more people. We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we've had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants."

Mulvaney reportedly went on to push for "expanding" merit- and employment-based immigration to fill all the high-skilled jobs that Americans purportedly aren't capable of filling. By how much, for how long, in which visa categories and under what conditions this "expansion" should happen, Mulvaney is not reported to have detailed. (He will be featured at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday morning. It would be nice if someone asked him to elaborate, wouldn't it?)

"Running out of people" is typical Beltway swamp talk from a big business lobbyist trafficking in open borders "Chicken Little" alarmism. Has Mulvaney opened a newspaper or browsed the internet in the last 10 years? How about the last week? Over a 48-hour period, I compiled a Twitter thread of more than 50 stories of tens of thousands of recent U.S. worker layoffs in tech and other high-skilled industries. Among the U.S. corporations and institutions responsible for laying off, replacing, offshoring, and outsourcing tens of thousands of American jobs:

Tuesday’s New York Times front page includes an article titled “Immigration By Legal Path Begins to Fall” showing how President Trump’s efforts to reduce the foreign influx into America has begun to turn the tide.

Earlier, by Peter Brimelow: Are Hispanics Sadistic? Tormenting a "Sexy Girl"

Whatever Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) has done to help stem the tide of Central Americans crossing the U.S. border, he’s failed to bring down the country’s extraordinary murder rate.  And two high-profile murders in Mexico City—one a young woman and the other a little girl—are highlighting the problem of “femicide” in particular. Our current immigration policy is importing this problem here. We still need a wall!

Homicides in Mexico rose 2.7 percent in 2019; an astonishing 36,000 people were murdered, some 100 per day [Mexico’s homicide count in 2019 among its highest, by Mary Beth Sheridan, The Washington Post, January 21, 2020]. Mexico has the highest murder rate among Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development member states by far, at 24.8 per 100,000 The U.S. comes in second at a disgraceful 5.3 per 100,000—given immigration policy, not unrelated.

But “femicide” is currently the main problem for AMLO politically, as two recent cases demonstrate:

  • Ingrid Escamilla, 25, was stabbed and murdered on February 9 by her 46-year-old live-in boyfriend. He partially skinned her and removed some of her organs and dumped them in a sewer [Mexican Cops To Blame For Ingrid Escamilla's Death, by Apeksha Bagchi, Latin Times, February 18, 2020]. The suspect wasn’t hard to catch. Cops found him holding the knife…standing next to her body. Then he confessed.

Mexican tabloids published photos of Escamilla’s body on their front pages [A 25-year-old woman was brutally murdered and skinned in Mexico. Then newspapers published photos of the body, by Rob Picheta and Natalie Gallon, CNN, February 14, 2020].

Sen. Bernie Sanders may be on the cusp of both capturing the Democratic nomination and transforming his party as dramatically as President Donald Trump captured and remade the Republican Party.

After his sweep of the Nevada caucuses, following popular vote victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders has the enthusiasm and the momentum, as the crucial battles loom in South Carolina on Saturday and Super Tuesday on March 3.

The next eight days could decide it all.

And what is between now and next Tuesday that might interrupt Sanders' triumphal march to the nomination in Milwaukee?

One possible pitfall is tonight's debate in South Carolina.

Earlier: Trump Needs To Fire Mick Mulvaney, Get Back To 2016 Immigration Plan

Mick Mulvaney, President Trump’s acting chief of staff, says the White House is “desperate” for more immigrants. “We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we’ve had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants,” he told an English audience recently [Mulvaney says U.S. is ‘desperate’ for more legal immigrants, by Nick Miroff and Josh Dawsey, The Washington Post, February 20, 2020]. It’s possible Mulvaney, a long-time immigration booster, was just expressing his own opinion. But Trump himself recently said he wants more foreign workers. With Jared Kushner’s comprehensive immigration plan stalled, and the Democrat presidential candidates spiraling into Open Borders lunacy, cheap labor donorists are swooping in to fill the vacuum.

Thus POLITICO just reported that the White House is working on a guest worker expansion. The plan could either create new guest worker categories and/or prolong the time a migrant can stay on a temporary guest worker visa. The plan may even grant Amnesty to the “DREAMers” —the nearly one million illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as minors who were legalized under Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The goal is to give big business more cheap foreign labor. Whatever exact plan is settled upon will bri

This week's big talking point was of course Wednesday night's televised debate from Las Vegas, featuring the six leading Democratic Party candidates for President.

I normally report on these events in world-weary mode, telling you how much I hate them and what a struggle I had to keep awake. This one was different. I watched the whole thing—all two hours—with fascinated attention.

The country at large agreed with me. Almost twenty million people tuned in to Wednesday's debate, making it the most-watched Democratic candidates' debate ever, according to NBC.

(If you're a Republican you can take consolation from the fact that even Wednesday's night's twenty million was way short of the twenty-four million that Fox News pulled in back in August 2015 for the first GOP debate that year featuring Donald Trump.)

The pundits’ consensus: that Michael Bloomberg lost bigly. My Thursday New York Post put a picture of Bloomberg on the cover page with sticking plasters all over his face. Tucker Carlson on Thursday was crowing and chuckling over what he called Bloomberg's "humiliation."
