Senator Jeff Sessions —
White House officials are meeting with the world’s most powerful corporate and immigration lobbyists and activists who think border controls are for the little people. The administration is meeting with the elite, the cosmopolitan set, who scorn and mock the concerns of everyday Americans who are concerned about their schools, jobs, wages, communities, and hospitals. These great and powerful citizens of the world don’t care much about old-fashioned things like national boundaries, national sovereignty, and immigration control — let alone the constitutional separation of powers.Well, don’t you get it? They believe they are always supposed to get whatever it is they want. They are used to that. They spent hundreds of millions of dollars. In fact, one report says they have spent $1.5 billion since 2007 trying to pass their desired immigration bill — $1.5 billion. They tried and tried and tried to pass the bill through Congress, but the American people said: No, no, no. So they decided to just go to the president. They decide to go to President Obama, and they insist that he implement these measures through executive fiat.[Don't Give the Masters of the Universe Their Amnesty, by Jeff Sessions, National Review, September 11, 2014]
It's ironic that this is being published in National Review,
as Senator Sessions's speech is ultimately subverting the very basis of the Beltway Right. The immigration battle is shifting to a debate over jobs, wages, and inequality — ground that the American Right has traditionally shied away from since the fall of the Buchanan campaigns.
However, as Senator Sessions says, the American Left is now openly and proudly anti-worker. The Democratic Party is proudly anti-democratic. And they are overtly pro-plutocrat.
The immigration debate is also revealing an essential truth about government in the West — multiculturalism and corporate privilege are the same thing.
