After viewing Miller’s masterful performance, I have to ask—Has Stephen Miller been reading VDARE.COM?
Because the topics Miller discusses in the press conference sound as though they are lifted right out of the pages of VDARE.COM.
So either Stephen Miller has been reading VDARE.COM or he’s been reading or discussing these issues with people who think like those of us at VDARE.COM. Whatever the case, it shows that our ideas are getting into the mainstream.
Consider what Miller discusses at the press conference:
Miller’s Understanding Of The Problems
Miller discusses the changes which are part of the RAISE Act legislative proposal :
Miller said that “The more that we as a country have a national conversation about what kind of immigration system we want and to whom we want to give green cards to, the more unstoppable the momentum for something like this becomes…. you’re going to see massive public support for this.”
No Labor Shortage
“If you look at—first of all, if you look at the premise, Glenn, of bringing in low-skilled labor, it's based on the idea that there's a labor shortage for lower-skilled jobs. There isn't. The number of people living in the United States in the working ages who aren't working today is at a record high.”
Cheap Labor Profiteers
“…the reason why some companies want to bring in more unskilled labor is because they know that it drives down wages and reduces labor costs.”
Miller is actually asked “Is it better for this country to have more jobs or higher wages and higher productivity for Americans?” Miller’s answer: “Well, I think at the end of the day, President Trump has been clear that he is a pro-high-wage President. He ran as a pro-high-wage candidate, and that's what this policy will accomplish.”
“…immigration policy, both legal and illegal, over the last several decades has had a deleterious impact on African American employment in general, and certainly African American males that has been quite tragic. And we, as a country, have to have a conversation about that.”
“Public support is so immense on this—if you just look at the polling data in many key battleground states across the country—that over time you're going to see massive public push for this kind of legislation.”
Immigration Is Related To Everything
“Because immigration affects every aspect of our lives. It affects our schools, our hospitals, our working conditions, our labor market, our tax base, our communities, and it's a deeply personal issue for Americans.”
“…you have automation that is replacing a lot of jobs in the United States…”
When asked about statistics, Miller refers to George Borjas, Peter Kirsanow of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission and Steve Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies. When the reporter brings up the National Academies of Sciences, Miller is already ready, quoting a figure from the group himself.
Statue Of Liberty
Ebb And Flow
Miller explained how immigration levels have risen and fallen through the years.
Putting Congress On The Spot
“…members of Congress will have a choice to make. They can either vote with the interests of U.S. citizens and U.S. workers, or they can vote against their interests…”
Government Accountable To Our Own People
“Our question as a government is, to whom is our duty? Our duty is to U.S. citizens and U.S. workers to promote rising wages for them.”
And there you have it readers. The information and ideas shared on the internet by VDARE.COM are getting into the mainstream and are in a position to actually shape public policy.
But it’s not time to rest on our laurels. If you agree with the RAISE Act, start hounding your senators and representatives, and start educating the public.
