America’s border czar has laid out the welcome mat for almost 150,000 low-income Cubans, most of them seeking jobs and housing that would otherwise have gone to needy Americans. The number of immigrants is increasing rapidly as Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas exempts more Cubans from the Title 42 ban limiting immigration. The Cuban-born Mayorkas permitted 36,628 Cubans to be admitted into the country in April, up from 16,547 in February and 7,158 in December. The majority of Cubans are working-age adults and can obtain work permits by simply soliciting for asylum, regardless of whether they are considered economic immigrants. The Biden inflow is higher than the 125,000 Cubans who came into the United States in the 1980 “Mariel Boatlift.”
The amount of money flowing into the country is expected to grow following an agreement by Biden's deputy aides to assist Cubans residing in America. The U.S. is to send more cash to their relatives in Cuba. The economic agreement signed on May 16 is a good thing for Cuba's dictatorial regime. Cuba's government will benefit from the economic remittances made to the families of Cuban workers and also export young people who might otherwise organize protests against the government. The agreement will also permit Cuba to send another 20,000 legal immigrants into America, including seniors.
The agreement on transferring populations will be beneficial to U.S. business groups by importing more migrant workers to the low-wage U.S. economy envisaged by Biden's advocates for high migration. The agreement also demonstrates that the Biden Administration won't insist on Cuba's government accepting an unconditional return of Cuban migrants detained at U.S. border crossings. Without a process for return, the only option to keep Cubans from being excluded from the U.S. labor market is to force Mexico's government to prohibit entry or accept all Cubans in the largely unpopular “Stay In Mexico” policy. But the transfer of populations by the elites creates more economic stress on many millions of low-income Americans–with at least 10 million Americans forced out of the workforce.
The influx of Cubans is just one component of the 1.8 million immigrants invited to cross the border since January 2021. This was done under the leadership of President Joe Biden and his deputies in spite of the Title 42 rule. Between January 2021 and April 2022, the government accepted the admission of 70,000 Afghans, 41,000 Ukrainians, 195,000 Venezuelans, 140,000 Nicaraguans, 86,000 Brazilians, 48,000 Ecuadoreans, 64,000 El Salvadoreans, 200 Hondurans, 15,550 Guatemalans, and 53,000 Haitians, as well as many others. Mayorkas is expected to accept at least 100,000 more migrants in May.
The 1.8 million figure doesn't include legal immigrants, visa holders, and the approximately 600,000 who crossed the border illegally or the illegal immigrants who were permitted to remain under Mayorkas’s policies for promoting immigration. The overall flow is bringing more than one immigrant into the United States for every three births.
This is a good thing for the progressives who joined forces with pro-migration business groups. Progressives who seek to change their country from a society controlled by the European-based culture of civic life to a nation of progressives governed by different identities. “We're trying to become the first multiracial, multi-ethnic superpower in the world,” Rep. Rohit Khanna (D-CA) boasted to the New York Times on March 21. “It will be an extraordinary achievement… we will ultimately triumph.”
The influx of Cuban migrants was covered by MSNBC on May 17:
“This is a really dramatic situation, my boy: everyone who can get out of here is doing so,” says a woman waiting her turn to apply for a visa in front of the Mexican consulate in Havana.
Like every other weekday, a crowd has gathered here after making an appointment months ago through the website of the diplomatic mission in the Cuban capital. On the screen of his cellphone, a young man watches a video of fellow Cubans swimming across the Rio Grande to the rhythm of a popular reggaeton song called El campeón (The champion). He says that one of the authors of the song, an artist named Kimiko, has just crossed into the United States through the Mexican border. “He’s already been baptized.”
“Bray Perez, a 19-year-old Cuban university student, is fast losing friends to a growing wave of migration off the island,” Reuters announced on March 17. “Every time I go home, I find that 10 people have left… It's hard to get up in the morning and know I'm not going to see them anymore,” said the student.
The Democrats’ “easy-migration” policy encourages young Cubans to move away from their families. However, older Cubans (including those who are unable to work) are trying to join their children who have grown up as native Americans. For instance, a lady who works at the Mexican consulate in Havana spoke to MSNBC: “My two children left a year ago with their wives for Central America. They are already in Miami, where my first grandson was just born. My mother and sister left after the Special Period [a prolonged economic crisis in the 1990s], so I am all alone.”
Businesses are keen to see sick and elderly individuals move to the United States, if only to increase the use of housing, food, medical services, and government spending.
Mayorkas is an advocate of immigration and insists that Americans don’t have a right to their own country and must instead become a “Nation of Immigrants.” Mayorkas is trying to defend his decision to enslave immigrants to benefit the U.S. economy instead of aiding Cubans in fighting for control of their nation.
On May 19, Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) asked Mayorkas about Biden's discussions with Cuba. He remarked, “I am not involved in discussions with the Cuban regime. And I would respectfully request that you respect my humanity. Because I stand before this committee as an individual member of a family who fled communist Cuba. My father lost so very much and he wanted to raise my sister and me in a democracy and quite frankly, the greatest country in the world. I do not take steps to relax policies against an authoritarian and oppressive regime… I have condemned the oppression against the peaceful protesters on the streets of Cuba.”
“I respect the fact you're here… I hope you'll start enforcing the rule of law,” Scott concluded.
“I don't think [Mayorkas] has a secret pro-Cuban [government] agenda,” Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart News. “But that's the actual effect of his policy.”
Since around 1990, the D.C. establishment has extracted thousands of immigrants and visa-workers from low-income nations to act as legal (and illegal) employees, consumers, temporary workers, and renters for various U.S. investors and chief executives. The strategy for economic growth known as Extraction Migration does not have a limit. It's brutal for ordinary Americans as it limits their career opportunities, reduces their wages and salaries, and increases their housing costs; it has forced more than 10 million American men out of the workforce.
The effects of extraction migration are also detrimental to the economy and limit Americans’ productivity, primarily because they permit employers to utilize stoop labor rather than machines. Migration also decreases the influence of voters on politics, stifles employees' workplace rights, and increases the regional wealth gap between the Democrats in the big coastal states and the Republicans in the southern and heartland states.
