Buttigieg: Flood Small American Towns with Immigration to Grow Population

Buttigieg: Flood Small American Towns with Immigration to Grow Population
10 Comments

Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, is touting a new visa program to flood small American towns with legal immigrants to grow the regions’ populations — a boon to corporate investors, housing developers, and big business.  But is saturating small-town America with third-world immigrants whose cultures and upbringing are substandard, a good idea?

During a campaign stop in Merrimack, New Hampshire, Buttigieg touted his investor-friendly plan to inundate small American towns and rural communities with legal immigration for the sole purpose of driving up population growth.

Buttigieg said:

I’m proposing what we call “Community Renewal Visas” that when a community that is very much in need of growing its population, recognizes that, and makes a choice to welcome more than its share of new Americans that we create a fast-track, if they apply for an allotment of visas, that goes to those who are willing to be in those areas that maybe are hurting for population but have great potential.

Buttigieg’s population growth agenda mimics a plan by the Economic Innovation Group, an organization led by investors, that seeks to create a “Heartland Visa” to flood small American towns with more legal immigration to increase the population.

 

More residents in the U.S. through immigration deliver huge returns for Wall Street, big business, developers, and investors who benefit from the addition of millions of new consumers, as well as residents in need of housing and jobs.

For years, investors and the pro-migration lobby have sought to increase the nation’s population via legal immigration to drive up the need for additional housing, which in return provides developers and contractors with a series of new work while increasing housing prices for Americans.

Already, at current legal immigration levels of about 1.2 million admissions a year, the U.S. population is expected to grow to an unprecedented 404 million residents by 2060 — translating to more cars on the road, more urban sprawl, additional housing and commercial development, and increased living density for Americans.

Buttigieg also hinted that he would back Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) S. 386 to ensure that only Indian nationals obtain nearly all of the nation’s employment-based green cards over the next decade. The legislation is a bonus for outsourcing firms such as Cognizant and Infosys, as well as giant tech conglomerates like Amazon and Facebook, as it solidifies a green card system wherein only foreign workers on H-1B visas are able to obtain employment green cards by creating a backlog of seven to eight years for all foreign nationals.

“And so a couple of steps I think would help make [the legal immigration system] better: One is these country caps that exist that create a longer and longer clock on family reunification and other ways to make sure folks can get through that process,” Buttigieg said. “It’s based on numbers that were settled on in the 1980s. It makes no sense. And it has no relationship to our economic reality. So when we have work-based visas, those pathways to come to the country, it should be something that can be revisited and revised every two years in an administrative process instead of literally taking an act of Congress to go clear up.”

There are now 62 million immigrants and their U.S.-born children residing in the country, a record high, and nearly half of the residents in the country’s five largest cities speak another language other than English in their home.

    There is no need for business to import workers. I understand the whole supply-and-demand concept and how in the immediate term flooding the labour pool makes wages fall. On the other hand, having fewer available workers causes wages to rise, which a businessman with a longer-term view understand encourages labour saving technology to develop, allowing business to compete for better labour, resulting in greater worker loyalty and greater output per man-hour.

    The increase in technology also helps smaller companies to compete with the larger ones and get into an industry later in the game.

    All this, of course, presumes a free market. Really, no matter what the question, the answer is always: freedom.

      What about housing for these people? My little town is growing but regular working people can barely afford to rent or buy; plus older houses for rent are raising prices. Like mist crap the Dems come up with, they never think them through.

      we don’t need another gay guy in the White House. Barry was enough. This mini-Manchurian needs to go get a job and gain some experience before taking on the toughest job in the world. Of course all his handlers would just tell him what to say and do. We’ve gotta get Trump re-elected and get someone else strong for next term

        Yes, the housing issue would be part of that too. In a debt economy, there is a need to keep housing prices high, which is also facilitated by net in-migration. However, housing prices should actually be falling and would be had it not been for so much immigration. If you own your home outright, a general fall in prices would just be a paper loss. With lower house values, the loans available to people against houses would be smaller and the tax-assessment base would be less. You can see why some people would not want that.

    I'm taking my earlier remarks even further. I've been forced to now stand against all immigration, legal as well as illegal. We need a moratorium on any and further immigration. We can't afford to keep on taking in people that will be a drain on our tax dollars, people that have no intention of ever becoming citizens, who will never pay into the system, who have bad intentions toward us, etc. They've been told that they don't have to play by any of our rules, don't even have to learn English, but we're expected to provide translators for all of their various native languages, etc. Both Dems and Repubs keep telling us we should have compassion for them! Excuse my language Hal but F**K any compassion for foreigners! I cannot in good conscience have positive feelings for them when I see my own people get discriminated against in employment and everything else in favor of some stinking foreigner. Republicans want them because they're cheaper labor and Democrats want them because they're future democratic voters. I have compassion for my own people but not for foreigners. Go ahead and call me racist, xenophobe, homophobe, islamophobe, etc. I don't care. There's nothing wrong with being American and white. All those people who cry about 'white supremacy and so for the can kiss my white a$$.

      Ah. That sheds some light! They will allow old buzzard Bernie to get nomination but with deal that Butt-guy is his running mate. Bernie will kick the bucket after a short time (if God forbid he wins) then little Peetie takes over. God help us all.

    I don't support any program which displaces and discriminates against Americans. We have at least 11,000,000 of our own people out of work at this time and they're being totally ignored. Companies cry about a 'shortage' of workers. While that's true for a certain minority group there's still plenty of white people willing to work. But Wall St. and the corporate interests want foreigners because they work cheaper. Anyone who supports replacing our people with any foreigners is scum and a traitor to this country. Call me racist, xenophobic, islamophobic; I don't care what the 'progressives' think. I stand up for my own people and there's no wrong in that. Nothing wrong with being white.

    I liked Ron Pauls plan much better. Get rid of the IRS, let people keep their own money and prosper. They Americans living here might be able to afford having their own family. Investing in America means investing in an American family. All they are doing is Importing the 3rd world and all their problems. This results in the dumbing down of America and cheaper labor for Big Business Corporations. What we need is for common sense to prevail. We have technology now, we could cut the entire educational system full of amateur child exploiters and replace it with a system of experts best of the best teachers and homeschool all the kids. Keep mom at home supervising her kids, give her a salary instead from the govt to homeschool her own kids based upon their performance in tests. Let people keep their own money to take care of ageing parents and loved ones. Replace our dependence on China, put a 3d printer metal / plastic printer in every home and a battery of them at public libraries.

    Peter Buttplug translated: We've already turned many of your cities into 3rd world shit holes, to create our new *primitive savage*, Democrat voting demographic, but now we want to do the same thing in rural America. This is so you don't have a place to run, to get away from our forced *cultural enrichment* plan.
    This sneaky Sodomite is a Clinton ringer in the Presidential race. It's already been proven, that he had direct help from both George Soros and Hillary Clinton in the rigged Iowa vote. How else, could a young, broke, nobody mayor from a nowhere town, suddenly show up with both the money and influence to compete for the Democrat nomination? It's simple really, I think the evidence shows he made a deal. If, he's installed as President, he'll almost certainly have picked Hillary as his VP. Once in office, he'll quickly resign and Hillary will be your new President and I think we all know what happens after that.

      Also remember Obama was a nobody one-term absent-for-most-votes senator when he got elected. Being a nobody is apparently good for puppet presidents.

      Definitely agree that this is to a) enrich developers and wall street, b) change the voting demographic of rural towns, c) dilute to the point of obliteration of traditional values, d) channel our tax dollars to struggling towns in order to buy their votes. I'll take MAGA over this any day!

      I don't necessarily agree that HRC will become VP. I think her health is too unstable. But I could easily see a Warren VP. Can't stand to look at or listen to Warren and watch her scrawny finger pointing.

        I think the chances are good, that the Hillary as VP plan is valid. It was leaked awhile back, that if the impeachment had led to President Trump being thrown out of office, they intended to also go after Mike Pence. Afterwards, Pelosi would be installed as President(via line of succession), along with her hand picked VP Hillary. The plan was then to have Pelosi resign and Hillary take over as President.
        As far as Hillary's health, not only is she not dying, she seems to be doing better all the time, in the creepiest sort of way. The Hillary we see now, looks a lot different from the one that ran for President awhile back. I wonder why?

          Grim, a member of Hillary's secret service detail stated back during the 2016 election that she had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Most likely been on some serious medications since then or are we seeing a double?

            Actually, back during the Presidential campaign in 2016, a journalist tracked down her double and attempted to get an interview. Obviously, that didn't happen, but the woman does look a lot like Hillary and lives in New York.

            Whether you know this or not, many rich evil people like Hillary take regular transfusions of blood from kids, which enhances their health. I will leave it up to you, to imagine where the kids come from.
