How to Fund Trumps Border Wall While Saving Lives

0

by Steve H Hanke, Market Oracle:

President Trump and Congressional Democrats have decided to enliven the Christmas season with a game of chicken over President Trump’s proposed “border wall.” As a result, the federal government is partly shut down until the issue is resolved.

The President wants $5 billion to start building the wall. Democrats have offered just $1.6 billion. If the problem truly is money and not that the Democrats oppose a wall under any circumstances, there is a place in the federal budget to find all the money the President wants while saving thousands of lives a year in the process.

More than 700,000 Americans are afflicted with kidney failure. Of those, almost 30 percent live with transplant kidneys with the remaining 70 percent on dialysis. Under a 1972 law, the federal government pays for kidney dialysis for every American whose private insurance does not cover treatment. In 2016, the latest year for which data are available, Medicare spent $35.4 billion on patients with kidney failure (read: end stage renal disease).

I wonder why the Western media is ignoring this story?

Trump Proposes Lowest Refugee Admission Ceiling in Decades

0

byPatrick Goodenough , CNSNews:

The Trump administration’s proposed ceiling of 45,000 refugees to be resettled in the United States in the new fiscal year is the lowest cap set since the Refugee Act was passed in 1980.

 

On Wednesday the administration sent to Congress a report on its refugee admission plans for FY 2018. The 45,000 ceiling is a 59 percent drop from the 110,000 cap set by the Obama administration a year ago for FY 2017. (President Trump’s January 27 executive order lowered that to 50,000.)

 

Since the law signed by President Carter in 1980 raised the annual ceiling from 17,400 to 50,000, the lowest cap until now was 67,000, set by the Reagan administration for FY 1986.

Actual admissions have often fallen below the ceiling set for that year, a pattern especially evident during the years immediately following 9/11.

In FY 2002 and 2003, the Bush administration admitted far fewer refugees than the 70,000 ceiling it set for each year.

In FY 2002, only 27,131 refugees were resettled, 61 percent fewer than the ceiling figure. In FY 2003 admissions rose slightly to 28,403, still 59 percent fewer than the ceiling.

 

A senior administration official said Wednesday that the aim in FY 2018 would be to admit refugee numbers as close to the ceiling as possible.

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Failure of Europe’s Open Door Policy: Denmark consigns ‘unwanted’ migrants to small island

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

The Danish government will not admit it, but by its decision to send (an initial) 100 “unwanted” migrants to a small island, Copenhagen effectively admits that its open door policy to mainly Muslim “migrants” and “refugees” is a failure.

According to a Danish-language report (Google Translate here) on the Danish government’s Immigration and Integration Ministry website uim.dk, which was last updated on December 4, 2018, the Danish government and the Danish People’s Party have signed an agreement on the Finance Act for 2019with “a number of initiatives” concerning refugees and migrants.

How the SHTF in Bosnia: Selco Asks Americans, “Does this sound familiar?”

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

I was recently emailing back and forth with Selco and we were discussing the situation in the US right now, with the political polarization, the rage, and the general cognitive dissonance. I asked him if he saw any similarities between our situation and the one in Bosnia when the SHTF there during the war. When he replied I knew I had to share this information with you.

While we might like to think it could never happen here, the current events here are eerily similar to what happened there in the 1990s.

Texas Sends State Law Enforcement to Rio Grande After Federal Agencies Fail to Secure Border

0

from 21st Century Wire:

Since the inauguration of Joe Biden as President, the surge of migrants arriving at the Texas-Mexico border has pushed the country’s immigration system to breaking point. The White House policy of openly inviting both undocumented immigrants and alleged asylum seekers through an open border has driven the situation to a crippling humanitarian crisis.

To add to the fiasco, tens of thousands of Haitians have joined migrant caravans from Central America and are now camped at a Texas border. The Biden Administration was then forced to announce that Haitians would have to be flown back to their country in a desperate effort to try and prevent others from crossing the border from Mexico.

Belgian Senator: Multiculturalist Elites Manipulated Stats to Transform Society with Mass Migration

by Virginia Hale, Breitbart:

Elites brought about a “profound transformation” of Belgian society without any public debate by manipulating immigration figures as more than one million migrants poured in, a liberal senator has alleged.

Writing in Le Figaro, Alain Destexhe said the realities of demographic change are being concealed across Europe by “the multiculturalist lobby which dominates universities, NGOs, public institutions and the media”.

“Like France, Belgium has changed dramatically in a relatively short time, and was transformed into a mass immigration nation without any public debate,” he said, noting that its population rose from 10.2 million to 11.3 million in a relatively short period as a result of mass migration.

Between 2000 and 2010, Belgium’s net migration figures ran “nine times higher than in the Netherlands, four times higher than in France and Germany, and even greater than in the U.S.” in proportion to the nation’s size.

“Yet this statistical reality has been concealed from the population,” writes Destexhe, a doctor who spent a decade serving regions struck by war and natural disaster, and was appointed Médecins Sans Frontières’s first secretary-general.

“Because it’s a given that mass migration must be forced on Belgium, the elites and the media who decide what people are allowed to talk about are careful not to reveal statistics that would cause alarm,” he said.

In his essay for the French broadsheet, the Reformist Movement senator details a number of methods by which he says immigration data is manipulated to keep Belgians in the dark, and thereby prevent any open debate over the “exponential consequences” migration is having on the small country’s demographics.

“Even Eurostat, the EU’s official statistics agency, blithely mixes data and ideology,” he said, pointing to its annual immigration reports, which claim mass migration is “good for Europe” and that the continent needs more of it.

Migration figures are almost always presented as annual flow, and the media “heavily emphasises” decreases in immigrant numbers compared to the previous year, while downplaying increases.

“A 10- or 20-year statistic would never be used,” Destexhe remarks, also noting that — with “a procession of bureaucrats and lobbyists” working in EU capital Brussels — the  year-on-year figures in which data is presented allows the media to “create the false impression that most immigrants to Belgian are European”.
