Trump’s Immigration Ban Exempts “Refugees” & “Essential Workers”

While President Trump’s immigration ban was celebrated by many of his supporters, it has since emerged that the draft executive order contains broad exemptions for “refugees,” “essential workers” and a number of other categories of people.

“In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!” Trump tweeted last night.

The news was greeted with massive enthusiasm from Trump’s base, some of whom feel he hasn’t done enough to fulfil his campaign promise of building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants.

However, it has now been revealed that there are a number of caveats.

Bloomberg News reports that the EO “includes exceptions for people seeking jobs in “food production and directly helping to protect the supply chain,” which could apply to farm workers.”

Refugees and asylum seekers will continue to be allowed to enter America, along with “spouses and children of U.S. citizens or permanent residents.”

Exemptions also apply for people considered “essential workers” as well as “any alien whose entry would be in the national interest.”

The draft executive order doesn’t have a start date but will expire 90 days after being implemented.

“With over 22 million Americans out of work and polls shifting dramatically in support for strict travel bans, restricting immigration has never been an easier sell,” comments Chris Menahan. “While Trump’s rhetoric was nice, if these massive carve-outs remain then rhetoric is all we’re going to get.”

Danish Immigration Minister Admits Integration Policy is a “Fiasco”

Only 17% of Syrian women have jobs 5 years after moving to the country.

Denmark’s immigration minister has admitted that his country’s integration policy is a “fiasco,” noting that just 17 per cent of Syrian women are in work 5 years after moving to the country.

Mattias Tesfaye, himself the son of an Ethiopian immigrant father, drew attention to the statistic which is featured in a new integration report that reveals less than half of Syrian men have found employment after the same time period of being in Denmark.

“Unfortunately, we cannot afford to be surprised. When we pursue the same integration policy, then we also get the same results,” said Tesfaye, noting that immigrants from countries such as Thailand, the Philippines, and China do far better than Middle Eastern migrants.

“It is no longer a matter of ramping the transfers up and down. Or amending some points in immigration policy. It is about changing the requirements for newcomers who will begin their lives in Denmark,” said Tesfaye.

To tackle the issue, the Danish government will no longer offer newly arrived “refugees” social security benefits. Instead they will immediately have to find a job or be enrolled in a 37 hour a week integration program.

Noting that the policy must be based around the fact that some immigrants integrate better than others, Tesfaye vowed to send migrants back as soon as their home country was deemed to be safe.

“The new thing now is that we will also demand a return trip. Refugees must return home when there is peace in their home country. I hope that Syrians will be the first group where temporary residence really means temporary residence.”

Years prior to the 2015 influx of “refugees” from the Middle East, German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted that the country’s attempts to create a multicultural society had “utterly failed.”

She then proceeded to open the floodgates to around 2 million migrants who headed to Europe.

Some of those migrants contributed to soaring violent crime and sexual assault rates, while terror attacks such as the Paris massacre were also directly connected to the open border policy.

Trump: “Tiny” Private Border Wall “Only Done To Make Me Look Bad”

“Should have been built like rest of Wall, 500 plus miles.”

President Trump issued a statement Sunday claiming that a small section of border wall that has been privately funded and constructed was “only done to make me look bad”.

Trump responded to reports of the wall section going up along the Rio Grande Valley of southern Texas:

Reports indicate that the wall section was put up by a group calling itself We Build the Wall.

The group raised $25 million on the back of promises to reduce drug trafficking and illegal immigration.

It seems, however, that the wall section isn’t all that good, with reports of it already ‘eroding’ and having to undergo an engineering inspection.

The report linked above indicates that The International Boundary and Water Commission and the National Butterfly Center have brought lawsuits over the wall construction.

President Trump has claimed that 240 miles of new border wall has been constructed since he took office, however that is a far cry from his campaign promise to have built a complete border wall by the end of his first term.

In addition, critics have noted that most of what has gone up is just replacement barriers for old and outdated sections of border fencing that were already there before Trump took office.

U.S. Census Bureau: Whites Under the Age of 16 Now a Minority in America

“This is going to be a diversified century for the United States.”

New data from the U.S. Census Bureau has found that whites under the age of 16 are now a minority in America for the first time since records began.

Asians had the biggest demographic growth rate at 30% over the last ten years – two thirds of that driven by international migration, while the Hispanic population grew by 20% since 2010. The black population grew by 12% over the decade.

Whites grew by just 4.3%, a deficit explained by declining white fertility and a decrease in births. Whites also have a median age of 43.7, which is by far the highest of any demographic group.

Non-Hispanic whites are expected to be an overall minority in America within 25 years.

“We are browning from bottom up in our age structure,” William Frey, a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution, told the Associated Press. “This is going to be a diversified century for the United States, and it’s beginning with this youngest generation.”

The media has framed anyone who discusses the demographic decline of white people in anything other than gushingly positive terms as a racist who is promoting the “conspiracy theory” of “white genocide”.

Debating what kind of impact less white people in society will have on a country is completely off-limits, unless it’s being celebrated.

“If these numbers hold for the 2020 census being conducted right now, it will be the first time since the first decennial census in 1790 that there has been a national decline of whites,” explained Frey.
