Washington Post Writer: Solve Inflation With MORE Immigration

Suggests that further problems will occur not with “too many immigrants” but rather “too few”

A Washington Post columnist suggested Monday that the magic solution to rampant inflation and supply chain impediments would be to allow more illegal immigrants into the country.

Catherine Rampell wrote a piece titled that “Democrats are missing the bigger immigration issue,” noting that “Democrats are terrified that a coming border surge might tank their midterm chances.”

She then went on to suggest that problems will occur not with “too many immigrants” but rather “too few.”

Rampell claims, without any evidence or authority, that inflation will start to recede if there are more migrants “who can fill critical labor-market shortages.”

She writes, “The United States is experiencing inflationary levels not seen in four decades. Americans are unhappy, and they are more than five times as likely to cite “inflation,” “cost of living” or the economy in general than immigration as the nation’s biggest problem. These economic concerns are, however, rooted at least partly in immigration policy.”

Rampell continues, “there remains huge demand among foreign-born workers to contribute to the U.S. economy,” adding “the many businesses that rely on these workers are losing critical staff, making inflation worse.” 

She concludes that more immigration will only benefit Americans financially “and, by extension, Democrats’ political fortunes.”

Of course, the notion that supply chain problems are solely to blame for inflation is moronic.

As Harvard economist and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers has repeatedly pointed out, inflation is a direct cause of the Federal Reserve being “behind the curve” on interest rates and the Biden Administration’s massive increase in spending, including the $1.9-trillion covid-relief legislation.

As we noted yesterday,  Biden intends to scrap the Title 42 public health authority, which border officials have estimated will increase the number of immigrants traveling to the border three fold to 18,000 per day.

Appearing on CBS News, former DHS head Jeh Johnson warned that “Numbers at these levels are difficult to handle on the southern border,” adding “Communities on the southern border, catholic charities, the volunteers, difficult to absorb these types of numbers under almost any scenario.”

Arizona GOP Rep. Andy Biggs warned that numbers will be even higher than estimated, suggesting that 20,000 to 30,000 could surge the border every day if Title 42 is scrapped.

“I think this is a political ploy, it’s meant to happen. They campaigned on an open border,” Biggs stated, warning“If you think it’s bad now, the tsunami that’s coming is going to be overwhelming.”

    Chaos: Moroccan Fans Celebrate World Cup Win by Rioting in European Cities

    Belgium and the Netherlands hit with violent unrest.

    Moroccan football fans celebrated their World Cup win over Belgium by staging chaotic riots in numerous different European cities.

    Diversity continues to be a strength.

    Morocco beat Belgium 2-0 in Group F yesterday, which many regarded as a shock result given the quality of the Belgian team.

    Whereas some would expect the result to have prompted friendly and good-natured celebrations, Moroccans used it as an excuse to loot shops, burn vehicles and attack police stations in Belgium and neighboring Holland.

    Multicultural Belgium is home to around 500,000 Moroccans, some of whom reacted to their team victory by rampaging through the streets.

    “Police deployed tear gas to disperse fans following the victory, but rioting went on into the evening, resulting in a number of additional vehicles being set on fire,” reports ReMix News.

    Eight people were arrested in Antwerp, while police in Brussels were forced to deploy water cannons and tear gas in an attempt to quell the rioting.

    However, the unrest was not limited to Belgium. Over the border in the Netherlands, vehicles were torched in Amsterdam and rioters in Rotterdam attacked police with fireworks, causing multiple injuries.

    “I condemn in the strongest terms the incidents of this afternoon,” said Brussels’ mayor, Philippe Close.

    “The police have already firmly intervened. I therefore advise against fans coming to the city center. The police are doing all they can to maintain public order. I have ordered the police to carry out arrests of the troublemakers,” he added.

    Another clip shows a violent mob attacking an ambulance.

    “This was not a party,” said Claire Martens, VVD party chairman in Amsterdam. “These are guys who think they are in charge of the streets and not the police. We cannot accept that. Why did the (authorities) intervene so late? How are we going to prevent this next week?”

    As we previously highlighted, migrant youths also reacted to the lockdown in Belgium by staging riots.

    The most popular name for newborn babies in the de facto EU capital of Brussels is Mohamed, with Islamic names making up 43 per cent of total registrations in the Belgian city.

    Earlier this year, Belgian leftist leader Conner Rousseau caused alarm amongst his own political allies after admitting that multiculturalism had failed.

    That Ain’t It, Chief

    A deal that’s guaranteed to fail.

    Published

    on

    Rishi’s “deal” with France to stop illegal boat migrants is guaranteed to fail.

    What incentivize does France have to stop them leaving their country?

    The only solution is get out of ECHR and process asylum claims on neutral territory at a snail’s pace.

    That will disincentivize economic migrants from attempting to cross.
