Construction company owner says labor shortage means he's paying up to $20 an hour to workers who have 'no idea' how to do the job

Can anyone figure out the easy solution? Because Biden certainly can't!

For once Harris does something other than agree with Biden:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/kamala-harris-appeared-contradict-biden-044356230.html

Quote
Vice President Kamala Harris commented on the verdict in Kyle Rittenhouse's homicide trial, suggesting it showed the criminal justice system is not equitable, apparently contradicting President Joe Biden's remarks.

In a tweet Friday evening, the vice president and former prosecutor said: "Today's verdict speaks for itself. I've spent a majority of my career working to make our criminal justice system more equitable. It's clear, there's still a lot more work to do."

While Harris' comments seemed to condemn the outcome of the trial, Biden had stood by the jury's decision earlier Friday.

"I stand by what the jury has concluded. The jury system works and we have to abide by it," Biden told reporters on the White House lawn.

She is still useless, though. What is "more work"? Be specific! Of course her aim is to avoid specifics as much as possible so that no work is actually done.

Never mind present-day Red politicians, even Biden is probably more rightist than Reagan:

Many Americans do not want the US to become economically dwarfed by China in the future, which is understandable. Surely the most obvious way for the US to maintain proportionate economic clout compared to China is for the US to have a population (and hence consumption base) comparable to that of China, which it could trivially attain by welcoming ~1 billion immigrants.

Quote
US immigration policy played a role in crash that killed more than 50 migrants in Mexico
...
Recently, the Biden Administration was forced to reinstate the Migrant Protection Protocols, better known as Remain In Mexico, which requires asylum seekers to remain in Mexico as they apply and wait for their asylum cases to be heard.

This goes against international and federal law and the principle of non-refoulement – the policy of not returning refugees and asylum seekers who would face danger or severe insecurity if returned to their country of origin. But while the Biden administration was required to reinstate the policy, it also expanded it to include all migrants from the Western Hemisphere, most notably Haiti.
...
We have also known that Mexico cannot handle these populations, as the Mexican civil society and U.S. advocates have repeatedly reminded us.

These are the tired, the weak, the hungry and the brave. These are children and mothers who want nothing more than an education, a safe place to sleep, work and live their lives.

We know that these families are coming. I reiterate my call to this administration to partner with Canada and Mexico to find a humane and safe way to process migrants and let them make their asylum cases safely from the United States. It is their legal right to do so.

Surely, death by trailer tractor is not what we want for people who will risk everything just to make an honest living. There has to be a better way.

Quote
President Biden is making the same mistake President Obama made in his first term: catering to xenophobes while performing compassion toward immigrants.

The strategy lays out the red carpet for Trumpism 2.0.
...
Obama tried and failed. By ramping up deportations to historic levels while claiming he was focused on felons, he conflated immigration with criminality in the average mind. Nativists then used his decision not to deport Dreamers — people brought to the U.S. as children — to paint him as an open-borders president.

No matter what Biden does, Republicans will attack his policies as “open borders.” No matter how few people make it to the U.S., Fox News will send cameras to conjure a border apocalypse. Neither Biden nor the Democrats can control that. What they can control is whether they take the bait by playing into and promoting anti-immigrant panic.

This is what I have been saying. If rightists demand ending immigration, never reduce immigration, because this sends the message that the rightists offer an undiluted version of what you yourself have endorsed (but are only offering diluted). Instead, if rightists demand ending immigration, the correct leftist response is to further increase immigration. This sends the message that rightist opinions deserve nothing but active derision, which is the truth.

Quote
On Tuesday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas took the bait during a visit to the San Ysidro Port of Entry, insisting: “I cannot communicate this message too strongly: that individuals should not put their life savings in the hands of smuggling organizations.” He added: “The border is not open.”

The statement stood in absurd contrast to his celebration minutes earlier of the port of entry’s reopening to non-essential travel for foreign tourists. He defended the continued use of a Trump-era public health rule to expel most asylum seekers. Apparently, only people fleeing persecution can bring COVID to the U.S.

Mayorkas insisted that the administration is committed to “respecting the dignity” of asylum seekers. He blamed the reinstatement of another Trump policy, “Remain in Mexico,” on a court order and said the program — which has resulted in hundreds of **** and kidnapping of asylum seekers in Mexico — “does not reflect our values as a country.” Yet the administration has chosen to expand the program to include Haitian asylum seekers, which goes beyond the Trump policy.

About Mayorkas:

Cowardice and a lack of imagination are to blame for Democrats’ failure to come up with a cohesive counter-narrative to Republicans’ fearmongering.

The cohesive counter-narrative is simple:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/issues/demographic-blueshift/

What Reds fear is that immigration will make it harder for them to win elections.

Quote
Rather than pressing Biden about his promise to protect millions of undocumented essential workers and community members, many reporters are following the Fox News formula of fixating on the numbers at the border. This spring, Media Matters for America found that Fox News steadily drove the border-crisis narrative, which cable networks CNN and MSNBC then seemed to adopt.
...
Republicans understand that whoever controls the narrative controls the agenda. On that, they have benefited enormously from media outlets actively normalizing anti-immigrant hysteria.

We already know who owns the media:

Opinion: Humanitarian path needed to solve immigration crisis
...
Undocumented immigrants in the United States face restriction and racism through policy and detention centers. The public often supports this type of policy and centers through anti-immigration rhetoric based upon baseless claims, such as the exaggerated claims on undocumented immigrant employment. Lawyer and immigration detentions researcher Danielle C. Jefferies writes in the Indiana Law Journal, “…the U.S. immigration system is the largest in the world… Nearly 400,000 people are incarcerated under the government’s immigration detention authority each year.”

In the U.S., many undocumented immigrants who have not committed crimes are sent to live in detention centers, often run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or private prisons. Many private prisons whose purpose is to detain undocumented immigrants often earn huge profits. Jeffries adds, “…a similar two-thirds of all people in the government’s civil custody for migration-related reasons are living behind the walls of a prison constructed to generate income and turn a profit for its shareholders.”

Another interesting point raised by Jeffries is the unconstitutionality of the private prison system spired on by the harsh treatment of undocumented immigrants in these detention systems. Jeffries highlights, “The inability of people in for-profit immigration confinement to hold their jailers constitutionally accountable undermines the constitutional value of dignity.”

Similarly, ICE facilities do not uphold the constitutional value of dignity. In an inspection of four detention centers, the Department of Homeland Security holds standards that require health and safety, detainee care, activities and grievance systems (as cited in Congressional Digest, 2021, p. 7). After the inspection, the Department of Homeland Security ruled that each of the four facilities violated ICE’s detention standards, "Our inspection of the four detention facilities revealed violations of ICE’s detention standards and raised concerns about the environment in which ICE holds detainees in these facilities."

Not only do undocumented immigrants face rough conditions in ICE and for-profit detention centers, but harsh policies in states such as Arizona and Alabama are also a scary reality even outside of jail cells. Author of Killing the American Dream Pilar Marrero highlights the Arizona Law or SB 1070 which allows police to utilize racial and ethnic profiling in confirming immigration status. This portion of SB 1070 encourages discrimination and fear of undocumented immigrants. Another Arizona law, Proposition 200, prevents undocumented immigrants from receiving public services.
...
The refugee population from the southern border worldwide and immigrants who are seeking a better life deserve to be treated from a humanitarian perspective. National security is important, but the United States must extend our values of freedom, the pursuit of happiness, and justice to these vulnerable populations.

Immigration reform has long been promised, but undelivered. Twelve million undocumented immigrants are currently in the United States. There needs to be reformation that allows for a path to citizenship and assimilation. The cost to deport one immigrant is $23,000. It is extremely expensive to deport undocumented immigrants, and it does not solve the recurring illegal entry into the United States. Protests and movements such as the Dream Act are just the beginning of immigration reform. It is crucial to recognize the role of the United States on the world stage and to approach immigration reform not as punishing criminals, but as a promoter of humanitarianism.

It is important to educate and bring awareness to the stereotypes and dramatized fear of immigrants, and recognize immigrants’ positive contributions to the U.S. for years. Americans are incredibly blessed to be protected by a Constitution that values freedom and prosperity. Immigrants from all over the world come to the U.S. for refuge, economic prosperity, and higher quality of life. Immigrants, including my family from Germany, trusted America to offer them the pursuit of happiness and freedom. The only solution to the immigration crisis is acceptance of the mistakes and a collaborative policy that stays true to our immigrant roots.

White House issues damning statement against Joe Manchin
Quote
In a remarkable statement after Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said he would not vote for President Joe Biden's Build Back Better Act, the White House said Manchin's comments were "at odds with his discussions this week with the President, with White House staff, and with his own public utterances." CNN's Joe Johns and Suzanne Malveaux discuss the fallout of the senator's decision. #CNN #News

Quote
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken discussed the possibility of Indonesia normalizing diplomatic relations with Israel in meetings with officials in Jakarta last week, Israeli officials say.
...
The Biden administration is trying to build on the Trump-era Abraham Accords, and in this case, looking beyond the Middle East to the largest of the countries that don't recognize Israel.
...
Flashback: Indonesia was one of the countries the Trump administration tried to bring into the Abraham Accords, but the negotiations hadn't matured by the time Trump’s term ended.

Please, someone assassinate Biden now. (As a bonus, it will ensure he doesn't try to run in 2024.)

Reminder:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antony_Blinken

Quote
Blinken was born on April 16, 1962, in Yonkers, New York, to Ashkenazi Jewish parents, Judith (Frehm) and Donald M. Blinken, who later served as U.S. Ambassador to Hungary.[5][6][7] His maternal grandparents were Hungarian Jews.[8]
...
Blinken has asserted that "[Biden] would not tie military assistance to Israel to things like annexation or other decisions by the Israeli government with which we might disagree".[100] Blinken praised the Trump administration-brokered normalization agreements between Israel and Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.[101][102]
...
Blinken is in favor of continuing non-nuclear sanctions against Iran and described it as "a strong hedge against Iranian misbehavior in other areas".[101]

Santa struggled this holiday season: He was short of elves.

Our ports didn’t have enough workers to unload the ships that were stuck offshore full of gifts. Trucking companies couldn’t find enough drivers to deliver the goods. Stores needed shelf-stockers. Restaurants couldn’t hire enough cooks.

And yet, to our south, thousands of people clamored to get into the country to do jobs like these.

Our response, year after year? We spend millions of dollars trying to keep them out.
...
People in Central America save money from meager incomes to finance their trips, sometimes paying criminal gangs to help them. They face abuse and even death on their trips. If they don’t get in or are deported, they often try again and again. Then they live on society’s fringes, doing jobs Americans don’t want, to send money to relatives back home. They attend church. And they have been shown to commit fewer violent crimes than American citizens — perhaps because they are too busy working.
...
We need to find a legal way to admit the resourceful, hard-working people our labor force needs. We ought to pay them fair wages, allow them better living conditions and let them stop hiding.

Never forget that Biden is further to the right on this issue than Reagan was - this is how far to the right everything has shifted since the Counterculture era ended:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_Reform_and_Control_Act_of_1986

Quote
Upon signing the act at a ceremony held beside the newly-refurbished Statue of Liberty, Reagan said, "The legalization provisions in this act will go far to improve the lives of a class of individuals who now must hide in the shadows, without access to many of the benefits of a free and open society. Very soon many of these men and women will be able to step into the sunlight and, ultimately, if they choose, they may become Americans."[2]
...
In 1987, Reagan used his executive authority to legalize the status of minor children of parents granted amnesty under the immigration overhaul,[5] announcing a blanket deferral of deportation for children under 18 who were living in a two-parent household with both parents legalizing or with a single parent who was legalizing.[6] That action affected an estimated 100,000 families.
...
Nearly three million people applied for legalization under the IRCA.[7] There were two groups of applicants. Aliens who had been unlawfully residing in the United States since before January 1, 1982 (pre-1982 immigrants) were legalized under Section 245A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) while Aliens employed in seasonal agricultural work for a minimum of 90 days in the year prior to May, 1986 (SAWs) were legalized under Section 210A of the INA. Nearly 2.7 million people were ultimately approved for permanent residence.
