Quote
More than 280 immigration, faith-based and rights groups sent a letter to the Biden administration on Friday asking it not to send Haitian migrants interdicted at sea to Guantanamo Bay or a third-party country.
...
The groups who signed the letter, led by the Haitian Bridge Alliance, urged the Biden administration to instead allow Haitians to be removed from dangerous vessels at sea and taken to the U.S. to claim asylum.

“We call on your administration to prioritize protections for Haitian nationals. This includes halting returns and expulsions to Haiti given the life-threatening conditions there. The administration must not under any circumstances send asylum seekers and migrants to the notorious Guantánamo Bay or other offshore detention locations,” the groups said.

The letter said sending migrants to the Migrant Operations Center at Guantanamo Bay, which operates separately from the prison for suspected terrorists, would repeat policies of the 1990s that kept migrants in poor conditions. Reports from the time, which are cited in the letter, included migrants being given cardboard boxes rather than cribs for their babies to sleep.

“Your administration should not add yet another chapter to the shameful U.S. history of mistreatment and racism toward Haitian people seeking protection, including those forced to take to the seas,” the letter said.

They also said sending migrants to a third country, rather than allowing them into the U.S. to claim asylum, would be repeating Trump administration policies, such as those that sent migrants to Guatemala.

“The Biden administration should reject the prior administration’s approach, which made a travesty of the U.S. commitment to non-refoulment, subverted international law and encouraged other countries to pursue similarly dangerous and inhumane asylum offshoring and detention agreements,” the letter said.

The groups said those policies disparately punished Black asylum seekers. Similar criticism arose in September 2021 after the Biden administration began mass deportations of Haitian asylum seekers who crowded by the thousands under an international bridge in Del Rio, Texas.

Quote
The Biden administration is considering the revival of a Trump-era policy that places limits on which immigrants may claim asylum after crossing into the country illegally, according to multiple reports.
...
Mirroring endeavors that were embraced by the Trump administration to curb the massive influx of migrants at the southern border, the plan reflects the transit ban that was pushed by Stephen Miller, who served as a senior adviser to former President Donald Trump and spearheaded several immigration efforts during his tenure in the White House.

The Trump-era plan, which faced scrutiny from immigration advocates, sought to prevent migrants from claiming asylum in the United States if they did not seek the same protections in other countries.

This was from the r/neoliberal sub. They criticize Biden for being a social democrat. I actually agree with them, because social democracy is a racist nordicist system, which they seem to implicitly recognize as the sub is pro open borders.

Regarding Clinton, I agree that she would have been much better than Biden. Her "basket of deplorable" comment really showed her willingness to challenge democracy. And if we consider Bill Clinton's anti-democratic policies of increasing immigration (diluting the demos), improving relationships with China, and bombing Yugoslavia, it makes all the more sense. Biden, on the other hand, is a true democrat,  which is no surprise considering he is an ethnonepotist.

This is why I support neoliberalism over social democracy. Neoliberalism is a step in the right direction to True Leftism, because it is not explicitly democratic.

What do you think?

I also follow the sub simply because they have good opinions on immigration, but they are still very pro democracy and pro western. They believe in the ‘end of history’, which argues western liberal democracy will be the final form of government for all nations. This is western supremacy and the complete opposite of what we want. They are also anti-China and pro-Israel. So I’m not holding out many hopes on them, I have more faith in the ‘far’ left even if some of them currently identify as marxists/commies. It’s annoying because both sides hold positions of the true-left, but they still diverge on very important issues.

But I do agree that Clinton would have been better than Biden, both because of her own character and her husband’s influence. Like you said, she was far tougher on Trump and his supporters than Biden who’s more apathetic. If she had been elected this time around, she would’ve had Trump and many of his supporters jailed (obviously we would want them all executed and their bloodlines purged, but at least he would find it harder to create trouble). She would’ve also had a tougher line on Russia, perhaps even military intervention.

The reason why I supported Clinton in 2016 is not because I thought she herself was any good, but because a Trump 2016 loss (underperforming the expected pattern of a Red victory after two Blue terms) would have convinced the Red establishment that the reason why Trump lost was because he was too close to the Alt-Right. From there, the Red establishment would have rejected Alt-Right ideas for many terms to come, thus evading the current scenario of the Alt-Right taking over Red politics with Red politicians convinced into the indefinite future that they be at least as close to the Alt-Right as Trump was just to stand a chance. In short, a Clinton 2016 victory would have put the US down a completely different political trajectory than the one it has taken.

Prior to Trump, Red politicians liked to claim Reagan as an influence. I am fine with that:

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

We wanted a US where both parties welcome refugees, but merely debate over which party has the better management approach to welcoming them (e.g. relying on the private sector to help them (Red) vs the government helping them directly (Blue)). This would have been a US well-positioned to face the climate refugee challenge that is now upon us. We were almost there before Trump turned up:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWBbtnzP1dk

We only needed Clinton to defeat Trump in 2016, and all could have gone according to plan. Instead Trump won in 2016, and now in 2022 we have Biden listening to:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/enemies/stephen-miller/

But even if Clinton had run in 2020 instead of Biden and won, I am sure she would be listening to Miller now too!

(Finally, let us never forget that Trump 2016 was merely modelling himself after Orban. This is why Hungary must be nuked before the world can return to sanity.)

Yeah the sub actually criticizes some of Bill Clintons policies such as allowing China into the WTO because China is not democratic. This shows that Bill is actually closer to the True Left than the average neoliberal. As for Hillary, I am aware that her positions on immigrations have shifted to the right since.

As for the sub itself being pro democracy, I think expanding the franchise to "third world" immigrants actually destabilizes democracy by diluting the demos. So it would be more accurate to call them suffragists.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has emerged as one of the brightest young stars of the Democratic Party and is installed at +1,600. AOC is currently serving as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing New York’s 14th district.

The politically savvy 31-year-old has built a massive online following and will be turning the requisite age of presidential eligibility just before the 2024 election.

So basically the female version of Bernie Sanders (Jew). Oh well, at least it's better than Biden. Then again, as with Sanders, we are not so much interested in the candidate themselves as we are in the direction they are taking the Democratic party.

Biden only ever listens to the rightist narrative. Meanwhile back in reality:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2022/12/15/immigration-reform-congress-worker-shortage/

Quote
Trump, covid slowed down immigration. Now employers can’t find workers.

Economists estimate that ‘two years of lost immigration’ is responsible for close to half of the 3.5 million workers missing from the labor force

Alonzo Arteaga’s title is general manager of a small hotel in Topeka, Kan. But these days, he doubles as a housekeeper, making beds, vacuuming floors and laundering towels to fill an ever-worsening worker shortage.

Like other businesses around the country, Senate Luxury Suites is struggling to keep going without critical employees. The hotel is down to three housekeepers, half the number it had before the pandemic, and Arteaga blames a years-long immigration slowdown, which he says has made an already tough situation worse.

“It’s been three years of trying absolutely everything,” said Arteaga, who has raised pay by about $3 an hour and offers discounted monthly rates to employees. “It feels like the workers really aren’t there.”

A shortfall of immigrants is worsening widespread labor shortages and hobbling the U.S. economy at a time when more than 10 million jobs remain unfilled, particularly in low-paying and physically demanding industries such as hospitality, agriculture, construction and health care.

While the slowdown in legal immigration began well before the pandemic, the covid-19 crisis intensified the process as the Trump administration effectively halted the flow of foreign-born workers into the United States. Although immigration has rebounded somewhat since then, particularly in the last six months, major shortages remain, rippling through the economy at a time when the labor force is also missing workers from early retirements, ongoing health problems and caregiving challenges. Labor force shortages are also contributing to higher prices for some goods and services, as companies raise wages to compete for a smaller pool of workers and to keep existing staff.
...
By one estimate, the United States is shy of about 1.7 million legal immigrants based on pre-pandemic migration trends, according to Giovanni Peri, director of the Global Migration Center at the University of California at Davis.

Even though immigration rates have picked up in recent months, Peri says it could be another four years before the country makes up for current shortfalls. Even then, it won’t be enough to catch up to the rapidly aging workforce that is projected to leave millions more positions unfilled.
...
“There is no question: We need more immigration,” said Adam Ozimek, chief economist at Economic Innovation Group, a nonpartisan business organization. “Immigrants aren’t just workers, they are particularly flexible, mobile workers, who help address acute labor shortages wherever they emerge. And that’s particularly important in this constrained economy we’re facing right now.”

Visas for college students and highly skilled science and tech workers have bounced back relatively quickly, Peri said. But immigration rates for people without a college education have been slower to make up for lost ground.

“If someone doesn’t have much education and doesn’t have a close relative in the U.S., there is virtually no legal pathway for them to get a green card,” said Watson of Williams College. “There is a pool of untapped talent out there.”

The drop-off in foreign workers began soon after Donald Trump took office, largely on an anti-immigrant platform. Although his administration didn’t make legislative changes, it slowed down visa processing through “a culture of extreme vetting and extreme delays” that was enough to deter immigration in all forms, especially among those without college educations, Peri said.
...
Early in the pandemic, Mariama Lowe lost nearly three-quarters of the employees at her home health-care business in Alexandria, Va., to covid illnesses, career changes and early retirements. She’s since gone from 100 nurses and personal care aides — almost all of them immigrants — to 27.

“We’re in a very difficult position, because there is nobody to hire anymore,” Lowe said. “Tech companies can go recruit from anywhere; they have all of these avenues available to them. But a home health agency like me? I don’t have that opportunity. I just have to go with whoever’s here and whoever’s available. And right now, it’s not a lot.”

Beyond creating wider avenues for immigrants to enter the country, business owners, economists and policymakers say there also needs to be a focus on retaining foreign-born workers already in the United States. That includes “dreamers,” undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as young children; recently laid-off tech workers on H1-B visas who may have to leave the country if they don’t find new work within 60 days; and the adult children of highly educated legal immigrants awaiting permanent residency.
...
In Napa Valley, Calif., grape growers can’t find the immigrant workers they once relied on to cultivate the region’s hallowed vineyards. Many farmworkers have retired to their native villages in central Mexico, vineyard managers said, and millennial and Gen Z workers never arrived to fill their shoes.

“A younger generation from Mexico never came,” said Michael Wolf, a vineyard manager for nearly 50 years in Napa Valley. “A lot of [vineyards] are struggling. People are using local farm labor contractors to transport workers to Napa from Stockton a couple hours a day in each direction. But that’s not sustainable.”
...
Little Bear Produce, which grows 5,000 acres of greens, onions, cabbages and melons on the Mexico border, in Edinburg, Tex. “We’ve been struggling with labor shortages for decades, but now it’s come to a crisis point. The labor force has completely dried up.”

He would’ve liked to have planted 15 percent more crops this year but says labor constraints made that impossible. Little Bear has begun using temporary workers from Mexico to fill in employment gaps, though it’s so costly that it’s become difficult for the company to keep turning a profit. The family-run business is also doubling down on automation and investing in machines that can wash, cut and bag vegetables. Crops still have to be picked by hand, which is becoming more expensive as labor shortages persist.

“This is a plea to Congress that they stop kicking this can down the road. It’s not just farmers who are being affected,” he said. “Consumers are ultimately paying the price — and we’re all consumers; we all have to eat.”

Biden is now worse than Trump:

Biden announces major border strategy shift, expands Trump policy
...
Though the administration has tried to end Title 42, in recent months, it began expanding the use of the policy by turning back Venezuelans to Mexico. Now Cubans, Nicaraguans, and Haitians will be turned away under Title 42 as well, narrowing the ability of thousands of migrants to seek asylum. Mexico has agreed to allow U.S. officials to return up to 30,000 migrants per month.

“Certainly no court requires the expansion of the policy,” said Lee Gelernt, an ACLU attorney who led the legal challenges against Title 42 in federal court.
...
The new rules for Cubans, Haitians and Nicaraguans will remain in place even if Title 42 is lifted, Biden said Thursday.
...
Immigrant advocates, who compared the proposal to a Trump-era policy, roundly condemned the new measures announced Thursday.

“President Biden and his administration are now actively pursuing discredited Trump policies like Title 42 and an asylum ban in an attempt to score political points at the border,” said Sunil Varghese, policy director at the International Refugee Assistance Project. “Opening up new limited pathways for a small percentage of people does not obscure the fact that the Biden administration is illegally and immorally gutting access to humanitarian protections for the majority of people who have already fled their country seeking freedom and safety.”

Marisa Limón Garza, executive director of Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center, a group that represents migrants seeking asylum at the border, said the policies put “politics before human lives.”

Meanwhile, Ukrainians continue to be admitted. When is someone going to assassinate Biden?

US presses PA to accept plan to quash Palestinian armed groups

The US is putting the onus on the Palestinian Authority to improve security in the West Bank, despite Israeli raids.

The top diplomat of the United States, Antony Blinken, has put pressure on Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas to “regain control” of Jenin and Nablus in the occupied West Bank, according to a report, putting responsibility for the escalating violence in the territory on the Palestinians, despite continued Israeli raids which have killed at least 200 people in the last year.

The US plan would see the PA clamp down on newly emergent Palestinian armed groups in the West Bank, sources told the Axios news website.

According to the report, published on Wednesday, Palestinians expressed reservations over the lack of emphasis in the plan on Israel de-escalating and decreasing its raids in the West Bank.

The plan, the sources said, includes the PA’s security forces regaining control of the northern part of the West Bank, especially Nablus and Jenin. The officials also said a special Palestinian force would receive training to then be deployed in the area to counter armed groups’ resistance.

The two cities have emerged as a hub for armed groups composed of young Palestinians who have grown frustrated by the occupation and the increasingly unpopular PA.

The Israeli military says its raids have been in part a crackdown on these new armed groups, although raids have long been a regular occurrence in the West Bank.

In 2022, more than 170 Palestinians, including at least 30 children, were killed across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, the deadliest year since 2006, according to the United Nations.

At least a further 35 have been killed in January alone, including five children.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration has withdrawn its pick of a human rights activist for a post at the Organization of American States for calling Israel an “apartheid state” and blasting a top House Democrat as being “Bought. Purchased. Controlled” by pro-Israel groups.

The U.S. announced Friday the candidacy of James Cavallaro to serve as an independent member of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, a watchdog monitoring the Americas, praising him as “leading scholar and practitioner of international law” with deep expertise in the region.

But on Tuesday the State Department said that his candidacy was pulled in the wake of an article by a New York-based Jewish publication, the Algemeiner, which revealed Cavallaro's history of posts critical of Israel and U.S. support for the Jewish state.

In one Dec. 2022 tweet, deleted as the Algemeiner article was being readied for publication, Cavallaro used language viewed by many Jews as layered with anti-Semitic tropes to accuse House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, Democrat of New York, of being in the pocket of pro-Israel lobbyists.

“Bought. Purchased. Controlled,” Cavallaro wrote alongside a link to an article about Jeffries' donations from AIPAC and other pro-Israel groups.

Of course Cavallaro is correct:

Woke comments:

Cavallaro is telling the truth and the Biden administration, by pulling his nomination, just admitted it.

Quote
So Biden fires someone who was just telling the Truth. Nelson Mandela & Desmond Tutu have both said that Israel is an Apartheid State. You would think that they knew what they were talking about, coming from South Africa & all. But No, our bought & sold politicians basically answer to their Lobbyists & Donors rather than the Truth.

Quite impressive representation Jews have in the U.S. Federal government, and Biden administration, considering Jews supposedly only make up 2.4% of the U.S. population:

Quote
Depending on religious definitions and varying population data, the United States has the largest or second largest Jewish community in the world, after Israel. As of 2020, the core American Jewish population is estimated at 7.6 million people, accounting for 2.4% of the total US population.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Jews

Something tells me that Jews occupy way more than 2.4% of U.S. Federal government positions? "Whites" like Biden and Trump obviously have no problem with this at all...
