In the movie The Exorcist the young priest, Father Karras must wait with the possessed Regan until the seasoned priest Father Merrin arrives. When Father Merrin finally arrives the following exchange takes place:
Father Karras: I think it might be helpful if I gave you some background on the different personalities Regan has manifested. So far, I'd say there seem to be three. She's convinced...
Father Merrin: There is only one.
That is where America stands today, there is no Democratic Party and there is no Republican Party there is only one party, the Satanic Fascist Corporatist Party herein known as the SFC Party. The two parties only come together for one goal, to fund endless war and destruction across the planet at the expense of everything and everyone else.
DACA or the Deferred Action in Childhood Arrivals is just the latest sham foisted upon the world by the SFC Party. They don’t give a rip about the DACA young adults, they don’t give a rip about natural born young American adults, they don’t give a rip about anything or anyone other than serving their Fascistic Corporatists masters.
Recently PBS reran an episode of their documentary series Frontline entitled “Rape on the Night Shift.” The piece centered on millions of women janitors almost all of whom are in America illegally with their families, who form an invisible nighttime workforce that clean malls, banks, big box stores and offices as well as the Pentagon.
PBS’ report centered on two multi-billion dollar companies, ABM a Fortune 500 company and leading provider of facility solutions with offices throughout the United States and various international locations and SMS, a janitorial company based in Nashville, Tennessee, with contracts throughout the country.
These two multi-billion dollar companies almost exclusively employ illegal alien women who speak limited English exploiting their unfortunate situation for massive corporate profits. If they were deported, ABM and SMS would have to hire a legal workforce paying a living wage with benefits, therefore they heavily lobby the SFC Party to keep this enslaved workforce. That is why the SFC Party is grandstanding to pass DACA. So let’s break this down and see what DACA actually means in terms of immigration in America.
What is the Visa Lottery?
According to The Center for Immigration Studies, the Visa Lottery is described as such:
The Immigration Act of 1990 permanently established the Diversity Visa category. The program benefits individuals from nations that send relatively few immigrants to the United States. Eligibility is straightforward: One needs only a high-school education or two years of work experience in certain jobs to qualify. Millions of people apply every year for the 50,000 green cards distributed by lottery, which does not take age, skills, language ability, or connection to the United States into account.
Is that nuts or what? Does America need 50,000 immigrants per year in regardless of age, skills, language ability or connection to the United States to enter into their workforce?? No wonder American workers cannot find good paying jobs when our economy is flooded with low skilled workers from foreign countries with no loyalty to America to fill jobs for multi-billion dollar companies that exploit them like ABM and SMS.
What is Chain migration?
According to the Bi-partisan Policy Center, Chain Migration is described as such:
“Chain migration” is a term commonly used by advocates of restricting immigration to describe legal, family-based immigration. Under current U.S. immigration law, citizens may sponsor certain relatives for green cards. Green card holders may, in turn, sponsor a smaller group of relatives for green cards. Collectively, this ability of immigrants, who later become green card holders and citizens, to sponsor their family members is described by some as a “chain” of migration.
Family-sponsored green cards have been part of immigration law since at least 1965 and account for about 65% of new legal immigrants to the United States each year.
Wait a minute, are they saying that the 50,000 winners of the annual Visa Lottery then can bring in their relatives who can bring in their relatives to be given green cards to work in the U.S.? That sounds crazy, it’s like turning over the American immigration policy to immigrants.
What is DACA?
But the DACA or so called Dreamers are in neither category. As the Bi-Partisan Policy Center puts it:
There is broad support among members of Congress, President Trump, and the public for legislation that would provide a permanent status to so-called DREAMers, undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children. Many of these individuals held work authorization under the Obama-era program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Some have raised concerns that allowing DREAMers to sponsor their parents to get green cards would generate “chain migration” since the legalization would extend beyond this population.
I say it’s a valid concern. So what is it that President Trump is proposing that has members of the SFC Party so concerned that they are willing to shut down the government causing undue hardship to 850,000 federal workers to preserve the current immigration system? From Citizen Path:
RAISE Act Threatens to Wreck Family-Based Immigration
Last week President Trump put his support behind legislation that would dramatically reshape the U.S. immigration system. If successful, the plan would significantly limit the number of green cards that are issued each year through family-based immigration.
Instead, preference would be given to hopeful immigrants that offer the best skills to the American economy. Known as the “Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy” (RAISE) Act, the legislation would be the most significant change to U.S. immigration policy in almost five decades…
The RAISE Act proposes to slash what supporters term “chain migration.” This includes ways of immigrating to the United States that are based on family relationships, not based on skills. Approximately two-thirds of green cards issued each year are given to immigrants with a family member that is already in the United States as a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident. Critics of the current system claim that this inflow of immigrants displaces blue collar American workers.
Bingo, that is exactly what the SFC Party desires, a permanent low skilled, low paid immigrant workforce with limited rights to replace America’s blue collar workers so multi-billion dollar corporations like ABM and SMS have a permanent slave labor force to line their pockets. That is who the SFC Party is looking out for, not the DACA young adults. It is reprehensible.
Now the SFC Party has shut down the government so “non-essential” government employees won’t get paid until the SFC Party decides to stop holding them hostage. What does that mean for American government workers? From the World Socialist Website:
In contrast to the presentation in the bourgeois press, many functions of the US government do not shut down during a budget impasse. Immigration agents and border patrol will continue to round up families for deportation, American warplanes will carry out their sorties over Middle Eastern countries, and the National Security Agency will continue its mass surveillance of the American and world population.
However, some 850,000 federal workers, many of whom are mid- and low-level domestic agency staff, as well as janitors, cafeteria workers and other service employees will stop receiving paychecks. These workers do not always receive back pay for furloughs and many face economic devastation as a result of even a brief shutdown.
Over 60 percent of Centers for Disease Control employees will be furloughed in the midst of the worst flu epidemic in years. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, HOWEVER, WILL BE PAID FOR DAYS THE GOVERNMENT IS TECHNICALLY CLOSED DOWN.
Seems to me the only non-essential government workers are those in the SFC Party who will continue to receive their taxpayer funded Obamacare, lavish salaries, travel, special interest paid lavish vacations and their millions of dollars they receive from their “legalized” insider trading schemes. In The Exorcist Father Merrin says:
Father Merrin: Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with the demon. We may ask what is relevant but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a liar. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. The attack is psychological, Damien, and powerful. So don't listen to him. Remember that - do not listen.
Words of wisdom from Father Merrin. Those words apply to the Satanic Fascist Corporatist Party. Do not listen “they are liars, they are demon liars.” “They will confuse us, they will mix lies with the truth to attack us, the attack is psychological and powerful, do not listen.” Amen.
