President Obama’s making a big push in the final months of his presidency to convert huge numbers of recent immigrants and refugees into “new Americans,” and the mayors of the nation’s cities are lining up to help him accomplish his goal.
They talk about the need for greater “diversity” and the economic benefits that immigrants bring. Okay! I am all ears along with my humbled staff — who is it exactly who feels the need for more diversity?
But critics say the program is not as much about creating “new Americans” as it is about creating new “voters” who will help re-elect Democrats and institutionalize Obama’s policies on immigration, education and healthcare for years to come.
Obama’s White House Task Force on New Americans is leading the charge, signing up mayors in major cities to further the goal of encouraging recent immigrants and refugees to go through the process of becoming a citizen.
The mayors of New York and Boston have become the latest to join Obama’s diversity program.
They became the fifth and sixth U.S. cities to hop aboard Obama’s “welcoming” parade for hundreds of thousands of immigrants and refugees who entered the country — some legally, some illegally — but haven’t yet pursued citizenship.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a similar contract with the federal government on June 10.
This is where I will send a direct copy of this email to my Congressman Elijah Cummings in Maryland. How could any member of human kind feel the need for diversity when the United States Department of H0meland Security is in arrangements with the United States Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) services assisting DHS in diversifying the United States?
