In the U.S. Senate, there is a rule called the filibuster.
It prevents the majority party from assuming total control if they have less than 60 seats.
That means the minority party has some leverage and retains some influence, meaning their voters have at least a sliver of representation.
Jorge Ramos, a Spanish-language TV anchor, wants to scrap that for the sake of migrants.
End the minority party’s power to stall legislation — the filibuster — and pass very concrete laws for the benefit of Dreamers and migrant farm workers through a procedural budget shortcut called reconciliation. Both issues are politically aggressive and would face huge Republican opposition. But it’s about time we made radical decisions to protect the lives of millions of immigrants like [Honduran economic migrant] María [Mejía].
President Biden, the clock is ticking. Please don’t wait much longer. We can’t afford to repeat the mistakes of the past.Breitbart News
So according to Ramos, Americans don’t matter as much as migrants do.
This shows you the political priorities of Democrats and the Left.
America Last, every single time.
There’s also some self-interest involved for Ramos, as there’s nothing leftists like more than benefiting themselves by sacrificing the rights of others.
But as you might expect for a leftist, Ramos hasn’t thought this through properly.
So this actually doesn’t even benefit Ramos or his employer in the long-term.
Plus it harms Americans when migrants take their jobs, and it harms migrants when people smugglers drain their money.
Many other migrants — and their home countries– are suffering as Ramos and other advocates encourage migrants to take the risk trek to the United States. Many migrants do get in and so damage Americans’ wages. But many others are economically ruined by the trek and the pro-migration cheerleading.Breitbart News
So this is a lose-lose situation.
But Ramos still wants it anyway!
This is why Democrats are like children.
They want something right now, and they keep making noise until they get it.
They don’t think about the consequences, or how things might change in the future.
And this is why it’s so dangerous to have people like that running our country and influencing our culture.
Americans need to ignore the demands these radicals are making, and focus on fixing the real problems in our country.
