CEOs Roar: Give Us DACA

Apparently, they’re not satisfied with their huge corporate tax cut:

“More than 100 corporate leaders called on Congress on Wednesday to act immediately to provide legal relief for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants.

Letters co-signed by athletes, business leaders, entertainers and other notable members of society are common on Capitol Hill, but the latest message comes a day after President Trump hosted Democratic and Republican lawmakers at the White House and pressed them to enact legislation providing legal protections for nearly 700,000 immigrants under an Obama-era executive action beginning to expire known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. …”

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is spending millions of dollars on the 2018 midterms to defeat leftwing and rightwing populist candidates:

“The head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said Wednesday his organization will deeply involve itself in this year’s midterm congressional elections — including Republican primaries — as he called both Steve Bannon and Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren extremists.

“If we’re only sending ideological purists and strict partisans to Washington, we’re stopping progress before it even starts,” Thomas Donohue, the chamber’s president, said in his annual address on American business in Washington. “So, if we’re going to fight back against the extremes of both parties — of Steve Bannon and Elizabeth Warren — those people do not represent the best interests of this country.” …”

Thomas Donahue, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, doesn’t think there are enough workers to do Trump’s infrastructure plan. We need more Third World immigrants:

“America’s biggest businesses — from Apple to Koch Industries — have cheered President Trump’s tax plan and his push to rollback regulations, but they say Trump is wrong on immigration. Throwing a million immigrant workers out of this country, as Trump is threatening to do, would be devastating for the economy, business leaders say. …

Many of Trump’s top economic priorities for 2018 would be jeopardized if the administration starts mass deportations of these immigrants, many of whom work and have been in the country for years, Donohue said. Trump says he plans to unveil an infrastructure package soon, but Donohue says there aren’t enough workers left to do all the rebuilding of roads, bridges and ports that politicians in Washington envision.

“If we do a $1 trillion-plus, 10-year infrastructure plan, we can’t do that with the workers we have now,” said Donohue. …”

The reason that Donald Trump was elected president is because millions of voters were fed up with the Republican Party catering exclusively to the interests of the wealthy and the business community and rejected their handmaiden conservative candidates in the primaries. Even after getting the corporate tax cut, it is clear that they haven’t learned their lesson.

  1. Don’t forget also that they are purposely obfuscating terms such as DACA and dreamers. DACA had certain requirements and 800k people applied and were accepted into the program. The term dreamers, depending on how it is defined, could include 3 to 8 million people. We will be lied to about how many people will get amnesty.

    • These ( CEO, ) predatory capitalists are 1/2 the problem. The other 1/2 is us … NOT creating a new Confederate States. Talk and march and comment. Nothing changes.

  2. With massive unemployment of blue collar Whites in rural areas, these CEOs claim that they are not enough workers to rebuild infrastructure? Are they bold faced lairs, or so totally disconnected from working class Whites that they no longer realize that we even exist?
    The love of money and material goods above all else is what allowed these corporations to slowly gain a stranglehold over our economy and our people. This is what happens When Mammon Rules. https://godkinandsoil.wordpress.com/2017/12/28/when-mammon-rules/

    • Yeah, Joe. I was listening to this Italian stallion from NYC on Fox, the dago is some sort of a capo for a New Yawk contractors association—union & non-union. Anyway the wop is claiming they “must” import workers for both their NYC jobs and their Miami jobs. Like they can’t get healthy young men from flyover country who would like to make the big bucks.

      The dago named Rinaldi is just another lying Roman Catholic sob.

  3. Cultural power in this and every other Western nation is on the political left, and that means political power is on the left.

    I really don’t believe that CEOs, the Republican leadership, and Conservatism, Inc. support open borders because of cheap labor, I believe they support it in order not to be called “racists”, and in doing so are then able to expand their privilege and go on living their semi-segregated lives. These CEOs aren’t letting Latoisha or Pedro anywhere near their base computer code or boardrooms. The major universities aren’t putting black professors in their mathematics or chemistry department, they’re isolating them in phony sociological courses, all while they shriek about white privilege. This is also why the upper middle class is liberal: they’re throwing the lower classes under the bus in the face of power so they can keep sending their kids to segregated schools and shopping at segregated Whole Foods stores. Hillary Clinton summed this cynical con game up perfectly when she said:

    “If we broke up the big banks tomorrow—and I will if they deserve it, if they pose a systemic risk, I will—would that end racism? Would that end sexism? Would that end discrimination against the LGBT community? Would that make people feel more welcoming to immigrants overnight?”
