MILLINOCKET, Maine, June 22, 2014 — Last Tuesday, while dining at the Blue Duck Tavern in Washington’s West End, Valerie Jarrett and Rupert Murdoch shared a table and discussed immigration reform.
Jarrett, a top aide to the Obamas, and Murdoch, the media mogul, apparently had a lot in common on the subject. Impressed by his strong stance on immigration reform, Jarrett said, “he (Murdoch) understands from a business perspective how important immigration reform would be to our economy.”
The next morning, Jarrett enjoyed a breakfast with the Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies. Business Roundtable is currently lobbying on Capitol Hill for immigration reform.
Also on Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed by Murdoch, who just happens to own the Wall Street Journal. “One of the most immediate ways to revitalize our economy is by passing immigration reform,” he wrote.
As optimistic as Jarrett and Murdoch are, most people view with some trepidation the current activities on our southern border.
Among the influx of “children” crossing into our country, agents are reporting large numbers of gang members coming in who are then being transported to cities around the country. It’s unclear exactly how these 17-year-olds and younger are going “revitalize” our economy.
On a daily basis, there are numerous news reports of illegals that are running afoul of the law, and in most cases they face no meaningful consequences for their criminal acts. These stories are becoming the norm as the incredibly naïve ideas of “tolerance and diversity” unravel our society.
While the movers and shakers of politics and business engage in lofty mutual admiration platitudes, the rest of us are stuck at ground level with the detritus of their policies.
