European Immigrant Crisis Is A Warning

Europe has been in an uproar for months over Germany’s decision to admit 1.1 million refugees, mostly young men of fighting age from war-torn countries. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has finally started to backtrack from their reckless decision. Merkel announced that refugees will be sent back home after the war is over in their homeland, and she even suggested that border guards should shoot at migrants who try to enter Germany illegally. In Britain, meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron has been trying to get permission from the European Union bureaucrats to impose a four-year waiting period for the most generous welfare benefits, in order to discourage new immigrants from other EU countries.

America’s sovereignty depends on control of both immigration and trade, and that’s why Senator Jeff Sessions has urged voters to choose a candidate who promises to kill the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. A new study by economists at Tufts University predicts that U.S. ratification of the TPP would shrink our GDP by $100 billion, leading to a loss of nearly half a million American jobs. “This election will be the last chance for Americans to get control of their government,” said Sessions, after 30 years of promises to end illegal immigration. “I think this election is the big one. To win, Republicans need to demonstrate that they care about the average person who goes to work every day,” he added. Average Americans are tired of paying billions in welfare handouts to immigrants who are undermining U.S. wages.

“This may be the last opportunity the American people will have to have their will imposed and create a lawful immigration system that serves the national interest,” Sessions emphasized. “On these two issues [immigration and trade], I think the voters should say, ‘If you’re not going to be right on those, I’m not going to vote for you as president.’ I really think it’s that important.”
