Biden’s Immigration Policy Is An Economic Strategy White House Says

 May 22, 2023

President Joe Biden’s immigration policy is intended to fill new jobs in government spending programs, high-tech firms, and a growing economy according to a senior White House official. Katie Tobin, the senior director for trans-border security on the National Security Council spoke, on May 15th at the 2023 edition of the World Bank’s, annual World Development Report, an event held at the investor-run, American Enterprise Institute.

Tobin is a former D.C.- based official of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She was one of the featured speakers there regarding “migration and the Biden / Harris” plan that has been implemented she said ‘since taking office”.

Apparently, migration is a topic that has been of central concern to US policymakers in recent years. This event featured-

“a presentation of the report’s main findings and recommendations, as well as comments from experts and policymakers about the way in which the United States is responding and should respond to global migration trends.”

In her remarks Tobin said at this event-

“We are creating new jobs this year as we’re breaking ground on key infrastructure projects under the President’s bipartisan infrastructure law, the CHIPS and Science Act, [and] new green jobs as we implement the Inflation Reduction Act,”

“As our economy grows, we need workers that we just don’t have enough of. So it is in our interest to bring people in and to stay competitive globally.”

“We’re extremely focused on … increasing the number of legal pathways for people migrating to the United States and … making it easier for them to access those legal pathways. To oversimplify it, we assess that there are three primary reasons why people are seeking to come to the United States.”

“One: For economic opportunity — we have lots of jobs and we have higher wages than a lot of countries in the region.”

“Two: Family reunification — A lot of people have [job-seeking illegal migrant] family here and they’ve been separated a long time. They want to be with their family, and,”…

“Three: Protection. As was noted in the last presentation, we have a lot of people fleeing persecution, fleeing [poverty] hardship in their home countries, and they’re seeking safe haven in the United States.”

And “In closing,”…. “the Biden-Harris administration appreciates both the moral responsibility and the strategic opportunity that migration presents — it’s at the heart of our domestic and our foreign policy agendas.”

-Katie Tobin, Senior Director, Trans-Border Security, National Security Council

In her speech she reiterated that the administration’s desire is, for Congress to take responsibility in providing better laws on immigration reform. However, she openly said that Biden’s administration is deliberately going around Congress to provide other “legal Pathways” for migration to take place. Biden’s back door policy of government-accelerated economic migration could be described as corporatist migration.

Mark Krikorian, Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, reportedly said-

“The federal government is basically serving as a staffing service for American corporations … This administration is clearly rooting for large corporations, the Chamber of Commerce, and employers who don’t want to raise wages, at the expense of ordinary workers. That’s a choice, but it should be made clear what they’re choosing and whose interests they’re serving.”

-Mark Krikorian, Director of the Center for Immigration Studies

Instead, of using migration for economic impact, Tobin’s admission, starkly differs from the media’s coverage of migration as a massive humanitarian problem. Additionally, border-drama stories hide the huge level of legal migration, roughly one million per year and the huge inflow of visa workers that create a population of at least 1.5 million white-collar foreign workers in U.S. jobs. Those numbers are lost in the shuffle.

So literally, the administration’s lawyers are trying to defend Biden’s claimed “legal pathways” as humanitarian aid for asylum seekers, refugees, and parole emergencies. This is all while Tobin, on the other hand, repeatedly describes the inflow as economic migrants who are seeking jobs and higher living standards. So what’s the truth?

Tobin and the administration’s position, is apparently good news for U.S. investors who say that the immigration of consumers, renters, and workers is better than trade, because their foreign investments face political risks in poor, developing countries. However according to Krikorian, this -

“kind of extraction migration doesn’t even really have the likelihood of creating any kind of circular benefits for” [poor countries] All you’re doing is draining away the people that they need for development … The people who have some get up and go, the kind of people who would start a new little business in their town, who would run for mayor to clean up the local police department, that kind of stuff. [If they go] what you have left is kids, old people, and the deadbeat brothers-in-law ….

“You can’t develop your [poor] country by exporting your main resource — human beings — and importing some share of their earnings for a little while until the money stops. That’s not a development strategy.”

“I can’t explain the process but clearly for the left, open borders is now a non-negotiable value, a litmus test issue. So it doesn’t matter what happens with those [poor] countries, that it harms their prospects for development, that it destabilizes them. It doesn’t matter that it hurts American workers.”

“None of that stuff matters because open migration is non-negotiable for these people.”

 [adding…] “A tight labor market is both a good social policy, but also a spur to labor-saving innovations … [With migration] we import workers to perform tasks unchanged from the Middle Ages even though tighter labor markets would spur the modernization of things like harvesting raisins or any number of any number of industries.”

--Mark Krikorian, Director of the Center for Immigration Studies

Apparently, the Biden administration wants to use their immigration policies to profit, some, not all sectors of the economy, forcing the loss of human resources to poorer countries, while feeding the American people the lie, that the goal in this forced illegal immigration that is currently underway, is for humanitarian reasons. The deceitfulness of this administration is beyond belief. They are blatantly attempting to “water down” those benefits / rights and privileges that legally born Americans enjoy in favor of their back door economic policies. This is usury plain and simple.

These policies use American resources that are provided by U.S. tax-payers against them, by offering them to these illegal migrants in an effort to resettle here. Further, those resources used, make it harder for actual American’s to gain the support of local programs because there is less overall support available. Then there is the sacrifice of rents, the cost of food and supplies to live that is driven higher, in an already bad economy, by this false humanitarian - economic focus. The lies and deceit just keep coming.

In her highly arrogant, speech which was nauseating to listen to, Tobin added-

“In year two and now year three, we are starting to make some really big moves and announcing a lot of new legal pathways,” she said. For example, the administration has announced it will open 100 migrant centers where foreigners can ask to migrate to the United States, often via the refugee program that is funded by Congress.”

“Another big focus of the Biden-Harris administration has been working to not only build back the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program but really upgrade and streamline it. The goal would be that we would use the refugee authority in our immigration laws to welcome refugees around the world, for Syrians, Ukrainian. But I think as many of you around the room know, historically, it can take several years, 2, 5, 10 years for people to be resettled, which is just not sufficient.”

-Katie Tobin, Senior Director, Trans-Border Security, National Security Council

This administrations full-speed efforts to circumvent Congress, to make what they want happen, is so very evident in the mater-of-fact way they are obviously planning their programs moving forward – all at U.S taxpayers expense. This administration will go to any lengths to lie, cheat, subvert the truth to gain access to tax dollars - all it would seem to force the American economy to the brink of collapse.

In their socialist manner of thinking – everyone gets to be poor except a select few. There will be no middle-class or upward mobility. American’s need to consider the reality of what is happening at our southern border and the effects being foisted upon us all – our basic way of life is in danger. We need leadership that promotes American sovereignty, the rule of law and does not circumvents the separation of powers established by the U.S Constitution. America needs to change direction before it’s too late.

“National sovereignty is an obligation as well as an entitlement. A government that will not perform the role of a government forfeits the rights of a government.”

-Richard Perle


“Failure to properly control our borders costs citizens in many ways: schools become overcrowded, medical resources are stretched too thin, other government services are overtaxed, and taxes increase further.”
