The future some envision for America.
After Trump threatened to close the border at least twice these last few weeks, economists are warning us that closing the border would be bad for the economy.
As we all know by now, the economy is all that matters. People come way after the economy in the list of priorities, and having a country and not getting replaced don’t even make it into that list.
President Donald Trump’s threat to shut down the southern border raised fears Monday of dire economic consequences in the U.S. and an upheaval of daily life in a stretch of the country that relies on the international flow of not just goods and services but also students, families and workers.
Politicians, business leaders and economists warned that such a move would block incoming shipments of fruits and vegetables, TVs, medical devices and other products and cut off people who commute to their jobs or school or come across to go shopping.
“Let’s hope the threat is nothing but a bad April Fools’ joke,” said economist Dan Griswold at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University in Virginia. He said Trump’s threat would be the “height of folly,” noting that an average of 15,000 trucks and $1.6 billion in goods cross the border every day.
“If trade were interrupted, U.S. producers would suffer crippling disruptions of their supply chains, American families would see prices spike for food and cars, and U.S. exporters would be cut off from their third-largest market,” he said.
Elected leaders from border communities stretching from San Diego to cities across Texas warned that havoc would ensue on both sides of the international boundary if the ports were closed. They were joined by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which said such a step would inflict “severe economic harm.”
Sure, everyone in your neighborhood is called either Miguel or Maria del Carmen, but at least food and car prices are pretty okay, you know?
In California’s Imperial Valley, across from Mexicali, Mexico, farmers rely on workers who come across every day from Mexico to harvest fields of lettuce, carrots, onions and other winter vegetables. Shopping mall parking lots in the region are filled with cars with Mexican plates.
Then how about they hire Americans instead? Yes, they’d probably have to pay more but at least Americans won’t be shitting on their lettuce.
The face they make when they see you eat lettuce.
Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz, chairman of the Texas Border Coalition, said a closure would be catastrophic.
“Closing the border would cause an immediate depression in border state communities and, depending on the duration, a recession in the rest of the country,” he said.
“Our business would end,” said Marta Salas, an employee at an El Paso shop near the border that sells plastic flowers that are used on the Mexican side by families holding quinceañeras, the traditional coming-of-age celebrations.
Salas said her whole family, including relatives who attend the University of Texas at El Paso, would be affected if the border were closed.
“There are Americans who live there. I have nephews who come to UTEP, to grade school, to high school every day,” Salas said.
These people are okay with the invasion as long as — in their eyes — the economy doesn’t suffer. They are okay with getting replaced, they are okay with their money being wasted on the invaders, and overall they’re happy with paying the invaders to invade them.
The economy is not more important than the American people. If the economy takes a hit and gets momentarily upset in exchange for the American people to not go extinct, then that sounds like a pretty good deal.
We can change the economy and we can change the system. We made them. They are here to serve us. We’re not here to serve them.
This capitalist “profit over all” thing has to be stopped. It is a direct attack on our people and it only serves the ones at the top of the pyramid.
Sacrificing our people so we can keep some sort of economy monster alive while it devours the American soul is a perverse proposition.
Who cares how many jobs we create if our people are not going to be here to work?
￼These Economy Cultists get off on creating jobs for foreigners.
Jobs in America are for Americans.
The land of America is for Americans.
The wealth of Americans belongs to Americans.
