Buttigieg Calls On Immigrants to Flood Small American Towns to 'Grow Population'
The Democrat touted his 'investor-friendly' plan during a campaign stop in Merrimack
Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is currently promoting a new 'visa program' that aims to flood small American towns with legal immigrants in order to increase the regions’ populations.
The program aims to benefit corporate investors, big business and housing developers, while seemingly sidling ordinary residents.
Buttigieg touted his 'investor-friendly' plan during a campaign stop in Merrimack, New Hampshire, which would overwhelm small American towns with legal immigration to drive population growth.
Buttigieg told the crowd:
I’m proposing what we call “Community Renewal Visas” that when a community that is very much in need of growing its population recognizes that, and makes a choice to welcome more than its share of new Americans that we create a fast-track if they apply for an allotment of visas, that goes to those who are willing to be in those areas that maybe are hurting for population but have great potential.
The presidential candidate's population growth agenda is eerily similar to a plan by the Economic Innovation Group, an investor-led organization seeking to create a “Heartland Visa” to inundate small American towns with more legal immigration.
Wall Street, big business, developers, and investors benefit from millions of new consumers, as well as residents fighting for housing and jobs.
Investors and the pro-migration lobby for years have looked to grow the nation’s population via legal immigration to profit from increasing housing prices for Americans.
The U.S population is expected to grow to an unprecedented 404 million residents by 2060, which would come with additional housing and commercial development, and increased living density for Americans.
Buttigieg also indicated that he would back Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) S. 386, which would ensure only Indian nationals obtain nearly all of the nation’s employment-based green cards over the next ten years.
The legislation highly benefits outsourcing firms such as Cognizant and Infosys, and tech giants like Amazon and Facebook, because it solidifies a green card system wherein only foreign workers on H-1B visas will be able to obtain ain employment green cards by creating a backlog of seven to eight years for all foreign nationals.
“And so a couple of steps I think would help make [the legal immigration system] better: One is these country caps that exist that create a longer and longer clock on family reunification and other ways to make sure folks can get through that process,” Buttigieg said.
“It’s based on numbers that were settled on in the 1980s. It makes no sense. And it has no relationship to our economic reality," he added.
"So when we have work-based visas, those pathways to come to the country, it should be something that can be revisited and revised every two years in an administrative process instead of literally taking an act of Congress to go clear up.”
Last year, Buttigieg also promised to provide taxpayer-funded "free" health care to all illegal aliens living in the United States.
"So the most important thing for me is that we offer the opportunity for health care to all in our country, and this includes the opportunity to buy this plan of Medicare for All who want it," Buttigieg said.
"That is our solution. And this opportunity to buy this plan is for everyone regardless of their immigration status."
