Immigration

Immigration policies of trump

Our Democracy is under attack.

We have lived in America for forty years. Our children, our grandchildren are first and second generation Americans. And what was strange and uncomfortable for us, new immigrants, is now a norm. We see people from all over the world anywhere we go. At work, in the gym, in the store. Our kids have friends who's parents came from India, China, Korea and many other countries. And this is America. And I like it this way. I love to go to different ethnic restaurants, food stores and learn about ethnic food. To me, to our family this is just great.

And that is why it is so sad, so disturbing and disheartening to witness our current administration and it's inhumane, mean-spirited and hateful anti-immigration rhetoric and policies.

Families detained at the border.

It is damaging to our Democracy, American economy, American leadership in the world. Trump's hateful words, short sited policies are poisoning our society, destabilizing American institutions and are tearing the country apart.

Immigration

Immigration, in my opinion, is the most troubling and the most important issue for our country. But especially crucial during the Trump administration. Starting with the undeniable fact that America is a country of immigrants. Here is a sample chart:

I will not go too deep into history because of constraints of time and space but below are a couple of US anti-immigration policies of the past. Here is a list of some people the US did not want in America:

Catholics

Chinese

Irish

Jews

Japanese

Now it is almost everybody except Europeans (maybe).

To be sure I am not advocating unrestricted entrance for everybody who is trying to come to America. We do need strong borders and customs. People need to be vetted in order to get permission.

Anti-immigration attitudes in America are as old as the country.

“By 1924, the United States had constructed a web of legislation that effectively barred any Asian immigration. It would stay in place until World War II, when the United States was shamed into dismantling the ban by its ally, China. Still, Trump and his advisers look to the time when the United States locked its doors to immigration as a golden era. No wonder his rhetoric sounds so familiar.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/global-opinions/wp/2018/10/31/trump-takes-us-back-to-the-darkest-days-of-american-xenophobia/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.7b20ce34224a

The adverse effects of anti-immigration policies of the Trump administration.

World opinion about America as a “shining city on the hill”, a great friendly Democracy. It is changing. No more “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc.

Draconian anti -immigration policies destroying America from within. Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric energized all sorts of hate groups. On the right and, as counter, on the left.

Extreme shortage of skilled labor.The skills gap is widening, unemployment in the U.S. is at its lowest rate since 2000, and nearly 60% of employers struggle to fill job vacancies within 12 weeks. But if you think it’s tough to find great talent now, new research from the Korn Ferry Institutesuggests that things are only going to get worse. https://business.linkedin.com/talent-solutions/blog/trends-and-research/2018/industries-biggest-talent-shortages-2030

Knowledge-intensive industries like financial services will be some of the hardest hit. These industries require a high volume of skilled workers—and as demand outpaces supply, competition for qualified candidates will soar. This is especially true in countries where unemployment is low, since employed workers have much less incentive to retrain, re-skill, or enter a new field.

Falling immigration causes companies to move abroad.Microsoft does not want to move jobs out of the United States but certain decisions out of Washington could potentially force its hands, the company's President and Chief Legal Officer, Brad Smith, warned. From a report: The Trump Administration's tough stance on immigration has attracted a lot of criticism from big technology firms, which rely heavily on skilled foreign workers from around the world. Smith previously spoke out against efforts to stop the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program -- an Obama-era policy that provides legal protection for young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Microsoft has advocated the protection of DACA and more broadly supported immigration as a way to make sure U.S. companies are hiring talented people. "We do worry about a couple of the very specific immigration questions that people appear to be debating in Washington," Smith told CNBC's Akiko Fujita in an interview on Wednesday. https://news.slashdot.org/story/18/07/12/1148231/microsoft-could-move-some-jobs-abroad-because-of-us-immigration-policies-top-exec-says

Competition for skilled employees will intensify. And the US was in a great position because people wanted to come here from all over the world to live and to work. And what do we do? The Trump administration is trying to discourage graduating students to remain here, and pushing away skilled people with it's anti-immigration policies.

Because of concerns about high skilled people, some high tech companies are considering moving some of their operations abroad.

Farmers are suffering because of a shortage of farm workers.

A S maller number of low skilled workers come to the US creating labor shortages for farmers.

“The American Farm Bureau Federation projects $5 billion to $9 billion in annual produce-industry losses because of the labor shortages, which have become commonplace for farmers such as Torrey, who said there were 10 applicants for every job five years ago.” https://bangordailynews.com/2012/07/05/business/fewer-workers-cross-border-creating-us-farm-labor-shortage/

Foreign students . Since Trump became president foreign students are having difficulties staying and working in US due to more hurdles created by the Trump administration that is trying to encourage companies to hire Americans. The problem is that there is a severe shortage of qualified people to fill positions in knowledge-based sectors like finance, computer science, programming and engineering.

Smaller number of high skilled immigrants coming to US.

“Many talented foreign students come to the U.S. to study and hope to stay for work. But they are leaving the country in droves after earning their degrees, deploying their knowledge and skills outside of America. The U.S. immigration system does not retain this talent effectively, and recent decisions have made the system worse.” https://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/economy-budget/408949-as-washington-ignores-high-skill-immigration-debate-us

“Following the Trump administration's executive order last spring encouraging employers to "hire American," the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has requested further information from a rising number of H-1B applicants, lengthening their time of uncertainty as they wait for word about whether they can stay and work in the U.S. This includes international students like Huang, the UVA grad hoping to start her new job. There is no data available to show if this is happening more frequently to international students than it was under the prior administration.” https://www.npr.org/sections/ed/2018/07/10/599219792/u-s-degree-check-u-s-work-visa-still-a-challenge

So here is an interesting contradiction in current administration policies.

On the one hand it started a trade war with China trying to stop it from stealing intellectual property from the US.

On the other hand the Trump administration created hostile policies discouraging graduate students from staying and working here. So we are teaching the best and the brightest in American universities and than Trump kicks them out to go and work for our competitors like China.

Does it makes any sense?

I sincerely hope that this situation is a temporary setback, that our democracy is strong and resilient and will survive.

That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” Friedrich Nietzsche

Let's be strong my friends.

One Extreme does not Make Another Extreme good.

Posted by Nate

Left or right?

Sometimes some of my friends counter my concerns about rising extremism from the right with the argument: "How about ultra liberals?" The extremists on the left? How about the BDS movement on university campuses? And these crazies with political correctness idiocy? And where is our freedom of speech?

What I do not understand is the argument of “just look at the left! They are just as bad!" It is like blaming a kid for doing something stupid and the kid points to the other kid and says, "He is doing it too!” In the corner! Both of you! One bad does not make another good!

So my short answer to my opponents is yes! They both are bad! We have to deal with extremism on both ends! But a clear and present danger today comes from the right.

One extreme creates the other. Below is a quote on the subject.

... since December 2015, he’s documented nearly two-dozen episodes in California where political events turned violent because of agitation on both sides, something he says he hardly ever saw before. Now, there are violent clashes on college campuses involving groups like Antifa, the anti-fascist group, taking on the alt-right; and aggressive anti-Trump rallies attended by membersof the Redneck Revolt, a new pro-minority, anti-supremacist group that encourages its members to train with rifles. Online, hard leftists increasingly discuss politics in dire terms, and rationalize violence as a necessity— even the true inheritor of traditional progressive activism. (Or, in the case of the “Punch a Nazi” meme, a fun game.) https://news.vice.com/en_us/article/3kpeb9/extremism-experts-are-starting-to-worry-about-the-left

No, I do not accept political correctness and I do not support the hateful and unjust BDS movement! Any extreme is prone to trample on our constitutional freedoms – freedom of expression, a free and independent press, freedom of assembly, an independent judiciary. We all know examples of the extreme left coming to power: Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, Cuba, N. Korea and recently Venezuela.

And the far right? Currently they scare me much more than the left...Nazis, KKK, Ult-right and other white supremacists. Their goal? Genocide! Extermination of all “inferior” races. Jews, blacks, brown and so on. Physical extermination!

Here are more quotes: “If you had to Google Left wing violence, you’ve already lost the argument. No one and I mean no one really has to Google Right Wing violence because most of us can NAME two to three or TEN instances off the tops of our heads. This has nothing to do with the “Media” for those of you that want to use that excuse. This has to do with the extreme brutality, cruelty, and sheer terror of the crimes these Right wing extremists committed. “

“Terrorists inspired by Nationalist and Right Wing ideology have killed about 10 times as many people as Left Wing terrorists since 1992. Terrorists with unknown or other motivations were the least deadly. “

Many Americans support Trump because they are scared. Afraid of immigrants, afraid of LGBT. New technology threatens their livelihood. But white people don't seem to realize that eventually the far right will come for them too. https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/far-right-white-trump-extremism-ukip-tory-party-churchill-race-privilege-a8241796.html

“The real threat of violence comes from the right. The Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism reports that right-wingers and white supremacists were responsible for 74 percent of the murders committed by political extremists in the United States over the past decade. Only 2 percent were committed by left-wing radicals. Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the libertarian Cato Institute, has calculated that “terrorists inspired by Nationalist and Right Wing ideology have killed about 10 times as many people as Left Wing terrorists since 1992.”

Fascism in America
Pro-Trump Nazis.

Of course today's statistic does not mean that we can ignore the far left extremism. We know that unopposed it leads to red terror. And by red I mean communism, not the GOP.

Again here are reasons to be aware of danger from both sides! So the argument “how about them?” does not fly in my opinion.

So what do we do?

Who do we vote for? Who is better at fighting hate in America? And I am not talking about the current president who, in my opinion, has greatly contributed to this wave of hate, especially on the right.

I am talking about our political parties now...Republicans and Democrats. As I stated before currently far right hate groups are far more dangerous than far left, especially considering the 2018 midterm results when Democratic Socialists did poorly.

A little more about the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)

..the end goal is, (for DSA) ultimately, like social control of the means of production," said Joe Cernelli, a founding member of that West Virginia DSA chapter. "You know we don't just want to improve capitalism, we will ultimately want to get rid of it." https://www.npr.org/2018/07/26/630960719/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-democratic-socialists-of-america

I do not support this party. It reminds me too much of my old country – USSR. Fortunately, "Far-left candidates did poorly in the Democratic primaries. The vast majority of democratic socialists lost to candidates approved by the party” https://www.economist.com/united-states/2018/09/20/far-left-candidates-did-poorly-in-the-democratic-primaries

So although I consider myself an independent, today I am supporting Democrats, not Democratic Socialists - Democrats.

And what are the root causes of these extremes? Now let's try to get to the root of the problem. Why is the country so polarized? Why this divide, this polarization, why is the extreme on both ends growing?

There are several reasons in my opinion and according to research: Demographic reasons. White people are becoming a minority due to low birth rate and the majority of immigrants now are from Asia, Africa and Latin America. This trend in turn is tied to wars, climate change and the explosion of global migration as a result.

Technology – automation, resulting in many jobs becoming obsolete and a portion of the population being squeezed out of the labor force, threatening their way if life. One robot at the automobile line substitutes six workers.

Trump rhetoric and his election as President. San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón slammed President Trump after the release of Tuesday’s report, directly blaming his actions and words for the worsening climate (hate crimes) documented in the federal report. Trump has repeatedly denied such accusations. https://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/article/FBI-Hate-crimes-in-U-S-CA-surge-in-first-year-13389522.php

Widening income disparity in America, but not only in America.

“We may not want to believe it, but the United States is now the most unequal of all Western nations. To make matters worse, America has considerably less social mobility than Canada and Europe.”

Currently, the richest 1% hold about 38% of all privately held wealth in the United States. while the bottom 90% hold 73.2% of all debt. According to The New York Times, the richest 1 percent in the United States now own more wealth than the bottom 90 percent.

Capitalism is losing it's popularity among young generations.

The anti-Communist organization, Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, was alarmed to find in a recent survey that 44 percent of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist country, compared with 42 percent who want to live under capitalism. For older Americans, the collapse of Communism made it seem as though there was no possible alternative to capitalism. But given the increasingly oligarchic nature of our economy and influence of money on politics, it’s not surprising that for many young people, capitalism looks like the god that failed. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/04/opinion/millennials-hate-capitalism.html

Uncontrolled, unregulated capitalism leads to extremes, to unstable society and extreme governments – Venezuela, Nicaragua, Russia, Problems in Europe, or the election of populists like in Poland, Hungary, Brazil and yes, in the United States.

The same people that are accusing Democrats of trying to install socialism in America by trying to control capitalism, reducing giant and increasing wealth gap between top 1% and the rest of population and improving social programs, in reality these people are contributing to social unrest and the rise of extremists on both sides – left and right.

So what can and should be done to prevent major social upheaval in America?

Education. There should be education about experiments with socialism, the history of countries like Soviet Union, North Korea, Cuba. History of what started WWII, why the Nazis came to power in Germany. What is a Democracy and what does it take to preserve a Democracy. The Constitution of the United States. The balance of power between the major parties. How checks and balances are supposed to preserve our rights, our democracy. It is very dangerous when one party controls all three branches of Government.

Law enforcement.

America is a country of Law. The law enforcement agencies should not be politicized. Unfortunately president Trump is politicizing these institutions and undermining the reputation of these institutions.

In conclusion, I want to stress the thought I started with: all extremes are bad, all extremes are symptoms of problems in our society, extremes cannot be ignored or excused.

The worst extreme of today is Trump and his party in Congress. So please be informed, read, listen to, view different media outlets, learn. And please vote. It is our duty, our obligation to participate in our democracy. To preserve it for the next generations.

Antisemitism and Trump “ Partisans asked: Isn’t Mr. Trump an ardent supporter of Israel who moved the US embassy to Jerusalem? Hasn't he condemned this heinous crime? Doesn’t he have Jewish grandchildren? All that is true. But Mr. Trump has also engaged in constant, vociferous attacks on minorities, immigrants and critics; he has given credence to fringe conspiracy theories and retweeted internet posts that are directly linked to antisemitic groups; he had to be dragged into disavowing the support of KKK leader David Duke; he tweeted an image of a Star of David over a pile of money; and he has described neo-Nazis who march chanting “Jews will not replace us” as “very fine people.” The Pittsburgh shooter, though critical of Trump for not having gone far enough, was clearly motivated by his attacks on immigrants.

RUSSIAN MILITARISM IN YOUR CITY OR FOLLOW THE WHITE RABBIT Part 1

Posted by Nate



  • A Russian tank in Ohio.
  • The hammer and sickle in front of the White House.
  • A car sticker in Moscow: “Made it to Berlin — will make it to Washington.”
  • The symbol of Russian imperial ambitions over the Statue of Liberty.
  • 8,000 marching in Russian military uniform and carrying Soviet flags in 20 American cities.
  • American daycare centers teaching history by the USSR textbook.
  • The US Senators approve it.
  • The Kremlin funds it.

Reporting on May 5–9, 2018 events in the US: The demonstration of military might in combination with the soft power campaigns raises concerns about the Russian expanding aggression against the West.

“Understanding just how extensive and coordinated Russia’s operations against the West are represents the first step in confronting — and defeating — Putin’s increased aggression, particularly as it becomes clear that the 2016 election interference was just a starting point. “If there has ever been a clarion call for vigilance and action against a threat to the very foundation of our democratic political system, this episode is it,” former director of national intelligence James Clapper said this spring“I hope the American people recognize the severity of this threat and that we collectively counter it before it further erodes the fabric of our democracy.”

Below is an analysis of the latest hybrid war campaign:

  1. Photos and description of the campaign events;

2. Brief background and cultural commentary on the nature and origin of the events;

3. Organizers of the events: individuals, agents and groups funded by the Russian Federation and the Administration of the Russian President Vladimir Putin;

4. Facilitators of the events: The US legislators and Senators

5. Other aspects of the Kremlin’s effort to divide and demoralize the US;

6. A few suggestions on pushing back.

BETRAYAL

Posted by Nate




Trump and Putin.

Treason.

Alexander Factor.

Epithets and heartfelt feelings… Epithets like “no words to describe it,” “inconceivable,” “ungraspable,” ”unimaginable” and so on… are NOT POWERFUL ENOUGH to describe the feelings of betrayal and perfidy our President brought to us with his abominable behavior in Helsinki this morning.

• Yes, Trump is Republican and we are Democrats. But patriotism, country-first, unity, and our life principles are not partisan concepts
• Yes, our Constitution is not conditioned or inured to deal with High Treason by… our own President. But, there are values, philosophies, ideologies, doctrines and human ethics that this country has founded and evolved over centuries... that the President is expected to live by…
But, apparently, not this President!

But why? WHY?

• Why is this man, representing the most powerful country in the world, the most admired morally inspired nation, the biggest donor of goodness in history…?
• Why is he kneeling before a thug, a KGB officer, a dictator; of the country that has given nothing to anyone…?
• Why is this man tarnishing and cursing this country’s legacies and its intelligence services…?
• Why is this man slandering our allies, blasting the European Union & NATO – our most reliable allies and friends, the most democratic, liberal and economically-successful countries in the world…

WHY & WHY & WHY?
My answer (theory, hypothesis et al) is simple: MONEY!

• Trumps knows that President cannot get a capital punishment in this country, High Treason or not.
• Trump knows that whatever he does, his base – dumb and deplorable as they are – will still support him… all the way to a Civil War.
• Trump also knows that he owes hundreds of millions of dollars to Russia, overtly or covertly. We know that too but still have not put our finger on it.

SO? By doing Putin’s bidding, in the most “inconceivable,” “ungraspable,” ”unimaginable” ways (epithets from above), he may earn his forgiveness of loans he owes to Putin and Russia. Perhaps, this is what he and Putin discussed for 2 hrs and 10 minutes without witnesses this morning. And both emerged triumphant... the deal is made!

Once again, no capital punishment, no shame (who doubts about that), good acting (he has experience) and a $Billion or so are written off by Putin. For good behavior, for attempting to break international order, for insulting everyone on behalf of Russia, for (well, you continue this list.)

This is the biggest con ever done in the world. Bravo, Trump. You exceeded all forms of wonder and shock, all science & political fiction imagination.

And how easy was it? Just by betraying his country!

What We Have Become.

Immigrants




What we have become.

Separation.

The bond.

I still remember Mom going away.

Much later I understood she was going to Siberia to visit my father in a labor camp.

I was 5 or 6 at the time.

I was crying, I didn't want her to go.

She was dressed, already leaving the house and I kept crying for a long time.

She really did not have a choice.

Much later when she told me about it, she said she cried all the way to the camp.

It was a 7-day ride on the train.

More than 60 years passed.

I still remember.

I am thinking of these kids.

I am thinking of their parents.

Is it for real? A nightmare maybe.

I am trying to imagine terrified kids, little kids.

They do not understand.

Where are they, where are mama and papa?

Some big, mean people took them.

Why are they being punished?

These kids. They are looking at this scary place.

The world looks distorted through their tears.

I know how hard it is not to cry.

All these kids feel is they are all alone.

Alone in this new and scary world.

Have they done something wrong?

All mothers, fathers, kids form a special bond.

They need each other, love binds them together.

Not just humans. Any creature on this planet.

Little ones die if forcibly separated from parents.

Apes and elephants, wolves and tigers. cats and dogs.

And yes, humans.

I cannot say that to break up families is inhumane.

Animals do not posses such cruelty, only some humans do.

I am this little one, thrown into the cage.

It is me crying!

I am the mother, the father.

These mean people took us away from each other.

They broke our hearts.

I, we cannot be silent, we cannot be indifferent

It is just not natural. For any living creature.

I want to scream: please stop this!

People, it is not about politics, or policies.

It is about families, mothers, fathers, children.

It is about love. It is about compassion.

It is about us being who we are – people.

Because if we allow this to happen, we lose our humanity, our souls.

We become Trump.

Pseudo Liberalism

Posted by Nate




"Pseudo liberalism” is the hypocritical, intellectual position of purporting to tolerate the validity of another’s position while actually dismissing that validity. The pseudo position reduces complex issues to the simplistic: this, which I believe, is “right” and that, which you believe, is "wrong". 
https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-exact-meaning-of-pseudo-liberal-1

Holocaust

We will live.

Never again.

I remember my childhood.

Every year I spent two months in summer camp.

Kids, cruel and stupid. Obviously repeating their parents' talk.

“Dirty Jews!”

“You Jews were hiding Nazis during the war!”

I remember our neighbor's housekeeper giving candies to local kids.

But not to us Jewish kids.

Only for kids with “good nationalities” she would say.

I knew, without fully understanding it.

I knew I was a “bad nationality”.

I was 4, playing outside when mom called me into the house.

Father was standing in the kitchen, two man standing at his sides.

My father picked me up, hugged and kissed me.

He told me he was going away, he had to do some work in another city.

Only much later did I find out where he went and why.

As a Jewish writer he was accused of “Jewish nationalism” and sentenced to 10 years in a labor camp in Siberia.

He was exonerated 4 years, after Stalin death.

When he finally came home I was eight then and of course I did not remember him.

“Father, are you really my father?” I asked.

He passed away two years later from a heart attack.

There were a few Jewish families living on our block.

I remember one day some drunkard came to our street and started yelling something about Jews.

That Hitler missed them and that he would take care of all these Jews.

That day Jewish families would not allow their kids to go outside.

Finally the guy got tired and left. Of course no police showed up.

After the 8th grade I entered a technical school in Minsk.

Whether by choice or by accident, 3 Jewish kids were placed in the same dorm room.

Israel and Trump.

Posted by Nate

Rise of Fascism in the USA.




Trumpland.

Trump America.

Is Trump good for Jews?

Many of Russian Jewish immigrants tell me that they support Trump because “Trump is good for Jews and for Israel.”

And in this article I am attempting to analyze the situation in America, Israel and the world to determine whether this assumption is correct or just wishful thinking.

While one cannot deny that antisemitism comes both from the left and from the right, one cannot compare (not yet) the university campus ill-informed, well-intended stupidity and the age-old hatred by Nazis, some Muslim groups (Farrakhan) and white supremacists.Anti-Semitic incidents surged nearly 60% in 2017. Trump's rhetoric is causing sharp divisions in America. And as a result there is rising antisemitism in our country. And we all know that if a situation in our country worsens (the economy, for example) the Jews will always be blamed.

A confluence of events in 2017 led to a surge in attacks on our community – from bomb threats, cemetery desecration, white supremacists marching in Charlottesville VA, and children harassing children at school,” said ADL CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt in a statement. “These incidents came at a time when we saw a rising climate of incivility, the emboldening of hate groups and widening divisions in society.”

It’s the largest one-year jump in the nearly 40 years since the ADL began tracking such information. This jump is happening at the same time that the ADL is reporting a 250 percent rise in white-supremacist activity on America’s college campuses.

Rise of Fascism in the USA.

American President?

Leader no more.

A backward country. 

Why am I writing this? It is not the first time I've written about our current American President. Will my opinion, my writing, change anything? I don't know. But I cannot be silent. It is too important. For me, for my family, for my kids and grand kids, for our country and for the world.

We have an impostor for president, my friends. And he poses danger for all of us.

Dark forces. Trump is just a symptom.
There are forces that want to wreck havoc in the free world. Forces of darkness and destruction.
Putin's Russia is the main force behind the problems in Europe and America.
Iran Theocracy that sees the democracies as a danger to Iran's Islamic rule.
Terrorist organizations around the world for whom Western democracies pose an existential threat.

Trump's America.

And now with Trump's election these forces are in power in our country.
Trump is just a puppet, a useful idiot. People who control these destructive events inside our country are Steve Bannon, Steven Miller and some other unscrupulous characters hiding behind the scenes.
This movement started long before Trump's election.
This destructive process aimed to destabilize American institutions is possibly due to the treasonous behavior of the Republican party. It enabled Trump and this anarchist gang to pursue it's own agenda of breaking down the social institutions in the US and establishing a social Darwinism.
The GOP is working for the upper 1% who's only motivation is self enrichment.
Here is a list of Trump “achievements” during 4 months of his presidency.
Betraying our allies. Think about it. Two major international deals that took several years to build are destroyed in a blink of an eye.
