Image of the Day: Americans' Shrinking Earnings Under Joe Biden

Joe Biden tells Americans that he's helping them by building "from the bottom up and the middle out."  But the numbers don't lie, and the ugly reality is that he's only dragging us all toward the bottom.  Throughout his presidency, wage gains (green) have been consistently exceeded by inflation (blue), meaning loss in real earnings (red):

1 Stop the Migrant Invasion

Americans don't have to surrender their country to the millions wading across the Rio Grande and crashing fences to get in. In Europe, ordinary people are fighting to save their continent and their standard of living from the impact of mass migration. Americans need to watch these Europeans and be encouraged. Resisting the cost of housing, feeding…

2 Growing Latino Support for Border Wall, Strict Enforcement

A new poll by Axios and Noticias Telemundo finds that 42% of Latino Americans support building a wall or fence along the entire U.S.-Mexico border. When pollsters asked the same question in December 2021, the number was 30%. That's a significant increase as the border crisis created by President Joe Biden's policies worsens. It's also a more severe…

3 The Reality of Migrant Crime

There's been an ongoing political debate lately about crimes committed by migrants who entered the United States illegally. Actually, there's not much to debate about their first unlawful act – entering the United States without authorization – but much disagreement about how many illegal border crossers commit crimes…

4 New York Doomed to Be Migrant Central – Other Cities Take Note

Mayor Eric Adams' agreement, announced Friday, to limit the time migrants can stay in shelters at taxpayers' expense, is smoke and mirrors. It's designed to fool you into thinking he's solving a problem when he's actually caving to the migrant industrial complex. Adams claims the agreement, with the Legal Aid Society and the Coalition for the Homeless…

5 Is Laken Riley's Life Worth Less Than George Floyd's?

George Floyd's death during a police chokehold on May 25, 2020, ignited nationwide protests to reform police procedures. Referring to Floyd's ordeal, former President Donald Trump said, "It doesn't get any worse than that," and within three weeks Trump signed an executive order establishing an abuse of force database and calling for improved…

6 Biden's OTHER Immigration Calamity

Recent polling shows President Joe Biden's open-border immigration policy is now ranked as the No. 1 or 2 problem facing America – in part because of the havoc in our large cities where the millions of migrants are now residing.  Americans are a welcoming and generous people, but this policy of laying out a welcome mat to any…

7 Migrant Surge Brings Killers and Criminal Gangs

Former New York City Police Department Commissioner Ray Kelly, the department's longest-serving commissioner, cautioned on Sunday that New York City's quality of life "has really deteriorated." Migrant crime is a major reason. Venezuela's notorious Tren de Aragua gang and El Salvador's feared MS-13 – what former FBI Assistant…

8 Dems' Open Border Trickery – Gaming the Census

New York is Migrant Central – the No. 1 destination in the country for illegal border crossers – and it's no accident. New York's Democratic politicians benefit from the deluge. The more migrants come here, the more congressional seats and clout in the electoral college New York is able to maintain.  Elon Musk…

9 Migrant Crime Turning Cities Into War Zones

Criminals posing as asylum seekers are turning American cities into war zones.  The Venezuelan gang Tren de Aragua, feared for how it tortures its victims, is setting up business in New York City, police sources reveal.  Gang members recruit migrants from shelters and as they come off buses from Texas, putting them to work in retail theft…

10 Biden, the Senate and the Border Fiasco

Joe Biden is supposed to know something about legislating. After all, he spent 36 years in the U.S. Senate. He must have learned something in those decades. And yet Biden is the driving force behind one of the biggest Capitol Hill fiascos in years: the rapidly imploding "deal" on the U.S.-Mexico border, plus aid to Israel, Ukraine and Taiwan…

11 Dems Roll Out Welcome Mat for World's Criminals

Maria Manaura, who's been arrested at least eight times in the six months since she arrived in New York City from Venezuela, is living at the Row NYC hotel, once hailed for its unbeatable Times Square location and front-row view of the theater district. Now it's drug-infested and violent, but still costs taxpayers $500 a night for each of the 1,300…

12 Finally, Biden Admits: There's a Crisis at the Border

What do you call it when somewhere between 6 and 8 million people enter the United States illegally in the course of three years? Many people would call it a crisis, albeit a man-made one, since the reason so many have been able to cross illegally into the United States is the refusal, by President Joe Biden, to enforce immigration laws that authorize…

13 Yes, America Is Being Invaded

Across the globe, hostile nations like Russia are using migration as a weapon of war. War is being waged with migrants, instead of tanks, to destabilize and even bankrupt a country and facilitate terrorists attacks from within.  Migration is being used to attack Finland, Italy, France, Poland and – no surprise – …

14 Pro-migrant Dems Playing Russian Roulette With Our Safety

If you're rushing to the airport and forget your photo ID, good luck being allowed on the plane.  But many migrants without "an acceptable form of identification," according to airport signs, don't need a photo. They get special treatment.  Migrants who have entered the country using President Joe Biden's new CBP (Customs and…

15 Free Health Insurance For Migrants Is Lunacy

Across the globe, millions of people are on the move, defying borders and violating laws to escape poor countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, and break into rich countries. The United States is their No. 1 destination. The U.S. needs a strategy to limit the burden on Americans and protect our quality of life. Instead, the Democratic Party merely…

16 Stop Funding the 'Rights for Migrants' Legal Scam

As a record number of migrants invade the U.S., wreaking pain on New York City and other communities, one group is winning big-time: the public advocacy lawyers. Their business is to constantly sue to win more so-called rights for migrants. Rights to shelter, rights to meals, rights to health care, even the right to vote in local elections. Who pays…

17 The Profiteering Migrant-Industrial Complex

This week, New York City Mayor Eric Adams warned of "extremely painful" cuts to city services to offset the money going to shelter and feed migrants. But even worse is how the money is being wasted. Migrants complain the prepared meals delivered to them three times a day – including chicken alfredo, beef enchiladas and even…

18 Give Us Educated, Skilled Immigrants Yearning to Support Themselves

When Emma Lazarus wrote her famous line in 1883, "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free," there was no Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers and government-run shelters. Those who came knew they were on their own. Now they arrive with their hands out. A country can have open borders or a generous social…

19 Democrats' Noncitizen Voting Scam

If you think offering migrants luxury hotel rooms, free meals, laundry service, transportation, health care and immigration lawyers is excessive, just wait until they can vote. Democrats are pushing to allow noncitizens to vote in local elections in New York City, Boston and other municipalities, as well as statewide in Connecticut.  The number…

20 Joe Biden's Intentional Crisis

The continuing incursion of illegal border crossers into the United States is the most astonishing story in American politics. There have been days recently in which 10,000 people crossed illegally into the country – and remember, in a long-ago era, when Barack Obama was president, a tenth of that was considered a crisis.  The…

21 In Migrant Crisis, New York Still Can't Face Reality

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has taken a leading role among Democrats in conceding the damage done to local communities by the Biden administration's policy of allowing millions of illegal border crossers to remain in the United States. Adams recently raised eyebrows in his party by saying the arrival of thousands of illegal asylum-seekers, with…

22 Migrant Surge a Disaster For Learning

Democratic politicians and the liberal media made the first day of school all about welcoming migrant children. That's sheer propaganda. Parents deserve the truth. The migrant surge is a disaster for their kids.  The surge will worsen our education system's twin failures: plunging math and reading scores, and the failure to ensure newly arriving…

23 New York City: A Sanctuary No More

Recently, New York Mayor Eric Adams announced that the city has printed thousands of flyers it plans to distribute at the U.S.-Mexico border. The flyer has a simple message to illegal border-crossers: Don't come to New York. The headline is in all caps: "UPDATES TO ASYLUM-SEEKERS FROM THE CITY OF NEW YORK." The flyer goes on to say that…

24 MS-13: From El Salvador to Your Neighborhood

MS-13 gang members commit savage crimes – beheading their targets with machetes, hacking off their hands, burning them to death, dismembering them. Demonic acts. If you think these crimes won't happen where you live, keep reading. The gang's rule is "kill, rape, control." Members are required to kill. MS-13 brings terror…

25 Democrats' New Rule: Migrants First, Everyone Last

Democrats' new rule: If you're not a migrant, go to the back of the line. Gary Moretti and his fiancee booked 30 rooms at The Crossroads Hotel in Newburgh, New York, for their bridesmaids and guests for a June 24 wedding. But New York City Mayor Eric Adams' migrant-first policy demolished their plans. Over the last two weeks, Adams has rolled out…

26 Biden's Open Borders Bringing Diseases to Your Neighborhood

Ready for another pandemic? New York City's health commissioner announced last week that the influx of migrants from the southern border – more than 50,000 to New York City alone in the past year – is delivering contagious diseases, including tuberculosis and polio, to our neighborhoods. The same disease threats are…

27 Is Mexico Really an American Friend?

Left-wing Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador recently praised a visiting President Joe Biden: "Just imagine: There are 40 million Mexicans in the United States - 40 million who were born here in Mexico, (or) who are the children of people who were born in Mexico!" Why wouldn't Obrador be delighted? Since Biden took office in January…

28 Biden and the Sanctuaries' Dilemma

This column has written previously about the fundamental difference between Republicans and Democrats when it comes to the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border. When confronted with more than 2 million illegal border-crossers overwhelming U.S. authorities on the border last year – and 250,000 more crossers last month indicates the figure…

29 Hotel America Needs to End

My sister-in-law, a nurse on Cape Cod, wants to visit New York City and is struggling to find an affordable hotel. If she were a Venezuelan migrant who had just arrived in the Big Apple on a bus from the southern border, she'd have a shot at a room at the four-star Row hotel, steps from Times Square. Or a room at a SpringHill Suites by Marriott, a…

30 With Visit, Biden Makes Things Worse on Border

Republicans have spent two years demanding that President Joe Biden visit the U.S.-Mexico border. They wanted Biden to face the real-world consequences of his border policy and the burden it has placed on Americans not only in the border states but around the country. Now the GOP has gotten its wish; Biden visited the border at El Paso, Texas, on Sunday…
