It’s only about “preparedness,” promises an ICE head honcho. The “Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has requested that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) develop a strategy for how to provide ‘health care, sheltering’ and other services to immigrants in the event of a significant increase in immigration to the United States.” (Washington Examiner.)
More distribution and more taking—all against the backdrop of the nation’s rising poverty rates. Notwithstanding the controversial measures of poverty used by officialdom, “According to the U.S. Census Bureau data released Tuesday September 13th, 2011, the nation’s poverty rate rose to 15.1% (46.2 million) in 2010, up from 14.3% (approximately 43.6 million) in 2009 and to its highest level since 1993. In 2008, 13.2% (39.8 million) Americans lived in relative poverty.”
Poverty appears to be a vicious cycle in the US, but not for the reasons you’ve been led to believe: Poverty rates rise with immigration as the US immigration policies privilege poor, unskilled migrants. Masses of them.
But I digress. Let’s talk about treason and Janet’s pillage politics.
