President Joe Biden should smash the public’s growing opposition to migration by importing migrants into Americans’ jobs, according to Mike Bloomberg, the multi-millionaire, pro-migration chief of the Bloomberg news empire.
By “taking more steps forward, [Biden] can strengthen the economy, support cities, and strike a blow against xenophobia [emphasis added] and candidates who promote it,” Bloomberg wrote Wednesday.
Wealthy Bloomberg is saying that “the American people are the problem, and if you change our society through mass immigration, you’ll reduce the political opposition that he’s encountering,” Jon Feere, who served as an immigration official in former President Donald Trump’s administration, told Breitbart News.
It “is a perfect example of how the wealthiest people in our society … have insulated themselves to such degree that they couldn’t care less the about the [damaging] impact on our middle class and low wage workers,” Feere added.
Bloomberg is a political progressive with $100 billion in the bank in a nation where half of Americans have a net worth below $123,000.
Based in New York, Bloomberg and his billionaire peers have repeatedly called for more migrants to replace the many Americans who do not meet their economic priorities.
“This country needs more immigrants, and we should be out looking for immigrants,” Bloomberg told the San Diego Union-Tribune in January 2020, adding:
For those who need an oboe player for a symphony, we want the best one. We need a striker for a soccer team, we want to get the best one. We want a farmworker, we want to get the best one. A computer programmer, we want to get the best one. So we should be out looking for more immigrants.
But Bloomberg’s call to use migration for political purposes — “a blow against … xenophobia” — is an elite-driven escalation of the current fight with populists over migration, jobs, housing, and wages.
Unfortunately for Bloomberg, Americans are increasingly opposed to migration and its damaging impact on their pocketbooks, communities, hospitals, schools, and politics.
For example, Biden received a 23 percent approval rating for his border policy, according to a September poll conducted by the Washington Post and ABC News. Sixty-four percent declared opposition to Biden’s policies.
