The crisis at the U.S. border with Mexico has fueled many headlines in recent years, from its impact on small border towns such as El Paso to the spike in Fentanyl hitting our nation’s streets to the impossible task of housing the influx of migrants. But perhaps the most disturbing — and least reported on — aspect of the steady stream of asylum-seekers is the devastating effect it is having on the labor market.
According to Breitbart, while working Americans are struggling to make ends meet amid soaring inflation, President Joe Biden’s deputies are “flooding the labor market with one foreign worker for every young American who joins the economy.”

“This 100 percent inflation of the nation’s labor supply cripples Americans’ ability to negotiate decent wages in their national labor market, and also supercharges the inflation of housing prices,” the outlet reported.
“The loss of bargaining power shifts more than $50 billion every month from ordinary Americans to investors and CEOs,” Breitbart explained. “That wealth transfer is rarely admitted by Democrats and Republicans, or by establishment media outlets, most of whom prefer to shout about border chaos.”
But, sure… “Replacement Theory” is just a white supremacist, racist conspiracy theory.

In December, federal data showed that Alejandro Mayorkas — the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security and Biden’s border chief — let 120,562 single adult migrants into the States, compared to just 5,592 single adult migrants allowed in by President Donald Trump in December 2020.
To put it in context, Mayorkas officially allowed 21 single adult migrants to cross the border for every one single adult migrant that Trump waved through — and that’s in addition to the at least 70,000 “gotaways” who managed to dodge Mayorkas’ agents and sneak across.
“Mayorkas has repeatedly vowed that gotaways can stay and work in the United States so long as they do not commit criminal felonies,” Breitbart noted.
Under the Trump-era Title 42 rule, Mayorkas could have legally prohibited all the migrants from entering the U.S., but he elected to exclude just one in five or 40,000 of them in December.
“That is a steep drop-off from October, when he excluded 80,000 migrants in the weeks before the November election,” reports Breitbart.
So, clearly, whether Mayorkas actually defends our borders is dependent upon which way the political winds are blowing.
The “huge inflow of labor,” according to Breitbart, will damage our nation’s economy for years to come, which puts America not first, but last.
“The huge inflow of labor also reduces the marketplace pressure on employers to invest in high-tech, productivity-boosting machinery,” the outlet says. “That inflow of workers — and consumers — also pushes the U.S. economy towards a low-tech services and retail economy instead of a high-tech manufacturing and export economy.”
As rents and housing costs are driven up for young Americans, the massive influx of migrants seeking employment “also shifts wealth from young to old.”

And the reported 200,000 illegals entering the States per month is just the tip of the iceberg.
Between the so-called “parole” pathways that Mexico-based, progressive non-profits operate, the legally-allowed foreign temporary workers, and the “roughly 1 million legal immigrants allowed by Congress,” the number of foreign workers flooding the labor market is much, much higher.
All told, Mayorkas is overseeing the inflow of roughly 200,000 single adults, perhaps 30,000 additional job-seeking parole adult migrants, plus roughly 80,000 legal temporary workers, plus about 60,000 work-ready legal immigrants.
This flood of roughly 370,000 foreign workers is likely greater than 350,000 young Americans who turn 18 every month of the year.
On top of all that, Mayorkas, whom Breitbart describes as “a Cuban-born, pro-migration zealot,” brought in 81,450 “family units” of adults and children and 12,294 unaccompanied minors, “most of whom will also seek work.”
It’s the continuation of the federal government’s long-held economic policy of “Extraction Migration,” which “extracts vast amounts of human resources from needy countries and uses the imported workers, renters, and consumers to grow Wall Street and the economy,” according to the conservative outlet.
The result is lower wages for American workers, higher housing costs, and a reduction in the “political clout of native-born Americans.”
