Americans’ Satisfaction with U.S. Immigration Levels Plummets


Americans’ Satisfaction with U.S. Immigration Levels Plummets
Barbara Jordan vindicated, again
By Andrew R. Arthur on February 6, 2023
President Biden is scheduled to deliver his State of the Union (SOTU) address on Tuesday, and in advance of that annual event Gallup polled 1,011 U.S. adults between January 2 and 22 to assess the “Mood of the Nation”. Its headline says it all, “Americans Still Glum About State of the Union in Most Areas”, but one area of particular discontent is “immigration”. The late Barbara Jordan is vindicated, yet again.

The “State of the Union” Address. Article II, section 3, clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution, which delineates the president’s legislative role, states that the chief executive “shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient”.

That constitutional duty is the basis for what has come to be known as the “State of the Union” address, though it wasn’t always called that. From 1790 to 1946, it was the “Annual Message”, but informally was known as the “State of the Union” between 1942 and 1946, when the current name was adopted.

Presidents Washington and Adams delivered their SOTU addresses in person between 1790 and 1800, but Thomas Jefferson set a trend that lasted for more that a century by skipping the ceremony and sending his SOTU in writing in 1801.

And that fact means less than nothing to the current government of the people. 9999hair out0000

The time for which this nation needed "immigration"... is over.

We're "full up".
We don't need no mo'.

Close the borders to ALL would-be immigrants (with very few exceptions).
Dismantle the Statue of Liberty and send it back to France.
This is a serious post, intended to be taken seriously.
