GOP leader Kevin McCarthy used an interview with establishment outlet Axios.com to reaffirm his populist promises to Breitbart News of pro-American immigration, economic, and technology policies.
“On immigration: McCarthy reiterated to Axios his recent pledge to Breitbart’s Matt Boyle — that he’ll not consider any legislation offering legal status to undocumented immigrants, preemptively ruling out comprehensive immigration reform,” said the January 13 report in Axios, which is headlined “McCarthy’s plot to build the House of Trump.”
The report continues:
On issue after issue, he’s laying down markers continuing the dramatic transformation of GOP leadership since 2017.
Where Ryan focused on tax cuts and fostered friendly relations with corporate America, McCarthy is publicly excoriating the Chamber of Commerce, threatening crippling regulations on social media companies and planning to inject an anti-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) mindset into the work of every congressional committee possible.
“We’re going to be more aggressive than in the past,” McCarthy told Axios.
“We’re not going to sit back and just take a ‘no’ for an answer…it can’t be business as usual.”
The article tries to portray McCarthy’s positive pocketbook politics as negative choices, for example, saying: “aggressive tactics targeting undocumented immigrants, liberals and corporate America … aggressive tactics targeting undocumented immigrants, liberals and corporate America … he’s signaled a hostile relationship with key emissaries of corporate America … McCarthy has made clear he wants nothing to do with the Chamber if the GOP returns to power.”
The article even uses the “comprehensive immigration reform” term, which is the establishment’s poll-tested euphemism for a cheap-labor, low productivity economy of consumers instead of high-tech producers.

Many polls show that Americans strongly oppose labor migration even as they also want to like immigrants and to allow some immigration.
But the bipartisan federal government has exploited the public’s decency since 1990 to extract tens of millions of migrants from poor countries to boost U.S. businesses as workers, consumers, and renters.
The extraction-migration policy also widens regional wealth gaps nationwide. McCarthy’s Bakersfield district in inland California, for example, has largely been ignored by job-creating investors. The investors can ignore Bakersfield and its job-seekers because they use the government-provided supply of migrants and foreign contract workers to staff new businesses near their coastal homes.

The migration strategy also curbs Americans’ productivity, shrinks their political clout, radicalizes their democratic, compromise-promoting civic culture, and allows wealthy elites to ignore despairing Americans at the bottom of society.
