As Trump vows to shut the border to illegals, Gavin Newsom makes a suspicious trip to El Salvador…”Literally one out of six Salvadorans now lives in the U.S.”

With 1.5 million illegal aliens from Central America rolling into the U.S., President Trump has declared an emergency in order to construct a badly needed wall at the border, and now he has threatened to shut the gates of the border down, too, unless Mexico’s government quits enabling the problem. It’s a major issue, and a recent poll shows that many Americans want it dealt with as a top priority.

Who should show up to throw a stick into these turning wheels but California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom, who’s announced his first gubernatorial trip abroad to El Salvador for the purpose of “lifting up our immigrant communities and understanding the root causes of migration.”

Oh, really? Here’s his tell-nothing statement about it for the press:

While the Trump Administration demonizes those who are fleeing violence from Central America, California is committed to lifting up our immigrant communities and understanding the root causes of migration,” Newsom said in a statement. “I am looking forward to traveling to El Salvador in April to talk with the nation’s leaders and activists while deepening the bond between our families and communities.

One can just picture how this trip looks from the Salvadoran side of things. Here come Big Daddy, the California governor, the gringo who’s already laid out a banquet of goodies for Salvadorans in California, from free health care to free education, to sanctuary state protections to enable illegals to work, coming there supposedly to find out how he can offer…even more goodies to Salvador’s uneducated lower middle classes. The idea is to get even more of them to come over. Big Daddy comes down with the Santa sack full of goodies.

From the Salvadoran perspective, his reception is likely to be warm from the Salvadoran government, which benefits hugely from the remittances sent home by El Salvador’s mostly illegal aliens, allowing it to finance itself and employ ever larger numbers of bureaucrats without having to house, educate, or medically care for its nationals. This is one reason why remittance economies tends to underdevelop a country, according to the World Bank.

Last year, in fact, that game was going full speed. El Salvador’s remittances hit a record $5.47 billion. Literally one out of six Salvadorans now lives in the U.S., and 680,000 of those make their home in benefit-rich California. Salvadoran politicians actually campaign for office in California, owing to the sizable number of Salvadoran voters, many of whom are here illegally, signaling that there’s a lot of work to be had for the newest (and least likely to be legal) migrants in the states now, most of which is coming from California. From the Salvadoran private sector, maybe not so much, given that the country is losing a critical component of its work force and is already looking at labor shortages even as the government grows bigger and more powerful from the remittances. Big California Daddy coming in to scoop up more of the Salvadoran labor force may well prompt some anger and disgust in those quarters.
