Dana With The Data Migrant Crisis: Are Migrants REMOVING African Americans? | Mark Carter


New Jersey is one of the smallest and most densely populated states in the United States. The state's proximity to major metropolitan areas like New York City and Philadelphia and its extensive transportation network have made it a popular destination for people looking to live close to urban centers while still enjoying a suburban or rural lifestyle. In addition to its location, New Jersey's once-strong economy and job opportunities have also attracted people from outside countries. The state is home to many large corporations and industries, including pharmaceuticals, finance, and technology, which have created a high demand for insourced skilled workers with the help of Bloomberg New American Economy and many other multi-million dollar non-profits, special interest groups, and political leadership throughout the state, with the goal in mind to include insourced workforce with American workforce. As well as to replace the American workforce to avoid Fair Labor Standards (FLSA) plus U.S. Department of Labor's regulations that ensure fair compensation and safety measures in the American workplace.


Moreover citizens who are employees can be treated fairly. This rule of law does not apply to insourced workers, vetted or non-vetted. This means that the industries mentioned above can obtain a workforce where general rules do not apply. As well as save money because insourced workers work for less money. Furthermore, New Jersey's diverse cultural landscape, access to quality education, and scenic attractions have made it an attractive place to live for many people. While the state's small size and high population density can lead to issues like traffic congestion, housing shortages, and homelessness for citizens, it also offers many benefits, a rich cultural heritage and easy access to major cities and attractions. Unfortunately, with the implosion of millions of vetted and unvetted immigrants pouring across the border. Per the advocacy of N.J.'s high-ranking officials and local government, plus multi-million dollar non-profits. Many citizens and their children have been placed in harm's way. 


N.J.'s unwillingness to enforce rent control policies while being a Sanctuary State has taken a toll on lifelong citizens who are being systematically and unfairly pushed out of the state. One of the biggest flaws that the state of New Jersey carried out was providing federal funds to build project housing and giving money to, for example, Jared Kushner's real-estate development agency to the tune of approximately $800 million dollars Feb 2000 https://www.hud.gov/sites/documents/DOC_9906.PDF The allowance of life-saving funds to build project housing became a double whammy for the American worker in N.J. who's pay did not match the cost of living at the time till the present was then flipped into "affordable housing units" where with the predicted units of affordable housing was less than the agreed upon number of units for project or subsidized housing. Real-estate developers like Kushner primarily utilized insource workers. Hence not only did New Jersey citizens come up short in the area of fair housing project units. But also was cut out from acquiring quality jobs in the field of carpentry, such as

  • Joisters

  • Cabinet makers & installers

  • Flooring installers,

  • Framers

  • Roofers

  • Building Inspectors, plus more

were primarily given to insourced workers. Thanks to real-estate company developers like Kushner, N.J. citizens could have used those jobs plus housing resources but could not access opportunities because of before mentioned stumbling blocks. As a result of undermining practices that go against the well-being of citizens. That, by the way, was approved by state policymakers who worked directly with nonprofits in New Jersey. It's as if no one counted the actual cost or impact on citizens by making N.J. a Sanctuary State. Plus, giving millions upon millions of tax dollars to real-estate developers who had no intention of hiring N.J. citizens. Which is not the N.J. citizen's fault. New Jersey citizens were not invited to sit in on the meeting that would silently disrupt, plus set up a portion of citizens to not only be jobless but also, in the end, homeless, plus mass incarcerated for not being able to pay a fine. It's like a domino effect that's targeted at citizens. And not federal lawbreakers.


These irresponsible actions of state policymakers, governors, and nonprofits throughout the last 30 years have put American children and their families in harm's way, which is against the laws of the Constitution. Worse yet, once citizens are repeatedly set up for failure, many find it challenging to secure a decent job with fair pay. Because citizens once incarcerated for not paying extremely high fines are now considered criminals. Despite the fact that the fine was allocated under a non-violent non-drug related charge in many cases. Whereas as-if planned insourced workers step in with the offer of working for lower wages. While being protected and not being taken advantage of by the state of N.J., the immigrant population becomes the perfect candidate for the careers offered by employers who prefer insource workers compared to the American workforce. More often than not, immigrant populations obtain positions.


The effects of homelessness on American citizens

Homelessness can have a devastating impact on families. It can cause stress and trauma, resulting in adverse mental and physical health outcomes for both parents and children. Homeless families often struggle to access basic necessities such as food, shelter, and healthcare, which can further exacerbate their hardships. Children experiencing homelessness may miss out on education and developmental opportunities, which can impact their long-term prospects. Homeless families may also face stigma and discrimination, making it difficult to access social services and find stable housing. Overall, homelessness can create a cycle of poverty and instability that can be difficult for families to break out of without adequate support and resources. The current struggle of long-term Black citizens, predominantly, is a direct result of the state and others in America and outside America's choice to break federal law while breaking Constitutional laws all at the same time. Said careless actions put all citizens in harm's way. And trouble in paradise. https://www.echonewstv.com/post/homelessness-in-new-jersey-the-invisible-and-forgotten


This is how N.J. broke both Federal and Constitutional Laws. 

New Jersey is considered a sanctuary state, as it has implemented policies aimed at protecting undocumented immigrants from being detained and deported. In 2018, Governor Phil Murphy signed an executive order that barred state officials from cooperating with federal immigration authorities in most cases. The order limits the types of information that state and local law enforcement can share with federal immigration authorities. It prohibits state and local police from detaining individuals based solely on their immigration status. Additionally, New Jersey has implemented policies that provide support and resources to undocumented immigrants. For example, the state has established a legal defense fund to help immigrants facing deportation and has allocated funding for programs that provide education, healthcare, housing, mortgages, business loans, and other services to undocumented residents. While there is no official legal definition of a sanctuary state, New Jersey's policies are generally considered to be in line with the goals of the sanctuary movement, which seeks to protect undocumented immigrants from being arrested by federal immigration authorities. https://www.uua.org/immigration/witness/partners/newsanctuary



Although the enforcement of rights and protections for immigrant populations are enforced in New Jersey, unfortunately, said measures seriously put citizens' rights, safety, and housing resources as Wendy Williams of the Wendy Williams Show would say: "Put that where? Back there?" In turn, citizens who are direct descendants of Union War Army soldiers who put their lives on the line to win the Civil War. They are now unfairly treated, but the descendants of Mexican Confederate allies (for example) are given complete preferential treatment, which is crazy. Example below:


The History Of Alliance Per The Confederate Union and Mexico

Northern Mexico was an ally with Confederate states in America, referred to as (CSA.) Mexicans supported Confederates long before the Emancipation Proclamation. Mexico partnered with Jefferson F. Davis, an American politician who served as the first and only president of the Confederate States of America from 1861 to 1865. Hence, North America had two presidents at one time. Davis represented Mississippi in the United States Senate and the House of Representatives as a member of the Democratic Party before the American Civil War. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jefferson_Davis


The Mississippi House of Representatives for the Democratic Party Jefferson F. Davis was the Military Commander of the Federales in Northern Mexico. Davis partnered with North Mexico because both entities sought to continue chattel slavery after the Civil War. And there was once empirical evidence on Google of how Mexico continues up until this day to be a strategic ally to Confederates. But as of the past couple of years, said research has been removed from Google's engine site. Which is strange, but I digress. Sometimes, ending a relationship with an unfaithful partner becomes necessary because they may not have your best interests at heart. This rule of thumb can also be applied to politicians elected by citizens. New Jersey citizens have the right to request the enforcement of impeachment. Plus, the enforcement of Federal laws for their own safety and well-being. https://www.historynet.com/the-confederados/?f


What is impeachment?

Impeachment is a process by which a government official can be removed from office for misconduct. In the United States, impeachment involves several steps: 

1. Investigation: A formal investigation is conducted into the alleged misconduct of the government official. This investigation is usually carried out by the House Judiciary Committee or a special committee appointed for this purpose.

2. Articles of Impeachment: If the investigation reveals evidence of misconduct, the House of Representatives can vote to impeach the official by approving articles of impeachment. These articles outline the specific charges against the official. 

3. Trial: The Senate conducts a trial to determine whether the official is guilty of the charges outlined in the articles of impeachment. The proceedings are presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. 

4. Verdict: The Senate votes on whether to convict the official after the trial. A two-thirds majority is required to convict and remove the officials from office. If the official is convicted and removed from office, they may be barred from holding future government positions. The impeachment process is a constitutional mechanism designed to hold government officials accountable for their actions and maintain the integrity of the office they hold.


Per the U.S. Constitution, Article One shares that Congress has the power to impeach federal officials. An official can be impeached for treason, bribery, and “other high crimes and misdemeanors.” The preferential treatment of insourced workers needing housing has not only put citizens and their children in danger. But it has also allowed the willful actions of gerrymandering along with purposeful overcrowding of the Spanish-speaking immigrant populations to undermine Black citizens' voting power pre-meditatively. All of the before-mentioned hassles could have been prevented if New Jersey's 100-plus Black politicians hadn't depended so much on the Hispanic vote to get them into office. Hence compromising plus placing the Hispanic demographic before the needs and protection of Black citizens. So, like Bobby Brown's song said, "It looks like we're going to have to take control." Citizens have the right and ability to request that the law (as well as laws) must be enforced. https://www.brennancenter.org/our-work/research-reports/gerrymandering-explained


Why is it important that laws are enforced?

The enforcement of laws is necessary for several reasons. Firstly, laws are put in place to maintain order and ensure the safety and well-being of citizens. Without enforcement, these laws would be meaningless and fail to serve their intended purpose. Secondly, the enforcement of laws acts as a deterrent to potential offenders, preventing them from committing crimes and causing harm to others. Finally, law enforcement helps uphold the principles of justice and fairness, ensuring that those who break the law are held accountable for their actions and face appropriate consequences.


Looking forward to your feedback on chat.
