On Thursday’s airing of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast, Trump 2020 Campaign Senior Advisor Mercedes Schlapp explained why the country run by former Vice President Joe Biden would be a disaster for American families and American workers.

“In fact, even Bernie Sanders has said that Biden would be the most progressive president that we’ve seen in decades.”

“I think we have to say goodbye to the so-called moderate career politician Joe Biden because he has made a political play to unite himself to Bernie Sanders and the Socialists,” said Schlapp. “And, in fact, even Bernie Sanders has said that Biden would be the most progressive president that we’ve seen in decades.”

She added, “Biden has decided to embrace this unity platform. Quote unquote. Let’s just think about this. This is about abolishing ICE. This is about halting deportations of illegal immigrants. This is about supporting the Green New Deal that would cost hundreds of thousands of jobs in the energy industry. This is about ensuring that we’re able to add more regulations, which we know would be burdensome over-regulation that would stunt American economic growth.”

The economy President Donald Trump built, which put money back in Americans’ pockets, is what Biden wants to reverse, Schlapp said. Instead, under a Biden administration, that money would be allocated for plans such as his clean energy proposal, which demands $2 trillion from the American taxpayer.

“And then, of course, what Biden has called from the beginning, which is that he would roll back President Trump’s tax cuts you’re talking, then that based on, for example, his big, clean energy plan that he has that would cost trillions of dollars as well as combining this with the unity platform, it’s gonna cause tax increases for about 82% of Americans,” she added.

Schlapp didn’t mince words saying Biden’s plan would literally “steal 585,000 jobs” from Americans.

“I mean, this is devastating for American families. This is devastating for the American worker,” she said. “And it’s why Joe Biden needs to be stopped.”

The Administration’s tax policies have allowed Americans the freedom to do things like buy a home or take their families on vacations. Under Biden’s government, there wouldn’t be such freedom because of the sweeping tax increases, Schlapp explained.

“There is this reality that we’re facing right now in terms of knowing that for Joe Biden, his economic plan would be incredibly destructive. The president has been able to build an America that’s energy independent. And you’re talking about for Joe Biden and for Bernie Sanders, they’ve launched a war on American Energy independence by saying that they’re going to rejoin the Paris climate agreement accorded that, they’re gonna mandate net-zero carbon emissions from homes, offices and all new buildings and get rid of fossil fuels. And It’s like such an extreme plan that, as we know, would be detrimental to the American worker.”

Illegal migrants refuse to leave Denver encampments, make demands of city including ‘fresh, culturally appropriate’ food and free lawyers

A group of illegal immigrants in Denver is not only refusing to leave encampments, but also have the audacity to take no actions until the city meets its demands. The migrants were organized enough to publish a document with 13 specific demands before they “acquiesce to Denver Human Services’ request to leave the encampments and move to more permanent shelters funded by the city” reports Fox News.

Demands were made following the Denver government obtaining a petition to have the migrants moved, according to the outlet. The Denver mayor has been under pressure from the city’s ongoing migrant crisis, making headlines and receiving stiff backlash earlier this year for proposing budget cuts to the city’s government, including cuts to the city’s police force, to fund more money for dealing with the city’s migrant crisis.

The list of demands was sent to Mayor Mike Johnston and included requests for provisions of “fresh, culturally appropriate” food, no time limits on showers and free immigration lawyers, the outlet reported. Further details of the demands read, “Migrants will cook their own food with fresh, culturally appropriate ingredients provided by the City instead of premade meals – rice, chicken, flour, oil, butter, tomatoes, onions, etc… Shower access will be available without time limits & can be accessed whenever… Medical professional visits will happen regularly & referrals/connections for specialty care will be made as needed.”

The migrants also insisted they get “connection to employment support, including work permit applications for those who qualify,” as well as “Consultations for each person/family with a free immigration lawyer.” The migrants insisted that if these are not met, they will not leave their tent community.

“At the end of the day, what we do not want is families on the streets of Denver,” Jon Ewing, a spokesman for Denver Human Services, told Fox 31.

The current encampment is situated “near train tracks and under a bridge,” Fox 31 noted, adding that it has been there for the last couple of weeks.

Ewing told Fox 31 the city just wants “to get families to leave that camp and come inside,” noting its offer will give migrants “three square meals a day” and the freedom to cook.

He also said the government is willing to work with people to compromise and help them figure out what kind of assistance they qualify for.

Ultimately, Ewing said, the city wants to work with migrants to determine, “What might be something that is a feasible path for you to success that is not staying on the streets of Denver?”
