Trump will end California's exploitation of Mexicans

Illegal immigration is the biggest exploitation of a people since slavery.

Many people make good money off this Fake Dream.

First, there are the coyotes who bring people to the USA illegally. They get money transporting bodies just like slave ships did.

Then there is the Mexican government, which dumps freeloaders on us -- the ones who seek a fatter government check from the gringos.

Call them soylent green because Mexico's chief export now is people.

Illegal aliens (and legal residents) send Mexico back $26 billion a year in what is euphemistically called remittances. Much of this is under-the-table money from shady employers, drug dealers, and of course, the trading of food stamps for cash.

Then there is the medical industry. The federal court's overturning of Proposition 187 nearly a quarter-century ago was a death sentence to the state of California. The middle class should have just left because the court ruled California must pick up the tab for illegal aliens.

Hospitals exploit this. Doctors too.

Schools as well. They are paid by the number of warm bodies they have.

The elites get cheap housekeeping and landscaping.

Factories and construction crews get cheap labor.

I could go on, but my point is this is a very lucrative industry that Governor Jerry Brown and all those other politicians in California protect. I am sure that a lot of money is kicked back to the politicians.

President Trump could go along to get along, but his mother was an immigrant and he knows this is wrong. Plain wrong. This exploitation must end.

"The Trump Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday night against California, saying three recently-passed state laws were deliberately interfering with federal immigration policies," Fox News reported.

"It marked the latest legal and political confrontation with the nation's most populous state, which the federal government says has repeatedly stood in the way of its plans to step up enforcement actions in the workplace and against criminal aliens."

Sessions told reporters, "The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies. We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America."

The emotional arguments about dreamers and fairness are a cynical facade for human trafficking.

Future history will not look kindly upon us. Our drug use, abortion, and exploitation of people of color from Mexico are stains on early 21st century America.

President Trump is the stain remover.


The media chose to go to war with Donald John Trump in 2017 rather than accept him as president.

The media chose poorly.

Fake News Follies of 2017 shows how and why.

What readers are saying:

Rob Miller: "What we have here is nothing less than a detailed, well written chronicle of exactly how the American press abandoned all semblance of scruples and journalistic ethics once Donald J. Trump became president. Like Surber's other books, this one will have you laughing out loud and you will find it difficult to put down."

PSD: "Like his other books, it is written with wonderful wit filled insight, rare in political commentary today. The style is one of gentle humor and common sense. It is refreshingly devoid of malice and partisan contempt, easy reading with not a few laughs along the way."

rurallbob: "Another winner from Don Surber."

Richard: "Funny, well written and well organized, Fake News Follies is an entertaining and thoughtful look at the news coverage provided by the press to the American people. Clearly they are not playing it straight. Sure, the press makes mistakes. It's inevitable. But when the totality of news stories not hewing to the known facts is collected and presented as it is in this volume there is but one explanation. Fake News. Don Surber brings to the subject insight that only a veteran newsman could provide. I wish this book would be read by everyone but especially people opposed to Trump because I think it would be sufficient to challenge even a closed off worldview."

A. Brogden: "Unlike Kurtz 's book, Media Madness, which sought to justify and explain away the lies and prejudices of the anti-Trump MSM, Surber relentlessly and methodically documents the tsunami of BS the press has served up since the upset victory by President Trump. Almost without exception everything Trump has done as president has been distorted, mischaracterized, or flat out lied about for over a year. This is how you get 90% negative reporting. This is how you get the press with 28% trust ratings. And by God this is how you get eight years of Trump as President."

A Kindle reader: "Easy read, a great compilation of biased new coverage of Trump before and after the election. I started out anti Trump and reluctantly voted for him for one reason only, He was not Hillary. This book is a great reference when people claim the MSM is not biased and does not publish fake news. It reinforces Glenn Reynolds description of the press as Democrat operatives with bylines."

Fake News Follies of 2017 is available on Kindle and in paperback.

Autographed copies are available. Email me at for details. I am including a "director's cut." I will give you the original Chapter 1 that I cut because while the chapter was amusing, it really had nothing to do with the Fake News Follies of 2017.


  1. I was recently in El Paso, and at the Wal-Mart there were a great number of cars with Chihuahua Mexico license plates.
    If the Mexican folks can come over to shop, why not come shopping and hop a Greyhound? Why pay a coyote?

  2. The Democrats - Slavery, Secession, and Segregation!

    -Mikey NTH

  3. Cue Big Dan the Bible salesman, "It's all about the money, boys!" - Elric

  4. We should tax those remittances sent to Mexico and use the money to pay for the wall. Put a 15% tax on any money wired to Mexico. It wouldn't stop the cash carried over the border but it would generate revenue from money wired home by the illegals. - GOC

    1. Why not 30 per cent? It's money from illegal activities, right? Or half, if the sender can't prove they are a U.S. citizen. As for physical transportation of cash across the border, increased patrols will nab cash going either way. - Elric

    2. I find it very irritating that Wal-Mart charges less to transfer a thousand bucks to Mexico (or the Philippines, or India) than it does to transfer a thousand bucks to Ohio.

  5. Annnnnnnnnd wait for it! A Fed "Judge" will block i, most likely from 9th Circus.

  6. Don this may be one of the best columns you've written. I have struggled to figure out how to condense some of these issues to talk about it, and you have just made it easy. Thank you, sir.

  7. Don't forget that the 2020 census is approaching -- all residents count, not just citizens. So the sanctuary states stand to gain additional Congressional seats based on their illegal alien residents.

  8. Agree with Tina, this is a terrific column that zeroes in on the key issue: "Illegal immigration is the biggest exploitation of a people since slavery."

    Lots of lib/progs have been propagandized to feel sorry for the poor illegal immigrants. Very few even take notice of the exploitation and the cruel oppression of the people making a bundle from this. Or of the suffering Americans suffer from extra crime, poverty, inability to get entry-level jobs and so on.

    Ultimately this is why Trump was able to get a foothold and eventually win. You'd think more of our governing class would get a clue, but no.

  9. Guess what happens when an illegal gets beat up in a bad drug deal.

    He gets everything fixed at the hospital and it all gets paid for because the hospital social services department gets him Medicaid.

    Isn't that wonderful? Now he has documentation!

  10. Importing virtual slave labor under the guise of compassion. Pretty much sums it up.

  11. deport illegal scum call 1 866 DHS2ICE

  12. Illegals undercut the low-skilled American worker. H1Bs undercut the skilled American worker. California would be Iowa with movies if it weren't for those two policies.
