Watch – Pete Buttigieg: Flood Small American Towns With Immigration To Grow Population

(Breitbart) – Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, is touting a new visa program to flood small American towns with legal immigrants to grow the regions’ populations — a boon to corporate investors, housing developers, and big business.

During a campaign stop in Merrimack, New Hampshire, Buttigieg touted his investor-friendly plan to inundate small American towns and rural communities with legal immigration for the sole purpose of driving up population growth.

Buttigieg said:

I’m proposing what we call “Community Renewal Visas” that when a community that is very much in need of growing its population, recognizes that, and makes a choice to welcome more than its share of new Americans that we create a fast-track, if they apply for an allotment of visas, that goes to those who are willing to be in those areas that maybe are hurting for population but have great potential.

Buttigieg’s population growth agenda mimics a plan by the Economic Innovation Group, an organization led by investors, that seeks to create a “Heartland Visa” to flood small American towns with more legal immigration to increase the population.

More residents in the U.S. through immigration deliver huge returns for Wall Street, big business, developers, and investors who benefit from the addition of millions of new consumers, as well as residents in need of housing and jobs.

For years, investors and the pro-migration lobby have sought to increase the nation’s population via legal immigration to drive up the need for additional housing, which in return provides developers and contractors with a series of new work while increasing housing prices for Americans.

Already, at current legal immigration levels of about 1.2 million admissions a year, the U.S. population is expected to grow to an unprecedented 404 million residents by 2060 — translating to more cars on the road, more urban sprawl, additional housing and commercial development, and increased living density for Americans.

Buttigieg also hinted that he would back Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) S. 386 to ensure that only Indian nationals obtain nearly all of the nation’s employment-based green cards over the next decade. The legislation is a bonus for outsourcing firms such as Cognizant and Infosys, as well as giant tech conglomerates like Amazon and Facebook, as it solidifies a green card system wherein only foreign workers on H-1B visas are able to obtain employment green cards by creating a backlog of seven to eight years for all foreign nationals.

“And so a couple of steps I think would help make [the legal immigration system] better: One is these country caps that exist that create a longer and longer clock on family reunification and other ways to make sure folks can get through that process,” Buttigieg said. “It’s based on numbers that were settled on in the 1980s. It makes no sense. And it has no relationship to our economic reality. So when we have work-based visas, those pathways to come to the country, it should be something that can be revisited and revised every two years in an administrative process instead of literally taking an act of Congress to go clear up.”

There are now 62 million immigrants and their U.S.-born children residing in the country, a record high, and nearly half of the residents in the country’s five largest cities speak another language other than English in their home.


  1. I guess this idiot doesn’t understand that most people live in small towns, villages because they WANT TO LIVE IN SMALL TOWNS, VILLAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. That’s strange. I thought agenda 2030 was all about getting everybody out of rural areas and into big cities!!! I thought it was about eliminating the need for cars. I thought it was about reducing the world population to under a billion people.

  3. more lib-dem insanity. we are already on
    an unsustainable path both socially and
    fiscally. can you imagine the problems
    of sprawl and gridlock.
    all the dems care about is more votes
    for perpetual power. nuke these morons.

  4. This is nothing more than a blatantly transparent move to dilute the Conservative vote in “flyover country” in order to enable the chance of an election flip in favor of the Democrats, thus effectively nullifying any possibility of a Conservative victory! Just wait and see!

  5. so we flood small towns with illegals who probably don’t have much command of the english language
    then if it’s a small town there probably lu isn’t enough work for the people already there.
    so now you force more people onto welfare and tax the middle class even more
    great idea Pete.

  6. and bring the sick criminals to your town to rape little girls and boys and not get into trouble, rob, kill get drunk kill families in crashes and spend a week in jail then let go oh yes sounds like a great deal for Small town USA

  7. Little tooth dragging Pete like all other progressive liberal filth need The illegal vote to cheat the honest Americans who made this country “Great “ !
