Immigration Dividing The Nation

America is far from perfect, and anyone who has told you otherwise deserves to be sent to their room to think about what they’ve done. For a nation that prides itself as being the ‘land of opportunity’ or one with ‘liberty and justice for all,’ they should’ve specified that these opportunities and freedoms are only available to a select group of citizens. You could say that America is led by a racist demagogue with no concept of what it means to be a politician, or you could say that Americans are so disillusioned by their capitalist pangs of hunger that they’ve forgotten how to help one another, and you would be right about both, mainly because you’re entitled to your own opinion. 

However, there is no shortfall of American society more harmful than our immigration system. The land of opportunity, a majority of the time, seems more exclusive and difficult to enter than a  Vegas night club on a Friday night, even though both tend to be full of ignorant caucasian males.

According to U.S. government’s official citizenship website, to become a citizen through naturalization, one must have established permanent residence for at least five years (three years if you’re the spouse of a U.S. citizen), be eighteen years of age, possess the ability to read, write, and speak English, and pass the U.S. Naturalization Test. Seems simple enough, right? If it doesn’t, it is because we’ve made it this challenging intentionally. 

According to recent statistics, a little more than 33% of Americans could pass a basic multiple choice version of the U.S. citizenship test, meaning that there are current citizens that, based on the requirements for citizenship, should not be allowed to live here. More than 60% of those surveyed were unable to explain which countries the U.S. fought against in World War II. 

“With voters heading to the polls this year, an informed and engaged citizenry is essential. Unfortunately, this study found the average American to be woefully uninformed regarding America’s history and incapable of passing the U.S. Citizenship Test.”

Arthur Levine, President, Woodrow Wilson Foundation 

It would seem that if our own citizens cannot pass the test required to legally live in the U.S., wouldn’t it make sense to create an easier path to becoming a citizen? Answering this metaphorical question are the House Democrats, who announced on Tuesday plans to introduce a new bill to allow as many as 2.5 million people to apply for legal status. 

The bill, HR 6 — known as the Dream and Promise Act — is an upgraded version of the legendary DREAM Act, a legalization bill for illegal immigrants who’ve traveled to the U.S. as children, with added language to allow immigrants living with temporary humanitarian protections to apply for permanent status, according to Vox. During his time in office, President Donald Trump has made it clear to immigrants, far and wide, that he does not like them. He’s attempted to shut down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), which allows children of immigrants to live in the U.S. 

Though no official analyses have been conduced on Bill HR 6, several analysts believe that, although it will likely pass the House with flying colors, it will not survive the Republican Senate — or be approved by President Trump — in its current iteration. The bill, if passed, would allow both DREAMers and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) individuals to apply for legal status with an easier path to citizenship down the line. According to Vox, approximately 675,000 DREAMers are currently protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. 

In terms of full-fledged immigration reform, HR 6 is largely unfinished, and the Democratic leadership is well aware of this fact. With the upcoming 2020 election, the House is doing everything in its power to pass legislation in hopes of receiving support from a potential Democratic president. The bill is far from perfect, but like America, change takes time.

Where Will Oil Go After This Week’s Price Hit?

oil and gas news

Even though oil had been taking a beating over the last 2 trading sessions, its price rose to $69 per barrel on Friday. However, oil prices are experiencing the worst week of 2019 mainly due to potential economic slowdown and ever-growing oil inventories. US oil inventories have not been this high since July of 2017. And to top it all off, the trade war between the US and China is growing wearier every day further affecting oil prices.

Naeem Aslam, the chief market analyst at TF Global Markets, stated, “Clearly, bargain hunters are back in town.” He later added, “However, it is still set to record the worst week of the year and this is due to the increase in trade war tensions between the U.S. and China.”

Global Scale

The global benchmark for oil, Brent Crude, has experienced a decrease of 5 percent this week. However, Brent Crude this morning climbed $0.98 to value each barrel at $68.74. Due to US sanctions and voluntary supply cuts, a floor under prices held. Market analysts are expecting the oil market to recover off of the price floor.

“It is reasonable to doubt whether Saudi Arabia will be willing to step up its output given the latest decline in prices, […] we therefore expect to see higher oil prices again in the near future,” Explain analysts at Commerzbank.

In order to make the market tighter, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has been cutting oil supplies since the beginning of the year. 

Brent Crude’s prices reflect that the supply and demand of oil is tightly knit. According to UBS, Brent Crude should get back to $75 this month as supply gets tighter and tighter.

“Compliance of OPEC and its allies to the production cut deal remains high, while production from Iran and Venezuela is likely to again trend lower this month,” explains analyst Giovanni Staunovo,

Threats to people’s lives are constantly developing across the globe. In order to mitigate the growing fears of international conflict, security and defense companies have continuously innovated.

Living in constant fear is never sought and these companies understand that. Security innovations allow people in the US to walk around freely at the park or go watch their favorite artist at a concert with little to no fear.

New Potential for the Security Industry & Security Stocks

While developing security protocols and machines to fight threats overseas is important, home-grown threats have become a point of concern for US citizens. Mass shootings have increased, and the Muslim radicalization of American citizens is prevalent as ever. In order to make people safer, Liberty Defense has come to fill that hole.

Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) is developing HEXWAVE to revolutionize how facilities get secured. HEXWAVE can be used to detect any kind of weapon through 3D imaging. The technology utilizes both quickness and indiscretion to produce warnings of potential threats while respecting people’s privacy. 

While the product is still undergoing testing, Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN.V) has been taking steps to put HEXWAVE in front of the public. The company recently announced signing a memorandum of understanding with Utah’s Attorney General to beta test HEXWAVE there. The technology can be tested at sporting events, amusement parks, schools, and government buildings.

Bill Riker, Liberty Defense’s CEO, stated, “HEXWAVE can be applied in a variety of settings to provide a means to identify possible threats before they advance into attacks. We are excited that the Attorney General of Utah recognizes the potential value of this technology and the opportunity it provides for enhanced security in the state.”

What’s Should Be Expected Of Defense Companies?

When people think about the US armed forces they marvel at the gear used from tanks to jet planes. Most people do not take the moment to think where the US actually gets its arms from.

Report: This New Technology Could Transform A Multi-Billion-Dollar Industry!

One company responsible for US defenses is Lockheed Martin (LMT). Lockheed Martin develops and manufactures missile systems, aircraft, and training systems. They even provide cybersecurity services to governmental figures.

While Lockheed Martin controls a large portion of the defense industry, they show no signs of slowing down. Recently, the company made progress on its new production facility in Alabama. It is expected to be a 225,000 square foot facility to fulfill US Air Force needs.

The construction is expected to be finished in 2021. Executive Vice President, Frank St. John, explained, “All our employees come to work with an unwavering commitment to help our customers succeed in their mission to create a more secure and prosperous world.”
