Randy Boyd Endorses ‘Partnership for a New American Economy’ Approach to Illegal and Legal Immigration

Gubernatorial candidate Randy Boyd is a named member of the Partnership for a New American Economy (PNAE).

The PNAE has shortened its name to “New American Economy” but hasn’t changed its advocacy for comprehensive immigration reform which highlights the work ethic and perceived business ambitions of legal and illegal immigrants over native-born Americans.

Founded in 2010, the PNAE is a powerful and well-funded coalition led by business leaders and chambers of commerce which formed to convince the public and policymakers that comprehensive immigration reform like the 2013 “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill would help grow the economy and create jobs for Americans.

Included in PNAE’s “15 key economic issues of immigration reform in America” are:

  • Supporting legal status for the 11.4 million undocumented immigrants which PNAE says pay taxes and do the jobs American citizens won’t do, and despite being in the country illegally, “even start their own businesses.” In a 2014 Wall Street Journal oped, PNAE co-founder Rupert Murdoch said that illegal immigrants who are already here should be provided a path to citizenship.
  • Supporting resettlement of refugees who PNAE says that after living in the U.S. between 16-25 years are earning well above the income of refugees who have been here for five years or less. Moreover, PNAE believes refugees are the answer to reviving aging and declining communities.
  • Pushing state and local policymakers to support in-state college tuition for illegal immigrant students.

The PNAE’s Tennessee specific report denigrating the work ethic and educational achievement of native-born Tennesseans, claims there are 21,402 self-employed Tennessee immigrants generating $542 million in business income with predicted future voting power.

Missing from PNAE’s report, however, is the cost of small business sales tax evasion that has been discovered by the Tennessee Department of Revenue Special Investigations leading to indictment and arrest. For example, cases in the past several years include:

The PNAE is planning a renewed immigration reform blitz directed at the Trump administration working through local communities like Nashville by giving them “Gateways for Growth” money, mobilizing college students, and just like in 2013, telling elected officials the likely dire consequences for re-election if immigration reform as they define it is not accomplished.

In 2013, PNAE predicted that failing to pass the “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill would “impact the Republican Party in future campaigns for the White House.” That same year PNA  joined with Obama’s “Organizing for Action,” and “Republicans for Immigration Reform” to launch the “Largest-Ever Virtual March on Washington.” Jeb Bush was listed as a top supporter of the event.

Tennessee gubernatorial candidate Randy Boyd was an at-large delegate for  Jeb Bush in the Republican primary for president.

    This guy is a hard-core INTERNATIONALIST, and from what I observe he is making his rounds at Local Reagan Day Dinners to hob-knob with people who are unaware of his affiliations and intentions.

    Boyd is a rich elitist (does he send his kids to public school, live next door to the Mexican and Salvadoran gang members, or have to compete with the Illegal aliens low pay for his job?).

    What he sees is a picture of higher profits from their labor and never considers the costs to the citizens of Tennessee and what it means for his state. He doesn’t understand that they have come here not to become “American” but have come for the money rather than stay in their beloved homelands and change the sordid regimes that rule there.

    From what I’ve seen many of the illegal aliens and refugees have no respect for this country, denigrate it, won’t learn our language, love and fly the flags of the country they left behind that was a socialist nightmare. And with amnesty, they would vote for the socialist/progressive democrats.

    Randy Boyd disregards the problems of the “little people” (us) that come from mass migration and lack of assimilation and thinks only of himself and his cronies. Is this what we want from a governor?
