Immigration critics find their champion in Trump

August 5, 2017

The White House’s endorsement of legislation limiting legal immigration is a watershed moment for groups that have been pushing the idea for years.

Organizations calling for a reduction to legal immigration had in the past been relegated to the political fringes, with leaders in both parties shying away from direct support for their cause.

But the election of President Trump has fundamentally reshaped the politics of immigration, bringing their ideas into the mainstream debate.

Trump on Wednesday appeared alongside Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ala.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) to promote the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act, which would cut legal immigration to the U.S. in half.

Some of the most prominent organizations and think tanks that advocate for reduced immigration, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and NumbersUSA, enthusiastically backed the bill.

    On and on and on. Our Immigration laws have been so bastardized, like the 14th Amendment that people can’t remember what they are. Just enforcing our existing Immigration Laws will take care of the problem.

    As proof of the pudding, this newest kerfuffle about what is expected of immigrants to come here, is already into law along with quotas.

    We already have a population over 300 Million.When is enough,enough?I agree with the President.We must cut back and slow down our growth.Our growth is out pacing our jobs and our land.We simply cannot take in the whole world.We must get choosy about who comes and how many.

      For what it’s worth, my sentiments exactly. We should admit the best and the brightest from other countries who can improve our culture and well being, not whoever will leech off our generosity and reduce our progress, as most other countries do! Immigration is a privilege, not a right.

        That doesn’t fit with the DemonRAT view. They want the dumbest, so they can tell them who to vote for!

    We already have enough citizens (most well deserving) and ILLEGAL INVADERS (none deserving) on government benefits at taxpayers expense so why do we want to bring in more?
