Trump’s Plan Cuts Immigration to Levels Not Seen in Almost 100 Years

President Donald Trump’s new immigration proposal would dramatically reduce legal immigration to the United States over time to levels unseen in almost 100 years.

The White House plan was unveiled last week in order to kick off negotiations with Democrats to find a legislative solution to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

According to The Washington Free Beacon, the president’s plan would allow a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million DACA beneficiaries who came to the U.S. illegally as children.

In return, Trump wants a $25 billion trust fund for border security, which would fully pay for the border wall. He also wants an end to chain migration and the immigration diversity lottery system, and for other immigration loopholes to be closed to ensure our borders are secure.

According to analysis released Monday by the Cato Institute’s David Bier and Stuart Anderson, Trump’s proposal would be the “largest policy-driven legal immigration cut since the 1920s.”

Bier and Anderson’s report found that if Trump’s immigration were signed into law, it would dramatically slash the number of legal immigrants in the U.S. from more than 1.1 million to approximately 600,000.

That is a reduction of 490,000 people the U.S. accepts annually, which would be a giant 44 percent decrease in immigration levels.

With Trump’s plan virtually eliminating chain migration and ending the diversity visa lottery, the report said an estimated 22 million who would otherwise immigrate to the U.S. would be denied entry into the U.S. over the next 10 to 50 years.

Bier and Anderson’s report was challenged by Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies. As a group that supports limiting immigration to the U.S., Vaughan argued Trump’s plan would be great for the U.S., securing our borders, and ensuring we contain the influx of immigrants — both legal and illegal — pouring into our country at an uncontrollable rate.

“Even if their analysis were correct, I would disagree that such steep immigration reductions would be bad for the country,” Vaughan told the Free Beacon.

“On the contrary, it would likely boost prosperity and well-being of Americans and other residents by slowing down the inflow of less-educated and less-skilled workers; reducing future demands on schools, hospitals, and public assistance; and moderating population growth, which has caused crowding and strained our natural resources,” she continued.

The CIS found eliminating chain migration would slash immigration by about 18 percent in the short-term, and roughly 33 percent after ten years.

According to a Harvard-Harris poll released in late January, 61 percent said the U.S. has inadequate border security.

The same poll found that 81 percent of Americans said the U.S. should take in fewer than the 1.3 million immigrants it currently admits each year. Seventy-nine percent also said America’s immigration agendas should be based on an immigrants’ ability to contribute to the U.S. and have skills.

An overwhelming majority of Americans agree with Trump that we need more enhanced border security measures, fewer immigrants should be accepted annually, and that American security should be prioritized over the needs of illegals.

Trump’s immigration plan not only tackles all of that, but it would also result in the largest cut in legal immigration since the 1920s.

Many Americans support Trump’s bold immigration plan that secures our borders and dramatically tames immigration into our country, and that’s something to get excited about.

Trump Comes Forward With Official Statement on Dems Who Refused to Applaud SOTU

During remarks made Thursday at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump excoriated Democrats for the way they had behaved during his State of the Union address two nights earlier.

He was particularly bothered by the way they had responded when he announced that black and Hispanic unemployment levels have hit record lows.

“African-American and Hispanic unemployment have both reached the lowest levels ever recorded. That’s something very, very special. And when I made that statement the other night, there was zero movement from the Democrats,” he rightly pointed out.”

“They sat there stone cold, no smile, no applause,” he continued. “You would have thought that on that one they would have sort of at least clapped a little bit.”

Instead, the majority of Democrats remained seated, either staring forward like zombies or rudely inspecting their phones like distracted children at a dinner table.

“Which tells you perhaps they would rather see us not do well than see our country do great. And that’s not good, that’s not good. We need to change that,” the president added.

Can we “change that,” though? From many Americans’ vantage point, it seems clear that the Democrat Party is now “motivated more by hatred of Donald Trump than the best interests of the American people,” as noted by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire.

Even Dana Milbank, a leftist columnist for The Washington Post, seemed to recognize this, arguing Wednesday that “the only message the Democratic leaders managed to convey” during the SOTU address “was that they really do not like Trump, for any number of reasons.”

Watch the Democrats’ behavior below:

But my question is this: Do we even want “to change that?”

Writing for RedState, Brandon Morse pointed out that the “utter contempt” displayed by the Democrats could come back to bite them in the rear come the 2018 midterm elections and even the 2020 presidential election.

The American people “saw Democrats frowning as Trump talked about our rising wages, and lower taxes,” he wrote. “They noticed Democrats shaking their heads as Trump talked about getting tough on violent gangs, and defeating terrorists. They saw Democrats stone-faced as the minorities that the left said were being kept down were now getting a better life.”

“Last night Democrats showed their true aims in Washington, and I bet many Americans noticed. I can’t wait to see what they noticed at the polls,” he added.

Good point. While the Democrats’ hatred isn’t inherently good for America, the potential repercussions — more Republicans being elected into office — would be quite advantageous, as they’d make it even easier for the president to continue on his mission to “Make America Great Again.”

And that would be great for all.

Trey Gowdy Exposes Why Adam Schiff Is So Terrified Of The FISA Memo Being Released

House Intelligence Committee’s ranking Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff put out a statement about how horrible it would be for the country to release the FISA memo. However, Trey Gowdy exposed the real reason Schiff doesn’t want the memo released.

“I said to my committee colleagues during this hearing, sadly, we can fully expect that the president of the United States will not put the national interest over his own personal interest. But, it is a sad day, indeed, when that is also true of our own committee. Because today, this committee voted to put the president’s personal interest, perhaps their own political interest, above the national interest, in denying themselves even the ability to hear from the department and the FBI,” said Schiff.

Now here’s Gowdy’s take on it. “Look, my Democratic colleagues didn’t want us to find this information. They did everything they could to keep us from finding this information,” said Gowdy.

“I think it will be embarrassing to Adam Schiff once people realize the extent to which he went to keep them from learning any of this. That would be the embarrassment. I mean, going to court to help Fusion GPS so we can’t find out they paid for the dossier, and that they were working for the DNC,” said Gowdy.

“That’s a pretty big step to go to court to try to keep the American people from learning something. So, if it were up to Adam Schiff, you wouldn’t know about Hillary Clinton’s email. You wouldn’t know about the server. You wouldn’t know about the dossier. I do find it ironic that he has his own memo right now because if it were up to him, we wouldn’t know any of it,” said Gowdy.

Trump Gets the Best News of His Presidency, and Dems are So Panicked They’re Pretending It Didn’t Happen

Trump’s biggest victory at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland is being utterly ignored by the mainstream media.

Trump’s all business, and he was definitely about the task of making America great again at last week’s event.

Now, the media couldn’t help but cover Trump’s more public appearances. But what many outlets are failing to report is that he also had a series of meetings with the CEOs of Europe’s top corporations.

And at one of those dinner meetings, something extraordinary happened.

From The Daily Caller:

In a stunning moment, one by one, European titans of industry from companies like Adidas, Siemens and Bayer went around the table to thank Trump for the passage of tax cuts and the easing of corporate tax burdens. Almost every CEO had a new US-based investment or strategic business to announce.

Liberals might initially dismiss this as Trump just helping out more of his rich friends.

Not so.

As the president of Seimens, Joe Kaeser, said at that dinner, “since you have been so successful in tax reform we have decided to develop the next generation gas turbines in the United States.”

Trump’s tax cuts weren’t about putting money in the pockets of corporate giants. That’s just a means to an end. His goal was creating American jobs.

And that’s precisely what happened.

Seimens and many others will soon be bringing a lot more business, and a lot more jobs, to our shores. All thanks to President Trump.
