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.

With Just 5 Brilliant Words, Trump Changed the Rules of the Game

There were a lot of pretty amazing moments during President Trump’s first State of the Union address.

But amidst all the incredible stories of heroism and the powerful new policies announced, there was one moment that really stood out.

About midway into his speech, Trump started talking about illegal immigration and the tremendous harm it does to this country.

And then, he uttered one line that absolutely brought down the house:

“My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American dream. Because Americans are Dreamers too.

 

While there were plenty of standing ovations during the course of the night, none were nearly as boisterous as the one Trump received after that remark.

With just five little words, Trump effectively reframed the debate over illegal immigration, and that has got to have Democrats worried.

These Are The 15 Guests Donald Trump Is Bringing with Him to The State of the Union

President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump are pleased to announce that the following individuals will be their special guests, seated with the First Lady, at the President’s first State of the Union address:

Corey Adams: Corey Adams is a skilled welder at Staub Manufacturing Solutions in Dayton, Ohio, where he has worked for more than eight years. During 2017, Corey and his wife were able to become first-time homeowners, and they will invest their extra money from tax reform into their two daughters’ education savings.

Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas: Elizabeth Alvarado and Robert Mickens are the parents of Nisa Mickens.

Evelyn Rodriguez and Freddy Cuevas are the parents of Kayla Cuevas. Nisa and Kayla had been close friends since elementary school, but in September 2016, the two girls were chased down and brutally murdered. Their deaths were among a string of 17 Long Island slayings that have been attributed to Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13.

Corporal (Ret.) Matthew Bradford: Matthew Bradford joined the United States Marine Corps straight out of high school and deployed to Iraq in 2006.

In 2007, he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED). Shrapnel shot into both of his eyes, blinding him, and the explosion also took both of his legs. After multiple surgeries and therapy, Matthew reenlisted in the Marine Corps — the first blind, double amputee to do so.

Jon Bridgers: Jon Bridgers founded the Cajun Navy 2016, as a non-profit rescue and recovery organization to respond to flooding in south Louisiana.

In 2017, the Cajun Navy set out to provide aid to those in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey. He and the Cajun Navy 2016 have helped thousands of people across the South, and to this day, they are helping collect resources and donations for those who lost their homes in the storms.

David Dahlberg: David Dahlberg works as a fire prevention technician in southern California, stationed at the Pine Canyon Fire Station in the Santa Lucia Ranger District. In July 2017, he saved 62 children and staff members from a raging wildfire that had encircled their camp.

Officer Ryan Holets: Ryan Holets serves as a police officer in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In his six years on the force, he has been shot at twice and experienced several near-death encounters. Officer Holets and his wife adopted a baby from parents who suffered from opioid addiction, breaking down walls between drug addicts and police officers to help save lives.

Ashlee Leppert: Ashlee Leppert has dedicated her life to her country, serving as an aviation electronics technician in the United States Coast Guard.

Last year, she rescued dozens of Americans imperiled during the devastating hurricane season. Nothing has left more of a mark on Ashlee than her efforts to lift a woman to safety in a helicopter basket. The woman was clutching a few bags of what Ashlee thought were clothes. As she drew the woman near, however, Ashlee saw four sets of children’s eyes looking at her as their guardian angel.

Agent Celestino “CJ” Martinez: CJ Martinez is a Supervisory Special Agent for the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations unit.

He has spent much of his 15-year tenure working to dismantle transnational criminal organizations, including MS-13. His investigations have led to more than 100 arrests of MS-13 gang members who have been prosecuted for crimes, including homicide, assault, and narcotics and weapons trafficking. CJ is a proud veteran, having honorably served our Nation in the United States Air Force and Air National Guard for more than 22 years.

Staff Sergeant Justin Peck: Staff Sergeant Justin Peck has served in the United States Army for eight years.

In November 2017, he was part of a team, along with Chief Petty Officer Kenton Stacy, that was conducting a multi-day mission with partner forces in Raqqa, Syria, to clear IEDs from territory previously controlled by ISIS. After the team had located and disarmed seven IEDs, Chief Petty Officer Stacy was clearing the second floor of a hospital building when he was struck by an IED blast and severely wounded. Without hesitation, Staff Sergeant Peck, who was holding a position outside the building, rushed to Stacy’s location on the uncleared, IED-ridden second floor. Staff Sergeant Peck’s actions—including applying a tourniquet, placing an endotracheal tube, and performing artificial respirations and CPR — were directly responsible for saving Chief Petty Officer Stacy’s life.

Preston Sharp: Preston Sharp was visiting his veteran grandfather’s grave in 2015, when he noticed that other local veterans’ graves were not being honored with American flags or flowers. Today, Preston has organized the placement of more than 40,000 American flags and red carnations on soldiers’ graves, as part of his goal to honor veterans in all 50 States and to challenge others to join the Flag and Flower Challenge (#FandFChallenge).

Steve Staub and Sandy Keplinger: Siblings Steve Staub and Sandy Keplinger started Staub Manufacturing Solutions, a contract manufacturing company specializing in metal fabrication, twenty years ago.

Today, they serve as president and vice president, respectively. Thanks to the “Trump bump” in their business, Staub Manufacturing Solutions has seen an uptick in sales, employment, and optimism. They have grown their team from 23 to 37 employees over the last year and recently expanded by acquiring a new building. Following enactment of the tax cuts and reform legislation last year, they were able to give all their employees larger than expected Christmas bonuses.

Trump’s Making America So Great, Even Public Radio Is Admitting It

Democrats have insisted that President Donald Trump’s tax plan would only benefit the wealthy, going as far as to call the plan “pathetic” for what it does for working people.

Southern California public radio station KPCC was among those who made such claims, reporting that the new law would give big cuts to corporations and wealthy Americans and only modest reductions to other Americans.

The station echoed liberal talking points when it claimed the bill would leave lower-income families in the lurch.

As usual, these claims are absurd, and KPCC had to make that embarrassing admission while attempting to prove how bad Trump’s tax reform bill would be for those with lower incomes.

The station enlisted the help of H&R Block tax preparer Aaron Martinez to calculate the taxes for a group of Californians at different income levels that ranged from low-income grad students to highly paid professionals.

Based on 2016 tax returns, Martinez found that the impact of Trump’s tax reform resulted in savings for a wide spectrum of incomes, including those who are considered to be low income.

For example, graduate student Christine Vega, who earned $23,446 last year, would receive a refund increase of $400.

Middle-income earners Megan and Marlee Malone-Franklin, who made $69,192 last year, would receive a tax cut of $1,497.

KPCC reported that Martinez said the cases showed that “most people will see a reduction in their tax. But not everyone.”

However, the station failed to present anyone who would not benefit from the tax bill.

KPCC went on to report that Martinez said that claims that the bill was skewed toward the rich depended on where people were rich.

“The new rules don’t always give much back to highly paid workers in a state like California. They pay higher state income taxes than residents in other states, and now their ability to deduct those taxes will be capped,” the station reported.

“The impact to residents of California is going to be different than a state like Texas or North Carolina or Florida,” Martinez said.

“They’re going to get more of a benefit out of it than what we will get,” he added.

So, those who do not live in California can expect to see even better numbers.

It must pain liberals to admit that the president’s tax plan is going to benefit low- and middle-income families after all the scaremongering that took place before the bill was passed.

Once again, we have proof that liberals simply cannot be trusted.

Trey Gowdy Just Exposed What’s In Those Explosive FBI Files

America is clamoring to know what’s in that explosive FISA secret memo from the FBI.

And President Trump wants to give it to us, but he’s facing a lot of opposition from swamp-dwellers whose careers will suffer as a result of finally having to tell us the truth.

Well, as usual, its Rep. Trey Gowdy to the rescue.

While Gowdy is still trying to force full disclosure of the FISA memo and the damning revelations it makes.

In the meantime, he’s provided us with some tidbits, and they’re already enough to call for a full investigation against former and current FBI officials.

Of note among Gowdy’s remarks:

“We need to know a couple of things. Number one we need to know how the worlds premier law enforcement agency managed to lose five months worth of texts. And what is also troubling in the text we do have they’re discussing how to avoid texts being captured and secured. So what is missing is important but also what is there is important.”

“It is manifest bias not just against Trump, but against his kids, against his business interests. There is a text where they hope the Trump Hotel fails. That is a level of bias that you rarely see and you never see from law enforcement officers.”

Trump Just Did Something No President in History Ever Did – Media Refuses to Cover…

 

Not to knock the Trump achievement that will be detailed below, but when someone brave enough to ignore the cartel of egg head Leftists that rules the Land of Economic Theory, making history can come easy.

The American Thinker reports that it took less than a year for President Trump to close the gap between the percentage of White and Black unemployment. He did so, by the way, by adopting policies which dropped the Black unemployment rate to 6.8 percent, the lowest in recorded American history!

The Thinker writes, “For a purported white supremacist, President Trump is improving the lives of African Americans far more than President Obama did.”

That is the truth. Obama gave out dumb phones through a program riddled with fraud and waste, reports the Washington Times.

The Associated Press reports that “[m]ost economists expect the Trump administration’s tax cuts to help speed the economy’s already decent pace of growth. Some envision the unemployment rate dropping as low as 3.5 percent by the end of 2018. A rate that low would mark the lowest such level in nearly a half-century, and it would likely force businesses to accelerate pay raises to attract and retain employees. Pay raises have remained puzzlingly sluggish for many U.S. workers despite the robust job market.

As the Thinker replies, this means that those demographic groups suffering the most from unemployment, like Blacks, will see employment improve and make more history.

The Thinker warns, “Let the media continue to ignore this reality, as they are certain to do in their efforts to avoid helping Trump.  People know very well when they, or their friends and families, get new jobs or better pay in their existing jobs.  President Trump can and will point out these huge benefits that the black community is experiencing.”

Amen to that! And all the best to ALL Americans!

President Trump and Mattis Just Uncovered Trillions of Missing Dollars from Budget!

Another historic milestone is going unnoticed by the Propaganda Machine that is the media. For the first time in Pentagon’s seventy-four years, the monolithic military headquarters will be undergoing an audit that, if history is any indication, will find trillions of dollars missing.

Another article by Zero Hedge reports that “America’s world-wide military presence is such that the Pentagon itself can’t track how many US service members are deployed where. A new bombshell article in Stars and Stripes military newspaper is non-ironically headlined, ‘Report: 44,000 ‘unknown’ military personnel stationed around the world’.”

President Trump, an exceptionally skilled business leader and organizer, has authorized 2,400 auditors from independent public accounting firms to audit the Army, Navy, Air Force, a practice that is now going to occur annually and be headed up by Pentagon comptroller David Norquist.

A former official at the Department of Homeland Security, Norquist assisted in handling that agencies audit last year and sees such financial oversight as “a matter of driving change inside a bureaucracy that may resist it.”

AND RESIST, THE PENTAGON HAS. EVER SINCE THE 1980S, WHEN REVELATIONS OF MASSIVE OVER-SPENDING WERE REVEALED, THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HAS USED POLITICAL INFLUENCE AND CONVENIENT OPPORTUNITIES TO PUT OFF AUDITS.

The 2001 Rumsfeld revelation, Zero Hedge reports. was quickly forgotten when, the next day, the horrors of September 11th befell the nation.

In “2015, the Pentagon denied trying to shelve a study detailing $125 billion in waste created by a bloated employee counts for noncombat related work such as human resources, finance, health care management and property management.”

A year later, DoD analyst Franklin C. Spinney testified before Congress that the DOD had created an accounting mess with un-auditable books and budget projections which did not real world expectations.

If it is revealed that the Pentagon has either negligently or purposefully ‘lost’ track of trillions of dollars while our fighter jets are falling out of the skies and our brave men and women on the front lines of combat go without pay, the entire structure needs to be reformed from the ground up and heads need to roll.
