This is a very good thing. President Trump announced in his weekly address yesterday, that migrants who come to this country are not allowed to apply for welfare for the first five years they are here. This is exactly the right thing to do and I commend the President for doing this. This wasn’t the only change to immigration the President announced. It is getting a total overhaul and it long past time for it.
The President is looking to create a merit-based point system for immigrants. You have to have a skill we want and need. It’s based on the Canadian and Australian systems of immigration. The bill would likewise put a stop to chain migration and it would ensure Americans get first crack at jobs, not foreigners and illegal immigrants. It would also end the shadowy system of using near slave labor in businesses here in the US. An added bonus is it would also slow crime and gang activity. I hope it passes… it failed in February, but this bill needs to become law.
From The Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump announced in his weekly radio address Friday that migrants who enter the United States cannot receive welfare in the first five years after their arrival.
“Just this week, we announced a historic immigration bill to create a merit-based Green Card system that ends the abuse of our welfare system, stops chain migration, and protects our workers and our economy,” Trump stated. “As an example, you cannot get welfare for five years when you come into our country. You cannot just come in like in past weeks, years, and decades, you come in immediately and start picking up welfare. For five years, you have to say you will not be asking or using our welfare systems.”
The plan put forth by the administration follows that of the systems deployed by Australia and Canada, where potential immigrants are granted points based on a wide range of divisions. Those with the highest points would qualify for the 140,000 visas that would be distributed every year.
If migrants cannot receive free bennies for five years when they arrive here, many will not come. Others who are already here will self-deport. This is a commonsense move that should have been in place long ago. It would have stopped a lot of these problems already. Trump is looking to only dispense 140,000 visas a year. Those with the highest points (most qualifications) will get visas. The others will be turned away. This is sane border and immigration policy.
A candidate who wants to apply for a visa must have at least 30 points to start the process. Other points are distributed based on education, English proficiency, a job offer, an extraordinary achievement, an Olympic medal winner or competitive international athlete. Sounds good to me.
Also, by implementing the welfare restriction, if a migrant still comes here, it is incentive to actually find work and hold down a job. Necessity is the mother of invention and production is the basis of morale. All of this puts the best interests of America first and is sure to tick off the leftist Marxists. Too freaking bad. Make this bill a law so the left cannot undo it and so some of this immigration madness stops.
