President Donald Trump supports a bill that will cut legal immigration in half and return to a merit-based system of immigration. Instead of huddled masses of welfare recipients and jihadists and drug cartels from the wretched refuse of teeming shores, we will get more immigrants who want to come here to work and live free.
Within hours, amnesty McCain said, “I wouldn’t do it”. McCain is promoting another amnesty bill as soon as they all get back from their one-month vacation after accomplishing absolutely nothing this year.
McCain was joined by so-called Republican Lindsey Graham who said they really need cheap labor in South Carolina. He didn’t put it exactly that way, but it is what he means.
“Unfortunately,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, in a statement about RAISE, “[one] part of this proposal would reduce legal immigration by half, including many immigrants who work legally in our agriculture, tourism and service industry. South Carolina’s number one industry is agriculture and tourism is number two. If this proposal were to become law, it would be devastating to our state’s economy, which relies on this immigrant workforce.”
Graham knows the workers in farming are here illegally. He is supporting illegal alien labor, yet he pretends he’s talking about legal immigrants. Graham is clearly lying.
“South Carolina’s number one industry is agriculture and tourism is number two. If this proposal were to become law, it would be devastating to our state’s economy which relies on this immigrant workforce,” Graham said in the media release.
In July, Graham called for granting citizenship to 1.5 million illegal immigrants who were brought into the United States illegally as children. He also called for increasing importation of foreign workers.
Forget what is right for the United States. It doesn’t matter.
Ron Johnson also rejected the proposal. The farmers won’t vote for him and that is what it is all about – their re-election.
In May, Johnson proposed allowing states to import 500,000 foreign workers to replace Americans who were out of the labor market. The legislation did not consider helping American citizens re-enter the labor market who were out of the workforce for a variety of reasons including drug addiction.
Johnson has turned into quite a RINO. In January, he told a CNBC audience: “Let’s start working with Democrats. Let’s transition to a system that will actually work, that, you know, Democrats are talking about. They want to fix it. Well, let’s fix it for the benefit of the American public.”
Sounding like an elitist, he added, “From my standpoint, I’ve been talking about repairing the damage and then transitioning to a system that actually works. That takes some time. It’s way more complex than simply repeal and replace. That’s a fun little buzzword, but it’s just not accurate.”
In other words, Trump and stupid Trump supporters need these superior beings to work it out for them. After all, the elite have done so well so far.
These people aren’t in Congress for Americans or even citizens. They are there to get re-elected.
The bill’s co-sponsor Sen. Tom Cotton said legal immigration should raise the country’s standard of living. The other co-sponsor Sen. David Perdue said, “Our current system does not work. It keeps America from being competitive.”
That is simply common sense.
McCain is obviously bulletproof and so are Graham and Johnson. Graham is up for re-election in 2020 and Johnson in 2022.
The Senate will not let this bill pass. With a 52-seat majority, there simply aren’t enough Republicans to pass it.
The Senate won’t approve any of Trump’s agenda. It’s not so much that they hate Trump as they hate the agenda and use Trump hate as their shield. The liberal Republicans aren’t even RINOs, they’re Democrats and Democrats are Socialists.
