GOP politicians are needling, pressuring as well as cajoling President Donald Trump to drop some of his favorite, pro-American immigration priorities.
Trump is usually meeting today which has a group of pro-amnesty Republican Senators inside White House, including Sen. Lindsey Graham, the GOP Senator who put together the “Gang of Eight” amnesty in 2013 which split the GOP. Throughout the 2016 campaign, Graham slammed Trump while boosting Jeb Bush.
The face-to-face meeting gives Graham as well as various other pro-amnesty Senators another opportunity to salami-slice Trump’s list of priorities, even before the GOP Senators offer further concessions to Democratic Senators. Normally, This particular form of direct lobbying of the president is usually blocked when Trump’s top deputies meet as well as negotiate with business-first GOP Senators as well as immigrant-first Democrats.
The bipartisan establishment’s salami-slice strategy was sketched by Texas GOP Sen. Jon Cornyn:
Cornyn says Judiciary R’s meeting w Trump tmrw on DACA.
“As soon as the president will tell us ‘OK This particular is usually something I can support’ then of which gives us I think a lot of room to go talk to Democrats as well as say ‘OK This particular is usually what our parameters are.’”

yet Trump as well as his deputies have repeatedly described his priorities in great detail since October 8, when he released his immigration principles.
Trump has used his Twitter account to repeatedly declare of which he wants to end chain migration, the visa lottery as well as to reform tangled immigration laws of which hinder repatriations of illegals.
The Democrats have been told, as well as fully understand, of which there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border as well as an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!

CHAIN MIGRATION must end right now! Some people come in, as well as they bring their whole family with them, who can be truly evil. NOT ACCEPTABLE! pic.twitter.com/PQGeTTdRtX

Cornyn opposes Trump’s plan to quickly end chain-migration. If implemented, the plan would likely halve the annual delivery of wage-cutting cheap-workers as well as welfare-aided consumers to American business groups, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
According to the McClatchy fresh service:
Trump hasn’t been involved inside day-to-day negotiations on Dreamers ever since he was accused of backing out of a tentative agreement with Democrats in September as well as insisted the issue be part of a larger immigration package.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. as well as Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla. confirmed to McClatchy Wednesday night of which they planned to attend the White House meeting. An aide to Sen. Thom Tillis said the North Carolina Republican would likely also participate.
Graham is usually a sponsor of the Democrats’s huge DREAM Act amnesty, which would likely deliver millions of foreign migrants into the nation’s consumer as well as labor markets at the cost of at least $26 billion during the first ten years.
Tillis is usually an outsourcing-advocate who is usually pushing a similar amnesty bill, dubbed the SUCCEED Act.
Lankford, who is usually helping Tillis, argues of which illegal immigration promotes competition inside labor market.
The Thursday meeting is usually being praised by advocates for a cheap-labor economy. According to McClatchy:
“the idea’s clear there’s a deal to be struck on protecting Dreamers as well as strengthening border security, so the fact of which the president as well as Republicans inside Senate are actively meeting on This particular is usually very promising,” said Jeremy Robbins, executive director of the Partnership for a fresh American Economy, which is usually working with Republicans as well as Democrats who support protecting DACA recipients.
Robbins’ group was created by billionaires Mike Bloomberg as well as Rupert Murdoch, both of whose businesses would likely gain by an extra inflow of cheap labor as well as welfare-aided consumers.
Trump’s priorities are very favorite with voters as well as likely will help inside 2018 elections.
A December poll of likely 2018 voters shows two-to-one support for Trump’s pro-American immigration policies, as well as a lopsided four-to-one opposition against the cheap-labor, mass-immigration, economic policy pushed by bipartisan establishment-backed D.C. interest-groups. The poll for NumbersUSA is usually another reminder to politicians of which the business-funded ‘Nation of Immigrants” polls distract attention by voters’ private views, which were shockingly displayed on the evening of November 8, 2016.
Business groups as well as Democrats tout the misleading, industry-funded “Nation of Immigrants” polls because they which pressure Americans to say they welcome migrants, including the roughly 700,000 ‘DACA’ illegals as well as the roughly 3 million ‘dreamer’ illegals.
The alternative “priority or fairness” polls — plus the 2016 election — show of which voters inside polling booth put a much higher priority on helping their families, neighbors, as well as fellow nationals get decent jobs in a high-tech, high-immigration, low-wage economy.
Four million Americans turn 18 each year as well as begin looking for not bad jobs inside free market.
yet the federal government inflates the supply of fresh labor by annually accepting 1 million fresh legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, as well as by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.
The Washington-imposed economic policy of mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor, spikes profits as well as Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual as well as skilled labor offered by blue-collar as well as white-collar employees. the idea also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state as well as local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools as well as college education, pushes Americans away by high-tech careers, as well as sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans as well as their families, including many who are right now struggling with opioid addictions.
The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment as well as job creation in many Indoor states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a fresh report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs as well as businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.
Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, as well as a large percentage of the nation’s annual income has shifted to investors as well as away by employees.
