Trump Plans to Halve Legal Immigration

Donald Trump’s administration is developing plans to significantly cut legal immigration into the United States, fulfilling one of his major campaign promises, a report from Politico has revealed.

According to the report, Trump plans to support a bill prepared by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) later this summer that proposes a 50 percent cut in legal immigration until 2027 to help raise Americans’ productivity.

“Senator Cotton knows that being more deliberate about who we let into our country will raise working-class wages, which is why an overwhelming majority of Americans support it,”  Caroline Rabbitt, a spokeswoman for Cotton, told the outlet. “He and Senator Perdue are working with President Trump to fix our immigration system so that instead of undercutting American workers, it will support them and their livelihoods.”

The senators have also been working closely with White House aide Stephen Miller, known for his firm pro-American stance on immigration. While working as a staff member for Attorney General Jeff Sessions when he was Senator for Alabama, Miller was credited with helping to defeat a bipartisan 2013 immigration-expansion plan dubbed the “Gang of Eight” bill.

      This is about legal Immigrants, not illegal ones like Obama. It needs to return to where all must be capable of providing for themselves and not depending on the American taxpayer.

  • Wcgraybill

    come election time also get rid of all democrats in DC.

  • Ischgabibble

    We have enough legal and way too many illegals from all nations eating up our benefits such as social security, welfare, subsidized housing, disability, medicare and medicaid, and God knows what else. These programs are going broke at an ever increasing rate and it has to stop. One way to curtail illegal use of these citizen benefits is to deport the illegals and pass a bill that forbids illegals from reaping what they have not sewn and to ensure no more come with that intention in mind revoke the 14th Amendment that gives citizenship to the babies of illegals born here. I cannot understand why President Trump has not taken action on this issue. It needs to be addressed now before it is too late.

    • 1937shirley

      Trump has tried and is still trying but the lousy liberal judges in the federal courts and the lib politicians are continuing to gum up the works.

      • satelliter

        It’s their job. They have their instructions, forget news and world events, concentrate only on anything that will keep Trump busy (like Russia) so he doesn’t have time for his real agenda. It’s just part of the plan.

    It is a start

  • Gerry Costa

    First off — we need to ban any kind of immigration from the middle east. There is no room in this country for muslims or their BS sharia law crap. They need to stay in the sh*t hole they created for themselves. Then build the wall between the U.S. and mexihole and then cut immigration in half.

    • ward

      Illegal foreigners, muslims, hilary & bo are the #1 enemies against the U.S. that has to be eliminated ASAP or sooner … !

  • Pete

    Sad…..our liberals have caused the influx of illeegals into our coyntry to diminish the opportuniyies for American wirkers… a reseult, the administrstion has to cut LEGAL immigration (the backbone of America), to keep our workforce managable. In effect we’re allowing the future Democratic voters to take thethe jobs of Americans and future hard working Americans, so that Democrats can continue to contfol the government, at taxoayer exoebse. Good plan, unless Trump can work out a way to cut illegals fromtzking over our job force! Thanm you Traitor Obama, you heretic POS!

        It may eventually fall upon the real Americans to solve the problem.

  • Septemberswhisper

    Sounds like what we elected Trump to do. Lets do this!

  • Disgusted with the GOP

    Hillary Clinton belongs in jail! SHE IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW!!!!! The left refused to allow their criminal leader get charged with all of her crimes!!!! SHE IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW! EVERY ONE that voted for TRUMP needs to go to the DOJ site and demand that she get an actual investigation! Comey needs to be charged with leaking. Obama had the most corrupt administration in the history of our nation. You saw how many counties voted for our President Trump. You see the swamp fighting him at every corner. If the d–n RINOs don’t get this right, they are the swamp as well as any other liberal criminal in DC. WE must stand together at all costs to make those that want to tear our great nation apart accountable for their crimes. Obama should be in jail, but we all know that will never happen. I am so disgusted with the temper tantrum biased media I would not trust a single thing they print or cover on TV! THE spineless GOP needs to stand up for our president and the American citizens or we need to throw every single coward out!
