Trump Immigration Policies Win With Likely Voters

Today, President Donald Trump will meet with six Senate Republicans to discuss immigration at the White House. In advance of this meeting, Neil Munro from published an interesting article.

Turns out that a majority of likely voters agree with Donald Trump on immigration. From the article:

A poll of likely 2018 voters shows two-to-one support for President Donald Trump’s pro-American immigration policies, and a lopsided four-to-one opposition against the cheap-labor, mass-immigration, economic policy pushed by bipartisan establishment-backed D.C. interest-groups.

Well, color me shocked. You wouldn’t know this by listening to just about anybody with a microphone or laptop.

Immigration has not always been U.S. policy.

In a Voice of America post, Kelly Jean Kelly reports that the United States of America has restricted the numbers and types of immigrants:

During those years, Irish and German immigrants came to the U.S. in large numbers. Many Chinese immigrants did, too. In the 1860s, they came to work as laborers on the continental railroad and stayed.

Members of the American public disapproved of these groups. They did not like the Catholic religion that many Irish and German immigrants practiced. And they did not like Asian immigrants, whom they viewed as convicts, prostitutes, or competition for jobs.

So, in the late 1800s, Congress moved for the first time to limit the number of immigrants. Lawmakers targeted Asians, especially Chinese. The Page Act and the Chinese Exclusion Act banned most Chinese women and workers.

Immigration is an important topic. A nation without borders is not a nation. But, what type of immigrants and how they assimilate is also important.

The issues are:

1. DACA or Dreamers – DACA is Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals aka Dreamers. What Orwellian names, right? One time grant of immunity after extreme vetting would be my solution. Not all of the “dreamers” are dreaming the American dream. True dat. Democrats and activists will howl. Too bad.

2. Birthright Citizenship – Ma and Pa fly to the U.S.A. and pop out a baby. Baby is a citizen of the United States of America. Oh. Hale. No. No more. End this now.

3. Chain Migration – Chain Migration is gonna kill the United States. Your second cousin thrice removed immigrates to the United States. She brings in your fourth cousin by marriage. Your fourth cousin by marriage brings in all her siblings, their spouses and their sibilings. No. End this now.

4. Diversity Lottery Immigration – Bean counter immigration. We will be a better country if we have people of every color, race, creed and nation of origin. Well. No. Do they believe in The Constitution? That’s all the diversity we really need. We should only allow immigrants to come in to this country if they will not be a drain on the system and can contribute. If they break the laws or suck on the system, deport them. After due process, naturally.

5. Build the Wall – Pew Research shows that more non-Mexicans than Mexicans were apprehended at the Southern Border. In some places, a physical wall will be necessary. In some places, a virtual wall or natural barriers will work. Maybe rather than “build the wall”, we should just say, “Secure the Border.”

Here is a heart wrenching video from Buzzfeed, regarding the DACA’s:

Yes, it’s propaganda bull bleep. I am sorry for young people who have been lied to and manipulated by their families, but life is not fair. We have the numbers to stand behind President Trump for sensible immigration fixes.

It’s time for full immigration reform and border security. Every border and every port.

    Well said Toni! and I might add that I agree that we shouldn’t be breaking up families because of legal status.. as you point out, do away with anchor baby status, and deport the whole damn family! At least one parent should be a citizen, for the child to be granted citizenship…

    Many years ago a court case worked its way though the system and ended up in front of the Supreme Court. Two aliens had a child and they argued that it should be granted citizenship. The Supremes decided that the 14th Amendment’s citizenship clause – “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” meant that their child was a citizen. That’s where “birthright citizenship” came from.

    HOWEVER – both the parents were resident aliens, legally residing in the United States from conception on. I wonder what would happen if a case was brought to the Supreme Court where one or both parents was an illegal alien? For example, would the Supremes entertain a claim that someone who entered illegally and avoided law enforcement to stay in the U.S. had avoided being “subject to the jurisdiction thereof”?
