It’s no secret that President Trump’s efforts to tighten both legal and illegal immigration limits is overwhelmingly popular with Americans… hard working, taxpaying, voting Americans.
Therein lies the problem. Multinational corporations and the international bankers that fund their growth spent generations leading those American workers to figurative slaughter.
The paper of record for those ‘globalist politicians immigration policies have worked along with free trade advocacy to deeply divide Americans on the issue of immigration while corporate America enjoyed the benefits… massive profits and burgeoning stock values.
New York Times reporters say immigration boosts Americans' wages.
We're now waiting for NYT's reports on the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and the chupacabra.
Seriously, why do so few reporters recognize the role of supply & demand in wages?https://t.co/re4sQOQRrd

Those policies have shifted enormous sums of wealth from middle-class employees and the heartland states towards the stock market, major coastal cities, and foreign countries and investors.
George H.W. Bush, the younger Bush’s father, signed a 1990 bill that nearly doubled immigration. Since then the government’s massive inflow of immigrants has kept Americans wages almost flat (until 2018). That has supercharged the U.S. stock market.
Immigrants of all kinds, but especially visa workers have forced more highly compensated Americans out of careers and technological research.
Beyond that they further arm the divisive identity politics of Democrats by expanding cultural diversity beyond what is compatible with established American norms.
Add to that fact that not all immigrants take our national security laws as seriously as we’d like.
Donald Trump painted no false illusions for voters during his campaign.
“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt establishment with a new government, controlled by you, the American people.
“The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exists for only one reason, to protect and enrich itself.
“The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election for those who control the levers of power in Washington.
“And for the global special interests they partner with, these people that don’t have your good in mind, our campaign represents a true existential threat…
“…The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry.”
There’s no arguing that Trump was elected in 2016 to help reverse the establishment’s – Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama – immigration policy.
Since Trump’s election, he has sharply curtailed illegal migration, driving wages up for blue-collars in 2018 and 2019… just like Trump said it would.
President Trump also trimmed legal immigration, and his April 22 policy sets the stage for incremental, significant reductions in the visa worker programs, such as the little-known B-1 and OPT visa programs.
It might also be noted that in the 31 years since H.W. Bush first took office, our national debt has increased from $2.8 Trillion to more than $23 Trillion today.
While numbers are difficult to come by, a 2011 U.S. Senate Budget Committee report found that “the total amount spent on these 80-plus federal welfare programs amounts to roughly $1.03 Trillion.” That’s the single largest annual budget item… by far.
Alone, that likely accounts for the lion’s share of our accumulated debt.
Whether those welfare recipients are immigrants or native born Americans matters little. Every job that could have been held by an American worker but isn’t, increases the burden on our welfare programs.
Adding to taxpayers’ expense is the burden on states and municipalities to provide classrooms, police, fire protection, and a host of other services.
Public opinion has shifted strongly against mass migration, so a bipartisan front of #AllofUScare billionaires is using Christian & patriotic themes to help preserve their supply of wage-cutting workers & rent-raising consumers. https://t.co/dHO5CSD7IK

If it’s unity they want, then uniting behind what’s best for American citizens, will accomplish that.
