Donald Trump is ripping some serious liberal rear-end. The New York City terrorist who killed at least eight people used current immigration law to create a chain of immigration totaling 23 people. Chain immigration is something that Donald Trump has been trying to eliminate and Democrats are trying to preserve for fear it would become harder to bring terrorists into the country.
President Trump wants to return to the immigration laws that were in place prior to Teddy Kennedy pulling a Chappaquiddick on immigration. Before Kennedy, immigrants were allowed into the country based on their job skills, with preference being given to those with skills we need more of, like doctors and nurses.
I believe that Congress will not be able to come up with a new DACA plan that Trump can sign. The reason being is that Democrats and RINOs will insist on chain migration and President Trump won’t accept that.
According to the UK Daily Mail:
President Donald Trump said the suspect in the New York terror attack had been allowed to bring in 23 people as a ‘primary point of contact,’ as he called for changes in the U.S. immigration system just hours after the attack.
‘This man that came in – or whatever you want to call him – brought in, with him, other people,’ the president said at the White House today. ‘And he was a point, he was the point of contact – the primary point of contact for, and this is preliminarily – 23 people that came in, or potentially came in with him.’
‘And that’s not acceptable,’ the president added.
Trump called for a ‘merit-based’ system, as he called for ending the diversity-based lottery program that allowed Uzbekistan-born Sayfullo Saipov to come to the country.
‘We want a merit-based program where people come into our country based on merit. And we want to get rid of chain migration,’ Trump said, referencing the phenomenon where immigrants who come to the U.S. then try to bring family members here.
‘So we want to get rid of chain migration, and we’ve wanted to do that for a long time. And I’ve been wanting to do it for a long time. And we’ll be asking Congress to start working on it immediately,’ Trump said.
He blamed Democratic ‘obstructionists’ for stopping the legislation, although Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona noted on Twitter Wednesday that Democratic Senate leader Charles Schumer of New York proposed scrapping the diversity visa program as part of a broader immigration reform both Flake and Schumer were a part of.
Although the president has some latitude in enacting parts of our immigration policy, he does not have the power to unilaterally do away with the lottery or to end chain migration and the Republican leadership is too cowardly to pass a bill ending both of those provisions. He has endorsed a Senate plan to return immigration to a merit-based system but RINOs like John McCain, Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Bob Corker will probably render that bill to the scrap heap.
