The Georgia Republican Party is preparing to take up a resolution calling upon President Donald Trump to enact a full immigration moratorium in the wake of the coronavirus recession.
The resolution, which is slated to be approved at the party’s upcoming convention, expresses approval for President Trump’s restrictions on new immigration visas during the coronavirus recession. The resolution calls for the restrictions to be expanded to a full moratorium, eliminating the generous big-business exemptions that the visa cut provided. White House sources indicate that President Trump’s immigration restriction executive order were initially slated to go far further, but was watered down by Jared Kushner and other pro-big business Chamber of Commerce sympathizers within the administration.
The Georgia GOP’s resolution calls for President Trump to Expand the Ban, citing the pervasive economic insecurity many Americans are facing as a result of unemployment during the coronavirus recession.
“NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Georgia Republican Party commends and supports President Donald J. Trump’s leadership in protecting American jobs during the pandemic by restricting immigration during the present health and economic crisis.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Georgia Republican Party urges President Trump to issue a second executive order that removes the various special interest exceptions to the first executive order and shall strictly limit new immigration visas until the economy reaches its pre-pandemic unemployment rate of no greater than 3.5 percent.”
The Georgia Republican Party’s resolution places it firmly in support of immigration restriction, a policy which establishment Republican political operatives had strenuously sought to exclude from Republican policy despite widespread support among Republican voters and the American people.
The Trump administration is said to be actively considering further immigration and visa restrictions in light of the recession, eyeing the notorious cheap labor H1B and OPT visa programs frequently used by large corporations to displace American workers.
SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check
Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.
Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.
The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.
The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.
Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”
Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.
Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
