Immigration Patriot Jeff Sessions Calls for Temporary Immigration Moratorium
Alabama Senate candidate Jeff Session is calling for a temporary immigration moratorium.
On April 16, 2020 he announced his plan to stop all employment-based immigration until the U.S. unemployment rate doesn’t go below 3.5 percent.
To put this in perspective, unemployment was at those levels in February before the Wuhan virus swept through America.
Sessions tweeted, “More than 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment since mid-March. That’s 12% of American labor force going without a paycheck! That’s why I’m calling on the federal gov to IMMEDIATELY halt immigration to the US until Americans are back to work. http://jeffsessions.com/press-releases/stop-until-americans-can-work/“

“American families and workers must come first. It is morally wrong and economically disastrous to import more foreign workers when millions of Americans are out of work through no fault of their own,” Sessions declared in his press statement.
Sessions added: “Under my plan, we will put Americans back to work before we bring in more foreign labor. Visitors who do not have the virus can still come to the United States, and foreign investment in our businesses and economy will continue to be welcomed, but employment immigration will cease until our national unemployment rate is back below 3.5 percent, as it was in February before this pandemic. Rare exceptions will be granted only in critical, time-sensitive industries like farming, and only if the employer proves they tried to hire Americans first.”
Sessions is the clear immigration patriot choice in this race.
His challenger Tommy Tuberville has made tepid statements about dealing with China and its failure to contain the Wuhan Virus. Nor has he even suggested restricted migration from China, a country know for weaponizing its migrants and using them as Fifth Columns abroad.
Tuberville also uses generic talking points about stopping illegal immigration but is very much in favor of the D.C. status quo of continuing mass migration via legal means. In addition, Tuberville has played a major role in validating political correctness. While he was coach of University of Mississippi’s football team, Tuberville called on University of Mississippi fans to abandon the Confederate flag at games.
Sessions is the clear immigration patriot choice in Alabama’s Senate primaries. His track record in the U.S. Senate speaks for itself.
To bring some semblance of sanity to immigration matters in America, more Senators like Sessions will be needed.
