KUSHNERNOMICS: President’s Son-in-Law Pushes for More Third-World Immigrants to Boost Corporate Profits
President Trump’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is aggressively rehabbing his proposal to flood the United States with third-world immigrants in order to boost corporate profits.
Reports indicate that Kushner is proposing a policy that would give “merit-based” visas to third-world immigrants to fill jobs that would otherwise go to American citizens. This will not only crowd Americans out of the job market, but also lower the wages of Americans who are currently employed. He also wants to create a new immigration czar, another federal bureaucrat to add to the Washington D.C. swamp.
The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) is highly critical of Kushner’s plan that they believe will lead to more foreigners getting green cards, and continue significantly to the demographic winter that the U.S. is staring down.
“What they do is they take Tom Cotton’s RAISE Act, which created a merit system which the president liked, and they basically puff it out to cover more people, more types of applicant types and a huge increase in numbers,” said Jessica Vaughn, who works as director of policy studies for CIS.
Kushner’s plan is to create a new “Build America Visa” that would apply to supposedly “extraordinarily talented individuals,” but that criteria is extremely subjective. Corporatist groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce want the Trump administration to open the flood gates for mass immigration because it will be good for their bottom line.
“Every incumbent president is interested in a growing economy, particularly in an election year,” said Neil Bradley, who works as chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“One of the headwinds that the economy is facing is a lack of available workers and no sense that there’s any relief in sight,” he added.
Sadly, President Trump is following Kushner’s lead and backing away from the pledge for a truly “America First” immigration policy that he made on the campaign trail in 2016.
“To build on these historic gains, we are working on legislation to replace our outdated and randomized immigration system with one based on merit, welcoming those who follow the rules, contribute to our economy, support themselves financially and uphold our values,” Trump said.
“We have to allow smart people to stay in our country,” Trump told Laura Ingraham of Fox News last month. “We don’t have enough of them. And we have to be competitive with the rest of the world too.”
Big League Politics has reported on the many times that Kushner has pushed for mass immigration in the past:
McClatchy DC reported on Kushner’s scheming with individuals from the Koch-affiliated Libre Initiative, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and other open border groups as he exploited the government shutdown crisis to push amnesty…
The situation worsened in February when Kushner allowed globalist organizations to dominate talks on immigration reform. Breitbart News exposed organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, George W. Bush Center, and several trade groups pushing for cheap labor were given seats at the table while patriotic, ‘America First’ organizations were sidelined from discussions. As the lobbying continued, Trump’s rhetoric has gotten weaker and weaker on immigration.
“We need an immigration policy that helps all Americans thrive, flourish, prosper. We need an immigration policy that’s going to be great for our corporations and our great companies,” Trump said during an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. “We need an immigration policy where people coming into our country can love our country and love our fellow citizens.”
Kushner has been too incompetent to get these measures passed up until this point, but he remains steadfastly determined to enact globalist immigration policies that will hurt the American worker immeasurably.
