A strong 47% of Americans support immigration levels that are reduced from the yearly average of nearly 1,200,000 new immigrants per year, with 33% of Americans(the most popular response) favoring immigration policies that would reduce authorized immigration levels below 500,000, and 14% favoring immigration policy that would admit 750,000 immigrants per year.

Additionally, a solid majority of Americans support outright eliminating chain migration policies that enable immigrants to bring over their extended family and their spouse’s family to the United States.

A strong majority of 62% of Americans support enforcing a federal E-Verify program that would prevent illegal aliens from accessing American jobs. 37% of Americans think the federal government is doing “too little” to secure the southern border even after President Trump’s border security reforms, with 20% thinking existing policies are “just right” and 33% thinking the government is doing “too much.”

The only liberal immigration policy proposal that the public seems to support is providing an amnesty to illegal aliens who were brought to the country as minors. This population of two million aliens is already eligible for amnesty under the DACA program, which remains in place after the Supreme Court overthrew a Trump administration regulation abolishing it.

A combined majority of 53% of Americans support immigration policies that would either “slow down” existing immigration-driven population growth or halt it entirely. 39% of Americans support the former, and 14% support the latter. 63% percent of Americans reject the notion that the government should admit foreign workers to fill American jobs, insisting that businesses instead should raise wages for American workers.

Corporate libertarian and neoliberal groups have claimed that American public opinion has shifted in support of immigration during the Trump presidency, an assertion that appears to be false judging from the new Rasmussen poll.

The survey of 1,250 national likely voters was conducted from August 9th to 13th.

SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check

Published

on

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.
