Although President Donald Trump may have changed his tune on immigration in recent months, several top Republican Senators are refusing to give up on the fight for US workers.
Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), David Perdue (R-GA) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) are re-introducing the RAISE Act that would cut the number of legal immigrants by half, which is in opposition of Trump’s new stated policy goal of bringing in more foreign workers than ever into the US.
“We’re going to let a lot of people come in because we need workers,” Trump said last month. “We have to have workers. These are low numbers, and in one way I love it, but in another way I don’t want to make it hard for you to get those companies rolling … with really great people.”
The conservative legislators are pushing back against the influence of Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. Kushner has been working with many globalist organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, George W. Bush Center, and several trade groups to craft immigration policy that will bring in more low-skilled and high-skilled foreign labor to compete with US workers.
The lawmakers behind the RAISE Act are trying to save the Trump administration from the special interests who are on the verge of co-opting immigration policy to restore the globalist status quo.
“For decades our immigration system has been completely divorced from the needs of our economy, and working Americans’ wages have suffered as a result. Our legislation will set things right,” Sen. Cotton said in a press release. “We will build an immigration system that raises working wages, creates jobs, and gives every American a fair shot at creating wealth, whether your family came over on the Mayflower or just took the oath of citizenship.”
Sen. Perdue made it clear that the RAISE Act is about holding Trump to his electoral mandate on immigration.
“President Trump campaigned on growing our economy and fixing our immigration system,” Sen. Perdue said. “Right now, our current immigration system does not meet the needs of our economy. We want to welcome talented individuals from around the world who wish to come to the United States legally to work and make a better life for themselves. The RAISE Act will create a skills-based system that is more responsive to the needs of our economy and preserves the quality of jobs available to American workers.”
President Trump may be finally getting the message that his immigration policy has gone awry, after the resignation of ineffectual Department of Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and the re-emergence of immigration hawk Stephen Miller as a force in the administration.
It remains to be seen if Trump will endorse the latest reiteration of the RAISE Act or continue his push to flood the country with legal immigrants to maximize corporate profits.
Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
