Sen. David Perdue: Iran is the No. 3 country in the Diversity Visa Lottery program



President Donald J. Trump’s strongest supporter in the Senate told Fox News hostess Laura Ingraham Wednesday that he supports up-ending the Diversity Visa Lottery, as well as, other permissive immigration programs.

“Let’s talk about this Diversity Visa Lottery,” said Sen. David A. Perdue Jr. (R.-Ga.). “This is a big fraud–it is fraught with fraud itself. It has social security fraud. It has identity fraud.”

Perdue, who sat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in last Congress and now sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he is very concerned about the DVL program’s weakening our national security.

“Thirty percent of the visas given out under this system go to countries that have been identified by ICE as harboring and promoting terrorism,” he said. “In fact, the third largest recipient country for these visas is Iran. This is an insidious program. It needs to go away tonight.”

There are lessons we can learn from other countries, the senator said.

“Most countries have already moved to protect their borders, their national security, and to provide for their economic growth and they do that within the immigration system,” he said.

“Canada and Australia did this decades ago: They went to a merit-based system where they bring the right kind of people in today relative to the economy and we don’t,” he said.

Perdue said his legislation that he is sponsoring with Sen. Thomas B. Cotton (R.-Ark.), the RAISE Act, would eliminate the DVL program and return America’s immigration policies to a merit-based program, instead of the family-chain system we now have.

“What we want to do in a merit-based system is eliminate chain migration,” he said. “This is based on the same conclusion that the Democrats came to under Bill Clinton.”

Perdue said President George W. Bush created a commission to look at immigration and when the commission recommended a merit-based system, Clinton again supported it.

The former Reebok CEO said he and Cotton are not pushing for anything that has not worked in the past.

“If you look at our historical immigration, they came in, assimilated into the community, they learned English, they developed the skills, and they contributed to the economy,” he said.

“What we have going today is this politically correct idea that calls for an open border.”

President Trump Preparing New Executive Order to Rescind DACA Amnesty After SCOTUS Decision

SCOTUS threw out the last one on procedural grounds.



White House sources have indicated that President Donald Trump is planning on signing a new executive order to terminate President Obama’s DACA amnesty program this week.

The Supreme Court had thrown out an earlier executive order to terminate the program in a court ruling last month, terminating the federal drive to enforce American immigration laws on supposed procedural inadequacies.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested that the President would soon sign a new executive order to terminate the amnesty program, while speaking on Fox and Friends on Monday morning. “Starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act.

The President has spoken openly of his intention to terminate DACA a second time after the Supreme Court’s arbitrary decision. The court’s ruling had established that the President has complete authority to terminate the amnesty for a selected population of almost a million illegal immigrants, expanded by President Obama without congressional approval in 2014.

The court’s own ruling will likely prevent the judicial branch from overthrowing a second DACA termination executive order, having admitted that the federal government has every right to terminate the program that was implemented on a whim.

Liberal billionaire oligarchs such as George Soros and Charles Koch continue to fund an influence campaign to maintain the amnesty order, hoping to secure a status quo of open borders and weak immigration laws with the hopes of delivering a broad pool of affordable labor for large businesses and the American elite.
