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

Published

on

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.”

Biden Executive Order Terminates Construction of New Border Wall

Published

on

President Joe Biden signed an executive order halting the construction of new border wall on the southern border in one of his first actions as President.

The order terminates an emergency proclamation that allowed discretion to divert federal funding towards wall construction.

The proclamation will direct an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used, and it will determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction,” said Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.

The termination of wall construction comes as a Central American caravan numbering in the thousands travels through Honduras and Guatemala, with the intention of securing immigration amnesty from President Biden. The leaders of the caravan have cited Biden’s left-wing immigration promises as the imperative for its formation, demanding he honor what they see as promises of admittance.

Drug-cartel human smugglers are already chomping at the bit at the idea of resuming illegal immigration smuggling en masse during Biden’s presidency, assured that they’ll have free reign to infiltrate America’s borders in a manner akin to the state of affairs under previous establishment Presidents.

Biden also signed Trump’s executive order overturning a travel ban from several high-risk nations. Another executive order re-enrolls the United States into the globalist Paris Climate Accords, which mandates strict carbon emissions curbs on the United States without imposing similar requirements on China.
