Sen. Tom Cotton (R-TX), co-sponsor of the RAISE Act, is sounding the alarm about the Trump administration’s shift on immigration policy.
Too much cheap foreign labor artificially suppresses wages and takes jobs from Americans. The number of H-2B visas for low-skilled, non-agricultural labor has nearly doubled since 2009. https://t.co/eNldRJhNmd

Trump had once supported Cotton’s RAISE Act, which would cut the number of legal immigrants by half to help protect American workers. He has changed his tune in recent months, as senior advisor Jared Kushner’s influence has effectively swayed the President.
“We’re going to let a lot of people come in because we need workers,” Trump said earlier this year. “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.”
Kushner has been working diligently with many globalist lobbying organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, George W. Bush Center, and several trade groups to push for more low-skilled and high-skilled foreign labor to put the squeeze on US workers.
As a result, Trump’s immigration policy looks much more like the status quo than anything he proposed on the campaign trail heading into the 2016 presidential election.
Cotton remains the leading stalwart in the Senate pushing for Trump to ditch the corporate Chamber of Koch gang and return to his populist roots on immigration.
“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 following the re-introduction of the RAISE Act.
“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,” he added.
It will be hard for Cotton to achieve these goals without the support of the President, who seems adamant that more foreign labor is needed to further boost corporate profit margins.
“All these companies are coming into our country, they’re all coming into our country, and when they come in, we need people that are going to work. I’m telling you, we need workers now. We need workers,” Trump said at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference.
Because of Kushner’s successful efforts in lobbying Trump to jettison his immigration mandate, American workers will have far more competition for high-paying jobs in the U.S. marketplace.
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.
