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.

INSANE: Engineer Ran Train Off Tracks to Damage Coronavirus HOSPITAL SHIP
An unthinkable act of possible terrorism.
A Los Angeles engineer reportedly derailed a train, sending it in the direction of the hospital ship USNS Mercy with the hopes of damaging the vessel Tuesday.
Eduardo Moreno of San Pedo is being charged with one count of train wrecking.
Prosecutors are claiming that Moreno was intentionally trying to damage the hospital ship. They allude to the possibility of Moreno being a conspiracy theorist of some sort, evidently believing that the hospital ship was going to be used for nefarious purposes.
Moreno is said to have crashed a Pacific Harbor Line train, running it off the rails and sending it careening through a barricade to the Port of Los Angeles’ docks. The train crashed through several barriers and fences, crossing over two gravel parking lots. It ceased moving before reaching the Mercy, coming to rest just before the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
No one was injured from the derailing of the train, but a leakage of fuel from the machine required a hazmat team to respond to the incident.
Moreno allegedly told investigators that he was “suspicious” of the ship, not believing that “the ship is what they say it’s for.” The locomotive engineer reportedly went on to say that “you only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”
A Department of Justice press release on Moreno’s arrest and criminal charge describes the man as admitting to derailing the train with the intention of damaging the ship.
The Mercy docked at the Port of Los Angeles over the weekend. The vessel in present in the area to assist in containment measures for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, in a similar fashion to the hospital ship USNS Comfort’s presence in New York City.
Derailing a train with the intention of damaging a hospital ship is an extreme criminal act, to put it lightly. The incident may have possible terrorist ramifications if it’s made clear that Moreno wanted to damage the ship for overt political purposes.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor this situation.
Video surfaced of the halted train and the damage it inflicted on the municipal docks on Tuesday.
