Trump calls for more immigration
« on: March 06, 2019, 07:31:08 PM »
This certainly squashes my hope for him shutting down the border and declaring a moratorium on immigration.  A North American Union seems more and more like a reality as time goes on.


Trump calls for more immigration


President Trump said Wednesday he wants more immigration because U.S. companies need more workers.

Trump, who often is viewed as hostile to immigrants, explained that his emphasis on ending illegal immigration does not mean he wants people to stop coming into the U.S. altogether, saying immigrants are welcome to enter the country legally.

“We want to have a very strong border, but we want to have a lot of people coming in,” Trump said during a White House meeting with more than 20 CEOs and officials from state and local governments. “A lot of people don’t understand that. They think we’re shutting it out. We’re not shutting it out. We want people to come in, but they have to come in through a process.”

The president highlighted the low unemployment rate, which he said currently sits at around 3.6 percent.

“We’re going to let a lot of people come in because we need workers,” Trump said on Wednesday afternoon “We have to have workers.

He's right a lot of people were not paying attention.  He called for touchback amnesty.  He was supposedly going to send them back to their countries and bring them back in through the big beautiful door in the wall.

I would ask don't you think Mr. President that enough have come with the open borders since you were elected?  If they government wants to bring people in so that companies have workers they need to shut down the social programs that Americans have to pay for.  If they want to supply health insurance, food stamps, cash assistance, housing and phones to illegal immigrants the companies that want cheap labor should provide it.  Not me.
Some people have an ability to negotiate. It's an art you're basically born with. You either have it or you don't.

It would take an hour-and-a-half to learn everything there is to learn about missiles. I think I know most of it anyway. You're talking about just getting updated on a situation

Perfect. I've said Trump should do this for a while now. Since the kneejerk autonomic reaction of Democrats/NeverTrumps is to oppose anything and everything that Trump is for, the best thing Trump could do is to come out 'in favor' of everything the Democrats claim to be for.

Trump should declare that one of the major goals of his administration is to have free and open borders (or no border at all), free tuition for all, and free medicare coverage for everyone on Earth.

By declaring himself in favor of every Democrat proposal, Trump will throw them into chaos. Since the 'resist' Party only exists to resist everything Trump, they will be in a state of confusion, forced to oppose their own policies.

I hope to see Trump doing more and more of this. It is a perfect strategy.

Well, glad you see it as a strategy.  Signing a bill that allows states to opt out of a barrier, extending TPs amnesty and no border wall and wanting more immigration is not what I'd consider a strategy. I'd say it's giving away the sovereignty of our country.

What?  For 3 years and every rally, my president TRUMP has said he is for LEGAL IMMIGRATION.  LEGAL.  This thread title and article is BOGUS and deceptive.  LEGAL, LEGAL, LEGAL.   SMH.  None of you know that?

Lying, half truth article...only at the end will they say what is the truth. President never said stopping ALL LEGAL IMMIGRATION...only closing border for ILLEGAL INVADERS CRASHING OUR OLD FENCES...that is why we need, repaired and NEW BARRIER'S. People coming legally by merit, documents, vetted.   Reading peoples lies is my Achilles heel.   
----------------------

Trump appeared to make a special effort to emphasize his desire for new, but legal, immigrants.


“We’re going to have a lot of people coming into the country. We want a lot of people coming in, and we need it,” he said.

Trump also said he spoke with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who said several Japanese companies are planning to come to the U.S., locating in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

“I was with Prime Minister Abe the other day, and he said ... that Japan’s going to be sending about seven — at least seven more big factories into this country,” Trump said.

It doesn't say illegal.  Protest much!  We have enough cheap labor.  Companies should pay for the social benefits that cheap labor comes here for.

Like billionaire Trump and his hotels.  If those workers require benefits for their families because they don't make enough it should be Trump that pays it.  Not the citizens of America.

You were talking about Socialism.  What Trump is advocating is socialism.

Indeed.  They can try to implement e-verify all they want, it will NOT work.  John Doe the contractor can still hire illegals, who's to stop him?  Who is going to check the self-employed contractor who hires illegals and pays them under the table?  It is done all the time.  Fore example; Private restaurants hire illegal cooks and dishwashers. Private beauty salons hire illegal nail tech and hair stylists, etc.  Who is going to check on them?  No one.  The only way would be for citizens such as you and I suspecting illegals are working and calling and reporting them to ICE.  Even at that ICE is much to busy to come out and investigate small businesses with just a couple of illegals here and there.   So, small private businesses hire cheap labor, and don't pay taxes. The illegals reap the benefits and don't pay taxes either.  It happens all the time.

Its a scam on Americans.  When Trump was campaigning it was well known that illegal immigrants were working on the DC Trump building.  It was also known and continues to leak that they are working in his golf courses and hotels.  You can bet that Americans are picking up the tab for health and other social needs.

Even the group 'Numbers USA' has been pushing e-verify for years. E-verify only keeps the 'honest' people honest.  It's really IMHO quite futile in a lot of cases.

   Sharpen up the teeth in EVerify should have been pursued also the last two years when we had control of both houses. 
   I've indicated all along, remove the incentive for them to come and that solves almost half your problem immediately.

LEGAL IMMIGRATION .
I am delighted to agree with you @LegalAmerican .  It says LEGAL IMMIGRATION.  Just because you expand legal immigration doesn't mean you have to accept inferior people or inferior workers.

According to the Administration, and everybody on TV, the economy is rocking and jobs are being created while unemployment is dropping.  Correct me if I'm wrong.  When legal business in the US can't keep up with demand because it doesn't have enough legal workers it has two legal choices...lose sales and cede them to foreign business, or invest in tech that replaces workers.  Neither solution benefits our country IMO.

Sen Cruz proposed a similar solution.  Supplant illegal immigration with qualified legal workers and reduce the vacuum for illegal workers.

I am very excited to hear the President say this. happy77

Legal vs. illegal.  I get it.  That's not stopping the hundreds of thousands pouring over our borders and once we lose our country, it's really not going to matter at that point.  Angela Merkel thought it was a lovely idea as well.

Ok.  Get congress DEMON-RATS and RINO'S to vote for that.  Do you see the problem?  It is NOT ABOUT NEEDING IDEAS....IT IS THE RESIST, OBSTRUCT PARTY.....that won't change these horrible laws, that work against America and us citizens.  Too many hispanic's, muslims, blacks, turd world country people in CONGRESS now. LA RAZA JUDGES, S.C. SOTOMAYER..also a member of La Raza.  9th circuit court, blocking every move president TRUMP makes, to help America & its citizens.  In fact, under Obama tax payers funded, paid for LA RAZA programs.  Why? FUNDING THE ENEMY.

GET CONGRESS..PELOSI, SCHUMER, AOC, CUMMINGS, WARREN, LEE, HANK JOHNSON, MAD MAXINE TO VOTE FOR THAT. 
There are more, just giving you an example. Mitt Romney..the new traitor John McCain.  Collins, Murkowski..Flake etc.

   Crap, @LegalAmerican 'EVerify' is already coded it would take a simple 'EO' to actually enforce it, next, go after VISA overstays by upgrading Customs w/Biometric Passports  (not to be confused w/US Citizens).
   2 important steps could possibly eliminate the need for your $25B boondoggle on the Southern Border and much cheaper. 
   The border has been there for 165 years and never been an Emergency until Trump was elected.  I've offered you what I think are logical solutions to an increasingly screwed up situation.

IMHO, it's too late to resolve the problems of this country at the ballot box.  WE the People ARE responsible for electing all the RINO's and Democrats.  LaRaza is an entity that people fail to acknowledge.  Julian Castro is now running for President.  His mother was instrumental in the start of LaRaza.  Yet, I am told that he is insignificant and poses no threat.  America has voted for people who talk the talk but fail to walk the walk, because the fail to do a little research.  They continue to elect people who are not truly interested in adhering to the Constitution or to the principles upon which this country was founded.  Those people in government are very small in number.

When McCain ran against Bammy ... I voted for neither as I knew that there was little difference.  One would just destruct our country at a slower pace than the other.  One was a RINO.  One was a liberal.  America obviously didn't learn as they continued to vote for Congressmen in the same way.  Here we sit.

If you think I believe we should accept Muslim terrorist as immigrants let me dissuade of that notion right now.  I only applaud immigration by qualified candidates and think it might be a good idea to fill the job vacuum with legal workers instead of illegal border jumpers.  It is my belief that if illegal workers could not find employment here...that would be good.

Yes the border has been here.  There's been a crisis at the border for quite some time. The Secure Fence Act of 2006 was voted on and passed by BOTH parties.  It has never been fully funded.  The demise of that funding occurred during the Bammy administration.  Trump brought focus to the crisis at the border.  He demanded accountability and stats on illegal immigration and for that I have to give him credit.  Now that Trump has made a push for the border (finally) it's become an issue and yes, an increasingly screwed up situation, that is destroying our country rapidly.

This Congress, and the past Congress, led by Ryan and McConnell have FAILED miserably.  They had every opportunity with their majority to resolve this issue. By waiting till the 11th hours, Trump's leadership FAILED on this issue as well. (I know, here come the stones).

Interesting that some of the very same people who voted FOR the Fence in 2006 are now opposed to further funding.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

How could you not vote for John McCain @libertybele   :shrug:


She was obviously right. I saw them too.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

   @libertybele I regret to inform you that it was my TX Sen. Kay Bailey (whom Cruz replaced) that put the golden stake into the Secure Fence Act funding, striped what little was funded for Education. 
   Evil Woman and the guy she replaced Bob Krueger, hometown boy, was much worse. 
   I just cannot possibly believe at this point that anyone in DC, including the Administration, is serious about Immigration Reform, of any kind, whether it be legal or illegal and that has been going on way before Trump got there, he just shamelessly promoted it as a Campaign issue and is getting his butt bit.
No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
