Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told a crowd at a private gathering in England on Wednesday night that the Trump administration needs more immigrants...
We are desperate desperate for more people, Mulvaney said. We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that weve had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants. [In a recording shared with Washington Post]
Mulvaneys remarks appear in contrast to the public position of several top figures in Trumps White House especially that of senior policy adviser Stephen Miller who have been working to slash legal and illegal immigration through a slew of policies that aim to close off the U.S. border to foreigners. They have insisted that the steady arrival of newcomers depresses wages for the blue-collar U.S. workers whose votes helped lift Trump to the presidency in 2016.
During a visit to the border last year amid a record surge of Central American families and children crossing into the United States, the president said the country could not absorb more newcomers.
Our country is full, Trump said. Cant take you anymore . . . so turn around.
Mulvaneys private remarks were more in line with conventional GOP views of immigration...

>> How many workers have been aborted??
Yup, trading abortions for immigration. Selfishness all around.
Sorry, did not see that from this morning, about 10 hours ago.
In short, we will take professionally educated, English speaking refuges from the UK’s insane slide to the left.
not the chaos we have now thanks to the Democrats.
The chaos we have now was completely bipartisan.
Bill Clinton actually did more enforcement that either Bush.
We need to close the border to ALL immigration for at least forty years.
How could this guy be doing anything at all helpful for the President? Fire him immediately!
Thumbs up, Miller.
Thumbs down, Mulvaney.
We can see 3% economic growth for the foreseeable future simply by bringing manufacturing jobs in ( Democrat/Obama) devastated industries back to the US.
Watched in disgust as near brand new bio tech facilities , pharmaceutical plants and solar companies were cut up and auctioned off for pennies on the dollar and shipped to China thanks to Democrat/ Obama legislation and regulations that killed the domestic viability of the plants.
To keep the growth rolling we need skilled workers and they are just not available in today's American labor pool
Thanks mulvany but I’ll pass
Thanks mulvany but I’ll pass
Time to fire this treacherous fool Mulvaney
Let me get this straight; the Washington Compost reports this and Freepers IMMEDIATELY jump aboard the Compost express. Buy into the Composts report without question. And, start to trash Mulvaney based solely on a Compost Report.
Does no one see a problem with this? I for one do and am growing very tired of it. This is a pattern, a Lemming Pattern a very great many Freepers repeatedly exhibit on a daily basis. Every report by the Lying Fake “news” media is assumed by too many here to be accurate and the person the “media” smears is then joined by Freepers in the smear. Immediately acting as if the report by the Lying Media is the gospel truth.
It’s sickeningly pathetic Lemming behavior which totally ignores the fact that the MSM pattern of TDS and Lies to subvert this President are so numerous to count yet, too many here fall for every MSM “report” hook, line, and sinker.
The doesnt undermine the President.
We DO need more legal immigrants. We are in a dying demographic situation. If our kids are not going to have babies, we need someone to fill the jobs.
Many folks on this thread come across as the libs portray us: people who are afraid of immigrants.
Dont confuse illegal immigrants with legal contributing immigrants.
They claim to have audio.
Do you think theyre flat out lying? If they are all Mulvaney has to do is deny the report and call their bluff. They would be screwed.
Amazing how many people dump on immigrants yet fail to address at all the math problem Mulvaneys talking about.
“They claim to have audio.”
Really? Then why haven’t they published it? Why the “report” minus the “claimed” audio? Why does Mulvaney have to disprove an accusation made by the Compost?
In the USA the Burden of Proof is on the accuser NOT on the accused.
Your post proves my point about too many Freepers.
Too many foreigners here.
The political reality in the world of political correctness is that our immigration policy may not discriminate on the basis of merit, because to do so is be Demagogued and labeled, "racist."
To accept people into the country who are unqualified to contribute in our race for survival against the Chinese, is to sell our country to a few elitists who swell the ranks of those who cannot compete in the 21st century. The whole game is a giant Ponzi scheme which will bring us to ruin and bankruptcy but it does at least provide nannies, gardeners and cheap labor for elitists.
“We are desperate for employees who can do simple math, have no criminal record of violence or theft, and show up to work on time.”
Pay an American wage, or go under.
