  • As Trump Barricades the Border, Legal Immigration Is Beginning to Plunge. President Trump’s border wall is beginning to rise, but a thick curtain of policy changes is more responsible for suppressing the flow of immigrants into the country.

    WASHINGTON — President Trump’s immigration policies — like travel bans and visa restrictions or refugee caps and asylum changes — have begun to deliver on a longstanding goal: Legal immigration has fallen more than 11 percent and a steeper cut is looming. While Mr. Trump highlights the construction of a border wall to stress his war on illegal immigration, it is through policy changes, not physical barriers, that his administration has been able to seal the United States. Two more measures were to take effect by Monday, an expansion of his travel ban and strict wealth tests on green card...

    Back in 2000, Melania Knauss, a Slovenian model dating Donald Trump, began petitioning the government for the right to permanently reside in the United States under a program reserved for people with “extraordinary ability.” Knauss’ credentials included runway shows in Europe, a Camel cigarette billboard ad in Times Square and – in her biggest job at the time – a spot in the swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated, which featured her on the beach in a string bikini, hugging a six-foot inflatable whale. She also claimed to be a college graduate. In March 2001, she was granted a green card...
  • Trump Administration Introduces a New Legal Immigration System. Here are the Details.

    Speaking from the Rose Garden Thursday afternoon President Trump introduced a new legal immigration system, in addition to a plan that bolsters border security. "Our plan includes a sweeping modernization of our dysfunctional legal immigration process," Trump said. "The system will finally be fair, transparent, and promote equality and opportunity for all."According to a briefing by senior White House officials prior to the speech, the goal of the new system is to treat border security scientifically, rather than as a political issue, in addition to implementing a merit based legal immigration system. Both will be done while maintaining a number of...

    VIDEO: Michelle Malkin - The Value of Foreign DiplomasColumnist Michelle Malkin says the “establishment Republican ruling class” does not want American citizens questioning the country’s legal immigration system, wherein more than 1.2 million legal immigrants are admitted every year. A recent study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) revealed how so-called “highly skilled” foreign graduates taking coveted U.S. white collar jobs are far less educated than native born Americans. Malkin, during a CIS panel discussion at the, said the billionaire donor class and establishment Republicans do not want Americans focused on the impact of legal immigration — where the...
  • Study: Ending All Legal Immigration for 40 Years Maintains U.S. Workforce

    The United States could suspend all legal immigration to the country for the next 40 years and maintain a workforce where there are still more than two U.S. workers for every one retiree, a new study finds. The latest study by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Steven Camarota reveals that despite claims by the big business lobby, Wall St., and corporate executives that mass legal immigration is necessary to maintain a sizeable workforce, current legal immigration trends have little to no impact on the working-age population. The workforce population is generally measured by the ratio showing the number of U.S....

    President Donald Trump suggested that he is ready to ditch his Inauguration Day promise of a “Hire American” economic policy — even though thousands of auto workers are being laid off, millions of Americans do not have jobs, and many millions of Americans cannot get better-paying jobs. The huge policy shift in favor of employers and investors is emerging after Congress blocked his border wall and his border security reforms, and after the GOP-led Congress passed Trump’s tax cut. “It is fair to say that the President is abandoning his Hire American policy,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center...

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers’ network of billionaire, donor class organizations is cheering President Trump’s recent doubling down on supporting increasing wage-crushing legal immigration levels. As Breitbart News reported, Trump broke from his 2015, 2016, and 2017 “America First” commitment to reduce overall legal immigration levels to raise the wages of America’s working and middle class this week when he doubled down on a call for increasing legal immigration. “We need people in our country because our unemployment numbers are so low and we have massive numbers of companies coming back into our country,” Trump reportedly told the media this...
  • Trump Stands By His SOTU Demand For 'Largest Numbers Ever' Of Legal Immigration: 'We Need People'

    (NOTE- Make sure to read the bolded and underlined portion) President Trump is reversing his campaign commitment to reduce overall legal immigration levels to the United States in order to raise the wages of America’s working and middle class, as he is now demanding more immigration. During his State of the Union (SOTU) address this week, Trump went off-script while discussing national immigration policy, saying he wanted to admit “the largest numbers ever” of legal immigrants to the country. ---- The U.S. is on track to import about 15 million new foreign-born voters in the next two decades should current...

    The Trump administration is using the country’s vast and nearly opaque immigration bureaucracy to constrict the flow of foreign workers into the United States by throwing up new roadblocks to limit legal arrivals. The government is denying more work visas, asking applicants to provide additional information and delaying approvals more frequently than just a year earlier. Hospitals, hotels, technology companies and other businesses say they are now struggling to fill jobs with the foreign workers they need. With foreign hires missing, the employees who remain are being forced to pick up the slack. Seasonal industries like hotels and landscaping are...

    Nearly two out of three American voters say they support President Trump’s plan to reduce overall legal immigration levels in the United States, whereby currently more than 1.5 million legal immigrants arrive annually. In a new poll by Harvard-Harris polling, about 66 percent of voters — or nearly two out of three — said they support a plan by the Trump administration to almost cut legal immigration in half by ending the process known as “chain migration,” as well as the Diversity Visa Lottery, and building a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The deal would couple the wage-boosting relief...

    The parents of first lady Melania Trump have become legal permanent residents of the United States and are close to obtaining their citizenship, according to people familiar with their status, but their attorney declined to say how or when the couple gained their green cards. Immigration experts said Viktor and Amalija Knavs very likely relied on a family reunification process that President Trump has derided as “chain migration” and proposed ending in such cases. The Knavses, formerly of Slovenia, are living in the country on green cards, according to Michael Wildes, a New York-based immigration attorney who represents the first...

    Is it outlandish to say that the welfare of Americans should come before the welfare of potential immigrants in the actions of the American government? No. Of course not. It is reasonable, rational and what almost every other country does without all the name-calling we get from the progressive left in this country.

  • Keep America Safe by Simplifying Legal Immigration System

    Once again, our legal immigration is under well-deserved scrutiny after it was revealed that one of the San Bernardino shooters came to the US legally on K-1 fiancee visa. The US House of Representatives rushed out a new bill to impose restrictions on a visa waiver program. It's a step in the right direction but this kind one-off, reactive approach towards immigration is the root cause of our broken immigration system. Our legal immigration system is so complex today that it can't keep America safe. The US immigration laws are some of the most complex laws we have. As a...

    [...] Malkin, who has the authorial voice throughout most of the book, describes the vaunted H-1B visa program as "the grandfather of all American worker sellouts," implemented by "political tricks, Beltway influence peddlers, and legislative corruption behind the program." Open-borders ideologues and special interests desperate for cheap labor have so thoroughly obscured the issue that even many immigration skeptics don't realize there are many other programs for VIP immigrants... and, as Malkin shows, all of them are outrageously abused. The easiest immigration myth to destroy is the absurd contention that America lacks enough native STEM graduates and computer experts to...

    A century ago the Rust Belt was the country's industrial heartland, with cities like Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Detroit innovating manufacturing processes that drew, among others, large numbers of European and Latin immigrants. When industrial decline eliminated well-paid blue-collar jobs, entire families of new Americans left for more foreign-friendly metropolises to find better work opportunities and living conditions. Today, many of these once-dominant industrial cities are taking steps to attract immigrants and refugees as a way to reverse a half-century of population decline. Welcoming groups in Cleveland, Dayton, Detroit and St. Louis promote immigrant integration within the region, while public officials...
