Huge! President Trump Introduces #RAISEAct To Cut All Immigration / Refugees By 50%

President Trump announced landmark new legislation on Wednesday that intends to cut legal immigration to the United States in half by the end of the decade.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I campaigned on creating a merit-based immigration system that protects U.S. workers &amp; taxpayers.

The new bill will make it much more difficult for immigrants who are working in America with a green card as well as new American citizens to bring their family members into the country, something that Trump supporters will be applauding as a major victory.

The President of the United States of America has argued that the United States has taken in far too many low-skilled immigrants for far too long, which is true, and they only devour the welfare system and take jobs that Americans could otherwise be filling the positions for.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The RAISE Act would raise working Americans’ wages by giving priority to the best-skilled immigrants. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Tom Cotton (@SenTomCotton) <a href="">August 2, 2017</a></blockquote>

The President invited two Republican Senators to the White House to put his hat into the ring behind their bill that would judge applicants for legal residency on the basis of education, language ability and job abilities that would actually benefit the country versus further bog down an already struggling system of social welfare.

Senators David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas will reintroduce the updated version of the legislation, called the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy Act.

“This competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak English, financially support themselves and their families and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy,” President Trump said.

President Trump went on to say, “This legislation will not only restore our competitive edge in the 21st century, but it will restore the sacred bonds of trust between America and its citizens. This legislation demonstrates our compassion for struggling American families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and that puts America first.”

This new legislation measure intends to focus on reducing the number of total people allowed to immigrate into the United States and limit the current practice of family-related immigration.

“Our current immigration system is outdated and doesn’t meet the diverse needs of our economy,” Cotton aide Caroline Rabbitt said.

She went on to say, “Senator Cotton and Senator Perdue will join President Trump to unveil legislation aimed at creating a skills-based immigration system that will make America more competitive, raise wages for American workers, and create jobs.”

President Trump’s highly touted efforts which have focused on a crackdown on illegal immigration at the Mexican border, said last week that immigration reforms must protect American workers.

“Instead of today’s low-skilled system, which is a terrible system where anyone comes in, people who have never worked, people that are criminals, anyone comes in; we want a merit-based system,” he said. “One that protects our workers, protects our taxpayers, and one that protects our economy.”

The White House has said that only 1 in 15 immigrants actually are accepted into the United States because of their skills, and that the current system fails to place a priority on highly skilled immigrants.

Both Senators Perdue and Cotton introduced the legislation back in February that would change the 1965 law to reduce the number of legal immigrants, limiting the number of people who are able to obtain green cards to join their families already in the United States

The bill will also slash the number of incoming refugees in half and eliminate a program that provides visas to countries with low rates of immigration into and out of their sovereign territories.

Now this will be interesting, as anyone with any knowledge of history will be aware the limiters regarding bringing over family members or having skills or the part regarding language is ironically in direct contravention to the original settlers which came from britain, germany, france, ireland, italy, etc. Many had no abilities or skills particuarly useful to America, reading, writing, basic skills, no set language,the list goes on. While it's fully understood and agreed that in the modern day world people should at least either have or be willing to try to be a useful contributor to society, one should also consider that some people through no fault of their own are limited through ability, age, etc. The hope is that it will get used wisely, the worry is that it will be used unfairly against people because of race, religion,etc. Also there are those who are desparatly escaping from intolerance, hatred, famine, insane leaders, ISIS, etc.,Don't forget many of todays Americans were escaping from intolerance, famine, etc, and America being a mostly english speaking country is partly down to luck amongst other things, anyway no doubt haters will dismiss this without thinking any further, but at least it's here. I just wonder what the thoughts of your ancestors would be.

Our ancestors kept blacks as slaves, you weren't even a citizen until you could buy some land.

As regards slaves, don't say it too loud or you'll give herr Drumpf ideas. In the matter of land that depended on where abouts you landed, if you were under a perticular countries authority, did you have a particular skillset, etc. The list goes on for that, also as to which era you where in, some eras you had citizens who couldn't afford land yet because of skills such as bookkeeping were still citizens, in other cases were land was lost through gambling or death of father for example, the relatives were again still citizens. I could go on but there are innumerable books which can far more accurately impart this information, however one avenue of search which is overlooked many times are in fact the originator countries in europe, etc. Their historical records are for one older where still extant and two gives an interesting view of the development of the USA that is tainted only by their view rather than the inner fview of US history. When combined and given allowance for societal loyalty, factual accuracy, etc presents a much wider and deeper pictures. The stresses and strains were far different, and in reality very few owned slaves overall, or land except for certain 'boom' eras.

Just so you know, no children are allowed under the points system as 'every' person must have 30 points minimum, the max a standard under 18 kid who hasn't got a nobel, a business, a job offer, currently received their exam results but 'has managed to get top marks on the english exam, is' 12 points. So I guess kids are now worthless, nice to know what Trump thinks of kids. I wonder what, if anything, he thinks of yours?
