I have been telling folks the last few days that our President was going to take the option of terminating DACA by not issuing any new permits or renewing any previously issued ones. The caveat I didn’t see happening is he will delay the implementation for six months in order to give Congress time to consider a package that includes the RAISE Act.
The RAISE Act will change the face of legal immigrants for generations to come. Instead of Mexico, Central and South America, all future legal immigrants will be from China, India, the rest of Asia and Eastern Europe. It also cuts the number of legal immigrants from 1 million a year to 500K. In doing so, it will kill the CoC’s dream of Family Chain Migration which accounts for 75%+ of all legal immigrants under the current system. 70%+ of Americans are in favor of the RAISE Act.
I respect people that want our President not to negotiate at all when it comes to immigration. However, having the RAISE Act become the law of the land will have implications that will end the Democrats and Uniparty Republicans once and for all. All new legal immigrants will be highly educated and won’t be voting for Democrats. They will be voting for Republicans in numbers that can’t be quantified.
It will trim the inflow of lower-skilled immigrants who are now being brought into the country via “chain migration” family reunification rules. That reform would save $1 trillion in long-term aid, education, retirement, and welfare spending for every decade the inflow is cut in half.
Trumpism requires the RAISE Act to be implemented for it to continue for generations to come. We are talking about the next 50+ years that will destroy Globalism once and for all! For me, allowing the Dreamers to have a permanent green card 💳 is well worth it! Sorry 😐 if that offends you!
President Donald Trump has decided to formally end President Barack Obama’s legally troubled “DACA” amnesty for 800,000 younger illegal immigrants, according to Politico.
Trump’s decision will anger business interests, progressives, and the establishment media sector, and some business-friendly GOP leaders, such as House Speaker Paul Ryan. But the decision likely will be broadly popular among the majority of Americans.
Many polls show that Americans sympathize with the illegals, but also strongly prefer that immigration laws be used to ensure that Americans workers are not disadvantaged by the corporate hiring of cheap illegal migrants.
Trump is expected to combine his Tuesday announcement of the program’s demise with a call for Congress to pass pro-American immigration reform, such as the popular Raise Act merit immigration bill.
In a nod to reservations held by many lawmakers, the White House plans to delay the enforcement of the president’s decision for six months, giving Congress a window to act, according to one White House official. But a senior White House aide said that chief of staff John Kelly, who has been running the West Wing policy process on the issue, “thinks Congress should’ve gotten its act together a lot longer ago.”
The immigration reform debate is expected to stretch far into the 2018 election year, partly because many other issues clog up Congress’ near-term calendar. Also, Democrats and business groups oppose any reduction in the annual legal inflow of roughly 850,000 low-skill, low-wage workers.
Trump’s pending Raise Act reform would trim the inflow of lower-skilled immigrants who are now being brought into the country via “chain migration” family reunification rules. That reform would likely save $1 trillion in long-term aid, education, retirement, and welfare spending for every decade the inflow is halved, according to a recent estimate. That reduced taxpayer spending translates into lower revenue forecasts for business interests.
The Trump reform would also help many Americans and their children find better jobs at higher wages, business groups admit.
The decision to end DACA was driven by several factors. They included Trump’s campaign trail promise to close down the amnesty, and the broad consensus among legal experts — including Attorney General Jeff Sessions — that Obama’s Oval Office offer of work-permit to illegal violates the constitutional separation of powers.

Also, a group of nine Attorneys General is slated to file a lawsuit against the program on September 5.
