“Democrats are proposing open borders, lower wages, and frankly, lawless chaos,” Trump said today from the Rose Garden when he unveiled his new immigration plan.
“We are proposing an immigration plan that puts the jobs, wages, and safety of American workers first. Our proposal is pro-American, pro-immigrant and pro-worker,” he added.
Finally…but the left, led by Nancy Pelosi, is not happy. Pelosi took the stage to bash the plan and ended up embarrassing her by slurring through half her speech.
From The Gateway Pundit: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is already attacking President Trump’s proposed merit-based immigration plan as racist.
President Trump on Thursday will lay out a new immigration plan that would push the United States toward the kind of merit-based system many other nations use to control who comes into their countries.
Under the new proposal, the number of immigrants admitted into the country based on job skills would rise from 12% to 57%. In order to make room for more merit-based immigrants, the percentage of people allowed entry because they have family here would drop from 66% to 33%. In addition, the number allowed in via claims of asylum would also be cut, from 22% to 10%.
Nancy Pelosi doesn’t like this plan and says it’s “condescending.”
Pelosi and the Democrats want illiterate, low skill, dependent immigrants (legal and illegal) flooding into the US because it’s a huge voting bloc and will permanently entrench the Democrat party.
“It is really a condescending word,” Pelosi said in response to a reporter from ABC News asking about the new proposed immigration plan.
Pelosi stuttered and slurred her words as she rattled off Democrat talking points about the US being a nation of immigrants — failing to mention that the US had very strict immigration policies based on merit until the 1965 Immigration Act signed by Democrat president Lyndon Johnson.
We simply cannot survive as a nation if we have illiterate, low skill immigrants and all of their dependents come to this country only to live off the largess of the American taxpayer.
