trump%E2%80%99s-immigration-outline-actually-puts-horse-cartAmerican Spectator:

Whatever anyone might think of Donald Trump, his recently unveiled blueprint for immigration reform is a serious plan, worthy of serious consideration. It fundamentally changes the terms of a long-simmering debate that has consistently failed to reach any sort of resolution by establishing a public interest objective, coupled with meaningful deterrence and enforcement.


Three times in the past decade — 2006, 2007, and 2013 — bipartisan immigration “reform” legislation has died in Congress because the plans being proposed were strongly opposed by the American public. Each of those attempts at overhauling our immigration policies were centered on satisfying the demands of millions of people who broke our laws and businesses that wanted even greater access to cheaper foreign labor.


Little, if any, attention was paid to the interests of the American people and the impact that mass amnesty and massive increases in immigration would have on workers, taxpayers, or the common good. The best the politicians could offer were promises of future enforcement — the same ones that had been made and broken countless times — and worthless blather about securing the border, even as they provided new incentives for people to cross it. Understandably, the American public vehemently rejected these bipartisan efforts to sell them out.Scissors-32x32.png

Wanted: Terrific, Classy Foreign Workers; Americans Need Not Apply
Mark Krikorian

September 24, 2015


The CBS affiliate in Miami reports that Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate & resort in Palm Beach has requested hundreds of foreign worker visas for jobs such as cooks, waitresses, and housekeepers. This would appear to conflict with his boast that “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created,” and with the assertion in his immigration policy paper that “we need companies to hire from the domestic pool of unemployed.”


I’d guess that Trump’s reply (his people didn’t respond to the TV reporter) would be a version of what he said about bankruptcy laws in the first debate: “I’ve used immigration laws to do a great job for my companies.” The reporter notes that since airing the story, Mar-A-Lago has reached out to a local job-placement service.




The candidates would do well to heed a woman in the story who just got a waitressing job through the job-placement office in Palm Beach County: “Why are you going to bring other people from a foreign country, take care of them, when you’re not even going to take care of people that are here?” Of course, we don’t need the government to “take care” of us, but it would be nice if it would stop screwing us over quite so much.





Someone who is an Evil Ultra Squishy Establishment GOPe Moderate Who Is Really A Secret Progressive Might ask/wonder Just How Many Illegal Aliens Are Working For DT? Talk about an inconvenient question.
