    Bill would create 500,000 new visas, include path to citizenship, and be open to current aliens. A bill introduced this month by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) would increase foreign guest workers by up to 500,000 a year and offer a back-door amnesty for illegal immigrants. The legislation, the State Sponsored Visa Pilot Program Act of 2017, has attracted support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the libertarian-oriented Cato Institute. The bill would represent a massive increase in the number of non-immigrant visas issued each year by the United States. Unlike the myriad of existing visa programs, Johnson’s proposed program...

    Two GOP legislators are introducing legislation to let states annually import 500,000 foreign blue-collar workers and white-collar professionals to replace Americans who have fallen out of the workforce and into drug addiction. The American replacement bill is needed because companies can’t hire the employees they want amid the massive decline in the number of Americans who are seeking work, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson told an event hosted Wednesday by the CATO Institute. “Why can’t Wisconsin manufacturers, why can’t small businesses, find enough people to work?” Johnson asked during a speech in a Senate hearing room with supporters of the replacement...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 05/01/17 | Arthur Christopher Schaper
    A Kasich run may be just the thing to thoroughly demoralize the Big Business/Big Amnesty/Make Nice wing of the Republican National Committee As Presidential contender, all he wanted to do was make nice and preach hollow niceties all while abandoning conservative principles and pushing a smarmy liberalism that taxes us into oblivion and forcing higher spending. As governor of Ohio, he signed off on conservative reforms, but only because of a hard-core, supermajority Republican legislature. And it looks as if he wants to run for President .... again. Give me a break.
  • Trump Ends Obama’s African Ebola Amnesty

    In a refreshing move, the Trump administration is eliminating one of Barack Obama’s many outrageous amnesty initiatives, this one involving illegal immigrants from African countries affected by the Ebola virus a few years ago. The Ebola amnesty scandal got buried in the hoopla of the administration’s broad executive order protecting millions of illegal alien Mexicans and Central Americans, but it was just as alarming. Launched in 2014, the Ebola reprieve was issued separately—and quietly—via a Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian program that’s supposed to be short-term. Under the plan, the administration designated Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone for TPS...

    Senator Cory Gardner, a Republican representing Colorado, talked to constituents about big issues like border security, during his online town hall on Monday night. Gardner addressed the border wall and he said now is not the time to debate President Donald Trump’s border wall promise as a government shutdown looms in our nation’s capitol. “And I think it would be irresponsible to shut the government down over a conversation about border security,” said Gardner. Gardner says he does support border security and believes it’s important as the country moves forward.

    MEXICO CITY — The United States invasion of Mexico in 1846 inflicted a painful wound that, in the 170 years that followed, turned into a scar. Donald Trump has torn it open again. Among the many lies that he has constructed, none is more ridiculous than his attempt to contradict history by presenting the United States as a victim of Mexico, a country that supposedly steals jobs, imposes onerous treaties and sends its “bad hombres” across the border. To confront this fake history, some Mexicans are proposing to remind Mr. Trump exactly what country was the first victim of American...

    Speaker Paul Ryan is vowing that Congress won’t let the federal government shut down at the end of April and says lawmakers will pass a package that will fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year, through September. “We’re not gonna have a government shutdown,” the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview that aired Thursday with“CBS This Morning” host Norah O’Donnell. “The president doesn’t want to have a government shutdown. It’s funding the government from April 28 to September 30.” Congress must pass a new spending package by April 28 or the government will shut down. Last year,...

    The GOP establishment and their friends in the big business community are still trying to push amnesty for illegal immigrants, even after President Donald Trump’s victory. Breitbart’s Neil Munro reports: Business advocates who want to import more foreign consumers and more foreign workers are developing plans to counter President Donald Trump’s popular call for a merit-based immigration reform. The emerging strategy is to pair offers of minor concessions to Americans and Trump with demands for giveaways to business, including a bigger supply of low-wage workers and welfare-funded consumers. The immigration “pairing” strategy is being pushed by the industry-backed Business Policy...

    Business advocates who want to import more foreign consumers and more foreign workers are developing plans to counter President Donald Trump’s popular call for a merit-based immigration reform. The emerging strategy is to pair offers of minor concessions to Americans and Trump with demands for giveaways to business, including a bigger supply of low-wage workers and welfare-funded consumers. The immigration “pairing” strategy is being pushed by the industry-backed Business Policy Council, in cooperation with GOP Sen. Thom Tillis. The strategy collides with Trump’s emphasis on raising Americans’ wages via “merit-based immigration,” which is also backed by a new productivity-boosting immigration...

    Rubio, speaking to Fox, endorsed Trump’s points on law enforcement and making the immigration system more merit-based. After movements on those two fronts, Rubio suggested, “then you can do something very reasonable with the people who have been here a long time who are not gang bangers, who are not criminals, who are not a threat to public safety.” As a member of the bipartisan “Gang of Eight,” Rubio pushed a comprehensive immigration reform bill in 2013 that ultimately passed the Senate but not the House, though he later walked back his support for some of its provisions. Alongside other...

    President Trump may urge lawmakers to pass a compromise immigration reform bill during his speech to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night.. Trump told a group of television anchors he believes a major immigration bill is necessary but would require Republicans and Democrats to make significant trade-offs. "The time is right for an immigration bill as long as there is compromise on both sides," Trump said, according to CNN's Jake Tapper. Trump envisions a proposal that would allow some undocumented immigrants to live and work in the U.S. without fear of deportation, but would stop short of offering them...

    There are reports that President Trump might call for some kind of amnesty for illegal aliens who have not committed serious crimes in his address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday. The reports came after journalists attended a White House luncheon Tuesday and cited a “senior White House official” for the statement on the controversial issue. NBC’s Lester Holt and Chuck Todd are quoting a White House official as saying Trump may issue a call for immigration “compromise,” while Dara Lind of Vox contributed a full quote from the official, saying “The time is right for an immigration bill...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump wants to pass an immigration reform bill that could grant legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants living in the US. "The time is right for an immigration bill as long as there is compromise on both sides," Trump told reporters Tuesday at the White House. The President is eager to pass a compromise immigration bill in his first term that would stop short of granting a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants, but would allow undocumented immigrants who aren't serious or violent criminals to live, work and pay taxes in the US without fear...

    Univision anchor Jorge Ramos used the recent occasion of President Trump saying that “DREAMers” should be treated with a “heart” to advocate that all 11 million illegal aliens should be legalized while the president has both chambers of Congress under his party’s control. He made the comments on CNN with Anderson Cooper Thursday. “In the shadow of the expansion of immigration enforcement,” Cooper asked, “the Trump administration, they’re leaving in place the protections they say were put in place for ‘DREAMers’ and documented parents of U.S. citizens. What do you make of that decision? Does that, do you think that...

    MODESTO, Calif. (AP) — Speakers at a Vatican-sponsored conference in Northern California — including an archbishop — denounced President Donald Trump’s orders on immigration and travel and vowed to fight them at a meeting Friday. Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez said President Barack Obama deported a high number of people, but the harsh tone and cruelty coming out of the new administration was prompting mass fear and panic. “They’re playing with people’s emotions and toying with their lives and futures, and that is not right,” said Gomez, who noted his city has an estimated 1 million people who are living...

    This arsenal of firearms is among the dozens of weapons that have been taken off London’s streets during the Met’s latest gun amnesty. Since Monday 45 weapons have been surrendered across the capital as part of the Give Up Your Gun campaign, including shotguns, revolvers, rifles and handguns, Scotland Yard said. Detectives from the Met’s gang unit today urged anyone still in possession of an illegal firearm to hand it in before the amnesty ends on Sunday night.
