I don't know, we're still human and rebellion is in our nature. In other words, trends are made to be broken. It really depends on who's actually running, but who knows, maybe Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
We need to reduce legal immigration substantially. We are importing poverty and surplus labor. Our immigration needs must have some correlation with our job and skill requirements. That is not the case now.
(1) We have a problem with 12-20 million undocumented residents, that we've yet to solve, (2) now we have tens of thousands of unaccompanied children claiming to be refugees pouring over our border, and (3) you're talking about limiting the number of legal immigrants? That's where you lose me. We'll be lucky to deal with #1 and #2, if we could fix all three at once that would be great, but I don't think that's going to happen.
I provided you with multiple links and charts. Did you even bother to look at them?
Yes, I looked over the links and charts. Again, thanks for adding to the discussion. However, I don't necessarily buy all of those stats, for example, what is cited as welfare really isn't, at least not in the sense of cash and housing assistance. In other words, accepting Medicaid and Food Stamps, which is the bulk of what the authors call welfare, doesn't imply that these are non-working deadbeats, it's more an indication to me of how un-affordable health insurance still is in spite of Obamacare, and how easy government policy has made it to get food stamps (even encouraging people to apply). And, identifying non-citizens with political parties is at best speculative, the same kind of hype I was talking about, since they are not even eligible to vote.
We have two wings of the same party. There is a serious disconnect between our political and corporate elites and the people. Sessions is making a case for the Reps to ditch the corporate elites and direct their efforts to the American worker who has been abandoned by both parties.
That works for me, as long as small business owners are still considered American workers, and not everyone else's whipping boy.
