Recently, the White House leaked its planned Immigration Armageddon to USA Today. Obama’s Plan will result in a Third World America in 20 years and rewards illegal aliens who have broken the law, something that will benefit democrats politically, even if it destroys America in the long term.
I was wondering why the proposals of the Immigration Commission chaired by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, D-Texas, in 1995 have never been given serious consideration. Jordon’s Commission Report called for:
“Credible, coherent immigrant and immigration policy” and a “credible, efficient naturalization process,” including the following:
Scale back of family “chain-migration” by implementing a prioritization of family relationships to determine who will be admitted through family-based immigration. Spouses and minor children of US citizens would continue to be admitted as first priority;
Elimination of other family-based admission categories, including: Adult, unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens; adult, married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens; adult, unmarried sons and daughters of legal permanent residents; and siblings of U.S. citizens.
Focus on the admission of highly-skilled individuals to support the national interest by bringing to the U.S. individuals whose skills would benefit our society. Recommended the elimination of the admission of unskilled workers and elimination of the diversity visa lottery;
Immigration admissions level of 550,000 per year, to be divided as follows: Nuclear family immigration 400,000; skill-based immigration 100,000; refugee resettlement 50,000.
Given the current state of our economy, high unemployment of American Citizens and stress on government services can anyone logically argue for increased immigration?
