Thank goodness someone is closing down the free-for all that’s been happening with immigration for way too long!
Did you know we let 50k “diversity lottery” winners come to America every year…just because some government bureaucrat decided we needed more diversity. Oy vey! This lottery has gotten to be scam whereby favored people are given preference to immigrate. It needs to end NOW!
Sen. Tom Cotton and Georgia Sen. David Perdue have started taking steps to crack down on legal immigration, a focus shared by the Trump administration. They’ll formally propose legislation on the matter as soon as today. The details:
1.Eliminates multiple avenues for U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor family members for green cards.
•Chain migration is out of control! It means a family comes and then is allowed to bring other family members increasing the immigration numbers tremendously! This must end!
2. Gets rid of the diversity visa lottery, which allots 50k visas per year for citizens of countries with low levels of immigration to the U.S.
3. Restricts the number of refugees allowed into the country to 50k annually — similar to rates outlined in Trump’s travel ban.
•We believe 50k is still way too high!
4. If approved, the number of legal immigrants allowed into the U.S. under the bill would plummet by 40% in the first year and by 50% over the next 10 years, according to Cotton’s aides.
