LA Times: White House Cucks On Legal Immigration Cuts

So, the Senate is FINALLY about to take up its free-wheeling amnesty debate TOMORROW, and just in time the White House is signaling it is ready to cuck on legal immigration cuts:

“As the Senate prepares to begin a free-wheeling debate over immigration next week, White House officials have begun floating a possible compromise idea — a pledge to maintain legal immigration at current levels, about 1.1 million people a year, for more than a decade. …

But a White House official said Saturday that the Trump administration is working with allies in the Senate on a proposal that would create a path to citizenship for an estimated 1.8 million people who were brought to the country illegally as children, and that would clear the backlog of nearly 4 million sponsored relatives who currently are waiting for green cards.

The combined effort, officials said, would effectively make up for the cuts in other immigration categories for about 13 years, the official said. After that, if Congress takes no additional action to add or expand visa categories, the total number of people allowed to resettle in the U.S. each year likely would decline by hundreds of thousands. …

However, the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, an evangelical Christian pastor based in Sacramento who is president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, said he’s been assured repeatedly by the White House that overall legal immigration levels would not be cut under Trump’s plan.

“That number is not being played with at all whatsoever,” said Rodriguez, one of the Latino conservatives who attended the hour-long meeting Tuesday with Kelly and Nielsen. …

Lawmakers are looking at other ways to keep legal immigration steady, including increasing skills-based immigration categories.

One possibility would be to resurrect a proposal made by Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah) during an immigration reform push in 2013 that ultimately failed. It would have more than tripled the number of work visas for foreign tech workers to about 180,000 per year.”

Yep.

Just as I thought, the Koch Brothers have been yanking the chain of their Republican puppets in the Senate to oppose “arbitrary” cuts to legal immigration, and strangely the debate has shifted from “ending chain migration” to changing the composition of legal immigration so that more high-skilled workers can take the place of Mexican peons along the lines that Orrin Hatch has proposed.

In other news, Paul Ryan is now saying he will bring an immigration bill to the floor of the House. In theory, any amnesty bill that passed the Senate could be stopped in the House like the Gang of 6 amnesty because it wouldn’t be brought to the floor. Bringing an amnesty bill to the House will floor will give the Democrats and Koch Brothers Caucus in the House the chance to vote for it.

  1. THE MORE YOU CLEAR THE BACK LOG, THE MORE ALIENS WILL INVADE.
    THIRD MOST POPULOUS NATION ON EARTH MUST BAN IMMIGRATION.

    These alienists will tell you that we must increase visas to “clear the back log”. It is like saying we must break the windows of the store as there is a long line of burglars at the door.

    As soon as you increase the visas to reduce the backlog, more aliens will invade, as they realize that the wait is not so long any more.

    There is only one solution to this cancer of immigration–ban it completely.
    Declare alienism as a crime against humanity.

      • ??????…. Or we as white American citizens the rightful heirs and rulers of this country could make it so fuckin miserable they willingly leave. We don’t have to beg the government to change policies if we band and stand together we can make it where it’s safer and better in their own country hence no immigration no immigration problem. We the people are the power. We the white people are the conquers. Bypass government if the government is working against the best interest of our nation.

  2. When treason prospers, nobody calls it treason.
    Any group who desires to overthrow the government are no more treacherous than the government themselves.
    May every politician, SLPC and ADL member die by a thousand furnaces.
    Most Western governments have committed plenty of treason.

  3. all of which I and other non-Trumpaholics predicted long, long ago. To repeat:

    Trumpenthal’s ultimate position on non-White invasives was/is predictable from his own casino/hotel/golf course hiring patterns:

    lower level: mestizos, including thousands of illegals
    middle management: .indian H1b streetshitters
    upper echelon: Jews

    and so it has come to pass. shabbatz goy Trumpenthal is the most anti-White President in ‘Murkan history.

  4. If Trump cucks this way, there is potential for an explosion in legal immigration, as the 1.1 million a yr figure is maintained, and supplemented by the 4 millions brought in to clear the backlog. And no one could seriously think that any “future cuts” written into law would actually survive…into the future, right?
