Senator David Perdue: President Trump Driving Consensus To Fix Our Legal Immigration System
“My personal focus continues to be on how we eliminate chain migration, which is a fundamental flaw in our current immigration policy”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) made the following comments after the White House meeting on immigration today:
“President Trump, being an outsider and business guy, is driving consensus between Republicans and Democrats to fix our legal immigration system. Today’s White House meeting was to define the scope of this negotiation to include four items: solving the DACA situation, addressing border security, ending chain migration, and eliminating the outdated visa lottery. President Trump is trying to instill a sense of urgency to get something done on immigration, but this topic should not be part of funding the federal government. My personal focus continues to be on how we eliminate chain migration, which is a fundamental flaw in our current immigration policy. If any conversation about DACA is being held without that consideration, it is not going to go anywhere in the United States Senate. The first thing a DACA recipient will do if given permanent status is use chain migration laws to sponsor those who violated the law originally. Ending chain migration and eliminating the outdated visa lottery program is in our national security and economic interest. President Trump has done a great job making sure this remains a top priority in any immigration discussion.”
DACA and US Citizenship
American citizenship should be earned not awarded for simply being here. That’s what laws are for, to give applicants a fair shot at getting in. There is a pathway to citizenship available for those outsiders who apply. Yes, it’s hard and lengthly but, so what? On top of that, Democrats defending Obama’s DACA Executive Order is unconscionable because it’s not law, but opinion only, and that’s the argument Democrats want to hang their hats on, Illegals over Americans.
So far, the really stupid visa programs initiated under a Democrat regime and supported by “Compassionate Conservatives,” who do not want to be smeared as racists or bigots, have swept aside the rule of law, in the name of “fairness.” America must atone for its undeserved prosperity by welcoming in the worlds great flood of unwashed, without conditions. Whoa!
The Democrats unrestricted illegal invasion program has met strong resistance in the form of Donald Trump who has said “No more!” meaning the unfettered importation of third world denizens from S__thole countries will end. For the present America is faced with solving the problem of the many Dreamers who arrived here years ago when our guard was down.
Here’s what I would accept concerning any DACA plan that attempts to legalizes the 800,000 “Dreamers,” kids who were brought here illegally by their criminal, gate crashing parents. Understandably they had no choice but like kidnap victims, they must be returned to their home country.
Democrats cite the unchanging DACA numbers at 800,000 because that’s how many Dreamers, more or less, who actually signed up for Obama’s ‘amnesty’ program. There is in fact over three million, but for purposes of negotiations, let’s stick with the Democrats number of 800,000, most of whom have matriculated into adulthood.
First, eliminate, out of hand, those who have failed to learn English, those with MS-13 and other gang affiliations, and any “dreamer” with one or more felony or firearms convictions. A few have matriculated through college and are employed in good jobs. Save them. Some have found low level jobs, started families and avoided accumulating police records. Save them too. Of the 800,000, only around 900 have entered military service on the promised path to citizenship. Save them. Chain migration must be eliminate. Assimilation does not occur when old family units are attached to and influence, accepted immigrants.
Democrats whine about Trump wanting to spend a one time cost of $18 billion to build a wall but ignore the annual $99 Billion taxpayers cost to cloth, feed, house, educate and provide medical care to the flood of illegals spreading over our country. The Visa program, the one that allows entry on a lottery system, has proven deadly and must not even be considered in negotiations.
Some national figures should be considered in this negotiation as well. 97% of immigrants in the Dreamers grouping identify themselves as Hispanic. By the fourth generation that number falls to 50%. Only 7% describe themselves as Americans, but only 56%, in the third generation, believe they are Americans. Even the use of Spanish slowly declines. The Democrats have abandoned Americas working class base to chase what they choose to believe is a racial group in harmony with their dream of a socialist state, when what they were actually chasing is the momentum of unlimited migration.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (24Jan18)
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) made the following statement after Senate Democrats agreed to end the Schumer Shutdown and reopen the federal government:
“It is ridiculous that we were ever in the Schumer Shutdown in the first place. I’m glad to see that Senate Democrats came to their senses and stopped this nonsense. It is frustrating that this is the same proposal that was offered to them days ago before they decided to shut down the government over immigration. Senate Democrats took their political stunt a step too far since a majority of Americans support funding the federal government over continuing the DACA program. Clearly, Congress’ budget process is a complete failure. It has only worked four times in the past 43 years, and given the current political dynamics it will never work. Tying important policy decisions to the funding process is the reason we end up in these damaging situations. It’s time Congress gets serious about reworking the way we fund the federal government. That way we can start tackling other big ticket items such as fixing our immigration system and beginning to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure.”
Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
What happened? Date line, Monday 22 Jan 2018: Inexplicably, Senate minority leader Chuckie Schemer rallied the Senate Democrats to support the Government funding bill. Suddenly there was a virtual stampede of Democrat Senators to vote with Republicans to send the CR bill to Trumps desk to continue the funding the US Government into March. “Get outta the way!”
The issue of course was based firmly in the belief by the Democrats geriatric leadership that the Republicans would flinch yet again and cave in to their demands, on top of the needs of the country, that illegal intruders (they can’t be immigrants if they’re illegal) be awarded amnesty simply because their parents dragged them across a border from their miserable countries into the United States so they could make America a miserable country too.
Chuckie Schumer completely lost sight of the Constitution and the rule of law that protects a governments sovereignty. It must have been Schumer’s thinking that if Americans won’t vote for Democrats, he’ll import people who will so, he wants to load up the voter rolls with the third world’s great unwashed and sought to do so by way of challenging Trump with an illegal immigrant showdown over government funding. Oops!
When it quickly became apparent that closing down government because Democrats demand that tax payers support 800,000 undocumented illegal invaders under such innocent sounding terms as DACA and CHIP, over the lawful funding of legal Americans like military soldiers, social security recipients, and etc., then their argument quickly loses its appeal.
Where did the 800,000 number that Democrats want amnesty for, come from? That’s essentially the number of illegals, aka: “Dreamers” who signed up for Obama’s amnesty program at its beginning. The actual number is closer to four million but, we’re told to Ignore the numbers, they are simple children brought here by their illegal invader parents and they must be helped. Democrats also ignore the fact that most of those “Dreamers” are now adults and the percentage who have not assimilated into becoming American’s, learn English and find employment is jaw dropping.
For example, the renegade State of California has now announced plans to allow illegals intruders who claim sanctuary and are entitled to a California drivers license and automatic registration on the voters rolls as well. What could go wrong here? I’ll tell you what’s wrong with that. Apart from neutralizing my legitimate vote, every state in the union has drivers license reciprocity with every other state in the union, including Canada and Mexico.
If California demeans the validity of their drivers licenses by the artifact of enfranchisement of illegal invaders, then the value of that California drivers license is demand beyond its borders. Automatically, they become unreliable and any of the forty nine other states plus Canada and Mexico, do not have to recognize that license. Tickets will be issued, drivers jailed, and cars impounded, all for lack of legitimate ID’s. Californians will be unable to drive beyond the borders of their state anymore. Who are these stupid people who think up these stupid ideas and expect the rest of America to accept them too?
Schumer overplayed his hand or lost his nerve and he caved. A first! The extreme Left of the Democrat party are now in a frenzy against Schumer’s leadership. That’s all well and good.
The motto is :”If you want to make America a S__thole country, vote Democrat!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (23Jan18)
Exactly What is a “S___hole” Country?
I don’t really care that Trump asked why America was taking in millions of people from third world “S___hole countries,” and less people from European nations. He said Norway but he meant all of Europe. I don’t care because he said exactly what I think, indeed what many of us think. His choice of a descriptive adjective could probably have been better said but, really, it doesn’t matter because he’s right and we know it.
We are in fact overrun with third world creatures who don’t want to be American’s, they simply want to be in America, plant their culture, demand we recognize their language and, in the case of Muslims, accept their religion while they stand back daring anybody to challenge them because that would make us Americans, of Europeans origins, the real “racists” that Nancy Pelosi tells us we are.
Wasn’t Trump’s comment made in a closed door session with other legislatures, including Democrats? Shocked, they couldn’t wait until the meeting was over to rush out and tell the world that Trump’s was a ’racist’ and therefore it was necessary to return Democrats to power, because Trump doesn’t care for the little guys. The Democrats and their media cohorts, went berserk because of Trump’s alleged gaff, to reset our thinking to the socialist agenda and the new world order, a paradise without Trump or conservatives. And that’s what’s this is all about, destroying Trump and stem the damage he is doing to them.
I remind Democrats of the existing record collected over the years by audio and video tapes of politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, expressing their personal animus towards peoples who contribute nothing but drain the taxpayer coffers. It’s a program specifically designed to keep Democrats in power, filling the voter rolls with life victims sure to vote for the hand that feeds them.
Does anyone not remember Bill Clinton, referring to Presidential candidate Barack Obama, say: “in the past that guy would have been bringing us coffee?” Didn’t Marxist Senator Dick Durbin, call American soldiers just like Nazi’s, after the Iraq war ended?
The world is full of S__t hole countries. It can’t be denied. The attacked photograph is of Haiti. I’ve lived and worked in countries like these in my career. The one thing everyone of these places had in common was they were either war torn, in the process of rebuilding, or subjugated by Progressive regimes. These are people without hope so why should they even waste their energy trying to clean up the tons of cheap plastic and rubber deritius of failed economies.
Totalitarianism is the end product of Socialism. It comes when people finally realize that socialism is not providing for them as we see happening in Venezuela, Cuba, and Zimbabwe just to name three. Capitalism is the only driving force of economic prosperity left for mankind and the Democrats want none of it. Their best advocate is the demented Durbin and the loony Nancy Pelosi who reportedly said: “The people are too stupid to understand the global plan”
My first experience abroad was South Korea ten years after the Korean War. It was an armed military camp left in place by an armistice to protect South Korea and its defenders. Then, it perfectly fit Trumps description. Now I stand back in admiration as that country has become an asian economic powerhouse, even selling excellent motor cars here and around the world. The infrastructure I experienced, dirt roads, muddy ditches, trash heaps, broken military equipment not yet cleaned up from the earlier period, are all gone now.
Trump’s poor choice of words in a closed door session with Democrats should be a lesson for all. Do not include democrats in your parlays especially when they have no power. It was taken away from them so why should they expect to have influence on America’s future? Bipartisanship is an old meme, now championed for Republicans by John Kasich who desperately wants to become President. He’s telling us, in essence, that he’s willing to give in to the Democrats socialist agenda.
Trump’s decision to deny the DACA compromise presented to him by the bipartisan group of three Republicans and three Democrats, is a perfect example of how a weak president could easily fall in line with the Democrats socialist agenda, as Kasich surly would, by telling us it advances hope for mankind despite the rule of law saying otherwise. The end result is that America would soon be over run by the denizens of third world S__t holes countries, quickly turning America into one too. Trump is right!.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (14Jan18)
Senator David Perdue Discusses Immigration Latest On Fox News & ABC
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Trish Regan on Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures and George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week about recent meetings at the White House to fix the legal immigration system.
Highlights from Sunday Morning Futures
Negotiating A Deal: “The President has been very clear that any solution to DACA must include border security, including the wall, an end to chain migration, and an end to the visa lottery. Last week, we had two meetings at the White House. President Trump is very engaged on this issue, just like he was on tax. I’m hopeful we can get symmetry in this negotiation. In my business experience, that’s how you get to a deal and I still think there is a possibility to do that.”
Double Talk From Democrats: “It’s a gross distraction from the issue. Senators Schumer and Durbin both talked about ending parts of chain migration on the Senate floor. We’re doing things that the Democrats have voted for and have supported in the past. Under Bill Clinton in the 90s, we had a Presidential Commission actually recommend limiting chain migration and recommend moving to a merit-based immigration system based on who you are and not where you are from. The problem now is politics. That’s what’s so frustrating to all of us.”
Focusing The Scope: “Congress has failed three times in the last 11 years to fix the immigration system because they’ve been too comprehensive and tried to solve the legal problem, the temporary work visa problem, and the illegal immigration problem at the same time. What we’re doing now is limiting this debate to just the legal immigration system and I believe we can get to a solution.”
President’s Agenda Is Working: “If this were any other president getting the results that we’re getting right now in the economy, we would be crowing about the results. Two million new jobs created last year, 860 rules and regulations pulled back, 500 bureaucrats fired at the VA for non-performance, 300 fired in the Department of Education, consumer confidence is at a 17-year high, CEO confidence is at a 20-year high, 123 companies decided to give year-end bonuses because of our action on tax. This economy is beginning to move and what we have to do now is focus on immigration, infrastructure, and trade to keep moving the economy forward.”
Responding To Hawaii: “I don’t know the details of that yet, but it just heightens the fact that somebody made a mistake somewhere. As a member of the Armed Services Committee, I can assure you that we’ll get to the bottom of that.”
Highlights from This Week
Solving DACA: “The problem is Washington career politicians who just want to pander to their base. What we have right now is a gross misrepresentation of a meeting from Thursday. Two days earlier, the President held an hour-long open meeting with the media where Democrats and Republicans from both the House and Senate debated the issue. We want to solve the DACA problem. We want border security with a wall. We want to end chain migration and the visa lottery. That’s the scope we all agreed on Tuesday.”
Record Of Misrepresenting: “In 2013, Senator Durbin made the same allegation against a Republican leader in a meeting with President Obama, saying he chewed out the president and that this Republican leader was so disrespectful to President Obama they couldn’t even have the meeting. That’s what he said that in 2013. Later that day, President Obama’s own press secretary came out and said, ‘it did not happen.’ This is about a gross misrepresentation, and it’s not the first time.”
Current Negotiation Parameters: “We’re focusing on four things. The President has been consistent all along about what he wants in an immigration deal. I have been consistent. Senator Cotton has been consistent. Any deal on DACA has to include border security, including a wall, and the end to chain migration. That’s been consistent for the past year.”
9th Congressional district Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) spoke exclusively to FYNTV on Friday’s edition of Good Morning From the Office. Collins spoke on a multitude of issues, from the executive actions regarding Obamacare, to his personal crusade for adequate internet service and competition in rural Northeast Georgia. However, his remarks regarding tax reform were quite revealing. According to Collins, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has informed House members that he will keep the House in session, if necessary, throughout the Christmas recess in order to pass tax reform.
The tax question is asked around the 11:00 minute mark of the FULL INTERVIEW below.
BKP: From the House side, will we get tax reform?
Rep. Collins: Yes. I feel very comfortable, in fact, it is the top priority for us in leadership, and the speaker. In fact, the speaker put us on notice yesterday (Thursday) that he would keep us through Christmas or any other holiday to make sure it gets done this year. It was very disturbing to hear some members of the Senate saying “Well, we gotta negotiate, it may be the first of the year” No. It’s time to get behind the American people, time to get behind the President and pass tax reform. It’s way past due.
