President Trump is supporting a bill by Senators Cotton and Perdue that will make life better for millions of working (and unemployed) Americans. The RAISE Act will impose limits on low-skilled immigration into the US which will result in wage rises for America workers.
But the big thing that is getting Liberals wound up is the part of the bill that states migrants will not be able to claim any Welfare for five years after arrival! It seeks to ensure that only those that can support themselves come to the country and that they have a proficiency with the English language.
It is ridiculous that this policy is causing outrage. If someone comes to America with no money, no skills, and no English, why should the American taxpayer fund them? Be aware…This does NOT impact refugees or Asylum seekers…Just economic migrants. The Left will try to tell you of people fleeing war and poverty, and how this bill will leave them destitute, starving and unsafe. DON”T BELIEVE THE LIES! It does not impact refugees AT ALL!
The MSM will try and twist this policy into a mass of confusion with “sob stories”, but it actually only affects those who are migrating for economic purposes. No one else.
President Trump is about to end the longstanding abuse of the American welfare system and ban migrants from getting free money and handouts for five years. The immigration rules will prohibit migrants from coming to the country and taking advantage of free American welfare money right away. It will slow down, or stop, chain migration while protecting American workers and potentially saving taxpayers money.
What used to happen is that people would migrate to America and just live on the free money they received. That’s called welfare abuse. America is open to migrants, but perhaps we don’t want migrants who can’t fend for themselves. Maybe it’s better if people who are self-sufficient migrate to the country so that we can reduce the amount of citizens living off the system.
President Trump wants to introduce a merit-based Green card system in which migrants compete for Visas. Migrants can earn points for themselves by learning to speak English, gaining job training or job offers, or doing something else that is considered a benefit to the America. The idea seems to be that in order for America to grant Visas or citizenship, the migrant has to give something back to the country. It’s as though the government wants to stop people coming to America and living off the system and would prefer people coming to the country to be contributors. Do something for America and America will do something for you.
Migrants to those countries must compete for a limited number of visas by gaining points for English proficiency, competitive training, a job offer or another major achievement that benefits the host country.
The concept, which is modeled after similar programs from Australia and Canada, is taking harsh criticism from activists. It’s like they want an open border policy where everyone gets free welfare money, but that would just be the downfall of America. If we observe what’s happening in Germany, with Merkel’s “come on in” policy, then we see a mass increase in horrible crimes like gang rape. Do we want mass amounts of migrant gang rape in America? There’s already enough trouble with crime in sanctuary cities that protect illegal immigrant criminals. Those folks should be deported because of their bad behavior and often violent crimes they commit on American people and even other immigrants.
If America prevents immigrants from getting free benefits for five years, then that makes people think twice about coming here. If a family who thinks about crossing the border to start a new life knows that they cannot live for free, then they may not come at all. If they have possible jobs lined up and will be almost instantly integrating successfully with society, then that’s a great match. America is the land of the free, but not the land of the free money.
