I was very pleased to see President Trump’s list of immigration principles and I support each and every one. Foremost among these principles are mandating use of the E-Verify system and ending the chain migration.
The White House has released a set of immigration principles that would increase border security, strengthen interior enforcement, including a requirement for all employers to use E-Verify, and reform the current green card system, including an end to chain migration.
While I appreciate your 70-point immigration proposal, I have to say I am still opposed to any amnesty for Dreamers or anyone else currently here illegally.
Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue have introduced a new version of the RAISE Act that would protect American workers and their wages from the massive influx of low-skilled immigration. I urge you to support American workers by supporting this legislation!
I urge you to support the new RAISE Act introduced by Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue. Recent polling has found that 72% of American voters support a key element of their bill which would eliminate extended family immigration.
I expect you to oppose the SUCCEED Act any effort to trade amnesty for immigration enforcement — it’s simply not enough and won’t stop illegal immigration!
I, along with the vast majority of your constituents, oppose the DREAM Act amnesty. Please oppose this legislation offered by Senators Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin.
I was concerned by your recent statements to the Economist where you said that you did not want to reduce legal immigration levels. These statements contradict your Joint Address to Congress when you said, “Protecting our workers also means reforming our system of legal immigration. The current, outdated system depresses wages for our poorest workers, and puts great pressure on taxpayers.”
Sen. Cotton is introducing legislation, the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, that would end chain migration and the visa lottery. Most immigrants who come through these two categories are lower-skilled and compete for jobs with America’s most vulnerable workers. Please support American workers and their wages by cosponsoring this bill.
America’s current immigration levels are far too high. Please work to reduce current immigration levels to fall in line with traditional levels.
