I was heartened by the results of a new poll, which found that likely American voters overwhelmingly want to reform our immigration system to serve the national interest and work for the American people by ending Chain Migration.
The DACA amnesty “compromise” proposed by Sens. Durbin, Graham, and Flake is no compromise at all! It is simply a mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, with only token enforcement elements. To be specific, this mass amnesty proposal does not:
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released its report on Sens. Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin’s S. 1615, the DREAM Act. The report shows that their legislation would add $26 billion to the deficit over a ten year period. According to the CBO:

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.
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!
Please pass legislation that would require all employers to use E-Verify. Mandating E-Verify will prevent illegal aliens from finding jobs and help Americans get back to work.
