Business groups used their political influence to block the compromise reform plan in the Goodlatte bill, citing text which enforces significant cuts to the current inflow of legal immigrants.
In his January 30, State of the Union speech, Trump promised an “American First” immigration policy to replace the current donor-driven immigration policy.
Similarly, the 2018 polls show that GOP voters are far more concerned about migration — more properly, the economics of migration — than they are concerned about illegal migration and MS-13, taxes, or the return of Rep. Nancy Pelosi.
Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market — but the government provides green cards to roughly 1 million legal immigrants and temporary work-permits to roughly 3 million foreign workers.
The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration shifts wealth from young people towards older people by flooding the market with foreign labor.
“The concrete has been poured,” @RepMarkMeadows said of the compromise immigration bill. “You can still make handprints in it, you can still write your name in it. It is far from set.”

There is no single-party bill on immigration that can get enacted into law. If the last 10 years have taught us anything, it’s that. https://t.co/lwFIIOl1n3

4) There appear to be promises of a vote on the Goodlatte bill, which lacks permenant protections for Dreamers but include 45% cuts to LEGAL immigration, the biggest cuts since the racial quota laws of the 1920s.
