Populist conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham is warning President Trump against accepting a deal with the Republican establishment and Democrats that gives amnesty to the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action from Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
On Wednesday, Ingraham took to her radio show, the Laura Ingraham Show, to say that she was “extremely concerned” at the site of former Florida Gov. and pro-amnesty advocate Jeb Bush, as well as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce — also fans of amnesty for illegal aliens — heaping “lavish praise” on Trump following a White House meeting that centered around DACA amnesty. …
Ingraham said Trump could make a major dent in reforming the nation’s legal immigration system to benefit America’s working and middle class and raising U.S. wages by ending the process known as “chain migration,” whereby naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign nationals to the U.S.
The new immigrants, both legal and illegal, are not being brought into the melting pot. The melting pot will be spilled over. There will be no melting pot if we do not get control of both legal immigration through chain migration, which has been a nightmare for this country. Entire villages from India, Pakistan, Somalia, all across the globe — have been imported into the US. Entire family trees have been imported. They’re in Maine, they’re in Minnesota, they’re in North Carolina, they’re in Georgia — this is madness! No other country on the face of the planet has ever allowed this to happen. And I’m including Europe today, even with the mass migration of refugees. We went from nine million immigrants admitted in the first part of the 20th Century to 45 million in the second half. It’s all changed. And Trump has the chance to change this with chain migration.
