Earlier: Trump Needs To Fire Mick Mulvaney, Get Back To 2016 Immigration Plan

Mick Mulvaney, President Trump’s acting chief of staff, says the White House is “desperate” for more immigrants. “We are running out of people to fuel the economic growth that we’ve had in our nation over the last four years. We need more immigrants,” he told an English audience recently [Mulvaney says U.S. is ‘desperate’ for more legal immigrants, by Nick Miroff and Josh Dawsey, The Washington Post, February 20, 2020]. It’s possible Mulvaney, a long-time immigration booster, was just expressing his own opinion. But Trump himself recently said he wants more foreign workers. With Jared Kushner’s comprehensive immigration plan stalled, and the Democrat presidential candidates spiraling into Open Borders lunacy, cheap labor donorists are swooping in to fill the vacuum.

Thus POLITICO just reported that the White House is working on a guest worker expansion. The plan could either create new guest worker categories and/or prolong the time a migrant can stay on a temporary guest worker visa. The plan may even grant Amnesty to the “DREAMers” —the nearly one million illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as minors who were legalized under Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The goal is to give big business more cheap foreign labor....

The Kushner plan tried to please both immigration patriots and big business, yet both reject it. Immigration patriots rightly note it doesn’t reduce immigration....

More recently, the administration cut mandatory e-Verify—an original component of the plan—from the 600-page bill it wishes to introduce in Congress. The latest Trump budget also withdrew its request for mandatory e-Verify, in contrast the previous two budgets. Jessica Vaughn, a policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, says these moves demonstrate “a takeover of the president’s immigration agenda by the special interests who benefit from illegal immigration.” [Trump's retreat on E-Verify called special interest 'takeover' of immigration agenda, by Stephen Dinan, The Washington Times, February 12, 2020]....

Trump occasionally muses about scrapping birthright citizenship, His administration is trying to cut down on birth tourism, a practice enabled by birthright citizenship. But there’s no indication the guest worker plan will include this provision...

The president needs to stop listening to greedy businessmen and listen to his base. They don’t want more foreign workers—they want to put Americans first.
