    Chamber of Commerce struggling to find common ground with Trump on immigration

    by Sean Higgins | Aug 31, 2017, 2:33 PM

    The Chamber of Commerce admitted Thursday that it is struggling to find common ground with President Trump on immigration, and so far hasn't been able to find a "sweet spot" on the controversial issue.

    "We don't have a policy paper on immigration. It's a controversial area," Randy Johnson, the Chamber's senior vice president for labor and immigration policy, said at a press briefing Thursday. "We're trying to figure out where our interests align with the Trump administration."

    He added later that, "Immigration across the board, with some limitations, is a benefit to this country and that is the position of the Chamber." In contrast, the Trump administration has sought not only to stop illegal immigration but has backed a plan to cut legal immigration in half.

    Johnson said the Chamber, the national largest business trade association, was nevertheless "ready to engage with the Trump administration" on the subjects such a merit-based immigration. The chamber would not budge on family-based immigration though, he said.

    Johnson said he hoped the president did not end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy that allowed children who were brought to the country illegally to remain, though he said the legal principles behind the policy were shaky.

    "Let me just say on this point that if immigration wasn't a benefit to this country, you wouldn't have cities across this country such as St. Louis, Philadelphia, Detroit, and others actively reaching out to immigrants. The reason they are doing that is that these individuals, in the view of the people who run those cities, re-activate the economies in those cities. They are not seen as a burden on social welfare services," Johnson said.

    He said that Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, was expected to introduce legislation regarding the H1-B visa program for high-tech workers that the Chamber had been working with him on. "It is a program that needs to be revised with greater numbers," he said.

    The Chamber will be putting forward a major policy paper in September laying out its updated position on immigration in full, Johnson said.

    "Struggle" all you want, losers. The Chamber of Commerce is no longer an American institution, it's a globalist cabal. SHAME ON YOU! You need to be telling your members to hire Americans, to produce American made products and provide American-provded services and stop whining for more foreign workers that drain our coffers, harm American Workers, and bankrupt American taxpayers.

    I notice even the media no longer refers to the "Chamber of Commerce" as the United States Chamber of Commerce or American Chamber of Commerce.

    The Chamber of Commerce can't find "common ground" with American citizens. They represent the interests of others who do not think "America First."

    That's because they're a global cabal, have no interest in what's best for our country and citizens. All good men and women of the United States should terminate their membership in this anti-American orgie and just shut it down.

    The US Chamber of Commerce is a pro-illegal alien, open borders, buch of greedy globalists that need to shut the hell up about immigration policies.

    I hope President Trump and his administration has enough sense to tell the US Chamber of Commerce to go to hell in an hurry.

    A lot of those at the Chamber are responsible for the illegal alien invasion of America and all of the loss and death their cheap illegal workers have caused to American citizens. That should be sued for billions in a class action lawsuit from the victims of illegal immigration.

    Bad examples. These cities want to protect the illegals because they're large cities being run by liberals. St. Louis, Philadelphia, and Detroit all rate in the top 20% of the most liberal run cities in the U.S. with a population of over 250,000.
