    New GOP Senator Tom Cotton Says Immigration Must Help Americans

    Newly elected Sen. Tom Cotton used his first post-election appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press” to urge immigration reforms that help American get better wages — yet establishment media outlets ignored his populist call.

    “The president just lost an election in no small measure because wages for working families are declining and unemployment is still too high in too many places,” Cotton told the anchor, Chuck Todd.

    “And the first big action he took after the election was to make it easier for illegal immigrants to get jobs, not for working families to get jobs,” Cotton said about Obama’s Nov. 21 announcement to provide work-permits to 4 million illegals.

    In contrast, the new GOP Congress will try to pass law that begin “building a border fence or enforcing our interior immigration laws, and getting a handle on legal immigration that could actually drive down wages and increase unemployment,” he said.

    Cotton’s comments are novel, mostly because nearly all GOP politicians have ignored the impact of Obama’s amnesty on Americans’ wages and jobs. Instead, GOP leaders, such as House Speaker John Boehner, criticize the amnesty as bad for bipartisan cooperation, as a violation of the law-making process and of the Constitution, and an an obstacle to passage of a business-friendly immigration rewrite.

    Cotton’s populist comments also are important because he beat the Democratic incumbent with a populist message on jobs and immigration. The successful GOP candidate in Georgia, David Perdue, also used a similar message.
