    President Trump Invites 23 Hill Leaders To Argue Amnesty on Tuesday

    President Donald Trump has invited 23 rival Hill politicians to a Tuesday meeting on the proposed amnesty, allowing him to play the consensus-building peacemaker while Democrats struggle to moderate their angry pro-amnesty base in an election year.


    The contentious, crowded event may allow Trump to repeat his January 4 tactic of inviting the media to watch him pressure GOP Senators to back his popular, wage-boostingimmigration reforms.

    Observers don’t expect any immediate agreements from the 11.30 AM meeting.
    “I don’t expect anything to come from this meeting — this is to show the public that they are talking,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies. She continued:

    It will take 60 votes to get something through the Senate, so this is still a giant game of chicken where the Democrats think they can make Trump swerve, and the President thinks that the Democrats are eventually going to have to swerve …


    Everyone is sill posturing … neither side has the numbers [in Congress] they need to win. Probably not until after [the] 2018 [elections], unless the Democratic leadership decides they are willing to accept a limited amnesty in exchange for the president’s proposals to save the people with DACA [work permits] from losing their status.

    Trump has made his preferences clear in a repeated announcement on the campaign trail and since October 8, when he released his popular immigration principles. Basically, he is willing to offer an amnesty to a small percentage of illegals if Democrats fund his border wall, agree to end the chain-migration and visa-lottery wage-cutting immigration programs and also revamp laws to help immigration enforcement along the border and in sanctuary cities.


    If Democrats refuse to compromise and insist that an amnesty is included in the 2018 budget due for completion January 19, Trump may be willing to ignore business demands for a quick fix and allow 1,000 DACA work permits to expire each day after March 5. That decision will ensure his popular immigration-reform agenda will be front-and-center in the November midterm election.

    But first, Trump has to fend off a stealthy campaign by establishment GOP figures — including Vice President Mike Pence — to persuade Trump to OK a giveaway amnesty deal before the 2018 election starts.


    The list of invitees includes advocates from at least five factions.


    The list includes GOP Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue who are pushing the RAISE Actwhich would raise Americans’ wages by halving the supply of imported immigrant labor. Trump supports their economic plan.


    Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley is also invited, allowing him to pith his SECURE Act, which includes the RAISE Act and a minor amnesty-style offer of three-year work permits for the roughly 670,000 younger illegals enrolled in the so-called DACA amnesty. Grassley chairs the Senate’s judiciary committee and has been supported by Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell.


    The invitees also include Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin. He is pushing a modified version of the huge and expensive DREAM Act for roughly 3 million illegals plus their future chain-immigration relatives. Durbin is modifying his amnesty by adding a package of token border-security measures. His group includes establishment GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, and Cory Gardner, plus Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet.

    Trump has also invited GOP Sens. Thom Tillis and James Lankford, who filed the SUCCEED Act amnesty. However, the two pro-amnesty GOP senators recently split from Durbin’s group, saying Durbin has refused to talk about popular border security upgrades sought by Trump.


    Sen. Bob Menendez is also invited, perhaps because he was a founding member of the 2013 “Gang of Eight” amnesty disaster which cost the Democrats nine seats and their Senate majority in 2014. Durbin, Graham, Bennet and Flake also were part of the gang, which would have shifted more of the nation’s annual income from workers to investors, according to the Congressional Budget Office.


    Two senior GOP House members are also invited. Judiciary chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte and homeland security chairman Mike McCaul have reportedly worked with several other GOP legislators to draft an ambitious plan that would pair some modest amnesty with extensive improvements, including an end to chain migration and the visa lottery. The measure is reportedly more ambitious that Grassley’s SECURE Act, and may be announced this week. If the Goodlatte/McCaul bill is passed by the House, it will set a standard for reform that is far more popular than the no-safeguards, wage-cutting DREAM Act amnesty offered by Durbin and the Democrats.


    The meeting includes House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. He is part of an immigration task force set up by House Speaker Paul Ryan. So far, this task force has failed to produce a draft, and in fact has split into at least two groups — the Goodlatte/McCaul group and a solo group of GOP Rep. Will Hurd. Hurd has joined with Democrat Pete Aguilar, a leader in the Democrats’ Hispanic Caucus to offer another variety of amnesty, but neither are on the list of guests.


    The meeting will include Democratic leaders Rep. Steny Hoyer and Rep. Bernie Thompson, who will champion the pro-migrant demands of the House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her pro-amnesty caucus. His task is complicated by the reality that Democrats in the House and Senate must fend off growing pressure from Latino and progressive groups to reject any compromise — even though the Democratic leaders seem to recognize that their amnesty agenda is deeply unpopular with the voters, who instead prefer economic policies that help Americans.

    However, many Democrats also think that many GOP legislators do not have the nerve to win the amnesty-or-not game of political chicken.

    But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting 1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.


    The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign labor, spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.


    The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment and job creation in many interior states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a new report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs and businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.


    Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a large percentage of the nation’s annual income has shifted to investors and away from employees.

    President Trump needs to prepare 2 Executive Orders.

    1. EO that acknowledges the rights of states and authority at their option and expense to enforce US immigration law without fear of reprisals, lawsuits or prosecutions for simply doing so. They would not have the ability to physically remove, ICE would need to do this, but they can find them, arrest them, hold magistrate pre-hearings to verify status and detain them awaiting formal DOJ deportation orders and ICE removals. This would cut loose our 800,000 state and local law enforcement officers to assist US with solving this problem to the benefit of the state and local communities, citizens, legal residents and taxpayers.

    2. EO that prohibits the issuance of Passports and SS numbers to children of illegal aliens.

    Also: Congress needs to draft a reconciliation bill that:

    1. makes individual tax cuts permanent
    2. eliminates long term capital gains tax for businesses and corporations
    2. makes E-Verify mandatory
    3. repeals the employer health care mandate

    The elimination of business and corporation long-term capital gains will grow GDP even further because presently in order to avoid these taxes, you must do a 1031 exchange within 90 days of a "like-kind" property which is very difficult and cumbersome, but to gain the tax advantage businesses and companies are forced to do it and by doing so they make bad decisions, being led by the nose of an available property that may not be the best-suited reinvestment for their needs at the time, if at all. Then they're stuck with it anyway. For example, you sell a long term investment property in one place, you want to invest again in another good project, but it may involve new construction, you're re-investing but not in a property, you are investing in materials, payroll, engineers, contractors. This should coun, but it doesn'tt. Furthermore, if you want to invest in companies, new start ups, new ventures, etc., you can't trade the sale of real estate for other types of investments like pension funds, 401 K's or even health insurance plans for your employees. The long-term capital gains tax is all screwed up and should be eliminated in its entirety for everyone including individuals, but to eliminate it now for businesses, all businesses, will at least result in enormous new investment, good investment, not rigged investment, that will trigger even more efficiencies and much more GDP growth so it will be a revenue generator.

    Making E-verify mandatory will encourage hiring of American Workers reducing not only unemployment and underemployment but poverty as well, this will result it enormous savings in food stamps, free school lunch program, CHIP and Medicaid. It will also grow wages and generate tax revenue.

    Eliminating the employer mandate will create many many jobs and do what all job creation does, grow the economy, reduce welfare spending and generate more tax revenue.

    Worth repeating:

    Congressman Dave Brat says a couple of bills are being introduced. He says not keeping promises is not good for upcoming elections. Importing 5 million people is not good for Americans.

    Giving DACA amnesty to 800,000 results in several million through chain migration.

    No, it's compliance with the REAL ID ACT. Unless your state driver's license complies, you'll be required to have your passport. There are 9 states whose driver's license don't comply with REAL ID ACT. They are: Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Montana, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Washington.

    For the record, I opposed the REAL ID ACT. I knew it wouldn't have anything to with illegal aliens or terrorists, it's just a bother and imposition on Americans.
