Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds over a reported proposal from the Trump administration to limit the number of immigrants who obtain legal status each year.
The Unites States currently admits over one million legal immigrants a year. Every year. A number that dwarfs all other nations in the world.
And that number does not include the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that flow across the southern border on a regular basis, accounting for as many as 12-20 million “undocumented immigrants” — as the liberal press opts to call illegal aliens — in the country.
Citing the prerequisite anonymous sources, NBC News reported on a plan proposed by White House senior adviser Stephen Miller that “would make it harder for legal immigrants to become citizens or get green cards if they have ever used a range of popular public welfare programs, including Obamacare.”
The proposal is expected in the coming weeks and if enacted, would not have to be approved by Congress, according to NBC News.
The plan, if true, would be consistent with President Trump’s call for a merit-based immigration that serves our national interest — a merit-based system is the law in places like Canada and Australia.
The open border crowd says the proposal would be unfair to non-citizens struggling to support their families and are dependent on government assistance, which would appear to support Trump’s stance.
NBC New included the story of a Haitian immigrant who entered the US illegally, who was “devastated” after recently being denied citizenship.
“I thought in this country everything was square and fair,” said the man who entered the country via a fake passport.
Such tug-at-the-heart stories are a staple in the news media.
The report proved to only add fodder to the already unhinged accusations that the Trump administration is racist and evil for putting the country’s best interests over the proliferation of Democratic Party party voters.
Here’s a sampling of the online onslaught targeting Stephen Miller:
Hate to make comparisons to the 1930s, but an aggressive interpretation that immigrants not be a "public charge" is exactly how the US govt blocked Jewish refugees from entering the US before WWII. Stephen Miller wants to do it again. 1/ https://t.co/FnSr5XnD8E

Don’t tell me that “all lives matter” or you believe in “Christian values” or you support “legal immigration” when Trump is adopting Stephen Miller’s new plan to block hardworking, taxpaying legal immigrants with green cards from getting their citizenship. https://t.co/7oGIZjUVND

If the worst happens and vile bigot Stephen Miller finds a way to go after legal immigrants, he won’t stop there. He will find a way to target anyone who’s not white via other discriminatory policies. https://t.co/HH1hqrWC2D

Legal Immigrants playing by the rules? It doesn’t matter.
This administratIon changes the rules. You may now not get citizenship & even lose your residency.
Trump’s administratIon does not want you here nor does it want you to vote

The great white-washing of America by Stephen Miller and white nationalists in office. This is not our country!
“it would be the biggest change to the legal immigration system in decades and estimate that more than 20 million immigrants could be affected” https://t.co/YVRrCoePc7
