Comprehensive immigration reform has been tried by the U.S. Congress in various forms over the last 12 years with no success.

With the nation so divided ideologically and politically there has been and there is little hope of any comprehensive immigration reform.

Republicans, conservatives, and Independents want a new accountable immigration policy while Democrats prefer the present chaos of the status quo.

President Donald Trump in his first address to Congress on Feb. 28, 2017 offered to the deeply divided and cantankerous Congress a new idea about immigration control.

The present out of control immigration process needs to be corrected and revitalized in large part to overcome the chaos created by Obama’s executive orders, incoherent policies, and weak border control.

The president proposed a merit-based immigration policy as exemplified by the immigration policies  of Australia and Canada.

He opined, "It is a basic principle that those seeking to enter a country ought to be able to support themselves financially." President Trump followed this with the obvious, that the uneducated, the financially destitute, and the unskilled immigrants strain "the very public resources that our poorest citizens rely upon."

He went on to cite the National Academy of Science that America’s current immigration system costs the taxpayers many millions of dollars each year

As expected, the Democrats had knee-jerk reactions of opposition to this idea, as well as to most everything the president proposed. It appeared that his appeal to the Democrats for bipartisan support on most of his proposals is not dead in the water.

His proposals will be attacked in a warlike manner.

It must be remembered that the Democratic Congress and a Democratic president enacted the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 (INA).

The Democrats reversed decades of national origin immigration policy for a Third World oriented immigration deluge.

American immigration policy was changed with little care about the consequences.

Nearly nine out of every 10 immigrants now come from non-European countries.

The INA legislation also emphasized "family unity" meaning an immigrant could easily bring many "family" members no matter how remotely related to the Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) or naturalized citizen. This is known as "chain migration."

The civil rights icon, Barbara Jordan (1936-1996) chaired a bipartisan Commission on Immigration Reform which was part of the Immigration Act of 1990. The Commission’s final report of 1997 recommended:

  •  A scaled back of family chain migration.
  • Recognized foreign born workers educational levels declined since 1965 and that Hispanic workers were paid less because they were unskilled, noted immigrants were the chief beneficiaries of welfare, illegal immigration was a problem therefore border management should be enhanced, speeding up removal of apprehended illegal aliens, enforce workplace inspections to determine if illegal aliens are employed, and create a larger guest worker program.

Barbara Jordan was a former Democratic Congresswoman and a voice of reason for civility, law, and order.

The Commission report was ignored by her fellow Democrats because it was contra to the Democratic orthodoxy and the immigrant victimization myth.

Recently, House Republicans have introduced "incremental" rather than "comprehensive" immigration reform bills to begin ending the present immigration chaos.

Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ariz., and David Perdue, R-Ga., have proposed incremental immigration legislation in the Senate.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., introduced incremental immigration in the House.

The Congressional Republicans are trying to answer the American people’s cry for responsible immigration laws.

The Democrats have taken a position that every effort must be made to destroy all Republican proposed legislation regardless of the validity of the legislation.

Many Democrats are solely and singularly committed to an open borders immigration policy, regardless of financial, and national security costs.

With savage ferocity and no holds barred mentality, congressional Democrats attack the legislative proposals of the president and Republican legislators — often in personal manner.

Today, to combat revelations of Obama miscues, to deny the reality of the election results, and to delegitimize Trump’s election, the Democrats created a Russian red herring.

This fabrication about Republican officials conspiring with Russian officials is meant to imply an evil or un-American purpose by Republicans. With an abetting newsmedia, the Democrats created specious stories of GOP wrongdoing — absent credible proof.

The truth is that any Republican legislation dealing with immigration, job creation, health care, taxation, national security, or financial stability faces unprincipled Democratic attacks.

The following questions arise:

  • Will Democrats refuse to act like responsible legislators or will they be blind obstructionists?
  • Are the Soros-controlled Democrats seeking destruction of American democracy?

Meanwhile most Americans see political discourse sink to feckless levels, damaging the American form of government, the American psyche, and American self-esteem.

Attempts to drain the swamp can’t compete with the alligators.

Immigration reform and the Republican legislative agenda passed by a Republican Congress and signed by a Republican president will demoralize — and defeat — the Soros-controlled Democrats future plans to radically alter America.

George Soros cannot let this happen!
