In his “State of the Union” (SOTU) Democrat response address on Tuesday night, Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA) recalled an anti-President Trump, pro-open borders sign that he saw during a protest against the president.
America, we carry that story on our shoulders. You swarmed to Washington last year to ensure that no parent has to worry if they can afford to save their child’s life. you probably marched together last weekend, thousands on the streets of Las Vegas, Philadelphia, and Nashville. You set high atop your mom’s shoulder and held a sign that read ‘Build a wall in my generation will tear it down.’ [Emphasis added]
Kennedy’s comment was coupled with a push by the Democrat congressman to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which will officially end in March 2018.
Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 foreign nationals, with the vast majority deriving from family-based chain migration, whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record high of 44 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.
Mass immigration has come at the expense of America’s working and middle class, which has suffered from poor job growth, stagnant wages, and increased public costs to offset the importation of millions of low-skilled foreign nationals.
