Make America Great Again: President Trump calls for barring immigrants from welfare for five years

There is the key, free money, using our own social service system against us! Halt that, and you halt the invasion. Say what you will, but he and his staff are playing one hell of a chess match.

This is a great step in the right direction. Next, let’s make it conditional on assimilation: follow laws, learn the language, understand that the culture you left behind doesn’t override the one that was here when you came, disavow terror and terrorists, etc.

I love this. It will stem the flow of economic refugees looking for hard working Americans to support them.

I think this is a good thing just as I think making people on welfare that are not disabled work to get food stamps or welfare in some way. Many come to country on work visas, they’re supposed to be WORKING, not receiving welfare, so yes immigrants should not be eligible for welfare.

Only two kinds of people could oppose this- illegals, and those who pay no taxes anyway. Well, OK, we’ll add Democrats hungry for new voters.

Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
Every American citizen needs to read this!

Ah…another racist ban that will be destined to fail. Congress won’t take this on. They aren’t willing to lose their seats. That will push Trump to write an Executive Order and the 9th Circuit will apply logic and reason to it.

… and with any luck, the SCOTUS will reaffirm!
