The restrictions would block entry into the United States under the H-1B visa program for high-skilled workers, and would also affect several other categories of visas, although it would exempt health care professionals and farm workers, among others. Taken together, senior administration officials said, the worker visa bans and green card suspensions would prevent 525,000 immigrants from working in the United States between now and the end of the year.

The order, which has been expected for several weeks, is fiercely opposed by a broad swathe of businesses — including high tech companies in Silicon Valley, manufacturers, and others — whose leaders say it will block their ability to recruit critically needed workers from overseas countries for jobs that Americans cannot or will not perform.

Stephen Miller, the architect of the president’s restrictive immigration policies, has pushed for years to limit or eliminate the worker visas, arguing that they harm employment prospects for Americans. In recent months, he has argued that the economic distress caused by the virus has made it even more important to turn off the spigot of foreign entry into the United States.

 
We are only against illegal immigration. So we just want to make all immigration illegal.

Did he offer any evidence that immigration (legal or otherwise) was bringing the virus into the country? Yes, that was a rhetorical question.

Do not be fooled by those saying this is about illegal immigration, not legal immigration. That is a smokescreen

The number of refugee admissions to the U.S. fell to the lowest level on record last year. This year, the Trump administration set the refugee cap even lower, reserving just 18,000 spots. (Source: Washington Post story today).

Then there is this whole proposal to admit only based on “merit” and the implementation of the “public charge rule.”

Anahi Jaquez Estrada was detained for 18 months at an ICE facility before being deported on October 22, 2019 after having lived in the United States since age 3. She was her senior class president, an honors student and an insurance agent in her hometown Wiggins, Colorado. In 2018, a client filed a fraudulent insurance claim and Jaquez Estrada failed to verify a technicality before approving it. The claim was later withdrawn by the client. She was charged with insurance fraud, while the client walked free. A felony charge was plead down to a misdemeanor with probation. During her first probation visit, she was detained by ICE agents leaving behind her husband and 8-year-old daughter both United States citizens. From there, the family was thrust into a nightmare scenario for a seemingly normal American family. Estrada Perez said she was treated as though she had killed somebody for a simple misdemeanor. In ICE custody she said detainees were given fresh clothes every three days, a single bar of hotel style soap monthly, fresh linens maybe monthly and worked voluntary jobs for 30+ hours a week for a single dollar of pay. On the day of her October 22, 2019 deportation, her husband, Jose Trujillo Perez got word through friends that Anahi was being deported. He called the facility to find out where she would be going. He was told they would not tell him, so he began driving from eastern colorado to Juarez, Mexico in hopes that she would be there. Anahi was, in fact, taken to Juarez with no phone and $50. She knew the dangers of “murder city” and feared for her life as she was dropped off at 2am. Two men in the group suggested she stay with them as the streets of Juarez are lno place for a solo person let alone a woman. Jose, meanwhile, was frantically searching. At the border an agent had to wave a hand in front of his face to snap him out of his exhausted and racing mind. The agent was confused, but as soon as he mspoke the words, “mi esposa fue deportado,” the agent let him through immediately. They were reunited shortly after. Anahi has not seen her daughter in person since October 19, 2019, which was the first time she had been able to hug her in more than a year

Six Ways Immigration Reform Can “Make America Great”

The academic literature on the impact of immigration is clear: immigrants help — not harm — the U.S. economy as a whole and commit crimes at lower levels than do native-born Americans. But the impacts of immigration in communities across the country gets muddled; some Americans don’t see the positive benefits of immigration. While it’s accurate that more than half of America’s billion-dollar startups have an immigrant founder, the truth is that an economy is more than just the Fortune 500. 

The U.S. has just 5 percent of the world’s population; like a sports team, the U.S. must recruit talent from outside to promote its prosperity and maximize the contributions of all on the team, or the country. Immigrants continue to serve the American people well, despite the deep, structural flaws in a U.S. immigration system that hasn’t been modernized in decades. By fixing that system, we can leverage immigration policy even more effectively to directly aid Americans. 

 

Thanks. Lots of good talking points there; I shared it out in the wild...
