President Donald Trump described his four-part offer for a huge amnesty of at least 1.8 million illegals as part of his broader strategy to put Americans first.
“These four pillars will produce legislation that fulfills my ironclad pledge to only sign a bill that puts America first,” Trump declared in his 2018 State of the Union speech as democratic legislators sat in cold silence, some with their arms crossed.
He added: We presented the Congress with a detailed proposal that should be supported by both parties as a fair compromise — one where nobody gets everything they want, but where our country gets the critical reforms it needs.
The framework plan is being firmly opposed by several pro-American immigration reform groups, including NumbersUSA, partly because it does not reduce immigration inflow until all 4 million foreigners on the immigration waiting list have arrived after 2030.
Also, the amnesty offer for 1.8 million ‘dreamer’ illegals is expected to grow larger because of expected fraud by applicants and continued business advocacy for more imported workers and consumers.
