And here it is. It took a while, but the real truth is out now: Neither Trump, nor the right want want even legal immigration.

The Trump administration announced a new rule on Monday that could curb legal immigration by limiting who is allowed into the United States based on whether they are "self-sufficient," according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has changed the scope of the so-called public charge rule to now "incorporate consideration of more kinds of public benefits received," according to a news release from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The rule includes individuals "who receives one or more designated public benefits for more than 12 months, in the aggregate, within any 36-month period (such that, for instance, receipt of two benefits in one month counts as two months)," the release said.

Certain forms of Medicaid, Social Security Income and Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) -- or food stamps -- are all considered as public benefits under the new rule, among other things.

Legal immigration should be cut by at least 50%. Merit base immigration should be installed. We are not the Welfare Dept. for the world.
Wow, at least you admit it. You seem to have no problem being the police department for the world though.

Please, give your reasoning for limiting legal immigration. And no, your talking point reply in post #2 is not sufficient. It used to be that you conservatives claimed to be just fine with legal immigration, just simply opposed to illegal immigration. Most of us knew you were full of shit and indeed are against legal immigration as well. Thanks for proving it.

We already have a few million illegals in the country now. Shut off immigration to all except genuine asylum seekers, sponsored people and work visa holders. More enforcement of the existing laws is also needed.

Is it safe to say you're opposed to the administrations' goal to cut asylum seekers to zero in 2020?

If your implying I see it for what it is, you'd be correct. If this country is to continue to be prosperous, flooding it with indigent, unskilled labor, and uneducated people will only hurt this country as it did during the Obimbo recession years. Contrary to popular belief this country does not have an infinite amount of resources. The days of mass immigration are long passed us. Only skilled and educated people with the means to support themselves should be allowed to immigrate.

And there it is, folks. Right there in black and white for everyone to see.

There are so many lies in their post its ridiculous, but also useless to even point out. Conservatives are not known for acknowledging the truth.
