Lindsay Grahamnesty Offers Surprising Idea For Immigration

Well, surprising if you know his super squishy history regarding immigration

(UPI) Senators are mulling making it harder for U.S. citizens to get visas for family members while easing the path for high-skilled foreign workers, a senator said.

“We’re going to change fundamentally the immigration system,” including tighter limits on family visas, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told The Washington Post.

“Right now you get green cards to adult children, to grandparents,” Graham said. “What I want to do is reserve green cards based on the economic needs of the country, and we’ll do something for families. But the goal for me is to replace a chained-migration immigration system with an economic-based immigration system.”

This is a great idea, as it would mean fewer soon-to-be on government services immigrants, but people who actually bring skills and, yes, earnings potential. And less chance to overstay their visas. Obviously, Democrats do not like this

In the Senate discussions, Republicans would prefer to admit larger numbers of highly skilled workers, who would provide an immediate economic benefit and who business leaders say are in short supply, while Democrats generally want to give priority to family members of citizens and legal residents already in the country.

Democrats prefer more wards of the state versus productive visa holders/citizens

    why are we allowing anyone in? Is Lindsay saying that only illegal immigrants can get jobs that will spur economic growth of our nation?

    With such high unemployment, and people striving to find jobs, why should we allow, and PRAISE the illegal felons already here as our economic saviors, an amnesty for felonies committed against this nation?

    If you were caught with a 12 round magazine in NY while on an interview there, would you be given amnesty because of the chance of you filling a job there?

    Sooo you want.immigrants to only.get the best jobs and.Americans to do the farm work?

    Actually john, at one point in time to gain entrance into the country as an immigrant, you had to demonstrate you either has a job or were bringing a desired / unique ski;l with you.

    Please tell us why similar regulations should not be in place now? Why are you against people working? For that matter, why are you against a growing economy?

  4. john says:

    Levtiiccus 19:34 The Bible is pretty clear about how you are supposed to treat immigrants.

  5. gitarcarver says:

    Luckily we do that, john.

    Of course, that has nothing to do with the discussion at hand, but we expect nothing less from you.

    And, we know you don’t like Jews, John, so why are you quoting a book of the Talmud?

    Also, the scripture was meant toward the Israelites. And, it is meant to treat people with respect, not to forgive all evils and breaking of laws.

    And, you for once should think for yourself, if we were to treat them as Americans, didn’t the “immigrants” break laws to illegally enter this nation?

    So, are you now saying that you are fully supportive of throwing all illegal entrants in to jail?
