Trump’s Base: Mandatory E-Verify to Protect U.S. Jobs, Wages ‘Critical’ for Any Immigration Deal…(2 Attacks…Only 2 Yesterday…)

Mandatory E-Verify, the system that prevents businesses from hiring illegal aliens over American citizens, is crucial to any immigration deal by President Trump’s administration and Congress, the president’s base of supporters say.

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is set to present Trump with an immigration plan that tackles the country’s mass legal immigration system — which admits about 1.2 million nationals a year — and the overflow of illegal immigrants to the country, where now anywhere between 11 to 22 million illegal aliens live in the U.S.

The plan, Trump’s base of supporters say, must include nationwide mandatory E-Verify to ensure that American employers do not keep employing illegal aliens over American citizens. The overwhelming majority of illegal aliens, researchers say, come to the U.S. for jobs.

“Immigration should serve the interests of American workers,” NumbersUSA’s Rosemary Jenks told Breitbart News. “Job opportunities for American workers have increased in the Trump economy, but wages are not keeping pace.”

A deal that reforms legal and illegal immigration, Jenks said, should reduce legal immigration levels by ending the process known as chain migration, where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.

Also, a deal must include mandatory E-Verify, Jenks said, to bring marginalized Americans into the workforce and stem the tide of soaring illegal immigration levels.

“We need to reduce legal immigration by eliminating chain migration and the visa lottery, and then revamp the employment-based immigration system so that visas are distributed based on merit, particularly the wage an employer is willing to offer,” Jenks said. “We also need to prevent illegal aliens from taking jobs from Americans and further suppressing wages. That means E-Verify must be mandatory for all employers.”

One of Trump’s biggest allies in the Senate, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) — who has co-authored the wage-boosting, legal immigration-cutting RAISE Act legislation with Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) — told Breitbart News that mandatory E-Verify is “one of the most important tools we have to address illegal immigration in our country.”
