Then copy and paste these Talking Points:
2019 Immigration legislation must include the following measures:
MUST FULLY FUND barriers/wall on our southern border and end asylum loopholes
MUST MANDATE E-Verify to deny jobs to illegal immigrants
MUST END Chain Migration now, not delay for 15 more years
MUST make legal immigration more skill-based and reduce it by half
MUST END the Visa Lottery and drastically reduce H-1B and H-2B work visas
Ignore the call for Large Scale Amnesty coming from the Democrats and the “Gang” in the Senate. Citizens demand the above measures, NOT another large scale amnesty.

President Trump’s 10 Point Plan On Immigration

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

Below is President Donald Trump’s 10 Point Plan On Immigration To Put America First.

Taken from: www.donaldjtrump.com/policies/immigration in early 2017

1. Begin working on an impenetrable physical wall on the southern border, on day one. Mexico will pay for the wall.
2. End catch-and-release. Under a Trump administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country.
3. Move criminal aliens out day one, in joint operations with local, state, and federal law enforcement. We will terminate the Obama administration’s deadly, non-enforcement policies that allow thousands of criminal aliens to freely roam our streets.
4. End sanctuary cities.
5. Immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive amnesties. All immigration laws will be enforced – we will triple the number of ICE agents. Anyone who enters the U.S. illegally is subject to deportation. That is what it means to have laws and to have a country.
6. Suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening cannot occur, until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put into place.
7. Ensure that other countries take their people back when we order them deported.
8. Ensure that a biometric entry-exit visa tracking system is fully implemented at all land, air, and sea ports.
9. Turn off the jobs and benefits magnet. Many immigrants come to the U.S. illegally in search of jobs, even though federal law prohibits the employment of illegal immigrants.
10. Reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, keeping immigration levels within historic norms.

Trump and U.S. Supreme Court Justices And Why It Matters

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has incredible powers, although many see it as just one of the three branches of our federal government. With the wrong Justices, the SCOTUS can literally rewrite our U.S. Constitution and take rights and protections away from citizens. There is already one opening due to Justice Scalia passing away, and a very liberal President in January nominating a very liberal Justice to the SCOTUS would tip the current balance to a liberal SCOTUS. Actually our next President of the USA will likely have the opportunity to nominate three Justices to the SCOTUS, and this will affect our Supreme Court for the next three decades. With additional very liberal Justices, given what is going on today, our nation will become unrecognizable and may never recover.

We watched the current SCOTUS vote in a court case to require every citizen to purchase health care (nowhere in the U.S. Constitution), Obamacare, and then the SCOTUS proceeded in another court case to redefine a word, marriage, that had been understood without question since 1300. There are other concerns such as will a Jurist to the SCOTUS honestly interpret the law and be a strict constructionist or attempt to rewrite our Constitution. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (nominated to the Supreme Court by Bill Clinton in 1993) has caused another concern as she said we should use the laws of other nations to determine U.S. law. Also, Sharia law is creeping into our lower court system. Justice Elena Kagan (nominated to the Supreme Court by Barack Obama) has made similar comments as Ginsburg about international law having weight when interpreting our Constitution. The U.S. President also nominates numerous federal judges in lower courts.

A somewhat recent case in the SCOTUS challenging President Obama’s use of a large scale amnesty for illegal immigrants and attempting to rewrite existing immigration laws and usurp powers reserved for Congress was not defeated, but with a vote of 4 to 4, was sent back to a lower federal court. All of the Democrat appointees to the SCOTUS voted to allow powers Obama does not legally have. This ruling was especially scary given the case was really about the Separation of Powers between the President and the U.S. Congress as defined in our Constitution.
