GOP Leadership Starting To Get Tough On DACA Amnesty, Cutting Chain Migration

Republican leaders are aligning with the party’s conservative wing when it comes to a legislative replacement for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, insisting that deeper immigration reforms must accompany an amnesty deal.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday night that he wants to work with Democrats on a DACA bill, but will push for changes favored by conservative immigration reformers.
“I agree with Cotton and Perdue” on their RAISE Act, McConnell told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.
McConnell was referring to a bill sponsored earlier this year by Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia that would dramatically curtail chain migration, move the U.S. to a merit-based immigration system, and do away with the diversity visa lottery. Backed by the White House, the RAISE Act has become a favorite of immigration hawks, who want Republicans to use the bill as a negotiating point in any potential DACA bill.

Dear John,
I am very, very proud of you – a Pray for US follower and supporter.  Working together, we helped America achieve a great feat early this morning.  Read on. Take joy in the fruits of your faith and in obeying James’ admonition that faith without work gives naught.  For, the good works we put forth, the Work in the meaning of James, did produce great results:
Getting the 2017 Senate to pass such massive tax cuts early this morning was quite a job and the supporters of Pray for US – Pray for the United States can be proud of the role they all played in the first fundamental reform of the US tax code in several generations.  BUT… DO NOT believe what ABC, CBS, CNN and all of the other Garbage News Networks (let’s call ‘em GNN from now on) say about these Trump Tax Cuts.
It seems that every GNN on the globe – liberals all and mostly fronted by talking heads like globalist anti-America mouthpieces in the mode of Matt Lauer – predict doom and gloom and massive future budget deficits.   Our followers sent in support of the Pray for US efforts over 170,000 FaxGrams to Congress, but…
We are in a tremendous shortfall situation.
Could you please consider sending help to defray the costs incurred in helping our great nation to achieve this victory?
This tax cut bill will help spur economic growth, more jobs, more investment, create a more fair society and help eliminate income disparity.
These Trump tax cuts will result in just the opposite due to:
  • Massive increases in employment;
  • Massive new investments in American infrastructure by corporations that are finally able to bring their foreign cash profits home to invest here;
  • Elimination of state and local tax deductions against federal taxes – that will help virtually all middle class taxpayers over the long run because high-earners in high tax states (like California and New York) will no longer be able to force regular folks like you and me to finance their spendthrift lifestyles with built-in protections for most.
  • Immediate incentives to invest in capital improvements – which in turn create jobs and make America more competitive – through more rapid expensing of investment in property, plant and equipment.
  • Fairer and more reasonable treatment of so-called “pass-through” income to individual taxpayers that reflect taxes that have already been paid on such income.
  • Elimination of the tax penalty associated with Obamacare’ individual mandate and this could have substantial impact upon ObamaCare‘s future.
Please remember that the tax cut bill could change in the mandated conference procedure between the House and Senate because each bill has numerous variations.   In my opinion, the resultant bill will be a ground-breaking legislation that will pave the way for 25 years of growth, employment and happiness in America.  FOX News reports that President Trump celebrated the Senate’s middle-of-the-night passage of a sweeping tax overhaul by calling it the “the largest tax decrease in the history of our country by far” and predicting Democrats could be harmed in future elections for not backing it.
President Trump said he was called at about 3 a.m. EST this morning DC Time to tell him the Senate had passed the bill.  As we are located in the Pacific Time Zone, we got this great news around midnight.   At midnight it became clear a great new light is appearing over America and that we should all rejoice both in our nation’s victory but, as well, in God’s anointment of our leaders in the White House and Congress for truly we are a blessed nation.
As the Bible says in I Timothy 2:1-2, “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”  With your next prayer, please include our leaders and think of Timothy’s charge to include our leaders and give thanks for them.
Please keep in mind that you followers sent in support of the Pray for US efforts over 170,000 FaxGrams.
We are in a tremendous shortfall situation in this effort.
Could you please consider sending us $50 to defray the great costs incurred in helping our great nation to achieve this victory?.
