All four of Hawaii’s representatives in Congress, two U.S. Senators and two U.S. Representatives, Hawaii’s entire Congressional delegation, were graded F-, the lowest possible grade, on immigration issues!
Despite the fact that immigration is regarded as the primary issue that elected President Trump and a Republican Congress, and despite polls of likely voters such as this one by Rasmussen:
– Only 18% think illegal aliens should be given amnesty; 62% believe legalization should occur only after the border is secured, and 19% are unsure.
– Only 25% think it is even somewhat likely that the federal government will secure the border and prevent illegal immigration with new immigration legislation; 65% consider it unlikely.
– Giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who are covered and eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would cost American taxpayers $26 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Under the DREAM Act, Americans would have to pay for at least two million illegal aliens who would become eligible for federal entitlement programs such as Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as “food stamps.” “In total, CBO and JCT estimate that changes in direct spending and revenues from enacting S. 1615 would increase budget deficits by $25.9 billion over the 2018-2027 period, boosting on-budget deficits by $30.6 billion and decreasing off-budget deficits by $4.7 billion over that period.”
– ‘Chain migration,’ of the families of amnestied illegal immigrants is estimated to cost taxpayers $300 Billion, since 1 immigrant can bring in 120 more, 9.3 Million in a decade. DACA amnestied chain migration would exceed 4 years of U.S. births.
On the issue that a supermajority of Americans regard as the most important issue in the lifetime of living Americans, Hawaii’s delegation is AWOL, contemptuously and destructively pursuing the global elite’s strategy of open borders multi-culturalism which is so obviously failing in Europe and elsewhere. Hawaii’s delegation is missing in action or opposing Americans.
