BORDER/CONGRESS/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump said Wednesday [2-6-19] he wants to see more legal immigration because additional workers are needed by companies moving back to the United States…Trump’s remarks followed an unscripted comment in his State of the Union address Tuesday [2-5-19] in which he called for immigrants to enter the U.S. legally in ‘the largest numbers ever.’ The ad-libbed line immediately caught the attention of immigration advocates because it appeared to contradict the Trump administration’s hard-line stance on immigration, including the president’s push to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump’s administration also has moved to cut legal immigration. It has granted fewer visas, approved fewer refugees, ordered the removal of hundreds of thousands of legal residents whose home countries have been hit by war and natural disasters and pushed Congress to pass laws to dramatically cut the entire legal immigration system.”
