The House GOP immigration bill is big business populism

“This will be a game changer, as it will make businesses liable if they undercut American workers by hiring illegal immigrants” writes Ryan Girdusky for The plan is a mix of parts of President Trump’s populist agenda with visa expansions to big business and agricultural lobbyists.On Wednesday, Republicans unveiled a House immigration proposal that was endorsed within hours by the White House.Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the bill ends chain migration, thus reducing legal immigration by 25 percent, only half of what Trump proposed last year.Mass immigration has come at a huge expense for working-class Americans, and it has helped fuel Trump’s populist movement.
