It’s about time to show all the legal immigrants that all the time, money and hard work it took to come here and become citizens was not just a waste. Our laws on immigration are not there to keep people out, they are there to keep the wrong people out and to protect our citizens.
It was reported on Tuesday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is temporarily shutting down a taxpayer-funded advice service for the huge numbers of illegal migrants who drive down blue-collar wages throughout the United States.

The program, dubbed the Legal Orientation Program, paid various left-wing groups to provide immigration-court advice to migrants, according to the Washington Post. The program helped roughly 53,000 migrants during 2017, the Post said.
The shutdown spotlights the administration’s efforts to reform the nation’s business-oriented immigration system, which annually delivers at least one million additional cheap workers and taxpayer-aided consumers to businesses, and up to one million government-dependent voters to the Democratic Party. Overall, the nation’s migration policy shifts at least $500 billion per year from young Americans up to investors, employers, real-estate owners, and migration-industry progressives.
Of course, liberals quickly showed their disagreement with Sessions move. Migration advocates, including immigration lawyers who sell slices of American citizenship, quickly showed their resentment about the loss of the taxpayer subsidy, which has been run by the huge Vera Institute of Justice since 2005.
I’ve worked on 2 different LOP projects. This will pile on more to already over worked IJs and will add to the Immigration Court backlog. https://t.co/qQucJDHUFV

@CAIRCoalition operates one of these program in MD and VA. We are the only ones going into these detention centers. In many places these programs are the only acces to legal services detained immigrants including asylum seekers have. #immigration #DueProcess https://t.co/AdPtzTdLz5

Another shameful attack on fairness and due process. Most asylum seekers never get a lawyer. Now DOJ is eliminating the only life-line guiding them through the baffling & byzantine immigration system. Dept of INJUSTICE will send many back to life-threatening persecution. https://t.co/49QnJbq6gw

More terrible news from the Trump administration. The end of the Legal Orientation Program (LOP) will have a huge impact on detained immigrants and organizations supporting them. https://t.co/XIqgP5tA1l

Freezing isn’t the answer, CUT IT OFF! No reason taxpayers should pay to do anything for immigrants. We have a nation in serious trouble… we have a HUGE number of service organizations run by the hard Leftist who are relishing in piles of taxpayer cash borrowed from our enemies.
It’s like we are being required to pay for our own nation’s executioners.
Why should any taxer payer fund the legal advice for an illegal alien? Who is funding our legal advice? Well, no more! If you come illegally you get caught, you pay the price. Not me or any other taxpayer.
Do you agree? Share this article if you support Trump administration’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigration!
