But I can't make money in capitalism because too many people do what I do is basically entitled thought under conservative philosophy.
I mean the employers are donors right?
He is not for legal visas. He wants the number to be lower for the type of labor we actually need. By the way....many many incredible people came as labor. Including I believe Tesla. Trump wants skilled professionals and less labor that would help the trades.

Mexico and their strong immigration laws?
Yeah, I forgot, they are at day 2 of enforcing that strong law.
I hope there is something behind what Trump is saying but so far, governments don't seem to care about enforcing immigration law above some token level.
‐ The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” How’s that for racial and ethnic profiling?
‐ If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam, and prove they can provide their own health care.
‐ Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without due process and the endless bites at the litigation apple that illegal aliens are afforded in our country (see, for example, President Obama’s illegal-alien aunt — a fugitive from deportation for eight years who is awaiting a second decision on her previously rejected asylum claim).
‐ Law-enforcement officials at all levels — by national mandate — must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal-alien arrests and deportations. The Mexican military is also required to assist in immigration-enforcement operations. Native-born Mexicans are empowered to make citizens’ arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to authorities.
"Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners under equality of circumstances for all classes of concessions and for all employment, positions, or commissions of the Government in which the status of citizenship is not indispensable." Foreigners, immigrants, and even naturalized citizens of Mexico may not serve as military officers, Mexican-flagged ship and airline crew, or chiefs of seaports and airports.

The democrats control the house...
I bet they can stop it and this is a political ploy...
They could pass a law... but it would have to get through the Senate, and then either be signed by Trump or overridden with a 2/3 supermajority.
They could file lawsuits (which they will, and which will fail). I wonder, the next time I am arrested, can I sue the government for arresting me?
Or they could scream at the moon. Guess which one they'll do.
The House is worthless unless they are willing to work with the Senate and the President. Just controlling 1/2 of 1 out of 3 branches of government does not mean they control the government. It just means they can be a pain in everyone's side.
Go get 'em, Mr. President!
