Donald Trump has a convert, and then some, in Larry Kudlow:
I’ve Changed. This Is War. Seal the Borders. Stop the Visas.This is an expected, but delightful, development. It won't be long before the American mainstream endorses mass repatriations. That is the best possible outcome; a widespread resurgence of peaceful nationalism that is not unlawfully resisted by an anti-democratic internationalist elite.
I know this is not my usual position. But this is a war. Therefore I have come to believe there should be no immigration or visa waivers until the U.S. adopts a completely new system to stop radical Islamic terrorists from entering the country. A wartime lockdown. And a big change in my thinking.
ISIS and related Islamic terrorists are already here. More are coming. We must stop them.
Until FBI director James Comey gives us the green light, I say seal the borders.
Here’s what we must do: Completely reform the vetting process for immigrants and foreign visitors. Change the screening process. Come up with a new visa-application review process. Stop this nonsense of marriage-visa fraud. And in the meantime, seal the borders. I agree with Jessica Vaughn, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, who argued many of these points in excellent detail on the National Review website on Friday.
Again, why am I taking this hardline position? In the past, I have been an immigration reformer, not a restrictionist. But we are at war. That changes everything.
- Stop all visas, green cards, and immigration.
- Seal the borders.
- Repatriate all illegals, criminals, dual-citizens, and nationals from Muslim countries.
- Debate and formulate a new immigration system that will return the US demographics to a reasonable facsimile of 1965 over time.
- Implement the new system.
