Pres. Trump sat down with FOX News's Sean Hannity on Wednesday night to discuss a number of issues, including his recently released immigration principles. Most of you received an action alert earlier this week on those principles, but you can read more about them here.
The 70-point plan includes a number of top priorities for NumbersUSA, including a requirement that all employers use E-Verify and an end to family chain migration. Pres. Trump spoke specifically about that latter point during his interview with Hannity.
Watch the clip by clicking on the picture below, but here's what the president had to say:
"Chain migration is one of the disasters. You allow one person in, and that one person brings in 10 or 12 people."

HOUSE GOP LEADERS READY TO BUCK TRUMP
Despite Pres. Trump's comments and the detailed list of principles, and based on conversations on the Hill, our Capitol Hill team fears that the DACA Task Force and GOP Leadership will settle on legislation that would trade a DACA amnesty with lifetime work permits for a weak border bill introduced by Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) and a few meaningless enforcement provisions.
We need your URGENT phone calls today to stop this proposal in its tracks!
Below is a list of House GOP Leaders and the DACA Task Force with the contact information for the D.C. offices. Please call every Member on this list telling them that they shouldn't consider anything less than what Trump proposed in his priorities.
We must derail this proposal before it becomes a reality!
HOUSE GOP LEADERSHIP
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) -- (202) 225-3031
Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) -- (202) 225-2915
Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) -- (202) 225-3015
GOP Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) -- (202) 225-2006
HOUSE DACA TASK FORCE
Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) - (202) 225-3864
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) - (202) 225-4211

Again, please call every Member (or as many as you can) on this list and demand that they don't consider anything less than Pres. Trump's full list of immigration principles.
It's been the voices of millions of NumbersUSA activists and other concerned Americans that have brought the issue of chain migration to the forefront, and there's finally an administration that understands the harmful impacts that chain migration has on American workers and the long-term sustainability of the American quality of life.
Thanks Kat, got it.
