On his nationally syndicated radio show Thursday, host Mark Levin praised President Trump’s announcement regarding immigration reform based on merit, saying that “the purpose of immigration is to benefit the American citizenry,” not “for the benefit of the alien foreigner.”

“The purpose of immigration is not to bring in as many people from all over the world as possible to increase the ranks of the Democrat party and expand the welfare state,” said Levin. “And it’s time we take this argument back.”

Levin’s comments come hours after the President announced the RAISE Act, giving those who speak English and can financially support themselves preference in obtaining a green card and coming to the United States.

Read the transcript below:

“You know, before we go any further, we need to understand the purpose of immigration. Immigration is not, is not a program, it is not a policy that’s for the benefit of the alien foreigner, that’s for the benefit of poor people overseas, that’s for the benefit of the Third World, or Eastern Europe, or Western Europe, or whatever part of the world you want to look at.

“The purpose of immigration is to benefit the American citizenry. That’s the number one priority. All we hear about is the poor alien. What are they gonna do? All we hear about is the DREAM Act, the propaganda, the phony titles, the phony laws, the executive fiats. The purpose of immigration is to support the American citizenry and the American culture and American business. That’s right!

“The purpose of immigration is not to bring in as many people from all over the world as possible to increase the ranks of the Democrat Party and expand the welfare state.

“And it’s time we take this argument back. Who are the racists? The left, the Democrats – they always have been, and they still are. They don’t believe in a colorblind society, as I’ll explain later on this affirmative action issue.”
