Louisiana Republican sen. John Kennedy says that some people in Washington believe that illegal immigration is a ‘morally good’.

As President Trump gears up to a comprehensive new immigration, reveal plan, Louisiana Republican sen. John Kennedy said the country is in dire need of immigration laws, “like someone designed it on purpose.”

In an interview with “America’s Newsroom” on Thursday morning, Kennedy said he liked what he had seen so far in terms of President Trump, the new immigration plan, but necessary, to read the full proposal. He added that he feels that there is a problem with Democrats in Washington, the perception of the border as a “nuisance” and illegal immigration as a “morally good.”

“Let me state the obvious. Illegal immigration is illegal, duh,” said Mr Kennedy. “ of the problem is, there are people in Washington, DC in the positions of power, to which the border is just a nuisance, and I think that some of them believe that illegal immigration is a moral good.

“Is not it. It undermines legal immigration,” Kennedy continued. “The President is trying to fix it long-term, and again I would like to read the bill. But we need a system that looks like someone designed it on purpose.”

President Trump’s proposed plan, Build America Visa system, would reportedly quadruple the number of immigrants admitted on the basis of their skills, and slash admitted the numbers, based on family ties.

Kennedy expressed his support for this type of merit-based system, and the success Canada has had marked with similar guidelines.

“Canada has a merit system. We have to admit — we, the people, in part legally, on the basis of a lottery. It is like playing bingo,” he said. “That makes no sense. I hope we can solve the Problem.”

Getting any kind of immigration, the cooperation will be passed to the two ends, something that Kennedy is not sure that he can see from his Democratic colleagues.

“I could be convinced, but I’m not convinced right now that all of my colleagues on the Democratic side, really, to fix it,” he said. “Some see this as a great political question. We need to start thinking about the next generation and stop thinking about the next elections so much,” he concluded.
