Original Message Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs blasted President Trump’s fourth push in a month to increase legal immigration to benefit multinational corporations at the expense of American workers, calling the policy shift a “tragic reversal” of his “America First” platform and a “catastrophe” for the country’s working class.

During a segment on Lou Dobbs Tonight, Dobbs slammed Trump’s comments yesterday when he called for legal immigration to be increased beyond the already 1.2 million legal immigrants that are admitted every year so that businesses could grow their profit margins.

“We want a lot of people coming in … We want to have the companies grow and the only way they’re going to grow is if we give them the workers and the only way we’re going to have the workers is to do exactly what we’re doing,” Trump said during a White House roundtable alongside adviser Ivanka Trump, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty.

Dobbs said the policy shift would wipe out the job gains and wage increases that the country’s working and middle class have enjoyed thanks to the tightened labor market.

"Tonight I’d like to share a few thoughts, however, about the what I fear is a new direction for the president and his administration and what could very likely a catastrophe for our working men and women … our middle class and the American family — the very people this president has represented from the moment he announced he would run for the presidency.

What we watched unfold today at the White House was, to me, a disastrous policy turn and heartbreaking."
