This is pure peevishness and pandering to a small, steadily shrinking, segment of the population. That it's bad social policy is a given, but even looking at it through the most conservative, self-interested lens, it's bad economic policy too. Apart from a short term sop to a few angry voices, there are no positives from a policy point of view to what he is attempting. I'm at a loss as to what his motives could be, apart from the silliest politicking.
