The joint goals of Donald Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto are to end the flow of drugs, cash, guns across the border and put the cartels out of business.
Trump vowed our new relationship with Mexico will be fair.
He said the current immigration system serves the needs of wealthy donors, political activists. It does not serve YOU the American people. Politicians speak of amnesty and open borders when talking about immigration reform. He said, we should focus on policies and reforms to make life better for American citizens.
He said we have to listen to concerns from the working class about unchecked immigration.
It’s our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants who will thrive, assimilate and love us.
Countless people have died because of open borders.
The core issue is NOT the needs of the illegals who are here.
There is only one core issue in the immigration debate and that is the well-being of the American people.
We will be fair and compassionate to all, but our greatest compassion must be for our American citizens.
Obama and Clinton have engaged in gross dereliction of duty by open borders, sanctuary cities, catch and release, and unconstitutional executive amnesty. Clinton has promised amnesty, ObamaCare, social security, and Medicare for illegals. Clinton doesn’t know what she’s doing except open borders, let everybody in and destroy the country.
Trump Immigration Plan
The Trump plan was crafted with input from immigration officers. He posted a complete transcript on Facebook.
- Build a great wall along the Southern border, and Mexico will pay for the wall – 100%. On Day 1, we will begin working on an impenetrable, wall with above and below-ground sensors, towers, aerial surveillance, find and dislocate tunnels. Mexico will work with us, especially after meeting with their wonderful President. They want to solve this problem.
- End catch-and-release. Illegals will be detained and sent great distances back to the country they came from. Zero tolerance for criminal aliens. Zero. We will begin moving them out Day 1 in joint operation with local, state, and federal law enforcement. First hour in office – those people are gone! You can call it deported. You can call it whatever the hell you want it. Their days have run out. The crime will stop. It will be over. We will issue detainers for illegals who are arrested for any crime whatsover. We will terminate the Obama administration’s deadly pandering to criminal aliens. We will restore programs to identify deportable aliens. Will ask Congress to pass Kate’s Law for criminal aliens to get strong mandatory minimum sentences, then deported. Davis-Oliver Bill will swiftly identify and remove criminal aliens. Triple ICE deportation officers. Hire 5,000 more border patrol agents and put more of them on the border. Will expand the number of Border Patrol stations significantly.
- Block funding for sanctuary cities.
- Cancel unconstitutional executive orders and enforce all immigration laws.
- Anyone who enters the United States illegally is subject to deportation. Otherwise we don’t have a country.
- Suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening does not occur. Immigration would be suspended from countries like Syria and Libya. New screening tests including an ideological certification to be sure those entering the country share our values and love our people. Applicants will be asked about their views on honor killings, women, gays, radical Islam.
- We will be sure other countries take their people after they’re deported. They’re being released into our communities. Clinton is directly responsible for releasing 13,000 criminal aliens.
- Finally complete the biometric entry/exit visa tracking system. Removing visa over-stays will be a top priority. If people can over-stay and never leave, we have an open border and no country.
- We will turn off the jobs and benefits magnet. We will be sure e-verify is used. Immigration laws exist to protect all aspects of American life. That’s why immigration limits are established. The same goes for government benefits.
- We will reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers – assimilation, integration, upward mobility. Keep immigration levels within historical norms, to select immigratns based on their likelihood of success in American society and ability to be financially self-sufficient. Under a Trump administration, it’s called America first. Choose immigrants based on merit, skill, and proficiency. We should sunset our visa laws so they can be brought up-to-date.
These 10 steps if rigorously followed will accomplish more in months than politicians have in 50 years. I will get this done for you and your family. We’ll get this right. We will have a peace dividend to spend on rebuilding America, including our American inner cities. Illegals seeking legal status must return return and re-apply under the new rules. They will have to apply for entry under immigration caps and limits. We will break the cycle of amnesty. There will be no amnesty. Our message to the world: you cannot obtain legal status by illegally entering our country. Those days are over.
