President Trump shocked Democrats when, a few weeks ago, he promised to make a powerful move against illegal immigration. Democrats pleaded with the president not to do it. They even passed a border funding bill just to appease him. But the troubles at our border are far from over. And acting Immigration director promises, they’re ready to act.
It may seem odd to the average America that Democrats are so opposed to protecting our borders. Everyone can see how unchecked, illegal immigration harms our country. Aside from the massive problems it creates for national security and crime (thanks to many drug cartel members getting in), illegal immigrant labor takes jobs from hard-working Americans.
Democrats should care about that, right? After all, Americans hurt the most by illegal immigrant labor are blue-collar, union workers. Yet these days, Democrats do everything in their power to aid illegals—by helping them get into the country and protecting them while here.
I’m surprised there’s any unions left supporting Democrats.
For over two years, President Trump has fought to end the crisis of illegal immigration. He’s spent tremendous amounts of energy and effort to secure our border and root out criminal aliens. Thanks to his efforts, job prospects for Americans are high. Companies are working hard to hire and keep good American workers. This is a direct result of Trump’s policies, which have reduced the number of illegal labor available to companies.
But he still has to fight hard to get anything done in D.C. The most recent funding bill passed by Congress to address the border crisis only happened, because Trump made a shocking promise. He announced that ICE was going to deport over a million illegal aliens. Desperate to protect their pawns, Democrats agreed to pass a funding bill. So, Trump delayed the deportations.
It seems, though, that the deportations are coming anyway.
Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Ken Cuccinelli says the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is ready to deport about a million illegal aliens who remain in the country despite having final orders for deportation…
“[ICE agents are] ready to just perform their mission which is to go and find and detain and then deport the approximately one million people who have final removal orders. They’ve been all the way through the due process and have final removal orders. Who among those will be targeted for this particular effort or not is really just information kept within ICE.”
Cuccinelli said mass deportations by ICE of illegal aliens with final deportation orders “should be going on on a rolling basis” and blamed “the politics of Washington” for interfering with ICE operations. [Source: Breitbart]
Wow. One million illegals getting the boot? That should make a huge impact on our nation’s national security, to say the least.
These illegal aliens have already been through the court process and have been found ineligible to stay. They came here illegally (or overstayed their visas), but refused to comply when our government said they should leave. Many of them benefited from Obama’s catch-and-release policy. They were caught and processed for illegal entry. But were released—making it easier for them to stick around.
Illegals have had it easy for many years. They thought they could get away with ignoring our laws and jeopardizing our communities. The broken system only encouraged more illegals to come.
As Cuccinelli said, deportations should be happening all the time. Yet it’s corrupt swamp dwellers in D.C. that always seem to delay or divert the process. Democrats don’t want illegal immigrants getting deported. They’d don’t seem to care how much Americans are hurt by this problem.
But Trump’s Immigration director is done with the left’s games. He is planning on getting rid of these aliens once and for all.
Trump gave them a slight delay—but the deportations are coming.
This is crucial. It will show the rest of the world, especially migrants at the border, that the United States will protect its people and uphold our laws. These deportations will discourage more people from trying to jump the fence.
All we need now is a wall to keep the border secure.
