Even CBS “battleground” poll that is +8% Dem shows > 2X as many Americans, 48%, want illegal migrant families immediately returned to their native countries vs. 21% who approve granting “temporary” entry & allowing illegals “to report back for hearings” https://t.co/9N2PoNQsQh pic.twitter.com/aZhYNVCWnx

Like trade, illegal immigration is an issue and a problem left long to fester and get worse and worse. No POLITICIANS want to address it because all they cared about was their popularity polls.
Trump is no politician (which he wittingly and unwittingly proves every day). He takes these problems on as challenges, looking to see if he is capable of solving problems no one else can. Like trade, it will be messy and painful to solve because the problem has been allowed to get so bad and everyone has basically gotten used to the problems they cause.
The left continues to use illegal immigration as a political talking point instead of an expensive problem borne on the back of the American taxpayer. Trump has them boxed in by it. They continue to play games with the lives of citizens AND illegal immigrants at their own peril.
Frankly i hope TIME loses a lot of readers for their fake cover and lies
December 6, 2018 — Making President Trump’s Bed: A Housekeeper Without Papers
What a surprise.
@Greg: O M G!!!
She probably stole someone’s SS to get the job.
@Deplorable Me: She also made available her Individual Taxpayer Identification, a nine-digit number that is issued by the Internal Revenue Service to foreigners to enable them to file taxes without being permanent residents of the United States.
Obtained with fake papers making it impossible for employers to determine if they are legal. He hates these people we are told, yet compliments her and tips her a C note?
See how the headline is a huge lie?
@Greg: So you think Trump individually does the background checking on all of his hundreds of employees? Are you stupid or is it just an act? If I had a company with that many employees, I would have some of those employees to be responsible for hiring legal employees. You don’t seem to have a problem with ‘technicalities’ anyhow, for example, that Obozo was an Indonesian citizen when he was serving as president. That he doesn’t have a State dept approved passport, only a diplomatic one issued after he became president.
Not knowing she was an illegal immigrant, she was rewarded for a job well done, regardless of her ethnicity. In repayment, she turned herself in as an illegal immigrant to cause embarrassment to her former boss that showed her such magnanimity. This is a pretty clear example of why illegal immigrants should be deported; they flaunt our laws and try to do damage to our Republic.
May 17, 2019 — Trump administration prepares to release Central American migrants ‘across the entire nation’
The man is an idiot. Congress had reached a bi-partisan compromise agreement on immigration reform, which Trump blew up with the promise of a veto.
No plan is apparent because there is no plan. It’s more likely that thought has been given to how this might fit into a reelection strategy: Let things get even more screwed up, and then blame it all on the Democrats.
Some lucky contractor is going to make a load of money.
I wonder how many could be put up in the Trump hotels and resorts? And maybe in tents on the golf courses…
@Greg: Obama did the same goddamn thing. I just hope they all get concentrated in those glorious “sanctuary cities” that love them so much.
Think it’s a crisis yet? Are you happy with what your little crybaby Democrats in Washington have caused?
@Greg: How many can fit in democrat congressional offices cause they cant reform immigration? They cant be held there are laws, bad ones made by actvist judges.Leftist lawyers with scripts for the invaders to read claiming asylum. Recycled rent a kids https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/rapid-dna-testing-at-border-outs-migrant-who-claimed-six-month-old-baby-was-his-child
Your media says there is no crisis
I wish I could send the bill for educating the illegal children in just my school district to Nancy Pelosi.
Why was this stopped? https://usaonlinepress.com/2019/05/17/the-trump-administration-reportedly-sent-no-match-letters-to-over-570000-employers-telling-them-they-might-have-undocumented-workers/
Dems in congress still fighting tooth and nail to stop the building of the border fence.
I’m sure they’ll all appreciate the free airfare Trump will be providing to locations all across the United States, courtesy of the taxpayers. Then what? There aren’t the resources to keep them in custody, nor the resources to expeditiously process them. The solution? Turn ’em all loose and blame the democrats!
Obama was putting record numbers of apprehended illegal border-crossers back on the other side of the border, as I recall, in locations other than their original crossing points to make it harder to repeat the process. What was disparaged as catch and release was actually an effective—and cost effective—stopgap deterrent. The undocumented population declined during Obama’s presidency.
The truth is that things have gone to hell in a handbag on Trump’s watch. His blather about an impenetrable wall has created a now-or-never human stampede, making the entire situation 10 times worse; his only ideas about how to deal with the results are how to capitalize on the situation politically. He has worsened the problem, and rejected proposed bipartisan solutions, and now he’s going to exploit the results of his own ineptitude. That’s the Trump genius.
Putting them right where they belong; in the loving arms of sanctuary cities. This eliminates the liberals crutch of “doing good” at the expense of everyone else.
Obama did the same damned thing. Remember objecting to it then? No, you don’t.
Hmmm… “blame the Democrats”. Let’s see… Democrats have blocked securing the border, stopping illegal immigrants at the border, making “asylum seekers” wait it out on the other side of the border, more money for detention beds, holding detainees for more than 21 days, they broadcast all the ways our laws can be circumvented, the loopholes, the magic words to say at the border and they provide support for the caravans that now form an endless flow to our borders. I wonder, who ELSE is to blame?
Democrats are intentionally trying to overwhelm our border resources in order to create a crisis to blame on Trump. Suffering and death means nothing to them, it’s all fodder for the media to exploit. However, realize that we see the facts and know the truth. It’s NOT Trump’s fault; the crisis has been created because he is working to secure the border. It is the DEMOCRATS that are the criminals.
No he wasn’t. His “record numbers” were created by counting someone turned back at the border as a “deportation”. You know… LYING.
What, relocate them somewhere they can just walk across an undefended border? Yeah, that’s brilliance. That way, you don’t have to count them when they sneak in.
Because the economy in Mexico was better than Obama’s economy. That is the ONLY thing that sent illegal immigrants back south.
June 17, 2019 — Trump vows mass immigration arrests, removals of ‘millions of illegal aliens’ starting next week
So much for what were supposed to be secret preparations.
Is he going to deport the undocumented parents of minor children who are natural born U.S. citizens?
@Greg:Yes all those here not in a legal status including dreamers should go back to their native countries.
@Greg: Illegal is illegal. The left has encouraged illegal immigration to the point that it is not critical and people will suffer. But, Democrats will be satisfied, because they get both ends of their anti-American policies; they get millions of illegal immigrants to flood the nation, which they hope to use to bloat their census stats WITHOUT identifying them as illegal AND they can exploit their misery, blame it all on Trump, and weaken our country.
