The latest figures released by the Whitehouse paint a glowing appraisal for Donald Trump, as it shows that 30,000 criminal immigrants have been arrested by ICE officials in the past 5 months. Almost 90% of the detainees had prior convictions for arson, murder, sexual assault, and domestic violence. These are not the type of people you want coming into the United States, and it vindicates the decision of Donald Trump to tighten security on immigration.
Ever since he became president Trump has been very vocal about the need to step up vigilance on illegal immigration, and he is now carrying out everything he promised he would do. He has already signed up Executive Orders to give control to law enforcement officials about the need to clean up U.S. cities. The illegal immigrants already living in the U.S. are being identified and detained, and any new aliens trying to break into the country must try harder now.
Illegal Immigration Crackdown
Recent reports have revealed that the crackdown on illegal immigration has met with success, with reports showing a 60% fall in the number of aliens looing to cross the South West of the Border. This is indicative of the success Trump has had in only his first 6 months in office, and with stricter laws coming into place soon, the days when immigrants could take advantage of lax border patrol and control are all but over. The increase in security has greatly reduced the number of immigrants, and it has also had an impact on economic migrants and refugees.
Trumps travel ban is already being pushed through by the Supreme Court, and it is only a matter of time before the United States is going to be completely free from the refugee crisis that is threatening Europe. Countries all around the world like Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt, Brazil, Pakistan, and China are also cracking down on illegal immigrants, and have tightened visa laws.
The War on Dangerous Immigration
Donald Trump has got a very clear agenda, which is in stark contrast with the previous administration. He has not been elected to try and please everyone, and make friends. He believes that he is making the right decision by declaring war on immigrants, and his hardline stance has already shown positive results. This is something that the mainstream media is finding hard to fathom, since they are pushing the national consensus on immigration.
However, a recent report released by Politico suggests that 60% Americans, and around 41% Democrats are in favor of his travel ban. Now, all Trump is left to deal with is his Wall, and plans have already been set in motion to see it to completion. Trump has already notified construction architects and firms, and instructed them to come up with a way to build this wall, with an estimated budget of $21.6 billion.
Trump sat next to his Mexican counterpart when he was at the G20 meeting in Hamburg, and he insisted once again that he will ‘absolutely’ see Mexico pay for the construction of the wall. The administration officials have already suggested that there has been massive progress made on illegal immigration, and the discussions surrounding the building of the wall is linked closely to NAFTA renegotiations taking place.
Trump now has momentum on his side, when it comes to immigration, and if it continues its course, then he will have public support and the Democratic Party will be forced to acknowledge he was right. This has placed the Democrats into a tricky situation, because the 2018 elections are just around the corner, and if they don’t get their act together, they will not be able to take back the House from Republicans.
However, they are not concerned about Trump getting his wish with the wall, and pushing through the transfer ban, since Democrats are still going to fight Trump till the end. It confounds belief that the Democratic Party is refusing to see sense, and realize that there is already a legal process in place for immigration in the country.
It is only a matter of time before all of them join the Trump Train, and quickly become united in their efforts to defeat illegal immigration in the United States.
