Trumps immigration plan has a lot of good but e-verify is more government interference for everyone and won’t stop the 12+ million from working. If it does who will feed and house the unemployed illegal aliens? The taxpayer. They won’t just go home, many can’t.
The E-Verify program seeks to prevent unauthorized workers from gaining employment by requiring that everyone in the United States seek permission from the government before taking a job. Now a largely voluntary program, E-Verify could soon become mandatory nationwide under comprehensive immigration reform. https://www.aclu.org/feature/10-big-problems-e-verify
What Trump gets right. “A nation without borders is not a nation.” Even Jim Harbaugh agrees we need a boarder. I know it’s not in keeping with many libertarian views to have boarders but pragmatism has to win the day. We can’t just take everyone that has a worse situation in their country.
“A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation.” This if applied means we should be looking out for ourselves first and foremost. Something the Obama admin and his globalist allies deeply disagree with. How many feel the feds are working in our best interest in mind? I’m talking about the FDA and EPA in particular. With just those two agency’s alone I could write for days.
“End birthright citizenship. This remains the biggest magnet for illegal immigration. By a 2:1 margin, voters say it’s the wrong policy, including Harry Reid who said “no sane country” would give automatic citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants.” Being an American isn’t something to just give out as if it’s worth nothing, to both taxpayers and our culture.
“Detention—not catch-and-release. Illegal aliens apprehended crossing the border must be detained until they are sent home, no more catch-and-release.” How many incidents of violent crime add up to enforcement of immigration laws?
Will the other candidates take up this plan (minus e-verify)? Challenge them to do so.
