Pres Trump Constructs New U.S. Immigration Policy

January 26, 2017

President Trump signed executive actions Wednesday ordering the construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall and targeting sanctuary cities, following through on campaign promises that energized his base – and outraged his critics – during the 2016 campaign.

The orders cover a range of immigration enforcement measures. The marquee item is a directive to pursue a southern border wall. 

“A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump declared after signing the measures, while speaking to employees at the Department of Homeland Security. “Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders.”

    PRAY FOR The Donald!

  • Roger says:

    Donald Trump is so right so often about so much, that it is unbelievable! He is an unstoppable genius!

    1. Roger says:

      Sixteen Republican challengers couldn’t stop Donald Trump, the Democrats couldn’t stop him, adversaries in his own party couldn’t stop him, the lying liberal media couldn’t stop him, the thug protesters hired by the Democrats to disrupt his rallies couldn’t stop him, crooked Hillary, despite her underhanded cheating and attempt to rig the election couldn’t stop him, so why are so many wasting their time? Donald Trump overcame adversity never before seen in the history of an American Presidential election and no one is going to stop him! I truly believe that Donald Trump will be the GREATEST President that America has ever seen! A safer, stronger more prosperous and greater than ever before AMERICA!

      1. Roger says:

        Every American that cares about this country, needs to write their Congress persons every day and demand that crooked Hillary be arrested, prosecuted and punished for her crimes against America and the American people!
        Copy and paste the message below and email to both of your senators and representatives:
        I want to know why Hillary Clinton hasn’t been arrested for her crimes against the government and humanity. This woman has broken more laws than can be counted on both hands. If you think that Hillary what difference at this point does it make, that four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens died Clinton hasn’t broken the law and was a complete failure as Secretary of State you aren’t fit to be a member of Congress! I am an American citizen and I demand justice for all. Hillary Clinton is not above the law, she is a criminal and certainly not fit to be President of the greatest country in the world!
        Hillary (Benghazi) Clinton belongs in prison!
        The Equal Protection Clause is part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The clause, which took effect in 1868, provides that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction “the equal protection of the laws”.
        Anyone with a functioning brain should understand that this means all criminals shall be held accountable for their crimes as well! I also demand that Hillary Clinton return or replace the six billion dollars that went missing from the State Department when she was Secretary of State, that is taxpayer money and we want it!

        1. Roger says:

          Hillary Clinton is a criminal and a traitor to America and the American people! Donald Trump was right to call her crooked Hillary!

          Donald Trump is so right so often about so much, that it is unbelievable! He is an unstoppable genius!

          If you supported crooked Hillary, you are and idiot! If you voted for crooked Hillary, you are an idiot! Crooked Hillary Clinton belongs in prison and if you think she doesn’t you are an idiot!

        2. GoldenGirl2u says:

          This is the only reservation that I have about Pres. Trump, that he seems to be backing off on the Hillary Investigation, she belongs in jail at the very least to be charged. Drain the Swamp, along with the Border Wall, Jobs, stopping the lawlessness in our government and cities, he has made a great start and hope he follows through.

    2. Anouk says:

      I agree Roger! President Trump is a genius. He is a hard working Great American lover.
      What a difference with the lazy golfer Obo.
      Vive la difference!

  • Tiger says:

    All these thugs mouthing off to Trump about how they are not going to shut down their Sanctuary cities need to take a good look at our laws. They can and most likely under Trump will be brought to trial and charges made.

    This countries fatheads like Emanuel in Chicago and others lived lawlessly for so long under the umbrella of a lawless Muslim thug that they don’t realize it is over. Because it is really over.

    Here is just a portion of what they might face.

    The following is an overview of federal law on hiring and harboring
    illegal aliens. It is not a substitute for professional legal counsel in
    specific situations.


    A person (including a group of persons, business, organization or local government) commits a federal felony when he:

    assists an alien whom he should reasonably know is illegally in
    the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting,
    sheltering, or assisting him to obtain employment,

    encourages that alien to remain in the U.S., by referring him to
    an employer, by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way,

    knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

    Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and
    forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime.

    Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without
    verifying his work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor.
    Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest,
    detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition,
    individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that
    commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject
    to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief.

    1. Barrustio says:

      Denying funds to sanctuary cities is a wise move, that way all the illegals will flood to those cities thereby reducing the strain and crime on cities who abide by the law. Once those cities run out of money for their “generosity and humanitarianism”, I’m sure civil unrest will arise in those centers. So, should anarchy and civil war should come to fruition, it’s good to know where your enemy is.

      1. Tiger says:

        We have many enemies within. But true knowing where they are is a good thing.

    2. Roger says:

      The problem with sanctuary cities is that their Mayors and other city leaders believe that they are above the law! Federal law supersedes all state, city and local laws!

      End Sanctuary Cities and deport all illegal alien criminals so they can’t murder anymore Kate Steinle’s!
      It is up to the people to put an end to sanctuary cities, especially the people that live in those cities! People of America we must demand that the leaders of our communities stop protecting criminals!
      The illegal alien criminals could be your next door neighbor or live in your neighborhood or nearby! Don’t wait for a loved one to be raped or murdered by these criminal predators!

      Citizens of so called sanctuary cities should demand that the leaders of their communities stop protecting criminals! if they don’t they can sit and wonder how long it will be before their daughter will be beaten, raped and murdered, like Kate Steinle was or some other family member murdered! You don’t know who these people are or where they are, they could be your next door neighbor or living nearby!

      Not to mention that American’s tax dollars are supporting these criminals!

      1. Roger says:

        It is time to rewrite immigration laws, entering the U.S. illegally or overstaying a visa should be equal felonious crimes! If a person’s unlawful presence in the country isn’t a felony, if I write checks for more money than I have in the bank that shouldn’t be a felony either!

        1. Just1Saddletramp says:

          The laws are already there and don’t need to be rewritten, just enforced

        2. Retired says:

          Time to go back to the way the laws were in the 50s, no sponsor no entry and the Sponsor was responsable for you.

      2. Tiger says:

        The laws are on the books my friend and Trump will remind them maybe gently at first but he won’t allow them to continue.

  • justinwachin says:

    I’m glad to see we finally have a president who is willing to enforce our immigration laws. I seem to remember that legislation for building a wall was passed by Congress and signed by President Bush.

    The media seems to be hung up on Mexico’s refusal to pay for the wall. I have an easy answer for how to get Mexico to pay for the wall. They can pay for the gates which allow Mexican products to come into the United States for sale. Mexico has a lot of factories producing goods destined for America. It will be cheaper in the long run for Mexico to pay to put some gates in the wall than for them to have to load their products onto ships and bring them in through one of our ports.

  • Barrustio says:

    Who said it couldn’t be done?

    1. Roger says:

      How many of you convey your solutions to any problem to your Senators and Representatives or anyone else that can fix or help fix the problem! Like #potus (Donald Trump)!

      1. Barrustio says:

        I don’t know about anybody else but I stay in contact with Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott on state and national issues and they keep me updated on issues.

  • Rick D. says:

    Trump has done more for our country in less than one week in office that Barry did during 8 years!! Keep it up, Mr. President….we’ve got your back!!

  • Webb says:

    The wall is a start to solve Illegal Immigration…Its a Must!
    Yet our national problem is the illegal immigrants here now…how many?
    Hard decisions have to be made. In my view, green cards should be issued to all here now and without Any social services…Period!
    Work and Live Free…with a path to citizenship.
    Never more letting Illegal Immigrants into our Country…Solve this problem once and for All!
    ☆☆☆ Its Time!

    1. Jerry says:

      I like part of what you say but I don’t agree in letting them all stay, our labor force cannot absorb all those people competing for the few jobs we have available

      1. Webb says:

        I understand our labor force and competition for jobs…
        But is that competition not here already and lets face it, many Americans will not take the jobs that immigrants will take or do. As A Teenager, I worked the fields in many areas, Today, teenagers growing into adults will not take these jobs…
        Illegal immigration needs to be solved once and for all and stopped by Border Wall and the proper way to become an American Citizen!

        1. Jerry says:

          I agree that the kids today aren’t as willing to work as the kids in prior generations, I picked rocks as a kid, I detailed corn, I did those “hard” jobs, I sort of enjoyed them tho, yes a lot of work, yes they taught you to work, I’m not sure why the kids of today aren’t willing, I raised my kids on a farm, they did those jobs for free, they learned hard work, but a lot of kids think hard work is taking the garbage out on garbage day, how many don’t even do chores around the house, I don’t know the answer on the 11 million plus illegals in our country, some are here to work and earn a living, some are here fr the government handouts, and some are here as criminals, if we could do away with the last 2 groups and allow the 1st group to stay, I and many others would be good with that, but how do we do that, how do we get there? Yes build the wall and keep more from coming, my ancestors came here as immigrants, but they did it the correct way, they learned the language, the accepted the laws, our immigration laws worked for many years, they still do work,

          1. Webb says:

            Jerry…Kudos on how you raised your kids!!
            As You did so did I…I grew up in an Orphanage Home worked the Farm, Dairy for 7 years…Teenagers today have no idea of work!
            I do agree on the 2 groups…But someone has to find a permanent solution and resolve this Problem.
            We’re See…Take care!

          2. Roger says:

            I really am sick and tired of people lumping a group of people in one category! I know a lot of teenagers that work hard! There are teenagers that don’t want to work but don’t say teenagers as in all teenagers have no idea of work, because you are wrong!

          3. Jerry says:

            You are correct in the fact there are teens willing to work hard, and it is unfair to group them all in one group, I don’t think he was really intending to do that, It is more the norm of the kids sitting and playing video games instead of working however,

          4. Webb says:

            I wasn’t painting all teenagers with a broad brush…but today teens do not work inside or outside the home as they did 40 to 50 years ago….

          5. Roger says:

            I totally disagree! I was raised on a farm to, with no electricity and no inside plumbing except for a well pump in the kitchen! Illegal is illegal and every illegal here should be deported! If they aren’t living off the American taxpayer, they are taking our jobs and saying they only take jobs American’s don’t want is BS!

          6. Jerry says:

            perhaps but some of the workers do work hard and will not take a dime they didn’t earn, yes they are illegal but maybe there is some way to allow them a path to become citizens? Maybe?

          7. keith says:

            Yea they can leave the country and come back through legal channels. If they do not respect our laws they do not need to be here. Let them follow the law just as I would if I was moving to Mexico. If not they should be punished as I would if I came to Mexico as a criminal. End of story. Let’s reciprocate the same law that is used on us if we commit crimes in Mexico.

          8. Jerry says:

            Yes that indeed would be the fairest I guess, perhaps I’m just getting soft in my old age, I guess if they werent here illegally then maybe the places only hiring illegals would have to change their hiring practices

          9. keith says:

            As far as some of the jobs ,I have known of some factories that lowered the wages to the point that the only people that would work was the illegals.I knew of a factory that shut down, and reopened and would only hire illegal mexicans. I’m sure that there are many that way. The owners are greedy and pay minimum wage.

        2. Barrustio says:

          What our spoiled teenagers need is a dose of “olde school”.I also worked the fields in my youth and it taught me a good work ethic and the knowledge that if you want to get out of them, you WORK for your education rather than depend of student loans that you will never pay back even if you get a degree. Kids nowadays will “demand” what they want to eat or throw what they don’t want off the table. The way I was brought up, you ate what was served or you didn’t eat.

          1. Webb says:

            Agree…with every word!!

        3. GoldenGirl2u says:

          Webb, I agree with most, except, no Citizenship, they can be here with a permanent resident status. There has to be some penalty for entering this country illegally.

        4. ken51136 says:

          “many Americans will not take the jobs that immigrants will take or do.” If our government was NOT so set on spending (GIVING) every Dime of the Tax Payert to Illegals, poor countries that will not help their own Citizens (because they all know they will receive money from US), Giving moulateney to those who will not look for work because they have have learned to manipulate the system; OUR Washington system continues to us it to Buy themselves votes and pay to plat Favors. If there was less free hand outs to those who don’t want to work for food and shelter; there would be more willing to do ANY JOB they could find and less chose y about what they would have to do to earn their Own Dollar.

    2. Barrustio says:

      Denying benefits to illegals removes the incentive for people to come here illegally

      1. Webb says:

        As I stated No social programs…Period!
        I agree!

      2. Cliff Barton says:

        Australia has the answer to the immigration problem. Give them nothing. No work, no money, nothing. Either leave or starve.

        1. Barrustio says:

          I’m down with that…let them eat pie…cow pie

    3. keith says:

      No green cards for people that came here as criminals with total disregard for our laws. By giving them green cards you are making these illegals believe that our laws have no meaning. We must start deporting all illegals and get the message across that it will not be tolerated.

      1. Webb says:

        11.5 million…15 million…20 million, whatever the number may be, deporting would never happen by either party!
        I am against Illegal Immigration 100% Percent but a solution has to be found to Stop it from happening…

    Finally , we Americans have a President with some smarts and backbone to stand up for America.

    1. Tiger says:

      These mayors are going to learn a hard lesson with their Sanctuary cities. Trump will gladly teach them.

      1. Retired says:

        Most of the cities are Democrat controlled and also drug havens . Mayor from Chicago is getting nervous with trump saying he will send the feds. Just read the head of the Border patrol got the Trump Ax.

        1. Tiger says:

          Oh he is the hammer and they are the nails.

    2. rhuland says:

      Let’s be clear – he has the BALLS to enforce the law and to protect our country. Hallelujah!
