President Trump has indicated that he will keep his campaign promises. And much to the chagrin of the Left, one of those promises was to protect the American citizens; first and foremost
Thus, Trump laid down the gauntlet recently, as he initiated immigration raids.
As Politico reported,
In a statement Monday, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly confirmed that more than 680 immigrants were swept up in so-called “targeted enforcement operations” across several cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, San Antonio and New York City.
According to Chronicle,
The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press. The 11-page document calls for the unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans, Louisiana.
Four states that border on Mexico are included in the proposal — California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas — but it also encompasses seven states contiguous to those four — Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. Governors in the 11 states would have a choice whether to have their guard troops participate, according to the memo, written by U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general. While National Guard personnel have been used to assist with immigration-related missions on the U.S.-Mexico border before, they have never been used as broadly or as far north.
The memo is addressed to the then-acting heads of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. It would serve as guidance to implement the wide-ranging executive order on immigration and border security that President Donald Trump signed Jan. 25. Such memos are routinely issued to supplement executive orders.
Even the less-prominent provisions in Trump’s order could, in the advocates’ view, wrongly ensnare immigrants. For instance, the order deems those who have “engaged in fraud or willful misrepresentation” before the government as priorities. That could mean that immigrants accused of lying during a green card interview could be targeted for deportation, according to Cleveland-based immigration attorney David Leopold.“When you read that executive order, there is no other conclusion that you can draw except that everybody is a target. Everybody,” said Leopold, former president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “It’s carefully couched in terms of prioritizing criminals, but it’s designed to encourage and allow ICE agents to pick up anybody they can get their hands on.”
The only conclusion we can come to is President Trump is serious about people using America’s LEGAL immigration system. And he is determined to have ALL citizens and non-citizens follow the rule of law.
