If nothing else, President-elect Donald Trump is known for his fierce stance on the nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants. In fact, it’s one of the main things that separates Republicans and Democrats, especially when a “wall” is mentioned.
On 60 Minutes, Trump revealed a promise that had illegals shivering – “What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country, or we are going to incarcerate.”
Our president-elect offers more than abstract promises, however. He has a hard-core plan.
Donald Trump on Immigration Reform
Trump’s website focuses on three simple ideas for immigration reform.
1. A nation without borders is not a nation.
2. A nation without laws is not a nation.
3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation.
If a wall is built, Trump plans to have Mexico pay for it, since Mexican leaders allowed for illegals to enter America by the hundreds. In fact, they have even published pamphlets on how to illegally immigrate to America.
In 2011, the annual cost of tax-free credits paid to illegal aliens hit a record $4.2 billion, which hurts all Americans. In addition, there were also 3 million arrests associated with incarcerated aliens, which included crimes like violent rapes, fights, and murders.
