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. 

Taking America to the Cleaners

While Americans pay the bills for these abuses, Mexico freely makes billions on trade deals. In addition, individual Mexicans are free to send more money across the border, equaling an estimated $22 billion in 2013 alone.

Trump’s website states, “The Mexican government has taken the United States to the cleaners. They are responsible for this problem, and they must help pay to clean it up,” which refers to the wall Trump promised during his campaign.

If Mexico disagrees or holds off paying for the wall, Trump’s plan of action will be to impound remittance payments from illegal wages, raise fees on temporary visas, and increase fees on border crossing cards to get started. Thank you, Mr. Trump, for plugging the liberal drain our progressive counterparts opened, allowing our money to pour out of our great nation. 

Did you realize how much the illegal immigration problem had cost America?
