Trump's New Immigration Policy

Updated on February 26, 2017

Where the illegals live.

Trump's immigration policy has largely been a confusing mess because of its sloppy roll-out and how the U.S. Border Patrol and ICE would implemented. It really remains a work in-progress drip in a deliberate sense.

At first, it was just a focus on those illegals with felonies. Most would agree that is a good thing, illegals here with criminal records should be the first priority. But the problem was in definition. Which felony crimes were subject to deportation? There is a huge difference from murder and petty theft. Maybe Trump had meant "any" felony, but it was not clear. There remains confusion about those under DACA who are caught in the ICE net with minor felonies or gang affiliation.

As time went on, Trump expanded the policy for deportation. The 11 million of illegals in the USA will now worry about just about any infraction or misdemeanor, also. Infractions are as simple as jaywalking, traffic violations, that police may or may choose to cite for. Misdemeanors are those crimes that jail time is less than one year, a simple battery and assault, shoplifting, for example. But the expansion also now includes those illegals who pose a threat to Americans, or, have taken advantage of welfare benefits. It includes any employer who hires illegals with stiffer fines against the employer and maybe charged with criminal offense. It allows ICE to return an illegal back to Mexico. The problem with this (and that Mexico has with it) is many are not even Mexican but Spanish people from Central America or South America. What is Mexico suppose to do with them? Complicating this is the fact that many have no papers but because they speak Spanish and look Mexican, they are Mexican. ICE will not care. Also, ICE will arrest parents who are caught smuggling their kids into America.

Trump has casted a huge net to catch illegals and continues to expand it every week and will hire 10,000 more border patrol agents to do it.

      The laws have been violated and broken for so long, going after every person of the 11 million is nonsense- just get the worst of them.

      I suppose the irony is in attempting to enforce the laws because people have broken it by coming here illegally. Was it a perfect rollout? No.
