Trump's Diabolical Immigration Policy

Updated on September 11, 2018

Much less known are the internal immigration policies of the Trump administration against American citizens and those who have been here for years with a Green card.

The Trump administration is focusing on reducing immigration by any means necessary, including reducing the number of Green cards issued to those who are already in the USA. Without the Green card, you have to leave within a 30-60 days or face deportation.

Issue 1

Oddly, a person can enlist in the armed forces even if they are not a USC. This has been happening for years under the MAVNI program and over 10,000 have done so. Those who enlisted with a valuable skill are promised a path to becoming a USC after their enlistment period is up. These people are all foreign-born nationals serving in the U.S. military service. The background checks for these people is more stringent and usually takes many months to years. In the meantime, the person is serving.

Trump's immigration policy is targeting these people now and thousands have already been faced with the new reality that the path to becoming an American is now closed. Many have been suddenly discharged from the military and their status is an undocumented alien facing deportation. The discharge reason given is quite vague but some have found out it was because of the most silly reasons. Declassified reports obtained through the Freedom of Information Act by the recruits show that they were discharged for routine phone calls to overseas relatives or mundane financial connections with their birth countries. One such person, born in South Korea, who worked in the medical field, was called into her superior's office and was told she was discharged for failing the background check. This was after over a year of being in the military. She suddenly became a person subject to deportation for calling her parents! She fled to California, a sanctuary state where ICE faces opposition.

Issue 2

The Trump administration is also going after American born persons whose parents are not USC. Many are from Puerto Rico and other countries and the person finds out only when they leave the USA and try to return. This policy began with authorities found out that 40% of the birth certificates from Puerto Rico and Texas were fake. Imagine, being a person who thought they were born in the USA, therefore, a citizen, who goes back to Mexico or wherever for a visit. When they try to return, the passport is confiscated and entry is refused! Imagine the shock and disbelief when they find out their parents had paid for a fake birth certificate stating they were born in the USA. Now, their whole life in the USA is gone, with no remedy. The odd thing is that if you are from Puerto Rico, you ARE American. However, what many do is say their child was born there, pay for the fake BC, so they can be American (as with any U.S. state).

Issue 3

Lastly, the Trump administration is going after Green card holders, many who have been here over 10 years, that have ever used the American welfare system for assistance! Many may have used it when they first arrived for food stamps, medical, aid to families, but not now. This could amount to millions of immigrants being suddenly deported or taken by ICE simply for getting help. Most welfare programs do not discriminate based upon citizenship status, so the numbers will be high. Imagine being deported because you got $100 in food stamps 10 years ago.

The K1 Visa program, which allows a USC to marry a foreigner is also making it harder for the foreigner obtain a Green card simply by reducing the number being made available. This is done simply by denying the I-485, a form which allows the foreigner to get one. It is estimated that over 40% who file for a change of status from the K1 visa to a conditional Green card are rejected for simply missing an interview, or, not filing the correct paperwork. When this happens, the newly married spouse must return to their home country.
