    What do you think about Trump policies for immigrants?

    "It's our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us." said Trump.
    By asserting authority to pick and choose immigrants, Trump was defending some of his most controversial campaign proposals -- including a ban on Muslims, which he called for and has not yet disavowed, and a more targeted restriction on immigrants from countries that don't satisfy his vetting requirements.

    These measures won’t fix the real problem of illegal immigration, all it will do is hurt the legal immigrants who are (for the most part) innocent. Being Muslim does not mean you are a terrorist.

    Usually once taking office a president will come to terms with what they can really accomplish versus their campaign promises (does anyone remember Pres. Obama’s closing Gitmo in his first 100 days).

    I am not sure if any of his proposals are constitutional or not, but I bet many (many, many, many) groups (such as the ACLU, Amnesty international and others) will sue at his every turn (or anything he does).

      Of Course such policies or statements are artificial, for a campaign to be successful. No such thing will ever work in reality.

      We have existing Immigration Laws that Obama is refusing to uphold. It is these laws that choose immigrants. Immigrants that go thru the legal immigration process are refused entry because of quotas, AND failing to meet requirements.

      And upholding the Law is a big part of his Job (if not the only real reason to have a Pres). The Pres shouldn't have the ability to pick and choose what laws he will enforce. Enforce not create or ignore laws.

    Obama bypassed the legal immigration process, and so do the illegal immigrants that just have to cross the border, no vetting, no quotas, and then Obama and sanctuary cities give them de facto American Citizenship. This discriminates the aliens that go through the legal process, and so many get turned away because of quotas.

    Instead of bringing in hundreds of thousands of Islamic immigrants into the US, and Europe, and other countries, why don't we just put our efforts into creating a safe zone in the Middle East. Islam is not a culture that can be assimilated in America. They can't even integrate among the different factions of Islam.

    You can't vet them, and therefore you shouldn't admit them. It doesn't take very many Islamic Terrorists to create destruction and havoc.

    Muslims in the Middle East need to sort out their own problems, and not bring them into the US.

      Wouldn't the better plan for the US and the Muslim Immigrants to stay in their own lands. ISIL setup their country, why can't the US help setup safety zones in the Middle East instead of transplanting them around the world.???
