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.

Immigration reform is long-overdue in America. There is a growing conflict over treatment of illegal aliens and the associated processing procedures. Other topics such as chain-migration, anchor babies, a border wall in the South, unaccompanied minors, what benefits immigrants can...

Do you find it strange Fox News--who had 24 hour coverage of the "invading horde" of criminals suddenly dropped their coverage the day after the election? No, I'm don't either as it was simply a ploy for Trump to get his ignorant base out to vote in the mid-terms.Since then neither Donnie...

Explain how Trump's Wall will be different from the Berlin Wall or the Wall in Israel. How will it "keep us safe"?

Do you think Trumps "plan" he released for funding the wall is possible?While I am not a Trump fan I do think we need something done about illegal immigration. Trump released his plan and part of it included stopping wire transfers to Mexicans. Since it is commonly known Mexican illegal...

Trumps speech on August 31 was fraught with lies and miss-information. He should not call it his policy on Immigration, but it should be called his policy on Deportation. I watched the entire speech and it gave me chills. He sounded and acted just like Hitler and Mussolini. Here...
