The New York Times ran a feature article in which they discussed President Trump’s illegal immigration crackdown and came to a shocking conclusion – it’s working.
The tone def column demonstrates why the media just isn’t grasping the popularity of the President’s enforcement of immigration laws.
They’ve created a sympathetic tone for the illegals already in this country and those currently trying to sneak in the country, citing numerous examples of “undocumented” immigrants who were planning to cross America’s borders and how they had to change their plans when Trump won the election. The tactic completely ignores the fact that Americans are sympathetic to the hardships of those in other countries – but we’re not sympathetic to those who break the law to get here.
Regardless, the Times reluctantly admits that Trump’s policies – what he said he’d do on the campaign trail and has continued to say – are working.
Via the New York Times:
While some of Mr. Trump’s most ambitious plans to tighten the border are still a long way off, particularly his campaign pledge to build a massive wall, his hard-line approach to immigration already seems to have led to sharp declines in the flow of migrants from Central America bound for the United States.
From February through May, the number of undocumented immigrants stopped or caught along the southwest border of the United States fell 60 percent from the same period last year, according to United States Customs and Border Protection— evidence that far fewer migrants are heading north, officials on both sides of the border say.
Here’s the kicker paragraph, however:
Inside the United States, the Trump administration has cast a broader enforcement net, including reversing Obama-era rules that put a priority on arresting serious criminals and mostly left other undocumented immigrants alone. Arrests of immigrants living illegally in the United States have soared, with the biggest increase coming among those migrants with no criminal records.
Those last four words are remarkably obtuse.
The only reason those so-called ‘migrants’ have ‘no criminal record’ is because under Obama, they weren’t charged with the crime of crossing the border ILLEGALLY.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan recently explained this concept.
“People that enter this country illegally violate the laws of this country,” Homan explained. “You can’t want to be a part of this great nation and not respect its laws.”
“They already committed one crime by entering the country illegally,” he added. “None of us in this room would be comfortable if we go speeding down a highway. We’re going to think, maybe I’ll get a ticket.”
Bottom line takeaway from the Times article – Trump is reversing Obama’s immigration policies or lack thereof, and it’s working to stem the flow of illegal immigration.
