It’s amazing how polarizing the subject of illegal immigration can be.
This hot-button issue has drawn a line in the sand and forced people to pick a side. If you’re a Democrat, you’re fine with illegal immigration. If you’re a Republican, you’re against it.
The fundamental difference comes down to whether you believe that illegal immigrants put American citizens in danger – both physically and financially.
But the facts are hard to deny…
Physically, there has been a surge in crimes – many including violence and murder – perpetrated by illegal immigrants. One simple Google search will provide you with some surprising, yet scary, results.
Financially, illegals can hurt American citizens by using much-needed funding that should be set aside for our own people – not another country’s poor.
Not to mention those jobs that often go to illegal immigrants instead of an American. All told, it becomes abundantly clear why SOMETHING needs to be done to stop the flood of what is reported to be more than a million people a year coming into the US illegally.
Conservatives WANT Immigrants to Come to the US… LEGALLY!
Just like Trump says – there are some VERY good people coming across the border as well. People who aren’t looking to cause trouble and just want a chance at a better life.
We understand that things in their home countries aren’t ideal – and we don’t mind if they immigrate to our great nation. After all, we have plenty of room! However, the ONLY thing we ask is that they do so LEGALLY.
It’s only fair that they get vetted and show that they can be a value to our society…
Almost EVERY other immigrant that comes from another country that isn’t a part of the American continents has to do exactly that. Proximity to the US shouldn’t give someone the right to skip the line.
Trump has said the same thing, many times…
Yet the Left STILL views him as anti-immigrant. He’s not. He wants immigrants to come here – LEGALLY.
This isn’t a new view…
OTHER presidents have often said the same thing. With one of the most ardent supporters for immigration reform being the Left’s chosen Messiah, Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama Did WHAT?!
Yes, THAT Obama. An argument could be made that he was even TOUGHER on illegal immigrants than Trump has been. After all, he deported more illegals than Trump has in the same amount of time in office…
Yet the Left still calls Trump the “anti-immigration president”.
That’s probably because of the fact that Obama had his staff DELETE all of his immigration crisis speeches just HOURS before Trump’s inauguration.
Yes, in the very twilight of his time in the Oval Office, Obama had his staffers at Immigration and Customs Enforcement removed literally HUNDREDS of his speeches—some dating as far back as
2004— from their website.
Why do you think that is?
Is it because he wanted to get out in front of something he knew was going to be a hot-button issue for Trump?
He wanted to make himself look better than Trump in some way, even when some of the remarks he’s made have been WAY worse.
According to a watchdog group, The Sunlight Foundation, the transcripts were full of “prepared remarks submitted to congressional committees, often on controversial topics like the standard of medical treatment for detainees, treatment of unaccompanied children, sanctuary cities, drug trafficking, and E-Verify.”
The group also says that all of the references to these speeches were taken down between the early afternoon of January 18th and late into the evening of January 19th – stopping just a few hours before our current president was inaugurated.
What would you say this was?
Just a cleaning up of the office?
Getting rid of clutter, if you will?
Or was it a concerted effort to erase Obama’s REAL stance on illegal immigration?
What was he afraid of?
Is appearing to have the same viewpoint as Trump really THAT much of a problem?
It makes you wonder…
If Obama was sneaky enough to hide something as benign as speeches and transcripts on immigration…
What would he do to information that could REALLY get him in hot water – like his knowledge of Russian election interference?
Either way, gut instinct says AG Barr will get to the bottom of it…
“We expect people who live in this country to play by the rules. We expect that those who cut the line will not be unfairly rewarded.” – Barack Obama
