I am sure that as the 2020 general kicks off then immigration will be more in the news than now…..so let’s look at the topic.
2016 election had Trump promising to end immigration and he had so many plans that he promised he would get on on day one (damn I hate that statement)…..
Does anyone remember all the promises? (Wait here for thought and an answer…..Hahahaha….like that will happen)
How many have been kept?
Yes I know he has started building a wall we do not need……but what abut the others?
Luckily you do not have to use your intellect or Google…..I have the answer ………
President Donald Trump has promised to make big changes on immigration since he was a candidate.
“The truth is our immigration system is worse than anybody ever realized,” the president said.
Among them, build a southern border wall, remove undocumented immigrants, cancel funding for sanctuary cities and other sanctuary jurisdictions, suspend immigration from certain countries, limit legal immigration, and end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
We’ll cover the border wall and DACA in separate stories, but here’s a closer look at some of these other promises.
“There are vast numbers of additional criminal illegal immigrants who have fled, but their days have run out in this country. The crime will stop. They’re going to be gone. It will be over,” the president said.
On the campaign trail, President Trump said he’d remove all undocumented immigrants from the U.S., especially those who had committed crimes. Pew Research estimated there were about 10.5 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. in 2017.
In Trump’s defense….he is NOT the only president to promise and fail to deliver…..most times it was just a way to convince people to vote for them and they never had any intention of carrying the promises forward.
