July has been a big month for President Trump. And it has only been seven days!
Jobs are increasing and the number of countries who won’t take back their illegals is decreasing.
According to a new report from the Washington Examiner:
The Trump administration has bolstered its campaign to deport criminal illegal immigrants by getting countries to stop blocking the transfers and take them back, according to key Homeland Security officials.
Led by its success in getting Iraq to shift gears, the administration is looking to cut the number of “recalcitrant nations” even further as it speeds up the arrest of illegal immigrants and visa overstayers who have criminal records.
“It is big news. It shows that some of these countries see that they can’t get away with stiff arming us anymore, that there will be consequences,” said Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said the Obama and Trump administrations, in a combined effort from the departments of state and homeland security, have cut the number of recalcitrant nations in half.
This is important news, but not just because the number of countries has decreased and deportation has increased.
Instead, I think the more important message is that “countries see that they can’t get away with stiff-arming us anymore…there will be consequences.”
Our word is our word.
If President Trump has made this priority–it will be and stay a priority.
The United States is replacing the “you-better-be-careful finger wag” with real consequences. Other countries are responding and respecting our words.
Despite Trump’s success, the courts are still getting in the way of carrying out deportations, though.
For example, last month, “courts blocked the administration from deporting more than 1,000 Iraqis with horrific criminal records, claiming they might face threats back home.”
You mean, they did terrible, awful things and they might be punished for that?
When did the United States become a sanctuary for the world’s criminals?
How about we get back to the rule of law and treating law-abiding people the right way? Please and thank you.
