Senior Trump aides are holding fast to their goal of strengthening immigration enforcement, the president’s chief campaign promise. They have examined at least two options that would not directly involve Trump, according to two immigration policy advisers to the White House: a lawsuit brought by states, and new legal guidance that details who is a priority for deportation.
While most enforcement of immigration law rests with agencies in the Department of Homeland Security, offices in the Justice Department also play a major role in administering immigration law, including how quickly migrants are deported.
Trump’s advisers will seek to widen that net to include migrants who have been charged but not convicted, suspected gang members and drug dealers, and people charged with such immigration violations as illegal re-entry and overstaying visas, as well as lower-level misdemeanors
“Clinton is the first person in history to run for the presidency who is proposing to abolish the borders around the country that she is supposed to protect,” the Republican presidential nominee said in Houston to family members of people killed by people in the country illegally.
Isn’t it worse, though, if non-racist Trump manipulates racial tension in the electorate for personal revenge and political benefit? If he really isn’t a racist, why is Trump being so racist?
