Trump Returns To Hardline Position On Illegal Immigration

PHOENIX (Reuters) – Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump vowed on Wednesday that anyone who is in the United States illegally would be subject to deportation if he is elected, sticking with his hardline position after flirting with a softer approach.

In a major speech in the border state of Arizona, Trump took a dim view of the 11 million people who crossed into the United States illegally, a week after saying many were “great people” who had lived in the country for years and contributed to American society.

He said all people in the United States illegally would have “only one route” to gain legal status ifTrump were to win the Nov. 8 presidential election: “To return home and apply for re-entry.”

“Our message to the world will be this: You cannot obtain legal status or become a citizen of the United States by illegally entering our country,” Trump said.

“People will know you can’t just smuggle in, hunker down and wait to be legalized,” he said. “Those days are over.”

Trump again vowed that Mexico would pay for construction of a “great border wall” between the two countries. He spoke hours after Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto told Trump in a face-to-face meeting in Mexico City that Mexico would not pay for it.

“We will build a great wall along the southern border,” Trump said. “And Mexico will pay for the wall – 100 percent. They don’t know it yet, but they’re going to pay for the wall.”

Trump said at a joint news conference with Pena Nieto that he and the Mexican leader did not discuss who would pay for the wall. Pena Nieto remained silent on the issue at the event, but said later on Twitter he did raise the issue.

“At the beginning of the conversation with Donald Trump I made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall,” Pena Nieto said in a tweet.

HARDLINE RETURN

Trump used the Phoenix speech to clarify his stance on illegal immigration after prevaricating on the issue last week. He returned to the hardline rhetoric that powered him to the Republican presidential nomination over 16 rivals, heartening those conservatives drawn to Trump by the issue.

Ann Coulter, a conservative activist who had fretted that Trump might be softening, tweeted: “I hear Churchill had a nice turn of phrase, but Trump‘s immigration speech is the most magnificent speech ever given.”

Correct The Record, an organization supporting Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the Nov.8 presidential election, slammed Trump.

“Tonight confirmed what we knew all along – there is no ‘softening’,” Correct The Record spokeswoman Elizabeth Shappell said.

Trump‘s “America First” positions are aimed at rallying middle-class people who feel they have lost jobs to illegal immigrants or to the outsourcing of jobs abroad.

However, he may have put himself at risk of limiting his ability to broaden his base of support to include more Hispanic-Americans and more moderate Republican voters who do not think it is possible or practical to crack down on all illegal immigrants.

In his speech, Trump emphasized that his priority would be to  deport those among the undocumented population who have committed serious crimes.

“As with any law enforcement activity, we will set priorities,” Trump said. “Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation. That is what it means to have a country.”

He said he would form a commission to study which regions or countries he would suspend immigration from, saying Syria and Libya would be high on his list. This would be his way of carrying out his proposed ban on Muslims from some countries without getting into their religious affiliation.

Trump said he would also establish a “deportation task force” to identify criminals subject to deportation, would triple the number of federal deportation officers, and increase the number of border patrol stations.

MILD REBUKE, PROTESTS

Trump is trailing Clinton in opinion polls and the New York businessman’s aides hoped the trip would make him look presidential and show he was willing to deal head-on with thorny issues such as relations with Mexico.

Pena Nieto said at the joint news conference with Trump in Mexico City that the many millions of Mexicans in the United States deserved respect. However, he offered only a mild rebuke ofTrump for his rhetoric.

“The Mexican people has felt aggrieved by comments that have been made, but I was sure his interest in building a relationship is genuine,” Pena Nieto said.

A few dozen demonstrators gathered beneath a monument to Mexican independence in the center of the capital to protest against the visit, some holding placards emblazoned with captions such as: “You are not Wall-come” and “Trump and Pena out.”

Trump has been pilloried in Mexico since he launched his White House campaign last year.

Clinton, a former secretary of state, said on Wednesday Trump could not paper over his previous harsh language against Mexico.

“It certainly takes more than trying to make up for more than a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours and then flying home again,” she told a convention of the American Legion military veterans’ group in Cincinnati.

    If that is the case, why are they supporting one of the biggest offenders of all? Nothing that bears the name “Trump” is made in the US by US Workers. All of it comes from Asian sweatshops.

            Because just as they use our services, our services used them. They also help the economy because they spend their money here, they pay sales tax, and they pay into SS and Medicare, but do not get to use those benefits. Violence is in every race not just Mexicans. Those white people that got on stage, could very well be those black families that lost there loved ones to Dylann Roof: “Roof included a manifesto detailing his beliefs on race, as well as several photographs showing him posing with emblems associated with white supremacy. Roof’s photos of the Confederate battle flag triggered debate on its modern display.” So why are we not shutting down or building walls against white supremacist?

            And, if you ever became aware of the actual facts, Patrick, you would see that there is a VERY SMALL percentage of serious crimes. including murders, committed in the United States by these “illegal” immigrants. More crimes are committed by actual U.S. citizens than any other group. But, I guess you don’t really care about the actual statistics…..they probably just confuse your brainwashed mind! We certainly don’t want you to be any more confused….you’re already there!

            Some of the people Trump had on stage were Hispanic and a few had mixed race or Black children. In another event, there was a Black man that lost a good son that he just had talked to on their phones. But you choose to make this an anti-White, racist comment.

            And the cost to American Citizens & Legal Immigrants from the costs of ILLEGAL immigrants, far exceed any gains to us. That is just the excuse supporters of Illegal immigration always use, but not true.

            The topic is Illegal immigration, which by the way, Increases crime & gun violence. We have to solve this issue as a top priority. Do you even recall Eric Holder & Obama’s Fast & Furious, which resulted in criminals & Drug Cartels getting hold of thousands of semi-automatic assault weapons? You need to become really informed correctly before you can make an intelligent comment.

            Patrick, the murderous Fast and Furious investigation was started in Arizona, in 2004, as Operation Gunrunner. Two Arizona ATF offices hoped to sell arms and track them to drug cartels. They never arrested anyone, but they did get the word out. Drug cartels and other international wrongdoers were alerted to how easy it is to get truckloads of high powered weapons in the US without any “paperwork” at all.

            When ATF funding was curtailed at the request of the NRA, this sting operation — that still hadn’t “stung” anyone — was moved to the Justice Department. It was one of many DOJ operations that the new administration inherited and renamed.

            Come on, you know fully well that most Illegals are employed in many more jobs than just picking fruit. And we have had Laws that allowed “temporary seasonal” migrant workers to do that. As for Americans NOT doing those jobs, many had previously until the cheap labor paid to Illegals made them choose other employment, however, the lower waged paid to Illegals or even Legal Migrant workers, is offset by them sending their money back home which is 11 times more there, and MUCH more than they would earn in their home Countries. Also, most receive FREE health care in our clinics and emergency rooms, FREE education in OUR taxpayer funded public schools, and many receive other types of welfare. So glad to see you criticize Americans but praise Illegals!

            FACTS: Economists — at least the ones who aren’t working for anti-immigration research groups — have struggled to find a correlation between native employment and immigration. A 2006 Pew Hispanic Center study found that while Trump is right that immigrants tend to be younger and less educated than their native counterparts (U.S. citizens), “no consistent pattern emerges to show that native-born workers have suffered or benefited from increased numbers of foreign-born workers.” What Trump is saying is a fallacy, but you believe what the GOP wants you to believe.
            Additionally, he said that “these illegal workers draw more out from the system than they will ever pay in” FACT: This is true for undocumented immigrants just as it is true for Americans: Taxes do NOT cover what the government spends on its citizens. It’s worth noting that immigrants in the U.S. collectively contribute nearly $12 billion to state and local tax coffers. A 2016 report estimated that more than a third of undocumented immigrants are homeowners paying property taxes; over half of them also pay income taxes, and as many as three-quarters of undocumented immigrants pay in to the U.S. Social Security System — an investment that they will not receive a return on unless they become citizens.”
            Just thought I’d throw out a few REAL facts to counteract Trump’s line of BS in his recent immigration speech in Arizona.
            But, you just go ahead and believe all the BS that you’re told….soak it up! It just goes to prove that you fail to do any research and just willy nilly believe everything that’s thrown at you by the Trumpster!

            I hardly think so, studies have already been done showing that even if Illegals had an almost 100% wage increase, the price increase for a head of lettuce would only increase $0.10. I think most of us are willing to pay that. Once again, you badmouth American Citizens but praise Illegals. Something terribly wrong with that.

            I’ve NEVER bad mouthed ANY American citizen….I just mentioned the truth….very few, if any, American citizens would take a job picking fruits and vegetables in our fields or picking nuts from the trees here, especially at the pay that the farmers pay the “alleged” illegals that are here (with valid visas, by the way). That isn’t “bad mouthing” anyone….it’s the truth! As for the price of lettuce…..I have a friend who owns a lettuce ranch in Salinas, and he KNOWS much more about how much the price of lettuce would go up if wages went up for the pickers….and it certainly is a hell of a lot more than 10 cents!!!

            We don’t need or want ILLEGAL labor, just “documented” seasonal migrant workers, that return home with the wages they earned, which is worth about 11 times more in Mexico, & other countries, where they can live a Middle-Class life & help their families.

            I can’t copy & paste on this tablet, but there is much information on the very small increase in produce, even when increasing the wages of field workers. Look it up, but not on a biased site.

        Of course Trump knows that the core of his most loyal supporters are White Supremacists. The slogan, America First, is a dog whistle for them. in 1992, the America First organization was a typical “family values” group. They were heavily Christian, anti-gays in the military, anti-LGBT, anti feminist, and extraordinarily antisemitic. Before 1992, during WWII, America First opposed any participation in the war, and argued against any aid to England, which was under routine attack by German Bombers. This iteration of America First was also extremely antisemitic — in addition to our own homegrown xenophobia and isolationism that are more familiar refrains from Trump camp. The wartime America First lost power after the attack on Pearl Harbor. But the name — America First — still inspires pride and emboldens today’s Alt-Right, our newest iteration of the He-Man, Christian, White Supremacist, Woman Hater Club.
        What tickles me, is that Trump can’t break out of running a Primary campaign. He’s still preaching to the base, to the choir. He couldn’t widen his appeal to the general electorate if you put a gun to his head.
        The disenchanted “RINOs” are flocking to support Sec. Clinton. He never had a black vote. Women detest him, and this immigtation screed in Arizona just chased off the handful of Hispanic and Muslim voters beginning to give him a look.

    What bothered me the most were the parents of those killed by immigrants, the positive part was when one stated that the immigrant was a Russian, and I ask her how is that Southern wall going to keep those Russians out, especially when Trump is cuddling to Russia. My father was killed by a Mexican immigrant, but I don’t blame those innocent American children who have illegal parents. Yes our system need to be fixed and those that commit crimes need to be tracked and implement a way that they cannot come back. But the rest is all hog wash. The US needs immigrants to move forward. They are our neighbors and the Lord says love your neighbor. Let’s break down barriers not build walls.

As for the “alleged” illegals, most of the ones picking our fruit and vegetables are here on valid work visas that is available for people coming over the border to do this work….by the way, work that no American would do because they are “too good” to do any hard labor! Get a life!!

            Every state that produces food crops, or processes meat, fish and seafood for consumers, is heavily dependent on immigrant labor. The state of Alabama nearly bankrupted their agricultural industry when they instituted harsh deterrents to an imaginary “immigrant menace.” The courts halted the most harmful aspects of Alabama’s law, but the state’s farmers and food processors still haven’t completely recovered.

Why didn’t he hire American construction workers…..God knows there are PLENTY of unemployed construction workers in America that he could have hired rather than bring over workers from another country!!! And, why does he send his textile business; i.e., ties, shirts, etc. over to China to produce? Isn’t there other companies in the U.S.A. that could do the work? No, he’s trying to save money by going out and hiring people that he can pay the least amount of money to do his work!!! This is the same thing he keeps saying that he’s against, yet he does it himself and his followers just willy nilly gloss over this fact or figure it isn’t important!!! Seriously?

            Evenly and equally enforcing our laws concerns me.
            Republicans have an aversion to brown people. Texas tried to stop issuing Birth Certificates to the infants of Hispanic mothers, but not German, Chinese, Korean, Laotian, Cambodian, or Vietnamese infants. Mothers and children from crime ridden regions of Central America are detained and deported. White European families are neither detained nor deported.
            Why is there no outraged demand to “Build A Wall” along our northern border as well as the southern one?
            Donald Trump, his Alt-Right supporters, the Alt-Right CEO of his campaign, and the Republican statehouses of every state along the southern border openly discuss their desire to get rid of brown people, and keep them out.

In many of the southern states, as well as here in California, we have many Cambodian and Vietnamese individuals who came over here on temporary visas, but they are still here, working hard, starting businesses, etc., and nothing has been done against them. Kinda questions Trump’s sincerity about getting rid of those alleged “illegal” immigrants. There are many different “illegal” immigrants in this country besides the Latinos!

        I agree that we need to keep a closer watch on people that have temporary visas, but that doesn’t have anything to do with anything he’s suggested. We need MORE judges and MORE commissions to vet people who are here on expired temporary visas. But, the wonderful GOP, in it’s goal to make government smaller, has ended up losing quite a few of these judges, which makes it difficult to do what Trump wants done. Typical GOP stance….smaller government….but they don’t realize that if they make various departments; i.e., the IRS (for example) smaller, it means fewer people (or agents) that can go after the problem cases. As it stands, with the IRS so decimated…..there aren’t enough agents available to go after IRS fraud…..and, in the end, the country loses valuable tax monies that should have been paid! Smaller government is NOT always the answer in most cases! Something the GOP doesn’t seem to understand.

          Please re-read Trump’s own remarks, Patrick. No one here illegally is allowed to stay in the United States. They MUST return to their countries of origin and reapply for re-entry. This is the sticking point with the House of Representatives, too. The Freedom Caucus and their sympathizers specifically DENY citizenship to persons who first arrived here illegally, or over-stayed visas. There are no methods to determine who — if anyone — is “long-term” or “good people.”
          If citizenship provides voting rights. The ultimate goal of the Republican party is to limit voting rights to white voters that may or may not include women.

            — Trump has exposed the racism, misogyny, bigotry and xenophobia that is encouraged and nurtured in the Republican voter base and their information outlets. The terms ‘conservative’ and ‘Republican’ are now widely recognized as being synonymous with these harmful perspectives by formerly non-involved, non-political citizens.

As for your BS comment that “just enforcing OUR laws that millions violated, without respect for OUR laws or citizens,” is another bunch of BS that you’re being led to believe. He gave the implication that undocumented immigrants are more criminal and threaten American lives routinely. However, two studies found that despite high poverty rates — which typically corresponds with high crime rates (for ALL people in the U.S…..not just immigrants) — Latino immigrants in border towns and New York City, respectively, were more law abiding, with lower crime rates, than non-Latino white or black Americans.” So, your comment is a total bunch of crap that you’ve been led to believe because you’re brainwashed into believing everything that Trump says….lies and all!

Meanwhile the Wall will be constructed as well as E-verify, ending sanctuary cities, etc. Most of us have no problem with people like that. If the Democrat Party and Special Interests really wanted this, they could have had so many years ago, but always refused the enforcement procedures for political favors and support, but just implemented the Amnesty .

It won’t get built….Congress won’t approve the billions that it’ll cost to build it (they haven’t approved anything about improving or adding to the wall for several years now….not sure why they would suddenly spend out money now for his stupid idea). Apparently, Trump hasn’t figured out that he can’t just write a check and build a wall….the money actually has to be approved by Congress.

If someone has been here for 20+ years, is law abiding, contributes to society, works and pays taxes like a great many of them do, they should have a means to become citizens without being torn from their homes, jobs, and families and “sent back where they came from.” Trump’s plan will cost $600-$800 billion dollars of taxpayer money.

Trump forgot that there are 20 mil Mexican-Americans and 35 Latino-Americans with relatives still in Mexico and Latino countries. I am told Justice Sotomayor is Latina-American with a lot of relatives in New York. I do not think Trump did a good job other than alienating Mexican-Americans more than before.

    I saw two different Trumps yesterday. The one who tried to behave a little bit while in Mexico but still he insulted his host that they didn’t talk who will pay for the wall. The second Trump I saw was the one who changed one more time his stance on immigration and talked like a person who was having a drink in a Pub. The man is not stable at all. Those who can’t see what the rest of us see, need to be examined as well. It is really depressing watching this man (Trump) talk.

      From what I’ve read, they DID discuss the wall briefly (according to the Mexican president), but glossed over it. Trump didn’t want to admit that the Mexican president reiterated to him that Mexico would NOT pay for the wall in any way, shape or form!!!

        There you go Again, taking the side of Mexico instead of the US. You would rather have Americans pay for the wall, meanwhile have a $49.2 Billion trade deficit with Mexico. Just about every comment you make is anti-American, anti-White, or anti-male. Such a wonderful American Citizen you are. Maybe we can trade you for a Legal Immigrant.

          Americans aren’t going to pay for the wall, and neither are the Mexicans! Trump is blowing smoke and you believe it!!! First of all, Congress will NOT approve the allocation of funds to pay to build the wall….something Trump doesn’t seem to understand. He doesn’t have the checkbook and can’t do whatever he please (as he does as a CEO of his own company)…..he has to deal with the Congress to release funds. They ain’t going to do it!!! No one is going to allow him to build a billion plus dollar wall on taxpayer’s money!!! And NO ONE is going to FORCE the Mexican government to pay for it either! You need to learn how our government works because, like Trump, you obviously have NO idea!
          As for being anti-American, I’m a 26+ year Army veteran and as patriotic as any veteran; secondly, I’m not anti-white and am probably the least racist of anyone you know; and lastly, I’m definitely not anti-male (just anti-you and anti-idiots who know nothing about how our government functions)!

      We need to check daily to see what is current – flip or flop. First he is building a wall and Mexico is paying for it and the more they complain the bigger the wall. Than the other day flip was building a virtual wall, that would stop virtual illegal immigrants, etc and would be paid for with virtual money and now flop is back and the wall is brick and mortal and Mexico is paying for it, but they don’t know it yet. How does flip flop expect to force Mexico to pay for this wall and when they don’t where will he get the money from to build it? Will a Trump company get the contract to build the wall and than he and his family benefit financially?

        He thinks that he can somehow divert monies that are being sent over the wire by husbands and wives here in the U.S. to their Mexican relatives and use that to build the wall. Unfortunately, he doesn’t realize that this is illegal and is actually considered as stealing!!! I seriously don’t think that our government wants our illustrious president “stealing” from people’s bank accounts or wire transfers to their poor relatives in Mexico. It’ll be interesting to see how he plans on getting Mexico to pay for his stupid billion dollar bridge that we don’t need anyway!!! I know many Texas ranchers on the borders in Mexico who, despite the fact that illegals come across their land, do NOT want a wall built on their land. And, if Mexico won’t let it be built on THEIR side of the border, where does that leave Trump? As I said, it WILL be interesting, but I don’t think we have to actually worry because he’s got no chance in hell of getting anywhere near the White House!!!

          ” The United States Chamber of Commerce offers a higher estimate of 14 million American jobs in trade with Mexico.

          In short, Trump’s 22,000 jobs don’t amount to much compared to the 6 million to 14 million Americans who work in trade with Mexico. Mexico-dependent jobs number between 272 and 622 times more than Trump’s payroll.

          On balance, it can be said that trade with Mexico and Mexicans is far more beneficial to the United States and millions of Americans than not.

          Trump insists that Mexico is ripping us off by buying $356 billion in goods and services from us last year and more than a trillion dollars’ worth since 2010.”

    Does this jackass realize that he can’t just willy nilly step into the Oval Office and ORDER 11M illegal immigrants out of the state or ORDER that they start building this so-called ridiculous wall? Does he NOT understand that, unlike a CEO (who owns the company), he does WILL NOT own the United States? Does he NOT realize that he doesn’t hold the country’s checkbook….anything that he does will have to go through Congress, and they’ve voted this BS down several times already. We, as taxpayers, are NOT going to pay for a stupid wall that isn’t needed.
    Additionally, does he NOT understand that by throwing out all the illegal immigrants, who, by the way, do NOT take away jobs from the middle class because the middle class will NOT go out in the fields and pick our country’s produce. This, in turn, will cause many farmers and ranchers to end up going out of business because they won’t have anyone to pick the crops. Therefore, they won’t be growing any crops…..and any product that DOES get picked will end up costing the American taxpayer double what it costs now or we’ll have to import our produce from South America (which we already do).
    Lastly, does he also NOT realize that there have been fewer illegals coming over the border in the U.S. in the past 2-3 years than ever before? And, does he NOT understand that we already deport the criminals that are caught coming over the border. Everything he says he’s going to do is already being done…..so, I’m not sure he understands that he knows NOTHING about how things work in this country and what is already being done in spades! Also, many illegals are staying in Mexico due to the fact that several U.S. industries (i.e., the automobile industry) have opened plants in Mexico that are employing Mexican people at decent salaries…..thus, they can get decent jobs in their own country and no longer have to come to the U.S.! This is why the immigration of illegals from Mexico has dropped significantly in the past year or so.
    As for the stupid wall….NO, the Mexican government is NOT going to pay for it…..they don’t have the money in the first place; and in the second place, they don’t care if their people come across the border to the U.S. This wall, like the one that’s already there, will be paid for by OUR taxpayer money. And, since the GOP congress refuses to raise taxes (thanks to unelected Grover Norquist), we don’t have money ourselves to pay the billion or so that it’ll take to extend this wall (for NO reason at all)!! Additionally, there are parts of the country that the wall cannot be built due to terrain, etc. Again, apparently he has NO idea about this either! I don’t blame the Mexican president for saying Mexico won’t pay for it…..why should they? And, if Trump thinks he can try to take money from illegals who are sending it home to their families, that’s also illegal! That was one of his ideas for getting money for the wall, but it won’t work. It’s illegal to “take” money from anyone who is sending money over the wires to family.
    Needless to say, the more I hear about Trump, but more I realize that he’s a loose cannon and NOT a person that we want running this country. He will end up costing the American public quite ALOT of money doing stupid things that are already being done; i.e., including the vetting of Muslim immigrants coming over to the U.S.
    Okay, done venting….just wanted to voice my opinion on this idiot! Unfortunately most of his followers don’t understand how the government works either or they would KNOW that a lot of what he’s proposing to do won’t be possible!!!

    Of course he is taking the hard line now. The Mexican president had the nerve to stand up to this moron, and you know what happens with the Trump Dump when anyone dares to speak against him. The Mexican people hate him and with good cause. There will be no wall, as Mexico will not pay for it, and the Dumper can’t make them pay for it. Also, there are American landowners all along the border to contend with. So you know that the Dumper will try to bully them. But I don’t think this dumpster will be elected anyway, that is what we MUST do to stop this pissant from ever destroying this country.

    NEVER VOTE FOR TRUMP, HE IS A DANGEROUS PSYCHO !!

They used to listen to what their constituents said and work for us, but apparently now they work for lobbyists from various big businesses….anything that we want or care about doesn’t matter any longer!

            According to Politifact, Obama has removed 1.4 Million Illegals, while Bush had deported 2 Million Illegals. This doesn’t take into account the ones “supposed” to be deported but never actually left the Country, as well as the 2.5 Million Illegals that entered under Obama. He makes it sound good but not in reality.

            And if it’s such a good thing that Obama deported Illegals, why do Democrats get on Trump or any Republican wanting to do the same? Bill Clinton also talked tough on Illegals but talk is one thing, reality another.

    After listening to Trump for over a year now tell everyone that Mexico was not our friend, how the U.S. was under siege by illegal Mexican immigrants, how illegal Mexican immigrants were mostly criminals and rapists sent here by the Mexican government, how NAFTA needs to be torn up as it unfairly benefits Mexico at the expense of the U.S., how illegal Mexican immigrants come here to use our welfare system and bleed the U.S. dry while contributing nothing to the economy, and how he will build a wall making it another 10 feet higher every time Mexicans offend him and how Mexico will pay for it, how he will form a Deportation Force to rid the U.S. of 11 million plus illegal immigrants immediately upon taking office and so much more, I expected that after meeting with the Mexican President, the headlines would read : TRUMP HAS CERTIFIED CHECK FROM MEXICO TO BUILD WALL or MEXICANS APOLOGIZE FOR BEING MOSTLY CRIMINALS AND RAPISTS or MEXICO ADMITS NAFTA IS A SCAM or something similar.
    Instead all we got was brief press conference where Trump was very low energy and appeared to be sick calling Mexicans great people and how we needed to work together for our mutual benefit(what a novel idea). Trump said that payment for the wall wasn’t even discussed. One of his oft-repeated promises and he never even discussed it. Now that’s leadership. However Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto later let us know that Trump was a LIAR when he sent a tweet saying payment for building the Trump Wall was discussed and he told Trump that Mexico would not pay for it. That shows the integrity with which Trump will perform his duties as president.

If taxpayers understood that it was these “illegal” immigrants who are “shoring” up our Social Security and Medicare accounts, maybe they wouldn’t be screaming so loudly with their idiot master!

    Why do journalists continually refer to Trump’s babbling as “a major speech”? Every day for a week now the media have written in anticipation of what his campaign calls “a major speech on immigration,” and after giving it — basically the exact same crap he’s been spouting for a year — they STILL call it “a major speech.”

    Trump has never given a major speech. He’s spoken off the cuff and he’s read from a teleprompter, and he’s blustered in debates and lied slickly in (Fox) TV interviews. But a major speech includes serious, well-thought-out, well-defined, well-written, and well-delivered ideas on a subject of import, and placed in the context of reality — which is so far removed from Trump’s daily life and his campaign’s world-view that it’s laughable to educated, thinking, patriotic Americans.

    A “major speech” indeed; this was more bluster and babble, nothing of substance, not a single detail, and completely at odds with what had been discussed a few hours before in Mexico City.

If you are the product of Illegals having sex in the US, then you are their responsibility, & also Illegal.
