A Sensible Immigration Strategy

Donald Trump has become the most popular Republican presidential candidate primarily for his anti-establishment posture against what is seen as a do-nothing Congress. What has attracted the most attention from the voting public is his stance against illegal immigration. He has said he will stop it and reverse the trend by building and wall and deporting entire families of illegal immigrants.

While this rhetoric has struck a chord with the public it’s important to look at what a president can and can’t do.

    I guess he should deport himself,his ancestors come from Europe illegally to this continent.

      How were they illegal?

        You are right the Europeans were invited by the government to come and do the work to open up the country. Surprisingly the Europeans never took anything from the government and worked damn hard to make a good life for themselves, not like the garbage coming now. I hope Trump wins and I am Canadian. Canada needs someone here, running in our government to protect the people of Canada, only nobody here has the balls to do it and that is a shame.

    • As president, Trump may not be able to send them all back. But he sure can set a policy that stops the flow, especially from Muslim population groups.

      That will be huge.

      And, Maurixio Garciasanchez is an unhappy troll with a bitch about Western Civilization. Typical – all bitches – no solution – whining liberal.

      Maxi… we are all from Kenya

    • lolwut?

      Well if you’re mad, you can always go back to Asia.

      Maybe Trump will lend you one of his planes.

    The writer in this article is trying an old dodge; the “all-or-nothing” defense.
    Since it’s impossible for Trump to expel all 11 million refugees then he must be a failure.

    So if he only deports 2.5 million that’s a bad thing? Doesn’t sound bad to me.

    Then the writer says that Trump would have to fight some local regional and state governments. Yes, he would. BUT!! He would also have the full and enthusiastic cooperation of others.

    Another columnist/media scumbag who is scared that his power base is slipping away. Fuck him.

    They invaded this continent, no one gave them the green light to came here killed the natives take their lands .

    • G

      I see……. Trump’s parents invaded america. – Right.

      As for Europeans defeating the Indians. It’s called war. Don’t like it?
      Tough shit.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        War? The natives never stepped in Europe, the Euros came over here as invaders and took their land illegally so who is the real illegal here?

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Because the Aztecs were assholes.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            So the Mayans too , their intelligence at that particular was that they developed one of the most accurate calendar , 10 times better than the one the illegal Euros had.

          • ThomasB

            So smart they didn’t come up with the radical concept of the wheel. No way they could ever have progressed as a society without that.

          • mobuyus

            Sacrificing your youth and others to the gods is not a sign of intelligence you moron. Getting stoned out their gourds and killing each other was the only thing they were ever any good at.

          • BillyHW

            You don’t need that beating heart, do you?

        • mobuyus

          The Chinese claim they were here first. Every Indian nation was at war with every other tribe, clan or nation. Should Indians have been left alone to drag all their possestions behind them, they had no concept of the wheel and “White man” introduced them to horses and wheels. Europeans came her to an almost empty land peopled with stone age tribes,and brought with them the seeds of prosperity for all to enjoy. If the natives were smart enough to get to rurope they would have. And once there would commence to trying to kill and steal what they could. Are you some sort of cheerleading asshole for the losers of the world?

        • mobuyus

          If it was illegal exactly what laws were they breaking at the time moron?

    • tom_billesley

      Maurixio Garciasanchez. Traditional Aztec name is it?

    • Doug Kursk

      Yes, because the Conquistadors were masters at subduing by pillow fights…wait a moment, you have a Spanish name…

    At least Trump is willing to tackle fixing the broken U.S. immigration system. He doesn’t have every detail worked out but he is the only candidate so far to present any sort of common sense platform on the issue. The others running for Republican nomination seem to be flip-flopping all over the place on the problem.
