Trump’s Homeland Security pick ready to deport illegals ASAP

Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Homeland Security promised that he would work to “rapidly” deport illegal immigrants.

“The Congress has passed longstanding laws making foreign nationals without legal status removable from the United States, and it is proper for DHS, like any other law enforcement organization, to faithfully execute the laws on the books,” retired Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly said in a written answer to questions by the Senate Homeland Security Committee as his confirmation hearing started Tuesday.

    That’s the good news.

    Now the bad news: (From Government website)

    The Government of Canada has made it a top priority to re-establish and strengthen our relationship with one of our most important partners, Mexico. To this end, Prime Minister Trudeau today announced Canada’s intention to lift the visa requirement for Mexican visitors to Canada beginning December 1, 2016. Lifting the visa requirement will deepen ties between Canada and Mexico and will increase the flow of travellers, ideas, and businesses between both countries.

    • Yup, and we already have an increase in Mexican asylum seekers.

        And how, exactly, are they planning to get around the wall? Will Canada be sending boats for them and escorting them up the west coast? You guys really need to get rid of imbecile Trudeau.

          True, but we lack any real alternative. We are in the same boat as the Americans were until Trump came along.

        Mexico does not qualify as a state for refugee status claims to be made by migrants from there under the law, so unless these Mexicans are applying to enter as regular immigrants, the public needs to be filing complaints against the government for each and every case in which Mexicans are illegally being granted refugee status.

    Brace yourself for a tsunami of illegal alien sob stories — appealing valedictorians etc. who just want a better life in America. The press never mentions that the jobs illegals take should by law go to citizens.

    Will judges wage war on the law? What do we do with millions of obvious deportables as they wait out their legal challenges? Let them wander about, or lock them up in vast temporary cities in Arizona?

    We need a very short process. For example: Dreamers have admitted their illegal presence, knowing full well it could come back to bite them. If they are 18 they should be able to be bussed out in three days.

      skip the busses, put them in cattle cars and ship them back like mexican produce
