Trump keeps his promises on immigration
There has long been a chorus of naysayers in the comments insisting that Trump would run away from his immigration platform, never build the wall, etc.
But Trump continues to embrace it. Immigration was a key theme of his speech last night. He’s going to build a wall, he will “immediately suspend immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism,” he’s going to stop illegal immigration, a great deal of time was spent on creating a picture of the crime and anarchy caused by illegal immigration, and he also followed my advice to tie immigration to jobs (because immigration lead to more workers which leads to higher unemployment and lower salaries).
The main reason why the mainstream media talking heads are outraged at Trump after his speech is because he “doubled down” (or so they said) on his immigration talk. The liberals are afraid that Trump will succeed on this, and they hate him for it, and they greatly fear his presidency.
I have no doubt that President Trump will try to make good on his immigration promises. For the most part, enforcing the immigration law doesn’t even require Congress to do anything, the laws and the money to enforce them are already there (even the suspension of immigration from compromised countries), there is just no desire on the part of the Obama administration to do anything about illegal aliens except to give them amnesty.
He will need Congress to help him build a wall, but if he wins the election, it’s going to be seen as a mandate by the voters to build a wall, so I suspect that Congress will give it to him. The actual building of a wall is just a big construction project.
