    I think the point of my article is that the EOs do very little. The rhetoric surrounding the EOs is designed to frighten people. Given the level of fear, I do not think it is a fair comparison to speeding tickets. Plus, many people who are not breaking the law in any way--such as many asylum seekers--are being terrorized as well. Thank you for the comment, Jason

    If by "terrorist tactics" you mean making people here illegally fear deportation, I think you are absolutely correct. That is what Trump is trying to do. But isn't that the objective of all law enforcement measures? Police ticket a small percentage of the people who drive too fast on the highways hoping to make the rest of the drivers afraid to speed for fear of getting a ticket too.

    Obama did the opposite. He gave the world the impression that once an undocumented alien has crossed our border and reached the interior of the country, he is "home free." He doesn't have to fear deportation unless he is convicted of a serious crime. For a more complete explanation, see my article, "With Obama's immigration legacy, Trump inherits 'home free magnet' (December 28, 2016),

    Muslims are not the only people being terrorized by Trump's executive orders.

    I am getting more than my share of calls from legal immigrants who are neither Muslims nor from the parts of the world affected by Trump's orders, but who are still terrified to travel outside of the United States for fear of not being able to get back in.

    If immigrant-hating Jeff Sessions, who is being opposed for confirmation by over 1,100 law school professors in every state in the union that has a law school (only Alaska does not), becomes the next Attorney General, as appears likely, opponents of all immigration from outside Europe who would like to return to the whites-only immigration patterns that existed before 1965 (which Sessions also wants to do according to his January 2016 immigration proposal to the 114th Congress), may soon be dancing over the corpse of America's entire legal immigration system.

    Jason, I don't think you understand the objection Trump has made to Syrian refugees. The FBI, DHS, and others have said that they can't do background searches in Syria. That means the we have no way of confirming anything they say. So long as that is the case, Trump is not going to let them into the country.

    Tell that to the families of people in Europe who have lost loved ones in terrorist attacks. According to PEW, most Europeans blame the refugee crisis for the terrorist attacks that have spread across Europe. The refugee crisis is being blamed for the terrorist attacks in Europe (August 2, 2016), [COLOR=rgb(0.000000%, 0.000000%, 100.000000%)],0802-Rappaport.pdf [/COLOR]

    The latest was today when a terrorist drove a large truck into a crowd of people in Germany. You can explain to them that the number of terrorists is a very, very, very small percentage of the total refugee population. That will make them feel better.

    Jasan, you seem to be saying that no one has proven that refugees are a danger to our national security, so we should let them in. But with immigration law, the burden of proof is on the person seeking admission (or whoever is advocating on his behalf), not on the American government officials who have to decide who to admit.

    Trump has virtually absolute power over refugee admissions. If he thinks Syrian refugees or any other groups of refugees are a danger to our country, he can keep them out with a written order saying he thinks they are a danger and that he is suspending their admissions indefinitely.

    If you don't want that to happen, you should be giving reasons for thinking that it is safe to let them in, which isn't going to be possible for refugees from countries that we we can't get information from.

    What about the threat to our democracy from the incoming new president and his circle of white nationalist advisers?

    Huffington Post reports today that 15,000 lawyers have already signed a letter demanding that Trump rescind the appointment of his bigoted new White House senior adviser, Breitbart News chief Stephen Bannon, a self-styled nationalist and "protector" of the "traditional", "Judeo-Christian West" (according to statements he made at a Vatican symposium in 2014).

    We all know what that could mean in terms of immigration policy:
    Non-white, non-Christian (or Jewish), non- European immigrants need not apply for admission to the United States.

    Hopefully, many more lawyers will sign this letter. It is certainly a good beginning.

    The risk I took became the best decision I have ever made in my marriage. I took the risk by contacting lord Abu spell caster to help bring back my husband who left for almost a year, after all my failed attempt.

    I stopped trusting people especially on the internet after someone almost brainwashed my sister to sell our home when she was searching for true lover. We were so lucky to stop her. I made up my mind never to pay attention to anyone trying to help. But something inside of me forced me to search for solution online and I was lucky to receive help from lord Abu.

    He proved me wrong that there are still good spell caster out there by genuinely casting the love spell which brought my husband back within 5 days. lord abu was my last hope and he proved his true power even with my sister, she welcomed her first child after 4years of marriage. Everything said about lord abu and his work are true, he taught me so many ways to deal with any forms of pressure in life. So glad am redeemed spiritually. his eamil address again is or website

    We would all, for the sake of America, like to give Trump the benefit of the doubt and assume that his immigration policies in asylum, refugee and all other areas of immigration will be driven by rational considerations, not solely by a desire to reward the white nationalist voters who helped him win the White House.

    His promise in his November 8 victory speech to be president of all Americans, without regard to race or religion, was a hopeful sign in that direction.

    But Trump's reliance on immigrant-hating Republican advisers such as Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and, reportedly, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, together with the wild and inflammatory remarks Trump has made about non-white immigrants during his campaign, and the two decades of Republican agitation and legislation against mainly non-white immigrants that preceded Trump and, arguably, led to his nomination and election as president, are less hopeful signs for the future.

    Thank you Roger - I agree with what you say (that we need more political discourse on ilw and that Trump is an emergency). My only quibble is that I do not think he is honest about certain things - taxes, ties to Russia, treatment of women. I also fear that he might win, and wonder what it will feel like to have David Duke marching down Pennsylvania Avenue in celebration.

    My name is Joy Lopes, I never thought I will smile again, My husband left me with two kids for one year, All effort to bring him back failed I thought I'm not going to see him again not until I met a lady called Jesse who told me about a spell caster called Dr.Miracle, She gave me his email address and mobile number and I contacted him and he assured me that within 48 hours my husband will come back to me, In less than 48 hours my husband came back started begging for forgiveness saying it is the devils work, so I'm still surprise till now about this miracle,i couldn't conceive but as soon as the spell was cast,i became pregnant and gave birth to my third child(Taylor) if you need any assistance from him you can contact him via:Email (MIRACLESPELLHOME@YAHOO.COM),, or you can also contact him through his website,,,,,,,

    The above post by Jason Dzubow is an avowedly political comment which Immigration Daily should be encouraging and publishing more of, not fewer of, especially between now and an election which is only about 3 weeks away and could determine the future of American democracy and of our immigration system for a generation to come, if not for the next 50 or 100 years. Despite his recent sinking in the polls, Donald Trump is still a viable candidate for president with a very real chance of winning, particularly if some major negative event comes along involving Hillary Clinton which is always a possibility.

    Even though no one could mistake me for a Trump supporter, I have to say one thing in his favor as a candidate. He has been very honest and open about who he is and what he stands for. Despite ongoing reports of urging by his advisers and supporters to adopt a different, more restrained and conciliatory persona, he has insisted on showing his true self and sharing his true outlook on the world and agenda for America with the public. What you see with Donald Trump is what you get, possibly more than any other presidential candidate I can remember, and I have been following presidential elections ever since I was taken to a rally as a child in 1948 for a president whose name, coincidentally, also began with the letters "Trum".

    Unfortunately, the downside is that the reality of Donald Trump and his immigration agenda is not a pretty one. Ever since he launched his campaign last year with vicious attacks on Mexican immigrants, calling them "criminals" and "rapists", and then called for a total ban on immigration by Muslims from around the world, he has based his appeal on hatred directed against non-white minorities.

    He has shown a typical dictator's rage at being criticized or contradicted and has threatened severe retaliation against anyone and everyone who opposes him, while doing everything possible to humiliate and revile them.

    These are no idle threats, coming from a candidate who openly calls for the use of torture a "heluva" lot worse than waterboarding and for sending American citizens to Guantanamo, both of which statements are a matter of public record and to which I have provided links in some of my previous comments about Trump.

    For anyone who cares about the viability of our immigration system as we know it, Trump's agenda is, to use one of his own favorite expressions, a "disaster". It involves mass deportation on a scale unknown in this country's history to date, a Wall against one of America's best neighbors and trade partners to keep out unwanted non-white immigrants, a modified Muslim ban based on country of origin (hint - Muslim ones) and on sending the shamefully full peaceful, law-abiding Syrian refugees who have been legally admitted to America back to dictatorship and terror-torn Syria in violation of international law.

    And oh, yes, Trump also wants to abolish two pillars of our legal employment-based immigration system, H-1B visas and labor certification green cards (also well documented - if anyone wants the link I will provide it), as well as calling to amend our constitution to take US citizenship away from millions of American-born children based solely on their parentage.

    I am not even bringing up general character and fitness matters such as his despicable actions and statements toward women, his appalling "birther" lie against President Obama and, by extension, all African-Americans, his taxes, his reliance on the Big Lie about almost every issue imaginable, his (at least a few) kind words for reviled dictators such as Vladimir Putin, Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong Un, and many other things that go beyond strictly immigration-related matters.

    If this is the kind of America someone wants for himself or herself, and for his or her children or grandchildren, then by all means he or she should vote for Donald Trump - or for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein, which amounts to the same thing.
