    Mr. Rappaport's articles are distinguished by a generally supportive view of Donald Trump and his administration to date.

    For a different perspective on our 45th president, supported by his quotations and actions that are a matter of public record, and almost always backed up by links to specific relevant media reports or related material, readers can look up my own comments on ilw.com.

    My latest one, posted on July 29 and dealing with the president's dangerous and inflammatory calls for the use of violence by immigration agents and other police officers, recalling not only his previous incitements to violence against protesters at his rallies and his support for the use of torture during his campaign, but also earlier eras of violence against racial minorities in Nazi Germany and during the segregation era in America, can be accessed at:

    My thanks and appreciation to Nolan for providing links on this site to his own articles so that I can offer an alternative, entirely legitimate and fully supported viewpoint to Nolan's many readers concerning the policies, statements and actions of America's chief executive with regard to immigration.

    I don't view myself as necessarily being supportive of President Trump. I believe that our immigration laws should be applied as written, and I am disturbed by the way Roger and others attack Trump for doing that. My suggestion to Roger and his kindred spirits is to lobby for changes in the way the law currently is written instead of carping endlessly about how terrible it is to enforce them.

    In fact, I do not like the way IIRIRA changed the Immigration and Nationality Act, but instead of attacking the president who signed IIRIRA into law (Bill Clinton) with endless character assaults, I have written two major, comprehensive immigration reform bills that would reverse the damage that IIRIRA has done, one for John Conyers and another for Sheila Jackson Lee. The one I wrote for John Conyers was the basis for the Fix '96 campaign that old folk like myself and Roger will remember.

    The Restoration of Fairness in Immigration Law Act (The FAIRNESS Act),
    https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/106/hr4966/text, for Mr. Conyers; and

    the Save America Comprehensive Immigration Act,
    https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/109/hr2092, for Ms. Jackson Lee.

    Without question, Nolan deserves to be praised and commended for his efforts to change the immigration laws in the past in order to mitigate some of their harshness and injustices. This is a record that he can truly be proud of.

    But there is much more at stake than merely "enforcing" the immigration laws, as Nolan claims. There are serious issues of policy, of use of executive discretion, and also, of whether the laws should be changed to make it harder for immigrants who are now allowed to enter the US legally to continue to do so in the future - as recommended in Trump's August 31, 2016 immigration speech and his much more recent "Buy American, Hire American" executive order, which contemplates possibly making major changes in the immigration laws in order to reduce legal immigration (mainly from outside Europe).

    There are also legitimate questions as to whether promoting obvious falsehoods about immigrants in general, such as that most Mexican immigrants are "criminals" and "rapists" and that most or all Muslim immigrants are predisposed to terrorism because of their religion, and then developing policies based on those falsehoods, qualifies as genuine enforcement of the law.

    How interested was Trump in enforcing the laws prohibiting police brutality in his July 28 speech urging immigration officers to be "rough" on arrested immigrants, even if that means refusing to protect them against head injuries?

    That is not enforcing the laws of America. It is enforcing the laws of Nazi Germany, North Korea, Russia or China - or if Nolan prefers, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia or, perhaps, Pakistan.

    The latest news is that law enforcement officials all over America are condemning Trump's endorsement of illegal police brutality in urging immigration and other law enforcement officials to be "rough" with criminal suspects, even if that means exposing them to head injuries in the course of arrest, in his July 28 Brentwood, New York speech.

    and advocated using torture, in direct violation of federal and international law

    as law enforcer, Nolan? What are you talking about?

    I don't know what Trump said about police activities, but if the way his comments on immigration topics are distorted is any indication, it is very likely that what he said on this topic isn't accurate either.

    Frankly, I am not willing to follow everything Trump says the way Roger does. I wonder sometimes how much time Roger spends thinking about Trump.

    I'm retired and I have difficulty finding the time to research and write an article once a week. Roger is still working, has a successful immigration practice in New York City, and he finds the time to write almost daily blogs about Trump. Truly amazing.

    Nolan is a very busy man too, and I appreciate and am honored by the careful attention he has been giving to my comments about our nation's 45th president, as well as Nolan's taking the time to respond to them.

    I have nothing further to add on this point, except the following link to a July 31 article by former US Labor Secretary Robert Reich, which I am sure that Nolan will appreciate and enjoy, almost as much as our president no doubt would himself if he had time to read it.
