TRUMP ON IMMIGRATION

Rate this Entry
by Maria Schneider

PART ONE OF SERIES: THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES ON IMMIGRATION REFORM

DONALD TRUMP

Donald Trumpís immigration reform plan is centered on three principles:
1. A nation without borders is not a nation.
2. A nation without laws is not a nation.
3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation.

BORDERS

The most well-known of Mr. Trumpís immigration proposals is to build a wall on the Mexican/American border and ensure Mexico pays for this wall. Mr. Trump proposes to obtain this payment from Mexico by:
  • Impounding all remittance payments derived from wages earned by workers who are illegally in the US
  • Increase fees on all visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats
  • Increase fees on all border crossing cards
  • Increase fees on all TN visas
  • Increase fees at ports of entry to the US from Mexico


LAWS

Mr. Trump intends to implement the following actions to ensure current American immigration laws are enforced:
  • Triple the number of Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) Officers
  • ICE Officers will work with local gang task forces; ICE Officers must place detainers on any undocumented immigrants they encounter in the jails and prisons
  • Require e-verify for all employers; currently e-verify is an optional government program
  • Mandatory deportation of all foreign nationals with any criminal history
  • Discontinue catch-and-release programs; at present individuals apprehended at the border are detained and then paroled into the US until an immigration hearing. Mr. Trump proposes detention until the hearing.
  • Individuals who overstay the term of their I-94 card will be subject to criminal penalties
  • Cut off federal grants which fund any sanctuary city programs
  • End birthright citizenship; children of immigrants born on US soil would no longer be US Citizens


SERVE ITS OWN CITIZENS

Mr. Trump contends that our immigration policy has destroyed Americaís middle class. As a result, his reform proposals seek to control the admission of new low-earning workers to the US. Mr. Trumpís specific policy proposals for long-term reform include:
  • Increase prevailing wages for H-1Bs
  • Require companies to hire American workers first
  • Require immigrants to prove, before entering the US, that they can pay for their own housing, healthcare, and other needs
  • Eliminate the J-1 training visa and replace it with a resume bank for inner city youth
  • Increase standards for admission of refugees and asylum-seekers
  • Immigration moderation: before new green cards are issued to foreign workers abroad, there will be a pause where employers will have to hire unemployed workers already in the US

    I may vote for Trump, but only because I am a never Hilary voter. His proposals to raise money are stupid and mostly contrary to current practice or law. Fees for are reciprical, any fee we charge Mexicans will be charged to U.S. citizens. I'm pretty sure there is no fee for diplomats. If we raise fees on border crossing cards, Mexico may impose a fee on American visitors. Even worse, Mexico could stop accepting Mexicans being deported without a passport. Most countries require proof of citizenship before their citizens are accepted back upon deportation. Mexico is an exception. We could pay for a wall with the money it would cost to detain illegal Mexicans if Mexico required us to obtain a Mexican passport for each Mexican deported. Bridge fees are not U.S. fees, but local fees charged by the owner of the bridge, often a U.S. city that paid for the bridge to be built. Trump has some really stupid people advising him.

    I hope to get an interview with one of Mr. Trump's advisers next month. I have been asked to prepare proposals for him. My proposals are much better than anything mentioned above.

    Thanks Retired INS.

    My primary problem with Trump's immigration plan -- and many of his plans -- is that he seems to think that people on act in response to sticks and not carrots. A balanced immigration plan that mixes carrots and sticks seems more likely to be supported by the US public -- and more likely to actually work.
