President Trump Closes Immigration Loophole

President Trump is rolling out a new policy intended on curbing illegal immigration and fake asylum claims. Read President Trump’s statement here:

PROTECTING OUR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY: President Donald J. Trump is taking action to ensure asylum is not a free pass to cross our borders illegally without consequence.

  • President Trump is using the authority granted to him by the Immigration and Nationality Act to manage and protect the integrity of our immigration system and our national sovereignty.
    • Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act states plainly: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
    • Section 215(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act similarly states: “Unless otherwise ordered by the President, it shall be unlawful for any alien to depart from or enter or attempt to depart from or enter the United States except under such reasonable rules, regulations, and orders, and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may prescribe.”
    • Just this June, the Supreme Court upheld the President’s broad statutory authority to implement entry restrictions.
  • President Trump is signing a proclamation declaring that migrants seeking asylum along the southern border must present themselves lawfully at a port of entry.
  • Those who arrive at a port of entry will remain eligible for asylum.
    • Also, additional resources are being deployed to support our ports of entry.

UPHOLDING THE RULE OF LAW: The Trump Administration is rightfully and fully restoring the rule of law on our southern border.  

  • Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) jointly issued a new rule to ensure aliens who are subject to the kind of proclamation that the President is issuing are not eligible for asylum.
  • The joint rule, when paired with the Presidential proclamation, means that any alien who illegally enters our country will be ineligible for asylum.
  • These bold actions will ensure that those seeking asylum respect our laws and our borders.

RESPONDING TO THE BORDER CRISIS: Our Nation is experiencing an unprecedented crisis on our southern border, driven in part by fraud and abuse that has overwhelmed our asylum system. 

  • Our overwhelmed asylum system is contributing to this growing crisis by encouraging aliens with meritless claims to illegally cross our border, claim “credible fear,” and then be released.
    • Aliens are often coached to repeat the “magic words” to meet the initial low bar for credible fear.
  • Prior to 2013, around 1 in every 100 arriving aliens claimed credible fear and sought asylum, but today that number has spiked to 1 in 10.
    • These claims have jumped by around 1,700 percent in the last nine years.
  • There has been an overwhelming surge in aliens from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador (the Northern Triangle) arriving at our border to claim credible fear.
    • Most migrants from the Northern Triangle do not have valid asylum claims, but they are released into the country because our asylum system has become overwhelmed.
    • Nearly two-thirds of aliens who claim credible fear are from the Northern Triangle.
  • Asylum seekers know they will be released into the country and receive work permits while their often meritless claims go through our backlogged immigration courts.
  • Last year, nearly half of the completed cases that involved aliens who claimed credible fear resulted in the alien failing to show up at a hearing or even to file an application for asylum.

I hope this works for a change, it would be nice if we could get this under control. The Democraps must be messing their pants , with this new environment. Everyone knows half or more of the people, just want to work here and send the money home, to their families. The are not in fear of their lives just liars trying to make a buck. Our own citizens need the jobs they are taking, we have less education minded people, with the children of today. They are moving towards farming and other rewarding careers. I am happy for them they are seeing the light.

Excellent! Too long in coming and too bad we can’t prosecute the political snakes who are responsible for betraying us on ILLEGALS since the amnesty of 1986 which was promised to be THE LAST AMNESTY!
We have a working IMMIGRATION SYSTEM that has served us well for many decades. It is NOT BROKEN! What is broken is CONGRESS and the C.S. members who refused to allow our laws to be enforced! They are the political TRAITORS who sold us out for a few pieces of political silver to foreign nationals! Now, because of them we have 20-40 MILLION ILLEGALS OCCUPYING this country who have absolutely no loyalty to it or us who have been paying their bills only the benefits to which they are not entitled! That has to stop and they have to go.
John Dillinger wouldn’t be forgiven because he managed to dodge justice and hold on to the bank money he stole for so long so why should these criminals get a pass?

Been saying our immigration system is fine, it is just the lawmakers who pick and chose what they will enforce and they have also because of their donors opened the public welfare trough to allow the new workers (illegal aliens) of their donors to feed at our expense. And those employers do not pay for the benefits of illegal aliens who work for them, we do in our taxes via public welfare and entitlements. This little deal is a win for the employers, a win for their bought and paid for politicians and a screw us for the tax payers of this country.

Do not be fooled by the liars, cheats, thieves. The rinos who are leaving and screwed us again in the house are as bad as the dem wits. McCain was among the first as his donors were Ag guys in the produce fields of AZ and CA. They wanted the cheap labor and no benefit costs and the politicians obliged them on our backs. The price tag has been horrendous and in the Trillions. Time to end this little deal.

Enforce e-verify nationally and make the punishment stiff for businesses who hire them. Remove the illegal alien hordes from the welfare trough and deport everyone that surfaces. And if caught voting an instant removal from our country and no hope ever of coming back. And build that damn wall. Park the military in bases along that border. And enforce our real immigration laws. As the rancher said, they do work when not cherry picked by the opportunist for political reasons.

This is a wonderful start to stopping illegals from using our own laws against us. How many other countries even consider popping a baby out as a means to gain citizenship … NONE! It’s about time we close these loopholes and STOP the madness. Besides, we owe them nothing and we certainly don’t owe cradle to grave benefits intended for LEGAL citizens who have spent their lives paying into the system, not some kid who has little to nothing to offer us!

Finally a President that is looking out for the best for American Citizens. It look a non-Politician Big Business Savoy to do it and the Democratic Party hates it. They despise Trump for not being Politically Correct one of the Democratic Party’s tools to break down society against each other. The Liberals (snowflakes) love Political Correctness to sooth there sensitivity and thin skin. The Democratic Party hates Trump for not being a lifer Politician who would wheel and deal in the Politicians Sand Box and instead is after all of the crooked Politicians (cleaning the swamp).
