Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly is not messing around.
The removed four-star U.S. Marine Corps general announced new guidelines to fulfill President Trump’s agenda on immigration. They involve prioritizing the removal of criminal aliens who have been charged, convicted or even suspected of DOING crimes. He is calling for an additional 10,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and 5,000 more Border Patrol agents, developing a program that allows local police to act as immigration agents, starting the preparation and construction of the border wall, ending “catch-and-release” and restoring the Secure Communities program.
However, that’s not everything. Kelly and the Trump administration are moving instantly to return aliens to their country of origin. They have created the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office or VOICE. Which is meant to help families affected by illegal immigrant crimes. And they are taking a hard look at aid to Mexico.
It’s very important to notice that so-called “Dreamers,” those brought here prior to age 16 who have not committed crimes and meet other requirements, are not affected by these new orders. But you can bet that liberals and their buddies in the alt-left propaganda media are going to spin and change what these guidelines are all about.
However, if you take an honest look at what President Trump is trying to do, you’ll see it is everything much simple.
He’s securing our borders, trying to stop big crimes against Americans and stop the drugs and guns from entering this country.
They represent people. Your fellow citizens, family members, and neighbors – Americans immediately impacted by illegal immigrant crimes.
In addition to the human toll, American taxpayers are paying a chance for illegal immigrants. According to a study from the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Illegal immigration costs states and local governments $113 billion a year for things like medicine, education, medical treatment, criminal justice costs and public assistance.
However, border states get hit the hardest. California spends $25.3 billion a year on costs related to illegal immigration. If you live in the state of Texas, taxpayers are on the hook for $12.1 billion yearly. That is taxpayer money that is supposed to go to your cities and communities, your educational facilities, your hospitals.
