Before every "Constitutional Defender" gets excited about Trump's plan, ask yourselves one simple question, "How?"
1. A nation without borders is not a nation at all. Let's build a wall.
How does Trump plan on funding the construction of such a wall? Mexico will pay for it, according to him, but Mexican officials have shut down his fantasies repeatedly. Mexico has nothing to gain from building the wall, they will not pay for it. The more realistic ways to pay for such a wall are 1) to increase taxes 2) increase the national debt.
2. A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our constitutional system of government must be enforced.
This second point is the most problematic of the three. How does Trump plan to find and deport 11 million people? How much will it cost, and how does he plan on funding the logistical undertaking of deporting 11 million people? He plans to end birthright citizenship. How can you end the 14th Constitutional amendment and pretend to defend the constitution? If we plan to deport United States Citizens because they were born to undocumented parents, let's do it retroactively. If your grandparents or great-grandparents were here illegally, your parents and you should also have to go.
3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation. Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans.
He actually has some valid points here. Wages should increase for HB-1 AND HB-2 visas. I am in agreement with that. Too often, guests workers are paid below the minimum wage and raped and abused by their employers. I too want an America that is safe, so do 11 million undocumented Americans, many of them came to America to escape violence and crime in their own countries. The big question on point number three is this- HOW does he plan to implement his proposed policies and how does he plan to combat the negative consequences of abruptly stopping the green card program?
The only good thing about Trump's immigration plan is that he will now force other GOP and Democratic candidates to issue comprehensive plans on immigration.
