And for those of you who do not know, there are millions upon millions of undocumented, illegal immigrants which enter the land of the free and the home of the brave every year. You can read more about this here. Almost four million of them are under the age of 18. In short, president Trump has offered protection for individuals in which is referred to as "Dreamers" who are undocumented immigrants age 18 and under. Our president also made the promise not to harm any of the children. This was recently revealed in a 13-minute speech by the president earlier this afternoon.
"$800 million in urgent humanitarian aid, $805 million for drug detection technology to help secure our ports of entry, an additional 2,750 border agents and law enforcement professionals. 75 new immigration judge teams to reduce the court backlog," Trump shared in his speech earlier today. "A mechanism to allow Central American minors to apply for asylum in their home countries" he added.
“The radical left can never control our borders. I will never let it happen.”
“Liberals care more about illegal immigrants than they do about our own citizens. It's time to put America First,” Trump shared in a recent ad. Marking day 29 (four weeks and one day) since Trump shutdown the government, I think it is very clear our president is not going to allow anyone to disprove his plan.
Although a lot of democrats say Trump is throwing a temper tantrum and is acting immorally by shutting down the government, I truly believe it is both Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi who are being quite egotistical and immature. Refusing to accommodate with the president's request for funding the wall, after both politicians originally had the same interest in funding the wall, proves they glorifying their own ego and self righteous thoughts on the issue. Here is an interesting video featuring Schumer back in 2009 and here is Pelosi several years ago proving why she agrees with Trump on border security.
Creating only polarization and backlash, I think it is very clear both Schumer and Pelosi dislike Trump, as it is also evident they will not compromise with his request, making it difficult for hundreds of thousands of government workers and their families. The truth is, this is not a manufactured problematic issue which Pelosi, Schumer and their supporters believe, this is an ongoing matter and will only continue if they repudiate it. In addition, these people demanding so much from Trump.
What is wrong with this picture? Why are they ignoring our president and treating him this way? Especially when he wants what is best for our nation. What is the reason Pelosi and Schumer want to continue to reject the president's efforts and initiatives? Is it because Schumer negotiated with Trump last year regarding the wall and it fell through? Why is Trump being punished for listening to his advisors? He cares about the people, not just himself.
It is clear both Pelosi and Schumer share the same views, so why are they refusing to acknowledge Trump's requests for wall funding? These are the same people who are accusing him of using the lives of youth as bargaining chips when they clearly shared the same thoughts on immigration years ago.
Not only does our economic and labor market suffer due to illegal immigrants entering our country, both poverty (this archived article by Giorgio di Pietro is a good read) and overpopulation are increased immensely. This also creates a divide and a high risk for war and asylum (this archived article is a good read regarding this) for these people. These problems exclude drug trafficking, human trafficking, kidnapping and rape, which are modestly baffling and occur as a result. Now I am not saying every undocumented immigrant promotes crime nor is a criminal, but they do make an impact on both the economic and labor markets, as they do increase poverty, promote overpopulation and create polarization and segregation. And when I refer to immigrants, I am referring to those who are here illegally.
Why is building a wall such a big issue? Instead of attacking Trump, why not question him and his motives. Why not address ongoing issues directly to him? Why waste your energy hating him? Sure he can be a loose cannon, but this problem is extant and should never be overlooked. With that said, compromise should never divide this country.
Separating fact from fiction, I commend president Trump for wanting to enforce the immigration issue and proposing a solution and a positive resolve for the American people. The United States is the country of life, of liberty and of happiness. It is the melting pot of the planet. I believe everyone has the right to come to America, as long as they do it legally.
