If you don’t start off with correct premises your argument is going to result in erroneous or ridiculous conclusions. The results will be bad policy or bad decisions. In some cases, you’ll just look stupid. In other cases, catastrophe can result.
The correct premise regarding immigration into the US is that there are legals ways of accomplishing this and illegal tactics. The law states that those who enter the country illegally are subject to deportation. This is not complicated stuff. You don’t have to like it, but it’s the law of the land.
In order to expedite the actions of government, a novel idea if there ever was one, a new policy has been proposed that would empower DHS agents to deport illegal immigrants who have been in the US for less than 90 days without having to go through the immigration courts. Sounds very efficient.
“One of Donald Trump’s core campaign promises was to solve the United States’ illegal immigration problem. In addition to building a ‘big, beautiful wall’, Trump promised to deport those who were in America illegally. A breaking Washington Post report says the President is weighing a new policy to fast track the deportation of illegal aliens.”
The Washington Post fills in the details:
“The Trump administration is weighing a new policy to dramatically expand the Department of Homeland Security’s powers to expedite the deportations of some illegal immigrants.
“Since 2004, the agency has been authorized to bypass immigration courts only for immigrants who had been living in the country illegally for less than two weeks and were apprehended within 100 miles of the border.
Under the proposal, the agency would be empowered to seek the expedited removal of illegal immigrants apprehended anywhere in the United States who cannot prove they have lived in the country continuously for more than 90 days, according to a 13-page internal agency memo obtained by The Washington Post.
“The new guidelines, if enacted, would represent a major expansion of the agency’s authority to speed up deportations under President Trump, who has made border security a top priority.”
This makes excellence sense. If someone comes across the border illegally, they have no right to be here and should be sent home. That’s the law. That Mr. Trump wishes to expedite the process of sending these illegals home saves time and government resources.
It’s not like he would be imposing any extra-judicial punishment since punishment is not involved. They came across the border illegally, so we are going to return them home.
This is so obvious and straightforward, only liberal could conjure a reason to object.
