Enforce the law currently on the books.

Don't understand why people have a hard time with this?

Trump said he's going to do what Obama and Bush did.

Trump said he will build the wall and Mexico will pay for it.

He has never talked about what it is going to take for the federal government to take the private land along the borders.

What happens when Mexico will not pay for it?

So long as undocumented workers continue to be employed by small businesses and individuals, they will come.

This is not a partisan issue.

It has not mattered who sat the oval or held the majority. They did nothing and that's no accident.

Nothing has precluded states from mandating all employers use e- Verify for all employees. Yet only a handful of states of done so. What's up with that?

Yes well the SC says it does. So we have to use that as the basis for things.

Trump said he would deport illegals just as Bush and Obama did (at least before he implemented DACA and DAPA).


Congress already approved the 700 mile wall along the most porous areas of our border. If private land were an issue they wouldn't have approved it.


By discontinuing aid to Mexico they would think twice about not "helping" to build the wall.


"Illegal aliens" would not come for jobs if e-verify were mandated in every workplace. Along with that they need to be denied benefits and birthright citizenship for their kids. Illegal immigration problem solved.

Um no, the SC did not bestow the exact same rights to illegal aliens as citizens nor does our Constitution.

This has been discussed SO MANY TIMES!

He has already said months ago that he wouldn't have a deportation force but enforce the current immigration laws and build the much, much needed WALL.

Need I go through my stray cat scenario again? I think so. The neighbor was putting out cat food for a stray cat. Soon, many stray cats started to show up. She had not planned and didn't have the resources to feed the ever increasing population of cats. She quit putting cat food out. The stray cats left.

We have laws that should be enforced and employees being told to "stand down" rather than do their jobs.

From what I have read it is the Democrats that are bucking e-verify not the Republicans. Trump mentions using e-verify on his website.
