The fear may work for a while. But as the actuality becomes clear it will fade. He may actually get some reduction in the illegal alien population in 2017...but come 2018 and the real numbers surfacing it goes away.

Tooth fairy stuff. BP and ICE struggle at present to hire enough to cover their losses. The 2017 plan has a 100 or so new hires. The 15K new would take many years and probably is not doable even if Congress puts enough money in the budget...which is unlikely to happen.

All you folk have going is fiction on fiction on fiction.

They can't find qualified applicants now, the job doesn't pay crap and 90% of the work is boring and mundane. The most qualified LE candidates go to work for local or state police, not ICE.

An internal memo in February from Kevin McAleenan, acting director of Customs and Border Protection, revealed that Border Patrol was able to vet and hire only about 40 agents a month last year despite aggressive efforts to streamline the hiring process.

Reports this year that Customs and Border Patrol might stop using polygraph tests, intended to ferret out unqualified agents, drew a storm of criticism. So did the reason: Two out of three new applicants had failed the lie detector.

Trump wants to ramp up deportations, but ICE probably won

Find a post where I suggested Trump could not win. I would certainly have said it unlikely. I had enough faith that the US would not elect an idiot to believe Trump would lose. But no I never reached the conclusion he could not win...merely that it was improbable.

And of course Trump is proven as inept at immigration as he is at everything else. You poor folks just don't seem to be able to perceive reality.

If we really decided to and really went out to recruit and spend the money in 15 years or so we could likely remove most, though not all, of the illegal aliens. But we have no intention of doing that.

That is why you guys are fiction on fiction on fiction. You actually have nothing but hope...built on fiction.

That goes BOTH ways there:

Many illegal aliens THOUGHT they were gonna get their amnesty after 8 years of Obama. He played their kind. Period.

Sure, unlawful presence isn't generally a crime (of course, it generally becomes a crime if you're unlawfully present after being deported). But illegal entry is a crime. Always. While many in this country didn't enter unlawfully, a great many did do so.

I bet that was a real blow to some egos after 911 huh? When BP became front and center over local LE.
