President Trump Signs Two Immigration Executive Orders

President Trump wasn’t kidding about The Wall and cracking down on sanctuary cities:

“Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump on Wednesday started to reshape US immigration enforcement policies via executive action, taking his first steps toward fulfilling some of the most contentious pledges that defined his campaign — building a border wall and speeding the deportation of undocumented immigrants.

Trump signed two executive orders directing the construction of a wall on the US-Mexico border, boosting border patrol forces and increasing the number of immigration enforcement officers who carry out deportations. The orders also call for stripping sanctuary cities of federal grant funding and announced sweeping new criteria that could make many more undocumented immigrants priorities for deportation. …”

Here’s a taste of the tears at Slate:

“For 11 million undocumented immigrants living and working in this country and anyone who cares about them, it feels like a terrifying day.”

No, it was a glorious day for those who have been waiting for decades to see this happen. Luis Gutierrez looked like he was about to cry tonight on All In With Chris Hayes. Also, #NoBanNoWall is trending on Twitter as I write this, so the Left is already having its predictable tantrum.

Note: I understand that more is coming soon on the Muslim ban. I’m satisfied for now (we’ve got years to get everything we want), but I hope President Trump doesn’t flinch on addressing the DACA question. Gutierrez & Co. will oppose his agenda no matter what he does.

  • This is pretty incredible, Trump has exceeded expectations right out of the gate.

    Trump HAD to build the wall. But he must not soften on the Dreamers. Don’t have to deport them right now because its probably not politically feasible to do so, but don’t make millions of young Mexican illegal aliens American citizens. If Trump makes millions of illegal aliens citizens, we go to political war with him and turn our fire on Trump.

    So far, so good. Trump is an egotist by nature, what did the lying press expect, for him to take it laying down like so many cucks that have come before him?

    His compassion will be an issue – the local Spanish speaking radio stations indicate DACA will stand.
    If Daca stands. Texas, Arizona, Florida – Turn blue.

    • Ronnie

      The so called “Dreamers” need to go. The only other viable alternative would be to permanently revoke their right to vote as a condition to remain.

    The tears from this will delight me for years
