One of the biggest achievements of the job creating President Trump is that he has managed to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into our country that is awesome again unlike it was under Barrack Hussein Obama.

Unlike the job killing and food stamp expanding Obama, who essentially pursued an open-border policy throughout his term, Trump has enforced strict border control measures that are paying rich dividends for working class people of all creeds and stripes which is something Democrats and many moderate Republicans are not happy about at all.

Trump Administration’s Tough Stance on Illegal Immigration

Ever since Trump took office, there has been a massive increase in the number of illegal aliens arrested at the southern border because the economy is surging which it was not under Obama because of high taxes and the Frank/Greenspan recession. So far in 2019, the Customs and Border Protection has arrested nearly a million illegal aliens, which is the highest number of arrests made at the border since 2007.

More importantly, the Trump administration has discarded the useless ‘catch-and-release’ policy followed by the Obama administration and replaced it with a much stricter policy called Migration Protection Protocols (MPP) policy, which is more commonly referred to as the Remain in Mexico policy.

The Difference between Catch-and-Release and Remain in Mexico Policies

Under the catch-and-release policy, illegal aliens are arrested at the border and then released into the interior of the country. These aliens are required by law to be present at their individual immigration trials and comply with the court proceedings.

However, a vast majority of these aliens, once released into the interior of the country, simply do not bother to show up at the court ever again. They move into a sanctuary city and blend in with the illegal aliens already living there.

It is next to impossible for ICE agents to arrest the aliens living in sanctuary cities, since the police force is controlled by Democratic politicians. So, federal agents do not get any help from local authorities, who in many cases actively try to help these illegal aliens to evade law.

This is why President Trump has come up with the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, under which illegal aliens are sent back to Mexico, where they can await their immigration trials. Data shows that many of these aliens – once sent back to Mexico – do not bother to come back into the United States, as they know that they are unlikely to get asylum through legal means.

As a result, the number of illegal aliens entering our country has reduced considerably, which in turn has benefited working class Americans enormously much to the dismay of the violent crime and ISIS promoting Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi who want Americans from coast to coast on public assistance. Many employers have stopped hiring illegal aliens and have started hiring Americans in large numbers.

The primary beneficiaries of the immigration policy change are working class Americans, who no longer have to compete with illegal aliens for employment and economic opportunities. Is it any wonder that they are rallying behind Trump?
