Trump needs to take action to stem illegal immigration. This was his first promise when he opened his campaign, and he still has taken no signification action to control it. I really don’t care about building the wall, as long as new illegal immigration is stopped and meaningful action is taken against aliens who are currently here illegally. I am not a big fan of DACA, but I agree we should not punish children for the acts of their parents; however, we should restrict DACA benefits to those who have clearly demonstrated a desire to stay here and to contribute to the United States, as opposed to collecting US government benefits.
We can start by just enforcing the laws on the books. I issued visas to Brazilians at the American Consulate in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in the 1970s. Whenever I denied a visa, a felt badly because I knew that if that Brazilian lived in Mexico, he could just walk across the border to the US, while that option was not available to Brazilians. Because of the absence of law enforcement, Mexicans received a gigantic benefit that was available to no other nationality on earth, except Canadians, who didn’t need it. It was racial discrimination run amok, egregious discrimination against all non-Mexicans around the world.
Democrats wanted poorer voters who would vote Democratic as soon as they could. Republicans wanted cheap, illegal labor whom they could pay almost nothing. Together they conspired to ignore the immigration law, just as bootleggers had ignored prohibition laws in the 1920s. American immigration law was a joke, a travesty, spit on and reviled by everyone involved, while publicly they left it on the books as if it actually meant anything.
America has ceased to be a predominantly European country. It has become a Latin American country, Northern Mexico, run by a coterie of Jews, who as racists, have no trouble subjugating the Mexicans while advocating their addition to the Democratic Party.
It is probably too late for America. Europeans are not enthusiastic about coming to a country that no longer espouses European ideals, but instead follows a caudillo model of strongman government (Trump). It also becomes less attractive to Mexicans, because it now looks much more like Mexico than it used to. Moving to the US no longer means moving to a more advanced country; it just means more free lunches from time to time, which is reflected in the declining illegal immigration rates.
Nevertheless, I would like Trump to test the theory that it is not too late for the US to revert to being a European country. The US is already astoundingly Mexican, but there were enough white people left to elected Donald Trump. There might be enough left to change the country’s direction. We won’t know unless we try. But so far, Trump has not tried.
