The agreement President Trump announced Friday night between the U.S. and Mexico on tariffs and immigration is an achievement that has eluded past presidents. He deserves the thanks and gratitude of all Americans – but of course, he won’t get it.
After threatening to impose tariffs on everything Mexico exports to the U.S., Trump got Mexico to agree to finally take greater action to reduce the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S. Trump then suspended imposition of U.S. tariffs on our southern neighbor.
Under the Friday agreement, which was distributed to the media, Mexico said it would “take unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration.”
The steps will include stationing Mexican National Guard troops around the country to stop illegal immigrants from entering Mexico from the south and from entering the U.S. In addition, Mexico agreed to expand a program that makes some immigrants wait in Mexico while U.S. officials review their asylum claims.
“Mexico will try very hard, and if they do that, this will be a very successful agreement for both the United States and Mexico!” President Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
As the former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and someone who spent almost 34 years working in the immigration and law enforcement fields, I believe President Trump has been right on the immigration issue from the start.
He is doing his job as president to protect our nation and our citizens. He is trying to keep his promise to the American people to enforce our immigration laws – a position that should draw bipartisan support, but draws only criticism from most elected Democrats.
President Trump has taken many executive actions on immigration because of the failures of Congress and the courts.
The president has sent more than 5,000 military personnel to our border with Mexico and additional federal civilian employees to augment the extremely overworked agents already there.
The president also put a new long-term immigration plan on the table that the Democratic congressional leadership would have welcomed 10 years ago – but instead has rejected out of hand.
The only reason Mexico is making any kind of effort is because President Trump is turning the screws on the fucking beaners. He’s the first President in years, to actually do something about the illegal alien crisis in this country.
Before illegal aliens became political tools, Dems actually wanted the immigration laws enforced.
ICE is overwhelmed, the Dems want to bring in as many illegals as they can to add them to their voting bloc and exploit for political gain, and the border is still not yet completely secured.
Hundreds of crimes are committed by these vermin. Cop killers, rapists, child molesters,murderers, thieves, robbers, gangs (MS13s), and a slew of other human garbage are coming into this country illegally and committing more felonies once they get in.

The U.S. has the right to control who enters the country. There is no Constitutional or legal right for a foreigner to enter the U.S. It’s a privilege. Every country has immigration laws, travel laws, and borders.
I like how Dwight Eisenhower handled the illegal alien problem; a military-directed operation with a no-nonsense approach to kicking out and keeping out illegal aliens. Round them up, send them home.
Enforce the law
Establish a vetting process for all foreign immigrants
Build the wall
