Trump Pulls Immigration Punches

President Trump on Sunday made his stance on immigration clear by stating that undocumented immigrants who cross the border into the United States should be scraped up and sent back home.

This move, however, would be at odds with the U.S. Constitution which allows for due process for citizens and non-citizens alike, according to legal analysts and immigrant rights advocates.

The President charged that U.S. immigration laws are “a mockery” and must be overhauled to take away trial rights from undocumented migrants.

In one of his weekend tweets, Trump noted that illegal immigrants should be dispensed with as soon as possible by returning them to their home country.

“We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country,” Trump noted. “When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order. Most children come without parents.”

The president further noted in another tweet, “Our Immigration policy, laughed at all over the world, is very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally and are waiting on line for years! Immigration must be based on merit — we need people who will help to Make America Great Again!”

The President while addressing the National Federation of Independent Businesses at their 75th Anniversary Celebration recently declared, “I don’t want judges.” And further said, “I want border security. I don’t want to try people. I don’t want people coming in. Do you know, if a person comes in and puts one foot on our ground, it’s essentially, ‘Welcome to America, welcome to our country?” You never get them out because they take their name, they bring the name down, they file it, then they let the person go. They say, “Show back up to court in one year from now.”
