Trump: We Will Not Allow Our Generous System Of Immigration To Be Turned Against Us


PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: My fellow Americans, this week our hearts are with the people of Louisiana and Mississippi.

Families have lost their homes, businesses and livelihoods. After a devastating tornado swept through many, many communities.

My administration will make sure they have the support that they need and really desperately want.

We’re going to take care of them. It’s remarkable to see Americans across the country come together to help families rebuild their lives.

That is the beauty of the American spirit, there’s nothing like it. There’s a great spirit all over the country and that spirit is what we will need to rebuild America. As I have said so often, make America great again.

On Tuesday, I was pleased to host at the Whitehouse the CEO of Intel, Who announced that Intel will invest seven billion dollars in a new manufacturing facility in Arizona.

Creating thousands of new American jobs, that’s what we want. New American jobs and good jobs.

Intel decided to move forward with this project because they know we are totally committed to lifting the regulatory and tax burdens that are hurting American innovation and companies.

In fact, we are the process right now of working on a major tax reform that will massively reduce taxes on our workers and businesses.

We want to make it much easier to do business in America and that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to make it also much harder for companies to leave.

They’re not just going to say, bye-bye and fire everybody, there will be consequences.

I want America to be the great jobs magnet of the world, but we can’t do that if we don’t stop the wasteful rules and excessive taxes that makes it impossible for companies to compete.

Every hour of every day, my administration is focused on creating jobs for our people and I mean good jobs. More jobs, better jobs, higher paying jobs, that’s our mission.

This week, I also met with sheriffs and police chiefs from across the country. I pledged to them that we will stand with the incredible men and women of law enforcement. And so too will our great new attorney General, Jeff Sessions.

My administration is committed to your security which is why we will continue to fight to take all necessary and legal action to keep terrorists, radical and dangerous extremists from ever entering our country.

We will not allow our generous system of immigration to be turned against us as a tool for terrorism and truly bad people.

We must take firm steps today to ensure that we are safe tomorrow. We will defend our country, protect our country protect our Constitution and delivere real prosperity for our people.

God bless you, God bless America, have a great week.

How can anyone disagree with this?


He didn’t go far enough on the immigration issue. When the Republican party supports fining employers, preferably at 100% of the salaries paid for the entire time they were in the country illegally, than I will believe that they are sort of serious about the issue. When they actually fine employers, I will believe they are serious.

I don’t expect to believe Republicans on this issue any time soon.


Then one needs to support allowing employers to question identification that’s facially valid; something they can’t now do because it’s deemed “discriminatory”.

So one shouldn’t expect the Repubs or anyone else to punish any but, say, the few, largely coastal sweatshop employers who hire them right out of the cargo container until that gets fixed, because fake ID is pervasive. Just about every illegal has one.


They can’t question the documents? What law prevents them from doing that?


I’m no expert on this, but all HR people will tell you that. I think it’s a regulatory outgrowth of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If you look at the EEOC commentary cited below, it says you can’t engage in any hiring practice that RESULTS in disparate treatment of minorities or other protected groups, whether it’s intended that way or not.

If an employer is going to question ID, whose ID is he going to question? I do know that during the Bush administration (lax as it was in enforcement) the way it worked was that employers would send ICE a bundle of ID copies. ICE can look behind the ID to see if it’s real or not. If enough of it was fake, ICE would do a complicit raid of the workplace; one the employer knew it would do.

Lots of the raids, maybe even all of them, in workplaces one used to read about were the result of joint action between the employer and ICE
