Trump’s Tactics Of Fear At The Border Seem To Be Working

This has made the Washington Post very sad

In many ways, President Trump’s attempts to implement his hard-line immigration policies have not gone very well in his first three months. His travel ban aimed at some Muslim-majority countries has been blocked by the courts, his U.S.-Mexico border wall has gone nowhere in Congress, and he has retreated, at least for now, on his vow to target illegal immigrants brought here as children.

But one strategy that seems to be working well is fear. The number of migrants, legal and illegal, crossing into the United States has dropped markedly since Trump took office, while recent declines in the number of deportations have been reversed.

Many experts on both sides of the immigration debate attribute at least part of this shift to the use of sharp, unwelcoming rhetoric by Trump and his aides, as well as the administration’s showy use of enforcement raids and public spotlighting of crimes committed by immigrants. The tactics were aimed at sending a political message to those in the country illegally or those thinking about trying to come.

It’s working, and, guess what? The Democrat Media Complex is providing an enormous amount of help in this endeavor. All the articles, the opinion pieces, the hyperventilation on TV and social media, this all provides help to Mr. Trump and those of us who are against illegal immigration.

“The world is getting the message,” Trump said last week during a speech at the National Rifle Association leadership forum in Atlanta. “They know our border is no longer open to illegal immigration, and if they try to break in you’ll be caught and you’ll be returned to your home. You’re not staying any longer. If you keep coming back illegally after deportation, you’ll be arrested and prosecuted and put behind bars. Otherwise it will never end.”

In a sane world, that type of speech would be applauded for attempting to uphold our laws and sovereignty. In Liberal World, it’s a crime against humanity or something.

Deportations had fallen sharply in the final years of the Obama administration as the former president tightened enforcement guidelines to focus on hardened criminals. But under Trump, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has begun to ramp up the number of immigrants who are being placed in removal proceedings.

Federal agents arrested 21,362 immigrants, mostly convicted criminals, from January through mid-March, compared with 16,104 during the same period last year, according to federal data. Arrests of immigrants with no criminal records more than doubled, to 5,441 in that period.

“This is the Trump era. Progress is being made daily, and it will continue,” declared Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has begun to reorganize the Justice Department to prosecute more immigration cases. “This will be the administration that fully enforces our nation’s immigration laws.”

Happy Dance!

The importation of “refugees” from areas ripe with Islamic extremism has also decreased heavily under Trump, meaning American women will not be exposed to the sexual assaults and rapes and simply uncivilized treatment that has been seen in all the European countries taking the “refugees” in.

    So we don’t need a wall, we just need to elect a Douchebag in Chief (DIC), making America less attractive! Tech firms are losing immigrant engineers and scientists to European and Asian markets. Applications to US universities by foreign students are way down too.

    The DIC’s supporters are getting their wish – a whiter America!

    The only thing wrong with this development is that opposition to illegal immigration has become so conflated with opposition to immigration in general, that many who have nothing to fear have become fearful, as showed by the decrease in legal entry. This conflation I attribute largely to the “open borders” crowd, who seem to regard the two groups with little distinction.

    And no, Jeffery, we don’t wish for an America that’s “whiter”, just an America where more people respect and obey the law. By the way, the current immigration law, under which about a million green cards are given out every year, reserves most of those cards for people who are not white.
