TRUMP’S PLAN ON IMMIGRATION
Based on his August 31st speech in Arizona consists of the following:
- Build the wall which would be paid for by Mexico. (Trump told reporters that he and the President of Mexico did not discuss the cost of who would pay for the multibillion-dollar project; however, later that day Pena Nieto, sent out a tweet that stated, “as the start of the conversation with Donald Trump, I made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall.”
- Trump has stated that “For those here today illegally who are seeking legal status, they will have one route and only one route: to return home and apply for re-entry under the rules of the new legal immigration systems.”
- Trump has stated that there will be “no amnesty, anyone who enters the country illegally will be “subject to deportation”.
- Trump said he will triple the number of deportation officers at the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
During Trump’s speech in Arizona, he did not give a definitive answer as to what he would do with most of the eleven million undocumented people who are not criminals. Previously, Trump pledged to forcibly remove the eleven million immigrants who are in the United States illegally; however, in his speech he did not give a definitive answer as to what he would do with those individuals.
