Any idea that Trump was softening his position on immigration was just taken out and shot against the wall he wants to build.
After a staged meeting with the Mexican President, Trump goes full fascist by restating his wall and a new expulsion policy…
US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has insisted Mexico will pay for a border wall “100%”, in a major immigration speech.
He told a cheering crowd in Arizona that he would secure the border, and left open the possibility millions of illegal immigrants could be deported.
Hours earlier, he met the Mexican President Pena Nieto but said they did not discuss who would pay for the wall.
The president later insisted he had told Mr Trump Mexico would not pay.
There had been speculation that the Republican candidate would back off his plan to deport the estimated 11m undocumented immigrants living in the US.
How do you remove 11m people from the US?
In his speech in Phoenix, there were conflicting signals about this. He said their fate was not a “core issue” and that deporting “criminal aliens” would be the priority.
But he added: “Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation. That is what it means to have laws.”
In a fiery speech, he said he would:
Create a “special deportation force” focused on removing criminal immigrants
Put the “well-being of the American people” first
Introduce “extreme vetting” of immigrants to make sure they adhered to American values
Protect the interests of African American and Hispanic workers who are losing out to immigrants arriving illegally
Clamp down on people who overstay their visas
…I can’t tell if he’s serious or incredibly desperate? A special deportation force? Can you imagine what that looks like in practise? Armed state forces stopping people randomly who fit the ‘illegal alien look’.
Look at what American Police currently do for race relations in America with their love affair for shooting African-American’s. Imagine that against everyone who isn’t white.
We’d need a #AllLivesMatterAsMuchAsWhiteOnes campaign.
Yes ALL Lives.
Human Rights abuses and possible inflaming of an entire nation to one side, the cost of roving military units hunting illegals would be astronomical.
But the mention of them, the shadowy nature of the power needed to send these hunting packs out – it’s all very disquieting.
Mr Trump is a by-product of the manifest destiny arrogance that has eyes only for the glory of Amerika, he will purge the US back to its
Whiteness Greatness and those who have felt their privilege eroded and culture mocked will cheer as he burns the establishment and any sense of progress to the ground.
A man who only builds walls can never build bridges
