DHS Head Kelly throws deportation question back on the door of Congress….

It’s NOT THAT simple though…

It’s ALWAYS about HOW you apply the law since just about EVERYTHING is illegal in one way or another ….

Trump and Co. seems bent on apply the law selectively against immigrants that have had some compassion for those who have been in the country for a good amount of time that have commited no crime except for coming here…

Many ARE upstanding people in their communities that have paid taxes for decades….

Yet Atty Gen Sessions wants to have them charged for just being here?

Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly called on Congress to fix the nation’s immigration laws, arguing his department shouldn’t have as much discretion as it does on deportations.

“I would argue, Chuck, that we have to straighten this out,” Kelly told host Chuck Todd of NBC on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.” “And I place that squarely on the United States Congress. It’s a hugely complex series of laws, and I engage the Hill quite a bit and get an earful about what I should do and what I shouldn’t do. But it all comes down to the law, doesn’t it?

“And we are a nation of laws, and I would hope that the Congress fixes a lot of these problems.”…



Congress isn’t ready to tackle Immigration reform…

The number of Southern Border crossing has dropped dramatically ….

And Congress isn’t gonna give the Trump Admin anything close to what it would need ina budget to go thru what Sessions wants…

But the Trump Admin has scared border crossing down AND tourist travel to America is also drastically down ….

All this get tough stuff is costing the American economy in several ways…

Is the Congress gonna pay for Trump hunting down ALL illegal’s?…

Plans are in the works for the Trump Admin to find detention centers for over 30,000 illega’s….

The Border patrol may told to stop letting ANYONE across the border that is undoucmented for ANY reason….

And ICE may be directed to begin raids….

The Attorney General has already instructed his US Attorney’s to consider the mere act of BEING undocumented as a crime to be charged by arrests…

Of course Congress would have to approve money for all this and chances are against dealing with the cost…

Republicans have ALREADY pushed back any spending on any of this ….And won’t be able to spend Billions on Trump’s campaign promises…

And the number of deportations has drasticly dropped as Trump’s efforts have been publicized in the media…

Congressional Democrats, who have opposed Trump’s immigration agenda, have expressed skepticism that Congress would agree to approve funding for many of the expensive initiatives.

For example, Trump has called for CBP to hire 5,000 new agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement an additional 10,000. The DHS assessment said the cost of hiring just 500 agents would reach $100 million.

Republican leaders have proposed delaying a decision on Trump’s initial request of $1.5 billion for the wall and an additional $2.6 billion for more border security next year until after a new spending bill is approved this month in the hope of averting a government shutdown….

Government figures show the number of people illegally crossing the border from Mexico has dropped sharply in the first two months of Trump’s administration. The DHS assessment states that 2,100 detention spaces previously reserved by CBP and ICE during an immigration surge late last year are unused….

Breaking…Trump Admin memo calls for 100,000 National Guard Immigration deportation force…Update

This is from a leak sent to the Associated Press….

This only from a suggestion sent to the Trump White House….

State Governors would to ok if their troops where to be used…

A response to this will be spread like wildfire….

So would legal push backs….

A draft memo obtained by The Associated Press outlines a Trump administration proposal under consideration to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants. Millions of those who would be affected in 11 states live nowhere near the Mexico border.

The 11-page document calls for the unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans, Louisiana. If the proposal is implemented, governors in the affected states would have final approval on whether troops under their control participate…

Donald Trump double’s down on Deportation Force….

His NEW campaign manager is gonna learn what his previous ones have learned…


His new campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Sunday tried to give him some wiggle room on the deportions issue…

That resulted in the last 24 hours of media questions as to was Trump trying to ‘soften’ his anti-Immigration position ?

After reports emerged over the weekend that he might soften his stance on immigration, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump confirmed Monday that he will not back down on what has become his campaign’s signature issue.

Speaking to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, Trump reiterated that he would deport undocumented immigrants en masse if elected president…

In his interview with O’Reilly, Trump asserted that while he would not back down on mass deportations, he would handle them in “a humane manner.” He also said that he would not place immigrants in detention centers and claimed that he has “very, very good relationships” with “a lot of Hispanic people.”…..

Donald Trump can’t change his mind on his ‘Deporting’ the long term undocumented in America…

Never mind what his new campaign mouth piece alludes to with a ‘to-be-announced answer to if Trump would go thru with a mass ‘Deportation Force’….

Trump has made hard assed Immigration enforcement his calling acrd for the jump….

He simply cannot be  found believable with both sides of the political spectrum with ANY ambiguity on immigration policy…

Since launching his presidential candidacy 14 months ago, Donald Trump’s most consistent and uncompromising policy issue has been immigration. Indeed, it was the subject of his first general-election TV ad that started airing on Friday. Yet over the weekend, his top aides and advisers suggested that Trump might be shifting on his past position that all of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States must be deported forcibly. “To be determined,” is what newly minted Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway said on CNN when asked if Trump was retreating on the “deportation force” he talked about during the primary season. But here’s why it’s so hard — if not impossible — for Trump to retreat on immigration: He’s caught between his clear, unambiguous past statements and a base that might not willing to see him moderate on the issue. His past statements:

Aug. 16, 2015
“We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go,” Trump said on NBC’s Meet the Press.” More Trump: “We will work with them. They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don’t have a country,” he said.

Nov. 11, 2015
“You are going to have a deportation force, and you are going to do it humanely,” Trump said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked how he would round up the nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants.

April 21, 2016
“Look, we’re either going to have a country or we’re not going to have a country. But many people are very fine people. And I’m sure these are very, very fine people. They’re going to go, and we’re going to create a path where we can get them into this country legally, okay? But it has to be done legally” — when asked by a questioner at a “Today” town hall that person’s undocumented relatives would have to be deported if Trump becomes president.

Trump can’t ignore a base that has cheered his uncompromising immigration position

And then there are the Trump supporters who’ve cheered the GOP presidential nominee for being so uncompromising on immigration….
