US to Widen Net for Illegal Aliens


The Trump administration has issued tough guidelines to widen the net for deporting illegal immigrants from the US, and speed up their removal.

Undocumented immigrants arrested for traffic violations or shop-lifting will be targeted along with those convicted of more serious crimes.

All 11 million or so undocumented foreigners in the US could be affected.

I don’t think we need to commit a ton of resources to find and deport illegal aliens, but when law enforcement runs across them in the normal course of business, they should be deported. They do not have a legal right to be in America.

    I recently read a story about a person who came to our Country as a child and was caught by ICE and deported.  Reading the story, I felt sorry for this person until I got to the part that HE WAS 43 YEARS OLD!  While I do not know this person, I assume he knew he was in our Country illegally and also that he had the opportunity to apply for citizenship during his time in our Country.

    Deporting criminal aliens and gang members should be a priority but persons unwilling to become citizens of our Country that have had 10, 20, 30 years or more to apply obviously do not to be part of our Country so I don’t get the complaint that they should be exempt from our laws.
