Donald Trump's plans have been made very clear with his "Make America Great Again" spiel, but what is he saying by suggesting America isn't great? He's made that quite clear, as well. Donald Trump plans to deport more categories of nationalities, he claims. It's unclear why he assumes that this is what has made America less than great. Is he suggesting that minorities are what make this country less than great because America was built and made great because of immigration, not in spite of it? While it is understandable to limit who we allow in our country during times of tension and terrorism, there is no understanding given to racial profiling.
The worst part is, Trump's disturbing policies for immigrant families go way beyond just "building a wall." https://t.co/szrTF9eB0EDonald Trump plans to cast a wider net. Trump plans to detain and deport all persons illegally residing in the U.S., regardless of criminality. He seems quite apathetic to the possibility of separating families for traffic infractions.

He has been quoted saying, "We will issue detainers for illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever, and they will be placed into immediate removal proceedings if we even have to do that." He has spoken freely about removing undocumented peoples upon taking office, "We will begin moving them out, day one. As soon as I take office. Day one."By them, he means the 2 million illegal immigrant criminals he claims are in this country.
The Department of Homeland Security could not confirm this claim of 2 million criminal illegal aliens. However, official data shows 176,000 immigrants convicted of a crime and ordered removed from this country by a judge remain in the U.S. with their whereabouts unknown. While that may seem like a rather large number, there are roughly 320 million people in the U.S. This comes out to be .055 percent of the US population.
Donald Trump's plans are centered on an issue that totals.055 percent of the country's population. So focused, in fact, that he wants to spend billions of dollars (Trump claims 12 billion, the Post estimated 25 billion) to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, yet continues to state that his plans are to deport a wider range of nationalities.
"Carl Shusterman, a Los Angeles attorney who has prosecuted for former Immigration and Naturalization Service, stated 'He [Trump] can't just deport people who have the right to a hearing. That would be unconstitutional, unless Congress changed the system, and put it into law.'"Maybe that is exactly what Donald Trump plans to do.
Donald Trump plans to build a wall that would cost taxpayers billions of dollars. Donald Trump plans to hire over 12,400 more ICE officers that are not needed, also costing the taxpayers more money. Donald Trump plans to start this process upon taking office, and he plans to use his executive power to attain his own agenda. Donald Trump plans to run a white America unless you're young, sexy, and female. Donald Trump plans to run our country his way, not the democratic way.
Does Donald Trump plan to run this country into the ground?
