Remember, President Trump told us he was going to give Congress two weeks to fix our immigration laws and he called off raids for that purpose.

2 weeks.

The clock has run.

Congress went on recess without passing anything relating to cutting off the pipeline of illegals.

Congress has intentionally promoted illegal invasion since 1986.  Both parties.

Trump can do two things to stop it:

  • Cut off the cartel money.  No remittances unless you're a permanent resident or citizen, and you have to prove it to send money overseas via cash wire transfer services, or anything like it.  This can be done under existing anti-money-laundering law; Treasury can do this literally in one day.

  • Cut off the funds from employers who are getting rich on these people while screwing Americans.  100% E-Verify, period.  Require submission of the E-Verify control numbers with all 941 reports. It is already required that employers verify status; put some teeth into it via Executive Order.

I'm willing to bet that Trump will do neither, nor will he do anything effective.  Why not?

Because his buddies in the Republican Party, including especially the farm lobby, love all the illegal, cheap labor -- that's why.  The truth is that Trump doesn't care how many girls in Iowa -- or Utah -- are murdered as a result no matter what lies he may spout otherwise.

Give me 10,000 to one odds with at least a thousand dollar by in, and I still would not take that bet against you.

Why?

In fact I would bet that if you went so far as to have this bet broadcast nationally for and with the sole purpose of embarrassing him (and making money), you would end up a multi-millionaire. And in the end the only thing Trump would do is have your legal citizen butt thrown in jail and your winning remitted.


GO TEAM!!!!!

@ GoneWest:

Does not matter as far as I'm concerned; he's had more than enough time to make progress on this, and many other issues. He's dead to me and I'll not vote for him again no matter what.

And a great many others who voted for him feel the same way.

I give the guy credit, got me to vote for the first time in 20 years but, done. Sad thing is if the current crop of human detritus is the best the Dems can do, he'll likely win again.

Yeah, Trump needs to cut off illegals sending money out of the country. Hell I was told by my bank that I broke some law/regulation by transferring money from my saving account to my checking account too many times in a month. So no way illegals should be able to send as much money as they want out of the country.

A cousin of mine has a wonderful piece of property with a beautiful view of some kind of big-deal corporate produce farm. The vegetable-harvesting workers are clearly, nearly 100% li'l brownish illegals. Whenever Trump makes some noise - briefly, for show - workers disappear until the staged event is over. On those days, it's very quiet and pleasant while food rots in the fields. Once eyes are pointed elsewhere, the sounds of farm work start again.

@Mdyoung216 -- you nailed it perhaps without realizing it. the legit Americans have to watch every step and rightfully so as there are both legitimate and illegitimate ways of protesting the law. the former rarely works.

no society can be perfect, however we see everyday in almost every way that crime does pay. when the peanut gallery chimes in that life is not fair how long does it take before honest people decide to join the party and make their lives easier and more profitable. Newsflash: it already happened thirty years ago which is why no one protests or strikes in protest. no one wants the game to end, he just wants to find his own scam. to hell with the consequences.

the result is the following from 1984:

"No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future there will be no wives and no friends." (3.3.34, character OBrien from 1984)
