One idea addressed during a transition team meeting Sunday was to deputize local police officers around the country to enforce existing immigration laws, using an effective plan already in place.
That’s right. It already exists. Or did. President Obama killed it.
You’d better sit down for this one.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency had a program to deputize local law enforcement to locate and catch undocumented immigrants in their communities. Congress passed it in 1996.
By 2010, local officers in 24 states were making traffic stops and checking local jails for immigration status. The program counted for 10 to 20 percent of interior deportations, according to National Review.
Bowing to liberal pressure and cries of “discrimination”, President Barack Obama has largely phased out the program. Enter Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who has helped several states draft tough anti-illegal immigration laws.
Kobach also addressed Trump’s pledge to revoke the Syrian refugee program and to increase screening of all people from countries with ties to terrorism.
I can hear the liberals screaming now.
Kobach suggests the program be implemented in at least 70 cities and counties. We hope that when Donald Trump takes office in January, our new president will target the hundreds of “sanctuary cities” across the U.S.
These cities, which house the majority of America’s 11 to 12 million illegal immigrants, have seen a resulting crime wave, according to The Washington Examiner. Sanctuary cities do not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement and refuse to check immigration status during traffic stops or when investigating crimes.
Difficult? Yes. Impossible? No. Our new president will be strong, determined, and will fulfill his promise to take back our country, enforce our laws, and protect our borders.
