The Renewed Call for Immigration Enforcement

Trump outlines the Rule of Law provisions that will need to be met for any deal on DACA to happen.

President Donald Trump sent his 70-point immigration enforcement proposal to Congress Sunday evening. If there were any fears that Trump was caving in to Democrat demands on a DACA deal — and there were — this immigration plan will quickly dispel them. Trump’s enforcement plan is arguably the toughest ever offered by any administration. The fundamental theme running throughout the plan is a renewed focus on the primary problem — closing illegal immigration loopholes.

The plan calls for Congress to comprehensively rewrite immigration laws in order to stiffen security enforcement on both the border and interior (remember, as much as 40% of illegals are visa overstays). The plan also calls for changes to laws to cut the so-called migration chain, as well as funding for building the border wall and the hiring of more deportation agents. In brief, Trump’s proposal is a three-part plan that highlights border security, interior enforcement and merit-based immigration.

A senior White House official stated, “Anything that is done addressing the status of DACA recipients needs to include these three reforms and solve these three problems. If you don’t solve these problems, then you’re not going to have a secure border, you’re not going to have a lawful immigration system and you’re not going to be able to protect American workers.”

The Trump administration said that it designed the plan from the ground up after seeking input from the Justice, State and Labor Departments and agents on the ground. They were asked what tools they needed in order to finally get a handle on the problem. The details of this immigration plan are a direct result of that input.

Trump is rightly focusing on fixing issues of enforcement (or the lack thereof) that have allowed the problem of illegal immigration in the first place before addressing the secondary issue of how to handle the DACA problem.
