Trump Signs Orders That Would Allow Police Officers to Enforce Immigration Laws

President Donald Trump had a busy first week in office issuing a flurry of executive actions and orders to kick start his agenda, some of which flew under the radar of both the media and perpetually outraged liberals.

While most of the attention last Wednesday was focused on Trump’s orders authorizing construction of the border wall and efforts to crack down on sanctuary cities, ABC News reported that Trump also ordered the revival of an old program that had nearly been mothballed by the Obama administration.

The program permits the Department of Homeland Security to essentially “deputize” local law enforcement agents and officers to aid in enforcing federal immigration laws, such as by checking an individual’s immigration status through the course of routine contact, and certainly if they’ve been arrested or jailed in connection with sort of crime.

The program had more than 60 various police departments and sheriff’s offices enrolled as of 2009, but President Barack Obama’s administration rolled it back and limited it significantly, to the point that about half of the participants dropped out while the rest were consigned to simply check their local jails for violent violators of immigration laws who needed to be turned over to federal agents.

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona was perhaps the most well-known participant in the program, even as he was repeatedly harassed and sued for taking part in it.

To be sure, civil rights groups and immigration advocates have decried the program and stated that they believe it will inevitably lead to an increase in racial profiling or the rights of immigrants being violated, which is what they accused Arpaio of doing. However, other groups, like the Center for Immigration Studies, cheered the return of the “great program” that at one point accounted for nearly 20 percent of criminal deportations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, according to The Washington Post.

The Post also reported that Trump concurrently revived the Secure Communities program, a program both started and stopped under Obama that checked the fingerprints of everyone taken into custody by law enforcement across the U.S. against a federal database of immigration records, quickly identifying those individuals who needed to be handed over to the feds for deportation.

BizPac Review noted that several local law enforcement agencies have already jumped at the chance to enlist the services of their officers in aiding federal immigration agents, including the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office in Texas.

Jackson County Sheriff A.J. “Andy” Louderback estimated that it would cost his department roughly $3,000 to train a few of his deputies to take part in the program, but he wasn’t worried about the cost at all as he figured it would be money well-spent.

“It just seems like good law enforcement to partner with federal law enforcement in this area,” said Louderback. “It takes all of us to do this job.”

Indeed, it does take the cooperation of everyone on the federal, state and local level to effectively enforce immigration laws. This program should serve as a counter to those uncooperative jurisdictions across the nation that profess to be “sanctuaries” for illegal immigrants in violation of federal laws.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
