Illegal immigrants. President Trump: round-ups begin. 11,000,000
If that is what the American people want.
With any luck, Trump might win. At least he’d be no worse than Killary Klingon, and he’s certain to be a one-term wonder.
Dump can point to a “successful” historical precedent.
At last we can have that police state the right wingers have been clamoring for as long as I can recall.
First, differentiate between Immigrants and Colonists. Immigrants want to become part of an adopted nation, colonists want to establish an outpost of their current nation on someone else’s land. Nations have every right to establish and enforce rules for immigration, and to expel colonists (by force if necessary).
The crime of having the wrong skin color under the Republican regime. What happens to the “immigrants” who were born in the US? Do we just boot them out too? I haven’t heard specifics on his plan. Will we just have a separate but equal camp for them?
Actually It would be a Boon for this country.
Imagine employers being forced to utilize US citizens without artificially holding down the wage rate. US Citizens might be able to, once again, afford the American dream.
@Crow Nobo etc,etc,The police state is already here, Obama’s administration has deported more illegals than any administration before his. It has been quiet down so not to damage Obama’s image, you know the one provided by the media and the one you are so willingly swallowing. Have you ever notice that socialist countries don’t have a illegal immigration problem, maybe it is because they are already police states. And please refrain from calling European countries socialists, they are already pissed about the tittle. They themselves have declared they are not. And in case you haven’t notice most immigrant legal or illegal come from those socialists countries. By the way Canadian in the US are allowed to go back if they wish to, no fear of reprisal.
@Mr. Blawt – It isn’t about their skin color. It’s about whether or not they were born into this country or legally naturalized.
They broke the law coming here illegally and continue to break the law by seeking and obtaining employment.
As for those born here legally. They can stay as is the right of every American born into this country (Regardless of skin color mind you). However, if they want to stay with their families they must go with their parents to where ever their parents were born. When they are adults or emancipated minors they can, of course, return.
This is about rule of law not skin color. I would say the same thing about Kanuks coming down from Canada.
Thank you Ted for a well thought out and accurate cartoon.
You gotta ask yourself, how much will it cost to deport 11,000,000 people? And then ask yourself, do we REALLY want to WASTE that much money? Don’t we have anything better to spend it on? Other than to have Senor Trumpo fulfill a stupid campaign promise? (The answer is 20 years and $400-600 BILLION dollars. And NO.)
@The Wolf in Your Midst – Believe it or not I am all for punishing employers for knowingly employing Illegal Immigrants. My sons working at Boy Scout camp were required to fill out a Federal form that showed that they were legally allowed to work in this country just like every other Boy Scout.
I’ll join you in asking "Why aren’t we raiding Vegetable groves, Tyson Chicken Processing plants, construction sites, etc?
If we started prosecuting the demand side of employment you wouldn’t need to build a wall.
Illegal immigration is how some corporations hold down their wage rate. They threaten employees with replacing them with foreign/illegal workers.
How many do you have now?
If I could invent time travel, and take equipment back, I would go back approximately 800 years or so and arm the native Americans with modern tech. I’d love to be able to see the 3 ships of Columbus met by a modern Coast Guard cutter, let alone an old battleship.
Illegal is illegal. When a law is that odious why don’t they change it?
Well, a good start maybe . . .
