NY Times Seems Rather Upset Over Trump Getting Tough On Criminal Illegal Aliens

The Editorial Board of the NY Times finally chimes in on Trump’s big immigration speech, one in which he made utterly sure that no one thinks he’s backsliding in the least

Donald Trump, Deporter in Waiting

Don’t be confused by the days of mixed messaging from Donald Trump’s campaign, or the head-feint trip to Mexico, where he was polite to the president. Speaking on Wednesday in Phoenix, Mr. Trump did not retreat from, or in any way soften, his promise to make 11 million unauthorized immigrants targets for deportation. His speech — in 10 points, embellished with statistics, ad-libbed asides and audience hollering and chanting — was as clear a statement of hard-core restrictionism as any he has given.

It was a mass-deportation speech, even if he avoided that phrase. Its intent was hard to miss.

Obviously, Liberal World has a big problem with deporting people who came to this country illegally, because they want to turn them into good little wards of the state so they’ll vote Democrat. Besides, who will clean the NY Times building and mow the yards of the Editorial Board members?

Trump should have laid out how he would go after those who employ illegal aliens, with big criminal and civil penalties.

The NYTEB delves into the first 5 of Trump’s plan

Leave aside the bit about the “impenetrable” wall, an applause line for an engineering fiction. To understand what’s so appalling and frightening about Mr. Trump, focus instead on some things he could actually try to do, if America gives him the job and Congress gives the money:

1. “Under my administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country and back to the country from which they came. And they’ll be brought great distances.”

2. “We will issue detainers for illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever, and they will be placed into immediate removal proceedings.”

3. “My plan also includes cooperating closely with local jurisdictions to remove criminal aliens immediately. We will restore the highly successful Secure Communities program. Good program. We will expand and revitalize the popular 287(g) partnerships.”

4. “We’re going to triple the number of ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] deportation officers. Within ICE, I am going to create a new special deportation task force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants. … We’re also going to hire 5,000 more Border Patrol agents.”

5. “We will immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive amnesties in which he defied federal law and the Constitution to give amnesty to approximately five million illegal immigrants.”

Seems like a good plan. Overall, it still misses that the law should go heavily after those who employ illegals, as well as making sure that those on VISAs vamoose once they expire, but, the EB is obviously vexed over these 5 (there are 10 in total)

Nos. 1 and 2 are a plan to add many tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands, of new prison beds, while also filling local jails to bursting. They’re a gift to the private, for-profit prison industry and will ensure that any arrests, even false ones, can be springboards to deportation.

And? What’s the problem? If they broke the law and have been caught, well, shouldn’t they be held until deported? Or, does the NYTEB simply want them immediately deported? Of course, they just want criminals released back into the population to commit more crimes. And trim their hedges.

The NYTEB also forgot to mention that much of #1 and #2 where focused on the actual hardcore criminals who are also illegals, not those who empty the trashcans at the NY Times building. Read the transcript.

For #3, they are rather upset over Trump wanting to go after sanctuary cities.

No. 4 is a gift to an ICE union that endorsed Mr. Trump, and a plan to make the most bloated federal law-enforcement bureaucracy, Homeland Security, even bigger.

Suddenly, the NYTEB has a problem with Big Government being big. Must be that pesky part of the Constitution that requires the government to protect the borders from invasion that’s giving them heartburn.

And No. 5 tells millions of immigrants — who were brought here as children, or have citizen children, and pose no threat — to be very afraid, because we will hunt you down and expel you, and we already know where you live.

It also means that people need to follow the law, which applies to those who are here illegally, something that most nations, including Mexico, do not tolerate, as well as the Executive Branch, which is rather lawless.

The entire speech, in fact, imagines that government at all levels will be used to hunt down and remove immigrants from their homes, families and jobs. Mr. Trump was describing a world of lockups and surveillance and fugitive-hunting squads, a vast system of indiscriminate catch-and-punish that works as hard to catch hotel maids and landscapers as it does gang members and terrorists.

Which is funny, because Liberals love the notion of punishing people who don’t believe in anthropogenic climate change, they love the kangaroo courts at colleges, where people can be accused of rape with little to no evidence and are not allowed to defend themselves nor hear the accusations, and they love to abuse people who have committed Wrongthink. Catching people have broken our laws, are deflating wages, committing crimes, and stealing people’s identities, causing citizens a lot of problems.

Sure, there are some good ones. Perhaps if they learned English, stopped advocating for the return of the American SW to Mexico, and stopped Demanding that we give them stuff, including citizenship, there would be more sympathy. And, they should have come to this nation the right way.

Nativists across the land were praising Mr. Trump’s immigration speech as wonderful, potent stuff. Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, an organization that wants to restrict immigration, called it a “real-world version” of what’s “necessary to control immigration.” If you saw Mr. Trump’s speech, and you care about the country and values of tolerance and human rights and weren’t disgusted, you were either fooled, or not paying attention.

The NYTEB should try going into most countries, including Mexico, illegally, and see what happens. They can cry and scream and caterwaul all they want about just wanting to be part of that nation, that they’re good people, that they’re in danger in their home nation. They’ll still be deported. Heck, they may actually be thrown in jail for a stay.

At the end of the day, though, Liberals really do not care about the illegals who are committing crimes. They don’t care about those who are serious felons. They just want more voters.
