Donald Trump does not receive special treatment in his tax code, therefore neither should the undocumented immigrants. In the article previously mentioned by Hart, he says “If we disobey, we are said to ‘break’ the law and what we have done is legally ‘wrong’, a ‘breach’ of duty, or an ‘offence’ (27). When the law is continually being broken actions need to be taken. If a case of undocumented immigration went to the court, they would look for an analogy and compare similarities and difference ending up with a conclusion (Bybee 10/10). The more and more undocumented immigrants migrating is causing a commotion in the United States. Whether you are a woman or a man, with or without a family, actions need to be taken against undocumented immigrant to keep the number of undocumented immigrants to a minimum. The correct immigration policies are costing taxpayers $300 billion a year according to the National Review (Trump 1). If they believe they should be a citizen, they should return to their home country and become a citizen the right and just way. In the Presidential Announcement Speech written by Donald Trump, he says “They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people” (1). Donald Trump addresses the issue that he believes most of the …show more content…
Most people that agree that all undocumented immigrants should be kicked out of the United States believe that they also do more harm than good, but according to the article The Criminalization of Immigration in the United States, as immigration rates heighten, crime rates lower (Walter et al. 1). Undocumented immigrants should be left alone and should not be discriminated against. With the Equal Protection Clause, you are unable to treat people differently based on race and gender. Therefore, undocumented immigrants can fight back against the law and claim that they are being discriminated against so they are not deported. In the court case, Frontiero v. Richardson, Sharon Frontiero filed a suit saying she was discriminated against based on her sex (1). With the argument of race or gender you are under very strict scrutiny and in the end are compelled and it is necessary to reach a goal. Donald Trump believes his influence can get all of the undocumented immigrants out of the United States. Trump treats immigrants like companies abuse citizens with the boilerplate. The boilerplate is a take it or leave it contract that is standardized across different venues. Companies use the boilerplate to undermine their customers (Bybee 10/13). Undocumented immigrants should not be deported because they already going through the hardships of being denied their own fundamental

    As a Republican candidate running for president, Trump thinks the immigrants are rapists, criminals, and drug dealers. Trump is bias towards the immigrants because he anticipates that the immigrants commit the majority of the crime and violence in America. From a moral standpoint, I believe Trumps immigration plan is unfair because it asserts certain groups of people to be different than the others. Although I am a U.S. citizen, my parents came from a different country. Consequently, Trump 's plan will deport my family, and my friends, and possibly your family and friends too.…

    Bill Clinton said “We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants and tonight I announce I will sign an Executive Order to deny Federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.” whereas Trump said “You can be very, very strong. It can be a huge financial penalty, it can be beyond a financial penalty. You can do that with E-Verify. I’m for it.” Just comparing these two quotes, Clinton is very specific about his rhetoric by stating what he will do to keep his words, whereas Trump is very ambiguous by listing meaningless words in his quotes. Furthermore, Trump tells his supporters that immigrants are “taking your jobs” therefore, there must be a penalty and most middle-income whites agree with Trump’s word because they believe Trump tells the truth and it is very likely that many whites find a job unable to get because employers are hiring minorities instead.…

    Trump believes that illegal immigration is destroying U.S. taxpayers, and he believes that neither Republicans nor Democrats are helping the situation. Republicans don’t do anything about illegal immigration because some of their business supporters want cheap labor. Democrats look at illegal immigrants as potential Democratic voters (135-136). Both Democrats and Republicans may have their reasons for illegal immigrants to stay, but Donald Trump thinks that the parties need to put America’s interests first and that illegal immigrants need to return from whence they came. Trump then continues to discuss that illegal immigrants are by definition, lawbreakers, and refers to them as “illegal aliens” due to the fact that illegal immigrants are often members or violent gangs.…

    Right now, his most well known policy has to do with immigration reform. Right off the bat, I know many people think that Trump hates Hispanics, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Robert Costa quotes Trump, stating, “We want people to come into our country but they have to come into our country legally.” Now what seems unreasonable about that? Donald Trump, arguments strong, makes a legitimate case for immigration reform. The media has so greatly skewed the image of Trump, and they have twisted his words around to make him seem like a racist.…

    Also, the illegal immigrants don 't have any citizenship, and Trump argues the babies of illegal immigrants who are born on American soil, commonly referred to as anchor-babies, must not be given citizenship. Trump states that the 14th amendment doesn’t apply to illegal immigrants because it was, “NEVER the intention” (Trump, 140-141). Mr. Trump believes the amendment was created only to grant slaves full citizenship. Since Trump concludes undocumented workers steal tax dollars, are inherently brutal, and anchor-babies are unjust, he wants…
