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. (138-139). Economically, illegal immigrants are hurting the United States. Illegal immigrant children often need special language specialists and classes, which takes time and resources away from students who are actually U.S. citizens. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, U.S. taxpayers “shell out” $52 billion annually to educate these “illegal aliens” (140). In order to fix the problem of illegal immigration, Donald Trump has come up with the “5-Point Trump Plan.” First, the U.S. needs to secure its borders. Second, we need a president who will enforce our laws. Third, we need to overrun Obama’s ICE recommendations for illegal immigrant detention facilities. Next, we need to oppose the DREAM Act, which grants in-state tuition benefits at public colleges to illegal immigrant college students. Finally, democrats need to respect our laws (146-151). Donald Trump believes that illegal immigration is a waste of taxes, and is not fair to immigrants who are lawfully waiting for a

    Also immigrants work in communities and are crucial to keep the economy from crashing. Trump claims that all illegal aliens are taking all our jobs but if immigrants did not do these jobs, the US would have an even higher unemployment rate(On The Issue, Web).

Yadrina and Marisella, characters that have a difficult time finding jobs without social security numbers in Just Like Us, end up finding work can provide for themselves and their families.

    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.…

    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…

    Head of state, Trump is belligerent and that’s the cause of his negative public perception. Trump played on the vulnerability of the people on delicate subjects such as immigration during his campaign, yet the reference to immigration was narrow, and minimal to congress priorities of repealing the affordable care act. President Trump denounced Islamic terrorism and pledge to eliminate it from the face of the planet but dedicated only half a sentence to the topic. In contrast to prior President Obama who talked about immigration, foreign policy and anti-discrimination in his inauguration address. Americans are now faced with a commander who is constitutionally incapable of telling the truth of trivial things.…

    Many of the arguments Trump has made are claims that too many criminal illegal immigrants are released into American communities under the current immigration policy. He has made statements like, “Since 2013 alone, the Obama Administration has allowed 300,000 criminal aliens to return back into U.S. communities.” and “From the year 2008 through 2014, nearly 13,000 criminal aliens were released back into U.S. communities because their home countries would not take them back.” (Trump, 2016) These statements can be extremely effective against American citizens because it targets their emotions, and makes them feel unsafe with the presence of illegal immigrants in their country. To counter these arguments, and others similar to them, illegal immigrants need to make the American people feel that they bring more positives than negatives to the country. Also when illegal immigrants are attacked for being criminals they should avoid apologizing for others mistakes, because it will make them seem guilty and will make the other arguments they have made seem less…

    That seems to be his base, although he is trying to attract Republicans to support him, his accusations about illegal immigrants is quite backwards. Trump uses “Build a Wall” and “Make America Great Again” as a way to attract people who a completely against immigration in any way. He is pinned as a “racist”, but as one of the leading Republican candidates, building a wall will not solve all of the country 's problems. Immigrants help the United States economy tremendously, but they are illegal and just because they are illegal, they get the raw end of the…
