Though he has little experience being a government employee, Trump is campaigning for presidency. Among the many problems facing America is immigration. Immigration is a pressing issue that is being addressed by all candidates. Solutions to this dilemma vary from being lenient on illegal immigrants to extremely harsh; the Trump campaign is under the harsher categories. Arguing immigrants …show more content…
There are millions and millions of undocumented workers living in America and Trump believes undocumented workers cannot be here nor deserve citizenship. In his book, Candidate Trump claims the, “annual price tag to incarcerate these [illegal immigrants] is $1.1 billion”(Trump, 136). Taxes dollars are being used to cover the cost to jail undocumented workers. Trump believes that the “thugs” are depleting our nation’s resources. Furthermore, Trump says that when immigrants come illegally from Mexico, they aren 't the best people who bringing a new perspective, instead “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists” (Donald Trump’s false comments… 1). The undocumented workers not only drain America’s resources, but that are also unfriendly, mean people who corrupt America 's diverse community. 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 …show more content…
In 2011, Trump states in his book, Time to Get Tough, America needs, “... to build other kinds of fences…. The point is that properly built walls work” (Trump, 146-147). Trump adds that the success of walls can be seen from Yuma, Arizona. The Trump campaign plans on building a triple layered fence in hopes it will slow, if not stop, illegal immigration from Mexico. Also, Trump expects Mexico to pay for the construction of this mega fence. Furthermore, Trump claims the border must not only have a triple layered fence, but also, “another 25,000 border patrol agents and … the aerial equipment they need, such as Predator drones”(Trump, 146-147). The improved border will have double the amount of troops, new fences, and aerial support. The aerial support will be provided by Predator drones, military grade, high tech, machines. Moreover, Trump believes the border needs new equipment such as, “cameras, radio systems, radar, and pole-topped lights” (On the Issues, 1). With new equipment, double the amount of manpower, and a triple layed fence, the Trump campaign is confident they this is the solution to the immigrant

    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.…

    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.…

    Sadly, Trump would not make a superior president because Trump is racist to Mexicans, Chinese, and Muslims. In particular, Trump plans to build a large wall across the southern American border along Mexico because Trump believes that Mexicans smuggle illegal drugs and illegal immigrants into America. Trump is a firm believer of the stereotype that Mexicans smuggle drugs and immigrants which is unfair being that not everyone is the same and not everyone has these intentions. There are many Mexicans that do not have this objective to harm America. Another example of Trump being racist is towards the Chinese population.…

    According to Mr. Trump “our boarders are not protected” and I agree 100% with him (Trump). Trump says “we need to build a wall across the Southern boarders” and make “Mexico pay for it” (Trump). A nation without borders is not a nation. We have about 11.3 million illegal immigrants in the United States. The United States spends about 100,000 billion to 300,000 billion on illegal immigrants each year.…

    Donald Trump’s Wall Necessary or Unnecessary Donald Trump’s immigration plan has an outrageous bill. He calls for an increase in security along the border that the United State just does not have. Donald Trump’s main point on illegal immigration is, he wants to build the wall on the border of the Texas and Mexico. The question I am posing for this paper is is Donald Trump’s wall cost effective and is it really necessary? The government is already having a monetary problem with the country being almost 16.5 trillion dollars in debt.…

    When a person is born they have no control of what country they are born in, what race they are going to be, nor can they choose the life they live at that age. Therefore children of illegal immigrants should be given birthright citizenship if they are born in the United States. Denying someone citizenship if born in the United States violates the 14th amendment. The 14th amendment has been entrenched in the constitution since 1868, along with granting citizenship to all people born or naturalized in the United States with equal rights and protections under the U.S. laws. It’s not fair that just because a parent is an illegal immigrant, that child isn’t a U.S. citizen even though he or she was born in the United States.…
