Trump’s enforcement policy doing its job
We are grateful to the AJC for the recent news report (“Fear sets in among metro immigrants amid crackdown,” News, March 12). It is music to the ears of the pro-enforcement American majority that “undocumented workers” are “selling off their cars and homes and preparing to return to their native countries.” After eight years of the Obama administration’s fake news of “record deportations,” we see real distress in the illegal alien community. Which is exactly the purpose of President Trump’s enforcement policy.
The straw man argument that “it is impossible to deport 11-20 million illegals” is now meeting the reality that fear of the law results in many illegals migrating out of the U.S. on their own.
After being appointed by President Clinton to recommend remedies for the illegal immigration crisis in the mid ’90s, the late U.S. Rep. Barbara Jordan told Congress “Unless this country does a better job in curbing illegal immigration, we risk irreparably undermining our commitment to legal immigration.” We have been advancing the ‘Jordan Doctrine’ from here for nearly 15 years and happily note that Donald Trump and the AJC are validating our work.
