Oh sure, there are things you can point at when it comes to a Trump Presidency and say “that’s better than it was.”
For example, illegal invaders. No, folks, they’re not immigrants. They’re criminal invaders. You may love one, you may live with one or more, they may have come here just wanting a better life but the fact is that their first act was to violate the law of this nation and they did it to access the wealth and benefits of this nation — in other words, with the intent to steal that to which they were not entitled to.
There’s a legal way to come and live in the United States. It happens to be somewhat selective, and with good reason. Nations do not exist without borders, a common language and a common culture. No nation is or ever should be obligated to modify any of those three for someone who is not a citizen and wishes to come — it’s the other way around, and the reason nations have immigration laws is to provide some assurance that those who come will change their behavior to respect said border and assimilate into the existing language and culture.
If you want to see what happens when you don’t respect that I direct you to the fine doctor lady now under arrest in Michigan who is accused of mutilating girl’s genitals for religious reasons, otherwise known as female genital mutilation. Would you care to guess her religious affiliation?
It is exactly this sort of event that highlights why nations have every reason to impose constraints on immigration. No, those constraints aren’t perfect, and no, not everyone who refuses to accede to cultural norms is an immigrant. But that’s why these laws are not only Constitutional they’re also both reasonable and necessary.
Unless, of course, you like the idea of having your daughter’s clitoris cut off.
