The biggest issue of our time is immigration.
Whether folks want to believe it or not, the displacement and migration of large groups of people is a global issue that will have unprecedented influence over the future.
This problem is mainly plaguing the Western world, because leftists are crafting policies that allow for anyone to invade without considering the long-term consequences.
In Europe, Muslims are the invaders, which is honestly worse than what the US is facing. But America’s problem is no joke either.
Central and South Americans are being funneled into the US thanks to liberals trying to take a demographic stranglehold over the US, which will ensure election victories from here on out.
It was practically a foregone conclusion that this scheme would carry on unimpeded, that is, until Trump emerged on the scene.
The president has thrown a massive wrench into the plans of the Left, as his election alone, as well as his policies, are already having a dramatic effect on illegal immigration.
As reported at the Washington Examiner, because the president has “taken the handcuffs off of law enforcement,” the nation’s chief immigration official revealed Tuesday that deportation targets have surged and that he’s planning to deploy more agents and resources to “sanctuary cities” to arrest illegal criminals.
Thomas D. Homan, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in an interview that since Trump entered office, illegal border crossings have fallen by nearly 70 percent, “a historic low.”
Adding to that amazing news is that arrests inside the country have jumped 40 percent as well.
“You can like President Trump, not like him, like his policies, not like his policies, but one thing no one can argue with is the effect they’ve had,” said Homan, the former chief ICE enforcement boss and a 30-year immigration agency veteran.
He said that under Trump, the policy shift has been radical, which has been welcomed with open arms by agents and officials.
“You’d think everybody would be celebrating these policies,” he said.
“Now they have meaning to their jobs,” said Homan, speaking about Border Patrol and ICE agents.
“What this president has done is taken the handcuffs off of law enforcement officers who are charged with enforcing immigration laws,” he added.
With the massive drop in illegals crossing into the US, ICE has been able to reallocate resources to interior of the country, which has allowed for better policing and apprehension of criminal illegals.

With Trump at the helm and ICE with a reinvigorated spirit, the primary target is the 300-plus traitorous sanctuary cities that are defying federal law and protecting illegals.
Many refuse to cooperate with ICE, ignoring requests for handovers and deportation proceedings, opting to let criminals roam the streets.
Homan called sanctuaries “ludicrous,” adding, “In the America I grew up in, cities didn’t shield people who violated the law.”
Unfortunately, the Left and Obama have done a marvelous job fundamentally transforming America, just as they said they would. Protecting criminals is liberal policy these days, at least those that further their agenda.
But things are looking good on the immigration front thus far. Let’s hope that 8 years down the line, we can say the same thing.
