It takes time to get things done on Capitol Hill.
Sometimes, the American public is left wondering, “Just how slowly do these wheels move?!”
When it comes to dealing with the country’s crippling illegal immigration problem, things need to move a LOT faster than normal, because we’re drowning in a sea of “undocumented citizens.”
Good news, though: President Donald Trump knows how to grease those massive wheels.
He’s been trying to clamp down hard on illegal immigration and proper deportation of illegal aliens, especially those who commit crimes on U.S. soil.
Trump and the rest of rational America are sick and tired of shelling out hundreds of millions of dollars to support these people. They’re illegal. They shouldn’t be receiving taxpayer money; they should be getting a plane ticket OUT of here.
“…immigration judges will be temporarily reassigned to 12 cities around the country to speed up the deportation of illegal immigrants who have been charged with crimes, according to two administration officials:
The targeted cities are New York; Los Angeles; Miami; New Orleans; San Francisco; Baltimore; Bloomington, Minnesota; El Paso, Texas; Harlingen, Texas; Imperial, California; Omaha, Nebraska; and Phoenix, Arizona.
They were chosen because they are cities which have high populations of illegal immigrants with criminal charges, the officials said.

The named cities account for more than half of the more than 18,000 pending immigration cases involving illegal immigrants who are either facing criminal charges or have been convicted of a crime, according to information provided to Reuters by the Justice Department.”
Of course, there will still be hurdles to clear.
Judge and Chairman of the Board of Immigration Appeals Paul Schmidt added that, “even people who have committed serious crimes can sometimes get asylum.” …that’s just too nauseating for words, but whatever.
It’s another blow to learn that an Obama-era judge stopped Trump’s latest travel ban, but we’re hoping that gets resolved soon enough.
This needs to get done. Our porous borders have been injuring innocent Americans for far, far too long.
