Immigration control is a major issue in our country right now.
And while liberals are fuming over the fact Trump is trying to halt illegal immigrants, it is a problem that needs to be fixed.
Here’s what Trump plans to do to fix immigration control.
The Root of the Problem: Chain Migration
Earlier this week, President Donald Trump highlighted the potential for violence with mass immigration.
This violence is primarily found in “chain migration.”
“The caravans are made up of some very tough fighters and people,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
There are over 4,000 migrants coming from Central America alone, hoping to seek asylum in the U.S.
And they are continuing their journey despite protests in Mexico.
Even authorities in Mexico are busy trying to stop caravans of these immigrants from Central America from sweeping across their own porous southern border.
There are many reports of the migrants exchanging gunfire with Mexican officials.
“Mexican soldiers hurt, were unable, or unwilling to stop caravan,” Trump wrote.
Trump’s Solution—Stop Them in Their Tracks
President Trump has a plan to prevent these immigrants from causing problems in America.
Trump plans to mobilize troops at the border, saying he will deploy between 10,000 and 15,000 troops to assist ICE and border agents already at work.
These troops will stop the immigrants in their tracks.
He told White House reporters that caravans of illegal immigrants are approaching fast, but that they will not be allowed into the country.
A Bigger Issue to Face
Chain migration not only is dangerous for citizens, but affects their well-being.
Disease and violent crime with so many people coming through is of grave concern to both Mexico and the U.S

An influx of immigrants is costly for taxpayers.
Many immigrants are coming to this country with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
They need healthcare and government subsidies for food and housing.
Immigrants are also taking jobs away from blue-collar American workers who struggle to support their own families.
Many illegal immigrants work construction, farming, and other lower-paying jobs that the unemployed American workforce could use.
With an influx in immigration, American taxpayers are paying for non-citizens to live in this country.
Backlash from Liberal Media
The liberal media continues to fight Trump on every front, working to smear the president before the midterm elections.
Some news sites and Democrat critics say his immigration plan will fail because it is too complex.
Others report that the entire plan will take decades to implement.
USA Today reported:
WASHINGTON — Even if President Trump can convince Congress to pass his plan for limiting family-based immigration — which he calls “chain migration” — it would take over a decade for his proposal to actually reduce legal immigration, according to some analysts.
An American Civil Liberties Union spokesman said that Trump’s plans to send troops to the border is a waste of resources.
And, of course, on behalf of the left-wing ACLU, he called the president “racist” for working to stop thousands from pouring across the border.
The Democrats and liberal media will continue to fight any of President Trump’s ideas for improving the safety and security of our nation.
But the only way to keep America strong is to take care of Americans first.
