Donald Trump Endorses Amnesty for Illegal Aliens
Disappointing, but not surprising.

Disappointing, but not surprising.

The depressing reality though that is that most of the Republican field has endorsed amnesty in one form or another. Sothis isn't much of a surprise. Trump is using his own vocabulary, but he's echoing the same amnesty talking points you could hear from Marco Rubio... or Barack Obama.

During Friday's interview, Trump said the U.S. should take a two-step approach to the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the country.

"Well, the first thing we do is take the bad ones — of which there are, unfortunately, quite a few," said Trump, who owns three New Jersey golf courses and once owned three Atlantic City casinos. "We take the bad ones and get 'em the hell out. We get 'em out."

But he said the country should take a different approach with "the other ones" — i.e., undocumented immigrants who have "done a good job" since arriving in the U.S.

"I'm a very big believer in the merit system," Trump said. "I have to tell you: Some of these people have been here, they've done a good job. You know, in some cases, sadly, they've been living under the shadows. ... If somebody's been outstanding, we try and work something out.

"But before we do anything, we have to secure the border because the border is like having no border," he added.

I'm sure some people will be tempted to cheer this, but compare it to Obama's own amnesty executive order.

These executive actions crack down on illegal immigration at the border, prioritize deporting felons not families, and require certain undocumented immigrants to pass a criminal background check and pay their fair share of taxes as they register to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

Cracking Down on Illegal Immigration at the Border:  The President’s actions increase the chances that anyone attempting to cross the border illegally will be caught and sent back. Continuing the surge of resources that effectively reduced the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border illegally this summer, the President’s actions will also centralize border security command-and-control to continue to crack down on illegal immigration.

Deporting Felons, Not Families: The President’s actions focus on the deportation of people who threaten national security and public safety. He has directed immigration enforcement to place anyone suspected of terrorism, violent criminals, gang members, and recent border crossers at the top of the deportation priority list.

Deporting the "bad people" first is already an Obama talking point. People may think they can trust Trump, but not Obama or any of the Republicans, but like them, Trump frontloaded rhetoric about enforcement while keeping the amnesty out back.

And "secure the border first" has been the talking point of every Republican amnesty proponent.

Marco Rubio still supports legal status and a slow road to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants, but now says the government must convince Americans the border is secure before taking those steps.

Trump had already indicated support for amnesty earlier, now he's being clearer about it.

This is in line with what CNN’s Chris Moody reported Trump saying during a press conference in Chicago at the end of June. When asked what he would do about the illegal immigrants already residing in the country once the border was secured, Trump replied, “give them a path,” according to Moody.

When The Daily Caller sought clarification at the time from the Trump campaign, a senior adviser replied with a circuitous answer that emphasized that Trump wanted to secure the border and didn’t believe in “amnesty,” but wouldn’t explicitly reject a pathway to legalization.

Nobody likes the A-word, including Rubio and Ryan who spent the better part of a year arguing that legalizing illegal aliens isn't amnesty if they have to pay a fine. Even Obama made that argument.

The next step would be to get Trump to lay out criteria for who gets to stay and how many of them it would apply to, but good luck getting an answer.

Why do we need and answer when we already know. Trump is just one billionaire, rich enough to finance his own campaign and, to a certain extent, shoot off his mouth without worrying about behind the scene financers but like Donald Sterling learned, one billionaire can't stand up to the billionaire boys club, their wealth is tied directly into world financial system of which cheap immigrant labor is an important prop. No, Trump will toe the line, so we get to listen to his phony tough talk and have to put up with his bad toupe in our faces for nothing. Jerry PDX

You know. the Donald gave the System a chance to limp along for a few more years and the System turned down the opportunity for its survival. What to do? Join the Mobile Infantry. Get Citizenship. These bad years will pass, and a New Order will rise. Be a part of the Future. Do you apes want to live forever?

I think there are certain things he will say, because he thinks he needs to say them to get elected - he needs to placate the crazy media a little and who knows that once he is president he might just crack down on every illegal immigrant in the country. I think Trump is still a good candidate out of all these losers. I actually do believe that he is pro-white, politically incorrect, and will tell it like it is when he believes it's safe to do so. He's almost telling it like it is already, now - a crucial time and with the media hounding and jeering every sentence he utters. He will do the best job of every one of the candidates, I think, unless Pat Buchanan magically somehow became president, which will be on the twelfth of never.
