As someone with a relative who is currently applying to become a permanent citizen of the United States, I can attest to the difficulty in the immigration admittance process. My aunt has to fill out several packets of paperwork and has to attend English classes to improve her English speaking and writing. Naturally, I find myself in opposition to Trump’s immigration policies. What he believes is that immigrants are taking away jobs from “true American citizens” and are one of the main sources of crime. What he’s actually doing is arresting basically everyone undocumented and separating thousands families – of course, with no remorse. Trump is terrorizing and, in some sense, persecuting immigration communities of color.
In paragraph four of the article, it says that agents justify that they are committing to Trump’s policies by following the law and how just now there is soaring morale and whatnot. I find it interesting that these agents have said nothing against the reform and blindly accepted the fate of immigrants. If anything, this just goes to prove how meek the whole ICE and Border Patrol and even worse, possibly how racist they are. This is because laws don’t enforce themselves. It is the people who decide what and how to enforce.

If they really believed that the laws were unnecessary or morally wrong, they haven’t showed it.Higher workers’ moral is the most infuriating part because they were obviously frustrated with their jobs in admitting immigrants. If they don’t like the intensity of the workload in the first place, why bother? In response to the talk about laws, I believe that it isn’t quite simple to pass legislations.
Fortunately. The Republicans in the House are divided on the topic, giving some hope for a turn around back to a welcoming America. Former President Obama created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in attempt to somewhat regulate immigration, allowing some foreign individuals “who entered the country as minors… and remained in the country illegally, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work.” Though Trump made promises to end DACA and pass legislation of his own, his congressional team is daunted by the difficult legislative system.
In 2006, Republicans controlled the White House and the Senate. In 2013, the Democrats controlled them both like the Republicans in 2006. In both 2006 and 2013, however, the Republicans were the ones who dominated the House. The point where the Republicans split apart is if the current Speaker of the House will propose any bills and whether they will support it or not.
Paul Ryan will likely not do anything about the topic unless the Senate Republicans can pass a bill and that he is absolutely sure he can attract House Republican votes, which means a more radical bill. But this means the possibility of losing House Democratic votes. So as you can see, it’s really difficult for Trump’s whole anti-immigration laws to pass. However, that does not mean that the American people who are anxious that it won’t happen just sit around and wait. They should express their opinions and refuse to abide by Trump’s policies so specifically.
