For years patriots and liberty groups have been raising their voices to be heard by the political class: the recurring mantra since the 2009 rally in DC has been "Can you hear us now?" Nobody in DC has been listening.
Say what you like about Donald Trump, he is getting the attention of the political elite and the mainstream media, and he has put legal vs illegal immigration on the front burner. He is getting heard.
After consulting with Sen. Jeff Sessions (see Breitbart here), he announced his immigration policy on his website here. Tea Party Patriots are big on core values. Here are Trump's core values about immigration:
Real immigration reform puts the needs of working people first – not wealthy globetrotting donors. We are the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of our own. That must change. Here are the three core principles of real immigration reform:
1. A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border.
2. A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.
3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation. Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans.
