AMNESTY WATCH: Trump's Grand Immigration Bargain: Either Take Border Security Seriously, Or No Deal On 'Dreamers'

Immigration: Another promise fulfilled? As part of a deal that would give so-called "dreamers" a path to permanent residency or citizenship in the U.S., President Trump unveiled a 70-point immigration plan that leans heavily toward reinforcing the U.S. border against illegal crossings. It's long overdue.
Trump's plan, submitted on Sunday to Congress, is part of a quid pro quo to toughen our border security while giving those who are the children of illegal immigrants a shot at staying here permanently.
It goes a long way toward doing what Trump promised during his campaign in 2016: get tough on America's border security, which, under President Obama, had become an open joke. Among other things, the plans would give federal agents more power to nab illegals as they cross and to detain, hold and deport them more quickly if they're caught on U.S. soil. He also calls for a border wall and more agents to police the border with Mexico.
Among its 70 provisions, the plan goes a long way toward closing many of the loopholes in U.S. law that have for years made a travesty of our nation's border — including lax asylum standards, unaccompanied alien children, visa overstays and giving all levels of government, federal, state and local, the power detain those here illegally. This would, in effect, put an end to the so-called sanctuary movement, which is really little more than a refusal to obey U.S. law.
