Trump Needs To Fire These Two People Now To Fix Immigration

Longtime Trump supporters tout the phrase “promises made, promises kept,” and surely President Trump has kept many of his campaign pledges including cutting taxes, appointing conservative judges, and growing the economy. But on his most important issue, immigration, Trump has fulfilled only a few of the commitments he made.
Despite the importance of immigration, Trump has yet to deliver on his promises like building a border wall, enacting mandatory E-Verify, creating a merit-based immigration system, or ending the Diversity Visa Lottery.
While Trump’s legislative agenda has been stalled, the number of border crossings has escalated to the highest level since 2014, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. There are also negative economic consequences on Trump’s working-class base. Even though millions of jobs have been created in the U.S. over the last year, more than 45 percent of new hires were foreign-born workers, reported the Department of Labor Statistics in April.
With the 2018 midterm election looming around the corner, Trump is going to need to re-energize the base that swept him into office in 2016. According to polls conducted by Harvard-Harris and Quinnipiac, immigration remains the most important issue to Republican voters.
