The Trump White House upgrade is almost fully installed on the hard drive of America, leaning heavily on the motherboard of the constitution. One of the last little pieces of the puzzle is going to be to remove some of it’s former malware in the form of illegal aliens.
The Obama administration made them feel very at home, even going so far as to hand out prizes to anyone smart or athletic enough to swim the river/climb the wall or whatever their chosen method of entry was.
However, according to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, that’s not about to change.

Kelly appeared on “Meet the Press” Sunday, and said that he was going to be moving away from the Obama administration’s policies on illegal immigration. Previously, illegal immigrants caught committing “minor” crimes like DUIs would not be deported. Kelly said that’s all about to change.
Host Chuck Todd asked what would qualify now for deportation. “Well, someone, as an example, with multiple DUIs,” Kelly responded. “Even a single DUI, depending on other aspects, would get you into the system. [Y]ou have to remember that there’s a system, a legal justice system in place.”
Carl F. Horowitz, a D.C. policy consultant, likewise added, “[i]t is a triumph of hope over experience to imagine that a career criminal will exhibit a capacity for self-reform if coaxed to try harder.”
“Moreover, and this is key, (t)he United States can ill afford to serve as the world’s crime control and rehabilitation center. It is a message we ought to be sending other nations, as we keep doors open to the law-abiding only.”
Law-abiding immigrants who want to come to the United States, fleeing violence or persecution in their countries, should have a clear path to citizenship. But immigrants who commit crimes should be given no leeway — those crimes should not be tolerated, ever.
It is incredibly refreshing to know that law enforement is actually going to be able to enforce the law. Perhaps this will inspire a little more hesitance from illegals to commit the crimes in the first place.
