Trump puts Americans first, not illegals

Voters are disgusted with Republicans and Democrats - and that's why Trump is smoking his GOP competition

 

What I'm about to tell you is politically incorrect, but it needs to be said.

There's a reason why Donald Trump is smoking his Republican competition: He wants to put Americans first -- not the illegals.

Trump understands a fundamental truth: The United States of America has been invaded by millions of illegals from Mexico and parts due south.

The illegals are pillaging and plundering our economy. Some are raping and murdering our fellow countrymen. They have been given accommodation at the expense of the American taxpayer.

And yet our elected leaders in Congress and the White House have chosen to stand down as the sovereignty of our great nation has been violated.

So while the politicians and pundits have scampered away from the issue – Trump stepped up to the plate and offered a concise plan that would secure our border and restore our sovereignty.

The plan, which you can read here, calls for defunding sanctuary cities, building a border wall, ending the catch and release program, and the mandatory deportation of all criminal aliens.

Trump’s plan was heralded by none other than Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., the lone voice crying out in the political wilderness on this issue of national importance.

“This is exactly the plan America needs,” Sessions said. “Polling shows this plan will appeal broadly to all segments of the electorate; prioritizing the just demands of loyal, everyday Americans who have been shunned by a governing elite.”

Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina raised doubts about Mr. Trump's political affiliation.

"It's not clear to me that Donald Trump is a Republican, first of all, based upon his willingness to run a third-party bid, and some of the positions that he's taken," Fiorina told ABC's This Week.

With all due respect to Ms. Fiorina, the fact that Trump may not be beholden to a political party very well may be the point.

Voters are disgusted with the political incompetence of both Republicans and Democrats.

And should Donald Trump pull off a historic upset and win the White House, I suspect illegals won't be the only folks running back across the border.
