Former Adviser Says Trump Will Implement ‘Spectacular Migration Crackdown’

T. Belman. This story broke a few days ago.  I looked up Stephen Miller on Twitter and couldn’t believe the vitriol levelled against him for these policies. It was vicious and beyond belief.

“The latest CBS news poll reveals that President Biden and Democrats generally are out of sync with the American people on immigration, with massive majorities of even Independents and Hispanics disapproving of the administration’s handling of the issue. That issue and Biden’s feckless handling of the border present an opening for GOP candidates in the 2024 election,”  Trump is obviously making this a huge issue for next yeart’s election.

This issue will no doubt reverberate in Israel in our fight against the TSS.

A former Trump immigration adviser says that activists ‘won’t know what’s happening.’

A former White House immigration adviser proclaimed that a second Trump term would include stricter policies targeting illegal immigration, saying it would be a “spectacular migration crackdown.”

“Any activists who doubt President Trump’s resolve in the slightest are making a drastic error: Trump will unleash the vast arsenal of federal powers to implement the most spectacular migration crackdown,” President Donald Trump’s former adviser, Stephen Miller, told The New York Times over the weekend. “The immigration legal activists won’t know what’s happening.”

The former adviser had been President Trump’s speechwriter and also led his immigration policy, which included constructing a border wall along the U.S.–Mexico border and initiating more deportations.

Mr. Miller told the paper that President Trump’s immigration plans are being crafted to avoid having to pass congressional legislation. During his first term in office, the former president used a myriad of executive orders to implement his policies, of which many were challenged in courts.

If elected in 2024, President Trump would again attempt to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a policy that allows certain people who meet requirements to request a grant of deferred action, said Mr. Miller. Those who are given DACA can be eligible to work legally in the United States.

Meanwhile, the former acting director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Tom Homan, told the NY Times that he would like to return to the Trump administration to “help to organize and run the largest deportation operation this country’s ever seen.”

Mr. Miller said that such a plan “will be a labor-market disruption celebrated by American workers, who will now be offered higher wages with better benefits to fill these jobs,” adding, “Americans will also celebrate the fact that our nation’s laws are now being applied equally, and that one select group is no longer magically exempt.”

Elaborating, Mr. Miller said a future Trump administration would try to increase the number of ICE agents, saying that other federal law enforcement agencies would be reassigned for the task. State National Guard members, local police officers, and others would be deputized to carry out immigration control measures, he told the paper.

He stated that Mr. Trump would like to invoke the Insurrection Act at the border, which would allow the usage of federal troops to arrest illegal immigrants. “Bottom line,” he noted, “President Trump will do whatever it takes.”

In a recent rally in Florida earlier this month, President Trump vowed to carry out the “largest domestic deportation operation in American history” and said that a number of criminals are coming through the border. He also warned that people with “bad intentions” are also pouring in.

The former president also said he would “terminate all work permits for illegal aliens and demand that Congress send me a bill outlawing all welfare payments to illegal migrants of any kind.”
In response, President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign issued a critical statement to CNN regarding Mr. Miller’s comments and the Trump plans, describing it as “the horrifying reality that awaits the American people if Donald Trump is allowed anywhere near the Oval Office again.”

The policies crafted by Mr. Miller “are meant to stoke fear and divide us, betting a scared and divided nation is how he wins this election,” said Ammar Moussa, a spokesperson for the campaign.Record Numbers

Since President Joe Biden assumed office in January 2021, illegal immigrants or would-be illegal immigrants have shown up at the U.S.–Mexico border in high numbers, leading officials in states like New York—which are thousands of miles from the border—to issue warnings about the phenomenon.

For the fiscal year 2023, there were around 2.5 million encounters with illegal immigrants at the U.S.–Mexico border, topping the previous record that was set in 2022, according to government data. More than 2.3 million apprehensions and more than 1.7 million apprehensions, respectively, were recorded in 2022 and 2021, the data shows.

The U.S. Border Patrol made around 220,000 encounters along the U.S.–Mexico border in September, according to data. That’s a 15 percent increase from the month before.

Republicans and President Trump have said that the surge in illegal immigration is largely due to the Biden administration’s policies, which they have described as lax and ineffective. Other 2024 GOP candidates, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, have said they would implement U.S. border security measures.

In response, President Biden’s administration has recently said it would build some 20 miles of border wall. The administration has also resumed deportation flights to Venezuela, according to a recent statement.

“It is critical that Venezuelans understand that those who have arrived here after July 31, 2023, are not eligible for such protection,” Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement, “and instead will be removed when they are found to not have a legal basis to stay.”

  1. I am not surprised by the media response to this. Democrats collectively suffered massive brain damage as a result of Trump’s election in 2016, and can be easily triggered by anything he says.

    The triggered individuals experience spasms of anger, vitriol, and murderous threats accompanied by frenzied efforts to organize mass looting campaigns and campaigns to burn down inner cities, destroying many minority owned businesses, and leaving whole parts of cities in rubble.

    Due to the high number of brain damaged anti-Trump people in the federal government who are equally triggered, none of these individuals who organized campaigns to loot and burn inner cities have been prosecuted.

    Hillary sent an email to Donna Brazile 10/17/2016 warning, “If that (explicative deleted) Bastard Wins, we all hang from nooses….”

    Ever since then, the foaming at the mouth anti-Trump individuals have lost their collective minds at the possibility that Trump might possibly be elected again. They feel it is their divine right to impede this possibility at all costs, including unleashing never ending lawfare on him, his family, his associates, and of course, exaggerating to the nth degree every single statement he makes.

    The problem with this is that the American people now see this in all its nakedness. Americans, even those who never voted for Trump and never will vote for Trump feel it is simply unfair to try to destroy one’s political opponent using all the powers of an unleashed surveillance state. Didn’t Hitler, Mao, and Stalin do these things? Is this really the kind of American we want to live in?

    This is the twilight of the dystopia Americans have been living with as if it were a nightmare from which we cannot escape since Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.

    The Biden election coup was a continuation of the Obama “radical transformation of America” and the Biden team accomplished massive looting of the American treasury for a failed war in Ukraine, continuing looting of the treasury to give money to the taliban in Afghanistan every month to this day, more looting of the treasury to give money to Iran, the PA, Hamas, the Free Syrian Army, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria.

    Beside the failed Ukraine effort, the failed Afghanistan exit, and the empowerment of Iran, Biden has spent trillions of dollars on millions of illegal immigrants living in luxury hotels in NYC and elsewhere.

    Americans have difficulty wrapping our minds around the total boondoggle spending efforts while hard working Americans can barely keep up with the cost of feeding their families and their basic living expenses, while illegal immigrants are given free cellphones, hotels, free flights to wherever in America they want to go, and welfare. Some cities are automatically registering everyone on welfare to vote, including illegal aliens.

    If someone wanted a way to destroy America, root and branch, surely they must have thought this was the fastest way to do it.

    Somehow we must endure for God, our country, our families, and for Israel

  2. I heard and saw Trump say that in an interview. He said there will be mass deportations of illegal aliens and Hamas supporters and pro-Hamas schools and universities will lose their accreditation and funding.
