Story from the LA Times that cites experts and others about Trump's EO that will "shore-up" enforcement against illegal immigrants in the U.S.

The sensationalized article talks about wild things like roundups and detentions.

They mention possibilities like food stamp recipients here illegally with children born here could be targets.

More possibilities about crops going unpicked and businesses that "cater to" illegals could go broke !!

And of course, it says countries receiving deported people could put a "strain" on the U.S. Government !!

Trump is targeting up to 8 million people for deportation

When President Trump ordered a vast overhaul of immigration law enforcement during his first week in office, he stripped away most restrictions on who should be deported, opening the door for roundups and detentions on a scale not seen in nearly a decade.

Up to 8 million people in the country illegally could be considered priorities for deportation, according to calculations by the Los Angeles Times. They were based on interviews with experts who studied the order and two internal documents that signal immigration officials are taking an expansive view of Trump’s directive.

Far from targeting only “bad hombres,” as Trump has said repeatedly, his new order allows immigration agents to detain nearly anyone they come in contact with who has crossed the border illegally. People could be booked into custody for using food stamps or if their child receives free school lunches.

LA Times....imagine that! The left coast Californez stirring up the pot. They can't wait till it boils over. No such thing is going to happen, but why not put it out there as just another hyped up exaggeration. I'm so sick of liberal lies and innuendo.

I keep hoping that I'll open one of these deportation threads and find out Trumps found a way to deport the progressives.

Well thanks for the clarification, who would have ever, ever thought that illegals are not legal American citizens.

Darn what a shook, where I have been hidden for the last 8 years.

All this laws we have that we have forgotten about it.

Let's hope that Trump is not so idiotic as to round people up and put them in detention camps.

Right now, these people are feeding and housing themselves, at their own expense, from earnings for their labor.

To put them in detention camps simply means tax payers will now feed and house people who were previously independent.

If he wants he can round up and deport immediately. But, no detention camps.

There should be a limit, like no one held in detention for more than 48 hrs, just enough time to arrange a bus or plane for transport to their ultimate foreign destination.

If you can't deport immediately, release back into the population. Let them fend for themselves, and not burden the taxpayers.

If Trump signed an EO authorizing the arrest and deportation of any illegal immigrant receiving and/or using government subsidies, the left couldn't say a word. Other than laugh about an "empty" EO.

They have been telling the country for decades that illegals cannot receive government monies.

Thank GOD!

It is about time that these people are sent back to whence they came and can get in line behind the people that are already in the process of doing the right thing and coming here LEGALLY.

Time to put America first.

Before the open invitation to illegals by Obama.

Expensive Aliens: How Much Do Illegal Immigrants Really Cost?,


The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a conservative advocacy group that favors tighter immigration laws, argues that the answer is clear: illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers more than $100 billion each year.


abcnews.go.com...

How much is the estimate of taxes illegals pay yearly


Study Finds Illegal Immigrants Pay $11.8B in Taxes,


www.americanimmigrationcouncil.org...

Is a lot of propaganda about how much money illegals pay in taxes, but is not much about how much they cost to the tax payer.

We are left to foot the rest of the bill.

LA Times and NY Times are the Newspaper equivalents of CNN. All three are going to catch hell from the government these next 8 years.

Who are these California businesses going to get to work for them for those unlivable wages? Who are the people of California going to get to clean their houses, take care of their lawns, and do other work for such a cheap price, they will need to start doing the stuff themselves.

I realize that not everyone from California is like that, but a lot are, the illegals are doing a lot of those kinds of jobs for people who make way more than they do while not working half as hard.

I don't believe it.

I think what they are doing is looking around and adding up all the "opportunity costs" they can dream up, of having illegals here.

Opportunity costs are fictional things, that represent what one thinks would be saved if these illegals were all legals instead. So, for example, they say many illegals don't pay taxes. The implication is that if they were legal they would pay. But, many legals working in the same cash industries don't pay those taxes either. But, they don't factor that into the math.

When The Donald deports all these people, then we'll find out the truth, whether the undocumented were a net benefit or a net burden.

We'll soon find out. If Donald is good at one thing, it's winning against any and all weaker folk.

8 million less people spending money and paying rent. That is going to hurt, and then we will also have the 20% import tax. How can you be excited for this? I'm shocked how many Americans think Trump is going to make them rich.

Perfect Trump supporter.

And who will spend the welfare now?
And who will have babies and other costly hospital services then skip out on the expensive bills? This is horrible!

8 million people not paying taxes, going to the hospital and not paying, and costing actual tax payers over $113 BILLION dollars a year.
