Donald Trump recently made an ostensibly unpopular proposal that America’s illegal population should be deported, as was done under Eisenhower.
It made me think of a NumbersUSA solution point: “Enforce the laws already on the books”, and many illegals will return home voluntarily.
Couldn’t Trump win popular support by calling for the enforcement of laws already on the books? By enforcing the law, illegals would find employment difficult, thus having to return home. Employers would then need to *gasp* obey the law like the rest of us and hire legal workers. Market wages would be pressured higher.
Trump 2016: Bring Troops Home. Bring Jobs Home. Enforce Immigration Laws. End ZIRP.
