The Trump Administrationís Immigration Agenda Protects American Workers, Taxpayers, And Sovereignty

Press Release:

"To defend American Workers and Families from every walk of life, my Administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to secure the Southern Border of the United States."
  — President Donald J. Trump

    SECURING OUR BORDER: President Donald J. Trump is continuing to safeguard America's borders from uncontrolled migration, dangerous criminals, and lethal drugs.

  • President Trump has taken action to end catch and release and stop the surge of migrants flooding to our border.
  • The President secured historic cooperation agreements with the Governments of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala to control migration flows.
    • At President Trump's urging, Mexico enhanced its border security efforts and deployed thousands of troops to address this crisis.
  • The border wall is being built as promised-with more than 100 miles of wall constructed and much more to come.
  • As a result of President Trump's efforts, illegal immigration has plummeted in recent months.
    • Border apprehensions at the southern border have dropped by 75% since May of last year-the height of the border crisis.
    • Apprehensions have declined for 8 consecutive months.

    SAVING AMERICAN LIVES: President Trump is committed to stopping the flow of criminal aliens and deadly drugs across the border and into our communities.

  • President Trump has empowered the brave men and women of immigration law enforcement and given them the tools they need to keep our country safe.
  • Last year, the heroic men and women of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested more than 120,000 criminal aliens.
  • These criminals were responsible for nearly 2,000 homicides, more than 5,000 sexual assaults, more than 10,000 burglaries, and more than 45,000 assaults.
  • President Trump is standing up to "sanctuary" states and localities who harbor and protect criminal illegal aliens.
    • The United States should be a sanctuary for law-abiding American citizens, not criminal aliens.
  • President Trump is calling on Congress to pass the Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act.
    • This critical legislation enables victims of open borders to sue the radical and lawless jurisdictions responsible for the harm inflicted.

    REFORMING OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM TO PUT AMERICA FIRST: President Trump wants a merit-based immigration system that protects American workers and serves the national interest.

  • The Administration is working to propose legislation that would replace our randomized system of legal immigration with one based on skill and merit.
    • President Trump is committed to restoring integrity to our immigration system.
  • President Trump is also calling on Congress to finally pass voter I.D. legislation to protect our elections.
