The US Constitution does not say this. The Supreme Court does.

Deport him with his parents until he reaches majority age; or, place him in foster care until he reaches majority age.

This is what Trump is doing, specifically to drive down the unemployment rate among African-Americans. It worked.
Drlee wrote:And I will go further and tell you that if they did start arresting the 5% employers and closing businesses employing a few hundred Americans in every city and town there would not be a politician left standing.
So now you understand why we want that done.

Cut welfare benefits for those who don't work. It turns things around quickly. You don't see this in societies like the UAE. There is no begging, no homeless, no wastrels lingering on welfare. There are plenty of poor people, but they work six days a week, 10 hours a day.
Drlee wrote:So Trump did nothing about illegal immigration other than put up some very expensive and completely ineffective pieces of fence.
No. He's raided chicken processing plants, etc.--forcing illegal aliens out of work, and forcing employers to hire black Americans instead. Illegal aliens aren't a union threat.
Unthinking Majority wrote:There's a practical problem with trying to arrest 10 million people hiding across America.
It's not a practical problem. It's an economic issue. Rents don't get paid, groceries don't get sold. Landlords like illegal aliens better than blacks, because illegal aliens pay on time, pay in cash, and don't play the unlawful detainer game in the courts. Blacks know how to game the system. However, by throwing illegal aliens out of work and forcing people to hire the blacks that were otherwise unemployed, Trump drove down the unemployment rate for blacks. A lot of them really like him now.

Plenty of politicians are obviously in the human trafficking, sex trafficking, and drug trafficking businesses as well. So their opposition isn't based on some "moral" position. They are all about exploitation.
Unthinking Majority wrote:Many on the left cry racism and humanitarian outrage any time a politician tries to enforce immigration laws.
Most of these laws were passed by old-line leftists with a labor union disposition. It tells you a lot about politicians these days. They are anti-worker on both sides of the aisle.
Unthinking Majority wrote:Neo-Nazis didn't create Trump, the GOP and Democrat establishment did. 46.1% of US voters aren't neo-nazis. Swing stakes like Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylavia etc went red in 2016 because they have been decimated by manufacturing jobs (autos, steel etc) leaving the US and Trump promised to bring them back, and to his credit he tried. He slapped tons of steel tariffs on other countries. I'm not saying i'd vote for Trump in 2020, because I wouldn't, i'm saying reasons why he's appealing to a lot of non-urban barely-educated Americans.
Illegal aliens also take away a lot of sole prop type jobs like gardener, maid, etc., which really pisses off working class Americans. That's why the illegal immigration issue is a big deal for them.
Unthinking Majority wrote:Sanctuary cities are a problem though. These mayors are in direct defiance of federal law, and they choose to harbor criminals, which is against the law. I don't see why these mayors shouldn't be arrested by the FBI and charged, but of course that would never happen.
They need to be defunded.
