Students at George Washington University argued that a quote from Barack Obama on immigration was “racist” when they were told that it was said by President Donald Trump.
During an immigration address in 2014, President Barack Obama announced that America would continue to deploy a slate of aggressive immigration policies that included the deportation of violent criminals. In the address, Obama bragged that deportations of criminals during his presidency were up 80 percent.
We are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s why we’re going to keep focusing on threats to our security.
