What about his immigration policy bothers you? I'd like to discuss it.

For me, the thing that bothers me is how he singles out Mexicans. It makes him sound very, very racist. And for context, I am an "anchor baby" of legal pakistani immigrants so immigration is a very personal issue for me. There's more than 300,000 filipino illegals in america, more than 200,000 indian illegals, and roughly 50, 000 irish illegals. Trump has never mentioned deporting those immigrants.

Trump has said time and time again that he wants to go door to door and en mass deport Mexican people. This is not an immigration policy, this is a racist anti-mexican policy.

Edit: source "we have. No. Choice."

Edit 2: "the gangs in baltimore, in chicago, and in ferguson many of those gangs are illegal aliens" ... yeah he doesn't know what he's talking about

We have some 30 million (not 11 million) illegal immigrants from Mexico. The illegal immigrant problem is an illegal Mexican immigrant problem.

I'm with you on that one. I am considered an anchor baby too (legal Mexican immigrants), which is ridiculous since they came here legally, and after reading Trump's agenda on immigration looks like I qualify to be deported back to my "homeland" since I am Mexican too. Shit this whole time I thought I was an American citizen. Guess not.

Going door to door with presumably guns to deport just Mexicans is pretty racist, but what actually scares me is the door to door part. They're gonna break down doors and raid suspects homes? That's some fascist shit right there. Let's not let the government do that, they might really like it.

He acknowledges the 14th amendment, but that it is being exploited right now. Should we allow illegal immigrants access to benefits just because they have an anchor baby? Should they get subsidies and free health care? All without having to pay taxes? They are sucking the system dry, then sending money they make back across the border.

Do you think we should allow illegal parents to stay just cause they have a legal baby?

A wall is a stupid idea. Put the onus on businesses to verify the work status of employees and have unannounced audits with extreme punishments for non complaince. They'll self deport without readily avaiable job.

Israel has a dam good wall, maybe they could share some of what they are doing. But I agree that changing the laws here would be the most practical place to start.

Trump is expanding E-verify nationwide and tripling the number of ICE agents, so he is doing both.

I completely agree with this. Although many immigrants are already payed under the table. Why is building a wall a stupid idea? It would promote legal immigration rather than illegal immigration.

The wall stops desperate people from crossing, while organized criminals will just find a way around it.

His plan is to get all the illegal aliens legal citizenship so that they can become productive members of society. The wall will help prevent desperate people from coming over illegally, and to promote legal immigration to the United State. Organized criminals are always going to find a way around, even if we build the wall out of lasers and automated turrets.
