2017 will end with major victories by the Trump administration. We’ve gone over them in detail throughout the year. But few can deny that Trump’s first year in office has been historic.
Next year will be even more crucial. Many seats in Congress will be up for grabs. It will be a make or break year for GOP in Washington. It’s vital that they get behind the President to fulfill his vision to make American great again.
News has reached us of Trump’s priorities for 2018. And it’s all about the Wall.
From Washington Examiner:
President Trump’s second year in office likely will focus on overhauling the legal immigration system, after combatting illegal immigration during his first year…
The number of illegal immigrants who Customs and Border Protection officers apprehended at U.S. borders dropped 24 percent from fiscal 2016 to fiscal 2017 to the lowest level since 1971…
Trump in January signed an executive order instructing the Department of Homeland Security to ramp up immigration enforcement, but the department is struggling with a lack of funding…
“The border wall will be a major initiative for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in 2018 – once funded. Another major initiative is the hiring of Border Patrol agents and CBP officers. We’ve already put processes in place and are building momentum on the recruiting front,” Hetlage said…
While the administration waits for Congress to find a legislative solution for DACA, it has moved on its own to scale back old programs that have gone unchecked.
There are plenty of fronts in the war on illegal immigration. We need more border agents. DACA and other toxic programs must be eliminated. Congress and the President must reform the immigration system. And of course, we must build the wall.
It might seem impossible to accomplish all these goals. With Democrats and some Republicans opposing the President. But Trump’s a master negotiator. If anyone can get a deal made, it’s him. Don’t be surprised to hear of historic deals coming out in the coming months. Deals that will secure the border wall and improve legal immigration.
The only question is: will the left actually get on board? For a year they’ve opposed the President. It’s only hurt them. Perhaps they will finally grow up and start working with him. But will they?
We’ll have to wait and see.
