Immigration was arguably the single most important issue for Trump during the 2016 campaign. He’s in office because of his tough stance not despite it.
His supporters are still waiting on the wall but there’s a lot that Trump has been doing to regain our sovereignty that deserves attention.
Over the years, a lot of countries out there have been refusing to take back their citizens who were deported from our country.
That’s not going to fly anymore under Trump and he reminded two countries of that fact recently.
From The Daily Caller:
The Trump administration has hit certain government officials from Burma and Laos with visa sanctions as punishment for both countries’ refusal to take back their citizens the U.S. is trying to deport, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Tuesday.
Going forward, the U.S. embassy in Rangoon, Burma, will halt the issuance of tourist and business non-immigrant visas to senior officials in the ministries of Labor, Immigration, Population and Home Affairs. In Laos, the U.S. mission will no longer grant tourist and business nonimmigrant visas to senior officials from the Laotian Ministry of Public Security.
The restrictions also apply to the officials’ immediate families, DHS said.
The sanctions come after a review by DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who determined that Burma and Laos have “denied or unreasonably delayed” accepting citizens ordered removed from the U.S. They will remain in place until Nielsen notifies Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that cooperation on deportees has improved, according to DHS.
Gotta love that.
There’s a new sheriff in town and he’s not messing around when it comes to immigration.
