US immigration policies and its effects
These couple of months have been very important in making Trump’s intentions known with regards to the immigration laws that he is trying to impose. He passed a series of laws that aimed at restricting general immigration unlike his predecessors. From making green cards difficult to obtain for poor immigrants to abolishing birth-right citizenship for anyone born in the US, he is trying to restrict people from US citizenship for “making America great again” CITATION Pam19 \l 3081 (Pam Fessler). These attempts have not gone unnoticed by the senators of several states and the judiciary, as usually common with his immigration policies. Nineteen states, as well as the capital D.C. have challenged the rule which enables the state authorities to detain refugee children separate from their families for a twenty-day period, which was thankfully abolished. But the damage is done. The “champion of human rights” is already facing tremendous opposition at home. His concept of “immigrant invasion has already given a lot of momentum for the democrats regarding the 2020 US General Elections CITATION LiZ19 \l 3081 (Zhou). For a nation built on the sweat of immigrants, it is very disturbing to know that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services are going to shut its international division. Instead of improving the current US economic situation, as was the given punch line, these draconian laws have had an opposite effect. The Department of Homeland Security had to spend more money in order to tighten border security CITATION Off19 \l 3081 (Department of Homeland Security). These funds, diverted from the Emergency Management Agency have dampened the efforts against the white nationalist organizations, whose rise has been admitted publicly by the Kevin McAleenan, the acting Secretary of Homeland Security. Every US president leaves a different legacy while his term in this office. But when his policies start damaging the government’s ability to follow smart and public friendly policies, or even fail to give relief to the general populace, a wise and responsible leader should think little about his individual choices and more about his own nation’s overall security. America comes first, not the pride of a businessman-president who has zero prior political experience.
