Donald’s got a new plan to fix the border problem—it’s so outside the box, Democrats are in an uproar.
Former Marine Andrew Tahmooressi made international headlines in 2013 when he accidentally made a wrong turn and crossed into Mexico with his legal firearms. Mexico’s zero-tolerance gun policy led to the Marine’s immediate detainment.
Tahmooressi was then jailed, beaten, and given little food and water by Mexican authorities for seven months.
As the illegal immigration debate rages, many on the Left are demanding that the Constitutional rights of non-citizens be honored. Democrats are specifically demanding that those entering the country illegally have their due process rights respected.
But where were Tahmooressi’s due process rights? He was imprisoned immediately, and when he did finally get his day in court it was by no means quick. The Mexican system of justice doesn’t even call for a trial by jury.
The President has had enough of this ridiculous double standard and is calling for zero tolerance against people who don’t respect our laws.
President Donald Trump said on Sunday that people who enter the United States illegally should be sent back immediately to where they came from without any judicial process, likening them to invaders who are trying to “break into” the country.
His proposal drew immediate criticism from legal analysts and immigrant rights advocates who said it would violate the U.S. Constitution’s due process provision, which applies to citizens and non-citizens alike.

While it’s true that some Judges have ruled that illegal immigrants have due process rights, many other legal scholars disagree.
Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza stated during an interview with Fox News that, “Citizenship is a kind of bargain among citizens of a country, and it comes from a social contract with certain rights and responsibilities. The whole idea of letting non-citizens vote and shape the governmental process falls outside the social contract. They need to go through the citizenship process, become citizens, and then they get the protections and benefits of being a citizen.”
Democratic lawmakers understand this, but simply don’t care about illegal immigrants doing the work necessary to become citizens. They don’t care if these individuals obey our laws or understand our Constitution. The Left just want their votes.
Illegal immigrants have taken advantage of our generosity for far too long. When you violate a nation’s laws, regardless of whether you’re a citizen or not, you have clearly forfeited your right to be treated Constitutionally. The President is right in demanding they be sent back.
