Liberals Are About to See What ‘America First’ Looks Like

President Donald Trump appears ready to do what even some of his supporters doubted he’d do: keep his promises on illegal immigration and Muslim “refugee” entry.

The United States may stop immigration altogether if it chooses. And build a wall around the borders. Foreigners don’t have the right to enter or stay in the U.S. Some people have either forgotten this fact or were ignorant of it.

America may seal its borders and keep out foreigners for any reason, including race and religion. The president may raise or lower the number of refugees allowed — not required — to enter the country. It’s called sovereignty.

The leader of America are supposed to put Americans first. President Trump is set to sign executive orders today to do just that. From Reuters:

In the coming days, Trump is expected to limit the number of refugees admitted to the United States to 50,000 a year, down from 100,000, and to impose a temporary ban on most refugees.

Immigration enforcement away from the border is also expected to be strengthened by seeking an end to “sanctuary cities” where local law enforcement officials refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Trump will call for an end to this practice and may instruct the federal government to stop providing certain funds to cities that refuse to comply.

Such actions shouldn’t be controversial, and they indicate how far off the path previous leaders have led us.
