In her place, we present a guest columnist outraged at the president&rsquo;s capitulation.<br />\n By Donald J. Trump</p>\n<p> THIS ELECTION ... is our last chance to secure the border, stop illegal immigration and reform our laws to make your life better. &mdash; Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016<br />\n It&rsquo;s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it&rsquo;s coming probably &mdash; probably &mdash; from the Middle East. But we don&rsquo;t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence. ... And it&rsquo;s got to stop, and it&rsquo;s got to stop fast. &mdash; Donald Trump, New York City, June 16, 2015<br />\n We take anybody. Come on in, anybody. Just come on in. Not anymore. ... We need a system that serves our needs, not the needs of others. &mdash; Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016<br />\n The costs for the United States have been extraordinary: U.S. taxpayers have been asked to pick up hundreds of billions in health care costs, housing costs, education costs, welfare costs, etc. &mdash; Donald Trump, Immigration Policy Paper, Aug. 16, 2015<br />\n Whether it&rsquo;s dangerous materials being smuggled across the border, terrorists entering on visas or Americans losing their jobs to foreign workers, these are the problems we must now focus on fixing. &mdash; Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016<br />\n The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else&rsquo;s problems. &mdash; Donald Trump, New York City, June 16, 2015<br />\n Thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country, and thousands more lives will be lost if we don&rsquo;t act right now. &mdash; Donald Trump, Washington, D.C., Jan. 8, 2019<br />\n These are matters of life and death for our country and its people. &mdash; Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016<br />\n The Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)! &mdash; Donald Trump, Twitter, April 24, 2017<br />\n (W)e will reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, the forgotten people. Workers. We&rsquo;re going to take care of our workers. &mdash; Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016<br />\n (P)eople are saying, &ldquo;What&rsquo;s going on? I just want a job. Just get me a job. I don&rsquo;t need the rhetoric. I want a job.&rdquo; &mdash; Donald Trump, New York City, June 16, 2015</p>\n<p> THE TRUTH is our immigration system is worse than anybody ever realized. But the facts aren&rsquo;t known because the media won&rsquo;t report on them. The politicians won&rsquo;t talk about them, and the special interests spend a lot of money trying to cover them up because they are making an absolute fortune. &mdash; Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016<br />\n This barrier is absolutely critical to border security. It&rsquo;s also what our professionals at the border want and need. This is just common sense. &mdash; Donald Trump, Washington, D.C., Jan. 8, 2019<br />\n Just ask Israel about walls. Do walls work? Just ask Israel. They work. &mdash; Donald Trump, Major Cities Chiefs Association Winter Conference, Washington, D.C., Feb. 8, 2017<br />\n The cost of building a permanent border wall pales mightily in comparison to what American taxpayers spend every single year on dealing with the fallout of illegal immigration on their communities, schools and unemployment offices. &mdash; Donald Trump, Immigration Policy Paper, Aug. 16, 2015<br />\n The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that 62 percent of households headed by illegal immigrants use some form of cash or non-cash welfare programs like food stamps or housing assistance. &mdash; Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016<br />\n The border wall would very quickly pay for itself. The cost of illegal drugs exceeds $500 billion a year. Vastly more than the $5.7 billion we have requested from Congress. &mdash; Donald Trump, Washington, D.C., Jan. 8, 2019<br />\n Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do, the United States will, among other things: Impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages. ... We will not be taken advantage of anymore. &mdash; Donald Trump, Immigration Policy Paper, Aug. 16, 2015<br />\n I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I&rsquo;ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words. &mdash; Donald Trump, every speech, every day, everywhere, June 16, 2015 - Nov. 8, 2016<br />\n A lot of people say, &ldquo;Oh, oh, Trump was only kidding with the wall.&rdquo; I wasn&rsquo;t kidding. I don&rsquo;t kid. I don&rsquo;t kid. &mdash; Donald Trump, Major Cities Chiefs Association Winter Conference, Washington, D.C., Feb. 8, 2017</p>\n<p> REMEMBER, under a Trump administration it&rsquo;s called America first. Remember that. &mdash; Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016</p>\n', created = 1575593027, expire = 1575679427, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:d5f291d595c39b734d2dff1cf2dd260d' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
