Immigration

Donald Trump is not a professional politician.  He is a businessman.  As such he is used to speaking his mind without first running his opinions and turn of phrase past a focus group and a polling company.  He just tells what's on his mind.

As such, he will say many things that professional politicians will never say.  His recent speech on immigration was a excellent example.  He spoke in generalities and spoke about the crimes that illegal aliens commit.  Those who don't like him will jump on his every perceived error and call for him to drop out of the race.  Instead, they should continue to convince us that his stated policies are wrong, rather than try to shame him into quitting.

Certainly most illegal aliens come here for a better life, but there is a process.  Part of the process is to weed out those who don't belong here, and especially those who have made crime a career.  We need to take better control of our border.  We need to protect the jobs of Americans, and we need to protect Americans from crime and terrorism; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
