Many political pundits are claiming to know what got Trump elected. Yes, I think that it had to do with jobs, the economy, and security. But the main reason is this: Americans have been saying for many years that we have had enough of all of the immigrants (legal and illegal) coming into this country and to slow down.
California passed an anti-immigrant law (Prop. 187 in 1994) that we saw overturned by a liberal judge. Same with Arizona (AB 1070). It isn’t enough that our government lets millions of immigrants pour over our border so now we have to import them from the Middle East? Many of those coming in are dangerous criminals. We have sanctuary cities springing up that won’t even cooperate with ICE to help deport illegal individuals who have committed multiple felonies.
Then, after not listening to us, the government then sends us taxpayers the bill. Every level of government from townships, to cities, to counties to states to the feds have now become nothing more than entities trying to fleece their citizens for more and more and more of their hard-earned money.
