Trump wants to legalize 'Dreamers,' admit huge number of new immigrants

Donald Trump says he wants more legal immigration – a lot of it.

President-elect Donald Trump veered off his anti-immigration message Tuesday night and told a crowd in North Carolina that hundreds of thousands of immigrants will come in during his administration.

"We are going to stop people coming into this country illegally but we are going to be having people come into our country – and they are going to come in by the thousands and the hundreds of thousands – but they are going to come in, they are going to come in, legally," Trump said. "But by the hundreds of thousands. We want people to come in but they have to come in legally."

Why?  We have enormous unassimilated pockets of America where nary a word of English is heard.  Shouldn't our first priority be to assimilate the immigrants we have before we admit even more?  Trump's comments are disappointing.

Trump also said children of illegal aliens, so-called "Dreamers," will be happy with what he has planned for them.

President-elect Donald J. Trump on Wednesday appeared to soften his stance on whether to deport the more than 700,000 young people who entered the country illegally as children and were permitted to stay by President Obama.

"We're going to work something out that's going to make people happy and proud," Mr. Trump told Time magazine. "They got brought here at a very young age, they've worked here, they've gone to school here. Some were good students. Some have wonderful jobs. And they're in never-never land because they don't know what's going to happen."

Trump talks like a liberal.  I feel as though I'm reading a transcript from an NPR show.  He's showing more empathy for illegal aliens than he is for American citizens.  Shouldn't it be the concerns of Americans he should be considering first, before the feelings of illegals?  These people are taking taxpayer money and American jobs, some committing crimes, and many are not assimilating and speaking English, and Trump wants them to stay?

Ever since Trump posed for a photo with illegal aliens, it's been obvious where his true sympathies lie.  While I believe he may do many good things as president, such as build a border wall (now reduced to a fence), possibly appoint good judges, and reduce regulations, I think, based on Trump's own words, that most of our illegal aliens are here to stay.  Because if the kids are being allowed to stay, surely their parents will be as well.
