    Donald Trump Admits He Doesn’t Really Want to Stop Illegal Immigration

    Donald Trump Admits He Doesn’t Really Want to Stop Illegal Immigration



    John Westberg/Modesto Bee via ZUMA

    E-Verify is a system that employers can use to make sure they hire only people who are legally allowed to work in the United States. It’s pretty easy to use and pretty accurate—though it could still stand to be improved on that score. So should it be made mandatory for all employers? President Trump isn’t sure:

    In an interview with Fox News Channel conducted last week, Trump said a new White House plan to overhaul portions of the legal immigration system could “possibly” include the use of E-Verify. But he also said that the verification system could be overly onerous on certain employers, such as farmers, who Trump said were “not equipped” to use it.


    “I used it when I built the hotel down the road on Pennsylvania Avenue,” he said, referring to the Trump International Hotel in Washington. “I use a very strong E-Verify system. And we would go through 28 people — 29, 30 people — before we found one that qualified.”


    He continued: “So it’s a very tough thing to ask a farmer to go through that. So in a certain way, I speak against myself, but you also have to have a world of some practicality.”

    As usual, it’s not clear what Trump is talking about here. Is he seriously suggesting that when they hired workers for his DC hotel, 29 out of 30 applicants were undocumented? That’s ridiculous.

    Nor does it make any sense to say that farmers are “not equipped” to use E-Verify. All you need is a smartphone or a computer with an internet connection. It’s insulting to suggest that farmers aren’t up to this.

    Needless to say, what Trump really means is that farmers would be seriously pissed off if he tried to make them hire only legal workers. E-Verify would do that. Unspoken—but obvious—is the corollary to this: Trump’s wall doesn’t piss off farmers because they know it won’t accomplish anything. It’s just something that sounds good to his base.


    Trump’s tariffs have already hurt farmers, and the last thing he wants to do is lose their votes for good by making it hard to hire undocumented workers. That’s why he’s for a wall but against mandatory E-Verify. It’s all about practicality.

    Trump is such a manipulative liar.

    JohnDoe2, is there anyway you could use at least the size 3 on your stories? I'm probably not the only one that has to constantly go through the hassle of enlarging your stories in order to read them more easily. Just asking ...

    Your stories are mostly the only ones that are causing me eyestrain. Unfortunately, I catch myself passing up many of them because of the difficulty I have reading them. If I'm the only one experiencing the problem, fine. I was just asking if you could make them a size 3. If that's a problem with you, okay, I understand.

    My response is size 3. Does it appear large on your computer?

    Oh, and your story is smaller than your response. The header is in large print, just not the story. Just saying ....

    a comment from NumbersUSA today

    "...it [doesn't] make any sense to say that farmers are 'not equipped' to use E-Verify. All you need is a smartphone or a computer with an internet connection. It's insulting to suggest that farmers aren't up to this.

    "Needless to say, what Trump really means is that farmers would be seriously pissed off if he tried to make them hire only legal workers."

    That's funny that NumbersUSA would think he meant they didn't have the "equipment" to participate in E-Verify. Oh my god. What else has NumbersUSA gotten so wrong all these years? Over 20 years, over 2 million strong, and they haven't passed one bill to reduce legal immigration or stop illegal immigration.

    The organizations working on this may need a new strategy or different tactics. Just a thought.

    Judy doing the twist again.....

    Ir wasn't NumbersUSA that said that---it was your buddy Donal J Trump

    In an interview with Fox News Channel conducted last week, Trump said a new White House plan to overhaul portions of the legal immigration system could “possibly” include the use of E-Verify. But he also said that the verification system could be overly onerous on certain employers, such as farmers, who Trump said were “not equipped” to use it.

    ------------------------

    The comment from NumbersUSA was making fun of Donald J Trump for saying were “not equipped” to use it.

    LOL!! That's what so funny, NumbersUSA thinking he meant "equipment". They aren't "equipped" to FARM without their illegal labor, that is their position, whether right or wrong, that is where farmers are and have been for decades and why they oppose a lot of otherwise good legislation that would stop other types of illegal immigration. For NumbersUSA not to know that, is really just shockingly funny.

    Gee, I guess you didn't know that either.
