    Anti-Immigration Hawks Say Trump Has Betrayed America

    Anti-Immigration Hawks Say Trump Has Betrayed America

    By John Friend
    American Free Press

    Some of President Donald Trump’s leading supporters are now openly criticizing him and his administration for signing a recent congressional budget bill that funds the government, thus preventing yet another government shutdown.

    Trump signed the bill on Feb. 15 and immediately declared a national emergency because the bill did not contain enough funding for border security and a border wall, sparking outcry and outrage from leading Democrats and other leftist activist organizations, including the ACLU, which vowed to challenge the president in court.

    Meanwhile, the crisis along the southern border between the United States and Mexico continues unabated.

    A number of immigration hawks, including many who were once Trump’s leading supporters and cheerleaders, are outraged at the bill, with William Gheen, the president and spokesman of ALIPAC, a leading lobbying group opposed to illegal immigration and amnesty, calling the recently passed bill a “dastardly and secretive budget bill which incentivizes illegal immigration and child trafficking.”

    ALIPAC had been an ardent supporter of Trump during the 2016 election season. Due to the president’s lack of ability to build a wall along the southern border, a signature campaign promise, and his increasing willingness to compromise with Democrats, ALIPAC has joined a growing chorus of former Trump supporters that has come out to criticize the president and his handling of the immigration crisis plaguing the nation.

    “Trump just signed into law a bill that 99% of Americans know nothing about, which contains amnesty for millions of illegals, incentives for child trafficking, an expansion of Trump’s deadly catch-and-release policies, less detention space for illegals, reductions of interior immigration law enforcement, new buildings and buses to bring more illegals into the U.S., raising of legal immigration levels, a measly $1.3 billion for border fences, and severe restrictions on where border barriers can be built,” ALIPAC declared in a recent press release.

    Gheen’s criticism of Trump did not stop there.

    “Trump is a Judas Goat,” Gheen boldly stated following the president’s decision to sign the budget bill. “It is clear to me that Trump is not the man he campaigns to be, and he is complicit in passing a major policy bill in a disgusting way that prevented 99% of Americans from learning what is in the bill until after he made it a law, just like Obamacare. In truth, Trump shares Obama’s tactics and immigration positions. The American patriots who see through Trump’s lies and those who are upset by his signature on the amnesty budget bill today are the Americans we want to represent and give voice to at ALIPAC.”

    Columnist Ann Coulter, another former strong supporter of Trump who has been increasingly critical of the president in recent months, voiced her outrage at the spending bill and subsequent declaration of a national emergency. Coulter warned that “it’s over” now that the president signed the spending bill, which essentially amounted to Trump surrendering and selling out his base on the main issues he campaigned on: ending illegal immigration, deporting illegal aliens already living here, and building a border wall to protect the sovereignty of America.

    Coulter was equally critical of Trump’s declaration of a national emergency, which she largely views as a ruse to placate his supporters. “The goal of a national emergency is for Trump to scam the stupidest people in his base for two more years,” Coulter recently tweeted. She also went on to warn her followers—and the president— that once Trump signs the bill, there are no emergency powers to build a wall.

    Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, a hawkish immigration think tank, published a critique of the spending bill which pointed out that the bill essentially grants local governments along the southern border a veto over the construction of a border barrier in their jurisdiction, tying the hands of the federal government even further. Krikorian also noted that language in the bill prevents U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and other federal immigration enforcement authorities from detaining or removing illegals who have any relationship with an “unaccompanied” minor.

    Brandon Darby, a leading reporter for Breitbart News who has been covering border issues for the conservative outlet, said that it is “almost going to be impossible to deport” illegal aliens crossing the border “if they have a minor with them” now that the bill is signed.

    Nick Fuentes, a leading young conservative pundit, described the bill as “the worst immigration deal in history.”

    Suffice it to say, some of the country’s leading immigration hawks—once the president’s strongest supporters—are none too happy with the recent spending bill and subsequent declaration of a national emergency by the president.

    An ardent supporter? Maybe I'm wrong but IMO that's a bit of an exaggeration. I voted for Trump, however, while I can't speak for anyone else, I was never that enthusiastic because Trump was very inconsistent and squishy on amnesty. With that said, he was the only game left in town after the primaries. I think a lot of folks voted for Trump because he was viewed as our only choice.

    Personally, I was a Cruz supporter. It was my understanding that ALIPAC only endorsed Trump during the primaries to stop the infighting between Cruz and Trump supporters. Was that correct?

    Yes, we endorsed Trump to help end the fighting between Trump and Cruz that was putting the election at risk to Hillary. And we did arendtly support Trump... many ALIPAC volunteers donated to and worked for the Trump campaign.

    We are forced to vote for the "lesser" of two evils and that was Trump.

    Hillary would have been a massive disaster and 500,000 illegals would have been pouring over the border every day! Along with lost jobs, war and higher taxes. Rampant lawlessness, violence and poverty. EVERYTHING would have escalated.

    He should have run a Trump/Cruz ticket and wiped up the floor. They both should have agreed on that ticket.
