The appointees Trump fired had refused to arrest a large number of illegal migrants to deter further illegal immigration: 1,2,3 --1990'sguy (talk) 21:22, 13 May 2019 (EDT)

Interesting article about Bill Barr -- it shows he's (so far) been supportive of Trump's immigration agenda, but it mainly focuses on Russiagate, aligns with the MSM false narrative that he's only some puppet of Trump or something like that, and I couldn't find a good place in the article for the reference, so I'm adding it here as a "parking spot": [160] --1990'sguy (talk) 15:39, 18 May 2019 (EDT)

Trump will reportedly appoint Ken Cuccinelli to a DHS position related to immigration and border security: [161] Doesn't seem to be a bad choice, but Cuccinelli doesn't seem to have much experience in this area. --1990'sguy (talk) 01:55, 22 May 2019 (EDT)

Wall-for-DACA deal

Trump proposed an immigration deal that would trade a three-year extension of DACA and TPS for $5.7 billion for the wall plus some other border security measures (more agents, judges, etc.): 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16 While other conservatives are unhappy at the DACA and TPS provisions (and I especially oppose TPS's existence), I'm inclined to agree with Mark Krikorian's interpretation, that the overall deal (unless the actual bill wording changes it) isn't that bad. Of course, Democrats will vote against it no matter what. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:47, 19 January 2019 (EST)

Trump announced he would re-open the government for three weeks as the GOP and Dems negotiate a border bill, appearing to cave to Pelsoi's initial demand to re-open the government first, then "negotiate" (though it's also true that it's the final product that matters): 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 Trump stated that if Democrats do not give him wall money, he will declare a national emergency, and hopefully, he will deliver: 1,2,3,4 --1990'sguy (talk) 16:59, 25 January 2019 (EST)
More statements by Trump on this: 1,2,3 --1990'sguy (talk) 23:39, 25 January 2019 (EST)

Trump believes the chance of a border security deal is under 50%: [164] --1990'sguy (talk) 08:57, 28 January 2019 (EST)

Unfortunately, because of the shutdown, the State Department had to cancel a border security conference: [165] --1990'sguy (talk) 22:20, 25 January 2019 (EST)

The White House told Breitbart that it is not considering TPS for Venezuelans anymore,[172] though it's probably too soon to add this to the article, since the AP article I just added implied there's still consideration. --1990'sguy (talk) 19:07, 14 March 2019 (EDT)
More on this -- the White House debate is apparently not over: 1,2 --1990'sguy (talk) 18:55, 18 March 2019 (EDT)

I may not have noticed this when it happened, but in December 2018, a federal judge ruled against some rule changes Sessions made to the immigration courts, similar changes to what Barr made just a few days ago: 1,2 --1990'sguy (talk) 10:18, 19 April 2019 (EDT)

A rare good immigration ruling by a judge, though (as far as I can see) the policy he ruled on didn't come inter force under Trump: [177] --1990'sguy (talk) 11:53, 27 March 2019 (EDT)

Wow -- the 9th Circuit actually allowed the Trump Administration to (temporarily) enforce its "return to Mexico" policy: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 --1990'sguy (talk) 22:07, 12 April 2019 (EDT)
