Trump stated that he would try to fnd a path to citizenship for people with H-1B visas -- a worrysome sign, depending on the specifics of such a provision: 1,2,3,4,5,6 --1990'sguy (talk) 16:33, 11 January 2019 (EST)

Immigration enforcement actions

This op-ed article briefly discusses some actions (before this year) to combat illegal migrants in the country's interior: [21] I either added some of these things, or they don't seem significant enough to add, but this op-ed is still helpful. --1990'sguy (talk) 23:23, 12 January 2019 (EST)

This article's wording is biased against the Trump Administration and private prisons, but private prisons are helping the Trump Administration detain illegals: [22] --1990'sguy (talk) 09:32, 18 January 2019 (EST)

Stupid laws

Apparently, there's a legal loophole that allows illegal migrant MS-13 gang members to go free -- if they arrived as unaccompanied minors: [23] --1990'sguy (talk) 22:35, 13 January 2019 (EST)

Appointments

Trump is taking a long time to resubmit his nominees for administration positions, and conservatives fear that good nominees such as Ronald W. Mortensen (State Dept.) and Ronald Vitiello (ICE), Brian Bulatao (State), and Thelma Drake (FTA): [24] Hopefully, these people will be renominated and eventually confirmed. --1990'sguy (talk) 14:33, 16 January 2019 (EST)

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)

Unfortunately, E-Verify has been missing from these discussions: [25] --1990'sguy (talk) 00:03, 20 January 2019 (EST)
