BACK IN THE NEWS
I recently said I thought immigration issues would probably not be in public eye until the midterm elections (this fall). I was wrong. I failed to take into account that Trump is a man on a mission and he can make news any time he wants.
Yesterday the President ordered the Pentagon to use National Guard troops to deter illegal crossings and drug trafficking along the southern border. This puts the immigration issue right back in the spotlight.
While no specifics were provided, critics accused the President of playing politics. Of course it is politics…that's what the immigration issue is all about.
I continue to maintain that Trump's actions are good for those wanting reform because it is only political pressure that will ultimately bring actual reform. Without a focus on the problem, nothing will change.
