With every shift in leadership, you can expect repercussions throughout our society. With something as massive as the election of a new president, the changes to our economy, culture and military will be huge!
The media predicted disaster. As it turns out, things are only getting better. The DOW Jones is enjoying historic highs. Leaders from all over the world have expressed a renewed dedication for peace between the nations. Even Canada and Mexico are talking about revoking NAFTA.
But speculation abounds over what might become of the Mexican-American border. Donald Trump continues to promise stronger border and immigration protection, including the construction of a wall. All signs point to this being one of his major goals in his first year as president.
So the natural question remains, how are illegals going to react to this new age?
With Donald Trump’s presidency now only a matter of time instead of a hypothetical, border agents are bracing for a surge in illegal immigration at the southwest border as people race to get into the United States before the door shuts…
Immigration experts said it is hard to predict how would-be illegal immigrants in Mexico and Central America will respond to Trump’s election. Chris Chmielenski, director of content and activism at NumbersUSA, said many who were considering coming to the United States might to decide it is better to take their shot in the waning days of the Obama administration.
People desperate to get into the United States might try to get in now, under Obama’s very weak immigration policies. This could lead to a surge in attempts to cross the border. You can imagine how drug cartels and criminals feel about losing this pipeline into America; they will push to get as many agents into the U.S. now while they can.
But it’s not all bad news. Sources are saying that border police will work overtime to prevent this sort of thing from happening, even if it means defying the outgoing president.
At the same time, according to the head of the union representing 16,5000 U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, career-level managers of the agency are likely to push back against the directives of outgoing political appointees of President Obama…
“They have a new boss,” he said. “They know it. They need to endear themselves to him.”
Knowing that soon Trump will helm the country, border police will most likely ignore Obama’s directives to look the other way when they catch illegals. The border patrol, which endorsed Trump’s campaign, will most certainly begin to crack down on the tide of illegals into our country now, before the wall is up.
