Donald Trump: ‘Fake News Media’ Helping Smugglers and Traffickers

“The fake news media back there doesn’t talk about that. They are fake,” Trump said, pointing at reporters in the room. “They are helping these smugglers and these traffickers like nobody would believe. They know it, they know exactly what they’re doing, and it should be stopped.”

Experts: ‘Reagan Amnesty’ for Illegal Aliens Set The Stage for Immigration Battles

(AP) — “I think there’s a lot of blame to go around and spread around for decades,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director for the conservative Center For Immigration Studies. “There isn’t one person responsible.” Instead, he said, the problem lies in how the Immigration Control and Reform Act of 1986 was implemented. He described the passage of the bill as something of a “con-job” that allowed millions of immigrants in the country illegally to have legal status with a promise of workplace enforcement and other measures to curb future illegal immigration. But that didn’t happen, he said. And there was little incentive to follow through on promises of strict workplace enforcement, he said, once millions of people were legalized.

Report: Food Stamps Program Often Rigged to Benefit Illegal Aliens

In most states, families including illegal aliens can receive more taxpayer-funded benefits, because many states will ignore an ineligible alien’s income when calculating, or prorating, the family’s total income. An illegal alien’s earnings won’t count towards the income cap, allowing “mixed” families to potentially collect more benefits than they would if they were all U.S. citizens.
