There isn’t much conservative author Michelle Malkin likes about Donald Trump, but she loves his plan to crack down on illegal immigration.

Malkin Beck Trump“I’m endorsing his immigration platform, which is airtight, which agrees with so many of the fundamental principles we talk about in our book,” Malkin said during an appearance on the Glenn Beck Program last night.

Malkin believes Trump is “listening to the right people.”

“What I think most people are hungering for now is somebody they can trust, even if they disagree with him,” Malkin said. “And one of the things I do point out because I can set aside whatever personal issues I have — or that he has with me — with Donald Trump is that he actually is listening to the right people on [the issue].”

According to the candidate’s website, he has three “core principles” on immigration reform:

1. A nation without borders is not a nation. There must be a wall across the southern border.

2. A nation without laws is not a nation. Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.

3. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation. Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans.

Trump believes “U.S. taxpayers have been asked to pick up hundreds of billions in healthcare costs, housing costs, education costs, welfare costs, etc.”

To that end, he’s going to force Mexico to pay for the wall along the southern border. Until they do, A President Trump would:

  • impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages;
  • increase fees on all temporary visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats (and if necessary cancel them);
  • increase fees on all border crossing cards – of which we issue about 1 million to Mexican nationals each year (a major source of visa overstays);
  • increase fees on all NAFTA worker visas from Mexico (another major source of overstays); and
  • increase fees at ports of entry to the United States from Mexico [Tariffs and foreign aid cuts are also options].

“We will not be taken advantage of anymore,” according to his platform.

    It’s a rare moment to hear Malkin or any pundit saying something positive about Trump.

    All candidates should address these three issues:
    1. How to stop people from entering illegally — secure the border.
    2. How to fix what’s wrong:
    * end anchor babies, OTMs, Cuban refugees, over-stayed visas, dreamers
    * fine or imprison employers of illegals
    * overturn Obama’s executive orders
    * allow for managed farm guest worker program
    * reduce and limit legal immigration to only the best, protect workers
    3. How to remove the millions of illegals in our country?

      The Sovereign Nation of Mexico is one of the hardest places on earth to acquire citizenship (Trump’s words). How does the Mexican Govt. know a returning ILLegal is one of their citizens? —especially when most of them don’t have IDs’, can’t read or write their own name, and the Mexican Govt. fails to maintain an information system of their births?!?

        They get sent back to where they arrived from, regardless of their home country. If they arrived thru the Mexican border, but are Honduran, it’s Mexico’s problem.

        Imagine if millions of criminals were entering Canada thru the U.S. border. It’s not up to Canada to figure out if they’re Syrian, Iranian, Mexican, El Salvadorian, etc. Canada would have every right to send them back to the U.S.

        But you bring up a good point, that deportation must be organized and systematic. We need to end all welfare, education, medical care, employment, and provide incentives to get them to leave.

        If they leave voluntarily by a deadline, they can keep their money and leave open the possibility of future U.S. citizenship after proper approval. If the don’t leave, we confiscate their money and they forfeit future citizenship.

          So you have an ILLegal Criminal spican who lives in the northwest, and says he entered through Canada… they’re very dishonest.!.!

          • Poseidon

            Then send them all to California!

    Love Michelle Malkin! Where do you find a smart conservative lady like that…..(there seem to be so few).

  • It’s unfortunate that Malkin–who I admire and respect as one of the toughest anti-Invasion fighters in the U.S.–hadn’t noticed by the date of this report that Trump had been pushing for and continues pushing for a version of the “touchback” Amnesty which he or Sen. Sessions conveniently left out of his website’s Immigration Plan page. Malkin also made this comment before Trump’s now-infamous-but-still-secret meeting with The NY Times Editorial Board wherein it was leaked that he backtracked on “the Wall” and on “deporting all illegals”.
