The last eight years have proved tiresome for so many American’s. When the voices of concern for our country were not being listened to by the elected officials that “We the people” placed there, we took it to the ballot box; therefore electing Donald J. Trump in a particularly dirty election.
Whether you love him or hate him, Donald Trump is a force to be reckoned with. He is doing exactly what he said he would do while he was on the campaign trail. He has nominated a fantastic Supreme Court nominee, has continued plans to build his wall, will restart work on the pipeline, and he has conducted his first successful immigration raid since signing the order January 25, to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.

From Washington Post:
Trump has pledged to deport as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records.
Immigration officials confirmed that agents this week raided homes and workplaces in Atlanta, Chicago, New York, the Los Angeles area, North Carolina and South Carolina, netting hundreds of people. But Gillian Christensen, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), said they were part of “routine” immigration enforcement actions. ICE dislikes the term “raids,” and prefers to say authorities are conducting “targeted enforcement actions,” she said.
Officials said the raids targeted known criminals, but they also netted some immigrants without criminal records, an apparent departure from similar enforcement waves during the Obama administration. Last month, Trump substantially broadened the scope of who the Department of Homeland Security can target to include those with minor offenses or no convictions at all.
The mainstream media is portraying Trump as a racist, and a bigot. What they fail to believe is that he is actually upholding the law of our land. Imagine that? A President that has the best interest of our country at heart.
These leftists will continue to demonize Trump and smear him and his family, but it is up to those that believe in this country to continue to spread the good, and the truth.
