    TRAVEL AND TOURISM: I have a heart; I always have, but immigration must be done legally! The hotel business is going to be hit terribly hard. Revenue will fall as the streets become packed with homeless people; it is unavoidable. If something is not done about this crisis, America will not come back again. There are always logical answers to things. I do not understand why able-bodied men who can travel long distances; who are obviously well-built physically, cannot fight for their own country. A lot of women are single here and it hurts all of us raising children. This is NOT the answer to neglect logic. I pray for humanity to realize that these are people, not pawns in an illogical game of politics. Lets get a heart and expect people to be mature and respect each other by doing things right. Everyone will benefit that way.

    This POTUS news conference is NOT about Whatever: it is about advertising Trump's mouth hole for blow jobs. Trump gives presidential blow jobs to high rollers for an astounding amount of money & he wants the customer to know what kind of lip work they are getting.

    Can I ask what he's going to do about the transfer of professional licenses? There are attorneys and doctors that come here and aren't able to offer their professional services because there is no set standard for transferring the licenses. They end up as maintenance workers or laborers. How is that fair?

      If you are a Physician you will need to pass the Physician licensing examination. Even American medical graduates are required to do so and took the same exam on three parts and can do it on separate occasions. If you were like me a foreigner, you have to take them in 3 consecutive days. I was lucky to have no problem of passing the examination. Lucky also to passed 2 specialties board. USA has equal opportunity policy regardless of your nationality. My medical license in Philippines was rendered null and void since Philippines passed a law requiring Filipino citizenship to practice medicine there. and being a foreigner I can not practice medicine there despite having Philippines medical license and practice there for 2 years before coming to USA for advanced training. I apprecitae the generosity of USA and lucky to practice medicine here till I retired. You will have a hard time to get that kind of opportunity in other countries. My Philippines experiencer attest to it.

    Mr. President we obviously know that you are a businessman president with a staggering 11 Million undocumented immigrants --- why not grant amnesty citizenshp for a fee like 400/PERSON × 11M = 40 billion and higher guaranteed US PROFIT Mr. President this would be the easiest solution to the problem

      Just few words... WHAT IF the parents brought kids here when they were young. The parents broke the law technically not the kids right? (i mean.. they didn’t even know or have a choice).
      Considering this, were kids suppose to understand that their parents broke the law and try to return to their country? Leaving home, family, friends, & etc behind?
      Speaking of jobs, I would hire people based on skills, talents, and work ethics NOT based on immigration status (as long as they are working legally & paying taxes which DACA people are). So people need to stop complaining how they are jobless. It’s not their fault. Maybe Americans should study harder (not trying to be stereotypical but logically speaking..)? It’s a competitive world :)
      I totally agreeing with the STOPPING of “illegal” immigration thing. However, one thing that comes into my mind is the fact that DACA is slightly different.
      Building walls = okay. Keeping future illegal immigrants out is fine too. But what about the people who were here years ago?? Hmmm...
      President Trump needs a better solution than just dropping DACA. I hope I didn’t make anyone upset. Just my thoughts on it. ;)

      Speak for your self! Why are you a illegal immigrant? You should be Greatful too live in the Greatest Country in the World. If migrants are going to break the laws to get here then what makes you think migrants are going to follow or respect any other laws? there has to be some type of guidlines to follow .

    Every President has some grand plan to fix everything. Ever stop and consider that may be the reason immigration is so inefficient?

    • Soturian

      @Rikesh Patel not every. And take it from some who got chaptered from the army and is now getting into the border patrol; It's at every level, no one person or group is less guilty than any other

    • Rikesh Patel
      Rikesh Patel 6 months ago

      Soturian not just immigration. Every government program is inefficient because presidents only care about the next 4-8 years. They aren’t interesting in the long term, just want to make sweeping changes in the short term so they can solidify their legacy.

      @Soturian Many times it does, so it's not a "burden" for the developed countries.
      Instead, in almost every negotiation the weakest part is the one that gets the "less great" deal.

      @Soturian xD ... You know that most of them just collect goods and wealth for the developed countries right?
      And volunteer doctors (which I am now one in the US doing research) don't do it for life.

      @taz24787 engineers that work oil rigs or big construction projects, volunteer doctors (the US is the most charitable nation), investors and businessmen, sailors/pilots and the groundcrew/port management that goes with them, and even archeologists.

    Why English though? It's not even America's preferred language. I really don't see why the Legal Immigration System needs to be even changed. This "plan" just seems unfair to the lesser skilled immigrants wanting to legally move into the US.

      @Vicki McGinnis America doesn't actually have one. The reason English is mostly used is because everyone can speak it. There was no ACTUAL preferred language. Also, English is NOT the official Language of the US, nor are any of the other languages.

I can't get a Damn cleaning contract because of immigrants who dont speak English but are able to get contracts with Fortune 500 companies..Keep it up. My wife had had so many jobs calling her now. She is in Accounting. Its refreshing. She can turn down jobs now. Total '180 from 3 or 4 yrs ago. Straight Up!!!
