Immigration group pulls its endorsement of Donald Trump after ‘betrayal’ of promises

May 2, 2017

  We are beginning to see some fallout from the Republicans’ capitulation to the Democrats on the budget continuing resolution. This continuing resolution includes funding for Planned Parenthood, Sanctuary Cities, and the EPA despite Donald Trump’s campaign promises and it also fails to make good on his promise to build a border wall.

  As a result of this “betrayal” Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is pulling its endorsement of Donald Trump. Here is more:

After months of activism efforts to encourage President Trump to honor his campaign promises, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is regretfully announcing the revocation of the organization’s endorsement of Donald Trump originally issued February 29, 2016.

ALIPAC’s supporters have endorsed, contributed to, volunteered for, and attended events and rallies to help Trump in response to his promises to enforce all existing immigration and border laws while ending Obama’s DACA Amnesty and building a wall on our southern border.

While Trump promised these things, he quickly caved and retreated on budget negotiations with Congress on funding for the wall this week, while continuing Obama’s overtly unconstitutional DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Amnesty for illegal immigrants! Trump is sending a message that most illegal aliens have nothing to fear from federal law enforcement and that implementation of US law will be based on his personal feelings instead of the Rule of Law. Trump has also issued an executive order setting dangerous refugee resettlement programs he promised to end at 62,000 imported per year, which is the same average Obama brought in during his terms. ALIPAC has also recently discovered Trump administration spokeswoman and Bush family ally Helen Aguirre Ferre promising future amnesty to illegal aliens on KJZZ radio!

“We were so hopeful that Donald Trump would be a man of his word because the campaign promises he made to Americans were the things America needs to do to survive and thrive, but unfortunately, Trump has made it clear he cannot be trusted on his most powerful campaign issue of stopping illegal immigration and amnesty,” declared William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Our organization’s supporters have been fighting against illegal immigration and Amnesty for many years, and they say it is time for us to end our endorsement of Trump because close inspection of his actual immigration policies show he is similar to Bush and Obama on Amnesty for illegal immigrants.”

    To be fair the blame cannot fall solely on Donald Trump, in fact  most of the blame falls on the establishment Republicans because in the end they do not have the stones to fight against the Democrats and the mainstream media because they are too concerned about how they would be portrayed in the media. There is also the reality that in the end the establishment Republicans, when push comes to shove, will always side with the establishment (including the Democrats) over an outsider they feel in encroaching on their power.

  But Donald Trump does deserve some blame for this as well, if he wanted to fight he could veto the budget resolution but all indications point to his approval. It is true he is promising to fight again in September when the budget battle resumes but we have heard this type of rhetoric time and time again and in the end we are always left disappointed. Why should we believe it will be different the next time, especially when it is closer  to the next election cycle? The Republicans control the White House and both Houses of the Congress and they still cannot pass their agenda, or at least their stated agenda…

  I would say this is disappointing but I did not trust Donald Trump from the beginning and I think we might be seeing his true colors beginning to emerge.

    What looks like back tracking on promises is simply a product of negotiations. This happens with every single president, since Washington. You can’t “Have it all”. You have to make some concessions. It’s all in the name of POLITICS.

        That is not true. Watch Mulvaney’s speech from yesterday’s daily White House briefing.

    Maybe he’s preoccupied with helping his new buddy Kim Jung Un getting the lights turned on north o the 38th parallel. Surely that will happen before we get our wall built.

      Sadly, you are probably right. I don’t think the wall is ever going to be built, nobody in the establishment wants it.
