Among other things, President Donald Trump was elected because of his promise to secure America's borders and reform immigration. Voters resonated with this "America first" commitment, and today, little has changed.
In fact, with violent throngs of those intent on storming U.S. borders—and hurling rocks at border patrol agents in the process over the Thanksgiving weekend—many Americans still want safe borders, despite what mainstream media reports or what celebrities post on social media.
Stephen E. Strang, a best-selling author who released his newest book, Trump Aftershock, on Election Day, details the president's many accomplishments in a section of the book called "500 Days of American Greatness." Included is the fact that America's communities are safe and more secure.
"President Trump has worked to secure our borders, enforce our immigration laws, and protect the safety and security of American communities," Strang says. "Despite a vocal contingent posting sentiments about separated families and women and children, the majority of Americans want to keep our country safe—and keep our families protected and unharmed. Legal immigration is an American ideal—nearly all of us can trace our roots to another ethnicity—but this is one of the major reasons why evangelicals voted for President Trump. It is common sense to protect our borders the same way we protect our homes and churches. Anything less is inviting trouble into the nation."
The special section on Trump's accomplishments highlights these immigration facts:
- Despite limited resources and obstruction from Congress, President Trump has worked to take control of our border and enforce our immigration laws.
- President Trump has called on Congress to provide the resources needed to secure our borders and close loopholes that prevent immigration laws from being fully enforced.
- President Trump authorized the deployment of the National Guard to help secure our borders.
- President Trump's administration has carried out immigration enforcement efforts based on the rule of law. For example, from the start of President Trump's administration to the end of FY 2017, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) made 110,568 arrests of illegal aliens. Arrests made in this time frame represented a 42 percent increase from the same time frame in FY 2016. Of the 110,568 arrests made, 92 percent had a criminal conviction, pending criminal charge, were an ICE fugitive or had a reinstated final order of removal.
Released on Election Day, Trump Aftershock explores the "president's seismic impact on culture and faith in America" and uncovers unreported facts while objectively helping readers understand what the nation's most unlikely and unconventional president has accomplished.
