The Government Shutdown and Immigration Policy With the government shutdown, immigration policy is driving a wedge in our political system.
First, please give a brief overview of the current American immigration policy. Would the construction of a wall along our southern border help stem the tide of illegal immigration or are there other ports of entry into the country where illegal immigration is more prevalent? Finally, do you think that President Trump has genuine concerns about illegal immigration or is it is a ploy to alleviate the concerns of his political base? With the shutdown is on its 14th day, with no resolution in sight, almost all of the immigration court hearings that were scheduled for the past two weeks will need to be rescheduled for a later date.
