President Donald Trump has taken several actions since his inauguration to allow immigration authorities to do their jobs again and arrest and deport criminal illegal aliens from this country.
Now, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents have finally begun to feel confident about what they are doing, The New York Times reported.
“Before, we used to be told, ‘You can’t arrest those people,’ and we’d be disciplined for being insubordinate if we did,” a 10-year veteran of ICE explained, talking about rounding up illegals who might not have committed a violent crime. “Now those people are priorities again. And there are a lot of them here.”

Trump’s executive orders, as well as guidance memos from the Department of Homeland Security, have “taken the shackles” off of ICE agents and allowed them to do their jobs.
The National ICE Council released a joint statement from Border Patrol and ICE explaining how moral was up because of Trump.
“Morale amongst our agents and officers has increased exponentially since the signing of the orders,” read the release. “The men and women of ICE and Border Patrol will work tirelessly to keep criminals, terrorists and public safety threats out of this country, which remains the number one target in the world — and President Trump’s actions now empower us to fulfill this life-saving mission, and it will indeed save thousands of lives and billions of dollars.

There are of course some liberal politicians and police chiefs in America who have objected to ICE agents actually enforcing the law and rounding up illegal immigrants, but for the most part law enforcement officers around the nation appreciate having a president who actually supports them and is allowing them to do their jobs.
It’s a new day in America: Freedom-loving citizens can rejoice, and criminal illegals should start thinking about running for the border before ICE breaks down their door.
