President Trump is ordering the federal government to step up enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws, to the delight of enforcement-first immigration hawks who have been on the outside looking in during the last two administrations.
“For me, every day since the election has been like Christmas,” said former Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., who was for a decade the leading immigration restrictionist in Congress. “Santa Trump gives me a present every day and this was today’s.”
The gift Tancredo is referring to came in the form of Department of Homeland Security documents made public Tuesday detailing the Trump administration’s plans to increase immigration enforcement both at the border and within the interior of the country.
