Do you realize that Islamic terrorism has largely been absent from our news in recent years. It is down here since Trump took office and if Harris/Biden win the White House I truly believe we will see bold moves by the Islamist fanatics.
Now jumping to the New York Times and a detailed opinion piece by its editorial board that tells us that the Trump Administration has successfully turned off the immigration spigot (at least reduced the flow!) into American towns and cities.
Trump’s Overhaul of Immigration Is Worse Than You Think
This administration has attacked every aspect of the immigration system — and it won’t be easy to undo.
After the obligatory lead-in sob story…
….is a measure of how meticulously the Trump administration has pursued the destruction of immigration in America. Through administrative orders, strict enforcement and mere threat, the White House has attacked virtually every aspect of immigration, legal and illegal.
This transformation of the American immigration system has been perhaps the administration’s boldest accomplishment, overseen with single-minded focus by Stephen Miller, a top adviser to President Trump with an affinity for white nationalism.

A report this summer from the Migration Policy Institute outlined over 400 actions on immigration that had been enacted by a sprawling array of federal departments in the Trump era.
The effects are clear. Between 2016 and 2019, annual net immigration into the United States fell by almost half, to about 600,000 people per year — a level not seen since the 1980s — according to an analysis by William H. Frey of the Brookings Institution. (Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, that number has certainly decreased even more.)
The 2016-19 drop “is clearly a result of Trump’s restrictive immigration measures,” Mr. Frey told the editorial board, “including immigrant bans from selected countries, greater limits on refugees, and generating fear among other potential immigrant groups over this administration’s unwelcoming policies.”
Continue reading as the writers make it clear that some of what the Trump Administration has done to slow immigration can be quickly undone—like Biden’s promise to admit 125,000 refugees in his first year in office should he win.
But, other changes, some predict, will take years to undo.
Four more years of keeping terrorism out of America, and four more years to make it clear to the globalists that they will need to hire Americans at decent wages, and four more years to remake the Republican party should set us on course for another century of American greatness.
