The Trump White House is planning a big immigration push that could start a war over immigration in the United States.
There are few topics that have fueled the anti-Trump protestors than immigration, and Trump’s new “big immigration launch” is going to infuriate them.
The White House is working with the Department of Homeland Security on a proposal that will dramatically add and empower thousands of new officers.
According to a senior administration official, Fox News is reporting that the proposal will hire new officers to fast-track deportations.
The new secretary of the DHS, John Kelly, is asking for 10,000 new ICE officers in the proposal as well as 5,000 additional U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers.
Kelly blames the rise in immigration as the need for the new recruits.
“The surge of immigration at the southern border has overwhelmed federal agencies and resources and has created a significant national security vulnerability to the United States.”
Although this proposal doesn’t focus on the border wall, the new DHS head thinks that is “necessary” to build the wall.
Trump isn’t looking to change any laws to get his way on immigration; he is looking just to enforce the laws that are currently in place.
The push for more immigration agents is another campaign promise that Trump has now kept.

Trump’s actions are solidifying him as the leader that many supporters hoped for, but to millions on the left, they see his actions as more evidence that Trump needs to be stopped.
Contact your governors, attorney generals, and mayors to express your concern for Trump's expansion of DHS activity, and demand they subvert

There is no doubt the left is going to try and stop Trump regardless of what he does, but Trump’s new hires for DHS will go through with no issues.
Trump’s travel ban to countries that support terrorism is a different story. The executive order is having a hard time making it through the courts and CNN is reporting that Trump is “preparing a new travel ban”.
When Trump issued the original travel ban protesters almost shut down airports.
What will they do when Trump hires 15,000 new agents to crack down on illegal immigrants?
