Why is Joe Heck still supporting this goon?

Donald Trump last night gave a flamethrowing speech on mass deportations and building a physical wall along the Southern border. Trump’s immigration plan would rip apart Hispanic families, deport 11 million undocumented workers and families, and start a trade war with Mexico.

What did Joe Heck have to say to the presidential candidate he supports and is open to campaigning with? NOTHING, which means he sees nothing wrong with Trump’s inhumane immigration plans.

From Trump’s attacks on a Gold Star family to an outright religious ban on Muslims, Heck has stood shoulder to shoulder with Trump. 

Not only is Joe Heck ineffective for Nevada, he’s threatening our economic and national security by continuing to support Donald Trump.

“Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation”

It really happened: Wielding fiery rhetoric and hardline policy proposals, Donald Trump last night somehow found a path to run further to the right on immigration.

Over the last two weeks, Trump surrogates and aides have coyly hinted that Trump might “soften” his hardline commitment to a mass-deportation powered by a “deportation force” — or at least that he might tone down his rhetoric on both.

It was not to be.

Last night, Trump not only “explicitly committed to the “deportation task force” that his aides have sought to dodge questions over, but also made it very clear that no undocumented immigrant will be exempt:

“Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation.”

It’s now clear that Trump remains as committed as ever to forcibly deporting the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States:

Don’t Fooled… It’s “Different Words,” But Trump Still Wants A Deportation Force

Donald Trump has for months pledged to forcibly deport the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. And of late, he and his campaign representatives have repeatedly insisted that 

Trump isn’t changing on immigration — at all.

Last week, for example, Trump said he’s actually “hardening” on the issue.

And on Sunday, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway essentially laid out Trump’s “deportation force” force vision, describing a joint local law enforcement and Immigration and Customs Enforcement effort that would locate undocumented immigrants and “enforce the law.”

Some Trump surrogates refuse to answer questions about the deportation force. But here’s what else they’ve refused to do: They won’t deny that the deportation force remains integral to Trump’s mass-deportation fantasy.

Trump’s made it clear he wants to break up millions of immigrant families, and until he explicitly says otherwise, the only assumption to be made is that the deportation force remains […]

“We’re Going To Build The Wall, And Mexico Is Going To Pay For It”

Trump isn’t changing on “The Wall,” even though he was a coward in his meeting with Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto.

Donald Trump isn’t changing on The Wall.

“We’re going to build the wall” has been his go-to refrain for months; it’s an omnipresent chant at his and his running mate’s campaign events, and similarly echoed by their surrogates on TV and in newsprint.

On Tuesday, Trump confirmed he would “build a great wall” and his senior communications adviser made it explicitly clear that Trump remains committed to a physical wall, nothing less: “[T]here will be a physical wall…nothing has changed with Mr. Trump’s stance.” And just this morning, Mike Pence said Trump “hasn’t wavered for a minute” on the border wall.

Trump’s promised The Wall for months and insists he isn’t changing on it.

Trump’s Tax Plan And Mass-Deportation Would Add Trillions In Debt

Donald Trump says he cares about American lives, but his anti-immigrant policies would do nothing but hurt the economy.

Trump has a great economic agenda. For him, anyway. And despite Trump’s empty rhetoric, his anti-immigrant policies would do nothing but hurt the economy.

Under Trump’s tax plan, top income-earning households like Trump’s would get the “largest cuts” — “an average tax cut worth over $1.3 million, nearly 19 percent of after-tax income” for the top 0.1%, according to the Tax Policy Center. That’s a great deal for Trump and his billionaire friends and campaign-donor economic advisers, because they benefit disproportionately — but the lowest income-earners are left with “an average tax cut of $128.”

And Trump’s running mate loves to complain about the national debt — but a Trump tax agenda “would make [it] skyrocket by $10 trillion or more.” Trump’s tax reform proposal and trade policies could […]

Remember: Trump Doesn’t Want Legal Immigrants, Either

Often lost in the shuffle of Donald Trump’s promises to Build The Wall and launch a Deportation Force is that he has also pledged to limit legal immigration.

Here’s Trump, from a press release that claims voters want cuts to legal immigration:

“When I am President we will listen to the people – not the special interests – and get immigration numbers under control, as the voters have demanded.” 

Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant fervor is so prolific that the racist birther would go beyond his bigoted ban on Muslims and plan to forcibly deport 11 million — he’d also set hard limits on legal immigration.

Darryl Glenn’s Trumpian Immigration Policies Will Damage CO GOP

The Republicans’ chances of winning the Senate race in Colorado quickly disappeared when Darryl Glenn won the nomination. Glenn’s campaign has been focused on partisanship, gridlock, and extremism since the beginning. He’s successfully emulated Donald Trump in nearly every policy position, including immigration.

Don’t expect a “softening” from either of these immigration hardliners though. Both Glenn and Trump are proudly standing by their extreme, xenophobic policies:

Just like Trump, Glenn says “we need to build a wall and enhance technology.”
Just like Trump, Glenn opposes the bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform legislation and bills like it.
Just like Trump, Glenn is against President Obama’s executive actions that keep families together, including deportation protections like DACA and DAPA.
Just like Trump, Glenn is against sanctuary cities and encourages racial profiling. He’s even referred to Denver as a sanctuary city. 
Just like Trump said he was “hardening” his immigration stance, Glenn said he was a “hardliner” on immigration. 
Glenn supports making English the national language, which Vice President candidate Mike Pence has also shown his […]

MEMO: Donald Trump Is Committed To These Dangerous Immigration Views

Donald Trump will head to Phoenix to deliver another teleprompter speech outlining the latest variant of his immigration plan. Despite the efforts of his staff to broaden Trump’s appeal and rescue his sinking electoral hopes, Trump has made it clear that he has no desire to alter his approach to immigration policy. 

Much to the chagrin of Establishment Republicans and Trump’s own advisers, there will be no pivot from Trump’s outlandish immigration proposals. For the past year, the Republican nominee has called Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers, threatened to take away U.S. citizenship from children born in this country, and insinuated that all Muslims hate America. Through all of that, Trump has made it clear that he won’t change. He’s described his immigration proposals as “a very hard-line position” and it won’t be easily abandoned. Despite pleas from Republican […]
