With the US presidential elections behind, a Donald Trump presidency seems to be a foreboding era for some citizens, especially for those who go against the new government's ideals. Despite a strict immigration policy appearing as rash as it is, some suggest it shouldn't be so depending on how it is carried out.
It is not unknown that a lot of people believe a Trump regime could lead to a more isolationist direction, as per Forbes. Now that he is to assume the role, he might just carry out things he mentioned during his campaign, where one of which is to build a wall with Mexico and issue a mass deportation for unlawful immigrants. There are those, however, who doubt how it can be done the most efficient way possible.
As if that weren't enough, those who do not particularly agree with how he wants things done are fleeing further north. Perceiving his actions as politically unacceptable, there are those who are seeing Canada as an option, and such action is gaining popularity.
Despite the disagreement, there are people who believe that the immigration policies currently are incoherent, and thus need ironing out. This is precisely why Trump's appeal was widespread as he promises a safer America.
According to Tony Sayegh of Fox News, the strict rules Trump wants to enact are, in fact, needed, but should be done with a level head. He says, "When president, Trump can do things differently and correctly if he embraces Congress as a partner to enact a more long-term fix to our immigration problem. Conservatives just spent eight years railing against rule by executive order. Trump can send a powerful message if he doesn't follow the same path."
US News also adds to the suggestion by creating high-skilled immigration in line with the needed "cleanse" in America. Immigrants aid in the innovation in the country, and, if done carefully and judiciously, could address not just the immigration problem but also the country's woes on further progress.
It will be interesting to see how the new president will be enacting proposed changes in the system, but, when he does, it appears people would agree to it depending on how it is carried out.
