Donald Trump’s Shocking Immigration Control Measures

Donald Trump’s Shocking Immigration Control Measures

Since a conservative presidential candidate Donald Trump officially announced his immigration plan, there have been plenty of negative comments about it. It is no wonder, since the plan is bold, very aggressive and inefficient. There are three main principals of the plan, each of them very specific and quite aggressive, and each of them comes with a set of potential problems and drawbacks for various reasons.

What caused most reactions and comments is Trump’s suggestion to build a massive wall across the border on the South, in order to prevent Mexican illegal immigrants from entering the USA. The wall is a centerpiece of Trump’s immigration plan, but it comes with a set of complications, drawbacks and illogical solutions. First of all, building the wall would cost between 15 and 25 billion dollars, and estimated annual maintenance would be 700 million dollars. In the era when America has the debt of 19 trillion dollars, it is definitely not the best idea to invest in the wall.

However, Trump comes up with a solution for this – he claims that he would make Mexicans pay for building of the wall by increasing fees on entry visas for the citizens of Mexico and by collecting remittances from the unregistered immigrants who are already in the country. However, all these points do not only affect illegal immigrants, but also those who work or live in the USA legally. There are plenty of Mexican workers who work in the USA, those who have an employment visa or a green card. Also, Trump definitely did not take diplomats into consideration, as well as people traveling to the USA. Increased entry visas fees will affect the number of people who visit USA, as well as those who come from Mexico and work in the USA legally, and also pay their taxes.

In addition to the plan of Mexican citizens paying for the wall, Trump has also aggressively announced that he plans to deport the remaining illegal immigrants back to Mexico, and on his official web presentation he even claims that it is Mexicans who bring crime and terror to the ground of the USA.

Another major announcement made by Donald Trump is that he wants to end birthright citizenship. He claims that birthright citizenship is the main magnet for illegal immigrants, which is why he wants to ban the right proclaimed by the 14th Amendment. By doing so, Trump would not only ban people from the right they had for the previous 150 years, but we can also call this the violation of human rights. Since Trump has not expanded nor explained this plan, we can assume that even the children of American families will not have right to be considered American citizens upon birth. If he, however plans to amend the Constitution and create the amendment which will only refer to the illegal immigrants, there is no chance of passing this legislation – since it is considered to be discriminatory.

Disadvantages And Inconsistencies Of Donald Trump’s Healthcare Plan

Disadvantages And Inconsistencies Of Donald Trump’s Healthcare Plan

By the words of Donald Trump, if he becomes president, he will replace ObamaCare with “something terrific”. However, when he is asked of a healthcare plan he plans to create, he gives unspecified answers to the questions concerning this topic.

First he praised the single-payer system, which is not an attitude generally supported by the Republicans. After the complaints about this claim, Trump said that he has no plan of making the healthcare system a single-payer. Also, first he supported the Affordable Care Act, saying that he likes the mandate, and later he walked back the comment. He pledged that he will take care of people and promised several times that he will not let people die in the streets – but there was no exact plan on how he is to do it.

A sketch of the healthcare which would replace ObamaCare exists, but it is full of problems and inconsistencies. First of all, Trump would keep one of the worst parts of ObamaCare, the preexisting-condition mandate. This is not in the written part of the plan, but according to his speeches we can conclude that he wants to keep this part of the healthcare plan. He wants to support the requirement which makes the insurers cover people who wait to insurance by the moment they are sick or injured. He would not charge them higher prices than people have paid their premiums all along.

Another problem is that Trump wants to open up a new tax loophole for high-end insurance bought individually, rather than closing the current tax loophole for high-end health insurance which is employer-based. This may not be a problem if our country did not have a debt of 19 trillion dollars. To put this problem briefly, the more people spend on insurance, the more they will save on taxes, which will create higher deficit.

What else poses a problem is that Trump wants to offer a deduction of the income-tax instead of a tax credit. This means that he would offer very little to the voters of the working-class, and their support is essential for him and his rise. In addition, he would offer nothing to more than 40 percent of Americans who do not pay income tax.

Last, but not least, if Trump’s healthcare plan were implemented, millions of Americans from the middle class would end up in Medicaid. The Congressional Budget Office claims that most of people who became newly insured under Obamacare were in reality simply added to the Medicaid rolls. And the problem is that Trump’s plan would most likely expand those rolls even more.

From all this we can conclude that Donald Trump is not only a man without a plan, but he is also inconsistent and undecided when it comes to the point of view and the attitudes he expresses. Also, his suggestions for replacing the Affordable Care Act are not defined and he and his party criticize the Act, while they basically have nothing else to offer.

Trump’s Suggestion For Punishment For Abortion May Have Serious Consequences

Trump’s Suggestion For Punishment For Abortion May Have Serious Consequences

Abortion is certainly one of the hottest topics, no matter if we talk about reproductive health or women’s rights. According to Donald Trump, abortion should be outlawed and all the women who obtain abortion should face some sort of punishment, as he said in the taping of an MSNBC town hall. This statement caused strong reactions among those who support abortion, but even among the pro-life group. The group that advocates life and stands behind the anti-abortion attitude has also shown disagreement with Trump, because even though they do not support abortion, their policy never involved punishing women who decide to perform it.

In this topic we really need to involve common sense. No matter the attitudes a person ahs towards the abortion, there are reasons when it is practically the only solution and situations when the abortion is simply a better option.

First of all, it can happen that a child is a result of a rape. Such child is not only unwanted, but giving birth could leave severe mental consequences on the mother, and the mother’s behavior toward the child could leave the consequences on the child as well. The pregnancy can also occur as a result of incest, which is there is much more than one reason for breaking it. Not only that a mother will most likely have mental difficulties of carrying and giving birth to this child, but the risk of giving birth to a child with severe defects is also very high.

When it comes to the birth defects, it is one of the most common reasons for terminating pregnancy. In the first trimester it is usually possible to determine many severe health issues or birth defects that the child may have, and many pregnant women, as well as their doctors, consider that it is better to terminate the pregnancy at the early stage. It can happen that a woman suffers from a mental or physical condition which may be further developed by pregnancy and thus their health or even life may be endangered, which is another common reason for abortion.

After all, women may want to terminate pregnancy because the contraceptive failed, and they do not want to have a child. To be honest, who are we to judge?

If Trump’s statement came to actualization, it would make the abortion re criminalized. This would lead to the following – women would not be able to legally perform an abortion without paying the fine, which would take them to unofficial, unregistered “back-alley” clinics. This would result not only in illegal abortions, but in many complications that could arise due to the unlicensed or inexperienced doctors, which further leads to higher percentage of health issues and even death among women.

Therefore, if you observe this issue as a rational human, you can realize that this suggestion could get lives and health in danger. Also, if you observe it as a person who respects the choices of others, you realize that the abortion should be the decision of a woman carrying the child and no politician should ban her from that right.
