Daily Mail Offers Honest Coverage of Trump’s Historic Immigration Speech

This particular article from the Daily Mail does not go into the whole of President Trump’s talk, but rather focuses on deportations.

The American media will insert and interweave the opinions of “experts” into their coverage to make it seem that Trump is a bastard and/or a fool and/or a con man.

There’s none of that in this article:

Daily Mail

It may be time to deport Hillary Clinton, a half-joking Donald Trump told a teeming mass of Arizonans on Wednesday night, and he’s just the man for the job.

Trump pledged to create ‘a special deportation task force’ within the existing Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency if he becomes president, and said he would use it to eject the most violent felons who are in the United States illegally.

He compared Clinton’s success at avoiding criminal charges with the legal-limbo status of nearly 2 million illegal immigrants accused of additional crimes, suggesting that his Democratic rival has yet to be held responsible for her classified email scandal.

‘Within ICE I am going to create a new special deportation task force,’ Trump said during a wide-ranging Phoenix speech codifying his immigration policies.

The force, he said, would be ‘focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in America who have evaded justice – just like Hillary Clinton has evaded justice, okay?’

‘Maybe they’ll be able to deport her.’

Trump criticized the Obama administration for practicing a ‘catch and release … non-enforcement policy’ that he said ‘allows thousands of criminal aliens to walk around freely [and] roam our streets’ instead of sending them back to their home countries.

Instead, he proposed, the U.S. should return to an Eisenhower-era policy of repatriating illegal immigrants in large numbers.

‘We will take them great distances,’ he said, ‘but we will take them to the countries they came from.’

And a President Trump would have ‘zero tolerance for criminal aliens,’ he promised. ‘Zero. Zero.’

‘We will begin moving them out on day one. As soon as I take office. Day one,’ he said.

‘The crime will stop. They’re going to be gone. It will be over. They’re going out.’

He said if he wins the White House he will ‘issue detainers for illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever, and they will be placed into immediate removal proceedings.’

The Obama administration has notably cooperated with more than 340 American counties and municipalities that have declared themselves ‘sanctuaries’ for illegal immigrants.

Instead of notifying ICE when they arrest an illegal immigrant, or release one from custody, those jurisdictions allow them to post bail or enter the parole system – where many disappear and some re-offend.

Trump said one major plank of his immigration plan would ‘block funding for sanctuary cities … that have resulted in so many needless deaths.’

‘Cities that refuse to assist federal authorities will not receive federal dollars,’ he pledged.

This is what reporting used to be like. The press gave us the speaker’s words and let the readers decide. When opinion was offered, it was segregated on the editorial page of the paper.
