Imagine a candidate telling voters:
Trump postures as if his immigration policy is focused on stopping dangerous criminals like MS-13 members, but the truth is that under his watch ice spends much of its scarce time and resources going after people who pose no danger. You’ve probably seen photos of elderly people, women, and young children being hauled away. Couldn’t you find better uses for the time of those ice agents?
Trump himself avows that MS-13 is menacing American communities, and yet he persists in sending ice after farm hands, restaurant workers, and stay-at-home moms. Does that sound like a man who is strong or whose priorities are in order?
Trump’s poseur, reality-TV approach squanders limited, expensive federal resources. Let’s reform ice so that it better protects ordered liberty.
