Donald Trump met with the president of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto, (Aug. 31) to talk about the future of America’s southern border.
Mexico is America’s third largest trading partner with over half a trillion dollars in goods going between the two nations. It is important that we strengthen our friendship with Mexico, especially as our local economy relies on legal migrant farm workers.
After leaving Mexico, Trump flew to Phoenix, Arizona to lay out his immigration plan.
Donald Trump’s divisive and intolerant policy proposals are impractical, cumbersome, and would extend the intrusive arm of the federal government. Instead, we must simplify the process for guest workers who live and work here legally and who contribute greatly to our local economy. After all, America’s greatest strength is our diversity and tolerance.
