Almost certainly.

No word on the abomination of a rug he calls a hairstyle, though.

Blanket bans have been implemented by previous Presidents, and is also OK in some cases.
Maybe former Presidents have but, for me, this is not OK!

BTW, there was some talk of a new Executive Order planned for yesterday with a rewritten immigration rule set. I assume this has not happened yet, maybe today?

But he is not above the Constitution as he has already demonstrated

BTW, I never did claim to be President!

Although I do have some of the necessary qualifications; for example, I do spend a lot of time watching TV

There is talk of Trump trying to roll it out gently to avoid panic, which disappoints me. I find the bombastic approach and the ensuing over-reactions more entertaining.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

It'll be interesting how they handle undocumented illegal immigrants. No paperwork, no passport, nothing. Where do they send them? Destination countries where they are only suspected of originating from will just tell the US to prove it or piss off.

It has been happening all over the western world for years.

Then what do they do? Lock up everyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant every time they catch one for a minor infraction until they can "figure out what to do with them". Good luck with that. I'm sure that's going to put a fresh new dent into whatever trillions of dollars debt Phos was wobbling on about before.

Do you mean there might be countries who criticisze Trump for expelling immigrants without documents, who might nevertheless themselves actually do the same?

Do you mean there might be countries who would even build a wall to stop Trump sending such immigrants over?

Wouldn't that by the Donald calling the Trump orange?

I think the point of it is that they can't expel the illegals, can they? Unless you know of any countries which are just sticking undocumented illegals on a plane to "who-cares-istan"?

Trump's plan is completely pointless but he is selling it to the people as though it's just a quickie job to "send them all back". For all his enthusiastic exuberance which seems to get Phos fired up, he's basically trying to knit fog with all his daft executive orders.

They are already rounding up criminal illegal aliens and are deporting them.

This will work, and it does have popular support. Europeans only wish they can do the same.

Trump is right about this again.

Where are they deporting UNDOCUMENTED aliens to, that was the question at hand, naughty boy.

It's ok, I'm not holding out for a clear answer. I already know it, though, and can see where the confusion is coming from...

From my link:

"Mr Kelly's memo also includes instructions to enforce an existing provision of the US Immigration and Nationality Act that allows authorities to send some people caught illegally at the border back to Mexico, regardless of where they are from.

It is unclear whether the US has authority to force Mexico to accept foreigners."

If a person's refusal to cooperate with the authorities becomes a de-facto right to stay, there is something seriously wrong with the system.

See list of reasons that got Trump elected.
