During Barack Hussein Obama’s time in the White House, he was more concerned with helping out illegal aliens than he was with helping real Americans. Now that Donald Trump is in office, however, he’s cracking down on illegal immigration like no president has before, much to Obama’s dismay.
Freedom Daily reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) just raided 98 7-Eleven stores across the country, arresting 21 illegal aliens in the process. The nationwide immigration raid was meant to target 7-Eleven franchises that hire illegal workers. The owners of these stores are now facing jail time for their sick harboring of illegal immigrant workers.

“Businesses that hire illegal workers are a pull factor for illegal immigration and we are working hard to remove this magnet. ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration,” ICE head Thomas Homan said in a statement.
Finally targeting employers!!

Acting head of ICE’S Homeland Security Investigations Derek Benner said that this raid was “the first of many” to come for employers across the country.
“This is what we’re gearing up for this year and what you’re going to see more and more of is these large-scale compliance inspections, just for starters,” Benner said.
“It’s not going to be limited to large companies or any particular industry, big medium and small,” he added.
This comes after Trump appeared to go back on one of his biggest campaign promise on Tuesday when he called for a DACA amnesty “Bill of Love” during a meeting Tuesday with congressional Republicans and Democrats at the White House.
“This should be a bill of love, truly. It should be a bill of love, and we can do that,” Trump said, according to Breitbart. “I really do believe Democrat and Republican, the people sitting in this room, really want to get something done.”
Trump went on to say that he was looking for a “bill of love” from Congress.
