    I would agree this action is slightly sinister. However, a huge mistake has been made by successive administrations, but in particular the Obama administration, in tolerating illegal immigration as much as it has whilst simultaneously making legal immigration as much of a minefield as it is.

    Typical response of people that don't actually care. "Oh yes not perfect, BUT..."

    Does anything you said after the first sentence actually have any relevance to your actual answer, which is just the first sentence?

    There's a possibility that legal immigrants will also be included.

    It started in the same way. Put Donald Trump 90 years ago and I wouldn't put it past him to do something similar. The difference to back then is that now we know back then happened, and that we have accountability.
