Breitbart -- January 23
Critics: Trump's Deputies Break His Cheap-Labor Immigration Promise on Day One
    President Donald Trump's deputies have yet to stop the Department of Homeland Security from printing more of President Obama's work permits for younger illegals who claim they were brought into the United States when they were younger than 16.
    This inaction is in violation of one of Trump's most prominent campaign promises, and it also gives away bargaining power that Trump needs to make the GOP-led Congress implement his popular campaign promises on immigration reform, warns Mark Krikorian, head of the Center for Immigration Studies.
    “It is an explicit betrayal of a promise he made --- Point number five in his Phoenix speech” on immigration policy, Krikorian told Breitbart News. “That is a red line they have crossed less than three days into their administration.” [...]
    That slow-motion policy would allow the current two-year permits to gradually expire, without the liberals’ “cartoon” vision of Trump suddenly cancelling the permits and quickly rounding up the migrants for deportation, he said.
    The failure to act indicates that the Chamber of Commerce Republicans in Trump's White House --- led by Chief of Staff Reince Priebus --- are pushing aside his populist campaign promises, Krikorian warned.

Operation B.E.E.F. II ?
    Mark Krikorian claims that President Trump violated "Point number five in his Phoenix speech".
    Point 5 was to "Cancel President Obama's executive actions."
    Some may argue that, in light of possible widespread fraud, outright cancellation of DACA might not be the best way to go.
    Promise 1 was to "Build the wall." The only possible ambiguity in this promise is how the term "wall" is defined - not if President Trump will build it --- he has made it very clear that he will.
    ABP will be watching as plans for the "wall" are revealed. Depending on what we see, there is a chance that we will need a new "Operation B.E.E.F." --- to verify that the border is being secured.
    If that happens, it will take lots of donations to our 501 C (3) non-profit corporation to get the job done.
