FOR 10 YEARS, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s investigative office has worked to keep its internal handbook out of American courts. The handbook could have been used in court to show how ICE’s push to lead on denaturalization cases stands in contrast to the language of federal law governing the process, an immigration lawyer said. “We could have used it as an exhibit in a motion to dismiss” in previous denaturalization cases, said Philip Smith, an immigration attorney from Portland, Oregon, noting the contrast.

The handbook, which was issued on January 15, 2008, and published Wednesday by the independent media outlet Unicorn Riot, makes clear that the priority for ICE’s investigative division, Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, in denaturalization proceedings is to use the most efficient means possible to fulfill a single-minded goal: leveraging the bureaucratic process to strip citizenship from naturalized Americans.

Trump needs immigrants: The pro-Social Security Republican represents a big threat to its future

America’s native-born population is aging. Baby boomers are retiring at a rate of 4 million a year.

And there just aren’t enough working people to fund their benefits and the benefits of future retirees. If trends hold, the projected population of citizens born to U.S.-born parents will decline by 8% over the next 20 years.

Legal immigration provides what amounts to an emergency blood transfusion into funds that already have unfunded liabilities in the tens of trillions, yes trillions, of dollars.

But Trump would slash it by 40% or more, inflicting near-fatal demographic damage on the payroll-tax funds.
