Why Donald Trump is the most feared of all Republican presidential candidate hopefuls

Shrewd businessman, real estate mogul, author and television personality are just a few of the titles that Republican presidential candidate hopeful Donald Trump has held. After years of threatening to run for numerous political offices, including president; few took Trump seriously when he announced that he was campaigning to be the 2016 Republican candidate.

Even after Trump officially announced that he was throwing his name in among the many seeking the republican nomination, some were convinced it was a simply a publicity stunt. Trump may, however, get the last laugh as a recent CNN poll showed that 32 percent of Republicans support him as a candidate.

Trump's growing popularity and anti-immigration rhetoric has raised concerns among illegal and legal immigrants as well as those U.S. residents who favor more liberal immigration policies. On Trump's website,, he lays out initiatives for immigration reform which include building a wall along the U.S. Mexico border, tripling the number of U.S. Immigration and Customer Enforcement agents and ending birthright citizenship.

Additionally, Trump has been very vocal about his desire to deport the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who currently reside in the U.S. A Wall Street Journal article cited a recent interview Trump gave during which he asserted that with "really good management," it would "take 18 months to two years to get the roughly 11 million" illegal immigrants out of the U.S.

While many Democrats have denounced Trump and his anti-immigration plans as being immoral, racist and hate-filled; among Republican candidates, anti-immigration sentiments are strong.

More than ever, the basic rights of U.S. immigrants must be protected. Every individual who comes to the U.S. either legally or illegally does so for his or her own personal reasons. For those fleeing persecution, wishing to join family members or simply hoping to build a better life; an attorney can provide strong legal advocacy and work to fight against deportation.
