Trump Targets Visa Overstayers

According to some studies a majority of illegal aliens coming to the U.S. and settling here are not illegal border crossers. They are foreigners who come on legal short term visa who decide to remain after their visas expire.

The Trump Administration is proposing to crack down on this source of illegal immigration. Among steps under consideration are sanctions against countries with high rates of visa overstays and requiring that short-term visa holders post an “admission bond” when they enter the U.S.–an amount they would get back when they leave.

In reference to visa overstaying President Trump stated, “We have laws that need to be followed to keep Americans safe and to protect the integrity of a system where, right now, there are millions of people who are waiting in line to come to America to seek the American Dream.”
