Damn this man and his anti-immigrant agenda!

First of all, this initiative will only result in growing animosity toward all immigrants, even though it's only supposed to pertain to "aliens," or those here illegally. It will skew people's thinking and distort the perception of crime committed by undocumented immigrants.

Beyond that, how long until people are added to the list who aren't yet convicted? If people try to defend this by saying, "Oh come one, they're not going to make shit up," then remind them of the "Bowling Green massacre" or the fictional attack in Sweden that Trump referenced on national TV.

Donald Trump has announced he will form a new agency to deal with immigrant crime and pledged to publish a regular list of all crimes committed by non-US citizens.

During a landmark speech to Congress markedly softer in tone than his inauguration address, in which he dialled back his trademark brash rhetoric, he revealed that he would set up a special taskforce for "immigrant crime".

The unit will come under the auspices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Department of Homeland Security confirmed.

ICE is expected to publish a weekly list of all crimes committed by what it terms "aliens".
