Nearly every promise Trump made on immigration is 100 percent within the power of the president.

 For example:


It is already the president's job, as commander in chief, to protect the borders.


It is already the Department of Defense's job to build border walls.


It's already the law that citizenship is not acquired by being born on U.S. soil to an illegal alien. (No Congress has ever passed such a law, nor has the Supreme Court ruled that they are.)


It is already the secretary of state's duty to rescind visas from countries that refuse to take their criminals back.


It is already the president's job to prohibit the entry of any class of immigrants he deems "detrimental to the interests of the United States.”


It is already the president's job to remove immigrants who commit crimes, entered our country through fraud (i.e., every single refugee), are in the country illegally or who become public charges.
