Trump made his remarks in his weekly address and as House lawmakers are negotiating legislation that would limit some forms of migration, fund border security and would also grant protected status to some illegal immigrants brought to the country as children. But while Trump has been calling for Democrats to come to the negotiating table, he has kept up his fiery rhetoric on MS-13 — the gang started by Central American immigrants in the 1980s and known for its particularly brutal crimes and motto: “Kill, rape, control.”
. . .
He said that Democrats have blocked legislation that would deport gang members and are in favor of sanctuary cities that limit local law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration authorities.
“Democrats in Congress have opposed every measure that would close these immigration loopholes and bring this slaughter to an end,” he said.
. . .
Trump has sought to blame Democrats for the controversy, saying in a tweet Saturday that Democrats should work with Republicans to fix “their forced family breakup” at the border. A draft of a Republican bill in the House presented to lawmakers on Thursday proposes a solution to the situation by allowing children to be kept in detention with their parents — overturning the 1997 Flores agreement that prevents illegal immigrant children from being held in custody for long periods.
Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change! This is why we need more Republicans elected in November. Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction. Sad!
President Trump took heat recently for calling the murderous gang members ‘animals’, as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that the gang members still possessed “that spark of divinity”, implying that even vicious killers were also God’s children. The president has pushed back, calling on Congress to fully fund a border wall, and to implement enhanced security measures to prevent the flow of dangerous criminals, such as MS-13 gang members from gaining entry into the United States.
