President Trump tweeted a clear message to illegal immigrants.
Fox News reports:
President Trump on Thursday renewed his call to overhaul the deportation system so that illegal border crossers are swiftly sent back to their home countries and not processed by the immigration courts, likening the situation
He followed up with a message to Congress: “FIX OUR INSANE IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW!” It was the latest in a series of sometimes-conflicting messages from the president on how Congress should address illegal immigration.
He suggested weeks ago that Republicans wait until after the November elections to take up the issue, but then urged the House to pass a sweeping Republican-authored immigration and border security overhaul. After it failed, Trump claimed over the weekend – on Twitter, the same social media forum he used to urge passage of the bill – that he “never pushed the Republicans in the House” to vote for it because it couldn’t pass in the Senate. He again called to elect more Republicans.
The president is tired of the Democrats standing in the way of solutions to America’s border security problem. In his frustration with Senate Democrats, he did tell House Republicans that it was a waste of time to pass the law. However, what hasn’t been reported are the constant national security threats that come from the southern border; we don’t know what the president knows. What we do know is that Democrats aren’t cooperating with the president, while the southern border remains wide open.
