In a ‘rant’ in front of media people yesterday Trump laid bare his fear of immigrants coming to America….Trump was playing to law enforcement people who support his efforts….There are those who do not want to go as far as Trump…
He has displayed this feelings about this for a while in his constant push for a ‘wall’ to close out some….
In a ban to stop others….
His focus has been on gang members and those who have commit violent crimes, disregarding the millions that have actually been helpful to the American economy and yes…The American way of life…
Added to all o0f this is reports of the Trump admin crack down on means of getting LEGAL immigration entry into this country also…
New reports are that he is shopping around for a new Homeland Security head because the one he has isn’t stopping enough people from coming here….
America has ALWAYS been a place where immigrants could come here to start a new future…..
While the laws and legal rules should be followed by all….
Criminalizing efforts to come here have been accelerated by a Trump admin that seems more cared then the nation was right after 9-11….
As he has in numerous private meetings with his advisers at the White House, Mr. Trump used the session to vent about the nation’s immigration laws, calling them “the dumbest laws on immigration in the world.” He exhorted his administration to “do much better” in keeping out undesirable people, including members of transnational gangs like MS-13.
“We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — we’re stopping a lot of them,” Mr. Trump said in the Cabinet Room during an hourlong meeting that reporters were allowed to document. “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people, these are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.”
Mr. Trump’s heated remarks on immigration, both private and public, appear to have resonated with his advisers, who have been moving to put in place ever-stricter policies in line with the president’s vision. Mr. Sessions said the Department of Justice would be adding immigration judges and prosecuting twice as many immigration cases this year.
“The president has made clear to all of us that we have to do better,” he said. “We are going to do better.”
The attorney general, a former senator who helped to derail previous attempts at revamping immigration laws, also expressed hope that a legislative overhaul could be enacted this year, although Republicans on Capitol Hill have shown little appetite for undertaking one….
Playing in the background is an effort by an increasing group of Republican House members to vote on a bill to lock the DACA program into a law that moves away from Residential control….The GOP Speaker of the House is against the move…But there could be enough votes to override him….There is a thought that a full House vote would see the bill pass and it would certainly pass in the Senate…Trump has in the pass supported the program, but it is anyone’s guess what he might do now if a bill supporting the Dreamer lands on his desk for his signature…More….
Reaction and pushback to Trump’s comments was swift….
President Barack Obama’s former White House photographer Pete Souza on Wednesday shared a photo of zebras on his Instagram page, which has 1.9 million followers, with the caption: “Dear sir: THESE are animals.” Though he did not refer to Trump by name, Souza has in the past criticized the president on Instagram, critiquing his statements and administration.
Trump’s “animals” comment comes about two months after the president reportedly complained about immigrants coming from “shithole countries” during a discussion with lawmakers about a bipartisan immigration deal, which never came into fruition. The comment was directed toward immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.
The president referred to Mexicans as “rapists,“ “killers” and “murderers” during the 2016 presidential campaign cycle.
Donald Trump Jr. came to his father’s defense Wednesday, saying the president was talking about undocumented immigrants who were part of the gang MS-13….
