Just ANOTHER example Donald Trump’s disregard for laws and legality…..
Donald Trump ALREADY has people going to jail for doing what he wanted…
And they ain’t getting any pardons so far…..
reportedly told the head of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that he would pardon him if he were sent to jail for violating immigration law.
CNN’s Jake Tapper reported Friday that Trump made the comment to CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan during a visit to the border at Calexico, Calif. Trump has since named McAleenan to serve as acting Homeland Security Secretary following the resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen.
CNN, citing two unnamed officials briefed on the exchange, reported that Trump told McAleenan he ”would pardon him if he ever went to jail for denying U.S. entry to migrants.”
It was reported earlier this week that during the visit to the border, Trump told CBP agents to block migrants from entering the U.S., a violation of federal laws and court orders.
Sources told CNN on Monday that Trump told agents that if a judge ordered them to let migrants in, they should say: “Sorry, judge, I can’t do it. We don’t have the room.”….
Trump told some Customs Border patrol cops to lie to judges and send migrants back on their own….
After he left the cops….
Their union people told them to disregard the President’s illegal suggestion….
