Trump Demands Congressional Action Against 'Sinister' Illegal Immigrants

Path 27

President Donald Trump on Sunday demanded that Congress act to protect America from illegal immigrants crossing into America “for their own sinister purposes.”

“Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not – and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes. Congress must act on fixing the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world! Vote ‘R,’ Trump tweeted.

Trump said that he will not bend in his efforts to build a Border Wall and reform immigration.

“I would be willing to ‘shut down’ government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!” Trump tweeted

On Sunday, Trump also retweeted a July 27 tweet that showed his impatience with the lack of action from Senate Democrats.

“The only things the Democrats do well is ‘Resist,’ which is their campaign slogan, and ‘Obstruct.’ Cryin’ Chuck Schumer has almost 400 great American people that are waiting “forever” to serve our Country! A total disgrace. Mitch M should not let them go home until all approved!” Trump tweeted.

In June, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the Senate would forego most of its usual August recess.

“We have a lot of important work to do. … The president’s made it quite clear he doesn’t intend to sign another omnibus, and in order to prevent that obviously we should do our work, which is to pass individual appropriations bills,” the Kentucky Republican said, according to The Hill.

The Senate will be in recess the week of Aug 6, then return to work.

The House, however, left Washington last week and will not return until after Labor Day, NBC reported.

When the House returns in September, there are only 11 scheduled legislative days for the full House to pass a budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, Roll Call reported.

This weekend, Trump used his weekly message to push back against criticism of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, according to the White House media pool.

“One of the critical lessons of 9/11 is that immigration enforcement saves lives. We must enforce the rules against visa fraud, illegal overstay, illegal entry, and other immigration violations and crimes; and crimes they are believe me, crimes they are. These are the practices exploited by terrorists, drug dealers, child smugglers, human traffickers, gang members and countless unknown and unregistered criminals to gain illicit access to our country and threaten our citizens,” Trump said.

“Yet, leading Democrat politicians have called to abolish ICE nobody even believes it, they want to abolish ICE in other words, they want open borders and more crime. And that’s what you’re going to get. You’ll get more crime as you open up those borders. Last week, 167 Democrats in the House of Representatives refused to vote for a resolution to support the heroes of ICE. These are brave and great men and women. The’yre in the trenches every day taking the fight straight to vicious gangs. They prey on our people, they hurt our people, they kill our people,” Trump said.

“Without the brave heroes of ICE, we would have no enforcement, no laws, no borders and therefore we wouldn’t even have a country,” Trump added.
