Trump calls for Congress to pass border legislation

03 April, 2018, 04:46 | Author: Gladys Mathis
  • Trump kicked off Easter with an aggressive tone against immigrants pouring into the U.S

They really let them down.

And in the third tweet, the president wrote, "These big flows of people are all trying to take advantage of DACA. It's a shame", according to a pool report. Over the weekend, Trump spent time with immigration hardliners including his senior policy advisor Stephen Miller and Fox News host Sean Hannity. The group organized two similar caravans in 2017 and has aided migrants and refugees on the move for over 15 years, according to its website.

By traveling together, the immigrants hope to protect themselves from the crime and extortion that makes the route through Mexico toward the U.S. border unsafe.

"We understand there was some reporting on Fox News [Sunday] morning about a caravan of people that are making their way through Central America, hoping to get to Mexico and then hoping to cross the border", Superville says.

Donald Trump returned to the offensive on immigration on Monday, repeating a claim that "caravans" of migrants from Central America are threatening to enter the United States via Mexico and demanding: "Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!" Here are the facts. "Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!" he added. Trump blamed that inability to work on "ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release". On March 5, Attorney General Jeff Sessions informed immigration court judges that they could rule against asylum seekers without full hearings, which conservatives see as a way, in the long term, to open more space in detention centers.

But conflating youths fleeing to the United States in search of a better life with "dangerous" immigrants is not likely to convince Latino voters that the Republicans are with them, as Trump has claimed. "They laugh at our dumb immigration laws"'.

Judd, on Fox News' Fox and Friends, said the people seeking asylum would "create havoc and chaos" while in the us awaiting hearings on their refugee status. He also said people were rushing to cross the U.S. -Mexico border illegally to receive DACA status.

Palestinians also reportedly sent a nine-year-old girl through the fence, but Israeli forces were able to send her safely back. Unverified videos were being shared online, including one appearing to show a protester being shot while running with a tyre.


A group called Pueblo Sin Frontera, or People Without Borders, organized the mass movement through Mexico as a way of helping Central American migrants avoid criminal gangs and harassment by authorities as they trek to the U.S. border.

Trump rejected one deal with Democrats which would have funded a border wall, which he promised throughout his campaign for the White House would be paid for by Mexico.

Trump also reiterated his call for Mexico to stop people from entering the United States, after saying on Sunday he would terminate a major trade accord with Mexico if it did not do more to secure its border with the United States. Most say such a rule change would be a bad idea and they are probably right, but Democrats - if and when they regain control of the Senate - may, themselves, invoke the so-called nuclear option in order to roll back the Trump agenda. And he wants certain changes to the USA immigration system that some lawmakers are not comfortable with.

Trump lashed out at Mexico in his second of the three tweets Sunday.

Former President Barack Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to provide temporary protection and work permits to hundreds of thousands of immigrants who are living in the US illegally after being brought here as children. Trump said, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Trump has tried to shift the blame to Democrats, but it is not that simple.

"Immigrants who enter the United States today would not even qualify for #DACA". Congress needs to pass a DACA solution as a stand-alone, bipartisan bill, with a veto proof majority and put finality to this situation that President Trump caused himself. The president is known to watch the cable TV program in the morning.
